The Varjan Group
Chris Varjan is the Director of Sales at Blackstone Properties and has lead the company’s shift into the
sales market. He joined the firm in 2009 as a rental broker in downtown Manhattan but that did not last
long. After a few months in the business he recognized the opportunity the firm was leaving on the
table not serving the Brooklyn sales market. In the beginning the goal was to sell as much of the new
construction inventory as possible while the development market was slow. As the inventory sold out
and development picked up Chris began selling small development sites and conversions with a strong
focus on the Williamsburg area. Since then he has become one of the leading brokers in Northern
Brooklyn. He has become a leader in Williamburg/Greenpoint sales in both the residential and
commercial markets. Having sold everything from one bedrooms to large income producers there is
nothing he and his team can’t handle.
Chris graduated from Monmouth University with degrees in both Real Estate Development and Finance.
The knowledge and skill set he acquired while in college has only be sharpened by his real world
experience. Upon graduation he managed/redeveloped over 100 properties from Maine to Florida and
ultimately developed a thorough understanding of what investors want. As a result; he is able to
operate as full service broker advising clients on everything from lending to building design and
everything in between. He has built a network of amazing talent within the industry which he is happy
to share with his customers.
Chris has been a Premier Agent with Zillow for many neighborhoods throughout the city since 2010
which has helped him build a tremendous client base. With over 1,000 registered buyers in
Williamsburg alone, he has buyers lined up for just about any new deals that come in. This has resulted
in about 2/3 of his transactions over the last 5 years being executed off market. In many cases if he has
a realistic buyer with a specific set of criteria he and his team will set out to find a property off market
making for a painless transaction for all involved.
Chris grew up just outside the city in Oradell, NJ and spent most of his summers at his family’s beach
house in Lavallette. If you don’t find him in the office he is likely on a boat somewhere fishing or surfing.
He spends his free time traveling the world, mostly in search of fish and has won several major
tournaments. His passion for fishing is rivaled only by his love of cars which was has been in his blood
since birth. He grew up hanging out in his father’s shop and over the years the two of them have
built/restored several cars from the ground up.
