Sold a home in 2014.
Lily recently helped me sell my studio apartment in Queens. She really knew her stuff and was able to find us a buyer within a week. Throughout the process, she was nothing but professional, friendly, and helpful. I really appreciated the fact that she was always readily reachable and very responsive. Selling a home can be a truly stressful experience, but I'm really glad I chose a great realtor that took one element of stress out of the whole situation. Thanks Lily!

Bought a home in 2013.
Local Knowledge: Before I contacted Susan, I had made a list of properties that I wanted to see in a couple of Queens neighborhoods. Since Susan knew Queens very well, she expanded my options by suggesting some properties in neighborhoods that I had not previously considered. Susan's insight into each location helped make my decision much clearer and easier.
Process Expertise: Throughout the entire process, Susan demonstrated intimate knowledge of the complicated home-buying process by explaining each step to me and preparing me for subsequent steps. Being a first-time home-buyer, I did not have a real-estate attorney or a mortgage originator in mind to use and Susan gave me trusted referrals who all performed greatly. Susan also has a solid understanding of the financial and legal aspects of the home-buying process.
Responsiveness: Susan responded in a prompt and timely manner throughout the entire home-buying process and I was able to reach her by both phone and email. When I was not able to take a call while at work, Susan left me voicemails to update me on the process or to answer a question I asked. After listening to her messages, I usually made follow-up calls that she patiently answered.
Negotiation Skills: I firmly believe that had it not been for Susan's understanding of the negotiation process, then my offer would not have been accepted over competing offers. Instead of simply increasing the purchase-price, Susan suggested that I include other clauses that ultimately made my offer more appealing than the others. Susan's understanding of both buyer and seller mentality is truly a testament to her abilities.

What else can I add? Olga sold my home in a tough market and we still got our price. You will not find better than her. She negotiated intelligently and wasn't afraid to be tough with me as well! I really respected that. She proactively sought out the listing and that's when I knew that she could sell the house.

Buying a Coop in NYC is a long and stressful process. She has an excellent communication, provided me very clear information and delivered all my expectation. Her team Mini, Olga and others, they are very easy to work with and provided me guidance for all types of paperworks and followed up with the vendor side. The communication between her team and I had been so good that we did not meet until the time of the closing. I work and I have limited time to work on all the up and down of buying process and Erica certainly delivered and did more that you expect. I will recommend her without any second thought to everyone. She is also very friendly and flexible. I am lucky to find her as my agent and no doubt to work with her as my agent in my next purchase.
I had written many agents, but Jonathan was the only one who responded quickly and stayed in close contact with me. He did a great job explaining the different application processes for different kinds of homes and always emailed me prospective apartments.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Malverne, NY.
We were fortunate enough to have assistance in purchasing our new home in Sea Cliff. We heeded her advice and involved her in of all of our decision making prior to and during the sale of our residence and purchase of our new home. She offered top notch consulting services in interviewing prospective mortgage brokers on our behalf and diligently vetting other third party service providers. She guided us throughout the entire process and availed her services in a way that was unique and refreshing. From having experienced this process during the purchase of our first home without the help of a realtor, we fully comprehend the amount of stress and time spent searching for a new home without proper counsel. We understand and appreciate the value that she brought to the table and would be remiss if we didn't recommend her for others with plans of future sale or residential purchase.

Tenisha was helping us to find an apartment. She is definitely a knowledgeable and respectful professional. Unlike many other agents, she responded to our questions and requests in a timely manner. Moreover, she was always polite and customer-oriented. I will highly recommend Tenisha to anyone.
Tenisha was always available to answer all questions and concerns. She replied back to my emails and phone calls in a very timely manner. She was very professional and accommodating. I always recommend her to friends when they are looking to buy/rent/let homes.
Tenisha is a very sweet and compassionate agent. She listened to our needs and was able to show us several places that fit our preferences very well. She is very knowledgeable about the area she is working in and never takes very long to get back to you. She works very hard for her clients. We are very grateful to have been blessed with her presence. If you are lucky enough to get her you will be happily satisfied. Good luck hunting!
This was my first time buying a home. I had dealt with a few other brokers before connecting with Tenisha Davis. It was a daunting experience until I met Tenisha. From the minute we started working together the process became relaxed and she was always there to answer my questions and to keep everything moving forward. It was an amazing experience. I trust her like family or a lifelong friend. She looked out for me from every angle. She was knowledgable of every aspect of my search and purchase and stood by me all the way. It was a great experience because in addition to her professional skills and demeanor she is a fun person to be around.

My experience with Sam was first class he was very accomdating in showing me all the properties that I was interested in..he had very good knowledge with regards to the maintenance fees and explaining what addition costs would be involved with my mortgage ...over all a very nice guy honest and general I got the feeling like he cared about my happiness which was nice. I would one million percent recommend this man for your next real estate transaction.
They say buying a house is a major stressor in life and I agree. However, having a realtor advocate for you like Lily Tran did for us takes much of the stress away. She was there for us far beyond what any realtor's job description is. We were searching in vane for two years before we connected with Lily who provided us with our dream house immediately. Her dedication,honesty and integrity is augmented by her pleasant, patient personality. Anyone looking for a realtor need search no longer.... Lily Tran should be your destination.

I would like to write a few words about my experience with Sam! I met Sam at his office back in Feb and right away he made me feel very comfortable. He truly listened to what I exactly wanted in my coop. Then he explained the entire buying process to me and I signed up with him to represent me. I got an amazing place and couldn't be happier! Sam will be my Realtor for life!

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.
