Our Million Dollar Sales in 2023!
With the start of 2024, we wanted to shed light on our sales of 2023 and showcase how our agents are always able to work diligently to sell homes no matter what obstacles come their way. We first want to thank our amazing clients who without them none of this would be possible, but maybe more importantly we wanted to thank each and every single one of our agents who represented their clients with the utmost amount of professionalism and integrity, all while upholding the values of what it means to be a Tom Crimmins Realty Agent. We are so proud of all of our agents, and we wish them nothing but continued success moving forward! Thank You for fully embodying the characteristics of the Tom Crimmins Realty Family.
In the year of 2023, we had over 230 real estate transactions, representing both buyers & sellers, and making us one of Staten Island’s Top Real Estate Agencies. This article has been created to showcase the many listings throughout the year that exceeded the Million Dollar threshold, and the agents who made that all possible through their hard work and dedication to their clients.
2 Hilltop Road: $1,525,000, 85 Perry Avenue: $1,300,000, 548 Klondike Avenue: $995,000
Ross Buxbaum without a doubt continued his reputable success in 2023! He has created a portfolio of work that has allowed him to become one of our top-selling agents, and one of the top selling agents across all of Staten Island. His reputation has surely preceded him, as he has become very well known throughout Staten Island for his top sales and his success with getting homes on the market and sold very quickly. Ross is very loyal to his clients and will always make sure they get the best deals possible to make sure all parties are happy. Ross is a man of his word and will deliver in ways you wouldn’t expect an agent to be there! Although this was a transitional year in real estate, as a result of interest rate changes, Ross was able to maintain his success of being one of our top selling agents by selling a numerous amount of homes, and also sellings 3 homes that were valued near, or well over, the million dollar mark. The first and most highly valued sale for Ross was 2 Hilltop Road which sold for $1,525,000. A large two-family home sitting on a large lot in the beautiful Eltingville. This home included a beautiful open concept consisting of 6,000 square feet. It had an outstanding 8 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms that truly accentuated the beauty of this property. It certainly was the total package, as far as Staten Island Homes go, and it was sold for a wonderful price! Ross was not only able to sell one home for over a million dollars, but he sold another home at 85 Perry Avenue in Castleton Corners for $1,300,000, as well as another home which fell just under the million dollar mark for $995,000 located at 548 Klondike Avenue in New Springville! Ross had brought in the wonderful buyers for this two family detached home that has it all! It was a roller coaster year for the real estate industry, but Ross was able to navigate the ups and downs like a true professional, never wavering, and always being there for his clients to provide advice and expertise!
42 Bowdoin Street: $995,000
Winnie (Wan) Qing represented a fantastic buyer for 42 Bowdoin Street, which speaks very highly of Winnie’s diverse skill-set in being able to manage buyers and sellers at the same time at an extremely exceptional level! No matter the property, no matter the extent of the sale, or the value of the home…Winnie is always there for her clients. She has quite an abundant network of buyers making it easy for her to match clients with future homes! When you combine that with the many years of experience that she has and all the knowledge she has to offer then you get a recipe for real estate success with Winnie at the helm. She is the queen of closings and we value her so much at Tom Crimmins Realty. The way Winnie carries herself in Business speaks for itself through her real estate transactions. 42 Bowdoin Street is a large and renovated Two-Family Detached Home located in New Springville! It was a fully upgraded home with large bedrooms, newly upgraded bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen with new countertops, cabinets, new stainless steel sink and EVEN an extra-large private apartment.

Back on our list for the second year in a row is the dynamic team of John & Susan Lauria and Laura Mooney! The Lauria/Mooney Team have combined their long-standing expertise in the field of real estate to provide their clients with the best possible experience. They are one of Tom Crimmins Realty’s most highly rated & highly reviewed group of agents. The individual experience one will witness as a client of theirs is all encompassing, and because of the nature of their team, they are always available to help their clients and provide them with nothing but the best service. In terms of client relations we would put the Lauria/Mooney Team up against any team on Staten Island because we believe they are THAT good! No matter the condition, no matter the market segment of commercial or residential, and certainly no matter the location…the Lauria/Mooney team will be there for you every step of the way.

149 Satterlee Street: $950,000
Coming up next on our Million Dollar Listings recap we have 149 Satterlee Street which was sold by the wonderful and dedicated agent, John Sbarbaro. John is an extremely knowledgeable agent who never backs away from a tough situation no matter how many other agents may have turned it away ! This listing did fall short of a Million dollars but the hard work and consistency shown by John to our company is priceless. John had brought in the buyers for 149 Satterlee Street, a beautiful move-in ready home found in Tottenville! This property boasted a large open floor plan, recently installed recessed lighting throughout, shiplap ceilings made of wood, a built-in Polk Audio speaker system, an updated and custom kitchen with quartz countertops, modern bathrooms with heated floors and towel warmers, floor-to-ceiling closets and glass sliding doors, a newly accented stone-wall fireplace in the fully finished basement, a two-car garage, and a large backyard with a built-in patio! If you couldn’t tell just by that list, John got his clients the best of the best and helped them find their dream home which is no surprise to us because that’s what John does, and has done since he first joined us at Tom Crimmins Realty. On top of helping these clients find a dream home, John took on the task of selling their home at the same time and got them an amazing price for it! As you can see, our agents love taking on both sides of the deal and making dreams come true for their clients.

This beautiful home was located in the much sought after neighborhood of Sunset Hill and was sitting on a 147x50 lot! Truly a rare find on Staten Island; this listing was a perfect opportunity for Anthony’s clients, and Anthony made sure to let them know that..

He doesn’t just work with his clients, he fully gets to know and understand their needs so when a house like this one pops up on the market in Staten Island…he can perfectly match it with them!

These clients got an amazing property for them to call home because they were fortunate enough to work with an amazing agent that we know and love. Daisy truly embodies everything a person could want in an agent. She takes the time to really speak with her clients and gain understanding that isn’t often found with today’s real estate agents.

With 4 oversized bedrooms, a new addition of hardwood floors, a 2 car driveway and even an in-ground swimming pool. This home was a perfect summer oasis that Steven had the pleasure to sell.

However, that’s not the only home that Steve was able to be a part of that was worthy of making this list! Believe it or not, he represented a buyer on ANOTHER 1 Million Dollar home that sold for $1,375,000 in the beautiful town of Rossville located at 279 McBaine Avenue.
