Scott Olsen is a 30 year resident of New York who has a passion for brownstone neighborhoods. Having lived in Brooklyn and watched it become one of the most desirable places to live in the northeast, Scott is a passionate enthusiast about the neighborhood character, amenities, architecture and design.

With a background in finance and financial planning, Scott is uniquely qualified to help the homeowner through the challenging task of working through the listing process, as well as understanding the values in pricing properties. Experienced with properties in upstate New York, Florida and Brooklyn, he keeps up to date with regard to financial issues and how they relate to his clients and the New York property market. As for buyer advocacy, Scott is a Certified Buyer Representative 'CBR{r}’ which is a designation given to agents who complete training in the legal representation of buyers, much like the traditional relationship between the real estate agent and the seller. Scott knows the importance of preparing buyers for navigating the real estate market in New York City.

"The Halstead brokers (Scott Olsen and Rachel Wood) handled my apartment sale with consummate professionalism, and at the same time, with patience, understanding, and sensitivity. From my first dealings with them, through the pricing of the apartment, the staging, the showings, and the negotiations with the buyers, they were always reliable, calm, and level-headed. I could not have wished for a better outcome." – Rebecca, Brooklyn
"Your suggestions for renovations were exactly right. The buyers told us that it was in the best condition of any house they had seen! You made the process practically painless! Thanks again for caring and for your thoughtfulness. – Pat and Bob, Queens
"Scott really got to know us, and was fully committed to finding the right home for us. He turned what can be a stressful process into a pleasant experience. He was always available when we had questions, and explained everything to us in detail. As first time home buyers, we were lucky to have someone like Scott to guide us through the process." - Dan and Renee, Astoria
"Scott was an integral part of our recent co-op purchase. As first-time home buyers, we benefited from his guidance each step of the way. Scott helped us look for apartments, weigh the pros and cons of each, successfully navigate the competitive market, and eventually complete our purchase. He made himself available at all times of day (and night) for consultation, and was always patient with our questions and thoroughly answered them all. He is knowledgeable, friendly and honest, and we could not have made it through this somewhat stressful process without him. We feel very fortunate that we were able to work with Scott, and would highly recommend his services to other home buyers." - Katherine and Eric B.
