Whether you are purchasing or selling, our personalized approach provides guidance from start to finish. It is up to the client to decide the level of involvement in the process. Our experienced agents are perfectly capable of taking over at any stage of the transaction.
In addition to acting as a traditional real estate brokerage, Ostrov provides various complex services, including:
Review of clients’ business structure as it relates to real estate acquisitions.
Selection of the type of entity, which would acquire the property in order to maximize financial and tax benefits and minimize expenses. Ostrov will utilize the services of top attorneys, accountants and other professionals in the process.
If a particular project involves development rather than mere acquisition, we manage such projects every step of the way while working with highly qualified and experienced legal, engineering and tax professionals, and such other experts as the project may demand.
Ostrov has strong relations with top professionals all over the world and has experience purchasing properties in London, Paris, South of France, Spain and Israel.
We provide high quality management services ensuring that all bills are paid on time, all repairs and maintenance work is complete and all insurance policies are in place. If our client wishes to rent their property, we will provide marketing services and choose the most profitable and suitable tenant. Should our client decide to renovate or develop, we would assist by using our relations with local contractors, high-end architects and designers.

- Educational guidance (school selection, application process, scheduling interviews, etc.);
- Medical referrals;
