A regular member of the well-respected Producer’s Council (top 5% of the firm), Sapphire Club, and 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.

In addition to his column in the Daily News, Ari is regularly quoted in the press and is frequently called on to lecture on industry matters including panels for Chase, CitiBank, Ivy League clubs, and REBNY. Recent press contributor and listing features include: Wall Street Journal, New York Times, New York Post, Daily News, The Real Deal, CityBiz, Curbed, Brick Underground, DNAInfo, Realtor and Brownstoner.

Client testimonials:

“Ari and his team are the consummate professionals in the real estate brokerage industry. Ari is the best real estate broker we have ever come across in our fifteen years of renting/buying in NYC and London. He is very responsive (within minutes, even when on vacation!) and has relevant marketing information and comps on properties at his fingertips. Ari did a thorough analysis for us on the local property market which sold us on working with him. Ari provided Halstead's top services (video tour, etc.) for our listing which, in our opinion, led to healthy interest in our condo and helped to have very short sales cycle (under 1 month to an offer over list price).” – G.B. and N.P., sellers
"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 another 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." – C.N., buyer and seller
"We had a terrific experience with Ari and his team who helped us with the sale of our 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 apartment within days of our first open house and ultimately accepted an offer that was well above our asking price!" – B.U. and K.L., sellers
"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 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
"Ari Harkov brings to the table a broad set of skills: attention to detail, analytical abilities, a warm and friendly personality, patience, and a genuine willingness to assist his clients at all times. As a demanding customer, I found that Ari promptly responded to my requests at all times throughout the process. I was looking for a broker who set himself apart from the crowd. Searching for my first co-op and unfamiliar with the mechanics of the process, Ari was eager to educate me and promptly responded to all my questions. Working with him led to my closing at a price roughly 20% below where similar units were offered at that time." – S.A., buyer
“Ari and his team helped my husband and I locate a home in a neighborhood that fit our needs, which by no means was easy. We were moving in together, with plans for children, while also wanting a place in a neighborhood that was 'off the beaten track’. He stuck with us for a number of months as we explored all aspects of Brooklyn. He gave us his honest and expert opinion of each neighborhood and the listing we were considering, including his opinion on a fair price. Once we closed in on a home, his negotiation skills with the other side were excellent, but not offensive. Indeed, once, while my husband and I were looking at a property in Carroll Gardens, we mentioned Ari's name to the broker. He stopped, said yes he knows of him and added that Ari is well respected within the industry. (We were not surprised.) When we finally found our dream home (a lovely limestone in Prospect Lefferts Gardens), I used his team to sell my apartment in Brooklyn Heights. My place went into contract easily. The coop board was the last hurdle. Ari's team presented the package to the board in a clear way. I was on the board when I lived there, and knew how frustrating it could be when a package came unbounded, sometimes in a bag. Instead of having to sift through 50+ pages of unbounded documents, the document was bounded and labelled clearly, with a summary page highlighting key points. The board was able to find answers to their questions and came to a decision on the candidate very quickly. All in all, Ari and his team made what is often a difficult, anxiety-ridden process that much easier to manage. I'm glad I found them!” – B.A.B. & M.Y., buyers and sellers
“Having interacted with dozens of agents over the years, I can say without a doubt that Ari is the most thoughtful and professional agent I have encountered. He is an excellent communicator, has a respectful personal style, and possesses a deep command of the broader NYC real estate market and the intricate details of the properties he represents. I would recommend him without hesitation." –B.F., buyer
“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.” – E.G. & S.G., buyers
“Ari represented us on both the sell and buy side and we couldn't recommend him more highly. He was always ready with exhaustive information and sound analysis when we asked for it and yet gave us plenty of space to make our own decisions. Ari is a very smart, sober negotiator and helped us navigate all the tricky timing issues of buy, sell and renovation-to-move-in dates smoothly. Ultimately, he made what can be a very harrowing process pain free, and we daresay — even fun.” – B.T. & M.G., buyers and sellers
“My husband and I sold our apartment with Ari during a very challenging time. Besides the housing market being in a tough spot, we were also expecting our first child. Ari was a dream to work with during this time. I cannot imagine working with anyone else. He made the process effortless! We trusted Ari's professional advice, which made us feel very comfortable in our decisions, and his attention to detail, follow up, and work ethic were all wonderful. He was never pushy, and in fact he actually was very calming and informative. It would be a pleasure to recommend him to others and to work with him again!” – M.L. & N.L., sellers
“We first met Ari years ago at an open house and immediately liked him. His abundant knowledge of NYC real estate and general professionalism were evident right from the start. We kept an eye on the market, randomly emailing him with questions over the years and he was always happy to help. When we finally decided to buy, he was our first call! As first time home buyers, Ari was able to teach us the ins and outs of buying in Manhattan. We felt confident in negotiations knowing that one of the best in the business was representing us. Now that we are settled in our new home, we would not hesitate to refer Ari to our closest friends and family.” – B.G. & S.T., buyers
