Nathan Horne

Nathan Horne The Corcoran Group

Experience: Three years Specializations: Residential sales, commercial investments Areas Served: All NYC boroughs Q: What made you become interested in real estate? A: I think that it's important that people use their money wisely for investment purposes and that a home can make someone more content. Q: What is the most interesting thing that happened during an open house you hosted? A:   Full ask offer where they wanted me to cancel the rest of the open house and accept. Q: What was your favorite moment in your career so far? A: 've had a lot of favorite moments. It makes me happy to market and sell something that no one else succeeded in. Not the ideal situation but it's meant more to my clients when that's the case. Q: What do you wish you had known when you first got your real estate license? A:  I wish I knew more about tax law and 1031 exchanges. I know about it now but it would have also been useful early on. Q: In what ways have you seen the real estate industry change since you started? A:  The real estate market is dynamic and changes every day. Currently, there is effectively a war going on between the big brokerages and Streeteasy, as well as a political war dealing with 421A tax abatements and the construction industry. Both are new and different but you learn to concentrate on the important things that don't change. Q: What’s the most challenging part of your job? A: Constant contact. I have clients that call at 7am and clients that call at midnight. I like it because I like people but it is a challenging part of the job to always be available. You get used to it, however, and I think it separates you from people who don't have that drive. Q: If you could sum up being a real estate agent in five words or less, what would you say? A: Integrity, responsiveness, knowledge, value-add.
