Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 in Washington Heights, New York, NY.

We were in search of an apartment building to purchase. As this was our first time buying real estate in NYC we were fairly clueless. Thomas dealt with all of our dumb questions and restlessness with ease and helped us to feel like experienced buyers. When we finally found our dream building, Thomas handled what became a lengthy negotiation process without missing a thing. We made out better than expected and are more than happy with how our first purchase went down.

Bought a Cooperative home in 2015 in Washington Heights, New York, NY.

We used Tom for our recent purchase. Tom has great knowledge of the local area. He showed us several places before we were ready to buy. Very happy with the purchase of our home. Would recommend to others.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2016 in Inwood, New York, NY.

My partner and I have purchased 4 apartments in NYC with the assistance of Tom in the last year. What impressed me initially with Tom was his honesty which is a very important trait that we look for in business associates. After getting into the process of finding a potential apartment, doing research, submitting an offer, negotiation and closing our respect for Tom and appreciation for his responsiveness and dedication was such that we purchased 3 additional apartments with his help and hope to procure more.
We also contracted with Tom (The Bizzaro Agency) to rent out the apartments. Needless to say we are very happy with his services associated with the rentals including advertising, showing the apartments, screening and negotiating with the tenant''s and communication with the building management company.

One of our apartments had an AC problem that had a significant lead time to repair. Tom loaned the tenants his spare window AC. That was way beyond the scope of a typical realtor but typical of Tom.

I am sincere about my comments above and really believe that anyone purchasing an apartment with Toms assistance and expertise will not go wrong.

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in North Riverdale, Bronx, NY.

Tom is truly a one-of-a-kind realtor who transformed the process of finding and buying a home in NYC from utterly frustrating to an exciting, illuminating and very successful experience! We had always heard the NYC real estate market was terrifying and cut throat, but Tom took all of that away and truly offered us personalized service and made us feel like we were his top priority. As first time home buyers in the area, Tom walked us through each step and was so generous with his time in showing us property after property (sometimes multiple times).

We ALWAYS felt like Tom was a friend and had our future as a young family in mind, and our home buying experience really benefited from his advice, negotiating ideas and patience. We can''t recommend Tom highly enough - and I think one quick example says it all: right after we closed on our home and were driving there for the first time with keys in hand, my husband looked over at me and said "I am so so excited but, I have to say, I''m really going to miss working with Tom!" We come out of this process with a home we love and a new friend we adore, what could be better than that?!

Thank you Tom!
