" "Dear Ellie Thank you, thank you. There it is - two thank yous! One for the amazing and spot-on work you did helping us find our new wonderful apartment, and the second for the amazing work you did selling our old apartment. I might add one more thank you because of course you did this for us 7 years ago when we moved to New York and bought our first apartment here. Ellie you have a gift for this. You not only bring a wealth of expertise to what is obviously a daunting process, but you bring grace and ease (and sanity) as well. You appraised our apartment, advised us on how to get it ready to list, and encouraged us to accept a fair offer. Needless to say this is the apartment you first encouraged us to buy 7 years ago. And this apartment appreciated nicely in those 7 years so your advice turned out to be an excellent investment. Simultaneously as the selling process proceeded, you spent many Sundays tramping all over the city with us looking for our new neighborhood and home. From that experience and our feedback you figured out what made sense for us as we narrowed our search to a particular neighborhood. When the right apartment appeared you encouraged us to move quickly with an offer, and led us through the negotiations that ensued. This is how we have ended up buying an apartment that suits us exactly and that we purchased at a fair price. In New York City this is not an easy feat to accomplish. Obviously there is no way Bob and I could have managed this transition from one apartment to another on our own. We have been in your expert and capable hands for the last six months. The only down side to all of this is we don't get to hang out with you as much as we did while this process was underway. We have enjoyed your company and consider you a wonderful friend. It was fun spending time with you in person and on the phone as the drama of the day unfolded and then resolved repeatedly throughout the process. Each particular drama beautifully managed by you (in consultation with us) I must add. Wow. It has been quite a ride. So many, many thanks - way more than 3 really - for all you have done to help us. We wish you the best in both your personal and professional life. And though we have no plans to move any time soon! we will refer family and friends with the reassurance that they will be guided and assisted by such a lovely and capable expert. All the best to you Ellie.” " - Susan and Bob M.

" "I have used Ellie Wald's team to buy an Apt. in NY City. As I came specially to find an Apt, we worked really hard and found the apartment that I wanted to buy in only 1 month! Ellie and Deborah are both very kind, honest, efficient and hardworking. Deborah was the broker who did the search and went with me to see the different apartments. I truly enjoyed working with her! And we stayed in good relations. I will certainly be happy to continue working with the Wald Team. I highly recommend using their services." " - Michelle D.

" "We just wanted to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for all your efforts in helping us purchase our Manhattan apartment. Never having purchased a cooperative apartment before, your guidance and expertise was invaluable. Beginning with your patience in showing us many different units throughout the neighborhood, all the way through to the organized process you developed and insisted we follow to facilitate coop board approval, your unwavering encouragement and optimism made the process almost enjoyable. As a direct result of your guidance, we were able to purchase the apartment that was "just right" for us. You are a true professional in every sense of the word. Thanks again for all your help. ” " - -Sam & Caryn

" "It has been almost 2 months since we moved into our new penthouse apartment, and we are loving every moment in our new home! Ellie, thank you once again for sticking with us for over 18 months of ups and downs you are truly a professional. We are truly grateful for all the technology that you used to help us especially the VIP website that kept us on track for all the long period of our search. We are looking forward to you coming to visit us now that we have all of our furniture in place and have settled in.” " - Michaela & Steven S.

" "The past 3 months of searching have finally come to a great end, we found the perfect home! And we owe it all to you and your team. The efficiency and determination to serve OUR needs was unbelievable and even when you could have easily convinced us to go with the other apartment and to finish your work sooner you insisted that we can do better. We truly respect you as a Broker and a person. Thank you for introducing us to a simple way of finding our dream home you made the process as painless as can be.We looking forward to recommending you to the rest of our family.” " - -Evelyn & Dmitry

""We just wanted to take the time to thank you for the amazing work you and your team did with finding us a New construction apartment on the UWS. We just wanted to let you know that this is our 3rd apartment we have purchased in Manhattan and me must say hands down you made the process so seamless and smooth with all the tools you used to keep us up to date and organized (we especially liked our private client website that we have never seen anywhere else). In short it was a pleasure working with you and we would recommend you to anyone that is looking for a hard working super knowledgeable and just plain nice person to work with. Once again thank you, and we look forward to you selling our apartment in 3-4 years.” " - Jane & Michael
