A Manhattan-based boutique real estate firm is opening an office on Vernon Blvd.
Space Market Shop, which specializes in high-end residential properties, has signed a lease to open at 47-34 Vernon Blvd., next door to Snob Nail Spa.
The firm, which has about 25 agents, is expected to open its Vernon Blvd office on September 15. There will be about six agents on site.
Edward Cho, the owner of Space Market Shop, is a Long Island City resident who has been heavily involved in selling and renting real estate in the neighborhood since 2008.
“I have closed about 100 deals [in Long Island City]—between sales and rentals—since 2008,” Cho said, referring to his own activity.
Cho was featured on the TV show “Million Dollar Listing” in 2012, where he put together a $4.75 million deal.
Cho said it is important to have an office in Long Island City in order to meet clients and build a brand.
Space Market Shop will join Nestseekers, Douglas Elliman and Modern Spaces on Vernon Boulevard, with Dream Property located just steps away from Vernon Blvd on 48th Avenue.
