Halstead Property has become the first major Manhattan brokerage to open an office in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, its sixth outpost in Brooklyn, a company spokesperson told The Real Deal exclusively.

The firm is slated to open the 1,000-square-foot office, at 316 Stuyvesant Avenue and Halsey Street, in the next few months, the spokesperson said.

Trish Martin, the company’s executive director of sales in Brooklyn, will head up the new outpost.

The move by Halstead represents a further push by major Manhattan firms to establish presences in areas formerly considered the domains of mom-and-pop brokerages. Last year, Halstead acquired the assets of Aguayo Real Estate Group, a boutique, 14-agent Brooklyn brokerage and development firm, giving it an increased presence in Cobble Hill.

Halstead agents working from the Bed-Stuy office will include Ban Leow, Morgan Munsey and Donna Myrie, all of whom recently joined the firm. Other agents will be recruited to fill the space.

“As the first major firm to set down roots in this incredible community, we are excited about all of the opportunities that this office has to offer our clients and customers as well as agents who are interested in specializing in this amazing neighborhood.” Halstead’s CEO Diane Ramirez and President James Gricar said in a joint statement.

Halstead already has two offices in Park Slope as well as offices in Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill and Cobble Hill.
