" Working with Michael was such a wonderful experience. As someone who came into the home buying process with zero experience and very little information, he immediately put me at ease. He's so warm, friendly, and truly wants the best for everyone he works with. He's also so knowledgeable and anticipated every question I had, as well as every question I didn't know enough to even have yet. Being a first time home buyer is so overwhelming, especially in New York City, but working with Michael made me feel like it was something that I could actually do." - Wendy

"Michael was amazing. I had recently arrived in New York and I had to find a place to live in a short amount of time. Upon our first conversation, he was a great listener and immediately understood what I needed. Very quickly, Michael put together some tours of potential options. Tours were a lot of fun and in the first one, he showed what I wanted. Michael's guidance was priceless. He knows how important it is to put love in everything we do. Always enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and proactive, he made me feel very welcome to New York. I look forward to working with him again on my next move. " - Christian

He made working with the building representatives a breeze and brought things to my attention that I was unaware of even asking. He is professional, perceptive and personable. What could have been a stressful and disappointing experience was effortless and amazing." - Kelly

"We have been working with Michael Bhagwandin for NYC investment condo since spring of 2019. Michael demonstrated exceptional market knowledge and an intuitive sense of his client tastes and preferences. He found us the right apartments that met our criteria and over a period of a few weekshelped us with the right real estate lawyer, insurance broker managed the board review process andwithin two months. He was very open, transparent, and kept us apprised every step of the way. All parties were mutually satisfied. We closed swiftly. Michael was always available to answer questions. He is extremely honest, upfront, and very communicative. Michael found the right tenant within a month and navigated the entire process with the building management. Then covid came. Our tenant considered leaving NYC, Michael intervened, and we managed to keep the tenant while offering some mutually amenable modification for the tenant to remain in the unit. We are now embarking on a new tenant nearly post pandemic and within a month have secured another exceptional tenant as we turn the corner out of the pandemic. Thank you, Michael. We will continue to work with Michael as we expand our interest into another apartment in NYC." - Andy K.

Not only would we use Michael again and recommend him, he’s become a very good friend." - Bryne & Leanne

Looking forward to working with Michael again!" - Beverly

"Very positive experience working with Michael - despite the struggles of renting an apartment during the peak of the COVID NYC shutdown, he managed to get it done! He hustled to first improve the listing of my unit, and then to ensure that we had a steady stream of prospects viewing the apartment. He kept me informed every step of the way, and gave me constant feedback on pricing adjustments and market trends. After failing to rent it myself for several months, super happy I connected with Michael and was able to get it rented in less than a month!" - Jeff

"We had a terrific experience working with Michael to purchase a condo in the East Village. We are based in California and looking to purchase during a pandemic, so it was at times a complicated process but Michael was there to guide us every step of the way. His local knowledge of different lower Manhattan neighborhoods and condo boards was particularly helpful, as we had never purchased real estate in NYC before." - Mina

"After two months of failed attempts to rent my 1 bedroom on my own during the COVID market difficulties I decided to hire Micheal to help me. Long story short, he succeeded, and I was happy with the overall experience. He was providing insight and updates at every step. Particularly useful were the insights about the ever evolving market he was able to gather from the feedback of prospective tenants, who were simultaneously shopping around. This led us to review the rental approach, and ultimately rent the apartment. I found Michael to be a proactive, dynamic and engaging agent and a great overall guy to boot." - Gregor

"We are first time home owners and Michael came at the recommendation of a friend. We actually spoke with a few other brokers before meeting Michael but he’s by far the most enthusiastic, responsive and easy to work with broker. He took the time to educate us on the market and showed us different neighborhoods and made the buying process smooth and even fun! We would highly recommend Michael to any of our friends. Thanks for helping us find a new home!" - Cecily & Michael

"Michael is a great friend and agent. After 37 years in the apartment, it was time to move on. Michael gave good advice on the market, comps and what we could expect going into a showing and sale. He held our hand and guided us the whole way. The final offer we got was in large part due to Michael's expertise. I will work with him again when we decide to move forward on buying another apartment. Meanwhile he keeps tempting me with new options!! " - Randy F

"First, my wife and I can not say enough good things about Michael. I know that sounds too good to be true, however it's more than true. From the first time we interacted with Michael, a year prior to really pursuing our search for our first home, he was engaged, responsive, professional, and observant. All qualities we wanted in a broker, he had, and then some. Once we started really pursuing, he was relentless and allowed us to be creative versus just pushing us in a direction....which eventually got us to where he thought we would end up. Going through the experience of purchasing a new home (again first time) with Michael was priceless. It left us with the knowledge needed to make a purchase again, and of course, Michael would be right there with us! " - Marissa & Nick

"Great experience, works hard, smart , just the right amount of sell.Would highly recommend" - Anthony A

"Michael Baghwandin is the most professional person I have ever worked with…. he has such a strong understanding of the real estate market and the needs of his client….he is so accommodating and most of all one of the nicest people I have ever met. The sale of our home was seamless and most of all stress free " - Kathy V
