"Buy and Sell with Sorel"
Sorel’s highly accomplished background and international experience give her an unparalleled advantage in the world of New York real estate, where opportunities move fast and impeccable service is everything. With a meticulous eye for detail, strong financial acumen, an ability to get things done, and being a natural problem-solver, Sorel is a diamond in the rough world of NYC real estate. She works her magic to make even the most difficult transaction seamless for her clients.
After completing her MBA at Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, the most prestigious hotel school in the world, Sorel began a ten-year success story in hospitality and customer service. She began at Starwood hotels in Australia and was quickly promoted to oversee revenue management systems for the entire Asia-Pacific region. From there, Sorel was given the opportunity to launch the W Hotel in Hong Kong as Director of Revenue Management.
After the W Hotel, Sorel honed her negotiating skills as Director of Sales and Marketing for an entertainment company in Asia where she was responsible for distribution in seven countries and secured the company’s two most lucrative deals. Her globetrotting path then took her to Manhattan, where she discovered the perfect city for her talents and experience.
Sorel has been to sixty-five countries across all seven continents (yes, even Antartica!). She has a love and appreciation for wine influenced by her time in Europe and Australia, and inspired by her upbringing in Lodi, California, the storied wine region and Zinfandel capital. With a passion for luxury properties and a talent for analyzing the market, Sorel is the perfect resource for all of her clients.
"It was such a great experience working with Sydney and Sorel in purchasing our apartment. They were extremely diligent, detailed-oriented, knowledgeable and more importantly just friendly and nice people. Their guidance and expertise throughout the long and complicated process was invaluable. We would gladly work with them again in the future and can confidently recommend them to anyone looking to partner up with a great team. " - Binh N.
"Sorel and Sydney were fantastic realtors in our search for a co-op in Brooklyn, and we would be happy to recommend them (via billboards, if we won the lottery!) to the strangers of the internet looking for someone to help them navigate the unique real estate landscape in NYC. They kept us well-informed and calm throughout what we expected to be an insanely competitive process, and we were coming in knowing only what we had seen from the very silly and extravagant Bravo show "Million Dollar Listing."" - Jenna S.
"Sydney and Sorel are a dream team that you may want if you are looking to buy a home in NYC. They are not only knowledgable, professional and knows every details of the market, but also responsive, organized, and efficient. " - Sophie J.
"Sorel and Sydney were exceptional at working with us to find the right place at the right price. As first time buyers in the city we had little knowledge of the rigor of assembling a Buyer's Purchase Package for the Board of Directors and Management of a Co-Op. Sydney and Sorel guided us through the process with great expertise. They made sure we were aware of all deadlines, content requirements, and the nuances of submitting a great package and presenting ourselves in the best light. In fact, when we met the board for our interview the president of the board told us our package was the best he'd ever seen. I highly recommend Sydney and Sorel to anyone looking for help in their search for a NYC property." - Mark D.
"Sorel and Sydney are the ultimate real estate duo. At the beginning of my journey to buying an apartment in NYC, I struggled to find an agent that I felt understood what I wanted or that I could trust. But after a short phone call with Sydney and Sorel, they were able to send me several pages of listings that perfectly encapsulated what I was looking for. And after deciding to work with them, I continued to be amazed by their understanding of my needs. From setting up showings that accommodated my trying work schedule to helping me submit a daunting board package for my dream apartment, Sydney and Sorel were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. I would recommend the two of them to anybody looking to buy or rent in NYC!" - Elizabeth R.
“Sydney and Sorel are the ultimate dynamic duo in the real estate market. Witty and charming, these ladies understand how to cater to your needs and wants when it comes to finding your perfect place to call home. They take into consideration all aspects when it comes to real estate, from recommending wonderful mortgage loan officers to attorneys that will help you close the deal, the network of people they have will help support you in ever step of the way, just like Sydney and Sorel."- Thomas W.
