Lisa Simonsen

I was blown away by how much I was able to get for my NYC apartment. I will always be so grateful to have had Lisa negotiating on my behalf. There's no one in NY that I'd rather work with it."

Lisa Ling, world renowned journalist & host of The View

My association with Lisa began in late 2012 and revolved around her efforts to help me sell a Fifth Avenue in a building which was still coming through some legal issues of its own...with a difficult sponsor and a relatively new board.

Once Lisa had obtained the oral deal, I was impressed with her team back at the office...their diligence and professionalism. Assuming an ongoing dialogue with seller and buyer alike, building manager and attorneys, the team helped see the deal each step of the way through closing....smoothly and in a timely fashion.

She is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, has a great management style and gets the deal done. From my vantage point, she is also well liked by her clients and staff and brings a level of trust to the residential brokerage business in New York City which oft times is sorely missing.

Lisa is the person you hire when you want to know the job will get done to a level of suberb satisfaction and the level of personal service is like family"

Jonathan Farkas, NY Philanthropist

We just bought an apartment on 5th Ave sight unseen through the internet. How could we afford to be so casual?

We trusted Lisa Somonsen's enthusiasm, her intelligence and her objectivity. We love our pied a terre!

Nancy Ellison & Bill Rollnick, former CEO of Mattel

Whether you are looking for that very special unique property or that unbelievable deal...Lisa Simonsen will find it.

Anand Khubani, CEO Idea Village

Lisa Simonsen made looking and then buying an apartment positively fun. Anyone who has been through the process knows how remarkable this makes Lisa! Happily she helped me through selling two apartments. Lisa Simonsen helped me find the space I secretly wanted and still don't know how she knew. Lisa's intuition and sensitivity to people are two of the qualities that make her superb at her job.

-Serita Winthrop, NY educator and philanthropist

I had been looking for a condo in NY for some time and with some frustration until I was introduced to Lisa Simonsen.

Lisa had an immediate sense for what I was looking for and an understanding of my time constraints, as I was in NY only on occasional short weekends. The search with her was highly focused, extremely well organized, unparalleled in efficiency, and fun. We found my dream condo within one weekend. The purchase was one of the best decisions I have made in my life, in terms of personal happiness and as an investment. Lisa and her team have recently handled the temporary lease of my condo in the same high power high efficiency and delightful manner.

I highly recommend Lisa with no hesitations. You will be in the best hands possible.
