Cool Agents: New York Edition
Well, we agree! And we also think it's cool that their agents are musicians, artists and dancers. That's why Brooklyn, N.Y. Realtor/rental agents Reality Collective are the first installment in our new series: Cool Agents!
Here's what makes them cool.
Where they work: Brooklyn and Manhattan, N.Y.
Young Guns: The firm was started by 24-year-old Victoria Hagman, a former band manager who prefers to hire and train creatives over seasoned real estate agents
Who They Are: According to a recent write up in Brooklyn Based, the roster of agents includes Tina Fallon, the founder and producer of "The 24 Hour Plays"; musician/agent Dave Bunting owns a Brooklyn rehearsal and arts space King Killer Studios, where bands like Battles and These are Powers rehearse; Marisa Fazzina a makeup artist; and Elizabeth Adams a fine artist. Can we hang out?
Who They work With: Apparently anyone. They write on Yelp: "Our agents are happy to work with first-time buyers, people with troubled credit histories, owners of enormous dogs. We're not snobs, and we're not creepy."
Sample Listing: A 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath duplex (right) on Degraw Street in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn with access to a large basement rec space for $1,800 a month. May sound like a lot, but that's actually not bad for New York.
