Recognized as "The Dean of Townhouse Brokers" by Town & Country Magazine, Mr. Garfield's #1 ranked boutique firm (Real Deal Magazine, 2009, 2010, 2011), Leslie J. Garfield & Co., Inc., has led the market in single-family, multi-family, institutional, mixed use, and commercial building sales since 1972.
When Leslie J. Garfield opened the firm he did it with one goal in mind: to be the best in his field by attaining for owners the highest possible price in the shortest possible time. Specifically, the firm strives to be the most knowledgeable, to outwork the competition, to negotiate aggressively and ethically for its clients, and to do so without the distraction of being all things to all people.
Our primary focus is townhouses. We provide the highest level of service in the industry by offering a team of senior brokers who understand their neighborhoods and share prospective buyers across the firm, by aggressively advertising in leading offline and online publications, by working cooperatively with other leading brokerage houses, by liaisoning with attorneys, by providing referrals for architects, lawyers, engineers, and contractors, and by direct marketing to our extensive, international network of high net worth individuals and proven real estate purchasers. Unlike other brokerages who hire junior staffers to handle showings, all interaction with owners, customers and other brokers is handled directly by the listing broker. We believe no other firm in the City matches this suite of services.
Leslie J. Garfield & Co., Inc. takes the view that an in-depth knowledge of the townhouse market provides sellers with a real sense of market conditions. Our understanding of building and tenant rules, regulations, and codes allows us to inform owners how to maximize the value of their properties. Ultimately, our grasp of the market as a whole, combined with our relationships with the real estate community creates a competitive marketplace for every property we represent.
Mr. Garfield's expertise in his field, and that of the sales specialists who work for him, has been recognized by numerous institutions and individuals for whom they serve as advisors. Leslie Garfield is the former Chairman of the Sales Brokers Committee of the Real Estate Board of New York and a judge of the "Deal of the Year Award for Manhattan." Jed Garfield, representing the second generation of this family-run firm, has recently been appointed Managing Partner. The firm is well known in the industry for repeatedly making record-setting sales including the Duke Mansion at 1009 Fifth Avenue for $40 million, the Japanese Embassy at 11-13 East 62nd Street for $21 million and 352 Riverside Drive for $15.75 million.
