"When I moved to New York for the first time, I had no idea where I wanted to live and what exactly I was looking for in an apartment. Ivy knew how to ask all of the right questions to help me figure it out. She knows the New York real estate market extremely well and is honest and open about the pros and cons of any apartment she shows. With Ivy, I never felt rushed to make decisions, and it made all the difference to know that I had someone who actually cared about finding me the right place by my side. If you are looking for someone who will keep you calm and really take care of you through the often stressful process of apartment hunting, Ivy is your girl." - Jenna

"AMAZING. Everyone says buying in NYC is a nightmare. Not the case for us because Jenna made it so simple. We always felt she had our best interests at heart and did everything she could to help us make it happen. And she did! " - Jessica S.

"Ivy is far and away the best of the brokers with whom I've ever worked! I have lived in the city for nearly ten years now and moved four times -- I've probably interacted with over twenty apartment brokers throughout the years. I recommend Ivy really strongly! In addition to being super-friendly and nice, Ivy went completely above and beyond in my apartment search. She really made finding a great apartment painless, even while we were visiting many apartments with my opinionated family members. She is also a total pleasure to work with and my mom, my sister and I all think the world of her!" - -Caroline

"I met Ivy by accident when I was helping my daughter to search for an apartment in NYC in 2010. My daughter was working a full time job and did not have time to perform the search with success. I am a commercial broker in Maryland and had a sense of what to look for and did a lot of research on line. I happened upon a listing that Ivy had and I called her. I could tell instantly when I spoke with Ivy on the phone that she knew what she was doing and wasn’t out to make a fast buck but to help my daughter navigate through the difficult process of finding the right apartment in NYC. After speaking to Ivy for about a half hour I put her in touch with my daughter who met with her the following day. Ivy wanted to make sure she knew what apartments my daughter had already looked at so as to not waste her time by duplication. To make a long story short, by 5:00 that afternoon, Ivy had helped my daughter find the perfect apartment. Since that time I used Ivy for my other daughter who was relocating to NYC in addition to referring her to many of my friends from Maryland. My friends have been thrilled with Ivy’s services as well. She is the utmost professional in addition to being warm and caring. The perfect combination for a successful realtor in my opinion because she wants to help her clients find the perfect fit and really knows what she is doing!" - Amy

"Being a first time home buyer was nerve wracking enough, and purchasing an Apartment in NYC made it even more intimidating. Working with Jenna helped ease all of my concerns and hesitations. Jenna is knowledgeable, reliable, attentive, always makes her clients her priority and genuinely fun to go through the process with. Not was she an expert at guiding me through the entire purchasing process, but her thoroughness and attention to detail was truly the reason I closed on my ideal apartment. Jenna is absolutely a fantastic broker and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking. " - Shana

"Last summer my husband and I were interested in buying a coop in Brooklyn Heights for our son who lives in New York City. With my husband and I living in Virginia Beach, VA, it was not going to be easy for us to see every apt on the market on short notice. In addition, we only had a month to find the right place in time for my son to move in after his current lease was up. I chose to contact Ivy Paterni based on my friends suggestion who also had a great experience working with her. From the moment we spoke I knew I could trust Ivy and felt an immediate connection with her. I explained our situation and she assured me she would take care of my son and make sure she found the right apartment for him in our absence. Ivy made the apartment search so much easier as she met with my son on several occasions to look at apartments, taking pictures and notes and emailing to me that day so we had all the information as well. Finally, my husband and I spent a weekend with Ivy looking at the apartments my son and her had narrowed down and we made our final decision. Ivy came prepared with more facts and figures and information on apartments available for sale in each building than even the listing agent. Ivy Paterni is the most professional realtor I have ever worked with. She is incredibly bright, detail oriented, personable, friendly and most of all honest. She is available immediately through email and phone and did everything she could to facilitate the purchase of our apartment. I would and have recommended Ivy Paterni whole-heartedly to anyone looking for an apartment in the New York area. " - Fern

"Jenna is AMAZING. I was lucky enough to work with her as I was searching a 2 bedroom apartment my family. I was overwhelmed by the search, and she helped me through the entire process, making it very manageable. She anticipated every need, and helped us to prioritize. She has a great eye, and she was a pleasure to work with. We moved to a new neighborhood, and she even helped to acquaint us with the area! I would recommend Jenna to anyone looking a reliable broker. We couldn’t be happier!" - Katherine

"I recently purchased an apartment in NYC and Jenna DeChristopher was my broker. I am a first time home buyer and Jenna could not have been more attentive to making sure I fully understood the process and she also paid extra close attention to my needs. When it came time to submit my board package Jenna made sure everything was ready to go on time and put all of my concerns to rest. As a result of Jenna truly understanding and owning the process my experience was fun and enjoyable. Jenna truly helped me find the perfect apartment. I could not be happier and would highly recommend Jenna as a broker to anyone." - Margo
