Testimonials

From my clients

Alex is fantastic! He is representing me and my husband as a buyer's broker on a townhouse in Harlem, and I have been impressed with him throughout the process. He has been extremely friendly and responsive to us as well as everyone we have encountered. He has worked hard at building relationships with everyone involved, and has been doing some expert negotiation - the seller accepted our initial offer and is also giving us a substantial credit towards repairs of the items that came up in the inspection - without risking the deal, which is now officially in contract. Naturally, we looked to him to sell our condo, which has been listed less than a week and has already received a ton of interest due to his expert marketing tactics. Alex has worked hard to make sure we are happy, and we know he will continue to do so - we know are in great hands and are so glad that we have Alex on our team! HIGHLY recommended!

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to express my satisfaction with Joan DeRoche as a Realtor. As a first time buyer, a New York City buyer, I spent about 8 months on my own doing research on the market. But once I was put in contact with Joan, she really helped accelerate the process of vetting and searching and analyzing for my new home in NYC.

Throughout the entire process Joan was professional, conscientious, and motivated. She ALWAYS made me feel as though I was her only client and she was constantly available around the clock. (even during her vacations). She was patient and very thorough with details and diligently checked multiple sources to verify things for me from pricing to location to closing details etc. Most importantly, Joan is a New Yorker with good contacts and thorough knowledge of the UWS housing market. Consequently, she supported me in the purchase of my home in New York City.

I would be delighted to answer any specific questions regarding Joan’s performance and recommend Joan as a realtor.

Thank you

"My closing was kind of difficult for many reasons; working with Joan made the whole difference and thanks to her I was able to finally close the deal.

I would never think of calling someone else for my next apartment purchase; she has my highest recommendation and trust."

To Whom it May Concern,

I have only compliments to describe Joan’s abilities as a real estate person. Having discovered her through the sale of an apartment in the building that I was renting from at the time, I reached out to Joan when it came time for my wife and me to purchase an apartment. As first-time home buyers seeking a two-three bedroom co-op in Manhattan with a modest budget, we knew our search would be a huge—if not impossible—challenge. However, Joan took this on with confidence and spent countless weekends with us until we were able to find the home that would serve us and our future family for years to come. Furthermore, she carefully walked us through the tedious process of purchasing a home in New York City. Even beyond the search, she was absolutely instrumental in negotiating our interests and with those of the sellers and co-op board such that we secured the purchase and were able to move in last summer!

She emanates a sense of trust-worthiness through experience and kindness that lends security during what is, without a doubt, a very involved process. Joan is a true professional in every sense of the word and puts her clients’ interests first. I would happily give Joan my highest recommendation for anyone desiring to sell their property or buy one. Her in-depth knowledge of the New York City real estate market combined with her numerous professional and personal contacts in the business positions her to take advantage of opportunities for her clients. This sets her apart from all her fellow realtors. Please feel free to contact me for further reference.

Joan DeRoche recently helped us to sell our two bedroom coop in the Upper West Side. My wife and I were extremely impressed with Joan right from the start. She simply took the time to listen! We explained our objectives, and she immediately understood what we had in mind. Joan provided us with invaluable advice as to how to show our apartment and target the right audience. Her tips paid off right away, and we ended up with multiple offers. Only a year before her involvement, we had extremely bad results with other realtors. Joan truly made a difference. Her style, demeanor, and projection are extremely impressive. We are extremely satisfied with her services and will definitely recommend her to any property seller. They will be in the best hands!”

It is with great pleasure to share in what has been an impactful, prosperous and exciting experience in working with Wendy Lee for my home acquisition and overall advisory needs. Wendy is an industry expert, in addition to the vast understand and keen awareness of the market, she exemplifies integrity, professionalism and stewardship in her profession. I have been working with Wendy for the past 10 years and she's done an outstanding job of not only educating me the Manhattan real estate market, but anticipating my future needs.

Wendy helped locate the building of my current residence, in which it turned out to be my dream apartment! Although this building was not on my radar, but given my objectives and her terrific listening skills, she went above and beyond to locate such a unit. Furthermore, after locating such unit, and performing additional research on the building, she strongly suggested I wait for a different line in the building. At that very moment, I knew I had a collaborative thinker on my team for my real estate desires.

Throughout the years, I'm happy to say that I’ve not only continued to work with Wendy, but have relied on her for real time, current market insight and perspective as it relates to my particular situation. Time in and time out, she's always available for discussion and I’m pleased to say that she's added much profit to my real estate holdings in Manhattan.

It is my pleasure to share my experience in working with Wendy Lee on my recent apartment sale.

Wendy was a true partner in every sense of the word. From her expert counsel on pricing and sales strategy, to her innovative approach to marketing, to her collaboration with other brokers, to helping with the prepping and staging of the apartment, she did it all and more.

She also made an onerous process so much easier by setting expectations, anticipating our needs, being flexible and communicating with us every step of the way.

I always felt that Wendy had our best interests at heart, including when, at one point, she suggested that we might want to postpone the sale due to certain factors beyond our control, even though it might have compromised her commission. That showed true partnership and integrity.

As evidenced above, my experience in working with Wendy was overwhelmingly positive in every respect and I would recommend her wholeheartedly to other apartment owners and seekers.
