Known for her outgoing, friendly personality and encyclopedic knowledge of New York City neighborhoods and developments, Deondra Gonsalves combines the qualities of a born salesperson with a commitment to deliver the best possible results for each of her clients. Deondra’s highly personable approach was honed over her years in sales positions and through her training as a professional singer and actress. She has a relentless drive to produce favorable outcomes for her clients, and finds genuine joy in helping people fulfill their real estate dreams. “My favorite part of this business,” says Deondra, “is getting to know people and helping them find the very best fit for them.” Deondra is constantly in touch with developments in the local real estate industry and always makes sure her clients are fully informed about all of their options. In addition to her background in the performing arts, she spent many years in event sales and account management, as well as working at elite NYC hospitality venues including the Gansevoort Hotel Rooftop and Mondrian SoHo hotel. The attentive customer service skills she developed in these roles are supplemented by her extensive network of VIP clientele—an elite group of New Yorkers she draws on to ensure her listings always achieve optimal exposure. Originally from San Diego, Deondra has been a New York City resident for more than a decade. “I know this city like the back of my hand,” she says. “More importantly, I always take the time to sit with my clients, listen to their needs, and help find the exact right fit for them.” Deondra lives in Astoria, Queens, an enclave she appreciates for the cultural diversity and wide variety of cuisine. Her years of experience in the performing arts include intensive training at a theater conservatory and traveling with theater groups, and she always enjoys any opportunity to sing, act or dance.
