Brian Sakevich has the utmost respect for one simple fact - buyers and sellers of real estate today have an endless sea of licensed real estate salespeople ready and willing to help them with their transaction. Unfortunately, the consequences of selecting the wrong partner in one of life's most important transactions can be fiscally and personally disastrous, and yet understanding what sets one real estate professional apart from the masses is very difficult. Fortunately, Brian is not your average agent, and here's why:
Brian was raised in Clifton as North New Jersey native. Brian's father grew up in Rutherford and his mother in Clifton - salt of the earth people who instilled in their son a respect for the value of a dollar; the kind of parents who worked tirelessly to raise their family in the best home and neighborhood that they could afford. Brian worked hard too, and was fortunate enough to earn an Ivy League education at Columbia University in New York City, graduating summa cum laude and as a proud member of the Phi Beta Kappa and General Studies honor societies. Whether you're a member of the Local Union or the Princeton Club, whether you're buying a vacation home or your lifetime of earnings is in your home, Brian truly understands your perspective, speaks your language and grasps your needs.
Brian began his career in real estate industry in 2003 at The Bank of New York Mortgage Company in Woodland Park, where he counseled hundreds of homebuyers through the purchasing process and helped them to obtain the necessary financing to purchase the home of their dreams. Brian honed his creative financing skills and, determined to provide his clients with the most advantageous lending programs, he relocated to Manhattan and focused his efforts on providing the underserved markets of Northern Manhattan with below market interest rates under the Community Reinvestment Act. If you're buying a home for the first time, Brian has literally given the lectures and provided the pamphlets to hundreds of others who've been in your shoes. He will work hard to educate you about the process and to find you the best opportunity to own your first home.
Seeking greater opportunities and new challenges, Brian entered into an entrepreneurial venture with Global Mortgage in 2006, creating a New York City branch of their nation-wide business. While transitioning to Global, Brian sought to diversify his real estate knowledge and to expand the breadth of services that he could offer his loyal client base. Brian attended the New York Real Estate Institute, obtaining his New York State real estate salesperson license and joining a premier Upper East Side real estate agency. Brian also earned a certificate in property management while gaining hands-on experience managing his own multifamily property in Jersey City, as well as in the capacity of Vice President of the Board of Directors of the West Gate House, a cooperative apartment complex in Manhattan. If you're looking to invest in or operate real estate, Brian understands the fallacy of "simple" cap rate calculations, the cost of vacancy, the hardship of the eviction process and the joy of positive cash flow.
Brian's robust and diverse experience in the real estate industry provides him with an unparalleled set of tools to help his clients successfully navigate each transaction while maintaining a deep appreciation for each individual's personal concerns - having enough proceeds from a sale to support the next transaction, finding the needed amount of space, the right commute, condition, school system, neighborhood and community, or knowing a property will yield the target return on investment.
Now you know why few agents know real estate, like Brian knows real estate. If you're about to venture into a real estate transaction, isn't it time you got to know Brian?
