"Ante rocks! We left our contact on some random site when we were thinking about moving and now many years later we have a friend who happens to be an awesome real estate agent. From our first meeting we knew Ante would be the perfect agent. It's so rewarding when somebody you're dealing with listens to you and gets what you're after. Although we come from different universes, Ante's personality meshes really well with ours. Most importantly for us, he's straightforward and super trustworthy. We're totally comfortable having Ante represent us. He definitely has a lot of confidence and style but don't let that scare you - he's down to earth, caring and sensitive too. He’s persistent and gets things done for us.

Ante sold our townhouse in early 2015 and we went into contract for a new construction condo at the same time. Our dream condo finished construction and we closed this week. For three long years Ante stood by us, arguing to get us in to see the progress of our unit and stay connected to the project, providing practical and moral support. Highly recommended indeed!" - Brian R. (Sold townhouse, bought 2 luxury condos, and rented through us)

“Ante was very wonderful to work with for all my interactions with him (renting, selling & buying). He is extremely responsive at all times and is a fountain of knowledge and suggestions, especially as he takes the time to understand your particular needs and makes sure to give you choices that match. He is also an interesting person to know and talk to which is the icing on the cake of his excellent work.” -Darius B. 2017
"Ante helped my wife and I to find our perfect UWS apartment. It took us six months, and it’s Ante’s personality that made the process as enjoyable as it can be. As anyone would guess, a lot of things change in 6 months. Your appetite changes, your preferences change, market changes. And Ante took all these changes for granted. He is not your stereotypical real estate agent with pressure, with those ‘if I were you...’ or ‘this apartment will not last.’ Quite the opposite: he was always on our side. I had enough time to think about it and I know why: because he is genuinely enjoying his work. It is not bored with you as a client, he does not want to get rid of you. He was listening, listening and listening. Echoing our own opinions, verbatim and giving us more and more precise choices. Highly recommend to anyone!" - Victor
“Ante was quite simply outstanding at his job and I knew right from the get go we would find our ideal apartment. His patience, personality and knowledge of buildings and areas was very impressive. He was always quick to respond to communications via email, text and phone call. Ante is 100% genuine, he knows his stuff, he is a great guy and was a pleasure to work with. If we were to ever move again I will not hesitate to use him again and cannot recommend him enough!” – Jose
“We worked with Ante over are period of 6 weeks. I think any other realtor would have given up and me weeks before. I was picky, it was my wife’s idea to move, I hated the idea of the hassle of actually finding somewhere else to live. That’s my weakness you see, get stuck in a rut, go to work and go home thinking I actually liked the apartment I was renting. Ante showed my wife over 40 places. Some she liked, some not so much. But his patience was undeniably impressive to say the least. My idea of the pushy sales guy quickly was gone. His professionalism was flawless, his work ethic second to none. I would have no hesitation recommending Ante to anyone who needs a trustworthy individual who will act in their best interests, to find the place they really would like to live. Thank you Ante.” - Ian W.
“Dear Ante, Diana and I would like to thank you for your outstanding service. Throughout the search and the approval process, you have been extremely helpful and professional. We were impressed with your responsiveness (no email went unanswered for more than a minute), your patience, your friendliness and your positive attitude. You provided us with helpful advice and made sure that the application process went smoothly. We will recommend you warmly to our friends and colleagues. Thank you again for your wonderful service. Best regards.” - Dietmar and Diana
“I have worked with him twice, he’s awesome, and the listing he has is awesome too, recommended. 5 Star rating.” - Kenneth
