Susan is professional, responsive and honest. Those are the three most important traits for a broker to have.
To me, the three most important traits in a real estate broker are professionalism, responsiveness, and honesty. In my opinion, these are Susan’s three best qualities. She is far and away the best agent I’ve ever met in terms of these attributes, and she’s a real pleasure to work with. I’d recommend her without hesitation. She’s incredibly knowledgeable about the Chelsea area and the buildings within the neighborhood.

Extremely pleasant, comfortable and successful experience.
My experience working with Susan was extremely pleasant and comfortable. Susan took the time to understand what I was looking for in an apartment and helped me find just the right one. Susan was thoughtful, patient, extremely professional and always responsive. She was able to facilitate and expedite the process so that both the seller and I were very pleased with the timetable. I believe that Susan is a strong negotiator who worked diligently to ensure that both parties moved smoothly towards an agreement and ultimately a contract. I can say for certain that I will turn to Susan again when I am in need of a real estate agent and I highly recommend her to all.

The "Queen of London Terrace," has orchestrated two purchases and a sale for me over the last eight years. Given that back in 2013 I was undertaking my first property purchase in the USA and knew nothing about Co-Ops, I needed extra special handling. Susan was patience incarnate. She's incredibly loyal and thoughtful and always maintains great communication. A thoroughly decent person, Susan's exactly who you need on your side in the crazy world of NYC property.

Susan Singer was our real estate broker during the recent sale of our co-op in New York. Her work was exemplary. She got the sale and the closing done rapidly. She also quickly and efficiently surmounted the many obstacles that occurred during the period between the signing of the sales contract and the closing. All this was done while we were located outside of New York City. I highly recommend her and would use her again should the opportunity present itself.

Susan is always a step ahead. Very pro-active.
I’ve bought and sold with Susan now, and I’ve never been as comfortable with another agent as I am with her. She’s very pro-active, is always a step ahead, but she keeps me well-informed with the whole process, so there are never any surprises. I highly recommend her. In selling my apartment, I think Susan priced the property perfectly, and her negotiating skills were remarkable. On the buying end, she took care of me while still representing her seller, and I really have the utmost respect for her because of that. Whether purchasing or selling, working with Susan is a wonderful experience.

I recommend her strongly. Susan is an advisor, an advocate, someone you can trust. I've had the most extraordinary circumstances that she has helped me navigate. She's committed to the long term relationship and is relentless in the pursuit of solutions that work(ed) for me. I would never venture into a real estate endeavor without her.

Susan is very professional, highly detail oriented and very easy to work with. She is a straight shooter and extremely honest with her clients, wanting the best for them. I can highly recommend her to anyone seeking a truly professional Realtor.

Susan’s guidance, support and responsiveness made all the difference.
For a number of years we thought about living in New York City but quite frankly, the entire process overwhelmed us. This past May, we met Susan and the journey towards owning an apartment began. Susan’s help, guidance and support in our quest to become NYC apartment owners were immeasurable. She was by our side, step-by-step, providing valuable information about the market, community, co-op living, etc.

Susan is very professional and has tremendous experience in the Manhattan real estate market. Her expertise was a huge asset in our sale since I was handling the sale of a very unique older penthouse from long distance. Without my need to fly to New York, she handled staging,marketing and showings. Highly recommended

Susan provides the utmost level of service to her customers. When I sought to rent out my apartment, Susan took a commanding lead on the process, organizing the marketing, board approval process, document drafting, and numerous other details that I didn’t have to worry about. She has a keen sense of the market – my apartment was in contract the day after it was listed – and a confidence that I found reassuring throughout the process. Susan’s experience and knowledge at London Terrace are unparalleled. There is no doubt that I work with Susan again.

Susan was our broker for the sale of our co-op in New York. Our sale was a breeze thanks to Susan. When we sat down with her the first time, she came prepared with comps, and after viewing the apartment, she set the initial price that was just right. She was able to find buyers who truly loved our apartment, and we sold the apartment very quickly with no drama. Great communication and really accommodating. Having said that, what sets her truly apart from other brokers is her decades of experience imo (e.g. setting the right price, understanding the market and target audience). Highly recommended.

Susan didn’t just find me an apartment, she found me my home. Buying and selling in this city can be frustrating and, let’s face it, plain awful. But Susan was always there with her sage advice, reassuring words, and to tell me to “breathe.” Her support was needed and much appreciated. And in the end, I didn’t just find a home, I gained a friend.

LIVING THE DREAM SURROUNDED BY ART: LONDON TERRACE TOWERS PENTHOUSE

Living the dream
Waiting Room

Chelsea is the neighborhood to be living in for New York City. Surrounded by many great restaurants, famous sights, including the High Line, Chelsea Market, and now Hudson Yards, it is bursting with places to see and activities to do. With more than 200 art galleries, the neighborhood is known as a center for art in the city.

With this area being the center for art, I am so excited about one of our newest listings which allows you to live your life surrounded by art in more ways than one. The London Terrace Towers Penthouse has 360 degree views offering unobstructed views of every iconic structure from the Statue of Liberty and Freedom Tower to the Empire State Building, you’ll see both the Hudson and East Rivers with one turn of the head.

Bed Room

Yet even with all of this outside the Penthouse, the inside is just as amazing! Artwork by Rory Gevis and Dianne Athey is displayed throughout the apartment. Both artists live in London Terrace, as they are just some of the talented very artists living here. Obviously the building proximity to the galleries and studio spaces serves as a magnet for many artists as we mentioned previously. Plus this Penthouse does an amazing job of being its own version of an art gallery with all of this local and important art since they all go hand-in-hand so perfectly!

Designer

Displayed in the bedroom above is artwork by Gevis. With an amazing background, Gevis’ editorial talents have spanned being Style Director of House and Garden, W Magazine, Mirabella, and Taxi Magazine. Her corporate background include Estee Lauder as Vice President of creative concepts for Prescriptives. She has worked at MAC cosmetics as creative executive director working on concepts for print, packaging and product development. Thus she is always creating visuals that were award winning and memorable. For no matter what she has always been an artist who enjoys telling amazing stories through her art.

Gevis has been commissioned to create art that has been featured in Barneys NY Madison Avenue windows and she is continually commissioned to paint and photograph people, and pets. Inspiration comes from everything she visually encounters on a daily basis. Her clients are from the storied worlds of fashion, publishing and entertainment, and reside everywhere from Singapore to Hollywood to Chelsea London and Manhattan. An obviously multi-talented and great person to live near, we always cherish conversations with her.

 

In her own words she, “loves to tell a story of what is beneath the surface, touch the viewers and the subject’s soul but leave them still wondering a bit.”

Next we have Dianne Athey with her group of artwork, entitled “Sea Glass”. These sets of paintings beautifully compliment the lighting and blue sky views that you receive with the large windows through out the Penthouse, but especially in the living room!

This especially sets ups the grandeur of the Penthouse as when you are entering the foyer your first view is of the grand scaled living room living wrapped in the 8′ windows, accenting the 12′ ceilings and full-length terrace. Taking in the views, along with the complimentary artwork, may inspire you to explore the area more.

With the opening of Hudson Yards nearby this center of art for New York City is growing. The Vessel is an incredible piece of interactive art and The Shed is a performing arts theater which is an architectural phenomenon. This all plays so well with the High Line. The verdant, elevated promenade offers great views of the neighborhood—a mix of industrial landmarks and gleaming new structures—and passes through the old loading dock of the former Nabisco factory, which now houses the eateries and shops of Chelsea Market. During the warmer months, the High Line hosts awesome (and free) events such as live music and dance performances. So there is no shortage of things to do!

Room

Aside from all the experimental Chelsea art galleries, food-obsessed folks can enjoy scrumptious meals from restaurants serving rare bites like mac-and-cheese spring rolls. The neighborhood’s nightlife scene is also ace, offering great speakeasy bars as well as dives. Plus, lovers of flea markets can peruse antiques and bric-a-brac at outdoor and indoor markets such as Artist & Fleas.
