Testimonial from M. Orenzow

Claire, I wanted to thank you and Angela for all of your hard work and finally bringing my sale to fruition. I appreciate the superb communication, prompt responses and compassion you have shown throughout this ordeal. Most of all, I am going to miss working with 2 very fine and knowledgeable people. I cannot thank you enough. Please post this on your website as you both deserve all of the credit for making this happen. I would highly recommend your services to anyone in the market looking to buy or sell.

Testimonial from Andrew G

Claire is really the best agent I have ever worked with, renting or buying. She has met or exceeded our expectations every time on the four properties she has bought and sold and rented for us over the past 5 years.

Testimonal from Dr. Louise Buck

Many thanks for your skillful assistance throughout the whole sale process of my apartment,  from the sale through the placement of funds in my bank.  I appreciate your personal warmth as well. My best to you.

Testimonial from Mick Furlong

I was first introduced to Claire when I moved to New York from Ireland in 2004. She gave me great insight in to the real estate market in New York. Some might find the thoughts of searching for a home in a city as large as New York daunting, but having a realtor like Claire to guide you takes away all the surprises and makes it a fun experience. She takes great pride in her job and will always goes above and beyond to find the property that meets all of your needs and expectations. Claire is not the type of realtor who is looking to get a quick sale and move on, she is looking to build a great relationship with all her clients. I am proud to say that I can still call on Claire for anything 10 years later and view her as a great friend. I have recommended Claire to many of my friends and they all have had great experiences and speak very highly of her. When I had to relocate to Boston with my family in late 2012, I could think of no one better than Claire to bring my lovely apartment to the market. She gave it her personal touch and got it sold a great price. I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire to any prospective buyers or sellers.

Testimonial from Lucy G. Feller

It is so easy for me to recommend Claire Groom as a Complete Broker. not only did she sell my 15 room Park Avenue apartment where I had lived for 44 years, but she showed me the perfect downsized  apartment, where I am now happily ensconced.

A pleasure to work with, she goes beyond the responsibilities of a New York Realtor. Whatever your needs for moving, Claire is there with the answer and her physical help.

Moving at best is difficult, but with Claire it almost makes it a pleasure.

Testimonial from Barbara Fields

Claire is the best thing that’s happened to me in a very long time. She spent many days researching the right rental apartment for me which is not her specialty. Did I ever make the right decision going with her.She was so dedicated in helping me find the right place in her preparations that I found my dream apartment in one day of searching.All this with a smile and warmth unexpected. The consequence is I have formed a strong bond with such a lovely and caring person.

Testimonial from Paula Carleton Evans

I am happy to state that from the beginning of my experience working with Claire, I found her to be highly informed, attentive to my interests, preferences, and methods and that she brought an enormous amount of insight into the complex dynamics of my sale and then purchase. Claire was was reliable to a T and always was a pleasure to work with.

I do not intend to move from this home for a long time, but should it happen, without hesitation I would call Claire instantly. I will always fervently recommend her to everyone I know in need of a broker.

Testimonial from Margot Green

Claire Groome was the agent who sold my late partner’s apartment and then found one for me. She not only is a superb professional agent but she has the ability to make the people involved feel so much better while involved in the onerous task of moving.

Claire knows how to zone in on what people really want and not to subject them to seeing far more apartments than are needed.
Even after the deal is complete Claire remains in the picture becoming friends with her clients and seeing that all goes smoothly.
I highly recommend her as the best agent I have ever worked with.

Testimonial from Marcia Bell

I hired Claire to sell my NYC apartment. She gave me great advice, conducted several open houses, and my apartment sold in only 4 weeks! Claire is an enthusiastic and extremely competent residential real estate sales professional. I admire her business and staging skills coupled with her candor and kindness. Claire knows how to sell an apartment! She is a very valuable asset when selling your apartment or home. I highly recommend Claire!

Testimonial from Claudia Shaum

Claire loves what she does, and it shows in her work. Not only is she a real expert – she knows the New York real estate market cold – but she puts so much thought and personal attention into it, that it sets her apart. She takes the time to get to know her clients and brings her own special touch to everything she does.

Testimonial from Elyssa Greenberg

As a first time homeowner, Claire guided me through the rigorous buying process using her extensive knowledge of the New York City Real Estate scene. She went above and beyond her call of duty to assist me through the entire process from finding a neighborhood to sitting at the closing with me. Her attention to the details of the deal were great; however, having someone that I could trust helped make the experience a less stressful experience. I know the next time I need to hire a broker, I will not look any further!

Testimonial from Daniel Shlufman

I have worked with Claire on a number of residential real estate purchases over the past several years. She has always been dedicated to her clients as well as to the process itself. She is hardworking, diligent, honest and pleasant. She knows what needs to be done to close a transaction quickly and efficiently. And, she is willing to assist in every way that she can to make this happen. Claire is a real professional who is there for her clients every step of the way.

Testimonial from Amy Magdalin

Claire is one of the most hard working people I’ve ever met. She separates herself apart from the others by genuinely caring about her clients and their needs. She has an incredible, detailed knowledge of the industry and shares her knowledge freely. I highly recommend Claire as a broker. I wouldn’t consider entering into my next real estate deal without Claire at my side!

Testimonial from Jon Steckler

The moment one meets Claire for the first time, you know you are dealing with someone special. Claire is attentive, a true professional and she has a great sense of humor. Whether you are a buyer, a seller or an agent looking to refer to Claire, you couldn’t choose anyone better!

Testimonial from Michael Hines

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Claire for several years. Claire has always demonstrated tremedous work ethic, honesty and integrity in a world filled with a lack of it. Tenacious, great listening and someone who understands you, your needs and then demonstrates that in he work effort. I would highly recommend her!
