Valentini Exhakoustos, Artist and Poet.

When my brother Santos got sick he told me: to sell the house call Manuel Vargas and only Manuel .

Santos had built our family home in Astoria with his own hands and he was very proud of it. When I called Manuel, ten years after he had met with my brother, I told him my last name and he knew who he was talking to … We had a lot of interest from many buyers and brokers when Manuel started offering the house to the market. Some brokers said we would never get more than $1,000,000. At the end it was Manuel who sold it to the president of the NYS association of Architects for
$1,200,000. He found the right buyer.
