Revived Residential Launches as Team Nears $500M in Transactions

The Equity Platforms community extends heartfelt congratulations to Joe Cruz on the inauguration of his innovative venture, Revived Residential, co-founded with esteemed colleague Lou Belisario. This boutique real estate firm, based in Brooklyn and serving Queens and Manhattan, is a testament to Joe’s vision of blending luxury real estate services with a personal approach, enhanced by the latest technological advancements. Revived Residential is committed to providing unparalleled quality experiences to its clients, reflecting Joe’s dedication to excellence.

Since its establishment in 2020, the Belisario Cruz Team, under Joe’s co-leadership, has achieved remarkable success, orchestrating over 1,000 transactions with a total volume nearing $500 million. The team’s growth from five to 25 agents has not only led them to become Brooklyn’s top mega team but also the second in all of New York City, showcasing their significant impact on the real estate landscape.

Joe Cruz’s journey in real estate is nothing short of inspirational. From acquiring his real estate license on his 18th birthday to founding Urban Realty at the age of 21, Joe has demonstrated an exceptional knack for leadership and innovation. His tenure at Urban Realty, where he managed a dynamic team of 50 agents across two offices, laid the groundwork for his subsequent achievements, including over 5,000 successful rental transactions.

Furthermore, Joe’s entrepreneurial spirit extends beyond real estate brokerage. His roles as a licensed contractor and partner in My Beautiful Home Designs, alongside his co-ownership of B2C Development with Belisario, highlight his versatile contributions to the industry. The introduction of Revived Residential’s New Development and Commercial divisions promises to broaden the scope of services available to their clientele, signaling a new era of comprehensive real estate solutions.

The strategic partnership with Side equips Revived Residential with cutting-edge technological support, ensuring a blend of high-tech and boutique experiences for clients. Joe’s ambition for Revived Residential is clear: to foster a brand that revitalizes New York City’s real estate market through innovation, personalized service, and unwavering quality.

The emergence of Revived Residential marks a pivotal moment in the evolution of boutique real estate firms in New York, reflecting the broader trend towards personalized, technology-driven services. As Joe and his team embark on this exciting journey, the Equity Platforms community is proud to recognize their accomplishments and supports them in their mission to redefine the real estate experience in New York City.
