Annie Cion Gruenberger was absolutely fantastic to work with. She walked us through the entire process from preparing, decluttering, pricing, working with the building, lawyers all the way through to a terrific sale that we were thrilled with. She was always professional but I now truly feel she is a friend. I will recommend her to all my family and friends in the future.
It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Annie Cion Gruenberger, a real estate broker with Coldwell Banker/Warburg. Annie represented me in connection with my recent purchase of a co-op apartment on East 72nd Street. From the moment we first spoke, Annie made it her business to get to know me. She provided realistic feedback about the housing market and what I could expect to find at the price point I set forth. Another benefit of working with such an experienced broker was Annie’s almost encyclopedic familiarity with every building that I visited.
Annie is a hard-working, patient, and no-nonsense broker. She responded almost immediately to my every text, and she made herself or a colleague available at a moment’s notice. Annie respected my parameters and did not try to push me toward something outside of my comfort zone. She highlighted both benefits and disadvantages of the apartments that I viewed, which helped me to prioritize my wish-list. There was never a hint of impatience or fatigue. Perhaps most fortunate for me was that Annie’s broad network of connections allowed us pre-listing access to an apartment that turned out to be “the one.”
An added bonus of working with Annie is her delightful sense of humor and winning personality. I did not expect to have fun in the process of apartment-hunting, or to make a new friend, but both things happened. In short, I highly recommend Annie for her experience, professionalism, persistence and responsiveness.
I cannot recommend Annie and Kate highly enough. I was a first time home buyer with very little knowledge of how to navigate the extremely complex New York City real estate market.
They helped me every step of the way and introduced me to the best in the business; an excellent mortgage broker, an attorney specializing in coop and condo sales and wonderful connections to everyone from insurance providers to movers.
When it came time to submit an offer, Annie and Kate provided detailed guidance on bid price and specific components of my offer, using their expert knowledge of the market to help me make informed decisions. They ensured the package I presented to sellers was as attractive as possible while helping me work within the limits of my financial constraints, which is not an easy feat.
Annie and Kate were very responsive and always willing to answer my many questions. They supported me right up through the completion of the closing, continuing to guide me on best practices through the very end of the transaction.
Business aside, Annie and Kate also became dear friends throughout this process – they are both warm, approachable and pleasant and I am lucky to know them.
I am so lucky to have ended up with my dream home and I absolutely couldn’t have done it without this wonderful team.
I am so thankful for Annie’s help in making a speedy sale, and ensuring the walk-through was smooth sailing! Although I was initially very sad to sell my apartment-I am absolutely thrilled to be on the Upper West Side. I adore the neighborhood, the building, plus have a larger apartment! It is true… “Everything works out for the best!”
Annie sold our Upper East Side apartment last fall, and recently sold us another apartment on the Upper West Side.
In both transactions, Annie was an outstanding professional: knowledgeable, responsive and hard-working. She listened to our needs and desires and responded appropriately and timely. We were so pleased with both the buying and selling sides. Annie helped us meet a few challenges in both transactions…again, with great professionalism.
We will happily recommend Warburg, in general, and Annie, specifically, to family and friends for future transactions in New York real estate.
Annie took care of all details in our apartment search from the first minute until the very end. She set up many showings for us despite the low inventory of available apartments.
We highly recommend her if you are ready to buy in the city and we’ll also definitely call her again when we’re ready to upgrade.
It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Annie Gruenberger in the listing and sale of our coop. While we have purchased and sold a number of apartments in Manhattan over the last 15 years, we have never before encountered such a level of experience, professionalism and attention to detail while selling our past coop apartments.
Each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as screening of bid proposals, effective showings, proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations, final negotiations and assembling of the buyers coop board package. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a high degree of attention to detail and integrity.
Energetic, responsive, and super savvy about NYC real estate, Annie was our secret weapon when it came to selling our condo and buying a new home within a really tight timeframe. Each step of the way, she helped to inform our decisions, manage our expectations, and calm our nerves. Thanks to her expertise, we sold for a great price and found a new home that we love. She’ll be the first one we call if we move again.
It is a pleasure to recommend Annie as she consistently delivers satisfaction with every transaction. Fifteen years ago, I was a newly-married professional when I met Annie as her neighbor on the Upper East Side. Since then, Annie has advised my family through multiple sales and purchases as our space needs expanded. As her client, I truly appreciate Annie’s professionalism and integrity, and respect her deep knowledge of the market and excellence in negotiations. She has the experience, judgment and finesse to successfully navigate complications and resolve differences with diplomacy and fairness.
