Agent's personal statement

Upon entering real estate, I quickly made my mark as a top broker. Nominated as REBNY's Rookie of the Year/Most Promising Broker and recognized as a Top Broker by The Real Deal Magazine, I've continued setting the pace as a volume sales leader in my Halstead Village office.

 

My track record is complemented by my ability to serve both domestic and international clients as a Certified Senior Relocation Agent.

 

I believe what sets me apart is my energy, enthusiasm, commitment to my clientele's needs--and ability to facilitate that perfect match between wonderful people and properties.

 

Prior to joining Halstead, I served as the director of marketing and as sales associate for an award-winning real estate team in Washington, D.C. A George Washington University graduate, I earned a degree in Environmental Science and previously worked in environmental management consulting for the Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund Redevelopment Initiatives.

 

Originally from the scenic islands of Ponza and Ischia in Italy, I am now a proud Gramercy co-op owner, and thrive on all that Manhattan has to offer. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking and traveling.

“I think Ivana's biggest strength is her patience. She showed me between forty and fifty apartments before we found my home, and she never grew impatient or frustrated.”

I was originally referred to Ivana by a real estate agent I knew through my family, and because of my experience with her, I've passed on that recommendation to my own friends. Ivana is young, energetic, and extremely smart. I think her biggest strength is her patience. I'm extremely picky, and I don't like having a property sold to me, so Ivana had the tough job of finding me apartments that were already exactly what I was looking for. She showed me between forty and fifty locations that were all within my price range, size, and location preferences, and she never grew impatient or frustrated. I've seen a lot of brokers become annoyed after showing five or ten apartments, but Ivana was energetic and tireless in her search for my home. I would continue to recommend Ivana to others because of the guidance she provides in this real estate environment. New York can be a scary market, and having someone who was experienced and could walk me through the process of purchasing a home was extremely helpful and made the whole transaction much easier on me.

Working with Ivana was great. I had been renting in Manhattan for quite a while, and I was connected to Ivana through a mutual friend. We discussed purchasing property, and together we decided that it would be a positive investment for me. Although the prospect of buying property was a potentially stressful experience, Ivana made it an extremely comfortable and easy process. Not only was she very detail oriented in her work, but she was also a warm and charming person to work with. I would recommend Ivana with no questions asked and have to friends alread. They’ve all had an equally positive experience working with her.

Our experience selling our family's cond-op with Ivana was completely great. She was professional and detail-oriented with her work, and we never felt like she was trying to pressure a deal just to earn a commission. Ivana's work is very personal. She's extremely supportive of both us as clients and every potential buyer we came into contact with. She was thorough and honest with both parties involved in our transaction, and she never glossed over details that potential buyers might want to know about. She was personable, as well, which made working with her a very pleasant experience. We originally listed with Ivana in 2006, and we initially received very little interest in our apartment. Ivana was persistent and committed - she stayed at the space all day, even when we weren't getting any visitors, and she continued to reevaluate her strategy until we had the interest we were looking for. Ivana did a great job in selling our apartment, and we're very happy with the method in which she did it. We highly recommend Ivana to anyone looking for an agent who will be committed to not only the sale, but also to everyone involved in the deal.

Working with Ivana is a seamless experience. Everything she's helped me with has been quick and easy, from the purchase of my investment property to managing the rental space. When I first found the listing for the property I was interested in, I contacted Ivana to discuss some other options and see if she knew of any other properties that were similar. In the end, the property I had found was the most suitable for my investment needs, and Ivana agreed. It turned out that she knew a lot about the building and the Board's policies, including their subletting policy, which proved to be very important and valuable to me. Since the purchase, Ivana has managed my tenants in the building. She's successfully rented it out with no vacancies for five years now, and she's made sure that the tenants have complied to my wishes as a landlord. No task has been too small for Ivana. I would recommend Ivana without hesitation. Across the board, working with her has been very positive.
“Ivana's wonderful personality and phenomenal marketing skills allowed her to sell my apartment in seven weeks during a down market.”

When the Manhattan real estate market started to crash, I decided I wanted to get out of the city until it bounced back. I hired Ivana to help sell my cond-op apartment, and because of her wonderful personality and marketing skills, she was able to get the property into contract within seven weeks of listing it. During my experience with Ivana, I noticed that people really like working with her. She's never pushy, because she understands when someone's not interested in a property, and she doesn't take that personally. She has a very honest perception regarding what type of buyers would be interested in a particular property, and she knows how to market the most attractive aspects of a space for those buyers. Ivana's marketing skills are absolutely phenomenal. Not only does she hire a photographer to take very high-end pictures of the property, but she also does a video walk-through in which she tours each room of the property and discusses note-worthy features. I've never seen anyone else do that, and the videos she makes are very professional. With my apartment, Ivana even went so far as to have a TV interview take place in the space in hopes that a viewer might see the property and want to purchase it. I would definitely recommend Ivana to other sellers, or buyers, and if I decide to return to the city once the market picks up again, I will absolutely call her again.

My experiences working with the real estate market in New York have shown me that it can be a vicious environment, but Ivana is a shining example of how great it could be if everyone had a demeanor like her. Moving out of the city was a very hard decision for me, but Ivana was always very pleasant and positive about the entire process. She always followed through on her word, explained things to me, listened to my needs, and she addressed not only the business aspects of the transaction but also my personal concerns. She really provided me with a personalized experience, and I'm thankful for that. In fact, I just received a hand-written card from her today in which she thanked me for my business. I don't think anyone else does that anymore. In addition to her amazing attitude, Ivana's market knowledge is second to none. She knows what a property should sell for, and she knows what needs to be done to sell it for a great price. She has the experience and industry connections necessary to make the sale quickly, too, and the whole process moves extremely smoothly with Ivana. I have already recommended Ivana to others, and I'd absolutely do so again.

I would recommend Ivana to anyone in the real estate market, no questions asked. She really stands out from other agents and goes out of her way to give her clients what they need. My experiences working with Ivana have been remarkable. She and her husband happened to live on the same floor as my wife and I, so when we decided that we wanted to sell our apartment, we contacted Ivana. We really liked her business strategy and recommendations, so we decided to work with her. The first time we listed the apartment, we didn’t find a buyer at the price we wanted, and Ivana was fine with that. There was never any pressure from her to make us choose a buyer we didn’t want or to change our price to one that we didn’t want. Ivana was very patient with us as well as knowledgeable and helpful. About a year later, we listed the apartment a second time with Ivana and she found the perfect buyers for our home. The whole experience of selling our apartment – thanks to Ivana’s style, business knowledge and grace – went incredibly well. Not only are my wife and I friends with Ivana and her husband, but when the time comes for us to sell our current home, we’ll once again be her repeat customers, too!

Our experience working with Ivana was great. We are from Russia, and Ivana was the first agent we worked with who was sensitive to exactly what we were looking for. We worked with a number of different agents, but none of them understood our needs and position the way that Ivana did. I think this is because she herself is originally from Italy, so she was able to recognize that we didn't want what the typical young American couple would. She took her time to understand what we were looking to find, and when she found an apartment that she thought was suitable, she called me to tell me. I immediately fell in love with the apartment, and we still live here today. Because of the experience we had working with Ivana six years ago, we've recently contacted her again to be the listing agent for this apartment while we look to upsize. I always recommend Ivana to any friends who are looking to buy a new home, and they've all been very satisfied with her.

Ivana is amazing. I was referred to her by a friend, and she actually became a friend from the experience. Ivana listened to what I wanted and got a feel for what I wanted from the minute we started. Because of this, she only showed me properties I was interested in, and each one of them matched my criteria well. I think Ivana's biggest strength is that she's young but very market savvy, so she can play both sides of the real estate game. She's very experienced, but also has a friendly and approachable demeanor, so everyone wants to work with her to get deals done. Still, she knows how to negotiate with everyone, particularly co-op Boards, and she was able to tell me which Boards would be harder to please during our search. I would definitely recommend Ivana to friends or family. She's the best broker I could've hoped to work with.

My experience working with Ivana has been exceptional, and I've already recommended her to several friends. I'm in the process of selling my Gramercy condo, but because of the current market conditions, Ivana and I have decided to rent out the space until we find a buyer. Ivana has exceeded my expectations as a broker - she's put herself in a position to do more than I'd ever expect, and that's been extremely helpful. Not only is Ivana diligent and easy to work with, but she's also incredibly accessible. I've never waited for her to get back to me for more than five to ten minutes, whether it's night, day, or weekends. Whenever I send Ivana an e-mail or leave her a voice mail, she responds within minutes and lets me know when she'll be available to talk. Another remarkable attribute of working with Ivana is how nice she is. I recognize that most brokers are cordial and professional, but Ivana goes above and beyond that. She is among the nicest people I've ever met, let alone worked with.

Selling my co-op apartment with Ivana was a real pleasure. Not only is Ivana professional and extremely knowledgeable about her business, but she is also very sensitive to the more personal issues involved. I chose to work with Ivana after interviewing her and three other brokers. It was an easy decision. I discussed the property and pricing options with each broker, and found that Ivana had the most insight into how to market and price the apartment. She was also honest and highly ethical. She really recognized how special the space was, and that understanding made us feel we were in good hands. I have already recommended Ivana to friends and family, and I would continue to do so without hesitation.
