Past Sales and Rentals


We first met Grace Ann when we had just moved to the US from the Czech Republic. It was a stressful time—we were renting a home and were not happy with many aspects of the situation.  Grace Ann worked with us to find both an alternative rental situation and a buy option and as it turns out, we fell in love with a home and purchased it.  This was our first US purchase and her knowledge of the process really made things run smoothly and without any issues.  Our situation changed earlier than expected when we took a position in Moscow which cut our time short in the US. She quickly listed and sold our home and worked hard to make this transition painless as well.  We have remained connected for the past 14 years and would happily work with her in the future for another purchase or investment.

We had the good fortune of meeting Grace Ann at a public open house when my husband and I were newly married and searching for our first home. Grace Ann and I clicked immediately, I loved that she thinks and acts like a business person - she wasn’t just helping us find our home, she was helping us find a great investment (something we appreciated when later selling in a down market coming out ahead). Grace Ann is committed, detail oriented and responsive. She treats the transaction as if it were her own, taking full responsibility for all of the information and follow up. We have worked with her on a few transactions now over the course 10 years and four children. Finally, when it was time to renovate instead of move, she was supportive and helpful with advice - the sign of the truest professional, always thinking about what is best for her clients. I recommend her with full comfort and confidence.

I first met Grace Ann 30 years ago when we both worked in financial services. So, I was well aware of her background when I asked her to help me with my search for a rental in NYC. On my own I could see that it was like searching for a “needle in a haystack”—even with the plethora of information that the internet provides.  Grace Ann quickly sorted through not only the numerous options but provided me with the information I needed to make an informed decision.  At first I had one particular neighborhood in mind as I had lived there many years ago. Coming back to the States after a long stint overseas I was unaware of the many changes that had taken place in the city—all for the good.  Grace Ann organized a walking tour of neighborhoods she thought might fit my lifestyle and needs and was able to point out buildings along the way—quoting information about the buildings, types of apartments, typical pricing—all out of her head! I was really impressed and most of all felt like I was in good hands for this important life decision. She also prepared a professional and detailed package of the properties and neighborhoods we explored—very helpful for reviewing post visit.  We are still working on final details but I am comfortable with the outcome as I know we have left no stone unturned. Grace Ann works with enthusiasm and compassion and is an excellent listener who guides clients in a direction that is a best fit.  She’s like no other broker I’ve ever met or worked with before and I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for someone detailed, creative, honest and most of all someone who quickly captures a client’s needs.
