When you live and breathe your work like Richard Orenstein does, success ultimately follows. For Richard, a 30-year real estate veteran, success comes naturally, not just because he works extremely hard to please his clients; but because he genuinely loves his job! A constant Top Producer in Halstead's Downtown office and frequent Top Broker for the entire company, this native New York super-broker has grossed over $500 million in sales over the last several years at the firm.

Richard is possibly the most customer-oriented, work-intensive broker in the business. He possesses unmatched dedication and market knowledge throughout Manhattan, with a particular focus on Downtown. Buyers enjoy his personable, humorous style, and appreciate his honest practical opinions. Richard's vast knowledge of the database of available listings allows him to cut to the chase & find their exact match in the most efficient, timesaving manner. Sellers too benefit from round-the-clock availability, and feel confident in his ability to analyze market changes and trends, then capably advise on pricing, marketing and negotiation strategies. When handling an exclusive, Richard goes the distance... and beyond.

Having grown up in Manhattan, scouring the streets with curiosity, Richard has a deep appreciation of the city and its architectural diversity. He's continually preoccupied with his work, and has gained particular recognition for his successful handling of exclusives, ranging from spacious high-end lofts to townhouses, pre-war apartments, even luxury hotel suites! Constant referrals and repeat business are his reward for always going above the call of duty to fulfill his clientele's needs.
