"Samantha was my broker in the purchase of one apartment and the sale of another in 1025 Fifth Avenue. She is great - a tireless worker who really knows her business and attends to every detail with the utmost care. I recommend Samantha without reservation to anyone looking to buy or sell. You will be very well served."- Rich S.

"We first met Samantha when she represented the seller of the apartment we purchased in 2002. Samantha always stayed in touch with us for the 7 years we lived there. Then, during the tough market in 2009, we hired Samantha to list our apartment. Samantha got more than just the job done! She always operates with the highest level of integrity. As a result, we closed a few months ago while other apartments in our building are still sitting on the market. We found Samantha to be more thorough than most agents (for example, she provided a stager). She always offered expert advice, but never pushed too hard, and allowed us to make the decisions. She and her team were great to work with during a stressful time in NYC! " - Christine

"We really enjoyed working with you again and wanted to thank you for the extremely professional way in which you handled every stage. It's really such a pleasure working with you, and we feel extremely fortunate to have had you as our broker for both of the transactions involving this apt. And since it was a bit sad for us this time, we were glad that you made it as painless as possible!" - Fatemeh

"Samantha is a wonderful person to work with. I found her to be bright, energetic, very knowledgeable, and easy to get along with. I would recommend her without reservation to anyone looking for real estate in New York City; she's terrific." - Steven

"I have worked closely with Samantha on two projects and she has been expert, inventive, and unfailingly nice. She was a pleasure to work with, and has brought in excellent results. Samantha goes well beyond the extra mile and she does it with grace." - Peter

"We’ve worked w/ Samantha (a delight) repeatedly. She is incredibly conscientious and experienced, without being too pushy. Her perspective on the NYC real estate market is invaluable. With her hard work and creative marketing, we were able to sell our apartment in a difficult market at ask." - Jane

"Catherine is one of the best agents I know. She is creative, extremely hard working, and always professional while making sure everything reaches the best possible outcome-whether buying or selling. I highly recommend using her!" - Evelyn

"We are really impressed with how timely your responses have been. Thanks so much." - Mike

"Catherine was wonderful to work with. She helped us find the perfect home at a great price. Her negotiating skills were critical in getting us the concessions we needed to be able to purchase the home. She was always very prompt in returning phone calls and emails. She was also very knowledgeable with all of the things necessary in buying a home. I would definitely recommend." - Kara

"Catherine was such a joy to work with. She is professional, responsible, and has a great work ethic. I was truly impressed with her as an agent. She had a difficult task at hand in finding me a home, but she stuck by me until the very end. I can truly say that she knew exactly what I wanted and didn't rest until she found it for me. It wasn't easy but she did it." - Diane

Tools for Sellers:

Compass Concierge

Compass Concierge allows you to easily prepare your home for sale by fronting the cost of home improvement services like staging, painting and even renovations. No interest, no fees, and you pay the loan back upon closing! Take advantage of this wonderful option, which no other NYC brokerage firm can offer you.

Coming Soon

A unique pre-marketing opportunity, “Coming Soon,” allows us to reach potential purchasers prior to officially listing your home.This creates greater demand, builds anticipation, and provides us with valuable feedback with respect to market conditions, pricing, photos, and positioning of the property. When it is time to officially list your property, we have the advantage of having already preflighted your home.

Compass Insights

This tool provides key data points in order to craft a winning marketing strategy by gathering listing traffic information, as well as targeting specific audiences, so we can invest accordingly in creating maximum exposure for your home.

Compass Bridge Loans

Our loan program will grant security to sellers, allowing them to purchase their next home prior to the sale of their current residence. Well-staged vacant homes generally sell for more than occupied apartments. (The Bridge Loan program is in development and will be offered in the near future.)
