In reviewing the history while happily ensconced in the present, many of us share the warmth of community and its diverse lifestyles. Both the rich and famous and the quiet contributors to our culture contribute to the essence of London Terrace. Yes, it is, and had been the home of such notables as Annie Leibowitz, Susan Sontag, David Chase, Lorraine Bracco, Debbie Harry, a list of fashion designers too long to mention, as well as the handful of neighbors included here. But our little city is also comprised of so many of us who were gravitated to the building unknowingly, only to learn over the years the sense of community that flourishes here.
To me, it’s best exemplified by this photo of one of the lifeguards helping a longtime resident continue to swim despite her infirmities. This had been an ongoing tradition for several years. Our residents and owners comprise a vast diversity of ages, lifestyles, and notoriety but the beauty is in that we are one.
Celebrating the past, present and future foundation of London Terrace I thank you for contributing to its legacy and invite you to share your stories with me for the next issue of London Terrace Life Magazine.
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.
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.
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.
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.
