Dear Stefani and Rob: 

How do you get an Irishman, a Singaporean and an Indian to live under one roof?"

Stefani and Rob... why you decided to get yourselves into this is baffling, but you guys have turned the most complicated living situation into a living paradise for my roommates and I. Thanks for everything.

Hey Cindy!
You set us up on East 51st Street two years ago. To your credit we went through with the place and our experience has been great! I also wanted to thank you for helping out a few of my friends. I shamelessly trumpet you to everyone and they have all spoken of their great experience.

I'm hoping you have finally taken your 10 years of accumulated vacation. You deserve it! Anyway, give me a call when you have some time. No rush, but I look forward to catching up.

Dear Joseph Hines:

After looking at over 10 no-fee Craig's List apartments in Harlem, my patience was wearing thin. Although I was skeptical of going through a broker, not to mention paying the fee, I met Joseph Hines of Dwelling Quest to look at an apartment on West 116th Street. He had talked it up on the phone, but having worked with many brokers looking to buy and rent, I didn't pay much attention to Joseph's pitch. After meeting me ON TIME, Joseph was true to his word, finding me a below-market, rent-stabilized 2 bedroom that was much larger and cheaper than the 1 bedroom I was moving out of due to a rent increase. My rent savings will more than make up for the broker fee. I was beginning to think that Central Harlem wasn't affordable anymore, but Joseph hooked me up.

Hi Medina,

People really scared me about the broker situation here. But you turned out to be very nice and pleasant. You called me frequently and kept me updated about the situation before I arrived here. That really helped me show that you cared about clients and build my confidence to pursue my apartment hunt with you. I'd definitely recommend you to my friends.

Dear Mike:

I wanted to take a minute to let you know how delighted Maggie is with her apartment and how appreciative we are of your help in getting the deal done. From being patient with the multiple personalities of our family, to finding just the right apartment from everyone's point of view, to traveling to Bay Ridge (!) in a snowstorm to be with us at the Board interview on the day of your departure for London , you were the consummate "pro" throughout.  If you ever need a client reference feel free to contact me.

Thanks again for everything, and I hope all's well with you.

Dear Stefani:

Thank you Stefani for finding us our new home! It was the first apartment I looked at with you and it was exactly what I was looking for and at the right price. Stefani was very efficient and organized with the entire process and made renting my new apartment very easy. She also went out of her way to help me find an affordable parking garage in the area so we could keep our car in the city.

Stefani is a great realtor, and I will definitely be referring her to anybody who needs a realtor in the future.

Thanks Stefani for all your hard work. I love the book too!

Sincerely,

Dear Stefani:

I “found” Stefani inadvertently by looking for apartments on the Internet.  What a happy accident!  I couldn’t have been more pleased by her services.  Not only did she find me the perfect NY apartment; she made sure to stay in touch and to keep the process moving forward long after her fee was paid.  I would recommend her to anyone looking for real estate in New York .

Dear Jacqueline:

I would like to let you know that I enjoyed viewing the apartments that you selected for me to view. I also thought that you were professional in handling the matter in such short notice. I really appreciate your assistance.  

You were responsive when I called you office to schedule an appointment. Your promptness is impeccable and that is a good quality to have. I’m very happy with the apartment that I chose and again I would like to thank you for all of your help.  

I hope we can do business again is the future.”  

Thanks for everything,

Hi Alex,

Now that I have a chance to catch my breath, I want to tell you that things are going great for me tks to you!  Without your help my life would have become a disaster. I know it sounds like I'm exaggerating but think about it... I would have had to put my entire apt into storage and chked into a hotel for who knows how long, it would have been so expensive and what a nightmare! I was in shock after the movers left here and I realized that you actually made it happen - you got me an apt to move into in 24 hrs! I really didn't think it was possible, or that you guys could pull it off - amazing!!! Not only did you get me an apt but it's a nice apt, I am very happy. Also remember that I was starting a new job, because I was able to move and get settled in a wk before my start date I was so prepared. I really doubt if I had been homeless I would have been able to take over everything so quickly in this new position so tks again. 

have a great day

Stefani,

We were very happy with the level of service that you provided us with our search of a rental apartment in Manhattan . You were resourceful and pleasant. I really appreciated the time spent with us looking.  Since we were living in Long Island at the time we were limited to times we were available to look for these apartments. You were great and if I need another apartment I would not hesitate to contact you again.

Andrew Horowitz 

When I moved to New York from San Francisco , I was so discouraged by the living options in Manhattan .  I felt that brokers weren't trustworthy, rents too high, and apartments too small!  Andrew saved the day when he suggested the perfect Murray Hill studio.  In Andrew I finally found an honest broker who listened to what I was looking for rather than trying to push low quality real estate onto his clients.  Andrew has excellent relationships in the real estate market which enabled him to find me a fabulous apartment in a well-maintained building with modern amenities in a great location, and at a reasonable price!  Lease signing, payment, and move in were fast and simple.  I highly recommend Andrew and Dwelling Quest to help find your dream apartment in Manhattan …it is possible!

Dear: Jeff 

This note is a long time coming, but as you can imagine it has been a crazy month.  

When I mentioned to some friends that I was going to purchase an apartment in NY, they all told me what a terrible and difficult process it would be, especially for a first-time buyer.  

The one element no one factored in, however, was that Jeff Silverstein would be handling my business.  You took a completely overwhelming and aggravating process and made it seem pleasant and manageable.  You made me feel like I was your only client every time I was with you.  

You care about what you do, you care that your client finds a place they like, you hustle to get appointments, and you return phonecalls within 15 minutes of me leaving a message.  After the purchase was done, you drove 3 hours over your New Years break, leaving your family in the Berkshires to meet me at a closing you didn’t even need to attend.  After the closing you managed to bring a bottle of Dom so I could celebrate the occasion.  

Jeff, the way you do business is the highest ethical level, the utmost caring, and unmatched professionalism.  Because of you, I not only have a home I love, but I didn’t lose any sleep in the process.  I hope you know how good you are at your job and that your employer appreciates it.  

Please use me as a reference any time, and I will be forwarding anyone I know who is looking for real estate in NY, to you.  As a small token of my appreciation, please enjoy dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, the Blue Water Grille.

My Best,

Stefani 

It was good fun and the fact that you were always available and very patient as we looked at “lots” of apartments was great. At the end of it all we found an apartment which we are very happy with. A job well done!

Stefani assisted me in renting a studio on 23rd St ; it's just the apartment I was looking  for. I had a positive experience looking for an apartment with her. She was very informative, straightforward, and earnestly tried to understand and relate to my needs.  She was engaging throughout the process (even though I had to wait for a while for the apartment to become available), and gave me all the information I requested while letting me make the decisions. I would recommend her services to anyone looking to rent in Manhattan . Thanks Stefani!

Sincerely,

Stefani captured us immediately, our life style and our possibilities. All the alternatives she showed us were valid options. We did not waste time; we did not see something not worth it. She knows her business. We are grateful we found something quite fast and we are very happy with it.  We will call her when we decide to buy one. 

Thanks,

Dear Eric,

I am writing you this letter to let you know that my fiancée and I really enjoyed working with Lianne.  She was very helpful and went above and beyond.  When we first met her, we weren't sure if we wanted to buy or rent.  She showed us apartments for sale and rent to help us decide.  We quickly decided to rent, and soon after that we found a beautiful apartment.  

Lianne was very responsive and in tuned with what we wanted and needed.  

Thanks again, Lianne!

To: Dwelling Quest

I really enjoyed working with Anna Zsigrai and Dwelling Quest.  When I started working with Anna, I had been looking for an apartment for about 2 weeks and had used one other agent.  Unlike the other agent, Anna did not pressure me to take the first few apartments she showed me, rather she was patient and diligent in looking for the best apartment for me.  I didn't know the city well since I had just relocated here from Chicago , so Anna's knowledge of the various Manhattan neighborhoods opened up several possibilities that met my requirements yet I had not considered.  In addition, she was very thorough about prescreening and researching apartments before we met so none of my time was wasted.  I plan to work with Anna if I move or purchase a home in the future and will recommend her services to my friends as well

Dear Alex,

After having an extremely negative experience with a broker from another firm, we were frustrated and desperate to find an apartment. Once we began working with Alex, the process from a breeze. He is so easy to work with, HONEST, and extremely helpful. If every broker in New York City was like Alex, brokers wouldn’t have a bad reputation.

Thanks, Alex, for turning our negative experience into a fabulous apartment.

To: Dwelling Quest

My husband and i worked with Cindy to find an apartment in NYC this past summer. We had a great experience! Cindy listened to everything we said and did not waste our time taking us to apartments that did not meet our criteria. Cindy was also very very patient with us - she never forced her opinions on us or tried to make us change our minds. In the past i had worked with brokers who were pushy and tried to force their opinions on you; this was not the case with Cindy. Her appointments were scheduled perfectly and she was always on time - another great trait!

Overall working with Cindy Gise was a great experience and i would highly recommend her to anyone looking to find their NYC home!

We just wanted to thank you for the beautiful vase and for all of your help in obtaining our new home! We look forward to having you over for dinner next year when the apartment is done! As I have been writing so many thank you notes lately (that wedding thing!) I couldn't recall if I had already sent you one-so either accept my apologies for a belated thank you, or consider this a double thanks!

Dear DQ:

I recently had the opportunity and good fortune of using Dwelling Quest to help me and my Fiancee find an apartment in Manhattan. I knew it was going to be a daunting task, as I had been through the process a few years earlier, and I was not looking forward to doing it again so soon. I found that Dweling Quest has practically RE-invented how realtors work, making the process of finding and securing a space effortless. I would not even think about using another realtor after seeing how they treat their clients. Many thumbs up for Dwelling Quest.
