    ★★★★★
    Angela Retelny and her team are simply Best in Class. Having 20 plus years of luxury residential brokerage experience myself, I knew many agents to consider when selling my home in the Fox Meadow section of Scarsdale. We owned a very special home and wanted not only one of the most accomplished agents in the area but we wanted a great human being. We got both with Angela! Angela is a superstar. In a very challenging market, Angela and her team thrive. Her commitment, insights, invaluable suggestions and quality to attention when marketing her properties are a talent you cannot teach. Not surprising we found another spectacular home we loved down the street and Angela happened to be the broker on that listing as well. Another great experience! We are so grateful to have had the experience of working with such a talented, hard-working, honest, friendly and kind human being. Selling real estate is more than just about making sales. It’s no wonder Angela and her team are one of Westchester’s top brokers. There is no one else I would rather recommend or want to work with again. - Austin, Sabina & Hayden Schuster, Scarsdale, New York

    ★★★★★
    Angela Retelny is a unique individual who exceeds the highest standards for absolutely everything. Her character and remarkable skill-set bring a whole new dimension to this field. She is knowledgeable, experienced, attentive, and an outstanding communicator. Angela sold my parents' home, and has helped us with 2 rental properties (including a renovation where she basically ran the entire process), and going way beyond the call of duty in every possible way. - Dr. Julia Wong, Dana Farber Cancer Institute

    ★★★★★
    Angela is an outstanding agent. She is thorough, efficient and does an incredible amount of homework so the buyer/seller is well represented. At no time does she pressure you but you always feel she is moving the process forward. - Michael Kay, The Michael Kay Show

    ★★★★★
    We have known Angela Retelny since 2012 when she sold us our first house in Scarsdale. We were competing against 12 other buyers in multiple bids for the house bought. With Angela's guidance and understanding of the market, we successfully placed the winning bid to close the deal under very competitive circumstances. Since 2012, we have worked closely with Angela on five successful transactions. In 2017, Angela sold us our current home and also sold our smaller home in less than a week with multiple offers and competing bids. In 2018, she helped us sell our Fox Meadow property after only 11 days on the market. We have been very pleased with Angela Retelny's performance as our real estate agent in Scarsdale and have always felt that she works tirelessly to represent our best interest to achieve the results we are after. - Shirly Friedman, 4-Time Client, Scarsdale

    ★★★★★
    Having moved to four different countries in the last 10 years, I was particularly concerned with navigating the real estate market in America, especially a competitive market like Scarsdale. A friend strongly recommended Angela, and she made my whole relocation process much smoother. Angela’s knowledge of the market together with her honest insights and tireless work made all the difference. She soon understood what kind of property we were looking for, and strived to find a perfect match for us. After we bought our house, Angela provided information and recommendations on services, contractors and everything else I needed. Until today I count on her network whenever the need arises. We were very fortunate to work with Angela Retelny and will definitely work with her again and recommend her to everyone. - Beatriz & Edinardo Figueiredo, Scarsdale

    ★★★★★
    Angela Retelny is a real estate agent extraordinaire. She ensured that we got the optimal price for our house when we sold while simultaneously helped us negotiate the best purchase price for our new home. She negotiated intelligently, offered insightful advice on complex issues, was always reachable and is truly caring. I have enthusiastically recommended her to anyone thinking of selling or buying a property. - Michelle Lichtenberg, Scarsdale
