Brandon Babel Licensed Real Estate Salesperson




212-729-5712, Ext. 153


Born in New York City, Brandon inherited the characteristics of a multi-cultural environment. By learning to connect with a diverse group of individuals, Brandon has developed strong interpersonal skills that allow him to see value from anyone’s perspective. The simple concept of caring is the secret to Brandon’s ability to find his customers not just an apartment, condo or co-op but most importantly a HOME. When asked what he loves most about real estate, he said “ I work day and night for one moment. The moment I leave my client in their new home with the biggest smile on their face. Knowing that I was able to find a home for a client is what keeps me in the real estate business.”

Brandon began his real estate career with REIS Inc. as a research analyst, analyzing transactional sales and lead generation throughout the U.S. market. After 7 months of covering market trends and transactions, Brandon found his own niche in the market covering portfolio sales. Growing up as a tech-savvy individual, Brandon developed a database that would allow him to efficiently track and record financial and analytical details for each portfolio sale. From there, Brandon carved his path to a newly created position with REIS and was promoted to portfolio research analyst. Brandon became the youngest employee to be promoted three times in one year with REIS. After his experience with REIS Brandon quickly fell in love with real estate and developed his passion to work with clients on a one to one relationship, which lead to him joining the Elegran team.

When Brandon is not in the office he is with family and friends enjoying everything the world has to offer. He loves snowboarding during the season and enjoys water sports in the summer. Brandon is most passionate about keeping an open mind and learning more about the various cultures that surround him everyday. When asked what he does to achieve the highest level of success he said, “Putting myself in other individual's shoes really opens up my mind to so many unique perspectives on life which allows me to see my client’s true value from all angles. For me, this is the most fascinating part of the job."

Brandon was absolutely amazing in helping us find the perfect apartment! We were moving from Amsterdam to New York and it was not an easy move, particularly given that I had to start my new job right away. I spoke to Brandon from Amsterdam and I could immediately tell that he took the time to listen and understand our needs and we was 100% client-oriented. He was extremely flexible in setting up viewings for us and worked around our chaotic schedule, sacrificing his own personal time. He was super efficient in terms of viewing suggestions - we picked the second flat we saw out of three (from past experience I know that viewing too many flats can be confusing and frustrating!) He also accurately considered the timeline of when we should view flats vs. when we needed to move in. As we were expats moving to the US for the first time, Brandon ensured that the building we chose was flexible with the required documentation, making it a stress-free lease application. The whole process was extremely smooth and I would highly recommend Brandon to help you find your apartment! - Tara

With everything squared away with my new apartment, I just wanted to extend a sincere thanks to you for all you have done to make this move possible. From the very first email I sent you, through to move-in and beyond, your responsiveness and understanding has been so vital to my own personal sanity. Dealing with an impossible landlord was not fun for any of us, but you navigated the process beautifully on both sides, and somehow managed to help me stay calm and completely protected throughout. As a fellow agent (albeit in theater, not real estate), the way that you represented me in this process serves as a model for how I hope to represent my own clients. And please rest assured that when it comes time for me to rent or buy my next apartment, you will be my first call. Selfishly, I would kindly request that you not leave New York for that reason. Thank you again for everything. Hope to see you in the neighborhood soon! - Kevin L.

We are extremely grateful to Brandon for his dedication and tenacity in helping us find an apartment that we are very happy with. Brandon took the time upfront to understand our criteria and preferences, and proceeded to do a thorough research of all viable options and explained to us the pros and cons and nuances of all the options, and teach us all that we needed to understand on the NY rental market. We had just arrived from LA and had one week to visit places and decide. Brandon caved out of most of the week for us which we really appreciated given how busy he is. By the end of the week we were comfortable and excited with our decision. Very smooth and successful process, and we would highly recommend Brandon! - Andrew C.

Brandon is an awesomely efficient, considerate, and personable agent who will get things done for you. I sought out his help on short notice, with a fairly restrictive timeline, and he was able to land me a great apartment, as well as walk me through all the procedural steps we had to go through. Brandon has a knack for locating a space that matches your preferences, environment-wise and budget-wise. He's always available in case you need anything and has a great attitude. I highly recommend Brandon for anyone seeking a reliable and friendly agent! - Winston K.

I was organizing a move from Washington, DC to Manhattan and was panicking because I had not secured an apartment. From the moment that I called Brandon, he exemplified amazing customer service and professionalism. Within 2 weeks, he had found me the perfect brownstone in Harlem minutes away from the station for my commute. He also connected me with a move in company and made sure everything was perfect for the transition. I would refer his services to anyone looking for a home in Manhattan. I would hire him again in an instant. - Acacia S.

Brandon went above and beyond to help us secure the perfect apartment (in face of some pretty tough requirements). He was unequivocally professional throughout the whole process and attentive to every question and query, enabling a seamless search and contract execution. I will be sending a recommendation to my network of UWS moms (5000 members). - Gemma B.

I worked with Brandon for the past two weeks while I was looking for a one bedroom apartment in Manhattan. He was so sweet, easy to talk to, and was such a pleasure to work with! He was incredibly polite and professional throughout all of our communication and apartment visits. He was on time and followed up regularly with new listings and always listened to my feedback. I felt like Brandon really wanted to help me find the right place and never wasted my time showing me apartments that didn't fit my guidelines. I'd be happy to work with him again sometime! - Valgerdur N.

Working with Brandon made apartment searching fun and efficient! He took the time to really understand what I was looking for in an apartment instead of just bringing me all over to showings. He was knowledgeable about the options out there, the process, and was helpful in pointing out things I would not have noticed. I ended up taking Brandon's first suggestion, which goes to show how well he able to match clients and apartments, and he guided me through the entire leasing process. - Jennifer K.
