2016 | Ranked by REAL Trends as one of America’s Best Real Estate Agents
2015 | Ranked Among Halstead's Top 5 New York Agents

Entrepreneur, Deal Maker, Marketer, Certified Negotiation Expert, Family Man, Triathlete

Barak Dunayer joined Halstead Property after more than 12 years in the real estate business with a company he started out of his tiny Upper West Side studio apartment. He built his successful agency- BARAK Realty- into two Manhattan offices with over 40 sales associates. And over the last 7 years, Barak has facilitated over 400 transactions per year and nearly $500,000,000 in volume.

Barak’s commitment to customer service, knowledge, and integrity has created meaningful long-term relationships with clients, whom provide an endless stream of referrals and continue to generate repeat business. "They have become my friends and always appreciate the knowledge and experience I gladly share with them,” Barak says. “I cherish my growing number of sellers, buyers, property owners and renters who place their trust in my services for all their diverse real estate needs”

Barak was born and raised in Israel where he grew up pursuing his first lifelong goal of becoming a world-class trumpet player. As a young musician, Barak won numerous musical competitions, played principal trumpet in some of Israel’s prominent youth orchestras and has appeared several times as a soloist with both the Haifa Symphony and the Israeli Philharmonic. After graduating high school and serving in the Israeli Army (Lead Trumpet at the Israeli Army Band) he received a full scholarship to study at The Juilliard School and landed in New York.

In addition to his daily sales, marketing and customer service accomplishments, Barak is a frequent speaker at various high-profile venues. He has presented at the New York Real Estate Institute, Ivy Real Estate School, Baruch College Newman Institute, Jewish Community Center of Manhattan, National Realty Club, the Real Estate Academy and various REBNY panels. He finds his speaking engagements enriching and inspiring to the students and himself as well as a way to give back to the real estate community. Barak's comments and expertise are frequently quoted in the NY Times, NY Post, The Real Deal, Real Estate Weekly, The Mann Report and NY Magazine. He’s an active member of the real estate board of New York where he served most recently as co-chair of the education committee and the as a member of the board of governors.

Barak lives on the Upper West Side with his wife, Yael, and three daughters, Maya, Noa and Shira. In his spare time, he enjoys taking family trips to the family’s beach condo in Myrtle Beach, SC and weekend getaways to their lake home at the Pocono Mountains. Barak and his wife Yael are active members of Fifth Avenue Synagogue, and proudly support The Metropolitan Opera, American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and The UJA Federation. An avid runner and triathlete, Barak successfully completed 6 Ironman 70.3M races, 3 Olympic distance triathlons, and 1 marathon.
