Austin Black II Opens Doors To City Living Detroit Real Estate Brokerage

by The Michigan Chronicle

A new full-service real estate brokerage founded by Realtor® Austin Black II named City Living Detroit officially opened for business in Detroit’s thriving Midtown neighborhood today.  


“I am excited and proud to open my own brokerage in Detroit,” said Black. “My passion for this city runs deep. Since returning home after college, I’ve made it a top priority to be involved in the continued growth of Detroit.  I believe that by opening my real estate brokerage here I will be able to make a greater impact on our community, one new resident at a time.”


City Living Detroit is a full-service brokerage that focuses in the sales, leasing and project marketing of lofts, condos and historic homes.  Agents for City Living Detroit provide their services in communities all across the Southeast Michigan region.


Black says City Living Detroit has already landed agreements to manage or be involved with the sales and marketing of several Detroit developments, including The Mack @ Brush Park, Willys Overland Lofts, Brush Park Village North, and Centurion Place.


Black has been in real estate for nearly a decade and has achieved success at all levels.  He has won several local and national awards, including being recognized this year by Realtor® magazine as one of the 30 up-and-coming realtors under 30 in the nation.


He credits a philosophy he created several years ago called P.I.E for his successes, and says it helped him reach $1.8 million in volume sales last year while working on behalf of another brokerage, so he intends to implement it as common practice at City Living Detroit.


“It’s an approach that is simple but effective,” said Black.  “We showcase the passion-points of a community and all it can offer and then by utilizing the latest technological innovations in the real estate industry we are able to educate clients about the best options that are available to them.”


City Living Detroit’s offices are located at 444 W. Willis, Ste. 108, inside Willys Overland Lofts.
