Dina loves the daily challenge and excitement of her real estate work, and it shows not just in her effectiveness at matching buyers with great properties, but in the satisfied reactions and sincere thanks she continually receives from her clientele. "Working with buyers is like taking them on a treasure hunt. I enjoy helping people discover the various niches throughout the city, opening their eyes to new possibilities, and then narrowing their wish lists to find that unique gem they can call home."
An enthusiastic, energetic and extremely efficient professional, she breaks down the real estate process into easy, manageable steps for others, making it smooth and informative, yet fun and exciting. Dina is equally praised by sellers for her seasoned vast market knowledge, accurate pricing ability, and exceptional marketing and negotiation skills. This proud 25-year Manhattanite has lived all over the city, and so understands the diversities inherent in the market. Working alongside with her accomplished Douglas Elliman partner, Melanie Lazenby, Dina offers sellers the utmost in full-service real estate through every step of the transaction.
Today, at Douglas Elliman, Dina works one-on-one with buyers in finding their ideal home, and serves sellers in partnership with accomplished fellow agent, Melanie Lazenby. Together, the team with over twenty years of combined real estate sales experience provides exemplary full service to sellers, maximizing every sale with their impeccable marketing and negotiating skills. They have broken several real estate records together, including achieving the highest price per square foot ever in a West Village co-op and also selling the most expensive condominium ever in the history of Downtown Manhattan. Melanie and Dina have over $1.2 billion in sales and they have sold apartments in some of the most notable buildings in Manhattan such as The Time Warner Center; Superior Ink; Artisan Lofts; 21 Astor Place; The Greenwich; 260 Park Avenue South; 240 Park Avenue South; Trump Park Avenue; 25 West Houston; The Chatham; The Chelsea Mercantile; The Urban Glass House; The Brompton; and 160 Wooster to name a few - often achieving record prices per square foot. They have also represented entire building developments including 1055 Park Avenue, 137 East 13th Street, and 34 Greene Street. Their unique business model is built on the fact - that when people hire Dina and Melanie- they get Dina and Melanie exclusively. They do not have a large team, nor do they outsource showings, board packages, or marketing to assistants. They work with less buyers and sellers in an average year than other top real estate teams in order to be able to give each and every person they work with as much personalized service as possible - which has resulted in a solid track record of repeat business with many happy clients.
