    “When we decided to sell our apartment, calling Alex was an easy decision. Although we don’t live in New York City anymore, he was always in contact, and we were able to sell the home within weeks of our tenants moving out (who he got for us two years earlier when he rented our apartment after we moved). He oversaw the condo board application process, helped us get a real estate attorney, and sold the apartment for OVER DOUBLE what we paid in 2011! He goes above and beyond. And since he is a resident of Downtown Brooklyn, I find it hard to believe any one could have done better. Thank you Alex for TWO jobs well done.”

    "Alex was our rock. We rely on him for important real estate transactions and we trust him completely. Since we live overseas, it is essential to have a real estate broker with a "can-do" attitude, limitless energy, and an extremely savvy knowledge base. Alex managed a tricky transition from one tenant to another in our Brooklyn property, seamlessly communicating with the outgoing tenants, building management, the incoming tenant, and us. On multiple occasions he's gone above and beyond expectations, all while maintaining flawless near-instant communication, even across foreign time zones!"

    "Alex has made us realize he is a true diamond in the rough. He has seamlessly and effortlessly found 2 separate renters for us over the last 2 years, both of which have been ideal tenants. His promptness and responsiveness to whatever situation arises is bar none the best I have experienced in almost any service based industry. Alex represents precisely what great reliable service should be. I can unequivocally offer my highest recommendation for Alex, if only there were anything higher to offer!"

    “I contacted several brokers but ended up working with Alex because of his great attitude. He impressed me with his friendliness, honesty, and excitement. Despite a long exhausting apartment hunt, he never stopped tirelessly working and was always positive. He quickly got a feel for what type of place I was looking for and set up numerous viewings. Sometimes we would spend the better part of a day looking at places in different neighborhoods across Brooklyn. Since I was new to many of these areas, Alex's wealth of knowledge was super valuable. However, what is most impressive about Alex is how much he cares about you. His attentiveness in all the small things makes him an absolute pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great broker.”

    "First and foremost, Alex is a professional who brings something to the table that no other broker I've worked with in NYC has, genuineness. Nothing he brings to the table is fake. Coming from a small town, I needed to work with someone who shares the same attributes yet has true NYC knowledge and experience, so that my expectations can be met - not managed. There's a big difference between the two, and Alex made the division. It showed me he genuinely cared about me, my financial situation, and my living situation. Furthermore, and the main reason why I've referred him to friends, is because with Alex, the job doesn't stop after paperwork is filed - Alex will continue to care and make sure everything is exactly the way it was expected to be."

  • Mike & Micheline

    “We are very happy we chose Alex Mahgoub to handle the sale of our property at 280 Park Ave South. We had every confidence that he would handle the transaction in a professional and expedient manner, since Alex has leased out the same property for us several times over the years. Each time we listed our property for lease we had offers within days and when we listed for sale we had two offers within weeks and the property was sold without any hassles. It has always been a pleasure to work with Alex and we can highly recommend him without reservation.”

    "Alex is a miracle worker. My husband and I needed to find a rental for a quick move to Brooklyn. We were fortunate enough to find Alex, who helped us achieve our goal of a great new apartment in a mere 1.5 days. But it wasn't without a huge amount of work on his part. He listened well to what we were looking for and then assembled a large number of apartments to view that he thought would meet our needs. He is well organized and efficient. He responds promptly to questions. He is also a pleasure to run with...he knows the city well and was an excellent guide to two newcomers to the area. We couldn't be more happy with the service he provided. He is honest, hard-working, and eager to serve. What more could one want in an agent?"

    “Alex impressed us with his professionalism, knowledge of the market, and responsiveness from the moment we started corresponding prior to our move to New York. He went above and beyond to find us an apartment that fit our budget and our wish list while guiding us through all steps of the process with ease. He is extremely hard working and service oriented with a keen understanding of finding the 'perfect fit' for the customer. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and we recommend him without hesitation.”

  • Tatiana & David

    "Alex was recommended to us by a friend, which already spoke volumes about his qualities before we'd even met him. Alex did an amazing job - he quickly understood exactly what we were looking for; organized and guided viewings (any time, day and night, seven days a week, he was available); and we were soon only seeing exactly the type of property we had in mind (and we were very demanding clients). Alex rapidly found us our dream apartment in the West Village, but there were complications - as coming from overseas, we were atypical renters without (at the time of looking to sign the lease) the normal basics such as a US bank account, cell phone or social security number, and even more problematic, there were some particular sensitivities stemming from the landlord's future plans for the building. Alex helped us address and overcome all of these hurdles, and we moved in within a week of seeing the apartment (despite there being competing applicants). Alex was the consummate professional - always organized and available - and on a personal level, was a complete gentleman and an absolute pleasure to work with. We have no hesitation in recommending him."

  • Kelly & Laura

    "Alex Mahgoub represented us twice as our real estate broker. The first time he helped us rent out our high-end 2-bedroom apartment in Manhattan. We were under a very strict timeline and needed to get the place rented in under 2 weeks so we would qualify for a mortgage on another place. He was able to utilize his network to get our place rented in a really short period of time and for a great price. He was also great to work with because he is really knowledgeable and also has a positive attitude. A few years later we decided to sell that exact place and so we looked to Alex because we had been so pleased with his work previously. Again he did not disappoint. He is extremely hard working and knows how to work with buyers to get them interested. This was a tough sell because, although it was a beautiful 21st story apartment, it seemed dated to some of the new construction that was going up all over Gramercy and Flatiron. But Alex kept showing and meeting with buyers and after a couple of months we had an offer in hand at a great price – in fact it was one of the highest sales in an already high-end building. I would recommend Alex to anyone who wants to sell or rent their place with a hard working, knowledgeable and charming broker. "

    "We interviewed multiple brokers to rent out our apt and Alex was the most professional, knowledgeable and eager. He handled the entire process seamlessly (photos, listing, open house, background checks and renter approval) for us while we were traveling abroad. Alex found the perfect tenants and even offered to be the main point of contact for us and the renter should any issues arise since we live out of town. We highly recommend Alex and would work with him again for all of our NYC housing needs."

    "I was just about to give up on my search for buying an apartment after many failed attempts before I enlisted Alex for his assistance. Other brokers just didn't seem to care as much about my search and were sending me listings without any real thought and just didn't feel customized to what I actually wanted. Alex made me feel like he not only listened but applied everything I told him to his search. Within one week of meeting with him, after months of looking with others, Alex found me the apartment I am very happy to call home now! The experience with Alex was just completely different. He is extremely responsive by e-mail and even after signing contracts Alex was there for me the whole time through out the process since it was my first time. There is no one else I would have wanted to do this with knowing how well he ended up treating me and of course how happy I am with the final result.”

    "I cannot thank Alex Mahgoub enough for helping us find a tenant for our apartment. We had to find a renter during the slow winter months, and even though he warned us it would be difficult to find a tenant quickly, this did not stop or slow Alex down. He made us feel like we were his only clients and went above and beyond to help us. Alex understood our concerns about finding a tenant, and went out of his way to put us at ease about the process. He was always available when we needed him and he is the perfect mix of professional and "fun". Alex is a pleasure to work with and I do not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone who needs them."

    "There aren't enough words to describe what a great experience I had with Alex. It put me at ease to know that he shared the same goals in renting out my apartment and the entire process was seamless. He handled my tenant like a champion as she was possibly the most difficult human one could encounter. His knowledge and resources were endless and his work ethic is impeccable. Going above and beyond, Alex was consistent and dependable for his responses, impressively patient and most importantly, he was extremely comforting in our time of stress. There is no doubt that he is one of the best out there and we were lucky to have him."

    "Alex Mahgoub was a lifesaver in my apartment rental search when I was looking in an unfamiliar neighborhood with a short time frame. Alex is energetic, responsive, communicative, and hard-working - all of the best qualities in an agent. I felt extremely comfortable leaving my search in his hands. He carefully listened to my requests and requirements, and worked hard to schedule viewings during my limited availability. I ended up quickly renting an amazing apartment with no hassle on my part. Working with Alex was very enjoyable and he made a often-frustrating experience painless for me. I would recommend him without the slightest hesitation."

    "Finding an apartment is overwhelming in the fast paced NYC real estate market: lots of walking, stairs, each street with its own vibe and many brokers who just don’t care if they rent to you or the next guy. I was looking for an apartment for a while, almost every Saturday alone for two months. Then I started working with Alex and he really helped me narrow down on what it was that I liked after each apartment and kept the focus clear for me. He was so organized and always asked the right questions on my behalf when I was tired or overwhelmed. We saw 13 apartments on day one and 6 on day two. That’s my kind of search! He is a great mix of fun and energy but is very warm, understanding and smart. I have dealt with brokers before and I never felt like I knew their intensions or that I could openly talk about what I liked and disliked. Let’s face it, the NYC real estate market is crazy and you don’t want to have to go at it alone. Alex is there as guide, a source of reason and a friend if you need it. He’s a well rounded person that I loved being around and am thankful that I have him as my broker."

    "Alex represented the sellers when we bought our home this past summer. We were looking without a broker, so we ended up interacting with Alex quite a bit. Long story short, Alex is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. He always showed up to appointments on time, always responded to emails within minutes, never made any mistakes, and always followed-up as promised. Alex took good care of us, and I strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a hard working and knowledgeable broker."

    "Alex Mahgoub is a fantastic realtor that I would recommend to any family or friends. In fact, when my husband and I griped about our endless apartment hunting, a coworker recommended Alex to us. The rest is history! Alex made an otherwise stressful, time consuming process painless and even fun. He is responsive, well organized, connected, and endearing. He made plenty of time for us and helped land us a beautiful apartment almost as soon as it became available Each time we met, we received a concise folder with all the information we needed about the apartments we would be all be seeing that day. His feedback is invaluable when there is so much to consider. For busy New Yorkers who want the best of everything in the quickest time possible, look no further than Alex Mahgoub. We are so satisfied with his expertise that he will be the first person my husband and I call when we are ready to embark on our forever apartment."

    "Alex was a phenomenal broker and friend. When he showed us the apartment we currently live in, he actually stood back and allowed us to experience it first without trying to "sell" us on it. This showed that Alex truly cared about us finding the right fit and it allowed us to find the place that truly spoke to us. (We ended up finding our new apartment upon first showing!) Alex tirelessly answered any questions we had and took the time to get to know us and what our priorities were in looking for a new apartment. Even while we waiting for approval and our paperwork to go through Alex maintained communication regularly, assuring us he'd quickly update us with news, and he did! When we did get the apartment, it felt like Alex was just as excited as we were. Even after move in Alex helped us with some issues we had with our A.C. and other small inconveniences. Alex truly went above and beyond and maintained a professional yet friendly demeanor the entire time. We would recommend him to anyone!"

    "I can’t imagine the nightmare relocating from the West Coast would have been without Alex. From our very first phone conversation he did a great job of understanding what I was looking for in a homewhile coaching me through the NYC rental process. When I arrived for a short apartment-hunting trip, Alex was knowledgeable, reassuring, and willing to walk uphill both ways through the snow – literally – to ensure I found a rental in the allotted time. I was able to make an offer on an apartment that exceeded my expectations, and return home knowing that Alex was handling all the details and would ensure my remote lease signing happened without a hitch. I’ll definitely be recommending Alex to all friends and colleagues who are moving in or to New York. Thanks again. Truly, this would have been an utterly miserable experience without you."

    "Alex is an outstanding realtor. Moving from Boston on short notice we had just two days to find a dog friendly apartment and we could not have done it without Alex. Not only did he show us some amazing apartments, he was a great ambassador for the city and helped guide us through the very annoying parts of actually renting a place. We looked at 20 apartments in 2 days and I don't think that anyone else could have pulled this off. Alex is the best."

    "Excellent Broker. Alex Mahgoub recently helped my wife and me find a great place in Brooklyn, NY. I have never worked with a real estate broker who was better than Alex at knowledge of the market, ability to listen to my needs, and just plain friendliness. Alex is simply the best."

    "Alex was recommended to me by a work colleague who had a good experience with him. He did not disappoint. I was moving to Manhattan from out of town, and Alex did an excellent job of taking care of the details and, most important, gauging what I wanted in an apartment. Because most of this work was conducted via email, I only met Alex at the first appointment. He was on time, well organized, and patient. I had come to New York for three days specifically to find an apartment, and we wasted no time. By the end of the three days, I found something that met my needs and was within my budget. Because of this positive experience, I recommended Alex to a colleague who will be moving to New York in the fall."

    "Alex has a kind, patient, and professional attitude. When my husband and I decided to rent out our condo apartment and move across the country, I really dreaded the process, but working with Alex Mahgoub made it a seamless and even pleasant experience. From the first meeting, to the listing photos, showings, and paperwork, I really felt like Alex cared about our best interest and treated us like family. He even served as the point of contact after the tenants moved in and a few repairs needed scheduling. My husband and I have even started calling him our "guardian angel." I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a world-class broker. New York real estate can be so scary and uncertain, but with a guy like Alex on your side, you're in really good hands."

His responsiveness was impressive, and we were able to find an apartment in such a short period of time, it made the process so much less stressful. Apartment hunting in New York is usually a series of horror stories, but ours was the complete opposite. We would absolutely work with him again and would recommend him to anyone."

    "Alex has been a pleasure to work with. He dedicated a lot of time and effort to our search, listened to us, and helped us find the place we wanted. I highly recommend him. He is energetic, professional, responsible and personable. The New York real estate market is very difficult to navigate, especially for somebody coming from somewhere else, but Alex really went above and beyond to help us find our way through it."

    “The most critical attributes of a real estate agent, I believe, are seriously deep knowledge of the market, an intuition and analytical ability to go along with that knowledge, and a sense of strategy. I think this is what really determines how much you make or how much you pay and whether you are going to be happy with your sale or purchase. Monica and Alex have all those critical attributes. They put their knowledge and skills to work effortlessly and impressively. And, on top of that, they are better at the fundamentals like marketing, photos, managing relationships, etc., than others. I am sure that, for me, there was truly no better choice than Monica and Alex. Nobody could have done better.”

    "As New York newbies relocating from Washington, DC we were very lucky to connect with Alex on our apartment search. He is knowledgeable, inspires trust and is a lot of fun to work with as searching for a place in New York requires a sense of humor and a lot of optimism depending on your budget. Our search was very successful thanks to his dedication and professionalism. We will definitely work with Alex when we are ready to buy in NY."

    "It’s rare to meet someone who is exceptional at what they do. Alex Mahgoub is just that - exceptional. We sold our unit at 280 Park Avenue South in the midst of turmoil and Alex was like a light in the storm. Not only was he extremely professional and courteous, but he also had a way of looking at whatever situation was presented (i.e. pricing, offers, negotiations) with a clear view that never pushed an agenda. It truly felt like Alex was working with us throughout. We were very lucky to have had him as our broker to the sale."

    "From start to finish, Alex was an absolute joy to work with! He was courteous, prompt, and professional. Always extremely responsive to all our concerns, Alex made the whole process very very smooth from first looking at the apartment to completing the application to signing the lease. I would absolutely work with him again, and recommend him 100%."

    "I was extremely fortunate to have met Alex Mahgoub through a friend. When I had to find a new tenant for a rental property on short notice I contacted Alex for help. He listed the apartment, scheduled open houses, assisted in getting the lease signed, he even helped get the new tenant settled in. I have worked with a handful of brokers over the years and Alex Mahgoub was hands down the best I ever worked with. His great personality and communication skills are vastly superior to all of his peers. He really shows that he cares about you as a client and is eager to do everything in his power to make finding a new tenant a positive experience. I will recommend Alex to anyone I know."

    "Alex is an outstanding broker. He helped us both purchase a new home and sell our current one. He is extremely professional, kind, and thoughtful. He had to help us navigate the complicated labyrinth of the New York City coop world, while trying to both sell and buy at the same time. Our deals went through beautifully. Alex was always in touch and he helped us get a great price on the home we sold. $40,000 above asking! We considered other brokers, but we found many of them to be really shady and at times not very bright or reliable. Alex knows what he is doing and he will put your interests first. He is also really smart, which is reassuring when you are spending so much money. I cannot recommend him enough!"

    "Having just moved from Australia, my partner and I were lucky enough to have some friends recommend Alex. I read some of his reviews before we met, and thought - this guy can't be that good. But within the first 10 minutes, I truly understood what everyone was talking about. Alex is everything you want in a broker, and 4 words would best describe our experience with him: Genuine: what you see is what you get. He wants to find the best place for YOU, and never lost sight of the goal. Knowledgable: the information (both relevant and non-relevant) he knows about the city is remarkable. Positive: his upbeat personality is what kept us going. Taking us to see a large number of places to ensure he found the right place for us. & Fun: Lets be honest, searching for a place isn't the most enjoyable experience, but we have had some great days in NYC looking at places with Alex. Alex is the guy that will find the right place for you."

    "After purchasing our rental property, my wife and I were lucky enough to meet Alex, who helped us find a high quality tenant in a very short amount of time. Alex is extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful when approaching a negotiation, and offers guidance without feeling pushy. When my wife and I decided to sell our condo a few years later it was a very easy choice to select Alex to represent us as sellers! We sold the home in six weeks for ABOVE asking! Thanks again for a great (and easy) transaction."

    "I relocated from Switzerland with my job this summer, and Alex came recommended to help me navigate the NY rental market for the first time. Even with my constricted schedule, he was extremely hard-working in setting up as many apartment viewings as I could handle, was dynamic and adaptable to my search changes, and always willing go the extra mile to address queries and issues with energy and enthusiasm. All in all it was an excellent experience, and I would certainly recommend him to any other new arrivals looking for a client-focused broker to guide them through the process from search to signature."

    "It was a pleasure working with Alex to sell our condo for a significant profit after 5 years of ownership. He used to work in the 280 PAS rental office, and now has moved to Corcoran, so you get specialized building expertise along with the resources and marketing muscle of a major NYC real estate brokerage - it’s the best of both worlds. Alex worked tirelessly to find the perfect buyer for our transaction, resulting in an all-cash sale at a record-high $/sf for a 2-bed in the building. I would not hesitate to work with him again and to recommend him to anyone who is buying, selling, or renting - especially in 280 Park Ave South."

    “We are very happy that we selected Alex to be the agent for leasing our investment property. We had many choices, including the broker that sold us the property, but glad we went with Alex. He made the process very simple and got us new tenants very quickly, resulting in no loss of rental income. He was very thorough and efficient with the paperwork and kept himself engaged even after the tenants moved in. He went out of his way to introduce the new tenants to the existing tenants to make sure that move in and move out process was well coordinated. Our old tenants were able to sell some their unwanted furniture to the new tenants, making their move out easier. Alex is a true professional with great communication skills and will look forward to working with him again, the next time we have to find a replacement tenant. We, without any hesitation, highly recommend Alex for any real estate needs.”

    "I was very fortunate to work with Alex Mahgoub when I was looking to rent an apartment in a condo in downtown Brooklyn that he was managing for the owner. I was moving to New York from overseas and had particularly complicated issues connected with getting my application in for condo approval but Alex went out of his way to help me as much as he could. I found Alex to be very professional, reliable, and extremely prompt about responding to queries via email as well as phone calls, when needed. He expedited my application and even when there were unforeseen delays with the move-in date, Alex took the time to explain the reasons to me carefully and negotiated an appropriate rent reduction with the landlord on my behalf. Overall, I was very satisfied with Alex's services as my broker - I had been warned by many about unscrupulous brokers in New York but found Alex to be dependable and his brokerage fee was well deserved."

I appreciate his honesty and ability to deliver results for his clients without losing basic principles of fairness and equality (same rules apply for all). I will recommend him to my family and friends, in fact I am consider buying my first property in Brooklyn and it was Alex whom I thought about in the first place. I trust he will help me achieve my goal and will do well”

What I was quite pleased with is how responsive he was. My questions and comments were always addressed by him almost immediately. He also sent us a list of comprehensive documents to prepare to get ready for the apartment hunt. The day before we were scheduled to look at apartments he sent us a complete list of places we were going to be looking at which gave us a good idea of the places we were going to see. In 2 days we saw about 20 apartments with Alex all around Brooklyn. Alex gave us a good perspective of the neighborhoods as well as pointed us to the popular restaurants/cafes and bars. This was really useful to us. Working with Alex helped us understand the NYC renting scenario as well as helped us get to know the neighborhood better. Strongly recommend Alex as your realtor whether you are looking to rent or buy."

He acted in a much more professional manner than your typical broker which made us feel like we could trust him; he even helped us negotiate down the price slightly from the initial ask. The next time that we search for an apartment it feels like a no brainer to begin with him."

    “Within two days [of listing] Alex had a new lease for us. When that lease fell through because the new renters, had bad misfortune happen to them, Alex and Brette came up with a new tenant within a week under the same terms. Not only did they help us, they helped the tenant that had the misfortune. We were able to cancel their lease without damages, since they had a new tenant right away and no time was lost. They also did this while we were out of town arranging cleaning repairs and the lease by email and fax as we were traveling. They saved us money and a lot of worry. Amazing service. Thanks Alex and Brette.”

    "As a person interested in finding an apartment as soon as possible, I found that Alex was enthusiastic not only in finding something quickly for me, but also in finding something I actually liked. Alex was also there and pushing from the moment of the lease signing until I was finally resting my head in one of the units he found for me."
