A couple weeks ago, we reported that a real estate office opened on Washington Ave. between Lincoln Rd. and Lefferts Ave. We've glanced in his windows and noticed that most of his listings aren't really in the PLG area - they're often in East Flatbush and such.
Not that we don't appreciate the new guy's tiny office, but we want to see the big guns open up in PLG. Almost every time there's a big listing (sometimes a small listing) in PLG, it's offered by a larger, highly recognizable firm. In addition, we hypothesize that sooner or later, the big guys will want to expand into Crown Heights South and Wingate. Wouldn't PLG make a stellar location to grow from?
To enhance our case, Barbara Corcoran once said:
The best property leads I’ve ever chased have come from gay waiters or would-be actors serving my meal at a fancy restaurant. I’ve made a habit of asking, “So, where do you live?”
Come take a fresh look at PLG, Babs.
We would also like to see one of the big firms locate in PLG because we think it would contribute remarkably to our commercial landscape and accelarate the addition of amenities - nothing fancy, we're talking ATMs and some better stocked shops on Flatbush.
This post will probably touch a nerve for some - go forth and comment.
