I derive a great deal of satisfaction in being with my clients every step of the way from the first meeting to the closing table.”

"I have completed three real estate transactions with Abbe. When I first came to New York in 1992, she helped me rent a studio apartment on the Upper West Side. I was new to the city and Abbe made me feel right at home. She showed me the neighborhood and found a design student who helped me set up my place while I was training for my new position. Now, 12 years and two apartments later, I consider her a friend and refer her to anyone I know contemplating a move."
