Veteran real estate specialist Sylvia Habib truly knows the market inside and out. Her expert interpersonal, communication and negotiation skills have fueled both her success and fine reputation as an effective, results-driven professional over a 20-year career.
An accomplished former commercial real estate agent with expertise in financing, leasing, management, construction and development, Sylvia turned her emphasis to the residential world and has built a personal portfolio of properties across New England. With Manhattan her first love, she has excelled in helping clients with the sale or purchase of co-ops and condos throughout the city. She also provides relocation services for those moving domestically or abroad.
Sylvia, who earned her B.A. in Economics and Accounting from New York University and Juris Doctor from Hofstra University, had a private general law practice prior to entering real estate. Her uncanny knowledge of the finances, legalities and procedures inherent in the transaction process combine with her keen listening ability and genuine concern for clients' needs to make the real estate experience with her rewarding as well as enjoyable. “I'll handle your sale or purchase, from beginning to end, with enthusiasm, expertise, thoroughness, and a smile,” promises Sylvia.
This longtime Upper West Side resident enjoys spending down time in Greenwich, CT and Cape Cod, MA. Swimming, travel, family vacations with her two wonderful daughters, and physical activity balance her work life. Fluent in Spanish, Sylvia loves the diversity of people she meets each day, just as she does where she lives “and what I do for a living!”
