Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $975K in Neponsit, Far Rockaway, NY.
I've dealt with a few R.E. agents prior to meeting Robin. None of them compares to Robin's knowledge, professionalism and honesty. She genuinely is trying to find you a home that works best for you. She always answers her phone or texts promptly and never missed an appointment to show us a home. She knows which homes are for sale before they are listed and knows everything about Belle Harbor and Neponsit. I can't find one reason why you would use anybody else. We are so happy with our new home and can't thank her enough. You will not be disappointed.

Robin Shapiro was a delight to do businss with. She seemed to have a never ending list of prospective buyers. When we agreed on a price, she handled all the details for us and all went well. If it's 'action' you want, Robin is for you.

Sold a Multiple Occupancy home in 2012 in Randall Manor, Staten Island, NY.
Robin Shapiro was able to sell my house where others have failed. She was able to arrange five showings on a single weekend !! In addition her knowledge of the market as well as her negotiating skills certainly did help. Robin was not only was successful in selling my home, she helped me get it ready for sale by anticipating possible problem areas that needed to be addressed. I highly recommend her.

I would highly recommend Robin as she went well beyond my expections. Arranging for a tag sale as well as carting away any items not sold. She was professional at all times and always returned calls right away. In a very difficult market she was able to sell the house quickly and for a good price.

Property manage a home.
Robin has helped us a great deal with our refinance. She put us in touch with all the right people, including Ken Weiss of Diversified Funding. She has always answered all of our questions immediately! She sold our neighbor's house within a few weeks and even helped them sell their belongings that they couldn't take in their move! I highly recommend Robin! She has been a pleasure to work with.

Sold a home in 2012.
I would like to thank Robin for helping selling my home in Belle Harbor. Your appraisal of the house, the knowledge of the local market and the way you always returned my phone calls promptly, and touching base every 1 or 2 weeks was very re-assuring. I was also impressed with the amount of advertising you did online and offline at no cost to me, so there was no risk on my part. The result, the house is sold! Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Belle Harbor, Far Rockaway, NY.
Robin had several offers for our house and sold it within ten days of listing it. She utilizes print and internet advertising with direct links to her listings and to her. Robin is knowledgeable about the area, has excellent resources at her fingertips to make the process proceed as smoothly as possible. She is very responsive and answered questions we had in a timely manner. We are glad we chose her...she gets the job done!

Showed home in 2011 in Rockaway Park, Queens, New York, NY 11694.
We contacted Robin as buyers interested in a specific single family home. She showed us the house several times.

I did not feel that she was forthcoming about the seller's intentions, at one point suggesting a possible price below the asking, then later saying the sellers were not willing to negotiate.

She also did not seem to understand "the comps" at all. We were looking at a "five" bedroom, but of course the number of bedrooms is plastic. The comps are not based on the number of bedrooms, but actually the square footage, neighborhood and other things of course. The five bedrooms could easily be three depending on how you configured the house. But she would not hear these facts.

Looking at her other properties, She seems dedicated to representing sellers who demand a 2006 price.

She was also not very knowledgeable about the cost of replacing the oil heating unit in the house. She claimed we could get a new furnace for free. But when I checked to get the real details about the cost, I found that the best deal available was a 60% of cost deal.

Finally she was completely silent about what caused very bad water damage to the living room ceiling. But after showing the house to us the second time, she said a repair man had come to fix the damage. But she wouldn't let me talk to the repair man. The problem with that approach is that even a very good engineering inspection could not possibly reveal the cause of the water damage once the damage had been repaired.

Although we contacted her several times trying to follow-up, she did not respond.

Not happy with the experience at all.
