Brian was the realtor for the owner of the apartment we rented. We appreciated Brian's friendly style. He provided us with helpful information and was very responsive to our requests. Brian knew many people in the building where we chose to live and connected us to valuable resources and information. He was also very patient during the stressful application process and helped answer many questions. Overall, we enjoyed working with Brian.

Brian sold to me a house in Harlem . The deal was a bit hard because it was an SRO and paperwork needed to be filled, it was a lengthy process but he got it done all by himself!!!. I am impressed by his calm nature , devotion to his clients , and his professional attitude . Working with many agents in the pass, Brain outshines them all. I highly recommend Brain as a listing broker and as a sales agent. Thank you Brain, for once buying a house was a smooth, and fun.

We moved from the UK to the US and Brian was the absolute best! He was responsive, helpful, insightful and generally a brilliant guide through the entire process. Finding someone trustworthy, hard working and generally such a nice person made our move so easy and the whole process less stressful. We'd highly recommend Brian and if we need to move again, we'll be back in touch with him!

We loved working with Brian, he's a very soft-spoken, nice guy, very professional. He was able to find a buyer quickly, and had a very attentive and caring attitude throughout our experience with him. I would recommend Brian, he's a rare find in the real estate world!

Working with Brian has been an incredible experience. He is extremely professional and reliable. He helped me quickly rent my apartment and took care of all the details. I'm a first time landlord and Brian went out of his way to ensure I understood all the steps involved in renting the apartment and spent time explaining everything to my husband and I in detail. He was very respectful of our wishes and over-delivered by quickly renting our apartment to a highly qualified renter. I highly recommend Brian and would definitely work with him again.

Gwen and David Baker reviewed Brian Silvestry 05/10/2015 Helped me buy a home.... Brian was an exceptional broker that helped us to fulfill our dream of owning an apartment in NYC. He was never pushy or aggressive with us which was a refreshing departure from our other experience with area realtors. He was professional and very helpful during the entire process and made sure to show us properties that met our requirements. He was completely reliable and proactive in identifying appropriate potential apartments--we never missed any opportunities when working with Brian. Our negotiations went very smoothly without any hitches mostly due to Brian's diligence. We highly recommend working with Brian and will definitely work with him again should we decide to move.

Daniel Kaighn Perlman reviewed Brian Silvestry 05/11/2015 Helped me sell a home.... Brian helped me sell a one-bedroom apartment in an expeditious and superlative manner. I would recommend Brian Silvestry to anyone interested in selling an apartment in New York. Brian's extensive knowledge of the real estate market, his marketing acumen, attention to detail, responsiveness and confidence made my experience one that was both profitable, easy and surprisingly quick. Additionally, Brian is very friendly and a real mensch. Honestly, you can't go wrong if you choose to have Brian handle your sale.

We unreservedly recommend Brian Silvestry at 11 on a scale of 0-10! We initially met him at an open house for another apartment sale in our building, before deciding to hire a broker. We were very impressed with his professionalism, marketing/sales approach and low key but persuasive demeanor. We've known many real estate brokers over the years, including two in our in our apartment building, but none equaled his talents. Once we met to discuss possibly hiring him, we were so convinced he could do the job, we immediately signed an exclusive contract on fair terms. Within one week, he obtained a buyer at our asking price,who happens to live in our building and had been looking for a place like ours for some time. Because he lives in our building and has represented many purchasers over the years,Brian was able to work smoothly with the building's management. He also found two young college students to help us pack our personal papers, which took many hours, and they did excellent work.. It was not easy moving out after 40+ years in our apartment. With Brian's assistance, it was less challenging. Janet and Sal Accardo

I originally decided to work with Brian Silvestry because I knew him casually as a neighbor, knew that he worked in real estate and had always found him to be a very pleasant person. I also assumed that as a resident of the building, he would be familiar with all the quirks of working with the Board and with the management company, which would be an advantage. It all worked very well. Brian was quick off the mark, interested and had very helpful suggestions. He found me my tenants quickly, and judging by the meeting I had with them, they seem to be very decent people. He also facilitated all the paperwork and worked with the building Board, etc., much much better than I would have been able to. He was at all times responsive and answered questions with no delay. I would certainly recommend him to anybody I knew who was looking for a real estate agent. Josephine Novak, 400 Central Park West, New York, N.Y. 10025

Vivian and William Brett reviewed Brian Silvestry 05/11/2015 Currently working together..... Brian is in the process of helping us buy a larger apartment. He is impressively trustworthy, honest, and patient. There's never a moment when we have felt coerced and pressured to commit to a purchase (which is not the norm in NYC real estate). Moreover, Brian has genuinely listened to our needs and demonstrates an expert understanding of real estate and the current frenetic market. Stated plainly, there's a moment when you meet professional who you know will represent you for the rest of your real estate life. Brian is that person for us.

I previously knew Brian only through a friendly word or two in passing as I walked my dogs in Central Park, but he turned out to be the perfect realtor for me. You expect your realtor to aggressively market your property, obtain a fair price and bring it all to close in a timely manner. Brian did not disappoint, even with a somewhat difficult buyer. What you can't necessarily expect is for him to take care of everything you should have done for yourself. I called Brian literally days before I moved from New York knowing my apartment needed to be repainted and my floors refinished. I was in the middle of packing and other frenzied activity due to a death in my immediate family. Brian was there in a flash to take control of the situation and put my mind at ease. Through his network of quality, reasonably-priced service providers, he was able to get the work done with no involvement on my part. When we got the offer we wanted and he realized I didn't know a real estate attorney, he quickly connected me with a quality attorney who agreed to handle my contract at a reduced fee. When we discovered another repair that needed to me made during the process, he also took care of that. He was present at all viewings of my property by potential buyers to optimize the viewing experience. My primary responsibility in all this was just to sign contracts and write checks, knowing Brian was taking care of everything. I would highly recommend Brian.

Philip Bornstein reviewed Brian Silvestry 05/10/2015 Worked together as colleagues.... I have been involved with many transactions with which Brian was involved over the past decade plus. Brian is a terrific real estate broker, deal maker and friend. Brian is smart, caring, and dedicated to his clients. He thinks outside of the box, fights for his clients and has great integrity in a field where that quality is often lacking. Bottom line- Brian is a solid citizen and a guy you can trust.

Brian is a delight to work with: very knowledgeable, engaged, friendly, respectful, transparent and professional. We recently worked with him in purchasing an apartment on Central Park West and have only good things to say about him. Rob Nixon and Anne McClintock

Brian has been more than a broker. He's been an advisor. I say has been because he has continued to provide valuable service even after the rental contract has been signed and I've moved into my apartment. Brian is polite, patient and knowledgeable. If you choose him as your broker, you will be fortunate, indeed. Lucy Shahar

Choosing Brian to sell our apartment was one of the best decisions we've made. He handled everything, even when the buyer became difficult as we approached closing. He went far beyond the call of duty in checking the buyer's board application, following up with lawyers and brokers, and ensuring we got to closing. We were not living in the apartment at the time, and knowing Brian was taking care of everything gave us such peace of mind. He excelled in every area - he got us a great price, sold the apartment quickly and helped us get to closing. I cannot recommend him more highly. (Heather & Ben Grizzle)

Brian Silvestry has made this process of selling our condo so much easier and so much more comfortable than I could ever have expected. This could have been a very nerve-racking experience for us but Brian has been leading us through the process with very gentle care. He has been there every step of the way to answer every question we had, even when we were afraid that the questions may sound foolish. He never made us feel that any question we needed to ask was too much for him to answer. He also didn't make us wait for answers. When I would email a question to him, I would get an answer back very quickly. That's something that was very important to me. When I needed a real estate lawyer for this sale, he found one for me. He truly made us feel that we have nothing to worry about and that he would and could take care of every detail. I expect a real estate broker to be knowledgeable about his/her business, but there is more to this than just the business part. There is the human aspect of it all. This is about people making big changes in their lives and dealing with all the emotional repercussions that that entails. At all times, Brian was kind, understanding, patient and respectful of our feelings and any personal situations that came up. He made the selling of our condo much less scary than it could have been. With no compunction whatsoever, we would highly recommend Brian Silvestry as a real estate broker to anyone. Len Berman and Pat Oles
