Ivan was helpful in quickly finding me an awesome apartment. He is very knowledgeable of the Astoria/LIC area, and was very easy to communicate with whenever I had any questions. He helped make the apartment hunting experience stress free and easy. Thanks Ivan!

Ivan helped us rent out our condo in Long Island City/Astoria and he was a pleasure to work with! He was very responsive from day one and very diligent throughout the process, from putting together comparables and setting up the listing/marketing efforts to showing the condo and getting the contract signed. He is very easy to work with and has a lot of industry expertise, making the process very stress-free and a breeze for us. He takes care of it all! Highly recommend!

I came from out of town and was unsure what to expect while searching for an apartment. Ivan helped to cure any of my worries. He walked me through everything I needed to know and was extremely transparent. Additionally, he was very easy to communicate with and would always follow up or be available to answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend Ivan to anyone searching for an apartment in Long Island City.

Ivan was very helpful in helping me find an apartment and actually kept my best interest in mind. He stayed persistent and kept my budget and what I was looking for in mind at all times and was the one to message me about the place that I chose to move to. He was very knowledgable and answered all of my questions thoroughly throughout the process


May 2019 by Sunaina S. , Long Island City
Ivan is extremely knowledgeable and a highly competent agent. He was responsive to all my questions and requests. Moreover he has deep knowledge of LIC and helped fast track my lease application. He always arrived on time for appointments and checked in with me during the entire process. I highly recommend him.

It was a pleasure to work with Ivan. We listed my apartment (a lease break) on a Thursday and he had it off the market by Monday. During the weekend he showed the apartment 11 times and worked within my schedule to ensure I was home and comfortable with the experience. I highly recommend him!

April 2019 by Carolyn L. , Long Island City
Ivan and his team are the BEST. Professional, warm, responsive...they went far and beyond to help me with my move and I was so impressed by their decency and customer service. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for an apartment in LIC. They know their business and they are NICE. Moving is a stressful experience. Why not work with someone kind as well?

March 2019 by Liz W. , Long Island City
Ivan was very prompt and professional. He listened to what I wanted and made sure to show me the best options available. I really appreciated that he was very honest about the benefits and drawbacks of each place he showed me, including information about the neighborhoods where they were located. I will definitely work with him again.

I was fortunate enough to come across Ivan Palov on my hunt for an apartment. He responded to my query immediately and was in touch with me to better understand my preferences and priorities. He knew the market well and was able to find several suitable choices that corresponded with what I was after. The next day I met him for an appointment and was able to secure an apartment that truly did fit my needs. I found Ivan's knowledge of the property market useful, particularly because he took the initiative and time to understand the needs from a client perspective. Because he did this, he was able to provide me with valuable advice and prioritize the showings of a number of properties whilst providing his honest & professional opinion about each one of them.

If you're looking for a broker to find an apartment in Long Island City, don't look anywhere else but Ivan. After contacting many brokers and not hearing back, or hearing back initially and then dropping off all communication, we found Ivan through a listing on an apartment site. He was prompt emailing us, and even fit us in a day later (on a Sunday!) and had countless apartments to show us. He respected our price limit, but also showed us things above and below it so we could understand the market. In the end, he ended up finding us an amazing steal of an apartment that we never could have found on our own (with amenities and features that we never even dreamed of!) He was prompt, professional, courteous, down to earth and transparent all along the way - caring about his clients more than the money. After we submitted our application, he checked in on us multiple times to see how the process was going, even reaching out to the leasing agent to see how it was on that end. From start to finish, we had signed an apartment in less than a week after beginning to look. We had a better experience with Ivan than we did with our broker when we first moved to Manhattan (who we sought out AND paid a 15% fee for). Ivan is head and shoulders above the rest and I can't speak highly enough of his drive and commitment.

I am reviewing Ivan Palov with Luxury Apartments LIC because my experience with him in finding my current apartment has been nothing short of phenomenal.

This is one of the reasons I decided to create an Yelp account. A good broker in NY is hard to find, this one deserves all the praise.

I was initially looking for a place in Manhattan but my budget limited me to seeing bad to ordinary apartments at best. I decided to give Queens a shot and ,of course, started with an online search of Long island City and Astoria because these neighborhoods were the closest to Manhattan where I work. I used multiple different apartment platforms and Ivan's name was a recurring one on all of them. In all honesty, there were other similar ads posted by other agents, so I guess they could have shown me similar places but I decided to bet on Ivan based on the fact that he seemed to know LIC well and also based on his reviews. I clicked on a couple of his ads and (I don't know how it is possible) I received a response to my inquiry within no more than 5 seconds.

We engaged in a conversation and he offered to call me to better understand my needs. We scheduled an appointment to see a few places on the weekend. He took me to 3-4 buildings which he described as "the best deals on the market right now" because of the incentives they were offering in comparison to other buildings which were not. I liked everything he showed me. Worse, I liked every building almost equally. It was extremely difficult for me to decide on one single apartment because I did not know much about the neighborhood and the pros and cons of each building. I then went on asking a ton of questions to better evaluate and Ivan answered all of them quickly and with patience. His confidence and knowledge were fundamental, I trusted him and his professional opinion and this eliminated so much anxiety. For me, this broker was a huge help. Pleasant, easy going, knowledgeable, serious when needed and when numbers are involved, honest, straightforward, fast and effective in his communication. "As good as it gets"!

Published 03/08/2019 - By Local Realtor Forms Boutique Real Estate Firm with

Local Realtor Forms Boutique Real Estate Firm with Focus on Long Island City

 

March 8, 2019 , By Staff Report

Long Island City-based realtor Ivan Palov has recently left a citywide brokerage firm to form his own real estate company, named after the neighborhood that he calls home.

The new firm, Luxury Apartments LIC, was formed in mid-January, and focuses on residential sales, rentals, and property management within Long Island City.

Palov says that he has been a passionate fan of the neighborhood ever since he moved to the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City in 2010 and began selling real estate.

His passion continues to grow as the neighborhood flourishes with new restaurants, coffee shops and breweries. He said one of Long Island City’s big draws is its waterfront parks, which expanded last year with the opening of Phase 2 of Hunters Point South Park.

“I knew one day that people would see that there’s more to Long Island City than the close commute to Manhattan,” Palov said. “So, I formed a real estate company that specializes in the neighborhood that I know best.”

Palov, the company’s principal broker and lead property manager, is joined at his new company by real estate agents Pavla Petrova and Vlad Vladimirov.

He said that through his team’s collective experience, they have established relationships with a wide range of property owners in Long Island City, from those looking to sell private houses, to the owners of high-rise rental and condominium units.

He credits these existing relationships with having helped his team negotiate favorable prices for hundreds of past clients, the majority of whom were in the market for rentals.

Pavla Petrova, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson (Luxury Apartments LIC)

“We have helped 1,100 different customers find their dream homes in the area, which is one of the many reasons why we proudly consider ourselves experts in Long Island City real estate,” he stated.

Palov said that his team also prides itself on being able to help customers find the most suitable properties, without them having to review all the available inventory.

“There is a lot of inventory, but we make it a priority to know each and every unit’s features, limitations, and offered amenities to be sure that we show a place that fits any of our client’s needs,” he said.

He noted that his ability to professionally and efficiently handle each step of a real estate transaction has helped him receive more than 50 glowing reviews on Yelp, and many positive remarks from former clients on Zillow.

Ivan Palov is a graduate of Adelphi University with a degree in International Business. He received his Master of Business Administration degree from Metropolitan College of New York, and holds a New York University diploma in Residential Property Management.
