Accustomed to television and radio appearances, Halstead went on to become a regular commentator on luxury property, issues related to buying and selling real estate, and home ownership in general. He has appeared on "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous," "Good Day New York", and dozens of news broadcasts. For eleven years, he hosted the weekly radio show, Halstead's Real Estate Review on WQXR.
Mr. Halstead served as a Director of the New York Landmarks Conservancy, and served as a Governor on the Board of Governors of The Real Estate Board of New York, Inc.
