"From the initial meeting to the end result Richard was stellar. He not only guided us through the process, he was committed and steadfast as if it were his own home. That speaks volumes as selling as well as buying is a very emotional journey. Richard’s knowledge and diligence proved to be a winning combination and we could not recommend him higher. We are picky and very connected to home, that said he produced and we are thrilled with the results. He’s one of a kind and whomever decides to work with him, consider yourself very fortunate."

"Richard Zwerling is simply the best real estate agent in Manhattan. He provides unparalleled personal attention and makes sure your listings get the attention and showings that other agents simply can’t get. We used him for two properties we owned, and both were under contract in no time at all at a better price than we could have imagined."
"After unsuccessfully trying to sell my NYC co-op on my own, I hired Richard.
Richard worked with me to stage and price the apartment appropriately in order to garner the most interest. This resulted in a bidding war after the property was on the market for one week and ended with the sale of the apartment above the asking price.
Richard also spent time working with myself and my partner to find and purchase a new apartment. We were stunned by his negotiating tactics! Richard helped prepare an outstanding co-op board package that was instrumental in our being approved by the board.
Richard is diligent, knowledgeable, personable and patient. He took the time to advise us on properties, co-op boards and all things related to our sale and purchase which helped inform us and guide us to make the best the decisions.
We are more than happy with Richard’s work and love our new home. We would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to sell or purchase a home in New York City."
"Richard is like a machine that never stops running. He achieved more than I could have ever hoped for…Thank you, Richard! Our jobs were taking us overseas and my wife and I needed to sell our Manhattan loft quickly. We met with countless brokers whom provided every pitch in the book. Richard gave it to us straight, said he’d get this done and prior to our property going live, Richard called me to say, “we are done”. He got us an all cash offer way over the asking price and then started a bidding war! Richard’s is inspiring and I highly recommend him."

After attempting to sell my apartment on my own, I hired Richard and within a weeks time he got me over my asking price in addition to negotiating an amazing deal on my new home purchase! Richard's follow through is above and beyond. He responds quickly (sometimes before I even hear the phone ring) and always with an upbeat attitude. I would highly recommend Richard as the Best NY broker! You ask and he will listen and find you the perfect home. I would be more than happy to answer any specific question regarding his work.
