CB - Buyer"Alison helped me buy and sell my NYC apartment. I trusted her immediately. Over the 13 years of ownership, she and I stayed in contact. She became my friend, and there was no question at all as to who I would work with when it was time for me to sell. Alison helped me procure top dollar in record time. I am grateful for her work, her hustle, and most importantly, her integrity and friendship." Lauren T. - SellerWow! Weren't we lucky! You were terrific in helping to make it happen. We'll be forever grateful! - Niki F. and Dr. Joel H. - BuyerAlison made buying a NYC apartment a pleasure for my wife and I. First, she got to know exactly what was important to us and started to show us only places that fit. She understood that I need data so she often sent me important market data and analysis. We live most of the year in Florida, it was important to be efficient when we were in town to see places. Alison got to know our tastes and neighborhood preferences in no time and narrowed down our search quickly. She only contacted us when there was a close match. After many months of patience, Alison found what she thought was the perfect place for us. She was absolutely right! It was perfect and we bought it immediately. We are so excited about our NYC apartment and thankful that we had such a perfect professional to guide us and look out for us. I highly recommend Alison to anyone looking for an outstanding NYC agent. - BuyerAlison was a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of the market and clear sales plan was key for me. She has a good eye for design, creating expert staging that really helped to show the apartment at its best to secure multiple offers quickly. I have no hesitation in recommending Alison’s services to my friends. AKP - SellerAlison worked with us to find exactly what we were looking for. She was hard working, friendly and found my family the perfect apartment. We couldn't be happier and we will certainly use her in the future. - BuyerWe found you to be both highly professional and personable - a pleasure to work with. Your prompt response to our needs and concerns, your suggestion of the most effective strategies, your attention to detail - both paperwork and photography of our apartment - are very much appreciated. - Seller
