A native of Baltimore, MD, Rian earned a Bachelors in Communications degree from Virginia State University then moved to New York to work as an Assistant Project Manager for a property owner in Manhattan. She learned the other side of real estate, managing properties and tenants, and was inspired to get her sales license in January 2012. Rian has since done residential real estate deals throughout Brooklyn on the client side. She loves finding people homes and helping them fill a void in their life that can be often solved with the perfect place to live.
Realizing the New York City apartment search and rental process can be very stressful, Rian believes it’s her job to alleviate that. Relationships mean everything to Rian, and integrity gets her far. Prior to joining Citi Habitats, she honed her sales, interpersonal and organizational skills at Barney’s New York, and as a Human Resources assistant at The Huffington Post.
A longtime resident of Bedford Stuyvesant, Rian specializes in rentals in Williamsburg, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Park Slope and most areas in Brooklyn. A firm believer in giving back by volunteering in her community, Rian is a member of iMentor who enjoys helping underprivileged teens realize the importance of going to college. She is also involved with NYC Serve, the city’s agency for volunteering, and with the Department of the Aging assisting NYC seniors in her spare time.
Rian is an avid dog lover who loves to cook, socialize, and spend time with family and friends.
