Buying into Brooklyn: A crash course for first-time home buyers Oct 10


Buying a home in Brooklyn is no easy feat. Even if you secure a hefty down payment, you’ll need to compete with all-cash buyers or consider fixer uppers you don’t have a clue how to renovate.

We can help make the process easier. On October 10, join us for our latest edition of Buying into Brooklyn, a crash course on homebuying that will give you essential info and key strategies to help you in your home search.

You’ll get solid advice from a team of pros in a setting that is far more relaxed than your last crowded open house. Over beers at Brooklyn Brewery, you’ll learn how to position yourself as a bonafide buyer in a competitive market and get the best deal from Realty Collective founder Victoria Hagman and Realty Collective agent Tina Fallon. Real estate attorney John Serpico of Serpico, Serpico & Siddiqui P.C. will help you navigate the offer/acceptance process and the ins and outs of co-ops vs condos. Jean Brownhill, founder and CEO of free renovation matchmaker Sweeten, will tell you how to spot renovation potential in a property and find the perfect contractor, and Freedom Mortgage bankers Mark Maimon and Gabi Feuer will break down the lending process and provide tips for those with less than stellar credit.

Their discussion will cover all these bases and more, and you’re welcome to pepper our panel with questions about your home hunting, too.

Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door and include a free Brooklyn Brewery beer. Get one and make your house search less stressful, stat.


Buying into Brooklyn is hosted by Realty Collective and sponsored by:
