Esther helps her clients find the best real estate solution for their needs with an emphasis on investment properties for the short or long term. Growing up around real estate inspired her interest in helping others achieve their investment and residential goals through property ownership.

Originally from San Diego, Esther moved to New York City in 2008 and fell in love with her then-new home. She has since enjoyed diving into the culture, energy, diversity and architecture that make this city so unique. Having lived in Murray Hill and West Chelsea, Esther now resides in the West Village where she is a cemented member of her community. She considers downtown her stomping grounds, and appreciates the vibrant flavor of the different neighborhoods.

Though she knows the downtown area well, Esther is open and dedicated to working in any Manhattan location where her real estate client's needs take her. "Renting or buying is a huge decision, and I want to make it as easy as possible, whether you are looking to try a new neighborhood or invest in your future."

Esther attended school in Manhattan at Yeshiva University, Stern College where she majored in Art History and Psychology, and was captain of her tennis team. She also earned a certificate in Graphic Design at Parsons New School for Design. Prior to following in her father's real estate footsteps, Esther worked in publishing and design. Her work included writing for Time Out New York in the magazine's shopping and style section, giving her an insider's knowledge of NYC's best retail and lifestyle scene.

Esther did an amazing job with finding for me an apartment in New York. Her knowledge of the city, dedication to the job and responsiveness are first class. When moving from Germany Esther was the first contact for finding a new home. Her passion for her job and friendliness gave the true feeling of being welcome to New York. Esther knows Manhattan very well and really gives you the feeling that your search for an apartment is in the best hands.

When you move to New York, ask Esther. She will perfectly take care of finding you a new home.

I rented an apartment from this agent.

Esther exudes kindness and professionalism. She makes an arduous and tricky process feel manageable and even fun. She understands the market its procedure, but she also "gets people" and that is truly rare.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Honestly, it's so hard to find a good broker in this city. Esther was such a pleasure to work with. She really listened to what I was looking for and only showed me apartments that were a good fit. In the end, I found an amazing studio in the West Village and she made the application process so smooth (no nail biting!).

I would recommend Esther to literally anyone and everyone.
