“Ari is a consummate professional. After having met many brokers, we knew right away when we met Ari that this was the person that we wanted to guide us through our purchase and represent us at the negotiating table. He exudes confidence and for good reason: Ari is young, bright, and extremely knowledgeable. He armed us with the information we needed to make an educated decision, afforded us room to breathe, and was available to us at every point of the way. Best of all, he negotiated a 19% price reduction on our first-choice home. We feel exceedingly confident in recommending Ari to anyone.” – EG. & S.G., buyers
"Ari is not your typical real estate broker with whom you feel you have to second guess everything they say. He's smart, practical, and very knowledgeable on the New York market and Williamsburg in particular, where he not only works, but also resides. He is extremely responsive and no question is too crazy. Ari was a great guide to the long and complex journey to a successful closing, and helped us generate multiple bidders on our sale, as well as negotiate down our purchase price with ease." – J.S. & C.H., buyers and sellers
"There's nothing more important than partnering with a first-in-class real estate professional and organization to sell an apartment in this challenging environment. From the moment I met Ari, I knew he was going to be the perfect person to help me market my apartment to success. Ari has a keen understanding of the Williamsburg market and brought thoughtful insight to pricing and marketing strategies that paid off resulting in not just one, but several offers in less than one month's time. I highly recommend Ari to bring added value to any real estate listing in the New York City area.” - D.S., seller
“My husband and I sold our apartment with Ari during a very challenging time. Besides the housing market being in a tough spot, we were also expecting our first child. Ari was a dream to work with during this time. I cannot imagine working with anyone else. He made the process effortless! We trusted Ari's professional advice, which made us feel very comfortable in our decisions, and his attention to detail, follow up, and work ethic were all wonderful. He was never pushy, and in fact he actually was very calming and informative. It would be a pleasure to recommend him to others and to work with him again!” – M.L. & N.L., sellers
“I was relieved to have a colleague refer me to Ari after two deals fell through. Ari brought a strong point of view on the market due to his deep knowledge of the dynamics and advised us on how to aggressively pursue a property that met all of our requirements. When Ari set our expectations on what the market was demanding and what the deal would require, we were able to close with ease. Strong client skills are rare to find and Ari is very good at setting expectations and guiding you through the rough spots. We are so grateful we found someone as grounded, strategic and intelligent as Ari is." – S.M. & G.K., buyers
“Ari and Warner have represented me twice in buying a home and once in selling it. I could not recommend them too highly. On the selling side, they did an outstanding work. They priced the apartment right, produced stellar marketing material, negotiated skillfully with buyers and dealt patiently with the demands of a difficult co-op board. On the buying side, they negotiated a very fast and profitable deal on both occasions. At all times, they were sensitive to the needs of my family, extremely competent, professional, fun and never pushy. They are by far and away the best agents I have ever dealt with and I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else in New York City.” - I.R., seller and buyer

Warner was an invaluable asset in navigating both the emotional and financial waters that go into home ownership. Throughout the process he was truly there every step of the way to make sure that I was knowledgeable and comfortable with every decision being made. What started off as a working relationship has now turned into a life long friendship.” – S.R., buyer and seller

Everything played out exactly how he predicted, and he was able to secure a deal in a timely fashion. Overall, Warner guided us through each part of the process with sound advice and kept us calm. If you are looking for someone to be a real advocate for you, and make the whole process as headache-free as possible, this is your guy!” –J.S., seller
“Deciding to sell my first apartment was a difficult and stressful situation. Warner was extremely helpful and supportive. He was very receptive to my concerns and was always flexible and considerate of my schedule. Most of all, Warner is so honest and hardworking. He kept me very informed with constant updates and offered invaluable advice. He listened to my needs, and got me a great deal for my apartment in a short period of time. I highly recommend him and will use him again when the time comes.” – D.G. seller
“Ari and Warner act as a true team with the highest level of professionalism and expertise. They are aware and ahead of the market and honest and supportive through the process. On the sale, they were able to leverage their resources to get the maximum amount of visibility for our listing. Even in a challenging environment, we had a signed contract in less than a week at a price that we were happy with. On the purchase, they gave us objective guidance and were sensitive to our timing and needs. We relied on their experience and real estate knowledge to find our new home and simultaneously close two deals in a short timeframe. The process was easy thanks to their efforts and we couldn't be happier with the results.” – D.C & S.C., buyers and sellers
“My wife and I had the pleasure of being represented by the Harkov Lewis Team over the course of 5 years. Through countless open houses, several bids, two false starts and finally one closing, Warner and Ari provided the guidance and market knowledge needed to navigate complex markets during the highest highs and the lowest lows. The team’s professionalism and integrity are bar none, and we would recommend them without reservations to real estate rookies and veterans alike.” – R.C. & A.C., buyers
