The Company
Square Foot Realty is the dominant retail listing firm in the Clinton/Hell's Kitchen area, with over 75% of the market.

We are recognized for powerful marketing campaigns, working with clients very closely throughout the deal. High speed and an emphasis on execution of the way we do business lets us work in New York’s high-paced real estate market. We place a very high emphasis on honesty and integrity and as a result we have a solid reputation in the industry - with Landlords, Tenants, and other brokers.

The company has a strong belief in giving  top level service and attention to each of its clients and to employ the highest standards and integrity. Our goal is not simply to service our clients - but to add extra value to the point that our clients rave about us (as such our clients are our best way of getting new clients). In representing Landlords, we seek to lease to Tenants that add value to a building and to a neighborhood. We have been successful in being a "change agent" in entire neighborhoods - such as Hell's Kitchen.

Speed is another important factor in the way we do business. When our clients ask us to do something, whether it be a report drafting a Term Sheet, we stop everything and we do it immediately. We return all calls and emails immediately, regardless if these communications are from clients, customers, or brokers.

We run  powerful marketing campaigns. And we do so by engaging the entire brokerage community and making 2000 brokers part of our team. We do not pay "lip service" to this practice (as most brokers do!). We treat outside deals on a higher level than our own deals.

We place a very high emphasis on honesty and integrity and as a result we have one of the best reputations in the industry - with Landlords, Tenants, and other brokers. People in the industry know they can trust us.
