I have been buying and selling real estate properties in New York City and the Westchester County for more than 40 years and Gay is the best broker I have ever used. She is very familiar with the Westchester County real estate market and a good negotiator. In every house showing she prepared all relevant information regarding the houses that she was going to show us such as detail information of each house, taxes, schools, transportation, location, neighborhood and market research. She patiently and attentively pointed out the areas of interest to us. I strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good real estate broker.
I couldn't have hoped for a more supportive, reliable and knowledgeable professional to help sell my property. Gay knows her market through and through and how to sell into it. Extremely hard working! She gets my highest accolades .
First class real estate agent. Knew her market, fine tuned her research in accordance with our property, extremely hard working, always picked up her phone!
To say Gay is exceptional seems like an understatement. She goes so far above and beyond what anyone could reasonably expect of a realtor that she is in a class by herself. Gay handled a complex cross-country work relocation with indefatigable attention to detail and a kind, supportive spirit during a very stressful time. She is firm and has strong negotiating skills, always looks out for your best interest, is a great communicator and is very knowledgeable about relocation-related issues. Gay also listens well, doesn't waste your time, is smart and extremely hardworking, and always has your back. She's the best, and her record reflects that. I recommend her unreservedly and enthusiastically - I'm glad I can recognize her outstanding efforts in this forum.
We worked with Gay for just over a year trying to find the perfect house in this difficult market. She was extremely patient and had insightful input about each property, which we truly came to value. She went above and beyond what is expected for phenomenal customer service. We’ve come to regard Gay as a friend. She is well respected in her industry, she’s well versed in the local neighborhoods, and practices business with integrity. We cannot recommend her more highly.
It was a long process and we were so lucky to have you by our side. You made everything seem easy and you always kept us on a positive mode. We have already given your name to several neighbors who will be selling their houses in the area.
Gay helped us purchase our new home and sell our existing one. Gay went well above our expectations in helping us pay the right price for our home. Gay is very knowledgeable in lower Westchester and helped us zero in on our dream home from a wide variety of homes available. She was able to provide spot on comps which assisted us in self-assuring our offer and final purchase price. Soon after we closed Gay went to work on the sale of our former house in Pelham, NY. She was able to quickly get the house on the market to show for sale. We went through a lengthy debate about how to price the home to maximize views and our return. We ended up selling the house over our asking price and was able to sell it within a month of the initial listing. It was a win win! Finally, Gay was able to successfully negotiate a close to 20% abatement on our property taxes for our new house. Gay took the lead in meeting and discussing our request with the assessor's office. She prepared all of the documentation and fought to get the reduction. The abatement will be an added bonus as we start our new journey in our new house, which we totally love.
"Gay Rosen represented me in buying a co-op apartment in Larchmont, NY. Her expertise, market savvy, and compassion impressed me deeply and resulted in my buying a home I love. I am incredibly pleased with her service and consider her a friend. She is a constant joy in an often stressful process. You will be lucky to have her representation."
I am writing this note to recommend the services of Gay Rosen. Gay has been our Real Estate Agent for the past few months, assisting us in the process of buying a new home in Westchester County, New York. We have been extremely pleased with her services and am glad to share that we have just successfully negotiated the purchase of a home thanks to her advice.
Gay has an excellent knowledge of the market in the region and is very well connected. She tries to find the perfect balance between the needs of her clients and market availability and was very quick to respond to our queries, which were many. She is constantly scanning for opportunities and was able to provide us with information on available homes as soon as they went out on the market.
She was by our side during the entire process, provided constant follow up and helped us negotiate several key elements with the sellers. I worked with several agents before and Gay has been the best I have ever worked with. I highly recommend her for any real estate business you would like to engage in.
Please contact me should you require any additional information.
Gay helped us find our dream home! She is patient, proactive, knowledgable and always cordial and polite when dealing with other parties. We would not have been able to complete our purchase without the benefit of Gay's professionalism and guidance! She is amazing and a pleasure to work with.
We were truly fortunate to work with Gay when we bought our first home in New Rochelle! Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about the area and the housing market, but she is kind and generous with her time and advice. She made the home buying process so wonderful and we are just so grateful!! I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.
For the past three years, Gay has helped us through the difficult process of moving in Westchester County, both in temporary digs and finally into our new home. Throughout the process, she was extremely knowledgeable of the area, listened precisely to our needs, and filtered through homes that did not fit the bill. She was there during rental walkthroughs before and after, took pictures of the rental before, and then brought them to the final walkthrough to make sure we didn't pay for anything that wasn't our fault. During the house finding/building process she went to many homes/land with us and gave her honest opinion or each home, its pros, and cons and why we should or should not look at it. When we finally decided to build she was very helpful in influencing our layout choices to make sure the homes resale ability would be high. She went to several closing walkthroughs and found items our inspecting engineer (whom she helped recommend) or I didn't catch. Having had a horrible experience with our agent during our first home sale, Gay was a complete professional, with a stable of people to help during this process. If you are considering someone else, just stop, you have already found your agent.
Gay Rosen was very attentive to our needs and followed up quickly with all the requests that we made. She kept us abreast of changes during the sale process and although we faced some problems with the board (unrelated to her responsibilities as an agent), she stepped up and took care of all of the issues, including hand-delivering documents to keep us on schedule. I really appreciate that Gay is very professional, a knowledgeable agent, yet easy to talk to.
I have nothing but praise and gratitude of all that Gay Rosen did for my family. Seriously-she didn't just 'sell our house'. She took our hands and led us through the process from A to Z. This house would not have sold without her hard work, expertise, patience with our situation (long distance sale between many relatives and involving way too many lawyers) and sense of humor. She swooped in and took over every task that needed to be done, including scrubbing out the refrigerator because she didn't like the way the cleaners cleaned it. She was essential to the sale because nobody in our family lived locally. She knew every contractor, every expert that we needed to hire, and she would run over to the house to meet them and let them in, then go and make more phone calls on our behalf, then make arrangements to meet inspectors. When there were issues about what work to do, which offer to accept, she would wisely remain objective and just provide facts and statistics so we could make our own decisions. No matter how often we asked for her opinion, she would gently abstain from giving one, and just offer some more points about recent sales in the area for us to chew over. When I say that she did so much beyond the normal work of a realtor, I'm not exaggerating. We truly would not have made it through this process without her. The only reason I wish I lived in Westchester County, was so that I could let anyone know who lived there, that they would be as lucky as we were to have her leading our team and our sale.
Gay Rosen is absolutely, 1,000,000%, the consummate professional agent. Her above-and-beyond approach to attention to details, including and not limited to her breadth of knowledge about the real estate industry and its ever-fluctuating pricing; aggressive (yet tactful!) ability to accept offers and negotiate accordingly; make suggestions to the seller for those "extra touches" needed to market a property so as to attract maximum interest from buyers; communication capabilities with buyers' agents and conveyance of such communications with the seller; and overall patience with, and responsiveness to, the every thought, request, and demand of the seller, couldn't be matched by any other professional in her field. Her finesse and lovely overall demeanor left this seller with the best experience possible.
