My wife found Sam when we were looking for an apartment in Astoria almost two year ago. From the start, he was a consummate professional: Responsive, friendly, diligent, honest, patient...all the qualities you want in someone trying to help you find a great place to live. Sam lives in Astoria and works in Manhattan and Astoria. His knowledge of the market is very impressive. We could tell from the start that he had a lot of experience in his trade and loves what he does. To this day, I could pick up the phone and know Sam would greet me warmly and help me to the best of his ability. I have referred people to him and he has given them the golden treatment that he gave us. Sam has become a family friend. If you are looking for assistance in finding a new place, give him a call.

A detailed review:
I met Sam Ibrahim when attending open house for one of his sales listings. It had been a long day: I had been to 10 open houses before this one. By the time I got to Sam's open house, I was disappointed by the listings I had seen, and even more disappointed by the agents, as most of the sales agents at the open houses seemed bored, disinterested and were not helpful in showing the property or answering questions. What a relief it was to walk into the open house and meet Sam! He smiled when he opened the door. He enthusiastically showed me the property. He was honest about the apartment's both good and bad features. After that meeting, I told Sam I wasn't interested in the property, but I asked him to be my buyer's broker.
As a first-time buyer, especially in New York, I had many questions through the buying process. Sam was patient and helpful with providing me all the information I needed. A seasoned pro, Sam knew the ins and outs of the market. He was familiar with and friendly with many of the sales agents that we met as we looked at properties, which was also helpful. As we looked at properties, Sam was at each appointment with me. He could quickly spot the positive elements of a listing, and the negative ones. His familiarity with the rental market was helpful in selecting a property that would be easy to rent out in the future. Up until the closing, which Sam came to, Sam was always very responsive, detailed and helpful with answering questions and providing information.
