“Francie helped to sell our house in Dobbs Ferry, and we couldn't be happier. Her knowledge and passion were evident from the moment we met her, and we immediately knew she was the right agent for us. Her communication was great through the entire process. She was always available and immediately answered any questions or concerns that we had. She was dead on with the listing price, and got us top dollar. I can't recommend her enough. If you're looking to buy or sell in the rivertowns, don't look any further.”

“Francie Malina is one of if not the most knowledgeable, impressive, personable real estate professional in Westchester. She not only knows where the homes and apartments are for sale and rent, but she has instinctive ability to match up buyers and sellers and the brains and communication skills to make the deal happen quickly and as smoothly as possible. She is quick to point out possible pitfalls and brings in outside experts for opinions when necessary and important. I could not possibly recommend Francie Malina any higher--she is honestly the best of the best.”

“Not only did Francie find us our dream home and help us win the bidding war, she connected us with a painter, flooring contractor, carpet installer, cleaning service and multiple babysitters. It feels like the closing was only the beginning of our relationship with Francie - she has been there every step of the way since we landed in the glorious Rivertowns. She is no longer our agent, she is our friend. Call her -- you won't regret it!!!!”

“I have bought and sold properties several times and have never had as great an experience with a realtor as I did with Francie. The best way to sum it up is that Francie made me feel 100% taken-care-of throughout the entire process--from looking at properties, showing and telling us about the community, putting me in touch with local resources, during the inspection and offer/negotiation, all the way through and past the closing! I'm sure Francie will continue to be a trusted resource for us as we move and get to know our new community.”

“Francie treated us like family from the first time we met her through getting settled in our new home, and has remained one of our closest friends since. Her knowledge of all aspects of the River Towns -- schools, parks, neighborhoods, restaurants, painters, plumbers, contractors, etc -- is incredible. Francie is fun, funny, authentic and so kind. She is the exact opposite of any stereotypes you might have about real estate brokers, and makes what is often a stressful and painful process so much easier. We would recommend her to anyone considering moving to the area, or anyone just interested in learning more about Westchester.”

“As first time homebuyers, we needed a true and honest partner to be patient with us as we were educated on homeownership, while in the actual process at the same time. Francie was every bit of that and more through the entire process, even able to give guidance on all of Westchester as we narrowed in on our town of choice. She delivered the best partners in the business when it came time for inspections, etc. Even now, a month into owning our home she’s still in touch with us sending local happenings and contacts, making the transition to a new town that much easier! Francie proved time after time to be an exceptional individual first, then followed by first hand display of why she is considered a top realtor by all. Truly, we feel like she has become part of our family and excited for whomever has the opportunity to work with her in the future.”

“Francie knows the River Towns inside and out and is a fount of local knowledge. She really listened to what we wanted and was thoughtful in providing us with guidance throughout our search. She has great insight -- fairness of price, quality of amenities etc.-- and she is confident in sharing her honest opinion (which we loved). She anticipated our needs, including things we didn't even know we needed! And she is tremendously fun and warm, so we enjoyed house-hunting with her. We recommend her unreservedly.”
