Three seasoned professionals, three specialties, a single focus

There is little doubt that New York is the ultimate real estate market of opportunity. In fact, for many buyers and sellers, New York provided value no matter where a purchaser invested or regardless of what the seller had previously paid. Phrases like “property values in New York only go in one direction…UP,” rolled off the lips of buyers, sellers, agents and advisors.

That was then. The 2018 market is highly segmented and complex. A one-size-fits-all approach will no longer achieve optimum value. Success is no longer measured only by the final price per square foot paid or received. Terms, timing and longterm goals are now essential elements of the equation.

Questions to consider: Did you achieve each specific need and want as outlined at the start of your endeavor? Is there financial success now and have you been positioned for equal or greater success in the future? Were you represented with care and professionalism? Did you respect your Real Estate advisor more when the transaction closed than when you began?

Three industry experts with decades of experience in the New York City real estate marketplace make up the Appel-Caraccioli Team. From Harlem to the Hamilton Heights, from The Flatiron to Fort Greene, Jeffrey Appel, John Caraccioli, and Harlan Simon have delivered optimum value and premier service to literally hundreds of successful individuals who call New York home for themselves, their family, or their business.

The Appel-Caraccioli Team is sized to provide personal service, never passing our clients down the line after they sign. While we are collaborative, there is no task too trivial for any one of us to take on personally. We know and respect that it is your asset you have entrusted in us. When you hire our team, you will never feel like just another number in New York's ultimate numbers game.
