I wanted to write this letter to clarify why we chose to work with Claudine O’Rourke to represent us in the sale of 42 Fuller Place. My husband and I had been casually engaged with several brokers for the last 2 years while we were considering a move from Brooklyn to Manhattan. In the early days of our search, it was really just exploratory as to what was out there on the market. While other brokers sent me listings from time to time, Claudine O'Rourke was the only one who consistently kept in touch, sending me appropriate listings almost daily and taking me out to see apartments when one sparked my interest. She cultivated a relationship with me which ultimately led to me and my husband found the perfect coop at Beekman Place.

I wanted to write this letter to clarify why we chose to work with Claudine O’Rourke to represent us in the sale of 42 Fuller Place. My husband and I had been casually engaged with several brokers for the last 2 years while we were considering a move from Brooklyn to Manhattan. In the early days of our search, it was really just exploratory as to what was out there on the market. While other brokers sent me listings from time to time, Claudine O'Rourke was the only one who consistently kept in touch, sending me appropriate listings almost daily and taking me out to see apartments when one sparked my interest. She cultivated a relationship with me which ultimately led to me and my husband found the perfect coop at Beekman Place. Once we did find the apartment we wanted to buy, Claudine's expertise in coop purchases and specifically Beekman Place solidified our decision to work with her exclusively. Her experience and knowledge on how to structure our financials so that we could transition smoothly from our sale to our purchase were invaluable. As a matter of fact, we were able to make our purchase prior to selling because of Claudine's know-how. Once we did have an accepted offer on the apartment, we knew we had to get serious about listing our home for sale. Our first inclination had been to go with a neighbor who is also a realtor. But we felt that Claudine had so well represented us on the apartment and that the deals were so closely linked that it would behoove us to go with Claudine. When we were finally ready to pull the trigger on the sale, we felt loyalty to Claudine O’Rourke for helping us find our new home. We were impressed with her negotiation skills and her knowledge and knew she would be the best choice for the sale of our home. We would be happy to answer any additional questions on the matter regarding our selection of Claudine O’Rourke at any time.

Within the first time seeing a property with her, we knew we wanted to go with Claudine. She knew exactly what we wanted and kept our search limited to those factors. She is the real thing. She's professional and knows her business inside out. She walked us through a very complicated system we bought in a co-op and always provided clear and straightforward answers to our many questions. I had heard horror stories from friends who bought co-ops and by the time we were done with our deal, I can honestly say that I had no idea what they were talking about. Our buying process with Claudine was excellent. She answered emails within minutes. She was never late. She brought paperwork to our home with more than enough time to finish it before deadlines. She answered questions kindly and often with humor, which made every aspect of this purchase a positive experience. She changed the life of our …

We met Claudine O'Rourke when moving to NYC from Colorado. She turned a really stressful situation into a wonderful move experience. Our old home had sold quickly, and we were really under the gun to find a new place. Plus, since we were still living in Colorado, our time to view properties was very limited. After just one conversation with Claudine, we knew we were in good hands. She's an extraordinary listener, and quickly understood exactly what we were looking for. Claudine is also extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market. She was able to advise us on things we should look for, and pitfalls to avoid. She's also a skilled negotiator, with an excellent work ethic-she really goes the extra mile for her clients. Thanks to Claudine we found a wonderful coop apartment it was a great bargain, and better than what we'd anticipated finding. We would recommend Claudine O'Rourke wit…

It has been a pleasure to work with Claudine on the sale of my apartment located at 439 E. 51st Street. Truth be told, Claudine was recommended strongly to me by my doorman and superintendent. As a 30 plus year resident of this city, I know more real estate brokers in this fine town than I can count and I was fully prepared to ask one of them to handle the sale. However, upon hearing of Claudine’s winning personality, her expertise in the market and neighborhood, and her knowledge of the business I was intrigued. Meeting Claudine was a treat, and I have to say she easily won me over. More importantly, her marketing materials and sales strategy were first-rate. Needless to say, she got the job done creating that winning trifecta or buyer, seller, and a broker. It is without hesitation that I endorse Claudine and her staff and congratulate her for a job well done.

Her team could not be more professional or responsive. Claudine reached out and was very engaging and had tremendous knowledge of the market. Extremely knowledgeable of the business and closing process for the coop being purchased. She and her team could not have been more than professional or responsive. Extremely good at what she does, exudes confidence, and has a great approach. And way in working with clients. Totally trustworthy and always looking out for my best interest was hesitant going through buying a coop with all the steps and approvals. Claudine could not have been more supportive and knowledgeable throughout the process.

Claudine is extremely knowledgeable about the intricacies of Manhattan real estate. She was introduced to me by a close friend who had great previous experience and success with her. She quickly understood what I was looking for and had a good sense of what would be the right fit, responding quickly to questions and communicating clearly throughout the process. From our initial meeting to contract negotiations, Claudine’s knowledge, guidance, and sense of humor made the experience easy and enjoyable. I would highly recommend working with Claudine.

As a first-time buyer, I couldn't be more thankful to have had Claudine by our side. She was super patient and always provided us with all the explanations and guidance we needed throughout the entire process. She always made us feel like we were her top priority no matter the obstacles we encountered which we plenty. Claudine made the entire lengthy process as seamless as possible. I would recommend her to all my friends and family without hesitation.

Hayley

We were referred to Claudine after a less than acceptable experience with another broker who we found to be pushy and not respectful of our time. Claudine was the very opposite of this, arriving early and previewing houses so we could be sure those we were seeing were worthwhile. Her response time regarding any question from the moment we engaged her until post-closing was exceptional. She was polite, considerate, and a friend through the process.

Mike P.

We could not have purchased our apartment without Claudine. I honestly don't think we would have found what we wanted if we had gone with someone else. She provided my wife and me and now our newborn son with a place to make happy memories, and we are eternally grateful for all of her perseverance and hard work. I can't say enough.

Dianne

I highly recommend Claudine O'Rourke if you need a broker. She is intelligent, accessible, and knows her business well. She is experienced, knows when to push for something, and is capable of doing so. I am a real estate novice, and she guided me through the process of purchasing a coop. Excellent experience.

Work With Claudine

Want a no B--S-- agent who knows her stuff and is nice?? Yah, nice. I love my job and I calculate debt to income ratios in my sleep! Nobody knows a co-op better than me. If you want someone shrewd who uses her kindness as a weapon, then I’m your girl.
