Executive Vice President, Managing Director of Sales, Brooklyn
Tricia Martin joined Brown Harris Stevens as Director of Sales of Brooklyn in the Summer of 2011 and was then promoted to Executive Vice President and Managing Director of Sales, Brooklyn. With more than 30 years of real estate and management experience, she is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the firm’s offices in Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Park Slope, South Slope, Bedford-Stuyvesant, and Bay Ridge. She also spearheads BHS’ strategic growth in the local area.
Tricia was previously a Vice President and Director with Brown Harris Stevens in both Brooklyn and Manhattan for more than seven years. She was one of the few inter-borough brokers in the industry, representing the growing numbers of residents migrating between Manhattan and Brooklyn. Her depth of knowledge of these vastly different markets ensured both the selling and buying side of the process were handled with the utmost professionalism. In conjunction with her extensive background in managing international projects for high-profile firms, Tricia brings a well-planned and thoughtful approach to the real estate arena.
Before joining BHS, she had her own firm focused on interior project management for commercial developments where she worked with clients such as Tiffany & Co., the Food Network, St. James Church, The Lycée Français de New York, and MoMA. Prior to that, she worked in the publishing industry focusing on architectural publications such as Traditional Building—a trade publication she helped found that targeted commercial architects and contractors—and The Old House Journal, a national magazine.
Tricia is an active supporter of REBNY, sitting on the Education and Brooklyn Committees, as well the REBNY New York Residential Specialist Executive Committee. She has moderated and served as a panelist on many of REBNY's Breakfast Club Series and the Residential Brooklyn Seminar at St. Francis College. Tricia also leads many classes for BHS’ series of educational classes for new and seasoned agents.
A resident of Park Slope for more than 25 years, Tricia is very active in the community. She founded The Partnership for Independent Means, a not-for-profit located in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn whose mission is to create balance, self-sufficiency, and financial stability in the lives of at-risk single mothers and their children. Tricia also sat on the Board of Directors for T.O.P.S. for You, Inc., a Bushwick-based not-for-profit focused on opportunities for low-income families to stabilize and improve their lives and the lives of others, with particular emphasis on personal self-sufficiency and leadership development. Both have been rolled into the Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council. In addition, she was a founding member of the New York City Cyclones Youth Hockey Program and Scholarship Fund, housed in Chelsea Piers. Tricia, along with John Wollberg and Sara Rotter, leads the philanthropic arm of Brown Harris Stevens.
