2022 was quite the year for StreetEasy Experts. The program, which first launched in late 2019, matches real estate agents with NYC buyers and sellers interested in a neighborhood, building, or type of property in which the agent has specialized expertise. Since launching, Experts has helped thousands of agents expand their reach, with many building 8-figure businesses through the program alone.

This year, Experts closed over $2B in deals and completed thousands of transactions. The largest Experts deal in 2022, at 15 Central Park West in Lincoln Square, had a closing price of $21.5M.

To mark the end of another great year for Experts, we’re recognizing the top-performing StreetEasy Experts of 2022: the top 10 in total sales volume, and the top 10 in total transactions. Also included are a few Experts recognized by their Business Advisor for their extraordinary contributions over the year. These agents embody what it means to be an Expert not just in sheer numbers, but in serving their clients with the localized expertise and New York City know-how they’ve come to expect.

Cheers and congratulations to our top Experts!

    The Top-Performing Experts of 2022: Sales Volume

    1. Ryan Kaplan, Corcoran

    2022 total sales volume: $23,450,000

    “The introductions from StreetEasy aren’t usually people in your orbit. You can’t lean on a positive word and referral from a mutual friend or former client, the way other business sometimes comes in. These connections largely start out as strangers, therefore, the only true way to be successful in converting these leads is really knowing your craft.”

    2. Henry Hershkowitz, Compass

    2022 total sales volume: $21,500,000

    3. Daniel Blatman, The Agency

    2022 total sales volume: $18,010,000

    4. Erik Ternon, Douglas Elliman

    “I am grateful for the opportunities StreetEasy has given me to connect with motivated and qualified buyers – all great people with whom I may not have otherwise gotten in front of. They have given me a platform to leverage my experience and expertise in the service of buyers navigating a challenging market full of uncertainty.”

    6. Leora Blumberg Rubinstein, Douglas Elliman

    2022 total sales volume: $13,704,610

    7. Sarah Silva, Compass

    2022 total sales volume: $13,704,610

    “There is only so much business you can get from your contact list and referred to you by other brokers. StreetEasy has given me the ability to tap into circles of business I wouldn’t have had access to prior. For example, I am now on the Google preferred vendors list because StreetEasy connected me with a Google client.

    “It’s an honor to partner with the best in the industry who have the rare like-minded mission to serve the consumers of NYC above anything else. When working in the fast-paced NYC real estate market, it is essential to partner with an organization that is dedicated to putting the needs of the customer first and above all things. A company with like-minded core values which places customer service at the center is rare.”

    2. Sam Teichman, Corcoran

    2022 total transactions: 19

    “The amount of teaching I do with first-time homebuyers forces me to understand every step of the process on a more detailed level than I otherwise would have, and answering each of their unique questions along the way makes me a better realtor for the next client, and the one after that. But mostly, it’s the chance to get to know each of their personal stories that excites me.”

    3. Leora Blumberg Rubinstein, Douglas Elliman

    2022 total transactions: 15

    4. Barrie Granito, Casa Blanca Real Estate

    2022 total transactions: 14

In addition, the level of support and encouragement that I’ve received from the entire StreetEasy team, with special mention to my business advisor Alex Schroeder, has been vital to my success.”
