Svetlana Choi
Real Estate Professional
Licensed Assoc. Real Estate Broker
With nearly two decades of accomplishment in real estate, Svetlana continues to enjoy helping clients buy and sell properties in Manhattan. She is sensitive to the specific needs of buyers and sellers alike, and focuses her considerable expertise and knowledge of the market upon achieving the best possible outcome.

Svetlana listens carefully to assess her customers' needs, establishes a tailored business plan, and then skillfully manages the process from offer and contract to closing. She is especially skilled at guiding buyers and sellers through the often-daunting, always unpredictable board process. She also has a carefully assembled list of professionals from attorneys and mortgage brokers to movers and contractors, who can help manage an often-stressful process. In the end, Svetlana is only truly satisfied when the client has either found the ideal home or realized the optimum price for their property.

She is curious and truly enjoys meeting people from all parts of the world who want to call New York City home. Fluent in Croatian and Serbian, she also has a working knowledge of French, German, and some Italian. Passionate about the arts, she has called the Upper West Side home for over thirty years.
