Real Estate Office Coming to 291 5th Avenue

A real estate office called RES is opening soon at 291 5th Avenue, in the space next to Beygl between First and Second Streets. It's an outpost of a Manhattan-based company that specializes in both retail and residential sales and rentals; current featured listings range from a $9 million apartment on Gramercy Park to a two-family house in Crown Heights for $649,000.

The 11-person company was formed in 2007; founders Dogan Baruh and Chris Sassano previously worked on Wall Street for the Private Client Group of Oppenheimer & Co.

At this point I think it's safe to say that we're all set with real estate offices here for the time being.

What used to be there? I've been watching the construction and it's driving me nuts. I just can't remember.

The storefront actually looks really nice. It used to be very run down looking and they've totally restored the front.

I think this was just a vacant storefront for years? Otherwise, did Song get smaller and they carved this out of their space?

I don't have a problem with this as there really aren't that many real estate offices in this immediate area and quite frankly, the area is pretty saturated with restaurants, bars and boutiques already.

It's great that more and more places are shunning those roll down grates. This place actually looks fantastic! For a real estate office...

Speaking of they just restored the storefront of the Halstead on the corner of Berkeley Place and 7th Avenue, new paint, new awnings. Looks good.

Also 92 7th Ave has been restored and the plywood fence came down. It's the spot where Chiles and Chocolate was.

as someone who was gentrified out of the apartments above, i can answer this question. it was a real estate office....it was used by the owner of the building & was where we picked up our mail.

Too many real estate offices in this neighborhood! Whatever happened to the days when people just rented and bought straight from the owner? Made things easier, cheaper, and we avoided the sharks and hacks clogging up the neighborhood opening up "real estate" offices. What a waste!

I've been living here for decades and there have always been a number of real estate offices. My guess is you are new around here, Eddard.
