Becoming Brooklyn is moving. Still staying in Brooklyn, of course, but to a different neighborhood (which will be announced in a future post, so keep an eye out). So for the past couple months, I’ve spent every spare moment I have sifting through real estate listings, picking through Craigslist, and wishing I could add $1000 per month (or maybe like $5,000 per month) to my budget. What I’ve learned? Moving is kind of a pain. Every other person in Brooklyn seemed to be looking for the same exact things I was. Sigh.
BUT… there was one person that made it less painful… my broker. Ok, I know. You’re sick of brokers. But put the bad rap aside for a second because this broker changed my mind about brokers.
I met Shay Mitchell-Peter on Twitter surprisingly, or not surprisingly if you know me, and she’s been a HUGE help in finding a place to live. She’s always working, always available, and always responsive to any listing I sent her way. Shay never pressured me through the process. She was always patient, even when I decided to change my mind 457 times.
And even when my head was spinning with neighborhoods, and buildings, and closet space, Shay was a calming presence, laying out all my options in an organized, sensible way.
Next time you move, make sure to contact Shay at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet her at @ShayRealEstate.
