I met more than 5 brokers this time. Eileen is the best one for me. She listened very carefully so that she can understand what I need. And, she work very hard. Response quick and effective. Every step she is always ahead from other brokers. Most important, she can always think in my way, my position. She never push me to buy higher price apartment which other broker did. The last thing I want to mention is her profession. She cooperated very well with sellers brokers, attorneys, and properties managers as well. I'll strongly recommend Eileen to my friends.
Some time ago I was reading The New York Times real estate section. It has long been a regular pastime for me, and I perused the articles much as an armchair traveler might read the travel section -- always imagining the places we might ultimately be able to use as a pied-a-terre--but always deterred by the prospect of being shown places far out of our budget, or being railroaded in a direction we didn't want to take.
That day I read "The Hunt," a regular feature in The Times. It described a couple looking for an apartment. As most buyers do, they had specific requirements for location, type of space, and budget. The realtor who helped them find their perfect apartment was Eileen Kim. A link led me to Bond New York, and to Eileen in particular. Eileen's web page at Bond made her sound too good to be true. I assumed that she would be inundated with prospective clients after this type of publicity, but e-mailed her anyway. In spite of a busy schedule, she responded in less than 24 hours, and we made plans to begin looking at apartments.
Throughout the search process Eileen was intelligent, efficient, sensitive to our needs and preferences. She did not show us a single apartment with a higher listing price than we had set. She patiently explained the idiosyncrasies of the New York real estate market, and was honest in her estimates of how well each property might suit our requirements. I felt as though a friend, with our best interests at heart, was guiding us through this process.
We couldn't be happier with the coop we found. The only sad part: I wish we could start all over, just to keep working with Eileen!
Eileen was instrumental in helping me find the right home at the right price. Her knowledge of the area was superb and that helped a lot in narrowing my search. I would highlight Eileen's honesty and authentic concern for her client. She was very interested in knowing about my situation and steer me into the right home (not the one i originally imagined!). The buying process was a breeze: she helped me navigate the complexity of Manhattan real estate market, I didn't have to do much.
I would strongly recommend Eileen as a real estate broker on the grounds of her honesty and genuine care for her clients.
Bought a Cooperative home in 2013 in Sutton Place, New York, NY.
Eileen Kim assisted me in the purchase of a coop apartment in the midtown East section of Manhattan. I found her to be very perceptive about my needs and desires, warm and friendly and irreproachably capable in all aspects of the transaction.
