"Brad is the best broker in Brooklyn. He is thorough, thoughtful and dedicated to getting the best outcome for his clients. On the eve of activating our listing, I called him and suggested that we drop the asking price by $25,000. Any other real estate agent would have readily accepted the suggestion, but Brad talked me down, calmed me and said to stick with the higher price...the apartment sold in less than 5 days for over the asking price. Brad is an absolute professional - he managed the entire process seamlessly from the listing photos (which were incredible) to the co-op board package to closing logistics. I cannot recommend Brad Bateman enough - he is truly exceptional."
-Chris & Lindsey G.
"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.
"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.
"One of the mantras that my fiancé and I have, are that if every person was good at what they do, we would live in a much more efficient and effective world. Through our process of buying property in Brooklyn, Brad was more than good, he was exceptional. Timely, professional and knows how to work a deal; that is Brad." - Jackie M. & Andrew L.
"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.
"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
"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.
"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.

"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.
