About Halstead

What Makes Us Different?
Halstead is one of the most visible and respected real estate firms in the Tri-State area. Our principals include David A. Burris, Kent M. Swig, Arthur W. Zeckendorf and William Lie Zeckendorf, legendary icons in the business. We have worked very hard to achieve excellent results for our clients, and have a stellar reputation built on our core principles: expertise, service, integrity and passion for what we do. This expertise is combined with an award-winning support system, innovative web and marketing programs, global reach, and the finest management team in the business.

Largest Privately Owned Tri-State Area Firm
Our offices, agents and ownership are locally based and community minded. At the same time, Halstead is one of the area’s largest real estate companies and the single largest privately-owned independent firm that receives additional value and resources via our parent company, Terra Holdings. Firm size is important, but it is not everything. Quality of services matters more. Since Clark Halstead opened our doors in 1984, we have expanded our depth of service through offices all over New York City, New Jersey, Hudson Valley, the Hamptons and Fairfield County, Connecticut. When you partner with us, know that you are also partnering with an extremely powerful network made up of 1,300+ real estate professionals, supported by thousands of worldwide partners. In addition, our Property Management Division manages over 20,000 units in New York. We boast affiliations with local stakeholders in communities and neighborhoods around the world. Together, these assets bring you enormous value as we work together.

We Are Recognized Innovators
Led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Diane M. Ramirez, Halstead is known as an industry pioneer. Twice in the last three years Halstead has been recognized as the Most Innovative Brokerage by Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, a global organization encompassing 600 of the foremost brands in residential real estate. We lead the industry with aggressive use of technology for buying and selling property, from video to virtual reality and cutting edge agent tools. We were the first to create storefront offices and take real estate out of the typical corporate Midtown offices and bring it into the communities we serve. To this day, our offices are among the most strategically placed in highly trafficked areas, creating outstanding showcases for our properties.
