  • The experiences with Russell (several under residential and commercial) have always been great. I worked with several brokers around the country but no one delivered like him. I highly recommend Russell.

  • Russell Putterman is one of the most responsive, knowledgeable, practical, and effective realtors I have ever dealt with in 30 years of law practice in Manhattan. He has provided state-of-the-art advice for overseas investor clients of mine who are of a very experienced, inquisitive, and exigent nature, and Russ's answers and diligence are always impressive. He makes the work of the professionals (such as me) around him easier and he has genuine leadership qualities. Manhattan is a tough environment, with high stakes. Russ is a top-level pro in one of the most challenging -- yet promising -- markets in the world.

  • Russell and his team helped us through a disastrous situation after Hurricane Sandy tore through the home we had just gone to contract on. We were not sure if moving forward with the purchase was the best decision for us. Russell investigated the terms of our contract, provided us with specialists for mold damage and structural damage and spent endless hours on the phone with us, the sellers broker and our attorney. In the end our best decision was to keep looking and look we did. We were in contract on our dream home less than a month after we decided to move on and couldn't be happier. Thank you to Russell and his team!

  • Russell was fantastic. I had identified a Co-Op apartment I wanted to purchase on my own. Russell and I went to graduate school together. As anyone who knows the process of purchasing an apartment in a Co-Op building would agree, it is a rather onerous process. Russell was able to keep me calm the entire time. I don't know how I would have gotten through creating the Co-Op Board Package and eventual interview without his assistance. There is a good chance I would have given up several times along the way had his expertise not kept us on track. I highly recommend utilizing Russell's skills.

  • Russell and his team are very knowledgeable, responsive and hard working. They sold my apartment within a week and worked with me while I was half way around the world to get the paperwork together. I couldn't have asked for more.


    His team also helped my husband and I find our new apartment. We went in many directions in which they accommodated, provided advice and helped us find the right apartment for us.

  • Russell took the challenge to find a Condo in NYC for me, that travels to the city from time-to-time and would like to stay in my own apartment (instead of a regular hotel accommodation). Also, I would like to have the apartment for rent while I am not in town. He was very proactive in finding Trump International and excellent in negotiating a great deal with seller. Definitely a great asset for anyone looking to make a good deal in NYC.

He responded quickly my calls and emails and updated me often on what was available and what was happening. So I could get the space immediately! I was so lucky to meet him and work with him. Will also love to work with him in the future as well!

  • It was a great pleasure to work with Russell Putterman when purchasing my first apt in NYC. He proved to be prepared and on top of things. I felt protected and secure during the entire process. I am not American and I don't have any family here, but I felt supported when I was investing my own money in purchasing real estate.


    He has excellent negotiation skills and was able to get me the apt at the purchasing price I wished! Russ has been always responsive and willing to help not only during the purchasing process but also afterwards, whenever I had real estate related questions for him.


    I totally trust him and would recommend him as a broker!

  • Our first experience with Matt included the loss of a home we had signed a contract on due to Hurricane Sandy. He stuck by us investigating whether or not we should move forward with the purchase. He provided us with people to investigate mold damage and structural damage. In the end the house was too severely damaged for us to move forward, but within weeks we were in contract on the home of our dreams. We are here now and couldn't be happier. We have Matt and his team to thank for that.

  • Matt sold my house in one day. Granted the area is very desirable but, thanks to Matt's advice, I priced it well. I even got more than my asking price. Once I was in contract Matt made sure he was available anytime something house related came up. Whether it was an inspection, a contractor or the buyers just wanting to come by with different family members he made sure he was there to let them in and stayed with them so that he was certain the house was locked up properly. He is very easy to work with and never gave me a hard time about anything. I would strongly recommend him as a realtor. As a matter of fact I did recommend him to one of my friends who is selling her house and she is using him. She is very pleased with him as well.

  • Matt has represented me in both residential and business capacities in both Long Island and New York City. Having worked with other broker in the past, Matt's work ethnic was incomparable.


    In my dealing with Matt he was willing to work behind the scenes to assess my needs, visit properties beforehand, and show me listings in the right areas and at the right price points. There were also times where my expectations weren't reasonable. Matt took the time to show me properties and educate me before we began our real search.


    Many brokers tell you to search MLSI, give them the listing numbers you like, then arrange appointments for you (which some don't even show up for). Matt does more; he digs deeper, checks out properties on his own, and tries to find out what going on behind the scenes (why the property is being sold).


    Matt is also a very tough negotiator. If it's possible to get the price you need....he will make it happen.


    If your looking for a broker that will smile as you do all the work you can choose anyone. If you want someone who will dig deeper and be a bulldog on your behalf when it's time to negotiate then call Matt.


    I have referred him in the past to both family and friends.

  • Awesome experience. We would 100% use Matthew again... he knows the very neighborhoods well (schools, parks, etc.) and also was great when our sale price negotiations heated up! He had our best interests in mind from the start and was highly professional. Fantastic broker from start to finish.

  • My dealings with Matt were nothing but a 5 star experience. He was available to answer any questions my wife or I had at any time day or night. (mostly my wife's). He went above and beyond when dealing with even the most minute details regarding my purchase. I have and will continue to recommend Matt to my friends and families.

  • Rich was incredibly helpful in the rental process. Finding a place in NYC can be overwhelming, but he simplified it. He found a great unit that had just opened up and we were able to get in there before the rush. Great experience, highly recommend.

  • We had a wonderful experience working with Jason Pick of Keller Williams Reality. As anyone who has ever bought or sold a home knows, it can be quite a stressful time! Jason made the transition quick and easy! He found us a buyer, before our home was even in the market, and took us to multiple homes to both rent and purchase. He not only found us a beautiful home to purchase but also found us a rental house in the meantime. He is knowledgeable, patient, enthusiastic and prepared from start to finish. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home to buy, sell or rent!
