What The Clients Are Saying About Edward Liao:
"After going through different searches with a few brokers over several months, I was fortunate to finally get to work with Edward Liao. He listened to exactly what I needed and worked hard with patience and diligence to find me my current apartment. Ed was with me every step of the way and watched out for my interest, making sure that I closed the deal within the time frame that I had set. He continued to be of great help with sound advice well after I had moved into the property. I am so glad to have known him and I strongly recommend him as a decent and highly professional broker." - Samah J."I had the pleasure of working with Ed when I decided to purchase my first home. Unlike most agents I encountered in the past, he was always realistic about setting expectations. He was also incredibly proficient and timely in getting me new listings and scheduling open houses. Most of all he always valued my opinions, and was candid about his own." - Vikram J.“I can't say enough positive things about Edward Liao as a real estate agent. I was a first-time buyer in the New York area and his patient, thorough explanations of the local market put me at ease, as well as prepared me for the ups and downs of the process. Edward was attentive to my budget and apartment requirements, while proactively offering new alternatives that stayed within these constraints. Last week I moved into my new home and will be grateful to Edward each time I walk through the door.” - Vincent M."Edward, along with his partner Susan Rein, made the process of selling an apartment smooth and complication-free. Multiple open houses were necessary to find a great buyer for the property, and Ed went above and beyond to complete the transaction. Ed was very responsive and diligent about following up with Board members or the Managing Agent with any issues. I wholeheartedly recommend him if you are buying or selling real estate in New York City." - David C., Esq.I have known Ed for 25 years but only recently worked with him on finding an apartment. From the moment I contacted him, he was there with advice, guidance, and a number of good listings. He worked within my parameters of price and location. And when the right apartment presented itself—in a building he’d found, an appointment he’d set up—he guided me through the process from making the offer to mortgage approval to a pleasant and efficient closing. Ed returned my calls, answered my questions, and helped me through the maze of paperwork. I was reassured by his knowledge and experience. I’ve got a terrific new apartment now, thanks in large measure to Ed’s help. I recommend him highly. – Joanne M.
