Buyer’s AgencyWe are dedicated to you and the seamless success of your real estate goals.
I worked with Mick DiStasio to find an apartment after just moving to the city. Mick was incredibly efficient and professional. He made what otherwise could have been a difficult process easy. We found and signed on our apartment within a matter of days. Mick is a straight shooter and a great broker. I would definitely recommend him. Thanks again Mick!
I had a great experience working with Mick DiStasio - he was very friendly and helpful with my apartment search and showed me a lot of nice places. He was patient with my long "wish list" and did his best to find options that would work. He''s really responsive as well, always keeping me in the loop about new listings and answering my questions. Unfortunately I haven''t found the right apartment yet and may put the search on hold for a while, but I would definitely work with Mick again in the future.
Mick DiStasio was referred to me by a good friend and it was such a pleasure to work with him. My roommate and I ended up finding our dream apartment in our desired price range AND location on the very first night! We were in a bit of a time crunch because the move was unexpected, so we are super thankful to Mick for making this a quick and seamless process. We have heard such horror stories about brokers, but this was completely the opposite. Mick made himself readily available, cabbed us around to showings, helped us throughout our lease signing, and gave us some great contacts for moving companies and other services. He is a super nice guy and very conversational. Definitely recommending Mick to all of my other friends who are moving to new apartments!!
How Elegran Works With Buyers?
1. As a buyer, why should I work with Elegran?
Purchasing real estate is likely to be the biggest and most complex financial transaction a person will make in their life. First and foremost, we listen in order to align with our individual clientele’s goals.
Transparency is not synonymous with Manhattan real estate. Elegran has built its own proprietary multiple listing system, Alfred, to facilitate this need in the market. We consolidate properties both on and off-market, and what could be coming to market soon.
The process begins by educating you on the market and inventory as well as advising on specific property strengths and weaknesses’. Your agent will negotiate terms, financing, and legal recommendation customized to the buyer and property type, prepare the board package, and facilitate the closing processes as well as inspection, walk-thru.
Our relationship doesn’t stop at the closing, as we ensure a seamless transition for you into your new home. We will absorb stress while removing pressure and emotion from the process. It should be noted that a buyer who relies on the seller or a listing agent to handle both sides of a deal does not have representation or an unconflicted advocate.
2. What does a buyer’s agent do?
A buyer's agent is a licensed real estate professional agent who represents and advocates for the buyer in their transaction. We are skilled advisors with authority to act on your behalf as the buyer in negotiating and ultimately acquiring real estate.
Legally, as your buyer’s agent there exists a singular fiduciary duty to you, the buyer, with the intention of protecting your interests during all stages of the purchasing process.
3. Who pays the buyer’s agent fee?
There is generally no out-of-pocket cost to have a buyer’s agent. The seller pays the commission upon the sale of their home which typically covers both the seller and buyer’s agent. This commission is contractually set prior to the property being listed on the market. Utilizing a buyer’s agent may save you tens of thousands of dollars when buying a home, not to mention your most valuable asset -- Time.
4. How do Elegran agents differentiate from others?
At Elegran we choose highly collaborative agents to represent our brand that live into our core values both personally and professionally; client centricity, professionalism, integrity and empathy. We then train and develop each of our representatives to be an advisor and a full-time real estate professional. Real Estate is our career.
Elegran has a time tested and proven network of industry professionals. These strategic relationships encompass leading real estate attorneys, mortgage bankers, and brokers, movers, interior designers, contractors, and architects will become your ally during your transaction and maybe even a close friend.
Through leveraging Elegran’s proprietary technology, Alfred, and coupled with our market insights and analytics, Elegran’s agents are deeply skilled at negotiating the best price for our clients. Elegran’s agents have a track record of selling 8X the amount of real estate as a typical NYC real estate agent.
