"The real estate market has always been tough to navigate, especially the past few years. Agencies vying for listings & prospects. The internet blurring the lines between realistic property listings. It comes back to relationships and establishing trust with who you're working with. Zoya and her team had a comfortability factor that others didn't. She knows the market, knew what we wanted and didn't try to push us in any direction that strayed from that. We bough our our first house last May with her help. Having no idea how it all worked, she walked us through everything and was accessible. People don't answer their phones these days. She did, no matter how trivial our questions were or how stressed our we were when it came time for negotiation. It wasn't a fun process but she was in it with us. It made all the difference. We love our home and can't thank her enough for making it happen.." - 0rsini

"We got referred to Zoya through a friend late last year. From the very beginning Zoya made an effort to get to know us and what we’d need in a home. It made all the difference in the world. We visited a lot of houses and she’d always point out things we didn’t know we’d want or things we definitely wouldn’t want. When we went into the search, we thought we’d end up with a house completely different than the house we ended up with. Zoya helped us really understand what we were looking for. Zoya also knows how important speed is in this market and spent many sessions looking week after week. When we got into a bidding war over a holiday, she guided us and worked tirelessly for us. When we got an offer accepted, she was able to use her contacts to get an inspection really quickly. I’m writing this from the house we ended up with and we couldn’t be happier. I can’t recommend Zoya enough. I really believe we wouldn’t have ended up with a house we love (or even a house) had it not been for how hard she worked for us." - Elliot

"Zoya was an incredible partner navigating our home purchase. She took the time to really get to know what our family needed, and was a constant resource for our endless questions. We couldn't recommend her highly enough. " -Dominique

"We recommend Zoya with no reservation! NYC/Westchester real estate is an incredibly competitive, frustrating and (sometimes, unfortunately) slimy business. For first time buyers especially, there is little transparency and it often feels like the cards are stacked against you. Everything is "take it or leave it." Zoya and her team are the rare diamonds in the rough who don't act like typical real estate agents!!! They actually took the time to work with us and act like true advocates helping navigate this insane market. They got to know our design tastes, our lifestyle needs and also ended up spending a lot of time with our daughter during our house search. They have an impressive knowledge of the westchester and NYC market place and could spot and call trends as they unfolded in real time. For some perspective- we were house hunting for OVER 1 YEAR and bid on 15+ properties with Zoya and team before they placed us in our perfect home! We had some very competitive bidding wars (and contentious sellers on occasion) and I truly believe many other real estate agents would have simply given up and moved on to focus on finding an "all cash" buyer, but they understood our vision and were incredibly patient and supportive during the entire process. Their response time to emails and texts is incredible and they are more than happy to answer questions regarding financing, renovations, legal questions, etc etc.. Cannot rate them highly enough!" - Daniel Ryan

"Zoya was great to work with, very responsive and thoughtful in her advice. She went the extra mile to help me purchase a condo in NY while I was living in CA. Her local knowledge and connections were invaluable." - Kkmayo

★★★★★
"We are so glad we found Zoya. She was amazing during the whole house search process, outstanding local knowledge, always available, quick responses, never pushy. The buying process was a breeze, she was always going the extra mile, from negotiating items that came out of the inspection to coordinate the process with the attorney and sellers. Zoya keeps kindly helping us even after we moved in, sharing her trusted connections, we are first time homeowners after all." - James Anderson Cunha

"We hired Adam and Zoya after interviewing SEVERAL brokers. My husband is a real estate attorney and we’ve sold and bought a total of 5 homes. We were no longer spring chickens and had experienced enough incompetence in the broker realm to know exactly what we were looking for and we weren’t going to settle. Adam and Zoya came right over and it was love at first sight. It was clear if we hired them we would get and incredibly competent duo. What we didn’t realize at the time was how amazingly tenacious and knowledgeable they were when it came to marketing and negotiating our sale. We had previously taken our own (really beautiful if we do say so ourselves) pictures when we attempted (and failed miserably) to sell our house on our own. Nonetheless Zoya insisted they take new ones with their photographer at their expense. We were blown away by what they produced. Further, they knew exactly when to strategically list our house and set up an open house on the perfect day, striking when the iron was hot. The morning of the open house, Zoya came over and neurotically fluffed every pillow, refolded every blanket, and straightened every vase. I might have fallen in love right then and there if my husband hadn’t been home. Within 6 days, we had several offers. We were eager to accept a particularly strong one but Adam and Zoya encouraged us to be patient and boy did that pay off. Literally. We ended up selling WELL over ask, thanks to Adam and Zoya’s incredibly savvy negotiating skills. Selling a house is a stressful time but we found that we looked forward to our meetings with Adam and Zoya. There was a lot of laughing. Zoya and Adam find a way to be both incredibly professional and totally personable. Further, no silly question, call, or text (from my husband-all my questions were very valid) ever went unanswered. We hope we have found our forever home but if we ever need to list our house again, Adam and Zoya will be hearing from us. Once you go Adam and Zoya, you don’t go back." - jannawohl

"As first-time home buyers, we were nervous about navigating the complex purchasing process, particularly with the Westchester market as crazy as it was at the time. Zoya was an absolute pleasure to work with - she is a true expert in every area of the Westchester real estate market and helped us to feel confident and comfortable in all of the choices we were making for the very first time. She gave great advice, was a passionate advocate on our behalf, and ultimately got us the perfect house for us. She consistently went above and beyond the call, answering our frantic early morning texts right away and putting our minds at ease. I would recommend Zoya to anyone looking to buy - she is the best!" - Z

"Zoya Litinetskaya is an extraordinary realtor. My wife and I feel blessed to have met her. She helped us search for and buy our new house as well as sell our old house, and the entire process was smoother than we could ever have imagined. One of the great benefits of working with Zoya is that she knows EVERYONE. Because of her, we had a great lawyer, bank, and even a painter/handyman. She’s also a joy to work with. Friendly and fun, all while being a total pro. One of the easiest recommendations we could give." - Dan Broden

"Zoya and Adam were brilliant and wonderful realtors for several reasons. First, Zoya brings a beautiful warm energy to the process which initially led me to feel I could trust her in the complex process of readying and selling the home I had lived in for over 25 years. Second, Zoya and Adam complement each other and Adam has very wise marketing strategies that resulted in a super quick sale of my house. Third, their work ethic enabled them to speedily ready my house for a quick sale in my absence. How amazing is that. Fourth, they staged my home so beautifully and had such excellent photos on line that I felt like I wanted to buy it myself. They saw the strengths in the house and property and knew just how to present them in compelling photos and actual restaging the house. Fifth, their communication with me could not have been better. We talked and texted and even though I was in Florida at the time the house went on the market, I felt I was well informed every step of the way. Sixth, they priced my house very wisely and as a result it sold for over asking in a final request for last and best offers from potential buyers. We accepted an offer four days after it was first listed and were in contract immediately. They vetted all potential buyers and offered their thought on the finances of the final two competing offers. I could continue to list their strengths and skills, but instead I will close my review with the following comment. I am deeply grateful to Zoya and Adam for their assistance and their guidance in the sale of my home. I can recommend them as realtors with no reservations and a huge round of applause!!!"

"Zoya was incredibly lovely to work with. She was real, honest and always, always available. She worked with us during one of the hardest transitions of our lives (having a toddler and a new baby come during the pandemic) and always kept our needs in mind and showed us homes that got us to our new home as fast and painlessly as possible. She easily recalled details that both my husband and I wanted in a home and when it came down to sourcing the rest of the crew to help us along the way, we knew we could count on her. She is extremely hard-working but also a real pleasure to be around during such a tumultuous time in life! She takes her time and was always there for us, even after we bought a home. Her and her team are great and I would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling! We will for sure be working with them again in the future!" - Frida I Matute

★★★★★
"Zoya went above and beyond what I would have expected from an agent. She connected me to vendors who were all fast and reliable, which made my life a lot easier. She was also willing to be on the property for inspections, reinspections etc. when I wasn’t able to and continued to be helpful even after we closed. Zoya stayed in constant communication throughout the whole process (nights, weekends, during her vacation). I highly recommend the Adam Zoya team." - InjySullivan0 ★★★★★
"Adam and Zoya are true professionals. Very easy to work with and extremely trustworthy and knowledgeable in the real estate community in the Upper West Side of NYC. They worked very well with our co-op board and we’re always very responsive to any questions and concerns we had! Highly recommend them!!!" "-zuser20160725103648295 NY, NY

""Zoya and Adam were an excellent team! We could not recommend them more highly. We first connected with Zoya when we were looking at a property represented by her and Adam. We did not end up making an offer on that property, but could tell she had an eye for the modern yet classic aesthetic Hannah and I loved. She also was someone we got along well with and that means a lot during the stressful process of buying a home.
Here are the reasons you should really should look no further for your real estate agent:
Negotiation:
Zoya is a total pro. I am new to home buying, but I work in M&A and I am no stranger to negotiation. Zoya was incredibly skilled at gaming out negotiations and getting the best possible outcome. I am confident her skills ultimately saved us many thousands of dollars. No pressure: She showed us a number of properties. She never pushed us and was very patient with us (we are new home buyers so we had a lot to learn). We found a home that we were on the fence about buying. The decision to make an offer came down to Zoya’s recommendation. She could have easily pushed us in the direction of buying the property after a long search, but instead she read that we were not that excited and told us to hold off: “This was not the house.” I felt like she had our interests at heart and it saved us from making what I feel now would have been a terrible decision.
Support:
Zoya and Adam helped us sort through the process of not just buying the home, but finding contractors and identifying costs pre-acquisition. We ended up working with an excellent group of contractors who renovated our home at a fair price and followed Adam/Zoya’s many tips for how to increase our home’s value.
Navigating Mortgage:
The home buying process is an absolute nightmare. Hannah and I are both self employed and as I now know banks don’t like self employed individuals. Beyond self employment, I have extremely complex tax returns. Most mortgage brokers could not navigate my returns. We had a number of brokers turn us down. Long story short, we lost confidence in our ability to get through the process. I was sure this lost confidence would impact Zoya’s interest in working with us. I believe I was rather transparent about the difficulty of the process and Zoya was very encouraging. She never doubted our ability to pull it together and referred us to a number of contacts that helped us resolve our issues.
Decent People:
Zoya and Adam are just good people. They are good people in an industry dominated by people with questionable character. Even when I got COVID (long after we closed on the house), Zoya came by and dropped off food on the porch.
What is the moral of the story? Hire Zoya and Adam. I really don’t think you can do better."

"As first time home buyers in this tumultuous housing market we were honestly preparing for a stressful house hunt. We are so grateful we found Zoya, she made the entire process a breeze. Zoya went above and beyond throughout every step. From our initial meeting she put us at ease and took the time to get to know what our family needs are. Her local knowledge is unparalleled, she was always one step ahead to ensure we were making an informed decision. With Zoya’s expertise, we were able to buy our first home in our desired neighborhood within our preferred timeframe! Even after closing, Zoya has continued to provide us with contacts and neighborhood information to help make our house purchase truly feel like home. Highly recommend working with Zoya!" -fllaurel
