"I met Vasilis when he was showing a condo in the Astoria Heights area. He was extremely knowledgeable and informative of the condominiums in that area and the neighborhood overall. He wasn't pushy and didn't automatically question me on my financials like some other realtors tend to do. I had previously been dismissed by more than a few realtors because I look young but thankfully didn't experience that with him at all. I didn't wind up purchasing that condo but that first meeting made me think of him when I was ready to purchase. He moved quickly when I saw a condo I wanted to make an offer on and likely helped me beat out other buyers. He also navigated some pretty interesting interactions with the seller's broker like a true professional. As a first-time home buyer, he made an overwhelming experience much more bearable. Vasilis is a true proponent for his clients and I could not recommend him enough." - Natalie.

We couldn't recommend him more and feel grateful for all of his assistance. Thanks, Vasilis for helping us sell our Astoria home." - Jessica G.

You can't go wrong working with Vasilis." - Gina M.

When my husband and I decided to sell we knew Vasilis had to be the person to call, especially during these difficult times. You can tell he really, he cared throughout the process.

He was recommended to me as an agent who was highly skilled, very supportive, and so accessible to answer any questions. Vasilis was all these things and determined to find a buyer that would be a good match for our property. His determination to sell our apartment was so successful that we and the buyer were pleased with this sale.

“Vasilis hit it out of the park! Our neighbor, another real estate agent living in a similar apartment told us what he could sell our apartment for. We were disappointed and turned to Vasilis to get another opinion. Vasilis’s brought energy, optimism, a photographer, a slew of web-based technology, and his A game. We chose him, took his advice and made some minor recommended changes, and our apartment looked great! Almost hated to move. We got offers almost immediately. COVID arrived and, understandably, our original buyer backed out. We were extremely impressed with Vasilis responsiveness and the constant feedback provided through the web portal throughout the whole process. We still felt we made the right decision even with COVID looming in the background. More important! He came through!! We sold it, in the middle of a pandemic, AND for $50 thousand more than what our neighbor told us we could get! GOING WITH Vasilis was a smart move.” - Alvin C.
“Vasilis helped us sell our apartment. He was able to overcome all the obstacles that one could expect during this process. His attention to details gave us confidence.

His dedication to our goal was shown constantly and he knew how to encourage us even when we were not so sure about continuing with the sale. He priced the apartment correctly and when the right offer came, he knew how to negotiate the price to make the deal happen. The bank's appraisal mach 100% the amount we had agreed with the buyers.” - Manolonyc.

He sold my apartment by the second viewing on the first day of showing. He is a reasonable and very realistic negotiator bc he looks at what both sides are looking for and is able to find a middle ground where both are satisfied with the outcome. I initially purchased my place from Vasilis that is how we met and 11 years later he sold it. He earned every penny of his commission. That is why people keep coming back to him bc they trust him.” - Emercedez
"Vasilis helped me purchase my new home and I’m so glad he did. As a first-time home buyer, I was nervous and unsure of what the process was like. I had interactions with other brokers and agents and felt as if they didn’t understand my needs or what I was looking for. Vasilis was the opposite, he heard me out and basically explained everything to me in a simple matter. He made my home buying experience as stress free as possible and for that I am forever grateful. I would definitely recommend him and trust me he will not let you down. Thank you, Vasilis!” - Zucer

“Vasilis helped me sell my co-op in Jackson Heights, and we couldn't have been happier that we chose him as our agent. Starting from our initial interview together, it was clear he was an excellent communicator, a good listener, and a consummate professional. This was our first time selling a home and we appreciated his transparency and patience in explaining and guiding us through every step in the process. He used a range of relevant strategies for marketing the home, coordinated an expert photographer who took great photos, and got our listing into Curbed Magazine. We found qualified buyers vetted by Vasilis, and went under contract with them right before the COVID-19 pandemic. Every step of the way, during all of the uncertainty of the crisis, Vasilis was proactive, committed to our sale, and facilitated so many variables with a warm, calm attitude.

“Vasilis is amazing!! He made the daunting task of purchasing a coop in NYC seem relatively simple. From the very first encounter with him I knew that he was very knowledgeable, and he explained all the things that needed to be in place even before I began looking at apartments. After I made an offer on a coop, he pretty much took care of everything. He and his secretary were on top of everything, there was never an instance of a forgotten detail. I remember the day of the closing, my lawyer said to me: "this is my first time working with Vasilis, and I have to say the guy is thorough." So true. Vasilis is HIGHLY recommended.” - Casast
"Vasilis was our agent that sold our coop in Jackson Heights. Not only was he a knowledgeable agent that understood the market, but also how to navigate the coop board to be more efficient when finding a qualified buyer. Aside from being an experience professional, he cares about his clients and treats them like a good friend. For example, after we moved out of our coop (we moved quickly before we sold), we had a package shipped to our old place by mistake. Not having anyone else that could check to see if the package was delivered, we called Vasilis and he immediately went over to check that day. Once he found our package, he sent it to us immediately. To us, this speaks volumes about who he is as a person. Moving and selling property is a very stressful process, but having Vasilis on our side helped alleviate many of the challenges. You are in good hands with Vasilis and I highly recommend him to sell your home!” - Michael C.

He was always available to answer questions, chat on the phone etc. I asked to see the property a few times and he was always willing to accommodate. Purchasing a co-op has an extra amount of layers/approvals and he is a pro. He knew just what to do, was extremely knowledgeable with the process and that board in particular. He made the whole process seamless. He is also extremely amiable, funny, easy going and professional. I would recommend Vasilis in a heartbeat to anyone looking for an agent to buy or sell. When I'm ready to sell, he will be the first person I call.” - Melissa A.

I would recommend Vasilis to any friend or family member looking to buy in Queens.” - Sruthi V.

"Vasilis is the best agent we’ve met by far! He helped us sell our one-bedroom coop apartment at top price and found a buyer in less than a month, then he worked very promptly to make sure the process ran as smooth and as far as possible until the closing date without us having to do a thing. He was extremely professional and very patient, walking us through the process of our first sale.

For the apartment listing, he posted the advertising on many sites and hired a professional photographer to stage and take beautiful pictures of the apartment. He screened all potential buyers to ensure we had the right candidate, with the proper financials to obtain the coop board approval without any issues. He was also very thorough reviewing all documentation needed for the coop to avoid any delays in the process. The building managers also spoke very well about Vasilis telling us it was a pleasure to work with him. We were extremely happy with his services and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a sales agent as well as work with him again in the future when the time comes for us to do our next move.” - Sachi R.
“Vasilis helped us get our buyer within less than a week of listing and helped us sell within months, even despite a notoriously strict and difficult coop board! I called Vasilis on a Monday and on Friday, he had our buyer in to see the apartment! HE GETS RESULTS, PERIOD. I'm so thankful I never had to have strangers trudging through my apartment at an Open House and never had to jump through hoops to get our place sold. When the buyer came to see the apartment, he called attention to the selling points and features of the home, and we didn't have to do a thing. He dealt with the board, the management company, and everyone involved to make this process as smooth and seamless as possible. He always kept us informed as to what was going on and is an excellent communicator. Vasilis goes above and beyond to make sure every T is crossed and I is dotted. He's simply a professional in every sense of the word and is exceptional at what he does! I recommend Vasilis to the highest degree possible and urge you to call him if you want your home sale to happen fast and to go right.” - Elyse R.

A nice and safe neighborhood which Vasilis has immense knowledge of the local market. He guided us through every step of the buying process, prepared us for interview with the co-op board, and handled issues (e.g., mold removal) that have risen prior to closing. He also offered expert advice and helpful tips on home improvement since the unit needs extensive renovation. He made every effort to meet our buying needs and genuinely interested in assuring that we are satisfied. He was always available to meet with us and respond to our calls, emails, and texts regardless of the time of day or night. He is always pleasant and a true professional in every way. Vasilis is terrific and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.” - Celia U.
“Vasilis helped me buy and then sell my 1-bedroom apartment. He was more knowledgeable and on top of things than my own lawyer, and even the other party's group of professionals. And everyone in the area knows him in a positive light. Cool-mannered, patient, and genuine, he has helped me during a difficult personal time, exacerbated by the stress/unexpected moments that come up during the homebuying/selling process. You'll never feel like just a number to Vasilis. He takes everyone's situation as seriously as if it were him buying or selling! I recommend him 100% to anyone, as it will feel like you have someone backing you all the way. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and hope to call you again soon under better circumstances!” - Ana E.
