Lazar was more than accommodating and wonderful to work with during our time with him. He returned our calls, texts, and emails promptly and communication was seamless. Without hesitation we will refer Lazar to anyone we come across that''s in search of a new home. His services are top notch and we couldn''t be more pleased with our apartment!

I''m sorry I don''t have time to write a more formal letter (busy with
work and unpacking, and expecting a child any day now), but I want to
let you know that my wife and I have been very satisfied with our
experience with Lazar and his colleagues at Spire Group, as well as
our time living in your building thus far. Everything went smoothly
and quickly in seeing the place, agreeing to rent it, and moving in.
Lazar and Ivan were helpful and pleasant to work with. We are
enjoying our apartment so far (we have been there for a week and a
half), and are looking forward to our future there.

I was extremely pleased with the service provided by Lazar and Ivan while I was searching my apartment. I have contacted many brokers during my apartment hunting period and I can honestly say Lazar and Ivan were the best brokers by far with their professionalism and dedication. They respond, follow up and well prepared. They are on top of everything to make sure entire process goes smoothly. Without the help provided by Lazar and Ivan, I almost think I am not living in the building right now. So, I''d like to thank again for their help.
I am very happy that now I live in the apartment I really wanted, 45-02 Ditmars Blvd. The building is well maintained and clean. I can usually get any help within reasonable time. I''m pretty happy with the overall environment. I''m sure there is always a room for improvements or alterations, but I''m very happy that I was able to find this apartment.

To Whom It May Concern,
We had the pleasure of working with Ivan and Lazar this summer to find our new apartment in
Pistilli Grand Manor. Ivan showed us several Pistilli rental properties in two separate buildings.
When we decided that we liked Pistilli Grand Manor the best they were able to negotiate us out of
our previous lease (also with Pistilli management) a month early. Once we expressed interest in
the building, it was only a matter of days, less than a week, before we signed the rental
agreement for the new apartment.
The current building, Pistilli Grand Manor, is lovely. The halls and facilities are clean, the
doormen are attentive, and the building link network is informative and useful. The surrounding
neighborhood is also lovely and quiet, with a number of nice, affordable restaurants and
We would certainly use Ivan and Lazar again, and recommend them to friends, as they were
efficient, helpful, and understanding.

We write this letter to affirm that Ivan Mijalkovic and Lazar Ilic have provided exemplary service as representatives of Spire Group. Ivan showed us several apartments on the first day we started hunting for a new place, and his professionalism, courtesy, knowledge, and honesty were certainly factors in our decision to rent an apartment at Pistilli Riverview East. He and Lazar maintained this level of service throughout the rental process, and it is even a pleasure still to occasionally see them in the halls of the building with potential lessees/buyers.
We also attest to the quality of the neighborhood around our address at 19-19 24th Avenue in Astoria. We''ve been quite pleased with the demeanor of the other residents, the calm pace of the avenue, and the ongoing activities and events at the adjacent park.

Searching for a new residence is never an easy feat. Searching for a new home that is wheelchair accessible is even more challenging, but thankfully Lazar Ilic and Ivan Mijalkovic helped me to seamlessly secure a fantastically appropriate space with a layout that perfectly suits my needs, situated amidst a wonderful community.
As early as our first communication, Lazar and Ivan have consistently conveyed a warm, competent and professional demeanor. They have been prompt, punctual, and personable in every interaction I have shared with them thus far. I consider myself fortunate to have made their acquaintance, and would not hesitate to work with them again for my real estate needs. To that end, I would also recommend them to any friends or family looking for honest, reliable and impeccably professional service (as I have already done!)
My level of satisfaction with the new apartment and new neighborhood is quite high. It is a great, accessible and diverse location with fantastic resources and amenities. I am most grateful to Lazar and Ivan for helping me to secure this wonderful apartment amidst a great community!

We are residents at 1919 24th Ave and have worked in the recent past with Lazar Ilic who has helped us find our current residence as well as negotiate with the owners. We are very satisfied at the professionalism as well as the quality of service that Lazar provided. We look forward to working with him in the future.

We looked for an apartment through Ivan and Lazar from Spire Group in June, 2013 and had a very positive experience. Both men were very helpful in the process and provided fast, friendly service. We leased an apartment in Grand Manor, 45-02 Ditmars Blvd, Astoria, and are very happy with it thus far. We would recommend Ivan and Lazar to anyone in the area.

To whom it may concern,
Where to begin and where to end to express my sincere admiration for those two fine gentlemen. I have been living in few different countries in my life and have encountered numerous relocations along the way and I can say full heartedly that the Corporate Relocation Group with Lazar Ilic and Ivan Mijalkovic came above and beyond my expectations and made this whole process very unique and pleasurable.
Their advice and guidance through the process was invaluable. Professionalism, integrity and the human touch is definitely what sets them apart from the puffery and lies that one can encounter looking for an apartment in NYC.
I met them on a business level and we have developed a friendship that will continue for years to come. In the future, I would undoubtedly recommend Lazar and Ivan to anyone looking for success in their real estate transactions.
My home has a new address that is Pistilli Grand Manor at 45-02 Ditmars Boulevard where I have been a very happy camper since January 2013. The building is very clean and very well maintained, the building manager and his staff have been very responsive to all my needs.

My fiancée and I have worked with Lazar Ilic for 3 years now. Over the years he was able to get our places leased, and found the great home that we currently reside in now.Our lives have changed, and Lazar has been there to meet those changes. He actively listens to a client’s wants and needs, and is eager to find a client the best fit for their lifestyle. Recently, we have decided to move to Queens, and he has welcomed that challenge.As our agent, he was able to show us great options for our needs in Astoria, one of which was the old Steinway piano building. He was knowledgeable of the building’s history, and the uniqueness that it brought to that area of Astoria. Lazar is astute to changes in the market, how rentals work in New York City, and has a drive to get it right the first time and every time. He is a great agent to work with, and we know he will always be there to guide us in this high-paced New York City market. We value his opinions and suggestions, and he will definitely be at our side in our future, when we move on to the next big move in our lives.

Lazar helped us find the very apartment of our dreams, and made the whole experience smoother and more pleasant than any real estate encounter in the past 26 years in NY. He is by far the most professional and honest broker we have worked with. He listened carefully to all our hopes and concerns - nothing we asked for was dismissed or ignored. Tremendous human touch, and outstanding focus to get us across the finish line in the quickest and nicest possible way. Cannot recommend him enough, his vast market knowledge and dedication are irreplaceable tools to help with one of the most stressful situations for a New Yorker - a move! It's our sincere hope to be able to use his services exclusively in the future.

Lazar demonstrated unparalleled professionalism and integrity from the initial contact to closing the deal on our apartment. He made what could be a stressful experience of looking for an apartment on a tight schedule a breeze! The communication was excellent, which kept us calm and informed all the way through the process.
The apartment turned out to be EXACTLY what we were looking for. Couldn't ask for more!
