Rory Clark

  • Rory helped me buy a home

      Rory is fantastic. Responsive, kind, helpful, helped me get my apartment for much less than I would have thought possible. I highly highly recommend him.

    • Rory worked proactively and diligently to get my apartment sold for top dollar. He gives 100% to all his clients. Would definitely recommend him to others who are looking to buy or sell in the city.

      - Murray Hill, NY, NY
    • Rory is an excellent broker. He is dedicated, responsive, truly cares about helping his clients find the perfect home and applies the right level of pressure when needed during the course of a sale. Rory has an abundance of knowledge regarding the NY real estate market that he willingly shares to assist in making the right choice about the best location to buy. This is our second time working with Rory and would strongly endorse him to anyone looking to buy a home in NYC.

      - Upper West Side, NY, NY
    • Rory is a natural at this business. He was exceptionally well informed about the immediate market, and shared his knowledge efficiently and thoroughly. He was extremely responsive in all communications and anticipated many of our questions and concerns. He was particularly good at helping us manage through the mortgage and coop board approval processes minimizing the onerous parts of those tedious processes. We will strongly and proactively recommend Rory's services to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Manhattan.

      - Gary Baumer
    • My husband and I have purchased and sold multiple properties throughout our marriage , and at no time have we had an agent we thought more highly of than Rory. From the start it was evident he had his finger on the pulse of the market. He assessed our condo property value accurately, promoted it beautifully, and pursued every sales opportunity with integrity and diligence, all the while maintaining direct communication with us. In addition, he was thoughtful in interacting with our renter, which we greatly appreciated, and always the epitome of professionalism in all his dealings. Our highest accolades, however, lie with Rory's negotiation skills, as he secured for us the highest price per sq. ft. of any property sold in our building in recent times. We are happy to give Rory our highest recommendation because he truly deserves it.

      - Judy Matz, Gramercy, NY, NY
    • Rory was extremely helpful in my search for a new home. After more than a year of searching for a new apartment, I couldn't be more thankful that I was put in touch with Rory. He worked tirelessly to show me apartments that fit my guidelines and followed up on every lead. Rory made the entire offer and application process easy to go through, and provided invaluable insights along the way. I would recommend Rory to anyone looking for a hardworking, smart, and personable realtor who has his clients best interest in mind.

      - dnesto01, Fort Greene, Brooklyn, NY
    • Recently, I worked with Mr. Rory Clark, an agent with Halstead properties. It was a great experience and productive! He was professional, knowledgeable and courteous. He was prepared for our meeting, energetic and prompt. He choose properties that exceeded my expectations. He provided details, helpful insights and useful information for each property viewed. I would highly recommend him to anyone searching for a New York City property!

    • Rory was instrumental to my purchase of a condo in NYC. As a new buyer in the NY real estate market without a broker, I was unfamiliar with the entire process. However, Rory was able to help me at every step of the way. What separates Rory from other brokers is his dedication to all parties of the sale and his real estate network. Even though Rory represented the seller in this transaction, he was more than happy to answer all of my questions promptly, through e-mail and phone calls, and to provide constant updates to ensure that I understood what was happening. His knowledge of the real estate market was invaluable as he was able to provide me with lists of attorneys and homeowner insurance brokerages from his network. The end result was a closing where I felt confident about the entire process and thrilled about my new condo. In short, I would recommend Rory to both new and seasoned property buyers/sellers; I will definitely be working with him in the future.

      - Jeffrey R Kong
    • Let me say this upfront - without Rory's assistance, I would not be happily ensconced in my new apartment right now. He understood what I wanted (in terms of budget and other general requirements) and pointed me in the right direction by providing honest feedback on properties I thought were viable. Once I settled on an apartment, he guided me throughout - from contract negotiation to closing. He is great to work with (it helps that he's a cheerful person with a ready smile) and I definitely recommend him for your real estate needs in Manhattan.

    • Rory Clark began as a mentor, turned into a friend, and luckily, spent some time as my real estate agent. Rory spent his time listening to my wants followed by applying my wants into 10 different apartment options throughout 3 short hours. Traveling from the eighties to the seventies down to the forties back to the eighties on an expertly planned ten-apartment tour of open houses. After each apartment, Rory answered all of our questions and concerns about each apartment. After our tenth apartment, I walked out and told Rory, "I loved that apartment." Less than three months later, that apartment is now mine. And its mine due to Rory's following traits:-Local knowledge of the City incl: a young professional belonging on the UES-Process expertise incl: ---An Offer sheet that began negotiations---Negotiation tactics that brought the price down to a bargain for the location.---Closing skills that finalized the deal in less than 3 months-I am convinced Rory does not sleep as he responded to messages at any hour about any topic.Rory Clark turned an overwhelming process into a manageable and fun Summer. And because of him I expect to move into NYC before Summer is over! Thank you Rory!

      - Adam J Zahn, Upper East Side, NY, NY
    • PERFECTION! That's how I would describe Rory and our experience with our first of what I hope to be many purchases of properties in Manhattan. Rory was knowledgeable in all aspects of Manhattan real estate. When we asked a question there was always an immediate answer. He was completely aware of the necessary paperwork and board approval process of purchasing a co-op and guided us through each step of the way. It couldn't have been easier! Rory was so in tune to what we were looking for we found our dream apartment the very first day. Rory was respectful of our time and not one of the apartments he showed us did not meet the perimeters that we had set. There is no question that we will use Rory in all our future real estate purchases.

      - beansellr, Upper East Side, NY, NY
    • Although we had purchased many homes before, this was our first NYC co-op. Rory's expertise, patience and guidance made this process so pleasant and reduced the stress tremendously. From our initial day of apartment hunting, Rory had a game plan to capture the most apartment open houses efficiently and geographically convenient. Rory had checklists, recommendations and guidance that far surpassed our expectations. From the outset of having available recommendations for attorneys, Rory, even after closing, had recommendations for contractors. His walk-through checklist made the process fast and his respect for OUR time was immeasurable.

      - aandbtrading, Upper East Side, NY, NY
    • Rory represented the landlord of my apartment. He was extremely honest, professional and efficient. When he said he would deliver something he always did -- promptly. He was very reasonable and would go back to the landlord with any concerns I had. In all cases, these issues were reasonably resolved with no debate. It was a pleasure to work with someone who you feel you can rely on!

    • Rory was exceptional in assisting us purchase our condo, he was diligent, proactive and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate transactions. We will be using him for all future purchases.

      - fredlouinc
    • Rory has stellar communication skills. He keeps clients informed, is aware of the needs of all constituents and cares. Most importantly, Rory listens and understands a client's perspective. He also has the wonderful trait of persistence. Rory gets the job done. My husband Matt and I fully endorse Rory Clark.

      - Kazzager, Tudor City, NY, NY
    • Amazing experience. Can't say enough good things about Rory. As someone new to the entire purchasing process, he was helped me through the process with his knowledge, his documentation, over communication, and ultimately, "hand held" me through the process. What I appreciate most was his extensive network to help me through the process. Even if i didn't end up using a particular contact, it gave me some perspective of the market. Couldn't ask for a better guide through a very difficult process.

      - yoonkee, Hell's Kitchen, NY, NY
    • Very please by his availabilty and professionalism. Very courteous person. He did spend a lot of time in organizing open doors and showing the apartment to potential buyers.

      - jmf16, Gramercy, NY, NY
    • During the entire process, Rory has been very helpful and organized and kept everything in line with expectations. Even after the deal went through, he is being very kind to follow up and answer my questions as a first timer home owner.

      - xiazhengyi1985, Upper East Side, NY, NY
    • I began my housing search process by looking at roughly 50 places without a dedicated buyers broker. While looking at various places, I was not only focused on the property, but also got a feel for the broker showing me the listing as I knew that at some point in my search, I would want to work with a dedicated Buyers Broker. After all the places I viewed, I felt that Rory was by far the best broker. In particular, I appreciated his responsiveness, knowledge and patience. Whenever I sent Rory a message, he would often respond instantaneously either with a phone called or a detailed email. As it relates to Rorys knowledge, he had a deep understanding of the New York market and was able to effectively teach me about the market and the buying process which allowed me to purchase with confidence. Rory did this all while remaining extremely patient with me. I am the type of consumer who asks a lot of detailed questions and seeks to ensure that I have a comprehensive understanding of the product before coming to a decision. Rory answered every single one of my questions and I never felt as though I was rushed to make a decision. Overall, I wholeheartedly will recommend Rory to friends and/or family members that are looking to purchase a home in New York City.

      - Triston Francis, Hell's Kitchen, NY, NY
    • Rory did a first class job for us. He is incredibly responsive, has a good knowledge of the market and, rare in this business, clearly puts the clients interests ahead of his own. He is also very creative, willing to come up with solutions and different ways of looking at things. I would absolutely recommend Rory.

      - colinwp3, Gramercy, NY, NY
    • The sale of my apartment was a challenge because of prior tenant issues and a series of unfortunate occurrences related to its sale before Rory came on board as my agent. Rory is fair, balanced and represented my needs exclusively in the sale of my apartment. He responded quickly to my concerns and had an answer for me in a timely fashion. He had many open houses and private showings. I HIGHLY recommend Rory Clark. No nonsense man. Straight forward. Consistent. Reliable.

      - drjudyscheel, Upper West Side, NY, NY
    • Rory was absolutely AMAZING and a pleasure to work with. I'm new to the purchasing process, and Rory guided me through the process with his knowledge and expertise. He informed me on every step of the process and flagged for me any potential concerns. Rory was always there for me and was willing to answer any of the questions I have until I fully understood. I highly recommend Rory to anyone who is looking to purchase any property. You will be at ease, and Rory will make your purchasing experience a happy journey!

      - shelleyxue89, Garment District, NY, NY
    • My husband and I brought Rory in when it became very clear that buying a co-op in NYC is no joke! What is a taxing and somewhat emotional situation was often eased by Rory's confident manner. He is very approachable and down to earth, qualities we both respect. He was able to find the right balance of conveying his knowledge and opinion. We truly enjoyed working with him and would recommend him highly.

      - fredibeth, Midtown, NY, NY
    • Rory was unbelievably helpful! He was able to show us a ton of apartments and was right by our side the entire time. He was positive throughout the process and was available at all hours to help with anything!

      - 2015
    • It was such a pleasure working with Rory! He is the ultimate real estate professional. His knowledge of the real estate market trends in New York, his negotiating skills and responsiveness to client needs, as well as his expertise in the listing and selling process are impressive. I would definitely recommend Rory for selling, buying or leasing real estate property in NYC.

      - annabelguev, Tudor City, NY, NY
    • I first met Rory at an open house where he was the listing broker. After peppering him with questions about the aptartment and buying in general I immediately thought that he would be a great broker to help me with my apartment purchase in Manhattan as he seemed to have a great command and understanding of the market. My instinct was correct, and as a first time buyer I found an experienced broker like Rory helped me tremendously in navigating the market and understanding all the complicated aspects of the co-op purchasing process. Rory has a remarkable ability to listen and retain everything that you say and distill it to what you truly want. He will keep you focused in your search, recalls all your likes and dislikes about apartments you view, and uses that information to zero in on the best matched listings with the greatest efficiency. Not just a broker but an accidental therapist ;) , he has lots of patience for the nervous or picky buyer. Most importantly, it was clear that Rory was always looking out for my financial best interest. He would consider and make clear all financial implications of certain purchases, with a sophisticated understanding of pricing dynamics. I highly recommend Rory to anyone looking for a broker in Manhattan and plan to work with him on future real estate transactions.

      - Becci Weiss, Sutton Place, Manhattan, NY, NY
    • Rory was a consummate professional. At every stage, he gave thoughtful advice and exhibited masterful knowledge of the process. He also has great contacts in the business. We highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home. He was a pleasure to work with.

      - lampkaren, Turtle Bay, NY, NY
    • It is a rare find to discover a real estate professional in Manhattan with a clients best interest at heart. Having just closed on a condominiums in Battery Park, I enthusiastically recommend Rory if you are in need of real estate services. Professional at all times, but never stuffy, and always available to answer and advise, Rory made the process as painless as a real estate transaction can be. A skilled negotiator, he has the experience and skills to move the process along, and knows how to navigate the pitfalls and traps of this very difficult market. My closing was difficult to say the least, by each and every time an issue arose, Rory was on top of it and handled the matter so I could focus on my business and family. I have come to trust Rory and I recommend him with no reservation to anyone looking to buy or sell in Manhattan.

      - tcardillo926, Battery Park, NY, NY
    • I was looking to buy an apartment in Manhattan and met Rory at one of the viewings. Compared to many of the other brokers I met, Rory seemed to understand my constraints and needs very well therefore I proceeded to work with him. It has been an excellent experience working with Rory! He has proven to be very knowledgable of the New York real estate market. He answered all questions and concerns that I had quite thoroughly and helped me find an apartment that I could afford and took me through the entire process from finding the place to moving in. I was very impressed by how fast and responsive Rory is and could tell that he was constantly looking out for my best interests. I look forward to working with him again in the future!

      - Waseem Ahmad, Gramercy, NY, NY
    • I'm happy to recommend Rory as the consummate professional in all matters relating to Real Estate. On every measure he was outstanding and also polished and fun to be associated with.

      - ctlandor, Tudor City, NY, NY
    • Rory was a great resource and asset in this whole process. He has a pool of buyers already and very knowledgeable on the market. You can definitely count on him working hard to sell your place and the highest price possible. We would work with him again!

      - Diana Wyuen, Gramercy, NY, NY
    • Rory was an amazing agent. He was always available, informative and kept me updated throughout my apartment sale process. He was able to get a sale price over asking! I would highly recommend Rory to anyone looking to rent or sell their home.

      - EvanWeiss1, Upper East Side, NY, NY
    • Rory was always informative, detailed, and always available during my recent sale. I called him super-agent because I got an offer over asking price. Highly recommend if you are looking to sell or rent your apartment.

      - evweiss11, Upper East Side, NY, NY
    • I cannot say enough positive things about Rory, he was a joy to work with from start to finish. As a first time home buyer, I relied upon Rory to help me navigate every step of the process. He went above and beyond to make sure that all my questions were answered and that I was on track with the myriad of tasks. Rory scheduled weekly calls with me during the search process and was instrumental in helping me find my perfect apartment. Rory's professionalism shone through in a dramatic way when my bidding process happened concurrent to the birth of his first child. Calling me from outside the delivery room, Rory shared with me two pieces of good news: my offer was accepted and his wife had given birth. Rory is a shining example of someone who loves his job and provides an experience for his clients that's second to none. I will continue to sing Rory's praises to anyone that's buying or selling a home - I can't imagine that there's a better broker out there!

      - Peter S Sykes, Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, NY
    • Rory helped us sell our NYC condo. He is organized, works hard, and "watched over" the process during and after the contract period. This meant a more efficient process in reaching the closing table. We are very grateful for his work.

      - Lgoldhealth, Gramercy, NY, NY
    • Rory has been very easy to work with -totally reliable, helpful and knowledgeable. Unit had an offer next day it was listed and sold above asking price.

      - Amanda
    • Rory has now helped us either buy, sell, or rent properties and I can say without hesitation that he is a total professional. He is honest, attentive, and patient, willing to walk us through all the finer points of the real estate process without being condescending or underhanded. He's proactive in negotiations and is an expert at understanding and completing board packages. We look forward to using him again in the future!

      - mark17586, Sutton Place, NY, NY
    • Rory helped us market and sell our non-renovated coop in a very challenging market. He was calm and provided valued practical and data-driven guidance to get us over the finish line. He also never hesitated to tell us things like he saw them which helped efficiently drive us through the process.

      - anziskad, Upper East Side, NY, NY
    • Rory did a superb job in helping my nephew and his wife find their new apartment.
