"Stephanie was referred to me by a family friend who used her to sell their downtown apartment. They spoke very highly of her so I decided to give her a call.
My family has lived in our first apartment for about five years but with our new addition to our family we were in need of more space. We needed help renting out our current apartment while simultaneously searching for a larger one. Stephanie helped us through a complex deal that had us running back and forth between our attorney, lender, contractor and financial advisor. She handled all the moving pieces seamlessly and professionally. I knew the timeline we had given her was unrealistic but she ended up sourcing a great tenant and finding us our new home faster than we thought possible. Stephanie was patient, knowledgeable and very thoughtful throughout the entire process. She knew the inventory well and her negotiation skills definitely saved us some much needed cash as this whole transition became more expensive than we planned. I would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone in need of an experienced agent who clearly cares about their clients interests."
"Stephanie is an absolute pleasure to work with and has the patience of a saint. We had been looking on and off the market for over a year and probably poked around at over 100 places in Brooklyn alone. From day one, Stephanie was there with us. Offering insights into the market and neighborhoods and offering quick turnarounds for any units and open houses we wanted to check. With our combined hunt on Compass, we were quickly working towards finding the perfect home collaboratively. While getting excited with us, and adding her honest thoughts when we were unsure. Pointing our things we hadn’t thought about and staying on top of things with the sellers side.
Finally, when we found the one Stephanie was on it. Working hand in hand to get the offer accepted and fully accessible and communicative with any and all of our concerns or wants met. She was with us every step of the way.
We highly recommend her to anyone considering buying a home. Stephanie is awesome and we would easily work with her again."
"Stephanie is a great partner to have if you’re looking to buy, rent or invest in real estate. Thank you for you invaluable advice and thoughtful insights. Looking forward to working with you in the future."
"Stephanie, was a HUGE help for my family and I. She got us our dream home and everything we desired. She was very knowledgeable and helped us through process and made everything so comfortable. Her negotiation skills came in handy to get the exact deal we wanted for our budget. She would not back down and was our “bull dog”. Thank you Steph! We will use you again in the future."
"I am a young first-time homeowner who went into the buying process for a Brooklyn Co-Op pretty much blind. Stephanie was there every step of the way to ensure I was informed, kept up to date and kept at ease. Without prompt, she recommended lawyers and movers who were stellar. We put together a board package in less than two weeks - a very quick timeline due to my own time constraint - and she worked relentlessly to expedite the process with building management to meet my timeline. Above all, Stephanie was a pleasure to work with - friendly, knowledgeable and truly passionate about her work. Buying an apartment in NYC can be an ordeal (a Co-Op especially); I'm thankful I had Stephanie to guide me through!"
"Stephanie was an AWESOME agent! She always answered her phone and replied to emails swiftly. She had a really good understanding of the local market and we’d use her again the next time we buy a home. Highly recommended!”
"Stephanie and I were connected through a co-worker who also worked with her in the past few years. After 8 months of looking on my own, I found the process of purchasing real estate in this city exhausting but working with her made all the difference. She was honest, kind and very knowledgeable. At first I was looking at only new development and then she pointed out some really nice turn key properties that did not have the risks and high upfront costs of new development. She saved me a lot of money and put me in touch with her team who worked in sync from the start to the closing table. When you work with Stephanie you are working with a professional, I highly recommend her."
"Stephanie showed me a few places in the battery park/TriBeCa neighborhoods. I've had a few realtors show me places before but Stephanie was the most knowledgable and well mannered. Her kindness and hard work ethic was truly rare to find. She went over and beyond to find me a place which was comfortable and exactly what I had asked for. I will most definitely use her in the future with all my real estate needs."
