About Us

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.

For sellers and landlords, our expertise in the brownstone Brooklyn real estate market will help ensure that you get the best possible price and/or rent for your property. We have the experience and knowledge to help you determine your optimal asking price and provide you with all the necessary facts you need to make a confident and informed decision. We will highlight your home’s best features with our marketing tools, such as professional photos, floor plans, flyers and more. We will advertise it and market it on multiple websites to obtain optimal exposure and make sure the right people see your home. We will coordinate private showings and host open houses and work hard to find buyers and/or renters who will be well qualified candidates to buy or rent your home.

For buyers and renters, through customized professional guidance, we will help you find your dream home, assist you with the buying and/or renting process and negotiate the best deals. We will connect you with well-experienced mortgage brokers, attorneys and house inspectors from our referral list.

What Clients Are Saying


  • “Bouchra Lattef provided Exemplary client relationship Service from the first time we met her and until we got to the end of the journey. She is Gifted in her field. Not only was she able to completely take my family to the Finish line in Selling our home for the most Absolutely top premieum price. Bouchra was there at all the times to answer all and every inquiry and concerns. She is caring, patience and very understanding. I highly, highly recommend her for any of your needs whether buying or selling a house or any property . She became part of the family. My Gratitude and Thankfulness goes way beyond measures.”

    – Judith Ambrose

  • “Bouchra was recommended to me by a friend. Five stars all the way. I owned a 475sf co-op in Bay Ridge and finally decided to sell it since my tenant moved out. I no longer lived in the unit. After my very first telephone call, I trusted her. I signed the contract with no hesitation. Unbeknownst to me, the co-op board was difficult to contact. In addition, the management company was difficult to work with. This prolonged the sale and made it difficult. I was about to get an attorney involved, but Bouchra was very professional and hard-working and personally went to get information from the management company and talk with other owners in the building to get information. Mind you, I live on the west coast now so you could see my frustration. She had professional photos taken of my unit and held an open house. There were offers on the table immediately. Bouchra always kept in close contact me.

    This review is long overdue, but if it were not for her, I would not have sold my unit. She is the only reason it sold. It was a clean unit with very little issues if any at all, but the management company was ridiculous. She was very honest to both me and the buyers. It is very hard to find an ethical real estate agent. She wanted to sell my place and satisfy a young couple. I did not want her to hide any information from anyone and she felt the same way. I have dealt with other agents before and quite frankly, they were all horrible. She is the only one I would ever recommend and I truly mean that.

    In summary, I am extremely glad I worked with her and when I saw the closure statement, it was the only time I felt a real estate agent earned the commission. She is literally awesome.”

    – Ho Dzungh

  • “I closed a deal with Bouchra, she is the most amazing and honest agent i have ever met. She was always fast to respond and just great to work with! Will definitely be dealing with her on the next purchase/sale.”

    – Moshe Golberg

  • “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.”

    – Shira Eisenberg

  • “Valerie is fantastic. I met her years ago when a friend was looking for an apartment in Clinton Hill. We were struck then by her friendly, easy, low key vibe, her no-nonsense professionalism and her unparalleled knowledge and love of Brooklyn and the neighborhoods where she works. Now, almost a decade later, I came across her again as my partner and I have been interested in both renting and buying in Brooklyn. Valerie helped us find and negotiate the perfect Clinton Hill home. She was direct and to the point, never raising our expectations too much, especially in such an energetic market. But she also helped us plan how to negotiate some of our essential line items with the owner. Valerie is a true advocate without over promising. She’s also a lovely person. Thank you for everything, Valerie!”

    – Caitlin McNally

  • “Valerie was super sweet and helpful in showing us apartments! She was kind, knowledgable, and very responsive and communicative throughout the process. Highly recommended!”
