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!

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!

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.

Bought a home in 2013.
I found LG Fairmont through a friend that used them for the purchase of their home in 2012. I contacted them at 1:30 on a Sunday, and was stunned when I got a call within 5 minutes! Their punctuality and professionalism never wavered throughout the entire process. I always have friends that ask if I know a good real estate company, I always say yes, LG Fairmont!

Bought a home in 2013.
I inquired about a home on Zillow in early August. The team at LG Fairmont was quick to respond and set up a showing right away. Although we decided against that neighborhood, after a few weeks of searching we ended up find our dream home. Derek was an expert negotiator and got us a great price. Thanks for all your help, we couldn't be happier.

Bought a home in 2013.
I am new in real estate, and was looking for my first investment property. The amount of knowledge that LG Fairmont had was amazing. They knew all the ins and outs of the Financial District and found me a great studio with an incredible return

Bought a home in 2013.
First of all, I usually never write reviews. After dealing with LG Fairmont in the purchase of my Co-op in Midtown, I felt it was my duty. They were on top of their game from the get-go, and never disappointed me. Within two days of contacting them, we were out looking at units and I found mine within 2 weeks! Bravo LG!

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $3.625M in Little Italy, New York, NY.
"I tried to find an apartment on my own when I first began looking for a 2 Bed condo to buy. I got incredibly frustrated and decided to contact an agent. Needless to say, I'm so glad I did. I found out about LG Fairmont from a friend that had used them in the past. As soon as I spoke with them, they took over the entire search process for me. I just sat back and relaxed from start to finish!"

Bought a home in 2013.
Derek Lee and Aaron Graf are great real estate brokers. They have access to all the listings in the city and know a lot of the other brokers, which seemed to make scheduling and negotiating easier. They are also very good at financial analysis. They used spreadsheets and showed us comps in a clear format so we could understand what a fair price would be. I recommend them for your search!

Showed home in 2013 in Financial District, Manhattan, New York, NY.
LG Fairmont has a very good team. Everyone I interacted with was responsive, which was good because a lack of responsiveness is my big pet peeve. Derek and Aaron answered emails at all hours. They also had good recommendations for lawyers and people to do our loan. We knew what building we wanted so we didn’t use them for help with that, but they definitely made the process run smoothly.
