Halstead Rookie of the Year 2015
Top Producing Agent 2017
"Elena was fantastic. She was professional and easy to work with. She knows the market very well and was able to get us within a few thousand of our asking price. We had a buyer so quickly we only had to keep our apartment "show-ready" for about a week. It really couldn't have been easier. Even when the appraisal came in much lower than we expected, she went above and beyond to make sure sale went through. Highly recommend!“ - Claude G.
“Elena was a godsend to me when I suddenly found myself having to relocate to Riverdale from Beijing and settle in with a new life to launch within six months. With just one phone call to feel out my needs while I was still living abroad, she captured everything I was looking for in a home. She is incredibly gifted in grasping the essence of people and finding the right neighborhood and community to match them. Her approach towards real estate transactions is elegant and thoughtful, always responsive to her client's changing needs and heeding the details. I trust her fully and cannot thank her enough for being there for us, all the way, from finding our new home, until and beyond our move into it. She is SIMPLY AMAZING. I recommend her to anyone looking for a home in NYC with the highest regard!“ -Y.Mao.
“Elena was very professional and responsive. She wasted no time helping us look for a perfect home. Her great personality and ability helped us buy our first home successfully in a co-op building. I am so glad that Elena really puts her heart out to her clients. Thank you!“ - Win Chi C.
“We had a wonderful experience working with Elena S. After being on the market for 6 months listed with another Real Estate Firm we reached out to Elena (who we knew was a neighborhood expert). Elena immediately came in with proactive ideas on how to best present our listing. We had an offer we were happy with in about a month! Elena is professional, personable, and really knows the Real Estate industry. We wish we would have listed with her from the beginning!“ - Sandy R.
