About Ross

"My goal is to commit the time and knowledge needed to help you navigate this great city’s real estate market with the utmost levels of integrity and honesty."

Ross is passionate about the New York real estate market. He thrives on keeping up to date on market trends locally and globally, which he proactively shares with everyone through his periodic "Big Apple Bites" newsletter. This detailed knowledge of the market and memory for details help him provide you the support and insight you'll need to find the ideal home and strike the best deal. Recognizing this ability, in October 2015 the Real Estate Board of New York awarded Ross their 2015 Deal of the Year award (1st Place, Residential Sales), when they honored 15 of New York City's outstanding residential dealmakers at their charity and awards gala. Each year, REBNY's Residential Board of Directors combs through countless nominations to select the most impressive deals amongst the city's resales, new development sales, and rental transactions. Winners of this award show creativity and ingenuity in overcoming unique obstacles to make a successful transaction.

An experienced negotiator with a solid background in finance, Ross is just as focused on the personal side of any real estate transaction. After graduating from Wesleyan and Fordham Universities with his B.A. and M.A., respectively, Ross worked at a number of major financial institutions in increasingly responsible roles but eventually he had to give in to the calling of a career in real estate a few years ago. His strong financial knowledge and negotiating experience now stand him in good stead to help you through your transaction. Recognizing that buying or selling an apartment is a major decision for all of us, Ross aims to help you through the process in a collaborative and communicative partnership, listening to your needs and working on your schedule. A long term New York transplant and the owner of an apartment in Chelsea, he's keenly aware of the effort and the often-involved process that goes into buying or selling your property. But then, he's equally aware of just what a great city New York is, and the pleasures of living here.

Ross is highly dedicated, proactive, reliable and organized, and focused on providing you an honest sounding board and steady guide as you buy, sell or rent in New York City. Ross is an active art enthusiast and a board member of Participant Gallery, a non-profit art space in the Lower East Side.


"Ross was incredible. I came to New York on a transfer visa which meant that renting a flat would be less straightforward than for US citizens. Ross understood exactly what I was looking for, and found me the flat of my dreams in 2 days, that was off the beaten track. Not only that, but he managed to overcome all the hurdles of a foreigner's application. All this with kindness, empathy, generosity and professionalism. My arrival in NYC was transformed thanks to this partnership. I can only recommend Ross warmly!" - Alix D.

"Ross was immensely helpful during the entire home-buying process. He let me know what questions I should be asking and what issues might come up during the process and really steered the transaction well. Overall an exemplary job!" - Thomas D.

"Ross was amazing. It was my first time renting an apartment in New York and he patiently walked to through the entire process. He always said "we are in this together" and this is exactly the way I felt. His goal is to find the perfect apartment for his clients - in terms of size, budget and neighborhood. Apartment hunting in New York can be overwhelming, - Ross reduced my stress level by at least 90% the minute I talked to him. I can only recommend working with Ross!" - Dunja G.

"Working with Ross was a breath of fresh air! He's unlike any other broker Ive met (which is many) - he truly cares about what you want, is proactive and thoughtful in so many ways. He negotiated well on my behalf and helped give great advice. I have recommended Ross to friends and will continue to do so!" - Melissa N.

"I had a really hard time looking for apartments in the city and was so thankful to have found Ross. My lease was expiring soon and I had to find a new apartment in a very short period of time. Ross helped me feel calm by asking me questions to better get a sense of what I was looking for and assuring me that we would find something before my lease ended. He was very patient (even though I am very picky) and was able to pick out the things that mattered to me most. He found me the perfect apartment very quickly and was available throughout the application process, he even helped me after I signed my lease by providing recommendations for movers, etc. He made the whole hectic process of house hunting in NYC a breeze!" - Ratika G.
