Look what our clients have to say about working with us.

Private equity executive, Penthouse purchaser

Ian is a consummate professional who clearly prides himself on delivering exceptional service. From the moment we met Ian, he impressed us with his knowledge-base and accurate assessment of current market conditions. Ian ultimately helped us navigate several complexities while simultaneously selling our primary residence and buying a new condo for our growing family during COVID. Throughout the process Ian consistently brought a high level of attention, creativity, wisdom and know-how that helped us successfully find and seamlessly transition to a new home that is special to us. We have and will continue to enthusiastically recommend him to friends and colleagues.

Ian was introduced to me via the concierge at the Four Seasons hotel, as I was in need of an apartment swiftly and did not have much time to look. He listened to my needs and narrowed my options down to three perfect options, but the best one had an offer on it. Through Ian's diligence, drive and connections, he was able to secure me that apartment regardless, where I have lived happily for three years. Additionally, he has been instrumental in helping my daughter find a beautiful apartment to purchase downtown, and I have recommended him to multiple family members and close friends. He is without a doubt the best broker in New York knows the market better than anyone I have spoken to, and will become a close friend to anyone who works with him!

Ian was a referral from a friend of mine. I had told my friend I needed someone with the energy and effort to find me an apartment quickly after. I was moving out of my rental apartment and looking for something permanent to purchase. I had a few months before my lease was up, so in an ideal situation hoped to be moved in when the lease ended. Ian stepped in and right from the start took the time to understand what I was looking for and important to me. He sent me listings to look at to narrow down exactly what I was looking for. After seeing just 3 apartments, he took me to a unit on East 8th Street, and just like that we made an offer before it went on the market, it was perfect! Ian is extremely motivated, easy to work with, a listener, and very knowledgeable in the industry. He made this process so seamless and found me my dream home!

I previously listed my apartment for sale at 30 West Street. The unit sat there for about 6 months with a previous broker. Then Ian came in and completely turned it around. He had so many innovative ideas to stage and market the unit, which created a high volume of traffic. The place sold less than a month later. Not only does Ian have an impeccable eye for detail but his expertise in the business, legal, and lending field created a seamless experience. He puts his client's interests first and truly takes passion in his work.

Global Private Equity Investor

We originally engaged Ian to find a two-bedroom rental. Before long, it became clear that it might make more sense to buy v. rent. Ian patiently brought us up the curve on the market and presented us with many alternatives. Early on, he noted the unit that he believed offered the best potential value proposition. By the end of the process, he negotiated a very impressive deal and we ended up purchasing it. Without his detailed-oriented market knowledge, communication skills, and negotiation skills, we would have never done it. We’re thankful that we were introduced to him and we would strongly encourage others to work with him.

The minute we reached out to Ian, he was genuine, reliable, and relentless in finding us our new home. The New York City market can be intimidating, but we knew we were in safe hands. For us, it's now a no-brainer: Ian is our go-to agent.
