"Danielle was the bridge we needed when renting out our condo from across the country. She was always available, even with the time difference. She updated us daily, and managed our board approval process with patience and determination. She was knowledgeable about the market, offering guidance while also giving us space to make final decisions about pricing, timing and apartment updates. Within 2 weeks she found us the tenant that matched our ideal profile and we couldn't be happier."
– S. Cileli, Landlord
"When Danielle approached us about listing our property, we had already received an opinion of price from another agent who had warned us not to expect to sell it for more than we had paid, even after two years of ownership. Having purchased in an HDFC building, while attempting to sell at the end of two years of COVID, our expectations were not high, but we were motivated to sell so our family could relocate outside of NY. Danielle's enthusiasm and positivity was infectious and relieving. She set the list price $80K above our purchase price and moved quickly, discretely and decisively. She provided guidance regarding what the HDFC allowed for, and prioritized the steps to prepare our home for market. She required only two open houses before receiving a full-ask offer from a qualified buyer -- a huge help to a family with two small children who had to tidy and vacate to accommodate showings. She did more than her share of the work to get the buyer’s board package in order, and sold our home at a hefty profit in very short order. As we said upon closing, Danielle 'came in like a lion and went out like a lamb.' We recommend Danielle without reservation, and wish you the same success we had in selling your NYC home."
– E Ahmad & E Singleton, Sellers
"Finding the perfect apartment in New York is never easy, but looking from 1,500 miles away presents even more challenges. After several months of frustrating trips to see properties that didn’t meet our needs, we decided it was time to change agents. Luckily, we met Danielle. Danielle previewed many apartments in advance, discovering any flaws and sparing us fruitless visits. She managed to put together a list of strong candidates, including one not really ready for showings- the one we bought! Danielle handled the negotiations with the seller calmly and professionally. I think both sides of the transaction were happy with the result. Although other agents tried to discourage us from looking at co-ops and recommended condos instead, Danielle had no bias either way. After going through the process I see why some agents prefer not to have to go through the Board application. It’s a lot of work for the realtor! Throughout the process Danielle gave us advice and guidance, drawing on her considerable experience to make the Board application simple for us. There was never a negative feeling about it, which removed all the potential stress. It was a great pleasure to work with Danielle and I recommend her without reservations."
– Charlotte Ording, Buyer
"As an out-of-state buyer, we relied on Danielle completely to represent every aspect of our Manhattan purchase. She handled our house hunt, negotiation, and inspection as if it were her own purchase. She held our hands all the way to the closing, and produced a successful end result. Her savvy, thoroughness, and professionalism make her a true stand-out. We would recommend Danielle with confidence and would use her again!"
– Michelle B, Buyer
“Danielle guided me through the co-op buying process and was an invaluable ally and advocate from start to finish. As a first-time home buyer, I appreciated how responsive, forthright, and proactive she is. I will happily recommend her to friends and now consider her a friend as well!”
– Alex O, Buyer
“We partnered with Danielle because a close friend introduced her as someone we could trust in navigating us through a competitive NYC marketplace, in the midst of the pandemic. She quickly became attuned to our taste, needs, and budget. Danielle was patient with both the market and our goals. She kept all parties organized, at-ease and engaged throughout a demanding, and sometimes daunting, condo approval process. You can’t go wrong with Danielle if you want a sincere, practical and efficient agent!
– Carol C, Buyer
"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! That’s certainly what Danielle helped my wife and I do over the past four years. Initially, we worked with Danielle to purchase our condo in Brooklyn which we planned to live in. That is, until I got a last-minute job offer in Atlanta that was too good to pass up. Danielle helped us through the purchase and immediately assisted us in laying out a plan to convert the property into a rental. Since then, we’ve turned to Danielle to assist us with finding new tenants when the situation has called for it. Danielle is always available and is one of the most knowledgeable agents in New York City. Simply put, Danielle rocks!”
– Alex K, Buyer / Landlord
“Working with Danielle is an absolute pleasure, taking the stress and anxiety out of putting your home on the market. Throughout the process Danielle has been a calm, knowledgeable presence - proactive and strategic - presenting my home in a way that beat all my expectations for a speedy rental. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She took the guesswork and stress out of a process that can appear overwhelming. In the end, I had a wonderful experience and rented my home at least two months ahead of schedule.”
– Regina P, Landlord
"We wholeheartedly recommend Danielle for your real estate needs. She is incredibly competent, organized and knowledgeable, and went above and beyond in ensuring our apartment was in the best shape possible ahead of listing. Her diligence and attention to detail is underscored by her professionalism for us and our future tenants. She works with you, clearly defining market needs and expectations and is readily available with guidance, updates and suggestions to ensure a successful outcome. We are really grateful to have had her as a partner in our most recent listing."
– Rosalyn & Clif K, Landlords
“Danielle Berger helped us increase the value of our rental, found the perfect tenants and delivered a signed lease in only a couple of weeks. Amazing. She made several suggestions of improvements. Many were easy and inexpensive, but added big value. Wow! Great ideas that had never occurred to us. Danielle is smart, efficient, organized, a good listener and really knows her stuff. My husband, a photographer, and I, a marketing professional, were thrilled with our photos and ads. And she continues to keep us apprised of changes in the market long after our new tenants were placed. Thank you, Danielle!”
– Susan R, Landlord
“We can’t say enough great things about working with Danielle! With extremely tight time and price constraints, and an extensive board approval process, Danielle met our needs with professionalism and grace. Her creativity, diligence and tenacity paid off with 5 qualified applicants from just one open house! Danielle is a forward thinker and a natural problem solver who prepared us to be savvy first-time landlords. Her enthusiasm and passion for this business is contagious, turning a stressful situation into carefree fun! We will definitely utilize her for all of our real estate needs. You should too!”
– Lillian T and David D, Landlords
"I have nothing but good things to say about Danielle Berger and the CORE team! I had previously had a bad experience looking for an apartment, with pushy and passive aggressive agents, so going into this I was a little skeptical. Meeting Danielle was like a breath of fresh air – she wasn’t pushy, was super professional and just a really lovely lady. Danielle was very responsive to my initial enquiry. The whole process, from viewing to signing, was so quick and painless. Danielle was so helpful from beginning to end. In summary – I LOVE my new apartment! Overall, 10 out of 10 and I have already recommended her and CORE to my friends."
– Kellie S, Tenant
"Thanks to Danielle, my apartment application process was stress-free. She helped me complete the large amount of paperwork required by the building, and made herself available at all hours to ensure that I was on track and clear about what was needed. Thank you, Danielle, for finding me the perfect apartment and helping through every step! I will definitely be using Danielle in the future and would highly recommend her to anyone looking!"
