About Sebastian

Sebastian is a real estate specialist with a passion for detail and an obsession for perfectionism. He was born in Germany, raised by Polish parents, and now resides in New York City. After graduating he worked as a business lawyer in Germany before he began working in real estate in New York City in 2008. Sebastian is best described as a charismatic, energetic, and self-driven personality who makes searching for a home in New York City a supremely seamless and enjoyable experience.

His love for detail, his passion for Manhattan, and his ability to empathize with people led him to pursue a real estate career. He has lived on the Upper West Side, the Upper East Side, Midtown West, and Murray Hill. Knowing nearly every corner of the city gives him the ability not only to find the right home but to offer advice on nearly any property.

Before joining the real estate industry, Sebastian studied business law at the University of Applied Sciences in Bielefeld, Germany. He also wrote and published a successful book on the international choice of court agreements versus arbitration agreements. His legal background enables him to identify and analyze issues regardless of whether they're local or international. Sebastian is fluent in German, Polish, and English.

In his spare time, Sebastian enjoys to read, take walks in the park and occasionally climbs mountains as well as hikes long distances.
