"Michael Bhagwandin was our real estate agent for our New York apartment over the last month. We couldn't have done the process without him. He coached us through the process methodically to ensure all details were considered. He was nothing but professional from start to finish. Would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in New York!!"

"We have been working with Michael Bhagwandin for NYC investment condo since spring of 2019. Michael demonstrated exceptional market knowledge and an intuitive sense of his client tastes and preferences. He found us the right apartments that met our criteria and over a period of a few weekshelped us with the right real estate lawyer, insurance broker managed the board review process andwithin two months. He was very open, transparent, and kept us apprised every step of the way. All parties were mutually satisfied. We closed swiftly. Michael was always available to answer questions. He is extremely honest, upfront, and very communicative. Michael found the right tenant within a month and navigated the entire process with the building management. Then covid came. Our tenant considered leaving NYC, Michael intervened, and we managed to keep the tenant while offering some mutually amenable modification for the tenant to remain in the unit. We are now embarking on a new tenant nearly post pandemic and within a month have secured another exceptional tenant as we turn the corner out of the pandemic. Thank you, Michael. We will continue to work with Michael as we expand our interest into another apartment in NYC."

"Michael Bhagwandin - from beginning to end he made the whole process easy and stress free! He is very knowledgeable about the business and the market. He was always very easy going and never made us feel in over our heads. He always provided honest advice and feedback on all the properties we looked at. He made homebuying for my wife and I such a smooth process especially as first time homebuyers. Highly recommend him for professionalism and above all a happy, upbeat demeanor. We highly recommend him and wish him all the success!"
- Hersh A.
"Despite my pandemic-related reservations in March 2021, Michael Bhagwandin helped me find an amazing deal and close on a luxury apartment in Harlem. His knowledge of market timing, ability to hone in on exactly what I was looking for, and friendly demeaner put me at ease and established a real sense of trust. He's extremely buttoned up (his assistant confirmed each appointment and followed up), and he also has amazing resources (he referred me to my moving company, as well as my lawyer). Thank you Michael!"
- Joe C.
" Working with Michael was such a wonderful experience. As someone who came into the home buying process with zero experience and very little information, he immediately put me at ease. He's so warm, friendly, and truly wants the best for everyone he works with. He's also so knowledgeable and anticipated every question I had, as well as every question I didn't know enough to even have yet. Being a first time home buyer is so overwhelming, especially in New York City, but working with Michael made me feel like it was something that I could actually do."
" Working with Michael to purchase my first home was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Michael is very patient and was kind enough to educate me on the complicated buying process in New York. We visited upwards of 30 apartments, and Michael was there for every tour. Michael is equally professional and personable, and I have no doubt any other buyer will enjoy working with him. "
"Michael's knowledge of the rental market along with his experience and outright candidness working with the various real estate building representatives around town made finding an apartment in NYC seem effortless! He listens to his clients carefully, understanding our needs, likes, and dislikes, and truly helped us in finding the ideal fit."
"Michael was a pleasure to work with! Not only did he have a full understanding of the current state of a quickly changing market and the neighborhoods I was interested in, he was also fully available via text as I went through my decision making process. Moving and dealing with real estate is a highly emotional process especially in NYC and even more so during a pandemic but Michael was both knowledgeable and supportive through the entire experience. "
"I want to thank Michael for his wonderful efficiency. After meeting him to sell my apartment on 57th street, he gave me an estimate and explained the direction to move it quick. Michael organized immediately open houses, prepared the brochure as quick as the wind. I could not believe his motivation. He promotes the sale and were always prompt. In a period of 2 weeks! Sold! Michael followed to the end and organized the sale of draperies, lightings, thank you Michael to be such a professional broker."
"From the outset, Michael was nothing short of exceptional during our purchase process. Michael has a natural ability to build rapport with all stakeholders, as well having a strong sense of when definitive action is required. He is very courteous, polite and responsive, with a deep understanding of New York’s property market. Not only would we use Michael again and recommend him, he’s become a very good friend."
- Bryne & Leanne
"It was great working with Michael! I could tell he was very experienced in this field, and he created a great listing for my unit. He communicated very well, was always on top of things, and would follow up with the right people if necessary. If I ever had any questions, he was quick to answer them and extremely helpful. Looking forward to working with Michael again!"
"After two months of failed attempts to rent my 1 bedroom on my own during the COVID market difficulties I decided to hire Micheal to help me. Long story short, he succeeded, and I was happy with the overall experience. He was providing insight and updates at every step. Particularly useful were the insights about the ever evolving market he was able to gather from the feedback of prospective tenants, who were simultaneously shopping around. This led us to review the rental approach, and ultimately rent the apartment. I found Michael to be a proactive, dynamic and engaging agent and a great overall guy to boot."
"Michael was great! He sold our apartment quickly and efficiently at full asking price. I will definitely recommend him to others "
"My husband and I really enjoyed working with Michael. He has a great personality and made us feel at ease. We felt that he’s our advocate and is looking out for what’s best for us. He gave good advice which we felt was crucial to navigating the NYC real estate market. "
- Irina & Joey
"First, my wife and I can not say enough good things about Michael. I know that sounds too good to be true, however it's more than true. From the first time we interacted with Michael, a year prior to really pursuing our search for our first home, he was engaged, responsive, professional, and observant. All qualities we wanted in a broker, he had, and then some. Once we started really pursuing, he was relentless and allowed us to be creative versus just pushing us in a direction....which eventually got us to where he thought we would end up. Going through the experience of purchasing a new home (again first time) with Michael was priceless. It left us with the knowledge needed to make a purchase again, and of course, Michael would be right there with us! "
- Marissa & Nick
"As a first time buyer it is difficult navigating through the process of purchasing a Co-op. Michael did a great job walking me through the different stages. He took the time to show me different locations and different types of apartments to help me find what worked best for me."
- David P
"BEST. BROKER. EXPERIENCE. EVER. Michael and his team made our very time sensitive search for a reliable renter a breeze. Reliable. Polite. On time. Great and easy communication. Very Professional. We got the amount we asked for and are very happy with our renter. Do yourself a favor and work with Michael and his team."

Michael Bhagwandin has helped guide me through 4 major real estate moves and truly is the best New York realtor / real estate agent! Knowledge of the market, responsiveness, actively having an opinion (that always ends up being right!) are just some of the things that make him so good. He also doesn't push you to purchase something not affordable just to make a few more bucks which is something I've seen in too many other brokers. For me what makes him truly great is the emotional support he provides. Buying and selling homes is an emotional process for me and Michael's patience and groundedness make all the difference. Highly recommend!
"New York real estate agent Michael Bhagwandin is a whirlwind of energy and enthusiasm. His honesty (candor) and integrity are essential traits for any good realtor relationship. He is a trusted advisor on matters of buyer selection and is reliable for realistic expectations, negotiation and board representation. You can trust him with the keys to your domicile and your decisions."
- George S.
"Working with Michael Bagwandin can be described with one word: seamless. As my New York real estate agent, selling my apartment and all the added extras that go along with open houses, listing and paper work, I never worried about anything. Michael and the team he works with took care of everything.m Anyone who works with Micheal is in great hands and I highly recommend him to anyone."
- Scott M.
"Michael Bhagwandin was my real estate agent on the sale of our NYC apartment. From beginning to end he made the whole process easy and stress free! He offered spot on advice on pricing, had great connections to help with staging and prepping all the way through the movers. He had a track record in our building and that continued with us. Highly recommend him for professionalism and above all a happy, upbeat demeanor. Wish him well in all future real estate ventures! "

" Michael helped me purchase my dream home in Brooklyn. He was thoughtful, punctual and extremely responsive. I had complete confidence that he was providing me with great advice, and helping me get the best price. He also gave me excellent referrals for the other professionals needed to get to closing. I recommend him to all my friends who are looking to buy or sell homes in NYC. "
"Michael is an enthusiastic and consummate professional who was able to secure me a qualified and reliable tenant during difficult market conditions at a rent that more than met my expectations. He ensured that the whole process was seamless and provided timely updates throughout. "
"Michael was amazing. I had recently arrived in New York and I had to find a place to live in a short amount of time. Upon our first conversation, he was a great listener and immediately understood what I needed. Very quickly, Michael put together some tours of potential options. Tours were a lot of fun and in the first one, he showed what I wanted. Michael's guidance was priceless. He knows how important it is to put love in everything we do. Always enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and proactive, he made me feel very welcome to New York. I look forward to working with him again on my next move. "
"Michael was highly recommended by a colleague when I needed to find an apartment in NYC. That recommendation could not have been more spot on. Michael was extremely knowledgeable about each neighborhood, called out specifics about the various options and amenities in the buildings and even provided information about commuting to my office, as well as, in and out of the city. He made working with the building representatives a breeze and brought things to my attention that I was unaware of even asking. He is professional, perceptive and personable. What could have been a stressful and disappointing experience was effortless and amazing."
"I have worked with Michael for the past several years. He is a wonderful real estate agent who is very professional and reliable. Michael has assisted me in renting more than 35 residential units in Brooklyn with no to minimum downtime. As a landlord's agent, I am very impressed with the competitive prices that Michael is able to achieve and the recommendations that he provides during the leasing. He is very knowledgeable of the real estate market and is easy to work with. I am happy to have Michael represent me and I am confident that you will be too if you retain him."

"Michael was great! He sold our apartment quickly and efficiently at full asking price. I will definitely recommend him to others."
"We had a terrific experience working with Michael to purchase a condo in the East Village. We are based in California and looking to purchase during a pandemic, so it was at times a complicated process but Michael was there to guide us every step of the way. His local knowledge of different lower Manhattan neighborhoods and condo boards was particularly helpful, as we had never purchased real estate in NYC before."
"Having Michael help with our apartment search made things so easy. From our initial meeting all the way through to completion, he was as eager as we were to find the perfect space. He combined excellent professional knowledge and personal experience to help us come to the right choice – all in all, a great experience and certainly recommended. "
"We are first time home owners and Michael came at the recommendation of a friend. We actually spoke with a few other brokers before meeting Michael but he’s by far the most enthusiastic, responsive and easy to work with broker. He took the time to educate us on the market and showed us different neighborhoods and made the buying process smooth and even fun! We would highly recommend Michael to any of our friends. Thanks for helping us find a new home!"
- Cecily & Michael
"Michael is a great friend and agent. After 37 years in the apartment, it was time to move on. Michael gave good advice on the market, comps and what we could expect going into a showing and sale. He held our hand and guided us the whole way. The final offer we got was in large part due to Michael's expertise. I will work with him again when we decide to move forward on buying another apartment. Meanwhile he keeps tempting me with new options!! "
