Elena Andersen

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Elena Andersen‘s success is due in large part to her commitment to going the extra mile, not only to meet her clients’ expectations, but to exceed them. While the ultimate goal is a successful transaction, Elena’s warm approach sets the tone.

Elena works hard to support her clients in providing whatever they need along the way, from helping to clarify their needs to bringing the deal to a close. And with so many variables involved in completing a transaction, Elena orchestrates all details meticulously to guarantee smooth sailing.

Buying and selling one’s home are also exciting and emotional experiences. Elena understands that in addition to diligence and hard work, a large dose of empathy and patience is required.

Prior to entering real estate, Elena managed high-level corporate meetings and events for Fortune 100 companies, where she traveled to such far-flung locations as Singapore and Dubai. Her business acumen, listening skills, diplomacy and negotiating savvy honed during this time are put to good use for her real estate clients.

Elena is a born and bred New Yorker. A graduate of SUNY at Stony Brook with a BA is Psychology, she currently resides on the Upper West Side. Aside from real estate, Elena enjoys travel, baking, painting and taking her puggle, Lola, for walks in the Central Park and Riverside Park.

With Elena Andersen’s professional skills, selling our Washington Heights 2 bedroom 2 bath co-op was a breeze. Because of her diligence and attention to detail, we were given a firm cash offer within three days at our asking price.

I was extremely fortunate to have had Elena Andersen as my real estate agent. In March of 2014 I decided to sell my one bedroom apartment in Manhattan in order to downsize to a studio. Elena took charge as soon as we discussed my priorities, explaining what the procedures would be for the sale of the apartment and for the purchase of a new one. She answered all of my questions and made many good suggestions to put my mind at ease. With Elena’s diligent work, everything went extremely well. Once the apartment went on the market, it sold within a week, and she handled the necessary documents of sale with the same efficiency, so that the closing was made before the end of May. Meanwhile, Elena was extremely helpful in assisting me in finding a suitable studio for which she negotiated a sale price agreeable to both parties involved. The entire sale and purchase of both apartments was completed so that I was able to move into my new apartment in the first week of June. I am a very happy client who was in the excellent hands of an agent who took the time and effort to make the right things happen.

Looking to move back to New York City, I don’t think I was prepared for the stress of trying to find an apartment in a short period of time. Thank goodness for Elena! She helped me through the hectic process and diligently found property after property for my perusal until we found the exact right living space for me. I’ve been living there for two years now, and I can’t help but remember that it was through Elena’s hard work (and sunny personality!) that I came to be in the perfect home. She is an absolute catch, and would be able to guide anyone through the process of finding the right fit.

“I had been looking on and off for an apartment for about a year with and with out an agent when a friend of mine suggested that I call a real estate agent that she knew, Elena Andersen. Elena was fun to work with, easy going, professional, down to earth and really on my side. She worked hard to resolve the issues that come with any sale and the ones that don’t. Please choose Elena Andersen as a real estate agent it will make the process so much easier.

I've worked with Elena twice, both as a buyer and as a seller, and both times I felt her work was excellent. As a buyer, she quickly picked up on what I was looking for in a home, and I trusted her to look at apartments without me there to give me the report on whether or not it was the right fit. We quickly found a great apartment, and as a first time buyer, Elena was very helpful in guiding me through the co-op process and paperwork.

As a seller, Elena arranged for our photographer, and guided me through cleaning up the space for viewers and photos. She set a realistic sale price, and didn't try to inflate our apartment beyond reasonable expectation, dragging out the sale.

Our experience has been very positive, and I highly recommend her as an agent.

Elena Andersen could tell you how I like my coffee! And thank goodness she's so easy to work with, because we spent many hours together. First, Elena helped my husband and me find an apartment in Midtown. Next, she helped our son find a condo in Chelsea.

I would recommend Elena highly. She listens to you, is organized, positive, and thorough. She is the ultimate professional and such a delight to be around. This comes in handy when you are looking at home after home -- and ordering a few coffees along the way!
