About Adam

Through his dedication to superior client service and keen business sense, Adam wants to earn business. A native Melbournian from Australia, Adam worked in the hospitality industry for many years, while managing some of his hometown’s most popular bars. Gifted with an entrepreneurial spirit, Adam achieved one of his life’s goals when he opened a bar of his own. This endeavor allowed Adam to interact with a diverse clientele – and taught him valuable skills including accounting, marketing and time management, as well as how to be an effective negotiator.

He explains that the skills he acquires from starting such a big venture are priceless in any field. He is well-prepared to tackle any problem with honesty and persistence. Hospitality is something he takes seriously, and he will go the extra mile to help clients make smart real estate decisions. Adam knows that real estate is more than just a numbers game - it's a science. A combination of up-to-the-minute market data, historical knowledge of local trends, and a true understanding of how to turn these insights into action allow Adam to ensure an optimal result for buyers, sellers and renters alike.

For owners, Adam’s use of strategic email, online and direct mail advertising - coupled with his connection to a powerful network of active home buyers - ensures that the right audiences see his client’s property and take action. As for renters and buyers, his own move from halfway around the globe helps Adam understand the magnitude and excitement of house hunting in New York City.

Having been a resident of multiple areas, Adam is well-versed in all Manhattan neighborhoods. He is married to a local New Yorker and loves good coffee, as well as exploring new bars, restaurants - and all his adopted hometown has to offer. Allow him to put his industry experience, market knowledge, and enterprising spirit to work for his clients.

Client Testimonials

"Adam is fantastic, responsive, and an expert in his field. He helped me find and negotiate a great price for a beautiful NYC apartment that I now get to call home. Being a first-time home buyer, not only did Adam show me apartments with the components I was looking for but also helped guide me through the complex real estate market of NYC. He was transparent to what he thought a fair price for each apartment would be and willing to answer all of my questions in a timely fashion. From working with Adam, it is clear he is looking out for the best interests of his clients. The apartment I finally settled on is perfect and I would definitely work with Adam again!" - Melanie

"Adam helped my husband and I purchase our dream apartment after 4 months of active searching and 3 long months of the co-op application process. Adam is extremely pleasant to work with, a very tough negotiator, and went out of his way to ensure the complicated process was as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to buy in New York.
Our goal was to not only find an apartment that fits our needs in terms of location/layout/size but one that is of great value. To our surprise it was very tough to find an agent who “got it”, they either didn’t listen or were “pushing" units that they think made sense instead of units that we actually wanted. Adam on the other hand, not only listened to and completely understood our preferences but was also able to make great suggestions as to places to look at and things to watch out for.
During the offer/bid process, Adam did very detailed comp analysis to determine whether the listing was over or undervalued, and had an amazing sense/intuition of where the buyer could go to plan our bid accordingly. We ended up getting an amazing deal for a place we’ve been eyeing for almost a year.
All in all, you can’t go wrong working with Adam!
