I myself am a realtor but not in NYC so we listed with Hal and never looked back. He was very helpful in all aspects of the sales and moving process. He never pressured Mom but managed to procure a fair offer which Mom thought over and accepted. If we had any further business to do in SI this broker is the one we would gladly call again."
