In a city of brokers, Darren stands apart. He is on a different level, and his results show that. Deals these days are much more challenging, require a whole different set of skills than in prior markets, and Darren brings those skills in abundance to every transaction he works on. He is intense in his craft -- he doesn’t list properties, he markets them, brands them, and creates a buzz about them that gets attention – real attention. And that is why his properties generate multiple bids when other similarly situated units languish. And that keen valuation instinct works amazingly for buyers as well, who need to be guided through the vast inventory ...— Jerry
RESULTS, RESULTS, RESULTS...Darren will do exactly what he says he will do, and he will work 24 hrs a day to get it done and exceed your expectations. Darren my home is quicker and higher than the listing price. I am constantly recommending his services; he is the best in NYC. Hire him and let him do his magic.— Garret
I have known Darren for over twenty years. He is passionate, charismatic, has an over-the-top personality, and is an extremely loyal person. There are few people in this world that leave an everlasting impression on your life and that is the best way to describe Darren. As a young man anything Darren did in his early life he did extraordinarily and it proves his success as an adult. You don’t learn to be a person like Darren- You got it or you don’t… and he has got it!— Lesley
It did not take long for me to realize that Darren would be the best agent to sell my co-op. He quickly developed a strategy and provided immediate confidence that he knew how to get the job done. We were extremely satisfied with the results and would enlist him again in the of a property. I trusted him with our largest asset, and he delivered!— Elise
I've bought and homes in San Francisco, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York City. Darren is the only person I'd trust to sell my home. His follow-through is outstanding, but what makes him superior to anyone I've dealt with is his balance between doing the transaction, including getting the buyer to commit while keeping the big picture, and having great relationships on both sides of the table. His work ethic is extraordinary.— Buddy

Having made multiple investments in Manhattan residential real estate I have found Darren Sukenik to be in a class of his own. His experience in lower Manhattan is unparalleled. I would suggest that anyone considering the purchase of a property consult with Darren prior to making a move!— William
Darren is a winner both personally and professionally. The expansion of his business and ability to please the buyer and the seller each time is rare to find in Manhattan. He is hard-working, and diligent and has the ability to get unparalleled access to properties BEFORE the public can get there. He continues to expand into more areas of real estate and is most definitely a person people should meet with before considering any moves (buy, sell, etc) in that arena.— Jake

As for the of the existing apartment, multiple offers after the first couple of days are on the market. What more is there to say?— Brian & Bret
It was a pleasure to work with Ben and his team on a new home purchase in Tribeca. Ben was of course extremely knowledgeable about the downtown real estate market, as well as extremely professional and responsive; however, I most appreciated Ben's thoughtfulness in making sure that we found the right property for me and making the process as easy as possible. I felt like Ben was as excited as I was when we narrowed in on the right unit for me and my daughter, then he made sure that I was able to secure it at a great value. Finally, he guided me through each step to contract/closing with great recommendations for the RE attorney and progress updates...— Colleen
Ben doesn't think about the transaction, but rather the client. These are two very, very different things and they make a world of difference in NYC real estate. He's knowledgeable, yes. He's detail-oriented, yes. He's diligent, yes. But the most important facet of this, which you can't really teach, is that he cares about his clients. He wants them to love the place they're buying. He wants them to meet their goals as Sellers. He gets that this is about dreams and hopes and aspirations and lifestyle, just as much as it is about transactions. He's an incredibly gifted broker in a mass of brokers and he's a wonderful person as well.— Daniel
Ben Glazer was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him wholeheartedly to my friends. He is very knowledgeable and is very professional in his demeanor.

I appreciated his straightforward approach and am glad that I followed his excellent advice when it came time to purchase. We love the apartment! Ben was also a great help with the Board package and never hesitated to answer a call or email. I look forward to working with him again in the future.— David
Ben was amazing from start to finish. Thoughtful, respectful, and experienced, Ben made a complicated process feel simple and effortless. He had a helpful and prompt answer to every question. I felt like he had my best interests at heart at every step of the process. Ben will be my first call the next time I buy, sell, or in NYC.— Lily
Purchasing our first apartment was an educational experience that was very successful and pleasant thanks to Benjamin Glazer. Ben was both professional and patient as he guided me through the process of finding a wonderful apartment for us. Upon meeting him, it was instantly clear that Ben knew his business well; he was very familiar with many buildings and quickly steered me away from any that had less than solid financials. He was very honest in his approach; he was quick to point out the pros and cons of the properties we viewed, and he made excellent recommendations along the way. Ben has good judgment and cares about his clients and their wishe...— Carol

Ben Glazer is a pro's pro real estate broker. I've been practicing residential real estate law for 15 years now and have witnessed first-hand the importance of a top-notch broker like Ben. He not only cares profoundly about his clients, but he's also hyper-organized, relentless in the best of ways, and does not get flustered by the fast and brutal world that is New York real estate. Ben gets things done in a proactive way, and that is much appreciated by the attorneys. I like and admire Ben and am thrilled when I have the good fortune of working with him.— Michael M.

Ben is a pleasure to work with, and he did a terrific job selling our coop earlier this Spring. He ran a very tight/stream-lined process that included only one house (90 minutes on a Sunday afternoon) and multiple offers within three days of that house. Ben's knowledge of the market was instrumental in pegging an initial asking price that was spot on, and his negotiation skills allowed us to achieve a price that was ultimately above our expectations. I recommend him without hesitation.— Jeffrey P.
I've been fortunate to work with Benjamin on a number of real estate transactions over the past few years.

It has been an immense pleasure working with David! He was able to find the apartment I was looking for in just 2 days and he was really flexible in meeting the needs. He did all the paperwork and his help has been fundamental for the moving into the new apartment. He is really professional agent and I'm looking forward to work with him, again.— Buyer
Very helpful and clear when I came to signing the contract. The process was easy and he was very professional! He contacted us right away and started helping as soon as we started talking— Buyer
David had helped us a few years back with one of the apartments that we had rented in Astoria. He was really great to work with. We had a couple of issues with the wrong name being printed on the check to the management company. Even though Davids office was in Astoria, he offered to come into Manhattan and pick up a new check from me as it was in the middle of the work day. I found that to be very accommodating and professional. I have since recommended David to several people that are looking for a Broker to work with in Astoria. He isn't pushy and is very realistic. Highly recommend David— Buyer | Seller
Working with David was an absolute pleasure. He is one of the few realtors who are not “pushy”, very respectful and polite. He responded to all inquiries promptly. The transaction was quick, clear with the least amount of time spent. Highly recommend!— Buyer
David was incredibly helpful, making the process quick and stress-free for us. He was also very accommodating when it came time to view the apartment since all of us run on different work schedules. I would recommend David to anyone.— Buyer
Darren is extremely bright, personable, and reliable, and I have found him to be very competent in getting the job done. I highly recommend him and would use him continuously as my real estate agent.— Barry
