As Managing Director of Halstead Property Development Marketing (HPDM), Brendan oversees the development process from inception to completion. He is consistently ahead of the curve on market trends and sought out for maximizing value in all areas of new development. Brendan has successfully worked on over 200 projects throughout the New York metropolitan area, encompassing over 2,200 units with a gross valuation of roughly $2 billion. With this wealth of experience, he brings enormous insight to the development process which in turn guides him in each client interaction. He understands both the complexities and risks with each site and believes that consulting and development are both an art and a science.
Brendan also leads The Aguayo Team at HPDM. The team utilizes their deep knowledge of the marketplace - current and forthcoming - to provide their clients with unparalleled service, exceptional marketing, and invaluable market insight.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Brendan has not only experienced the renaissance in the borough but has been integral in creating new markets, especially evident in Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, and the previously undeveloped area of the 4th Avenue corridor in Park Slope. A graduate of the NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate and a licensed broker, he headed the real estate development division of Aguayo Realty Group, one of the most successful boutique real estate firms in Brooklyn, before being recruited by Halstead in 2013. Brendan is committed to sustainable design and responsible development through both advanced building sciences and sound construction methods on his personal real estate projects. One of his own developments, Haus 96, was the first multi-family Passivhaus project in the United States, which uses 70 percent less energy and 90 percent less heat than a typical building.
Brendan is an active member of the community and serves on the board of the Gowanus Canal Conservancy, advocating for the cleanup, public access and responsible redevelopment of the Gowanus Canal and upland areas. He has assisted in building affordable housing for families in Suffolk County as a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.
