"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

"Being a first time home buyer in Manhattan can be a very scary experience. Edith made us feel comfortable with the process from the get go. She made herself available to us at all times. She helped us avoid costly mistakes. We found the apartment of our dreams, thanks to Edith." - Adam and Helaine

"After only one visit of Manhattan, we bought the apartment through Edith’s service. She is very knowledgeable, efficient and reliable. She provided helpful advice and after-sale service. We are impressed by her high standard of professionalism." - Sandy and Pascal

"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


About Edith
As a top performer at Compass, Edith is a well respected and accomplished broker with energy, integrity, dedication, and extraordinary knowledge that makes her one of the best in the industry. With over $400 million worth of properties sold across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Long Island, the Edith Yang Team was consistently ranked as the top 1.5% of real estate professionals nationwide by The Wall Street Journal and Real Trends.

An experienced real estate investor herself, Edith has a first-hand understanding of today's market challenges. She can walk clients through the real estate process from start to finish with confidence and finesse. Buyers and sellers alike will benefit from Edith's honest and straightforward approach to real estate investment analysis and her creative financial consultation. Living in Manhattan and Long Island since 2000, she skillfully guides buyers through the diverse neighborhoods and the complex world of New York real estate. She recognizes that buying and selling a home are emotional as well as financial transitions in the lives of her clients, and helps by injecting her own seasoned personal and professional judgment to aid in the important decision-making process. Her keen eye for value and exceptional service with integrity has provided Edith with an ongoing stream of repeat and referral business.

Originally from Hong Kong, Edith obtained both her bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Michigan. She is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). Before she started her real estate business, she worked at prominent firms such as Goldman Sachs, Ziff Brothers Investment and PricewaterhouseCoopers. Edith participated in various mergers and acquisitions with transaction values that ranged from $10 million to $1 billion in diverse industries. Her background as a hedge fund analyst and CPA provides her clients in-depth analysis of financials to facilitate confident decision making.

Edith has cultivated a superior ability to interact with and assist buyers and sellers from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds, especially the Asian market. She has worked with a diverse international and local clientele, from individual investors who focus on luxury condominiums to institutional investors looking for commercial and multi-family properties in both New York City and Long Island. Edith's extensive knowledge of Chinese culture and fluency in English, Mandarin and Cantonese has made her invaluable to Chinese clients.

Edith is also one of the leading agents in the new development market. She has played an integral role in seeing a project from its pre-development stage and the strategic planning of sales to the completion of the project. She assists developers to market their projects (such as 30 E 31, The Centrale, Charlie West etc) to international investors. Edith was one of the first agents who brought NY new developments (301 W 53rd Street) to a luxury property show in China in 2014, where she sold numerous units during the roadshow.

Committed to delivering highly personalized service, Edith stays on the cutting edge of technology, seeking solutions from research, market intelligence, and communications to help her guide clients as they navigate the entire process of buying, selling and investing in real estate.

Edith has lived in various neighborhoods throughout Manhattan, including the West Village, Upper West Side and Midtown East. While Edith moved to Manhasset in Long Island a few years ago for her two little boys, the family maintains a pied-a-terre in Midtown East for their weekend escapes. Among her favorite leisure time hobbies are traveling, scuba diving, skiing, and cooking. Edith has a strong passion for New York and the possibilities that its real estate industry holds.
