Having Lorraine as my broker to help find a rental for my wife and I was a very good experience for me. She set up the visits to look at a number of apartments that were exactly what we were looking for and we saw them in a very efficient manner. Her social skills were personable and sensitive to our stress issues of finding a place to live in the New York City area. She took us to see several two bedroom rental units in Washington Heights and Jackson Heights and all had good access to subways, shopping and cultural life in which we were interested.
I started my initial apartment search online. It was my first time looking for an apartment in New York City so I was a little nervous about the process. I was conducting research on the areas of New York City I would target and, during my search, I sifted through various apartment listings, I was interested in a few apartments and made my inquiry through the email contact function. This is how I first had the pleasure of corresponding with Lorraine. Within a day, Lorraine called me back with various listings and I was able to meet with her the same day to view apartments. In view of the fact I had a flexible move in date, Lorraine provided me with various options that fit my needs, neighborhood, timing and budget. Needless to say, Lorraine was well-prepared. She had extensive knowledge about the apartment, management company and neighborhood. I felt like I could trust her judgment. Ironically, Lorraine had suggested one more apartment closer to my job ( a neighborhood I hadn't previously considered). The apartment was everything I needed and had the added convenience of being within a 5 block radius of my job. I saw the apartment on Thursday night and by Tuesday evening I was moving in. I was extraordinarily lucky to meet Lorraine. If you are looking for someone competent, professional, attentive and knowledgeable, I would highly recommend working with Lorraine. Good luck!
Lorraine was a really great broker & helped me find just the right apartment that would fit my needs. It was a gorgeous building, and right in my budget range. I couldn't recommend Lorraine more highly.
Lorraine is a breath of fresh air!
After dealing with so many rude and incompetent agents we were recommended to Lorraine by a friend. After exchanging a few emails I knew we had found the one! Buying a home is a very trying process, and having an amazing agent like Lorraine made it so much less frustrating and actually kinda pleasant. I would recommend her over and over again. She's honest, upfront and very polite! Everything you could ask for in an agent.
If there was a better rating than 'A', Lorraine would get it. She was absolutely instrumental in helping us purchase our first home this year. She was always quick to respond to all of our nervous emails, patient as we went through house after house that we didn't like, and when it came time to put an offer on THE house, she put together a fantastic package for us. We are absolutely positive that we would not have gotten our house if it wasn't for Lorraine.
