Realty Collective seeing the bigger picture
Realty Collective, the Brooklyn-based brokerage, will be open its third office later this month at 351 Van Brunt Street in Red Hook.
In keeping with its mission of promoting local business and sustainable practices, the residential and commercial real estate brokerage will engage in a shared space model with Gallery Brooklyn, designed to add value to the community, increase street traffic and showcase artists from Brooklyn.
The 351 Van Brunt Street gallery and business space, Gallery Brooklyn and RC Red Hook will open with group exhibition “Lightness, Being,” curated by Trong Nguyen, showcasing three NYC-based artists — painter Jon Elliot, photographer Rebecca Reeve and sculptor Judith Braun — that will run May 19 through June 30.
“We are passionate about Red Hook. I live here, and Realty Collective works with many clients looking to buy, sell and rent homes and business spaces in Red Hook,” said Victoria Hagman, founder of Realty Collective. “We’ve been looking for a storefront location that would meet both our goals of easy accessibility to those in the area, and would fit our business model of community engagement and sustainability.”
The 1,400 s/f ground level storefront, is on a main thoroughfare of Red Hook. A local dog-walking firm uses a portion of the rear office area, while RC Red Hook will have an agent/client work and meeting section in the main, white-walled gallery space, as well as a window display showcasing Realty Collective listings.
