With almost $1 billion dollars in residential experience, The Krantz + Krantz Team is led by husband and wife duo, Jeff and Kristin Krantz. Named a “Power Couple” in the Real Deal Magazine (2012), their longstanding and successful career is built on a blend of approachable professionalism and high-octane creativity. They perform at an elite level, providing clients a personable, enjoyable experience. Repeat sellers, developers, landlords and buyers rely on their clear market view despite the incessant chatter, conflicting reports and the “information overload” smattered across the internet.

“We absolutely loved working with the Krantz + Krantz team on the purchase of our first home together. They were incredibly supportive with each step of the process including a very long board package and approval. They are strong negotiators and made sure we got the best deal and stayed competitive to be accepted buyers for the place of our dreams. We can't wait to move into our new home!” - Lara L. & Thimo W.

“I was very impressed that the Krantz & Krantz team truly listened to our desires. When we were determining what price to list our apartment at, it was very much a conversation, with the team providing guidance as to what they thought was best while listening to our own thoughts and feelings. And wouldn't you know it, but the Krantz & Krantz team was able to sell our apartment at the full asking price we agreed to list it at! The team provided the full range of services that met all of our needs throughout the time we worked with them. I cannot recommend the Krantz & Krantz team highly enough to someone that is looking to buy or sell an apartment.” – Bill & Samantha A.

Jeff Krantz

“Jeff Krantz exceeded my most optimistic projections. I have already started working with him on our next building.” ~ Yoni B, Developer

As the head of Krantz+ Krantz, Jeff makes sure his clients achieve their most optimistic real estate goals. Implementing precise pricing methods and “out of the box” marketing strategies, Jeff ensures his clients’ properties close quickly at the best price. When representing buyers and sellers, Jeff employs a no-nonsense negotiation style for a seamless process all the way to the closing. He is respected among his colleagues and has an indefatigable work ethic, which can be credited for hundreds of successful transactions. Jeff has been featured in Newsweek, Billboard Magazine and CNN for his groundbreaking digital marketing campaigns and in The Real Deal Magazine and The New York Post for his market insight. He graduated from The University of California, Davis with a degree in International Business.

Kristin Krantz

“Kristin and The Krantz + Krantz Team sold our property at a record price but more importantly we always felt confident that our interests were being represented..” ~ Melissa R, Seller

Considered one of Manhattan’s top saleswomen for new developments, Kristin has overseen onsite sales for more than 10 successful condominium buildings in the city. With disarming enthusiasm and a calm- yet focused- negotiation style, Kristin possesses the ability to close deals which keep all sides happy. She fights tirelessly to achieve top dollar for sellers and developers, understanding it takes patience, persistence and flexibility to thoroughly close deals. Born and raised in Iceland, she graduated from Gladsaxe College in Denmark with a degree in Psychology and Literature and is fluent in Icelandic, German, Danish and English.

Whitney Osentoski

“There are many wonderful things I can say about Whitney, but perhaps the greatest compliment I can give him is to say that he made us feel like we were his only clients.” – Jennifer T., Seller

From your very first meeting, you'll find Whitney Osentoski’s positive approach both refreshing and enjoyable. He is a committed professional who integrates his love of New York City real estate with a unique marketing ability. Whitney's impeccable results are due in great part to innovative marketing platforms such as social media, mailers and a massive contact list built over a nearly a decade in the business! Buyers and sellers benefit from his access to NYC's finest real estate attorneys and mortgage brokers who mirror Whitney's work ethic and his commitment to consistent client service.

Mika Jones

Inspired by a love of New York City, Mika’s passion and appreciation for design, architecture, art history and photography fuels her enthusiasm toward reaching client goals. Whether it’s helping her client find the perfect home or positioning a property to deliver maximum return, she understands her clients’ real estate decisions have strong financial as well as aesthetic components. Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Mika has been a resident of Manhattan for 20 years, having maintained a bi-coastal real estate career in both cities for a time.

“Working with Mika was an INCREDIBLE experience. There is nobody in Harlem offering the customer service that I was provided by Mika and her team. She knows and loves the area she works and lives in and it shows.” – Brian – Harlem Buyer

Cameron Brown

“We thoroughly enjoyed our experience working with Cameron as we both purchased and sold apartments with his help and support. Cameron was extremely detail-oriented and he really made the apartment we were selling shine in all of the marketing materials that he put together. And those materials spoke for themselves when the apartment was sold at full ask! Cameron's finest attribute was that he was always available to us. No matter the ask, he was quick with a response, enough so that we often wondered when he slept! Buying and selling a home (especially when doing each concurrently!) can be a very stressful time and Cameron always provided the extra support to make our lives just a little bit easier. And for that, we are super grateful to have been lucky enough to work with him.” – Bill and Samantha A.

Cameron lives by the adage, "It's not how good you are; it's how good you want to be." Focused on exceeding client expectations, he is deeply embedded in his adopted New York City life, but retains his persevering, graceful, tenacious southern charm and character. Cameron shows compassion, professionalism and cares about the sellers and buyers he represents. His willingness to truly get to know a client’s background, interests and goals allow him to determine their real estate requirements.
