Alex was born in Baltimore and has lived all over the country and traveled all over the world before making NYC his home over five years ago. He has developed excellent interpersonal skills through his personal experiences and previous roles in customer service, massage therapy, bartending and waiting. Alex has been successful in lending those skills to serve his real estate clients exceptionally well in their search for Upper West Side real estate. When he’s not working on his next real estate deal, Alex can be found performing as a member of the Queens based musical troupe- a music improv group. Or, if it’s a nice day, you may find him relaxing in Riverside Park enjoying the sun.

Alex is a great broker- we felt like we were dealing with a friend. He was honest, showed us places within our contraints (didn’t try to ” force sell” apartments that didn’t fit our specs), and gave us so much information about the market and how/when to look. We would use him again in a heartbeat!

NYC is full of real estate agents that care more about getting a broker’s commission than anything else.  Love Where You Live Realty is such a breath of fresh air because Alex really made it important from the start that his job was to find a place that worked for us.  He even came over to our apartment to see what kind of furniture we had in order to get a feel for the the kind of place we were looking for.  There were never any sneaky tactics or sales pressure.  I highly recommend Alex if you are searching for your next apartment on the UWS.

Alex is a pleasure to work with! He paid attention to the apartment features that mattered most to me and was very honest/ communicative about the places he was sharing with me. He was always willing to accommodate my crazy schedule and had good wisdom to share at every turn. I highly recommend him!

My roommate and I worked with Alex and the process was seamless! I found an apartment on Saturday, saw it Sunday, and we applied for it Tuesday. He even met me and my roommate two different times within the same day so that we could see the apartment. Once we applied for the apartment we worked with Mike who made sure we had all of our paperwork and even called us a few times to discuss our application.

Once we were approved for our apartment Mike and Alex made it super easy to sign and we move in just a couple of weeks!

Brokers in New York are generally not the greatest for many reasons, but Mike and Alex were awesome and I highly, highly recommend using them.

I just signed a lease on a beautiful place Alex Bar-av found for me. What a positive experience…
Alex really listened and understood what I was looking for. Then he researched the market and brought me far better options than any other broker.

I would easily recommend Alex to any of my friends.

I worked with Alex Bar-av of Love Where You Live Realty, and I had a fantastic experience.. the whole process was very smooth and surprisingly fun. Alex was extremely knowledgeable about the UWS and its apartment scene.. these guys seem to one of the few who’ve mastered it..I had briefly interacted with a broker from Citi Habitats, and the experience doesn’t even compare.

Between Mike and Alex, we had outstanding service with this company! Alex, especially, went above and beyond to assist us in finding our perfect apartment, and most importantly, connected and understood our situation on a level I didn’t receive from any other realty company. We will definitely work with him again! You guys are on another level when it comes to the quality of apartments we have seen on the Upper West Side – all on the same budget as other realtors. We couldn’t be more happier with the service and feel confident going forward with Alex and company 🙂

I worked with Alex Bar-av of Love Where You Live Realty, and I had a fantastic experience.

In summary, I apartment-hunted for a few hours on a Friday, found a great place and quickly applied for it, and got my apartment after the weekend.  I moved into my apartment less than a week after I initially contacted the realty.  My place is in a great neighborhood, and my rent was even less than what I had optimistically expected to pay!  The whole process was very smooth and surprisingly fun.

Alex was extremely knowledgeable about the UWS and its apartment scene.  He took me to only places that satisfied my preferences, and was actively trying to get more places that had just been listed while we apartment hunted.  Everyone will tell you that the Manhattan apartment scene is very wild and dynamic, and these guys seem to one of the few who’ve mastered it.

I also appreciated that he was very straight forward and no-BS, although the coffee, free cab rides, and comedy show tickets were a great touch!

I had briefly interacted with a broker from Citi Habitats, and the experience doesn’t even compare.  If you’re going to be using a broker to find an apartment in Manhattan, I highly recommend Love Where You Live Realty.

P.S. ilovetheupperwestside.com is a great website for pretty much everything you need to know for living, visiting, or apartment-hunting in this neighborhood!

Alex Bar-av is a dedicated, trustworthy broker who works hard to find you exactly what you’re looking for.  I found him professional and personable. He’s also incredibly patient and will help you fine-tune what you THINK you want to what you REALLY want.  Manhattan real estate can feel like a hailstorm of disappointment and frustration but Alex helps guide you through all that.  I had a very positive experience and totally recommend you contact Alex.
