A Co-op With Elbow Room, The Times covers my work again!

buyer's brokerThe New York Times' The Hunt covers the often intense ups and downs of people searching for homes in New York City. For the second time this year, I'm privileged to have my clients profiled. It was an exhausting apartment hunt that I brokered, poetically culminating full circle, with my customers Evan and Natalie buying the apartment literally across the hallway from the one where I had met them months earlier, at an open house for one of my exclusives at 350 E 77th Street. It was a real roller-coaster of a search. Times writer Joyce Cohen tells the whole story in A Co-op With Elbow Room, in today's Real Estate section.

We saw over 50 Upper East Side apartments, had three accepted offers, with wrenching disappointments as two of them didn't work out. Throughout the process, I built a strong client relationship with Evan and Natalie. Few things motivate me to be on my best game more than the loyalty and sincere appreciation of customers like these. They relied heavily on my expertise as I helped to guide them through a fairly complex maze of available inventory. Helping to validate coop values, making strategically savvy offers, negotiating well, and closing on a great value for them. We encountered everything from difficult coops to sellers rescinding their acceptance. In the end we had a few laughs, and great satisfaction as we closed on their perfect, first, NYC home.
