Brooklyn defies labels. It is at once funky, elegant, down-to-earth, exclusive, serene, a little wild, and much more. Here in New York City’s most populous borough, you can turn a corner and step into a completely different world. While this sounds exciting, if you’re a newcomer to the area this can often be confusing. It becomes even more so if you’re a home buyer looking for the right home and the right neighborhood. This is when an experienced Brooklyn, New York Realtor comes in handy.

Brooklyn is made up of a mosaic of different neighborhoods, each one distinct and offering a different set of features. A small-town feel and historic homes dominate in Brooklyn Heights, for example, while Downtown Brooklyn is faster-paced and offers high-rise housing options.

The right Brooklyn, Realtor not only facilitates the actual buying process, but is constantly by your side from the time you start looking to the time you close and even beyond. Your Brooklyn, Realtor should be able to give you in-depth insights not just on the homes you’re looking at themselves, but also on the neighborhoods you’re considering. While it’s always advisable for you to conduct your own research, nothing beats the insights that a seasoned professional can provide. With the right Brooklyn, New York Realtor to guide and advise you, the process of finding, buying and moving into the right home becomes much simpler.

Explore the abundance of Brooklyn real estate options with the support and guidance of Brooklyn, Realtor Charles D’Alessandro. No one knows the borough better.

Thanksgiving in Brooklyn New York: Let’s Get a Little Down to Earth

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Yesterday, I was driving through the  neighborhoods of Brooklyn N.Y., wondering if a potential buyer was going to show up to look at the homes in the Midwood section of Brooklyn I’m showing. I’d had a bad day; the car didn’t want to start, what I’d planned to wear was dirty, I’d run out of milk and so on, and so on. Needless to say, I wasn’t in the best of moods.

As I stopped at a light, grouching because the light would make me late, I happened to look over and see a woman with her daughter. The little girl had holes in her coat, a ragged hat, torn up shoes and a teddy bear missing an eye that she clutched as she smiled up at her worried mother – who had a “Please help” sign in her hands. As I drove on to show the Home, and further throughout the day, that little girl’s smile stuck with me.

Last night, I came across a news broadcast about a family of five living in a one-room apartment after losing their house and I remembered that little girl. All of this comes down to one thing…

It’s coming up on Thanksgiving, people are searching turkey recipes, decorations are being pulled out… and the current problems in the world make it hard to find something to be grateful for. However, they’re there if you only look.

If you have a home and you’re trying to sell it, it’s understandable that you might be upset if it’s not moving. As hard as it may be, however, remember that at least you have a home to sell.

If you’re looking for a home to buy and you can’t afford the fancy one you wanted but you can afford a slightly smaller one, remember – at least you can afford something.

If you’re upset that your job isn’t paying enough, you’re working long hours or not enough, remember the millions that no longer have a job.

Whatever your problem that may be weighing you down when Thanksgiving rolls around, remember that it truly could be worse. It is worse, for so many people.

I’ll even start the list: I’m grateful for all of my clients. I’m grateful that I have Brooklyn  condos and homes to show and potential buyers that want to see them. For my readers, my friends, my family and my own home… Happy Thanksgiving, from Charles D’Alessandro and Brooklyn Real Estate Sales, may you always have something to be grateful for!

The Key To Any Realtors Success! Keep Your Eyes On The Prize!

Charles D'Alessandro Fillmore Real Estate, Brooklyn N.Y.

I am often asked what is the key to  success as a  Realtor. Prospecting for leads such as cold calling for sale by owners, handing out business cards to everyone you meet, networking becomes your life.   These are some of the things that come to mind, as well as knowing your market like the back of your hand. I also think working with a company like Fillmore Real Estate is a huge boost. Fillmore Real Estate has been selling real estate  in Brooklyn, New York for over 40 years, which will give any real estate agent instant name recognition.  The number one key to any Realtor’s success starts with your name!   My name is Charles D’Alessandro, I am a Realtor with Fillmore Real Estate. I say this proudly. My brand is me!  My product is me! I have spent over 23 years building my reputation selling Brooklyn real estate, one client at a time, one appointment at a time, one transaction at a time. I work for referrals! I find that if I work with the end result in mind being a referral from the parties involved, I could never go wrong.   Someone once taught me, “If you take the money out from the situation, the answer is clear”.  Referrals are the ultimate prize.  The key to success is to be a professional,  be consistent, know your stuff , and follow the golden rule. Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You!  Try it! You will like what it brings, Success!

Fillmore Real Estate Hosts Brooklyn’s First Virtual Real Estate BarCamp !

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Fillmore Real Estate had an extremely exciting day on November 17th hosting Brooklyn’s first Virtual Real Estate Bar Camp  .  The day was action-packed with 7 hours of real estate seminars held  at Fillmore Real Estates,  Brooklyn Corporate Headquarters, at 2990 Avenue U.

Brooklyn's First Real Estate Virtual Bar Camp!

Brooklyn's First Real Estate Virtual Bar Camp!

The day exceeded all expectations as 3 rooms had standing room only attendance.  When we first found out about the VREBC, we thought that it would be great to have one session in our main classroom that would seat about 35 attendees, but that all changed quickly.  In four hours time, the event sold out and we needed to rethink the strategy.  As the attendance list grew, we added on a few rooms and took over other space in our corporate office that is regularly used for sales.  Each of the three rooms ended up having full capacity crowds and the team here had to adapt and add extra chairs.

The feedback from the agents was extremely positive and it provided me with the opportunity to spend a day with the agents and then kick back at the social meet up party afterward.
I must tell you that I am extremely proud and grateful for an amazing team here at Fillmore that helped to pull this event off.  And my hat’s off to the managers that supported the event and the amazing agents that stayed the whole 7hours and then some for training and networking.

This was a proud day for the real estate industry and I feel blessed that we were able to play a part in it.

Thanks to Jim Cronin of and his great group of supporters for giving birth to this amazing event, and thanks to the speakers that made the content of the day so valuable and rewarding.
What a day it was for Fillmore Real Estate and all the Realtors that attended!
