John is a seasoned real estate broker who specializes in the purchase and sale of Manhattan apartments. He has lived in New York since 1972 and has served on his co-op’s board of directors for 22 years. Originally from Long Island, he graduated from Hamilton College and then worked in South America with the Peace Corps and the Ecuadorean Development Foundation helping to design and implement their micro-lending projects. Subsequently, he returned to New York and ran a manufacturing business for 31 years where he honed his sales, marketing and negotiating skills and learned the value of great customer service.

His ability to understand and achieve his real estate clients’ goals is illustrated by some their testimonials:

Thanks so much for getting me top dollar for my apartment. I really appreciated your initial strategic thinking about pricing; your advice on how to present my apartment in the best light, and your patience over the zillion details that crept up during the negotiations and preparation of the board package. My general opinion of the real estate industry is not very high, but you are in another league entirely. Your professionalism, quiet humor, and steady hand-holding made the whole process far less stressful than I thought that it would be. I’m happy to recommend you to others any time. (A.M.)
My wife and I recently closed on the purchase of an investment condo on West 51 Street. We were extremely satisfied with your broker, John Berman. We found him to be a true professional in every aspect. John really got to know us and understand what we were looking for. In every way he facilitated the process, including contacting the banks, lawyers, and property managers. He is extremely knowledgeable about Manhattan real estate and the whole purchasing sequence. He was always accessible and promptly returned all of our calls. This meant a lot to us. John was very through, always up on all issues. Even our lawyer commended John on his knowledge and perseverance. In addition to all of the above, John is a very nice and warm individual. It was a pleasure dealing with him. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to purchase residential realty in Manhattan. (B.G.)
If we do return to NYC, you will be the first I call to find us a place. And I certainly will be sure to send anyone I hear of looking for representation to you.Thank you again for your gracious manner, generous nature, expert consults, and non-pushy approach to sales. We are very glad to have met you and appreciate and respect the enormous value and expertise that makes you such a terrific person and unique professional. (J.S.)
