Can anyone recommend a good buyer's broker? I'm ready to purchase a studio (cash) in the $220-$250k range.

Asked by Nycstudiobuyer, New York, NY Tue May 5, 2009

I'd like to close between now and mid-August. I plan to owner occupy for the next two years, but need to purchase a co-op or condo that I could definitely sublease after that. I am open to any neighborhood in Manhattan below 125th street. If anyone can recommend brokers who are experienced in dealing with buyers with my requirements and price range, I'd be grateful if you could pass on their contact info!

Co-ops vary in their subletting policies. Some are liberal, others are not. Ideally you would want a condo for the purpose of future subletting, but your price range limits you to co-op studios. You should definitely get starte now if you plan to purchase between now and August because buying a co-op can take 2-3 months. Ideally you should work with an agent who is experienced with first-time buyers, can recommend a great lender, and has a lot of experience with co-op board packages and preparing you for board approval. SInce you are directly asking for a referral - I would be happy to work with you. Feel free to call or e-mail.

Please give me a call, I can refer you to a couple buyers agents to talk to and consider. If you want to close by mid-August, let's not waste any time!
Anyone I refer will be trained and certifed as a relocation specialist and will be specific to the area you are looking.

I hope to hear from you soon!
