Connecting and developing relationships built on understanding and honesty is the foundation on which Steven Halpern has based his New York City real estate career.
A born-and-bred New Yorker, Steve understands the career and life progressions many people drawn to the city experience. Steve lived in Park Slope as a boy, then the Upper West Side, Astoria and Bushwick, spanning three of the city’s five boroughs over the course of three decades, as well as a career as an audio-visual specialist, music producer and DJ touring the world, before turning to real estate. Steve brings the same strong work ethic he applied in the demanding life of music producer to his interactions with buyers, sellers, investors and renters, who benefit from his outgoing and nurturing personality. Clients appreciate his honesty and straight-forward approach and often become close friends through the real estate process, particularly after they learn Steve is always ready with an answer to a dilemma that arises in a transaction and for guidance when contemplating decisions with long-lasting financial impact. “I believe in possessing as much knowledge and education as possible to ensure my clients have the best representative on their side throughout this complicated process,” says Steve. “It’s all about the relationship with the client and making sure they are happy and comfortable. I know how stressful moving can be, so I try to make it as easy as possible.” Considered an expert in NYC residential real estate, Steve has been quoted regularly in New York City and national media, with his commentary, exclusive listings and deals appearing extensively in coverage seen by potential clients and the worldwide real estate industry
