Elvin is not your typical real estate agent. In fact, after dealing with a string of less-than-reputable agents, he decided to put his years of sales experience and in-depth knowledge of the city to use, and become the kind of real estate agent that people trust and respect. Seeking more than success, he wanted to bring a level of sincerity and professionalism to the business, ensuring that his clients would not face the same challenges that plagued him and many of his fellow New Yorkers looking for a place to live.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Elvin pursued his dream of becoming an actor on the stage and screen after graduating from New York University. He has earned a number of exciting roles, and in addition to supplementing his income with part-time sales jobs, he has also founded a series of production companies, becoming an award-winning producer in the process. In 2013, after dealing with yet another dishonest agent, Elvin earned his real estate license. He began in the rental market and within a year was able to purchase his first home, a co-op in Brooklyn. That experience afforded him first-hand insight into the process, which he has since used to help countless first-time buyers.
Elvin has had tremendous success with properties in Brownstone Brooklyn, though he has closed sales and rental deals throughout the borough as well as in Manhattan. Whether young professionals or couples starting a family, many of his clients are looking to buy their first home. He also has close relationships with a number of landlords and is working to get more involved in new development projects around the city.
As an actor, Elvin developed a heightened sense of empathy, a keen eye for presentation, and an ability to read people and understand their needs - all of which have made him a better real estate agent. He has found that his work as a producer also serves him well in real estate, including his attention to detail, ability to negotiate and close the deal, and appreciation of the collaborative process - whether bringing buyers and sellers together or tapping his network of lawyers and mortgage brokers to build the best team for his client's individual needs.
Perhaps the greatest factor that has contributed to Elvin's success as a real estate professional is the values he was raised with. For example, he learned the value of commitment and service as an Eagle Scout. He also supports a number of charities, volunteering his time and participating in fundraisers such as an annual Ride to REiNVENT charity bike ride for God's Love We Deliver.
