Halstead Property Development Marketing (HPDM), a leading residential development marketing firm, announced today that it has rebranded. HPDM currently represents nearly $2 billion in real estate across Manhattan and Brooklyn.
A fresh, modern logo is the cornerstone of HPDM’s new visual identity, which will be used across all company marketing materials, including a redesigned website (http://www.hpdmny.com) featuring all of the development properties it represents that are currently on the market. The firm’s new tagline, ‘the craft of new development,’ captures its unique and holistic approach to the new development process.
“Over the past decade, HPDM has partnered with developers – many more than once – on more than 400 projects, representing billions of dollars in sales and over 10,000 new residential units brought to market,” said Stephen G. Kliegerman, president of HPDM. “We have grown tremendously and our new branding better reflects the team’s expertise in every stage of the development process. From the first spark of inspiration to the final closing, our highly specialized team members work side by side with developers through each phase of the process to craft some of the most exciting living environments in New York City.”
A leader in both Manhattan and Brooklyn, the HPDMteam launched marketing campaigns for 13 new developments in 2013 and will have brought nearly 40 projects to market by the end of 2014. Some of the firm’s current projects include: 388 Bridge in Downtown Brooklyn, 19 Park Place in Tribeca, 540 West 49th Street in Hell’s Kitchen, Oosten in Williamsburg, 21 West 20th Street in the Flatiron District, Harbor’s Edge in Sag Harbor, and The Adeline in Central Harlem.
Led by Kliegerman, HPDM’s record of success is attributed to its team’s multiple skill sets, cumulative years of experienced talent, and close collaboration with Halstead Property, an organization which has built its brand into one of the most visible and respected in the industry. Halstead Property operates 30 offices across three states in targeted, high-traffic neighborhoods that serve as a base for over 1,200 active resale and rental agents.
“Steve has been with our organization for more than 16 years and we are absolutely thrilled for this exciting announcement. Over the last 12 years, he has truly dedicated himself to running this division and done an outstanding job with his high level of professionalism and an incredible eye to details. We look forward to the continued growth that comes from Steve and his talented team,” stated Diane M. Ramirez, CEO of Halstead Property and James M. Gricar, President of Halstead Property.
The Halstead Property Development Marketing management team is comprised of Roberta Benzilio, executive vice president; William Ross, director of development marketing; Hunter Frick, director of development marketing; and Robin Schneiderman, director of new business development. Brendan Aguayo, managing director, is the most recent addition to the management team after Aguayo Realty Group joined the company last year. To accommodate its growing team, HPDM moved to a new office located at 445 Park Avenue last month.
Setting HPDM apart from its competitors is the company’s dedicated research team, led by Robin Schneiderman, Lisa Rae Castrigno and Matthew Petrallia, which monitors the latest economic, market and consumer trends – vital for carving out uniquely compelling offerings. Comprehensive market analysis extends throughout the entire development and sales cycle, helping developers optimize site conditions and pricing levels in order to most effectively tailor properties to targeted buyers.
HPDM is also known for partnering with the highest caliber architects, interior designers, creative agencies and public relations firms to position projects for success in the marketplace. By addressing the unique demands and market conditions for each project, the team ensures a higher return and reduced absorption period.

Halstead Property President Diane Ramirez shares her expert thoughts on Hurricane Sandy’s impact on real estate markets.

November 7, 2012
Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the storm and in our outer boroughs and our neighboring States that are still seeing and experiencing dire conditions – they all remain in our prayers.
I am starting to hear pockets of concern about the potential affect that “Sandy” might have on the New York City real estate market and specifically Downtown Manhattan as well as the local economy. In my opinion, New York City has once again shown its true grit! By and large, in the areas that we cover, we are getting back to normal very quickly. Downtown Manhattan was affected the hardest and not surprising since it was hit head on by the horrific hurricane—an occurrence that has not happened in more than 190 years.
But even this area is coming back to normal albeit a little bit slower than the rest of Manhattan which looks like nothing had occurred. Our economy should remain on its course and possibly even see a small boost from the rebuilding efforts. We are seeing some delays with our closings that involve bank financing because many banks are requiring a final inspection to be done before closing to confirm that the property did not sustain any damage from the storm. Other than that minor hiccup, our market remains very competitive with extremely low inventory and interest rates and a huge demand by the consumer to live in our unflappable NYC.
I will be sure to keep you informed with any other important news or updates.
