Saffeya Hinkson

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Saffeya has always had a visual mind, first helping her father, a local draughtsman, by drawing floorplans for residential homes when she was only 12 years old. Her ability to quickly grasp what her clients need conceptually and translate that into something tangible is invaluable. She is able to provide them with insight into a prospective home or their current one that goes beyond a Google search.

Saffeya builds lasting relationships with her clients that is formed through her trustworthiness and reliability. She invests herself in each transaction, not as a salesperson, but as if it were her own real estate journey.

Before transitioning to real estate, Saffeya received a BS in Biology and an MBA in Healthcare Management and pursued nursing. Her professionalism, soothing demeanor and personable approach to any situation no matter how difficult it may be, sets her clients at ease.

When not working, Saffeya can be found playing piano, running and reading -- she is a fan of Game of Thrones. She currently specializes in leasing (long and short-term) and sales in the Upper West Side, Upper East Side, East Village and Astoria.

I met Ms. Hinkson through a posting on Spare Room for a unit in the East Village. Up until that point I had avoided interacting with brokers due to negative preconceptions I had. Ms. Hinkson was knowledgeable, friendly and answered all the questions I had regarding the property. When I voiced my concerns about the size she was understanding and went above and beyond by looking into other opportunities for me in Manhattan that would work for my criteria.

She inspired confidence and I wish I had engaged with her earlier in my search process as I feel we could have worked together to get the best fit. Despite not getting a property with her I wanted to call her out for her motivation, knowledge and genuine interest in helping clients. I will look to work with her in the future and recommend her to others.
