Gerard Splendore joins Warburg Realty with close to 20 years of varied Brooklyn and Manhattan real estate experience including positions as a landlord, co-op shareholder, board member, and townhouse owner. Gerard’s varied experience enables him to understand and finesse each transaction.
“Each new real estate deal presents challenges and opportunities to learn and grow. My greatest satisfaction is hurdling across the finish line of a difficult deal.”
Throughout Gerard’s career, he has worked in neighborhoods such as Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope and emerging areas like Bay Ridge/Fort Hamilton and the Riverdale section of the Bronx. He has challenged himself to wear many different hats, negotiating all types of real estate transactions, including single and multi-family homes, co-ops, and condos. Houses in estate condition are a specialty.
Gerard incorporates his eye for design throughout the process—he had a long career as a residential interior designer—and works closely with Warburg's Marketing team to ensure each client profits from a strategic marketing approach. Staging his listings for maximum appeal is a vital part of each of Gerard’s listings.
A skilled negotiator and active in both the industry and his community, Gerard’s certifications include Certified Negotiation Specialist (CNE), New York Real Estate Specialist (NYRS), The Real Estate Board of NY (REBNY) and American Society of Interior Designers (ASID).
A long term Brooklyn resident with his family, Gerard spends his time outside the office as a frequent volunteer at Housing Works, New York Cares and Shore Road Park Gardens.
