Peter Cossio

“We were selling a premium priced home in our area and Matt and Peter were an obvious choice given their precedent work. They have handled a large portion of the premium homes in our area and they know exactly how to market to that clientele, who those buyers are and how they can best be marketed to. Their vision, leadership and resources made staging the house and its preparation to go to market as easy as that can be done. They were highly involved in the photography of our home which turned out beautifully. Their marketing materials were first rate and reflective of their class and sensibility for aesthetics. We had an agreed offer within days of putting our home on the market at our asking price. The buyer was someone they knew well from their precedent experience. Getting the deal to a closing was trickier than everyone hoped because it turned out we had to remove an oil tank. In the meantime we moved to another state. Matt and Peter became the defacto overseers of our home and the tank removal process. We greatly appreciate their goodwill and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty. They could not have done a better job on our behalf and have our full recommendation to anyone considering their services.”

Joe and Natalie Rhodes

“Matt & Peter know the Hoboken brownstone market cold.  No one markets a property more effectively than the Brown/Cossio team.  They also contribute in selfless and meaningful ways to the Hoboken community, a testament to their character.”

Steve Fahmie

“Peter and Matt are hands down the best Brownstone realtors in Hoboken with the track record to prove it! Their experience and local knowledge are second to none and helped us sell our home in a smooth process with expert advice throughout! Peter and Matt’s professionalism sets the bar in Hoboken. We can’t recommend Peter and Matt enough…their results speak for themselves!”

Bill and Cherie Goodbody

“I was referred to Clare Cossio by my former colleague, who had hired Clare’s husband, Peter, to purchase his home in Hoboken.  Considering how critical my colleague was (at work), I could only imagine how thoroughly he must have vetted Hudson Realty Group before entrusting them.  I was excited to work with Clare because unlike my previous Realtor, she stuck to my wish-list, but also gave me a dose of reality-check when needed.  We must have looked at over a dozen places, and even made an offer on one before finally landing my current home.
As a first time home owner, I had a lot of questions — all sorts of them.  She always remained a great source of information and guided me through the entire process during our 5 month journey.  She was easily accessible and accommodating, so I gained a comfort level, which is important when you’re making one of the most important decisions of your life.”

Avani M.

“Matt Brown was extremely professional. He was knowledgeable, responsive and detail oriented. The sale of our apartment was quick and easy thanks to Matt and his team. The photographer was excellent and the marketing materials were top notch. The Showingbook electronic notification system made scheduling showings a painless process. We would highly recommend Matt and his team at Halstead!”

T.M Rodgers

“Matt and Peter are great real estate agents. They are extremely knowledgeable about the current state of the market and helped us to price and set up our Hoboken condo so that it was very attractive to buyers. The marketing materials Halstead produces are top-quality, and we were very impressed by their deep understanding of the metrics of the market. We met with Matt and Peter initially, and then worked with Matt after that. He is very easy going and calm, but also insightful and on top of everything. His office runs very smoothly, keeping you informed about showings and next steps. He made the selling process effortless for us. I highly recommend using them to sell your home.”

Frank Lantz

“Peter was such a pleasure to work with. From the moment I got in touch with him (a referral from someone else who loved working with him), he was extremely responsive to my many (many) questions, often responding in just a few minutes by email, phone, and even text! He also had incredible insight to the Hoboken area since he lives here. Everything you want to know about restaurants, to the commute, to the schools for your future kids! He went further to provide us contacts from a lawyer to work with to his own housekeeper! Peter and his partners are not just agents but true friends/neighbors if you plan to buy in the area. Highly recommended if you want an agent who is positive, friendly, and applies zero pressure in the home buying process!”

Sara G.

“Matt Brown and Peter Cossio are great to work with. They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They recently sold our condo for us and the sale was completed quickly and professionally. I would highly recommend them!”

Joe & Stephanie Signora

We worked with Matt Brown and his team and had a great experience. He was highly accessible by phone and email at all times and a true partner in selling our apartment. His team was highly professional and we felt confidant in their abilities the entire time. We feel that we were very lucky to have chosen Matt Brown and had a very good experience during a time that can be very stressful.

Hugo Pronti Artist Lofts Owners Amanda & Nolan Goldberg

“Matt, Peter and Kim Sullivan-Beier did an amazing job not only helping us to sell our house quickly and efficiently, but also a price that exceeded our estimates. Their knowledge of not only Jersey City, but also our specific neighborhood proved instrumental in making things go smoothly. I can’t recommend their services enough.”

Jeff Rohe

“Without even minor hesitation, Halstead Property is where you should be if you’re looking to buy/rent in the Hoboken and Jersey City areas.  I’ve just completed my 2nd sale with Peter Cossio and Matt Brown and have known them for nearly a decade.  I am confident to recommend them because of their many years of experience and competence as well as their knowledge of the market and current trends.  They are honest, forthcoming, committed, and will work tirelessly to help you either sell or find a home.”

Gavin B.

“I have used Matt & Peter to sell two of my places and highly recommend them. Their knowledge of the area and of the real estate field is superior to all. They are professional, honest, hard working, quick to respond, and insanely detailed.
If you are looking to sell (or buy) in this area, I wouldn’t go anywhere else!”


Peter and Matt, Thank you to you and your team for all of your skill and hard working in selling our brownstone. Your experience, knowledge and professionalism came together in a seamless execution. Your marketing stood above all others. We continue to recommend you to anyone we know looking to buy or sell a property.

Craig and Joanne Laurie

“Matt Brown and his partner Peter Cossio are simply the best real estate team in the area.  They do ongoing analysis of the local Hoboken/Jersey City home/condo sales and have an extensive network of marketing & contacts that will get your place sold quickly.  Despite placing our condo on the market   in the late fall- they were able to sell it within one week of its listing.  In addition to that- Matt was integral with assisting us getting our condo prepared for the open house to guiding the process of attorney review to the final closing.  He is aggressive and effective while maintaining a calm & friendly disposition.  My husband and I highly recommend him and would call him again in the future if we required his services.”

Amit & Foram Desai Gupta

“After interviewing multiple realtors, we hired Matt and Peter based on the thoughtfulness of their sales strategy, including pricing rationale, suggested cosmetic upgrades, timeline, and marketing materials. They also managed and coordinated vendors (stagers, contractor), which made the entire process easier on us. Their strategy worked perfectly — they far exceeded our expectations on both the number and the strength of offers we received. We plan to work with them again to purchase an investment property in Hoboken.”

Catherine Desoe

“My wife and I were extremely happy with the services provided by Matt and Peter. They did a great job with everything from recommending contractors to help prep the property for sale, providing comps and local knowledge to set a favorable yet fair sale price, and working with us and our tenants every step of the way to create a very smooth process for everyone involved. Hoboken can be a tricky place to own property due to the city’s endless restrictions, codes, and antiquated rules, but Matt and Peter are great resources to help guide you through all the hurdles. These guys should definitely be your first stop if you’re looking to purchase or sell a property in the Hoboken/Jersey City area.”

K2 Global Properties

“Focused, responsive, detail-oriented. Matt Brown and Peter Cossio have been there for us throughout the whole process of selling our uptown house in Hoboken. The end result? The house was sold in two days above asking price. We would highly recommend Matt and Peter who on top of being great professionals with a sense of humor will spare you the bla-bla and “story telling” all too often heard in the real estate business.”

Bernie Gallois

“It is with the sincerest gratitude that I write this acknowledgment of Matt Brown and Peter Cossio as our professional representatives. As my wife and I sought to sell our home, Matt and Peter went above and beyond the typical real estate broker role, becoming trusted advisors who we relied on for unvarnished advice and counsel. Throughout the entire process from staging the home to the day of closing, Matt and Peter were professional, conscientious, and motivated. I always felt as though my wife and I were their only clients, even though I knew that was not the case. I wholeheartedly recommend Matt and Peter to anyone in need of real estate services (buy or sell) and would not hesitate to come back to them for any future real estate transactions.”

Chris McDonough

“Matt and Peter are truly exceptional. When we were looking to sell our place, Matt and Peter were highly recommended by two separate people. After working with them, I understand why. They know the area very well and made the process of selling our brownstone very seamless. They really helped us every step of the way, were incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and professional. Their attention to detail and connections and reach really helped us to sell our home very quickly for a great price. They really went the extra mile. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”

Tara Muller

“Would highly recommend Peter and Matt – we’ve used them to help both purchase a home and sell it. They are terrific.”

Sumi Aggarwal

“Matt & Peter are the best in Hoboken hands down! Matt helped us get a handy person to make minor fixes, recommended a stager, and marketed our property. The result was a property that was on the market less than a full week with 7-8 offers above asking.”

David & Erin Gisonno

“I’ve worked with Peter Cossio and his partner, Matt Brown for many years through several home buying and selling experiences. Peter’s experience and knowledge of the real estate field is incredible, and the effort he makes to meet his customer’s needs is above and beyond what anyone would expect from an average broker. I’m happy to have worked with Peter, and I consider him a friend.”


“I have known Matt for many years now and have purchased 2 properties with him; this was my first sale with him. Not only is Matt very knowledgeable of the Hoboken/Jersey City markets and has the patience of a saint, but also knows how to reassure you when things do not go perfectly as planned. My condo was very professionally listed and looked amazing in the brochure he produced. Within 10 days my apartment was under contract. I very highly recommend Matt and Peter for any real estate transactions in the Hoboken/Jersey City area.”

Diana Wyant

“I would absolutely recommend Hudson Realty Group and Peter Cossio to anyone looking to buy or rent in Hoboken.  My wife and I just recently purchased a condo in Hoboken and am very satisfied with the professionalism, competence, honesty and humor that Peter provided.
Peter was also super accommodating with times to show us condos and answer questions.  If you are looking for a place in Hoboken or the surrounding area, I would highly recommend them!”

Brian K.

“I was astounded by Peter & Matt’s expertise, strict professionalism, responsive assistance, and attention to detail in selling our Hoboken townhouse. We had considered selling the property ourselves; we are SO grateful that we found Peter & Matt instead. There is no doubt that they achieved for us a much better result. And, they were kind, sympathetic, and easy to work with in the emotionally-fraught experience of selling our house.”

Laura Burkhart

“ Matt and Peter were absolutely brilliant, they are absolutely the only realtors you should use in Hoboken. They know the market inside and out and made our house look amazing.

Dean & Mukti Cerio

Thanks to Matt and Peter, I had an easy and smooth sale of my apartment. Given that I live outside of the United States, I needed reliable partners to guide me through the process and take over a lot of activities that I was not able to perform myself. They were incredibly helpful with their advice, support and expertise.  I have worked with Peter for over 10 years, starting with the purchase of my apartment, renting it out and now with the sale and I would use him again every time.

J. Schroedter

“When we decided to sell our condo, we met with several agents and Matt and Peter clearly stood out from the rest. We have bought and sold properties in Hoboken a few times and they are–in our opinion–the best real estate duo in town. They are professional, knowledgeable, and attentive from start to finish. In our initial meeting, Matt walked us through the steps that would help us maximize the value of our home, and in the weeks that followed he helped us to execute those steps to perfection. Two of the many things that make Matt and Peter so good at what they do are their attention to the small details and their marketing savvy. They managed the professional staging of our home and created magnificent marketing materials that were head and shoulders above anything else we’ve ever seen in Hoboken. They also managed to place a very visible ad of our listing in the Sunday edition of the New York Times to help bring in buyers from NYC. We had 10 offers on our condo within days of listing and Matt carefully guided us through the ins and outs of each one and masterfully negotiated terms on our behalf. We were extremely happy with our final sale price, which far exceeded our asking price, thanks to Matt and Peter.”


“Happy to report a wonderful experience with Hudson Realty Group/Halstead Hoboken.
I’ve bought/sold four properties in the NYC area, using different agents/agencies. I found the professionalism with Matt & Peter (Hudson/Halstead) unparalleled. And their marketing plan is top-notch.
From the initial consultation to the sale, the entire process went off without a hitch.   Matt was incredibly responsive. I can’t imagine a better experience.
If I were still in the NYC area, I would definitely use them again. I am recommending them to family and friends in the area. And everyone else that reads Yelp ;)”

Alex P.

“Matt Brown and Peter Cossio know how to get it done. Our townhouse had two finished floors and a primitive third floor. Matt and Peter persuaded us to put a little money into the third floor and they were absolutely right. The payback was probably $200,000! Hoboken is a hot market and Matt and Peter know it very well, especially high-end townhouses. They do a lot of thinking about how to get the most for your home. Their company has connections in NYC and Brooklyn which increases your visibility. They were also able to recommend an excellent real estate company to us to help us buy a house in our new location.”


“Peter Cossio and Matt Brown did a fabulous job in helping us sell our house. They are extremely professional and knew exactly how to price our home to give us the best possible outcome. The marketing materials they produce are superior to any I have seen by other firms. They are very knowledgeable of the area and the market and were very pleasant to work with. I absolutely recommend them!!!”

Jane Laitman

“Matt and Peter take the art of selling a brownstone in Hoboken to another level – telling you how to stage your home, using tasteful marketing, and bringing a huge network of potential clients to the table.”

Jill Preston

“My experience with Hudson Realty Group/Halstead Property and Peter Cossio has always been a pleasure. His commitment, competence, and honesty make the process of buying property painless. HRG is extremely helpful when it comes down to showing property; for example, Peter really takes note of what his clients are looking for, and intuitively shows them fitting choices. I always feel comfortable asking him questions about the process and trust that he’ll put me on the right path.
And if you happen to be moving from out-of-town, Peter’s knowledge of the community he serves is amazing. From the best shoe-repair guy, to the best restaurants… just ask & he won’t steer you wrong.”

Matt S.

“Matt and Peter were exceptional with communicating to me on sales trends, offers, etc. I highly recommend Matt Brown from Halstead to list your property with – Halstead has a great marketing team to help advertise your property as well – it is not often you find brokers that treat their clients and listings as if it were their own – their expertise and connections in the market place, especially Hudson country is second to none – Matt and Peter are everything you could ask for when looking for a credible firm/agent.”

D. Lenter

“We just bought our first property with Peter Cossio from Hudson Realty Group. We were new to Hoboken and new to buying – and Peter led us through the process from start to finish. He knew a ton about the neighborhood and was very helpful on giving us insight to make a smart decision. Overall, I am super happy with our new place and with the quality of our experience with Peter. I would recommend him and Hudson Realty to anyone buying in the area. I will definitely be coming back for our next property!”

Dawn R.

“Everyone knows that selling a house can be stressful. And the realtor you choose can make or break the experience. We learned that lesson only too well. When my husband and I decided to sell our home in Hoboken we choose our realtor poorly and had a terrible experience. But then, Matt Brown and Peter Cossio entered the picture. We couldn’t have been happier. Matt and Peter helped us get our home ready to sell, communicated with us clearly and consistently, and made us feel like we were at the top of their client list. Matt and Peter are highly professional and knowledgeable. And they’re nice to boot! We would use them again in a heartbeat, and recommend them to others wholeheartedly.”

Dina Rose

“Effie and I just want to thank you both for helping us, as you were trustworthy and confident professionals throughout the entire experience. We would not hesitate to refer clients to you.”

Effie Tsu & Matt Smith

“THE BEST! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Matt Brown and Peter Cossio are the only realtors I work with in the Hoboken area. They are knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy, consistent and responsive. Truly a great team that provides top notch service.”

Colleen L.

Kim Sullivan-Beier

“Kim is top notch. She combines her extensive knowledge of real estate with a sense of kindness for the sellers. She treated us like family. If you use Kim in a real estate transaction you are getting the best. Highly, highly recommended.”

Louis Pruitt

“Kim knows her market and had us covered from start to finish. Astute, listened to our needs, and adept at navigating all the details, she had us covered from purchase to the sale of our condo. Pitch perfect advice every step of the way. Kim totally rocks – can’t recommend her enough.”

Randy Stringra

We worked with Matt Brown and his team and had a great experience. He was highly accessible by phone and email at all times and a true partner in selling our apartment. His team was highly professional and we felt confidant in their abilities the entire time. We feel that we were very lucky to have chosen Matt Brown and had a very good experience during a time that can be very stressful.

Hugo Pronti Artist Lofts Owners Amanda & Nolan Goldberg

“Kim helped me rent my place and also buy a new condo in Hoboken. She is awesome to work with. On her game, responsive and completely candid. She works for you as a buyer or seller. I’ve continued to leverage Kim for her expertise in the Hoboken. It’s a partnership that will be long lasting.”

Cindy Quan

I would definitely recommend Kim and the Hudson Realty Group team at Halstead!  Kim helped with both the purchase of our new home, and the sale of our existing home in Hoboken. My wife and I met Kim at an open house when we were only opportunistically looking, and she impressed us with her knowledge of the market, and the time she took to understand our situation and our motivations. It was an easy decision that evening after we met, that we should work with Kim exclusively and to start looking more seriously for our next home. Throughout the process Kim was incredibly polite, responsive and knowledgeable. She took a lot of time in the evenings and weekends to show us places, and got closer and closer to finding what we wanted. Once we walked into our future new home, we knew immediately that it was the place for us. Kim made us comfortable making an aggressive offer to secure our dream home. Since our offer was accepted, we needed to get our current place sold quickly. Within days we had worked with Kim to get the place listed, and the first open house that weekend which ended up being a success. We secured the sale shortly after. I doubt there are better realtors to work with in the North NJ area, and I will be using Kim for all future business, and she will be getting all my referrals. Keep up the good work Hudson Realty Group team!

Paul and Carina

“Kim and her team were excellent in guiding me through the rental process and getting my condo unit ready for perspective tenants. She was very thorough and thought of every little detail from the condo’s photos, listing, and scheduling of appointments! Her team used a very helpful app to schedule and keep track of all showings. She helped me through the lease process and made sure that I was protected as a landlord. She was a pleasure to work with and I will highly recommend Kim and her team to my friends!”

Peter Bakarich

“Matt, Peter and Kim Sullivan-Beier did an amazing job not only helping us to sell our house quickly and efficiently, but also a price that exceeded our estimates. Their knowledge of not only Jersey City, but also our specific neighborhood proved instrumental in making things go smoothly. I can’t recommend their services enough.”

Wes Page

We worked with Matt Brown and his team and had a great experience. He was highly accessible by phone and email at all times and a true partner in selling our apartment. His team was highly professional and we felt confidant in their abilities the entire time. We feel that we were very lucky to have chosen Matt Brown and had a very good experience during a time that can be very stressful.

Hugo Pronti Artist Lofts Owners Amanda & Nolan Goldberg

To start, I really only need to say two things about working with Westley Page as our realtor in selling our condo:

  1.  The apartment sold on the 8th day of its listing…
  2. ….and at full price.

The reason that wonder of a real estate transaction happened is that Westley offered us astute and on-target suggestions for preparing our condo for sale. We followed each and every one. And for first-time sellers, he was helpful and encouraging and always responsive to our emails and text, offering expert advice and guidance. I couldn’t recommend a better partner in that all important transaction of a home sale than Wes Page.

“Wes was extremely attentive and responsive throughout our home search.  His knowledge of Hoboken and Jersey City were much appreciated and helped us really get a feel for what we wanted.  Once we had decided on a property, Wes continuously collaborated and coordinated with the other brokers and lawyers which was a big help and took a lot of stress off of us.  Even after closing, Wes has been a great resource for neighborhood referrals and assistance. We could not have done it without him!”

Gillian Bleimann

“Wes Page is a phenomenal realtor! We have dealt with many realtors over the years from cities across the U.S. and Canada. So this is not an idle compliment.  Wes worked hard for us from day 1. Given that we were coming from California to explore investments in NJ, he could not have known whether his efforts would result in anything. And we were not sure we would buy as quickly as we did. Wes made that easy. He knew the community, knew the market, and was very professional in all of our dealings with him. I felt like we could be honest with him and that would not affect his commitment to us.  Many realtors we have dealt with over the years do as little as possible. Send annoying e-listings and are not particularly helpful with research and information. Wes stands with the top 1% of realtors genuinely interested in the needs of the client. Wes deserved the sale we made with him; he held our hand in a foreign market, was not pushy, but made sure we had what we needed to make an informed decision. We would recommend Wes Page to anyone shopping in the Hoboken market or any other markets he may represent. Wish there were many more Wes Pages!”
