Mark Richter has been a pleasure to work with. He was gracious, patient and understanding and had a good sense for our needs as well as limits.Though a deal we worked on did not materialize through our fault, I would always work with Mark on future ones.Seyla
Mark has helped me with a number of transactions over the last several years. He invested in continuing to share insights and his perspectives even when we weren’t in market. So when we were ready to move - we had a great working relationship and a lot of intelligence to inform our decisions. Hope to continue working with Mark in the future!Mike & Heatherlynn
Mark was great! He was on top of finding new listings he thought I would like and always responded quickly to my questions. He was also a huge help during the process of making an offer and negotiating for my apartment and the coop application process. He is very knowledgeable about all stages of the process and it was a pleasure to work with him throughout. I highly recommend Mark!Lee
My wife and I highly recommend Mark Richter as your next New York City broker. Right out of the box he proved himself to be the right person for us. He listened carefully to our wish list, price range, as well other concerns that we had relative to the housing market. He proved himself to be knowledgeable, and very responsive. He was well-informed and very informative. Mark proved to be very adept at using technology to organize our options in ways that made it easy to understand and compare important points of interest that mattered about the homes that we showed interest in. After finding us our dream home he continued to make himself available to us as a resource. I feel very comfortable in endorsing Mark to you as the next broker that you should call.Lyndhia & Carl
Mark was the consummate professional - yet very genuine in each and every interaction. We had a long search with multiple starts and stops, and Mark was there for advice and to serve as a sounding board at every restart. We met several brokers at several firms during our search and came in with pre-set expectations and without a doubt, Mark was by far the most reliable, responsive and again, genuine broker we met. Always on time, always well-prepared and eager to go the extra mile to provide us with all we needed to make a decision. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends or family.Mike and Theresa
We have known Mark for about 7 years now and have used him many times. He is wonderful to work with, and really tries to work with you on finding exactly what you want. He is fair, informative and helps you see the pros and cons of each apartment in the NYC market. Mark was a pleasure to work with and we would look to use him again in the future.Sarah P.
Mark is a fantastic professional. My wife and I would highly recommend him. He is consistently prepared and knowledgeable about real estate, and very reliable as well.Matt O.
My wife and I highly recommend Mark as a broker to find real estate in New York City for rent or purchase. He has helped us with both over the years.Recently, we worked with Mark over several months in an exhaustive search to identify property which met our specifications. Once identified Mark was extremely helpful in negotiating the purchase contract and following through to closing. Mark cares. He listens, processes and adjusts the search accordingly. He is creative often suggesting different options to consider. He is personable with a good sense of humor which definitely helps during a long search. He is punctual and very knowledgeable about the New York market. He is articulate and able to explain some nuances between different properties and options. He is also flexible and willing to work with other brokers if it means gaining access to the right apartment.He went the extra mile in preparing spreadsheets to track and compare various properties we previewed.Mark is a consummate professional who is flexible and adjusts easily to new and changing requirements or markets.Charlie and Tracy
Being a first-time home buyer, I was a little intimidated at first. Fortunately, I found Mark and he made the process much easier for me. He offered excellent advices, explained and answered every question I had, and helped me make informed decisions. I am very happy with my first home and couldn't have been more pleased with the service. I would highly recommend Mark as he works VERY hard for his clients. Thank you!Kristina
Our long search for a place in the City started 9,000 miles away as part of our repatriation to the US from overseas. For almost nine months Mark worked with us patiently as we narrowed our long list of requirements and "must haves" to something that would be possible and within our budget. Over the course of three separate visits to Manhattan, we saw a dozen apartments, Mark staying upbeat when the two of us were losing hope. Once we narrowed our choices, Mark was quick in pulling together a deal that was good for us and for the landlord. Now, we are settled into an apartment that feels like home.Nick & Lawson
Trying to find a nice apartment in NYC at a reasonable price is like finding a needle in the haystack. The process is grueling and can be extremely frustrating, but luckily for me I was able to rely on Mark's expertise to make my apartment search a breeze. Throughout the entire process, I was given timely and pertinent updates regarding my apartment search which allowed me to secure a fantastic place in a timely and pain free manner. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who is looking for a consummate professional and I will certainly use him Mark again in the future.Eric
Mark helped me and my wife purchased our first home. He is responsive, articulate and considerate. It was a stress-free experience working with Mark through the entire purchase process, and we'd highly recommend him to other potential home buyers.Ran and Hongjing
Mark was a great help to me and my girlfriend as we found our apartment. He was very professional, friendly and responsive, and we quickly were able to settle into our new place. We would strongly recommend Mark to anyone looking for a place to live!Matt and Sarah
Looking back it’s hard to fathom. From a cold call voicemail, without a specific property in mind, all the way across the country that we would/could have found two people that were capable of investing themselves so fully in our search for our retirement home. I’m not saying we’re hard to please but we came to Mark & Ali with lots of ideas…gotta have a garden or wrap terrace…high ceilings…few common walls…walkable neighborhood…and then there’s Nipper, the D-O-G…! They made it seem like like WE hadn’t thought of everything…AND, of course, never having dealt with New York City real estate before we hadn’t BUT, they had us covered! The best advice, referrals, communication and full panoply of options anyone would require or expect. Did I mention Covid-19 OR the fact that we got the deal of the decade for the home of our dreams…??? We feel so very lucky to have had them as our team leaders in our new home search. You should be so lucky!Steven & Dudley
We were moving to NYC from Europe with very little knowledge about real estate in the NYC, except for the horror stories heard from friends. We had only one meeting with Mark in NYC, after which he already understood our needs, selected suitable apartments, handled communication with the building, and even helped us with furniture. Due to the superb service Mark provided, I was able to move into to my apartment in a building I simply love straight from the airport.Mikael
I had the pleasure of working with Mark Richter recently as he represented me in my search for the perfect New York City apartment. He is extremely professional, very personable, highly attentive and extraordinarily patient. Mark guided me through the entire search, negotiation and approval process. He has tremendous integrity and is truly knowledgeable with regard to properties, neighborhoods and values. His assistance was invaluable and I highly recommend Mark to anyone seeking a real estate broker.Brooke
We would highly recommend that any client work with him for trustful & professional advice. He is by far the most responsible and helpful realtor we have ever met. Working with him was a pleasure.N. Guerrero and I. Maldonado
After working with other brokers in NYC, it was a welcome relief to work with Mark, who found us our dream apartment almost immediately. He took all of our requests into consideration, was extremely responsive to our questions, and streamlined the entire process once we had made our final decision. Mark truly had our interests at heart, asking landlords and leasing agents questions we hadn't even considered and ensuring that we received a fair rental price in the end. We look forward to working with Mark again in the future!Mike & Laura
Anyone who has attempted to relocate in New York City knows it can be a daunting and overwhelming task. In spite of this, agents like Mark Richter make this stressful time manageable and in the end, rewarding. Mark Richter was extremely attentive to our needs and concerns as potential renters. As apartment hunters, we have had many negative experiences in the past with real estate agents... Mark has remedied any stigma created by those negative experiences by providing us with a detailed listings, carefully planned showings, and constant vigilant support during the application process. When it comes to the numerous agents we have worked with, Mark stands alone as the only agent we would work with again.Devon & Erik
Mark was extremely professional (and patient) in helping us find our place. I started with a few other agents, but they were total sharks and really unprofessional. Given that I was moving back from Dubai, I needed real advice, not someone just looking for a commission.Emily
Living in NYC, my partner and I have had several poor experiences with brokers in the past. Our experience with Mark was the complete opposite. He was always on time, if not early, to our appointments. He made sure to accommodate all of our needs. He is also probably one of the most responsive people we have ever come in contact with in regards to answering our countless phone calls and emails. We even had an issue with the building during our move-in and Mark jumped right in and remedied the situation which we wouldn’t have resolved without his hard work and dedication. We highly recommend Mark if you are searching for your new home. He will absolutely get the job done.Patrick and Alvin
