Drew’s business has always been about service to his clients no matter what field of work. He has lived in almost every borough over the last ten years, and it is his mantra that if he cannot help you find a new home, you will, at the very least, leave his office a more educated consumer in the most tumultuous and exciting real-estate market in the world.
A Columbia graduate with a dual bachelor's degree, Drew took an intriguing opportunity directing the compliance division of a marketing firm after being voted their Top Intern in 2008. He worked closely with owners, clients, and developers, garnering the experience and relationships that would inspire him to manage his own Foreign Exchange fund when he returned to New York in late 2009. After the Eurozone debt crisis in 2011, Drew set out to make a change, starting his journey in real estate and gaining his license more quickly than any other agent in his incoming class. Drew soon became an efficient, high-producing agent, and became a favorite of the senior agents in his Times Square office. His wide array of educational and workplace experiences within efficacy-based and client-focused industries provide him with the perfect balance of abilities to succeed in the NYC real-estate market. First, he makes sure to completely understand his client’s desires, and then, perhaps most importantly, he efficiently navigates the ever-changing market based on those desires, always ensuring that the comfort and functionality at the heart of his relationship with clients instills the trust he requires to do his job best.
