Christopher Duran

Associate Broker

A transplant from Portland, Oregon, Christopher found the pressure of home brewing, organic gardening, and back yard chicken farming was too much to bear. He has since fallen in love with the people, neighborhoods, and big city pace of his new hometown.

Christopher started out in the restaurant business, attending culinary school and co-owning a restaurant at the age of 20. More recently, his career focused on project management in the architecture and construction realms. While living in Portland, he got the old house bug -- purchasing, renovating, and reselling two historic homes.

In his free time, he is likely to be found at home making the most out of his small kitchen or out exploring the boroughs by bike. He is also an active volunteer with NYC's first wildlife rehabilitation center, Wild Bird Fund.

Christopher is in the unique position of having bought and sold his own homes, as well as having been a landlord and tenant. He is confident that he can put this experience to your advantage as he helps you find your next home. Give him a call today!

Chris stood above and apart from the many sketchy and dubiously qualified brokers that we all come across in NYC. He showed me a co-op rental in Brooklyn that I ended up applying for and ultimately getting, in part definitely thanks to his input. Along the way, Chris was patient, responsive, and went out of his way to ensure the process was smooth and trouble-free for everyone involved. Those are good traits to find in any broker, but especially when applying to a co-op with a 45 page application and over a dozen personal documents - having a knowledgeable and helpful ally in that process is invaluable. Although I only worked with Chris directly on that apartment rather than hunting around (I found everything on Streeteasy), I have no doubt he's an asset to have there too. Definitely recommend him for anyone looking at rentals in Brooklyn!

I speak from experience in saying that not all brokers are created equal. I have worked with many brokers, and Christopher stands out as among the best: patient, thorough, detail-oriented, prepared, and knowledgeable. He is also among the friendliest people I have ever met. Most importantly, the apartments that he showed us were what we were looking for, he was honest about the market and the listings, and he was never pushy (he prides himself on NOT being pushy, and that pride is well-deserved). In short, I recommend Christopher without reservation (and also note: he will entertain you with stories of his time in the restaurant industry, which were a delight!). We are sharp, savvy housing consumers, and Christopher exceeded our standards. Thank you, Christopher!

My fiance and I briefly worked with Christopher Duran, we did not rent from him because we found a more suitable apartment through a private family. However, I can't thank him enough for how kind, helpful and patient he was. Even though our interactions were limited to one day he out-shined all the agents we dealt with in our moving process. He was very honest, up front, and helpful. Even showing the same apartment twice so my fiance could see it later in the evening after he finished work. I will 100% keep his name on hand for anyone looking to move to or within Brooklyn because he was such a pleasure to work with!
