James is awesome and was super helpful in me finding an apartment in Williamsburg. I’m pretty sure he knows every property in Williamsburg and Brooklyn. He put more energy into deciphering what I needed than any other agent I reached out to. Big thank you to Ideal and James.

Ideal really makes things possible! After all of my plans fell through, James found me a fantastic 2 bedroom coop. Even with a tough lending situation, he pulled things together for me. I’ve also been grateful to learn that Ideal has the most personable brokers - not an easy find in NYC. Thanks, James!!

We had a few recommendations for a realtor to sell my mom's house in Prospect Heights. We settled on Ideal Properties and are extremely happy with our decision. Our brokers, James and Erik, were professional and experienced. They not only sold the house for us above asking price but recommended inspectors, insurance teams, movers for the keepsakes that we needed moved out. Our experience with Ideal could not have been any more ideal. Thank you!!

Nick from Ideal was very attentive and professional. He found me a lovely apartment in Bed-Stuy with great amenities and a friendly super… just as I requested. Tough business, real estate in NYC, but to Nick it seems to come natural and he makes it all seem easy. Great agent to have on your side if and when you need one.

My first home purchase was a great experience thanks to Ideal's professional service throughout the process. My broker, and his team were very knowledgeable and were always willing to listen and help with any concerns I had, since this was all new to me. Brooklyn is a tough nut to crack when it comes to buying a good place, but Ideal was there every time I needed them.

My partner and I looked at over 20 apartments and talked to 5 different Brooklyn brokerages when we finally got a recommendation from a friend and got connected to Lorraine from Ideal. Lorraine is an amazing person, and spent so much of her time with us, mostly calming us down, or providing massive amounts of information on how to secure the right apartment for us in Brooklyn. Lorraine is an amazing broker, and a great individual we feel were lucky to have met.

My experience with Ideal was amazing. Joshua is an incredibly helpful, professional broker who made my rental process smooth and free of glitches. I was very nervous, as I am a young professional, moving to Brooklyn for the first time with very little knowledge of the area, the neighborhoods, the rental process. Josh found me a great place on a quiet block in Park Slope, with and access to everything I had specified I needed. Josh was always just a phone call away, and made himself available for showings and consultation whenever I needed him. Thank you, Josh!

Liz from Ideal Properties Group was the most fantastic agent in Brooklyn, and possibly on the planet! Liz was honest, friendly, and we actually had a lot of fun looking at apartments with her. Liz is very knowledgeable, approachable and professional. Thanks for the good times, and a great apartment that came out of all this, Liz!

I recently purchased my first home with Maria Vitaliano’s help. I knew nothing about the process. Maria was incredibly patient, knowledgeable and honest throughout. A true professional, and obviously a broker with years of experience in her field, Maria worked hard on making sure to understand my taste and desires. She was extremely helpful with all stages, and she was always available for a chat or another property visit. Maria came highly recommended from someone who also had an amazing experience working with her, and I have not regretted my decision at any point. Thank you for all your hard work, Maria!

Ideal Properties Group were as professional a real estate brokerage as I have ever worked with in Park Slope. They worked closely with me to assess the rental marketplace prior to listing my two apartments. They found me great tenants, and were incredibly effective in the lease signing process. I would recommend Ideal and specifically Mike Colombo’s team at Park Slope to anyone looking for help renting their inventory in Brooklyn.

Hauling to NYC from California, my girlfriend and I knew little about apartment hunting in NYC outside of hearsay from our friends (we have heard some horror stories from our friends), but when we ended up working with Luther from Ideal, we knew right away that we were in for a great experience. Luther was great, and although in the end we rented through another broker, I wanted to leave this review for Luther, in hopes his future clients have an opportunity at a similar experience. Luther went above and beyond. We could not recommend him more highly, especially now that we have worked with a number of other real estate brokers in Brooklyn.

Audrey from Lea was immensely helpful, plus dealing with her was my first ever experience with a Brooklyn broker that wasn't the usual skeez. Lea is not pushy, and she is completely upfront. She knows the Brooklyn neighborhoods inside and out, and will be the perfect asset for an apartment search, no matter how complex your requirements.

I feel like I’m in good company with quite a few satisfied customers I see Ideal has. After reading a number of reviews about James Guimaraes from Ideal, I reached out, and was happy to find the reviews were true, possibly even under-estimating the value he brings to the real estate process. James has always been promptly available for questions, and always happy to volunteer lots of good resources. James provided extremely helpful advice and offered some great ideas from beginning of my search to contract signing, and especially at the stage of evaluating and placing offers. James is a rare find, and a true asset to the real estate brokerage industry.


Accomodating and helpful

Schjanna from Ideal is a genuinely kind and honest person. She found me an amazing space at a relatively reasonable price (OK, this may be a total misnomer in Brooklyn!) and the whole rental process was smooth as silk. I highly recommend her services and expertise.

My boyfriend and I were looking for an apartment in Sunset Park last summer and Charles Ega from Ideal Properties Group was awesome - he was honest, communicative and very patient as we got our thoughts and later application together. I would definitely recommend working with Ideal Properties Group and I'll look to them when we decide to buy.

We had an awesome experience with the Ideal Properties Group. My partner and I were relocating to Brooklyn from Ottawa, and we had only two weekends to find an apartment. We worked with Chris, and he found us an amazing space our first weekend out. Chris also helped us get all the paperwork completed that Sunday morning, and we had flown back to Ottawa knowing we were all set - and what a tremendous relief that was!!!! Everything was done online, even our first rent payment, and we’re really ecstatic about our new place.

Because of some of their Yelp reviews, as well as their reputation in our neighborhood (Park Slope), my family decided to engage Ideal to find a suitable tenant for our property. We were amazed to have one within two days. Ideal properties Group did all the work and the agent even came to my office in Westchester to do the final paperwork.The staff at Ideal were very professional and very accommodating. We were extremely pleased with their services and are happy to have found our broker for years to come. So far, we are very pleased with the tenant they introduced. Thank you Ideal.

These guys were great! Straightforward, transparent, friendly, efficient, knowledgeable. I'd worked with another broker in Park Slope (OMG what a nightmare) and was disappointed with how my search turned out, but Lorraine from Ideal showed me some great apartments, and I signed my lease the same day! Next time I look for an apartment (not anytime soon I hope), I will go to Ideal first, and likely only to Ideal.

My wife and I were looking for a 2 bedroom apartment in the South Slope and Windsor Terrace. Dari from Ideal Group was our broker and she was a real pleasure to work with. What makes her a very special realtor is that she listens to you and does her best to show apartments that are real possibilities. Dari was honest, and very helpful in finding the right apartment in the price range that would work for us. You can probably find a great apartment with Dari, and me saying this doesn’t come easily, given my previous (terrible) experiences in the city.

Lance Lowe from Ideal and his team were excellent. They know very well the Brooklyn condo market, and were very professional and completely transparent with even the smallest issues. They always answered on time and kept track of the closing requirements and steps, which enabled my partner and I to close on our space in record time.
