Michael S. Pakula comes to New York Living Solutions with over 20 years of experience running an advertising, consulting, marketing , and market research company for mid- market and Fortune 500 clients. During his time as CEO, Michael worked closely with clients to understand their business needs in order to provide in-depth consultation on IT projects and marketing and advertising strategy. In addition Michael was intimately involved with conducting comprehensive strategic research for Investment Banks. Michael will tell you that he is not interested in selling an apartment to his clients, but in finding his clients, both foreign and domestic an apartment that they would be happy to live in and that would also be the best investment. In today's environment, it is imperative for a buyer or seller to work with a broker, like Michael, who has a detailed understanding of how location, real estate taxes, price per square foot, amenities, renovated vs. an unrenovated apartment can affect the value of a property. This enables his clients to make an informed decision based on Michael's in-depth comparison of similar area properties. Michael's years of vast experience have left him with invaluable knowledge regarding mortgages, market trends, the importance of a qualified real estate attorney to protect the buyer in the transaction. Perhaps most importantly Michael is a master in the art of negotiations. Michael has been successful in accomplishing his mission statement with New York Living Solutions. He dedicates himself to each deal and is thought of as a trusted advisor to his clients, who find the combination of his finance expertise and his knowledge of the real estate market instrumental to their successful rental or sale transactions.

    Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Financial District, New York, NY.
    This is my first time buying a condo in New York City. Let me tell you, I have absolutely no experience and probably once of the clients that ask tons of questions. Michael is always there for me anytime, any day when I have any questions. He responded very fast even though he is busy.

    I am interested in buying a place as a primary residence and then eventually turn it into an investment property. Michael has great knowledge about every neighborhood in Manhattan and explain to me which building will be the best suits my needs. He is direct and straightforward on telling me the pros and cons of each and every building that we saw.

    He is always on time and he has a car service that brings me around when we are looking at different properties. I have regular working hours and I don't have a lot of time during the weekdays to walk around so the car service is perfect.

    Other than that, as I am a first time buyer, I have absolutely no connection to any attorney and mortgage officer. Michael has a lot of contacts and I can always count on him. The attorney and the mortgage officer that he refers are all really helpful to me. Michael doesn't stop the relationship as only showing me apartments but also helping me dealing with my move in, some questions with my loan and some other issues in this whole process. Buying a property is stressful especially a first time buyer. I am very thankful and glad that I have Michael to help me with this process.

    I will definitely recommend Michael to anyone of you who is looking for an apartment in Manhattan. Good luck in your process!

    Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Tudor City, New York, NY.
    Michael is always on it.....you can depend on him 100% to get the job done.....In our case there were mountains of paperwork demanded by the Board of Directors, Approval process and countless exchanges between the Buyers and Sellers. Michael handled everything adroitly, on time and we look forward to working with Michael again on new endeavors.  MoreLess
