Rashida "SHIDA" Harris Photo

Rashida "Shida" Harris is a native New Yorker with an extraordinary sense of the Manhattan real estate market. She is a self proclaimed "go getter". To her, real estate isn't work, it's a passion.
She takes the extra steps to ensure her clients needs are met. Shida's desire to succeed has followed her through life and she attributes her success to her parents, both of whom are teachers (hence the highly organized work approach and extreme attention to detail).   Shida graduated with a BA in Communications from the University at Albany, and prior to entering real estate, she enjoyed a successful ten year career in the fashion industry. All of her experiences and her pumped up positive outlook have all contributed to becoming a confident and loyal realtor.    When she actually stops working and takes what she likes to call "Shidatime", she enjoys museums, live music, candle making, cardio kickboxing, replicating recipes she saw on the Food channel (she makes a killer grilled cheese sandwich!!!), and frequents the New York Philharmonic.    Why select Shida as your real estate agent?  She genuinely listens to her clients and will work tirelessly on your behalf. She takes pride in being an honest, enthusiastic and knowledgeable professional.   Shida is looking forward to working with you and devoting her efforts to your real estate goals.

Shida was an absolute pleasure to work with! She is very patient, attentive and has a super upbeat personality, which actually made this process FUN!
(Plus she treats her clients for Starbucks AND pays for the cabs! BONUS!!!)

I would give her a 10 star rating if I could!

Shida literally contacted me within minutes of my inquiry about an apartment.

We set up an apppointment and she briefly explained what documentation I would need, and also how the NYC rental process works (I relocated from California, so I was completely clueless).

Shida saved me SO much time, explaining how in Manhattan, the rental market is "open listings", open to all agents in NYC, so it's pointless to reach out to multiple agents who can all show you the SAME apartments... which is funny because I had already reached out to a few agents that day, but Shida responded the fastest and educated me about the market, so I decided to work only with her!
BEST DECISION EVER!!!

I was looking for no-fee apartments, but Shida said that I will have way more options if I also saw fee apartments as well.

I actually ended up finding a HUGE 1 bedroom apartment only 1 block from the 4/5/6 train (and Shake Shack!) for only $2350, and Shida negotiated a lower fee...

Shida knows the Upper East Side inside out, SHE IS WORTH EVERY PENNY, and I refer her to all of my friends and colleages.

Thank you Shida for your hard work... and the housewarming gift!

I had a great experience with Rashida. She showed my two roommates and I several apartments that were right up our alley!

She responded to my initial inquiry quickly and was extremely thorough in answering any and all questions.

I would highly recommend her as a broker to anyone that is looking in NYC. She is friendly, honest, willing to hustle and puts in extra effort to get her clients what they want.

I had a really good experience with Shida, I was in NY less than 1 week from having moved from Switzerland.

She contacted me almost immediately and didn't pull the very common "bait and switch" that a lot of brokers do. She showed me a lot of the upper east side giving me a lot of information of the area, it was really helpful.

I would highly recommend her as a broker for people in the future, pleasant, helpful and showing real apartments rather than fake or stock apartments on her online portfolio, takes photos of the apartments and sends you a full summary afterwards. Brokers are new to me, but I can't see what more I would expect from one.

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.
