We had a great experience working with Oren. He was very knowledgeable. He always responded to our calls and emails right away, and he kept us updated about the newest property listings. He helped make a stressful experience (buying a coop) much more manageable.

Bought a Cooperative home in 2015 in Kew Gardens, Kew Gardens, NY.

Oren was highly knowledgeable and always available. Being a first time home buyer, and feeling overwhelmed with the process, Oren took the time out of his day to provide the steps and keep me on track with the process. His patience is greatly appreciated and negotiation skills in assisting with what met my requirements. I couldn't have done it without him. Thank you.

Showed home in 2014 in Forest Hills, Queens, New York, NY.

I have worked with quite a few brokers before. Oren is the best! He is knowledgeable, professional, patient, and considerate. He explained everything very clearly. He worked very efficient to arrange showings. He made efforts to meet our schedule. He was very responsive and always kept us updated. When we had questions about a property, he took notes, tried his best to get the information, and got back to us very quickly. Oren acted in our best interest and offered good suggestions. He encouraged us to buy reasonably priced properties, instead of fancy but over priced ones, and do the interior design in our own way, which could save us a lot of money. We'll always come back to Oren when we need to buy/sell/sublet, and definitely recommend him to our friends without reservation. Thank you for your help, Oren.

Helped me rent a home in Forest Hills, Queens, New York, NY 11375.

Oren was great! He went above and beyond his duties to make this process easy for my girlfriend and me. Even after the deal was closed, he made sure that we were comfortable throughout the whole process. We went to a couple of other realtors before we met Oren. They did not compare to his kindness and professionalism. We are renting now, but we will definitely use him in the future. Hopefully, next time it will be to buy our own home. All we can say is that he surely is one of a kind. We highly recommend him.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Forest Hills, Queens, New York, NY 11375

I've kind of led Oren on. Twice. I'm a veteran trying to use a VA loan with not much liquid balance at all. I gave up after two weeks the first time and Oren was very friendly and understanding and professional. Because of this, when my family offered to help a bit financially, I contacted Oren again.

Let me be clear, I've spoken to dozens of agents and have even been assigned an agent through my pre approved lender. None have been half as understanding and professional as Oren.

Oren produced two lists for me of which I was picky enough to choose only one property. Not a problem. I needed the condo management number to call and ask about registering to be a VA approved building. Not a problem. After all his help and efforts, I decided once again that buying is not suitable for my current situation. Still not a problem.

I will be keeping Oren's contact info so when I finally am really ready to buy, I know I'll be in good hands.

I recommend his services to anyone.

Bought a Apartment home in 2013 in Forest Hills, Forest Hills, NY.

Throughout the entire process of buying my new home, Oren was informative, helpful, accommodating, and responsive. I learned from Oren a number of things since I wasn't overly familiar with the process. He was always available and accommodated my numerous requests. He was also very responsive to my messages. Oren even drove me to my closing. He was a pleasure to work with and will be the first person I call if I have another real estate deal or if I have questions.

Bought a home in 2013 in Forest Hills, Queens, New York, NY 11375.

This was our first real-estate transaction, and I'm very happy that we had Oren as our agent. Oren was very professional and he patiently guided us through the whole process. He made us very comfortable and I always had the feeling that he had our best interest in mind. It took us some time to find the right place, and Oren was very understanding and patient the whole time. He told my wife "when we'll get into the right place, you'll know that this is the one right away", and that exactly what happened! I'll definitely will recommend Oren to anyone in the need for real estate service.

Bought a home in 2013 in Forest Hills, Queens, New York, NY 11375.

Oren knows the area intimately, having lived here for many years. He also knows the ins and outs of the housing search process, and gave us sound guidance every step of the way. Oren was amazingly patient: He guided us to dozens of home viewings; listened closely to our reactions; and gradually helped us to clarify our criteria. I always felt that he understood our needs, and was putting us first. Above all, in many little ways, I could tell that Oren was an honest broker with impeccable ethics. I will recommend him to my friends, and hope to work with him again in the future!
