“NEVER PRESSURED ME TO SETTLE”
Geoff was a pleasure to work with. He's upbeat, friendly, and thoughtful. He really took the time to understand my preferences and then found apartments that actually met my criteria and were good candidates for me. He was also patient. My search lasted many months, and he stuck with me every step of the way and never pressured me to settle on an apartment just to make a sale.
“YOU’VE MADE THIS PROCESS MUCH EASIER FOR ME!”
And again thank you for all your help, I will definitely keep in touch and recommend you to friends. I really appreciate the help you’ve offered, your honesty and availability.

”I CAN CONFIDENTLY RECOMMEND GEOFF TO ANYONE WHO HAS REAL ESTATE NEEDS”
Early in 2018 my sister and I were faced with selling our late Mother’s apartment in Tribeca. We met with a number of impressive real estate professionals and ultimately decided to work with Halstead’s Geoffrey Wigdor. Ultimately we went with his team because of their enthusiasm, insight into the Manhattan real estate market and a rapport that was natural and immediate.
The apartment sold quickly and we were quite happy with the results. They guided us through the process from staging the apartment all the way to, happily, a smooth closing. As to be expected there were a few minor bumps along the way but the Wigdor’s helped us manage anything that came up and their experience and knowledge couldn’t have been more useful.
Additionally, Geoff did an appraisal of another apartment that had been my Mother’s in a completely different neighborhood in Manhattan and I found his work to be thorough and meticulous.
Finally, also in 2018, my wife and I rented an apartment on the Upper Eastside of Manhattan and we worked with Geoff on this endeavor. I couldn’t imagine an easier experience in finding the apartment we ultimately decided upon. We looked, literally, for one afternoon with Geoff showing us a number of apartments that were appropriate for what we were looking for. Amongst those was the apartment we rented and, as with the sale of my Mom’s apartment, Geoff guided us through the sometimes strange and complex world of apartment rentals in Manhattan.
I can confidently recommend Geoff to anyone who has real estate needs, be it buying, selling or renting, in New York City. In a relatively short period of time I worked with them on the items mentioned above and couldn’t be happier with the experience.
“I COULDN’T HAVE BEEN HAPPIER WITH SEAN’S SERVICES!”
It is my immense pleasure to recommend Sean Turner as a real estate agent for anyone looking to buy or sell. Not only does he have a deep knowledge of NYC communities and neighborhoods to make good recommendations, he was extremely patient throughout my almost one-year apartment hunting process, showing me as many properties as possible to ensure I found the most ideal place. He showed great attention to details during showings, spotting problems that I wouldn’t have seen. As a first-time buyer, I needed a lot of guidance on my finances, taxes, etc. and Sean connected me with very able accountants and lawyers. He is also a master of negotiations. He was able to secure me a deal that was beyond satisfactory in terms of both price and terms. Understanding my unique financial structure, he managed to put together a compelling co-op board package for me with additional supporting materials he provided. All in all, I couldn’t have been happier with Sean’s services and would certainly work with Sean again in the future!
Sean Turner was very helpful when we were buying a property. He had a clear, pleasant manner when showing us the property and was quick to reply with answers to our queries. He was an efficient liaison between us and the seller and managed the acquisition process in a refreshingly straightforward manner.

“Sean was different -HE ACTUALLY LISTENED TO WHAT I WANTED.”
Finding a new home can be a stressful process, with multiple agents constantly mailing/phoning to promote their latest stock of houses/apartments, regardless of one’s specific requirements. Sean was different- he actually listened to what I wanted. As a single professional female, he did not waste my time, but rather identified a range of secure, modern, yet characterful apartments, with good access to the station and other amenities as requested. All the places he showed me were viable options. Further to selecting a home, Sean advised me clearly on appropriate offer range, was timely in his correspondence, and played a useful intermediary role negotiating with the sellers on furniture; for example, facilitating a friendly deal process. The whole experience went very smooth. Sean was professional, courteous and straight-forward throughout, and I have no hesitation in recommending his services to others.
