Long Island City-Based Realtor Says Sales Keep Climbing as Neighborhood Continues Real Estate ‘Renaissance’



Nov. 21, 2018, Sponsored Story


A local realtor who has helped many people find homes in Long Island City says that he and his team have recently experienced a surge in sales transactions in the bustling western Queens market.

Ivan Palov, of the self-named Ivan Palov Team at Spire Group, says he has overseen more than 1,100 transactions in his decade-long real estate career, from helping students rent their first apartment in New York to matching families with luxury 3- bedroom penthouses. Now, Palov says, he and his team are busier with sales more than ever.

“More and more people want to move and stay in Long Island City, not for a short term period but to start a family and be a part of the community,” Palov stated.

Palov moved to New York from Bulgaria at the age of 19 in 2006, and fell in love with Long Island City after settling into a residence near Queensboro Plaza  in 2010.

“A friend introduced me to real estate 10 years ago, and when I moved to Long Island City, I immediately saw its potential,” Palov shared.

When he first started as an agent, Palov said there wasn’t much competition in the sales or rental market in Long Island City, stating that there were many opportunities for growth and development for a team that he would eventually put together.

The Ivan Palov Team at Spire Group currently consists of two other members, Pavla Petrova and Vlad Vladimirov, each of whom have been on the team for the past two years.

With more than 60 positive reviews in the real estate site Naked Apartments, over 50 reviews on Yelp, and many positive remarks from former clients on Zillow, Ivan says his reputation with helping clients get the best price for a unit speaks for itself. He said he is a certified negotiator and is known for his “blatant honesty” when managing transactions.

Ivan, who is a graduate of Adelphi University, has a degree in International Relations and Business, along with an MBA from MCNY. He has also recently completed a diploma program in Residential Property Management at NYU to further expand his skills and expertise in the real estate market.
