"I recently purchased my first home at 16 West 16th Street in Manhattan with Sharyn’s help, and she was nothing short of INCREDIBLE from start to finish. Thankfully I was referred to her by a close friend, and I would full-heartedly recommend her to anyone else! Sharyn was receptive to my feedback and quickly helped me triangulate on what I was looking for. She was extremely flexible to work with my work schedule, and didn’t push me to waste time on homes that weren’t a good fit. She was patient and knowledgeable in answering my questions throughout the process. Finding an apartment in NYC (that actually fits your checklist/budget) is extremely competitive, but Sharyn ensured I was ahead of the curve and best-positioned to ultimately get my offer accepted. She was proactive in coordinating activities between all parties (selling agents, my lender, my lawyer, management, etc.) to keep things moving efficiently. I was even able to close on the apartment EARLY thanks to her help. Sharyn goes above and beyond the call of duty!! During the closing period, I was traveling internationally which made logistics difficult. While I was away, Sharyn not only helped me coordinate my move between the moving company & my old/new building management companies, but she also helped me coordinate with the painting company to make sure my home was ready for me when I moved in. She was a true partner, and genuinely wanted me to be happy in my new home. Sharyn is a super hero and I couldn’t have done this without her. Make your life easier and call Sharyn Stuart!"Rich Lipman
"I worked with Sharyn for over a year until I found my current coop in Park Slope. We mostly looked in Brooklyn but she clearly also was knowledgeable about Manhattan, my other area of interest. She quickly understood what I was looking for. She knew the important questions to ask at each location and was able to put the places we saw together into a context for me with what was available so I could evaluate them. When it came time to make an offer, she gave me good advice each time (I put offers on more than one place) . When the process seemed stalled, she wrote a special letter explaining my financial information. My finances were probably more complicated than most people's as I moved frequently and had a lot of recent changes in jobs. Her letter got me this apartment! In the course of a year, I spent a lot of weekends looking at apartments with Sharyn. I enjoyed getting to know her personally. She is smart, intuitive, and a skillful negotiator. She is aided by a solid team behind her. I had a wonderful experience working with Sharyn and recommend her most highly."Laura Spitzer
"I talked to several real estate agents in Manhattan before I met Sharyn. She was the first one who really tried to understand our needs and worked really hard to make sure that they were met. She was personable and kind. We found just the perfect place in prime Lincoln Square and we are so glad that we found her."James Blair Jenkins
"We were very fortunate to be able to work with Sharyn, and we are grateful that we now own a lovely co-op apartment in Manhattan that is perfect for us. We’re a couple of designers/architects who had some particular ideas about the kind of spaces we wanted to live in, but we were also first-time homebuyers, so we had absolutely no experience with the process. Sharyn took the time to explain the process and provided information, as needed, so that we never felt overwhelmed. She was incredibly patient with us, throughout. Sharyn is an excellent communicator who was always easy to reach, and she didn’t pressure us to make hasty decisions or make any purchase. Her confidence and experience were reassuring, and she was backed by a tremendous team. She has deep knowledge of NYC and its housing market, and provided relevant insights. Sharyn encouraged us to discuss what we liked and didn’t like, and, throughout the process, she worked with us on our voyage to discover what mattered to us. Such a positive, delightful person to work with! Outstanding!!"Peter Y.
"I just purchased an apartment in a Coop building, and have been working with Sharyn throughout the whole process. I'm a first-time buyer so I had no previous experience but had heard horror stories about buying a coop in New York. Luckily Sharyn was a huge help in that she thoroughly explained the process to me and made sure everything went as smoothly as possible. Cortney took care of putting my board package so I didn't have to worry about that. I suspect I've been spared a huge amount of stress thanks to Sharyn and her team. Even after closing Sharyn is making sure that my moving preparations are going well and that I have someone to turn to if I need help. I would highly recommend Sharyn to anyone looking for a home in NEW YORK."Camille Prado
"Sharyn was an amazing broker and clearly views her role as a partner in the real estate search in the complex NYC market - I really could not imagine doing the NYC real estate search without her partnership. She clearly has an extensive understanding of how the market works and is able to provide a great perspective on the true value and tradeoffs of each unit you look through. She is a massive advocate for you through the entire process and was able to help negotiate and work with the agents on the other side of the process and set everything up for me so that it was nearly turn-key. Unprompted, she knew the negotiation items that were worth pressing and how to make sure you were protected and advocated for in every step of the process. She listed to what I was looking for and then was also able to extrapolate based on my reactions to the units I expressed interest it. The units she was able to propose all fit right into exactly what I was looking for in a way that was fairly remarkable. Additionally, she was also a partner in the whole moving process as well and was able to help me navigate the whole moving process with amazing referrals and thinking through all the details of what I would need to complete. If you need a broker / real estate agent and have the opportunity to work with Sharyn you should jump at the opportunity to partner with her."Brad E.
"Sharyn was awesome to deal with when it was time to list and rent my apartment. She was on top of things every step of the way. She responded promptly to my inquiries and kept me informed throughout the process. I would highly recommend Sharyn for her expertise and professionalism."B. Luzar
"Me and my roommate loved working with Sharyn! We were introduced to her by a fellow classmate and were instantly in love with the experience, responsiveness, and sympathy Sharyn provided. Sharyn is a very responsible agent who always puts her clients first, we managed to find a stunning apartment in a short amount of time during a very high-demand period and that is all thanks to her. I love that you can trust Sharyn to the fullest extent and she makes this easy by being attentive, contacting you on a daily basis, and keeping up with searches. I am so happy and grateful to have met her. I talked to 25 different brokers and no one can even come close to how amazing Sharyn is!"Nefeli V.
"Sharyn was excellent to work with! She took time to understand exactly what we were looking for and translated that into finding the perfect apartment for us. I would definitely work with Sharyn again in the future."Fiona Thompson
"Sharyn was extremely helpful and I highly recommend working with her in finding your next home! Sharyn was always very responsive and within a day of meeting her, she showed us multiple places that fit our criteria. She managed all of our communications with the leasing agent and landlords and was flexible in scheduling apartment showings."Courtney Knox
"Sharyn was super helpful for my roommate and I. She is by far the kindest and sweetest broker we worked with, and helped us find the perfect Apartment in NYC. She genuinely prioritised us, and did everything in her power to help us get an Apartment during one of the most competitive times in the Apartment market in NEW YORK."Vivien H.
"Our search was far from perfect before my roommate and I met Sharyn! I loved working with her because regardless of the pandemic and working purely online, she made the experience one of a kind. She is a kind and caring person and puts in her 100% to every listing she works on. I have recommended Sharyn and her vast expertise to countless friends to help them find their apartments!"Federica B.
"Sharyn was extremely professional, she always responded quickly, was fast and efficient and helped us find an apartment we loved. It had everything we wanted, walking distance from our schools in a great area and at a great price in a tough market. She was very knowledgeable about the market and understood what we were looking for. I highly recommend her!"Valentina B.
