We met Dorothy Schrager through a friend of ours whom she had helped find a wonderful apartment several years earlier and hired her as our real estate broker. Following forty years of living in a co-op loft in Manhattan, we sold our home and moved out of state when we retired. Recently, we decided to purchase a pied-a-terre to return to be closer to friends; family; our faith-based community; and the culture and resources easily accessible in the city.
We were uncertain about exactly what we were seeking: the neighborhood; type of apartment – co-op vs. condo; pre-war vs. more contemporary architectural features; and size – number of bedrooms and bathrooms; and necessary amenities for seniors, such as a full time doorman; elevator; and accessibility. Dorothy was very patient with our initial lack of clarity about all of these criteria, and helped us define our priorities – must haves vs nice to haves. We know we are now on track to find the perfect new home.
Throughout this search process, Dorothy researched apartments in which we had an interest, sharing her knowledge and perspective about the building; its management; features; and local neighborhoods. Her in-depth knowledge of the Manhattan real estate market is invaluable and she ensured that the available apartments she showed us aligned with our ever-changing priorities. Her professionalism and expertise were matched by her flexibility and kindness. As we continue our search, we are so grateful to have Dorothy as our guide to the next phase of our life in NYC.
When I chose Dorothy to be my broker for the sale of my apartment in NYC I was uncertain about my timing. Dorothy gave me what I thought was a very aggressive price due to market conditions. There were several brokers that I talked to but none that made me feel as comfortable as she did. She put a lot of time and effort into the sale and was able to achieve the price. Major kudos. I felt that she went above and beyond and I really felt like I was her only client. I was extremely pleased with all her efforts. There is no doubt I will use her again in a purchase or a sale of another property. Another purchase or sale of all my properties!!
My search for finding the perfect apartment was a long one, but I couldn’t have imagined it ending more perfectly. Thanks to the help, guidance, ease, thoughtfulness, and professionalism of Dorothy, I could not recommend her enough. She is a class act and someone you want in your corner when finding your next home.
My experience working with Dorothy Schrager was positive from beginning to end. Thanks to Dorothy’s market knowledge in New York City residential real estate, I was able to find my perfect pied-a-terre quickly.
Dorothy’s approach to understanding my needs was effortless and I would highly recommend Dorothy to prospective buyers in Manhattan. Dorothy is a top-rate person and professional!
Dorothy’s help was paramount to the success of me finding my new home. Her council was invaluable to me. She was patient and diligent. She lent her vast knowledge and experience to me – something that I needed. She’s personable and yet, she is the epitome of professionalism. She didn’t waste my time showing me things that weren’t what I had described when I had told her of my needs. Yet she exercised discretion and superior judgement in showing me some things that fit my needs that I had not considered. Without Dorothy’s guidance and help, I wouldn’t be living in my home. My home is perfect for me. I have a new appreciation for the phrase “There’s no place like home,” thanks to Dorothy.
Dorothy oversaw both the sale of one apartment and my purchase of another, and did so in a very competent and professional manner. She has a fine eye for detail and is very thorough and efficient in preparing for closings under tight deadlines.
I have been working with Dorothy since 2008, when I purchased my first apartment on the Upper East Side. 6 Years later when I moved Downtown, I worked with Dorothy to sell that same apartment. Dorothy is extremely professional and always a pleasure to work with. She guides you through the process and is always there when you need her advice. She has an upbeat personality and a tremendous work ethic. Dorothy is a dream broker to work with.

We have known Dorothy for over 30 years, and most recently, Dorothy has been our broker during the recent sale of our apartment.
Dorothy demonstrated an incredible work ethic, integrity, and extensive knowledge throughout the entire process. She completed the sale with finesse, determination, and efficiency. In addition, she was patient and hardworking, never hesitating to go that extra step to ensure a successful outcome.
Needless to say, my husband and I were extremely pleased with Dorothy’s expertise at all times throughout the course of the sale, and if the opportunity presented itself, we would not be uncertain for one second to use Dorothy as our broker again!
We have been working professionally with Dorothy Schrager since the purchase of our first apartment over 9 years ago. We have since used Dorothy to sell that apartment and purchase the apartment that we currently reside in. Our experience working with Dorothy has not only been a positive one but one with a great outcome. Dorothy is extremely professional, very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. She is accommodating and reliable and is always putting the interest of her client as the first priority. Dorothy is a wonderful broker, very professional and an expert at what she does.
We have recently returned to Manhattan to start renovations on our new apartment on East 57th St. which we purchased through one of your agents Dorothy Schrager. We would like to take a moment to tell you of our experience with Dorothy. We found the process of purchasing an apartment in the city like navigating through a mine field. When we stared dealing with Dorothy she was knowledgeable and resourceful. As time progressed however, she exhibited some even more important qualities, sensitivity, empathy and caring. She was always there with answers to our many questions, and making suggestions as how we should proceed in our quest to purchase an apartment. We were finally able to purchase the apartment that we wanted with much of the credit going to Dorothy. In our opinion Dorothy is not only a smart sophisticated agent, but a caring one as well. She is a true credit to your company.
