    I met Brigitte Goldenberg in 2000 when she helped me find what remains one of my most favorite apartments since moving to Manhattan in 1986 as a young, single woman. She became my go-to source on all real estate matters, a true friend and, thanks to her extraordinary listening skills, someone who understands me, my tastes and what is right for our family intimately. Because of this, with every transaction since, she has worked intelligently and efficiently to help us find apartments that have been right for us given our stage in life. We recently moved into a stunning new apartment on Riverside Drive—a dream, really—and that we were able to ultimately acquire the apartment is in large measure thanks to Brigitte. You have to be highly professional to succeed at her level, but I would qualify that by saying that she is upbeat, very diligent, extremely hard working (not something I have always found in this business) and always good to her word. She focuses on what is right the client, rather than the deal. As such, she has our loyalty, respect and highest recommendation.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Upper West Side, New York, NY.
    Primary point of contact: Brigitte Goldenberg

    I have worked with Brigitte Goldenberg for the past 9 years and highly recommend her to manage any of your RE transactions. She has helped me buy and sell properties in NYC, has found tenants for rental, and has stepped above and beyond to manage properties I own. Being an overseas client, Brigitte is my go-to real estate agent and always handles issues immediately, is well connected with lawyers and contractors, and knows the city like the back of her hand. It is with great pleasure that I recommend Brigitte and the entire team and I hope you will find your home, whether rental or sales, through them.  More Less

    Sold a home in 2013 in Midtown, Manhattan, New York, NY 10020.

    It is with pleasure that I recommend Vannessa Kaufman with any real estate transaction- she is , knowledgeable, highly competent, and a pleasure to deal with. She made both the sale of my home and purchase of the new a much more enjoyable experience than might have been.
