Michael Halpern's past careers have taught him to stand out in oversaturated fields by being himself, giving his all, and using creative ideas to shine through the competition. He does the very same in real estate, where he draws on his drive, ingenuity and resourcefulness to deliver above and beyond for his clients. "Brooklyn's Finest"...A born and raised New Yorker, Michael double majored in Communications and Music at SUNY Oswego. From there he enjoyed success in various capacities, as a professional DJ, an actor in commercials, a voiceover artist, and a national touring professional drummer and vocalist. Michael also worked in sales and customer service, learning the art of interpersonal dealings and forging strong relationships. Where there may be challenges and obstacles, Michael thrives. No matter what your real estate needs or the complexity of the market, he will navigate you with confidence and ease guided by a creative mind and clear course of action. "I am a truly unique individual who likes to shatter expectations," he says. " I take immense pride in doing a magnificent job at everything I do, especially when clients entrust me with finding their perfect home." Other than his focus on real estate, Michael is passionate about music, his son Dylan, a truly great cup of coffee and his Dog Seppi. He also enjoys playing the drums, writing songs, DJing and remixing songs whenever time allows.

Mike was organized, punctual, and once he had showed me the apartments he had available, he took extra time to give me a quick tour of the surrounding neighborhood.

Very helpful!

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Michael sent one quick response to my inquiry, but then disappeared, despite the fact that I sent him a few additional listings I wanted to see and a bunch of times I was available.

Michael is hands down one of the best brokers in NYC! Don't mess with any of these other brokers just call him. He really cares about what happens to you and his knowledge of the Brooklyn market is better then anyone else

I cannot recommend Michael Halpern enough. Within ten minutes of contacting him through this website I received a phone call from Michael introducing himself and setting up a viewing the next afternoon. Michael went above and beyond in working with the leasing office in getting me an apartment, taking care of every little task and most importantly, keeping me informed daily. From my experience Michael treats his clients as he would friends -- making sure they are taken care of, checking in during the process and working doggedly to ensure that you get the best apartment possible. I would recommend Michael without hesitation. Working with brokers can be a difficult process and he removes as much difficulty as possible. Thanks, Michael.
