Desmond has worked in Real Estate for nearly a decade both in New York City and South
Florida. He has headed and managed teams of up to 12 members at various points and
developed a stellar reputation as a results-driven, client-centric broker.
Fostering relationships, managing expectations, streamlining transactions, and harnessing
clients’ buying power are Desmond’s true fortes. Just as valuable is his extensive market
knowledge, gained by entrenching himself in the residential and investment market,
keeping constantly updated on new co-op and condo inventory as well as hot developments.
Raised on both coasts in NYC and the San Francisco Bay Area, Desmond has called
Manhattan his full-time home for over 12 years. He has lived in various neighborhoods,
residing in Chelsea since 2013. His specialty area in real estate is mainly downtown between
34th Street and Canal, but any neighborhood is fair game if you need to venture beyond.
Passionate about real estate, Desmond considers himself a workaholic; but to him, it
doesn’t seem like work at all. He loves new challenges, solving problems, and finding the
best solutions for his clients’ needs. To ensure successful outcomes, Desmond surrounds
himself with other motivated, talented professionals with whom he collaborates to cover
every aspect of smooth transaction.
Prior to real estate, Desmond spent five years assisting the national director of marketing at
major companies like Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group. He then did TV
casting for such major broadcasters as MTV, ANE AND MBC, which gave him the opportunity
travel and hone his ability to read people. “Whether making the perfect match between an
actor and a role or a buyer and a home, I have a knack for making great deals happen!”
Desmond speaks English and Spanish fluently, and travels when he can. He also enjoys
attending networking events in the city, discovering new restaurants, and being involved in
