Gregory Healy, Licensed Real Estate Principal Broker Spotlight

February 24,2016 | By Greg Healy |

I’m a Native New Yorker

I was born in Brooklyn and raised in Washington Heights. I love New York City and have spent my life living and working here. I have 25 years of NYC rental experience, and am skilled in making apartment searches as painless as possible for my clients.

I attended Columbia and Baruch Universities, where I gained a B.S in Engineering and an M.B.A in Business respectively. I was on the Columbia swim team as a student, and swam competitively at the Master’s level until I was thirty.

To this day, I enjoy outdoor activities including swimming, biking and sailing. (I also enjoy pizza!)

My first job out of college was running a Marina on Long Island Sound, and I still enjoy getting out on the water whenever possible. Our city offers so many opportunities to get outside and enjoy all that life has to offer. I love living here!

I’ll Help You Find the Right Place to Call Home

I started in the property world by working for a Mortgage Broker, and then quickly moved to Real Estate in the early 1990s. After working for three Manhattan Real Estate Agencies, I had so many ideas for improving my clients’ apartment search that I decided to start my own Agency, Sovereign Associates, Inc., in 2001.  I found I have a gift for finding the right apartment and building good relationships between landlords and clients so that everyone is happy.

Since I still live in the Hudson Heights section of Washington Heights, (that's me beneath the George Washington Bridge), I decided to focus on the area of New York City that I know best:  Upper Manhattan. I love the part of town I live in, and regularly enjoy the amenities it has to offer – great restaurants, parks, shopping, and speedy transportation links to downtown and the Tristate Area. 

I Specialize in Apartment Rentals in Upper Manhattan including Columbia University

I’ve created long-standing relationships with Landlords, Building Managers and Supers; since I carefully maintain these relationships, I know what criteria are used when screening Applications.  I have a great track record for getting Clients approved; with Sovereign Associates managing your search you can move in to your new home with minimal hassle!

Maybe it’s my engineering background, but I love being at the leading edge with the latest in R.E. technology. Our company runs smoothly behind the scenes and we offer extensive videos and photos to help you preview apartments before you visit. We use the most up-to-date listing database management available for Realtors, showing what’s on the rental market today- not last week’s listings that have already gone. I’m a firm believer in the value of continuing education and you may run across me at seminars and business development events around the city.

Your New Neighborhood Is My Neighborhood, Too

My goal with Sovereign Associates is to create a special experience for each client, where you feel truly cared for. We strive to listen to your needs— asking: “What would make you happy in your new place? And what would make you unhappy?” By actively listening to your needs, we will speed you along in your search.

In the photos below, you'll see me visiting the UK, hosting my nephew and niece who were visiting NYC from Texas, surviving the 5 Boro Bike Tour with my wife, and the two of us enjoying a Manhattan experience on a rooftop bar with a spectacular view of our favorite city--New York!
