You might say that Jacques Ambron has real estate running through his veins. The son of Madeleine Ambron, one of the most respected and successful agents in Forest Hills, Jacques has followed in a tradition of excellence and integrity. He started his real estate career in lower Manhattan selling co-ops in the early days of co-op conversions. He then moved his focus to Forest Hills where he continued his sales career selling co-ops and homes in exclusive Forest Hills Gardens, Forest Hills, Rego Park, Kew Gardens and surrounding areas. He was also a very successful rental agent for many major landlords. Jacques continued to expand his knowledge and experience as the sales director for a major New York city co-op/condo conversion firm, where he oversaw the conversion of thousands of units around New York City and Westchester. Finally, Jacques ran Madeleine Realty, one of the top independent firms in Forest Hills as broker/owner, where he not only oversaw daily operations of the office and its agents, but successfully sold hundreds of co-ops, condos and houses over the course of 25 years. In July 2017, Madeleine Realty joined forces with Halstead in order to increase marketing strength and to better serve its clients.

Jacques reputation and philosophy is that of professionalism, integrity, and excellence. Above all, he believes that it is his job not only to listen, but to fulfill his clients’ real estate needs while providing a comfortable and happy experience. Jacques has gained extensive knowledge of Real Estate through his professional designations including Certified Real Estate Broker Manager, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, and Certified Buyers Representative.

In his spare time, Jacques is an avid cook, rides bicycles, and spends time with his Wife and young daughter. Jacques is also passionate about giving back to the community. He served as an auxiliary police officer until he retired as a sergeant with several commendations, and currently takes part in charity rides to support people living with MS, and initiatives to help a local community support group called Forestdale.


“I am writing this letter to describe the wonderful experience we had working with Jacques Ambron of Madeleine Realty. We were in a situation where we had to sell property from several states away so we asked a friend in New York if he knew of a good real estate broker. Our friend told us of Madeleine Realty. He said they helped another friend of his find a new home and it was a good experience. We decided to contact and met Jacques on one of our visits to the property in New York. It was a true blessing. We were immediately impressed. Jacques had done the research regarding comparables (comps) in the area and made certain we had that information before our meeting. He helped us set a reasonable selling price and guided us through the entire process of selling the property He executed a plan that had us in contract within a few weeks! The final sales price was exactly our asking price which is truly amazing in this present economy.
“We were very fortunate to have Jacques help us with the sale of our house. His professionalism, knowledge and expertise are top notch. He was willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the property was secure during several storms in New York City. We highly recommend Jacques … without reservation to anyone looking to hire a real estate broker.” – Mark G.
“Jacques did a great job, always available to answers questions and gave us good advice, excellent follow up. He made our buying experience easier than expected. We would highly recommend Jacques for either selling or buying a property.” - Alfonso R.
