"Brad was instrumental in helping me sell my townhouse. Brad employed an excellent marketing plan and pricing strategy, and he provided a wealth of resources to ensure my home received great press and far-reaching digital exposure. The photographer and stager he recommended helped make the home look like a dream and I truly believe the superior digital presence of Stribling’s website combined with Brad’s unmatched professionalism helped secure us a qualified buyer quickly and at an amazing price. Brad made selling our home a breeze. I would recommend anyone seeking a personable and professional agent who has a tremendous amount of experience to contact Brad asap!" - Dom P.
"There aren't enough superlatives we can offer for Jessica's services and we
can personally vouch for her uncommon tenacity, calm, and diligence.
Jessica tirelessly shepherded the uniquely challenging sale of our co-op to
completion after a prior broker failed to do. She crafted a compelling
marketing campaign and deftly navigated several obstacles to secure a
record high price for the building.
She not only answered our incessant and often anxiety-ridden calls at all
hours - even while abroad on vacation - but did so with a comforting
empathy and gift for sober reassurance.
The sale of one's home can be a trying process - and having an engaged and
available broker quickly becomes invaluable.
We were so thoroughly impressed with her performance that we retained
Jessica a few months after that sale when we unexpectedly found a new home
While it came as absolutely no surprise, Jessica again distinguished
herself as an incredibly savvy and effective arbiter and we were able to
strike another highly favorable closing price.
In an environment where underperformance and empty promises have
regrettably become the norm, Jessica reminded us - repeatedly - that the
notion of professional pride is not yet extinct.
For your own sake, hire her without hesitation." - Rebecca R. & Selim A.
"Working with Brad to sell our condo was so quick and easy that we were in awe. It felt like we were sitting on our couch discussing the process with Brad and in the next moment he was showing us this jaw-dropping brochure with amazing photos that he staged with his photographer and taking to us about scheduling open houses. It was remarkable how he was able to encourage bidders to put forth their best offer and also how he helped us digest all of that information to select the best buyer. Brad knew that we were eager to sell quickly so that we could move on to a new home purchase yet he still was able to get us an offer that was above our asking price." - Matthew C.
"Jessica is hands down amazing. My husband and I couldn't imagine using
anyone else to help us sell our apartment in Brooklyn. Her calm and
thoughtful approach was exactly what we needed to guide us through the
stressful steps of listing our apartment and mentally preparing for the big
move from the city to the suburbs.
Jessica was equal parts broker, interior designer, therapist, and friend.
Her smart advice and local expertise helped us accurately price and market
our apartment to attract the right type of buyer, ensuring strong initial
offers and a quick and seamless approval process by our co-op board. Her
keen eye towards design helped us see our apartment in a new light and
prepare it for photos and the open house. As a family with two young
children -- and a mountain of toys -- we were doubtful we could pull off
this monumental task, but Jessica was up to the challenge. Not only did she
provide great tips on how to prepare and stage the apartment, but she
jumped right in, boxes and tools in hand, helping us pack up and rearrange
as we also juggled kids and work.
Moving can be very emotional, especially for us as we were taking the
uncertain plunge from city life to the suburbs. Jessica was always ready
with a listening ear and advice that would help calm my
oh-my-god-am-I-really-leaving-the-city-for-NJ anxieties. And after it all,
we continue to stay in touch. She even came out to see our new home and
delivered the most thoughtful housewarming present. There are a lot of
brokers out there, but Jessica is really someone special that will truly
respect and hold your interests as her top priority." -Stephanie and Tomasso B.
"There is not enough room on this page to describe how phenomenal it was to have Brad by our side for our brownstone hunting. Brad was so incredibly hard-working and magnificently patient with us – sending us dozens of listings and holding our hands through 40+ open houses, never once failing to answer our endless questions over 5 long months of searching. Additionally, our purchase ended up being slightly tricky and Brad relentlessly advocated on our behalf against a difficult seller and listing broker for yet another 5 months until we finally were able to close. It was a tough journey but we now live in our dream house and we have Brad to thank for it!" - Rena T.
"Jessica was quite simply put...AMAZING!
It was my first time buying a home in New York and I quickly learned I just
couldn't do it by myself given the competitiveness of the market. I had the
privilege (and luck!) of meeting Jessica at an open house as she and her
partner were the seller's agents.
I very quickly felt a tremendous connection with them both and decided to
start to work with them to help me find my dream condo in Brooklyn! And
with a little patience, their full transparency with sometimes unrealistic
expectations, we found a great condo with outdoor space and all in the
perfect neighborhood of Fort Greene.
I would highly recommend Jessica if you are looking for someone who will be
patient, honest, totally trustworthy and supportive through what can be a
fairly stressful process." - Jane N.
"As first time home buyers in New York, we couldn't have asked for a better broker than Brad. He helped guide us through our search across three neighborhoods in Brooklyn, and found us our ideal first home. Brad has in-depth knowledge of the city and the New York property market, and brings years of savvy to the process around making a bid, securing a mortgage, and completing a sale. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a stellar guide to all things NYC property." - James & Tess
"Jess helped us find and buy our Brooklyn home. She fought so hard for us
through stiff competition from other buyers, piles of paperwork, gathering
intel, last minute drama, ... she took it all in stride. She is a great
communicator, empathetic, experienced and knowledgeable. I know she had
other clients during that time but she made us feel like her most important
client. A true professional!" - David A.
"Ever since I knew I was moving back to New York from California a year ago, I was planning to buy a place in New York. Being located far away made things difficult, Brad was super helpful in getting to understand my needs and providing clear perspectives on the different neighborhoods within Manhattan and Brooklyn. Since I wasn't as familiar with the various neighborhoods, Brad took the time to show me around the different areas and explained the pros and cons for my personal lifestyle. He was always helpful and responsive even knowing that I may not be able to buy anything soon. Brad had a great network in helping me secure a great deal on loans, lawyer and a great place in Williamsburg. The entire process went extremely smoothly and have already referred a few of my friends to him who are also looking to buy!" - Winson W.
"We just spent a whole day walking the streets of Brooklyn with Jessica in
search of a rental apartment for my son. Jessica lined up appointments,
and accompanied us on each one providing insight and getting us answers to
questions. In addition she was a huge help guiding us not just in finding
the apartment but in assisting in the completion of paperwork and all that
entails. We had a short window to find an apartment and we could not have
done it without her." - Janet and Max F.
"Brad is highly attentive. He returned calls, e-mails and texts almost immediately. He is highly personable and engaging. I felt his knowledge and honesty throughout this process to be stellar. He made us feel comfortable and provided answers to any and every question we had. In the future when we are ready to sell our apartment Brad will be the first person I contact. I would also be happy, confident and comfortable referring Brad to anyone looking to purchase/sell in the city. " - Jessica P.
"We finally received the keys on our forever home last Monday thanks 100% to
As a first time buyer, after losing in bidding wars with another broker, I
had started to feel hopeless about being able to buy in our first choice
neighborhood. Jess helped us and coached us on strategy, from creatively
finding listings, accompanying us to open houses, advising us on when and
how much to bid, helping us with recommendations for lawyers and home
inspectors, being a shoulder to cry on when houses did not work out and
helping us dust ourselves off and get back into the saddle each time. Her
detailed knowledge of the block-by-block character of the neighborhood and
the quirks of historic houses was invaluable.
She is full of integrity and patience and just a good person through and
through. I consider her a true friend! " - Nina K.
"As a first time condo buyer, I have to say we feel extremely fortunate and thankful we found Brad Bateman to help us find our home in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. Brad was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and personable throughout the entire process and was able to answer all of our numerous questions. Brad provided us with ongoing feedback and regular communication throughout our search and the entire purchasing process. Brad’s savvy, connections and experience helped us to win a bidding war and secured us the apartment of our dreams. We will forever be grateful for Brad’s expertise in finding us a home in Brooklyn!" - Vik M.
"Brad’s knowledge of the city and real estate market helped me to find an apartment that suited all of my needs. He listened to my questions and concerns and was always helpful in guiding me throughout the complex NYC rental process. In the end, I ended up with an apartment that I love, in an area that I adore. I would recommend Brad without hesitation and look forward to the next home he helps me find." - Kelly M.
"Having just purchased my first apartment in Brooklyn Heights, I have to say that I was very lucky to have worked with Brad, and don’t think I could have successfully gone through this process without his expertise, help and guidance. New York’s real estate market is daunting and intimidating. Brad is extremely knowledgeable, professional and very well respected by his peers in the industry, which is a huge asset to have when navigating the numerous people involved in making an apartment purchase. Brad was able to seamlessly guide me through all the various stages of the process, and alleviate and resolve stressful situations. His knowledge of the market and business is unparalleled. On a personal level, Brad was always attentive, honest, responsive and very patient. He is someone who goes above and beyond for his clients. Working with Brad, I always felt protected and that he was looking out for my best interests. I have worked with other brokers prior to meeting Brad, and this was not always the case. I am so excited about my first home, and feel like it would not have happened had I not been working with Brad. I already have, and will continue to, recommend Brad to anyone looking to rent, sell or buy in the city." - Elena Z.
