Alisa is one of the best in the business out there - something I can vouch for having worked with her over a year to find the house that I bought.
She is very professional, extremely responsive and a seasoned Westchester expert. Most importantly, what sets her truly apart is that she will always have your best interests in mind.
She always provided us with honest estimates and helped us evaluate properties with objectivity. Twice, I almost overpaid on two separate bids but for Alisa who rightly suggested not to; and I'm glad I did not. Even with our eventual winning bid, she definitely helped save a few tens of thousands by not rushing us to close it. (No, I'm not an impulsive buyer but a year of tedium from searching for houses can get to you!!).
Not to mention, she was extremely patient despite us changing our specifications,
budget, area preferences being first time buyers and completely new to Westchester.
Alisa was recommended to me by a friend of mine who bought his house through her. She remains the go-to professional among my friend circle and I would surely request her services for my future dealings.
Alisa is simply the perfect broker. She is extremely knowledgeable about all the technical requirements and potential problems facing a seller, and surfaces those matters well in advance to streamline the process. She is also always available and extremely attentive to all matters. In addition, her style is very organized, professional and pleasant, making the experience comfortable and effective. I will also note that Alisa is smart and knows the industry and the lore to allow for nimble navigation of unusual or difficult issues as they arise. My wife and I could not recommend her more highly.
Alisa is the consummate professional who took excellent care of my family and me. We relocated to Westchester from the South, which was a challenging transition. As busy as she was, Alisa always responded quickly and honestly, and helped us to make great decisions. Beyond her extraordinary business acumen and knowledge of the market, Alisa is intelligent, kind and good humored. I cannot say enough about working with her except that she is the only agent I will call when the time comes for our next home.
We sold our apartment in New York City and decided to move to Westchester. Having previously lived in Boston for many years, we were not that familiar with the area. Alisa Kaplan was referred to us and she assisted us in purchasing our house. She was a fabulous asset. She is very professional and patient and spent quite a bit of time previewing various houses before showing us anything. She has a wonderful attitude and is a pleasure to deal with.
When we decided to put in a bid on a house, she was unbelievably thorough and helpful. As a Harvard Law School graduate with first class legal training, Alisa really does her homework and always goes the extra mile. She is very generous with her time and referred us to a closing lawyer, who handled the transaction very efficiently. Since moving into the area, Alisa has stayed in touch keeping us updated as to the real estate transactions in our area. She has also gone out of her way to be helpful when we have asked her for her advice.
In summary, we have been delighted to work with Alisa Kaplan and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to either buy or sell a house in Westchester County.
Alisa helped us to find our house at 9 Sunrise Ln, Scarsdale, NY. It took 1.5 years to find our dream house. During this time, Alisa was a great help to us. She is an excellent person, professional and respectful. I would highly recommend her.
Alisa Kaplan is the consummate real estate professional. First, and perhaps most importantly, she is a wonderful person. Alisa worked tirelessly to help us find a new home and displayed a patience that is not normally found among real estate agents. Thanks to Alisa's guidance, when we finally found our home, it was a perfect match for us. Alisa is a calm and incredibly smart agent who looks at all the variables that go into buying a home, i.e. schools, neighborhood, commute time, etc. She is warm and well-reasoned in her approach, which really puts you at ease when you are trying to make one of the most important decisions of your life. Alisa has a complete understanding of the market and is incredibly honest when helping her clients to evaluate potential homes.
Alisa found us a new home and sold a co-op for us, all in the same year. Our experience with both could not have been better and I strongly recommend Alisa to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You will not be disappointed.
Alisa was instrumental in helping us find the right property in the right area of Westchester. Since we'd just moved from London, we didn't know the area very well and were not keen to do the public school system or to buy a traditional house. What I liked best about working with Alisa was that there was no hard sell on a school system we had no intention of using (in comparison to other realtors in the area). Alisa worked closely and attentively with me over several months to meet my very particular property needs until we found the perfect house. She is professional, trustworthy, proactive and a pleasure to work with.
We started looking for a house in December, in the worst of weather possible. Alisa was with us every step of the way explaining to us the nuances of buying our very first house. She was very proactive in explaining to us all that was needed, getting us in touch with the right group, and always ready to help out in any which way possible. Every visit to look for a house brought new interesting challenges, but I am very happy that she always showed compassion and thorough professionalism which is so hard to come by.
Alisa is the best broker we have dealt with or seen. This is primarily due to two reasons we believe. First, she is super smart (see pedigree) and so will never waste your time with silly comments but instead is simply super informative. Second, Alisa is very open-minded (and a great listener) and so understood what we wanted; and so she greatly facilitated us in finding the house that was perfect for us. In short, we found her to be nothing short of incredibly caring. Impossible for us to have been happier.
We were first time buyer and needed a lot of information and help. Alisa was there to get us through every step of the way and stayed calm, professional, friendly and patient throughout. I could not expect ANYTHING more from a broker. She delivered everything I expected from her and way above and beyond. You won’t waste a minute of your time working with her. She is super efficient, organized and responsive. We are very grateful to have her working with us.
Alisa was very knowledgeable and helped us find a great house to buy.
She was patient with us and provided us with a lot of information about the area and the community in general.
Alisa was a pleasure to work with on the sale of our coop. She kept us informed and was knowledgeable about the local market. We would highly recommend her to others in the area.
I liked Alisa a lot. She was thorough and perhaps the most responsive person ever.
She has been helping me with local knowledge (good plumbers in the area, etc) years after we closed.
