He enjoys the entire process of tracking the correct apartment for a client; he completed 52 transactions in his first year in the business. In addition, he finds joy in the minor aspects of real estate. For example, he enjoys the physicality of walking around a neighborhood, peeking into nooks, cabinets, and corners, and climbing up onto rooftops. The detective works by swapping jokes, tips, and stories with his loyal customers, supers, concierges, fellow agents. Other days consist of sharing information about new apartments coming to market. And, of course, connecting with clients and identifying the puzzle pieces of their different preferences. As well as the client’s concerns to complete a clear picture of the place they will one day happily call home.
