We were referred to Brandon through our attorney. We were trying to make a quick offer on an apartment in a neighborhood we weren't familiar with but needed for vocational reasons. We just closed, and are so grateful for Brandon's help. He helped us pull the offer together, helped us organize our board package, and was great about keeping in touch. He took the time to explain the process to us and saw us clearly through to the end. We had a great experience working with him!
It’s easy to see that Rob and his team are top brokers in Manhattan, but they truly care about their clients. Rob went above and beyond getting us the best deal for our home and educating us all along the way. He was a true advocate for us and made the experience as seamless as possible. The NY real estate market has been tough but Rob was able to close an amazing deal for us. His whole team was wonderful to work with and maintained his high standard of professionalism.
Rob was such an asset and help us buy our first apartment! He was extremely patient with me during the search, we visited countless apartments and he was an invaluable source of advice during a process that felt intimidating. He also closed the deal when the seller had multiple offers and has stayed in touch to check in during our renovation. I would highly recommend him if you're looking for an honest, invested, and sharp agent.
Brandon was unbelievably attentive, patient, and hard-working throughout the entire rental search process. He listened to exactly what I wanted, found apartments quickly that fit all of my criteria, and never made me feel rushed or pressured. He was a wonderful person and Realtor® to work with, and I would recommend him to any friend searching for a rental or condo to buy in New York City.
Steve has been my agent for years and recently helped me purchase a new co-op. His knowledge of the market and the issues involved with co-ops made my deal work. I could not be happier with the service and responsiveness during my search. He remained an important resource as I close the deal and plan a renovation. It's a great team that Steve has put together and I recommend it without reservation!
Rob and his team assisted me with renting out my apartment after I relocated. I was very apprehensive but Rob made everything completely seamless and low-stress. He worked tirelessly to find me a great tenant and made me feel very comfortable and confident throughout the process. Rob will be my go-to person for all my future real estate needs!
My wife and I had the pleasure to work with Rob and his team variety of transactions. Rob consistently puts his client's best interest first. In an industry that is translucent at best, Rob provides insight, intelligence, and patience at the most crucial moments. You'd be hard-pressed to be better served than working this team.
Brandon helped us find a new apartment in Williamsburg. We were moving from Manhattan and needed someone with experience as we had little knowledge of the area. He was very organized, and responsive and helped with a smooth transition. I would highly recommend working with Brandon.
Rob helped us find the perfect apartment for our family! He was so patient with us as first-time homeowners and walked us through each step of the process. We love our apartment and neighborhood and would recommend him to family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, etc!
We don't live in NYC and having Brandon there representing us was the best thing that happened to us. He was a huge help, super professional, and always had our interests as his priority. Friendly, smart, responsible, polite, and patient are the best words to describe him.
