Linda Y. | Seller

Lori and Clare sold an apartment in a Brooklyn brownstone for us and we were incredibly happy and satisfied with them. They were a great team: splitting tasks yet in-sync and communicating well. Their efforts went above and beyond the usual and were especially crucial to us because of our particular situation: I live in California and needed to sell this unit to help a family member. Lori and Clare needed to personally arrange and supervise tasks for which they would not normally be responsible. I flew out one weekend and packed up what we wanted to keep. After that, they had to finish everything else to get it ready to sell! This included: moving and storing our belongings, packing up and removing remaining items, assessing unit, and contracting and supervising services to get unit ready (electrical, patching, painting, cleaning) as well as the usual tasks of coordinating with Compass Concierge and master-minding the selling strategy. I also could never have prepared our unit to showcase it at this level without the Concierge service. They were indispensable and advanced us thousands of dollars to fund the needed work. Lori and Clare sold our unit at the high-end of our goal, at a price-point that other realtors had told us was unrealistic. They were able to provide critical services we needed that no other realtor could have provided. As for the selling process, they were confident and decisive on what needed to be done and guided us with the best advice on timing, strategy, and selling price. Because of them, I never needed to fly back to New York and had very little to do or stress about. I am so thankful that we chose them, and I am not exaggerating when I say that Lori and Clare were life-savers for us.

Adam & Brenda S. | Seller & Buyer

"The Mendelis/Saliba team made our dreams come true! Our apartment was sold without fuss or drama, at a price that well exceeded our highest expectations. Thanks to Lori and Clare’s tireless work, knowledge of their industry and professionalism, I think we set a land speed record with our sale and concurrent purchase of a new home for our family. They listened to our hopes and vision for our future, and stayed true to what our needs and desires were every step along the way. A new chapter of our lives has begun and I am reeling from our good fortune of having had The Mendelis/Saliba Team help bring us here."

Eric & Jodi H. | Seller & Buyer

"As our buyers' agent, Lori zeroed in on our wants, needs, & limits. Her guidance reflected her extensive neighborhood experience and a passion for real estate. Then, as our listing agent, Lori placed our interests first, exercised strong business savvy and proactive approaches at tough junctures. She was full service, so detail-focused,& brought much-needed reason and humor to a daunting process."

Steven & Kathy G. | Seller & Buyer

"Working with Clare has been the best decision we’ve ever made! She has been our go-to broker since 2006 and has represented us in several sales and purchases, working tirelessly to ensure we found the right fit for our expanding family each time. Her professionalism, promptness, honesty, and overall wonderful disposition are without equal -- we can’t imagine working with anyone else."

Edward & Yvette O. | Seller & Buyer

"Clare is an absolute gem. From the outset, she served as our strongest advocate and was available to us 24/7. When our purchase hit a few bumps in the road, she worked tenaciously to smooth out any issues and make sure all parties were satisfied. Above all, we consider ourselves lucky to have found an agent who we implicitly trust. We can’t recommend her highly enough."

Molly M. | Seller & Buyer

“Lauren Fernandes is not only an absolute professional but a complete pleasure to work with. Her expertise allowed us to properly position the sale of our co-op and receive multiple offers over asking within two weeks of our first open house. Lauren stayed on top of all of the requirements for board approval and ensured a smooth closing. At the same time, she was scouting properties for us to purchase – making sure that we could get in for a showing as soon as possibilities hit the market. Her proactive approach enabled us to find our dream townhouse and for our offer to be accepted quickly. We are so happy to have finally found “home” and are so grateful to Lauren for making it all happen!”

Jay V. | Seller

"Lori Mendelis was an absolute delight to work with. Her enthusiasm, positive attitude, hustle and charm won us over and won prospective buyers over with 5 offers in a 3-month period in one of the toughest real estate markets in 20 years. There might be a lot of good agents out there to work with, but what makes Lori special is her A+ service to her clients 24/7. I would highly recommend her!"

Anna P. | Buyer

"Lori served as the buyer's broker & the seller's broker on our deal. She was absolutely fantastic! She was fair & objective with us, always got back to us promptly & kept us up to date on all developments. When issues arose, she worked tenaciously & saved the deal. She served as our advocate with all involved parties to ensure that both buyer & seller were satisfied. We highly recommend her!"

Drew D. | Seller

"Choosing Lori was the best decision we could have made! In a very difficult market, Lori worked with us every step of the way. Her strategy, focus & flexibility got our apartment sold within six weeks, in spite of the overall market slowdown. Lori is optimistic, driven, super smart and a joy to work with. She made all of the difference for us. We cannot recommend her highly enough."

Sal H. | Seller & Buyer

"Professional, honest, ethical, great to work with, and very responsive. Clare and Lori provided superior client service and made my real estate transaction go like a breeze. Would use their services again with my eyes closed."
