“...I did everything with that great mad joy you get when you return to New York City.”
- Jack Kerouac’s Lonesome Traveler

For me, this quote not only sums up the spirit of our life in “New York, New York,” but also captures the vibrant nature of our unique marketplace which is like no other in the world.

To successfully navigate this ever-changing cityscape is to surround yourself with key experienced, proven professionals who best understand your real estate needs and goals and how to successfully relate them to the ins and outs of our small town.

With 20 years of experience, I have earned the confidence of countless clients who have entrusted me with their own as well as friends and family’s varying, ongoing real estate needs. This has enabled me to build a thriving business on referrals and repeat clients, each of whom credit my straight-forward and honest approach for their continued loyalty. I have also gained the respect of colleagues for my willingness to roll up my sleeves and jump into the trenches. There is no better way to educate yourself than getting out there and develop an intimate understanding of every property you can to increase the likelihood of securing clients’ perfect home.

Along the way, I have been recognized throughout the industry for achieving outstanding results:

I believe in a collaborative approach to selling, as many of the best ideas come from my sellers. Collective thinking brings creativity, innovation and results, ultimately leading to meticulous execution throughout the sales process to deliver what each seller expects and deserves.

I live with my wife and daughter on the Upper West Side, the neighborhood I have called home for the past 23 years. From our co-op, where I have served on the Board of Directors for the last three years, I can walk or run in Central Park with my family, watch a concert at the Beacon Theater, and frequent countless other neighborhood institutions ranging from Café Luxembourg (for my favorite Luxemburger with a Red) to Épicerie Boulud for merguez and some suds to even Grays Papaya (for…well, a superior dog).

I was originally born in Richmond, Virginia and grew up in Maryland, just one mile south of the Mason Dixon line. After graduating with a degree in Mathematical Economics from Hampden-Sydney College, the 10th oldest school in the country, I spent 5 years in Washington, DC working as a financial consultant. I also studied at The National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts and I’m a former actor who once moonlighted as a stand-up comedian. Many years ago, I authored APPLE PIE - The Real Ingredients for Buying and Selling Your Slice.

We’ve known Roberto for 13 years. In our first transaction, circumstances did not allow us to formally work together. Nevertheless he was available, helpful, and, most importantly, absolutely straightforward. When he did represent us in two subsequent transactions, he worked tirelessly on our behalf. Most importantly, in what is somewhat of an opaque market, he provided thoughtful guidance while always being honest, transparent, and loyal. – John & Zeina P.

We met Roberto during an open house when he was representing a seller. We dropped out of the bidding after the price skyrocketed, and Roberto called us afterward noting another unit in the building was up for sale (which he did not represent) suggesting it might be of interest to us. We bought that apartment and have used him multiple times in selling and buying apartments as our family and needs expanded. Roberto has also managed everyone we have referred to him masterfully in both NYC and tri-state referrals. In our experience, Roberto has the integrity we all want either as a buyer or seller. For a buyer, he will share insights about the residence, the building, its management reputation and minutiae (“This apartment has the master bedroom facing the trash pickup alley...the unit is on the direct path of the fire department two blocks away.”) For a seller: “The highest-bidding buyer does not have the financial strength to pass the board review.” We would only consider any Manhattan real estate transaction with Roberto's consultation and representation. – Mary H. & Greg P.

A two-bedroom apartment became available in my building and I wanted to trade up from my one-bedroom. Roberto was the agent that I enlisted to assist with this endeavor. Time was of the essence since I needed to sell my apartment before being in a position to submit an offer. Roberto’s market intelligence and business savvy were instrumental in bringing my apartment to market in record time. Roberto has impeccable ethics, is exceedingly responsive, and is a consummate professional. A buyer emerged for the two-bedroom apartment so unfortunately, my quest to upgrade did not proceed. Nonetheless, it was a wonderful experience working with Roberto and if I should find myself in a situation that needs a real estate agent, I would not hesitate for a moment to contact Roberto. – Rob G.
