As an experienced real estate broker, commercial property manager and founder of a non-profit organization, Tywan Anthony uses his keen knowledge of the area and the real estate industry to serve his clients in his hometown of Bedford Stuyvesant Brooklyn, NY and beyond. Born and raised in Bed-Stuy, Tywan is deeply involved both professionally and personally with his community.
Tywan has worked in real estate for the past seven years. As a New York licensed associate real estate broker with Compass, Tywan works with both residential and commercial clients throughout Brooklyn and the Greater New York City area. Serving the needs of his clients, Tywan has assisted them in selling, buying, investing, and renting highly sought-after Brownstones, condos and coops in the most desired areas. In addition to brokerage work, Tywan has personally invested in single family homes in value-add markets in the Midwest, with his preference being states such as Kansas and Missouri. Ty is also dedicated to the revitalization and ongoing economic development of communities and neighborhoods that he is active in. He is a longstanding member of Community Board 3, covering Bedford Stuyvesant, where he is currently the chairman of economic development, overseeing small business development and growth throughout the area.
Tywan is also currently a commercial property manager for Retail Properties of America (RPAI), a company that owns and operates retail, office, and shopping centers throughout the United States. He currently manages ten properties located throughout the Northeast which include large national retail tenants like Lowes, Home Depot, and Best Buy.
Coupling community work with real estate, Ty serves as an adjunct professor in the Real Estate Departments of Baruch and Medgar Evers College, where he teaches various real estate courses to undergrad, graduate, and continuing education students.
Five years ago, he merged his love of football and community with a philanthropic cause and founded a nonprofit called the New York Crusaders, an organization that encourages fitness and health through the sport of football in under-served communities throughout New York City. The Crusaders have hosted many community events for the youth of New York City including physical fitness back to school events, local combines for high school kids, and have partnered with high schools, elementary schools, and colleges to bring a unique fitness experience to communities in need. Through its adult football program, the organization successfully sends underserved and overlooked athletes to various colleges throughout the United States every year, who otherwise would not receive such opportunities. Tywan loves his work with the Crusaders because the organization literally saves lives in areas that need it the most.
Tywan holds various real estate related certifications and designations and is a member of the Institute for Real Estate Management (IREM). He graduated from Pittsburg State University, where he was a member of the football program playing outside linebacker. After college, Tywan enjoyed a short professional football career playing on arena teams and other professional organizations.
