By the age of 18, Adam Horowitz had resided in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island and Manhattan. Growing up in New York’s most populated counties during these formative years, he learned to love and appreciate the diverse backgrounds and cultures of his friends and their families. From Rockaway to Rockville Centre, from Park Slope to Battery Park City, Adam instinctively absorbed a fundamental knowledge of neighborhoods, people and places, all the while laying the foundation for what would become his future as a real estate professional.
As a very young man, he enjoyed getting away to the Catskills where he hiked, fished and climbed mountains, returning refreshed to the city streets he knew and loved. He also became adept at creating mechanical and computer models of homes, designing both their exteriors and interiors using CAD programs in a CUNY college where he studied liberal arts.
Before joining Halstead Property, Adam worked as a Millwright, and used his immense physical strength (he’s 6’4”) to master the operation of complicated heavy industrial machinery. During this time, he completed several courses in mechanical engineering and mastered the ability to maintain, service and repair gas, steam and electrical turbines, worked with conveyor systems and learned about waste management systems. He was employed by the New York City District Council Of Carpenters Local 740.
Adam likes to think that his eclectic background, his love of the arts and his practical knowledge are invaluable assets that have a definite place in the world of real estate.“More than that,” he says, “as I enter the world in my adulthood, it gives me great pleasure to provide my clients with a ‘home’ and a ‘community’ suitable to serve their lifestyles and needs. It is also very rewarding to explain, when asked, why and how everything works in a townhouse or apartment building.”
