John sold my condo in Manhattan and also helped me look for a place in Brooklyn. I have recommended John to numerous friends and collegues because he's smart and gets the job done but he's also a really nice guy who puts his client's interests first. John was very sympathetic to our unique needs (we were expecting twins) and we never felt pressured, but he gave us excellent guidance about the properties we viewed and was extremely knowledgeable about market conditions. He was always incredibly responsive. I have bought and sold several places over the years and John is easily the best broker I've ever worked with. -James D, Seller
In this crazy New York market, John helped me find and purchase my first home. He is very professional and easy to get along with. He was extremely thorough in his efforts – he sent me new listings when they came on the market and even got me into a number of listings before they were publicly listed through his contacts in the brokerage community. As a first time home buyer, this was the biggest purchase of my life. John was patient with me and clearly answered my questions and concerns, demystifying the complicated process of purchasing a home in New York City. I highly recommend working with John! -J. Starks, Buyer
It is with pleasure that I write this recommendation for John Bataille. John was extremely helpful in locating the home we purchased in Ridgewood. He is knowledgeable, experienced, personable and responsive. Having no understanding of the complicated and expensive NY real estate market, John was very patient and attentive as my husband and I navigated through the various stages. Whenever we had questions, John responded immediately. Not only is John competent, responsible and hardworking, but also a very nice person. He often went out of his way to help and make suggestions. We were very happy with his professionalism and kindness. -Judy Mino, Buyer
John was a fantastic advocate for me during the entire process. He is very professional and a great problem solver. John worked diligently to make sure I was able to see the property as needed during the closing period. He made sure that our communication with the sellers was consistent. I highly recommend working with him! -Diana Mino, Buyer
John is a wonderful, professional guy who became known to us when we asked a couple who used to live in our building who they used when they bought a condo in Greenpoint. They enthusiastically recommended we use him and I can see why! He takes the time to think through things with my wife and me. We just had a baby so we're taking a bit of time off on our search to buy an apartment-- but we'll resume working with John as soon as we can! I feel confident that John will help us land something amazing soon! I definitely suggest that folks looking to buy a place get in touch with him. -Andrew Shapiro, Buyer
John was very responsive and thorough during the entire process. He always took the time to communicate all of the appropriate information to put me in the best position going forward. I would absolutely work with him again! -Matthew Marino, Buyer
John dedicated himself fully to helping us find our dream Brooklyn apartment. Based on ongoing conversations about the things that were most important to our growing family, John was able to contribute his encyclopedic knowledge of Brooklyn real estate to introduce us to neighborhoods and listings that fit our priorities. He was patient as we explored apartments and asked question after question. Finally, John found us the perfect apartment in the Columbia Street Waterfront District. It had everything we were hoping for -- 2.5 bedrooms, outdoor space, the perfect neighborhood. Having worked with other agents in the past, I can say John was by far the best. -Eric Ditzian, Buyer

John Bataille helped me sell my home in Brooklyn. I am not very familiar with real estate market, and trusted John's advice on setting the price that would attract buyers and helped me move the property quickly. As promised he delivered on a good deal that was above list, he also advised me on how to deal with my tenants throughout the transaction. He was professional, courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and managed the transaction from beginning to end. I would highly recommend John for both buying and selling. he is most certainly a step above anyone else I have met in the real estate business. - Steven Romano, Seller
In a tough market for buyers, especially for 2 bedroom apartments, John has been tireless and thorough in his efforts to find us our next home. John is quick to send us details of any place with potential so that we can review our options as soon as they appear on the market. We're very picky, and John has been patient and understanding every step of the way.
We've just closed on an apartment thanks to John's efforts! His expertise and diligence were especially appreciated as we had to deal with a difficult seller. He was also always available to answer questions throughout the process and has been incredibly helpful. We highly recommend working with John. -Joanna Kelly, Buyer
We sold and bought apartments with John, not only is he an excellent resource navigating the market but he is also a fantastic partner to bounce concerns off of and to debate a potential decisions with. He's a professional and unemotional when giving advice - most important he's a straight shooter, never sugar coating issues with a property. He is our go to Real Estate pro and I would have no concerns recommending him for all sizes of transactions. -Jenell Covino, Buyer & Seller
As a local mortgage banker, I work with John and his clients regularly. I can say that John has always looked out for his clients' best interests and puts their needs first. He is also easily adaptable to the different types of buyers that we've worked with. He has a deep understanding of the investment side of real estate as well as the emotional side, which makes him an excellent fit for your real estate needs since investing in real estate is usually a very emotional process. I strongly recommend John without reservation. -Mark Maimon, Mortgage Broker
I met John at an open house for one of his listings. He asked about my situation, and if he could send me some listings. I did not think I needed a buyer's broker, but said sure, what can it hurt. Eventually, while I was on a business trip, a house that had been taken off the market reappeared. I called John and expressed my interest, and he made sure the bidding didn't close until I had a chance to come back and make an official offer. From then on, he was extremely helpful through a complicated process that included dealing with some issues found in the inspection and a tenant in the property. I would gladly recommend John either as a listing agent or with help if you're having trouble finding a home in this tough environment.
John has been extremely helpful and patient in my search for an investment property. He is knowledgeable and responsive to a client's needs. I would highly recommend John to anyone who is looking for real estate. -Chris Morrison, Buyer/Seller
