Rebecca Edwardson has ranked amongst the top selling agents in a tough and competitive high-end real estate market since 2006. Rebecca’s success has been profiled extensively in leading news and trade publications both locally in New York and throughout the world.

Rebecca has helped clients buy and sell properties in every nook and corner of Manhattan, including brokering deals for the city’s most highly valued co-ops, condos, townhouses, penthouses and pieds-à-terre. Two traits distinguish Rebecca’s professional success. First, as a long-time resident of the city, she is intimately familiar with Manhattan’s many unique neighborhoods and their respective market values. She is also a deeply data-oriented, knowledge-based broker, leaning heavily on research and market info. As a result, she delivers timely, accurate information to help clients make well-informed decisions.

Recent clients had this to say about Rebecca:

“She is a pleasure to deal with, because she really is a pro and prepared.”

“For all of her professionalism, taste, tact and follow-through we are indebted and recommend her without reservation.”

“If you are looking for the consummate professional who will patiently walk you through the hard journey of finding the perfect NY home, Rebecca is your best choice.”

Rebecca is an art history graduate of Columbia University. She also had a successful 15-year career as an Elite international model, during which she extensively traveled the world. She serves as the board Chair of New York Sunworks, a non-profit organization that builds greenhouses on the rooftops of public and private schools in order to implement comprehensive science education with a strong focus on environmental studies.

Rebecca Edwardson has represented me in the purchase of 2 apartments here in Manhattan. Her knowledge of the market, her value assessments and her strategy for negotiation are always fair and forward thinking. The directness and clarity of her advice has been invaluable in finding the best possible scenario to meet my needs both times. I trust her not only to serve my best interest but I can trust that she will do it with the utmost integrity and steadfastness. I absolutely recommend you utilize Rebecca’s expertise for a completely seamless, competent and pleasurable real estate experience.

I am so in love with my home, I can’t thank Rebecca enough for helping me find the perfect place. Rebecca was incredibly reliable, thoughtful and patient during this process. I was very appreciative how she took the time to get to know me and in return found a home that was a perfect fit for me. Thanks again Rebecca!

Testimonial from Fabiola Lwow

As a foreigner living in New York I was very concerned about the appropriate steps I needed to follow in order to by an apartment in the city until I started to work with Rebecca Edwardson. She not only assisted me with my search but she also guided me throughout the entire process.

On top of that, she understood from the start my requirements, needs and taste and did an exceptional job selecting the properties that met my requirements.

I just can’t recommend her enough.

Testimonial from Shane Tedjarati

I always dreamed of buying a great apartment in NYC and Rebecca Edwardson of Warburg Realty finally helped me realize that dream.  Rebecca was the utmost professional, a great listener and understood what I wanted and needed.  Most importantly she was patient and responsive despite the fact that due to market conditions I had to pause my search for more than 2 years.  She never made me feel rushed or cornered and unlike the stories I had heard of Real Estate agents in NYC, she never lost patience or push me.  Rebecca was always understanding and did not give up until we finally found not one, but two terrific adjoining apartments which, when combined, surpass my expectation for best value and best fit anyone can expect.  If you are looking for the consummate professional who will patiently walk you through the hard journey of finding the perfect NY home, Rebecca is your best choice.

Testimonial from Steve Savage

Buying real estate in the New York City takes a daunting dose of courage. From filtering through all the possibilities to showing up for endless open houses. From crazy owners with unrealistic expectations to taxis and uncooperative weather– and, then there are the coop boards that make the Spanish Inquisition seem like a walk in Central Park. Rebecca Edwardson of Warburg made our purchase experience survivable and successful. Together as our partner she got to know what we were looking for winnowing down long lists of prospects to potential homes. Rebecca was with us from the very beginning of the process taking us through to the finish line. For all of her professionalism, taste, tact and follow-through we are indebted and recommend her without reservation.

Testimonial from Raj Alva

We have worked with Rebecca several times over the years and I have found her to be the most professional broker I have ever dealt with.  That includes brokers in New York City, the Hampton’s and Palm Beach where we have homes.  Most brokers seem to just show properties and sometimes give opinions without a lot of facts backing them up.  Rebecca is proactive, digs deep into the information to understand the areas and all the possible comps for the properties she’s showing and as a result, helps the buyer come to an educated decision on their purchase.  She is the consummate professional.  I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Testimonial from Justin Galletti

In the fall of 2010 my father and I began looking for an apartment in Manhattan, which to us (an Italian citizen and a Connecticut native, respectively) was an overwhelming prospect.  Fortunately, a realtor in Connecticut recommended us to Rebecca Edwardson.

From the start, Rebecca was very enthusiastic, energetic, and eager to help us find an apartment.

We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have found someone so committed to finding the apartment that fit our wants and budget.  What impressed us most about Rebecca was her knowledge about the many areas of Manhattan and the Manhattan real estate market.  Also, important to us was the fact that she always provided us with individual personal attention and treated us as though we were her most important clients.

She provided further evidence of her capabilities throughout the closing process, which was arduous to say the least.  She worked diligently with the selleräó»s realtor to ensure the transaction took place and provided us with guidance throughout the board approval process and the purchase.  She kept us up-to-date on where we were in the process, provided insight into the home buying process, and spent many hours following up on questions or concerns we had. She was always only an email or phone call away and was prompt in returning calls or emails.

Testimonial from Per Josefsson

We bought an apartment at Upper East Side Fifth Avenue in New York in beginning of 2009. Rebecca Edwardson was our broker at Warburg Realty. She did an excellent job for us with accurate and timely information. Her advice was always to the point and very sharp. We were totally ignorant about the New York real estate market at that time, but Rebecca gave us the confidence we needed.  We can strongly recommend her.
