We worked with Vladimir Kulagin as our Buyer''s Agent to find an apartment to purchase in NYC. He was a great man for the job - very responsive and professional. He dealt effectively with difficult counterparties, was always on task, always with a smile. We had a few deals fall apart but he never gave up and quickly found the next opportunity. As a result, we found exactly what we wanted, down to the last detail. Excellent work, Vladimir, thank you!

Vlad, In the game of NYC Realty, you are a first ballot hall of famer and your jersey will one day hang in the rafters of Bulgaria. This poem is a gift and I want you to keep it" "I once had a broker named bad vlad Times with him were happy and sad. We started on the east, After we enjoyed a McDonald''s feast, And close comrades we became at once. After murray hill showed us no love, Vlad looked to the heavens above. Told the agents to stop scheming, To keep on believing, And to start our journey out west. At onset there was resistance from the team. Vlad insisted the west was our dream, Gyms and doormen, renovations and more, The ultimate spot to bring back my whores. After finding a spot on 56th, Vlad tells me our offer doesn''t exist. More scheming he said, But don''t hang your head, We''ll find your pimp palace this week. At conclusion of apartment crisis 2012, We continued our search in the kitchen of hells. One place was all it took, Rather gave it a second look, And we decided to finally settle down. Our long journey had ended, A Bulgarian we friended, And we found a place to call home, But at the end of the day, I wouldn''t have had it any other way, In our triumphant battle of choosing a place to stay. All the time spent doodling, Don''t know who the landlords thought they were fooling, Because we were riding with the best, Vladimir Kulagin.

Vlad, You are the brother I never had. I would take a bullet in the arm Or leg for you. There are less than 3200 wild tigers in the world, and you are one of them. You are welcome at PH9 365 days a year! Love, Alex

Alex Lupica - July 15th, 2012 - 03/04/2014

Vlad, You are a God living among mere mortals. I''d follow you to the gates of Avalon. If I know anyone living in NYC, you are the first and only real estate I''d recommend!

“Vladimir Kulagin was absolutely wonderful! Both my roommate and I were looking to move into the city from other areas. We knew the area we wanted to live in, and the price we were willing to pay, but expected very little in terms of what we would find. Vladimir was in constant contact with us from the beginning of our search and was very assuring that we wouldn''t necessarily have to lower our standards. The very first apartment he showed us was the one we moved into -- the building was way more luxurious than we were expecting and the rent was within our budget! Vladimir was dedicated to helping us settle on this apartment we wanted, and was in constant dialogue with us throughout the application process. He made himself available to us at all hours of the day and night to answer questions and ensure that we were on the right track. His extensive knowledge of the NYC housing market combined with his honest and friendly demeanor made us extremely comfortable and confident that we were settling on the best choice available. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or rent in the city.”

I met Vladimir when looking for an apartment to rent in Manhattan.In our first meeting, Vladimir was extremely prepared and showed us exactly the apartments that met our criteria and budget.We were able to finalize a place at the end of the same day. Vladimir’s professionalism and knowledge of the Manhattan rental/ purchase market is incomparable, which is why I sought his help when I was ready to buy a condo.Once again Vladimir did not disappoint and we were able to finalize a place within days of our search.Both of my experiences with Vladimir have been exceptional and I would recommend his expertise to anyone.

Vladimir is very easy to work with and flexible. He made it his mission to find us the best apartment that fit our criteria. He listened to our needs and wants and it was no wonder that it only took us one day to find an apartment. He was with us until the end answering our every question. My sister and I are not too familiar with NYC or apartment searching and Vladimir was very patient with us, always smiling and making us feel relaxed and comfortable. Even after we signed the lease he was in contact with us making sure our questions were answered and if we needed any help with anything. We would ABSOLUTELY recommend Vladimir because of his knowledge and fun personality! :-) We appreciate everything he did for us and our dream of living in NYC is coming true because of him!

Vladimir was excellent in getting us a great price on our apartment. He was very professional, and he helped us get two months free and free amenities. He also kept in constant contact with us during the process of getting approved and moving in. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment in New York. Thanks again for everything!

Vladimir was hands-down the most pleasant and helpful broker we have ever worked with after living in Manhattan for three years and dealing with many different real estate companies. His patience, thoroughness and great personality all helped to make the inherently difficult process of finding an apartment a lot easier to take. Vladimir listened to our needs and worked hard to find apartments that fit what we were looking for within our budget. We highly recommend Vladimir for all of your residential needs!

Vladimir is an extremely helpful, patient and kind broker. He doesn''t pressure you to look at places you do not want to see, nor does he try to tell you "nothing else is out there" like so many others will. Once he knows that you like he sticks with your desires, and shows you nothing less than Par. Overall, GREAT broker! Thank you!

To Whom It May Concern, My roommates and I contacted Vladimir two months before we were looking to move in. He was more than willing to show us apartments so that we were exposed to as many buildings as possible. We are now moved in and settled and more than happy in our new home. We definitely would not be in the apartment we are in if it was not for Vladimir. He is patient, knows the areas of the city well and will easily work with your schedule. I highly recommend him if you are looking to find a great apartment in NYC! Hope all is well and thanks again for everything!

My roommates and I were looking to move in a short amount of time on a strict budget. Vladimir understood our needs, and in one weekend showed us a variety of wonderful options! He was patient while we explored other options and in the end his apartments wound up being the best! Not only does he know what’s on the market but he really makes his customers feel at ease throughout the entire process. Being in a service industry it was commendable how fast he responded to any questions or concerns I had (usually responding within the hour). Thank you so much Vlad we could not have done this without you and I would certainly recommend you to anyone in need of an apartment! If I ever move you will be the first to hear about it! Sincerely

Lauryn February 18, 2009 - 03/04/2014

We highly recommend Vladimir Kulagin. For about three months, he assisted us in finding a perfect rental apartment. He listened carefully to our priorities, he set up tons of appointments with a wide range of apartments and rental prices according to our (sometimes crazy) schedules, and most importantly, he did not push us in any one direction. He is friendly and a pleasure to work with; he gave input when we asked for it but let us decide for ourselves what would work and what would not. He did not display any annoyance at our pickiness, and he responded promptly to each and every request/question we had. We will certainly recommend Vladimir to all of our friends.

L&D February 11, 2009 - 03/04/2014

Hi Vladimir, You have been very helpful in our search process - Shelby and I understand and really appreciate your input. The Monterey truly gave off great vibes to her, I and both sets of our parents. My mom even liked it after hearing about it on the phone. A lot times, the "right" choice is to give in to how we feel. So, we easily decided that we longer need to "look" after finding a home that speaks to us. Shelby and I have been best friends for over ten years now, so we are very excited to continue our friendship, and we are confident that overtime, our friendly will deepen through this experience. I wish the best on all your future endeavors - we are very firm believers that doing business in a honest, efficient and fair manner is the only way to ensure long-term success no matter what you do. Thanks again!

Vladimir knows New York City very well, which was extremely helpful to someone who is fairly new to the city like me. He showed me only apartments within my price range and really listened to what I was looking for. He also gives his honest opinion if asked. He’s laid-back, friendly and patient despite the somewhat chaotic process of looking for apartments. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an apartment in the city!

Theresa February 04, 2009 - 03/04/2014

To Whom It May Concern, It has been a month since we moved in to our new apartment downtown. This letter is to thank Vladimir Kulagin for his tireless efforts in finding us the right apartment that met all of our expectations and requirements. Vladimir showed me many apartments, and did not give up when none of those quite met our requirements. He was also very professional, very polite, and patient. And, he was also more than willing to show me apartments on the rather tight viewing time frames I gave him! Previous to meeting with Vladimir, I had talked to quite a few Sales associates, none of which tried to help in finding us the right apartment (most didn''t even bother returning phone calls at all). So, I would gladly recommend Vladimir to anyone looking for their perfect apartment. He will help right to the very end.... Regards
