"Lindsay knows how to get the job done! She is truly a full service premium broker, from studying the market, to recommending the best asking price, to staging the apartment, to producing offers, to negotiating with the lead buyer and to closing smoothly and successfully. Most brokers outsource the staging work to third parties, but Lindsay amazingly does it all with a great eye for what buyers like. Not only was Lindsay able to get my apartment listed quickly and efficiently, I accepted an attractive offer within two weeks during a challenging market environment. I highly recommend working with Lindsay for your real estate needs. She is a joy to work with!" -Philip T., Seller
"This is the second review I've written for Lindsay because this is the second time I've employed her as my real estate broker—this time as a buyer, the first as a seller. I've now been on both sides of the table and seen how Lindsay works tirelessly on behalf of her clients whether buyer or seller. For weeks, she diligently stocked a pipeline of options thoroughly outlining the pros and cons of each. Together we reviewed scores of listings until we found just the right fit. Lindsay is extremely good at delivering honest, balanced, and insightful perspectives on a property, never missing a detail. Her years of experience show. She's a skilled communicator, forward-looking thinker, and solid negotiator. She was indispensable in helping me prepare my board package and for the interview, foreseeing potential roadblocks and questions the board might have, and addressing them preemptively so as not to delay the review process a single second. On top of her professional abilities, Lindsay's affable nature and delightful manner make her a pleasure to work with and are a source of comfort during a complex process" -Alex S., Seller
"As first-time buyers we were extremely lucky to find Lindsay. We had a firm moving deadline, no experience and had just been ghosted by our previous broker. She was patient and focused on the things that truly mattered to our family. At a time when the real estate market was out of control, Lindsay guided us through the clutter and found us the perfect place...on the first appointment! Our first offer was accepted immediately, and due to Lindsay's experience, we closed before our lease ended." -Janelle B. Buyer.
"Lindsay was our tireless champion as we navigated the real estate market in NYC as first-time buyers. Her taste, thoughtfulness, advocacy, advice, and patience were such a boon to our process. We didn't know exactly what we wanted at first, but Lindsay helped guide us to our perfect home. Would highly recommend anyone working with her!" -Teddy B. and Anna B., Buyers
"Lindsay is hands down the absolute BEST agent we've ever had. She delivered value even before we signed the formal contract to work with her. We had our introductory meeting with her on Sunday, right after which she reached out to her network and found us a motivated buyer right away. We were in contract to sell our place and buy the next place all within two weeks! And to top it all off, she does everything with sincerity, warmth and a genuine care for her clients." -Peter B.
"Lindsay sold our apartment in a short time despite the tough conditions which COVID has created for everyone. She is an absolute joy to work with and makes the whole process feel like a breeze. Lindsay guided me every step of the way and quickly responded to every question. Her insight when staging the apartment was exceptional. She transformed our home with more than 10 years of clutter and made it modern, spacious and inviting. She’s an outstanding broker and effectively balances professionalism with warmth. I wholeheartedly recommend Lindsay to anyone selling or buying a home." -Alexandra D.
"Simply put, Lindsay Owen is the best real estate professional in New York City. She is meticulous, highly responsive, and affable every step of the way. She went above and beyond to get the word out about my apartment, securing a coveted placement in a popular publication, and using her own resources to stage the space so it looked stellar. Her intuition is spot-on with a keen eye for what buyers want while balancing the seller's needs. She is forthright in delivering feedback, always maintaining a patient, pleasant disposition. One cannot say enough positive things about Ms. Owen, as evidenced by the other testimonials here–she is nothing short of superlative. " -Alex S.
"Our apartment might not have been sold at all (at warp speed and in a non-peak season) last month were it not for the talents, skills, high octane energy and persistence of our intrepid listing broker, Lindsay Owen. I can state without equivocation that should you be planning a move, or even considering the possibility of selling your apartment, you would do well to reach out to Lindsay. You won’t regret it." -Harold S.
"Meeting Lindsay was like discovering a treasure in the world of New York real estate. She helped my husband and me find our unique dream home — the neighborhood, the finishes, all of it. Lindsay is an absolute best-in-class professional who is smart, responsive, and deeply knowledgeable about the market. At the same time, she made buying a home personal and fun — from strategizing our offer to finding trusted lawyers to navigating our move in the middle of a pandemic. We never doubted that we were in the best hands with Lindsay, and we can’t recommend her highly enough." -Mary R.
"Working with Lindsay was an absolute joy. We counted on her every step of the way and she never let us down. She was always available for us. Terribly honest when needed and consistently willing to go that extra step to make her clients happy. As we live in France, Lindsay was often our eyes and ears. She played this role with enthusiasm, discernment and professionalism. We always knew that she was on our side. When it comes to real estate agents, one often thinks of some not very flattering personality traits -- brash, not always forthcoming (or even dishonest), only interested in making their commission. Rest assured that with Lindsay, your experience will be the exactly opposite!" -Dana P.
"For anyone who is considering selling their unit I’d like to recommend Lindsay Owen. I just closed on my one bedroom today and couldn’t have done it without Lindsay! She is amazing to work with. She listens to your needs and opinions and offers her expert advice. She's also responds quickly and provides transparent communication. You definitely want her representing your interests and delivering the results you're looking to achieve. I can’t recommend her enough!" -Jennifer S.
"Lindsay assisted us in finding our dream home just a few blocks of here within a week of beginning to look - she helped us negotiate an offer and helped us anticipate the counter offer - she was 100% correct on every point. Lindsay was spot on about the approach and price point for selling out current condo here. We had an accepted offer within 10 days on the market at ask for an all cash bid. If you are thinking of buying and/or selling, we highly recommend her!" -Lindsey C.
"While house hunting, We could not have asked for a better partner/guide/guru than Lindsay. As first time buyers who went through some ups and downs in the whole process, she kept us calm, positive and focused, and we ended up in our dream house. Lovely, kind, and considerate, not only did Lindsay make our house dreams come true, but she also found an extraordinary team for us to work with. Her recommendation on a mortgage lender was spot-on (we got an incredible deal), the lawyers she suggested were also wonderful and super-responsive. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Lindsay!" -Sasha A.
"As a first time home buyer and an expat, I was a little nervous (to say the least) about the house-buying process in New York, and the BEST DECISION I made (other than the house we bought, obviously...) was to engage Lindsay as our broker. Throughout the 8 months that it took to find our home and close the deal, Lindsay was unfailingly energetic, encouraging, hilarious and - above all else - HONEST. As Lindsay says, what's for you won't go by you. If you are looking to buy or sell real estate in Brooklyn, don't let Lindsay go by you!" -Cathy R.
"We feel very fortunate that we had Lindsay as our agent when we decided to buy our apartment. Her experience, professionalism, common sense, and not the least her ability to reassure and support us through the sometimes stressful process of home buying were remarkable. She was responsive to our requests, resourceful and organized. We also loved that she is such a warm and open person. She is a top real estate agent and I can't recommend her more enthusiastically." -Val C.
"Lindsay was a fantastic problem solver and was able to help us and save us money every step of the way. From working on the offer that was the most likely to get the buyer's attention while still giving us room to negotiate, to dealing with the onerous month long process that co-op approval turned out to be, it was a pleasure and a privilege working with Lindsay. She's a joy to be around. Buying a new home is such big deal and the decision is such a personal one that I can't imagine working with someone you don't trust, or someone who is trying to talk you into something you're not sure of. She's a great listener and works hard at figuring out what you want, so she can help you get it. I miss having an excuse to be in frequent contact with her. Thank you, Lindsay! We love our new apartment!" -Majo T.
"Lindsay navigated us through the process of renting out our long-time family house in Brooklyn and moving to a beautiful new apartment in Manhattan. She was a terrific advisor throughout, from encouraging us to declutter, taking fantastic photos (that made us reconsider our decision to move), and ultimately finding us a great family as tenants - within three weeks of putting the house on the market. On the other end, Lindsay helped us through the demands of the co-op application, making sure our documents were all in order for a successful outcome. You will be in highly professional, trustworthy and caring hands if you choose to work with Lindsay." -Julia B.
"Lindsay helped guide us from a broad wish list for our new home within an ambitious timeline. She gave great practical guidance, even if it wasn't always what we hoped to hear. As first time NYC buyers we looked at a lot of places and had many questions and Lindsay was always available, incredibly patient and was impressively flexible - she met us at an open house with 20 minutes notice! She is well connected in the real estate community and in related fields and we tapped into her network of inspectors, attorneys, contractors and more. We're so glad we worked with Lindsay and have already recommended her to several friends." -Julia P.
"Lindsay has set the bar so high for any real estate agent that I cannot imagine anyone else coming close. She’s the best!" -Melissa K.

"Lindsay is without a doubt the most professional broker I have dealt with in my 16 years of living, as a renter and homeowner, in New York City. Do yourself a favor and hire her." -Diallo P.
“Working with Lindsay could not have been a more wonderful experience. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, got us a great deal (quickly!) and was able to deftly work around any challenges on the way. Lindsay was professional, incredibly responsive, and answered every last question we had, with patience, knowledge, and a very welcome dose of humor. And now that she’s sold our place, we’ll definitely be working with her to buy our next one.”" -Larry W.
"“I can recommend Lindsay with enthusiasm: she is professional, dedicated, and knows the market well. In addition, she’s simply a pleasure to be with! She has a great sense of humor in addition to her real estate smarts, and she’s helped me learn so much about this crazy NYC market. We should all be so fortunate to work with Lindsay!”" - Cynthia L
"“Lindsay Owen turns up every day with a can-do approach and a positive attitude. We first enlisted Lindsay to rent our townhouse, but as time wore on and the CofO delayed time and again, we ultimately decided to sell the house. Lindsay sourced 9 options for stagers and gave us a realistic timeline for selling. She informed us of every showing and their level of interest. She even sniffed out some shady prospective buyers and denied them appointments. When our staging contract was up, she helped us find a new solution quickly; and when we had to get that furniture out in a matter of days, she found a mover and a storage facility and a way to make it all happen like magic. She also worked with our contractors and architect to tweak things here and there when I couldn't be there - something certainly not in our contract. When she ultimately found the perfect buyer, Lindsay worked with both sides patiently to come to a fair price for everyone involved, without any bad blood. In the end, our house found a truly happy new owner who even invited us over for dinner! We've worked with lots of brokers across the years, but Lindsay is more than a broker. She's an aesthete, a caregiver, and an optimist. She so obviously loves her job, which makes Lindsay a ray of sunshine in what can be a gloomy process.”" Heidi M.
"“We can confidently say that we wouldn't be in our dream apartment today without Lindsay. Her relationships with other brokers and deep knowledge of the NYC market made our purchase possible. Additionally, she is honest and a pleasure to work with - truly the perfect combination.”" Leah S.
"“Lindsay helped us sell our DUMBO apartment in possibly the most challenging circumstances a broker can work within — a 5 hour time difference and all comms across email, Zoom and WhatsApp. She got together with us (via Zoom) in the beginning to understand what our expectations were in terms of frequency of updates, etc and never let us down! She was completely hands on through the long distance clean up and staging, and even helped us clear a storage locker before closing. She is always one step ahead, looking around corners and thinking about what’s next. You absolutely want Lindsay on your side!.”" Erica H.
"“As first-time buyers we were extremely lucky to find Lindsay. We had a firm moving deadline, no experience and had just been ghosted by our previous broker.

A London native, Lindsay relocated to Brooklyn in 2010, following stints in Dubai and Hong Kong. During her real estate career, she has consistently achieved outstanding results for her clients, whether in achieving record sale prices for her sellers or finding her buyers their dream homes.
Her journey into real estate follows successful careers in both media and healthcare. Having worked for industry giants Ogilvy & Mather, Penguin Books and as a music video producer for Warner Music, she was able to hone her extensive marketing and event skills, her ear for snappy copy, and her eye for great art and design. Looking to fulfill a long-held ambition, Lindsay later retrained and worked as a midwife at London’s prestigious St Thomas’ Hospital, delivering hundreds of babies into the world and gaining some of the most important life experience of all, that of helping countless families through the transition to becoming parents.
Lindsay’s considerable business acumen, exceptional marketing, sales and negotiation skills, and superior level of customer service have made her indispensable to her clients, while her authenticity and genuine interest in people enable her to form close and trusting relationships, that quickly get to the heart of what her clients’ real estate needs and desires are.
Lindsay lives with her two children, and their labradoodle Ollie, in Bay Ridge, after having lived in Park Slope for a decade. She writes a regular real estate column 'The Stoop' for the Park Slope Reader magazine.
