Call it a pad crawl.

An inventive group of Brooklyn-based real estate agents hosted the first-ever “pub crawl” of open houses in Carroll Gardens on Sunday, showcasing one block of not-too-crazy-expensive (well, at least for Brownstone Brooklyn) apartments.

The lead agency, Aguayo and Huebener — which calls itself the “down-to-earth” company — gave a small group of apartment-hunters a peek at three $350,000-range one-bedrooms on Clinton Street, all with either gardens or roof decks. The goal was not only to lure clients, but also to re-energize real-estate agents in the midst of the slow summer months.

“We’re just trying to be clever,” said Kate Akerly, who said her firm came up with the idea after noticing a cluster of online real estate advertisements that touted properties just a few feet from one another. “Nobody wants to sit on a listing forever — so we collaborat­ed.”

Corcoran and Ideal Properties Group were also involved in the project.

The crawl included a peek at 533 Clinton St., a charming brick building with a “sun-filled living room,” “cherry cabinets” and “stainless steel appliances” near Luquer Street, a few blocks from Smith Street’s famous “Restaurant Row.”
