We would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in downtown Manhattan.
— Tim Forbes, Seller of 60 West 11th Street, COO, Forbes Magazine

Sara, Paul, and their team were consummate professionals whose advice helped us price, market, and close on our property at a price that we were comfortable with. They helped to soothe nerves and to calm emotions though a complex negotiation. We would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home downtown.

If you are looking to sell your townhouse... look no further. Paul, Sara and their team not only demonstrated their unparalleled understanding of the downtown townhouse market, but used their knowledge, networks and know how to bring in multiple offers and ultimately sell our property. They were at our side every step of the way, and ensured we had a smooth and timely closing, thanks to their attention to detail, patience and dedication. A big thank you to a deserving and formidable team!
— Andrew Bares
Sara and Paul demand the best of others, as they do of themselves. They are both people of great integrity, as well as of great humor and savvy and curiosity; we’ve always enjoyed our time with them and now think of them as friends. We have already recommended them to others since working with them—they sold our neighbor’s apartment in record time for above asking — and would gladly do so again.
— Ellen Levy & Greg Horowitz, Sellers
Sara is more of a real estate priestess than a real estate broker. It is quite moving to see the pains she takes to care for all individuals involved, and the warrior-like tenacity that she is capable of when fighting for what she believes in. I know without a doubt that whoever is fortunate enough to work with Sara Gelbard, either buying or selling a property, has done something very right!
— Victoria Emory, Renter
Sara and her team were true professionals whose advice helped to sell the property on a timely basis, at a price that we were comfortable with. When the buyer was seeking comfort in the knowledge that the building was fairly priced, Sara and her team responded with accurate comparables that were intrinsic to ultimately clinching the deal.

Selling a house that you’ve lived in for over 30 years is a very emotional experience. I have to say, dealing with Sara Gelbard has made it a pleasure. She is wonderful and I loved her on sight. She is ethical and smart, and I trust her implicitly. I can’t imagine what this would be like without her.

Sara knows the Village incredibly well, not just street by street, but block by block, and often house by house.

Before we went to see a house, she could tell me about the history of a block, the street noise, the back yards; in a number of instances she had worked with my prospective neighbors, or could tell me what a house looked like before its current renovation.

From the beginning I indicated to Paul that I would be an “absentee seller” since I no longer lived in New York. Not only was he enthusiastic about the apartment, but he also assured me that he would handle everything that I couldn’t. I feel that he went above what he was required to do. Throughout the period he constantly kept in touch updating me about any developments or concerns. Paul always follows up on everything — in short, a true professional.
— — Richard Hefter, Seller
Even though I have seen you since the sale and and we have kept in touch weekly if not daily, I have felt the need put to pen to paper, because Sara you deserve the extra effort from Mick and I to tell you how much we appreciate all the special care and attention, we know you gave to us.
— — Ann and Mick Jones, Buyers
We cannot thank you enough for putting your business and personal skills to work for us. We count you as a friend. It will be our pleasure to recommend you to other friends and acquaintances who might be looking for an apartment in New York.
— — Jeff and Peggy Padnos, Buyers
You were exceptionally professional, hardworking, and honest. Your advice always proved to be appropriate, reflecting your experience and knowledge about current market conditions. What I appreciate the most is that you showed by your actions that you had our best interests at heart. That, together with your being a skillful negotiator, resulted in a fantastic deal for us!

— — Katie Townsend, Buyer
You were able to work with my limited schedule, take into account what I thought I wanted, and help me determine what I really wanted!

After I put money down on a property, you didn’t disappear. You still emailed to check on how things were going. If I had a question, you researched it and contacted the appropriate people to get me an answer. Thank you!
