Sold a Multi Family home in 2001 in Hunters Point, Long Island City, NY.
I approached Ron Cohen to help me find an investment property, after having consulted 3 other agencies, through which I saw 11 other properties. Ron focused on my specific needs, and the 3 properties he showed me had never been accessed by the previous agencies, and one of them turned out to be a great deal for me. This guy was generous with his time, knowledgable, and energetic. I have recommended Ron in the past to another investor, and also to a Latin American family (for a rental) and in both cases the people were very thankful to me.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $600K in Hartsdale, NY.
I used Gotham West realty to make my home purchase.
Ron was not only incredibly responsive, but was able to very quickly put a professional comparative home analysis together which allowed for a speedy deal and saved me money!
Would absolutely utilize Ron's services again and would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to either buy or sell property.
Ron was instrumental in the sale of my co-op. He was always honest and never gave any false expectations during a tough economic time for sellers. Once he had a valid prospect, he walked both parties through the process seamlessly and got the sale completed. I would absolutely recommend him when selling in New York City due to his well rounded knowledge of the market.
Showed home in 2014 in Forest Hills, Queens, New York, NY 11375.
Ron is very knowledgeable in the real estate profession. He has many years of experience in this business. He takes the time to understand our requirements for our future home as well as our financial situation. He offers excellent, unselfish advice. He does not push us toward any house simply for a sale but encouraged us to pursue a house that will fit our requirements within our budget.
Ron has always been friendly, understanding and dedicated. I would highly recommend his services to friends, family, and colleagues.
I had numerous questions throughout the process of buying a new home. Mr. Cohen was able to explain each step of the process of buying a new home. He didn't let me make the fatal mistake of buying something I couldn't afford.
I am very picky about where I live and I took a very long time (more than two years) to find what I want. He was there every step of the way and it was obvious that he wasn't looking for a quick commission.
Mr. Cohen is very knowledgeable regarding neighborhoods and how those neighborhoods would coalesce with my personality. He knew me better than a I knew myself and prevented my from making rash decisions and offers. It later turned out that he saved me a lot of money and got me into a great neighborhood. (Bayside!!!)
Even though I thought I was familiar with queens, I had no idea what neighborhood to live in. I was shopping by price and if I found a property that was too good to be true (it always was) he would point out that fact. He would see that I was skeptical of his opinion and he would indulge me anyway and show me around the neighborhood to let me make a decision. At one point we took a walking tour of a neighborhood until I was convinced that the neighborhood wasn't right for me, another time while driving to a neighborhood, I exited the highway and reentered it in the other direction in mere minutes. My point is that even though he knew I wouldn't like the neighborhood he would still indulge me and let ME make up my mind for MYSELF. He was my Sherpa for this mountain called real estate.
Helped me rent a Townhouse home in Maspeth, Flushing, NY.
I've used Ron both for a single-family home search (which ultimately didn't happen) and to find my new apartment in Maspeth, NY which I'm in love with. Ron's a reliable, transparent source of information when it comes to Queens neighborhoods and the state of the real estate market in general. He was extremely professional with me at all times, and built healthy relationships with all of the selling agents that we dealt with. It was a relief for me to have a realtor on my side that wasn't conniving or annoying. I'm excited to work with him again when I'm ready to purchase my home.
Ron has been an exemplary agent who always put our interests above his own. In a profoundly difficult and even ugly process with the co-op Board, Ron was always a gracious and strong advocate for us. I can't recommend him highly enough.
