“I like how Warburg Realty affords my clients a luxury experience in a boutique environment.”

Mihal began her real estate career with a company that purchases and repositions distressed hotels. For several years, she travelled around the country gaining insights on the strengths and weaknesses of various national markets in hotels and hotel development. With a background deeply rooted in the belief that real estate is an asset class and the seed to generational wealth creation, she has used her past experience to help both commercial and residential real estate clients.

On the one hand, she has cultivated a unique practice where commercial and residential real estate interests meet. She helps investors evaluate upcoming projects and works with them to maximize their rental profits or otherwise reposition their properties for development, sale, or conversion.

On the other hand, Mihal works with buyers and sellers in the residential real estate market. She believes in combining traditional technology with the latest marketing tools (e.g. Artificial Intelligence) to help her sellers achieve the maximum value of their home in the shortest timeframe. And by listening closely to her buyers’ needs, she effectively matches them to their new home and has a 100% buyer approval rate in New York City’s challenging co-op market.

Institutions including Fortune 500 companies and Ivy League Schools have invited Mihal to speak to their colleagues and clients on real estate matters. She moderates panels and hosts seminars to educate her clients and partners on real estate trends. Moreover, national news media and industry papers from US News & World Reports to The Real Deal quote Mihal as an expert in her field on both commercial and residential real estate topics.

Mihal first moved to Manhattan to attend Columbia University where she hosted a weekly radio talk show, featuring artists. While completing her studies, she sought, located, and booked half-hour interviews with 200 high-profile personalities including Michael Caine, Colin Firth, Norman Jewison, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Lucy Liu, Viggo Mortensen, Ridley Scott, and Franco Zeffirelli.

Testimonial from L. Sim

Mihal was so wonderful to work with. She is professional, polite and respectful but also super friendly and fun to hang out with. She is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate business and had excellent contacts for all aspects of the sale. Mihal did all the hard work once I found the place I liked and I am forever grateful for that! Thank you for such a positive experience!

Testimonial from C. Bianco

I have a horse property in Long Island that I needed help selling. Mihal researched the market and found me a realtor that was an expert in selling such properties. Whether you have a regular property to sell or something that is part of a niche market, Mihal can help you!

Testimonial from Y. Chu

Amazing to work with! Very detail-oriented and helpful with all our first time owner questions. Also gave great referrals and allowed for us to have a quick close.

Testimonial from F. Ingriselli

Mihal found the exact condo we were looking for. She was patient, professional, and able to get us a very significant discount that completely covered our renovation! And we closed within in a little over 30 days. Fantastic!

Testimonial from S. Desberg

Mihal was fantastic to work with. She was very responsive, flexible with scheduling appointments and very helpful throughout.

Testimonial from Y. Gu

Mihal helped us to find a very nice apartment on the Upper East Side. It’s our first time purchasing a home, so my wife and I were nervous in the beginning, but Mihal helped throughout the whole process. We are very happy with the apartment and we recommend her very strongly to everyone!

Testimonial from M. Ye

“I regretted that I did not retain you as my broker! It was pretty painful if you had to work with someone you could not get along. I felt my broker did not represent me for the best interest of me instead of buyer. Thanks God it is almost finish!  I will recommend you whenever there is a possibility from my friends.”

Testimonial from C. Rosen

Mihal helped my boyfriend and I purchase our first home in NYC. She was so helpful, attentive and knowledgeable about NYC and coops. She always went above and beyond for us– she was always on call and responsive no matter how late at night or even if she was on vacation. She was extremely helpful, especially as a first time buyer, and we could not have done this without her. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell, especially a first time buyer! We could not have done this without her!

Testimonial from Z. Ye

After a few adventures and we finally did it. Hoo…ray! I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for all your help and assistance in our home purchasing journey. You made the process much easier and cut down a lot of our tasks and stresses. Definitely will both use you more here and there down the road.  Best wishes and all the success for you.

Testimonial from D. Malkin

Mihal was absolutely instrumental in helping guide me and my spouse through the difficult and at times frustrating process of buying a commercial property in Manhattan. She was attentive to our concerns and didn’t shy away from offering her opinion on various matters and crucial details which we may have missed if she didn’t point it out to us. She was always prompt and available by phone, SMS or email – and provided additional contacts and encouragement to keep the process moving forward. The closing doesn’t happen without her. I recommend Mihal without reservations!
