Dear Hilah,

Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in to help me find a stellar apartment! I really appreciate how on top of everything you were, even when we were hit with unexpected things. Your honestly and work ethic really helped facilitate this incredibly nebulous process for me, and I greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so much,

808 Ave C

“Hilah was a great guide throughout the whole buying process - we had no idea what we were getting into and it ended up being easier than we thought!

She would send us itineraries for every Sunday we were in town, and even though I felt I was on top of Streeteasy, she found the place we ended up buying.

She recommended an attorney, a mortgage broker and a home inspection firm, and everything went very smoothly.

I highly recommend working with her!”

It was great working with Hilah. We were introduced through a friend. She responded quickly and understood the market and was able to guide and support our efforts in finding a new place in the city. It was great to work with someone so professional and personable and who was able to move at the speed we needed. We are thrilled with our new place and could not have done this without Hilah's expertise, experience and service oriented approach.

Hilah navigated me through the process of buying a coop in Manhattan, which is not easy. My deal had a number of twists and turns, and Hilah professionally guided me through a difficult and emotional process. Hilah's experience, expertise and responsiveness were instrumental in closing this deal. I am so glad that Hilah and I became fast friends on the tennis courts years ago for many reasons, one of which is that this friendship had a hand in leading me to my new wonderful home. I highly recommend Hilah for all of your New York City real estate needs and desires.

“Hilah is an exceptional agent, I consider myself blessed to have met her--we live in the same neighborhood and met socially JUST at the right moment as I was considering buying but hadn't the first idea how the process worked.

She was able to jump on board very quickly and help me through an array of questions, and manage the process from start to finish with a smile. Our purchase has had some challenges and she has always been there right away to jump in, calm my frayed nerves, and help usher us to the next step. She guided us with honesty (including steering me away from a more expensive property), an eye for our life and preferences, and a real genuine nature that is rare to see in NYC real estate.

I would happily recommend Hilah to anyone looking to move or sell in NYC - an expert professional and an amazing person!”

“Our experience as first-time buyers with Hilah has been great from start to finish. We were connected to her by chance through StreetEasy, but knew she was the right guide for our entire Brooklyn real estate hunt. Hilah was patient with us and explained every step of a very complicated process, including differences between co-ops and condos (and pros and cons), and even eased some of our jitters once we had put in an offer. Ultimately, her tips were what led to our offer being accepted! She then helped us put together the board application and was always eminently accessible to us throughout the rest of the way as we played the waiting game.

In short, while our hunt took several months to reach a happy conclusion, it was all very manageable and pleasant thanks to Hilah. We can't recommend her enough if you're looking for someone to guide you through the ins and outs of Brooklyn real estate!”

“In a place like New York, one is constantly on the move. Circumstances change, kids grow up, life happens. We have had to move three times since 2012. Before our first move, we met Hilah and ever since then there has never been a question for us as to whom we would ask to help when we needed a new home. It has always been Hilah!

Hilah is super professional! She always remember our preferences, even after several years, is always attentive to every detail and need, respectful and flexible with time, responsible with promises and commitments.

Hilah has a lovely personality and is always a welcome guest at our housewarming parties and has basically became a family friend.

With Hilah, the expression “pleasure to do business with” is literal.”

Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication-- we truly appreciate it!

Dear Hilah

I wanted to thank you first for your dedication professionalism and patience in helping us to rent our apartment at 88 Greenwich Club. We would recommend you to our friends and will be happy to work with you in the future.

“For a while I debated not having an agent at all, because I tend try doing most things DIY...but I'm really glad I didn't. You proved to be an invaluable resource and I can't imagine how much I would have screwed up without having you there. I'll definitely recommend you for anyone looking in the future!”

“When we were challenged with moving to NYC from the Long Island suburbs were lucky to find Hilah. She had the knowledge and experience with the neighborhoods and property types to calm our anxieties.

Hilah guided us through the qualification process to rent a beautiful Midtown penthouse apartment. We could not have done it without her. When we chose to move to the Upper West Hilah worked hard to find places for us and was truly happy for us despite the fact we found a by-owner rental and rented without fees.

When it came time for us to buy we went straight to Hilah and she worked tirelessly for months to find our new home. She listened to our desires and was patient as we changed our minds about neighborhoods, property types and prices. When we started the buying process she helped us negotiate with the seller. When it came to getting the loan, qualifying and navigating the closing process her experience and creativity made the difference between us being able to close or losing our home. In particular, her relationships with loan institutions and legal counsel were invaluable to us.

We are moved in now and loving our new home. We could not have done it without Hilah.”
