Low key and low pressure, Lowenstein wanted to extend his communication skills to real, live people and sought a departure from the isolation of a sound booth.
"Fortunately in television you learn how to cut yourself short, you realize very quickly that if you only have an hour for a program, you can't talk too much about fluff, which translates exactly for real estate," Lowenstein reflects. "New Yorkers are busy, if you can't get to the point and get lost in idle chatter, you may just lose your client."
During his 13 years at Bellmarc, Lowenstein has become his own toughest boss: he's never felt more freedom in a job, but has also never worked more diligently. He prides himself on his accessibility and speedy response time. As Lowenstein remarked, "If you don't return all of your voicemails or e-mails, it's like kissing your income goodbye. You learn that giving attention to the first-time buyer is just as important as getting back to the person looking to buy a townhouse off the park."
Even more gratifying than sales job superbly executed is Lowenstein's work for the Library of Congress. For the past 30 years, he has recorded Talking Books for blind and physically disabled individuals. Refusing to subscribe to a sales pitch, impressive-sounding jargon, or flashy suits, Lowenstein attracts a wide range of customers. The way he describes the relationships with his clients sounds reminiscent of an old-fashioned love affair: "There is a certain chemistry I feel with my clients, almost like an initial spark," he muses. "We get to know each other, we build trust, loyalty, and eventually you start waking up in the morning with a smile on your face."
But Lowenstein does not only cherish the bonds he forms with buyers and sellers, he also takes the time to become well acquainted with each property he represents. As a longtime resident of Tudor City, the peaceful enclave in the East 40's once dubbed 'New York's Nearest Suburb,' Lowenstein gets excited about pre-wars and homes with some character, some punch.
"I like looking at a property and seeing some potential in it. I don't like cookie-cutter listings; I like to mentally fix up homes and translate that vision for my clients," says Lowenstein, who after selling a personal favorite, admits to experiencing 'broker's remorse.'
He remarks, "It's not only about the big pay out at the closing.
...
"Sure, some neighborhoods may be cast as 'less desirable' by real estate snobs," says Lowenstein. "But for the first-time buyer, sometimes the right price outweighs location or proximity to the nearest health club."
Having raised two daughters in Manhattan , Lowenstein identifies with expanding families who are looking to settle into homes that will grow along with them. Helping parents with school age children navigate the quirky parameters of the best school districts is something that Lowenstein takes seriously. "If a parent isn't comfortable with the school district, he or she is never going to feel comfortable at home."
Is the frenzy of raising a family in the city worth it? "Absolutely," says Lowenstein. "With an endless supply of opportunities and stimuli, Manhattan is the best city to raise children."
So is 'nice guy' Ralph Lowenstein the 'Anti-Broker'? Don't be fooled, the man is persistent. Lowenstein admits to having a very close relationship with his cellular phone. "Friends begin to wonder if it's crazy glued to my ear," he laughs. "But if it gets the deal done, I'd be willing to consider it."
