Bianka 's Testimonials

writes:

It was an absolute pleasure working with Bianka on the sale of our apartment in Manhattan. She consistently provided excellent guidance and advice and exuded a level of patience that could calm the most worrisome of sellers. Bianka was and is extremely knowledgeable about the market, area and other professionals within the field. We trusted her completely throughout this process and she was extremely professional, personable, honest and diligent. Anyone would be lucky to work with Bianka

Bianka helped me sell a studio apartment in Kips Bay/Murray Hill and represented me in a new sale on the upper west side. Bianka is awesome to work with and knows the market (particularly east midtown). She brought in an excellent photographer and helped me set up my apartment to look most appealing (without having to spend $$ on staging) which contributed to a strong sales price. Highly recommended!

I am writing to give Bianka Yankov my highest recommendation. Bianka possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent broker: she knows her market extremely well; she is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with her clients. Bianka is both very professional and personable. She clearly takes pride in doing a good job. Bianka represented me both with purchase and buying new apartment. We received offer on first open house and quickly afterwards sold apartment above asking price. She provided thorough guidance through entire process and has a network of professionals in other areas that makes whole process much easier. Is it that you need interior designer, or tax consultant or mortgage broker or attorney or contractor, Bianka recommended top notch proffessionals. To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Bianka and her expertise and we recommend her to everyone.

Bianka was a pleasure to work with, so much so that she was our real estate agent when we were renting all the way through our purchase and sale our first apartment. We always felt she had our best interest in mind as she gave us very candid advice knowing the market and the intricacies of buying in Manhattan. She was always professional and quick to respond during the entire process. She also helped make all the paperwork and steps to buying and selling seamless. Because of our great experience working with Bianka over the years, we had a friend work with her on his apartment purchase and he was also very pleased. If we ever make any future real estate transactions in Manhattan, Bianka will always be our first choice.

Bianka was wonderful! Somehow she made the stressful process of moving in NYC an enjoyable experience. She''s positive, patient, professional, extremely knowledgeable about NYC real estate and fun to hang out with. I recommend her to all my friends now.
 

Monica S writes:

I’ve lived in New York for 17 years now and I’ve moved 7 times – 5 rentals and 2 coop purchases. I have to say that from all the interactions that I’ve had with real estate professionals Bianka really stands out with her professionalism and ability to understand the needs of her clients. Bainka was my broker on the sale on my previous apartment and the purchase of my current apartment. She was instrumental in preparing, advertising and showing my apartment in a way that got me the best offer in less that a week – the price was almost 40% higher than what I had paid for the apartment and is still the highest price for this size apartment in that building. Her efficiency and professionalism showed equally in my search and purchase of a new apartment. Bianka understood exactly what I was looking for and always offered very helpful comments without being pushy or trying to influence my decision in any way. I found exactly what I wanted and with her help was able to purchase my dream apartment. I would highly recommend Bianka both to people that are new to the city and need an honest opinion and advise on rental or purchase, and to people that have been living in the area and know exactly what they are looking for. You will receive advice and professional service superior to any you have ever had before.

We were delighted with the results of working with Bianka as our listing agent. We took her wise advice on quick changes to make to our apartment before selling, and the Spire team did an amazing job with photographs, a virtual tour, and marketing, even getting the apartment featured as an "open house to visit" by DNAinfo. We were hoping to sell our apartment quickly before an overseas move and the offer we accepted, above our asking price, came in within the first 10 days of listing. Bianka not only made our sale a great success but she is kind and pleasant to work with and we recommend her without hesitation.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the excellent job you did and for making the experience of selling our property In Manhattan through Spire agency pleasurable. From the start you made us feel at ease and kept us informed through every step. The honesty, professionalism and advice you gave us was greatly appreciated. The auction and the experience of selling our property exceeded our expectations as we got 10% over the asking price

It was an absolute pleasure working with Bianka on both selling my apartment in Manhattan and purchasing a new apartment in Brooklyn. She was completely on top of her game and extremely professional yet personable. She gave me perfect advice on what to do to get the most money on the apartment I was selling without costing me a lot up front and at the same time found me the ideal new home in Brooklyn for an amazing price. Bianka was actually pregnant when we started working together and even through having a baby, she never missed a beat or was out of contact - even on the day of her delivery. It was truly impressive!! I can't say enough about how great my experience was working with her and I would love to work with Bianka in the future.

Bianka helped us sell our apartment in Manhattan. We received an offer on our place at the asking price in couple of weeks. Bianka staged the apartment and got it ready for sale in a week. She was extremely proactive and very responsive. Also her knowledge of coop''s and the board approval process was instrumental in a smooth and on time closing.
 

Jill Howard writes:

I am happy to recommend Bianka Yankov as a professional and knowledgeable real estate sales agent. During my initial meeting with her she prepared an entire plan with comps, sample flyers and her marketing plan. She was aware of the current trends in the market and worked with us to set an attractive but fair market price. While setting up open houses or private showings she was always very accommodating . She spent a lot of time with potential buyers answering questions and building trust. After each showing she always followed up to inform us of how many people attended and any comments that the potential buyers had. Within three months we had several offers. The negotiations and closing were also seamless thanks to her diligence.

I write to advise you of my great experiences with Bianka Yankov of Spire Group. I first met Bianka Yankov in 2010 when I responded to express my interest in one of her apartment listings in Manhattan. I spend a day looking for apartments with her and quickly realized that she knows Manhattan like the back of her hand. She knew all of the buildings I would be interested in and told me exactly what to expect in each before we even arrived. We did not find what I was looking for immediately, because I am a tough sell, In total, we saw about a dozen apartments and the one I actually selected was a building Bianka recommended outside my search area. It had everything I wanted and more, which only a person with her experience could know. In short, I was very happy to get what I wanted and more in only two days. It only made sense then that when my sister wanted to move to Manhattan the next year, we used Bianka. Same story. Very knowledgeable, professional, and committed to finding exactly what we wanted, which she did—again in only two days. I recently moved again to a new apartment, and used Bianka a third time. I could repeat the accolades above, but needless to say it was the same all over again, knowledgeable, professional, and committed. Each time, she got me and my sister great apartments, more than we expected, within our budgets, and in only a short time. Bianka is the guru of Manhattan Real Estate, and an absolute pleasure to work with. Kind, helpful, respectful, patient, responsive (any day of the week), and always willing to go the extra mile. I recommend everyone I know to her and would do the same for anyone looking for an apartment in Manhattan. If you want the best apartment for your money and a broker that will take care of everything for you with a smile and old-fashioned customer service, call Bianka. I will not hesitate to use her again and highly recommend her to anyone.
