What We Do

A New Standard in Real Estate Services

Our goal is to develop life-long business relationships with property owners and organizations we represent and to become your most trusted advisors in all real estate matters. Our methodology views each and every real estate from all angles, and bases our leasing recommendations on research, deep knowledge of construction, property management, legal and financial know-how, and, above all, an uncompromising integrity.

As a boutique real estate brokerage, we offer a level of customization, flexibility and accessibility that is unmatched in our industry.  Your organization will be represented by a senior Team Member(s) and not passed on to a Junior Associate. First Pioneer Realty is headed by a seasoned team with 60-plus years of cumulative experience, among the managing officers, in commercial real estate leasing and sales, asset and property management, as well as commercial development.  The Team’s focus is primarily in three areas of New York City: Manhattan, Western Queens and Brooklyn.

We represent a very diverse range of product types.  As leasing or management agents we work with multi-tenant office and medical properties, industrial properties and land of various sizes ( from small garages to whole city blocks), mixed-use multi-story buildings; neighborhood and prime retail, restaurants, and creative loft / flex space buildings.  We also specialize in industrial-to-office/retail conversions in emerging locations.

Each property, whether owned by multi-generational family organization, a single-asset landlord, or an investment group, is analyzed and a customized strategy is applied to meet our clients’ short and long-term objectives. Our geographic focus and expertise in execution of every step of the leasing process has resulted in close to zero percent vacancy rates in properties we represented, and landlord-tenant partnerships that have lasted decades.
