What Rachel King's Clients Say

Rachel did a wonderful job and was essential for selling our apartment.

Luiz G.

If you want your property sold professionally, quickly, and efficiently, there’s no one better than Rachel King. She’s a pleasure to work with and gets the job done!

Tiffany H.

It was a great pleasure to work with Rachel in purchasing my CO-OP. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire process. Response time was beyond amazing and helped guide me through the purchasing process from day 1.

Juan C.

We couldn't be happier with Rachel as she helped us navigate the process of buying our first home. Her knowledge of the industry in NYC, her responsiveness, and her patience with the process were greatly appreciated. She consistently showed an interest in us as her clients, and it truly felt like she was invested in our happiness with our new home she celebrated every milestone with u...

Joe T.

Rachel was great to work with. She always responded to our questions or requests quickly and was always willing to help with whatever our issue was. We looked at a number of townhouses and condos and she was able to recognize and direct us to the homes that would best suit us and to avoid the ones that wouldn't fit what we were looking for. She also wasn't afraid to ultimately recomme...

Jesse D.

This was our first home-purchasing experience and Rachel was an excellent partner during the process. She is knowledgeable about the market and the various neighborhoods we looked at and made sure she understood exactly what we were looking for from the start (which saves a lot of time!). Rachel was a great resource in helping us navigate offers and negotiations with the seller. She w...

Buyer

Rachel is knowledgeable, responsive, and brings a wealth of expertise that was incredibly valuable to me as a first time buyer. She spoke with me daily and made herself available to my questions in realtime. She was very involved in package prep and followed up with other parties involved to keep the process moving. She vouched for me in the process and educated me on what questions t...

Tartiana U.

She is so fast and so smart. We worked with her twice to buy and sell a house. We couldn’t find a house on the market so she looked offmarket and ended up coordinating us getting a custom home with a builder. She helped with every step and was a big advocate and negotiator for us. It was not easy. We ended up using her to sell a townhouse that wasn’t “high value” but she created such ...

Buyer

Rachel King is an efficient, resourceful, and trustworthy real estate professional next door. She successfully sold my house in a soft market. By the time my house was ready to be marketed on 9/29/2022, the Federal Reserve had raised the interest rate by 3% since early the same year. Potential home buyers were discouraged by the increased mortgage interest rate due to financing a pro...

Kimberly K.

Rachel was knowledgeable about the pace of the market and assessed the pricing with great accuracy. She was a pleasure to work with! Rachel managed to help me list my house while I wasn't home, doing all of the necessary preparations for staging and a photo shoot. My house went into contract, within one weekend, with several offers! Her negotiating skills were remarkable! In preparati...

Rhonda K.

My wife and I had a great experience working with Rachel. In an extremely unpredictable market during the pandemic with very sparse listings, we could finally find a wonderful house in a city that we love, and it was solely possible because of Rachel's imparted knowledge, her patience, and the strategic moves she's laid out for us. As first-time home buyers, our knowledge was somewhat...

Mohammad S.

As someone who knew nothing about purchasing an apartment in New York City, Rachel could not have made the process any easier for me. From day one, she walked me through all that I needed to know about buying, specifically the nuances of a co-op. She thoroughly explained everything to me in detail while also being extremely patient with all my questions. When it came time to put toget...

Sally A.

My husband and I recently bought our home in California through Rachel. We had been working on seeing open houses at a slow pace, and Rachel sent us great options for properties that met our specs every week. In the span of a few days, we went from casual house hunting to ready-to-buy when we found a home we loved. Rachel was able to accommodate all of our needs as far as seeing the h...

Emma R.

Rachel was referred to me by one of my oldest friends who's also a real estate agent. Rachel's amazing. smart, quick, knowledgeable, responsive. She's the type of person who gets stuff done, doesn't forget anything, and has your best interest in mind. She and her team were fabulous to work with. We got a house we love in an insanely competitive market. I'd recommend her to anyone look...

Amy M.

Rachel was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. I was purchasing a home for the first time and had major questions regarding the process. She was on top of all the details and made herself available to have actual conversations.

Teresa A.

Rachel King is a truly elite agent, who knows exactly how to win her clients their dream home! It's because of Rachel's creativity and brilliance in negotiating, that we were able to beat cash offers in this tough market. She's whipsmart, enthusiastic, and fun to work with. She also comes with a great network of people in the real estate field: lawyers, mortgage brokers, etc. We trust...

Buyer

Rachel King is the first realtor we have worked with in 23 years. We were moving from the West Coast to the East Coast. We felt particularly lucky to have found her as she was experienced in both the Bay Area and New York City markets. She helped us both buy a home and sell a home. She was the consummate professional in both roles— friendly, organized, proactive, highly responsive, kn...

C. Fucigna

Rachel represented my mother in connection with the sale of her late sister's co-op apartment in Queens. She was absolutely fantastic in working with us, the prospective buyer, and the co-op board to ensure a smooth transaction. She was diligent, responsive, patient, and attentive - despite the additional complications involved in an estate sale. We give Rachel our highest recommendat...

Vikram B.

Rachel helped us buy our first home and was extremely helpful. Being new to the process, we wanted to make sure we weren't missing anything and that we were making the right decision. Rachel helped us find some good comparables that made us feel happy about our choice and also helped guide us through the home buying process. We are extremely happy with our choice and would recommend R...

Marc S.

Rachel did an amazing job of helping me find and buy my first condo. She was very proactive in helping me hone down my must haves and showed me a wide array of places, eventually settling on a place that I am now extremely happy with. She was very responsive throughout the whole process and very patiently answered all of my questions and addressed my concerns.

Adam S.

We knew Rachel via a friend. Rachel is the best agent we have ever worked with. She went above and beyond to help us identify, evaluate, and purchase a dream home. Our current home has everything we can hope for. Rachel is also very understanding of all kinds of scenarios and helps us dissolve pressing issues (e.g. last minute loan questions). Buying a home is always a wild ride; you ...
