Owen Berkowitz

Owen was amazing! My husband and I found our forever home and needed to sell our current home extremely quickly. Being a real estate agent myself (I am a commercial broker), I thought I could sell it on my own. However, I quickly realize that the commercial real estate world and the residential real estate world are completely different. After a few weeks and no real showings or interest, I called Owen. Owen was out of town the day that I spoke with him but his partner, Carol, came that afternoon, toured our home and by that evening we had a sales price that we agreed upon. We listed our home on September 1st, Labor Day Weekend. Owen held an open house on Sunday, September 3rd and by Monday we had three offers at or near full price and on Tuesday we had a 4th offer over asking. 13-days later we had a fully executed contract of sale! This was critical for my husband and I, as we HAD to sell our home to purchase our new house. We were given till September 30th to have a fully executed contract on our home or the sellers of the house we were purchasing were not going to wait for us and were planning to go with a backup offer they had for all cash. Given the time constraints that were placed upon us, Owen was wonderful in ensuring that we had our home in contract ASAP. We are thrilled by our decision to work with Owen and his team. Our decision to go with Owen is one I am so happy that I made. Always professional, extremely knowledgeable and wonderful at managing the deal process, I would without hesitation recommend own to sell your home! Because of Owen and his efforts, our home is sold and we are moving into our forever home, and we are forever grateful for all his efforts and hard work.

Hi Owen and Carol,

Tom and I thank you for a job well done! Your team provided the professional service, courteous behavior and dedication we expected. Best wishes in all your future endeavors.

Regards, Maureen and Tom Corona Avenue, Pelham

Let me start out by saying Owen Berkowitz and his team are awesome. They are knowledgeable, professional with a no-nonsense work ethic yet friendly and engaging. Owen made us feel as though we were is only clients. From the minute we agreed to let Owen find tenants for our rental apartment, he and his team brought in a constant flow of potential renters. So much so, we were able find the ideal tenants and fill our vacancy in record time. Owen is definitely the hardest working realtor in Westchester. If you are looking to buy, sell or rent a property, Owen is your guy hands down!

Derrick and Lori. Glenwood Lake, New Rochelle

I decided it was time to downsize in the beginning of the summer. I started looking in Manhattan and was introduced to a realtor from Douglas Elliman Real Estate to sell my Westchester home.

I met Owen Berkowitz on July 11th. He walked into my home with such enthusiasm, looked around and then sat down with me and walked me through the entire process. Within days my home was listed EVERYWHERE. Owen personally ran my open house and had a great turnout! On August 10th I had an offer!

I was amazed at the authentic compassion Owen had working with me. He takes great pride in what he does and guides you in the right direction.I highly recommend Owen Berkowitz and will never forget how well he took care of me! I felt like I had a vested partner in the process.

The experience was WONDERFUL!! I hope our paths cross again one day!

We would like to take a moment to sing the praises of Owen Berkowitz, he was the realtor that worked with us so diligently when we had to sell my mothers-in-law house in New Rochelle.

We were given Owen’s name from another very satisfied customer of his, and we could not have asked for a better agent. Owen, was always there when I called, emailed and or sent a text, without fail I got a response within minutes. Owen took care of all the heavy lifting for us and we just followed his suggestions, with regard to how we prepped the house for the walk throughs and the ultimate sale.

We listed the house with Owen on a Thursday of a holiday week and I believe we had the asking price offer in 5 days. Owen and his team did exactly what they said they would do.

I cannot say enough about the way Owen handled this sale for us and how cooperative and professional he was at every step of the process.

Rich Lau & the entire Keane Family

"Owen was hands down the best agent we have ever worked with. We met him months back when we were going around for open houses and he was showing one of the places we looked at. We immediately knew that when we were ready to buy, he would be our guy – and he didn’t disappoint. He knew the area inside out, down to the traffic noise levels in certain streets. He knew how to craft a winning offer and how to negotiate when needed. Our first offer we made with him as our agent got accepted and we closed on our place in July.More than his professionalism – which was impeccable, he was more of a very good friend guiding us though the process. He was very warm and genuinely cared. He went out of his way and used his very wide networks to find any information we needed and proactively kept everyone in the loop. He would definitely be our guy when it comes to real estate anytime going forward."

Best,

Bitsat (Buyer in Pelham Manor)

After striking out on our own, my wife & I finally came to our senses & hired an agent to represent us in our first home purchase. By then we had already seen hundreds of homes & met nearly as many agents. Few agents were memorable but only one had the qualities we valued. His name is Owen Berkowitz.

Not only did Owen have the best listings in the Westchester municipalities we were considering, he impressed us with his encyclopedic knowledge of the local market, the history of the neighborhoods, and how in-tuned he was to a home’s flaws & details. This is who we wanted on our side?someone smart, experienced & engaged.

While it was Owen’s intelligence that made in impression, it was his honesty that ultimately won us over. My wife & I didn’t want to be sold a house—we knew what we wanted. We needed the right someone to make the deal, and to support and guide us through the process. Owen delivered for us. We’re eternally grateful for everything he has done & continues to do for us even after closing.

Going it alone may be the worst thing you can do when purchasing real estate in the NYC metro area. Don’t be us before we met Owen. Be us after working w/ Owen which is incredibly happy with our purchase. Pick Owen. Be happy.
 
Paul  & Barbara 

After meeting with 3 potential brokers, we chose Owen, and our research paid off. He understood our unique, 120+ year old home, marketed it beautifully, and attracted over 60 potential buyers in 2 months. He let us and our 2 dogs live comfortably during the showing process, and Owen was available for every concern we had - at times several in the same day. When it came time to weigh potential buyers, we rejected a few and in short time found the right one. You were a great partner during the entire process, Owen, and we thank you for your terrific service for this very important, emotional sale.

Owen was a referral from our neighbors who had an excellent experience as well.  Like a true professional, he was both pleasant to deal with and effective.   His enthusiasm, creativity, and knowledge  of the local market moved our home more quickly and with less stress than we imagined was possible. We feel he worked  very hard to make sure all parties (buyer and seller) were happy. Thank you Owen

Seller in Residence Park, New Rochelle

We recently bought and sold homes with Owen and Carol and could not be happier with the service and expertise they provided. The first time we met Owen, we immediately clicked. After discussing our criteria, he took the time to look through several homes. He was patient, frank, and honest. We felt in control throughout the entire process. Owen was also incredibly responsive to our questions throughout the purchasing process.

When it was time to sell our co-op, we initially tried to do it on our own. Owen and Carol were helpful, but it quickly became clear that we needed their experience and connections to get the full value for our home. Their guidance was spot on and they were very accommodating based on our moving situation. We stayed in contact throughout the process and they even provided an app that updated us on all of the showings that were scheduled. We were directly involved and informed throughout the entire process.

Owen and Carol's guidance made the incredibly stressful process of buying and selling a home so much more relaxed and less stressful. We now recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Westchester area.

John and Liz

"Our family has known Owen through mutual Pelham circles for years. We chose him to sell our home because we trusted his taste, instincts and all-around professionalism. What we discovered in addition to that was his calm, ability to see beyond what may look like a crisis, and well-placed humor. I recommend everything about Owen as a real estate professional and, more importantly, as a friend.”

Sellers, 1117 Washington Avenue, Pelham Manor

If you're looking to buy or sell property in Westchester, New York, we've got the real estate broker for you...Owen Berkowitz with Douglas Elliman Real Estate!
As if selling a property isn't challenging enough, try selling a multi-family dwelling as part of an estate sale. Then add two inexperienced administrators who live on opposite sides of the country, a tenant still living in the apartment and you get a variety of other complications.
From start to finish, Owen walked us through and explained everything along the way. He had connections to trustworthy resources that enabled us to get things accomplished inside the house without needing to physically be in New York. He discussed the pricing and marketing strategy and to our surprise, everything went according to plan. Immediately upon putting the property on the market, there were tons of showings which lead to multiple offers. Owen assured us we could contact him anytime we had questions/concerns. We most certainly put him to the test and he passed with flying colors. He was very responsive to our calls, text messages, and emails at various times of the day and night.
It's our hope that we never have to be the administrators of an estate in the future...especially one that is located in a different state. However, should we ever need a real estate broker in New York again, we have Owen on speed-dial!

Sellers-New Rochelle NY

We recently sold our home of almost 40 years. Owen Berkowitz and his partner Carol Marrone handled the sale. Our home was a beautiful 8000 square foot house on an one acre of property across the street from the Pelham Country Club golf course. If we do say so ourselves, it is very special property! We could not be happier with the way every phase of the sale was handled by Owen and Carol This was a difficult time to sell a home of this type in Pelham and of the several homes on the market in our price range, ours was one of only two that sold! This was in large part due to the extraordinary effort put in by Owen and Carol and fully supported by their firm Douglas Elliman. It was such a pleasure to work with two true professionals who deeply care about their clients and who have the resources of a firm like Douglas Elliman at their complete command. This was evident from the gorgeous brochure produced, the full page newspaper ads, the open houses, not only for customers but for Douglas Elliman brokers from all over the region, and much, much more. Hard work, dedication to the task, aggressive, innovative marketing and PR, and commitment to detail and execution got the job done. Last, and far from least, Owen and Carol are wonderful people and this made the time we spent together a pleasure!

Thank you!

Barbara and Arthur Bratone-Pelham Manor, NY

Entrusting Owen and his team with the sale of my property in New Rochelle was a straightforward decision. He demonstrated deep knowledge of both the local neighborhood and the overall Westchester and New York markets. The instant we listed the property he went to work to best market the house to potential buyers. Owen immediately hosted successful broker and buyer open houses. Within days we received multiple offers above asking price. Owen assisted in selecting the best offer. The process from beginning to closing was flawless. Owen and his team were integral to making the sale of my house a successful and stress free event.

-Martin P.
New Rochelle NY Seller

My husband and I were first time buyers and Owen and his team were the first realtors we contacted. We chose him based on all the wonderful reviews and reading his bio on his website. What everyone has said about him is true! Owen and Carol are wonderful. They made the whole process fun. They are very knowledgeable about the area and communicate efficiently. They also are not afraid to tell it like it is, which we really appreciated. They honestly cared about what we wanted in our first home, but were realistic with us as well. I highly recommend Owen and his team...you will not be disappointed! You and Carol are the best, and we will definitely spread the word about how awesome you are!

Casey & Jeff, Hartsdale NY buyers

We had a great experience with Owen and Carol as our realtors. The marketing materials were highly professional and the staging very tasteful. Owen took ownership of the process and kept us in the loop every step of the way. He is a true professional and exhibits a thorough mastery of the sales process. The result says it all: multiple offers and sales price over asking.

Jim and Sandy, Sellers New Rochelle, NY

"As new, and young prospective home-owners we were looking for a knowledgeable, patient agent that could guide us through the process. Our friends recommended Owen, and we couldn't be more thankful they did! After our first meeting, we were immediately at ease: Owen talked with us as if we were family, not just another client. He treated our starter home search with the same care and consideration an agent would give to a million-dollar listing, and offered insightful guidance to factor in at each property. Anytime we had a question, he had an answer (a real answer, not what we wanted to hear) or a referral to someone who had the answer. It was almost as if Owen treated our home search as his own!

Owen makes sure you take the time you need and is motivated by happy clients, not the bottom line. You would be hard-pressed to find someone more knowledgeable about the area, including restaurants, activities and even some history (be sure to trust him with any restaurant recommendations, we haven't been disappointed!). My wife and I could not have imagined another person working with us throughout this entire process. From first home viewing to our closing we felt cared for, and comforted by the fact we had Owen on our side. I am always skeptical to call people "the best", but I TRULY believe Owen is "THE BEST", and the proof is in the pudding! While we have no intention to move anytime soon, if and when we do, we will be SURE to call Owen first."

Hope & Tiff, homebuyers

Selling our house with Owen was fun, easy and fast. His positive energy helped to make this a wonderful experience. Owen is passionate, imaginative, trustworthy and caring.

Sellers in Scarsdale NY

Owen Berkowitz is not just a real estate "professional." He is like some kind of Special Agent, working tirelessly on your behalf, often in the tiny hours of the morning. With Owen standing behind you, you will feel that someone is looking out for you, that your interest is being well guarded. Most realtors make you feel that what they're truly interested in is a quick deal so they can make their money and get out. But Owen won't push you into anything, even if you are unrealistic. He'll stick by you, gently pointing out the realities until you figure it out yourself, like the good father you never had. When we sell, we will certainly be signing up with Owen.

Matt & May, Buyers in Dobbs Ferry NY

Owen was a very detail-oriented, hard-working broker. He knows our neighborhood well and truly understands the market in Westchester. He had great advice about how to stage our house and how to price it. We would recommend him to anyone who asks.

Sellers, Glenwood Lake in New Rochelle

We were extremely pleased with our experience with Owen Berkowitz as our agent in the recent sale of our Westchester home. He and his team were very professional and dynamic, giving us solid advice and guidance throughout the whole process, and quick answers to even the smallest questions. His pleasant approach, knowledge of his field, and concern for our interests resulted in a smooth, quick sale. We highly recommend Owen Berkowitz, his team and this agency!

Julie & Jerome, Sellers, Larchmont, NY

In late Fall of 2015, we listed our home with Owen Berkowitz of Douglas Elliman and we couldn't be happier with the experience. Owen is thoroughly professional, very knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. What normally would have been a stressful process for any seller, was smooth and easy (and fun) with Owen. Douglas Elliman's vast network and good mobile technology platform allowed for a very efficient process. We had multiple offers within 3 weeks and signed a contract at list price within 6 weeks of listing. We were quite happy with the success of our listing and very satisfied with the experience. We highly recommend Owen Berkowitz of Douglas Elliman to anyone who wants to sell his/her property.

Joseph & Isabel

"Owen helped us get our first home. Right off the bat he treated us like we were family. He talked us out of a few high-risk homes and made sure we didn't rush into anything. He explained every detail of the home buying process and made sure we got the best price on our home. Owen fought for us during the entire buying experience and made sure we didn't just get our home but loved it."

Josh & Harper

Owen was great! As first time buyers, we were more than a little anxious about the entire process. Owen was very helpful with answering all our questions and providing the information we needed at every step. His friendly manner made us comfortable while his expertise made us feel that we were under well experienced hands. And when it came to negotiations his knowledge and experience certainly proved advantageous for us and we were quite happy with the results. We had our own attorney and lender lined up already but Owen continued to be available to us whenever we had questions or concerns even after closing. We definitely will recommend him to anyone looking to buy in Westchester and we look forward to working with him again when the time comes.

DePaul & Ryna, Home Buyers

Owen is by far the most ethical, reliable and trustworthy agent I have ever met. He is a pleasure to work with and has excellent communication. His knowledge of Westchester is superb. He protects his clients from first time buyer pitfalls and also tells them the best place to get a burger! He came highly recommended to us and we will continue to pass his name along with the highest recommendations. Don't buy in Westchester without Owen!

Thanks,
Heather & Nick, home buyers

We worked with Owen while looking for our first house. He was incredibly helpful, reassuring and a great guide.

We talked and emailed constantly and he was good enough to pick us up at the train and take us around when we came to see houses in Westchester.

He knew all the neighborhoods and had great advice on what to look at in homes, particularly helpful since we were newbies in such hunts. And when we’d drive around he did a great job telling us the history of the area and pointing out attractions, helping us learn where we’d like to be.

And when we found a place we loved, he was a great coach on the offer and negotiator for us, planning a strategy that worked seamlessly. (Following an open house with more than a dozen viewers and several other offers, we won and we stayed below our max budget.)

Then he gave us a roster of other people we needed and his recommended inspector, lender and lawyer were all stars as well.

Even after the offer was accepted, Owen stayed in touch and helped us straight through to the closing, answering questions and giving advice. 

Owen was the complete package!

-David and Lisa, Hartsdale NY 

"Being first time homebuyers, the process to us seemed so daunting.  We received Owen’s name as a referral from someone we knew and we were so thankful we did.  Being that he lives in the area we were looking it was so calming to us that he was so knowledgeable about all of our questions we had.  Owen was there every step of the way, even from his hospital bed when he had to get unexpected surgery!  Even if there were times that he couldn’t show us listings he always made sure that someone from his office could cover.  And most importantly when it came down to the process of making the offer and going through negotiations he went above and beyond to make the deal.  Owen was a pleasure to work with and we look forward to continuing our relationship with him."

Thanks, Ali and Sean

Owen is a true gem!! He has helped us enormously during the purchase of our new home from the actual offer stage through to the actual closing and at each step his counsel and support has been truly valued. We cannot recommend him highly enough!! Thank you again Owen.

Prev and Emily, Pelham NY

Working with Owen is such a pleasure. He is dedicated, passionate, fun, friendly, and helpful -- always available to answer questions, calm nerves, or just to check in. We've worked with him 5 times -- once to buy a house, 3 times to rent it out, and once to sell it. He was successful each time, and I couldn't recommend him more highly -

Home Seller Emily S. Chappaqua NY

Working with Owen is like working with an old friend: after spending time getting to know what your family thinks a home should be, he guides you with a tender appreciation for your values. His wisdom and patience were so valuable to us as we made our way through the matrix of purchasing our first home. He took a bewildering experience and made it manageable, always honoring who we are and what our dreams for our family are. He is like a philosopher realtor, offering counsel when we began to stray and affirmation when he saw that we found something that matched our vision. I can't imagine a more available and understanding person to guide a family through this process.

D and T…Pelham to New Rochelle buyers

Thinking about selling or buying a house or apt.? I can't think of a better person to talk to than Owen Berkowitz. Owen is committed to his profession 24/7. Whenever you call or email, he replies right away. Owen helped me to buy my apartment in Larchmont, and guided me on the sale of my house in New Rochelle.  

When I was considering whether and when to sell, Owen never pushed, never urged, always listened and offered wise advice. Thanks to Owen I put my house on the market at the right time, for the right price. It sold at an open house first day on the market, to a buyer who loves it.

Whether you're buying, selling, or moving, the process is stressful. When I panicked, Owen stayed calm. When I questioned, Owen had answers. When I needed people to do various jobs, Owen had names. His enthusiasm is contagious. He cares, and that matters. Thanks Owen!

Joyce B.

Our first-time home buying experience was a breeze with the help of Owen. We had no idea what to expect or the process involved. Owen helped us every step of way starting from day one. We found our house and Owen did the walk through with us and we knew we loved the house. He answered all the questions we had and he explained everything in detail. He was there when we needed him and he was very easy to get in touch with, he responded promptly to messages and phone calls. After a long wait with lots of reassurance and support from Owen, we finally closed on our house. And of course, he was right there by our side even during the closing. We can't thank him enough for his professionalism, courtesy, and friendliness.

The Shah family, White Plain NY

Owen navigated through what could have been a challenging situation and turned it into a seamless experience. A true professional (pro) with great consultative, outstanding research, marketing and listening skills and a soothing persona. My stress was minimized while profit maximized and closing right on target! I enthusiastically recommend him without reservation.

Michele H. Seller, Croton-On-Hudson

As long-time Brooklynites looking for a home with more space in Westchester, my husband and I didn’t have much of a clue. Enter Owen Berkowitz! Immediately we knew he was going to be our broker. Owen has a tremendous way with people, such that every potentially hairy situation was smoothed over before it ever had a chance to escalate. Not only did we rely on Owen for insights about the various homes and communities in east Westchester, but he introduced us to helpful individuals who were willing to talk to us about the neighborhood, schools, taxes, commute options, etc. Owen was thinking about our needs even before we were. We also found our inspector, window contractor, mortgage lender and closing attorney through Owen. He is a limitless source of helpful information and is truly a great person to work with. With his guidance, our family now has a lovely home in a school district where we will be proud and happy to send our child and watch him grow up. I would recommend Owen to anyone selling or buying a home in the area. We could not have done this without him!

Gina & Dave, New Rochelle NY

"I wish to highly recommend Owen Berkowitz from Douglas Elliman Real Estate. When I first spoke to Owen, I had just interviewed another agent. Owen had quite a bit of confidence and said 'I was saving the final and best interview for him'. Who did this guy think he was? I thought.... Owen set himself apart from the moment I met him. His evaluation of our home, it's value, how to stage it, what repairs were and were not needed was exceptional! The video services and networking on social media was worlds apart from the other competitive agents. The challenge to sell our house was great. The 85-year-old home needed multiple repairs, was filled with 42 years of memories, and I lived out-of-state. Owen had a resource for everything! Carpenters, Architects, Asbestos Removers, Junk Haulers, Electricians and more! I was able to remotely manage the team. Not only did I get expert advice, but we sold the house in a few short months, where many other homes in the neighborhood have been left unsold. There is more! Owen understood the emotional connection to our home. He approached the sale of this home with an exceptional ability to blend business with a heartfelt relationship to his clients. I recommend Owen Berkowitz unconditionally as the best Real Estate Agent I have ever used."

Gail K. Tate, Atlanta

We met Owen while inquiring about one of his listings and immediately felt comfortable with him. Owen spent a great amount of time talking with us and focusing on our needs and what was truly important to us as a family. It was clear from the beginning that he knew the area we were interested in like the back of his hand, and that he was a true professional in every way. Working with Owen was an absolute pleasure as he took all of the stress and confusion out of the home buying process. His availability to show us houses on nights and weekends, and to answer calls and texts any time we needed him was also a real convenience. We look forward to recommending Owen to our friends and family and also look forward to working with him again ourselves. We could not recommend him more.

Homebuyers, New Rochelle NY

Owen Berkowitz is a doctorate of the real estate world. He sold our home with absolute precision. Owen is knowledgeable, always available, honest, realistic, and an absolute pleasure to work with. And while he is probably the hardest working realtor in Westchester County, he will always find time for his clients. He's got it all!...

Sellers of 264 Lincoln Avenue

Anyone who has had the pleasure of working with Owen knows what I do – no one is better at what he does. He knows houses, he knows neighborhoods, he knows people. His ability to make connections and stay calm under stressful circumstances is noteworthy. We made a big move from NYC to New Rochelle, and Owen was a fount of wisdom before we moved in, and has remained so. We are proud to call him our friend.

A & R--Glenwood Lake in New Rochelle

We feel so fortunate that a friend recommended Owen Berkowitz to us to assist us in selling our mother's home. We had no familiarity with the area and prices, school district, etc., and had to rely completely on a realtor's advice. Owen was incredible.

From the moment we met him, he was thoroughly professional. He advised us on the changes we needed to make to the house: what furniture to leave, what items to remove and he told us how to put our house in the best light for sale. Most importantly, the changes he recommended were cosmetic and did not require a significant investment.

He referred us to excellent people for removal of items, painting, floor refinishing - all were reasonable and all did an excellent job and were professional. Owen recommended a fair price and we had many brokers view the home and were able to sell it very quickly. Throughout the process, he was always available by phone or text, knew exactly what he was doing and gave great advice. On top of this, he is a great guy and easy to work with - he made a difficult process much easier for us because we knew we were in good hands right from the start. On a scale of 1 to 10, we would give Owen a score of 100!

Linda Tempel and Alex Calabrese, Tuckahoe

Owen truly went ‘the extra mile’ in guiding us through our recent purchase in Pelham. He knows all of the communities in Westchester inside and out, and was happy to share his knowledge to help us find the place that was right for us. This included transparency about individual properties, and this is how he works. He was there at our closing, and has been very helpful since then. We felt very lucky to have him looking out for us when making a big decision for our family.

W & Z, Pelham

There can’t be enough said about the wonderful work Owen did on our behalf to sell our townhouse. He helped us get the property ready for sale, maintained a realistic outlook on market conditions, and undertook a marketing campaign targeting buyers from near and far and specifically targeting buyers moving up from his own home town of Brooklyn where so many buyers are coming from. It worked! All painless and anxiety free.

Seller in Pelham, NY

"Sometime you just get lucky and have the opportunity to work with someone like Owen Berkowitz. When it comes to deep knowledge of the market, critical relationships, responsiveness, and professionalism, Owen isn't just very, very good, he is world class. I wish every professional I hire in my life had the expertise and work ethic of Owen - the world would be a more productive and satisfying place to do business. In the sea of brokers in Westchester who promise the world, do yourself a favor and use Owen, he's the guy that actually delivers. I'm privileged to call him my broker and friend."

-Jason Griffith

I carefully studied the real estate market in my area for more than a year. I found Owen Berkowitz to be an agent that realistically priced homes, professionally marketed them and sold them within a reasonable time period. So, when I decided to put my home on the market I contacted Owen and found him to be exactly what I needed in an agent. He was an excellent resource for home projects, prepared a professional marketing campaign, and was a great communicator as to how to price my home. Needless to say, I was super happy with his representation and my house sold within a month. Thanks Owen you are the best.

Ileana Fuentes, New Rochelle NY

My wife and I recently bought our first home thanks to Owen. Having spent most of our adult lives living in Manhattan we were pretty clueless (and somewhat naive) on what to look for in a first home. From day one Owen made the process easy and painless. Throughout our many showings he spotted potential red flags in homes that we would have never thought to look for. His knowledge and expertise led us to find our perfect first home. He worked hard to negotiate a deal for us that fit within our budget and was there for us every step of the home buying process, promptly responding to all of our questions and concerns. We had heard many stories from family and friends about how stressful buying a home could be, but having Owen as our agent relieved us of any potential stress and made us comfortable that we were making the right decision.

Rob and Emily, Pelham N.Y.

The house that Owen sold for us was the only house we had ever owned, so it was the first time we had gone through the sales process. Owen was very professional, very knowledgeable, and always 100% above board. Although we were frustrated by the lack of offers during the four months our house was on the market, Owen stayed positive and enthusiastic, and he was always available and responsive. He always offered his suggestions about strategy, but never imposed his views on us. It was always clear that we were the decision makers. Ultimately, we had two offers within a week of each other, and Owen handled the situation superbly. I don’t know if anyone could have handled it better: we got more than our asking price, which made us very happy!

Owners and sellers of 1 Chelsea Road, New Rochelle, July 2014

I worked with Owen Berkowitz in 2008 to purchase my house in Westchester County. He is the best realtor I have ever worked with (I've purchased four homes). First of all, he's a wonderful person: warm, friendly, funny, smart, interesting, and cool. Second, he has a ton of integrity and is always candid and honest. I trust him so much that I've referred three close friends to him and they had similarly excellent results. Third, he knows everything and everybody. He was the owner and master baker at a much-loved bakery in Pelham for many years and has a vast network of friends and connections. Fourth, he's patient and is willing to try just about anything to help you get what you want. If you're lucky enough to work with Owen, just do it. You won't regret it!

The owners of 24 Villard Ave, Hastings-On-Hudson

Any first-time home buyer knows that buying a new house is an exciting but nerve-wracking process. Luckily for us, we had Owen by our side! Owen was so helpful in walking us through the process. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, reliable, and responsive, he really got to know us and what we were looking for in a home. Owen helped us to broaden our search by suggesting neighborhoods that he thought we would like based on his intimate knowledge of the areas. We ended up finding our dream home in an area we never would have considered had he not suggested it! We are so thankful for all of Owen's help, and would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a new home.

8 years ago, Owen helped my husband and I find our first home together and it was a great experience. This past year, our family grew with new twin babies and we knew there was no one else we wanted to help us with selling the old house and buying a new bigger one, but Owen. Both experiences were absolutely wonderful. Owen took the time to get to understand who we are, what is it that we are looking for and every house that we were presented with was right on the mark. Owen found buyers for our old house immediately (in the middle of the winter.) and our new home by far exceeds what we expected we'd be able to find.

Owen makes a lot of effort to understand who his clients are, their needs, their taste and he is very proactive with coming up with outside of the brief ideas, which in our case helped us get the amazing home that we now live in.

Sarah and I had heard about Owen, and had of course been aware of his impressive local track record of selling homes in the neighborhood, but had not had the pleasure of meeting him until we invited him to our house as we were interviewing many local real estate agents. We were immediately aware of what makes him head and shoulders above others. His enthusiasm is infectious and his deep knowledge of the market along with an amazing marketing platform with so many connections and ideas made our decision to choose him easy. The result was equally impressive! His Open House brought a huge turnout and we had FIVE offers by the next day. Owen helped guide us through the negotiations and we are thrilled that we are in contract already (within three weeks of listing!) He is the best real estate advisor, marketer and negotiator that we have ever dealt with. Thank you, Owen!!

As first-time home buyers, it was very helpful to have Owen on our side as he proved patient, knowledgeable (both of the process and the area, New Rochelle) and kind (he became a friend along the way).  We had a long list of requirements and were not going to settle. Owen never pushed us.  He assured us that with time (which we had) we would find the right house.  And we did.  He knows homes and what to look for inside each and walked us carefully through each step of the buying process.  Now that we are settled, we look forward to having Owen and his family over to our new home.  We would highly recommend Owen.

 

Sincerely,

Beth and Matt

"Owen is extremely knowledgeable about the market, thorough, honest, and diligent. From beginning to end, he made the normally arduous and stressful process of purchasing a home much easier. We would highly recommend his services to any prospective party looking to buy or sell a home".   

-Alison and Jerod

I sold my home in Bayberry with Owen as the selling agent.  What a great experience! This is not ‘home touring agent’, Owen is a home selling agent! He was professional on all fronts: did his research, brought in real buyers, who were pre-approved by a bank and ready to make a decision – he knew his clients and knew the property before coming to see it; he helped the buyers through their first home purchase and was courteous and helpful to me as the selling party.  Although unusual in many respects this sale went through smoothly.  Would recommend Owen to anyone selling or buying a home.  Well done, Owen!

Owen helped us rent our apartment when we were under a tight time frame to relocate out of state. I had talked with other realtors about renting our apartment but when I met Owen we immediately felt and saw how professional he was. He is passionate about his job. He loves people and it is easy to connect with him.  In addition, his work ethic is fantastic and is very dependable. Overall, we feel lucky to have found such an honest and hardworking realtor.

 

We highly recommend him!

"Owen is a fantastic agent and a great guy to boot. We've worked with him multiple times and he's been nothing short of amazing each time. He's a true partner and always ready and willing to go the extra mile for his clients.

"Owen is a great broker and all around fun person. He listened well and helped us zero in on the house. He was familiar with the market and made great recommendations.Owen has a great knowledge of issues with houses and how much work it would take to fix them. At the inspection and at closing he was great at spotting issues and effectively negotiating price reductions.

Owen is a driven great project manager. He kept everything going forward toward closing. We were on a tight timeline and Owen made it work.

I cant say enough good things about Owen. Just hire him.

We found Owen by chance on the Redfin site, and are so grateful for this bit of luck. As word got around our circle of friends that we were working with Owen to find our first home, the praise rolled in -- he did not disappoint.

It took about a year and Owen proved patient and up to the task of finding us OUR home. We had a long list of requirements and were not going to settle. Owen never pushed us. He assured us that with time (which we had) we would find the right house. We did.

Owen has an immense knowledge of the Westchester area (specifically, for us, New Rochelle and Pelham). He knows homes and what to look for inside each. As first-time home buyers it was helpful to have someone with this knowledge on our side.

We look forward to having Owen and his family at our home for drinks and more of his great stories. We would (which is probably obvious at this point), highly recommend Owen.

This was my 4th real estate experience with Owen! I've bought three houses and sold one though him. At the broker open house for this sale not many local brokers showed up. When Owen asked one that did why that was, the local broker said "nothing sells here so there's not much point" or words to that effect. And it is true, it's not an easy area to sell houses right now and many homes are on the market for a long time. Owen told the local broker that he intended to get action on my house within a few days to which the broker laughed and said "good luck with that!'. Well, sure enough, we had 4 offers in the first few days and Owen asked for final and best bids on the 7th day of going to market. I accepted the best bid that day which was significantly over the asking price. Needless to say, that I'm extremely happy with the way that Owen handled this sale....and all three house purchases too.

Owen was referred to me by a business associate and I could not have had a better person working for me and my mother's interests. He went above and beyond with help and guidance for selling the property and also personal things. If I needed and an auto mechanic or snow removal or groceries when I was ill he was always there for me. He was a perfect professional agent and has become a friend.

Owen was a wonderful agent to have. This deal was particularly difficult (for several reasons, none pertaining to Owen of course) and he was a great support and sincerely cared about trying to make it as easy and painless for me. He cares about what he does and he cares about the people he represents and is always looking out for his client's best interests.

Owen was very pleasant to work with. He listened to what we were looking for in a house and met all of our requests. He also gave us pointers as to what we should pay attention to when looking for a home since we were inexperienced first time home buyers.

He also was very quick answering any questions or concerns we had after we started the buying process. He was always very accessible via phone and email and made us feel comfortable. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a home as he is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. In Owen, we have found not just the perfect home, but also a dear friend.Ketrin & Phil

As long-time Brooklynites, we were both excited and nervous about leaving the City to buy our first home. Owen helped us to harness our excitement and soothe our nerves with his holistic perspective and keen understanding that the process of relocating is complex. Owen was warm and funny, yet always professional, and was a great guidepost for us as he helped us transform from his clients to his neighbors! We'd definitely recommend Owen, especially for those who need frequent pep talks about the wonders of life outside of NYC.

Owen Berkowitz is an extremely personable, helpful and responsive agent. We made a cross-country move and Owen helped us with the transition by supplying a variety of resources along the way - from local roofers to cleaning services to heating services and more. During the purchase process, he was always in our corner and ready and willing to help out – even picking up the appraiser whose car ran out of gas (during Sandy) so he could come out to see the house and help us move the process forward. He offered great advice and looked out for our interests. I would highly recommend him!

Owen was a beacon of sanity in our house hunting and the actual purchasing and closing process. He is very knowledgeable, always professional, an absolute straight shooter, fights for his clients, and goes the extra mile. Thanks to his recommendations and bartering, we were able to get our house both below the asking price as well as below its current appraised value. An additional bonus for us was that Owen has a fantastic disposition, making it a real pleasure to work with him. Finally, Owen is well connected in the local community, and pointed us in the direction of contractors who have performed quality work on our house. In short, Owen provides an amazing return on investment for the buyer and is a great guy on top of this. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy, or sell, in the areas he services.

We had a great experience working with Owen to buy our first home. As first time homebuyers, it took us some time to really decide what we wanted and Owen's experience and knowledge about the area helped us to come to those decisions. He was also extremely patient throughout the process, even as we changed our mind along the way - we never felt pressured. He worked very hard for us once we found the house, even emailing/calling/following-up on issues while he was on vacation. We always felt like Owen was in our corner and the one person we could count on during a pretty stressful process.

And for those with kids, Owen was wonderful with our not-so-patient toddler who was along for the house hunting ride - the whining didn't faze him at all! We strongly recommend working with Owen.

We had an amazing experience with Owen. As first time home buyers, we were quite indecisive and looked at several houses before we came to a decision. Owen was very very patient and showed us around 50 houses, and some multiple times without batting an eyelid and always with a smile. Based on the criteria we laid out, he created targeted lists of houses for us to see. And he was very prompt in responding to our emails or accommodating our requests to see additional houses. He was very knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and the homes. And when we were looking at fixer-uppers, he was very helpful in putting us in touch with contractors who accompanied us on the house visits and gave us estimates on the remodeling costs. Also he put us in touch with a mortgage person who gave us the best quotes - we shopped around for rates quite a bit. All in all, he basically handheld us through the entire experience. It was a pleasure working with him and I would and have recommended him to all my friends and family.

Owen was more than an agent. He helped me find plumbers, electricians, and oil tank experts. He took out my trash and recycles when I had already moved to my new home out of state. He went to City Hall and the Fire Department to check all details on my house. When we found buyers, he made sure that they checked out and would be able to purchase my home. Owen's advice, and consistent attention to the deal was the driving force. He is intense but keeps smiling and it is that combination that makes Owen the best real estate agent around. I have bought and sold many homes and apartments and this was the best real estate experience so far! I would tell everyone to call Owen.

My husband and I just purchased our dream home from Owen Berkowitz, whose in-depth understanding of the real estate market was only surpassed by his uncanny ability to please two people who had different ideas of what we wanted. Owen is a patient man, positive in outlook and generous with his time and enthusiasm for the work he clearly loves. Thus, what started as a potentially frustrating task-finding the right home in the right location at the right price- became a thoroughly enjoyable quest with Owen in the lead. We marveled at his ever-present sense of humor and even-tempered approach to every aspect of the search and subsequent negotiation. We trusted his judgment every step of the way and are now thrilled to own a home we love.

I found Owen by doing a google search after speaking with two other brokers who did not return phone calls or e-mails. Owen is simply amazing. He is kind, patient, quirky, funny and determined. I truly believe that Owen is more interested in seeing that you find the right place than making a sale. We had certain conditions for the co-op that had to be met due to medical reasons and Owen really listened and paid attention to our concerns. He took us to every single co-op in New Rochelle, Pelham and Larchmont that could possibly meet our needs and when we finally found one that we wanted, he went above and beyond to ensure that the deal got done. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and has a great network of contacts that he can draw on. He patiently took us through every single step of the process. I don't think we would have been able to find a place without his help and he was definitely the most important part of the process. Although it was challenging at times, Owen somehow managed to keep us all smiling and happy. At the end of it all, he felt like a member of the family. My mom has already invited him over for dinner. Words cannot express how lucky we feel to have found Owen. I say with certainty that you could not find a better agent no matter how long you looked. I would recommend Owen to anyone and everyone.

Please note: our house is not a multi-family. It is a single-family residence. Here is my review: This is your guy. Warm, kind, funny, smart, but more importantly, incredibly hard working, knowledgeable and very, very good at his job. We gave Owen the unenviable task of finding us the perfect house while we were living overseas. That task grew even trickier as we were unfamiliar with the area and kept changing our minds as to what we wanted! We were able to take a couple of trips to New York, but the vast majority of the legwork was done by Owen. Our search had Owen going from Southern to Northern Westchester, and all parts in between. I am positive that we would not have our beautiful home if it weren't for Owen, his hard work, knowledge and flexibility. We would not hesitate to work with Owen in the future, and will recommend him very strongly to anybody. I simply cannot imagine a better real estate agent. Owen is an absolute gem. Thanks, Mr. B!

Owen was a fantastic agent. My fiance and I are first-time homebuyers and were a little uncertain with the whole process. Owen helped at each step of the process, and made sure we were comfortable with everything that was happening. When it looked like the deal might blow up because of the seller's inaction and inability to respond to emails, Owen went out of his way to contact the seller's agent and see what the real story was. He, more than our lawyer, was the one who made sure this deal happened. I would enthusiastically recommend Owen to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Westchester area - you can be sure that he will look out for your best interests and get the deal done. And keep you smiling throughout the whole ordeal as an added bonus.

We just closed on our first house with Owen. Before we met him, we had spent almost three years looking for the right house, and now, we finally got what we were looking for. Owen is very patient, responsive, extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional and friendly. Owen was an invaluable source of information and good advice, and he also put us in contact with people who proved very helpful during this process. We were amazed by his negotiating skills - with Owen we finally understood the purpose of a buyer's agent. With his help, the whole buying process went quickly and smoothly. It was pleasure to work with Owen, and without him, we probably wouldn't be buying anything yet.

Owen is a customer oriented professional. He focuses on delivering high quality and personal service. Owen came recommended to us and he more than satisfied our expectations. I would team with Owen again on the sale of my home without any hesitation whatsoever! He is a top flight RE salesperson and a terrific human being. Thank you Owen!

We had wonderful experience with Owen. He is very professional. The whole process went so smooth that we did not even realize one fine day we were homeowners. Very approachable and was always available, believe he answered his phones even before it rang. His presence did not finish on day of closing but he is still helping us with settling. He knows every ins and outs of the area and is practically a yellow book. Cannot imagine going through it without Owen. Will highly recommend to every prospective homebuyer.

Owen is a remarkable person as he is a real estate serviceman. He gives every ounce of his energy to find the right match for the buyer as well as the seller. He was diligent and forthcoming as well as going out in all directions to help us get our home both on and then off the market. The economy this year was and still is a tough one but he hung in and everything worked out. You know you have someone in your court with a wonderful attitude throughout the process!

Owen went over and above our expectations. Very patient and helpful during the home search. We ended up getting a very nice price on our home. Really proved himself when we had difficulties in getting our mortgage. Owen stepped in and did absolutely everything humanly possible to expedite the process. Without exaggeration -- we would not have our home today without Owen's help.

We highly recommend Owen to anyone who is in a house search. When we first met Owen through Redfin, we were very impressed by his professionalism and extensive knowledge about the real estate market. As time went by, we realized that knowledgeably and professionalism are not the only traits that is impressive about Owen. He is very patient with us. As first-time house buyers, we didn't have a completely clear picture of the house we wanted to buy. After seeing dozens of houses with Owen in one particular area, we realized that area was not the place we wanted to live in. We told Owen that we wanted to start looking at other areas instead. Owen was completely understanding. We've heard stories about agents that would push their customers to buy any house they see in order to get their commission sooner and move onto other customers. This was never the case with Owen. He would actually warn us against bad deals and help us negotiate with sellers to get a price as good as possible. He was very responsive to emails and calls. He would even reply within minutes when he was on vacation. This may be bad for his kids, but as customers we couldn't ask more. :) All of these great qualities of Owen stems from his true care for his clients. He would go out of his way for the interest of his customers. He brought gifts for our newborn son. He reminded us of the Redfin discount after the closing. He gave us numerous excellent advice on finding contractors on renovation, getting the house more energy efficient, etc. In sum, he treats us not only as customers, but also as friends. Having Owen as our real estate agent was the best experience we had during the house search. We highly recommend Owen to anyone who wants to buy a house!

The best decision I could have ever made was contacting Owen to help us in our house hunting. Owen is a great and hard-working realtor and very patient. Since we were 1st time home-buyers, Owen was the absolute best in helping us get through the process. We had quite a few difficulties and hurdles to get through with the bank and thought we would never get to closing. Any time I had a question or problem, Owen was always available with an idea on how to solve the problem and went out of his way to get it solved. Owen even made himself available to us while he was out of the country. I wholeheartedly recommend and cannot recommend enough, Owen as the realtor that will stay with you from the beginning right to the closing table.

Owen was invaluable to me throughout the entire marketing and sales process. I was always able to count on him and called upon him often. I am intimately involved in the real estate field and I have little faith or respect for most real estate agents as they generally lack professional knowledge, with an exception being Owen. I could always count on him for a true opinion and honest answer and not simply lip service.

Owen was THE solution to our problem. We live in another state and needed to sell our condo in New Rochelle. A long-distance sale presents its own share of headaches, but our experience with Owen was nothing short of spectacular. Not only did he succeed where others had failed, he succeeded with kindness, professionalism, and boundless energy. Not once did a phone call to Owen go unanswered. Not once was a question not handled thoughtfully, thoroughly, and expertly. Owen is knowledgeable and savvy, and an agent in the truest sense: he represents your interests as his own. I cannot sing Owen's praises loudly enough, and I recommend him without reservation. He is the best!

We had worked with a number of agents prior to bumping into him while attending one of his open houses. He immediately tuned into what we were looking for, our needs as a family and became a trusted resource for us from that day on. While all the other agents were wasting our time showing us homes that were not what we wanted and even poorly negotiated on our behalf on a number of properties, Owen showed us a couple of houses that he knew we'd like, were in our price range and could add some ideas to improving the house. He was truly masterful and my family and friends couldn't believe that the other agents from different brokers could even make a living with their lack of follow through, inability to listen and ultimately close on a sale. While every other agent was biding their time during a very difficult real estate market, Owen was out in the field, working for his clients, whether buyers or sellers. He is a professional. An excellent, reliable businessman that we have and will continue to recommend to anyone.

Passion for real estate - look no further… Owen helped us find a new home in New Rochelle last year. He understood right away what we were searching for and we only looked at three homes to find the right one. Owen is enthusiastic, a problem solver and has a true understanding of the business. Buying and selling a primary residence is always very emotional and Owen knows how to bring together all parties involved in a productive and positive environment. Also, Owen has an amazing network of people from all business branches to draw from. These resources are helpful in providing information and facilitating purchase/sale related issues, ensuring a smooth transaction. Apart from that, Owen will go to great lengths doing his own research on any question a buyer/seller may have on design or construction and improvement, turning this stressful time into a great experience. We will definitely engage Owen again in the future and recommend him highly.

Carol helped me find a great co-op that fits my needs. We probably looked at 25 properties in total (13 in one day!) and she never got tired or impatient. She always quickly responded to my emails or questions and was very knowledgeable and helpful about the buying process. I had never bought  property before and she certainly made the process easier. I would definitely recommend Carol and hope I am able to work in the future if I ever am looking to buy or sell again!

We attempted briefly to see by owner and quickly realized that route wouldn't be quick. A neighbor had just retained Carol and immediately were under contract. In truth, our engagement with Carol was brief in that we too then sold our home quickly and for our asking price. We had an old home and  Carol postponed the conversations very well so that our buyers did not ask for too much in terms punch lists. We priced our house based on its existing condition and then Carol provided the air cover.

We, THOROUGHLY, enjoyed working with Carol. From start to finish, she was as professional as they come. She helped us find a home in a great town, in a great school district and close to places we often visit. Not only did she help us find a great place to live, she was on point with all the  recommendations to get the deal done from lawyers to inspectors to places to eat. And, to top it off, she had incredible patience with my high-energy, now five year-old son. On one of the visits, my son saw a couple of Dr. Seuss books in one of the kids' rooms and showed a lot of interest. On the VERY next visit, Carol greeted us with those same books, which she had at her home from her kids' childhood. Doesn't get much better than that!!

Carol and her team (co-list partner Nancy Strong) were instrumental in getting my home sold quickly. They guided me through a difficult process of deciding what work that I needed to do to get my house show ready. Always accommodating and very professional, they held my hand through a 3 month  renovation, expertly marketing my finished project, and expertly getting a fickle buyer to close on my property. I could not have sold the house without them.

To sum up the experience we had with Carol in a few sentences does not seem possible. She always kept our best interest in the journey to find a home.

We can not  thank her enough for the professional, caring nature she applied to the search.

If you are looking for a real estate agent to represent you, based on our experience, look no further than Carol Marrone. Carol has the right blend of warmth and professionalism. She is patient, calm, considerate and well organized. She educated us on the process of selling our house and kept us  very well informed. She displayed excellent taste and judgement in staging our house for sale and she expertly developed a strategy for marketing our house, which resulted in a quick sale. Moreover, Carol was always quick to answer any question we had and she never applied any pressure on us, including during the all important sale price negotiations, which she conducted wisely. Carol was helpful in many different ways during the sale process and in the period before the closing, as well as afterward when we were in a hotel before leaving the area, when another agent might have considered their involvement with us done. She takes a personal Interest in her clients. One wants her as a friend.  Carol is a gem and one could not choose a better agent to represent them. We give her our highest recommendation.

We had the very good fortune of having Carol Marrone as our real estate agent as we navigated an international move from Switzerland to the USA this year. We were a little nervous about renting a house in a new country without seeing it first, but with Carol's great service, we felt we were in  solid hands. Carol helped us every step of the way. Her local knowledge, responsiveness and overall kindness helped us to find a great house from abroad. I met Carol while on an initial scoping trip of Westchester County in March. It was too early to find a house for our move in July, but she took the time to show me a number of properties and get to know our family's needs. Thereafter she sent properties to review online, answered questions and visited houses on our behalf. I thoroughly appreciated Carol's candour and honesty about the pros and cons of each property. When we decided on the house we wanted, Carol continued to support us throughout the process and even after we moved in. She has been wonderful about helping us get settled and to know the area. We are delighted with our house in a great neighbourhood. Without hesitation we would highly recommend Carol Marrone.

Carol delivered expert service with a strong sense of urgency. We found the house we loved with her help, and she closed the deal quickly and swiftly, despite a seller that was a complete headache. We were so pleased with her service we decided to ultimately have her sell our home when we moved  to CA. On the market for 30 days, quick closing, and no surprises. We wouldn't think twice referring her, or using her again if we relocate back to the East Coast.

To say that Carol helped my husband and I buy our first home would be an understatement. She was a thoughtful, responsive and considerate partner who guided us through a very daunting process. Her knowledge of the local area helped us narrow our search over a 2 year period and her expertise aided in simplifying the process. Carol took a very no-pressure approach and was very flexible in showing us what we wanted to see and making suggestions that we could have interest in.

Every weekend we would leave the comfy confines of our Manhattan apartment and venture north to Westchester in an attempt to find a place to move our small, but growing family. Carol listened to us, laughed with us, and most importantly, guided us through the wilds of Westchester. Well, at least we thought they were wild. She walked us through the whole process from the moment we saw our house till the day we held our new keys in our nervous hands. I recommend Carol Marrone, she found us the house of our dreams.

Carol came to us by word-of-mouth with excellent references. She exceeded our expectations. We had very idiosyncratic needs and a short time frame in which to find the ideal home for us. We went house-hunting for several months with Carol. Her even-keel personality put us at ease. She never made us feel as though we were pushing her too hard given our urgent needs to find a house. On the contrary, Carol came to understand our needs; she seemed as committed as we were to finding our ideal home. In addition, she counseled us to pass on opportunities that did not make sense. Carol is intelligent, proactive, patient, and particularly skilled at negotiation. She readily gains the confidence and respect of all parties she deals which enabled us to negotiate the best deal. In short, Carol is a seasoned real estate professional who stays focused on the task. She is also pleasant and professional. We recommend Carol without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell or rent a home.

9/26/14

Carol's profile falls far short of accurately describing this consummate professional. Please read the description again about her style and approach. Professional, knowledgeable, honest -- check. Then, add to that perseverance, a great sense of humor, and compassion. Carol sold our home over a year ago, during a very difficult market. She never gave up. She never let us give up. She guided us through a very difficult out of state relocation. She got the job done, even after we had relocated. We had the utmost confidence that Carol was there looking out for us when we were several thousand miles away. Throughout, she remained the same -- cool, calm, collected, professional. Oh, back to the honesty part. At the first meeting, she was not afraid to pull any punches on the shortcomings of our property. She did it with kid gloves on, of course. But we appreciated her perspective because we followed her advice (which was contrary to opinions from other agents we had interviewed) and in our mind it made the difference as they really improved the property. I would highly recommend Carol if you are in need of a great real estate agent.

Cari Mermelstein


Molly S.
Pelham, NY
Cari Mermelstein has been a very attentive agent for my husband and I. When we met her we explained our circumstances surrounding the sale of our house. They were a little unconventional as we had one more child in school and we're waiting for my husband's retirement. She really had a great understanding of our situation and marketed our house to fit our circumstances. If I had an A-team she would be on it!

We met Cari completely by accident when we stopped in at an Open House she was hosting. We were checking out the house for our son and his family who were in the market for a new home. We spent about an hour talking to her and were impressed with her real estate knowledge. My son wound up purchasing the home. 
A few weeks later, when we were ready to list our own home in Pelham for sale, we interviewed several realtors and decided to give Cari the listing. We were impressed with herprofessionalism from day one. In only 3 days we had 6 offers on the house, all of them well over asking price!
Cari guided us in choosing the best buyer and we had signed contracts in less than a week!  We are in the process of building a new home which will not be complete until spring 2017.  Cari was able to find us a lovely temporary home just 3 blocks from our new construction.
Throughout the entire process Cari would check in with us just to see if we needed anything.  She was always available up to and after the closing. We always found her to be most competent and professional. We would definitely recommend her whether you are buying or selling.

"Ilisa was a true pleasure to work with. She worked closely with us to thoughtfully select properties to view based on our needs. We were looking for a co-op for my husband's mother this time, and Ilisa made what could have been a stressful process, a very pleasurable purchasing experience. Additionally, she closely managed the complex co-op buying process, gently prodding all involved parties along and prepping us well for what to expect and how to handle everything. I definitely recommend Ilisa to others and would not hesitate to engage her again for our future real estate needs."

Susan Reddy

Susan Reddy was our real estate agent when we sold our home in Pelham Manor last year. She is an experienced professional and was able to give us an accurate assessment of the current market and a realistic plan for selling our house. Susan was very attentive to the particulars of the transaction and responsive to all of our requests. We felt confident in following her guidance and direction, and were able to sell our home very quickly and at a very favorable price.We would highly recommend Susan Reddy without hesitation.

Sellers, Peter & Mary Durning – Pelham Manor

We have used Susan Reddy as buyers (twice) and as a seller (once). We met Susan in 2009, when she patiently saw us through the process of purchasing our first home. We knew nothing about home ownership, and she advised us wisely and calmly every step of the way. We loved our first house, but outgrew it after six years, so naturally we turned to Susan to help us sell it and to find a new house in Pelham. She helped us stage our home, advised us to hold out for our asking price, which we got, and we had a deal in less than 30 days after going on the market.

After the sale of our house was completed, Susan (who had been showing us houses informally for a year already, to help us information-gather) and we began our search in earnest. After about a month, we found the perfect home in Pelham, and were able to close on both the house we were selling and the house we were buying within weeks of each other.

My favorite thing about Susan (and it's hard to choose just one) is that she never pressured us - it never felt like she was trying to "sell" us something. She was always honest about shortcomings in houses, as well as their advantages, and her vast knowledge of the area (where most homes are old) was a big help in assessing value. She is unflappable, and a genuinely lovely person in every way. I would (and have) recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in Westchester.

Buyers, Sellers and Buyers, Annsley & Greg, Pelham

We met Susan as the seller's agent at an open house we attended, and her no-pressure style drew us back to seek her assistance in buying. She helped us transition from renting to owning a house in Westchester, filling a lot of gaps in knowledge along the way. We didn't know exactly what we wanted, but had some ideas of things that were appealing and things we knew we didn't want. She helped us figure it out by listening to us and learning our concerns and desires as we visited houses together. Susan always stayed on top of new listings, found reasonable options for us, and let us know if one would sell quickly and we'd need to move on it if we wanted it. She had lists of contacts for services we needed (lender, inspector, etc.) and her recommendations were always good and very prompt in responding to us. Perhaps the greatest part about working with her was having an ethical agent on our side who guided us through the process with the best intentions and within our own standards of integrity. We have kept in touch with her as we begin improvements on our new home!

She went above and beyond our expectations providing advice and tips to make the daunting international move as smooth as possible. As a result, we love the house and neighborhood we are living in. Dee is very professional, friendly, always available when we needed and quick to follow up. We had a very positive experience dealing with Dee and would happily recommend her to anyone.”

We were so fortunate to have found Deirdre Coffey when we were looking to rent in Westchester in November. As our Realtor, she helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. Deirdre is very dependable, kept communication open and was always available at any time to answer our questions or concern. She’s very understanding, hardworking and she strived to find us the house that meets our need. We would recommend her to anyone that is searching for a new home. Thanks again to Deirdre Coffey and Douglas Elliman team for being such a pleasure to work with.

I had a great experience working with Deirdre Coffey when buying my home. Dee quickly established a list of what I needed in my new house, and worked diligently to find the right house for me. She was always available when I had questions and concerns and ensured the process ran smoothly every step of the way.

I highly recommend Dee to everyone whether buying or selling a house. She is determined and efficient and she will work endlessly to get the job done.

Deirdre Coffey was a pleasure to work with. From the first email inquiry we sent to helping us through the application and leasing process, Deirdre always responded promptly and professionally. She always made time for us, whether we were requesting a second viewing or had questions along the way. I would work with Deirdre again in the future or recommend her to anyone else looking for an apartment.

Having worked with Dee over several weeks to rent out our condo in Briarcliff Manor, my fiancé and I can say we are extremely satisfied with Dee’s work. She is professional, courteous, and always quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. Dee always kept us in the loop for every showing that was scheduled and ensured we had an up to date play-by-play of the events for each day. The process went smoothly and left us feeling confident in our choice of tenants. Thank you, Dee for all your hard work!

"We engaged Dee to rent out our house furnished. To rent out a house furnished turned out to be a true challenge since renters prefer to bring their own furniture. Dee took on this challenge with great determination and enthusiasm and managed to find a very nice family that wanted to rent our house."

Best,
Helena
