Testimonials

We have been looking at investment properties for awhile and Loretta has recently helped us find the first one. She is very professional. She knows what she is talking about and always goes the extra mile. She is very well connected and put us in touch with a great property manager. We are very happy to have Loretta by our side and look forward to a long relationship with her.

After living on our own private island on the Connecticut shore for 30 years, we were introduced to Loretta who had the goal of finding us a “tear down” along the New York coastline between Rye and New Rochelle so that we could build a contemporary adult home. Loretta suggested we meet her at the Rye train station, where she proceeded to drive us to the lot and home that she believed was what we wanted. Loretta knows her territory and her clients. She was absolutely right. She had listened to what we wanted. She understood from where we coming [great deal of privacy and openness]. She was practical [why build when you do not have to even though she did show us other options]. Within less than 60 days, thanks to her no-drama negotiating style, including her deep knowledge of the surrounding market and the history of the purchased property, we were the proud owner of the home of our dreams in a perfect location. We continue to celebrate our great fortune in meeting Loretta when we were making such a large life-style change.

Working with Loretta put our minds at ease and we knew right away she was our advocate. She is thoughtful and takes the time to understands your needs. Loretta’s real estate market knowledge and insight into community gives her a wide lense that helped us learn more about what kind of home/community we wanted to raise our family. She is a class act and is someone we would recommend whole heartedly.

We are so thankful for all of the guidance and help Loretta provided to us in our search for our new home in Rye. Loretta’s immense knowledge of Rye as well as the surrounding neighborhoods coupled with her highest level of professionalism was evident from the very first time we met her. Coming from the city, we had very little knowledge of the neighborhoods as well as the housing market in Westchester. Loretta spent the time to not only educate us about the various neighborhoods (and the tradeoffs between different type of houses) but importantly devoted time to understand what our specific needs were. Loretta was also extremely respective of our busy (and hectic) schedules, and went out of her way to schedule appointments that fit our schedule (oftentimes on very last min notices). Loretta strikes the ultimate balance of being diligent but never pushy; sharing her views but never imposing. Importantly, we felt that she was always an advocate to us, every step of the way. THANK YOU Loretta for finding our dream home!!! We would recommend Loretta to any of our friends and family in a heartbeat!

We have had both a very successful sale and purchase last year with the help of Loretta. The sale was a huge success due to her tireless effort to make the home ready for sale; the house looked immaculate when it was listed and attention was paid to every little detail. She spent a lot of time on positioning it for the right buyers, staging the house and positioning it for the right buyers. It was a huge success with a sale within a week and multiple bidders. We bought our house after looking at several properties in Rye together and it was a time consuming journey as we looked at waterfronts and 19th century Victorians. Loretta spent hours to investigate the properties, from flood zones, the history of the properties, the work done and getting in engineers and contractors to figure out the scope of potential renovations. Eventually we walked away from several properties and ended up with our current house. This was following weeks of negotiating to come out at the right price. Loretta is very sensitive to paying a ‘fair price’ and she wants to know any potential issue with the house before there was a deal. She went beyond her duties as agent in lining up contractors, painters, architects etc. Overall it is amazing how engaged and committed she is, while her knowledge about the Rye housing market is second to none. I highly recommend Loretta to any potential buyer and/or seller.
