Josh was a dream to work with. Always pleasant and encouraging as well as supportive as the process went on. Although we had hoped to get our price Josh explained the market and other factors so we were able to arrive at a slightly lower sale price that satisfied both buyer and ourselves. Josh is intimately familiar with the downtown market and educated himself on all the buildings in our block so as to present a cohesive picture to our buyer. Another important thing: Josh was ALWAYS available no matter what the hour to discuss issues as they came up and all his associates that we met were equally as charming! You can't go wrong hiring Josh to sell your space, or to find you the perfect new space.
Sold a Cooperative home in 2014 in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, NY.
I worked with Josh and Nate as a team, they exceeded my expectations as Realtors. Josh is a very experienced professional and able to handle sales and negotiations with a high level of skill.
We were very impressed by the speed and accuracy of their work. They really delivered.
Timeline - we met Josh and Nate on Friday, photos taken on Wednesday, listed with an open house on Saturday, 36 groups came, 5 offers made. You could see that they hustled to make that open house a success, and then they managed the offer process very professionally.
We sold at a considerable premium above our neighbors who had sold their apartment a few months prior with another agent.
Josh and his team did an excellent job. Josh gave us great advice up front about pricing strategies and was very focused on moving things forward quickly. They had a professional photographer take amazing pictures of the apartment and had an aggressive marketing strategy. We had 4 above ask offers within a week! The team was very responsive and are highly recommended.
Josh listed and sold our apartment. We had a good deal of market knowledge going into the process but Josh's insights were truly helpful. He advised on timing, staging, and pricing strategy including a designing a process which generated enormous visibility and bidding interest on the property in short order. Josh's efforts led to a bidding war, with over a dozen offers within a week. The ultimate sale, to a well-qualified purchaser, closed quickly. Josh also assisted with the board review process, allowing for a seamless sale. I would highly recommend Josh to prospective sellers.
Sold a Cooperative home in 2014 for approximately $650K in West Village, New York, NY.
I was with another broker for 8 months while my apartment languished on the market, and we had to drop the price of the apt numerous times. I finally got Josh and he was able to get me multiple offers on my apartment the first open house! I was skeptical about his advice to stage the apartment, especially since my first broker had counseled against it. The expense was worth it. My apartment looked incredible and the new pictures were professional and impressive. He was very impressive, taking calls at all hours. He guided me through the process (especially someone so nervous and skeptical after my initial experience) so we could get the highest possible offer. We ended up $45K over the asking price! I truly think of Josh as a miracle worker.
Sold a Cooperative home in 2014 in Chelsea, New York, NY.
I took my time researching brokers to handle the sale of my apartment and decided on Josh based on his knowledge, expertise and record. I could not have made a better choice. Josh came in and did exactly what he said he would do. His marketing generated traffic and sold my apartment in very short time, negotiating the best price and finding the most qualified buyer. Even with today's sellers market, my apartment needed a very specific type of buyer and Josh found him. Now that I'm looking for new place to buy, Josh and his team continue to give me the great service that I need to navigate through this process.
Sold a Other home in 2013 in West Village, New York, NY.
Josh Rubin was a true professional from our first meeting through the closing process. I chose him because he is particularly knoweldgeable about the West Village and because he had extensive experience with apartments in my price range.
Mr. Rubin's team provided ample time to prepare the apartment for showings and was diligent in finding prospective buyers. While several offers were too low to be seriously considered, the final offer came well within the average time frame for sales in our vicinity.
I can recommend Josh and his team without qualification. They were trustworthy, helpful, and knowledgeable about all aspects of the selling process.
Sold a Cooperative home in 2013 for approximately $925K in Flatiron District, New York, NY.
Josh and his team did an amazing job selling our apartment. They helped us with all aspects of the process, including evaluating the right time to put the apartment on the market, suggesting easy things to do to best stage the apartment, assisting with evaluation of bids and negotiations with buyers and finally guiding us through to the closing. We definitely recommend Josh and his team to other sellers in Chelsea and elsewhere in Manhattan.
Josh did an outstanding job for us. He was extremely responsive and available. He was able to position two qualified buyers for our apartment and negotiate a price very close to our asking price. Very pleased with the experience and would recommend his services without reservation.
