Services For Buyers

Why Use An Agent

Purchasing a home is an investment in the future. Market knowledge and a depth of market experience are vital when making such an important decision. Ongoing and personalized service and follow-through are equally crucial. This translates into efficient use of your time and effective management of your assets.

New York City offers a wealth of options for residential buyers. From classic prewar co-ops on the Upper East Side to modern glass tower condos in Midtown, and from posh Downtown lofts to beautiful Brooklyn brownstones, the choices seem almost limitless.

Therefore, you must work with an experienced and knowledgeable agent who can offer a wealth of information along with strong negotiating, and problem-solving skills. In a city with over 300 residential real estate firms, choosing the right broker makes all the difference.

The Stribling Difference

For more than 30 years, Stribling has earned the trust of its clients and the respect of its colleagues in the real estate industry. We keep confidences and represent each party with the highest level of service while bringing intelligence and skill to every transaction, large or small.

Stribling's agents offer in-depth market expertise and have intimate knowledge of New York City's most desirable neighborhoods and buildings. Our heightened level of attentiveness and understanding helps us match buyers with homes that reflect their lifestyles, needs, and personalities. And while our approach is ever thoughtful, our responsive agents move quickly in order to ensure that buyers have access to the newest and best properties on the market.

We remain involved at every stage of the purchase: initial home search, negotiation, going to contract, board approval (if purchasing a co-op), and closing. Our goal is to make the buying process as seamless as possible, exceeding our clients' expectations every step of the way. It is one of the reasons that the majority of our business comes from referrals. Our comprehensive and success-oriented approach ensures that clients return to us again and again throughout their lifetimes—and endorse the Stribling name from one generation to the next.
