“Shaida helped me find my first apartment in NYC, which I absolutely love! She was beyond amazing, unlike any other realtor. She genuinely cared about my needs and about how I was feeling as we went from place to place. Shaida listened and made me feel comfortable with my budget. She also worked against the clock during the Thanksgiving holiday. She has made this milestone move an incredibly pleasant one, and I appreciate her greatly for it!”- Maya H.

“Lauren and I want to tell you what a superb agent Shaida is. She made apartment renting easy and pleasant in every way. She remained calm and cordial while dealing with the other agent who was not so. Shaida patiently showed us several places and answered our many (repeated:) questions. She is sincere, informed and trustworthy. She was very conscientious and always put our interests first, making sure we did not leave ourselves vulnerable in any way. She is a gem of a realtor!” – Lauren & Stacey R.
