THE WALL STREET JOURNAL
"ONY Founder Hank Orenstein is a “genius”for combining real estate services with the touring of neighborhoods."
EMBRACE THE HISTORY, RELISH THE PRESENT, LIVE FOR THE FUTURE
As a native New Yorker and a professional tour guide, I bring a fresh perspective to real estate: When you buy a home in New York, think not only of the interior space within a building. Embrace the reality that you are inheriting and investing in the history, architecture and culture of a neighborhood.

"We loved the fact that Hank is so passionate and knowledgeable not only about his job but also the history of distinct New York neighborhoods. We had both moved to New York from different continents. Hank introduced us to new neighborhoods and hidden gems that were not on our radar back then. We now live in our dream home in one of NY's most revered historic districts and couldn’t be happier."

"We decided to tap Hank Orenstein as a real estate broker when we decided finally to sell our precious Gramercy apartment, where I had been living for 30 years - the last eight with my husband. Within short order Hank took us on an extensive and enjoyable tour of the new neighborhood we had in mind-- Hamilton Heights in Harlem-- and discussed with us the merits of the neighborhood and what we would need to do to find the best bang of the buck here. We sold high and bought low under Hank's skillful direction."
