Bought a home in 2013.

I have buying buying and selling homes for a long time. Naturally I run into a lot of brokers, most have ever been able to add any value or insight into the process. That all changed when I met the Co-Founder of LG Fairmont, Derek Lee. His background in finance and mathematics was similar to mine, so I was immediately comfortable with him. He has the entire search process streamlined. He negotiated the heck out of the other broker and got me a great deal! He has my recommendation for life!  More Less

Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Financial District, New York, NY.

When I decided to buy an investment property this year, I took the advice from a banker friend of mine and contacted LG Fairmont. He had used them when he bought his last year, and really applauded their depth of knowledge and understanding of the New York real estate market. These guys could be on Wall Street in any number of senior analyst positions! Before we even began to tour units, they sent me a excel breakdown of all the properties that fit within my search criteria. Numbers don't lie! We settled on one that had a great cap rate, and also the biggest opportunity for growth.   More Less

Helped me rent a home.

When I finished college, my job sent me straight to the big apple! I was very excited, but had heard horror stories of the "apartment hunt" and of slimy real estate agents. By luck I came across a property listed by LG Fairmont. It was a bit out of my price range, but the agent offered to help me find what I needed. After that, they took over the entire process. All I had to do was show up where and when they told me! We saw 15 places in 2 days and made an offer on the third! I will be recommending them to anyone who asks moving forward, and when I buy in the city I'll use them again!  More Less
