Testimonials

"Katya helped me and my wife find a great apartment when we had a tight time window for signing the lease as we were leaving later that night for a month-long trip out of the country. Katya guided us through a difficult board approval process that required unexpected new documents while we were traveling abroad, ensuring that we were able to move in upon the return of our trip. We highly recommend her services due to her work ethic and thoroughness."

-Sean P.

“Katya was incredibly helpful in my purchase of a coop property with her professional, insightful advice and smooth facilitation and communication among many parties involved. She was easily reachable and readily available throughout a complex process. Katya consistently handled all the matters in a constructive manner and without delay, and was generally a pleasure to work with. I am very glad I have had her as my agent.’

---Diloro K.

“Katya was extremely helpful in renting my apartment in the summer 2018. Her market knowledge helped me identify a right price. Her numerous meetings with my potential tenants did not follow business hours pattern: they were on Sundays and Saturdays, during rush hours and evenings. After each meeting Katya immediately reported the outcome. I believe her intelligence and her soft skills created a win-win situation for all the parties.”

- Mike K.

.“Katya helped me find my first apartment in New York when I moved there from London during the autumn of 2017. She is a highly personable and attentive real estate agent who dedicated a significant amount of time and effort searching for an apartment that met my and my partner’s requirements. Having such a hard-working and responsible agent helped my apartment search be a quicker and smoother process than I had initially thought. I highly would recommend Katya to anyone searching for an apartment in New York” .

“I appreciate Cindy's efforts in regards to the purchase of my co-op apartment very much. Since the first time we met, she often went above and beyond to meet all of my requests and to answer my never-ending questions. It was not an easy process as a first-time purchaser, but it went well because Cindy had my best interest and gave me the support when I needed it. She would give objective opinions and would guide me in the right direction to make my own decision. I would recommend Cindy for your real estate needs in the Greater New York area.”

“My husband and I felt the need to be very careful in our selection of a broker to represent us in the sale of our co-op, which is comprised of a board that is careful in their own ways about approving buyers. We felt Lance stood out and understood what it would take to help us and he proved us right. He was proactive and careful throughout the process and we ended up achieving our goals. The board is happy, the buyers are happy and we are happy. Many thanks, Lance!”

“Cindy is a warm, active, and knowledgeable real estate professional that I had great pleasure working with. I met Cindy through a common friend and worked with her in finding a place to own about a year later. She offered no only plentiful options to consider as a start but also solid advice on research on one's own, bidding, process, and contracting. She also suggested great professionals to process the paperwork to make everything smooth. Plus, she responded to any questions promptly with helpful answers or recommendations. I liked her because she always made sure she fully understood my needs first before recommending anything. She never pushed me to make decisions against my will but remembered to remind me of important deadline. I would highly recommend her to anyone who would appreciate a thoughtful agent who cares a lot about you rather than anything else.”

“I would like to provide a compliment to my assigned agent Cindy Chen. She has been extremely helpful and highly instrumental in clearing my doubts. The process of purchasing a new property can sometimes be a daunting one to navigate through and even more so for a foreign buyer. Cindy's clear and detailed explanations have however made the process a whole lot less intimidating. She is a very genuine individual who places the interest of her clients above all else. I am extremely impressed also by her responsiveness and willingness to assist her clients. I truly am wowed!”

“I found Lance to be very effective. When we first worked with Lance we took our apartment off the market for personal reasons, even though we had good offers. Later we re-listed it with Lance and he found a buyer within a week. He is very responsive to the client's needs and although I live in Miami, Lance kept us up to date on all aspects of the listing. I highly recommend Lance to anyone looking for a Realtor in NYC.”

“I had a great experience with Lance Levine as a broker. Even though he became my broker by default (as I was working with no broker and he was on the seller's side), he was very helpful to me. He was very responsive in terms of all the questions I asked him throughout the transaction without being pushy. He seemed to be fair and served both the seller's interests and mine to ensure we reached a fair deal in the end.”

“My daughter purchased her very first home in Manhattan through Lance Levine. My husband and I first met Mr. Levine two years ago when we looked into buying in NYC. Then, we contacted him again last January. We were very impressed by his professionalism and availability. He was calm and knowledgeable at all times. He e-mailed us articles about buying a coop versus a condo. He responded to our e-mails and questions promptly and provided us with all the necessary information so we could make intelligent decisions. He submitted cost estimates, did multiple paperwork, most notably, helping our daughter put together the co-op package thereby relieving her with the stress of completing it on time for her contract deadline. He was remarkably thorough and helpful putting together the board package. The guidance he provided to our daughter was invaluable. We had the utmost trust in him. It was clear his vast experience enabled him to make the process as seamless as possible. He is truly an asset to your organization. Please take good care of him.”

“I am a transactional real estate attorney and have been practicing for thirty years. Years ago I met Lance while working on a deal for a client of mine that was looking to purchase an apartment where he was representing the seller. I was so taken by his dedication to the deal, his close attention to detail and his unwavering commitment to protect his client and from that point on we developed a great business relationship. Since that time we've worked on many deals together and have had many brainstorming sessions figuring out ways to ensure our clients received the ultimate protection they deserve. I have also referred multiple clients to Lance and they too are grateful for the combined protection we provide. Clients truly get an amazing all around service from Lance - more than I have seen from any other broker in the field. I look forward to working with him and his clients for many years to come.”

“Lance was terrific from day one. He explained the whole selling process and quickly came up with a strategy; executing it flawlessly. He broadcast the sale to the target buyers and multiple websites and had the open house within a few days. He kept me informed every step of the way and was always available by phone and email. He took care of every aspect and was dedicated to completing this process. I would highly recommend Lance for any real-estate transaction.

“Lance, it is not difficult to praise your handling of our affairs concerning the sale of our apartment. Choosing you as our broker in the sale of our CPW apartment was the best decision we could ever have made. You really exemplify the hardest working and most conscientious broker we have encountered. Your dedication to serve your client, and your attentiveness to detail, really exceeded our expectations. Thanks for being so good at what you do. Keep up the good work.”

-Alan & Maureen White

“I wish I would have listed my apartment with you in the beginning, Lance. Your marketing and sales strategy had action on my apartment right away and your follow up was suburb. Thank you for walking me through the process and making it an easy transaction.”

-Dan Ostermiller

“I hired Lance to sell my village apartment. I was very happy with his thorough and creative marketing strategy and most of all his determination to get my home sold. We sold quicker than I expected and he was right on with his pricing. I haven’t had great experiences with brokers in the past, but I felt comfortable with Lance and was able to sit back while he got the job done. I highly recommend him.”

-Michele S.

"Lance has been a terrific agent. He accurately estimated the rental value of my apartment, found several qualified tenants and shepherded the tenant we chose through the board qualification process. He recommended a house painter (who came to paint on the weekend), supervised the painting and organized the move in of the new tenant. The change of tenants was seamless. Lance has been a thoughtful, responsive and hardworking guy, overseeing this transaction from beginning to end. He will surely be in charge the next time I need a tenant."

-Jay Schnabolk

“Lance made my home purchase completely seamless. Having a top quality agent is the essential ingredient for a successful move and Lance had an intuitive understanding of what I was looking for and was highly proactive and efficient in moving the entire process forward, something which anyone who's dealt with real estate in Manhattan knows can be a big challenge. But important as it is to have the right broker, you'll inevitably need others to help you along the way. What differentiated Lance was the broad network of contacts that he could call upon to offer me invaluable services before, during and after my move. Whether it was an attorney, a mortgage broker, a moving company, a handyman, or even an interior designer, Lance was able to put me in touch with the right person for the job. Look no further. Lance is a one-stop shop for everything you need to navigate the Manhattan real estate market.”
