“Elena was our listing broker for our condominium at Griffin Court. She secured two offers for us to consider within a week, and she assisted us to close the deal quickly. Throughout the process, Elena was informative and very professional. She also spent countless hours helping us find a suitable apartment to purchase in the Village. Elena’s input on the sale and purchase was invaluable. Also, her dedication and resourcefulness was outstanding and we recommend to any seller or buyer.” – J. D.
“Having accepted a job posting abroad, I tried unsuccessfully to rent out my apartment on my own and quickly started running into problems. With the problems escalating, I handed everything over to Elena. Elena quickly took control of the situation and within one month, everything had been sorted out and the apartment was rented at a higher price that I had been asking. I was very impressed with the way Elena handled the situation. Ms. Metzler is very professional, careful and courteous and I would not hesitate to recommend her to other clients. My only regret is not asking Elena to take over the situation from the beginning.” – J. F.
“Elena is a terrific broker. She found us a classic Manhattan loft in Soho that we now call home. She was very sensitive to what we wanted and patient through months of looking at places. Elena frequently went above and beyond what would have been expected of any broker. Ms. Metzler negotiated the price of our loft to a point where we felt comfortable with, and made sure that the closing process went as smooth and as quickly as possible. This required extraordinary effort on her part. In the end, we are very happy with our loft and think Elena did an excellent job as our agent throughout the process.” – M. G.
“Last fall, I decided to move across the country and, as a first time homeowner, did not know how to start the process of renting out my apartment. Luckily, I was referred to Elena, whose professionalism, expertise, and friendly demeanor put me ease. She provided me with an accurate value and time frame for my unit to be rented. More impressive, though, was how she aided me with several responsibilities after I had already moved, including facilitating the preparation of my apartment for its new tenant. She truly went above and beyond so that I had to put in very little effort. I’m very grateful for having worked with her and highly recommend her.” – S. T.
“This past winter my husband and I had the pleasure of working with Elena. It was a very unusual situation which she handled so well. My son and his very pregnant wife were looking in NY for a co-op or condo. They were torn between Manhattan and Park Slope area of Brooklyn. Free time was a major problem so we helped them in the scouting process. Elena was amazing. Not only is she the brightest broker we’ve worked with but she is the hardest worker too. Every time we looked at properties, she brought new listings to the table that we had missed. She never relied on just us to tell her but on her own searched using our parameters and located other great possibilities. When we looked at properties in need of renovation she even had contractors meet at location for an assessment. She represented us very well in negotiations always on our side. What was very refreshing was her respect of the price, location and conditions we had all communicated. Not only will her hustle and kindness always be appreciated but together with her honesty and customer first attitude she will always be at the top of our broker list. She is a class act! Any questions please feel free to obtain our contact information from Elena.” – S. S.

“Elena is the best residential broker with whom I have worked, hands down. She always goes the extra mile (despite the length of time doing so can take), and suggests interesting strategies and approaches with regards to renting, buying and selling property. Plus, I never have to worry that she isn’t looking for my best interest, which is not easy to find in the cutthroat NYC real estate industry. I highly recommend working with her – it has truly been a pleasure.” – L.S.
“I worked with Elena over a couple months to find a new apartment and was very happy with her work. I never felt pressured but at the same time she stayed on top of finding new listings. She was also invaluable with the approval process, gathering all necessary information and following up with all the parties involved. I would highly recommend Elena.” – P.D.
