December 2016 by Jean Marie Pizzini-Miranda , First Time Home Buyer
As a first time home buyer, I thought buying a house would be a nightmare, but Ron Molcho and his team made it a wonderful and fun experience. Ron helped us find the perfect home for us. Thanks!

December 2016 by dyavgos , We wouldn't hesitate to use him as either a buyer or listing broker.
If you''re looking for a professional then Ron is for you. We''ve had excellent experience with him 2 years ago. Very diligent, superbly professional, and incredibly responsive. we would recommend him wholeheartedly. we have not purchased with him, but we wouldn''t hesitate to use him as either a buyer or listing broker.

December 2016 by Elizabeth Delgado , Highly recommended from a friend and lived up to everything they said about him. , Emerson Hill
Ron came highly recommended from a friend and lived up to everything they said about him. We worked with him for approximately ten months. Another realtor might have lost interest in dealing with us. We were particular about what we were looking for, but Ron was patient and very professional. He was responsive to our questions and/or concerns. I was confident that if I asked a question, I would have a response bright an early the next day.

We closed on our new home in February ''13. We are extremely satisfied and would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. He was terrific!!

December 2016 by Zillow User: user0653885 , Trustworthy & Always There
We closed in June 2013. Ron is a great agent. Had an issue with seller with no access to side entrance to the house. Ron said don''t worry that he will take care of it after we closed. Just like he promised, 2 weeks after we closed access to my side entrance. There''s no BS with Ron. He is very trust worthy, always answered my calls, and always had answers to all my questions. I would recommend to all my friends...

December 2016 by saar45b , Purchased a Multi-Family Home
I was Lucky enough to come across Ron when I first started looking for a home in 2008. HIs knowledge and expertise helped me tremendously with purchasing my first home. My mother later on used his services to purchase a rental property and find tenants for her.

December 2016 by Cblackman , We clicked from the very beginning. , Staten Island
My husband and I met Ron at the beginning of our quest for a new home. He was hosting an open house. Throughout the tour of the house, he asked us questions about what we were looking for in a property and assured us that he could find us a home in our price range that would meet our needs. We clicked from the very beginning.

Ron literally showed us every single house we requested to see and suggested many as well. He recognized that we were novices, and he answered our questions and gave great advise on everything associated with the home buying process. When we found a home that we liked, he worked with us to draft an offer that was pleasing to us and the seller. He also recommended a very knowledgeable mortgage broker that specialized in the type of mortgage we were trying to acquire. He remained diligent and accessible while we were in escrow and under contract.

The final result is two happy home owners who absolutely love their new home! I would recommend Ron to family and friends on any given day and over and over. He was great with us.

December 2016 by Zillow User: zuser20150102195738097 , From Open House to Buying a House
My husband and I met Ron at an open house for one of his listings when we first started contemplating the idea of buying a house. We had met other realtors, but after meeting Ron, we knew we wanted him to be our agent. Once we were ready to purchase, I contacted him and he immediately set up an appointment to meet with us. He advised us, but always respected our wishes and never imposed his ideas. We looked at houses twice a week for 2 months until we found our dream home. He got to know us so well that he could immediately tell whether we liked or no a house. We found a beautiful home we fell in love with and Ron made it happen. He's extremely knowledgeable and well known in the industry. Definitely, the right choice for us!!!

Real Estate Experts Predict a Balanced Market for 2019

Ask any real estate expert about the 2018 market and they’ll tell you about the highs and lows: Home prices rocketed during the first half of the year before gradually leveling out, and historically low mortgage rates have recently risen to their highest in almost a decade. But will those trends continue to dominate or disappear in 2019?

“I think 2019 will find us somewhere in between a seller’s and buyer’s market,” noted Ron Molcho, broker and owner with American Homes Group in West Brighton. “An increase in inventory and leveling off of pricing will certainly offer buyers more of a selection. Staten Island is the most affordable borough for homeownership and I believe in 2019 the market will remain steady as long as interest rates stay favorable.”

And 20- and 30-somethings are the target buyer. “Millennials have become the largest buying sector, accounting for 45 percent of mortgages,” Molcho said. “As they are getting older and settling down, they are moving from renters to homeowners. That trend will continue to rise as millennials are likely to make up the largest segment of buyers for the foreseeable future.”It’s a forecast based on trends that are currently dominating the real estate market.“We are seeing more reductions as of late, but some of the reductions can be attributed to homes that were overpriced from the onset,” Molcho continued. “In 2018, we experienced multiple offers and over asking price was not uncommon. That trend seems to have disappeared. Average days on the market – which has increased slightly – coupled with an increase in inventory has contributed to price adjustments, particularity in resales. New construction pricing and sales remain strong.”

All trends that Molcho defines as “common sense.”

“Real estate is cyclical so the rise in inventory – specifically in the last quarter of 2018 – is not surprising,” Molcho concluded.

“I think there will be additional opportunities for many existing homeowners looking to upgrade in 2019, but there is still a dire need for entry-level housing for the first-time buyer.”

Sandy Krueger, president and CEO of the Staten Island Board of Realtors (SIBOR), agrees.

“The market has definitely cooled a little bit – we don’t have people fighting over properties the way we did last year – but at the same rate, prices are going up,” Krueger noted. “Buyers are more particular and more properties are expiring and not selling the first time around because of that factor. But statistically, the market is in an upswing.”

And since prices have dropped slightly and flattened out, Krueger says it’s important for sellers to be more thoughtful about pricing when selling their home.

“If you’re selling your home, you need to be more cognizant of where the market is,” he concluded. “We can’t call it a buyer’s market, but it’s also not a seller’s market either. It’s balanced. And I think it will continue in that direction for most of 2019.”

Published 01/31/2017 - By Realtors and other business people network during the 10th Annual Global Real Estate Summit & Expo,

BROOKLYN/STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Realtors and other business people seeking stronger ties to international commerce were drawn to the 10th Annual Global Real Estate Summit & Expo, held Sept. 15 in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Co-hosted by the Staten Island Board of Realtors® (SIBOR) and the Brooklyn Real Estate Board, this year’s gathering attracted hundreds of attendees to the Dyker Beach Golf Course, where the Summit was held in a borough other than Staten Island for the first time in its 10-year history.

“This event is important not just for Staten Island but for all the boroughs,” said Ron Molcho, a SIBOR director and chairman of the Global Real Estate Summit, during an interview with Spectrum News NY1. “Today our businesses are no longer limited to our locale. We are able to engage with clients across the globe.”

Relocating the Summit to a new venue across the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge was a logical next step in its growth as a prominent business event, said SIBOR CEO Sandy Krueger in advance of the event. “Talking about global real estate requires that we expand horizons beyond our boundaries. “We see this initiative evolving into a citywide program.”

A variety of notable businesses and organizations participated at the Summit, such as: RE/MAX; Douglas Elliman Real Estate; Halstead Property; New York Wheel; Sotheby’s International Realty; Gale International; New York City Economic Development Corp.; NYC Department of City Planning; NYU School of Professional Studies Schack Institute of Real Estate; Wells Fargo Home Mortgage; Citi; Empire State Bank; HSBC Bank USA; Quontic Bank; Triangle Equities; Keller Williams Realty; CBRE; NY1 News, and others.

The daylong event also included the Global Real Estate Summit’s 2016 media partners: The Real Deal; Staten Island Media Group (Staten Island Advance/SILive.com); Star Network, and Brooklyn Home Reporter.

Presenting sponsor of SIBOR’s 10th annual Global Real Estate Summit was InterContinental Capital Group.

Experts at the symposium discussed a range of topics, such as: “Financial Issues in Global Transactions; “Marketing Across Borders: The Developer Connection;” “Paradigm Shift: The Multi-Cultural Millennial Effect;” “The Renaissance of Staten Island’s North Shore,” and “A Broker’s Perspective: Rules of International Engagement.”
