I was referred to Ann by a colleague so already I knew that she is someone I can rely on.
From the first day I met Ann, I realized she is a well-organized and detailed orientated person. Ann always researched ahead and showed up prepared and punctual. She tailored to my needs and offered her professional opinions when called for. When I had questions or doubts regarding the building or the sales, she would work tirelessly to find out all the necessary information, and does not stop until she gets me the answers.
We started looking in May and I closed in Sept. She guided me the entire way, from making appointments to see places, to making an offer, to obtaining mortgage, to board approval and lastly to closing. She was there for me every step. Without her, I certainly could not accomplish it in less than 5 months, especially in competitive market like NYC where demands are high and Co-op boards are strenuous.
I would recommend Ann to my friends and family without hesitation. And I hope you will get to work with wonderful agent Ann Takahashi as well!

Ann Takahashi found the apartment of my dreams. With her expertise we were able to update my old apartment with fresh paint, new tiles and appliances so that it was “picture perfect.” for marketing. Thus, she was able to find a qualified buyer who paid our full asking price. Ann was always available to answer my questions and worked tirelessly on my behalf. She is reliable, helpful and competent. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell an apartment.

Ann Takahashi helped us streamline our options which were the West Village and the Financial District of Downtown NYC.
She has a quick and precise sense of what we were looking for and kept in close contact only offering to show us properties that suited our needs. Needless to say, we are busy New Yorkers and didn''t have a whole lot of time to look at superfluous places that were not in our price range or out of our desired neighborhoods.
We found our perfect West Village apartment with her. We closed in record time, under three months. Unheard of in the sellers market of 2013.
I can''t imagine a smoother transaction that Ann helped facilitate as our broker. We would gladly recommend her to any of our friends and hope to do business with her again.
We love our place! Thank you Ann.

"We enjoyed working with Ann Takahashi. Her professionalism was present throughout our selling process: pricing the property correctly, creating a great fact sheet, following up with us after each open house, and great "hand-holding" in this tough market. From start to finish, Ann did a great job."

“My wife and I met Ann Takahashi and asked her to act as our real estate broker in our quest to find an apartment in Manhattan. Ann is one of a kind- she is the embodiment of what you would want in a real estate broker. She displayed a unique combination of honesty, perseverance and persistence.
Ann has complete knowledge of real estate documents and is a tremendous asset when compiling board of directors package that are required before board interviews. Ann's skill as a negotiator and mediator are profound. Because of her wonderful personality we feel sincerely blessed to have met Ann and would be privileged to be her friend.”
"Ann has something few other agents have -- real people skills. She had a keen understanding of the kind of living space I was looking for and was always responsive. Even though she had other clients, she always made me feel as though I was her only client. I would definitely recommend her to others."
"We are very pleased with Ann Takahashi's assistance in finding our ideal apartment. She demonstrated her competence and service throughout the process. She is very client-oriented and efficient. After understanding our requirements, she conducted an extensive research and identified possible options for us. While it was our first experience to buy an apartment, she explained everything that we needed to know. She meticulously checked our papers and documents in order to make sure that they match and
make sense. We were also impressed by her persistent follow-up with the related institutions to make sure that the paper process was in order. Moreover, she gave us adequate advice and coaching about how to go to the Board meeting. Without her assistance, we would not have found such an ideal apartment. We will highly recommend Ann to anyone who is interested in buying an apartment."

I would highly recommend her to anyone.”

“Ann Takahashi was invaluable in helping me find and buy my first apartment. Ann made the process easy and stress free, and was always available to help answer questions, no matter how rudimentary. And most importantly, she listened to my needs; she quickly understood what I was searching for, and with her diligence and hard work, I found the perfect home within just one week of looking.”
