Madeline A. McKenna - Stribling & Associates

People say you have to have luck to be successful in real estate. Luck has nothing to do with it. It takes hard work, dedication and perseverance, and years of experience.

Experience

Together averaging over 25 years in New York real estate, Jeff and Madeline are a highly effective team. Their partnership has provided them an opportunity to excel using their greatest strengths, a high standard of ethics, sharp negotiating skills and a keen insight into current market trends and pricing strategies.

Very few real estate brokers are as enjoyable to work with or as effective as Jeff and Madeline. They can be depended upon to handle any real estate transaction successfully. It is their passion for success that has led them to earn a reputation as one of Manhattans most accomplished and highly respected professional teams.

Jeff and Madeline have completed the high level Advanced Graduate Designation Course called New York Residential Specialist (NYRS). The course is for advanced brokers who are interested in raising the bar in knowledge and professionalism in the New York City residential real estate market. Out of the over 14,000 real estate professionals in NYC they are among only a few hundred that have The Real Estate Board of New York esteemed NYRS accreditation.

Jeff and Madeline inspire trust and deliver results. The reason for their success is simple: they love what they do and they work hard to achieve their clients’ goals. Even after having sold hundreds of apartments from studios to historic townhouses they look forward to the newness and uniqueness of each transaction.

My Approach

"Even after having sold hundreds of homes it never gets old. We look forward to the newness and the uniqueness of each and every sale. The thing that counts the most to us are the people we meet and the relationships that have been built through the years."

Testimonials

"We wanted to thank you for assisting us in the purchase of our apartment. It was a pleasure to deal with such professional, knowledgeable and friendly brokers. We especially appreciated the manner in which you honestly presented the apartment and the quickness in which you responded to our questions and concerns. Although you were not our brokers, we often felt that you were. The sellers should know that they were represented extremely well. We I wish you continued success and we hope to keep in touch in the future."

- Javier & Rebecca S.

“We have had the good fortune to work with Madeline and Jeff for more than ten years as we and other members of our family have bought and sold residences in NYC. Both their knowledge of the market and their guidance in steering us through the intricacies of buying and selling coop apartments in Manhattan proved invaluable to us. Their integrity and professionalism are exemplary.”

– Bob & Claire

“What I thought would be the most terrifying and stressful experience turned out to be the most exciting and liberating experience I’ve had in real estate. I truly believe that it would not have been this way without Jeff & Madeline.. Their professionalism and diligence are what enabled me to get the apartment I desired. Their advice, concern and excitement came genuinely from the heart. They took me through the process from A to Z.”

- Lauren M-

Madeline and Jeff have represented us in the purchase and sale of several apartments. Both as our home and investment properties. We continue to call on them to benefit from their professionalism and keen insight into the Manhattan real estate market. If you’re thinking of buying or selling your apartment we whole heartedly recommend them.

– Joe F. & Lydia Q.

”Jeff and Madeline take care of our real estate needs from start to finish. We have worked with them for over 15 years and they are knowledgeable experts on the NYC market. Recently, they helped us sell our two-bedroom apartment (in one week) and helped us find our dream Classic 7. Jeff and Madeline make everything as stress-free as possible – they are extremely responsive 24/7, listen closely to our needs, stand up for their clients, have a positive attitude and a gentle touch that manages to get the deal done. There is no other team that we would use or recommend more highly.”

– Charissa & Pat F.

“During the years that we have known Jeff & Madeline we have referred them to family, friends and business associates, for whom they have brokered sales and purchases in their typical efficient and professional manner. They are always available and know the West Side coop and condo market cold. Although, never pushy, Jeff & Madeline somehow always managed to lead us to homes that we liked and fit our criteria of size, location and price. We couldn't imagine better brokers.”

- Amy & John B. -

“What can we possible say but thank you so very much for everything you have done for us. We are very excited about our new apartment. This was probably one of the smaller sales you have dealt with in awhile but you helped fulfill a large dream for us. We look forward to working with you again when we are ready for our Park Avenue Penthouse! You are a great asset to your profession.”

- Philip T. & Howard W.

“I had been trying to sell through other brokers, ads, etc., for months. But Jeff found a buyer immediately. Since the buyer was a first-time purchaser, she was understandably nervous about the whole thing. He helped her get over her cold feet, and worked with her through the very long process of obtaining financing. He also has a great personality, which made the whole thing almost ----fun.”
- Andrea T.

“It has been such a pleasure working with you. Your attention to detail and your gift for dealing with difficult people and situations are invaluable.”

- Terry K.

“When my wife and I decided to sell our apartment, we picked Jeff & Madeline because we knew they had sold a good number of the apartments in our building. We were very happy with our choice. Selling your apartment is a time of great stress and it makes a difference to have as a broker and adviser someone who is calm, straightforward and knowledgeable. They were always available and helpful. If you are thinking of selling your apartment, I whole heartedly recommend them.

- Chris L.

“I am truly grateful for all your help, insight, perseverance and patience.”

- Andy S.

“You are, by far, the nicest real estate brokers in New York City and we will always recommend you to anyone and everyone.”

- Jackie & Tom S.

“It took two or three months to find just the right place but there was no sense of pressure or tension. Jeff & Maddy were attentive and responsive at all times.”

- Nolen B.
