My favorite yoga teacher, also a dear friend of mine gave me Domingo Perez’s contact info as I was planning on selling my apartment in Park Slope. Since our first correspondence via email, I could tell that Domingo was an outstanding professional. I immediately knew that I was in good hands.
The previous year, I had tried to sell my place, in vain. I met with several realtors, even famous ones; I ended up hiring whoever seemed the nicest and whose credentials were solid. For 6 months, starting in April we had open houses after open houses, I was asked to keep lowering the price, no one would even show up to these weekly events.
With Domingo, I understood that the biggest part of the job comes before the sale. Nevermind that it’s February in New York City; when everyone said not to sell in the dead of winter, Domingo saw it as an opportunity, a way to attract truly committed buyers. Other realtors just bring fresh flowers for the first open house pretending they are doing you a huge favor and… hope for the best. I scrolled through a lot of ‘fingers crossed’ emojis… The experience was at best frustrating and a massive waste of my precious time.
Domingo, however, has it under control! His roster of clients is very impressive. He is very proactive in engaging with potential customers. He doesn’t wait for them to show up, he goes and gets ’em! He even introduced himself to my neighborhood, distributing fliers in preparation for the sale. Over 700 potential clients had viewed my apartment before the opening. The fliers featured a stunning virtual staging; the rendering looked very realistic, made the apartment very appealing, respected the overall look and feel of the place and was printed next to the actual pictures allowing people to visualize options for decor. No need to pay a fortune for a physical staging; No distorted pictures that make the apartment look unrealistic and ridiculous.
Domingo is very kind and very attentive to details. His artistic flair is spot on, his energy very positive and light. His strategies flawless.
Selling an apartment can be surprisingly stressful; we live in it, we put a lot of love into it to make it look nice; lots of hard work, sweat, fear, joy and tears. Strangers come to visit, they open your closets, bathroom cabinets, even your fridge! Domingo Perez will assist you through this odd process. With him, you can expect this important transition to be as smooth as can be. It took one open house (yes, one) for him to sort the sale out. I feel genuinely happy for him to get a well-deserved commission! Look no further, he is the man!
And wait! He is from Spain!!!! Hence, the permanent smile on his face.
Happy selling! You will not be disappointed.
I cannot say enough good things about Domingo. I thought my apartment would never sell. I kept having to reduce the price. It was an amazing apartment in an amazing location in a land lease building with a high maintenance which negated all the positives. Domingo took this on as seemingly “personal challenge”. He didn’t just show the apartment, he marketed it. Showed the potential with artist renderings and architects plans. Where I had one or two showings a year over 2 years, with Domingo I had 2 firm offers and when the board rejected them (heartbreaking for me) Domingo persevered and found a buyer at tens of thousands over the former asking price. He made the impossible happen for me. I recommend him to the sky and beyond.
My apartment, 11H, was on the market for over a year. I went through 2 brokers before Domingo. Not. One. Bite. Why? Is it a bad apartment? No! It’s because it was old looking, needed major refreshing and I wasn’t prepared to put any more money into it.
That’s where Domingo’s genius comes in. He’s not an apartment “shower”. He is a marketer. He knows who the right buyers are and how to package the property. He had an architect do renderings of the potential so when people came to see, they saw what it COULD look like. He had open houses, marketed it online, and never wasted a moment of my time.
The result? The apartment that I thought I’d never sell had 2 offers and I got $10,000 more than the asking price.
There are not many brokers out there like Domingo. In fact, I truly believe he’s one of a kind.
After over 23 years. It was time for my business to relocate and a very good friend suggested that I call Domingo for assistance navigating the current rental market.
Domingo listened attentively to what we require from a space and was able to translate that information into action so efficiently that the third space that we visited is the one that we ended up renting.
Although we liked the space when we first saw it we wanted to see more spaces and through the whole process Domingo was tirelessly attentive.
When engaging with the New York real estate market, it is very beneficial to have an enthusiastic, informative and trustworthy ally to gently but confidently assist you in managing what could be an overwhelming endeavor.
Domingo is such an ally and more.
Domingo is the best residential RE broker I have ever worked with! Extremely professional and organized…he adds values to your deals! Thanks so much for your help!
A real estate broker we trusted to have our best interests at heart? A real estate broker with whom we became friends? We were always very skeptical that either of these would ever happen. With Domingo Perez, we found both. He is a hard-working man of integrity and care…always responsive, upbeat and eager to help. He took the time to understand our hopes and goals and stayed with us until our transactions were complete. An absolute pleasure to work with.
