Rashida Harris

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Rashida "Shida" Harris is a native New Yorker with an extraordinary sense of the Manhattan real estate market. She is a self proclaimed "go getter". To her, real estate isn't work, it's a passion.

She aims to improve everyday and takes the extra steps to ensure her clients needs are met. Shida's desire to succeed has followed her through life and she attributes her success to her parents, both of whom are teachers (hence the highly organized work approach and extreme attention to detail).

Shida graduated with a Bachelors degree in Communications from the University at Albany, and prior to entering real estate, she enjoyed a successful ten year career in the modeling industry. Pounding the pavement 5 days a week on castings was a great way for her to master the neighborhoods of Manhattan.
All of her experiences and her pumped up positive outlook have all contributed to becoming a confident and loyal realtor.

When she actually stops working and takes what she likes to call "Shidatime", she enjoys museums, live music, candle making, cardio kickboxing, replicating recipes she saw on the Food channel (she makes a killer grilled cheese sandwich!!!), and frequents the New York Philharmonic.

Why select Shida as your real estate agent?
She genuinely listens to her clients and will work tirelessly on your behalf. She takes pride in being an honest, enthusiastic and knowledgeable professional.

Shida is looking forward to working with you and devoting her efforts to your real estate goals.

I was referred to Rashida Harris by a friend of mine, and I am incredibly glad that I used her as my broker. Not only is Shida very professional, she also is extremely personable. Looking for an apartment (particularly if this is your first ever apartment hunt and if you''re from out of town) can be a very stressful, anxious, and daunting process, but Shida made it both easy and fun.

I just graduated from college, and I am originally from Houston, Texas. Even though I interned in the city the summer before I graduated, I do not consider myself to have sufficient knowledge of the city (let alone its real estate market) to have done this alone. After explaining my situation to Shida as well as my living preferences, we sat down and compiled a list of locations that I may be interested in together. Before meeting her, I was afraid that I was walking into a scam or a service that was going to charge me considerably above my budget; however, Shida was completely ethical. She never pushed me to consider anything out of my price range, and she never tried to show me something in an area that I would be uncomfortable living in based on my preferences.

On top of everything working with Shida not only feels collaborative, but also comfortable. Shida will make you feel as if you''ve known her your entire life. While you''re walking the streets of New York looking for your new home, you will feel like you are walking with a sister, or cousin, or daughter, who is very knowledgeable about her job as well as the NYC real estate market and who is personally concerned for and invested in your happiness and comfort.

I really feel as if I made a friend in Rashida Harris. I definitely plan on using her again the next time I need to go looking for apartments. I would recommend her to anyone, and I will be recommending her to everyone I know who is looking for an apartment in the City.

My agent was Rashida Harris. Even tho we decided not to go thru with apt rental, I have to say that Rashida provided outstanding service and was helpful in every sense of the word. It was a pleasure to deal with her as she brought enthusiasm and much knowledge to our search Also, she was very customer focused and went out of her way to comply with whatever request I had.
On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being highest, I would rate her a 10.

Rashida Harris was one of the most helpful people I ever met! She had good information on hand and really knew what she was doing! ( The first day all the places she showed me I loved and that was only the first day. ) Above all she is a wonderful and bright person.
If you want to find something quick she''s the girl to go to, as she really senses what you looking for!

I had the pleasure to have Shida Harris as my agent. She understood what I was looking for, did initial screening before showing me the apartments and was very patient with me (and believe me that is not easy).

Rashida Harris did a fantastic job - she was highly responsive, a great listener in terms of our preferences, and went and scoped out places in advance so that we wouldn''t waste time on places that weren''t a good match. Highly recommended.

Rashida Harris was a great agent to work with. She was attentive, patient, and organized. I like that she continually asked for feedback in order to refine her search for good potential apartments for me. I was also impressed with her timely follow up and how much useful info she knew about the neighborhoods I was considering. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.

Rashida Harris was our broker when we relocated to Manhattan. She set up a ton of appointments for the days I was to be in town to find a place and after a long day of hunting, we found the perfect place! Everything she showed me met the criteria we were looking for and we were able to choose a place super quick and apply easily and painlessly. She provided a list of everything we needed ahead of time so we were prepared to apply immediately. Shida had great follow up, is so friendly and easy to get along with. She made our move to NYC easy and enjoyable. We are now settled into our beautiful and perfect Hell''s Kitchen apartment and couldn''t be happier! I have already passed on her name to friends moving to the city.

This is a review for Rashida Harris- a most spectacular person and great agent!

She was always on time, friendly and helpful. She never rushed us as we looked at lots of places. She picked out the best for us for the best price.

Unfortunately, our group disbanded before we could find what we needed.
But if anyone ever asks me about a realtor and an agent, I will always tell them about the fabulous Rashida.
