Ilisa was absolutely amazing. Could not have asked for a better realtor.Brian and Holly Hesse
This Thanksgiving I’m thankful for Ilisa Crosby. When I needed to get out of my over-priced apartment, Ilisa scoured the market for me, patiently showed me numerous apartments, and found the perfect one for me. The new apartment is bigger and cheaper & I love it! Ilisa is knowledgeable, hard-working & never gives up. Best. Realtor. Ever.Annmarie Lynch
Ilisa is talented, knowledgeable, patient, and kind . Her skillful guidance enabled me to sell my home within a short period of time, and I am thrilled with my new residence, all thanks to her steadfast support through the entire process. I highly recommend Ilisa Crosby to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property in Westchester.Joan Alciati
Ilisa is the dream realtor! We were navigating a move from the Uk to NYC, which ended up dragging for 6 months but Ilisa stuck with us, proactively sending us options, helping us navigate the different areas to align with our needs and wish list, and finding amazing apartments for us to consider with every detail we had discussed- we ended up with a beautiful place on her recommendation and we couldn’t be happier . She is extremely knowledgable, an amazing advocate for us when negotiating and made sure everything was perfect before we exchanged keys. She is such a pleasure to work with. If you need a realtor - she’s your person! I’d give her 6 stars if I could.Elizabeth Anscombe
Ilisa was a great agent and resource for first-time home buyers in Westchester county. She was patient with us even when we were extremely picky and helped us narrow down our search. She worked so hard to get us the right house for a fair price and made herself available on evenings and weekends to accommodate our busy schedules. She was proactive and helped us view homes as soon as they came on the market. I would definitely recommend her!-Stephanie M
This is my second time buying a home with Ilisa; she is very helpful and has excellent negotiation skills. If the house you're buying is worth less than what it's listed for, be assured that she will get it for you for cheaper. Her fun personality makes her easy to talk to. She is a good listener and will get you precisely what you want. Additionally, she's always there for you. I recommended her to my brother, and I will recommend her to others I know.Jordan S.
Ilisa was fantastic from start to finish. When we first met at an open house, she really listened to me and then proactively sent me a listing for the perfect place the minute it became available. She's also a great negotiator and repeatedly thought of things I would have missed. Thanks to her, I had a smooth and enjoyable experience buying a home.Shonna K.
Choosing to work with Ilisa was the best decision we could have made at the start of our home buying process. She connected us to the best team of professionals, from our inspector to our mortgage broker and lawyer. She is very resourceful, kind, easy to speak to, sincere, and professional. She was available to answer every question and to educate and advocate on our behalf anytime we needed her. We sincerely felt like she was on our side throughout this process. I would highly recommend Ilisa an an agent. She was our cheerleader and made nervous first-time buyers feel very comfortable.Fernandine A.
Ilisa is amazing! As first-time home buyers, we had almost no idea what we were doing. She helped us every step of the way, from finding listings to the closing table. She was very supportive and always had the answers to any questions we had. I’d recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell a home. She will definitely take care of you!Jerry K.
Ilisa made it happen - she defined the sales process, kept us focused throughout, and was pleasant to work with. Her suggestions helped maximize the price and reduce the time to sell. Her guidance and efforts to expedite the local construction approval process were very helpful. Ilisa knows how to sell a house and understands the local market.Steven S.
Ilisa came highly recommended. After a positive first meeting, we decided to work with her, and she got started that same day, offering suggestions on what we should do to create that vital first impression a buyer wants to experience. Her suggestions were spot on. She told us what paint colors to use and recommended we add black mulch in the garden, which made such a difference. Her marketing and strategy plan was explained to us from the start. The goal, she explained, was to list it at a certain price because she knew it would go over and ask if we did this. The next few weeks became a very rewarding experience as we watched Ilisa navigate each offer. She has exceptional skills in negotiating and balancing the different dynamics involved in selling a property. She is highly motivated and has her finger on the pulse at all times. We ended up with numerous offers, with one above asking, just as she said. Ilisa came through for us in the most professional way. We could never have done this without her, and we have no hesitation in recommending her, be it to sell or buy - she is the best!!Ken L.
From start to finish, Ilisa Crosby was the most professional and supportive realtor that we could have asked for. My wife and I bought our dream home in Mamaroneck, and Ilisa was there to answer all questions, be an active advocate for us, and even bring up important details we didn't think of at the time. I highly recommend Ilisa to represent both buyers and sellers because she is fair to both parties and has clear communication to make the sale as smooth as possible. Thank you, Ilisa, for all your countless hours and attention to facilitating the purchase of our new home.Trevor R.
Ilisa is a unicorn of an agent. I initially chose to work with her because she’s local to where I wanted to buy and knows the community very well. This was incredibly helpful, but I know she would have done an amazing job wherever I was looking to buy. Ilisa is the type of agent who will truly work tirelessly on your behalf. There’s never been a time when she didn’t respond to me within minutes. She will advocate for you no matter the obstacle. You want an agent that stays on top of things 100% of the time, and Ilisa will not waste a second to get things moving. As a first-time home buyer, I needed someone whom I could trust and who would have my very best interest in mind. Ilisa gets to work with the utmost integrity and helps you maneuver the process endlessly. She will check on you every step of the way and won’t let you forget to keep up with your buyer’s homework. Ilisa is incredibly charming but also a tough and knowledgeable negotiator who will fight to get the maximum possible out of your deal. Most importantly, Ilisa is a generous, fun, and all-around good human. You’ll want her to be your friend.Bianca W.
We knew Ilisa from when our kids went to school together in Brooklyn, so when it came time to sell our investment property in upstate NY she was our first choice. We lead very busy lives running our business, but Ilisa handled everything for the sale remotely. She gave excellent advice on everything - what to do to improve the curb appeal, recommended a lawyer, and was able to advertise the property to a much wider audience than expected. She got us a great price, kept the tenants informed at each step, and when the buyer’s mortgage broker dragged on and on, Ilisa’s team put pressure on to close the deal. I would definitely recommend her!!Alex C.

As first-time home buyers, we were nervous, especially after a wreck of an experience we had with Redfin just prior. We knew we needed to look for a trustworthy realtor who would walk us through the whole process, point out things we wouldn't know to look at and advocate for us. Ilisa was that and more. She exceeded our expectations, and our entire journey was as seamless as home buying could possibly be. Ilisa recommended us our inspector, lender, and attorney--all of who are great, and it was this team that helped us close in just 26 days! Thank you so much, Ilisa :)Marion C.
The home buying process can definitely be intimidating, especially for first-time home buyers like my girlfriend and me. Ilisa was there for us every step of the way to calm our nerves and answer our never-ending questions. We knew it was a good fit from the start when we were searching for the right real estate agent. Ilisa quickly responded to our initial reach-out and went above and beyond to provide details we wouldn’t have even known to ask for. We’re extremely grateful for the team that Ilisa recommended to be able to close in less than a month. Thanks again, Ilisa, for all that you’ve done for us! We would gladly recommend her to anyone in the Westchester area looking for a dedicated and attentive agent who will keep your best interest in mind.Brian C.
Ilisa is the consummate professional. I initially came across her via a Zillow contact form (for a rental, might I add), and soon, she became our de-facto agent as we pursued a move from Brooklyn > Westchester. She followed up with me weekly, answered all my questions, and conducted multiple house tours for us (over FaceTime) when we couldn't be there in person. She was ever patient and eventually helped us secure a home for purchase. Real estate agents get a bad rap as "door openers" in NYC; Ilisa was so much more than that!!Rachel J.
