Bob and Katie Goodman
Lance is a consummate professional. He quickly understood our needs, likes, and dislikes. He is detail-oriented, straight-forward, appropriately assertive, and pleasant. We have recommended him highly to close friends.
The Roberts Family
From start to finish, Lance exceeded our expectations as we were selling our townhouse in the West Village. He developed an impressive marketing strategy that resulted in our accepting an offer as soon as our house went on the market for sale.
Lance is straightforward, knows his neighborhoods, and knows how to handle stressful situations that won our bid for the apartment that we own and love today.
Maha and Mark Cheney
Over the last 15 years of corporate relocations, we have moved more than a dozen times. Of all of the moves, Lance is by far at the top of the list of Manhattan agents we’ve used. He is knowledgeable on landlord/tenant laws, an expert on the New York City market, highly personable, and a tough negotiator. My wife and I would joke that he responds to our questions within seconds of our sending them.
Mike and Kristina Cassidy
Not once did Lance pressure us on an apartment, instead he approached the home buying process with determination and resourcefulness. With intense focus, he was able to negotiate a deal for us far below asking price. Lance diligently worked through multiple rounds of negotiations for our purchase. He held the line on our final offer and got the job done. As our lawyer put it (who has worked with him in the past), “He is an assassin in the war room.”
There isn’t an emoji that truly expresses the dedication and professionalism that one receives from Lance. You can relax and let him take charge of the process. As a repeat client, the experience was as genuine and pleasant as a real estate transaction could be. He proved that when buying on the low or high end of the market he was the agent to work with as he performed professionally to the job that needed to be done.
A coworker recommended Lance to us when we were looking for our first apartment in Chelsea. She specifically said that Lance is the “finest broker” in the city. After a few days of going out and seeing a handful of apartments with Lance, we saw that she was right. After two months of intense searching, we ended up with a perfect coop apartment that Lance found for us.
This is my second time using Lance as my agent in New York. The first time in buying, this time in selling. Thanks to his brilliant insight and expertise, I had multiple offers on our coop apartment within the first week. I sold for over my asking price. The process was seamless and efficient, the service was helpful and strategic, and the outcome was better than I had even hoped.
Meya and Dan Circa
Lance was so caring, knowledgeable and straightforward. The buying process can be quite stressful but Lance explained everything we needed to know and always returned our calls and emails immediately. We really got to know him well and gained not just an excellent agent, but a lifelong friend.
Billy and Neha Nand
Lance gave us great advice, was extremely responsive, made great recommendations to us (e.g. lawyers, mortgage brokers) and was patient with all of our questions. This was our first time buying a place and Lance made the process easy.
I am pleased to recommend Lance to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in New York. Hands down, Lance is the best in the business.
Jisselle and Cooper Coy
Lance is not just our broker, he is now our lifelong friend and an uncle to our children. We built trust and connections through our six months of looking at apartments together. Thank You!
Most respectable and straightforward broker in the city!
