Client Testimonials     

★★★★★
Working with Michael was incredible. 

As a first-time home buyer, there was a lot I didn't know about the process. Michael was patient, always available, and knowledgeable. This was critical given the unique market conditions we are currently in. 

Michael went above and beyond. He negotiated a great deal for me - in fact, he got my final closing price lower than my initial offer! That's unheard of. 

I couldn't be happier with my new home and I would strongly recommend Michael.

"Michael Barit is the best broker I could have asked for! I found an amazing apartment with everything on my wish list at a time when it seemed like every apartment was leaving the market as soon as it was listed. Time was of the essence and as soon as I reached out to him, Michael showed me that he was just as eager to get me into the unit as I was. The process was quick and painless which I know isn’t always the case in the world of New York real estate. I knew that I owed it to Michael’s knowledge of the process and attention to my timeline. I’d absolutely work with Michael again and I’d recommend him to anyone looking for a broker."

"Michael was my agent when I recently purchased my first apartment. I initially reached out to him through a family connection as I had an extremely tight timeline for finding and closing on a property. Michael was great about explaining the purchasing process and providing reliable sources for further information. I bought my apartment sight-unseen and Michael played a vital role in touring properties for me. I had to put a lot of trust in him and he did not let me down! He found me a fabulous apartment that had everything on my wishlist and we were able to close within my timeline and budget. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, especially for a first-time homeowner."

"From start to finish, he was an absolute joy to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the area I was looking in and was always available to meet me for open houses. He made me feel like I was his most important client and ended up finding me my dream apartment. When it came time to sell that apartment, I knew just the person to call. Justin and Mike were always timely, held multiple showings, and negotiated a fantastic deal for me that I couldn't be happier with. The whole process was stress free and I would highly recommend Justin and Mike to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!"

"We started with another agent and we didn’t feel this person was as truthful as they could have been. Michael was recommend to us and what we appreciated about him was his attention to details.  

When we did find our home, at the inspection he went to each room and personally tested all the appliances, faucets, doors and windows which in the end helped us save time, aggravation and costs of fixing all the windows.  

He works with a great team and I would recommend them and Michael to future buyers."
