Dixon’s Lefferts brownstone buy sets record for nabe

Dixon Advisory, an Australian financial services firm, added a record-setting purchase to its recent shopping spree in the New York area.

The firm bought a single-family brownstone in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn, for $1.85 million — a record for a single-family home in the neighborhood, according to Fillmore Real Estate broker Louis Belisario. A limestone building in the neighborhood, at 52 Midwood Street, has held the record since 2007, when it changed hands for $1.67 million. A property at 111 Clarkson Avenue sold last year for $2.8 million, but isn’t considered a record in the same category because it was sold as a development site, Brownstoner reported.

Alan Dixon, who runs Dixon Advisory, picked up 71 properties in Bushwick in 2013, as previously reported. Over the past two years, he has purchased more than 538 homes, townhouses and brownstones in Jersey City, Queens and Brooklyn. [Brownstoner]Mark Maurer
