Australian financial services firm Dixon Advisory’s purchase last week of a $2.3 million Bedford-Stuyvesant townhouse was one of a string of deals that set records in their respective Brooklyn neighborhoods, according to a published account.
The 16-foot-wide Bed-Stuy property at 22 Arlington Place had received a high-end renovation. Dixon also bought a house at 196 Hancock Street for $2.1 million from a seller who had listed it three days after paying $1.2 million for it. Earlier in the month, the firm bought a house at 698 St. Marks Avenue in Crown Heights for $1.5 million. These all set neighborhood records, according to Brownstoner.
The firm, which has a Jersey City, N.J., office, owns about 535 one- to four-family houses in the greater New York area. [Brownstoner] — Mark Maurer
