Born and raised just across the Hudson River in New York City, Steven has always had an affinity for New Jersey’s thriving Gold Coast even before he made the move to Weehawken. As a current resident of Port Imperial, his firsthand experience as a business owner and member of the community is invaluable to him as a Real Estate professional.
As the proud owner of his eponymous café, Steven references all of his experience as a business owner while pursuing his real estate career. At an early age his father introduced him to the family business, a deli on the Upper East Side in New York. He eventually went on to take over the family business when the deli was moved to the heart of Times Square. Later, he ventured into the hospitality industry and became a member of the New York Hotel Trades Council. The accumulation of all these experiences has given Steven a keen business acumen that has been developed over many years of working with people face to face.
Wanting to remain close to the city, Steven decided to move to Port Imperial in Weehawken. Discovering this new community was a pleasant surprise; he became intrigued with the concept of this waterfront oasis. Recognizing the potential of this burgeoning neighborhood, Steven decided to partner with Nelson Chen in creating Steven’s Café. Shortly thereafter he partnered with Roseland Residential in his newest business venture, Thirst by Steven’s Café, thereby firmly establishing himself as a fixture in the community.
With a steady hand on the pulse of the community, Steven’s entrepreneurial spirit has now lead him to The Chen Agency, where he looks to grow his real estate career in Port Imperial and beyond.
Outside of work, Steven enjoys fine dining, jazz, physical fitness, spending time with family and giving back to the community. With a fascination for New York City’s skyscrapers and world renowned architecture, you can often find him on the New Jersey waterfront admiring the view.
