WHO WE ARE
Braddock + Purcell is founded and led by Paul Purcell and Kathy Braddock. Combined, Kathy and Paul have over 50 years of experience in residential real estate and are here to help you make the right real estate decisions. Paul and Kathy guide you from day-1 and long after around NYC and wherever else you need to be.
I am an entrepreneur in every sense of the word. I also love what I do and love who I get to work with and for. First, my business partner for over 25 years, Paul Purcell. He is the embodiment of a true “gentleman” and the ultimate professional. As well the unique process that Paul and I created with Braddock& Purcell. Every day I have the opportunity to help people figure out what they should do, where they should do it, with whom they should work and even if it is the right time for them to do anything. The fun and fulfillment comes when all the puzzle pieces come together. How fantastic to be able to advise and guide people at no extra cost to them.
Born and bred in NYC, Braddock is no stranger to success. After graduating from The Brearley School and Vassar College, she returned to NYC where she saw a need for a new business model. Braddock was a principal at the Intrepid New Yorker, which she founded in 1982. Braddock turned Intrepid New Yorker into New York City's premier destination services company, handling relocation and resettling-in services for individuals and Fortune 100 and 500 corporations. Her extensive understanding of the greater New York region culminated in her co-authoring two books about living in New York and navigating daily life in the area.
“I love what I do! I’m proud to create a team of professionals to help buyers and sellers experience the real estate process the way it SHOULD be, not the way it typically is. Kathy Braddock and I get to be our client’s trusted advisors, overseeing the process from start to finish, and beyond, providing authentic “white glove” service in an industry that doesn’t engender a lot of trust. We work with the best and brightest real estate agents, real estate attorneys, and mortgage and financial advisors to give our clients an experience they never thought possible. The teams of professionals we create make us proud to be in this profession. It’s a wonderful feeling to be this passionate about helping others with the most important financial and personal decisions of their lives.”
Paul has been a “New Yorker” for over 40 years and he loves all that NYC has to offer… especially its real estate. He has an unparalleled understanding of the coop and condo process, as well as an encyclopedic knowledge of buildings throughout the City and loves walking every block in Manhattan. Paul began his real estate career as a sales agent in 1985 and found his true calling after beginning his NYC career in marketing and advertising. Paul calls himself a real estate “junkie.” His fascination doesn’t stop with New York City, but takes him to the suburbs of the Tri-State... and, virtually every major metro area in the U.S.
