Angela Ward

Angela Ward & Maria Goretti

We are so grateful to Maria and Angela for selling our condo! They are intelligent, strategic, collaborative, flexible, honest and fun to work with! They run a seamless process, provide excellent advice and counsel and I have the ultimate confidence in their ability to deliver results – even in the most complex situations.Maria initially came recommended to me by my commercial broker. When I approached her to help with the sale of our East Williamsburg condo, I wasn’t even sure that she’d be up for the challenge. I laid out all of the issues we would need to overcome and Maria seemed energized by the challenge.Maria brought Angela in to help think through the best strategy for our unique situation. Their “two heads are better than one” and strong values based approach really appealed to me. Together they brilliantly tailored an approach to overcome the various challenges we faced after already having been on the market with other unsuccessful brokers for 9 months! Angela and Maria had intelligent, fresh ideas and were true thought partners throughout the experience. They were super collaborative with us, our neighbors, the broker community and buyers - everyone involved was very motivated to work with them.

Jared LaFrenais

Thanks for all your help, guidance, patience, and all around pleasant company. I certainly did not realize what a process this would be, but it would have been either or both of impossible and unbearable without you.

- Todd Solash – AXA Equitable

Jared was the most knowledgeable, efficient, and informative agent I have worked with. It’s not easy to find someone who fully understands your needs, but after explaining to Jared just once exactly what I wanted, he worked hard and fast to deliver. He kept me in the loop during the entire search, and even went the extra step to guide me through the home buying process. As I first time homebuyer, I wouldn’t have trusted anyone else. I would highly recommend him to friends and family, as he is both experienced and personable, and provides a feeling of comfort and positivity in what can often be a very stressful experience.

- Andrea Badalamenti – ING Direct

Navigating the real estate market and buying process in Brooklyn can be harrowing but you kept us calm through a difficult negotiation and closing. Thank you for your patience, knowledge, responsiveness, and persistence. I do not think we could have done it without your advice and now we are more than thrilled to be settled into our beautiful new Ditmas condo!

We had the pleasure of working with both Jared LaFrenais and David Wanamaker to sell my apartment. We were unlucky in our quest to sell our home ourselves so after 6 weeks of trying we brought in the varsity squad to the rescue. We interviewed other brokers, but David & Jared by far struck us as the most professional and honest. We quickly hired them and were not disappointed. Within 10 days we had 2 offers at asking price. They did an amazing job managing the process from the initial apartment photos to the close. We would gladly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in New York City.

Dickse Fitzgerald

Dickse was indispensable to my husband and me in our search for the perfect apartment on the Upper West Side. When we bid on the apartment, there were eleven other offers. With Dickse's negotiation skills and relationship with the seller's broker, we won the bidding war. We then had to fill out a purchase application that was almost ten inches high! Dickse's expertise in purchase applications was a great asset and made the purchase application run much more smoothly. We are thrilled with the service Dickse provided and have already recommended her to a number of friends. - Marlene M.

Dickse was my broker when I purchased a condo in Gramercy 18 years ago. At the time I was relocating to NYC from another state and was uncertain as to where I wanted to live. Dickse was very knowledgeable about all areas of the Manhattan market and provided excellent neighborhood tours. She found me an apartment that I loved, but there were several offers. Through her guidance and connection to the seller's broker I won the bidding war. I still live in the apartment, and Dickse and I continue to be friends. I absolutely recommend her services as a broker. - Jimmie W.

Dickse assisted my partner and I with purchasing an apartment in Midtown East. Through her connections in real estate she found us an apartment that wasn't officially listed on the market. She was very knowledgeable about the purchase process and always available when we needed her. She genuinely cares about her client's needs and is very detailed. It was a pleasure working with her. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy their dream home. - George D.

Finding an apartment in New York city is a very difficult process: the window is very short, the turn over very fast and the brokers, often very unreliable. Dickse Fitzgerald is a shining exception. When we contacted Dickse about a listing, she realized that if she showed it to us, we would have to pay a fee, but if she put us in contact directly with the Agent, we wouldn't have to. She literally turned down an opportunity to make money so that we could save some. THAT is the sign of a great broker and a good person. Whenever anyone asks us for a broker recommendation, we will send them to Dickse. When WE need another broker, we will go to Dickse. Why wouldn't you choose a broker that literally puts the customer's needs ahead of their own wallet. - Carolyn & Andrew B

Dickse was my broker when I purchased a condo in a new development in the Flatiron District on Fifth Avenue. With her knowledge of the real estate market, connections and negotiation skills, she was able to negotiate a good deal for the apartment. I'm very pleased with the service that Dickse provided me and have since recommended her to family and friends. - Jay K.

Dickse assisted me with the sale of my apartment and the purchase of a new one. She responded quickly to my emails and calls and was always available to answer my questions seven days a week, day or night. Dickse is very knowledgeable about the Manhattan real estate market and was excellent in navigating me through the process. It was a positive experience working with her and I cannot recommend her services more highly! - Palo Z.

Dickse Fitzgerald is a superb agent who knows New York City real estate, mortgages, and coop and condo application processes inside and out. Recently, she single-handedly assembled an extremely demanding coop board application, accepted upon initial submission with interview and purchase approval in short order thereafter. She is as personable as she is competent, a pleasure and reassurance to work with—a necessity. - Jeffrey D.

Dickse was my real estate broker when I bought an apartment on Park Avenue ten years ago. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market, reliable and goes above-and-beyond to help. That's why Dickse continues to be my real estate broker today and why I have also referred several of my friends to her. - Robert S.
