I had tried several other NYC real estate agents with little success before a friend referred me to Galina. The first thing I noticed about Galina was how patient and committed she was to finding me a great apartment. There were times during the search where I could have been persuaded to take an okay apartment at an okay price, but Galina insisted that we keep looking. I am so glad we did as I ended up with a great apartment at a great price.
Galina is also tremendously resourceful. She used her connections to show me the apartment that I ended up taking before it was listed, and also somehow negotiated a reduction in the price. Her commitment continued even after I had moved in and paid the broker fee as she negotiated repairs and furnishings at no additional charge. Honest, patient and committed, Galina has earned my highest recommendation.
