Thomas Demsker, Managing Director
Arif - 261 West 28th Street #4A
Navigating Manhattan real estate can be an overwhelming process. However, Tom Demsker brings a level of integrity and experience that I rarely see in other brokers. You can always expect honesty and sound advice from Tom regardless of the situation. The caliber of service Demsker Realty provides in unlike any of the other larger brokers in Manhattan. There is a big misconception out there that the larger brokers with extensive marketing machines will provide a better level of service which can’t be further from the truth. Demsker Realty is head and shoulders above any other broker in the city.

If the recent changes in housing market taught us one thing, there is always a flight to quality… Not just the quality of your home, but also the quality of your agent. Tom is meticulous, hard working, strategic, and honest. He executed flawlessly for us, and was on our side every step of the way.”

We chose Thomas Demsker to handle the sale of our apartment after meeting with several other brokers. Immediately it was clear that Thomas was the only and best choice - he is straightforward, honest and gave us great advice. Thomas is incredibly responsive and experienced, and made us feel as if our apartment was his only priority. He always replied to our admittedly numerous questions immediately. And, most importantly, he delivers - he got us a wonderful result and navigated a complicated closing process for us, taking all the stress and frustration off of our hands. We will recommend Thomas to anyone and every one who is looking for a broker.

For personal service, attention to detail, warmth and caring, Tom Demsker can't be beat. Add to that his keen knowledge of the real estate market place, excellent advice and boundless energy, and he is an ideal broker. I feel very fortunate that I was represented by him instead of one of the giant agencies. After listing we received two offers in about 30 days and closed 60 days after going to contract. Sweet."

Mr. Demsker made it so easy for me as a client, I didn't have to worry about anything. He was very trust worthy of handling all aspects of my transition. I am looking forward to having him find me a new apartment in the near future.

Demsker Realty throughout a tricky transaction consistently provided sound, stable advice that facilitated a strong, profitable transaction once the deal was completed. I am not sure, the deal would have gotten done if I was represented by any other broker.

"Thomas is a wonderkin, clever, creative, honest and a super positive, go getter. You can absolutely trust him to take the best care of you. He will go many extra miles to move your space. He's a hip and savvy marketer. If your apartment situation is unique as ours was, he will know how best to position it and where to advertise to find the right person for it."
Fred Berger – seller 300 East 55th –The Milan
“I had interviewed three other brokers prior to our agreement. Fortunately my instincts lead me to go with you. Your professionalism and knowledge of the industry allowed you to maximize the selling price. You were relentless in achieving my goals. The hard work and class which were displayed were impeccable. I recommend your service highly to any seller.”
Jonathan Moss Tucker - 184 Thompson
with an intimate knowledge of new york city real estate, a keen eye for value, and a low-pressure demeanor, you might mistake his diligence for that of a respectable doctor. this isn't a back-up job, or a fall-back plan: demsker loves real estate. oh, and, he makes other agents look like card sharks and car salesmen.
Sujay Banerjee - 200 East 32nd Street
As a seller of this unit, I had a great experience with Tom !! He was professional,direct, set reasonable expectations, and always kept me updated throughout the selling process. He had this unique ability to proactively get documentation from management even before a deal was in place. Not too many brokers would go this route :) All in all a phenomenal experience. He's highly recommended !!

I was an out of state pied-a-terre buyer and Tom helped me find my perfect location with a great view in the West Village. He led me through the complicated co-op application process and was always professional, polite and helpful. I strongly recommend Tom Demsker for your property search in Manhattan.

Major League Baseball "Tom is one of those rare combinations (particularly in the NYC real estate market) of integrity, untiring energy, and impeccable market-knowledge. We never once felt pressured, and always knew that Tom would have the answers for us at any given moment. He made what could have been an incredibly stressful experience (purchasing our first home), a pleasure."

“Thomas Demskr had been not only lots of fun to work with but he sold my place within a week. I couldn’t believe it. He was very efficient and wonderful to work with and also non stop communicado. I was wondering when that poor guy is sleeping or resting.”
John Ray – Google
“Tom Demsker was a professional in every respect of the word for the 8 Months that we worked together. He was persistent in showing me what I wanted in my price range, but never inflicted his opinions on me in a forceful manner. Working with Tom was a breath of fresh air after dealing with many previous brokers. He is fair, patient and honest with his clients. I would highly recommend him to any buyer or seller whether they are looking for a studio apartment or a spacious Tribeca loft.”
