I've had quite a few dealings with realtors and procuring commercial leases over the years and my experience with David Ratner was by far, the best! He was always accessible, accommodating, courteous and more than professional. A very pleasant experience throughout and though he was representing the landlord, it felt like he was representing the tenant. I highly recommend David!
David was extremely helpful and professional in our studios pursuit for obtaining premium office space in Brooklyn. He was sensitive to all our various studio needs and made sure to get us what we needed, as well as kept the process really smooth. Most importantly, he was extremely responsive and kind, as well as willing to work with us. He made finding an office space in Brooklyn a great experience, I would highly recommend David.
We were so fortunate to have Dave as our realtor in this transaction
My brother and I hired Dave to sell our Dad's 3 Family Brownstone which had been in our family for over 100 yrs.Needless to say, it was a very emotional decision and Dave was there for us every step of the way.He worked tirelessly on the marketing, holding two open houses on Sat and Sunday for two consecutive weeks and had over 100 buyers come through the house.Dave got it sold and closed in 70 days and for $100,000 over asking price with multiple offers to choose from. He made it seem easy but being a licensed real estate agent myself with Sotheby's International Realty in New Jersey I was acutely aware of the professionalism,knowledge and skills to make this happen.Especially with a home that had not been updated and in total need of repair. I can't say enough good things about Dave, but I will say its the company and marketing first that gets the exposure but if you don't have a dedicated,professional on your side it doesn't matter what company you choose.I firmly believe Dave got this done for us without any drama,stress or aggravation.He exceeded our expectations with kindness and compassion too.We were so fortunate to have Dave as our realtor in this transaction.
Selling a home and moving is stressful on the mind and body. But having a person who is professional, knowledgeable and compassionate makes all the difference. I live out of state and was not able to manage the selling of my elderly mother’s condo. Dave was there every step of the way helping her. Not only did he sell the condo at the right price in the right timeframe, but he went that extra mile to keep my mother at ease with the overall move and maintained constant communication with me and all interested parties. He treated my mother with great respect and much patience, where other realtors were dismissive. Don’t confuse his empathy with weakness. He showed great tenacity where needed to push those who needed it. If you are looking for a realtor who has your best interest at heart – Dave Ratner is your man. Thank you Dave!!!!
"Hi David, On behalf of 364 Clinton Street LLC, we want to thank you for the great effort, persistence, and dedication that you so faithfully provided in representing us in the sale of our building. There were times because of all the pitfalls and unfortunate circumstances, it didn’t look like it would happen but thanks to your optimism and unwavering effort, we were finally able to close on the sale. Thank you, David, Liz, and Jose for a job well done!"
I don't normally engage in a commercial lease, but when I do... I call David Ratner
First and foremost, David is a good guy to deal with. More often then not, it's hard to find a realtor who's easy going. David is professional, diligent and a good listener. He also doesn't BS. He tells it like it is when he's creating a strategy for you, yet a smooth-talker with the landlords. The bottom line is, he has your best interests in mind because he knows that a happy client is a repeat client- and that will definitely be the case with me.
David just recently landed me an amazing place in NYC. I was under a very limited amount of time to find a new home and David was able to find me an awesome new apartment for a great price and in an ideal location for work. The man knows how operate in times of pressure and I'm proud to call him my friend after going through the moving process with him. The man is honestly among the best of the best in the industry and I'd highly recommend him to anybody who is serious about finding the right home.
It was a pleasure working with Dave. Very professional, knowledgable and kept us informed throughout the proccess. We have used his services before and will do so again in the future.

I asked Dave to find a tenant for my building. Could not have asked for a more professional and effective service.
Really, really impressed with the work of you and your team!
Really, really impressed with the work of you and your team. Particularly appreciate you putting up with me and this lien-business. Thanks for the credit re: RockStar. When this is all put to bed, and all money lands where it needs to, dinner on me somewhere really fcking good.
Dave, I can't express enough how grateful I am for all your hard work with selling my Cobble Hill Townhouse! You did an amazing job and achieved a record that I didn't even expect, to be honest. From now own any real estate related work is yours. Keep up the good work and I am looking forward working with you again!
Dave was incredibly professional and responsive throughout our apartment search process. He responded to emails promptly and ensured we felt secure about the lease and apartment. Can't recommend him highly enough.
