TESTIMONIALS
It was such a pleasure working with Derek and Aaron. From our first encounter with them, I knew that they had our best interest in mind. They were incredibly knowledgeable about the area we were looking in (BPC) and provided so many valuable insights to us because of that. As well, both of them are MBAs with previous experience in financing and /or real estate which can be invaluable in the buying / selling process as well in the overall negotiation process.
Our search was focused on Brooklyn and Manhattan and the LG Fairmont team understood both markets very well, which is a rare thing. We wanted a townhouse in Brooklyn or a 3 bed in Manhattan and they provided us with real value during our search. We became friends during the search and still go out to dinner with them from time to time. I highly recommend them if you are a numbers person and like to see things explained and laid out in that way. The heads of the firm are fellow alumni so that doesn't hurt!
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!
