★★★★★
"Penny epitomizes the phrase ‘above and beyond.’ Most of our conversations begin with Penny saying, “so I was thinking about your apartment at 4am last night...” She is not afraid to think outside the box, and always brings a positive, can-do attitude to the table. There is no shortage of creativity in her process. She knows how to highlight what buyers are interested in while making your home feel one of a kind, but simultaneously has been ahead of any problems that might need to be addressed while preparing the apartment so that the sale could proceed quickly and easily. Penny comes from the world of competitive sports and it shows: she thinks like a champion training for the Olympics. You will always be in good hands." - Ali Gordon

★★★★★
"Penny has been amazing in these crazy times. The time she commits to her listings is truly incredible. She is on the ground for hours getting our apartment ready for listing and then spending hours after that strategizing how best to sell it. The uncertainties of the COVID world are stressful. Having Penny listing our apartment for sale means that's one thing we don't have to worry about at all -- we know we are in the best possible hands." - Kendall Fox-Handler

★★★★★
"Penny and her team have represented multiple generations of my family over a decade. Whether it is a purchase, sale, or lease. Penny is the only real estate professional we will use. Her expertise is second to none. Penny always does what is best for her clients. Her honesty and integrity is refreshing in what is the world's most challenging real estate market. Penny has become more than just our real estate broker, she is our real estate advisor and dear friend." - George S.

★★★★★
"I have been involved in real estate in one way or another for over 3 decades. I have been in this law firm, of which I am now CEO for 29 years and we are in 29 US cities and 7 overseas. We are known for various things but especially real estate, and especially in New York. We were ranked the Number One firm for real estate in the US last year. Having said that, I had never personally worked with Penny before this though she enjoys an excellent reputation. I have never been more impressed with the dedication, hard work, responsiveness and knowledge ability of someone in her profession as I have been with her. Whether early in the morning, late at night or today, when she cancelled a trip to assist me in meeting on almost no notice, she is “old school”. Providing me with answers, information, and selling but not so hard as to turn me off. If I buy, Penny will be a key reason why." - Richard R.

★★★★★
"Penny is the best. We moved to New York from California fifteen years ago and by chance she helped us rent an apartment in a condominium. We fell in love with New York and the building and asked her to find a place in the building to buy. She searched around, solicited potential sellers for the type of place we were looking for at a fair price. She shortly found the right place at the right price and she made sure everything went smoothly for our move. Five year later we were blessed to have grandchildren born who lived in San Francisco. We decided we needed a bigger place to accommodate our family and many friends from California who were visiting New York. The real estate market at the time was hot and we decided to sell our place ourselves without the aid of the broker. We were wrong. Six months later I called Penny and cried for help. Being the great person and broker she is said no problem. She asked me to give her the names of the people who had looked at the apartment and for whatever reason decided to not go ahead and buy it. Sure enough she contacted one of those people and succeeded where I could not. Once again, the transaction proceeded smoothly and she also had us find our dream apartment that could accommodate us as well as all our welcome visitors." - Ron R.
