Since entering the industry, Ignacio has consistently demonstrated a knack for luxury real estate, negotiating record-breaking sales and earning the attention and esteem of some of the biggest names in the business. He quickly established himself as a trusted adviser and resource for his clients, helping both buyers and sellers navigate New York's fast-paced market.

Looking for his next challenge, he moved to New York City to enter the most exciting and competitive market in the world, and applied his innate negotiation skills and dynamic personality to break into the field he found most fascinating: Manhattan luxury real estate. Since then, Ignacio has built a reputation in the luxury sector for his clear vision, focused energy, and drive to provide unparalleled service. Hailing from Santiago, Chile, he is a talented guitarist and songwriter, and pursued his interests by studying composition and guitar at the Modern School of Music in Chile.

Before sharing our experience, I would like to say that Ignacio is great, and you should definitely work with him if you are looking to purchase in New York City. When my sister and I first started looking at New York apartments as first time home buyers, we had no idea about how everything works. After I put down my information on Streeteasy, there were several brokers who contacted me, but Ignacio really stood out from the rest from the way he introduced himself and answering my questions. I knew immediately that I wanted to work with him and no one else. Ignacio was very kind and patient. He explained to us all the terms and rules in the real estate market. He was able to answer all our questions. One quality I appreciated the most about Ignacio was that he was also very prompt in responding to emails, at any hour of the day. He also had never missed a call from me. Once we talked about our budget and the requirements, he was able to send us information on many listings and arrange open house tours. Not only was Ignacio professional and an expert in his field, he was also very personable and genuine. Buying a home is a long process but working with Ignacio definitely turned it into enjoyable experience. To us, he is both our broker and our friend. We ended up purchasing a condo in the UES that was originally above our budget. But with the help of Ignacio and his negotiation skills, we were able to purchase it right on budget. He made the buying process amazingly painless. If I ever were to buy/sale an apartment in New York again, I would definitely work with Ignacio.Mike & Vivian Horng
The process for buying a condo-coop in Manhattan proved to be challenging, but fortunately we had the guidance of our real estate agent, Ignacio Cesped. From the onset of our relationship (he was the first to answer my on-line inquiry), Ignacio responded with alacrity to our every inquiry, even at odd hours and weekends. He proved to be knowledgeable of the real estate market in our geographical area of interest, and was able to explain, in simple terms, the concept of a condo-coop to us neophytes. We were thoroughly pleased with Ignacio's professionalism, thoroughness, patience, and persistence. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for real estate in lower Manhattan.Dr. Domenick M.D. and Dr. Jean Randazzo M.D
Purchasing your first home can be a daunting experience, particularly when you're in the market for a co-op in NYC. Fortunately, I had the pleasure of working with Ignacio Cesped. Throughout the entire process, from open house to closing, Ignacio exuded patience, professionalism, and expertise in NYC real estate. Without any reservations, I would recommend Ignacio to anyone in the market for a new home and I hope to work with him again in the future.Edmund McCormack
My sister and I had the pleasure of working with Ignacio on purchasing a co-op in Yorkville, Manhattan. On the day we met Ignacio he was energetic, assuring and resourceful. We didn’t realize how long it would actually take to purchase an apartment, but Ignacio was right there with us. He offered advice, answered all of our questions and made himself available to us 24/7. Ignacio was willing to go above and beyond for us and I truly appreciated his attention to detail, professionalism and attitude. There were definitely highly stressful moments, and he was able to walk us through these scenarios very calmly and competently. It was a pleasure to work with Ignacio throughout this arduous process and I highly recommend him as an agent.Richard and Enma Mullo
