    About Jesse

    I was raised in a small waterside town on Eastern Long Island. It was a lovely place to grow up, but the day I realized that Manhattan was a quick ride by rail, I was on the train every chance I had. And when I graduated from Union College, there was no question where I was laying down roots.

    I started out getting the proverbial coffee for producers in the TV business and quickly worked my way up to their level in that rapid-fire world. Creating television programming from scratch taught me how to promote an idea, think fast on my feet, be on time and to be generous in my application of elbow grease. It was challenging work that I loved, but I needed something else. I concluded selling a slice of this city managed to best combine my skills and passions, and from Day One I haven't looked back.

    In my twenty years living here, I’ve lived in ten neighborhoods and three boroughs. I know this town. I’ve bought, sold, leased and invested and been relentless about learning every inch of the real estate business. When we work together, you’ll have the benefit of this hard-won experience. Every transaction is a family affair for me. I’m talking about the fully invested “pick you up at JFK in a snowstorm” kind of family affair. I take pride that my clients are clients for life and thanks to them, our team has become one of the top 200 in the country.

    My journey has led me here. I’m a devoted husband, a proud dad and the delighted owner of a historic townhouse in Brooklyn. My job is to help you achieve your real estate dreams and I will deliver.
