Over his many successful years selling NYC real estate, BJ Engler has acquired extensive market knowledge and become the go-to resource for his significant following among homebuyers and sellers, as well as developers throughout Manhattan who have benefited from his expertise. BJ has won numerous awards for his sales performance, plus earned an outstanding track record for marketing and selling both re-sale properties and new developments at top dollar.

A proud New Yorker of over three decades, BJ stands out with his cordial Midwestern charm mixed with sharp city savvy. When a job with the airlines placed him in the big city, he never left. Rather, BJ used his extensive customer service background to his advantage, managing two super-popular clubs in the city, then owning/operating a thriving restaurant in Chelsea. He ultimately set his sights on excelling in New York City real estate, a goal he has certainly met and exceeded.

BJ thrives on constantly polishing his insight on new real estate opportunities, inventory, market trends and neighborhood happenings, to stay on top of his game and to best guide his clients. Taking his level of service to new heights, partnered with the accomplished Peter Denby at Halstead, they have found buyers great homes and investments, strategically marketed and sold all types of properties for individual owners, and launched new developments such as 148 East 24th Street and 23 West 116th Street (the Adeline) in Manhattan, where as the Exclusive Brokers they directed a sales team. Together, the team has closed on over $250 Million in property sales since 2010, completed the prestigious REBNY New York Residential Specialist designation, and been named Broker of the Year in New Development in 2013.

While his focus on placing each buyer in a home they love and getting the best return on each seller’s property, BJ’s greatest accomplishments are the respect, compliments and loyalty he’s earned from the diverse clientele he serves. His clients appreciate his patience, attention to detail, dedication and exemplary results. Having lived in the West Village for over 20 years and recently moving to Harlem, BJ sells real estate throughout Manhattan. He holds a degree from the University of Nebraska, is a huge animal lover who touts that he’s never met a dog he doesn’t like. A champion for animal rights, BJ supports the ASPCA and several wildlife organizations.
