I run a consumer products company selling products in 14 countries, and travel extensively so needed someone who would work with me on a flexible basis in finding, for me, the perfect apartment in Manhattan. Judy worked with me over a 3 year period of time to help me find the perfect place. She is highly diligent and detailed with excellent judgment and a calm, stable personality, which is a real asset in New York real estate. I recommend her highly without reservation.
My husband and I had the very fortunate experience of working with Judy Kloner both in the sale of one apartment and the purchase of another apartment. In both cases, Judy was a consummate professional who paid very close attention to all the details to ensure that every aspect of both transactions were completed timely and accurately. Judy turned what could have been a long and painful process into a smooth, stress-free and thoroughly seamless experience for both of us. We highly recommend Judy for the sale and/or purchase of any property.
As an out-of-town buyer in the market for a Manhattan real estate purchase, we needed a reliable, reputable broker familiar with the nuances of the purchasing property in the city. Judy Kloner came highly recommended to us from a friend who also lives in Houston and bought a property in Manhattan. From our first telephone conversation with Judy, to reviewing properties via email, she was very responsive to our questions. She was a trusted advisor to us regarding location, building amenities and condition of the apartments we reviewed on-line. Before our purchase while looking at properties in person, she demonstrated knowledge and integrity. During the sale, as she negotiated tirelessly on our behalf, she always kept us up-to-date on the latest progress and kept our interests first. From providing guidance regarding the co-op interview to the many details that had to be attended to when purchasing a furnished co-op, she remained our ongoing resource. Judy stayed engaged and connected throughout the entire process providing us with peace of mind and saving us countless trips back to New York. She went above and beyond to meet inspectors, coordinate with the co-op management and did the final walk thru on our behalf. She provided an exceptional level and scope of service and exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Judy Kloner for your real estate needs.
As the attorney for the seller, I am writing you this letter to express my thanks for your total professionalism in this transaction (and the ones preceding it).
I have been practicing law for over 45 years and it is a rare occasion that I appreciate the efforts of the brokers involved. Usually I am, like most lawyers, annoyed that the brokers are messing up the deal or making statements which are not authorized. You have never done anything other than be a voice of reason; always willing to assist and made the transaction enjoyable. Your assistance was most valuable and the whole transaction not only a success but also smooth and friction free. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
After striking out on my own into the NYC real estate market, I was quickly overwhelmed. A friend who had worked with Judy recommended that I contact her. I wanted to work with someone who would be quick but also thoughtful and thorough; someone who understood and respected my priorities and needs; someone who could offer advice but let me maintain control of the process to the extent that I wanted to. Judy exceeded all of my expectations. She quickly understood my priorities and preferences and sent me a manageable number of listings to start with. As I narrowed down my options, Judy was able to hone in on just what I was looking for. She was unbelievably timely and responsive to my questions and offered a wealth of knowledge and (much needed!) advice. She arranged showings to fit my availabilities and was a supportive, knowledgeable, and adept guide. Once I found the home of my dreams, Judy walked me step-by-step through the offer process and the labyrinth of the board package preparation, providing guidelines and sample materials and taking the flurry of disorganized papers I submitted to her piece-by-piece and organizing them into a neat and professional dossier. At my request, she was able to offer recommendations for lenders, attorneys, home insurance, and even preschools. At the same time, I always felt free to proceed in whatever way I felt comfortable, even if I chose not to pursue a particular recommendation. She answered countless emails from me and was always available for whatever was needed. Not only did I make it through this complicated process with speed and ease, but I did so with the best possible outcome and my lovely new home. Thank you, Judy!
I am writing to recommend Judy Kloner as a broker. For the last seven months she has worked tirelessly to sell my NYC apartment. I’ve known Judy since 1990 when we lived in a house of 9 women in college. The traits that I’ve always known her to have are perfect for her position now as a real estate broker.
Judy doesn’t get upset. During the time that she was selling the apartment we had tenants who are nursing students. They worked nights and made it difficult to schedule viewings and open houses. Judy just worked around their schedules. I can’t imagine how different that must have been than working with an owner who will do anything to show their apartment. When first one and then a second deal fell through I felt so bad for all the work she had invested. She said, “It goes with the territory. Just part of the job.”
Judy takes care of matters immediately and smoothly. The minute something came up she was on the phone getting the answers.
My lawyer, who is also my dad, was thoroughly impressed with Judy. He couldn’t stop talking about how good a job she does. This is a man who, when it comes to law, is persnickety. When we bought this apartment he scared both brokers.
Judy knows the field and the current market. She knew what the apartment was worth and what it would go for. Her advice helped us know when to accept an offer and when to ask for more.
Judy is relaxed and unassuming. If you want to buy or sell property with as little stress as possible, Judy is the one.
Congratulations! I am so glad this referral worked out and I know Michaela loved working with you. You are a priceless gem in this real estate jungle! Again, congratulations!
