I worked recently with Victoria to rent a commercial space in Red Hook and highly recommend her and Realty Collective. She is a professional and knows the market and the neighborhood. Red Hook is a great community and having someone to help navigate that is extremely helpful. We can’t recommend her highly enough. Thanks Victoria!!
Victoria at Realty Collective was extremely helpful as I searched for an apartment to rent; she made the process easy and efficient, and her responsiveness made moving–which is usually such a difficult prospect–as painless as possible!
Victoria was incredible to work with! She made finding and signing a new apartment a breeze, especially during a pandemic! Would highly recommend working with Realty Collective.
Victoria made finding and signing a lease on a new apartment a breeze. She is incredibly responsive, efficient, and easy to work with. If I ever have to move again (which I hope is not the case), I would 100% go back to Realty Collective.
My roommate and I found a place we liked online & from there, the process could not have been smoother. Victoria took us to see the apartment right away. She was professional, knowledgeable & so nice! She was super responsive during all parts of the application & lease signing process. The whole thing was done in a few days & we couldn’t be more excited for our new place. I would definitely recommend Victoria & her company to anyone on the housing search!
It was a pleasure working with Victoria. She was very professional and knowledgeable, and helped facilitate our moving process to make it as pain-free as possible. She was always a phone call away whenever we had any issues. I am so grateful for Victoria’s help finding our lovely new place!
Victoria was the best broker I’ve ever worked with. She was accommodating, upfront and kind. Very happy with our new apt.
Victoria and her team were responsive, helpful, and communicative. We had a great experience with Realty Collective.
Victoria helped us rent an amazing two-bedroom apartment in Red Hook, and despite the pandemic, she made the experience incredibly smooth, answered all our questions quickly, and facilitated great communication between us and our future landlord. We would definitely work with her and her team again. Thnx!
It was such an amazing experience working with Reality Collective. Through them, I found my dream space in just a few days and was settled in a few days later. Victoria knows everything about the apts, homes, and neighborhood and gives you the truth about it all. Nobs salesman pitch. I almost wish I could buy another place just to work with them again!
Victoria was excellent. The process was simple and efficient, I will return to Realty Collective for their services in my next move!
Victoria at Realty Collective has been wonderful to work with – she has amazing knowledge and experience to draw on, and is very honest, caring and responsive. Thank you so much Victoria for taking such good care of us!
“Victoria and Realty Collective LLC is synonymous with wonderful, careful, creative, caring, smart, and AMAZING, all at once….(and I seldom use the word “ amazing”). We have been clients since the very beginning of her enterprise after having bought our house from the former Company Manzione., Through Victoria, we have rented out our commercial space. Because we live above the space, we were thrilled at how Victoria matches people, so that landlord and renter become friends. All are treated fairly, with respect, and Victoria has an uncanny knack for knowing who is the right fit for whom, and to us, this was a quality which is very important.! Her staff is as genuine and professional as she is… I have successfully matched her up with others, also to their great satisfaction. When we have any Realestate problems or questions, Victoria is there for us, and we count ourselves very very lucky to be her clients and friends. Our best friend has also been in touch with her for advice about Realestate… Victoria made time to talk to her, and give her stellar advice. How lovely to be able to toot her horn here on this site.”
I work with these brokers professionally quite often, sometimes we are on the same side of the deal sometimes the opposite, but they always are a delight to worth with. They are fast and professional and really care about their clients.
I worked with Victoria to secure an apartment that fell through but hours later she put me in touch with folks who were about to move out of a great apartment in the neighborhood! She has a pulse on movement in the area RC is a fixture in the community where everyone looks out for each other. Grateful to be able to stay in Red Hook due to Victoria’s quick response!
Victoria at Realty Collective was VERY helpful in finding us a place to live and guiding us through the rental process. She was super responsive to all our questions, very honest and upfront and we had the place sorted out in no time. I highly recommend her, we had no issues at all and the normally stressful renting process was very straightforward.
Very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the neighborhoods/communities/landlords they represent!
I highly recommend Victoria and Realty Collective to both tenants and landlords throughout NYC.
I have been working with Victoria and team for the past year and they have been phenomenal! They have found use two amazing tenants for our building and we could not be happier. Victoria is professional, responsive and always willing to go the extra mile.
Victoria & Emilly are terrific. They made my move and all the details seamless. Realty Collective was a standout from any other broker that I engaged with in the process. I absolutely recommend and will be a return client for my next move.
We worked with Victoria to purchase a 2 bedroom co-op in Sunset Park, Her incredible knowledge of the NYC real estate world educated us with what to expect and what to do going in, and she helped us place a winning bid on an apartment that we love.
Thank you so much to the whole RC team and especially Victoria for being so supportive. I can safely say that’s she an exception to the norm here in NY. She educated me on all the ins and outs of selling a condo in NY. Highly recommended!
Victoria was super friendly, easy to work with, and got the job done. We saw an apartment and within a week, we were signing our lease. She also stayed in contact after to make sure everything was running smooth. Thanks a lot!
I can’t recommended Jane enough! Jane embodies efficiency, charge, reliability, and warmth. And we owe all our happiness and living conveniences to Jane! HIGHLY recommend!!!
Jane Herro was incredibly helpful and communicative from the first time we viewed the apartment through the lease signing. We’re excited to get settled in our new place!
Realty Collective enabled Red Hook Initiative to respond quickly to our growing staff needs. Victoria knows everything there is to know about Red Hook Real Estate and has always kept an eye out for us.
Victoria was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and attentive when it came to showing us commercial real estate in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Not only did she look over our lease, she gave us a lot of useful feedback. We are very happy to have made this connection with her and will absolutely recommend her to anyone who is looking for commercial real estate in Brooklyn.
I highly recommend Victoria Hagman at Realty Collective. Outstanding client service, fast and deep understanding of client needs. Extremely reliable real estate professional. Victoria went above and beyond my expectations to find perfect match for our company warehouse space.
I was a first-time home buyer and found the experience pretty daunting. A colleague recommended Victoria and Realty Collective. She zeroed in on what I wanted and was even able to help me figure that out. She knows real estate, she knows Brooklyn, she knows neighborhood history, she knows architecture–and she brought all of that knowledge into my search. Six months later, here I am, typing a review in my own living room in an apartment that I love calling home. I recommend Victoria and Realty Collective without hesitation!
We had a million questions, wanted to see dozens of places, and Realty Collective was right there with us the whole time. Once we saw the place we wanted, the process moved quickly, and Victoria was always able to meet with us or answer any questions we had.
Victoria, Jane, and the RC team are great to work with. They are responsive, helpful, genuine, and know the market and business inside and out. Highly recommended.
I just signed a commercial lease for my new business, Swans Nest Yoga, and am very grateful that I got to work with Victoria on this transaction. I highly recommend Victoria for anybody in need of a great real estate broker in Brooklyn!
Victoria and her team helped us find (and buy) our first apartment! We found a gem in Carroll Gardens and we are still pinching ourselves about it 3 years later. Thank you!
My favorite thing about working with the team at RC is that they are all REAL people. Though experienced and knowledgable about real estate, they all work as a team to support one another and are relatable because they’re involved in their respective communities beyond just work…
Realty Collective did a great job selling my house in 2012 and have been continually supportive of my endeavors, and the artistic endeavors of the neighborhood. They serve as a social hub in this little village. They take a very personal approach to their clients, which can be hard to find in NYC!!
Tina and Victoria were able to articulate a narrative and design an aesthetic that really made the residence stand out.
The apartment looked fantastic and we received a firm offer within a month that led to a sale. Excellent job!
Victoria and her team were consistently helpful, professional and accommodating. highly recommended.
If you want someone that’s going to work hard to help you sell your place, look no further. Victoria Hagman did an awesome job, from my first call to the last day the property sold.
Victoria and Shyda were both fantastic to work with. We sold our Brooklyn apartment while living in Los Angeles so we really needed more help than the typical sell. They went above and beyond for us.
The minute Jane and Tina arrived I knew they were the duo to sell my apartment. They were enthusiastic and so positive that my place would sell quickly. They got the ball moving and my apt was listed in less than a week after their initial visit and it sold in about ten days for above asking!
As first-time homebuyers, the entire process was terrifying at first…but Shyda made it seem manageable. Being able to depend on her vast knowledge of the Brooklyn housing scene was a great relief, and helped keep us sane.
Victoria helped me find a buyer for my property in no time. Efficient, savvy, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Gets the job done! Absolutely recommended.
Throughout the whole process Victoria was very supportive and always easy to communicate with…was always willing to talk things through–and more than once talked me down from the ledge. She has continued to check in with me during the renovation process and has truly become a friend.
Realty Collective listened to what we were looking for and cut out a lot of the hoops other brokers make you jump through. If you want to work with someone who truly wants to make finding an apartment easy, then Realty Collective should be your first stop.
I was looking to stay in the same neighborhood (Carroll Gardens / Cobble Hill) and found Victoria’s Realty Collective. She was very down to earth friendly and knowledgeable of her listing. Applying was very straightforward.
I have worked with several buyers’ brokers, and Tina stands out above the others by leagues. She is exceedingly knowledgeable about the market, and makes herself available at all times to respond to a buyer’s need to discuss properties and strategies.
Victoria and Mary set up a meet-and-greet with the landlords, negotiated a more than fair rent and were even flexible on their fee to fit our budget. They are also very nice, locally-minded and down to earth people.
[Realty Collective] worked tirelessly showing me several different units until we found the one that met all my requirements (the perfect street, the perfect size, the perfect light)
There’s no substitute for local knowledge and Mary has plenty of it having worked in the area for many years.
I have worked with Mary Gaglio to find 2 out of my last 3 apartments and I would recommend her 100%. She’s very friendly, funny and absolutely no BS and NO PRESSURE.
I appreciate everything they do. They obviously care about the relationships between all parties. When I went to go sign the lease, I had a horrible headache, and [an RC agent] went across the street to get me some advil. They are amazing people and care about you.
I had an unbelievably easy-breezy experience working with Maryam at Realty Collective. [She] guided me through the process of putting down a deposit, getting a credit check, signing the lease, and getting my keys as quickly/efficiently as possible. The entire “ordeal” took about 4 days!
Its nice to find a place like this. Looking for an apt can be very stressful. It was all very professional and everything was laid out right in front of us. If you are looking for an awesome place in BK check them out!
Realty Collective helped us find our gorgeous apartment in Cobble Hill. It took just one visit and we loved it…[they were] helpful and clear about pricing and amenities, and great about following up–things you don’t often find with a broker.
Very knowledgeable and responsive. Great insight to the area and attune to our needs. Good experience!
After an amazing experience with Victoria, Realty Collective’s broker, when we bought our home, we didn’t think twice before hiring her to be our broker when we decided to rent the apartment on the top floors of our townhouse. She was able to find a new tenant in one week!
Chris Webb from the Grand Ave office was a pleasure to work with. I would have been happy with any of the places he showed me. The place I found is ideal for me and Chris made the whole process easy and enjoyable.
My husband and I just went thru the crazy NY apt search and just by chance ran into a sign for Realty Collective, we called and Mary showed us a few apts. She is hardworking, no nonsense and a real pleasure!
I just had a fantastic experience with Jane Herro from Realty Collective. She listened to what I wanted…and set up all the appointments without me lifting a finger. Working with a smart, capable, and fun to be with broker like Jane really makes the apartment searching Hell that is hunting in NYC a true pleasure.
Realty Collective is great! Jane was a fantastic agent, I was so happy to have found them! Not your usual scammy brokers – they actually care!
Megan listened to what we were looking for in an apartment. Megan was honest. Megan was responsive. Megan didn’t make threats or try to bait-and-switch us.
We decided to put our beloved Brooklyn Heights home on the market …because of Tina and her team, we sold it quickly and with such great success. I could not give a higher recommendation. They were easy to work with, did not stop making tweaks and adjustments until it sold!
Tina, our Realty Collective broker, is endowed with a genius for taking impracticalities and making them imminently doable–easily accomplished, even–while remaining honest and realistic throughout. And there is no apparent limit to her resourcefulness.
Had the best experience with Realty Collective. My realtor, Victoria, really knew her locations and didn’t take me anywhere that I couldn’t afford, etc…I am now living in a fantastic apartment and will definitely use her the next time I decide to move.
My husband and I moved January 2010. Broker/owner Victoria and agent Mary made the entire process a smooth one. They are also very nice, locally-minded and down to earth people. If you are looking for a nice apartment in the vicinity with authentic real estate agents they are the ones to use.
Victoria and Shyda were great! I contacted Victoria just a few days ago for help with leaving my present apartment which is overpriced to stay in the same neighborhood for less money. I did not think this was possible… These gals made it possible and at a about a thousand less.
This was my second time using Realty Collective and my second time getting an AMAZING apartment. My broker, Shyda, was extremely helpful and worked very hard to get my roommate and I our current apartment. The team at [RC] is always laid back but driven.
One of the few places thats actually willing to go the extra mile for their clients. In addition to this everyone who works there is always super friendly and visiting the office is like going to see a friend. I most definitely recommend Realty Collective if you are looking for an apartment.
Tina made the sale of our co-op smooth and easy. She has a keen sense of the market and where it is going, and a brilliant eye for staging a space to make it as appealing as possible. Tina happily guided us through the whole process and made selling our home fun.
Tina and Victoria orchestrated the sale of our Brooklyn loft with a keen eye on timing, the market, the area, and presentation to the purchasing demographic. Our home sold after one showing. We could not have sold as quickly and as profitably without the Realty Collective team.
My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Tina Fallon at Realty Collective. The process of purchasing an apartment was a tough one…but Tina and her team treated us with respect and empathy every step of the way.
Victoria / Realty Collective were extremely helpful and flexible when it came time signing the lease on our apartment. She / they were able to fully work with us and meet us halfway on things if need be. Of the realtor experiences I have had, I would definitely say this was by far the best.
My fiancé and I can not speak highly enough of the team at Realty Collective. In particular, we had a wonderful experience working with Susan Grossman. Buying a home in [NYC] was big a investment, and I truly appreciate the effort that Realty Collective put into making it happen.
My wife and I recently purchased a two bedroom apartment in Windsor Terrace. Victoria and Tina were both so patient and guided us through the process with expertise and ease until we found the perfect place for our family.
Victoria & Shyda helped me sell my condo in the Columbia Waterfront District in 2012. [They] sold my home for a price that was higher than I’d expected. I will (and do) recommend Victoria Hagman and Shyda Hoque and the Realty Collective team to anyone looking to sell a home.
My wife and I are very pleased to our chose to work with Chris as our real estate broker. He sold our 3 family home at 1034 Dekalb Avenue in Brooklyn. We were able to get above market price with a cash buyer!
Best. Broker. Ever. Shyda literally went above and beyond what any other agencies claimed to do and found me a gorgeous apartment I’m proud to call home. If you’re reading this, Shyda, I’m so grateful for you!
I have lived in Brooklyn in the same apartment for nine years so when the time came to move, it was a very daunting task. However, working with Shyda and Gino was the most seamless and easy experience one could ask for.
Thank you, Mary Gaglio! She knows the neighborhood, knows the landlords, and whenever a place popped up, she was available to show it at our convenience. She found us exactly what we needed on very short notice, and at less than we were expecting to have to pay.
Tina instantly perceived the right way to position our apartment in the market and collaborated with us and the rest of the team at Realty Collective to create excitement around the listing. She is a delight and a font of knowledge about Brooklyn and NYC as a whole.
While apartment searching in NYC is usually as fun as oral surgery…Shyda made my experience as quick and painless as can be! I don’t see myself moving out of this new place for a while, but when I do I would definitely use Realty Collective again.
My husband and I worked with Tina on the purchase of our first co-op in Brooklyn. Tina represented the seller, but knew so much about the co-op that we were interested in that we were grateful she was there. We felt so comfortable with her that, when we chose to sell our apartment, she was the agent we immediately thought of.
Realty Collective was invaluable in helping me obtain an apartment in the short amount of time I had. I appreciate how understanding Sunny and the rest of those at Realty Collective were of my unique situation and the encouragement and advice they gave me during the search.
Shyda was recommended by a trusted friend, and from the moment we met I knew I made the right decision! She is extremely warm and sensitive to the stress of the crazy rental market in NYC. She placed my needs first and found a place in my budget…
In a nearly super-human feat of experience, knowledge of the market, expertise, and masterful negating skills, Tina Fallon was able to find prospective buyers for our co-op and broker a sale during the devastating NYC housing market crash.
Victoria at Realty Collective helped my wife and I smoothly navigate the beast of real estate market that is Brooklyn in the Spring/Summer 2013. Not only did she help get the place we wanted within our targeted price point but she also recommended a great attorney and engineer.
Throughout the entire [home-buying] process Victoria was always available, approachable, honest and fun to work with. As a result of working with Victoria I not only wound up with a great new apartment but I also gained an awesome new friend!
Victoria is extremely knowledgeable about the neighborhood and seems to have good relationships with local businesses and landlords. She really went to bat for me and I found her to be much more helpful than other agents I have dealt with in the past.
We have dealt with Tina a number of time over the recent years and she has always proved to be a reliable, organised and a patient realtor…I can highly recommend her.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Shyda Hoque in my search to find an apartment in Brooklyn,NY. She was very professional and I feel went well beyond what is required of an agent. She was very responsive and made the process of renting in NYC effortless.
Victoria has been my realtor for many years. She always finds me the best places and always within my price range. She also continuously puts me first and gets me exactly what I want.
I LOVE my apartment. Apartment hunting in NYC is a daunting task. Shyda was there every step of the way and found me the perfect home. Keep up the good work.
They moved fast, but we never felt pressured, which is awesome. Maris also did an awesome job keeping in touch with us throughout the process, and was very helpful every step of the way.
I totally recommend Realty Collective! I’m so incredibly excited and thankful to Realty Collective for getting us into the place of our dreams.
