Bought a home in 2015 in Upper East Side, Manhattan, New York, NY 10128.

Florence walked us through the process of purchasing our first home. From accompanying us to open houses through our closing, she was there to advise us every step of the way. She negotiated skillfully to help meet our needs and concerns. She was very responsive to us throughout the process - via phone, text, or email. She kept us up to date on any changes that arose and got us to closing very smoothly. I highly recommend seeking Florence as your broker. She will listen to your needs and concerns and help you find the home you are looking for.  More Less
