We are writing in reference of Sam Ibrahim, Peter Ashe Real Estate, who represented us as our real estate broker during the purchase of our co-op apartment in New York City. As a first time home buyers we understandably needed some guidance and information. We were so fortunate to work with Sam Ibrahim. His professional skills and knowledge strike one right from the first encounter with Sam. Extremely helpful and friendly, always available on the phone when you need him, he made our purchase just a pleasant and successful experience.
Sam worked very smoothly with all people involved in the processes from both sides including our real estate attorney, mortgage broker, co-op management team as well as the seller’s broker.
We highly recommend Sam Ibrahim to anyone who is looking for a great, knowledgable, hard-working realtor.
Asher Alcobi did a phenomenal job of listening to our objectives and helping us clarify our ideal apartment. In the real estate industry you need someone you can trust, a helper who goes the extra mile. Asher is that Agent. We truly appreciate all the hard work he put in to helping us locate, research and purchase our apartment. His extensive knowledge of the area made all the difference to us. The exceptional personal service provided by him and his team certainly should be commended. We truly thank him for helping us create an enjoyable experience for our family, we couldn’t be happier with the service and results.
Sam Ibrahim assisted me in getting a rental property in NYC, which was a daunting experience for me as a foreigner in a cut throat (so I heard before going to NYC) industry. I highly recommend Peter Ashe group and also Sam. He was always very very helpful and very responsive to all the questions and concerns we brought to his attention. Sam went out of his way for us even after we had moved out and even dropped of our TWC equipment after we had already moved out. He also assisted in negotiating a 2month extension after our lease agreement ended in order to accommodate which helped us out tremendously as it would have been so much hassle to move only for a 2 month period.
All and all a very good experience with the Peter Ashe group and especially Sam Ibrahim. Thanks so much.
Within two days, Meirav of Peter Ashe was able to locate a perfect rental for me and my family. The apartments that were shown were tailored to our needs as she listened to our requirements. Without hesitation, I recommend her services.
ASK FOR SAM IBRAHIM AND USE HIM AS YOUR BROKER.
My wife found Sam when we were looking for an apartment in Astoria almost two year ago. From the start, he was a consummate professional: Responsive, friendly, diligent, honest, patient...all the qualities you want in someone trying to help you find a great place to live. Sam lives in Astoria and works in Manhattan and Astoria. His knowledge of the market is very impressive. We could tell from the start that he had a lot of experience in his trade and loves what he does. To this day, I could pick up the phone and know Sam would greet me warmly and help me to the best of his ability. I have referred people to him and he has given them the golden treatment that he gave us. Sam has become a family friend. If you are looking for assistance in finding a new place, give him a call.
A quick review: I give Peter Ashe, especially Sam Ibrahim, my highest recommendation!! Sam was a pleasure to work with, very helpful, patient and moved the buying process along speedily. A seasoned pro, Sam has much knowledge of the sales and rental market, a very helpful combo when searching for a condo to rent out in the future.
A detailed review:
I met Sam Ibrahim when attending open house for one of his sales listings. It had been a long day: I had been to 10 open houses before this one. By the time I got to Sam's open house, I was disappointed by the listings I had seen, and even more disappointed by the agents, as most of the sales agents at the open houses seemed bored, disinterested and were not helpful in showing the property or answering questions. What a relief it was to walk into the open house and meet Sam! He smiled when he opened the door. He enthusiastically showed me the property. He was honest about the apartment's both good and bad features. After that meeting, I told Sam I wasn't interested in the property, but I asked him to be my buyer's broker.
As a first-time buyer, especially in New York, I had many questions through the buying process. Sam was patient and helpful with providing me all the information I needed. A seasoned pro, Sam knew the ins and outs of the market. He was familiar with and friendly with many of the sales agents that we met as we looked at properties, which was also helpful. As we looked at properties, Sam was at each appointment with me. He could quickly spot the positive elements of a listing, and the negative ones. His familiarity with the rental market was helpful in selecting a property that would be easy to rent out in the future. Up until the closing, which Sam came to, Sam was always very responsive, detailed and helpful with answering questions and providing information.

From small rental studios to brownstone and penthouse sales. Very knowledgeable and courteous."
"I had a great experience with Peter*Ashe Real Estate. I choose them because my friend - who also found a place with their help - recommended them to me. And I am so happy that I took his recommendation. Meirav helped me find a studio that was in my budget and in a safe place with a great deal. She showed it to me before showing it to anyone else because she knew I needed a place urgently. So I am very grateful for that. You can definitely trust them."
