We are delighted to recommend Erica Siegel. When we started looking for coops, no other agent would work with us. They did not believe us when we said that we were planning to buy 2 coops at the same time. Erica was the only agent who took the time to listen to our situation, and found a way to enable us to get what we wanted. Not only did she help us to buy 2 coops, she helped us to negotiate 2 terrific deals! Erica is very persistent. She got us in to see units that other agents had told us were not available, or were not being shown at that time. Erica has boundless energy and used it to go above and beyond our expectations of a real estate agent.

Lily provided excellent service throughout the entire process. She is very knowledgeable of the market and was very accurate in assessing the proper value for my property which sold quickly and at a price very much in the anticipated acceptable range. Lily went above and beyond in addressing myneeds and was always prompt and courteous. Anyone selling a property in this area should consider Lily Tran as she will represent you properly and with integrity.
Thanks for the card in the mail, we appreciate you taking time out of your day to write us a personal letter of appreciation. I know we have told you this many times, but without you and your great referrals to Olga and Arun, I don't know if today would have been possible. As oddly as it was to run into you that day on the street on Austin St. we knew that it happened for a reason, of all places to meet your agent ... that is where we met you. We knew we would call you when the time was right, had your card in my wallet since that day. We have told everyone we know about our experience and hope that one day they will come to us for a referral - and you are at the top of our list.
Thanks again for all of your efforts and we are always amazed of your positive attitude - it truly showed during your day of chaos and what happened to your car.
Hope all is well and we'll keep in touch. Rooftop celebrations come spring!

Lily was very helpful for us to sell our house for a decent price quickly. It took only a couple of weeks to get almost ten competivive offers. My husband and I are very satisfied by her diligent and positive attitude and her professinalism. Lily is also pretty knowlegable in real estate market and related issues. She is also very smart and so pleasurable to deal with. I highly recommand her if you are looking for a real estate agent for selling your house. You won't regret.
I recently closed on my FIRST home -a co-op in Forest Hills. Olga was wonderful since the day she showed me my future home and made the stressful/scary process a breeze. Olga helped me with my board package and in preparing for my board interview. I'm grateful that I had such a wonderful realtor that walked me step by step thru the process of buying my apartment. She is wonderful and I would recommend Olga to all my friends and family. Olga is professional and a dedicated real estate broker. Thank you, Olga!

As an agent you can not go wrong with Erica. She is the most patient and attentive agent there is. Erica was very infom about the market around our area and was very patient in educating us on pricing. Her marketing skills are superb and wented above and beyond what most agents will do. Where most agent will take photos with there camara phone and hope for the best. She actually sent a professional photograher to our place and took some excellent phots for the listing. She kept us up to date on the process and within two weeks got us, not only an offer but our ASKING PRICE. As far as agents go she is top-notch and would recommend her to any of our friends and family.

We highly recommend Erica Siegel as your real estate agent and our testimonial is one that exemplifies building a lasting relationship. We have known Erica for the past 3 years as she has worked tirelessly to help us rent as well as sell. Erica is excellent to work with and seeks only the best interests of her clients. After exhausting all efforts to sell the apartment in an extremely bad economy, we decided change the approach to rent it out instead. Erica was very understanding of the situation, quickly adjusted to the new direction and found us tenants to fill the void. Erica’s professionalism and patience sets her above and beyond your normal expectations of a real estate agent.

Erica helped me with virtually every aspect of my sale. Before listing my apartment, she educated me on my local market so that i knew what kind of pricing on my apartment was going to get me the sale i wanted in the amount of time i was looking for She then listed my apartment using all of the technology I could ask for: professional looking photography, a dedicated 800 line which was hooked up to her cell phone, and a web portal that allowed me to see what was going on in my local market. More importantly, Erica was there for me in other ways as well. Questions? She had answers... From helping me get my apartment ready for showing by referring a cleaning service to being in constant communication with me so that showing my apartment was virtually painless. Did I mention that she kept me and my buyers educated so that I was able to get within 2% of my asking price in less than a month of my apartment being listed? Then it came time for me to move. Erica to the rescue again! Even though she wasn't personally familiar with the area I planned to buy in, Erica connected me with an agent that was terrific. Very knowledgeable, patient despite my indecision on what to buy and particularly helpful throughout the entire process. Even after the closing, by giving me some advice on what renovations would be cost effective. Did I mention that Erica also put me in touch with a mover and electrician that did a great job? I can, without reservation, recommend Erica for all of your real estate needs. Don't worry about where you are buying and selling. If Erica can't help you personally she will put you in touch with someone that you can rely on. Stop reading reviews and call her immediately!

Erica Siegel has been very professional and proactive in my mission to find a home... Must say my situation was a bit different, relocating from abroad and providing all sort of documents via e-mail, speaking over the iphone apps, etc. Not to mention whe was able to find me a mortgage broker, laywer, and provide priceless advice during this journey. Must say she has extended herself more then I would have ever expected her to do.. I am very luck to find Erica during this process and would recommend here to anyone out there.. Though she has made me feel special, I know in my heart to hearts she treats all the same, with the utmost respect and class. Regards, Santo
Last year, following an often frustrating period of six month in which i attempted to purchase a co-op on my own, I retained Ms. Mayayeva's services as a certified buyer's representative. With a week of retaining her services, Ms.Mayayeva found for me two most desirable co-op apartments in the Georgetown Mews development in my price range. A week later, I was able to submit a final purchase offer and the final closing. Ms. Mayayeva made herself readily available to answer my questions concerning the purchase process. She followed up inquiries from Georgetown Mews board of directors concerning my purchaser's offer package. She made a challenging experience less arduous. Even though, it has been several month since the purchase of my co-op, both my levels of enthuasiasm concerning and appreciation of Ms. Mayayeva's services have not diminished with time. I would gladly recommend Ms. Mayayeva and Exit Kingdom Realty to anyone I know seeking to purchase a co-op or home.

It is with great pleasure I write this recommendation for my agent Erica Siege. From the very start when I was selling my co-op Erica was very attentive to our needs and spent a great deal of time making sure that we understood everything about the process of selling a co-op. I have sold many homes in my life but this was the first time selling a co-op. Erica’s vast knowledge and patience explaining and the process with my wife and me. I also would like to add that in my complex there are numerous apartments on the market and have been on the market for 1 to 2 years without selling. Erica’s expertise in preparing my wife and me on how to prepare the apartment for sale and arranging for a professional photograph helped display my co-op and find a buy within 2 weeks. Erica is a great agent and a terrific person with all her involvement in Leukemia and Lymphoma Society fund raiser. There is no better person then Erica.

Cherry has been nothing less then amazing throughout the buying process. She is very knowledgeable regarding the many rules and regulations regarding Co-op boards. Cherry had broken down the process explaining each stage of the process and telling me what to expect. I have and will continue to recommend Cherry!

Bought a home in 2012.
It is with great pleasure that i share my thoughts regarding Lily Tran, who is without a doubt one of the most professional people I have worked with. I did research and located Lily on my own. Her qualities go above and beyond being a broker. Lily is-- honest, perceptive, extremely smart and an excellent listener; all very important when any relationship is established and no different in the world of real estate. I am an extremely particular person with high expectations and Lily without ever seeming overwhelmed met my them at every point until the transaction was complete. Of note, Lily was pregnant and gave birth when my closing date approached and she still made it to the closing date with a warm smile and kindness that easily speaks to her character. If this is not the epitome of excellence, commitment and professionalism, I am not certain what is. In short, I could not have asked or chosen a better broker or a human being in making this journey to property ownership. I wish for all of you what I have already experienced first hand through Lily's finesse in the art of real estate. All the very best to Lily and her prospective clientele. Now if I could only find an attorney just like her, I will be on cloud nine!
Cherry is a vivacious, thorough, detailed, honest, upfront business woman who will help you find the home of your dreams. Although, I ended up purchasing the apartment I had lived in for 17 years; while I was exporing my options to move out and rent or purchase elsewhere she was an amazing help to me. I recommend Cherry highly.

We couldn't have asked for a better and more patient realtor than Erica. Nearly every weekend during the course of 5 months was spent looking for the right home for us newbies, and by the end of it we got to know her so well that we now consider her a friend. What my husband and I liked most about Erica is that she responded to every email, text and phone call - promptly. She understood that we were new at this and were nervous about the whole home buying process, and having her represent us at every viewing and during the negotiation assured us that someone with experience had our back. Erica went above and beyond to help us find and seal the deal on our first home. We couldn't be happier.
Jae was very attentive, and considerate. He was always willing to do what is needed to accommodate me and my preferences & schedule. I will be sure to use him again on my next sale & purchase.

Dear Mr. Koo,
A few days ago I entered into possession of my first house. Now I would like to thank your employee Olga Mayayeva for her help. Despite her representation of the seller she also gave me some advices and recommendations. It helped me to go through the whole process smoothly and with no trouble.
I wish you success in business as well as health and happiness for you and your employees.

Jae helped us buy a 2-bedroom condo in Flushing. He was very patient. The search took several months to find the right place at the right price and he helped us negotiate a fair price. We were very happy with Jae's work.

Jae is an excellent agent. This was my first time buying an apartment. While there were some hiccups in the process due to co-ops and sellers, Jae was on top of everything making sure that I was happy and in the know. If I ever had a question, I knew that Jae would have a response for me quickly. He's a very nice guy and I was very happy with him as my agent.
Posted by Heights83 on 10/03/2011
Jae is very knowledgable and patient. He listened to what I want for an apt and searched extensively within my criteria and budget. He had shown me many listings but never pushed me to make an offer on something I didn't like. He would provide me all the pros and cons for me to make the decision. I thank him for finding me a nice apt and his team for helping me
