Our Story

Our Story

Distinctive Brokers LLC, was started January 2006 as a small real estate brokerage with the clear vision of helping first-time homebuyers. Specifically, targeting blue-collared working families with children, Distinctive Brokers took on the task of helping them to acquire the seemingly illusive dream of home-ownership in New York City and its surrounding areas.  This was a daunting challenge since this region is one of the most expensive real estate markets in the United States of America.  Thinking out-of -the-box and utilizing creative approaches to structuring unique deals, the company was able to get the job done. Over the last fifteen years, we have helped hundreds of families evolve from tenants, to homeowners, to eventually landlords. The best part is that by fostering integral relationships with clients, customers, buyers and sellers the company has grown through referrals and client retention.


What makes us distinct is our total commitment to prioritizing the client's needs above our bottom line. Distinctive Brokers takes pride in boasting building our business through customer loyalty and referrals. We value relationships and always aim to negotiating win-win deals for parties in transactions. 


Our business has grown over the years, especially as repeat-clients have returned for our services. Our relationships with our clients are distinctive in that we provide financial guidance that accompanies homeownership. In addition, we expose our customers to various other investment options. The hope is that our clients' experience with our professional services will help them secure a safe financial future.

New York is a prime real-estate market because of its location and diverse range of people. This makes it perfect for our business model and reinforces our mission statement:

Offering a Diverse Approach to Real Investments, Globally.
