About Miriam E Perez

Born & raised in New York City... Been in the neighborhood 45+ years... Total local girl... Attended grammar school across the street and high school just 8 blocks away at the prestigious Brooklyn Technical High School where I fell in love with the study of architecture. I continued my academic journey in architecture in college and I have been helping people build pretty houses most of my career.

When the market shifted and I was downsized, I became a licensed NYC sight-seeing guide and worked for 4 years as a tour director specializing in college tours around the country. I am now self-employed, working with start ups, traveling around the country working on development projects and currently writing my first book on the journey to homeownership.

Miriam E Perez purchased this house in 1997

Why Miriam E Perez chose Park Slope

This is truly the house that love built. I came across it as an abandoned house and I fell in love immediately with the location and details. Over the years, I was able to completely renovate the house and truly make it my own.

It epitomizes the Brooklyn story of the revitalization, and still maintains a lot of old Brooklyn charm.

And as they say about real estate, location, location, location! There's lot to see and do that is in walking distance, and the property is close to Manhattan. It's a 15 minute train ride to the Wall Street, and about a 30 minute ride to midtown Manhattan. And if you rather walk, the Brooklyn Bridge is about 1.5 miles away.

What makes this house unique

Close to all transportation routes, BQE, Prospect Expressway, Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge. You can get to the JFK Airport in about 45 minutes thru public transportation (Long Island Rail Road (L.I.R.R.) to the Air Train at Jamaica Station).

We are within walking distance of 11 train lines, plus the Long Island Rail Road. We are just steps away from Park Slope's vibrant 5th Avenue retail and dining corridor, which is one of one of New York's best neighborhoods. We are known for our selection of thrift shops and great variety of restaurants.

I am a licensed New York City Tour Director and is always happy to help guests with their itinerary and suggestions for local restaurants and sights.

Great stay in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

There were 6 of us that stayed for the ACC Tournament. Park Slope is a wonderful neighborhood with numerous restaurants close by and a grocery store one half block from the house. The home was perfect for us. Miriam is responsive on any questions about the home, Brooklyn, and things to do in Manhattan.

Excellent location and well appointed Brooklyn charm

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this lovely 3 level home with my mother for a holiday visit with my brother and his family who live on Park Slope in Brooklyn and this was a short 5 block walk to their brownstone. There is a grocery store less than a block from the townhome and a plethora of cafes, restaurants and boutique shops all within walking distance. The subway with an express to Manhattan is within 3 blocks as well. This townhome is beautifully appointed with comfortable beds, sitting areas and a large fairly well stocked kitchen.

The only issue to be aware of is one all townhomes and brownstones in Brooklyn have: steep narrow stairwells. There are sturdy railings, but if you have family with mobility issues these staircases could prove a challenge. This is not a complaint for us as we love the old world architecture and charm of the Brooklyn area.

Maria was very helpful and gave wonderful ideas for holiday family fun in the area. Her home guide included excellent maps and a history of the area (which my mother was so enamoured of she made a copy to take home with her!).

We would definitely stay here again!

Great stay in Brooklyn

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed in this Park Slope town home. It was well appointed, comfortable and a wonderful location. It even has a lovely back yard. Our hostess was very welcoming. She even offered a pack n play and a stroller. I recommend this home to any group looking for 3-4 bedrooms. Thanks, Miriam for a great week!!

Great for big families

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Brooklyn townhouse which had plenty of room for our family of 7. Each room was beautifully decorated and bathrooms and kitchen had beautiful, updated remodels. Bedding was comfortable and there was an air conditioner in each room. The apartment is 1/2 block for a big grocery store, so we saved money by cooking meals in the kitchen. 5th Ave. is full of restaurants and fun shops. Atlantic Ave. subway is a 5 minute walk away so it's easy to go anywhere in the city. We had a great stay!

This is a very family-oriented neighborhood and many of the local children are home schooled. Please keep noise level to a minimum, especially in the back yard.

I must insist on proper recycling. We do check every single bag. There are instructions by the garbage bags. I must insist on that there be no smoking of any kind anywhere in the house, or on the premises. Again, there is a $1,500 penalty for smoking of any kind in the house.

Please keep the shades to the garden floor front window closed. It becomes a security concern if the shades are open since it faces the street. It is a safe neighborhood, but you just never know stranger's intentions.

The security gate on the garden level is to be kept locked at all times. You don't have to lock it with the key. It has a Slam Lock and locks automatically.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
