Bedford 6 Real Estate: Is a soup to nuts operation; doing building management, real estate sales, rentals and commercial leasing. With outstanding & hardworking agents, much focus goes into doing business in Williamsburg, but they don't play favorites. Because they have been developing relationships for more than 30 years in Brooklyn, their contacts & listings stretch into most every neighborhood. Such as Clinton Hill, where Sarah led the rentals on the one-of-a-kind Clinton Rising project. The project won the Brooklyn Building Award for Best Residential Design in 2011. It consisted of restoring a freestanding mansion, used for decades, as a church and additionally, two individual carriage houses. The design is magical: old world meets avante garde modern. Bedford 6 not only brings exceptional client relationships to the table, but they also love a beautiful home. And this is an added bonus...many landlords, sellers and business owners a-like ask upon their advice about what design or configuration would work best for the market. Bedford 6 does love to talk shop too!
