Tech startup Nooklyn is opening its first storefront in Manhattan.
The upstart firm has become one of the biggest agencies in Brooklyn since launching in 2015.
Offering a platform with listings, rental applications, background checks, rent payment and room-mate assistance, Nooklyn sees 49,000 searches every month, according to the firm.
Its first storefront in Manhattan will open on May 1 at 101 Stanton Street, joining many other Brooklyn businesses that have crossed the bridge into Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
“We’re incredibly excited to bring our end-to-end digital leasing platform and brokerage services to Manhattan,” said Moiz K. Malik, Nooklyn’s chief financial officer.
“The Lower East Side is a perfect match for Nooklyn’s first Manhattan storefront. The coffee, culture and art of the neighborhood make us feel right at home.”
Nooklyn says it will add 375 new real estate agents to the 300 already on the roster this year
The company said it has also signed several exclusive new developments with hundreds of units coming to market across Manhattan.
Currently, the fourth largest brokerage by agent head count in Brooklyn, and number one rentals-focused brokerage, Nooklyn renters last year performed 1.4 million searches.
