"Many thanks to you both for selling our apartment so quickly, at a great price, and for handling everything so professionally. I felt very comfortable with our pricing strategy based on your knowledge of the DUMBO
real estate market; and your access to a number of serious, qualified buyers proved to be invaluable. Thanks again for delivering a high level of
service and fantastic results!” –Glen and Mindy H.
"I’ve been fortunate to have Elizabeth Lind Johnson and Karen Lind as my sellers’ and buyers’ agents on multiple occasions over the last several
years. They have demonstrated honesty and integrity as leaders in the
field, and I totally trust their understanding of and experience in the
real estate market.” –Esme W.
"Thank you so much for your help during this year-long process! You have
been a wonderfully professional ally and friend and I could not have asked
for a better person to work on my behalf.” –Kristen B.
"It’s difficult to find a broker who is both trustworthy, has high professional standards and gets results. Elizabeth was very proactive throughout the process, from marketing my apartment beautifully to ensuring she meets as many prospective tenants as possible to find not just any tenant, but a high-quality tenant. The result - she found me an exceptional tenant within the timeframe I needed (not a day extra). She deeply
understands the ins and outs of the NYC real estate market and I would definitely engage her again.” –Karl C.
"We can’t recommend Karen and Elizabeth enough – they took the time and went above and beyond to help us find our first home that we love. They are very knowledgeable about the market and every step in the process of buying a place. They discussed every aspect of the process with us and advised us to move in a certain direction to ensure the closing. They were calm and remained optimistic, which helped us move smoothly along the process. They both are amazing, and they will work hard to get you the place you want to get!"- Tom and Bhrikuti C.
"I have worked with Karen Lind for many years. She has estate apartments for my estate clients and did a fabulous job! She helped ready the apartments for sale and worked tirelessly to find great buyers.
Elizabeth is also a joy to work with. They're the best!” –Joan S. / Menaker
