Brendan D'Orsay has established relationships ranging from a handful of the world's global elite to first-time renters and buyers. He has built his reputation on a foundation of hard work, expertise, and careful discretion in handling client affairs at all price points throughout New York City. While many of his competitors take a transactional approach, Brendan operates like a top advisory firm, giving each client full attention to their own unique needs while delivering the highest levels of personal care and market expertise.

Beginning his career with one of New York's most well-respected real estate developers, Brendan quickly rose within the ranks of a leading boutique brokerage to become a top agent in the firm while serving a team of agents and regularly providing mentorship and guidance along the way. He would go on to become a founding hire within the Levin Chang Team, a top-producing team at New York's most prestigious and highly-ranked real estate firm, Douglas Elliman.

Recently, Brendan brokered the successful transaction of famed artist Jackson Pollock's former West Village loft. He has been featured in several major media outlets and real estate publications including the New York Daily News, DNA Info, and seasons 3 and 4 of Bravo's top-rated television series "Million Dollar Listing New York". Brendan is also a sought-after speaker regarding the real estate market and has lectured at several institutions in the metro area including SUNY Purchase.

Originally from the Seacoast of New Hampshire, Brendan reflects on his earlier experience, "I came to this city like so many others before me: with wide eyes, big dreams, and one thousand dollars in savings. I made an early decision that nothing was going to stand in the way of making a name for myself". Prior to real estate, Brendan served as an adjunct professor at his alma mater, the University of New Hampshire. When not consumed with real estate, his passions include travelling the world and staying active and fit.

Brendan was great from the start. He met me at locations that were convenient for me and at times that worked for me. I sent him countless emails of apartments I saw online and he researched each one of them and responded to all my emails. Brendan's cost was a bit expensive, but he is willing to negotiate a little bit. I really liked Brendan's determination and optimism to find us an apartment, that made me feel a lot better about the process. Brendan never told us "no" to one of our requests. He made it work, even if it was very difficult. I did not find this with every broker that we talked to. We met with several, and some were very inflexible and not willing to look for what we wanted. Brendan put our needs first and we have already recommended him to another person, who he helped greatly.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

Brendan is the most professional broker I had the pleasure of working with. Even though financial issues with my roommate prevented us from closing on an apartment with him, he was without a doubt the best broker I've worked with. He was always on time, always reachable, and, even though we were only students on a low budget, always made me feel like I was a priority. He was aware of my needs, and even though we didn't close a deal together, he would absolutely be my broker of choice if I were to move again. I genuinely couldn't recommend him more.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.
