I had the very good fortune to be represented by your agent, Berdie Stein, in the process of buying and selling a home. I enjoyed my every meeting and conversation with her.
I have owned 3 houses and thus have been in contact with numerous Real Estate agents, but never met the likes of Berdie. She is charming, with a ready laugh and smile. She listened well and was highly attentive to the needs of her clients. She returned calls promptly and sent greetings and information through the computer. In this way I knew she had me on her mind. Berdie volunteered her time, her expertise, her opinions and advice whenever she felt it would serve me well.
Berdie is a big asset. I hold her obvious decency and honesty in high regard. Please know how much I appreciate her services. She is UNIQUE.
I thank her and would recommend her to anyone who wants the very best.

We first worked with Berdie when we moved to Westchester County from DC in 2007. At what was the height of the market, Berdie helped us find the best neighborhood for our needs, helped us navigate a very competitive home buying scene, and made sure all went smoothly. When it was time to pack up and move cross-country seven years later (this summer), we didn't need to call around. We went straight to Berdie. She knew we needed to sell our house quickly and helped us prepare the house, stage it, and price it right. We got multiple offers and had the house under contract within days of putting it on the market. But it didn't end there. The stress of a cross-country move with three young children was tremendous. Berdie was frequently in contact to see what she could do to make things less stressful for us. She goes above and beyond. It is not just a real estate transaction for Berdie. She got us in a great house, helped us sell the great house at a price we were happy with in a very short time frame, and did whatever she could (beyond the details of the home sale) to make a cross-country move a bit less stressful. Thanks, Berdie!
Working with Berdie on our recent home purchase was a pleasure from start to finish. She's warm, knowledgable, accommodating, easy to reach, and always goes the extra mile for her clients. We would recommend her without hesitation to anybody looking for or selling a home, and look forward to seeing her in the neighborhood for years to come.

Berdie is a force of nature. Within days of our initial meeting, she had our house photographed, floor plans drawn, marketing materials produced and held a catered lunch for area brokers. Every last detail was perfectly handled and we had a contract within weeks even though the market was slowing down. Berdie's extensive experience really put us at ease. And somehow with how busy she is, she always responds immediately and makes you feel that you are her only client. She held our hand through every step of the process from staging to finding us a new house and even weighing in on future renovation plans. She's not just a broker you can trust but a friend you can count on to help with one of the biggest decisions you will ever make.
