"Asit was my first choice to help me rent out my West Village condo after meeting several brokers. He was knowledgeable about the right price and gave excellent advice on how to screen for the right tenant. He found the right people within a week and stayed engaged throughout the entire process ensuring everything was covered. We had a difficult management company and I didn't need to get involved at all. Asit took care of everything. I cannot recommend him enough" - Cathy
"Asit has unparalleled knowledge of the NYC real estate market (especially downtown). He is on top of current trends and regional dynamics in each neighborhood. His approach is unique and his insights are savvy. Most importantly, Asit genuinely treasures the relationships he builds and diligently looks after his clients' long term well-being. If you are looking for professional real estate insights, I would highly recommend contacting Asit." - Eugene
"Asit was as helpful to me as anyone in the NYC real estate industry has ever been and he wasn't even my broker. It really speaks to his integrity and work ethic how hard he worked to assist me in my transaction without even having been employed by me. I have and will continue to recommend his services to everyone I know." - Sean
"Asit sold my apartment in Manhattan in December 2014, and it was a pleasure to work with him. He would go the extra step without fail and always with a smile on his face. He listened to your opinions, made himself available at anytime, and wasn't just trying to make a sale. As the seller's broker, he showed real skill in highlighting all the wonderful aspects of your place while also being upfront and realistic about any negatives to potential buyers. I would recommend Asit." - Tina
Asit represents developers, sellers, and buyers seeking a top-dollar return in today's current market environment. An avid New Yorker for the past 21 years, and professional in the NYC design/build sector for the past 13, Asit moves through this city and through the real estate sector faster than most brokers today. Because Asit knows this city- and the people in it- better than most brokers today. He provides a unique and powerful set of 'Concierge' services to his developer and seller clients. Ranging from zoning and code pre-consideration prior to DOB filing, to cost estimation, parametric/generative building modeling, to connect them with top designers, to obtaining green-building financing, to having laser cut models completed on time and budget, Asit and his team expertly guides clients- both local and international- to return of capital.
Representing buyers firmly and with a smile, Asit uses the facts to negotiate maximum return on investment. Going deeper than "price per square foot", Asit costs out long-term ownership, renovation, change of use, and any filing or compliance work in the physical space that may not be recognized by untrained Brokers or visible to an Attorney reviewing documents.
Working with investors and owners on exclusive rentals, Asit and his team provide superior property management services, including pre-screening tenants, handling leases, presenting annual rent vs. sell analysis, and managing every aspect of the physical space.
Asit studied Economics and Psychology at New York University, was a Project Manager in their office of Planning and Construction while a student, and completed graduate work in Psychology of Judgment and Decision Making. For the past ten years works with the Cooper Union School of Engineering, Center for Innovation and Energy Reclamation and has participated in some of the most successful geothermal and heat recovery projects around the world. In addition, he completed both the CUNY Construction Management program, PassivHaus training, has assisted in the design/build his own family's home that is Cradle-to-Cradle, PassivHaus, and LEED-certified with a perfect score. He was a panelist at the 2012 Wall Street Green Summit and twice was invited to the US House of Representatives to testify on combating climate change through the built environment. He is a former NYC Zoning and Building Code expert and is a currently registered Filing Representative with the NYC Department of Buildings.
Prior to 13 years in the design/build sector, Asit was a behavioral strategist and political campaign launcher, dot-commer and brand valuation analyst, and interned in the Real Estate/REITs privately-held division in 1997. At the age of 19, he worked as an Assistant Producer for a radio station.
Time and again, the powerful professional and personal networks Asit has formed from being a Manhattan and Brooklyn resident for the past 21 years and living and growing with, and biking through New York City all along- is what gives Asit the capabilities to provide superior representation to his clients. Asit is a resident of the far west village and can often be seen with his assistant, a rescue Beagle-Boston terrier named Basco, hunting deals and making at least two parties smile, one transaction at a time.
