Hello and Thank You for Visiting Our Website


BLS Realty Inc., also known as Brownstone Life Styles was founded in 2008 by Bouchra Lattef whose Real Estate career began in 1999. With an international background, Paris France being her home town and Brooklyn NY her primary city of residence, she developed a passion for prewar properties and her boutique firm has naturally evolved to specialize in sales and rentals of prewar properties and homes in Brownstone Brooklyn.

Buying or selling properties that are more than 100 years old can be a daunting experience. But choosing the right broker with the knowledge and experience in sales of prewar town homes, to guide you and assist you, is the key to a smooth and successful real estate transaction for buyers and sellers. For instance, buyers as well as real estate agents accustomed to selling apartments in Manhattan, when inquiring about a prewar townhouse for sale, often find themselves confused and disappointed when learning that the property does not have a certificate of occupancy. But what they don’t know is that a lot of townhouses in Brooklyn and NY, built before 1938, don’t have a certificate of occupancy and that a certificate of occupancy is not required.

Since Founded, BLS realty Inc., has built a reputation of trust due to our dedicated attention and loyalty to our clients. As a small entrepreneurial boutique firm, we offer a personalized service to all of our clients and working with a high level of flexibility with no chain of command and bureaucracy makes it easy to serve each and every client individually and get the deal done.

What Others Are Saying

  • “I am an attorney who has worked with Bouchra Lattef personally on a number of real estate matters. She has assisted me in the sale and rental of property in Brooklyn. On each occasion, she acted promptly and professionally in staging and showcasing the properties. She was assertive, flexible and courteous while doing whatever was necessary to close the deals.  As a result of her efforts, I had the choice of several lessees and qualified buyers, who made top offers. I trust her judgment and would not hesitate to use her services in the future or to recommend her highly.”

    – Yasmin Daley Duncan, Esq.

  • “From the first time we met, you exhibited professionalism and knowledge about New York’s real estate market. With your guidance, I was able to sell the property in a short period of time, and received a price far beyond my initial expectations.  In addition, I believe you went above and beyond to ensure the property was shown well, even with the hurdles presented by the tenant. I am very thankful for all your help with the showings and even bringing in help to broom-clean the house prior to the closing.  I fully endorse BLS Realty Inc. and you for the sale of my house and have no reservations in recommending you to family, friends and acquaintances. “

    – Janine da Silva

  • “Ms. Lattef is the consummate professional and was our Real Estate Agent while we lived in Brooklyn, NY. She was always able to find lessees for our rental units who were of excellent character due to the exhaustive screening she did before even presenting them to us for approval.  When we decided to sell our house in Bedford/Stuyvesant earlier this year, we immediately contacted Ms. Lattef, who, as was expected, gave us the best advice as to the timing of placing the house on the market. She attended to all the necessary details to ensure the house showed to its best advantage, and thus she was able to obtain a purchase after only one showing. She then held our hands and walked us through all that was entailed with the sale of a house in New York. Ms. Lattef has gone beyond the call of duty and has been there to assist us on personal matters and always offers sage advice as to how to navigate whatever the situation. “

    – Claudette Lopez-Lewis 

  • “Bouchra was an amazing asset in the process of purchasing our new home.  She was always honest with us about risk vs. reward with each house that we saw.  After we gave up our house hunt for a few months, Bouchra called and said she had found our home.  It was a rocky road to get it but she held our hand through the entire process and when our mortgage broker dropped the ball and almost lost us the house Bouchra saved the day, getting us the time and finding us a wonderful broker.”
