Shiri (rhymes with “cheery”) Herbet understands that finding an apartment is one of the most challenging aspects of living in New York. In addition to her expert knowledge of all the city has to offer, Shiri’s clients value how she infuses the process with humor and lightheartedness, bringing a sense of calm, efficiency and even fun to what could otherwise be a very stressful time.
Shiri loves getting to know what makes her clients tick, and finding the perfect place for each of them to call home. Her passion for the Big Apple began as a teenager when she would visit from her native Israel. She’s delighted to call the Upper West Side home, and could draw each crack in the sidewalk there from memory, having made it her business to become an expert on the unique charm of her ‘hood.
Most apartment-hunters know, it’s not always possible to dedicate only the day-time hours to searching for your new home. For those clients who often burn midnight oil, Shiri can be especially helpful, since she is a night owl who prides herself on her quick response times even after hours.
Personality-wise, Shiri is best known as an adventurer. She has visited 35 countries, and loves sharing travel tales with similarly-minded friends and clients. She spends her free time taking advantage of the unique offerings of the best city in the world, enjoying everything from the perfect Happy Hour margarita (be sure to ask where!) to the latest Broadway show, art house movie theater or music venue.
Shiri is fluent in Hebrew.
