"Deanne Lorette is an exceptional RE agent with infinite integrity, dedication and patience. We started out ‘not wanting’ to sell our beautiful, top-floor apartment in NYC but then, quickly fell in love with her skill and guidance that ultimately led to a final closing that set a new record for the highest sale price ever achieved in our coveted Upper West Side historic building. You can’t possibly do any better than Deanne for all your RE adventures - plus, you’ll get to work with one of the finest, funniest, fabulous human beings in NYC!"

"I was so lucky to find Deanne when I began my NYC apartment hunt back in 2019. As a first-time buyer in the crazy NYC co-op market, Deanne was an invaluable source of information, guidance, and support through my 2 year (!!!) apartment hunt. She took the time to get to know me and what was important to me in a future home, while also leveraging her experience to identify untapped potential (and potential issues) to ensure that my purchase was one that would work for me long-term. Deanne made sure that I was educated and prepared for every step along the way, and while she was always ready with her professional opinion, she always trusted and respected my judgement as the future homeowner. Deanne was honest, direct, and incredibly detail-oriented throughout the complex co-op approval process, while remaining unfailingly kind and positive. I would whole-heartedly recommend Deanne to anyone looking for a home in NYC." - Emily H. (Upper West Side)

"What I really want to emphasize is the process--Deanne was with us every step of the way, and held our hand through every hurdle. We saw almost 30 apartments with her over 3 or 4 trips out for viewings, and her expertise, honesty, calm demeanor and humor made it as seamless as it could possibly be. I couldn't believe how responsive she was to our questions and needs. It honestly felt like we were her only clients." - Madeleine D. (Hamilton Heights)

"We worked with Deanne and she helped us find a great apartment that met all of our needs. She was incredibly knowledgeable about the market. Deanne answered all our questions, truthfully dealt with all of our concerns, never tried to pressure us into a bad deal or a fit that wasn't right for us, and ultimately we ended up with an apartment we love at a price we also love. I can't recommend anyone better than Deanne." - Audery D. (West Harlem)

"I have already recommended Deanne to other apartment hunters." - Laura. (Hamilton Heights)

"My most recent move came at a very challenging time in my life - work was insane, family emergency and resultant family dynamics gone awry, etc. I worked with Deanne Lorette from the beginning. She was just incredibly human during what can often feel like an inhumane process. I just felt taken care of. Old as I am, mature as I like to consider myself, that really mattered. So, 5 stars and big thanks. " - Jessica R. (Harlem)

"I would highly recommend Kathleen and Deanne to anybody looking to make a real estate transaction in the city. Throughout the entire process of buying and selling an apartment they were incredibly professional, friendly, and responsive. They made sure things stayed smooth and on course. They went above and beyond to make sure every concern was addressed and to make the whole process as stress free as possible. They were incredibly caring and understanding from the second we met, and always maintained a positive, can do attitude. They got us our dream apartment while quickly selling our old place, and somehow made all the timing work out. They are the best! " - Lucas and Emily S. (Hudson Heights)

Deanne has been a guiding light in our search for a home in NYC. We initially started looking in the fall of 2018, but then had to put our apartment hunt on hold for a couple of years and Deanne was completely understanding. It was so nice to reconnect with her in the summer of 2020 when we were looking for a place again and felt like no time had passed. During the pandemic, Deanne went above and beyond to stay on top of listings and attend viewings across multiple boroughs—in person—for us while she FaceTimed us, answering all our questions and giving thorough tours. She made the apartment search simpler than we could have imagined and addressed every question and concern we had. She exceeded our expectations for the experience and her professionalism and warmth does not go unnoticed. We are so appreciative to Deanne for helping us secure our dream apartment and cannot give her enough praise! " - Stevie B. and Nicole C. (Flatbush)
