Mari Sakamoto came to New York in 1999 years ago, and the first thing she did was work with real estate agents to find an apartment. She did find one, but vowed to do things differently when she became an agent. Understanding the overwhelming nature of finding a home in Manhattan, Mari today thinks like her customers, who she serves with the utmost well preparedness and attentive service. She provides full support and quality information so you will know your choices, and make the right decisions based on your needs, lifestyle and budget.
Whether you’re a longtime New Yorker seeking your next apartment or are making a fresh start in the city from another part of the world, Mari will walk you through the real estate process with close guidance. Currently residing on the Upper West Side, she loves her neighborhood and wants you to feel the very same no matter what section of the Manhattan you choose as your home.
Originally from Japan, Mari attended Meiji university in Tokyo then attended Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA on a Rotary Foundation Scholarship. She previously worked as a magazine and newspaper photographer in Japan and New York honing her creative eye and sharp research skills that make her so effective as an agent.
Raised with the standards that a client always comes first, Mari will treat you with respect and make you her top priority. Her passion for work is complemented by her love of a wide array of interests that include baking and cooking, dressmaking and millinery, horseback riding, Japanese Martial Arts, Kyudo (archery) and ballroom dance.
