(47)

Faye understands the importance of having a place one can be proud to call home. She has lived in and around some of the most exquisite real estate both in the U.S. and abroad. That's why for her, real estate is more than just numbers on paper; it's about property, people, no matter who it is, and family, regardless of of how big or small.

Faye hails from Dubai, one of the most beautiful emirates within the UAE, where magnificent real estate is a given. She moved to New York City in 2006, and loved being surrounded by the striking architecture.

After earning her Bachelor degree from Excelsior College, Faye went on to earn two certificates, from Fashion Institute of Technology and New York University respectively. Having worked in the financial world in Dubai and the fashion industry in the U.S., she has acquired seasoned expertise dealing with a diversity of clients, which ensures excellent service and outcomes for her NYC real estate clientele.
Prior to joining Douglas Elliman, Faye was associated with two other top-name brokerage firms. She specializes in rentals and sales throughout Manhattan, and is fully dedicated to making her clients' dreams a reality.

Faye's team, specifically Loreta Attard, whom I recently worked with, were nothing short of phenomenal. Energetic, professional, friendly and caring, from the moment we left the office and hit the ground running, Loreta was a fabulous agent and an overall delightful person - she continually went above and beyond in finding the perfect apartment for me (which was definitely no easy task given my tight budget and need for a dog friendly building). I highly recommend Faye, Loreta and her entire team to anyone searching for an apartment in NYC - thank you!!

Before coming no NY, Faye responded to my mails and she sent me a lot of options. When I came no NY, we made an appointment. During that appointment I definitely understand that she is more than an agent. She was so kind and friendly. Agents are generally eager to find an apartment for you and they do not take into account the your preferences. But Faye's aim is to find an apartment which is suitable for you. During the process both Faye and her team Julian, Efrain were positive and helpful. Eventhough, I did not rent an apartment from Faye, she guided me through the whole process. This also shows that she is very different than the others. It was very nice to work with her. Thank you for all of your efforts Faye!

Faye was prompt, helpful, professional and congenial. She was able to arrange the final steps to obtain an apartment. I will seek her assistance in the future and will refer her as others will be pleased with her services.

I worked with Or-Eli, an agent who works together with Faye and she was absolutely fantastic. Very professional and courteous, she was extremely helpful and accommodating of my challenging housing situation. I would absolutely recommend anyone to work with Faye's team.

Faye and her team is amazing. I inquired about a listing and she replied to my NakedApartments message promptly!

My boyfriend and I flew in on Friday the 7th, and we had an appointment with Faye on the 8th! She was the first realtor we talked to, and the ONLY realtor we needed to talk to. YES, you have to go to her office beforehand to go over paperwork and sign some contracts, but that's a given, so you shouldn't be surprised.

Her team worked so hard to accommodate our needs. We had a tough situation, but they were able to find us an amazing apartment. We viewed 4-6 apartments on Monday the 10th, and we fell in love with the first apartment Or-Eli showed us on the Wednesday the 12th. I felt super comfortable discussing everything with Faye's team, they're down to Earth and very kind, they have your best interest at heart & do everything in their power to find an apartment that fits all of your needs.

Surprisingly enough, my boyfriend and I we're able to sign our lease a WEEK after we landed in NYC, if that's not amazing, I don't know what is.

Overall, I am so impressed and thankful for finding Faye on NakedApartments. I thought finding an apartment in NYC would be a nightmare, but they made everything quick and painless. Without Faye and her team, we wouldn't have our new home.

Thank you all so much!

Faye is absolutely amazing, and working with her was a pleasure. After many tiring hours perusing apartment websites and meeting brokers at various disappointing listings, I messaged Faye and she got back to me in a matter of minutes to set up a consultation. She and her team were incredibly professional, friendly, and accommodating, and I immediately felt at ease with them and that I could trust them to keep my best interests in mind while finding my room mates and I the best apartment that they could. She and her team worked together seamlessly to guide my room mates and I through the process of finding our first apartment, and were able to find us a beautiful apartment that we are extremely happy with. Faye works hard to establish a personal connection with her clients so that she can truly provide them with what they want, and it really pays off - we couldn't have done it without her!

Working with Faye was a pleasure. Faye was a standout: professional and ever so timely and concerned. Although in the end we rented from another company, simply an unexpected connection, Faye provided valuable guidance and genuine concern througout our search. As a business owner of 30 years, I think it special when I have the opportunity to benefit from a good person such as Faye.

Faye quickly and courteously saw my need for an apartment and was able to help my roommate and I find one that we LOVED in one showing.

Faye and her associates did their best to help my roommate and I navigate the application process and work with us on all aspects of our needs from financial to location.

I would highly recommend this agent to anyone seeking an apartment in NYC.

I was in desperate need of a new apartment. I contacted a few brokers and Faye immediately responded. She showed me several apartments within my price range and helped me narrow down the search to a specific neighborhood in Manhattan. We found my dream apartment and Faye immediately got to work with the paperwork. It was a very complicated process, with an enormous amount of paperwork to submit. Faye guided me through every step of the process with patience and complete support. She immediately responded to my questions via email and/or text. She also stayed late at the office awaiting last minute paperwork from my guarantor. I couldn't have succeeded in the apartment search without Faye. She and her team are friendly, positive, helpful, and incredibly efficient. I have already recommended her to friends and hope to use her services again when purchasing my home. I can't thank her enough for all she did.

Unprofessional and rude. We made an appointment and came in from out of state and she didn't have any properties ready to show us within the specifications we had asked for. She made us go to the office to sign useless paperwork before sending us out to see one apartment 3 hours after our schedule appointment time. She did not understand people who are in a rush and need to do things efficiently.

Faye is amazing. I was so impressed with how responsive she was. She is friendly, efficient, reliable and really cares about me finding the right place, for the right price. A lot of brokers I've contacted seemed like they didn't have time for me. Yes I want to rent from her!

Faye Samim's bio on Keller Williams NYC says real estate to her is "more than just numbers on paper; it's about people, no matter who it is." She absolutely demonstrated this while working together. Faye gave an enormous effort helping my roommate and I secure our first NYC apartment, and I can confidently say it would not have happened without her. She was prompt, professional and highly competent about the leasing process. I would encourage anyone to contact her about finding an apartment.

Working with Faye was wonderful. She was very professional and responsible from day one! I spent a lot of time searching for the perfect apartment, according to my needs, with Faye and her great team. They guided me through the somewhat exhausting process of finding and applying for an apartment in NYC. They made me feel like I was a part of their team, taken care of, and that they were going to do everything possible to help me find just what I needed... And they did! Their communication was always immediate and very helpful. I would, without question, work with them again if I was searching for an apartment in the future. If you are looking for an apartment in NYC, you should definitely work with Faye and her team. They will make it happen!
