"It is with the sincerest gratitude that I write this acknowledgment of Matt Brown and Peter Cossio as our professional representatives. As my wife and I sought to sell our townhome, Matt and Peter went above and beyond the typical real estate broker role, becoming trusted advisors who we relied on for unvarnished advice and counsel. Throughout the entire process from staging the home to the day of closing, Matt and Peter were professional, conscientious, and motivated. I always felt as though my wife and I were their only clients, even though I knew that was not the case. I wholeheartedly recommend Matt and Peter toanyone in need of real estate services (buy or sell) and would not hesitate to come back to them for any future real estate transactions." - Chris M., Hoboken

Your marketing stood above all others. We continue to recommend you to anyone we know looking to buy or sell a property." - Craig and Joanne L., Hoboken
"Peter Cossio and Matt Brown did a fabulous job in helping us sell our house. They are extremely professional and knew exactly how to price our home to give us the best possible outcome. The marketing materials they produce are superior to any I have seen by other firms. They are very knowledgeable of the area and the market and were very pleasant to work with. I absolutely recommend them!!!" - Jane L., Hoboken
"Without even minor hesitation, Halstead Property is where you should be if you're looking to buy or sell in the Hoboken and Jersey City areas.

You went above and beyond the call." - Dawn D. & Joseph R.
"Matt and Peter are truly exceptional. When we were looking to sell our place, Matt and Peter were highly recommended by two separate people. After working with them, I understand why. They know the area very well and made the process of selling our brownstone very seamless. They really helped us every step of the way, were incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and professional. Their attention to detail and connections and reach really helped us to sell our home very quickly for a great price. They really went the extra mile.
