“Never having any luck with brokers before – Helen-Lee certainly changed my mind! I was so impressed with her ability to negotiate the perfect deal for me with the seller of the apartment I purchased. After we closed, I referred one of my best work friends to her as he was also having difficulty with the broker he was using. Helen-Lee found him exactly what he was looking for and now he is my neighbor – living down the block from me in Chelsea!”

“When I needed to quickly relocate from San Diego, California to Manhattan– Helen-Lee was invaluable finding my wife, daughter and I the perfect rental in Battery Park City. We rented for six months while looking for our dream – a Brooklyn townhouse to purchase. Helen-Lee worked diligently to educate us on the market and potential neighborhoods and showed us a variety of great options for us. After a few months, we were confident we had zeroed in on exactly what we were looking for, a four-story, 2400 square foot townhouse in Park Slope. It filled all our requirements: it had original detail, was close to public transportation for my wife - a doctor, who often needs to get into the City quickly. In addition, it had wonderful outdoor space and a separate entrance for my in-laws.”

When I signed Helen-Lee Stevens on as the exclusive broker to sell my Co-op at 65 Central Park West – she exceeded all my expectations. Initially, she took the correct steps in getting my classic 5 apartment ready for showings and potential buyers. She handled all details from getting it painted, windows cleaned, floors polished to reconfiguring the furniture to maximize space and Central Park views. When complete – it was so transformed we joked maybe I shouldn’t sell it. We strategized together to price it correctly but most memorable was how she found the perfect buyer! At one of the Open Houses – she met a doctor who liked the apt. but was going to pass as he was only interested in condos where he wouldn’t have to deal with the aggravation of passing a co-op’s board approval process. Helen-Lee worked with the potential buyer, his attorney and broker to get him comfortable with the process and its requirements. He passed the board easily and this fall she will be helping me again - to find a new apartment.

Helen-Lee Stevens is an incredible Sales Agent. She was able to handle all issues that arose with my cond-op when I was over 1500 miles away. Consistently upbeat, realistic, willing to go that extra mile and always thinking of my interests, I was assured that selling my apartment was a top priority for her and she would do whatever necessary to get me the best price for it. She more than kept her word! Helen-Lee initially discovered there was a problem that the banks were having lending in my building - obviously, an extremely important component for buyer’s to get financing! Helen-Lee got it rectified as quickly as possible and worked with two lenders to satisfy their issues so they we were able to lend there immediately. When we found our buyer - she held both of our hands and made sure our needs were met. The buyer had a concern with a noise issue - which Helen-Lee solved working with the managing agent and building super to rectify. She was on top of every issue making sure everyone was satisfied and in the loop so the deal could progress to a successful closing...

I was lucky to find a sales agent like Helen-Lee. She is highly knowledgeable and has a reserve of patience. After looking at many apartments, we found the ideal apartment – a sponsor unit for a good price that she negotiated many extras for me including a new refrigerator and washer/dryer. Helen-Lee has a fabulous personality and was fun to work with. I have already referred her to several of my friends and co-workers.
