Testimonials

I cannot thank Jody enough for removing the stress during a very tumultuous time. Jody is multi-talented in every phase of the process. From strategy to staging to negotiating, she delivers nothing but quality. She proposed a well-thought out plan and her staging ability transformed an empty apartment into a desirable home. Looking back, I truly believe Jody’s imagination and personality are what hooked our buyers. She is also a skilled negotiator who delivered a well-above-asking offer and knows how to navigate the intricacies of New York City real estate. From first open house until co-op Board approval, it took only six weeks. Jody knows only one approach and that is to go above and beyond for her clients. --C.M. ,Portfolio Manager

I have bought and sold many homes, working with several top brokers in New York City. Jody was a consummate professional from beginning to end and exceeded my expectations in handling the disposition of our eight room apartment. The apartment was priced, marketed and negotiated perfectly, including being staged from top to bottom. The result was that after just a few days on the market we received multiple offers that were significantly above what we were asking and we sold at a record price. We had not expected to get the full asking price as the apartment did not sell when we listed it a few months earlier with another broker. The purchasers sailed through the board application process of the Coop and both parties were delighted with the outcome. Throughout the process, Jody was available, responsive, and reliable and paid great attention to every detail of the transaction. She was a pleasure to work with. I am looking forward to our next deal together.

Jody is an extraordinary broker who accommodated our requests for multiple return apartment viewings promptly and always with patience - even introducing us to current residents so we could get a feel for the building. In working with our complex financials, Jody was essential in packaging and presenting to the coop board. Thank you, Jody!

Jody is by far the greatest broker you can find to sell your apartment. Based on her extraordinary understanding and knowledge of the NYC real estate market she is able to price the unit perfectly and then uses her magic to make it all happen. She is an expert at staging and partial staging, making sure your buyer’s board package is complete and compelling, and just making the whole process go smoothly. On top of all that she has a heart of gold and is a great hand holder. You can’t go wrong with Jody!

Jody is a broker that perseveres and found the apartment that was perfect for me after a year of searching in a tight seller's market. She was available to give advice for every detail, whether decorative or financial, and helped me glide through not only a bidding process with 13 other bidders for my Park Avenue apartment, but the application process as well. I am happily ensconced in my home and should I decide to sell, I would definitely have Jody represent me on the other side of the table. She is always there to answer a question, a text, or an email and will do what it takes to get the information for any question you may have, if at all possible. It took me a while to find the apartment that was "the one" but I never felt pressure to make a decision that wasn't the right one for me.

After three years of renting (intended to be one year), my husband, Scott, and I took on the search for a NYC family home on the UWS sans broker for us and our three children and the extended family that comes to visit (regularly).

We were not novices to the real estate process – we had bought in NYC twice previously. With apartment sales on line through Streeteasy and the NYTimes, we felt confident our focused search would quickly yield a lovely, light-filled, spacious home within walking distance to the kids’ schools. We quickly learned that the market for family-sized apartments in NYC is particularly competitive, and many apartments are sold before first showing.

One afternoon, I happened upon a promising listing with Jody Martini was the seller’s broker. I reached out via email asking to see the apartment, and Jody responded within the hour with a couple different options. Jody was consistently gracious and promptly accommodating when I needed to make return visits with the kids, my husband, the architect, and so forth. Jody even invited us to a building showing of the apartment to meet residents and gain a familiarity with the culture of the building – it was terrific.

In the bidding process (it came to that), Jody was centered and respectful and wisely advised "bid to your comfort level". We did, and won the bid.

Then the real work of brokering began. With particularly complex financials involving equity accruing over time, investments in multiple states, totaling nearly a thousand pages of explanation, Jody offered insight and elbow grease to the process of packaging and presenting our financials to our coop board. Yes, our coop board. We got the apartment. Thanks, Jody!
