"At a friend’s recommendation I hired Ronita to help sell my West Village apartment. From our first conversation, she was incredibly thoughtful around the characteristics of suitable buyers for a conservative co-op, how I should think about pricing, and timing of listing given concerns I had about when I would be able to move out. In these early days her photographer also took wonderful pictures to showcase the apartment at its best. During the showing process, Ronita and team had potential buyers coming in immediately and we had offers on the table within a week of our first showing. She gave me great advice when I was deciding between buyers, helped me successfully negotiate for additional things I wanted, and coordinated responses to tricky questions from the co-op board. She was incredibly responsive and I always felt like a priority. I would have no doubts about using Ronita again for my real estate needs!"

"Ronita and her assistant Nancy were both excellent to work with. Ronita was a pitbull during negotiations and loyal through it all. I felt she had my best interest at the forefront every step of the way and during my walk through Nancy made sure I was aware of every meticulous detail. I can’t recommend Ronita and her team enough."
- Pamela Wilkins

"Ronita worked very hard to compete with so many studio listings in the build, most of them were sponsors' units. This is not an easy task. To get the deal done, Ronita arranged the open house almost every weekend as she could. She guided me to the market condition and adjusted the price accordingly. She is a very skillful and energetic agent I have ever seen from my past real estate dealings."
- Weiyi Wang

"Ronita was so fun to work with, which made a huge difference for me as a first-time buyer. She really knew the neighborhood we were looking at, and her insight into particular buildings was really helpful in our decision-making. We love our new home!"
- Beverly Tchang

Ronita Kalra was the listing agent on my CoOp sale on the Upper West Side this year(2104). I had selected Ronita from my past experience with her when she worked at Apple. I knew her work ethic, intelligence, and ability to always succeed in the past, would be a good indicator of how she would handle the sale of my most valuable possession (my home).

When she showed up at the interview with Luis to meet myself and my wife I was so satisfied with all the work they had already done, towards selling my CoOp, and we had not even listed with them yet. This of course was another indicator of me selecting the correct person to sell my real estate. She had done all her homework , and you could tell how well she understood the NYC real estate market. Ronita is always professional, and understands the
value of a partnership between seller and Broker.

Needless to say, on our first day of listing we had a record turnout, and received 6 offers from the first day on the market. Interestingly enough I thought we had priced the property a little high and she assured me we did not. She continued to educate me on the market conditions, and when it was all done I had accepted an offer in that week for 5.5% above list price.

I would recommend anyone interested in selling their property to use Ronita Kalra as the listing agent. You may never find someone more capable to handle the sale of your property.

"Recently I decided to sell my condo in Midtown. I have been in the Manhattan real estate business as an owner and developer for 30yrs, in that time I have run across many different types of personalities in this business. Ronita has been with out a doubt the most responsive well organized and more then willing to get the job done type. She was not only professional she is a pleasure to deal with. It's rare to come across a broker in this city that you feel they have your best interest at heart. Her and her team did a fantastic job for not just me the seller but also a great job for the buyer"
- Michael Polizzi

"Ronita was a pleasure to work with throughout the sale of my one bedroom coop on the Upper West Side. Although it was a smaller listing, Ronita and her team gave it the same treatment as one of their multimillion dollar listings, using a graphic designer, staging, and hosting open houses until we had signed contracts. We went into contract in just two weeks! Ronita came prepared to all meetings, was highly responsive and professional. She managed the board package process and worked with the board and management company up until closing. I am very happy we decided to work with Ronita and her team on the sale of our home."

"I’m a former Real Estate Broker in NYC for over 16 years so I knew what needed to be done to sell our Townhouse.  

My husband and I hired Luis & Ronita to sell our Three-Family Townhouse, however, I was a little skeptical to be honest but my sister basically pushed me into a listing meeting.  After meeting Luis & Ronita I signed the agreement immediately. Ronita was the point person that took over and wow were we impressed in her professionalism, keenness and knowledge of the market and doing a deal.  She made us feel as if we were her only clients; which we knew was impossible and not the case, but that was the attention we received from the day we signed the listing agreement to the day we closed. She made sure we were in the loop and knew exactly the outcome of each showing; optimistic, energetic and an infectious drive to get the deal done, even while planning her wedding! Very impressive multi-tasking to say the least.

My husband and I truly respected her attention to details as to ensuring our success and would refer Ronita a million times over.  We say this knowing the business and knowing there are thousands of agents in NYC. We value Ronita as one of the best and have already referred her because we are confident she can get the deal done and done right.   

Luis, you have a true diamond on your team and thank you!

Ronita, we love you and will refer you to everyone we know!!  Thank you so, so much for your hard work…."

"I cannot say enough great things about Ronita! As first time buyers, she helped my wife and I navigate every step of the process. From thinking about the right neighborhoods to dealing with mortgages and financing, Ronita and her team were on the ball. It went exceptionally well, and having her in our corner made us confident the entire time. If you are looking for a broker, Ronita and her team should be your top choice"

"I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Ronita Kalra and Nancy Shehadeh as my realtor in the search for a new tenant. Nancy was my point person but they were both involved and what a team . Throughout the entire process Nancy was professional, knowledgeable, conscientious, timely, and motivated. I always felt as though I was her top priority. They were both diligently found candidates that fit my criteria and was more than generous to work around my schedule, in less than one week she found a suitable tenant. She communicated and interacted with all parties involved after work and on weekends. She is a very hard worker and illustrated great understanding of the details of the leasing process and gave great expert advice on what to expect. I really appreciated their calm reassurance and both outstanding professional.  Nancy is a savvy, personable individual that knows the market inside and out. I credit Ronita and Nancy for a smooth, stress-free leasing experience. To reiterate, I’m nothing but pleased with both their expertise and will recommend both to everyone I know."

"I had heard amazing things about Ronita Kalra and to say that she proved every word to be true is an understatement. Ronita was there for me throughout the entire process. She is extremely knowledgable in real estate and  regardless of the question or concern I had she always met with an informed answer. 10/10 I would definitely use Ronita again."
- Rachel Grunau

"Ronnie made our selling process effortless. She answered all our questions with confidence and kept us informed while we sold our apartment from out of state. She has extensive knowledge of the market and made us feel comfortable with every step of the process. From staging to listing to negotiating offers - she was on point and we couldn't have been happier. She led the selling strategy and put us in the best position. Thanks to her expertise and hard work we had a very short time on market and received an offer at full ask. She even recommended great movers for us. If we still lived in NYC, we'd use her for every real estate transaction - no question."
