This was the smartest decision I made. I was connected to Peter through a friend of the family, and just after a few phone calls, email exchanges, and rental spec sheets, Peter had a good sense of what interests me. During these times of Covid, I knew a trip to visit properties was out of the question, so my faith was in Peter, videos, and lots of pictures and questions to land me my new home. Peter was extremely responsive, and although I was 3000 miles away, always felt he was available to talk or text at any time. Since Brooklyn was uncharted territory for me, Peter also helped guide me through the pros and cons of various neighborhoods, buildings, and units, based upon his quick, but valid, assessment of me, my needs, and interests. I am pleased to say my place is exactly what I dreamed it would be and Peter helped through the process at every step.- Jim Jacobs ArchitectWorking with Peter and Michael was a great experience and I would recommend them to my friends. They scrutinized all paperwork, helped move everything along and strategize for the co-op board package and interview, adding an astute dose of advice and good humor to the process. They made themselves available to talk at any time and were always one step ahead of everyone else.-James Williams, First-time Co-op OwnerMr. Peter Darnell came highly recommended by a long-time and good friend so while having to do everything remotely by phone, computer, he made everything go so smoothly which was such a comfort to me during this difficult time and being unable to travel to BK/NYC, during the selling process of my co-op. He was always available and kept me abreast of everything that was going on to get the property sold. Thanking him for being the consummate professional and grateful for the smooth transition, Appreciate you!-Sincerely, Gerri Hughes, Seller
