Empire State Realty Group goes back to 1989 when we started as a local real estate brokerage company serving the Borough of Brooklyn. In the Mid 90s we expanded our services to cover Staten Island. We built a solid reputation by paying attention to the small details throughout the transaction. Our practice is primarily concentrated in the marketing of Residential, Mixed-Use, small Commercial, Investment properties and Business Opportunities. We assist our sellers and buyers throughout the entire process to insure a successful transaction. We are very proud of our track record in providing a higher level of service. Many of our agents are fluent in two or more languages and are very aware and well versed in the various cultures represented in the communities they serve. Community and professional organizations are very much a part of our agents’ lives. The prevailing attitude is: “We live here-We work here-We give back to our community.”
