Realty Collective - Your Neighborhood Real Estate Experts with a Passion for Everything Brooklyn
You will often see the word “passionate” when describing the way this collective of real estate agents feels towards the place they live and work. Realty Collective is woman-owned, neighborhood-centric and Brooklyn minded. The work they do and the way they do it is not just about real estate and the bottom line, it is about being ingrained within and contributing to their tight-knit community. Owner, Victoria Alexander, is actively involved in outreach efforts, consistently working with and supporting many local organizations. Their Red Hook office at 351 Van Brunt Street is often donated for non-profit events, local artist’s exhibits and other community efforts. When asked, Victoria will tell you “it’s the rich history, architecture, culture and people of this borough that motivate us to protect and sustain the charm that makes Brooklyn so appealing”. And as for her team of agents goes, she only hires women and men who live in the borough and feel the same affection for and dedication to their community.
Victoria has been doing this for a long time, co-founding Realty Collective in 2005 with ambitions of instilling a set of core values that she had not seen at other agencies she experienced while working in real estate, thus redefining the stereotypes associated with NYC real estate agents. Fourteen years later those stereotypes still exist but Victoria and her diverse team of agents have set themselves apart. They build strong and lasting relationships with their clients and neighbors. Some of those relationships have started through the workshops they host. Buying into Brooklyn is an event meant to engage and advise those looking for help navigating through the first steps of the home buying process, which can be a sometimes confusing one. They realize they have a very important role to play in someone’s journey and don’t take this lightly. Victoria emphasizes that they “understand a home is more than just square footage but a place to create, reflect and support who you are”. This is why they have clients that trust them time and time again working with them throughout the years.
