HARLEM — The city’s top real estate brokers are heading Uptown.

The Real Estate Board of New York is going to host a free two-day open house expo that takes potential homebuyers to Harlem, Washington Heights and Inwood on May 2 and 3.

“This is a rare opportunity for the general public to tour an incredible variety of exclusive listings, at multiple price ranges, all in one single weekend,” said Brian Phillips, co-chairman for REBNY’s Upper Manhattan Committee.

More than 20 co-ops, condos, townhouses and luxury listings will be available to view from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event will kick off with a complementary breakfast at Harlem Tavern. Brokers from Citi Habitats, Halstead Properties, Lucien Perry and other firms around the city will be on hand to showcase their listings.

“If you’re looking for a new place to call home this spring or are just curious about what Upper Manhattan has to offer, this is the best opportunity to find it and see firsthand what the uptown ‘buzz’ is all about,” said DeAnna Rieber, an Associate Broker for Halstead Property.

Uptown's real estate market has been heating up for the last couple of years and the trend shows no signs of stopping, records show.

First-quarter apartment sale prices in West Harlem, Washington Heights and Inwood were all higher than last year. In West Harlem and Inwood the boost was more than 30 percent, according to REBNY's first quarter report.
