We have worked together on both sides of the process — as both buyer and seller — and if you are looking for a resolute professional with a knack for excellence, clarity and efficiency along every step of the way, William is your man.”

Kater D.

“We highly recommend William. His experience with the New York City real estate market was clearly evident throughout the sale of our apartment, including setting the right sale price, finding the buyer quickly, and making the entire process seamless. William surpassed our expectations by independently staging our apartment to show its full potential.”
