Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

“My goal as an agent is ultimately to help people. Aside from all the business aspects of this field, I strive to provide comfort and relief for my clients during the stressful period of finding a home, and to show them that the experience doesn’t have to be a complete nightmare!”

Lena grew up in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn plus has lived in Boerum Hill, Park Slope and Kensington. She works in every neighborhood in between Midwood and Greenpoint, but focuses on Ditmas Park, Windsor Terrace and Kensington. Her familiarity with Brooklyn’s geography and culture has been a huge asset to her clients seeking the ideal home for their needs.

Clients are continually impressed with the high level of research and planning Lena does in order to show them many suitable properties during an appointment, and with her ability to match them accurately with their perfect space. Sincerity and honesty are extremely important values in all her customer interactions. Diligence, organization and problem solving are also natural traits that keep the search and the deal moving smoothly.
