    The Harlem Properties Team was founded and currently led by agent, John McGuinness. John was born and raised in Rockland County and moved to Harlem in 2010 to start a Harlem-based real estate company. Starting from scratch in residential real estate, John built his success into a boutique firm called Harlem Properties, which he opened in 2013 and grew to a handful of agents. Since joining Compass, his team has grown to 14 agents who live and work in the neighborhood. John's business has been and continues to be built the old-fashioned way through good service and word-of-mouth.

    The team is based out of a storefront location at 163 Malcolm X Boulevard. The front of their office also houses an art gallery named X Gallery which holds artistic events throughout the year as well as real-estate educational seminars. We would love to hear about you, too, so get in touch!
