I was blown away by Melissa, she was fast to respond, found multiple places for me to look at, leaned in to do research and always found the answer all my questions. I would high recommend her for finding your new home.09/2/2017 -Clayton Cullers

Melissa is unbelievably knowledgeable, caring, and adept. Working with Melissa is like working with a dear friend, who just happens to be a real estate expert. She tirelessly helped me for 10 months to make sure I found the perfect place for me. She not only knows NYC incredibly well (she can tell you all about each neighborhood, its history, and where to eat) but will find listings you cannot find online and are unknown by other brokers.

If you want a real estate agent who genuinely cares that you will be happy where you live, then definitely work with Melissa. From tracking down listings to negotiations to the board package, she goes above and beyond to find you the best fit at the best deal.

I had an excellent experience with Melissa. She is well organized and extremely responsive. You will be in capable hands working with Melissa. She organized tours of apartments in the most efficient manner and her follow-up was second to none. She assisted in the walk through before closing to ensure that everything was in well working order. I highly recommend working with Melissa.

-Susanne Lieu

OK, you could say that a SoHo coop should just sell itself, and what good is a seller's agent. I tell you what! Melissa was super professional and we could have never sold as quickly and comfortably as we did with her. We live out of State and Melissa took everything over. I could completely rely on her to be there on time for showings, advise us on what did and did not need to be upgraded. She even helped us out with an irate tenant who was difficult towards the end. She really WORKED for her percentage.

-Erika Ginsberg-Klemmt

"Melissa did a great job of helping us get into agreat apartment. She was on top of all communications (something that is hardto come by) and helped keep us organized as we visited many apartments and wentthrough the application process. I would recommend her to friends/family, andwould definitely work with her and her team again. ."

-Elizabeth Cancian

We spent about 1 year with Melissa, both looking for a new home and then selling our old home. Melissa was always available, very responsive and attentive, but not overbearing and pushy. We really enjoyed working with Melissa and recommend her to others.

-Marsha E Smith

It was such a joy to work with Melissa in finding the perfect home. She never lost her patience with us as we narrowed our search parameters, was extremely helpful and responsive, very knowledgeable about the Brooklyn neighborhoods we explored and supportive. Because of a difficult seller that eventually didn’t work out, our search took a lot longer than we would have hoped but Melissa did everything she could have done in dealing with that awful seller to make it work. When we all eventually realized this was an impossible seller, Melissa found us the perfect home within a few weeks. She negotiated for us with this seller and we couldn’t be happier with the process, the house or with her. Melissa is a delight to work with, as a person and as a realty. I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

-Dorothy Desmond

Melissa was so great to work with, she was so knowledgeable about so many areas in Brooklyn, we were looking in the Bed-stuy, Clinton Hill, and Forte Greene neighborhoods. She made us feel so comfortable through the process, always felt like we were in the hands of a real pro.

-Zillow user35970317

We met Melissa at an open house that she hosted in Ditmas Park when we were exploring the neighborhood before we had an agent. We enjoyed speaking with her so much, that we asked to work with her right away.

She has shown us properties in Park Slope, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and Bedford-Stuyvesant. She has excellent knowledge of the neighborhoods and the market and has given us great advice.

She is professional and personable and we feel like she has really made the most of our time. We appreciate how reliable and available she has been to us. She is always friendly, has an excellent sense of humor, and has really been a treat to work with.

-pvmiphone

I would highly recommend Melissa. She was always available whenever we needed her. She was professional and easy going. She knows the neighborhood and narrowed down our search, so there was no time wasted. It was obvious that she cares about her client’s needs and knows how to make a stressful situation much easier.

We cannot recommend Brad Malow highly enough! We first consulted with him pre-renovation and he gave us insightful ideas on what upgrades we needed to sell our apartment. Once we fully renovated, we interviewed 5 agents (including ones that are part of real estate TV shows) and Brad spent the most time with us, had the most thorough comparables, promised more marketing and gave us the highest target price. We liked his sincerity and go-getter attitude, so we went with him. He did a truly stunning video and in the end got us a record price for our building. We had a few bumps, and he was always on top of things and made things happen. Besides being a great agent-- he's a really good guy. We are so happy that we picked Brad. – Faith Bao

I have worked with many agents while searching for my dream apt in NYC, and I can truly say that Brad is unmatched in the industry on every level. Brad conducts himself with the utmost professionalism through every situation. He was open, honest, informative and kind throughout the entire process. It felt like I was going apt hunting with a caring friend rather than a business partner. He was always providing me with up to date information regarding the real estate market in the city as well as any relevant data on the properties we visited. Brad found me the most amazing apt that fit every single one of my requirements & desires. He is truly a standout! – Shirin Peykar

Brad is an outstanding professional with superb follow-up, creative and innovative sales initiatives using all opportunities to advertise our Greenwich Village coop, including social media, videos and other more traditional approaches and made us feel we were the only customers he had. We recommend him wholeheartedly. – Anthony Limberakis

Brad was incredibly organized, thoughtful, and responsive. He guided me through the entire process, explaining each step with care and patience. He put together well-planned and well-researched open house schedules, provided guidance on questions to ask and things to look for in properties, and provided expert advice on the offer and contract process. Throughout the complex process of purchasing real estate in New York City, Brad helped me understand each step and complete the transaction. Emails were always responded to quickly, and no question was ever too stupid. His dedication and patience were unfailing. I would highly recommend Brad to any prospective buyer. – Judy Reeves

I had been renting in NYC for 10+ years. The thought of actually buying a co-op or condo was not only stressful but nerve racking….but then I met Brad Malow!!Brad is not just a broker; he is an educator, a psychologist and a master of his craft all in one. He made sure we were always a step ahead of the game and that our necessary paperwork / financials were always in order while teaching us the “whys” and the “hows” along the way. Both my wife and I highly recommend Brad. Not only will he find you exactly what you are looking for, he will make the process as stress-free as possible along the way. – Daniel Wolman

I was introduced to Brad by a neighbor in my building who had worked with him a number of times before, and I’m glad I was given the recommendation. Brad was very realistic about what I was hoping to achieve in selling my property, and he took the necessary time to understand my timing and price goals regarding the sale. I’ve found that over the last five to ten years, it seems like anyone can become a real estate agent, and that makes finding a good one especially difficult. Aside from being a great person all around, Brad is one of the few professional real estate agents I’ve met in a long while. He understands that the agent-client relationship is based on mutual understanding, and he works to make that relationship a strong one so that the process of selling a home goes very smoothly. I’ve already recommended Brad to a number of friends who have bought and sold properties in Manhattan with him. They’ve all had success stories similar to mine, so I would gladly recommend him again. – Jonathan Fisher

We could not be more pleased with the level of service Brad offers and would highly recommend using him with confidence. He is extremely knowledgeable with NYC real estate and was very honest throughout the process. During our selling experience, he was very helpful in negotiations, presenting all the options for us to make the best decision together. He understands his clients and their needs in this fast paced NYC real estate market. Do not look any further, Brad is the broker you want to work with. – Andrey Kotikovsky

Working with Brad is like apartment shopping with an extremely knowledgeable friend. I bought and sold my Upper East Side co-op with him, and both times he was relaxed, informative, and he gave me great advice regarding the transactions. He also kept me up to date during the closing process for both the purchase and sale of the apartment, which I really appreciated. Because of my experiences with Brad, I’ve recommended him to some of my friends, and they’ve had success working with him, as well. He’s truly a great guide to have in today’s market. – Heidi Kaufman

Brad came highly recommended from a trusted work partner, and lived up to and beyond that. He is a true professional, a very personable hustler who has long-standing, credible relationships with other professionals and a sincere desire to help that was matched by his doing in every way. He had a number of reasons he could have declined working with me, and he chose to find positive solutions and looked for ways to say yes, not just add me to a list. I truly felt like I was the only person he was working with. He was prompt, always did exactly what he said he would, and more. I have bought and sold and rented and leased properties in various places around the US as an individual, and he is clearly in the rare category of someone I can offer an unqualified recommendation for others to trust in this very difficult process of looking for a place to live in NYC. Thanks Brad! – Daniel Garrison

Brad is a phenomenal broker. I can’t recommend him highly enough. When I was looking to buy property in Manhattan, Brad researched a number of listings before we even started searching, and he previewed some of them, as well, to make sure they were apartments I would be interested in. Because of Brad’s pro-active approach, I was able to find a property very quickly. Once the process of buying the apartment began, Brad was very focused and diligent, and he was always willing to accommodate my busy schedule. He worked hard to keep the purchase moving forward, and the whole process went very smoothly. – Marc Allen

I have worked with Brad to both rent an apartment and buy a co-op apartment and I can't imagine having gone through either of these processes without his knowledge and expertise. Brad thoroughly did his research on each great apartment he showed to me while also staying very attentive to my budget. What I most appreciated in both of my apartment searches with Brad was that he is quick to respond to emails and phone calls and makes sure to keep you in the know throughout the entire process. I have and will continue to recommend Brad to anyone I know in NYC who is looking to work with a wonderful real estate agent. – Keely Scarlatta

Brad is an all around great real estate agent, and I’d absolutely recommend him to my friends and family. He’s extremely attentive of his clients’ needs and he’s straightforward in regards to what his clients can realistically expect out of a deal. He thoroughly researches each property before showing it, and whenever a question or concern arises, his responses are punctual and thought out. Aside from being an adept agent, he’s also a very nice person. All of this makes working with him an easy and comfortable experience, and I really appreciated that comfort when purchasing my home. – Mindy Everett

During a short NYC visit, I had two days to find a place for a job relocation, and Brad found me a spot in just a few hours. No joke - we hustled to six different listings and, not only were they ALL formally setup with appointments, but ALL of them met my initial criteria. Brad was the perfect balance between an exceptional listener and a NY realist. Be ready to answer questions to make you think about things you never thought to consider when honing in on a place! – Ivan Hernandez

I worked with three different agents before I met Brad, and after our first day looking at properties together, I already felt much more comfortable with him than I had with any of the others. I was a first-time buyer, and Brad really understood my mindset. He was patient and informative, answering all my questions and explaining the process of purchasing real estate in the city. He displayed an incredible amount of knowledge, and I knew from the first day that he was the broker I wanted to work with. Brad really persevered in working with me. After we had looked at quite a few places, I decided I wanted to take a break for a couple months to reevaluate my situation. He stayed in contact the entire time, and when I decided to start looking for a home again, he was right there to help. We eventually found an apartment through one of his industry connections, which were a great resource throughout the closing process, too. I’ve already recommended Brad to others, and my first experience with him was so good that I’m currently working with him again to rent out my apartment. – Jennifer Yee

Brad was a fantastic real estate agent from start to finish. He was always very communicative and willing to work with us on every aspect of the negotiation. I trusted him fully, which is very rare in my experience in the real estate world, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. – Jamie Caplan

My husband and I were referred to Brad by a friend who had recently purchased a three-bedroom apartment with him and was very pleased with his work. For me, working with Brad was one of the best and easiest home-buying experiences I could have imagined. Brad was not only resourceful, but he was always available, completely honest with us about the market and the properties we visited, and had great advice. Even if we had a question at midnight and sent Brad an e-mail, he would usually write back within minutes. I think Brad’s biggest strength is his patience. I had heard horror stories about how agents in the city tend to be extremely pushy and pressure their clients into making premature decisions, but Brad wasn’t anything like that. He was always patient and understanding with us, and that really helped the process. I have already recommended Brad to others, as has my husband, and we’d continue to do so without reservations. – Christine Smith

Brad helped us in finding and finalizing the purchase of our home in NYC. Brad is extremely detail oriented and was instrumental in helping us navigate through the extremely complicated and twisted maze of rules/regulations pertaining to the NYC real estate. His knowledge and experience in this arena is simply superb and he helped us through the entire process (narrowing down our choices to the final signature). While there is no shortage of real estate agents in the city, to find someone with high integrity is a tall order and we were blessed to have him with us in the process. I highly recommend him! – Adil Rajput

I first used Brad as a broker in 2009, when he found tenants for my apt. (I decided to move to Brooklyn, but it wasn't a good time to sell my apt in Manhattan, so soon after the beginning of the recession). It was a relief back then to turn over the process of screening tenants to Brad. He found a couple who sailed through the board sublet approval process and were wonderful tenants. Never a late rent check and very few calls with requests over the five years they lived in my apt.
At the end of 2014, when they decided to move out, I turned to Brad again in the hope of selling the apt. Brad gave the apt a quick assessment and made suggestions of some easy and inexpensive steps I should take to improve the unit (painting the kitchen and bathroom, new toilet seat, etc). I know his suggestions made the apt much more marketable and his help finding a painter who could take on the job for not much money was appreciated. Once those fixes were completed, he took photos that made the apt look as good as it possibly could. Brad first listed the apt on a Tuesday, had an open house the following Sunday, and there was an accepted offer on Monday. The offer was slightly below asking but far above what I expected to get for the place.
Through the negotiations and contract phases, I felt like I had a trusted advocate in Brad. He kept me informed of any problems and, working with my attorney, he saw the sale through to its end. From the first visit to the closing, Brad was always quick to get back to me and also reached out regularly with updates. He is, truly, fantastic and I can't recommend him any more highly. He's also just a really nice guy—it was great to have a broker who I always felt was completely reliable, forthcoming, and who stayed calm even when I was nervous. - John Newton

Brad helped my husband and me find our apartment, and we recommend him unequivocally. We've had terrible experiences with brokers in the past, but Brad was the consummate professional. He listened carefully to us, and worked tirelessly to find us an apartment that met all our criteria. He was efficient and respectful of our time, scheduling as many appointments as he could during the windows of time we had available. He took photographs of all the apartments we visited, and he shared them with us so that we could make a fully considered decision before selecting a new place to live. He also understood and appreciated that we would need time to talk privately about the apartments, and he encouraged us to do so. Most importantly, he was honest, and was on our side. He did not try to talk us into an apartment that wasn't right, or was too expensive. He negotiated on our behalf, and gave us advice on how to negotiate when our lease is re-upped in a year. We trusted him, which made the process as painless as possible. – Megan Gaffney

We could not be more pleased with the level of service Brad offers and would highly recommend using him with confidence. He is extremely knowledgeable with NYC Real Estate and very honest throughout the process. During our selling experience he was very helpful in negotiations, presenting all the options for us to make the best decision together. He understands his clients and their needs in this fast paced NYC Real Estate market. Do not look any further, Brad is the broker you want to work with. – Christina Perrino

Brad is extremely knowledgeable about the NYC real estate market. He successfully navigated me through the process of buying the perfect investment property. He was very patient and clearly had my best interests at heart every step of the way. I'm sure things wouldn't have turned out as well without his expert guidance -- definitely recommend him. – Eric Hughes

Brad was very helpful in assisting my household in a cross-state move, electronically! He prepared us by organizing all of our documents prior to our search, which was great for when we found a place, we could pull the trigger on it faster! Brad is very responsive & knowledgeable and went above and beyond. He even brought our keys to my workplace when I couldn't leave due to an unexpected meeting! Highly recommend. – Christine Kendall

Brad was a go-getter and had many apartments for us to look at. I felt he understood what we were looking for and was attuned to our concerns. He was very knowledgeable of the area and answered all questions. He responded quickly to e-mails and texts. I would certainly recommend him to others. – Crystal Wagstaff

I give the absolute highest recommendation in working with Brad. He guided our Chelsea co-op purchase so smoothly, so swiftly and so effortlessly. We initially looked at a number of properties and found ourselves in a few multiple offer situations. Brad was a stellar guide in helping decide when to walk away and when to step up to the plate. As a result, we ended up with a fantastic apartment that he negotiated extremely well. He took extreme care in preparing our board package (which was so important to us as it contained so much personal information). He guided that preparation first-hand and was able to answer our questions and alleviate our concerns with divulging all of our financial and personal information. Brad is an expert in his field and it certainly helps that he is very easy to work with. In a city with so many agents, he is a stand-out. I cannot recommend him highly enough. – Aron JanssenBrad was a tremendous guide and supportive person throughout the entire process. His knowledge and experience helped me develop a workable strategy to search for an apartment and this strategy eventually led to me buying an apartment. I think this was quite an accomplishment given we had to work within pretty tight budgetary requirements. Brad was able to match what I could afford with what I want which is no small feat given I was looking in lower Manhattan and the western neighborhoods of Brooklyn and I'm a very picky person.
Brad is an excellent realtor but what makes him a great partner in the process is his ability to listen, understand what you want, help you understand what you can afford, and identify apartments that suit your desires and your budget. I would also note I chose the word "partner" intentionally as Brad truly partners with you in your search and works closely with you to find the right place to call home. I think that style of working and that attitude is hard to find.
I have recommended Brad to friends and to one of my most important clients. Everyone in the apartment hunt should be lucky enough to work with Brad or someone like him. – Trent Lethco

I had a great experience working with Brad to purchase my co-op. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all stages of the process. One of the most refreshing aspects of working with Brad, which I greatly appreciated, was the fact that he was not pushy. I felt that I received his honest opinion regarding potential bids and I never felt like he just wanted to make a sale. I believe he wanted to help me find the right place and was there to help guide me through my first purchase. I recommend Brad for anyone seeking a real estate broker and will definitely be in contact with him for any future transactions I may have! Buying a home is definitely stressful, but Brad helped make the process smooth. – Lynn D’Eugenio

Brad recently helped my husband and I find a co-op rental apartment in Brooklyn. We had a very positive experience working together. He is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and was always willing to explain each step of the process so that we felt informed and comfortable while making decisions. Brad is responsible, prepared and patient, always promptly responding to emails, phone calls and even late night panicked text messages! He is sincerely dedicated to helping his clients find their perfect home. We highly recommend him! – Brooke Lurie
