Hello, nice to meet you. I am Mukul Lalchandani, the founder of The Modern Agent. I specialize in modern condominium sales and leasing in New York City. As your agent it is not my intention to just sell you a piece of property but also provide you with a sound investment opportunity, all along making sure your experience is fulfilling.


    Mukul was raised in Hong Kong in a family of real estate investors. His international upbringing has instilled in him a cultural sensitivity towards client relations that rises above normal transactional relationship. After a disappointing experience with New York City brokers he decided it was time to create the change the industry so desperately needed.

    Since then Mukul has spent his time fostering relationships and selling the top modern condos NYC has to offer. He was Top Sales Agent in 2012 & 2013 and awarded Best Real Estate Agency Marketing USA 2012-2013 by the International Property Awards. Mukul also appeared as the hosting agent of the popular HGTV show “House Hunters.” 

    With a background in design, Mukul has a keen eye for quality construction and details. He continually looks to the future to be at the forefront of trends in the marketplace which he then applies to a highly curated collection of properties. Mukul has also completed LEED certification courses, making him an expert in green buildings and sustainable living.

    In 2014, Mukul launched two new divisions of The Modern Agent: Edit Modern, the company's investment branch; and Modern Agent Studio, a marketing firm focused on supplies for real estate agents and brokerages. Mukul has a Bachelor's in Business Administration from Boston University, is an expert negotiator, and is passionate about using technology to advance the industry.

    Mukul was recommended by a friend of mine. Mukul is an excellent agent. He helped supervise my renovation of my apartment and sold it as well. He is very trustworthy and has your best interest when looking for any real estate items. I am so glad I met Mukul, and now if I have any friends looking for apartments in NYC, I know who to point them to. Highly recommend Mukul, You will not regret it!

    I was lucky enough to find Mukul randomly and have nothing but praise for him. I am a property owner and the clientele that Mukul attracts have been perfect. I live away from the property I own in NY and I feel completely safe with giving Mukul full access as well as the renter's he recommends. I will continue to use Mukul for future endeavors both as a renter and an owner. His professionalism far exceeded my expectations and his fine notice to details is superb. I believe the highest compliment to someone is to recommend that person to a close friend or family member. I would recommend Mukul to all my family and friends looking in the NY area. I expect Mukul to grow into a large enterprise, so use his expertise while the time is right. Thanks.

    I think a key benefit of working with Mukul is that he has a keen business sense and can provide valuable advice when considering real estate from an investment perspective. Mukul is an extremely reliable and trustworthy individual that has a strong understanding of Manhattan real estate who takes a strong interest in making sure his clients are happy!

    Due to the fact that I am not only a foreigner but a lot of funding came as foreign investment, Mukul's guidance and professional network allowed me to successfully navigate the hurdles of the real estate industry.
