Licensed Real Estate Broker
Certified Negotiation Expert
Residential Property Manager

Ivan specializes in rentals and sales exclusively in Long Island City and is the only resource you would need in your apartment search in this neighborhood. He is a graduate of Adelphi University, holding a degree in International Relations and Business, and he also has an MBA from MCNY. Recently he has also completed a diploma program in Residential Property Management at NYU to further expand his skills and expertise in the real estate market. Ivan's vast knowledge and 10 years of experience in the business has contributed to his success, but it wasn't without his philosophy of "blatant honesty" with his clients that has lead him to ultimate achievement. Recognized as Long Island City expert, he has mastered all the luxury high-rise buildings in the area and has a direct relationship with owners, developers, and leasing offices alike. Ivan is a Certified Negotiation Expert and he makes sure that his clients get the best possible rate in any given transaction. His ability to find No Fee apartment options for his clients and his devotion has resulted in him being reviewed on many different platforms such as Yelp, Naked Apartments, Google, Zillow, and others. Sensitive to his clients' needs, he takes pride in his ability to solve "problems." Ivan has overseen over 1100 transactions in his RE career helping many different people in the process, including--students looking to rent their first apartment in New York to families looking to relocate to a luxury 3- bedroom penthouse.

I was incredibly fortunate and incredibly lucky to have Ivan as my first agent - he was genuine, trustworthy, knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and effective. Not only did he find me the perfect apartment (that I was able to sign the lease for within a week!), but he also made the apartment hunting experience stress-free, smooth, and so so easy. This was my first time apartment hunting in New York, and I came in with a lot of questions and a lot of warnings from friends about sketchy agents with questionable motives. Ivan definitely is not one of these agents - from the moment we met (he was very on time, which I appreciated), he was friendly and open, and patiently answered all of my questions. He made sure he understood what I was looking for, and went above and beyond to make sure that I understood his role as an agent, why he chose the listings he''d be showing me, and how apartment hunting in New York worked in general. As he was showing me each place (he was very efficient - we covered three in ~40 min but I didn''t feel rushed at all), he was very knowledgeable and very thorough at communicating the pros and cons of each place. What I appreciated the most was that he was not selling just to sell - he was very frank, very honest, and very real about everything. I decided to apply to the last place that Ivan showed me (which he strongly recommended, even though it was a no-fee apartment). Even after I applied, he followed up with me to make sure that I had submitted the documents that I needed to, and also checked in with the building to make sure my application was getting processed as quickly as possible. He made sure I was updated, and I never felt lost or unsure of what was going on. He even followed up after my application was approved to make sure that my lease signing went smoothly. Basically, Ivan is wonderful because he keeps it real - he has your best interests at heart and goes above and beyond to make sure you get what''s best for you. I quite literally could not have had a better experience and will definitely use Ivan again for my next move!

I've had a pleasant experience working with Ivan , although I did not get to rent because of my current difficult/unique situation. Ivan was very patient and has been very communicative and clear along with his time and patience with me , which was very helpful and important when renting or for first timers. I hope to work with Ivan when my current situation gets better. Recommend!

We have decided to focus our search UWS and Ivan will be our first contact if we change our mind.

Ivan was great! After seeing another apartment, initially, he texted me later in the evening to let me know a more affordable apartment opened up. He was courteous about the time and called me to tell me that I should apply for an apartment that opened up literally 2 minutes before calling me. The process was quick and not stressful at all. He was nice, friendly and on top of everything. I am so happy with my new apartment!

Vlad and Ivan from Spire Group have been very helpful throughout the process of our apartment searching in LIC. They accommodate to our dates and time for the viewings. They listened to our needs and would not rush us into any signings. September - October is a busy season and things go really fast. They have def made it a frustration free experience working with Spire.

Working with Ivan was a great experience. He is very knowledgable of the Long Island City area and able to leverage his relationships with building management to get you the best deal possible. He will work tirelessly to find the perfect unit for your needs and is incredibly responsive to inquiries. I would definitely work with again and recommend to friends.

Craig
Working with Ivan and his team of realtors was a great experience. They are reliable, polite, very fast in understanding your needs and highly effective. I contacted one of them via Naked Apartments and the 3 of them communicated constantly until they found me the great deal a was looking for. In less than two hours I was putting down my application. Such a seamless process for a city that's not seamless at all. Highly recommended.

Very direct, helpful and informative person. Understands exactly what you need and shows apartments accordingly. He is the Go-to person for Long Island City. Thanks so much for your help Ivan!

Let me start by saying Ivan Palov really came to my relocating rescue!! When I recently found out that I was relocating to New York City with only a month’s notice, it really put me scrambling to find not only a place to live but a building that had all of the amenities that I was looking for as a young professional. As anyone knows, the market here can be daunting with thousands of units in hundreds of different neighborhoods.

Steven Heshley
The reviews speak for themselves. Ivan and his partner Vlad are the best. If I need to move apartments again, I'm not going to look for apartments themselves. I'm just going to contact Ivan and Vlad.

I had to rent an apartment sight unseen and Ivan was extremely helpful. He sent me videos and pictures of all the buildings and apartments and took the time to explain everything. He was always available to answer any question I might have and was always pending of my application status. Plus, he has good connections with the lease offices of the buildings and helped me go through the application process faster. If you are looking for an apartment in LIC, Ivan is the guy to go. I highly recommend him.

Ivan and his team were a pleasure to work with. Extremely responsive and helpful in locking in our new place.
July 2018
Over the past few weeks Ivan has been fantastic with helping us secure our new apartment in LIC. Regardless of the time day or night he was available to answer all our questions and went the extra mile again and again.
June 2018
I was initially not planning on working with a broker, but when I found myself a bit in over my head and encountered strong recommendations for Ivan's LIC expertise, I decided to give him a shot. He definitely met and exceeded any expectations I had. With 9+ years of market experience, he offers guidance that is hard to find no matter how much individual research you do (nuances of the neighborhood, quality of management companies, price trends, etc.). Ivan gave us the good, the bad, and the ugly, along with his own opinion, all without pressuring us to make any given decision. He also helped us manage the lease signing & approval process and remains a resource if we have any questions. Plus, he is a blast to hang with and made our whole search process more enjoyable. Strongly recommend him for anyone looking for an apartment hunt partner.
June 2018
My experience with Ivan was incredible! My boyfriend and I were looking for an apartment in Long Island City this summer and he made the process so easy. We were able to find a beautiful apartment within budget - all thanks to him.

Ashna Pai
Ivan’s group helped us find a 10/10 apartment. He followed up with us throughout the entire process from scheduling the viewing to signing the lease and was a pleasure to work with! I will definitely stick with this group in the future.

Alexandra DeVinney
Vlad and Ivan of Spire Group were amazing at finding me and my girlfriend an apartment in Long Island City. Vlad spent several hours showing us around the neighborhood, and every apartment he showed us was perfect. He knew every building like the back of his hand, and every doorman met him with a smile. We saw big units, units with amazing views, units in buildings with amenity stacked on amenity, and more.
May 2018
Ivan and Vlad were great. Showed me some nice apts but made sure we kept looking till I found the one I really wanted. Streamlined the process and pushed it through when a third party verification company slowed it down. Can't thank them enough, definitely recommended!!
May 2018
Gregg
Ivan and Vlad was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive. He asked us a few preliminary questions via text and set up multiple appointments for exactly what we wanted. Finding a new apartment in NYC is never a fun experience but they made it easy. We never felt pressured one way or the other. It felt like they truly wanted the best for us throughout the whole process. We honestly could not recommend him and the rest of the team enough. They helped us through the entire process. We just signed the lease to our dream apartment because of them! Thank you!
May 2018
Ivan was very helpful and gave me good advice. I look forward to working with him in the near future.

Ivan is the best. He was honest and upfront about the apartments I was looking for in the LIC area. He took the time to explain the search process, fees and went out of his way to find me a place that would be perfect. I would work with him anytime and recommend others to do the same.

Sean Thomas
Ivan is without a doubt the most knowledgeable broker in LIC. He was so wonderful to my girlfriend and I as we searched several apartments with him. He never rushed us, assisted us with questions, always offered to help or work with our schedule, and he REALLY helped us stay within our budget to get more “bang for our buck.”

I'd recommend Ivan to any friends/family looking for an apartment in LIC. He knows the area very well, he is super honest, and easily accessible. The turnaround time from me reaching out to him for a unit I was interested online to me signing a lease (on a different and BETTER unit) was about 4 days.
March 2018
Vanzi
Ivan is an excellent communicator, and is prompt to reply to inquiries. He's also very good at making suggestions -- a sign that he knows his inventory. Didn't rent the apartment, but that is no reflection on him.

Jeff
I worked with Ivan Palov and Vladislav Vladimirov to find an apartment in Long Island City recently. Being from out of state, they did a great job explaining the nuances of renting in NYC as well as compiling as many apartments to view as possible in the one day I had to see them. Vlad was very patient and thoughtfully informative while showing the apartments, while Ivan was quick to respond and an expert on all the details for me to know--they worked well together. They were easily accessible by email and phone from the beginning of my apartment search until the signing of my lease. They did a good job and I would recommend them for others searching for apartments as well!

Jenny
Ivan was very efficient with our time. He was able to show me all the buildings in LIC that fit my requirements and budget. He can be a bit rough around the edges but he is fast and efficient, so I didn't mind.

Allan Johns
Cruising around the real estate section of Facebook at 2am and I write a place for more info. A few minutes later, I get a response from a guy named Ivan. Ok, a fellow late-niter! So I reply and say 'If you're still up, rather than me typing all my needs, feel like a call?'... and my phone rang. Wow! Getting things done on *my* schedule. That's the first bonus.
February 2018
Hats off to Ivan Palov for going above and beyond to make our apartment hunting experience a positive one. Ivan really listened to us and what we wanted from our next apartment, before finding us the best unit in LIC and the move value. I can't wait to move in and enjoy the views of the Emprire State Building from the balcony in our new apt. If you're working with Spire, ask for Ivan!
February 2018
Marco
Ivan was super attentive and very helpful in helping me find an apartment in LIC. He helped streamline my search to the right buildings and pushed through my application so that it would be reviewed quickly. His knowledge of the area was invaluable.
February 2018
Ivan was great! He was able to show us multiple openings. He was very nice and kind. He spoke to us not as a broker but as a friend and that was great.
February 2018
Ivan Palov is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to LIC apartments. He is well connected with the leasing offices in each building and if it wasn't for him, I would not have had my application approved. My case was somewhat difficult so I needed someone who knew how to present it properly to management so my application could get approved. Throughout the process, Ivan proved to be not only a real estate expert but also, a legal adviser, a psychologist, a friend.
February 2018
Cyril R.
Ivan has been great to work with! He has been very timely in his responses and has been patient in answering all our questions and concerns. He knows the market well and gives good tips on saving money where you can! Definitely will recommend Ivan to my friends!

Ivan Palov was my LIC real estate agent. It could not have been an easier process. Ivan was able to find me a place within my budget and requirements. His honest communication was great from start to finish, any questions/doubts I had he answered straight forward. He's a nice guy who doesn't waste your time. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a place, great real estate agent!

Ivan was awesome to work with! He knows LIC very well and will work to get you into an apt in your price range. He’s very receptive and answered all of my questions to make it a very easy process. If you’re looking for an apt in LIC you should definitely work with Ivan as he’ll know the most about the area!

We found an amazing apartment with the help of Vlad and Ivan. Vlad showed us so many good options and listened to what was important to us in an apartment, and even helped weigh pros and cons to each place.
January 2018
I was very skeptical about working with brokers prior to this experience, but Ivan Palov really changed my mind. While a lot of brokers you come across in NYC can be pushy and hide information from you, this is not Ivan's way of working. He gave us all the information upfront, and answered all questions honestly (and there were a lot of questions!). He knows the market extremely well, and makes a real effort to get to know you - so he can make a perfect match. The process of finding an apartment went very smoothly because of his help, even when I was situated abroad at the time! I doubt there are many brokers who are able to work with clients remotely - Ivan is definitely a gem. He was very responsive and attentive, and worked within our requirements and price range. If you're looking for your next home, I would highly recommend you reach out to Ivan.
January 2018
I recently had the pleasure of working with Ivan Palov while looking for an apartment in Long Island City. Ivan was incredibly knowledgeable, helpful and honest. He made the process stress-free for me especially because he was able to remember details about each apartment we saw making it easy for me to compare the differences later and ultimately make a decision. He was more responsive than any broker I have ever worked with and quick! Ivan always got right back to me and was happy to answer all (there were many) of my questions about the building I was considering. Thereafter, he kept in touch during the application and lease signing process to guide me along as needed. I highly recommend working with Ivan!
January 2018
Jessica
Ivan and Vlad were absolutely wonderful! Extremely professional and responsive as I needed to find an apartment in 2 days. They both went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared to make a decision in a short time. I have worked with a lot of brokers in my time in NYC and they are by far someone you can trust to get you what you want/need, extremely knowledgeable of the area and won’t waste your time! Highly recommend!
January 2018
Tara Crumlish
Ivan and Vlad were a pleasure to work with. They were both very responsive and punctual. They worked well with me to find an apartment within my price range and that had the amenities that I was looking for. They seem like genuinely kind people who had my best interest in mind.

Julie Norman
Ivan helped me find an apartment in LIC in essentially two days. As a first time renter, and a newcomer to New York, I really appreciated his candid advice and suggestions. He is very familiar with the LIC area, he is professional and responsive, and he helped me fly through the entire leasing process. It was a pleasure working with Ivan.
December 2017
I contacted Ivan only a few days ago, and have just signed my lease today. He was extremely helpful throughout the process, being bluntly honest, flexible, considerate, and timely in responding to all of my questions and texts/calls, regardless of the hour. You can tell how much he cares about his clients and truly wants to help you find the best option available given your needs/budget. It's clear that this is a full-time passion for him, not just some part-time job. I'd gladly work with Ivan again and he'd be my first choice if I wanted to look for another apartment in the future.

Ivan is an incredible agent. Extremely knowledgeable of the Long Island City area knows every nook and cranny of the area, and how to get you what you're looking for. Very hard working and honest. I can't recommend him enough.

This review is for Ivan Palov with Spire Group. I have moved in the last 5 years 3 times and I really really hate brokers. From misleading ads, lack of manners, outright lies to enormous fees and shady business operations, there was nothing positive that I can remember from my experience with brokers so far. However, finding an apartment without a broker in New York is almost impossible. I reached out to Ivan after I saw a listing he posted online and actually after checking him out on Yelp. All his reviews were so good, that it even looked a little suspicious to me. Anyway, after I wrote to him he LITERALLY responded in 20 seconds asking about my maximum budget, move-in date, and availability to see the place. I responded adequately and we arranged a viewing of a place with an agreement that he will show me other comparable units in the area as well. So he did. He took me on a tour and showed me 6 buildings (with more than one apt in some of them) in about 1 and a half hour. I can't emphasize how blatantly honest he was about EVERY SINGLE thing I asked him, regardless dumb or valid. He answers straight away and his answers were not what I always wanted to hear but they were the absolute truth, and I highly appreciated that. What impressed me the most is that everyone in the buildings we visited knew him and greeted him with a smile. He has excellent relations with management (at least at locations he showed me). Ivan is very friendly and easy to like, serious about his business, fast in responding, hard-working and has well-established connections with management (which is very important). I am a hard reviewer but I will gladly and happily give him 5 stars. I would give 6 if I could. Reach out to him, you will be happy.

We needed an apartment in literally (7) days--we only gave him 24-48 hours notice, and BOY, did Ivan Palov deliver! (I hate being this person, truly, it drives me insane when other people do this to me, but it was a family emergency and we needed to act FAST!!!) Ivan was SUPER nice AND very detailed, professional, and amiable through the whole process and I'm one of those annoying people with high expectations of customer service as I work in the service industry as well (on the hospitality end). He made the process quick, easy, and painless. This is my first ever apartment with my new hubby, and suffice to say it won't be my last. Thank you for everything Ivan--I had heard nightmare stories about renting an apartment in NYC. I was prepared to come crying and fighting back tears and screams. I was smiling through the whole process! Ivan is a gentleman and a scholar. We found an amazing apartment in LIC that we would not have been able to find without Ivan. THANK YOU, IVAN!!! All The Best, Kelly & Derek The Happy Newlyweds :)

I had the pleasure of working with Ivan Palov recently and I must say he truly exceeded our expectations! Upon meeting us he was so positive, patient, and professional- he was genuinely enthusiastic about helping us find a home. He clearly explained to us what the rental requirements would be and gave us an honest opinion of what we're looking at. As a side note I should add that we did speak with a few other brokers but even over the phone they didn't seem very knowledgeable or experienced in that particular area and we got a sense they may be a bit fishy. From the moment when we got Ivan on the phone we felt we could trust him - something tough to say for the majority of NYC brokers. He not only knows LIC, he lives and breathes it. We saw 5 apartments with him and he was great about listening to us and getting our input in consideration. He only showed us apartments we were interested in and all of them were good matches. We found the "perfect" one in 2 days and because of Ivan's excellent follow-through we were prepared with our paperwork. We applied and luckily were approved quickly. All in all, I can't recommend him enough- he's so knowledgeable, funny, and professional: it doesn't get better than that!

Ivan Palov did a fantastic job! He found my sister and I the perfect apartment. Ivan's enthusiasm and passion as a broker went a long way. At times he appeared to be a financial adviser, designer and even a friend. Ivan is very responsive, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He showed us both no fee and broker fee apartments all within our budget range and desired location. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else looking for a new place. THANK YOU, IVAN

Ivan is very knowledgeable with regards to Long Island City apartments and took our needs and budget seriously to find us a great place. He is very responsive and available via text and email and was able to set up viewings within minutes of my initial request. We appreciated his transparency and the units he showed us were not far off from his online listing in terms of quality and price. He followed up frequently and kept us updated if units we were interested in were sold or likely to go off the market soon. All and all Ivan can keep up with the rapid pace of NYC rentals, which was a great help! Thank you Ivan!

He even introduced me to the staff of the building, which made me feel comfortable and at home! Ivan is the best of the best and I would highly recommend to anyone hunting for an apartment. I will definitely be working with Ivan in the future for my next apartment!

I knew I wanted an apartment in Long Island City, and I was hoping to find someone who knew the area well and could get me a good place in the area. After finding them via a web search for apartments in LIC, Ivan and his colleague AJ more than exceeded these expectations, and I ended up with an ideal place well within my price range in a great location.

I was incredibly fortunate and incredibly lucky to have Ivan as my first agent - he was genuine, trustworthy, knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and effective.

Contacted Ivan about a week ago to see and apartment and 4 days later, I had my lease signed - very quick and efficient process. Management had some trouble with my papers, but Ivan acted as an intermediary and did a fantastic job in resolving all issues. He was very courteous and responded quickly to all my enquiries even after business hours. Great guy! 5/5! Would use his services again!

New York-ers approach agents to help them find find an apartment. Ivan advertises himself as someone who is "sensitive to his clients’ needs" and "takes pride in his ability to solve problems.”

My roommate and I are looking for an 2 bedroom apartment in Long Island city for moving in next month. Ivan and AJ are very helpful finding us a nice 2Br with amazing price that is lower than most of the luxurious apartment nearby. Everything is done pretty fast and we are about to move in after only 2 weeks searching. Thanks Ivan and AJ for all the effort!

My fiance and I just met with Ivan about a week and a half ago and have already found and signed for an apartment for and April 1 move-in. I didn't think that was possible in NY but Ivan/Spire made it possible by having access and a great relationship with the brand new buildings that were just starting to fill up the space. This has made my life exponentially less stressful. We were very lucky to not have a long hunting process and were confident settling on the first place we saw due to Ivan/AJ confidence in the building and the deal we were getting. Ivan is who we dealt with entirely except for the showing of the apartment - he was an excellent communicator, professional and approachable from the beginning to past the lease signing. He was an invaluable resource for us throughout the entire process. Thanks Ivan!

My girlfriend and I were looking for an apartment for a couple of months, but could not find one that suited our needs. We saw an ad for the perfect apartment and called Ivan Palov to schedule an appointment. To my surprise, Ivan stated that there are many apartments similar to that one in the same area, LIC, and around the same price range so we agreed to meet the next morning. Not only did Ivan and his colleague, AJ, show me apartments meeting our needs, these apartments were actually cheaper than the one we inquired about! We saw about 4 or 5 apartments in total and we applied for one that same day and were approved within a week. Ivan and AJ were personable, professional, and hilarious individuals and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new place. They also seemed to have my interests in mind and provided us with valuable information regarding the apartment and the neighborhood. They were definitely a pleasure to work with!!!

I was lucky enough to work with AJ Tchernev and Ivan Palov recently. AJ was the one who showed me around and I couldn't have asked for a better experience - he was enthusiastic, genuinely knowledgeable about the area and made sure to ask honest questions about my requirements as we went through. There had obviously been consideration paid up front to the requests I'd laid out and each and every place he showed me would have been wonderful before finally settling upon a perfect place. Unlike other broker experiences, I never felt rushed or pressured and as a result I had a completely stress-free hunting experience - something I never would have anticipated! I cannot recommend these two highly enough.

It was really a great pleasure working with Ivan Palov and his colleague AJ. They are true professionals. They help a lot not only during the searching but also contract process and after move-in. Their most significant difference than others is "they are following up even days after you sign the contract." These guys are real deal! Their explanations and detail oriented approach to apartment search helps you find the right future home. Since Ivan's first email response, I understood that this guy knows what he is doing. AJ's talking skills and Ivan's frank approach will help you to save more money, besides finding you your dream home. I definitely recommend them as your next apartment brokers! Thanks for everything.

We needed an apartment in literally (7) days--we only gave him 24-48 hours notice, and BOY, did Ivan Palov deliver! (I hate being this person, truly, it drives me insane when other people do this to me, but it was a family emergency and we needed to act FAST!!!)

Ivan and Andrian were really easygoing and professional and made my house hunt really smooth. Ivan was responsive to my initial enquiry, and was very patient even when my phone died and I had difficulty contacting him at the time of our showing. He checked which buildings I had already viewed so he could show me only new places, and I loved the places that I was shown. They went all out to help me get my application in as soon as possible and were very prompt in communicating with the building's management. Thanks guys for making the process a breeze!

Ivan Palov did a fantastic job! He found my sister and I the perfect apartment. Ivan's enthusiasm and passion as a broker went a long way. At times he appeared to be a financial adviser, designer and even a friend. Ivan is very responsive, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He showed us both no fee and broker fee apartments all within our budget range and desired location. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else looking for a new place. THANK YOU, IVAN (and Andrian for your assistance).

Ivan is the ideal broker: he was efficient, he respected my stated monthly budget (more than I did, even), and 4 of the 8 apartments he showed me had no broker fee. I highly recommend him, as he took a huge amount of stress off the table for me.

I highly recommend broker Ivan Palov from Spire Group and here is why... I had just landed a new job in Manhattan and I was looking for housing in the Queens area. Though I was not in a super rush, I definitely did not want to commute for any extended period of time. Like most people, the thought of moving, much less to the NYC area, can be somewhat overwhelming, intimidating and head spinning... However, I am happy to say, that I was fortunate to find Ivan Palov to assist me in this effort. Ivan is affable and kind, concerned and sincere, laid back but interested, and most importantly of all... honest. Without a doubt, Ivan was the sole reason I was able to find the perfect apartment so quickly, so easily, and with so little stress. Ivan is / will... 1. Take you to as many or as few properties as you like, and work around YOUR schedule. 2. Show you the apartments that meet YOUR financial, spacial and locale requirements. 3. Tell you all the pros AND cons of each property and area. 4. Will answer any questions you may have. 5. Will tell you not only about the property but the surrounding area i.e.transportation, food, shopping etc. 6. Not pushy at all. After introducing the property, Ivan will let you explore, take pictures, and take your time thinking and considering. But he will remain available and attentive to any questions you may have for him. 7. Stay in contact with you and be responsive throughout the application and leasing process. I cannot say enough about how good my experience was with Ivan Palov. I am not one to write a review on the internet, in fact this may be the first time I ever have, but the man should be recognized, and I wish him further success. I am now in a gorgeous one bedroom in Long Island City, and I couldn't be happier. If you choose to go with Ivan Palov, and I truly believe you should... Tell him Danny sent ya!

Ivan helped me find the apartment that I wanted. He quickly grasped what I was looking for and only showed me places that were exactly what I had described. My apartment was a great deal, much lower than the market rate. Overall, I saved time and a handsome amount of money by using Ivan's services.

It is with great pleasure that i write this recommendation for real estate agent Ivan Palov. I met Ivan for a rental apartment in manhattan and was so impressed by his professionalism. I got everything i was asking for and much more. Everything went smoothly and therefore i highly recommend Ivan Palov for any real estate need. We met on a business level and developed a friendship that will last for many years. Sincerely, B. Konstantinos

Ivan is not only an exceptional professional but also a really honest person who is genuinely concerned with his Client's needs and preferences. He will go above and beyond to find you your dream apartment and will do so with a smile on his face. I have always dreaded the infamous NYC apartment search, but working with Ivan has been anything but dreadful. He would not let me lose hope that there is a place for me out there and it is just a matter of finding it, and found it he did. Don't waste time looking for the right ad, reach out to the right broker, Ivan Palov!
