I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Chandra this past spring while purchasing my coop in the West Village. Anyone who has bought a coop in NYC will understand how daunting of a task it can be. Chandra was wonderful and knowledgeable. She helped me negotiate a very fair price as well as put me in touch with a wonderful mortgage broker and attorney. Chandra helped mediate all aspects. She went above and beyond the call of duty while always being very pleasant and caring. She clearly is very passionate about her career and very dedicated. I recommend Chandra highly if you are considering buying in Manhattan.

My husband and I have been working with Chandra for about 6 months so far, and it has been a true pleasure to work with her as an agent. NYC can be a very frustrating real estate market, but Chandra helps to make the process a little more enjoyable, and a little less stressful. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, which makes us feel very comfortable in her recommendations. She understands the type of home we''re looking for, is attentive to our needs as buyers, and helps to keep us focused in our search. Chandra is enthusiastic and professional, and I would definitely recommend working with her.
As a native New Yorker with 30 years under my belt and more apartment searches than I can count on two hands, I can say without reservation that Chandra Cadogan was by far the best broker I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Before Chandra, a typical apartment hunt experience meant waiting hours for a returned phone call and days spent looking at places that barely met my search criteria. However, once I started working with Chandra, I learned what it meant to have my time respected (arguably the rarest commodity in this town) - phone calls were returned within minutes and there was always a wrap-up email at the end of the day to look forward to. Chandra made me feel like I was her top priority: an indescribable feat in this crazy expensive city where I''m sure the commission she earned was pitiful by comparison. Never once did I feel Chandra''s frustration or anxiety when my search took longer than an average client, and believe me, I am not the average client. After renting for years, I was finally ready to buy and I knew that I would have to have at least 90% of my wish list checked off before I would watch my life savings disappear into a 550 square ft humble abode. Through months of searching, negotiating, and the occasional NYC apartment heartbreak (though no fault of her own), Chandra was patient, kind, and always kept a positive attitude. Her professionalism was met with equal parts down-to-earth attitude and an easy going nature. I literally do not know how I would have survived this process without her and come out owning a glorious piece of NYC property that is absolutely perfect for me. For all of these reasons and more, it takes me no more than 10 seconds to forward along her contact information whenever I am asked by friends or colleagues. Shamelessly, I have even been known to intercept a conversation between strangers about a "good NYC broker recommendation" with the bold but 100% accurate statement, "I don''t have someone good, I have someone outstanding."
Kiss your days of frustration goodbye and say hello to the NYC apartment of your dreams with the help of your fabulous new broker Chandra: she works hard so you don''t have to.

I initially worked with Chandra Cadogan when I was looking for a rental apartment. She was extremely effective. I explained what I was looking for at the outset and she stuck to the brief and worked tirelessly to fine everything available that met my requirements. She really seems to care about her clients and it shows in her approach to the role.
Six months later when I was looking to buy I went straight back to Chandra. Again she understood my requirements and worked hard to find everything that met what I was looking for. Again, she really went the extra mile with research, even seeing some of the places on her own to pre-vet them for me. Once we found a place, Chandra stayed engaged through the sale and contract process and has followed up since to see how we have settled in.
Before doing renovations, I sought Chandra''s opinion on what the impact of the renovations might be on the market value of the apartment. Again, she did solid research and produced a helpful set of data. It goes without saying that when I sell this apartment, I will immediately go to Chandra.

Recently I had to find someone trustworthy and responsible to sublet my apartment. Recalling that Chandra was very helpful, extremely guiding and available during my original search for an apartment, although I was persuaded by a chance deal to take another place, I was very much satisfied with her services. And so I decided to ring her again when the time came for me to find someone to sublet my apartment and within no time she had a suitable candidate. Without hardly more of an effort than a phone call we completed the deal most amicably and easily. She is very competent at what she does and has a particular pleasant demeanor that makes the process all the more enjoyable.

The quality of service, the professionalism, and the expertise that we''ve received from Chandra have been unmatched in our experience. She has the innate ability to present options that are appropriate and that we never would have found independently. She is excellent at managing our expectations, always provides honest feedback, and makes a typically overwhelming process much less stressful.
