I had an absolutely amazing experience with LoHo realty. I searched high and low for an apartment to buy in NYC, only to find my money would get me a studio in most other neighborhoods. Friends suggested I look down in this area, as they live here. Raved about it. We went to an open house, I found a great place and made a "low" offer. I spoke with Jacob for quite some time about what I wanted in an apartment, my price range, etc. He suggested I meet him the following day as he was getting a new listing that was in my range. I fell in love with the place (and purchased it), but he showed me 4 other apartments that day to compare/contrast. It was an absolutely easy transaction, I was walked/talked through all the steps involved as I've never purchased an apartment in a co-op before.
I recommend LoHo realty! They're awesome!
