Testimonials

I purchased my first coop apt with Linette and hired her to sell it for us five years later. Linette helped us select finishes to upgrade the bathroom and staged the apartment using our furniture and items she had in storage. She brought us an above ask offer within days of the apt coming on the market (before the open house) and we received multiple strong offers the first two weeks. She carefully helped us evaluate the potential buyers’ financials and worked diligently with the buyer’s broker to prepare the board package. I feel very comfortable recommending Linette to friends because of her honesty and expert knowledge of value. When I was searching for an apartment she was always able to correctly guess the trading price within $5K. I wanted that experience when it came time to sell my unit and she put together a detailed and thoughtful presentation on comparables in market. She’s hard-working and direct; she’ll hustle to fit a tight timeline and give you her opinion even if it’s not what is in the best interest of an immediate deal.

Doug and I couldn’t have been more pleased with how you handled the sale of our apartment at the Whitby. You saw the potential in our studio and provided detailed guidance on how to get the best price. Once we had completed the necessary renovations and staging, you quickly found two excellent potential buyers. We were thrilled to get the high asking price!

Buying an apartment in NYC is NOT easy. We were so lucky to have Linette guiding us through the process. She helped us make a solid offer on an apartment we did not want to lose, and we won the bid. With her expertise, we submitted a very strong board package and were approved by the co-op. Describing her as “thorough” is an understatement....Linette left nothing to chance. This was not a quick process, and there were many moments where Linette had to help keep us from going crazy. She knows the market, how to get her buyers approved by the board, and most importantly, she knows how to handle pressure when there are inevitable challenges or delays. I *LOVE* our apartment, and am so grateful to Linette for helping make our dreams come true.

We were looking for an apartment for our son for almost two years. When we began our search, we had a hard time finding an agent, as we quickly realized that most NYC agents didn’t want to spend time interacting with all the questions a novice investor, like us, asks. Fortunately for us, we met Linette at her listing. She was friendly and a truly remarkable agent -extremely patient in showing us place after place and was always available for a quick call or text. She was also very informative about the process of buying a coop as a co-purchase. With her help, our family found the right apartment in Gramercy Park and we were able to check off every box on our wish list and truly love our new place. With multiple offers on our apartment, Linette strategically guided us through the bidding war and helped us win it. In the process, we got to know Linette’s family and I am proud to say we now call them our friends. We feel confident in recommending Linette to all our friends and know they will never be disappointed.

Linette helped me buy a great apartment and I love it. She was excellent! Really responsive, reliable and trustworthy. She knows the market and gets things done. I’d definitely use her again and would recommend her to all.

Linette is THE BEST!!! When I needed to relocate from London to New York on really short notice, I was keen to outsource my apartment hunt (whilst micromanaging it from afar). My buddy recommended Linette to me and shortly after that I was giving Linette my extremely long list of needs. Linette immediately set about finding a place that met my needs in the sweltering New Yorkian August heat (which is beyond unbearable) whilst also being highly pregnant. To further challenge Linette, I continually kept adjusting my budget downward and my requirements upward (now I sound like a nightmare client!). Despite this, Linette patiently filmed and sent me videos of each apartment she viewed on my behalf and spent hours counselling me about the market, what to expect, neighbourhoods, etc. Within a short time, Linette found my ideal place and set it up so that the day after I landed, I received my apartment keys and moved in! Linette is the ultimate turnkey solution to real estate in NYC and I could never recommend or trust anyone when it comes to NYC real estate more!!! Thanks Linette!!!

I moved to NYC in November 2015, and Linette helped me find an apartment and sign a lease all the way from Texas! She was very honest and hard-working, responsive, efficient, and cared so much about finding me a comfortable home in the city. I am so grateful that I was put in touch with Linette, and will always continue to recommend her to my family and friends.
