Working with Earl Bateman to find an art gallery space in Chelsea was the best real estate experience I have had in NYC and I have had many.

Not only is Earl the nicest real estate broker I ever met he has also been a part of the NYC art world for a long time and his knowledge is a huge advantage.  He keeps up with all of its events and news.

So looking for a space becomes part of a much larger picture which is extremely helpful when making a choice.  And despite the fact that Earl knows every single building in all of Manhattan that is appropriate for art in any way he was great at narrowing our viewing to the parameters we set. We got a great space and made a good friend.

I worked with Earl on finding a new space on the LES after I moved the gallery out of Chelsea. It was a pleasure working with him from start to finish. Earl is such an unbelievably thorough and meticulous agent that you know that he has left no stone unturned in his quest to find you a new space. It was wonderful to feel so well taken care of.

Earl Bateman is responsible for placing me in my gallery and is a great guy. If you are looking for someone to help locate a gallery, anywhere in the city, Earl is your man.

Thank you so much for all of your guidance, advice, kindness and support through the difficult process of finding a space for my young gallery. You were truly the most supportive person throughout this process other than my husband. I will recommend you to the world.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more knowledgable broker for the New York gallery world or a better advocate in negotiating the deep waters of the New York commercial real estate market. Earl Bateman is a complete pro.

Mr. Bateman has an amazing and extensive knowledge of the gallery history of New York City and the surrounding Burroughs. He also follows current market trends and geographical and demographic shifts. Mr. Bateman is also extremely informed about exhibition programming and the appropriateness to various city locations. He truly cares about art.

I have found Earl Bateman to be kind, considerate and incredibly supportive. I believe anyone fortunate enough to work with him professionally will find him of the highest integrity and a tremendous client advocate.
