I have an extensive background working with people, catering to their unique personalities, and providing them with top-notch service. The real estate business is much more than just showing properties and closing deals. It's about building relationships, treating people with attention and respect as you help facilitate one of the major decisions of their lives. I am dedicated to understanding my clients and their investment goals. Born in Belgium to Russian parents, and raised in Germany and the Czech Republic, I speak fluent German, English, Russian and Czech. I hold a BA degree in Language, Culture & World Trace from Pace University in New York, where I graduated Magna Cum laude. As a New York City resident for 15 years, I reside on the Upper West Side. My knowledge of Manhattan stretches from uptown to downtown, as does my appreciation of each neighborhood's personality and history. In my personal life as well, I strongly believe in caring for people, the environment and animal rights. I spent two months helping Hurricane Sandy victims providing supplies, raising significant funds and rebuilding their homes. I have also coordinated translators for FEMA in Russian-speaking neighborhoods. For a health balance, I enjoy yoga and meditation. I am excited at the prospect of working with you and finding you your perfect home. Contact me today!
