PB: In Manhattan: Harlem, Morningside Heights and Bronx! In Brooklyn: Bushwick, Flatbush, East New York and generally South Slope.

PB: Correct, the reason I joined DE is because I have a team who now handles both Residential & Commercial sales and rentals.

PB: I like to play music with my friends when time allows (I’m a drummer and also write electro music) and meet new people.
