“I want to wish you a happy holiday season and a very successful Year 2013. I also want to congratulate and thank you for your success in selling my Coop apartment. I have been in real estate for almost 30 years and you are the best broker that I have come across so far. You are energetic and always on the ball with showings and immediate feedback. Contrary to what all other brokers promise when they take a listing ageement, you actually did do what you said you would do. And finally, at the closing, that was a very nice gesture of yours to give both the buyer and seller each a gift basket. Guess who we will use on our next real estate deal.”

I contacted Mariana for recommendation of two friends, and as I was told, she was a great person to work with. As an international student, it can be more difficult to find an apartment in the city, specially if your guarantor doesn''t live in the country. She took the time to make the research for the best options for me, with landlords who would take me as a tenant under less complicated terms. With all the apartments that we saw, she shared her point of view, and helped me to compare based on her experience to make sure that I would get what I needed, and I would be happy with my decision. She was always on time, and had a positive and friendly attitude. After I moved in to my new apartment, she contacted me a couple of times to make sure everything was ok with my new place. Based on my experience, I recommend Mariana if you need a broker to find an apartment in New York.”

“Mariana is a wonderful broker. The right combination of hunting skills to find exactly what you want, stays in your price range and is completely upfront and direct about the apartment hunt and what you can expect. This is a rare combination in real estate in New York. And, she is hysterical, so apartment hunting is a pleasure with her. I adore her and would recommend her to anyone. She found me exactly what I was looking for and within the price range that I wanted.”

“Mariana worked with me to find an apartment for my daughter. She was amazing - customer-focused, was able to understand what we wanted, did her research very quickly, and found us a place in no time. I highly recommend her.”

“My fiance and I recently worked with Mariana Bekerman, who was exceptional to work with. She spent a lot of time identifying apartments that would fit our needs, and took our feedback into consideration when presenting further apartments. I have moved five times in the past five years, and she was the most effective, thorough broker I''ve worked with yet. We highly recommend her. ”

“Mariana Bekerman was helping me to ?nd a house to purchase. Despite the numerous demands I had and low price I could offer, she was able to ?nd me exactly what I wanted. She was very patient, friendly, professional and understanding. Even after spending many weekends looking at one house after another, she managed to stay positive, yet realistic. What really surprised me was that she was on my case even on her days off and after work hours. That''s when I realised that this person actually cares. She is very friendly, but when we would enter a house and meet a listing broker, she would act like a real professional- she was asking many questions I wouldn''t even think of asking, she was pointing out pros and cons of every house, she always tried to make me see the house not just as it is but as it will be when I move in. What I also appreciated about dealing with Mariana is that she recommended me very great people to help me with the documents and house inspection. We found the house of my dreams in less than a month. I am extremely happy and very grateful to Mariana! I keep on recommending her to all my friends. And the best thing is that we stayed friends even after the deal was done. She is the person you would want to trust your dreams to.”

“Mariana was really helpful in our process of finding the perfect apartment - she helped us find a listing that fit our budget, our location preferences and was really cool! We had met up with 7 or more brokers in this process, and she clearly did a great a great job - showed us good, no-nonsense listings, was nice about the whole process and not pushy unlike other brokers we met. Thanks so much, Mariana!”

I worked with Mariana for over 2 weeks in the search of my NYC apartment. The search process was very smooth. I was looking for a very specific apartment in terms of location, budget, interior presentation and furnished. We met once and she perfectly understood what I was looking for. Within the second meeting she had gathered 4/5 very good quality apartments and at the end I put an offer for one of them. I ended up renting it without any major problems. The whole communication was very smooth, meetings very fast and straight to the point and she is really good fun to work with. Mariana is a very experienced, professional and pleasant real estate broker to work with and I highly recommend her in your search for an apartment in the city!”

“I''d enthusiastically recommend Mariana to anyone looking for an apartment in NYC. I worked with her as a first-time renter, and since I was moving out of my family''s home (which was within commuting distance of my workplace), I was quite particular about my price point and the quality of the spaces I was looking at. Mariana completely understood what I was looking for right off the bat. Although she was honest about the fact that my requirements might make my search a little more limited, she also managed to make me feel confident about finding something that fit my needs. Mariana was also great about following up, maximizing my time, and being flexible with my schedule and my opinions--which changed a couple of times even as we were looking! A pet peeve of mine is when a broker tries to pressure you into making a decision before you''re ready--something Mariana never did. Above all, she was friendly, courteous, and tenacious, and I felt confident that she was looking out for me.”
