Work With Steve


  • “We couldn’t ask for a better real estate agent than Steve Segretta. He helped us sell our co-op apartment *and* buy our new condo, and we felt incredibly cared for in both transactions. Steve goes above and beyond, from sending thorough comp sheets to buying us a thoughtful gift when we closed on our new home. He was always reachable and extremely responsive, checking in when things took too long, spending as much time as we needed to talk everything through.

Selling Your Home

When representing you as Listing Agent on the sale of your home, my primary aim is to help you secure the highest possible selling price. This objective hinges on setting the most competitive listing price and executing a strategic marketing plan. To fulfill this commitment, I provide an array of resources and services, including:

Leveraging Extensive Professional Networks

As a part of Brown Harris Stevens, the largest privately held residential real estate firm on the East Coast, I tap into a vast network of over 55 offices, affiliates, corporate partnerships, and supplier relationships. Through our affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World, we connect with over 600 member brokerage firms. This extends your property’s reach to over 4,100 offices and 130,000 agents across 65 countries, providing unparalleled global market exposure.

Strategic Market Positioning

To optimize your property’s appeal, I analyze comprehensive data, including sales history, local market trends, and supply-demand dynamics, factoring in your home’s unique attributes. This analysis, combined with valuation models, informs our pricing strategy for an optimal selling price.

Comprehensive Marketing Materials

I create high-quality marketing materials, including professional photography, floor plans, and compelling property narratives. These materials feature prominently in brochures distributed across networks, print advertising in local, national, and global channels, “Just Listed” postcards for targeted mailing, and prominent in-office displays.

Online and Electronic Marketing

My digital approach encompasses multiple listing services (MLS), broad website marketing across various platforms, strategic email campaigns to agents and prospects, custom property websites, and social media campaigns across LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. These efforts maximize online exposure to potential buyers.

Utilizing Technology-Based Marketing Tool

Depending on your property’s unique attributes, I employ advanced technology tools such as property videos, aerial photography, virtual staging, 3D walk-throughs, and more to enhance its online presence and appeal.

Open Houses, Appointments and Networking

I offer guidance on staging your home and can connect you with trusted service providers. I host Broker Open Houses and Public Open Houses to reach a broad audience of potential buyers. I also coordinate appointments and follow up with interested parties promptly.

Effective Communication and Deal Management

Communication is paramount. I provide weekly updates on open house activity and market feedback. I assist in evaluating offers, negotiate on your behalf, and maintain clear communication with all parties involved, ensuring a smooth transaction from acceptance to closing.

Mission and Dedication

My mission is to offer a comprehensive real estate service while ensuring direct client interaction and management. I work alongside a dedicated team of experienced professionals, utilizing my resources, experience, knowledge, and expertise to help you achieve a successful and seamless home sale in the vibrant Brooklyn real estate market.

Rest assured, when you entrust your home sale to me as your Listing Agent, you’re tapping into a wealth of expertise and a commitment to delivering outstanding results.
