Meet Raphael

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker
Raphael De Niro has spent the last 19 years of his life establishing himself as a respected figure in the New York City luxury real estate industry. As a full-time Manhattan resident for over 30 years, De Niro takes great pride in his city and his profession. De Niro has an unwavering commitment to providing the highest level of privacy and discretion to clients, earning him a reputation for exceptional trustworthiness, loyalty, and vast knowledge of today's unique marketplace.
Beyond being a talented and hard-working individual, De Niro's success stems from his ability to transcend the traditional role of a real estate broker. He understands that buying and selling a home are not merely financial transactions but deeply personal and emotional experiences for his clients. Leveraging his seasoned personal and professional judgment, he offers invaluable support throughout the decision-making process, ensuring a seamless and positive transaction.
The De Niro Team was founded in 2004 after Raphael recruited like-minded professionals who embody the same commitment to integrity, honesty, and unparalleled client support. Their approach treats every client as a cherished family member, always prioritizing their best interests. Additionally, De Niro's dedication to excellence led him to become one of the Founding Board Members of the New York Residential Agent Continuum (NYRAC). Established in 2018, NYRAC aims to elevate the status of the residential brokerage profession in New York City by fostering innovation, transparency, ethics, advocacy, and best practices, while promoting education, collegiality, and professional networking to enhance the consumer experience.
In addition to their successful resale business, Raphael and his team of highly skilled real estate professionals have become a leading force in new development sales including early-stage consulting regarding floor plans, finishes, amenities, and pricing. The team has overseen the marketing and sales for The Pearline Soap Factory, 76 Madison, the TriBeCa Fairchild, 150 Charles Street, and 27 Wooster, achieving sold-out status for each. Raphael is currently a brand ambassador for two buildings that have nearly sold out: 111 Murray Street and 108 Leonard Street.
The De Niro name has been synonymous with real estate for three generations, with a rich history that includes pioneering SoHo's first warehouse-to-residential conversions in the 1960s and 1970s. Drawing from this legacy, De Niro has developed his formidable expertise through involvement in various Manhattan and U.S. hotel projects, establishing a solid foundation for his future endeavors in real estate development.
As a partner at The Greenwich Hotel, a renowned five-star boutique hotel in TriBeCa, De Niro played a pivotal role in its successful launch in the spring of 2008. He was involved in every aspect, from design and construction to planning and daily operations. Building on this accomplishment, De Niro and his development partners are now exploring opportunities to expand The Greenwich Hotel and the Nobu Hotel and Residences brand to other locations, with Miami being their next target.
Since 2004, The De Niro Team has consistently ranked as a top sales team at Douglas Elliman, boasting an impressive record of accomplishments that continues to be revered and emulated by others in the real estate industry. With Raphael De Niro's unparalleled expertise, unwavering dedication to his clients, and proven track record of success, he remains the go-to luxury real estate broker for high-profile clients seeking the finest properties in New York City.
