For 13 years, Halstead has been consistently recognizing me as a top producer - a preeminent closer who has fun fulfilling the property dreams of my clients. I earn this recognition every day by continually bringing my sales clients the best prices from the best buyers, and by guiding my buyers to their dream homes. I know how to navigate markets, and I have a great time dedicating myself to exceeding the expectations of my buyers and sellers. Named one of “Manhattan's Premier Brokers” by NY Living magazine, I've been a featured real estate expert on NBC, PBS, CBS, FOX, CNN, CNBC, and in the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, NY Magazine, Financial Times, NY Observer, NY Sun, & NY Post. For the HGTV television network, I serve as the on-camera New York pricing expert for their nationally televised show, My Home Is Worth What?, and the New York on-camera host for HGTV's National Open House. I am also the on-camera Manhattan property expert for the BBC, and regularly feature my clients' homes on NBC's Open House NYC. I lead seminars for my fellow Halstead agents on how to effectively market homes, how to best work with buyers, and how to propel their businesses. I'm privileged to serve as a speaker for the Real Estate Board of New York's industry-wide Masters Series talks on successfully selling property and properly serving clients, and as a Board Member for Brokers Build - Habitat for Humanity, where I donate a portion of every commission.
I’ve sold condos, co-ops, townhouses, and lofts all over New York—Upper Westside, Upper Eastside, Harlem, Midtown East and West, Chelsea, Greenwich Village, Washington Heights, Tribeca, Soho, Inwood, Riverdale, East Village, the Flatiron and Financial Districts, and all over Brooklyn. Beyond my work in New York, I’ve built a global property network, and I employ it to link contacts all over the world to agents whom I deem effective for my clients. From Sydney to Paris, from Cleveland to Mumbai, from Sao Paulo to Istanbul, I pride myself in my ability to be the property resource not only for my clients in New York, but around the world. My real estate business is built upon a solid foundation of anticipating and satisfying the needs of my clients, applying my proven, effective, unique sales strategy, keen pricing, seasoned negotiating, and working in a stress-free, proven way that keeps my clients well served. Daily, I build my success upon the happiness of and referrals from my clients.
Born in Richmond, VA, I was raised in Atlanta, GA, and Charlotte, NC. I graduated from The College of William and Mary, with a double concentration in Government and Theatre. My studies also took me to Paris, where I developed my fluency in French, and to North Carolina School of the Arts, where I studied acting.
I fulfilled a lifelong dream when I moved to New York. While working in Guest Services and Sales at the Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton Hotels, I studied with legendary actress Uta Hagan. I’ve played roles Off-Broadway, on TV, in Films, in numerous TV/Radio commercials, and have voiced several audiobooks. My true joy and success, however, was discovered when I began selling homes. I enjoy my work because I enjoy pleasing my clients. Once my clients are perfectly happy, I like to bike ride along the Hudson, study New York City history, and travel. I’ve explored many exciting destinations around the USA, Europe, and South America, but my favorite place is still New York City.
I’ve lived in this incredible city since 1991 – Downtown, Midtown, and currently in a wonderful Prewar Co-op I own on the Upper Westside, where I served on my building’s Board of Directors. I have a great time fulfilling my clients’ property dreams—here in New York, and around the world.

Considéré comme l’un des meilleurs éléments de Halstead, je me consacre entièrement à mes clients dont je m’engage à satisfaire les attentes. Natif du sud et diplômé du College of William and Mary, je parle couramment français et ai voyagé à travers tous les Etats-Unis et l’Europe. J’habite cette ville incroyable depuis 1991 (au centre ville, en périphérie et dans le quartier du Upper West Side). Je connais Manhattan. Je vends Manhattan. (Je suis membre du Halstead Platinum Circle, du Conseil des Producteurs et du Conseil de l’Immobilier de New York). « Nous tentions de faire des ventes à un moment terrible et sans précédent dans l’histoire de New York : la semaine qui a suivi les évènements du 11 septembre 2001. Brian s’est immédiatement mis au travail, gérant la pression et l’incertitude de ces instants avec finesse et un optimisme déterminé ; sa persévérance a porté ses fruits. Il a rapidement réalisé une belle transaction avec un acquéreur sérieux ». Lee et Caryn Rudy.
« Brian se démarque par ses talents de défenseur enthousiaste, créatif et professionnel pour ses clients. Nous sommes certains que sa crédibilité et son charme ont influencé de manière positive les décisions de nos acheteurs potentiels. Brian nous a tenu à l’écart des tracas de la vente immobilière tout en nous tenant informés à chaque étape du processus ». Meg et Josh Hutson.
« Brian est impressionnant. La qualité de son travail n’a jamais été surpassée et son intelligence en matière de marketing a immédiatement dynamisé mon bien immobilier. Le dévouement de Brian, son expérience, son énergie et son enthousiasme ont joué en ma faveur ». TL Stuart.

Across the country, home prices are up, foreclosures are down and mortgage rates are unbelievably low. The inventory of homes is also low, which means it's hard for buyers to find the right place.
