"Honestly Renée was the best broker helping me get through this out of state sale. There were moments of chaos but she was the calm in the storm.

I cannot thank Renée enough for her help in crossing this sale over the finish line. I wish her continued success with many big sales in the future!

- Anita A.


"Thanks to Renée, she helped me find the ideal two bedroom apt in Manhattan. I used several brokers in the past but none of them are as detailed, knowledgeable and resourceful as Renée. She will do above and beyond the work in finding the comps, gathering information on excel sheet, tracking all the likes and dislikes of each apt that we looked together. In matter of couple months, she found this great apt for me.

On top of that, negotiating the price is big part of real estate and you definitely want Renée to be on your side. Not only does she negotiate well, she will get the best deal on the property for me. She is very meticulous in her work and carefully looks at each rooms so that we don't miss anything.

But the biggest part that I appreciate Renée the most is her honesty. In real estate, every broker will just tell you to buy or sell and just wants the commission. I never get this impression from Renée during the whole time we were searching. Knowing what I am interested and understanding my investment objectives, she will tell me exactly what she thinks works well and if I should consider or not. Plus she has very good taste.

"Renée was so wonderful to work with when apartment hunting in New York can be very stressful. She really listened to the things I was looking for in a place and focused on finding me apartments that I would really love. I found JUST what I wanted and love it! She also showed me around town and introduced different neighborhoods to me since I was new to the city. I'm so grateful to have had Renée to help me find a new home."

-Mondo Y.


"Thanks to Renée, my apartment was rented in just 6 days! Renée is driven, dedicated, detailed, knowledgeable and most importantly trustworthy. She not only always kept my best interest in mind, she ensured I had a full understanding every step of the process. I highly recommend Renée and look forward to working with her again."

-Francois L.
