Alex and Sharon were punctual, patient, accommodating and responsive, making apartment search in NYC a much easier process. They went out of their way to answer our questions even after we moved in. We would recommend them to friends. - Yolanda S.
We worked with Sharon and Alexandra when they represented the apartment we purchased in a cooperative building on the Upper East Side. Throughout the entire process -- from viewings to closing -- they were absolutely delightful to work with on both a personal and professional level. Their attention to detail, responsiveness, knowledge of the market and purchase process, as well as graciousness and integrity made them stand out amongst other brokers we encountered throughout our apartment search. We would absolutely not hesitate in recommending Sharon and Alex to others and would happily use their services again. - Alexandra & Lorenzo S.
