"Jackpot. Winning the lottery. Dumb luck. These are the terms my husband and I regularly use when we talk about how we managed to land Usha as our realtor. We purchased our first home through her -- an extremely competitive property that had a multitude of offers that were likely better than ours -- and have no doubt that it was because of Usha's efforts that we acquired it. We had very little experience going in, but from the beginning of our search, Usha worked tirelessly and patiently with us (all the more remarkable given that we started looking with her with a newborn who required constant nursing!), and made certain that we were well-informed and comfortable every step of the way. I could speak at length about her professionalism, responsiveness, intelligence, and unflagging commitment to finding you a home. I could also tell you that everyone we came across that had worked with her (sellers, lawyers, etc.) all commented on these exact traits and more, and spoke of her with utmost regard. But what I found most special about Usha was her unfailing positivity, which in turn never failed to buoy our spirits. There's no better way to put it: Usha is the Hermione Granger of Westchester real estate. We hope to buy and sell all our future properties through her." - Grace C.
"What most struck me about working with Usha was how smart she is. She really does her research, and is completely prepared to answer every question you might ask. She has a vast network of colleagues in Chappaqua, and the surrounding area, and as a result, she was able to get complicated things done in a very short period of time. For example, we looked at a house one morning, and by the afternoon, we had already been pre-approved for the mortgage, scheduled inspections, and had our bid accepted, all thanks to her contacts. Buying a house is a tough, tricky business, and despite how brutal it can get, you always feel as though Usha is on your side, looking out for you. She has a really good heart, which combined with her intelligence, makes her a truly unique real estate broker. I can't recommend working with her enough!" - Brienne W.
"We can't say enough good things about Usha Subramaniam. Usha and her family have been neighbors of ours in Chappaqua for many years. She a warm, caring, bright and incredibly energetic person who consistently goes above and beyond as a neighbor and an active member of the community. When it came time to buy a house for our daughter and her young family, we knew who we wanted at our side. As anticipated, she has gone above and beyond in helping us find just the right house for them in Mt. Kisco. Usha knows people as well as she knows houses and the real estate market, which is saying a lot. She is always positive and upbeat. She understood clearly what we were looking for and what our budget was. We are not the easiest clients, and this was never going to be the biggest of deals, but Usha was always there for us -- through the search process, through the ups and downs that came with getting to contract and then to closing on a smaller, older house that was going to need some work. She was supportive, open and honest -- and did her best to keep us calm -- throughout. We love the house, even though there is still a lot of work to be done, and will always thank Usha for helping us pick it out and buy it. We would recommend her to anyone, without hesitation.
Usha is unlike any other realtor we've dealt with. She agreed to help us search for our home and was not deterred by the fact that we had already spent 2 unsuccessful years searching ourselves. Usha stayed positive and tirelessly searched to help us with our admittedly difficult wish list. We were excited to find the house we had been waiting for and Usha was quick to place our offer. Throughout the course of our time spent in contracts she communicated with us and the seller regularly and kept everyone in motion so that we would not lose our rate lock. Usha managed to help us close on time in a down-to-the-minute situation and we are thrilled to now own an amazing home. We highly recommend Usha!

"Extremely satisfied and happy with Usha's support to us. We are Expats into US, so I was steeling myself for a really hard time finding a home and setting things up. I wrote to 8-10 odd agents in the area seeking support to find a home, and Usha was the most responsive.
I would recommend Usha to anyone looking for home in the Westchester area for the following reasons:
1. She was the most responsive of 8-10 odd agents we reached out to in the area. She was very prompt on emails, phone making it easy for us to select our top picks much before we actually landed in the area. This upfront work helped us sign the lease on our home literally a day after we arrived in the US saving us time and hotel stay expenses, not to mention the mental peace that comes with finding a base.
2. Her local area knowledge and existing relationships make it easier to find the right home which compliments the lifestyle. She spent good amount of time initially in understanding our requirements, budget, priorities and throughout the process her recommendations for the home were based on the lifestyle we wanted to have, rather than just the home alone. This in hindsight is the BIGGEST reason I would go to her again and again (this is why perhaps just Zillow searches on the internet are not enough and one needs a REAL person/ agent). It's little things like - this house is by a nature trail, avoid this area as no park nearby for your kid, heavy traffic on this road, etc that only a local person can help with, and in that regard Usha's knowledge is unmatched. As a result we now have a home that's working for us holistically as against just finding us " roof over our heads".
3. When we arrived in the US, she again spent considerable time with us driving around various towns and showing us simple things like local schools, train station, eateries, banks, etc. All this on day 1 made me very confident of my choice of location and house.
4. She knows the process inside out.
Thanks again Usha and Houlihan Lawrence you're very lucky to have her!! She believes in Human Connect first and foremost and I wish more agents imbibe the same Mantra. - Help the clients find a home that brings their whole lifestyle together rather than just a house

"Usha was extremely easy to work with and responsive, and we found our home 48 hours after contacting her. She expertly helped us navigate the home buying process. Her professionalism and thorough approach allowed us to understand the full history of the home prior to our purchase. She went consistently above and beyond her job to put us at ease and address our concerns. She has a positive personality coupled with a forward leaning businsss mind that helps buyers navigate the market. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to first time or experienced home buyers" - Zahra
"We just bought our very 1st house and Usha was a tremendous help, helping us navigate through an unsuspected long process, giving us tips and people to contact... Everything went really smoothly and we realized how important it is to have a great agent to help you! As a person, she is very nice and funny and would always quickly answer any questions we would mail. Great experience!

"Usha is a terrific broker! By working with her, you will find smooth communication, efficient responses, and, most importantly, insights of the target property that you cannot simply achieve online. She is always very honest with the pros and cons of a property and will present those to you for your overall consideration. When it’s going to my bidding, our case is almost the “worst” case — we were bumped out two times after the sellers accepting our offers. Usha was being very supportive all the time. Advocating the best interest of her clients, she provided very practical suggestions on my offerings. She coordinated tirelessly and efficiently between the sellers and never pushed me to bid blindly when there was a bidding war. (Believe it or not, some brokers push hard just to get their commission ASAP without caring your best interest.) Usha also did a lot out of her duty for us as a courtesy and her service definitely exceeded our expectations. I am glad I chose Usha as my broker at the very beginning. She is a person that you not only want to work with but also build a long term friendship with. I strongly recommend Usha."
