The 7 Best Black Realtors in Brooklyn

By: Black Bishop


Following the shelter-in-place orders that have been implemented here in New York State due to the COVID-19 pandemic, residents of Brooklyn have been forced to hide in their homes and resist .

Some people found that they really liked the family spaces they had chosen for themselves, and their positive feelings about their living situation helped to reduce the stress and anxiety that accompanied this crisis.

Unfortunately, for many more people, they were forced to face the fact that their living conditions had to change as quickly as possible.

For black people, this stuff can get complicated. Historically, we have always been excluded from the world of real estate. These experiences have sown deep distrust in the entire real estate industry, leaving us to navigate these very complicated transactions without professional guidance.

Fortunately, if you live in New York and Brooklyn in particular, there are many experienced, high-quality real estate experts who fully understand their responsibility to the black community and are eager to help balance the scales of economic justice.

Here are seven of the best black realtors in Brooklyn:
