You might say that Jacques Ambron has real estate running through his veins. The son of Madeleine Ambron, one of the most respected and successful agents in Forest Hills, Jacques has followed in a tradition of excellence and integrity. He started his real estate career in lower Manhattan selling co-ops in the early days of co-op conversions. He then moved his focus to Forest Hills where he continued his sales career selling co-ops and homes in exclusive Forest Hills Gardens, Forest Hills, Rego Park, Kew Gardens and surrounding areas. He was also a very successful rental agent for many major landlords. Jacques continued to expand his knowledge and experience as the sales director for a major New York City co-op/condo conversion firm, where he oversaw the conversion of thousands of units around New York City and Westchester. Finally, Jacques ran Madeleine Realty, one of the top independent firms in Forest Hills as broker/owner, where he not only oversaw daily operations of the office and its agents, but successfully sold hundreds of co-ops, condos and houses over the course of 25 years. In July 2017, Madeleine Realty joined forces with Halstead in order to increase marketing strength and to better serve its clients. Subsequently Halstead merged with it’s sister company Brown Harris Stevens to form one of the most powerful brokerages in the tristate area in order to bring his clients the highest level of service and marketing.
Jacques’s reputation and philosophy is that of professionalism, integrity, and excellence. Above all, he believes that it is his job not only to listen, but to fulfill his clients’ real estate needs while providing a comfortable and happy experience. Jacques has gained extensive knowledge of Real Estate through his professional designations including Certified Real Estate Broker Manager, Seniors Real Estate Specialist, and Certified Buyers Representative.
In his spare time, Jacques is an avid cook, rides bicycles, and spends time with his Wife and young daughter. Jacques is also passionate about giving back to the community. He served as an auxiliary police officer until he retired as a sergeant with several commendations, and currently takes part in charity rides to support people living with MS, and initiatives to help a local community support group called Forestdale.
