I''ve had a very positive experience with Ivan and Pavla. Their approach is more personalized than that of other broker''s I''ve worked with before, and I felt that I was treated as a human being. Pavla was eager to share useful info about the neighborhoods we were visiting - like the location of shops, parks etc, the communication was very good - they quickly responded to my text messages and questions, and Ivan also was very pro-active in negotiating certain lease conditions with the building to accommodate my needs. Although a lot of the buildings they show you can see by yourself, without an external broker, it takes time to find such buildings online, to search for units within your price range and then to schedule individual appointments. I felt that this company''s service has an added value as they presented me with a range of options matching my requirements in different buildings and we were able to see a few of them in one day.

I was interested in viewing apartments in Long Island City, and Pavla was a wonderful help in explaining my options and helping me hone in on the apartment I ended up signing. She was prompt in replying and professional through the entire process. I highly recommend her and her team.

Simply the best brokers in LIC. I could not have had a better experience with Ivan and Pavla! Everything from initial inquiry to lease signing, has been very seamless, easy and stress free! We were looking to move in to LIC within 2 weeks and I am so grateful I contacted Luxury Apartments LIC. Both Pavla and Ivan who we worked with were very courteous, professional and attentive. They were patiently listening to what we were looking for and were able to set up apartment viewing ASAP. Pavla was super helpful and communicative during the application and approval process, answering any questions I had at a moments notice. I would highly recommend Luxury Apartments LIC to anyone who needs a company they could trust and rely on! The best experience ever!

Ivan and his team were phenomenal! They are very responsive and knowledgeable about the LIC area. I had ONE day to look at places and find a place by the end of the week. Not only did they listen to my needs and give me options, they helped me find my place, negotiated pricing, and I signed my lease within FIVE days of applying. Everything was seamless! Go with Ivan, Vlad, and Pavla! You won't be disappointed!

I worked with Pavla last year and she helped my roommate and I find a great apartment for a great price. She was to able set up the appointment quick and communicated with us well. We saw 4-5 apartments in the vicinity, all of them more or less around our price range and most of them were good fits, so we felt comfortable that even if we missed out on one given apartment, there will be others to choose from. I would recommend Pavla to all my contacts, as she listened to our criteria and found us pretty much what we were after. Thank you.

Pavla was great to work with. Very responsive and knowledgable of the current market. I would not hesitate to work with her again.

Pavla is a great and very responsive agent. Even-though she was on vacation when I contacted her via Naked Apartments, she was always responsive; the listings she has are real, and the prices are accurate. (No shortcuts, no hidden fees) Since she was not available to show me properties, she connected me with another great agent who showed up on time, showed me more than 5 apartments, and finally helped me negotiate a great deal at the building I wanted. Great agents overall. Highly recommended.

If you are looking to take the stress out of the apartment hunting process, you NEED to get in touch with Pavla Petrova. From the start of my initial search, multiple buildings and unit choices (that stayed within my allotted budget) and then through the lease signing... I could have not asked for a better broker. Pavla was responsive and very proactive when it came to my search in LIC. She set me up with multiple viewings that were all well planned and timed. I was able to see the majority of buildings that fit within my budget and in the area I wanted to live. She understood that my weekend time is limited and made sure that we did waste time looking at buildings that were out of my price range or area that I had specified. After it was all said and done, Pavla followed up with me throughout the final process and then a final follow up to congratulate me on my new apartment! Do yourself a favor and contact her...TODAY!! Make the search for your next place something you look forward to, not something you put off!

Pavla was able to find me the dream apartment as someone who is new to NYC and relocating for work on short notice. She was able to get me a unit with all of the amenities I was looking for in very quick fashion. She was very honest with each of the buildings and units she showed me and was straightforward when it came to applying and getting approved within 24 hours so I could go home with peace of mind knowing I had a great place to call home. I would without hesitation recommend her to any of my family and close personal friends and will use her in the future for any of my NYC real estate needs.

Pavla was very helpful and was always fast to respond to any question I had. She helped me navigate through different apartment viewings and made the whole process very easy. I recommend her.

Pavla was prompt and professional in responding to my inquiries. Although we did not work with Pavla, she was able to arrange another agent from her company to show us apartments, one of which we decided to rent. We would gladly work with her or Luxury Apartments LIC again.

Pavla was an incredible helping in my apartment search in LIC. She helped set up multiple appointments in the area that met my need and budget. Very knowledgeable and trustworthy and helped to get me into a great apartment in LIC. I would recommend anyone to use her as an agent.

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.

“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.
