Words from our clients

“Hank Orenstein is the ideal real estate agent. He is dependable, thorough, deeply knowledgeable, and extremely hard-working. Hank's knowledge of New York City and its real estate market is unparalleled. Most importantly, it was clear that he had ONLY my best interest at heart. In the end, Hank sold my apartment in for 30% more than I'd paid for it just three years prior.

My search for a new home was a beautiful puzzle resolved piece by piece Hank Orenstein. One day he brought me to Harlem, an area unfamiliar to me even after living in New York for 32 years. Like a professor of history, he invited me to retrace each step of this fabled enclave, recounting all the while the legends and changing fortunes of each area. I was intrigued, charmed and finally won over.
