" Lindsay and Maya were excellent to work with and the teamwork made it easy to reach and schedule showings, inspections, and other necessary appointments. They were very knowledgeable about the area, always available to show us houses or answer any questions we had throughout the process, including after the closing. They both went well above and beyond the home purchase aspect alone with recommendations on yard work, childcare, and handyman services in our new neighborhood. Furthermore, they were even able to get us a discount on a new washer and dryer after we moved in, they gave us baby gifts for our newborn, and they even held the baby during our home closing. Truly was much more than we expected from our realtors. I would recommend them and certainly would use them for future real estate needs. " - Steve, Trang and Zoe

"We very much enjoyed working with Lindsay. She is professional, hard-working and responsive, and also a lovely person to be around, all of which made our home purchase experience a very pleasant one. We are grateful for all her help and highly recommend her." - Tanja B.

"Working with Maya far exceeded any expectations. She was able to clearly understand and embrace my very specific (and hard to find!) wants, which led to an incredibly efficient house search. I also had access to off market homes I would never have been able to see on my own. I couldn't be more thrilled with the whole experience!" - Alaleh A.

"Maya was absolutely fantastic to work with. She and Lindsay were always available to show us houses, answer our questions throughout the process, and went well above and beyond the home purchase aspect alone with recommendations on yard work, childcare, and handyman services in our new neighborhood. Furthermore, Maya was able to get us a discount on a new washer and dryer after we moved in, they gave us baby gifts for our newborn, and she even held the baby during our home closing. Truly was much more than we expected from our agent. I would recommend her/them and certainly would use them for future real estate needs." - Steven S.

"Maya and her colleagues Ari and Lindsay from the Compass office in Dobbs Ferry are amazing! In one week, they listed my home, took photos, held an open house and found me an amazing tenant. I've used other real estate companies before but I will never use any other company other than Compass and particularly, Maya and Lindsay. Words fail to express how truly impressed and humbled I am by them."
