Victoria Shtainer is a veteran residential specialist. She is as creative as she is tenacious in hunting out the best properties for her clients. Along with her seasoned knowledge of the real estate market comes a thorough education of various neighborhoods for buyers who benefit from her expert, attentive guidance. Victoria's insight into the potential of properties begins way before they are actually built. Her in-depth experience with preconstruction enables her to visualize both space and possibilities in terms of aesthetics as well as value. Victoria's keen vision has helped homeowners and investors alike, not to mention herself and her husband who have developed commercial and residential projects - plus handled the litigations and sales for them - throughout Brooklyn. As one who classifies herself as a "real estate junkie," Victoria has thrived in and been thrilled by the business for nine rewarding years. She still enjoys the hunt, and finding that diamond in the rough. Her equal passion is spending time with her husband and two small children, her pride and joy. Fluent in Russian, Victoria came to the US when age six, and has since fueled her passion for studying and doing her homework on everything, especially cutting-edge trends in real estate.
