Barak Dunayer joined Halstead Property after over 12 years in the real estate business in which he started out of his tiny Upper West Side studio apartment and built a successful agency called BARAK Realty into two Manhattan offices and over 40 sales associates. Over the last 7 years, Barak has faciliated over 400 transactions per year and nearly $500,000,000 in volume.
Barak’s commitment to customer service, knowledge, and integrity has created meaningful long-term relationships with clients who continue to generate repeat business and an endless stream of referrals. "They have become my friends, and they always appreciate the knowledge and experience I gladly share with them,” Barak says. “I cherish my growing number of sellers, buyers, property owners and renters who place their trust in my services for all their diverse real estate needs”
Barak was born and raised in Israel where he grew up pursuing his first life long goal of becoming a world-class trumpet player. As a young musician, Barak won numerous musical competitions, played principal trumpet in some of Israel’s prominent youth orchestras and appeared several times as a soloist with the Haifa Symphony and the Israeli Philharmonic. After graduating high school and serving in the Israeli Army (Lead Trumpet at the Israeli Army Band) he received a full scholarship to study at The Juilliard School and finally landed in New York.
