Ron moved to Argo Real Estate after several years at some of Manhattan’s top brokerages where he came to specialize in selling condos and coops across Manhattan. He also has an affinity for educating and guiding first-time home buyers through the process of their first big purchase.
Ron became involved in real estate after purchasing a three-bedroom fixer-upper in his south Louisiana hometown. After doing much of the labor and interior design himself, he put it back on the market. The experience was thrilling, giving him a new appreciation for not only construction but also design, and sparking his foray into the world of real estate. He hasn’t lost that sense of hard work, dedication, and attention to detail that made his first real estate experience such a success.
A background in graphic and web design have sharpened Ron’s eye, uniquely positioning him as an asset for his clients in finding the home that is most comfortable and striking to them. “Client satisfaction is the number one goal,” he says. “With my designer’s eye, I am uniquely able to assist clients in seeing the potential of any home they walk into.”
He lives with his husband in Hudson Heights, a neighborhood he loves for its quietude and beauty. “You feel like you’ve left the city without leaving Manhattan,” he says. Ron graduated from Northwestern State University with a Bachelor of Arts, and in his free time enjoys cooking and seeing theatre.
|“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Ronald and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. He is extremely knowledgeable about all the facets of New York real estate which is its own special beast. He has a personal and deeply committed approach to each client, going above and beyond at every step to close the deal. He also carries with him a sophistication and charm that I was proud to have representing me, which is especially useful since deals can get delicate. He navigated a complicated sale with me and I’m very pleased with the result. He also helped me find a renter for my apartment and was as excellent in rentals as sales. Thank you Ronald!”
-Krysta Rodriquez, Seller
|“We interviewed 4 agent/agent teams to head up the sale of our apartment and Ron gave us the impression of being calm, organized, knowledgable, easy to work with and tech savvy. After closing on our apartment, I’m happy to report he is all those things, and completely exceeded our expectations. He brought a well-researched point of view to the table, and I felt he really considered the details of our home and represented it well without being overbearing to potential buyers. He was also very open to our wishes in choosing a listing strategy, and didn’t pressure us in anyway. He has all the hustle you want in an agent in the NY market while remaining polished, respectful and extremely easy to work with. His level of responsiveness was also excellent, and though he had several listings at the time I always felt like ours was priority one. The deal went incredibly smoothly, and I think Ron was a huge part of that — highly recommend this agent. We’ve moved out of the city, but I wish we could use him for our next home purchase.”
