"A special heartfelt 'THANK YOU' for the three wonderful tenants you rented apartments to in my building. I want you to know they are terrific and working out well. I am grateful for your efforts." - Eileen, Building Owner/Sponsor East Village
"Katya knows the area of the city I was interested in and worked smoothly with me and other realtors. She understood my concerns and was my advocate in making a deal on the rental property I wanted. In addition, she offered expert advice on moving after I'd signed the lease. Katya combines personal charm with business expertise and knowledge. I will continue to refer her to friends looking to buy and rent in NYC." – Nancy L.
“Recently my wife and I had the absolute pleasure of working with Katya, who had been highly recommended to me by a friend on Wall Street. She is not only very professional but also pleasant to work with. She listened to our objectives and remained committed to our criteria from beginning to end of the process while making it painless and fun.”- Philip, Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
“As soon as I met Katya in person for the first time, I was confident that I was in good hands. She went above and beyond to accommodate my schedule and always booked convenient appointments to see the apartments on my list, even on a moment’s notice! More importantly, she was the key to closing the deal on my dream apartment. Her prompt attention to details, and passion and persistence with the process kept it from falling into different hands in this hot and volatile market. I could not have asked for a more dedicated, professional sales agent.” – Rita, Mount Sinai School of Medicine
“My experience with Katya put all other agents to shame! She was extremely professional, friendly, prompt, responsive, knowledgeable, attentive to our needs, and respectful of our budgetary considerations. Given my positive experience, I will continue to recommend her and Halstead to anyone who inquires. She is simply the best!” – James, Cornell Law School
“Relocating from Canada, I was expecting the international move to be stressful and difficult to say the least, especially in New York City. But thankfully I found Katya, who made it easy breezy! She was so friendly and knowledgeable about the process that it put me at ease from our first meeting until the last. Good realtors are hard to find so I consider myself fortunate to have found one of the greats.” – Sam, JP Morgan Chase
“We are so grateful to Katya for her help during the sale of our apartment. From the first open house until the closing, she was readily available to answer every question, keep us informed, and provide excellent advice. Fortunately, we found one of the rare agents who’s willing to put the buyer’s and seller’s interests before her own.” - The So Family, Carnegie Hill, Upper East Side
“I first met Katya over the phone and then later she visited me in Tel Aviv. I knew immediately that she was trustworthy and very knowledgeable about the Manhattan market, especially as it relates to a foreign buyer. Once I arrived in NYC, she showed me exactly what I was looking for, and within 24 hours I found an apartment to buy. Katya cooperated fully with the listing agent but negotiated a better price for us, including beneficial terms and conditions. More importantly, as a result of her due diligence, I was able to sell this condo 8 months later for $132,000 more than the purchase price.” – Edna, Yorkville, Upper East Side
“The transaction to close on the purchase of my first condo in NYC was very trying given the circumstances brought on by super-storm Sandy. But miraculously, Katya secured the closing date and made it happen with all parties. As a buyer from China, I am so grateful for her persistence and grace under pressure.” – Michael, Midtown West, Manhattan
