"I had a wonderful experience working with Cristina Camello. She walked me through each step of the buying process, answering all my questions along the way. She was attuned to what I was looking for and was excellent at tailoring my search as we got a clearer sense of my preferences. Her level of communication, making sure I was up-to-date every step of the way, was so appreciated. I couldn’t recommend Cristina more and if the opportunity arose, would love to work with her again."
Bianca Colasuonno was a consummate professional throughout the entire process of selling my 2-family house in Astoria. I interviewed several brokers and what Bianca and her team had to offer really stood out. Bianca’s advice about how to prepare/show the house, her talent with marketing the property, and expert negotiation skills resulted in a very favorable and competitive selling price. She is an upbeat, positive person and responds to inquiries promptly and thoroughly. I am grateful for Bianca’s aid and highly recommend her services."

I had very specific requirements for my home with price limitations and Chris somehow magically found something that fits my exact needs. Highly recommend Chris if you're looking to purchase a home!"
"Chris Palmer was amazing to work with from start to finish! As a first-time home buyer, Chris helped me find listings that were within my budget and was able to show all of the listings to me and my family quickly. He was very responsive and knowledgeable throughout the whole process and walked me through each step of purchasing an apartment in a co-op in NYC. He listened to my apartment wish list and showed me apartments in the areas of the city I was most interested with the amenities I preferred. Chris was very personable and I really appreciated he was able to show apartments to myself and to my family at different times due to my busy schedule. He definitely made the experience of buying my first home smooth and easy. I'd highly recommend Chris to anyone looking to buy a new place."
