Ann was recommended to us by our co-op management company as an outstanding real estate agent in the Upper West Side. Before meeting Ann, we interviewed three other highly recommended agents, but Ann made a truly memorable first impression. She toured our apartment and almost immediately suggested what should be done to get it ready for the market. She pointed out that a walk-up apartment in a small brownstone would be a challenge, but she emphasized the pre-war charm of the unit and its park block location as features that would appeal to many. It was an easy decision to choose Ann over the other realtors we interviewed. She knew what needed to be done and had a plan for immediate action. Ann was very thorough in suggesting an initial offering price based on an extensive review of recent comparable sales and her own sense of local market conditions. She suggested a plan to stage the apartment that involved removal of several pieces of furniture and carpets to her storage unit and minimizing display of personal photographs and memorabilia. In addition, realizing that potential buyers might have difficulty obtaining financing for a unit in a small building, she secured a commitment from a bank to provide financing in our building if buyers were encountering difficulties securing loans. Ann’s team quickly produced attractive advertising materials for our unit including a video walk-through with Ann as the charming guide. After two open houses and several personal showings, we were amazed to receive a viable offer (after 3 weeks on the market), and a counteroffer suggested by Ann resulted in an accepted offer and contract. The closing went smoothly with the aid of an experienced lawyer recommended by Ann. What more can we say? Ann is an incredibly effective agent, very professional, highly experienced and a pleasure to work with!!
