Past Sales and Rentals


My wife and I began our search during late June, and eventually narrowed our search down to rentals in SoHo. We found a few apartments in our price range and reached out to Anne Flanagan. Anne got to work. She was calming. She was funny. She brightened the mood tremendously. After meeting her, my wife and I kept thinking, “Why couldn’t we have met her 5 months ago?” Anne is delightful. She was pleasant, had a lovely personality, was knowledgeable about the property and the area, and could answer all of our questions. Right after meeting her felt like you were out seeing apartments with a friend, or someone you’ve known your whole life. A few days later we were working through the contract process. After our 5-month quest to find our new home, the search finally came to a fabulous conclusion when Anne swooped in and saved the day. I run an operations company. I was blown away. She was highly streamlined in the way she worked. All emails, calls, and meetings were organized and focused. Zero time was wasted. She had all of the paperwork ready for us, and knew just how much to nudge to make sure thinks kept moving along at a quick pace. Momentum can be key in these kinds of situations, and she owned the task at hand. Anne coordinated our paperwork between her and a co- broker, along with the owner of the apartment (who lives in Louisiana) and the SoHo Mews management company. Our favorite part: We didn’t need to do anything after our paperwork was submitted. She took care of it all. A few days after submitting our paperwork, we got a call from Anne. “You’re approved.” We’ve been in the apartment for 2 weeks and I don’t think I’ve stopped smiling. We cannot thank her enough, and we’ll definitely be working with her again when it’s time to find our next home.

Anne Flanagan has been our real estate agent for an investment property in New York City’s Financial District since 2010. We began our relationship when we were faced with a tenant situation that needed very delicate care. My husband and I knew right away that Anne would be the agent for the job. During this time, not only did Anne provide all of the choices we had available to us but she went above and beyond to rectify the situation that another agent had gotten us into. She found us a professional, responsible and ethical tenant. Anne is an amazing judge of character. She also has an unbelievable talent for working with management companies to get tenants in the door as quickly as possible. Anne is diligent, persistent and honest. Any suggestions she has with rent prices, branding or market placement should be taken very seriously. She knows how to get a landlord what they need, when they need it, all while working with the market. Her personal experience as an owner is evident in her work and lends to a vast understanding of what a landlord, renter, buyer or seller needs to move forward with a successful sale or rental. Anne will be our Real Estate agent for years to come. We would highly recommend working with her!

Anne came to us through a recommendation of a family friend, and she did not disappoint. Anne was an amazing help throughout the entire process of purchasing a home. It was our first home purchase, and Anne helped us navigate the complex New York market with ease, and provided us with recommendations for a top-notch real estate attorney. During the process, my husband received another job offer, which he would only have been able to accept if we closed on our flat by a certain date. This is where Anne demonstrated her quality and unwavering dedication towards her clients. She put together a flawless application packet, which the management company was able to quickly review with ease. Anne went one step further by building a relationship with the management company, and was able to score us a board interview one month early. Thanks to Anne’s help, we were able to get our dream home and dream job in the same week. Thank you, Anne!

I recently sold my apartment and wanted to write you to state that I had a great experience working with Anne Flanagan. I need to highlight how great Anne was, getting me three offers in this market where many sellers would hope for just one offer. Working with her was always a pleasure: she was always diligent, available, thoughtful and just one of the hardest working agents I’ve encountered. Just had to write you about the great experience I had working with Anne.
