“I want to give an unsolicited recommendation to Desiree who worked with us on the recent sale of our home. Desiree Docktor (a midtown neighbor) of Alain Pinel Realtors was outstanding! She was terrific in all phases of the sale: staging, pricing and timing the listing. Desiree kept a close eye on competing houses and adjusted the timing for accepting offers to maximize our leverage. We sold the house for hundreds of thousands above the list price and we were more than happy with her efforts! If you are considering selling we recommend that you talk to Desiree.”
