Hal Blake, broker/owner of Richmond Realty Advisors, has always had a desire to help people. A 25 year Staten Island resident, he retired from the NYPD as a decorated detective in 1996, and shortly thereafter began a career in real estate. Over the years, he gained valuable experience working first as an agent and then as an associate broker for some of the biggest names in the business . Hal used that experience to branch out on his own and start his own real estate company, Richmond Realty Advisors. With an emphasis on quality, Hal has continued to build on his real estate success by going above & beyond for each and every client who chooses to work with him.
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how Hal works.
In his experience as a Staten Island real estate professional, he has also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting clients first. This means remaining accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This “client first” philosophy has always been Hal’s approach and it requires him to continually improve his skills and ways of doing business. In addition, he has found that the latest technologies are enabling him to do everything he has always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. These tools helps him to extend the range of services he provides to my clients.
Hal Blake is a Graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI). The GRI is the most prestigious certification program within the real estate industry and is only held by 15% of all nationally licensed agents. Hal also holds the E-Pro Designation, specific to internet marketing and technology.
As a top million dollar producer year after year, Hal & the team at Richmond Realty Advisors focuses on client needs by providing the highest level of service and support.

“Hal is extremely knowledgeable of the Real Estate business and in my humble opinion, one of the best brokers around. He guided us through the entire home buying process; from locating potential opportunities, being very candid about the right home choice for my family as well as seeing it right to the finish at the closing table. I recommend him with the highest regard to all family & friends and look forward to working with him again in the future.“ -Craig R.Click Here To Contact Me
