Confidently Navigate
New York City Real Estate

The Columbia Vitolo Team at Compass brings unmatched experience, market knowledge, and a time-tested process to help you buy and sell real estate.

With over 30,000 real estate agents in New York City, finding an agent you can trust to manage one of your most important financial and personal transactions isn’t easy.

Inexperienced agents may undervalue your property, causing you to miss out on potential profits.

Even experienced agents may use passive marketing strategies, leaving your property with minimal exposure and few showings.

Hiring the Mega Team you see all over social media will result in your sale being delegated to junior agents who lack experience and knowledge.

Using the wrong agent can result in a lower sale price or, worse, purchasing the wrong property.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are you

The Columbia Vitolo Team is one of the top boutique real estate teams at Compass Real Estate and has sold over $1.6 Billion in real estate.

Unlike most successful teams, we are selective about who we work with, allowing us the benefit of personal attention to every client.

We work everywhere in Manhattan and most neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Nationally we have a network of the best agents in the top 20 markets in the United States that can service any of your real estate needs.

We are not discount brokers. We value relationships, and our fee structure is competitive.
No! We have built our business on providing 6-star service to every client from $500,000 to $30,000,000. Price is not our focus; the relationship matters most to us, and each client gets the same level of attention.
Yes, we have an expert team of rental listing and tenant specialists.
Call us; getting a second or third opinion is always a good idea. Sorry, your property hasn’t sold. We know that can be frustrating.
No, StreetEasy agents are selected primarily for their ability to convert leads (You) and close sales. We don’t use pressure tactics. Most importantly, we don’t treat our clients as “leads” or numbers. Nearly 90% of our business comes from repeat clients or personal referrals. Are you thinking about using a StreetEasty assigned agent? You can do better.
Unlike those Mega teams you see on TV, our business is more hands-on because 90% of our clients are referred by a past client or someone we know. You are hiring us, the principals of the team, and along with that, our 38 years of experience is what you are going to get. Once we have a deal in place, our team will take over and work with you to prepare your purchase application and work with you step by step through closing.

Yes. Valuing real estate is not something that an algorithm can effectively do; ask Zillow, who has lost $500 Million trying to value properties this way. We provide free advice and valuations all the time. Reach out anytime; we will give you the information you need to decide if selling is right for you. Your valuation is prepared by one of our team principals. Take a look here for more details.

The listing agent (the onsite agent) works for the developer. Their job is to get the developer the most money possible for each property. They are not allowed to put your financial needs above the developer’s. So having a buyers agent working with you (one that has worked extensively with developers and representing buyers is the wisest decision you can make when shopping. New Development purchasing is not very transparent; having an experienced buyer agent with solid relationships with these projects will get you the best apartment and price. We can often negotiate not only the price of the apartment but concessions for closing costs.

No! We love sharing our knowledge and helping everyone find their place in the world. Call us for a discreet consultation.
