First-time NYC buyers »

I've worked with quite of number of first-time buyers. I work closely with a mortgage broker, and together we walk first-time buyers through the process, fees and financing. I provide first-time buyers with a guide explaining the process and fees, and I educate them on the market. I hold their hands throughout the process to make sure that they are comfortable and that they understand each aspect of buying a new home.

Agent's personal statement

I entered the real estate industry after twenty successful years in the fashion industry where I rose from the ground floor to a VP of a multi-million dollar designer footwear label. Having achieved success in that industry, I decided that I needed another challenge…..It was time to reinvent myself. So, I turned my hobby of shopping for real estate and spending Sundays attending Open Houses and turned it into my new career. Working in the fast paced world of fashion provided me with the expertise to think on my feet, multitask, spot trends and face grey situations head on.


Negotiating properties is second nature for me. In my prior experience, I negotiated prices and million dollar contracts on a daily basis. This affords my customers the comfort of knowing that they are being represented by a professional who will get them the best deal possible. My attention to detail and service provides my clients with peace of mind, knowing that they are being represented by a professional.


Searching for a new home can be a stressful undertaking; my goal is to make it as painless as possible. In the time since I have entered this arena, I have achieved top broker status within my company numerous times. I am a native New Yorker and homeowner. Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens…I knows it all. My clients rely on me to keep them informed; whether it’s trendy areas, up and coming areas, investment properties or where they should have dinner tonight, I am here to offer customer service.


I primarily focus on helping my client in the mid-high end price range of $400k to $3 million. I specialize in downtown neighborhoods such as Gramercy, Murray Hill, Greenwich Village, West Village, Tribeca, Soho and the Financial District. I have also helped clients in the Upper East Side, Midtown, Brooklyn and even Queens. In my career, I've sold over $25 million worth of real estate. Let me represent you for your real estate needs.

“Rosemarie quickly adapted to changing market conditions and successfully achieved my goals.”

After only looking at a few properties, Rosemarie was able to pinpoint the type of apartment I wanted, and she stayed within my preferences during subsequent searches. She was very adaptive and open to exploring every option I was interested in throughout the search, and when we didn’t end up finding a property for me to buy, she was more than happy to help me find a rental instead. I’ve worked with Rosemarie twice at this point, and both times she’s helped me find a great home without pressuring me into purchasing anything I wasn’t fully satisfied with. I would definitely recommend Rosemarie to others. She knows the city extremely well and is one of the few realtors I know who really accommodate their clients. Working with Rosemarie was a very pleasant experience.
“Rosemarie actually represented the seller when we bought our apartment. We were so impressed with her that we are using her to sell the apartment for us.”

Working with Rosemarie was quite pleasant. Initially, my wife and I had independently found an apartment through a listing of properties. We met Rosemarie after the first few exchanges with the sellers of the apartment, as she was their listing agent. What was impressive about Rosemarie is that we had been told by a number of the other tenants in the building that the sellers were known to make trouble. They had put liens on the apartment and apparently caused some other problems, as well. Fortunately, Rosemarie took care of all those issues and effectively buffered us from having to resolve them on our own. She was very fair about everything, and even though we weren’t her clients, she treated us like we were. I think what really sticks out about Rosemarie is that she doesn’t fall into the category of real estate brokers who make their clients uncomfortable or pressure them to act too quickly. From the first time we spoke, I felt very comfortable with her. She didn’t exaggerate anything, and she answered all my questions in a straight-forward manner. I could tell that she was honest and trustworthy. I would definitely recommend Rosemarie to friends, family, or even strangers, and because of my first experience with her, I called her again just a few weeks ago when my wife and I decided that we wanted to find a new home.
“Rosemarie does her homework and lays the groundwork for a successful experience.”

Working with Rosemarie was a really pleasant experience. Rosemarie is a true professional, she does her homework, and she spent a lot of time setting the groundwork and finding a number of options before presenting them to me. At the time Rosemarie and I worked together, condo hotels hadn’t hit the mainstream, but she still knew more about them than any other realtor I’d talked to. While we worked together, Rosemarie stayed within the parameters that I had established regarding the type of property I was looking for, and she never tried to sell me on a location that was outside of the neighborhoods that I wanted. Furthermore, she left all of the important decisions completely up to me without pressuring me in any way. I have already recommended Rosemarie to others, and I would do so again without a doubt. To this day, Rosemarie and I are in contact and continue to search together for suitable properties for me to invest in.
“We were first-time buyers so we needed as much guidance as possible. Rosemarie was always there for us.”

I found Rosemarie to be incredibly generous with her time. Because my husband and I were first-time buyers, we wanted to look at as many properties as possible, which probably would’ve been a huge headache for most realtors, but Rosemarie was very gracious and patient about everything. I would recommend Rosemarie for her patience alone, but she was also very personable and humorous, which helped make the process comfortable and relaxing. Her punctuality helped to further calm the process, since she always returned my phone calls within an hour and gave me honest and truly helpful responses to my questions. From start to finish, Rosemarie was there for us, and that’s what we had hoped to find in a realtor.
“Rosemarie has a high energy level and a thorough knowledge of Manhattan's neighborhoods.”

Working with Rosemarie was a great experience. From the start, Rosemarie had a high level of energy and always made sure I was fully educated about the whole process of buying a home. When I moved to the city, I didn’t know exactly where I wanted to live. Rosemarie started by showing me a range of apartments, but quickly narrowed it down once she understood what I wanted. Her thorough knowledge of each of Manhattan’s neighborhoods was extremely helpful, and she was able to show me what I could afford in each one with the budget I’d given her. I wholly recommend Rosemarie to someone looking to buy a home in the city.
“Rosemarie is an excellent guide to purchasing real estate in the city.”

I found working with Rosemarie to be an extremely positive experience, and I'd definitely recommend her to others. I was a first-time buyer when I hired her, and she did an excellent job guiding me through the whole process of purchasing real estate in the city. She was patient and supportive the entire time, and she ended up helping me find and buy a co-op in Tudor City. I'm very satisfied with my experience with Rosemarie.
