"I previously listed my apartment for sale at 30 West St. 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 clients’ interests first and truly takes passion in his work." - Jonathan K., investor, real estate developer
"After engaging four top brokers on the listing, I decided to go in a different direction and bring Ian Slater in on the listing. Ian took charge and in short order brought energy and focus to the property that was unprecedented. End result...a sale several months after he listed the apartment" - Frank Sciame, CEO and Founder, Sciame Construction
"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." - Rich and Brent, attorneys; Davis Polk, Skadden
"Ian sold our condo quickly and for the highest price per square foot in the building that year. Most impressive is the fact that he accomplished this in a softening market. Ian’s professionalism, market knowledge and work ethic made for a smooth and successful transaction. We recommend Ian without hesitation.
We interviewed several agents and gave the listing to Ian because he was the most knowledgeable and best prepared. Ian had conviction around the markets and ideas on how best to navigate them. As we embarked on the listing and sale process, we happily discovered that Ian is also one of the most responsive people one will ever meet. He is dedicated to and focused on his clients and the transaction. From our initial meeting until closing, Ian was readily accessible by , sms, phone and in person.
Ian has his finger on the pulse of the buyer as well as access to a deep pool of global buyers. While we were preparing the unit for showing, Ian was proactively mining his network of potential buyers. Once the unit was ready, Ian hired a professional photographer. The printed materials were full color and printed on high quality paper stock. These marketing materials presented our condo in the best possible light across multiple media channels. The results: within two weeks of the listing going live, the condo went into contract.
Ian is highly personable and a pleasure to work with. He is analytical and data driven and also possesses great intuition. He has a sense for knowing what would be most impactful to potential buyers and made suggestions that he thought would have the greatest return. He is well connected to other professionals in the real estate industry ranging from lawyers to stagers to cleaners and will help you both develop a strategy as well as execute it." - Kelly C., Investment Banker, Barclay's
"Our apartment was on and off the market for a year and a half. After our first broker failed to bring a sale, we interviewed a number of brokers, Ian Slater was among them, but we went with another broker. At the time we thought Ian was representing a higher price point and we would not get the attention those multimillion-dollar properties received. BIG MISTAKE!
The second broker was also unsuccessful, and the apartment was then taken off the market. Ian saw that and he immediately contacted us. We needed no prompting, Ian made solid, concrete and inexpensive staging suggestions, even before we signed the listing. Ian was relentless, he and his team ran an open house every weekend, followed every lead and GOT THE JOB DONE." - Sharon and Steven P., Midtown penthouse owners
"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!" - Erica Figliolia
"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." - Global Private Equity Investor
"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!" - Nina A.
