PHP Realty Services

Helping prospective buyers of New York luxury real estate navigate the complexities of evaluating, negotiating, and procuring a property


PHP Realty Services is a unique buyer's broker advisory firm exclusively representing buyers of New York City luxury residential real estate. We are not brokers in the traditional sense, as we only advise buyers, helping them find and close on a property that meets their unique needs while offering attractive long-term capital gain potential.

Real Estate is a very special type of equity: you live in it, work in it, raise your family in it. No wonder the choice is monumental and the decision-making so challenging, particularly in a dynamic metropolis like NYC. Large brokerage firms typically prioritize the seller, as closing a sale is a quicker and easier way to generate income for the firm. PHP has different priorities. We are advisors, not salesmen - and the lasting accomplishment of finding someone a new home is our pride and passion. Since we exclusively represent you, the buyer, our expertise, judgment, and advice are conspicuously neutral.

The seller pays all broker commissions, so our service to you, the buyer, is free.

President and Founder

Paul Hyman sees real estate as a creative journey. He feels that the client/ advisor relationship can be uniquely productive if conceived as a team.  Employing the synergies of such teamwork, he has been satisfying clients since founding PHP in 1995. Prior to his career in real estate, Paul photographed fashion, people and lifestyle for Japanese and American Magazines.  His photographs of Morocco are in the permanent collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Paul is a member of REBNY (Real Estate Board of New York).

Senior advisor

Karen Nemeth has a natural affinity for the concept of home and an innate desire to make people happy.  She earned a degree in Civil Engineering from the prestigious Cooper Union, and while at school won a National Science Foundation Fellowship which took her to Ghana to study sustainable housing and help upgrade standards of living. Karen is particularly interested in greener styles of living, and she donates 10% of all her LEED or other sustainable building commissions to the World Wildlife Fund. Prior to joining PHP, Karen was a construction project manager spearheading renovations for such non-profits as The Spence School and the 9/11 Memorial Museum. Complementing her interest in architecture are her keen interpersonal skills and tech savvy that connect Karen to her clients and community.  She enjoys spending time with her dog at the various Upper West Side dog runs, in addition to mountain climbing, scuba diving, and anything outdoors.

Our goal is your goal, whatever it takes." Before working in real estate, Khaula worked in the media and entertainment industry and is also actively involved with cancer research.
