Our experience Ideal Properties was very good, not fast, not hurried, just plain good. We never felt rushed. We were on the fence at first about using a buyer’s broker, but this choice was worth every penny, which is why we felt compelled to share it with the world. Lorraine from Ideal Properties did an extensive search for a coop on our behalf, and continued sending us listings she thought we could see ourselves live in. Only two of the 19 listings we’ve seen with Lorraine were not exactly on the money, which was to us very unusual since we’ve looked at a lot of coops with other brokers before Lorraine, and it didn’t seem any of them were paying any attention to what we said we had wanted. Lorraine always found time to conduct impeccable research, and never, ever stopped following up. She has never once given up on us, unlike most of her colleagues who we heard from at best once, or twice, after showings. We have just finished moving our last boxes, and just needed to get this off our chest and say it out loud: JOB WELL DONE, Lorraine!
Ideal’s brokers are very competent, professional and responsible. We should know, we worked with them over the course of three years. First, Justin from their 3rd Avenue office helped us rent an apartment in Windsor Terrace. We outgrew it. Then, Mike from Ideal’s Park Slope location helped us purchase a starter apartment in Park Slope. We outgrew it. Mike also helped us move on up to a small townhouse in Bed Stuy. Highly recommended, the entire team.
Ideal Properties has one of the friendliest group of people work for them. The group is very knowledgeable, and they made my home-buying experience, though protracted due to seller circumstances, extremely educational. They were very responsive throughout, and made me feel as if I was their only client. I highly recommend Ideal, and especially Joe Forzano
Michael Colombo was through-and-through reliable, and incredibly attentive to our wants and needs when it came to finding us the ideal (no pun intended! J) home. We trusted his opinions because he is an experienced broker, and we're happy we did: Michael found us the perfect townhouse and made our entire buying experience seem effortless. We also enjoyed working with his sales team members, they were all extremely helpful and responsive.
