At first, we were daunted by the prospects of buying and selling in New York City, but the process was seamless and stress-free because of Brad's guidance. We cannot imagine having gone through the process without his support. Over the past nine years, we have recommended Brad to a number of friends and colleagues looking to buy, sell and rent. All of our referrals have had nothing but positive things to say about him, and they have gone out of their way to thank us for referring him to them. We highly recommend Brad without reservation.

We can not recommend Brad Malow highly enough! We first consulted with him pre-renovation and he gave us insightful ideas on what upgrades we needed to sell our apartment. Once we fully renovated, we interviewed 5 agents (including ones that are part of real estate tv shows) and Brad spent the most time with us, had the most thorough comparables, promised more marketing and gave us the highest target price. We liked his sincerity and go-getter attitude, so we went with him. He did a truly stunning video and in the end got us a record price for our building. We had a few bumps, and he was always on top of things and made things happen. Besides being a great agent-- he's a really good guy. We are so happy that we picked Brad.

Brad came highly recommended from a trusted work partner, and lived up to and beyond that. He is a true professional, a very personable hustler who has long-standing, credible relationships with other professionals and a sincere desire to help that was matched by his doing in every way. He had a number of reasons he could have declined working with me, and he chose to find positive solutions and looked for ways to say yes, not just add me to a list. I truly felt like I was the only person he was working with. He was prompt, always did exactly what he said he would, and more. I have bought and sold and rented and leased properties in various places around the U.S. as an individual, and he is clearly in the rare category of someone I can offer an unqualified recommendation for others to trust in this very difficult process of looking for a place to live in NYC.
— Daniel Garrison
Brad is an outstanding professional with superb follow-up, creative and innovative sales initiatives using all opportunities to advertise our Greenwich Village coop, including social media, videos and other more traditional approaches and made us feel we were the only customers he had. We recommend him wholeheartedly.
— Anthony Limberakis
Brad was incredibly organized, thoughtful, and responsive. He guided me through the entire process, explaining each step with care and patience. He put together well-planned and well-researched open house schedules, provided guidance on questions to ask and things to look for in properties, and provided expert advice on the offer and contract process. Throughout the complex process of purchasing real estate in New York City, Brad helped me understand each step and complete the transaction. Emails were always responded to quickly, and no question was ever too stupid. His dedication and patience were unfailing. I would highly recommend Brad to any prospective buyer.
— Judy Reeves
I first used Brad as a broker in 2009, when he found tenants for my apt. (I decided to move to Brooklyn, but it wasn't a good time to sell my apt in Manhattan, so soon after the beginning of the recession). It was a relief back then to turn over the process of screening tenants to Brad. He found a couple who sailed through the board sublet approval process and were wonderful tenants. Never a late rent check and very few calls with requests over the five years they lived in my apt.

At the end of 2014, when they decided to move out, I turned to Brad again in the hope of selling the apt. Brad gave the apt a quick assessment and made suggestions of some easy and inexpensive steps I should take to improve the unit (painting the kitchen and bathroom, new toilet seat, etc). I know his suggestions made the apt much more marketable and his help with finding an inexpensive painter who could take on the job was appreciated. Brad first listed the apt on a Tuesday, had an open house the following Sunday, and there was an accepted offer on Monday.

Through the negotiations and contract phases, I felt like I had a trusted advocate in Brad. He kept me informed of any problems and, working with my attorney, he saw the sale through to its end. From the first visit to the closing, Brad was always quick to get back to me and also reached out regularly with updates. He is, truly, fantastic and I can't recommend him any more highly. He's also just a really nice guy—it was great to have a broker who I always felt was completely reliable, forthcoming, and who stayed calm even when I was nervous.
— John Newton
I had been renting in NYC for 10+ years. The thought of actually buying a co-op or condo was not only stressful but nerve racking. But then I met Brad Malow!!

Brad is not just a broker....He is an educator, a psychologist and a master of his craft all in one. He made sure we were always a step ahead of the game and that our necessary paperwork and financials were always in order while teaching us the why's and the how's along the way.

Both my wife and I highly recommend Brad. Not only will he find you exactly what you are looking for, he will make the process as stress-free as possible along the way.
— Daniel Wolman
Brad is personable, principled and has a good sense of humor, which is a pleasure when you are spending a few months of frustration shopping the NYC real estate market. He listens carefully to your preferences, does not waste your time with appts that will not be fruitful and has the patience of a saint. His knowledge of the market is well rounded on both the financial and neighborhood style spectrums. Available by phone or text within minutes, he was always patient and pleasant regardless of the hour. Preparation for both Co-op approval and closing was thorough and complete. I do not hesitate to recommend him and will definitely use him in the future.
— Judy Mcelynn
I had a great experience working with Brad to purchase my co-op. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all stages of the process. One of the most refreshing aspects of working with Brad, which I greatly appreciated, was the fact that he was not pushy. I felt that I received his honest opinion regarding potential bids and I never felt like he just wanted to make a sale. I believe he wanted to help me find the right place and was there to help guide me through my first purchase. I recommend Brad for anyone seeking a real estate broker and will definitely be in contact with him for any future transactions I may have! Buying a home is definitely stressful, but Brad helped make the process smooth.
— Lynn D'Eugenio
Brad was downright fantastic, he reached out to us via cold call, and I'm so thankful we responded. He handled both sides of our sale in a way that was transparent, efficient and professional. I can't even think of how much time and money he saved both parties.
— Ian Joseph
Brad is extremely knowledgeable about the NYC real estate market. He successfully navigated me through the process of buying the perfect investment property. He was very patient and clearly had my best interests at heart every step of the way. I'm sure things wouldn't have turned out as well without his expert guidance -- definitely recommend him.
— Eric Hughes
We could not be more pleased with the level of service Brad offers and would highly recommend using him. He is extremely knowledgeable with NYC Real Estate and very honest throughout the process. During our selling experience, he was very helpful in negotiations, presenting all options for us to make the best decision together. He understands his clients and their needs in this fast paced market. Do not look any further. Brad is the broker you want to work with.
— Andrey Kotikovsky
I have worked with Brad to both rent an apartment and buy a co-op apartment, and I can't imagine having gone through either of these processes without his knowledge and expertise. Brad thoroughly did his research on each great apartment he showed me, while also staying very attentive to my budget. What I most appreciated in both of my apartment searches with Brad was that he is quick to respond to emails and phone calls and makes sure to keep you in the know throughout the entire process. I have and will continue to recommend Brad to anyone I know in NYC who is looking to work with a wonderful real estate agent.
— Keely Scarlata
Brad was a tremendous guide and supportive person throughout the entire process. His knowledge and experience helped me develop a workable strategy to search for an apartment and this strategy eventually led to me buying an apartment. I think this was quite an accomplishment given we had to work within pretty tight budgetary requirements. Brad was able to match what I could afford with what I want which is no small feat given I was looking in lower Manhattan and the western neighborhoods of Brooklyn and I'm a very picky person.

Brad is an excellent realtor but what makes him a great partner in the process is his ability to listen, understand what you want, help you understand what you can afford, and identify apartments that suit your desires and your budget. I would also note I chose the word "partner" intentionally as Brad truly partners with you in your search and works closely with you to find the right place to call home. I think that style of working and that attitude is hard to find.

I have recommended Brad to friends and to one of my most important clients. Everyone in the apartment hunt should be lucky enough to work with Brad or someone like him.
— Trent Lethco
I could not more highly recommend Brad Malow. His professionalism, knowledge, accessibility, and experience are difficult to match in this saturated NYC real estate world. He has extensive knowledge of the neighborhoods in which we were looking and was realistic about the current state of the market. He diligently combed the listings a few times each week providing a perfectly crafted itinerary for open house outings. Even though there are apps like StreetEasy, Brad was always ahead of the game with new listings. Once involved with bidding and buying, Brad connected us to his vast network of high quality professionals – lawyers, architects, etc. He made the process seamless.

Beyond his stellar credentials, Brad has something that I place a high value on while going through a process as important and stressful as home buying – he has patience, compassion, and empathy for his clients. We didn’t get a few of the apartments we liked along the way because the NYC market is highly competitive - some were heartbreakers. Brad was there for us, supporting and reassuring us that we would find the right apartment…and boy did we!

We could not be happier with Brad, the home-buying experience, and the final result – our beautiful new home! We’re in a great neighborhood, on a great block, and our apartment has already increased in value. We couldn’t ask for more and it’s all thanks to Brad.
— Claire Letourneau
Brad helped my husband and me find our apartment, and we recommend him unequivocally. We've had terrible experiences with brokers in the past, but Brad was the consummate professional. He listened carefully to us, and worked tirelessly to find us an apartment that met all our criteria. He was efficient and respectful of our time, scheduling as many appointments as he could during the windows of time we had available. He took photographs of all the apartments we visited, and he shared them with us so that we could make a fully considered decision before selecting a new place to live. He also understood and appreciated that we would need time to talk privately about the apartments, and he encouraged us to do so. Most importantly, he was honest, and was on our side. He did not try to talk us into an apartment that wasn't right, or was too expensive. He negotiated on our behalf, and gave us advice on how to negotiate when our lease is re-upped in a year. We trusted him, which made the process as painless as possible.
— Megan Gaffney
Brad was a fantastic real estate agent from start to finish. He was always very communicative and willing to work with us on every aspect of the negotiation. I trusted him fully, which is very rare in my experience in the real estate world, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
— Jamie Caplan
Brad helped us in finding and finalizing the purchase of our home in NYC. He is extremely detail oriented and was instrumental in helping us navigate through the extremely complicated and twisted maze of rules/regulations pertaining to the NYC real estate market. His knowledge and experience in this arena is simply superb and he helped us through the entire process (narrowing down our choices to the final signature). While there is no shortage of real estate agents in the city, to find someone with high integrity is a tall order and we were blessed to have him with us in the process. I highly recommend him!
— Adil Rajput
I have worked with many agents while searching for my dream apt in NYC, and I can truly say that Brad is unmatched in the industry on every level. Brad conducts himself with the utmost professionalism through every situation. He was open, honest, informative and kind throughout the entire process. It felt like I was going apt hunting with a caring friend rather than a business partner. He was always providing me with up to date information regarding the real estate market in the city as well as any relevant data on the properties we visited. Brad found me the most amazing apt that fit every single one of my requirements & desires. He is truly a standout!
— Shirin Peykar
I was introduced to Brad by a neighbor in my building who had worked with him a number of times before, and I’m glad I was given the recommendation. Brad was very realistic about what I was hoping to achieve in selling my property, and he took the necessary time to understand my timing and price goals regarding the sale. I’ve found that over the last five to ten years, it seems like anyone can become a real estate agent, and that makes finding a good one especially difficult. Aside from being a great person all around, Brad is one of the few professional real estate agents I’ve met in a long while. He understands that the agent-client relationship is based on mutual understanding, and he works to make that relationship a strong one so that the process of selling a home goes very smoothly. I’ve already recommended Brad to a number of friends who have bought and sold properties with him. They’ve all had success stories similar to mine, so I would gladly recommend him again.
— Jonathan Fisher
Working with Brad is like apartment shopping with an extremely knowledgeable friend. I bought and sold my Upper East Side co-op with him, and both times he was relaxed, informative, and he gave me great advice regarding the transactions. He also kept me up to date during the closing process for both the purchase and sale of the apartment, which I really appreciated. Because of my experiences with Brad, I’ve recommended him to some of my friends, and they’ve had success working with him, as well. He’s truly a great guide to have in today’s market.
— Heidi Kaufman
Brad is a phenomenal broker. I can’t recommend him highly enough. When I was looking to buy property in Manhattan, Brad researched a number of listings before we even started searching, and he previewed some of them, as well, to make sure they were apartments I would be interested in. Because of Brad’s pro-active approach, I was able to find a property very quickly. Once the process of buying the apartment began, Brad was very focused and diligent, and he was always willing to accommodate my busy schedule. He worked hard to keep the purchase moving forward, and the whole process went very smoothly.
— Marc Allen
Brad is an all around great real estate agent, and I’d absolutely recommend him to my friends and family. He’s extremely attentive of his clients’ needs and he’s straightforward in regards to what his clients can realistically expect out of a deal. He thoroughly researches each property before showing it, and whenever a question or concern arises, his responses are punctual and thought out. Aside from being an adept agent, he’s also a very nice person. All of this makes working with him an easy and comfortable experience, and I really appreciated that comfort when purchasing my home.
— Mindy Everett
During a short NYC visit, I had two days to find a place for a job relocation, and Brad found me a spot in just a few hours. No joke - we hustled to six different listings and, not only were they ALL formally setup with appointments, but ALL of them met my initial criteria. Brad was the perfect balance between an exceptional listener and a NY realist. Be ready to answer questions to make you think about things you never thought to consider when honing in on a place!
— Ivan Hernandez
I worked with three different agents before I met Brad, and after our first day looking at properties together, I already felt much more comfortable with him than I had with any of the others. I was a first-time buyer, and Brad really understood my mindset. He was patient and informative, answering all my questions and explaining the process of purchasing real estate in the city. He displayed an incredible amount of knowledge, and I knew from the first day that he was the broker I wanted to work with. Brad really persevered in working with me. After we had looked at quite a few places, I decided I wanted to take a break for a couple months to reevaluate my situation. He stayed in contact the entire time, and when I decided to start looking for a home again, he was right there to help. We eventually found an apartment through one of his industry connections, which were a great resource throughout the closing process, too. I’ve already recommended Brad to others, and my first experience with him was so good that I’m currently working with him again to rent out my apartment.
— Jennifer Yee
My husband and I were referred to Brad by a friend who had recently purchased a three-bedroom apartment with him and was very pleased with his work. For me, working with Brad was one of the best and easiest home-buying experiences I could have imagined. Brad was not only resourceful, but he was always available, completely honest with us about the market and the properties we visited, and had great advice. Even if we had a question at midnight and sent Brad an e-mail, he would usually write back within minutes. I think Brad’s biggest strength is his patience. I had heard horror stories about how agents in the city tend to be extremely pushy and pressure their clients into making premature decisions, but Brad wasn’t anything like that. He was always patient and understanding with us, and that really helped the process. I have already recommended Brad to others, as has my husband, and we’d continue to do so without reservations.

We could not be more pleased with the level of service Brad offers and would highly recommend using him with confidence. He is extremely knowledgeable with NYC Real Estate and very honest throughout the process. During our selling experience he was very helpful in negotiations, presenting all the options for us to make the best decision together. He understands his clients and their needs in this fast paced NYC Real Estate market. Do not look any further, Brad is the broker you want to work with.
— Christina Perrino
Brad recently helped my husband and I find a co-op apartment in Brooklyn. We had a very positive experience working together. He is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and was always willing to explain each step of the process so that we felt informed and comfortable while making decisions. Brad is responsible, prepared and patient, always promptly responding to emails, phone calls and even late night panicked text messages! He is sincerely dedicated to helping his clients find their perfect home. We highly recommend him!
