"We spent a year looking for a new home for our growing family and finally realized our dream home thanks to Edith! Not only did Edith help us purchase a beautiful home but she also sold our former condo residence all within the same month! She understands the housing market and has great insight on how to purchase/sell a home successfully especially in a market with aggressive buyers and sellers. Edith has a warm personality and the ability to listen to all our needs and concerns throughout the process, which alleviated a lot of stress. We know if you decide to use Edith as your agent, you would truly appreciate her diligence, honesty, and commitment." - Clinton and Lorna
"Edith Yang helped my husband and I find our first home. We are first time home owners and in New York City, no less. We knew nothing about the process, and she was very patient and informative as she helped us along the way. Edith was readily available to us throughout the process. Real estate is Edith's second career. She brings her business acumen from her past career in accounting. Edith is smart and diligent. She is responsive, responsible, efficient, and well-organized. Edith also had great resources and contacts (lawyers, bank contacts) for us along the way. We got the best interest rate of anyone we know using her contacts and no mortgage brokers. Edith is ambitious and proactive, but most importantly she is trustworthy and puts her clients needs and wishes first. She always listened to us and did overall a fantastic job." - Sansan and Brad

"Edith helped me find a great apartment that had all the things on our list, and more importantly, that was a good value. It's also a place that is great right now and a place that we can grow into. Edith's strong financial and analytical background is an amazing asset when looking for a place that you'll love, and her tenacity and knowledge of the market makes sure you actually get that perfect place." - Wayne
