As a first-time homebuyer dealing with renovations, I had a mountain of questions. Robin worked seamlessly and firmly with the seller agent and my real estate attorney for the extensive renovation and closing details. I ended up with a fully renovated apartment with custom detailing exactly to my specifications. Robin made the buying process smooth and easy. Her attention to detail, service and due diligence were superior. If you are a first-time homebuyer or experienced buyer—Robin is the agent to use. I am forever grateful to Robin and recommend her highly.
Robin was recommended by a very good friend of mine when I started the search to buy an apartment in Manhattan. What a wonderful recommendation! Robin patiently set up many viewings to accommodate my requests about certain features of the apartment until it "clicked". During the approval process by the co-op board, Robin's support was excellent in guiding me through. Robin's tremendous skill set and her humor made it fun and easy for me. Thank you, Robin!
Robin was our agent for a home we bought in Brooklyn. She was informative, insightful and always quick to respond to emails and calls. During our process of finding a home, Robin was always professional and affable. She was a pleasure to work with!
Robin is fabulous at what she does. I was a first-time home buyer, and she was extremely diligent and patient in finding a home and community that fit both my taste and budget. She is impeccably organized, and was consistent in following up with me to consider and discuss my options, and turned what could be a stressful process into a delight. I'm so grateful for her help and enthusiasm.
I had a wonderful experience working with Robin Ford. She is very thoughtful, intelligent and just really kind as well! I felt like she really understood what my husband and I were looking for and really pointed us to buildings that were right for us. When we couldn’t attend an open house, Robin went and videotaped it for us. I could not recommend Robin highly enough.
