Prior to joining Rutenberg Realty, Brian utilized his business economics and finance degree working for 12+ years as an institutional bond trader for two large prestigious Wall Street firms.

He has developed a reputation as an intelligent, honest and hardworking real estate professional.
Whether working with buyers or sellers, Brian employs both strategic and creative solutions to meeting clients’ needs, ensuring the best possible results. Brian provides full-service assistance from providing pricing analysis, negotiating terms, guidance through the mortgage and board approval process to even locating reliable attorneys and/or contractors.

He brings his finance background, real estate investing knowledge and his experience as a former Board President of a NYC Cooperative to the table with every deal.
