With over ten years of real estate experience in a wide array of functions, Ishmael’s specialty is creating, maintaining, and improving landlord relationships in all phases. Whether producing rental comparable reports, art-directing apartment photography, liaising between agents and landlords, or utilizing his keen eye for detail and presentation, “Ish” as he’s known around the office, is always on call and ready to help with whatever’s needed at our company. Our landlords are very thankful for Ish’s professional demeanor and “can-do” attitude. His motto when it comes to our landlords can be summed up with his response to this one pivotal question: “How can I make your life easier?” Ish’s answer? “In whatever capacity I can, and at any time…”
Ish graduated from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York, where he proceeded to work in non-profits, title insurance, and high-end bicycle shops before finding his passion in residential real estate and making it his career. His diverse areas of employment carefully honed his skills at empathy, working well with differing personalities, financial expertise, and sales - leading him to helping REAL New York clients, landlords, and agents navigate the ever changing NYC real estate landscape to maximum effectiveness for all parties. His goal is to assist in discovering hidden value in every opportunity.
As a native New Yorker with extensive knowledge of the “ins and outs” of New York City, feel free to pick Ish’s brain for the latest restaurant hit (or even better: ask what used to be in that space beforehand). You are guaranteed to get a good story, one way or another. In his spare time, you can likely find Ish hiking or mountain biking in upstate New York, at a Speakeasy no one’s heard of, or off somewhere on another of his international travel adventures, perusing one of his other loves: photography.
