They later married and Sandra established her own successful career in real estate as President and Principal Broker in Brooklyn Heights Real Estate, Inc. (BHRE).
BHRE located at 158 Montague Street since 1995 has remained at the initial location pleasantly surprising it’s great amount of repeat business while other “corporate entities “ keep shifting ownerships and locations. BHRE’s continued success in an era of corporate real estate is tied to the friendly, professional and “boutique” environment that engenders repeat business and referrals. BHRE’s office “personality” very much reflects Sandra’s style and core values.
