  • The majority of my business is referral-based and very often my client is a young professional looking to buy their first home in the city. These clients often are recent college or business school graduates who have limited financial resources. Typically, these transactions involve parental participation either by assisting financially or by making the purchase outright for the child as a gift. These transactions require a bit more time and patience to ensure that everyone is happy. Some co-ops allow for a parent to gift the money for the purchase while others do not, so knowing which buildings will allow for this type of purchase is critical. My extensive experience in working with this type of buyer allows me to guide my clients confidently through the purchasing process.

  • Parents purchasing for children can be one of the trickiest deals to navigate in this city. Some NYC buildings will allow parents to purchase outright, some require a co-purchase between parent and child, and some want all of the money gifted to the child. With a plethora of experience in this arena (and with our knowledge of buildings and their "parent/child" policies), you will be guided through the purchase with ease.

  • I enjoy helping parents find homes that fit their needs for space, location, amenities, and style. The bulk of my sales have been two to three bedroom apartments and townhouses -- offering space for a growing family.

  • My greatest pleasure in Real Estate is to help parents navigate the market by educating them on both neighborhood highlights including schools and finding that very special home to raise their children in. It is a most honorable role to play in people's lives.
