I have worked with many realtors through the years. Good ones are few and far between. Milutin is above and beyond the rest by far. A true gift. He is not only an excellent realtor but also one of the kindest and most honest people I have ever met. There is no hype, no stress, no waste of your time. I've worked with Milutin on renting my apartment a couple of times and can't wait to use him to buy my next property. He will go the extra mile and is a helpful guiding hand who wants only the best for his clients. Get in touch with him. It will be the best experience. You won't be disappointed. – Karen
Milutin was a such a pleasure to work with. Buying a co-op in NYC is, no doubt, a stressful process but Milutin helped me successfully navigate the process as smoothly and quickly as possible, allowing me to find my perfect home in the West Village. He exceeded my expectations with his responsiveness to my questions at any hour and completely understood what I was looking for. I never felt pressured to buy or raise my offer. He was also able to recommend a great lawyer and mortgage banker. It’s been 8 months since I’ve purchased my apartment and Milutin still checks in to see how I’m doing. He is extremely honest, caring, and knowledgeable—I offer my unwavering recommendation for him. – Susan
In the world of NY brokers where one can experience so much game-playing and intrigue, Milutin stands out as a serious, honest, and very knowledgeable breath of fresh air. We sold our apartment in the West Village through him at a record price in our building for our unit line in 2015. This was due in part to the extensive research he did (and showed us) to come up with the perfect strategy to attract the right buyers. Milutin is courteous and professional and firm without being pushy or rude. My husband and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in NYC. – Cristina & Michael
Milutin has been my real estate agent since 2008 and has helped me find highly qualified rental tenants for my Greenwich Village co-op apartment. This year I decided to sell the apartment and turned to Milutin because of his knowledge of the real estate market and his professionalism. He handled all aspects of the sale, patiently answered my questions, and always kept me informed. I knew that he would act in my best interest. He has done a great job! – Adele
Milutin was very helpful in our house hunt as well as patient. We switched the neighborhood we were looking in about 3-4 times and Milutin did his best to accommodate our needs, which resulted in the purchase of our new home! I know the Brooklyn market can be tough and we were able to find the home of our dreams in only 2 or 3 months. I would highly recommend Milutin to anyone looking for a new home. – Julia & Brian
Milutin helped us buy an apartment on the low of the financial crisis. What impressed us most is that though I contacted him 2008-Q4 and the market may not have generated much income for him personally for a while, he consistently advised us to be patient. We finally bought an apartment 2009-Q2, spot on, on the low. When in 2013 we returned to Europe and decided to sell again, Milutin positioned the apartment carefully and was patient to sell. We ended up with almost 50% profit. In short, though Milutin's professionalism justifies the highest scores on every aspect, to me it is his strategic insight, executed with the highest levels of honesty and integrity, that make him an exceptional partner for anyone new to New York. I hold him in the highest regard, wholeheartedly recommended! – Andries
