Ildiko Gugan came to Douglas Elliman from another leading Manhattan brokerage firm where she was a top award winner at the company, and a top sales agent in the West Village office. Her success is the result of her tireless work ethic and consistency in going the extra mile for her clients to fulfill their unique real estate needs.
As a licensed attorney in California, Ildiko takes a protective and thorough approach when guiding clients through the real estate process. She attempts to educate well before someone enters the market, and strives to bridge the discrepancy between perception and in-the-field realities to ensure realistic expectations and sound decisions, whether someone is searching for a home or an investment property.
Specializing in sales throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn at all price points, Ildiko believes that in NYC, viewing or showing apartments is just the beginning. "Purchasing or selling can be an involved undertaking with potential curve balls and bumps along the way. As the client’s liaison, I am here to inform, support, and make sure your experience is as smooth and satisfying as possible – from the initial search to closing."
A NYC resident for over a decade, Ildiko enjoyed life in vibrant Williamsburg, Brooklyn for eight years and has been living in Manhattan ever since. Originally from Southern California, she earned her undergraduate degree from UC Santa Barbara and spent a year abroad in England at the University of York. Ildiko is also a graduate of the University of San Diego School of Law. An agent since mid-2009, she entered the real estate profession already familiar with the world of representation having worked at two top literary and talent agencies in Los Angeles (ICM and William Morris Agency). Screenwriting is one of her creative interests outside of the work arena.
