"In real estate, every property, seller and buyer are unique and should be addressed as such. I am happy to use my experience to better inform their own, and treat each transaction as it should be treated – with fresh eyes, an open mind and attentive personalized service."

With a broad range of experience across all types of residential and commercial transactions, Kristen Jock is a rarity among real estate agents in her ability to negotiate nearly any kind of deal. With an emphasis on multifamily sales in Brooklyn, she’s spent nearly a decade advising buyers and sellers alike, in addition to investors, developers, and landlords.
Certified as a buyer representative and trained in negotiation, she has already earned several of the industry’s top honors, including being named one of the top 1000 brokers nationwide by NRT and Rising Star at her previous firm. Clients tend to compliment her strong intuition—owing partly to her background in psychology—persistence, and calm, empathetic demeanor, especially during what tends to be one of the most stressful moments of their lives. She sees her role as that of a trusted advisor, and prides herself on being straightforward, levelheaded, and honest, believing a paycheck should never come at the expense of a client’s interests.
In her career, Kristen has serviced almost every neighborhood in Brooklyn, as well as several parts of Queens and Manhattan on both the listing and the buying side. She is also well connected to dozens of other agents and specialists, and quick to recommend someone if the particulars of a deal fall outside of her areas of expertise.
A property owner herself, she currently lives in the Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, where she is developing a two-family townhouse. Her first-hand experiences with home ownership have given her a unique perspective on how to spot potential problems, and ensure that her clients always get the best value possible. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, running, and traveling, and volunteers with several charities such as New York Cares and Achilles, which supports athletes with disabilities who compete in marathons.

Nestled in the highly sought after Boerum Hill Historic District in downtown Brooklyn, this landmark designated, legal, two family, Italianate brownstone rowhouse is situated on the charming block of Dean between Smith and Hoyt. Originally constructed between 1849-1855 for local merchants and business people as one in a group of six residences by the architect and developer of record, John A. Hughes. The property is bursting with original details from the inside out, with a black, wood cornice, aTudor-arched doorway evoking the Gothic Revival style, iron grilles, fence and stoop railing, pocket doors, built ins, crown molding, ceiling pendants and multiple working, wood burning fireplaces, to name a few.
To date, the property is arranged as three apartments with a three bedroom duplex over the parlor level, one bedroom above a one bedroom garden apartment with an unfinished basement. The garden and parlor apartments maintain access to the tranquil backyard, which is blanketed in green vegetation with a stone path leading to a bench to rest on while you pass a lazy afternoon under the shade of the magnolia and flowering crab trees.
The home maintains rich, historic details and good bones, which are awaiting a new owner to craft and curate the interiors to their liking. All mechanicals are in good, working condition and receive regular maintenance. If this sounds like the future home of your dreams, we invite you to take a peek!
Boerum Hill is an easygoing, predominantly low-rise community surrounded by Cobble Hill, Downtown Brooklyn, Fort Greene and Gowanus. The residential heart of the neighborhood is its quaint, historic district, which encompasses parts of Pacific, Dean, Bergen and Wyckoff Streets. Interspersed throughout are charming ground-floor businesses like the atmospheric Italian restaurant Rucola and the aptly named Little Sweet Cafe.

Finally, the neighborhood is very well connected with transportation options galore, including F, G, A and C metro stations, East River Ferry, Citi Bike hubs and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
