To Whom It May Concern:

I write to highly recommend Eileen Foy as a broker and advisor for real estate transactions.

I first met Eileen a year of having my apartment in Manhattan on the market with no tangible progress. Our previous broker advised us to lower the price two times. Finally, the doorman advised me to work with Eileen, and that was the best real estate advice I ever received. Eileen visited the property and immediately recognized its value. She had an offer on the property within thirty days!Eileen has a unique understanding of the New York City housing market. Beyond her experience, she perceives value and potential in property and has an appreciation for the owner’s needs. Honestly, in the forty years that I have bought and sold residential property, I have never encountered an agent as forthright, knowledgeable and downright speedy as Eileen Foy.

I hope your professional experience with Eileen turns out as exceptional as mine.

Dear Eileen,

I am writing to congratulate you and Douglas Elliman Real Estate on the sale of my apartment on Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Your recommendation to stage our apartment paid off as our apartment sold for $300,000.00 more than we anticipated. Your kind, personal attention to detail and experience as our Broker is an asset to Douglas Elliman Real Estate and I would highly recommend you and your firm to any future potential clients.

Dear Eileen,

It has now been about a month since we gave you the listing on 39 E 29th Street, Unit 6D. During our discussions prior to the listing I knew you were the correct person. You were prompt, courteous and had a fantastic knowledge of the New York City market.

I did interview two other people who I thought were mediocre however none of these people came across like you. Not one even followed up when they said they were going to visit 7D on the holiday weekend. It was when I saw that you went beyond the call of duty and visited 7D on the holiday weekend and that evening sat down to send me your thoughts was when I knew we need to list the condo with you.

Then you sent me the presentation and it was even better than I could possibly expect.

Then the showing and It took minimal time (about 4 days) for you to get a buyer and sign the contract. You are an amazing young lady. If I even considered giving the listing to someone else, I should have been shot.

You know, Eileen, the two real estate reps who visited in between our initial visit not only didn’t follow up but were from very good organizations. They told me to be careful of Douglas Elliman as they were too big and really didn’t do the marketing that their firms did. Being that I have been a CEO of a large oil & gas company I knew that a company is only as good as the people within it and you my friend are a real WINNER.

If people would like to call me to check the authenticity of this letter, please tell them to contact me at my mobile phone number 480-586-5178.

Congratulations on an outstanding effort.

Warmest regards,

To Whom It May Concern,

I highly recommend Eileen Foy if you are considering selling a townhouse or an apartment in New York City.

I hired Eileen in the fall of 2010 to sell my townhouse in Greenwich Village. Eileen was savvy and knowledgeable about the downtown market and was an expert on the townhouse market. She knew townhouse sale and had physically seen almost every house on the market. Based on this expertise, she priced my property exactly right… low enough so as to not deter potential buyers, high enough to leave room for a negotiation to satisfy the buyer.

Eileen kept me completely informed throughout the sales process. She qualified every prospective purchaser prior to scheduling appointments. She told me the names and profile of potential purchasers who were viewing my home. Eileen was able to identify a buyer who was qualified to purchase within six weeks of listing my townhouse. My townhouse sold for the highest price at the time for a single family townhouse in Greenwich Village that year.

Eileen was careful and meticulous about having the best photographer photograph the house and had him revisit to take more photos so the pictures on the website looked beautiful. All of the marketing materials and floor plans were professionally done.

Eileen is a professional, experienced, and trustworthy. She has a strong work ethic and is incredibly responsive. I have no hesitation in recommending Eileen to prospective clients. I recommend her to my friends and colleagues

Eileen - I have been so busy the past few days and was out of town - that I did not get a moment until just now to thank you for all of your help with the 65th street house. I have dealt with many brokers throughout the past few years but none with your patience, professionalism, and willingness to go way above and beyond the call of duty. I am grateful for everything that you did to make this possible. Thank you!


Dear Eileen,

I want to thank you so much for selling my apartment on 73rd Street. I continue to share your information with friends in New York who are looking to buy or sell. I was so appreciative of how you stayed calm while the deal finally closed.

I really appreciate the efforts and kindness you showed me last year. I wish you a wonderful summer and hope you continue to close many deals.

Thank You Eileen. We are forever grateful for your professionalism and dedication to selling our loft. It was not an easy task. You guided us through a very trying process – we had been listed with another agent for well over a year and were exhausted from the process. Fortunately, we were referred to you and with your keen knowledge of the current market conditions, you changed the Marketing Strategy and we sold the Loft within three months, at close to asking price. We truly appreciate your knowledge of the New York Market. It made all the difference and enabled us to go onto the next chapter in our lives. We highly recommend you to all our New York friends.

My wife, Mabel, and I have a 1000 square feet Junior Four in immaculate condition. The apartment is in a full service building with open northern and southern exposures on the upper eastside. We marketed it at a fair price and thought that in this market, it would be easy to sell. We were wrong. We paid for a featured Street Easy listing, took photos and printed up fliers. After 7 weeks of countless open houses and private showings, without discernable results, my wife interviewed numerous listing agents. Even with several agents that had multiple sales in our building. Eileen Foy actually attended one of our earlier open houses and struck up a rapport with us. She impressed us immediately and is personable, extremely knowledgeable, experienced and focused. Even though she has multi-million dollar listings, her attention to us and our apartment was incomparable. We signed an agreement on Tuesday, she arranged for a professional photographer to shoot our apartment on Wednesday. By Thursday, she had our apartment, with the new photos that added a wonderful new dimension to our apartment, on her website and shot it out to her wide ranging broker network. She conducted an open house that Sunday and we had an accepted full price offer later that day from a highly qualified buyer. We could not be happier with her service. If you sign with Eileen, just be prepared to start packing. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Eileen helped us with the purchase of one Manhattan apartment and the sale of another simultaneously over a 14 month period. We were thankful every day of those 14 months for having her as our broker. Eileen ALWAYS puts her clients' needs and interests ahead of her own. On multiple occasions she protected us from ourselves by refusing to let us put in a high bid on the sell side or accept a low offer on the buy side. Eileen is extremely hard working, knows the Manhattan market inside out, and does her homework on everything from pricing to ferreting out little-known facts about a building or neighborhood to ensure that her client is getting good value and a long term fit. We cannot imagine a more honest, reliable, diligent or knowledgeable broker. She is amazing!

Eileen's approach to buying and selling real estate as well as her dedication to her clients are unparalleled to anything else I've experienced in NYC.  Her no nonsense approach means her she always have your best interest at heart.  It's stating the obvious but I keep using her services both to sell and buy because she's prompt, responsive and knows how to close the deal(s).

John Herbst is a great realtor! .... As a longtime resident, John knows the city inside and out.....We put John through the mill-we were very picky, changed our minds a lot, changed our price point several times, and wanted second looks at many places; but John was totally committed to helping us find the perfect place.. boy did he ever deliver! I am so thrilled with the Co-op we ended up buying and with everything John did to make it happen... I get great satisfaction recommending John to others looking to buy or rent in Manhattan.

Hello John-
I wanted to reach out personally and thank you for your time, attention and care to Susan.  She can not say enough wonderful things about how helpful you were in her recent apartment search.  Relocating to NYC can be quite a stressful proposition and it is so comforting to know when our vendors and partners extend the same warmth and assistance that we do. 
Please know that we will reach out to you for any similar relocation needs for our employees.

Again, thank you.

I just wanted to let you know that I found an apartment this weekend. I am in the process of approval. I worked with John Herbst the realtor you recommended. He was fantastic. We saw all of New York City. He was so professional, organized and very helpful. I would highly recommend him as a realtor for anyone who needs help in the city.... 

Thanks so much, I am very excited.

“I must say that I cannot sing your praises enough as a broker and a person.  You made this process incredibly smooth and enjoyable for us.  Every place you showed us was so indicative of how much you really listened and understood our needs.

Kev and I said to each other so many times through the process how we couldn't fathom doing it without you…...!

Rest assured we will refer you to anyone and everyone we come across………..

Thanks again for everything!!”.
