"I have worked with Melanie on several complex deals and have been incredibly impressed by her ability to work with all parties while at the same time making sure her client was best protected. Not only does she have great knowledge about the New York City market but she is a true problem solver and stays involved in the deal from start to finish. She genuinely cares about her clients and works extremely hard to see their goals met." - Lisa Gabler, Attorney
"I started working with Melanie in 2008, as a first time home buyer, when she helped me find an East Village one-bedroom apartment that became my home for 10 years. It was my first experience working with a real estate broker who valued our communication and worked with me in trying to define what I was looking for above all else. Since 2008 Melanie and I have continued working together — in 2014 she advised me every step of the way when I was looking to invest in property, and with her guidance, knowledge and perseverance throughout the very lengthy transaction, I purchased a beautiful SRO building in Harlem. In 2017, after the building was renovated and changed in occupancy, Melanie put the property on the market at the right price and within weeks it was rented out over the ask to some great long-term tenants. Most recently, in 2018, she helped me navigate through selling my apartment and, as a newly-single mother of two, moving my family and into a new home. My plan was in constant flux, and Melanie was there communicating with me and helping me define what was best every step of the way. I will continue working with Melanie on any future projects, she is simply the best! " - FG / Buyer, Seller, Landlord
"Melanie was a cornerstone of my sell high/buy low real estate adventure. She helped me relocate from a smaller apartment in Greenwich Village to a larger and more family friendly location East. In such a volatile market she was completely patient and helpful while keeping me sane and grounded always focused on the ultimate goal that I had started this journey. I am grateful to know her as my friend and happy to recommend her as a dedicated resource in the Manhattan real estate jungle." - Suzanne Lane, Seller & Buyer
"Melanie has helped us navigate several important moments in the past years. She helped us seamlessly go through the process of buying our home to renting it out a few years later. She combines her professional attitude and knowledge of the market with the ability to handle the emotional process involved in real estate decisions. Knowing she always had our best interests as a priority is truly the best feeling. Caring for her clients is her signature way of handling things. " - Silvia & Rafa / Buyers & Landlords
"Working with Melanie on the sale of our home was an absolute pleasure. She brought with her not only a deeply informed and clear-eyed view of the market (which we benefited from greatly) but real compassion for how we would experience the process on a personal level. With all the moving parts considered, Melanie devised a successful strategy that made the entire process feel effortless. I’m pleased to be working with Melanie again on the purchase of my next home." - Maceo Bishop, Seller
"My husband and I cannot say enough about how much we love Melanie. She is at the top of her game and is one of a kind in a business that doesn’t always lend to the most reliable and experienced professionals. She had everything covered for us when I tend to be the one who has to make sure everything is covered. And most importantly she took care of our family and knew how difficult this move was for us after 16 years. We love her so much and anyone would be lucky to have her help them change their lives." - Erin Wile, Seller
