RICHARD ’S HAPPY CLIENTS

  • Alexander Kusnier
    “I was faced with the daunting task of selling my NYC apartment while being based in Florida during the pandemic. Richard used his extensive experience and detailed knowledge of the NYC real estate market to prepare the apartment for a quick sale over the asking price after just one open house. Among other things, he hired and supervised the movers, painters, and contract-workers, and even managed the shipping of valuable artwork from the apartment to my home in Florida. I''ve never encountered a real estate agent who offered such excellent and comprehensive service. He delivered exceptional results! I highly recommend Richard and will refer him to NYC friends whenever the opportunity arises.”

    “My wife inherited her father''s condominium, which we wanted to sell. The apartment had not been updated in decades and we were prepared to take what we could get as it was a difficult time in NY, early in the pandemic. We met with Richard and he suggested doing a cost-effective renovation which he said would increase the value and also make the apartment sell faster. Richard brought us some bids and we were surprised at what could be accomplished at a reasonable cost. We decided to proceed, and the results exceeded our expectations! We were able to price the apartment 15% higher than we originally intended (renovation cost only a 1/3 of that!) and we went under contract within two weeks at the full asking price. Thank you Richard, we will be recommending you to our friends!”

    “Thank you Richard! Well done! All cash, 5% over ask after just three days on market. Can’t ask for more. Plus, you recommended a terrific attorney and we closed right when you said we would. We will definitely be calling if we need to buy or sell again. ”

    “I’ve worked with many realtors in my 45 years as a CPA and can unequivocally say “you are the best”. Your knowledge of all the areas relating to an estate sale of a professional office/residence enabled you to take control of the process and deal with the complexities, including: • Dealing with the co-op Board • Legal documentation required • Repairs, upgrading and staging the unit • Selecting qualified buyers and helping them with the board approval process Also, you did this during a pandemic year that put restrictions on your ability to work the system. I can’t thank you enough and please use me as a reference anytime.”

    “We hired Richard Murray to sell our NYC apartment and it was the best decision we could have made. The apartment had been previously listed with another agent (with a major brokerage) for 6 months. Early on we had two offers fall through and then experienced the frustration of diminishing interest and no offers. After signing with Richard things changed rapidly. He suggested a small, strategic price reduction and created new materials which included some beautiful photography. He took an aggressive marketing approach which included two open houses per week. After just ten days on market he brought us 4 competing offers, and this was in the middle of January. Richard handled negotiations with the buyers perfectly and we went under contract at a price that was higher than our prior asking price. Richard stayed closely involved all the way to closing, and when the sale hit some bumps in the road due to our management company, he was there finding solutions. We would highly recommend Richard to anyone looking to sell or purchase a NYC apartment. Please feel free to contact me if I can be further assistance. ”

    “It is my pleasure to highly recommend Richard Murray of Keller Williams, New York City. As executor of an Estate, I needed to sell a Lincoln Towers co-op apartment.

    My first step was to hire a real estate agent. I blocked out a Saturday and met with six different agents at her apartment. I’ve been involved in a few real estate transactions over the years and strongly believe that the initial listing price is the most important item to get right. Of the six agents I met with, three were “winging it” and easy to rule out. Of the remaining three, one insisted I list at 10 percent above equivalent comps, another felt just as strongly that it list for 20 percent less. Rich was the only one with a sound rationale for his recommended listing price. Rich also assured me he would create a comprehensive plan to prepare and market the apartment for sale. I hired Rich and he and his team exceeded my expectations, something not easy to do.

    The apartment had not been updated in some time and needed work. Rich presented me with multiple bids to paint it, refinish the floors and fix damage from a previous leak in the bathroom. In consultation with Rich, I chose one of the bids and the process began. Rich and his team supervised all the work and obtained all necessary co-op board approvals. I didn’t need to do a thing. About a month later the apartment was ready and looked great. Rich did all this at no extra charge. He also fronted the money for the work and I reimbursed him when the apartment sold.

    About 10 days after listing, which included two open houses hosted by Rich, we had multiple offers and agreed on one that was 2 percent above asking price. Rich counseled me strongly to accept an offer from the buyer most likely, and best positioned, to close the deal. It was a textbook execution by Rich. A few weeks after accepting the offer, the March Covid lockdowns began. Rich could not have been more prescient in his advice on who’s offer to accept. Yes, the buyer was still nervous, but Rich held the deal together and we eventually closed at the full contract price.

    I can’t say enough about Rich and his team. Talk is easy, but Rich and his team actually delivered. Going forward, I will refer all of my clients with New York City real estate needs to Rich. ”
