Shirin was very friendly, professional, and attentive.

Victoire Cleren October 24, 2017

She helped us a lot, she is very nice and very helpful. She gets to know her clients very quickly and understands exactly they want. We had a very nice experience with Shirin. Thank you

Casey Owens November 19, 2020

Shirin was absolutely wonderful to work with. She worked tirelessly to find my fiancé and I great listings. She was very diligent about following up on paperwork before we went to each apartment and helped to make sure we were safe as we looked at listings during the pandemic. She ultimately helped us find our apartment and helped us through the contract negotiations and closing process. She was amazing, kind and hardworking. We were so lucky to work with her, and we would definitely recommend!

Veronica Garzon November 21, 2020

Shirin was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was very helpful, resourceful and always readily available for any questions - from the start of the apartment hunting process all the way through to closing. She was also very thoughtful, attentive, and diligent in her work. Shirin made the whole process seamless for me as a buyer. I would highly recommend her to any individual looking for a new home!

Hannah Kneuer November 05, 2018

Shirin was so lovely and SO helpful. She was incredibly responsive and quick to reply anytime I had any questions or concerns. She helped my roommate and I find our dream apartment and also made herself available anytime we needed to show our spare bedroom to a prospective roommate. Highly recommend!

Although I have not been a client of Shirin Kumaana-Wadia, I would not hesitate to recommend clients to her. Shirin definitely has a feeling and flair for real estate. She is knowledgeable about the neighborhood and much of the City in general. Her expertise in architecture and interior design are an absolute plus in presenting and describing a property. As important, she is an ethical, smart, personable woman. As good a salesperson as she can be, her sense of ethics is always present. If you are her client, I believe that you will be most satisfied.

Tamar Koffman December 05, 2018

Sarah was very helpful throughout the process of finding our apartment, from the beginning of our search to signing the lease. She was very responsive and patient, running across the city and showing us a large number of apartments in a very short period of time. Sarah was also very attentive to our needs and helped us find our desired apartment in just 2 days! She made the apartment search a pleasant experience and we enjoyed working with her. -tamar & guy

Thanks to Shirin, my roommates and I were able to find a perfect spot in Manhattan for an incredible price. Throughout our search, Shirin remained extremely professional and she very clearly understood our needs even before meeting us. I especially appreciate that she never pressured us or hounded us to get an answer about our decision. She checked-in and asked if there was anything she could do to help us make a decision. Shirin was able to show us beautiful spaces at affordable prices, proving to us that our budget need not relegate us to a shoddy apartment.

Peter Chang October 04, 2021

I enjoyed working with her and we were able to find a suitable place in New York. She is proactive and eager to get the job done. I would recommend her to other friends!

Christina Chamberlain May 29, 2021

As we embarked on our first home purchase, we had no idea where to start. Once we started working with Shirin, we knew we were in good hands. From day one, Shirin was generous with her time, her knowledge, and her company! She was so patient with us and never once questioned setting up tons of appointments for us as we explored basically every neighborhood in the city and Brooklyn. We never felt rushed or pressured but when she knew we liked something, she encouraged us to move forward. And we did! Shirin negotiated aggressively on our behalf and she was still with us every step of the way until we closed. If you are looking for a realtor who makes you feel like you are their only client (even though they have plenty of others), Shirin is your person. The absolute best!!

Mike has been super helpful during our move-in last year. He isn't just another NYC real estate agent, he really tries to listen to owners, renters, and everyone else. I would totally work with him again, and I totally recommend working with him!

Nicole Delnegro January 30, 2019

Britt was great to work with. This was my first time looking at apartments in NYC and out of all the agents we spoke with she was the only one who seemed to really pay attention to what we were looking for. Ended up finding us a great spot on the upper west and also helped us negotiate our rent!

Charles Huang January 30, 2019

Great and very helpful, throughout entire process.

Nice Tarce David January 31, 2019

Britt was our broker mid last year. She was always available to quickly respond to questions. Britt is very professional, enthusiastic and efficient.

Andrew Gwyther February 05, 2019

Absolutely stellar rep. Professional, approachable and empathetic. More people should be like Britt. We will look to work with her again in the future. I will certainly recommend to friends and colleagues.

Jeff Cleveland February 07, 2019

Britt was knowledgeable, friendly, and incredibly helpful. We worked with numerous brokers before finding her and she was the one that took the most time, care, and attention to ensure that the process was smooth. She is fantastic. If and when we move again, Britt will be the first person we contact!

Elyssa J July 01, 2017

Shirin went above and beyond to make sure we found a place that suited our wants and needs. She even helped me measure and draw out a quick floorplan of the apartment after I signed the lease. I highly recommend her. :)

Lifi Spurge April 10, 2018

Shirin is super nice, professional, and helpful. She helped me find a suitable home that met my requirements. She went well above what you would expect and was patient, showing me numerous options before i selected the right one.

Gianluca Balestra July 16, 2021

It was a pleasure to work with Shirin. She was always very honest and patient with me as I was trying to find a home that was a perfect fit. Navigating the NYC real estate market is quite hectic, especially as a first time buyer. Shirin thoroughly equipped me with all the information and advice I needed to make a great decision!

Sabrina Kotas July 18, 2021

Shirin is amazing. She helped us find the perfect apartment for our growing family. She negotiated the price for us and advised us on how to make our offer. She connected us to great advisors (lawyers, bank, inspection etc.). She made this complex process very easy for us. She was also very responsive no matter the day or the hour. I would recommend her to all my contacts without any hesitation.

Joseph Gonzalez May 06, 2018

Shirin is an absolute pleasure to work with. She helped me navigate my search for a new apartment and minimized the associated stress! Shirin did a fantastic job of showing me apartments that fell into my spectrum while also getting a real good feel on what I was looking for. She did her research on what I wanted, gave high-quality listings, and quick & clear communication while still giving me enough space to process and think. I ended up finding an amazing space in the UES. I couldn’t be happier with the experience! Thank you!

Vidisha Paul May 09, 2018

Shirin took the effort to understand my requirements and what I am looking for. She had a great selection of apartments and patiently walked me through the pros and cons. She followed through with me and finally helped me find a great apartment.

Anna Stacy Ayomide Omobo June 14, 2018

Shirin was so wonderfully patient and communicative throughout our apartment search! Our housing needs changed very suddenly in the middle of the search and despite this fast turn-around, she remained calm and helped us find a place to suit our new situation within one day! Additionally, she kept in touch with us every step of the way, which was enormously reassuring to me and my roommate as first-time NYC renters. I highly recommend Shirin to anyone looking for an honest and painless rental process!

Stephanie Foyer July 27, 2021

I had the most wonderful experience working with Shirin. I am a first-time home buyer and Shirin was incredibly impressive with her knowledge, understanding of the market and details, negotiations and communication. She made the experience very positive and relaxing for me. I was able to quickly view every property I was interested in and Shirin organized the information in a very helpful way in which I could clearly understand the maintenance fee's, etc. I will definitely work with Shirin again and highly recommend her to friends, colleagues, etc. She is a pro!

Ana August 03, 2020

Shirin has been assisting me with my first apartment purchase for some time now, and I can confidently say there is no one I would rather work with. She is knowledgeable and much more proactive that most, something that I’ve truly come to appreciate during this process. Shirin is ready to answer my questions promptly and I can see that she goes the extra mile for her clients. I’ve already recommended her to my family for any upcoming real estate inquiries they may have, as I know they’ll be in good hands!

Mike Shultz August 03, 2021

As first time home buyers, we were very nervous about the entire process but Shirin made everything feel so smooth and manageable. She worked very hard for us to make sure we had appointments to see any apartments we expressed interest in and was always very quick to respond to any of our many questions. While we saw the units together Shirin would be ready to support in any way, sharing her perspective of the unit and using the info she learned about us to make thoughtful recommendations. After the offer was made on a home, Shirin kept us updated on the process and made great recommendations for who to work with in terms of Banks and Attorneys. Everyone she recommended was so kind and helpful. Also, since we were interested in a co-op, Shirin was very knowledgeable about the board application and made sure we were in great shape to apply. We couldn't recommend Shirin more to anyone who is looking for a realtor. Consider yourself in great hands if you have the opportunity to work with Shirin!

Kylie Souder August 16, 2018

Shirin was so kind and accommodating; she helped us throughout the entire process and also helped us get back in the building when we wanted to measure and prep everything. Could not more highly recommend her!

Anne Roca August 31, 2018

Shirin helped us get the apartment we wanted. She was professional, and always did her best to help us and answer all our questions. Thanks again!

Janeen Marshall August 12, 2019

Shirine represents the best there is of an agent. She was warm, engaging and truly made me feel like she was searching on my behalf as if she were family. She’s an advocate and guided me through showings truly understanding what my needs were and really nailed it when it came to appropriate listings. We are happily in a fantastic place and I’m truly grateful. After the whole experience she really felt like a friend I knew for a very long time. Thank you so much Shirin for all you’ve done for us!!!!

Andrew April 13, 2021

Mike Glenn was extremely helpful and always on time. He is a honest person who just wants to find the perfect house for you.

Matt Ziegler March 22, 2017

Jules was extremely helpful in finding a place and very knowledgeable of the areas that I was interested in. Anytime I had a question or wanted to hear more details about a certain listing, he was always accessible and never made me feel like I was being a pain. If you're looking for the most seamless and stress-free experience in finding a place to live in NYC, I'd highly recommend going to Jules.

NA February 18, 2020

Adam is awesome!

Jon Rosenberg March 09, 2017

Adam provided us with excellent service and was a pleasure to work with.

Molly Bowman March 22, 2017

Best broker I've used! He responded quickly to all my messages and was very easy to work with. Truly cared about finding me a good place for the best price. He wasn't pushy and was very understanding of what I was looking for in a new place. Will be a repeat client!

Allan Goldman March 09, 2017

Working with Adam was a real pleasure. He was very knowledgeable and helped find me an amazing apartment, I lived in for 5+ years.

James Andrew Tranos April 20, 2019

Jules is extremely professional and was always available to answer any questions I had. Would definitely work with him again.
