“Amazing broker to work with. Patient, knowledgeable,
responsive, what more can you ask for. She took the time to
listen, addressed my concerns and provided valuable information
as to how to prepare my apartment for sale. I highly recommend
Donna without any hesitation!”
I decided on a whim that I wanted to move out of my apartment and find a new place nearby. I had envisioned the new place and was really not interested in seeing 15-30 new places before I found the right one. I know it takes time but when you have the right broker (Steve) who understands your needs, wants and budget - you can get the perfect place! Steve was extremely professional as well as upfront about all fees and paperwork that would need to be submitted. Steve helped me find my new apartment and find someone to take over my current apartment. I couldn''t have been happier with the outcome. That''s a rare statement when you''re talking about NYC real estate...
Naoko found a great, qualified tenant for my co-op sublet in 7 days! I needed to have a signed lease and deposit in place before securing my next home and my timeframe was very limited. I had tried to list the apartment myself as a “for rent by owner” but it was not generating the interest I needed to confidently secure a lease in time. I needed to have a professional pull out all the stops to make this happen as peak-rental season was coming to an end.
I reached out to Naoko, who was my former co-worker, and she came to my apartment to assess it the very next day. At our initial meeting, she presented me with market comparables in the neighborhood and recommended a strategic marketing plan and appropriate pricing.
She explained to me how listing the apartment on variety of realtor market places will drive traffic to open houses and appointments for private showings.
During the course of listing process, Naoko skillfully managed a number of open houses and private showings, staying late and even travelling in a downpour for the inevitable no-shows. She regularly communicated any potential interest and followed up with any and all prospects to ensure no stone was left unturned. Then in about a week’s time a very suitable tenant was secured. And that’s when I think the real work began as my apartment is a classic NYC co-op with the typical (and often bureaucratic) co-op board.
She hand-held the tenants through the board application process, which was just as thorough for a rental as for a sale. Whereas securing the tenants took a week, managing the application process took an additional three and she regularly communicated between me, the tenants and the board. She was on the job right up until move-in day when she handed the keys over to the tenants.
I would highly recommend Naoko for any and all of your New York City real estate needs. I trust her work ethic, market expertise, professionalism and persistence in reaching your goal.
Thank you Naoko! You were a lifesaver!!
“I cannot thank Anthony enough for his work. Prior to working with Anthony, my girlfriend and I had some pretty miserable experiences with realtors. Working with Anthony was vastly different; truly, it was profoundly refreshing to work with someone as helpful, professional, and down-to-earth as him”
