‘Home Sweet Home Reno’ with Two Modern Spaces Agents!

Aug 2, 2019

Astoria agents, Dimitrios Koufakos and Alex Giannikas, went above and beyond their role as buyers agent, and led their clients on a renovation journey. Their clients were first time home buyers and were drawn to an established Co-op building in Astoria, called Astoria Lights.

While they loved the pre-war apartment, it was in desperate need of updates and a new style. While some brokers might decide this was too big an endeavor, Dimitri and Alex rolled their sleeves up and offered guidance and vision to turn this run down 2BR into the home of their dreams.

Together, they assisted them through the process of a complete renovation in a co-op building, which went surprisingly smoothly!


Posted below are after pictures of the apartment. As you can see, it was a true transformation!

I also sat down and asked Alex and Dimitri about their experience, as well as their input on what to consider when buying and renovating an apartment. If you are looking for a home and have an adventurous spirit, you should consider working with these Astoria agents, who are committed to the process from start to beyond the finish!

Renovating an apartment is more than just an opportunity – It’s your chance to make an apartment home. Besides bringing tremendous upside and value to the home, you see the house of your dreams become reality. From choosing floors, tile, and fixtures, the whole process is inspired by you and your taste and where you envisioned living.

Having the right professionals by your side that can help put together your vision literally and figuratively. FOS construction did just that on this project and the home owners could not be happier with the final product.

When it comes to renovating a coop it is paramount to know your market down to the price per square foot. with the right research and broker by your side there are diamonds in the rough all over Astoria & LIC.

Dimtrios Kaufakos:
Besides raising immense value in your new home, it is said that your mood is defined by the ambiance in which you live. We all want to live in a home that is comfortable and meets our needs. The renovation alone will make your living space more comfortable, aesthetically attractive, and ensures your tastes are reflected.

Having the right brokers and contractors to guide you with transforming an old space into the home of your dreams is exactly what me, Alex, and FOS construction did.

When looking to purchase a co-op it is important to know what the building has to offer such as amenities, recent sales, and most importantly price per square foot. **Having an experienced broker with a keen eye for detail will be able to land you a true diamond in the market at a price point that you will be happy with.
