Born in the Bronx and raised in Indianapolis, Richard Bernstein strikes the perfect balance of New York City know-how with a Midwestern sensibility.
As a Manhattan resident for 30 years and a successful broker for more than 20, Richard brings a much-needed dose of confidence and calm to every client interaction. He's a passionate people person who believes the business of real estate is about providing peerless customer service, solving problems and reaching client objectives. Overall, he sees his role as that of facilitator, not salesman. "I specialize in building relationships, that's what I do," he says. "I see the end game clearly, and I use my experience and knowledge to reach that conclusion for my clients."
Poised, self-aware and modest to a fault, for Richard, repeat and referral business is the ultimate sign of success. "I'm not interested in being the No. 1 broker in the office; I'm interested in being the No. 1 broker in my clients' eyes."
A long-time resident of the Upper West Side, Richard is devoted to supporting his community, especially through a wide-range of volunteer activities with New York Cares. In his free time, you might find Richard playing tennis, skiing, fishing or exploring the city with his wife.
