“Since I met Pia at an open house for the first time, she has listened to me carefully to understand what I want and tried her best to provide listings I might be interested in. She patiently accommodated my preference on the area, size, views, etc. She negotiated the purchase price with the seller and got a good price for me. She also introduced me to a great mortgage broker and lawyer which were both great and very responsive. Thanks to the team, after I agreed on a price with the seller, everything went smoothly. I am happy that I was able to complete my first apartment purchase with the support of the great team." - Takefume S.
"When I met Pia, I immediately felt a connection to her. She was kind and compassionate. We sat down to talk about my needs, goals, and budget. She immediately put together a plan. She showed me many apartments that hit all the checkboxes and eventually, we narrowed it down.
When I made my final decision, Pia was my partner. She walked me through all the steps of being a buyer. She helped me find a lawyer, get all my finances in a row, and most Importantly, she walked through the arduous process of compiling my coop board package. Needless to say, we were successful and I could be happier in my apartment. Pia is compassionate, patient, thorough, and immensely competent.
Although buying a home is the biggest commitment one can make (financially), Pia kept me on-track and made the process relatively easy. Seeing her when I closed gave me a sense of ease and confidence and I am proud to say that we keep in touch (of course she was there when we closed).
Managing a relationship w/me over such a long time demonstrates her professionalism, kindness, & many other traits I admire. I value her over the name on the door & I will consider her in all of my future real estate needs." - Michael S.
