NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- New York Residence, Inc., a world-renowned real estate brokerage firm, is expanding into The Bronx. This is New York Residence' fourth location in New York.
Thomas Guss, President of New York Residence has been watching The Bronx real estate market for the past year and realizes something good is happening here. He stated, "We think that The Bronx will emerge as one of the hot places in which to live and invest. This is happening now and we want to be part of it." Mr. Guss described the office build-out and referenced that all of the restored vintage furnishings were made in America, and some pieces date back 100 years. Further, New York Residence hired a local contractor and architect to build out the office, and we will continue to support the neighborhood by hiring here, and purchasing local goods.
Councilman Fernando Cabrera added, "The choice of the Fordham Road area as the location for New York Residence' first Bronx office is a clear recognition of this community's value, distinct advantages and diverse residential and commercial needs. I welcome New York Residence' full engagement with this community and will work with NYR to ensure that future development continues to reflect its rich diversity."
"It was wonderful to welcome New York Residence to The Bronx. Their level of professionalism and charisma is certainly a breath of fresh air and a new insight to the growth coming to The Bronx. I am confident they will do well in the Borough," stated Ms. Nathalia Fernandez, Chief of Staff for Assemblyman Gjonaj.
Mr. Richard Pino, Chief Financial Officer and Associate Broker, stated, "This is an amazing time for New York Residence to expand into The Bronx with a substantial investment. The office build-out is, by far, superior to any other local real estate office. We wanted newly-hired licensed real estate agents to be excited and proud of their new work environment. I am thrilled that local community leaders attended New York Residence' grand opening to welcome us to the neighborhood, and wish us much success. It is extremely important that new businesses recognize and interact with the local community leaders who have been entrusted to lead the community." Mr. Pino further added that the New York Residence Bronx office will be co-managed by Messrs. Leo Zavala and Sandy Rubin, both of whom joined NYR in 2012.
Ms. Zoina Ortiz, Community Board Member in District 4, added she has had the pleasure of working with Mr. Pino for the past seven years, and thanked New York Residence for opening an astonishing office in The Bronx.
