I just closed on an apartment purchase with Ravi's help and services. I can honestly say that he was an absolute pleasure to work with.
When I originally set out on the search to buy an apartment last summer, I really didn't know what I was looking for and he really helped me to figure out my needs.
After a month I stalled my search for 10 months and Ravi stayed in touch with listings that may be of interest, helping me to further grow my education until I was ready to buy, even though he was aware I wasn't actively looking at the time.
When I was ready to begin the search again I reached out to Ravi and he was incredibly patient with me and my thousands of questions (I'm sure questions he had answered to me on multiple occasions before) even willing to join a call with my father to help us both to understand the NYC really market and how it differs to the UK market.
He has always been kind, attentive and listened to what I was wanted until we could narrow the search to the perfect apartment. He didn't waste my time showing me apartments that he knew didn't fit my criteria. He was always available and patient and will to share his vast knowledgable about the market. He helped me greatly with all the documentation needed to ensure I had the strongest possible case and coached me through the process so I had a better chance of finding my new home.
I've heard that buying your first apartment can be one life's most stressful endeavors, but for me, it ended up being a pleasure.
I would have no hesitation to recommend Ravi to any friends or family, in fact, I would actively recommend him individually.
Can I write two reviews so I can give him 10 stars? Communication, professionalism, knowledgeable, trustworthy and an incredible human, when embarking on the stress of NYC real estate, this is the guy you want on your side.
Yes this is long and I could have given way more examples, but just a few details about Ravi, his ethic and what it's like to work with him.
HUSTLER! Ravi WORKS for you. He listened to everything we wanted and didn't waste our time with things that weren't a fit. He was creative in finding properties and had out of the box ideas to get us where we wanted. We had spoken to 3 other realtors before Ravi, and most of them just wanted to show us listings available on StreetEasy. He hustled back and forth from NYC to BK so many times, whenever and how often we needed. He was the advocate we needed. Always told us the truth and gave his opinions when we asked.
COMMUNICATION: He was quick to text, follow up, email. We never waited for him or had to ask twice. When we had our little freakouts that we weren't going to find a place or that all the things would fall apart, he would answer, whatever the time, with confidence to ease our anxieties.
GREAT HUMAN - it's a few weeks after our close, and we couldn't be happier. Thinking back, We are forever grateful to have found and worked with him. We consider him a friend. There were so many times where Ravi would take us for a drink or take us to coffee depending on the situation. You can tell it's not about money, he genuinely loves what he does and he's great at it.
Obviously, we highly recommend Ravi to everyone. We have already referred him to our close friends on the UES and will continue to everyone we know looking for a new home.
I don't even know where to start here! Ravi made what could have been an extremely stressful apartment search into something that was actually--dare I say--fun?? He's an amazing communicator, a great advocate, smart, and hilarious. He showed us a range of apartments in our price range with our specifications and was amazing about letting us make our own judgment about the places. Never pressured us or rushed any decisions. This guy is the best there is!
Ravi knows that, whether you are a buyer or a seller, transacting real estate is one of life’s most fundamental experiences. He will give his all to ensure that your real estate transaction is smooth, efficient, and successful.
