Testimonials

“I can honestly say that it was a pleasure to work with the Barak / Blackburn team at Compass when I sold my condo in Brooklyn last year. The team came highly recommended from a trusted friend in the industry, and when I met them in person I was impressed with their knowledge of the area and many years experience. The sale of my condo wound up being complicated and took many months because of issues with the building in which I owned. I was so grateful through the entire process to have partners in the entire Barak / Blackburn team guiding me through every step in the sale and every complicated decision to make along the way. Christine, in particular, was incredibly generous with her time and advice, and helped lift my spirits at times when things were particularly challenging. I am so grateful to her and the entire team for their unfailing commitment and optimism about selling my apartment. In the end I wound up getting an all cash deal and everything worked out with the sale and the closing beautifully. I couldn't have been happier with the result! If you want to work with real professionals who know the real estate business inside and out, and who have advise you can trust, I recommend working with the Barak / Blackburn team.”

- Peter Heatley.

“Many years focus in Williamsburg working on some of the best performing projects has given Christine a great depth of knowledge with the local market.

“I've known the Barak/Blackburn team for quite a few years, and they always rise to excellence.My friend, Marlon James, an established author, told me in mid December 2017 that he has been looking for a place in NYC for over 6 months (!) and haven't found the right place, yet. He was looking for a place where he could live comfortably, work on his upcoming back, and pay a fair price. I, immediately, knew that the Barak/Blackburn team would solve his quest. And indeed, the agent showed him 4 places in one day, and he texted me: "Thank you for the introduction. I Love them all" Today, Jan. 9th. 2018 he signed the lease!”

- Rafael Fuchs.

- Mary Ellen Maddalone.

The Bath Haus

Originally constructed in 1903 as one of 13 Public Bath Houses in New York City, this architectural jewel has now been reimagined for 21st century living. Unique and distinctive, the facade of the Bath Haus preserves architect Louis H. Voss' original vision, maintains and restores its original architectural elements, and pays homage to the spirit of the City Beautiful movement in New York of which it was born. With only 9 residences, the Bath Haus offers a rare opportunity to purchase a home with architectural provenance in the heart of Greenpoint- quickly emerging as one of the most desirable neighborhoods in all of New York City.

Designed by award-winning NYC design firm Meshberg Group- the residence interiors at the Bath Haus are elegant and minimalist. Natural Carrara and Bello marble reference the building’s history, while 7" PID European Oak flooring and oversized custom windows bring warmth and sunlight into each home. Kitchens feature a fully integrated Bosch and Leibherr appliance package with matte white and brushed metal finish cabinetry, and each residence comes with a Bosch Washer and Dryer. There is a common roof deck, available storage, and a common recreational room for resident's use. Closings anticipated early 2021.
