"Intelligence. Skill. Humor."
These best describe Armanda's approach to real estate - and to life. Her background gives her a unique perspective in New York City real estate: she grew up in a United Nations family, relocating around the world with her father's assignments. Finding a home is her life-experience, and thus she is especially sensitive to the needs and emotions of people in transition, whether buying or selling a home.
Based at Elliman's West Village office at 137 Waverly Place, Squad, as she is often called, has been a top producer in New York City for 19 years, working in all Manhattan neighborhoods. Previously in Elliman's Tribeca office, she was one of the top two agents there since 2010. She is an Associate Broker at Douglas Elliman, a global real estate firm providing New York City clients with local, national, and international exposure. She is experienced in the gamut of manners of how real estate is best provided to clients. She is also a REBNY certified New York Real Estate Specialist (www.nyrs.net).
Squad represents sellers and buyers in all parts of the city. As a long-time dog-owning -- and alternate-side-of-the-street-parking -- resident of the West Village, she knows that neighborhood intimately, and she - along with her three-legged, smiling Australian Cattle Dog, "Friday," - are extremely well-known to its residents, business-owners, and shopkeepers (www.westvillagespecialist.com). In fact, Squad meets many current and future clients thanks to Friday's charm and magnetism! Additionally, she is a shareholder and former board member at 350 Bleecker Street, and has sold 65 apartments there in the last sixteen years (www.350bleeckerspecialist.com), as well as numerous rentals.
At Elliman, Squad partners on an ad hoc basis with other top agents. She is a frequent lecturer at Esther Muller's Real Estate Academy for Continuing Education "Tips from the Tops" series, and an advisor for the Real Estate Certificate program at Truro College in downtown Manhattan. She has written "Buying Made Painless," a synopsis of the buying process for NYC buyers.
Armanda has an impeccable reputation not only among her clients, but also with other real estate brokers, as a deal-maker and as someone who is easy, pleasant -- and even fun - to work with. She is fluent in English, French, Italian, and Spanish.
Before real estate, Armanda spent almost 20 years in corporate America. She provides practical and easy solutions to questions about budget, availability, location, property standards, and timing.
Squad is devoted to her Australian Cattle Dogs Friday and Astro, and passionate about dog rescue, cattledog rescue in particular (www.cattledog.com). While she used to be an avid motorcyclist, touring and writing for RoadRUNNER Magazine on a regular basis, she's traded in her Ninja for a 1971 FIAT 500L, the iconic Italian car of the post-war era. She often drives clients to appointments, making the hunting process a great deal of fun.
Armanda will be delighted to meet with you at your convenience, discuss your needs and goals, and determine together with you how best to achieve them. Please call or email anytime.
