I had a great experience with the Bracha Group’s, Cindy Kim, on my arduous search for an apartment in Manhattan. Cindy Kim was knowledged in the real estate market and set realistic expectations given my budget and wish list. Cindy worked hard until the very end to make sure I was exposed to all the available apartments that fit my criteria. This provided a stress-free hunt and ultimately resulted in the perfect apartment. Her hard work ethic has made me a loyal customer. I've already referred the Bracha Group to several friends and will continue to remain in contact for future real estate needs.

Found a tenant for a home.

An unforgettable and seamless experience. I reached out to Lisa Joa and she introduced me to Hila Peled, both from the Bracha Group and I was impressed from th start. I told them what I wanted and by when and they closed the deal. I didn't need to get involved much and they found the perfect tenants. I want to say that Lisa and Hila were professional, knowledgeable, patient, and ambitious. I never had to chase them down to get an update, they provided daily updates and were phenomenal with not providing too much detail. I would highly recommend Lisa and Hila from the Bracha Group.  More Less

Sold a Other home in 2013 in Murray Hill, New York, NY.

We had a great experience working with the Bracha Group’s, Cindy Kim. We asked Cindy to be our realtor because we were having trouble finding the best apartment to move into. After we talked with her, she understood what we wanted and knew exactly which properties to show us. She put us at ease and made it a stress free experience. Cindy started working with us right away. She knows the area extremely well and showed us a long list of apartments until we picked the one we liked the most. Without Cindy’s hard work, dedication and support we would have never found our dream home. Cindy was very kind and thoughtful and was always there to answer our questions. Her willingness to make us happy was exemplary. Cindy had a great attitude and should be an example for other realtors to emulate. She also worked very hard in getting us the best price for our dream home. We will always recommend Cindy for anyone moving to the city.  More Less
