My Listings and Sales
Gay was very helpful throughout the whole process.Donna M Bergin Trust
Ms. Gay Rosen is a wonderful broker. She knows the market well, and understands her client's needs intuitively. Over the course of 1.5 years, 2022-2023, we sold two co-op flats in Bronxville, NY, through her, and she always stuck by us with appropriate advice, recommendations, and market updates. N.B. This was completed while interest rates were rising, and the co-op board rejected one buyer. If you wish to purchase or sell anything in lower Westchester County, ask for Gay Rosen.Victor Tzu-Ping Chao
Gay and Helen worked tirelessly from staging to closing. They dealt with every little glitch professionally. I had complete confidence in them all the way. If I weren’t moving out of state I would befriend them in a heartbeat!Joyce Engel
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN AMAZING REAL ESTATE BROKER TO BUY OR SELL A HOMEGay Rosen is the best! We just completed a very complicated co op estate sale and Gay was with us every step of the way- patient, kind, intelligent and took care of every detail start to finish. No wonder she's the favorite broker in Rochelle Heights! She even helped get $20,000 more than our asking price.Please give her a call if you need a true professional-you won't be sorry!Margaret Chadwick, Client
I would recommend Gay Rosen, who is very responsive, proactive, and goes the extra mile to ensure our needs are met. We are based in Hong Kong, and this transaction was completed in New York.Lydia Chao
Gay is an exceptional real estate agent. This was our first time buying a home and we felt that Gay had our best interest in mind throughout the process. From finding the right home to the closing stages, she was there every step of the way. Gay was a wealth of knowledge on the market we were looking to buy in. She was able to provide us great background on everything from schools to flood plains. Her transparency made us feel comfortable with our decision to purchase a home. We highly recommended Gay Rosen for anyone looking to purchase a home.Matthew O'Brien
She went above and beyond. Helped stage house. Professional photographer. Video everything. She worked tirelessly to make sure our house look the way she wanted it to make it sell for the best price possible. Best decision we made in choosing Gay to represent us.Paul Salov , Seller
Gay, thank you for all your help with the selling of my home. I truly appreciated your patience and expertise. Your insight and hard work was extremely valuable to me. I don't think I would of been able to handle all the stress, if you would not have taken me under your wing. I highly recommend Gay Rosen for your real estate needs. She was always available to answer all of my questions, and kept me abreast of multiple issues which arose during the process. She spent an incredible amount of time assisting me with completing the county’s requirements. Gay truly step up to the plate and always made me feel like my needs were first priority. But this just speaks to her commitment to making sure I was well taken care of. Gay went above and beyond, working extremely hard in assisting me with the all the road blocks which delayed the selling of my home. I was living out of the country and Gay kept me abreast of all issues that arose. Her honesty and integrity is to be admiredJulia Gonzalez, Seller
Gay was such a pleasure to work with! She was so hands on and an absolute expert when it came to pricing and selling strategy. Would highly recommend working with Gay. New RochelleAnna K.
I love working with Gay! She has integrity and works to assist us whenever we need support. She is the face of Sotheby's to our family.Rosalind Simpel
"Gay has provided the best service we could have hoped for from a selling agent and then way more Her experience and deep knowledge of the market helped tremendously through all the steps from defining a pricing strategy, designing a premium level brochure and web ad, staging the house, organizing the visits, and supporting negotiations Gay has been actively helping us to make our house look nice and attractive She has all the contacts we needed to solve every little issue we encountered, with experts in plumbing, roofs, surveyors, ... and managed to get their immediate attention when needed And then in this time of Covid she took the initiative of a 3D online house staging which relaunched the selling of the house when the market was stalling She has always been reactive, reliable, taking initiatives, with a positive attitude, and a nice smile And last but not least the house is sold at a price matching our expectations We highly recommend her"56 Hillside Cres, New Rochelle, NY 10804Jean Marc Wassen
Gay Rosen is knowledgeable, hard-working, honest, personable and was dedicated to selling a difficult house.The staging, photography and videography was exceptional and generated a significant online interest. Gay was extremely accommodating to buyers' schedules, even when inconvenient. Gay effectively researched buyers' questions although it was not always her responsibility to do so. Gay provided valuable contacts and effective solutions that assisted and reduced some of the costs associated with vacating the house and premises.Gay was able to sell this home rather quickly even with the requirements, regulations and restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic. Gay Rosen's personal assets and dedication is the reason the sale was so successful. Teresa Merlucci 31 Premium PointTeresa Merlucci
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.Past Client
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.Lisa Schnall
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.Past Client
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.Anar Rathod
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.CML
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.D & D
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 .E.
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!J.
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.Jcwillert
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.Mason Tilden
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.JK

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.Diego Ruiz
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.LD
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.Erin Gelfand
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.JP
