Alex Mahgoub

Get in Touch

  • Brian (Condo Seller)

    As a seller, I could not have asked for a better real estate broker.
  • Ander (Condo Seller)

    Hiring Alex Mahgoub to handle my property was the smartest decision I could have made. He was fast, flexible, honest, and he produced great results, twice.
  • Jason & Carrie (Co-op Owners)

    On multiple occasions he's gone above and beyond expectations, all while maintaining flawless near-instant communication, even across foreign time zones!
  • Gonzalo & Lisa (Condo Buyers)

    Alex is a wholly unique broker - genuine and insightful. His guidance through the home-buying process was invaluable, and thanks to him we found the home of our dreams.
  • Mary (Condo Seller)

    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.
  • Maya & Jon (Condo Buyers)

    Alex really does deserve the title Super Broker! He made us feel like his most important clients throughout the process of buying our first home. He was especially vital in the bidding process, applying real analytical rigor.
  • Craig & Charley (Co-op Buyers)

    Alex is far and away the best broker we've worked with in New York City, able to manage our process and expectations through a stressful process. Never once in a long multi-month process did it ever feel like he had any priority other than being sure we found a home that was the right fit for us.
  • Tim & Alicia (Condo Buyers)

    As first-time buyers, we had never experienced the complicated process of buying a home in New York City. Alex made a big difference for us. He was always patient with our thousand questions, helped us make successful bids with industry intel and his experience as a negotiator, and kept us calm and positive.
  • Charlie & Emily (Co-op Buyers)

    When we began our house hunt, Alex came highly recommended. We had a fantastic experience working with him! It was great to be able to rely on someone with so much experience and attention to detail. He guided us through the whole process, from the search, to submitting the right bid, to navigating the co-op board. He did it all with a high level of energy and focus throughout. We are now in our new home and are so grateful for Alex’s help!
  • Jenny & Pat (Renters)

    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.
  • Jim & Lucy (Condo Owners)

    As owners of an apartment in Gramercy Place, we've retained Alex Mahgoub to market our unit for rent over the past three years. "Amazing Results" is the way that we would describe him. On both occasions, he was able to rent our apartment out in an extremely short period of time and was able to negotiate a monthly rent close to our asking price. This broker has been exemplary in helping us achieve our objective. Thus, he has total exclusivity in marketing our place.
  • Aaron (Condo Seller)

    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.
  • Haejin & Kevin (Condo Owners)

    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!
  • Helen & Brian (Condo Owners)

    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.
  • Liz (Renter)

    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.
  • Mike & Micheline (Condo Owners)

    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.
  • Alicia and Tim (Condo Buyers)

    As first time buyers, we had never experienced the complicated process of buying a home in New York City. Alex made a big difference for us. He was always patient with our thousand questions, helped us make successful bids with industry intel and his experience as a negotiator, and kept us calm and positive. He is a great communicator, never offline when you most need him most and always friendly. Alex’s network of trusted professionals -mortgage bankers and lawyers was also a plus. They were as reliable and trustworthy as Alex himself. If you are looking to buy in Brooklyn, We highly recommend working with Alex.
  • Daphne & Greg (Co-op Buyers)

    A friend recommended Alex to us when we were at the very start of our search to buy an apartment. Alex offered excellent insight throughout our treks to open houses, helping us hone what we were looking for. When we were ready to bid on apartment, Alex made sure we presented the seller with not only a quote but a little bit about ourselves, helping us stand out from the pack. The seller was difficult throughout the process but Alex’s hard work and cheer overcame every obstacle. Without his boundless energy and perseverance, we would not have our lovely new coop and we wholeheartedly recommend Alex to anyone beginning the search for their home!
  • Diana (Condo Owner)

    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.
  • Emily & Charlie (Co-Op Buyers)

    It was great to be able to rely on someone with so much experience and attention to detail. He guided us through the whole process, from the search, to submitting the right bid, to navigating the co-op board. He did it all with a high level of energy and focus throughout!
  • Jon and Maya (Condo Buyers)

    Alex really does deserve the title Super Broker! He made us feel like his most important clients throughout the process of buying our first home. He let us work at our own pace in the search, but also kept us steadily advancing toward the goal. He was especially vital in the bidding process, applying real analytical rigor to make a competitive, yet fair, bid. His relationship building is really special - he has great contacts in the real estate attorney and mortgage broker space, and he also worked well with a provider of our own. Alex truly shepherded us through the whole journey to closing on an amazing new home. And he is a pleasure to be around!
  • Mary (Condo Owner, Repeat Client)

    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 anyone could have done better. Thank you Alex for TWO jobs well done.
  • Patrick (Condo Owner, Repeat Client)

    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.
  • Jason & Carrie (Co-op Owners)

    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!
  • Christina (Condo Owner)

    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.
  • Erich & Gabby (Condo Owners, Repeat Client)

    We first reached out to Alex about a year ago, when we were thinking about moving to a bigger place. Alex was patient and asked us exactly the right questions to help us articulate what we were looking for. We never felt pressured into anything that we weren’t comfortable with and he was always responsive to our questions (no matter what the time). When we finally did find the apartment that we fell in love with, Alex kept us calm through an incredibly stressful process. On top of that, he helped us get the apartment we were living in rented out in record time. We can honestly say that we’ve never worked with a better broker and look forward to working with Alex again.
  • Scott & Michael (Co-op Buyers)

    We were so lucky that friends of ours recommended Alex as our broker. We first brought Alex on after we found a new condo we intended to purchase. He could have encouraged us to buy the apartment and closed in a matter of weeks with virtually no work on his part. Instead Alex encouraged us, first time homebuyers, to consider other options. So began a nearly year-long relationship that led us to finding an amazing apartment we never realized we wanted! He introduced us to other neighborhoods and different styles of apartments. Over time he helped us build an understanding of the marketplace and the options available to us. He pushed us outside of our comfort zone, which led to important discoveries: rather than new construction, actually our preferences leaned pre-war; while we assumed our price range limited us to Brooklyn, actually there were some surprising deals to be had in Manhattan. Through it all Alex was patient and respectful. He never pressured us to increase our budget. In fact, the apartment we ultimately bought was less expensive than that first one we intended to buy. He was always available, replying to emails and texts at all hours, and lining up appointments for showings with very little notice. He always made us feel like a priority, even though he is often working with several clients. His insights were critical during the stressful process of bidding. And his advice was much appreciated through our co-op application and interview. The process of buying an apartment in NYC is formidable. Having a knowledgeable and effective broker is a must. Alex ticks those boxes, but it’s his positive energy and enthusiasm that really sets him apart. He’s a nice guy- and you can’t say that about all brokers. We’ve already recommended Alex to friends who now have their own positive experience to share.
  • Ron (Renter)

    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.
  • Matt S. (Co-op Buyer)

    Partnering with Alex to find my first home was a fantastic experience. For example, he spent countless Saturdays taking me to different places and then soliciting my feedback so he could really hone in on condos/coops that met my criteria. In addition, he did extensive pricing analysis write ups that gave me confidence during the bidding process. Most importantly, not only is Alex a consummate professional, but he is also a genuinely nice guy who cares about his clients. As such, I enthusiastically recommend working with Alex.
  • Amy & Donald (Co-op Owners, Repeat Client)

    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!
  • Chace (Renter)

    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.
  • Kerry (Condo Buyer)

    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.
  • Sue (Renter)

    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?
  • Gonzalo & Lisa (Condo Buyers)

    We were referred by a friend to Alex after a few less-than-ideal meetings with another broker. We could not have been happier with Alex and are tremendously grateful to our friend for referring him. Alex is a wholly unique broker - genuine and insightful. His guidance through the home-buying process was invaluable, and thanks to him we found the home of our dreams. He truly listened to what we wanted in a future home and was extremely perceptive to our reactions in every viewing. Alex would help us to think clearly and comparatively about each place post-viewing, and it didn't take long to find the place for us. Throughout the entire process we felt so lucky to have such an incredibly knowledgeable and veritable broker. We would not have found our dream home without Alex!
  • Graham & Rebecca (Renters)

    We were probably amongst the most difficult clients to work with. Moving to NYC to set up a business meant we had no employer, no credit history and little time to find an apartment. Alex had arranged viewings over our first 2 days and really made sure that we saw a wide range apartment types to help us narrow down what we wanted. Even dealing with a difficult landlord didn’t knock him off course, Alex had fantastic alternatives within 24 hours. It was great to be able to trust Alex to lead everything from asking the tough questions at viewings to negotiating the final package. We collected the keys 7 days after choosing our apartment and were UNDER budget – surely a record for NYC! It was genuinely a pleasure to spend time with Alex and work with someone who made what could’ve been a stressful process, easy. We will use Alex again.
  • Kaushik & Amy (Renters)

    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.
  • Brian (Condo Owner, Repeat Client)

    I first used Alex Mahgoub two years ago as a trusted resource for renting my apartment to place the perfect tenant. After my tenant’s lease ran out and they decided to move I went to Alex to get his thoughts on the real estate market and to see if he thought it was a good time to be a seller in Brooklyn. Alex assisted me in pricing the apartment at an attractive number that I was very comfortable with and he did a fantastic job at marketing the apartment. His hard work resulted in a very large turnout for the first open house that exceeded my expectations and lead to several offers over asking the following day. I would like to again emphasize Alex's strong communication skills and his positive guidance as he kept me fully informed and confident during the selling process. As a seller, I could not have asked for a better real estate broker and I continue to recommend Alex to anyone I know looking to buy, sell or rent in NYC.
  • Matt M. (Condo Buyer)

    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 throughout 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.
  • Ander Del Rio (Condo Owner, Repeat Client)

    Hiring Alex Mahgoub to handle my property was the smartest decision I could have made. He was fast, flexible, honest, and he produced great results, twice. First I asked him to rent out my condo; I was in a rush, and he got me an excellent price, quickly and easily. I travel a lot for work, and I was worried this would affect things. I couldn´t have been more mistaken: Alex handled everything. He made it easy. When I decided to sell, Alex put together a strategy to get the apartment sold quickly and for the best price possible in a softening market. His negotiation skills helped me get a higher price than I originally thought and we were in contract in a few weeks! I couldn’t be more pleased with how he performed. Since I moved to South America, I needed Alex to be around from start to finish and he went out of his way to make sure my tenant was taken care of during this process which was important to me. Thanks for all your help.
  • Kelly & Laura (Condo Owners, Repeat Client)

    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.
  • Jeff (Renter)

    Alex was wholeheartedly dedicated to my rental search and application process, helping me feel supported and in the best of hands during a process that can so easily be overwhelming. We first connected a few months before the search began, and he did a great job of setting my expectations and leading the process from day one. He was always connected and always made me feel like a priority. When an unforeseen issue came up, he was a stern negotiator and resolved it without hesitation. While this was our first time working together, I cannot think of anyone else I would want to work with for my next rental or future sale in the years ahead!
