Awards and Recognitions

Best Real Estate Agents, NY State 2019, REAL Trends America
Producer’s Council 2019 (top 2% companywide)
Past recipient, Strategy Star Award, Halstead Village Office
Certified Buyer Representative/Certified Relocation Agent

I’m honored to be recognized as a “Best Real Estate Agent in New York State” by REAL Trends America (Zillow) and in Halstead Property’s elite Producer’s Council – Top 2% Companywide, the Gold Club and a past recipient of the Halstead Village Office Strategy Star Award based on my sales production, a tribute to my loyal clientele who trust me with all their real estate decisions. Real estate is the currency of Manhattan and I specialize in advising my clientele on how to build, grow and maximize their most precious asset – their home. I thrive on finding the perfect match for my buyers, maximizing the best prices for my sellers and forming lasting relationships in the process. I often draw upon my experience as a business lawyer to negotiate and advocate on behalf of my clients, navigate through issues and successfully getting to the closing table with hard work and ethical behavior.

While I work with Sellers, Buyers and Landlords alike, I’m one of less than 1% of Manhattan agents with the Certified Buyer Designation having completed extensive training on best methods and practices to represent and protect the interests of homebuyers. I’m proud to have successfully championed on behalf of seller clients multiple sales records in 2014-2018 at a variety of Manhattan Condominiums and Cooperatives, a validation of my unique selling and marketing strategy customized to each home.

Growing up as an avid soccer and basketball player, I thrive on teamwork and tap into my well-established local and national network of professionals to service my clients and exceed their expectations. I’ve enjoyed both moderating and participating on real estate panels, published articles in the likes of the Real Estate Weekly and look forward to continuing to act as a resource to my network.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with our selling experience with Rory. His legal background clearly shows in his professionalism and attention to detail. We’re very impressed with his meticulous approach to marketing the apartment with gorgeous HD pictures and video, negotiating an excellent deal and managing the Board process. Rory listened to our needs and sold our apartment on our terms to a very qualified buyer in less than 2 weeks. We’ve worked with other agents in the past that were unable to deliver these results.” Brian and Dianne L.
“My husband and I have purchased and sold multiple properties throughout our marriage, and at no time have we had an agent we thought more highly of than Rory. From the start, it was evident he had his finger on the pulse of the market. He assessed our condo property value accurately, promoted it beautifully, and pursued every sales opportunity with integrity and diligence, all the while maintaining direct communication with us. In addition, he was thoughtful in interacting with our renter, which we greatly appreciated, and always the epitome of professionalism in all his dealings. Our highest accolades, however, lie with Rory's negotiation skills, as he secured for us the highest price per sq. ft. of any property sold in our building in recent times. We are happy to give Rory our highest recommendation because he truly deserves it.” George and Jean M.
“Rory is an excellent broker. He is dedicated, responsive, truly cares about helping his clients find the perfect home and applies the right level of pressure when needed during the course of a sale. Rory has an abundance of knowledge regarding the NY real estate market that he willingly shares to assist in making the right choice about the best location to buy. This is our second time working with Rory and would strongly endorse him to anyone looking to buy a home in NYC.” Stanley and Theresa P.

Prior to joining Halstead, I was the Founder and President of Elevated Realty LLC, a full-service boutique Manhattan residential real estate brokerage. I began my career as a lawyer at an AMLaw 100 law firm where I counseled mid-size to large corporate clients in business transactions. I graduated magna cum laude from Binghamton University, where I won second place in the School of Management’s Entrepreneurship Competition, and New York Law School, cum laude as a Law Review Associate Editor and Inaugural Member of the Harlan Scholarship Program, affiliated with the Business Law & Policy Program.

As a Manhattan resident for over a decade, I’m proud to have raised funds for the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center pediatric fund by running the New York City Marathon with Fred’s Team, the official fundraising campaign for the Cancer Center. I love checking out new restaurants, food festivals, outdoor concerts and exploring the only city I’ve called home in my adult life – New York City.
