As the leaders in townhouse sales since 1972 and the #1 boutique firm in Manhattan (Real Deal Magazine, 2009, 2010, 2011) Leslie J. Garfield & Co., Inc. provides the market knowledge, time commitment, and negotiation expertise needed to satisfy the most discerning buyer. Because each broker specializes in a particular neighborhood, Leslie J. Garfield is able to provide profound insight into the Manhattan-wide townhouse market. We not only keep you informed of the latest trends and the newest listings, but, are also able to match up buyers with sellers who may not have chosen to market their properties in the public domain. And, because of our team approach to buying and selling real estate, buyers are able to tap into the networks and contacts of all the firm’s brokers.
In addition to giving expertise, a broker gives time. When selecting a broker it is common sense to deal with one who is fully committed to serving his or her clientele. Staying on top of an active market means tracking daily sales, following price reductions, new listings, etc. on a 7 days-a-week basis. At Leslie J. Garfield you will find brokers are who are on call 24/7 and who are invariably good listeners. Once a broker develops a sense of what a customer seeking, he or she will scour the market in order to find the building that best fits the customer’s needs.
Once the ideal property has been located, Leslie J, Garfield manages the purchase process. The process of purchasing property has become much more involved as the prices for real estate have increased. Today, it is the norm for transactions to contain a series of contingencies that often involve provisions for structural inspections, condo-by-laws review, hazardous waste material issues, lead paint, etc. An experienced broker goes beyond the initial negotiating dynamics and document execution and is able to advise the client on the business implications of these contingencies.
