Houda Idafar – Owner/Investor

Carol Staab, is my real estate broker for the past 9 years. O own two luxury three-bedroom units, one at the Riverhouse, at 2 River Terrace and another one at the Element at 555 W 59th Street. Carol always secures highly qualified tenants and negotiates excellent rents for me, in every type of market for both my investment units. In addition, Carol has rented out my units with very little or no lag time between tenants. I have a steady flow of rental income. Her very aggressive and strategic marketing plan gets the job done every time.

Carol just secured a new tenant for me at my 2 River Terrace unit in this very challenging Covid rental market where vacancy rates are at record highs and the rental prices have dropped to their lowest levels in ten years. The tenant is very well qualified and relocating from the Midwest. She was able to achieve an excellent rental price and as well as have the tenant pay the brokerage fee.

Recently, Carol recommended that I switch attorneys because my attorney was slow to respond. I now have a great real estate attorney who is very responsive and specializes in landlord/ tenant law.

Carol has a concierge level of service. She has a curated list of vendors who are very well qualified yet charge reasonable fees. When it is time to turn one of my rental units around for the next tenant, Carol hires the painter and the rest of her prep team who do an excellent job in a very timely manner.

Carol makes my life easier, especially since I am an out of the country investor. She checks-in with my tenants and ensures that their stays are going well. She promptly responds to their calls and resolves and problem that they may incur as well as schedule apartment repairs or items that need replacement.

I highly recommend Carol Staab to rent out and help you manage your investment condo. When the day comes that I decide to sell my units I will hire Carol to market and Sell them.
