Client testimonials:

"Deciding to sell my first apartment was a difficult and stressful situation. Warner was extremely helpful and supportive. He was very receptive to my concerns and was always flexible and considerate of my schedule. Most of all, Warner is so honest and hardworking. He kept me very informed with constant updates and offered invaluable advice. He listened to my needs, and got me a great deal for my apartment in a short period of time. I highly recommend him and will use him again when the time comes." - D.G. seller
"While I like to think I am pretty good at handling stressful situations nothing quite prepared me for purchasing my first home. Warner was an invaluable asset in navigating both the emotional and financial waters that go into home ownership. Throughout the process he was truly there every step of the way to make sure that I was knowledgeable and comfortable with every decision being made. What started off as a working relationship has now turned into a lifelong friendship." - S.R., buyer and seller
"We worked with Warner to sell our apartment. I think his advice was excellent in terms of getting the apartment ready for sale and what would be ideal. I think his knowledge of the neighborhood and comparables was solid and he had good rationale for our pricing. We sold our apartment above asking price on the first day. I don't think, however that it means we were underpriced, I think we just hit it on the head. I would recommend Warner and would NOT have recommended other real estate brokers with whom we've worked with (and have not returned to work with.)" -J. Z., seller
"I had the pleasure of working with Warner when I was looking to purchase an apartment in Manhattan. Warner was extremely knowledgeable about the various markets in downtown Manhattan. He was also patient and took the time to understand what I particularly wanted in an apartment. When I found the right apartment, Warner was instrumental in helping me secure the contract. Although I had offered the lowest of four offers on the apartment, I learned later that the sellers were so swayed by my statement of interest (drafted entirely by Warner) that they decided to counteroffer only to me. Two years later when I needed to sell my apartment to relocate to the West Coast, there was no question in my mind who my broker would be. I was in a rush to sell, and Warner delivered, completing the sale of my apartment within 3 months of putting it on the market with a final sale price 11% over the purchase price. If you are looking to buy or sell an apartment in Manhattan, I highly recommend Warner's services, without reservation.” –J.J., buyer and seller
"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
"Simply put, Warner is a pro. His knowledge of an extremely dynamic market is impressive, and was vital in our decision to list our apartment. He was able to devise a strategy that met our needs not only with price, but with closing times to accommodate our eventual move. Everything played out exactly how he predicted, and he was able to secure a deal in a timely fashion. Overall, Warner guided us through each part of the process with sound advice and kept us calm. If you are looking for someone to be a real advocate for you, and make the whole process as headache-free as possible, this is your guy!” –J.S., seller
"Ari and Warner act as a true team with the highest level of professionalism and expertise. They are aware and ahead of the market and honest and supportive through the process. On the sale, they were able to leverage their resources to get the maximum amount of visibility for our listing. Even in a challenging environment, we had a signed contract in less than a week at a price that we were happy with. On the purchase, they gave us objective guidance and were sensitive to our timing and needs. We relied on their experience and real estate knowledge to find our new home and simultaneously close two deals in a short timeframe. The process was easy thanks to their efforts and we couldn't be happier with the results.” – D.C. & S. C., buyers and sellers
"Warner and his team are absolutely fantastic. Ari, Anne and the rest of the team work seamlessly together and handled every single detail with perfection. From the staging, and pricing strategy to negotiation and logistics, it felt like the whole team was available any time of the day to work through anything with me. I met Warner in 2008 when I needed a broker to help me find a home, now in 2015 he and his team help me sell the same home at a price higher than I could have imagined. In less than a week they helped me select the perfect buyers. I cannot thank this group enough, and will continue to recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home in the area.” – T.D., seller
"Consummate professional. He is hard working, personable, understands a client's needs, and listens. I had a wonderful experience working with Warner and would recommend him in a heart beat to anyone looking for a broker. He handle both our home sale and purchase, each going smoothly." - B.N., seller
"The process of selling with Warner could not have been easier. He was able to get me a fantastic price for my condo with very favorable and unique terms that allowed me piece of mind and substantial flexibility to shop for and purchase a new apartment without a risk that I would have a timing or funding issue. Extremely knowledgeable about the market and process and a consistent voice of reason and reassuring level head throughout both my sale and purchase."- A.A., seller
