Geraldine was an absolute pleasure to work with. From beginning to end, she was attentive and listened carefully to my wants and needs. I was especially impressed with her ability to gently temper my expectations to account for market conditions. I greatly appreciated her diligence and persistence, working around my challenging schedule with patience and professionalism. I am confident in her ability to assist anyone I send her way, and would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone I know.
I cannot recommend Geraldine more highly for your next apartment search. She was truly incredible to work with! Looking for an apartment in NY is stressful and exhausting but Geraldine made me feel like she had my best interests in mind through the entire process. When listings were exclusive, she investigated to make sure I was getting the best deal if I went forward. When she noticed issues with an apartment, she voiced them to me immediately. If I really wanted to see a place, she did everything possible to get me in the door. If she thought I was getting ripped off, she''d pull me to the side and make sure I understood. She mentioned stories of helping other clients and it was immediately clear that going above and beyond with clients is her rule, not the exception. It was like looking at apartments with a trusted friend or family member-- who also knows all the real regulations and rules around NY real estate, is a pro at negotiating and has endless positive energy (even on the hottest NY days)! In the end, I was between a listing from Geraldine and an exclusive apartment that would not share the broker''s fee with her. As the ultimate testimony to her authenticity and kindness, Geraldine truly made sure I understood that no matter what decision I made, she was there to help and just wanted me to find a place where I would be happy. The decision was painful for me, but her professionalism and care let me make the best decision for my needs. Although I went with the other place, I can truly say that if I ever end up looking for apartments again I will go straight to Geraldine and have already recommended her to friends moving to the city. This process is difficult, but Geraldine made it as painless and enjoyable as possible. She really is a gem and if you are looking for a new place, I would recommend going to her first. She''ll have your back through it all.
