Peter, Im sure you’ll agree that there is an uneasy feeling one gets when they offer something of personal value for sale. I felt it. I wondered if I should sell and if it was priced right. I questioned the strength of the real estate market. I felt nervous when we didn’t get an offer the first week. The above are real emotions that were experienced by me and I’m happy to say were put at easy every step of the way by you. You guided me through the process and answered every question I had no matter how often I asked. You advised me thoughtfully and sincerely. I was confident you had my best interest at heart. You priced the property just right. You handled the buyers perfectly. You offered your time without hesitation and advised with the negotiation. Without exaggeration, you were responsible for this sale. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and feel good about its outcome. I want you to know I appreciate all you did. Thank you again, Mike Hechme
Hi Peter, thanks for all your help in this process! We've been painting and working in the new place, and it feels great. I would be happy to write you a referral! Peter was a great agent to work, even as we were the buyers and he was representing the seller. He was friendly communicative, and willing and available to make the apartment available to us on multiple occasions. Even though he was not representing us, we felt we could trust him to negotiate the sale in a way that was good for everyone. We would definitely work with him again and recommend him to friends. Deanna D'Onofrio
Peter was extremely helpful throughout the entire process and I highly recommend his services. -Joseph Santangelo
Veronica, I just wanted to thank you for the amazing service you gave me in the sale of my coop. As we both know, it was no easy task! I can’t thank you enough for the tremendous time you put into my sale as well as the time you took to deal with the crazy coop boards and management company! Bravo!!!
When we decided to sell our home, It was important to us to Find a real estate agent who we could really trust. We wanted someone who had our best interest at heart. Not only did we want to find buyers who would love our house as much as we did, but we were also looking for a professional who was knowledgeable and savvy; we wanted the best possible return on our investment. Veronica Livia was all that and more. She listened closely to our needs, developed a plan that was specific to my home, and then implemented the plan. After only a few weeks on the market Veronica presented offers at and above the asking price with buyers who were thrilled to call our house their new home.
Joe and Haryana were both great. Very enthusiastic and very helpful with the board applications and board interview. Our experience through the whole process was great. From, Anthony DiTore
Joe, My mom and I wanted to thank you for everything through the sale process of 1813. We thank you for your professionalism and in depth knowledge of the market and all that comes along with a transaction like this. It was a pleasure dealing with such a class organization and as mentioned, I have many friends who we will point your way who may find themselves in need of a partner to help sell there home. Please keep in touch as the least I can now do is give you any needed pointers should you get serious about moving down to Monmouth county. Speak soon, Sandra and Jonathan Fiore.
In dealing with Madison Estates & Jack Sardar I couldn’t have had a better experience. In today’s world of mediocrity and attitude, Jack Sardar is a throwback to better times. As a building owner he has rented stores for me very quickly. Every time the store was rented to a good creditworthy tenant. He handled every detail with total professionalism. I would highly recommend Jack Sardar to anyone seeking help with any real estate business.
Jack was very informed, friendly and always available. He effectively communicated what I should expect in the current real estate market. And made sure I was fully aware of each step along the process.
We worked with Regina Hernandez to sell our families multi-family home & couldn't have been happier with the results she delivered. Communicating with Regina was always a breeze. She addressed all our concerns and always kept us informed along the way. Regina is polite, knowledgeable, friendly, professional and all around awesome! We look forward to working with her again in the future. -Albert B
Working with Jack was an absolute pleasure. He made the transaction of buying a house simple and easy. Every one of my requests was quickly addressed. He was able to easily negotiate anything that came up along the way. Jack was always available and never ignored any of our phone calls or emails. In addition, he's an honest person. Jack Sardar is the best broker that I have ever dealt with. I would highly recommend him for buyers and sellers alike. I am looking forward to my next transaction with him. -Amron L
Jack contacted us after our listing expired with the previous broker. We were hesitant to re-list because brokers tend to promise a lot but seldom deliver those results. That was not the case when working with Jack. He got us several great offers within the first two weeks and we were in contact in less than a month. Jack was with us every step of the way and always extremely responsive. If you need a good broker that delivers real results, don't hesitate to hire Jack Sardar. - Dr. Mark C & Dr. Joseph E
Lisa Reich gets our 5 Star Plus review: Lisa is an experienced and accomplished professional who gets the job done with the utmost competence and congeniality as well. Lisa was attentive every step of the way. If we had a question, whether by phone, text message or email, Lisa's response time was amazing, usually 5 min. or less! We felt that Lisa consistently went that extra mile for us throughout the entire process of selling our home.
Joe Baglio's expertise, honesty and his honest interest in me, and my situation, as a person, not just a customer brought us together more as friends than as in a seller-realtor relationship. He understood what was needed in a manner particular to my house and did not waste time with selling approaches that would not apply to the specific house. Joe (and Halyna) kept the disruptive side of showing the house at a minimum, making appointments for showing only to well qualified and interested candidates, something you get to appreciate when selling a house. In short, Joe (and Halyna) have the expertise and the necessary consideration for the details, that are different in every deal, to have made a successful sale and a very appreciative client. I value the friendship that developed as a result of this transaction. - Steven S.
Joe was very transparent through the whole process, and was very helpful in managing expectations on both sides of the transaction, which you don’t find very often in brokers. He was always easily accessible, and was extremely responsive to every request and question we posed to him. He was enjoyable to work with, and help make the transaction reach the finish line through all the obstacles faced. -Adam J.
Halyna was a pleasure to deal with - she was very knowledgeable about the apartment and neighborhood. Also, she is such a sweet heart! It was obvious that she worked very hard to accommodate my needs. I would recommend her to anyone! - Ivanna Kiyashka
It was a pleasure working with Halyna. The selling process went smoothly and stress free. She is thorough, knowledgeable, thoughtful, and friendly. She is excellent in every aspect. I highly recommend Halyna. Kindest regards. - Hana Hassan
Working with Jack on selling our multifamily home was on a professional level to say the least. Jack had vetted the perfect clients and in a matter of days we began getting serious offers very close to our asking price. We were very pleased and definitely will work with Jack in the near future. -Anthony V.
Dear Marilyn, Now that we are finally to be moving into our dream home, my family and I want to take the time to thank you for everything you have done for us. We heard from lots of people the process for buying a house doesn't always go so smoothly. You were there always for us when we had questions and there were many of them. No matter how many times we called you or text you, we received an immediate response. You didn't make us feel at any way that we were bothering you no matter how many times we asked. We appreciate the time you spent walking us thru each step with your professional expertise and guidance with the utmost patience. You were joy to work with, we don't know what we would have done without you. The help we received from beginning to end made it so easy for us, there are no words. We are happy to refer you to all our friends because of your excellent service. Thank you again for everything. With respect, Rano and family.
Sold a Cooperative home in 2017 in Fort Hamilton, Brooklyn, NY. Review for Former Team Member: Peter Mancini Local knowledge: Process expertise: Responsiveness: Negotiation skills: Peter Mancini is a honest, caring professional with a friendly and upfront personality. That gave me a sense of confidence in him. He is a knowledgeable broker who knows areas as well as explaining the pros and cons of selling or renting my co op apartment. I could not be happier with him and would recommend him highly. -Gary D.
Peter was courteous and professional throughout my entire co-op purchase. He is intelligent and very informative. I would recommend him to my friends and family. He was outstanding. Warmest Regards, Christina S.
We recently purchased our lovely home via a Real Estate Broker named Lou Koss. Lou is not your average broker. Actually, he's not even above Average. The word average can not be used to describe him. He is a cut above the rest. We've dealt with countless brokers in our search for the perfect home, and when we met Lou, we knew we found the perfect broker! Lou is warm, friendly, honest, and professional. He was very patient with us and kind. He was not aggressive or pushy, like many other brokers are. He gently guided us through the home buying process, using his broad knowledge of the Real Estate Market, to educate and inform us at every turn. No question was too big or too small for him, he addressed all our concerns. He crossed every T and dotted every i. Lou Koss is a great guy! -Menachem and Gitty G.
When I decided to sell my home, I asked several people who had recently purchased/sold homes if there was someone they could recommend to me. The name Lou Koss was mentioned by four people who had never met each other! I had thought that the home selling process would be daunting, but Lou put my mind at ease within minutes of meeting him. He was patient and calmly and informatively answered the many questions I had for him. I was quite surprised and more than a little impressed that there were people interested in viewing my home within hours of sitting down with Lou for the first time! I was very eager to sell my home and was contemplating an early offer that was generous. Lou advised me to be prudent and patient with such an important decision. Because of his sage advice, I ended up selling my home for 20% more than the already generous offer. Lou is living proof that you can be great at what you do and still have warmth, a sense of humor and great concern for the needs of your client. The greatest favor I can do for friends, loved ones and acquaintances is to recommend Lou for what will be the most important purchase or sale in their lives. With appreciation and fondness, Matthew D
My search for a coop apartment with Madison Estates was an extremely pleasant experience due to assistance and encouragement from Veronica Livia, my real estate salesperson. I spoke to Veronica to discuss what I was looking for, my price range, and the neighborhoods I was interested in. She contacted me a few days later and we made an appointment to meet on May 7 at Madison Estates Douglass Street office. I brought my brother along for moral support and Veronica drove us to view 6 apartments. One needed an extreme make-over and was crossed off our list. We had to wait an hour to see the last so went to Barnes & Noble for a coffee and had a pleasant conversation as Veronica is personable and easy going. We went to see the last apartment and I knew from the minute I walked in the door that this was the place I was looking for. I told Veronica of my interest as soon as we left. She faxed the offer form to me and, having spoken to the sellers real estate salesperson, advised there were multiple offers and said to offer what I would be willing to lose the apartment for. My offer was made and accepted. Gathering and putting together the financial information and forms for the coop board was time consuming but Veronica constantly reassured me all was good. The longest part of the whole experience was waiting for a date for my interview with the coop board. When the date was set and I had my interview I was anxious and emailed Veronica to find out if she had heard anything. I was unaware that she was on vacation in Hawaii but she replied right back to me, even though it was 4AM her time! The coop management company informed us two days after my interview that I was accepted. Three months to the day that I first spoke to Veronica, I closed on my coop. Veronica even drove me (& my brother for continued moral support!) back and forth from the closing in LIC. I am slowly settling into my new home, with plenty of boxes to be unpacked. I truly feel that I am "home" and have Veronica Livia to thank for finding the perfect place for me. - Kathleen K
Dear Peter, I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in finding us our new apartment! After a long and incredibly stressful search, my family and I had grown beyond frustrated with the lack of effort and professionalism shown by most brokers. It was hard enough to be leaving our home of many years, and having to waste time on brokers showing us place after place that didn't fit our needs was infuriating. Most of them either didn't listen to what we wanted, played us against other applicants in order to drive up the rent and thus their commission, or left it up to us to chase them down for answers and/or listings. You, on the other hand, made the process fast and seamless. You actually worked for us instead of just working for a commission, which is a hard find these days. You got us into a place that checked all boxes on our wish list, while still keeping us within our budget. On behalf of myself and my family, thank you for your help. We are so excited to be moving into our new home! I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family in the future. Best, Annette

To Whom It May Concern, I am writing to express my pleasure with Bernie Schachner & Mona Nardone of Madison Estates located at 2922 Avenue R in Brooklyn. They have represented us in our recent sale of our two family home located at 245 Bay Ridge Parkway in Brooklyn, New York. From the first call, through the closing they have been by our side. This was a difficult deal being that my family has lived in the house for over forty years and had grown emotionally attached to the house. Not only did they help us with our Real Estate needs they also offered recommendations and suggestions along the way. During one of our first phone conversations Bernie tells me “I am the real deal” and in the back of my head I thought this is just another sales line but it wasn’t. Bernie and Mona worked as a team and they truly are the REAL DEAL! To reiterate, I am nothing but pleased with Bernie and Mona! Sincerely, John Behette
Veronica Livia was the RE agent from Madison Estates who we chose to list our inherited home in the Windsor Terrace section. There were a few other brokers being considered. After several years of ownership it was decided by the 5 inherited owners to list the home for sale. In my opinion Veronica went way beyond her suites during the listing and final sale. She would often schedule conference calls to keep the owners- scattered amongst 4 different states- abreast of the several open houses she conducted. The feedback was valuable and she did her best to keep us on track when some wondered off the objective to sell. In addition, several times, she tended to some items which were bend her sales responsibility to keep the house up-to-par. Throughout the time frame, Veronica was always courteous and professional and was a pleasure to work with. In my book she’s a five on a scale of one to five. - Tony Ajackie
Lou was amazing from start to finish during the home buying process. He was always there when I had a question to ask and held my hand throughout the whole process. His kindness, attention to detail and his persistence made my home buying process very smooth. I have recommended his services to friends and family and can truly say Lou is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with and I look forward to working with him again. -Celeste Douglas
We were totally satisfied with Joe’s professionalism and the way he took care of things for us. The bottom line is that we had our open house on May 1 and it closed on July 28. Joe made sure everything from the property preparation to the pictures were just right. The listing on Madison Estates and Zillow websites were beautiful. All his staff, in particular Joe himself, did a great job. -Paul & Madeline Kelly
All I can say is: Joe is great! I got my house sold in 3 weeks. -Ajomon J.
Joe was great. Very professional with a good handle of the market. He protected our interests and handled himself with class. We’d recommend him to friends and family looking to sell their home. -Lou D. [Seller]
My husband and I met Peter Mancini when he showed us an apartment that was a good listing but not the best fit for us. After talking more about what we really wanted, Peter suggested another listing nearby. We saw the new apartment that day and loved it. It was big, bright and on a quiet street in Bay Ridge. Peter even arranged a second visit for us so we could measure the space before agreeing to take it. While we prepared to sign the lease, Peter was great about answering our questions in a prompt manner and handling the process professionally. He was also able to convince the landlord to lower the monthly rent, which was great! We are excited about our new apartment and owe a big thank you to Peter. Thanks Peter! -Michele D.
When I was selling my home in Marine Park in 2012, Marilyn Feinberg of Madison Estates came highly recommended to me by a colleague and friend. I was immediately impressed with her down to earth style, honesty, professionalism and extensive knowledge of the market in the neighborhood. We proceeded to form not just a working relationship, but a warm friendship as well. Marilyn made the process so smooth, that when my mom decided to sell her home earlier this year, we didn't hesitate to call Marilyn. And once again, she put us at ease with her ability to navigate the home selling experience, eliciting multiple offers within a short period, resulting in a completed sale after just a few months. Marilyn is there to explain all the ins and outs of selling a home, offering her advice, making realistic suggestions, and taking the time to answer all of our questions. To anyone in the market to buy or sell a home, Marilyn is a true pleasure to work with, I would very highly recommend her, and I look forward to calling upon her again, if the need arises in the future. - Christine Cirone
Choosing Marilyn as our agent was a no-brainer. We dealt with her when we were selling our first home and the whole process from start to finish was a pleasurable one. Marilyn is a highly ethical, moralistic and trustworthy person. She is a very hard worker and always has her client's best interests in mind. Our family never doubted that we were being represented honestly, fairly and professionally. In the future, we will continue to utilize Marilyn's services and refer her to our friends and relatives, as well. - Peter Canitano
Aside from Lisa's expertise in what she does, she was also a pleasure to deal with. Selling a home can be stressful, and it was a very comforting and reassuring having Lisa in our corner and on our side, handling all aspects of process of selling a home. A take charge person who will get it done. We feel like we made a good friend in her as well through the whole process! We would definitely recommend her! - Aaron and Devorie Zutler
I am writing to share the wonderful experience my girlfriend and I had with Peter Mancini during our recent apartment search. Throughout the entire process, we found that Peter was professional and conscientious. We immediately felt comfortable knowing that Peter had our best interests at heart. He was always honest with both the pros and cons of the apartment, and was straightforward and diligent during negotiations. Even after we signed a contract, Peter remained involved with our building’s management company to ensure we had a smooth transition into our new home. It is clear to me that Peter takes pride in his work, and his integrity is what separates him from other real estate agents I have worked with in the past. I can highly recommend Peter for anyone looking for a reliable and hard working real estate agent. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions regarding my experience working with Peter. Sincerely, Mitchell C Nelson MD
Veronica is wonderful. She found me a buyer immediately and when the first contract fell through because of the buyer’s mortgage issues, she instantly helped me get the house ready for another open house, found a second buyer and it worked out. It was a very quick process and I always felt she was available. -Sheila Connors
I had a great experience working with Madison Estates. I am thankful for Halyna's ability to connect which aloud me to understand her opinions and insight. Thank you Halyna for searching high and low and finding exactly what I wanted. I look forward to working with her in the future. Sincerely, Taylor Roach
With Halyna, everything works out. Halyna is very impressive and does what it takes to get the job done. She always had a bunch of showings and even though we were very specific about the information we needed for a thorough credit check, she always came up with the goods. She presents everything well and has found us great tenants. She manages the signings for us. We trust her. -Freddy Raymond
Halyna responded to our needs promptly and she was very proactive until we found our new place to create a home. Thanks! - Olga Noemi
As fate would have it, I first met Halyna in the elevator of a building where there was an open house. I did not have a realtor yet so we exchanged contact information and discussed what I was looking for. We kept in touch and within a week, she showed my the apartment that I will soon be moving into. Halyna is kind and genuine. She did not pressure me into any decisions and I truly felt that she had my best interest in mind. She was available to me day or night to answer any questions that a first time buyer, such as myself, would have. I will definitely be recommending her to my friends when they are ready to buy. Sincerely, Brittany Wilson
I recently had the opportunity and pleasure of working with realtor Bernie Schachner for the sale of my mom’s residence on East 15th Street, Brooklyn. Bernie found us a purchaser of the property in a quick turnaround! All through the process in making the transaction go smoothly, Bernie conducts himself in a professional manner. He is experienced, friendly, patient, courteous, cooperative and very pleasant to work with. He gave us suggestions based on his experience and helped us in every way imaginable. When we ran out of resources he came through for us in finding us what we needed to expedite the move and sale. Bernie went above and beyond what a realtor would normally do and for that, we are forever grateful. We had the opportunity to work with other realtors in the past but found Bernie to be the best one of them all! We made a friend through this sad and difficult time in our life and without Bernie and his team we would not have been able to make it a smooth transaction. Thank you Bernie for everything and we are forever thankful. We will always keep you in mind and will highly recommend you to others should they need a reliable realtor. Sincerely, Sal and Nancy Saporito
I'm so glad we chose Peter to show and rent our property. Peter provided my family and I with a level of honesty, comfortability, and professionalism. I was so impressed with his social skills and work ethic. He has a wonderful way of making you feel like you're in great hands. His services are seamless, the task guaranteed to be completed in a timely and efficient manner. I will 110% be recommending Peter for all my future realty plans. Thanks so much for everything, Peter! See you again soon! - Frank Sale
Marilyn was fantastic! My wife and I stumbled on our home in Flatlands by looking through newspapers. When we arrived at the open house, Marilyn greeted us with a smile that illuminated the house! She was professional yet very warm and friendly. She allowed us to take our time and thoroughly go through the home while answering every question we posed to her. Shortly after the open house we called Marilyn to tell her that we wanted to make an offer and she immediately reached out to the seller to begin negotiations. Marilyn was there EVERY STEP of the way throughout the process. She was like a mother figure to us, it was apparent that she really cared about us and she even gave us suggestions as to what we could do with the house. We’re grateful that Marilyn Feinberg was the agent for our home and we would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her. -Akwasi Prempeh
I feel one of the most important aspects of being a genuine human being is honesty. Without honesty I feel no relationship can be formed. I found that in Joanna. I found her to be very professional and at the same time warm and genuine. She went out of her way to accommodate my wishes. She made both the renters and myself feel very comfortable. She presented the apartment in the best possible light and explained most of aspects in a detailed manner. My overall experience with Joanna was positive not only on a professional basis but also a personal one. - Joe C
It was a great pleasure working with Peter Mancini from Madison Estates. Peter is a honest and efficient gentleman who kept his word through out the sale of my fathers home. Peter was available to answer all of my questions and took his time in making sure I was comfortable with the buyers. In the future, I look forward to working with Peter again on another sale. I would definitely recommend Peter Mancini to my friends and family who will be looking to sell or purchase a home. Sincerely, Tanya Thomas
Dear Peter, I want to thank for your help in the successful closing of the house despite a few hiccups along the way. Your patience was invaluable and I appreciate doing business with you. - Jane
It was a pleasure working with Joanna & Camille. They showed me 3 apts on Fillmore Ave. & I liked all of the apts but decided to take the one facing the park. I had a problem with Con Edison & Joanna got on the phone with Con Edison & resolved the problem for me. The meter should be turned on Sept 1st when I take over the apt. If anybody I know is looking to rent, I would highly recommend both Joanna & Camille to visit them at Madison Estates. Regards, Ann Young
During the purchase of my new home in Mill Basin I had the pleasure of working with Bernie and Mona of Madison Estates. These two individuals went above and beyond their roles in helping us purchase our new home. From the first moment we met them and throughout the entire process Bernie and Mona were pleasant, courteous and always had a smile on their face. Bernie responded to text messages within 2 minutes no matter what time of day it was. He and Mona were always available to let us into the house (numerous times) even at odd times. This helped us evaluate contractors prior to buying the house. Bernie even went to the building department (on his own) to acquire a drawing with neither lawyer/expeditor was able to locate it. I am happy to recommend Bernie and Mona to others. Sincerely Yours, Natan Weiner
I met Bernie and Mona from Madison Estates back in February when they came to my house to make a presentation on listing my property. They were very professional and showed me how they would market my property. I felt very confident that they knew what they were saying so I chose them for my agents. I had my property on the market for a year prior with another Brokerage. Bernie and Monday had my property in contract within 90 days. My closing took place today!! Madison Estates is the Broker to use without a doubt. I would refer them to anyone looking to buy or sell property. - Eric K.
Selling my parents' property was a difficult thing to do- it felt like giving everything up. Veronica is compassionate and wonderful. She was helpful and pointed us in all the right directions. - Louise Witthohn
Joe Baglio is a pleasure to work with. Joe does whatever it takes to the make the process as seamless and stress-free as possible. Joe brings a combination of market expertise, honesty and integrity that is very hard find. Joe represented me over the years when buying or selling a home in Brooklyn and has advised me many times on real estate matters along the way. I wouldn't think of dealing with anyone other than Joe and his team. -Frank Campisi
Peter was exceptional in his role as a dual agent. Even though he was originally the seller's agent, he represented my wife and I as well. He went above and beyond what I would have expected from a dual agent. I would recommend him without a doubt if you are looking for someone who would ensure your interests were cared for from the beginning of the process till the very end. -The Chancays
I was working with other brokers initially and felt Veronica gave me the most attention. She listened to all my concerns, made me feel calm and answered all my phone calls. Veronica managed the open house amazingly and potential clients and myself appreciated her lovely demeanor and smile. She was very patient and was able to get the exact client I wanted. This means a lot because the apartment I’m now renting out is the apartment I grew up in! -Donna Daniel
Dear Lisa, If there is such a thing as the International Realtor of the Year Award, you earned it hands down. As we have owned and sold property through the years, we understand the dedication and perseverance that you exhibited through a most challenging transaction. Two unexpected problems arose that under normal circumstances would have hindered the sale. We want the world to know how you helped, as my attorney had to take a delinquent tenant to court seven times to a final eviction. You met the Marshall and arranged for the locks to be changed because we live so far away. You were there to oversee the evicted tenant vacate the premises and pick up his belongings. Nobody could have anticipated that a pick up truck would hit the building almost causing the garage to cave in. You handled the arrangements for rebuilding the garage with two really good contractors, keeping them within the allowable budget. To complete the sale, you went far beyond what would be expected and you and Madison Estates were worth every bit of the commission you earned. All throughout, your positive attitude and personality put us at ease and we had lots of laughs in spite of this most frustrating situation. Paul and I highly recommend you and Madison Estates without reservation. Genuinely, Scarlet and Paul Cohen
Miss. Camille Composto, she is a true Professional! Her service was very good. She explained everything to me. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would give her a 10. Thank you, Camille! -Mikhail Bogomolny
I was the buyer. And from our perspective Joe was great to work with. We didn't have a broker and Joe was very responsive and prompt to our questions or whenever we needed to meet with him to view, re-view, inspect and re-inspect the property. -Alexander Klepach
It was indeed a pleasure working with Joseph - he was committed, competent and delivered on all promises. When the buyer - after signing - tried to add a few improvements to the house to the pre-closing list Joseph was as firm as I that we should inform the buyer that the deal was off. Needless to say, the buyer gave in on all demands after this resolute message. In summary, a real pleasure working with Joseph. - Bjorn
Dear Lou, When I first decided to sell my home I signed with a different broker and real estate company.. I spent six stressful months wondering why it did not sell. I didn't know if the problem was with my house or the the way the broker handled the sale. At the end of our contract I decided not to renew with him.. A friend of mine recommended that I call your company and speak to you. I did and immediately felt that we were on the same page. I signed a contract with you and I never looked back. My home sold in a short time and I was so happily relieved. I don't what or how you did what my other broker couldn't do, but it worked and was so wonderful for me. I just want to thank you so much. If anyone I know needs to sell a home, you are my first and ONLY recommendation.. Thank you again. Carol R.
I have had the pleasure of working with Peter Mancini from Madison Estates Real Estate Firm. My experience working with Mr. Peter Mancini went as smoothly I could have ever imagined. Peter made my experience of selling my home of 20 years in Brooklyn flow seamlessly he went beyond the capacity of a Real Estate Agent by shoveling snow build up on the resident being sold, he collected my remaining items and stored them in a safe place for me to pick up. Peter treated my home with respect and consideration, and performed in the highest professional manner that I have encountered. Upon the sale of my home I felt I was leaving a friend and not a business associate. I recommend Peter to anyone who is selling a home and is new to the real estate market. Peter made the transition from one home to another effortless. I was glad that selling my home in Brooklyn I found someone like Peter Mancini of Madison Estates. Sincerely, Nellie Gonzalez
Joanna was my parent’s agent when they sold their house last year. When I was ready to buy my first home there was no doubt in my mind that Joanna was the agent for me. She is professional, knowledgeable, assuring and calming. She never got tired of researching properties in Staten Island or going over the bridge. I always felt she “had my back”. To me and my family Joanna is a great Real Estate agent but she also became a good friend. - Gerard McEntee
Peter Mancini was an excellent Real Estate Agent. We signed a contract on Oct. 11, and business was booming in less than a week. At first we were ready to accept lower offers, but Peter guided us through the process, and soon found that we were in a bidding war for the property. We went to contract one month after signing with Peter, and sold the property 2 1/2 months later, $40,000 above the initial offering price. Peter was Johnny on the spot during the whole process. He even shoveled snow from the property during the January snowstorms. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone who is looking for that personal touch. -Anne-Lise & Arnold Olsen
Dear Lou, You are a real estate agent extraordinaire. Your tireless efforts in securing a buyer for my home were nothing short of remarkable. Scheduling open houses and using your multi-listing network vastly improved the speed at which my home sold. You made the process of selling as easy and as stress-free as possible. You are the only one going forward that my friends and family will use to sell their homes. Thank you again so very much, Mary Ann D.
Our family realized from the very beginning that Joseph Baglio is the "EPITOME" of a true, trustworthy and professional realtor. Joe was there every step of the way and made himself available in every way. Our Family;s association with Joe and the Madison Estate staff was exceptional in the sale of home (1778 East 28th Street, Bklyn N.Y.) Our family highly recommends Madison Estates and especially Mr. Joseph Baglio to family,friend & neighbors. -The Melfi Family
Excellent marketing by the Madison Estates team resulted in a quick sale to a well-qualified buyer. As an out-of-town owner, I appreciated Joe's willingness to assume some of the work to put my co-op in top shape for sale. I'm a happy client! Thanks to you all. -Judith Chaimson
Joanna is a true professional. She always tries to work around my schedule and she is extremely accommodating. Her knowledge and expertise was helpful every step of the way. Joanna has made buying a house a very positive experience. -Sarah Reich
Dear Joanna, Thank you for all of the trips you made over the bridge to help us find our perfect home! We're so happy it worked out & will be celebrating with your wine to toast to a great new year in our new home. Thanks for everything! - Jeralyn & Michael
Dear Pete, Thank you so much for all you help with finding an apartment. Even though it was Thanksgiving you responded quickly and were able to help us find exactly what we were looking for. We are very pleased with the building and the landlord. You even helped us save a couple of hundred dollars in rent. Thanks again for all your hard work and dedication. Sincerely, Mark Doty
I am pleased to write a note of referral for Veronica Livia. Veronica was a tremendous help to me during my recent apartment search. She listened to my needs and wants and clearly understood and respected my budget. She showed me multiple apartments in various neighborhoods with all her efforts focused on helping me find the right fit; She never lost sight of my budget and need for location and amenities. In the end she found me the most gorgeous apartment with outdoor space! When I gave my current landlord notice, he reduced my rent and I decided to stay put for another year. But it was Veronica's efforts dedication that afforded me that benefit. And next time I am looking for an apartment, either to buy or to rent, I will surely use Veronica Livia as my broker again! -Maryanne L
Peter Mancini and Madison Estates is synonymous with excellence. From his warm personality to his knowledge of real estate, my experiences with Peter have been wonderful. I strongly recommend working with Peter Mancini to buy or sell your home. - Lou Pento , Residential Buyer & Seller
I sold and more importantly bought a home with Lisa. She is a true professional, there wasn't a situation she didn't know how to handle. My wife would say all the time "I wish Lisa would also be the sellers broker & sellers lawyer", she would say that all the time because Lisa works fast and gets thing done. I really cant say enough good things about her but to sum it up, a true professional, very pleasant to work with, she's fast and gets things done. A sincere Thank You Lisa for everything you did for me and my family. -Igor Tkach
Joanna was very professional, informative, accommodating and patient. She made numerous trips from Brooklyn all the way out to Long Island to help us find our perfect home. She went above and beyond for us and for that we are truly grateful. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a home. -Joe & Nicole Galluccio
From the first time I spoke with her on the phone until the closing of the property itself, she was very informative, resourceful and even went above and beyond her duties in providing me all the necessary information, guidance and assistance. I am truly pleased with her work etiquette and will definitely keep her in mind when I know anybody who will be looking to buy and/or sell property in Brooklyn/Staten Island area. Thank you once again for all the efforts put into to getting my new co-op, which I am deeply satisfied and excited to have. - Louis M.
My association with Madison Estates and your representative Joseph Baglio was exceptional and totally professional. I could not be more satisied with Mr. Baglio in the sale of my home at 1412 East 52nd St. I would highly recommend Madison Estates and Mr. Baglio to my friends and neighbors. Regards and many thanks, George Olson
I was so overwhelmed yesterday, I didn’t get a chance to say what I wanted to. I really couldn’t believe it was happening. Thank you for everything you’ve done for me and my family, we are truly grateful. You are a true Professional above and beyond all. There wasn’t a situation you couldn’t handle and I am truly fortunate to have had you on my side when selling and buying! Thank you Lisa. -Igor Tkach
Camille C assisted us in selling and purchasing a new home for my extending family and had been with us for over two years. Throughout those two years we got to know each other and she always kept us updated with both our sale and keeping her eyes and ears open for a suitable home. Very friendly and wonderful personality. Highly recommend her. -M Ming Ma
I am a repeat client with Mona Nardone of Madison Estates and have always found her to be pleasant, knowledgeable & professional. If you're selling your home, she will make suggestions that will boost the marketability of your property to ensure you get the best price. If you're purchasing a home, she is very thorough with your wants and concerns. She had always made herself available for any question or concern that we had; this made me feel at ease in a very stressful market. We were so pleased with our experience with Mona, we have recommended her several times to friends and family. She is truly a gem! -June
We've been looking for a house for quite awhile. Mona is very patient with us. She makes sure the houses we are shown is a match for us and what we've asked for. We haven't found a house to negotiate for which is why I couldn't rate her in that but I'm sure she'll try her best. I recommend choosing Mona as your agent. -E Salman
We just completed the process of selling our home; thank you Lisa Lilker-Reich for making it happen! From the onset, Lisa took the burden (which seemed so heavy!) off of our shoulders and took charge; she handled each issue as it came along. Her optimistic, calm, cool approach was greatly appreciated - especially during tense times. We appreciated how Lisa always laid out our options and offered her advice when asked; we never felt stuck or lost. It was great how Lisa was easily accessible - via her office line, cell phone, texting - it was important for us to know that we were able to reach our realtor when need be. The fact that Lisa has much experience when it comes to tennants, mortgage rates, title, inspection, etc. was evident. In our situation, Lisa graciously took on the role of "preventing and managing conflict;" protecting friendships between some of those involved. The bottom line is, It has been an wonderful experience working closely with Lisa these past few months. Selling our home really wasn't so bad -- and Lisa, we thank you for that!! We highly recommend Lisa when it comes to selling or buying homes, and we would certainly work with her again in the future. -Zahava Tirnauer
We are very satisfied with Marilyn's work. She was very responsive, intelligent, patient and professional all the time. She showed us many houses in the Marine park area of Brooklyn. Described full process of buying in details. Helped to negotiate price with the owners. Helped making decisions during the process. Always returned calls and messages promptly. It was a pleasure working with her.
Marilyn was very helpful in helping me purchase my first house. I found a house that I like on Zillow that was listed by MadisonEstate, but it was already under contract. Marilyn helped me find similar houses in the neighborhood with similar profile and showed me six or seven properties over two weekends. She was very patient in showing me the properties, answering my questions, and walking me through the process of buying a house. She even helped me find a contractor to renovate the house. I was very satisfied with her services. -Them
Marilyn was the agent who helped us sell my parents' home. From the moment we met Marilyn she worked tirelessly to help sell the house. Marilyn was always available and returned calls in a timely manner. She negotiated the best and fairest deal for us. Her warm personality made her a pleasure to work with. Marilyn is the best and I wouldn't hesitate to call on her in any future real estate dealings. -Vales
Marilyn Feinberg strikes the perfect balance between professional and personal supportiveness. She is an attentive listener who incorporates your needs into her searches and then searches exhaustively on your behalf until those needs are met. She actively showed me upwards of forty properties without so much as a hint of impatience. She realizes that a home is not a small purchase, neither monetarily nor emotionally. Whether in person or on the phone, Marilyn is accessible and responsive. I recommend her most highly. -Katie
Marilyn is a pleasure to deal with. She is an honest, respectful, patient, encouraging, positive, responsive person, and a very efficient real estate broker. Her knowledge of the market is phenomenal. She looks out for you, gives good advice, yet not pressures you, and makes the process least stressful by expertly handling all parties involved. Marilyn is dedicated to her clients, and is a true partner to both a buyer and a seller in making the closing happen. -Paul Lerner
I was very satisfied with Mona. She listed my house and sold it fast. She did everything she said she would do to market and my sell my property. Very pleasant to work with. -Bee Colgan
Mona not only sold my home in 2012 I bought that same home from her 15 years ago. Her dedication to her field goes beyond excellent. Mona has a keen understanding how buyers feel about selling their home. I always recommend Mona. -Mzdelemah
I recommend Mona Nardone 100%. She showed me several homes in the past. I didn't buy because I lost my job. I'm back on track now, and will definitely be calling her in the near future. I liked her honesty. She spoke highly of the office where she worked, which gave me a good feeling, that I felt I was in good hands with.
I was looking to buy a house in Brooklyn for 2 yrs. I met Mona at one of her open houses. Right from the start I knew she would be the agent that wouldn't give up on me. She contacted me the next day! Mona is a total professional. Mona listened ,and understood exactly what we were looking for. No nonsense, didn't bring us to homes she knew was out of our price range. We looked at so many houses, not once did she give up on us. Unfortunately , my husband's job called for us to leave N.Y. We still receive holiday cards from her! I totally recommend her , if you want a successful experience, give her a call. -Judy Kahn
Joe B. sold my condo last year and let me tell you he really knows his stuff! He was professional, knowledgeable, and assertive. He was able to get me the right deal and was always there to answer any questions or concerns. I am happy to have found Joe. - Samantha Reth
Joe Baglio was very instrumental in selling my home in Brooklyn in 2007. I had interviewed several real estate sales professional before deciding to engage Joe. He proved to be well-versed in his profession, in addition to having a friendly demeanor. He treated the sale of my house as though it were his own. Needless to say we became fast friends and still keep in touch. So, when it came to selling my sisters house recently, I called Joe (no-brainer!). - Martin Newborn
I had the opportunity to meet and work with Joe Baglio for the sale of my mother’s home in Brooklyn New York after she passed away, it was difficult for me at that time because I lived in Phoenix Arizona and could not handle the every day things that needed my attention for the home, but Joe step in and helped with all that for me and with out any hesitation, I really appreciated his time, help and professional matter in which our house was sold, I would recommend him to friends and family. -Tom D
Joe sold my dad's house in Marine Park, Brooklyn. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable about the neighborhood, the market and always gave us excellent advice about how to deal with multiple situations that arose regarding the house. He did an excellent listing, with detailed colored photos that showed the house. He was extremely accessible, and handled everything regarding the sale of the house himself. I felt more comfortable being far away because he looked after the house, and went there a couple of times when I asked him to check on it. He was our "go to guy" for various referrals, including the cleaning of the house, and helped alot in this area. I would recommend him to anyone selling property in Brooklyn. - Sheila Feuer
Joe Baglio is the only realtor I have worked with who knows Brooklyn well. He knows all the neighborhoods, not just the trendy ones. He was there for me whenever I needed him–weekends, evenings, whenever. He gave me great advice and he helped calm me down when I was upset with the buyer's attorney's perpetual inefficiency. I would recommend Joe to anyone who wants to get the best price for their home, as quickly as possible. He also recommended an excellent attorney who was very kind, very efficient and even gave great personal advice. It was a pleasure to work with Joe and I plan to work with him again in the future. - Caitlin Vox
We just purchased our second home through Lisa. Lisa knows EVERYONE, and she keeps in touch with her current customers and former ones. She is friendly and professional. We saw that her former clients all liked her and trusted her, which made us comfortable right from the get go. She had her former clients in the neighborhood invite us into their houses to help us visualize a finished home, as the one we purchased needed lots of work. She was there every step of the way, willing and able to give advice and explain every issue that arose, both prior to the closing and after. Lisa is an exceptional agent and we highly recommend her for any home purchase. -Steven G.
Lisa was respectful, responsive and very knowledgeable. She worked very hard to find the right buyer for our house and she did it in a creative and timely manner. She was always available. I would very highly recommend Lisa as an agent. -Susan.
We worked with a few other agents from other real estate firms who did not listen to what we were looking for. After seeing so many other houses, we were not confident we would find what we wanted. When I explained to Camille what we were looking for, she was able to show us what we were looking for almost immediately. After seeing the house, 4 days later our bid was excepted and the process was started. We already recommended her to a friend of ours who also found a house with her. I would highly recommend her because she was professional but most of all listened to what we wanted and did not try to show us houses out of our budget or without our must-haves. She was very helpful and kind. -Cindy Ann
Camille was a wonderful person to work with during one if the biggest purchases of our lives. It was a a great pleasure to work with her. She was able to answer all of our questions and stay on top of homes that we were interested in. She made this difficult and tricky decision a joyful and pleasant time. We would recommend her to everyone! -Diana
Camille was passionate and professional regarding the sale of our house. She assisted in every aspect of the sale including inspection and referrals for necessary repairs. She was on site for every showing, leaving nothing for the buyer's agent to worry about. She was flexible with her scheduling and accommodated our every need. I don't think you could enlist a more honest and devoted real estate professional. -Cas Brog
My wife and I purchased and sold our first home and subsequently bought our second home with Lisa Lilker-Reich. Lisa Lilker-Reich made the whole experience painless. Her knowledge of the area and real estate business is unmatched. Her dedication and attention to her client's needs are exceptional. Her negotiation skills and her ability to ensure her client gets the best possible deal is admirable. Her accessibility and her willingness to explain every single detail when asked by her client is outstanding. She is friendly, and professional. If you are new in buying a house, she gives you a heads up where there is a need. Not only does she works with you on the whole searching, finding, and closing the house, but also she helps with post closing advice you need. She respects her client's needs and opinions, and lets the whole process revolve around them rather than trying to push any other agenda, which is what we see in many other real estate agents. This and all the above are clear signs that Lisa Lilker-Reich is an incredible agent and we would highly recommend her to anyone with any real estate needs. -SG.
After several years of searching, and working with different brokers, we finally bought a house that Lisa found for us. She helped us to negotiate a very fair price for the house, and was also very helpful throughout the contract-making process We are grateful to Lisa for all of her help, and would definitely recommend her to our friends.
Lisa is extremely knowledgeable about the Midwood/Madison/Marine Park areas of Brooklyn. She had a good sense as to what we were looking for and was gave us honest and accurate guidance. Would recommend her to others. -S Krinsk.
