Testimonial from K. Wood
Lisa Larson helped me to buy a NYC apartment from halfway around the world.  And during the whole process, from the initial searches to closing and beyond, Lisa proved herself an exceptional real estate agent with all the necessary professional skills as well as immense energy and warmth. Lisa demonstrated excellent communications skills right from her first email.  She listened carefully to my requirements and wishes, never once trying to second-guess me or talk me into something which wasn’t right, and offered advice where needed and guided me through the NYC processes.  My questions were answered quickly and comprehensively.  Lisa was unfailingly patient, friendly and good-humoured. My new building was under construction and I couldn’t visit the US, yet Lisa arranged for site visits, sent photos and videos, and gathered all the information I needed to make a confident purchase.  During purchase and closing Lisa represented my interests with vigor and attention to detail.  Lisa even attended closing inspections on my behalf, and drew on the resources of Warburg Realty on the few occasions when she was not personally available. Even beyond closing Lisa has continued to advise and assist with everything from paperwork to furniture deliveries, introductions to the building maintenance company and staff, to information about New York.  I’m sitting in my beautiful apartment, looking at the NYC skyline, and it’s all thanks to Lisa!

Testimonial from Pablo Benavides

I had the honor of meeting Lisa in the midst of a long search for apartments in New York. From the moment we met, she immediately knew what I wanted and needed in a home (sometimes before I even knew it myself). She researched several neighborhoods which she believed would best fit my lifestyle and tastes. She patiently toured the city with me, neighborhood by neighborhood and apartment by apartment. When we zoned in on my dream home, she skillfully and artfully negotiated the best deal for me flawlessly.  Somehow, she was able to make the entire process including the board package feel so easy, mostly because she was on top of every detail at every second of the day and by doing so shielded me from the many complicated twists and turns along the way.  Most important, Lisa made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Yes, she is intelligent and has wonderful instincts about the market, but best of all, I found myself just enjoying her company. She has a terrific sense of humor and a generous soul that is unmatched in this industry. I could not imagine going through an apartment search in this city without Lisa by my side.

Testimonial from Renee Anderson

Lisa’s knowledge of the Manhattan real estate market and its neighborhoods was invaluable. Not only did she make the process more efficient by tailoring the search to our very specific needs, but she also provided incredible insight and advice. Lisa is incredibly proactive throughout the buying process. She effectively prepared us for every step along the way and provided valuable guidance. We were very grateful to have such a strong advocate and advisor. Lisa was referred to us by a friend, and we will continue to refer her to ours.

Testimonial from Kathleen Dur

I hired Lisa to help me buy an apartment in New York City, as I was relocating from Washington DC, where I had just sold my townhouse. As most people I am sure talk about her expertise in helping find the perfect apartment, I would like to comment on how well she helped me navigate the intricacies of the NYC co-op market from an “outsider’s” perspective.  I was a novice regarding the “ins” and “outs” of various co-op regulations regarding updating the apartment I was contemplating purchasing.  Lisa, on her own initiative, met with the Super at the apartment I had tentatively decided on. She was able discuss in detail any regulations regarding installing a washer/dryer and through the exterior wall air conditioning/heating system in a prewar building. Knowing in advance that these were considered “quality of life” issues and would not involve going through a board process sealed the deal for me. Her personal attention to every detail was beyond extraordinary.

Testimonial from Ed DiLuigi

I have known Lisa for approximately five years, during which time I had a need for her advice, knowledge, and time on several occasions for either a rental listing, a sales listing or a market question. I was always fully satisfied. Lisa’s character is always of honesty and integrity, always keeping the best interest of her client in mind. Not only is she fully committed her client, she also has the full support of the firm she represents. Lisa’s knowledge of the real estate market is outstanding and although my personality typically challenges advice, Lisa has the ability through her verbal skills and market awareness to overcome contrarian views and develop a plan that encourages partnership with her client to achieve the goal at hand. Lisa’s work ethic deserves recognition; her high energy is virtually unlimited. No matter what day, hour or pressing personal issues, Lisa is 100% committed and available to her client. Lisa kept me informed daily or even hourly, whenever the circumstances required. I am a demanding client but never had to ask for anything twice, because she often pre-empted any need or request from me. Many times I asked her: “Are you reading my mind?” I have recommended and will continue to recommend Lisa to anyone looking for the best in real estate service.

Testimonial from Elizabeth Silkes

Lisa Larson has the perfect combination of professional expertise and personal warmth that transforms what is typically one of life’s most stressful experiences (selling or buying a home) into an extraordinarily pleasant and profitable one. My experience selling my home with Lisa was so completely different from the impersonal and ineffective experience I had with every other realtor prior to meeting Lisa. Not only was she consistently responsive to all my questions and concerns (always getting back to my calls or emails within minutes, no matter where she was), she very quickly developed and implemented a marketing plan that led to the sale of our home on the first day we showed it for an all cash offer above asking price with multiple bidders. As important as the ease with which I was able to work with Lisa is the fact that Lisa showed herself to have a level of professional integrity and personal commitment to my having a positive experience that I have never found in anyone else. I had—and continue to have—complete confidence in and total comfort with Lisa, which is not something one is often fortunate enough to find. Thanks to Lisa’s expertise, thoughtfulness and effectiveness, I actually look forward to my next move!

Testimonial from Richard Marshall

I hired Lisa after a competitive process to help me sell my coop that had languished on the market for nearly a year. She did an outstanding job and did so with great efficiency and professionalism. She was thorough in her preparation, smart and targeted in her marketing campaign, and excellent at execution and follow up. Throughout, her instincts and advice were helpful and additive and the feedback and updates were timely and substantive. One of the best professionals I’ve ever worked with in Real Estate. No reservations or hesitation in offering the strongest recommendation.

Testimonial from Michelle Levine

We had been looking for an apartment for over a year before we were referred to Lisa. Within a few weeks of working with Lisa, she found us the perfect apartment. She not only zeroed in on exactly what we were looking for, but she got us in before the open house and navigated our bidding flawlessly. We also worked with her to sell our apartment, which she handled expertly. She makes the entire process a breeze and is such a pleasure to be around. Her natural intuition about people, coupled with her passion for NYC real estate, is a rare find.

Testimonial from Kathleen Bardolf

Lisa’s sales numbers and numerous awards speak for her success as a realtor. What I would like to address is the person behind all those awards. Lisa is a wonderful person and I cannot sing her praises enough. Lisa worked with my husband and I for over a year to find our Carnegie Hill two bedroom co-op. With the current tight real estate market and lack of inventory there were many instances we became discouraged with our search. During this time Lisa was a constant cheerleader, always keeping us informed of market conditions and new listings. Even though my husband and I each owned our own condos before we were married, the uncharted world of co-ops and board packages was easily navigated by Lisa’s constant assistance. Lisa is knowledgeable, always accessible, and was very understanding that our home search only encompassed a few specific blocks. I have no reservations in recommending Lisa to family and friends alike. If we ever move again, Lisa will be the first phone call we place.

Testimonial from Cem Gunusen

Lisa is an exceptional real estate professional who we had the privilege of working with during the sale of our condo. Lisa was direct, professional, communicated well, and her recommendations were based on concrete data and knowledge of the market and our building. Her recommendations on pricing as well as when and how to market the unit enabled us to sell our apartment quickly, while others in the same line had been on the market for longer. Also, Lisa’s resourcefulness in preparation of listing our unit, especially handling the staging of the apartment, also made the selling process easier for us, which was much appreciated. Whether you are looking to buy or sell, I would highly recommend Lisa.
