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.

MANHATTAN’S HUDSON YARDS IS THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF THE FUTURE

465 West 23rd Street 7E

Next month, a daring, $20 billion development officially opens on Manhattan’s Far West Side. The 28-acre Hudson Yards sits atop an active rail yard, making it a remarkable architectural and technological achievement. It’s also an audacious experiment in large-scale urban planning, combining public art and tourist-worthy stores and restaurants with high-end office towers and mixed-income residential buildings. “It’s a city within a city,” says Related chairman Stephen Ross. Below, an early look at the first phase of this built-from-scratch neighborhood.

The Chelsea area is constantly improving and since Hudson Yards is only a 12 minute walk from my 465 West 23rd Street #7E listing I decided to fill you in on the new building development!

1. OFFICE BUILDINGS

Hudson Yards has 10 million square feet of office space spread across five high-rises including 30 Hudson Yards, New York’s second-tallest office building. The development has attracted a diverse array of companies including investment firms (KKR), media entities (VaynerMedia, HBO), global conglomerates (L’Oréal, Tapestry), and tech companies (Sidewalk Labs).

2. RESIDENTIAL

Once complete, the development will have 4,000 condominiums and rental apartments with market-rate residences beginning at $1.95 million. Want to jump into the area before all the nearby prices go up? My listing at 465 West 23rd Street #7E is currently at an extremely fair $675,000 price. A great idea for investing for the future. More info here.

3. A CONNECTED DISTRICT

Related uses data from cell phones and street cameras to monitor and react to traffic patterns, air quality, power demands, temperature, and pedestrian flows. The neighborhood’s residents can use the Hudson Yards app to pay bills and book onsite amenities. Visitors who use the public Wi-Fi may opt in to receive notifications about events and experiences.

4. THE SHED

Diller Scofidio + Renfro and Rockwell Group designed this building, which is home to the new nonprofit Shed arts group, dedicated to commissioning and presenting visual and performing arts. Movie director Steve McQueen is overseeing the opening event this spring, a concert series entitled “Soundtrack of America,” celebrating African-American music. The 200,000-square-foot building has an outer shell that slides over the adjoining plaza to create a theater.

5. RETAIL

More than 100 luxury and mass-market stores (including New York City’s first Neiman Marcus) share space in this seven-story building. The second floor will host shops from digitally native retailers (Mack Weldon, M.Gemi).  That is all great since 465 West 23rd Street #7E has a dressing room which is smartly outfitted with an Elfa hanging and storage system and leads you to the lap of luxury, gorgeous bath. Enough space for all your shopping adventures!

6. OBSERVATION DECK

The 100th floor of 30 Hudson Yards has the highest outdoor manufactured viewing area in the western hemisphere, and the fifth highest in the world. Though 465 West 23rd Street #7E has this pretty amazing view:

Swimming Pool

7. FOOD

The 25 onsite restaurants include offerings from Thomas Keller and David Chang. José Andrés and the Adrià brothers (of El Bulli fame) oversee the 35,000-square-foot Mercado Little Spain, showcasing Spanish cuisine.

8. VESSEL

Architect Thomas Heatherwick’s $150 million climbable public art structure is composed of 2,500 steps and 80 landings. Heatherwick sees it as an extension of the High Line, the elevated park that ends at Hudson Yards: “We thought, What if we made a mile of public space wrap around in the air?”

9. THE PUBLIC SQUARE

The Nelson Byrd Woltz-designed five-acre park features more than 28,000 plants and 200 trees that were grown offsite for four years before being transplanted here. “So much of the city is a sidewalk [next to] traffic,” says lead architect Thomas Woltz. “Now we have the opportunity for the car to take a back seat.”

10. SOIL

To keep the soil bed hospitable above a rail yard that can reach 150 degrees, a series of fans ventilate the tracks and cooling liquids circulate through underground tubing. Woltz layered concrete and sand into the soil to train roots to grow wide and shallow, enabling plants to reach maturity. Rainwater is collected in a 60,000-gallon tank and used for irrigation.

11. UNDERGROUND

The entire development sits on a pair of platforms that weigh 35,000 tons and are held up by 300 caissons, drilled into the ground like stakes. The rail yard underneath contains 30 train tracks and three rail tunnels, and will eventually house a new gateway tunnel connecting Manhattan to New Jersey.

12. ENERGY

A 13.2-megawatt cogeneration plant creates enough energy to keep building services, residences, and refrigerators running in the event of a power loss. The waste heat from the plant is used to heat and cool water.

Overall amazing things are happening in this area. You might want to look into moving to the area before it fully takes off and prices go up! For more information click here.
