Michael Rossi







Michael Rossi is the founder and managing broker of Elegran Real Estate. He started the company to reenvision New York’s outdated real estate brokerage industry to provide more transparency and better quality service to his clients.

Michael has worked tirelessly to fulfill his vision of creating Elegran’s technology-enabled, data-driven business model. This model incorporates state-of-the-art technology with in-house marketing professionals, allowing brokers to focus their time on clients rather than marketing and lead generation, which has allowed Elegran’s agents to grow their business three times faster than traditional firms.

Under Michael’s leadership, the company has built a sound reputation, establishing Elegran as a trusted and reliable brokerage in New York City. Elegran has built a strong working relationship with most major residential real estate developers in Manhattan, granting its agents access to significant new development projects. In addition, Michael’s connections in mortgage banking, legal, taxation, title provide endless resources and impeccable service to Elegran’s clients.

Michael has transacted over $3 billion in real estate over his career. Prior to Michael's entry into the real estate industry, he managed a trading desk for a boutique hedge fund and ran client service operations for a Wall Street brokerage firm with over $600 million in assets under management. His clients have included major corporations, hedge funds, mutual funds, insurance companies, and high net worth individuals.

Michael is a native of Westchester County and currently resides in Bedford Village with his wife, his son, Solomon, and his daughter, Arabella. He attended the London School of Economics and has international real estate experience in the Caribbean, Costa Rica, and the United Kingdom.

He explained every step ahead of time and made the transaction much easier than I ever anticipated it would be. He was wonderful to work with, and if I ever have to sell again I will definitely turn to him and Elegran again. - Nate S.

After some difficulty selling my home, Elegran was recommended to me. Unlike other real estate companies I’ve worked with in the past, Elegran was on top of their game. Their team was able to make the sale quickly. They got the job done in no time at all! - Jeffrey B.

A friend recommended Elegran to me because I was looking to get a new place near my job. After working long hours, the last thing I wanted was a long commute.

I was referred to Elegran by a friend who’d had a great experience with them buying a condo in Brooklyn, and the recommendation was so warranted! Their knowledge of market trends was bar none, and they treated my requests and needs with the utmost professionalism. Everything about my experience with Elegran put me at ease i buying my first condo. - Joris C.

Working with the Elegran team was seamless and pleasurable from start to finish. They were informative, transparent, and tireless in their efforts to find me a home that fit all the credentials I had, and kept me in the loop every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough! - Enora M.

I had a very positive experience working with Elegran. They were very attentive and made sure the places we found all matched my criteria. I was surprised how friendly the brokers were seeing as many highly-regarded companies treat all clients the same. It seems like the brokers really take their time to get to know the clients - Louisa R.

I've worked with other brokers in Manhattan and so far the agents at Elegran were definitely the most dedicated. They really know their stuff and made the process smooth. - Benjamin S.

I’ve worked with Elegran on two separate occasions. After a successful experience the first time around, I decided to work with them again. From my experiences I would say the agents at Elegran are definitely top-notch. - Melanie W.

From the time of the listing of the apartment, through closing, the Elegran team ensured that the process proceeded smoothly. I highly recommend using them to sell your apartment. - Thomas A.

From my experience, the agents I worked with at Elegran were very patient. Although buying an apartment is a big decision, I’m also pretty indecisive, and they let me take my time and move at a pace I was comfortable with. I’ve worked with tons of unfriendly real estate agents in the past which made the whole operation really unpleasant, but working with Elegran was an overall positive experience. - Luc M.

You're in another class entirely from the other real estate brokers I've worked with. Your ability to respond quickly to my needs and understand my vision for my new home allowed this process to work smoothly and efficiently! - Toomas R.

It's been a great experience interacting with you and I will definitely recommend you to my friends. - Sasha B.

I am grateful to have met Elegran as they did an excellent job in helping me find a house while I was out of the country. I was told that finding an apartment in NYC was a very difficult and exhausting process being a foreigner, but Elegran made it relatively simple and connected me with great resources. I highly recommend their professionalism and knowledge of the market. - Corentin M.

The Elegran team were prepared, knowledgeable and always presented themselves with the utmost professionalism. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new apartment in Manhattan. After dealing with several of the more established firms throughout the years, I was convinced by a co-worker to give Elegran a shot when searching for my new apartment. I was more than impressed. They clearly were on top of the market in Chelsea and we were in touch almost daily throughout the process trying locate a place that allowed pets and had enough space. It took a while, but in the end I ended up exactly where I wanted to be. - Amanda S.

I found Elegran after doing some research, and I’m pleased with my experience. Being an international buyer, I never know what to expect when working with people from other places. The agents at Elegran were very charming and helpful. They seemed very qualified with good background experience and in the end, got me the place I was looking for! - Chloe A.

For my first apartment, I went through a company a friend had recommended, and after a less than desirable outcome from the process, I opted for a different broker. I found positive reviews online for Elegran so I decided to go with them. The reviews were definitely accurate and I can personally recommend them as well. - Nala K.

Moving from the West Coast, I really didn’t know much about the neighborhoods in the city. The Elegran agents helped me get a feel for the neighborhoods and showed only the best options so they didn’t waste my time. A friend had recommended I go through this process with Elegran so I took their word and it ended up going very smoothly. If you’re new to the area Elegran is for sure the way to go. - Marcel J.

Being a lifelong resident in New York, I wanted to find myself a nice apartment in Manhattan. After being introduced to Elegran, it was obvious they made their clients interests a priority. Throughout the tedious process of the showings and the negotiations, they kept me calm and always had my best interest at heart. They constantly kept me up to date with new listings and new developments. Even after the contracts were signed, they aided me with my needs for the move itself. I am lucky I was able to work with them and would recommend them to anyone that has real estate needs. - Stephane D.

You were was absolutely fantastic and instrumental in finding us a new apartment. My husband and I aren't from NYC and only had a short time to find a place to live.

In the end they helped me find a wonderful place. - Chloe A.

Nothing but good things to say about Elegran. They helped me stay within my budget and it was a rather speedy process compared to my other experiences with brokers. - Quentin B.

Our experience working with Elegran was excellent. They were prompt, accommodating and understanding. Even after the contracts were signed, they have aided us with our needs about the move itself and proved to be a one-stop shop for all of our needs during this process. - Liza D.
