  • A Quick Guide to Sell Your Property Faster |
    A Quick Guide to Sell Your Property Faster By: Brian Letendre Most people want to sell their real estate as quickly and as painlessly as possible. You may be surprised at how big of an impact you can have on how quickly your home sells. Here is a quick guide to selling your home faster. 1. Price it wisely. Some sellers will price their homes intentionally higher to allow room to negotiate. This, however, may eliminate a group of prospective buyers who may view your price as out of their budget. Don't limit its reach by listing it too high. Sometimes pricing a little under what you like...

    Eating My Way Through Harlem By: Kelly Higgins A lot of my clients ask me “What do you like about living Uptown?” And before they can complete their question I find myself blurting out “FOOD” in a completely involuntary exclamation of love. I am our office “Foodie.” I have a standing Saturday morning date with the Food Network and a cup of coffee, every date night is a new culinary adventure and my “Recipes” Pinterest board is maxed out! Uptown has some killer food and in the last 7 years I have made myself a bit of an expert in finding these treasures and indulging...

Every Saturday of the year come rain, shine, sleet or snow, you will find stands brimming with locally harvested vegetables, fish freshly plucked from the Atlantic and Long Island Sound and cool, refreshing cider, local wines, milk and yes, honey.

  • Mortgage Interest Rates are Rising. What Does that Mean for an NYC Home Buyer? |
    I’ve recently had a very humbling experience which put me in the shoes of countless clients I've worked with in the past. In my many years in real estate, I've become very good at strategically maneuvering those 'oh sh#&%t moments' during a real estate transaction and coming up with quick and efficient solutions. In fact, I recently had my very own 'oh sh#&%t moment.' My partner and I are currently in contract to purchase a home. Prior to submitting an offer in early 2018, we admittedly didn't realize how quickly interest rates were rising. A few weeks ago we received a phone call from our ...

Whether it's an imperfect board package, rental application, someone on your team dropping the ball, or your own mistake - Solve the problem. There are seldom perfect real estate deals (I can count them on one finger), so our most basic function as Real Estate Agents is to be problem solvers. Because, let's face it.

  • What it Really Means to Always be Closing |
    I started in the real estate business about five years ago. Back before social media and Instagram were a tool for advertising apartments, and also a tool for throwing up pictures and videos of everyday events. Our leads came from the wonderful world of Craigslist and cold calling. Streeteasy and Naked Apartments were new to the real estate world at the time. As an agent, there’s a lot you see and a lot you do not post about on social media. And the stuff that’s not posted is the real deal. Things like being a divorce therapist.

    I recall very vividly, like it was yesterday, when one of my first encounters with the other side: “Consumer”. It was a rainy winter day. As I was waiting to show the apartment, many thoughts came into my mind. One of them was of me showing the unit and my prospects loving it and we all leave and live happily ever after. Indeed, it didn’t happen that way. Looking back, I believe I let nerves and desperation creep into my voice. Desperation turns people off fast.

After a hard day’s work, millions of New Yorkers walk through the front door of their building, and turn their heads to find there’s one more job to get done: climbing the stairs of their apartment. When going over amenities, an increasingly common request I receive is, “Can you please find an elevator building within my budget?” I sympathize. No one, after facing the typical day in the Concrete Jungle, wishes to wrap up their homebound journey with an uphill climb. We would all prefer to coast through the front door, dr...

Before moving to NYC I always lived in apartments with outdoor space and though I don’t have that now I haven’t let it keep me from gardening. Amongst the reasons to flex your green thumb are that plants clean your air, bring life and a bit of nature into your home and also serve as design accents. Fiddle leaf fig trees, Monsteras, Pilea peperomioides (Chinese money plant) and Marimo moss balls have all been trending on...

  • A Stroll with my Dog through Inwood Hill Park |
    Inwood is such a dog lover’s neighborhood. And a perfect thing for me to do is to spend time walking around Inwood hill park with my dog. A perfect afternoon would include a hike upon the hills in Fort Tryon Park, where we could sit on a bench, look across the Hudson River and enjoy the fall leaves. After we've had our fill, we'd go check out the beautiful flower gardens planted around The Cloisters museum, and peek into New Leaf restaurant - a great gem in the middle of Inwood park (and a great place to have a wedding btw!) Then we would head up to Dyckman Street and all of the al-fresco s...

  • Eat, Play, Latte 2.0 : One Man’s Search for Everything Across Hamilton Heights |
    Bohemia Blog by Agent Shaun Crossman We all are familiar or have heard of the hit Broadway show Hamilton. Like the show, everyone is trying to get their “ticket” to move to Hamilton Heights. Hamilton had the right idea with a #MoveUptown, and built his home (Pictured) on what was then mostly farmland. No longer rolling fields, this neighborhood is exploding with new restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. As a resident myself, I love to support old and new businesses in the neighborhood - #GoLocal.

  • The In’s and Out’s of NYC Renting - A Scoop on Scoping Out Smaller Spaces |
    Bohemia Blog by Agent Michaela Morton New York is a crazy place to hunt for housing, full of glitz and glam and gut renovations and tiny nooks masquerading as bedrooms and slightly larger nooks masquerading as homes. And while it’s tempting to just put on your rose-colored glasses and pray, a bit more of a Rosie-the-Riveter tint will help you envision the unseen upsides to every space.

  • Owning Within Reach - A Personal Tale of Breaking out of the Rent Cycle |

I let go of my rent-stabilized, traditional pre-war 1 bedroom TOP-floor apartment. If any of you out there live under noisy neighbors or in a building with poor soundproofing; you understand how precious a top floor apartment can be. I’ll save the whole sob story of why, for another time. The point of this story is how it all got me to a co-op in Riverdale. Curious about buying in Uptown Manhattan? Let Brick Underg...

  • Calling NYC Apartment Renters: 5 Awesome Tips To Make Moving Easier |
    People generally avoid moving frequently if they can help it. The reasons for potential renter’s or relocation regret abound — high security and pet deposits, losing or damaging treasured possessions, acquiring less-than-agreeable neighbors. Despite all this, however, many New Yorkers find themselves swapping digs often. According to the Census’ NYC Housing and Vacancy Survey, the annual apartment turnover rate is 30.5%. In other words, 30.5% of renters lived in a different apartment a year ago. In an article for the New York Times, Sofia Song, the head of research at Urban Compass, e...

There are obviously drawbacks and benefits of both, but sometimes it is a matter of what you are looking for that helps make the decision easier. Let's face it, when it comes to buying anything - a car or piece of furniture - you normally lean toward the brand new item. But when it comes to homes or apartments, that is not always the case. Then you factor in that buying an apartment is a decision that is a lot more ...

The best vehicle for this investment property is a traditional Condo (investor/rental friendly) with no board approval or very limited board involvement in the leasing process.

In fact, in the last year I helped 1/4th of my clients find NO FEE apartments. “No Fee” doesn’t mean the agent doesn’t get paid. When a broker helps you find a No Fee Apartment, the landlord is paying the broker fee. You may hear real estate professionals use the term OP instead (Owner Paid Fee). TAKE-AWAY: If using a broker always ASK if they have NO or LOW fee apartments to show. It’s ...

The building process began in the early 1800's in the U.S., starting in Boston and later came to NYC in the mid 1800's. The houses are only fronted with this dark stone but are in reality built of brick. The reason being was that b...

Since then, uptown eateries have increased to the point that Harlem’s Frederick Douglass Blvd. (aka 8th Avenue) between 112th and 120th streets has been dubbed Restaurant Row. Now if I ...

With the likes of Lido, Marcus Samueslsson's Sweetbird Rotisserie, Harlem Tavern, and Lolo's Seafood Shack, it is easy to see why. However, I think it is unfair to the culinary scene of thriving Harlem to count out what is going on over on Lenox Avenue. I personally relocated to Lenox Avenue and have been blown away by the energy, architectural beauty, and of course, the food. Hop on the 2/3 express trains and take a 15 minute ride from Midt...

  • Uptown Running |
    By Bohemia Agent Jhana Weekes I hate running. In high school running the mile was torture and really I was no good at it. I could play four quarters of basketball like it was nothing. But just running to run, I didn’t see the point. Living Uptown in New York, I am slowly changing my mind. I see now that running is a mental endeavor. Last year, I completed the Percy Sutton 5k. I was nervous going in because it was the furthest distance I have ever attempted to run. During the event, I was honestly pleasantly surprised. It felt amazing running with a pack of people thru the stree...

  • Spring in South Harlem |
    By Bohemia Agent Sam Kiernan So, as the trusty groundhog told us this year - spring is coming very soon and I cannot wait. I really dislike the winter for obvious reasons and even though this one was pretty mild, that enormous snow storm we got was my yearly fix. I know that we still have a good few weeks, so I don’t want to jinx it. I want to think forward and remember all my favorite things about SPRING. First off, I know my two french bulldogs Winnie and Bruno are going to be ecstatic when I start taking them back to the Morningside Dog Run. It is a fantastic place to ...

  • Jared's Hamilton Heights |
    By Bohemia Agent Jared Isaacson Hi there, Jared here! If you’re like me, and love eating check out some of my favorite places in Hamilton Heights. Let’s start with a sensible diner, shall we? One of my personal favorites is Bus Stop Diner, right on the corner of 135th Street and Broadway. Just like your typical diner, they have everything from yummy breakfast foods, to delicious sandwiches, wraps, and salads. I’m a big fan of their chicken caesar wrap, their DELICIOUS grilled cheese, or their chicken parmigiana sandwich! AND to make it even better, they deliver...

  • HAARLEM & HARLEM |
    By Bohemia Agent James Montgomery All photos are of my actual Adventure Harlem is named after the village outside the city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands - Haarlem. You can still see and hear the influence of the Dutch all over Upper Manhattan, or New Amsterdam as it was first known. I took trip overseas to find out what else Haarlem and Harlem had in common.   Like Harlem, Haarlem was a land occupied many times by many people. The Vikings, the English, the French, the Spanish, and the Germans all controlled Haarlem for periods of time. The name comes from the old Dutch...

  • Washington Heights - Then and Now |
    By Bohemia Agent Heidi Moreira I worked for a firm in midtown before joining Bohemia Realty Group. Most of the clients I worked with clearly said they didn’t want to go above 96th street.  I understood that Upper Manhattan had built a bad reputation many years ago, but I moved to Washington Heights about 4 years ago and fell in love with the rich culture, unbelievably tasty food, and low cost of living.  So why are so many people still trying to stay away? Maybe it’s because in the late 80s and early 90s Washington Heights was once known as the city’s Murder C...

  • Amateur Night at the Apollo –an unforgettable experience in Harlem |
    By Bohemia Agent Heather Huff Harlem is filled with so many wonderful historic New York sites, and I am lucky enough to live just a short 10 minute walk from the famed Apollo Theater located on 125th Street. I have passed the Apollo Theater tons of times, and each time saying to myself, “Amateur Night at the Apollo would be so much fun!” Well, we all get busy in our days, time passes, and unfortunately we sometimes take the wonderful gems that are in our neighborhood for granted. So, when some of my out of town guests told me that one of the top things they wanted to see in N...

  • Harlem, On Top Of The World |
    By Bohemia Agent Hakim Canter-McMillan I have lived in Harlem all of my life. When I was born in 1980 my family lived at 3333 Broadway in a 1 BR apartment in the D building. My Godmother lived in the C building and would take care of me and my sister whenever my Mom and Dad were working or just needed some time away. When I was 4 years old my family bought a Brownstone on 120th overlooking Mt. Morris Park where I played baseball with the Harlem Little League and went to the massive pool during the summer. Growing up here has instilled in me a deep love for the history and energy that it ...
