Bridget Harvey

As 1st-time home buyers we steeled ourselves for the worst. We’d always heard buying real estate in New York City can be a nightmare. But fortunately we ended up with a secret weapon: Bridget Harvey. She’s the kind of person who turns a stressful process into an enjoyable (dare we say fun?), experience. From the beginning, we were guided and supported at every step, and felt like a top priority. Assuming all of her clients feel like a top priority, that’s no small feat! Bridget has a vast knowledge of the specific complexities of NYC real estate, and conveys them patiently and clearly to her clients. Add her shining personality to her total professionalism, and you have what we consider the perfect broker!

Bridget Harvey sold me my first condo in Manhattan. The neighborhood was new to me and she took the time to show me around and made sure I felt comfortable before purchasing. She was there for me through the entire process. NYC real estate can be confusing for first time home buyers but Bridget is a pro and knows great people to help make the process easier. It turned out to be a wonderful investment.

When the time came for me to move on, Bridget helped me turn the apartment into an investment property. She made sure to find great tenants who are responsible and a great fit for the apartment. I am hoping to buy another property soon and there is no one else I would go to except for Bridget Harvey. She makes me giggle and loves dogs.

I recently sold my beloved apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and enlisted the help of Bridget Harvey as my selling broker. Bridget GOT IT DONE and made me feel very safe and cared for in what can be (and at times, was!) a stressful experience. Homes are very personal things, and making a decision to sell one is a big deal. I appreciated that Bridget really respected and honored that emotional part of the process, and didn't just treat it like a business transaction. Her positivity, efficiency and kindness make all the difference and make her truly the best choice if you are buying or selling an apartment in NYC.

Leslie H, Seller

I was fortunate enough to work with Bridget when buying my first home. She worked tirelessly and intelligently to make sure we were looking at a broad range of options within my budget, so I could get a really clear sense of what possibilites were available. And she has a great sense of humor, too, which helps in a really stressful process. The best thing about working with Bridget is that she listens so well -- to the point where she can predict potential objections, work toward a fast solution, and eliminate choices she knows won't be viable. I would work with her again in a heartbeat!

David Hilder

Ms. Harvey has done an excellent job. Co-ops that are occupied by rent regulated tenants (rent controlled or rent stabilized) are a thinly traded product in the New York City real estate market. They are mostly traded among Investors and Landlords who understand and know this part of the New York City real estate market. They are unlike co-ops intended for someone’s primary residence, of which there are many that are bought and sold each year. These four co-ops, being a part of such a thinly traded segment of the New York City real estate market, take extra effort on the part of the real estate broker/sales person. Ms. Harvey has diligently marketed and exposed these units for sale. She has responded to over one thousand inquiries with patience and professionalism and to date has produced two sales for my company. I and my partners are very pleased with these results and we do recommend Ms. Harvey to anyone who is in the market for New York City real estate, as either a buyer or seller.

-David H., buyer

My husband and I purchased our first home using Bridget as a buyer's agent. She was absolutely indispensable every step of the way. As first time homebuyers, we had very little sense of what to expect and no question was too big or too small for her to to tackle -- she was always available and eager to help by phone or email. Bridget accompanied us at open houses and was totally on top of doing research for us. We ended up buying from a for sale by owner, and Bridget was really focused on keeping everything moving along on track in a timely manner. Bridget helped prep us for the co-op interview and made sure our application was perfectly polished. She recommended a wonderful mortgage broker to us who we were really happy with, and we knew even while we were traveling overseas during the contract process that we could count on her to stay on top of the important details. We ended up closing with no delays or surprises two months after signing the contract. We would wholeheartedly recommend Bridget as a real estate agent to anyone looking to buy or sell anywhere in New York.

~Katherine G. and Travis M., buyers

I had to thank you both once again for going to bat for Kate on this fabulous apartment. I know this is your job every day to inform perspective tenants they have a new place to live, but for us it means far more. For Kate this is the beginning of a new chapter in her life, one that she has been waiting for a long time with great anticipation and excitement. I couldn’t ask for a better apartment and building for her new journey to begin. I know she will be safe and comfortable which are 2 very important elements for myself and her dad. For the very important part you both played in this we thank you from the bottom of our hearts and look forward to some delicious meals in the great neighborhood Kate is now a part of.

Louise Holmes

“Working with Louise almost felt like having a friend at our side who walked through the areas in Brooklyn, answered our questions, swiftly set up viewings and pointed out pros and cons of the places we visited together. We felt that she her ultimate goals was to find a place we could call our new home. We were certainly not easy customers, but she never gave us the feeling of asking too much her or being indecisive. And her being from the UK, we felt that she understood exactly what we were looking for. Never has apartment hunting been more fun. For anyone relocating from Europe to NYC, we cannot think about a better real estate agent. So to sum up, working with Louise has been a fantastic experience.”

Jorrit and Nicole – February 2016

“Louise has been an absolute pleasure to work with. As a student new to NYC and moving into my first apartment, the whole process seemed very daunting and overwhelming. As soon as I met her, she immediately put me at ease with her warm and cheerful personality. She is knowledgeable and really understood what I was looking for. Every single place she took me to matched up to what I was looking for regarding location, budget, etc. She was professional throughout it all and always called to keep me updated. She is such a kind person and made the entire process stress free for both me and my parents and much easier than I anticipated. I couldn't be happier with my new place and I'm so thankful to her for everything!”

Emily Siegel-Solonche, August 2015

“Louise was fantastic .. We are writing this as the parents of a 23 year old grad student (daughter) in NYC. However, we live and work in Los Angeles.. We had no time to help my daughter find a place in late August just before school was to start .. She met our daughter in the city and found her a great place in only one day that was walking distance to her school and within the budget ..Not only did Louise help her find a place but she also helped her roommate get all her paperwork in order .. Louise has an amazing attitude and attention to detail that made all the difference for us.. additionally we were able to handle all of this over the fax and email system .. I recommend Louise Holmes to anyone but especially to parents of children looking for housing for college in NYC!”

Geoff Wells & Janet Ray – August 2015

“Louise is, hands down, the best broker I have ever worked with. Not only is she extremely professional from the get go, but she also adds a real human element as a broker who understands all of the pains and stresses involved with moving.

From the beginning, she demonstrated that she was actively listening to everything we were looking for in an apartment - from the neighborhood, to amenities, to budget. She never showed us a listing that made us question whether she understood what we were looking for - which I appreciated because I never felt like we were wasting any time with her. This of course was significant since we only had 3 days to find a new place - and she nailed it in only one day.

Louise was also incredibly organized, showing up with a folder full of listings which demonstrated to me that she did her due diligence and was on the same page as us regarding our timing and our wants.

It is clear that she is passionate about helping people and this shines through clearly by the incredible job that she does as a broker. We can't thank Louise enough for helping us to find our new home!!!”

Christina and Susy, June 2015

Louise is an emblem for Douglas Elliman in the way she handles her business generally and also our home search. We are a young family with 2 kids under the age of 18 months moving across from the UK, and were naturally very choosy in what we had set our minds to. Not only was she patient with our whims and fancies, but she worked night and day to find us what we had been dreaming for, which is a beautiful family home in Park Slope, Brooklyn. She was highly professional and always upbeat and positive, and just simply a pleasure to be around. She went on to find properties for the rest of my company team who moved across from the UK and Hong Kong, all of them applauding them in the same way. We would recommend her to anyone in search of a home in NYC, especially those with lofty expectations, as handled us amazingly. – Fraser & Chevaun van Rensburg

Fraser & Chevaun van Rensburg, 2015

I am writing to express our gratitude and thanks to Louise Holmes. Louise has been amazing in helping us rent our Brooklyn condo and has been extremely professional and personable.
I would definitely recommend her to our network of friends.

Rodrigo and Karen

"You were such a kind and cheerful help in this effort- We appreciated you so so much for accommodating our needs and really listening to us to understand what we were looking for. You were attentive, considerate, and a true pleasure to work with.When it came time to close the deal, you stood up for us till the end- even when we were feeling pressure from outside sources to sign the lease without our questions being answered. It was so important to know you were on our side. Thank you!!"

-Ben and Cecilia, 2013

Song Shi (Cindy) Jin

“Cindy is a gem of an agent! She helped me find both my places in the city and made the dreaded process of apartment hunting in NYC actually manageable. Cindy is extremely hardworking, diligent, patient, and truly has her client’s best interests at heart. As someone who agonizes over big decisions (like where to live!), I could not be more grateful for Cindy’s assistance. Whether it was offering her professional opinion, giving me space to think things through, or walking a city block with me (for the third time!) to revisit a neighborhood, Cindy really went above and beyond to help me find the right fit. If you want an agent you can trust and who will genuinely work to meet your wants, needs, and budget, then I highly recommend Cindy to anyone looking for a new home in the city!”
