A proud native of Kyiv, Ukraine, Daniella immigrated to the US with her family at the age of 11. Daniella began her professional post college career in the Television industry, working in international content distribution where she worked her way up to the VP of International Sales working with HBO, The Hollywood Reporter and Starz to name a few as her clients, eventually making New York her home in 2002. She holds a bachelor's degree in finance and a master's degree in history from NYU, and speaks five languages. With her natural resilience and strength, combined with the desire to learn and reach new heights professionally, Daniella embodies the drive necessary to succeed, which is exactly what has allowed her to make her American Dream - a reality.
Daniella did an excellent job selling our co-op home near Gramercy. We hired her because she sold another apartment in our building a few years earlier and had gotten a fantastic price for that seller. Once we spoke to her, we realized why she had been so successful on that listing. We spoke with other agents who pandered to us and told us we could get an astronomical price on our apartment. While nice to dream, we knew it wasn’t realistic. Daniella set appropriate expectations on price and established a strategy that worked to perfection to get us several over ask offers within just a couple weeks. She answered every question we had throughout the process with incredible speed. She was knowledgeable, tactical, communicative, and compassionate, yet ruthless when it came to negotiations on our behalf. She was able to get us a great price in a weakening market and we were very satisfied by her results. She is the perfect agent to have on your side and we’d recommend her to anyone needing an effective and experienced real estate agent. Best regards, -Chris Morton
I have worked with Daniella on three apartment transactions – the purchase of one apartment in 2015 and sale of that same apartment in 2019, as well as the purchase of another apartment in 2019. Daniella is extremely professional and knowledgeable about the real estate market in New York City. She is honest and helped me set realistic goals and pricing, but she also worked extremely hard to get me the best deal, all the time working within my timing and financial constraints. I highly recommend her as a real estate broker for any sale or purchase, no matter the size or location of the apartment or . And I am lucky to count her as a friend and someone I respect and like as a person after all of the transactions we worked on together. I am available to answer any questions you may have about working with Daniella. Best regards, -Rachel Sumers
Daniella is a consummate salesperson. She puts the time and effort in to make the best deal happen. Her finger is on the pulse of the market and she definitely knows what works and what doesn't. I wholeheartedly recommend her for selling your apartment. She is relentless. - Hugh Hill
Daniella was a pleasure to work with and took great care in selling my apartment. Her work ethic really made a difference and separated her from the crowd of other brokers out there. She understood the importance of the transaction to my family, and applied her professionalism to get the job done. She has an established relationship with the building, staff and management which helped spearhead the transaction. I highly recommend her to anyone thinking of selling or buying" - Sergey
"Dear Daniella, as I am settling into my new home, I wanted to send a 'Thank you" for your help and guidance in the sale of my apartment few weeks ago. Your knowledge, creativity and professionalism - from your thoughtful strategy for marketing and staging my apartment it to show its potential, to your availability to meet with potential buyers (are you ever not working?) and quickly track down answers to their questions, to your attention to detail during negotiations all the way through closing - has made it a pleasure to partner with you every step of the way. You are the broker I am looking forward to working with again" - Eric
