Nicole Grandelli - Stribling & Associates
 

Experience

Nicole Grandelli boasts nearly a decade in the business and her success is a testament to her unique skillset. Working exclusively with partner Jason Lanyard from the moment they met in early 2008, Lanyard and Grandelli have redefined luxury residential brokerage by reclaiming the role of trusted investment advisor and marketing strategist to their A-list clients throughout the city and the globe.

Nicole's greatest asset, hands down, is her impeccable intuition. Her currency is the trust her clients place in exactly that. She always finds it surprising that people spend hundreds of thousands of dollars with a hand-selected stockbroker yet do not hesitate to throw millions into real estate without consulting the right real estate broker. Years of experience showing thousands of apartments and engineering hundreds of transactions have given her the means to make razor sharp projections for every single aspect of the buying and selling process. From the moment she first lays eyes on a property, she knows what kinds of buyers the listing will attract and what price it will sell for. She is literally a flight of steps ahead of everyone else in the market so she can troubleshoot and preempt obstacles before they ever arise. Nicole is constantly running state of cost-value analysis to ensure that every buyer's dollar is wisely invested and, similarly, that her seller's assets are optimally maximized.

Nicole's marketing skills are of great value to her clients. She micromanages the wide array of moving parts in the sale process, from staging and architectural renderings to targeted advertising and exploit of direct contacts. She is able to originate a customized strategy for every single property and is also adept at changing tactics in midstream to accommodate everchanging trends in the marketplace and buyers' tastes. She believes quite firmly that a buyer needs only show up and leave the rest in her capable hands; she will coordinate interior designers, expediters, and every possible ancillary personae to promote an informed decision and a fruitful transaction.

Lanyard and Grandelli are a perfect complement to each other, giving their clients two power brokers for the price of one. Jason is the abstract numbers-driven yin to Nicole's reality-based yang. Along with their associate Geo Punnapuzha, they are able to accommodate an incredibly diverse portfolio of properties, selling scores of condominium resales, cooperatives, townhouses and new developments in a wide array of neighborhoods including the Upper East and Upper West Sides, Midtown, Chelsea, Greenwich Village, Gramercy/Flatiron, Soho, Tribeca, Harlem, Brooklyn Heights, Fort Greene, Dumbo, Boerum Hill, and Long Island City.

Nicole lives on the Upper West Side with her two children and is a graduate of New York University.

Testimonials

Jason and Nicole are an amazing team, top-notch brokers, and more importantly top-notch people-- I have a very deep affection and respect for them both. They handled two downtown properties for us at the same time. I found that they not only do their work at the highest professional level, Jason having an incredible grasp of the details and analytics, and Nicole having an incredible ability to assess the big picture, trends and overall market, they truly look out for the needs of their clients! Jason and Nicole not only sold our apartment in the Soho/Tribeca neighborhood for a price we were very happy with, way above our purchase price, they also simultaneously represented us in purchasing our new apartment in North Tribeca. For the sale of our old apartment, both of them patiently helped us through each stage of the process: staging, marketing, and listing. Their guidance and judgment was stellar! When we purchased our new apartment, a three-bedroom new development, they once again gingerly guided us, answering all of our many questions and concerns and ultimately negotiating the best deal for us. I would wholeheartedly recommend them especially in a competitive market like New York City! They truly look out for their clients and have the skills and experience that's needed in a cutting-edge real estate market! -- Andrew & Yelda Moers

If you are looking for an intelligent, savvy, dedicated and absolutely trustworthy & reliable team to handle your real estate goal, whether buying or selling, you have found the very best in Nicole Grandelli and Jason Lanyard. They have extensive and valuable real estate experience in NYC and a clear grasp of the city's unique and particular challenges. My husband and I sold our Manhattan condo with Nicole and Jason's excellent and professional assistance and we felt in good hands every step of the way. They never shirked when obstacles appeared and, in fact, any challenges we faced along the way just served to highlight their tenacity and creativity in surmounting them. The whole process of selling our property, from the decision to put in on the market until the closing documents were signed, was a pleasure and a success, entirely due to the work ethic and smarts of Nicole and Jason. We cannot recommend their services highly enough.
From two of their biggest and most satisfied fans. -- Lisa & Frits Bruggink

When I met Jason and Nicole, we had already listed the property for a few months with the #2 broker at Corcoran who sold a handful of large uptown coop apartments each week and had promised us the world - both in selling price and in attention to our listing. What we got was lack of focus, poor feedback, and excuses for her inability to get bids.

Jason and Nicole came in and their energy and attention to detail was just what the doctor ordered. When the buyers told them the space was not configured to their liking, Jason and Nicole provided architectural renderings to show them what it could look like. When the buyers told them the price was too high, they were shown detailed stats of selling comps to reinforce our pricing. On the creative side Nicole insisted on having the apartment repainted which helped generate interest. On the deal making side Jason made sure the buyers were qualified and would pass our coop board. He got to know our board and building in a way that no broker I have worked with has ever bothered to do.

Jason and Nicole were relentless, extremely aggressive, and they really gave us comfort knowing that the deal was in capable hands. With the first broker we never got a single bid. With Jason and Nicole we got multiple bids, but did not settle until we got the right price. Without the superlative efforts of Jason and Nicole, I struggle to imagine how we would have sold our place; it would have been painful. -- Morgan Mermagen

Lanyard and Grandelli surpassed our expectations. From the thoughtful listing description to the smart open houses and the individual attention they showed each prospective buyer, we knew we were in good hands. They guided us through the process with great advice, yet always listened to us as sellers and understood our concerns. Together they are extremely efficient--we had a signed contract within a month of listing our property. Throughout the whole experience, we knew Jason and Nicole were working diligently and swiftly to sell our home– in a competitive market like this, there is no one we would rather use. --Tim and Kim H.

We worked with Jason Lanyard and Nicole Grandelli to buy two apartments in Manhattan. What we wanted (and got!) in a real estate agent was knowledge of the market and the ability to listen and interpret our needs and wants. Both Jason and Nicole really know the market. They also listened to what we said and only showed us apartments that met our criteria. We've dealt with many agents who show you what they know is available even if it isn't what you want. It can be a total waste of time. Jason and Nicole were very respectful of our time and effort and only showed us relevant listings. When we got more interested in a given apartment, we got comps very quickly to help us determine if we wanted to proceed. We had special needs: one apartment was to be a pied a terre and the other was a purchase for a child, both of which situations many buildings don't allow. We love both apartments and feel like we got really good deals on them. We highly recommend Jason and Nicole. -- Dena Domenicali and Ramesh Shah.

Nicole and Jason are an amazing team! From search to close, they were extremely attentive and worked together to ensure I was a highly satisfied client. There were several complications in the process, not that they owned, but they immediately became involved and drove to resolution so I didn't have to. At all times, I felt fully confident in their advice and capability. They are smart, thorough, and dedicated to making the experience as pleasant as possible. I will absolutely continue to recommend them and be sure to use them myself in the future! -- Rob Lepere

For many years we used this outstanding team of thorough Real Estate Professionals to rent our Tribeca Loft. When it was the right time to sell, for us and the Market, they handled the sale. It was a very old building with complicated issues. Their experience and contacts and sense of humor, were essential to completing the sale. They got us a top price, in cash. Now we are contemplating purchasing a Studio, in another neighborhood and look forward to working with them again. It has been a joy to see Nicole and Jason’s intelligence and professionalism rewarded by their success. -- Patricia Matthews
