  • Leslie Weinberg— Buyer

    Ethan Leifer, from Compass, is the third real estate professional I hired to try to sell my apartment. One entire year, and two other real estate "professionals" had gotten me nowhere except frustrated and on the verge of throwing my hands in the air and giving up trying to sell. Ethan is the first person to actually pursue potential buyers. He not only knew how to stage the apartment properly, but he knew what was even more important - how to engage with potential buyers and actually "sell". The previous real estate professionals would just stand around, answer any questions asked by people who came to look, and remain mute while people walked through the apartment, but they never actually persevered the way Ethan did. He knew how to establish a relationship with potential buyers, talked up the apartment, answered questions before they were even asked, and made the apartment into something they could not afford to let go. I discovered very quickly that while knowledge is important, it is not enough. To sell you also need tenacity, and Ethan is tenacious. Not only did I get a good number of offers, but the offers were higher than I would have hoped for, and I wound up selling for more than I ever expected.

    Do not bother with any other real estate professional. Go straight to Ethan Leifer. You will not be sorry.
