Isil's Clients Say it Best

"Isil found me my first home in Manhattan after a very aggressive search. She was confident and professional from Day-1, and she made me feel like her client. Isil was extremely receptive to my feedback and was sensitive to my "wish list items while also providing market knowledge and insightful feedback throughout the search. I would recommend Isil to anyone looking a home in NYC." - Justine & Michael, first-time home buyers who purchased an Upper West Side Coop

"Isil was immensely helpful in our search and saw us through the offer/closing process of our recent successful purchase. She kept the process moving smoothly, but made sure we were getting a good deal. She was aggressive where she needed to be and represented our best interests. We could not be more pleased to have worked with Isil on this purchase and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy." - Eleanor & Sean, buyers of a Park Slope condo

"From our very first , it was clear that Isil really knew what she was doing and had my back. As a first-time buyer, I really didn't know anything about the process, but Isil was very patient with all of my questions and always had everything under control, even when I didn't!" - Jen, first time homebuyer of a co-op on the UWS

"From start to finish, Isil is simply a fantastic real estate broker. As a foreigner in America and having never purchased a home before, Isil was there to guide me through every single step of the process. Isil was very responsive and made herself available to answer all of the questions that I had throughout the process.... We encountered several problems when trying to purchase our first home, and Isil helped us work through each and every one of them. I can truly say that we would not have been able to buy the apartment we are now in (and love) without Isil." - Bek & Jon, Buyers of a Bed-Stuy Condo

"I had a wonderful experience working with Isil and her team selling my home in the East Village. Their work was fast, focused, and thorough. I always felt in the loop and empowered throughout the process. I've recommended her to several friends since, and would do so for anyone looking to have a successful real estate transaction in a competitive market like New York." - Maha, a repeat client who moved from Manhattan to Prospect Lefferts Gardens

"Isil and her team are smart, hard-working, and a pleasure to work with. Isil provided us with a great market analysis to help us decide whether to or sell our Brooklyn loft. After we decided to sell, she and Isabel worked tirelessly to get out apartment ready listing and find the right buyer. We can’t wait to work with Isil and her team again!" - Sellers of a Brooklyn loft

"Isil has a deep & broad knowledge of the housing market here in New York. She is savvy, incredibly reliable and dedicated, and took care of all the ins and outs of our apartment sale: from the major aspects, like having and implementing an aesthetic vision the space -- suggesting paint colors, rearranging our furniture, even staging it with contemporary decor of their own -- and marketing the heck out of it, to the minor coordination and scheduling details. We trust them both implicitly and always felt we (and our apartment) were in great, professional hands." - Amanda & Jason, sellers of a two-bedroom Murray Hill co-op

"Isil and her team helped us with what would have been a rather stressful and difficult sale had it not been her help. She guided us from start to finish with the listing process and was very dedicated and professional, and had amazing finishing touches the apartment and the listing. She also handled a lot of the behind the scenes wrangling us and had contacts with all the other necessary players in the process. All in all a 10/10 A+ experience with an outstanding and excellent broker." - Jorge, seller of a co-op in Chelsea

"We had a wonderful experience working with Isil. She is very knowledgeable and always accessible to her client. She kept us informed throughout the whole process. We have done a few real estate transactions and worked with a number of real estate agents. Isil is by far one the best agents we have ever worked with. We are looking forward to working with her in our next real estate endeavor. Thanks Isil!" - Qiao, seller of a Morningside Heights condop

"I've worked with Isil on a number of real estate transactions. Our first time working together was a complicated transaction involving the rental and subsequent sale of my apartment. We received an excellent price very quickly. Isil is meticulously thorough, professional, and detail-oriented, as well as sensitive to the needs of all parties involved. We're currently working together again on the purchase of my next apartment." - Ed, a repeat client
