In order to get to closing, Florence has to be her New York City clients' strongest advocate.

She enjoys life in the city with her two-year-old schnauzer and is passionate about a few key things in life: dogs, fitness, travel, New York City and real estate. Follow

Found a tenant for a home.

Florence has an unbelievable work ethic! She is extremely efficient -- I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly she rented my apartment. She is thorough and professional, and has a wonderful working knowledge of the NYC real estate market. I highly recommend her and wouldn't use anyone else.

Bought a home in 2008.

Florence Sommer is, hands-down, the most brilliant, perceptive, knowledgeable, and talented real estate broker in all of Manhattan. Run, don't walk, to use her to represent you. She's absolutely the best. Her knowledge of the market and my building in particular is second to none.

Found a tenant for a Multi Family home in Upper East Side, New York, NY.

My family (including my mother) has been using Florence for many years - and have always had a positive experience - with her. She is intelligent, efficient, and very-experienced - esp. with NYC - upper east side - properties. I highly recommend Florence - for all of your real-estate needs (sales, rentals - etc.) ...  More Less
