The Harkov-Lewis Team, Halstead Property

Ari Harkov has developed a strong and envious reputation in the real estate industry. As a result of his hard work and dedication at Halstead Property, Ari became one of the fastest rising agents ever seen at the company. After his first year in the business, the Real Estate Board of New York presented him with one of the most prestigious awards in the industry: the coveted Rookie of the Year Award. In addition, Crain’s New York Business recently named Ari as one of the top five residential brokers to watch under the age of 30 in New York City.

A member of the well-respected Producer’s Council, Platinum, Gold, and Silver Circles at Halstead Property, Ari offers his clients a rare degree of negotiation skills, market knowledge, customer service, and sophisticated pricing and valuation expertise. Ari is regularly quoted in the press and is called on to lecture on industry matters. He frequently teaches at Halstead and the Real Estate Board of New York.

Ari works alongside Warner Lewis, Ann Yanovsky, Brent Heine, Ashley Clark, Porter Hovey, Danielle Middleton, Louis Napoleone, Joy Jiang, and Michael Barbour, forming The Harkov Lewis Team at Halstead Property, one of the top-producing teams at the firm and in the industry. Ranked in the 250 top teams in the nation by Real Trends / Wall Street Journal, the Harkov Lewis Team specializes in luxury residential sales in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The team has represented a wide array of clientele in the sale and purchase of their homes, as well as in the leasing and sale of commercial properties throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn, including numerous professional athletes, celebrities, and business executives, as well as first-time homebuyers. The team’s extensive experience, skill set, structured and business-minded approach, and market knowledge all come together to deliver exceptional service and results that consistently exceed client expectations.

Ari holds an MBA with honors from Columbia University, a BA with honors from Vassar College, and is a part-owner in a bar/restaurant in Brooklyn.

Client testimonials:

Ari is an amazing broker. He has closed two deals for me. One of which may never have closed without his expertise. I would prefer to actually never use an other broker in any real estate transaction that I am apart of. I know that this is a bold statement, but I feel that in any profession, there are very few people that are at the top of their field, and Ari certainly is at the top." - Cedric N., buyer and seller
With Ari representing us, we recently sold our Carroll Gardens (Brooklyn) apartment at significantly above asking price. Ari is everything you want a broker to be - smart, attentive, hard-working and knowledgeable. He is also authentic and is tremendously classy to deal with. (We actually met him when we purchased this same apartment several years earlier - Ari represented the seller and he was terrific to deal with in that context as well.) We very highly recommend Ari and his entire talented team.” C.G., seller
We had a terrific experience with Ari and his team who helped us with the sale of our Brooklyn apartment. Going into the process, we were skeptical of working with NY brokers in general given our past experience in working with brokers who helped us find rental properties. Our experience with Ari and his team could not have been any more different! Throughout the process, Ari was very professional, yet warm; he understood our needs and had a great balance between sharing his opinion without coming across as too pushy. With Ari's help, we got multiple offers on our Brooklyn apartment within days of our first open house and ultimately accepted an offer that was well above our asking price!" - Benoit U. and Katelyn L., sellers
I first met Ari in connection with the purchase of an apartment in New York City. He was very knowledgeable, accommodating and flexible and showed me the apartment several times for taking measurements etc. Subsequently, Ari sold a different property for me in NYC. He was able to negotiate a price above my expectations and he managed the marketing, negotiation and administrative aspects of the transaction in a smooth and efficient way. Working with Ari was a pleasure and a learning experience on the complexities of real estate transactions. I would never think of buying or selling a property without at least consulting with Ari. In summary, he is transparent, knowledgeable, efficient and a great person to work with. Thank you Ari." - P.B., buyer & seller
Ari is a consummate professional. After having met many brokers, we knew right away when we met Ari that this was the person that we wanted to guide us through our purchase and represent us at the negotiating table. He exudes confidence and for good reason: Ari is young, bright, and extremely knowledgeable. He armed us with the information we needed to make an educated decision, afforded us room to breathe, and was available to us at every point of the way. Best of all, he negotiated a 19% price reduction on our first-choice home. We feel exceedingly confident in recommending Ari to anyone." - EG. & S.G., buyers
Ari is not your typical real estate broker with whom you feel you have to second guess everything they say. He's smart, practical, and very knowledgeable on the New York market and Williamsburg in particular, where he not only works, but also resides. He is extremely responsive and no question is too crazy. Ari was a great guide to the long and complex journey to a successful closing, and helped us generate multiple bidders on our sale, as well as negotiate down our purchase price with ease." - J.S. & C.H., buyers and sellers
There's nothing more important than partnering with a first-in-class real estate professional and organization to sell an apartment in this challenging environment. From the moment I met Ari, I knew he was going to be the perfect person to help me market my apartment to success. Ari has a keen understanding of the Williamsburg market and brought thoughtful insight to pricing and marketing strategies that paid off resulting in not just one, but several offers in less than one month's time. I highly recommend Ari to bring added value to any real estate listing in the New York City area." - D.S., seller
I was relieved to have a colleague refer me to Ari after two deals fell through. Ari brought a strong point of view on the market due to his deep knowledge of the dynamics and advised us on how to aggressively pursue a property that met all of our requirements. When Ari set our expectations on what the market was demanding and what the deal would require, we were able to close with ease. Strong client skills are rare to find and Ari is very good at setting expectations and guiding you through the rough spots. We are so grateful we found someone as grounded, strategic and intelligent as Ari is." - S.M. & G.K., buyers
Ari and Warner have represented me twice in buying a home and once in selling it. I could not recommend them too highly. On the selling side, they did an outstanding work. They priced the apartment right, produced stellar marketing material, negotiated skillfully with buyers and dealt patiently with the demands of a difficult co-op board. On the buying side, they negotiated a very fast and profitable deal on both occasions. At all times, they were sensitive to the needs of my family, extremely competent, professional, fun and never pushy. They are by far and away the best agents I have ever dealt with and I couldn't imagine working with anyone else in New York City." - I.R., seller and buyer
