The Alvarezes teamed up with Oleg Bortman, an associate
broker and co-founder of The Brokery. The biggest challenge
during the couple’s homebuying process was finding a place
within their budget, said Bortman. This wasn’t the couple’s first
time working with Bortman. … Their real estate agent showed
them another, more updated unit, but since it also lacked the
square footage they wanted, they decided that the complex was
not the right fit.
