Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $2.0M in Greenwood, Brooklyn, NY.
Ron is a genuine, caring guy who also happens to be an expert on the Brooklyn real estate market. My wife and I bought a home with Ron's help this year and we couldn't be happier with the service he provided. If you're buying or selling a home in Brooklyn, I highly recommend Ron.
Bought a Cooperative home in 2012 in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, NY.
My husband and I recently worked with Ron, who helped us purchase our first home. Working with Ron was a pleasure–as first time buyers we had a lot of questions and misconceptions, and Ron was an invaluable resource (and forever patient no matter how many questions or demands we had!)
Ron was everything and more we were looking for in an agent–experienced, personable, genuinely caring, and really just an all-around nice guy. When we closed on our dream apartment at the end of last year I felt like we were celebrating not with an agent, but with a friend.
We would never consider working with anyone else. Highly recommended!

When I was preparing to list my home, I planned to interview multiple brokers. Ron was the first one that I interviewed...I subsequently canceled the second interview. Ron is sharp, personable and professional. I knew that the sale of my home was in the best hands possible. Ron is an expert negotiator and got me a great price for my unit. He walked me through the process and took a lot of the stress out of it. I have already passed Ron's information to my family and friends and will continue to do so. If you are looking for the most positive of experiences, Ron is your broker.

I am very glad that whatever forces compelled me to walk into Brown Harris Stevens did so when Ron Emenheiser was in the office. From the moment we first sat down to the moment all the contracts were signed, Ron provided honest guidance, diligent research, and rapid communication. As I learned, New York is far from the easiest place in the world to find an apartment, and as a first-time buyer I often felt overwhelmed by the number of choices and later on, applying to a co-op and getting a mortgage.
He wouldn’t tell you this, but like many buyers, I had a fairly demanding list of criteria when it came to finding the right place. Ron found just about every apartment on the market that met my esoteric architectural taste, fit my budget, and had, above all else, an eat-in kitchen. Because I work and take classes, my schedule didn’t really fit business hours, but Ron was happy to drive me into Gramercy Park in mid-afternoon or meet me at eight in the morning for a stroll around Brooklyn Heights.
Once we found a place, Ron recommended a great lawyer and helped me assemble a compelling co-op application. Most co-ops don’t leap at the idea of having twenty-something graduate students as neighbors, but Ron really took the time to get to know me and helped me present my more respectable (or less unrespectable?) qualities. Six months later, I am the proud owner of a little piece of our great city, and I wouldn’t have been able do it without Ron.
I can unreservedly recommend Ron Emenheiser to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is a professional, hard-working, and thoughtful real estate agent and human being.
Bought a Cooperative home in 2012 for approximately $400K in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY.
Very friendly and thorough, available and communicative. Went above and beyond in providing information on the buying process and particulars. Followed through on details, to the point of fixing a broken outlet in the apartment I was buying! Highly recommended.
Ron was invaluable to us last year when we transitioned from home owner to renter last year. First, the sale of our apartment in Brooklyn (which we listed in 2010) felt like a bit of a miracle. Ron identified a possible buyer in December of 2010, but they needed time to sell their apartment. Their status put a signifinicant doubt on whether they were a good candidate.
Although Ron was able to secure other offers for the apartment, none of these offers were close to our asking. We rejected the offers and decided to take the apartment off the market. There were a couple of reasons for this, but the most critical driver was that our second child was due in May and we decided to stay put.
But Ron kept working. He revisited the initial couple who needed to sell their home and found out that they were in contract. Once he confirmed this status, Ron told them that we would sell, but only at our list price.
They agreed and we got unexpected great news from Ron. From there Ron moved fast and took care of all details professionally and quickly. Which was great for us because by then we were up to our elbows in diapers and very sleep deprived.
A couple of month's later after living in the suburbs for the summer, we realized that we are city people and needed to come back to Brooklyn. We contacted Ron and he quickly found us several apartments in good school districts. All were very good homes and we had a hard time choosing (but that is a good and welcomed problem to have). More importantly, he was able to time our move with our older daughters school schedule so she did not have to miss days any school days.
Ron is more than a broker to us. He is our friend. We feel that we would not have made it through last year with out the help Ron provided. I would reccomend him with the highest marks.
Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $700K in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn, NY.
We have employed Ron's services both on the buyer and seller's side and would recommend Ron as an agent to anyone. He has worked extensively in residential and commercial real-estate, is knowledgeable of the Brooklyn real-estate market, and has all of Brown Harris Stevens marketing resources at his disposal. As a person, he is personable and a gentleman. As an agent, he's flexible, client-centered, practical, honest, and a pleasure to work with. We love how Ron has always kept us in the communication loop through email, phone, text--you name it. He has always been tactful but never afraid to tell us anything that we need to hear. Whether receiving or giving good or bad news, Ron is a great sounding board. He has always provided suggestions for any difficulties our buying and selling efforts have encountered and is not afraid to look to a vast network of colleagues for additional ideas. He has always been client focused and very aggressive with his negotiations on our behalf even to the last $10,000. Our family is likely to buy in the Brooklyn area again in the near future and will be dialing Ron's number when the time is right.
Ron showed my wife and me a number of Brooklyn apartments in areas such as the Heights, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens. Through his wife, also a real estate agent who specializes in Manhattan, we eventually found an apartment there that we are extremely happy with.
Ron is very friendly, responsive and punctual, but what we really appreciated most was his ability to understand what we wanted and his respect for our parameters. Many times we came across agents who wanted to pass off undesirable properties, or convince you that you'd want to pay a lot more for something else, or be in a completely different area, etc. In the end it would result in more wasted time and aggravation. Ron was very candid about the pros and cons of each place, and the lack of BS was very refreshing. I would refer anybody to Ron without reservation.
