When I purchased the penthouse at 530 East 72nd my children and I thought we had found our dream home. Not only is the space spectacular but it has such an amazing history to it, from Frank Sinatra living there with Mia Farrow for 10 years to Andy Warhol naming it.

Unfortunately, the renovations took longer than expected and we ended up somewhere else. On 9-30-14 my 2nd exclusive with my 2nd broker expired and I still didn’t have a buyer for it. These were 2 top NYC firms and my cash outlay mounted as did my frustration.

A few weeks into October my daughter Kayla told me she wanted to set up a meeting with her friend from college and the President of the brokerage firm he worked for: Max Davis and Suzanne Miller of Empire State Properties. I was skeptical that a “smaller” brokerage firm could sell my property. But my daughter was persuasive and I agreed to the meeting.

Less than 30 days later I had an offer matching my $4.99M asking price. 30 days to get an offer at asking price after over two years on the market! I was stunned.

Ms. Miller personally oversaw all efforts for my apartment along with agent Senada Fici, who was absolutely tireless and driven to get my apartment sold. Focused and dedicated from day one, Empire State Properties’ determination and capabilities were unmatched by any of the “big” firms I had previously worked with. Ms. Miller believed in the value of my property and delivered fully on that value.

The amount of hard work Empire State Properties exerted to sell my property was overwhelming. It is because of them that I am sleeping better at night. Sincere thanks and appreciation to Suzanne, Senada, Max, and the rest of the Empire State Properties team!”

Corporate Housing Testimonials

“I enjoyed my stay at Executive Plaza immensely and would highly recommend the experience. The accommodation was superb, both in terms of quality and location. The Empire State Properties team were welcoming, efficient and always available to help. I really appreciated their warmth and enthusiasm – they run an excellent operation. Thanks to them, I will always have fond memories of my time in New York.”

“Dear Mr. Dennis Duden,

I would like to thank you and all the management workers for the professional skills that helped me to find this amazing apt in this great building. In particular, I want to thank directly:

  • Ms. Jonhson, as it took her just a few minutes to find me the perfect apartment. I was looking for a lot of opportunities here in Manhattan during this crazy “pandemic” time, but 150 West 51st was the first and the only option I checked personally, as I was able to get everything I needed considering also my budget.

  • Ms. Nikky (Designer), as she showed this beautiful apartment that she furnished in an amazing way. I had no doubt when I decided to sell most of my old furniture before moving here.

I am a CPA and I spend most of my days working, I love my job and I also love to deal with professional people who also love their job.

After only a few days of my living here, I felt I wanted to thank you all.”

–Andrea Luciani (Audit Manager, G.C. Consultants Inc)

“For the past 15 years The New York Times has rented apartments through Empire State Properties at Executive Plaza. We currently lease 12 apartments, and have maintained a relationship based on the professional, efficient, and courteous service we are afforded. The management of Empire State Properties goes out of their way to accommodate requests, and during Hurricane Sandy they were amazing. My overall experience with Empire State Properties is very positive – it is a pleasure to deal with them, and I highly recommend their services.”

– Barbara Baumgarten (New York Times, Senior Manager, News Department)

“We’ve partnered with Empire State Properties for more than a year and, at times, have had more than 45 units. In all that time, they’ve repeatedly proven their value in every aspect of our relationship.”

“Dear Mr. Duden – Though belated, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank and commend several people who made my stay at ESP a satisfying one.  I moved into unit 1124 in Mid-August while my apartment was being renovated and moved out in April.  Max Davis, my first contact with ESP, Kaimi Huang and Bek when things needed to get fixed were all helpful.  I want to make special note of Jayson Abrams who was very responsive, pleasant, helpful and professional whenever I spoke with him, had a request or needed assistance.  It was a pleasure to deal with him.  You have an excellent team at ESP.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend someone staying there.”

– Joy V. Silber

“The day we arrived in Manhattan, we were unsure what this city has in store for us. But when we set foot in Executive Plaza, we were relieved. The hospitality of all the staff and the great hotel management assured us that we are in good hands.

When we started apartment hunting, we had to roam from one point of the city to another, worrying about brokers and other hidden fees, worrying if the building is secured or not. But then we saw the “Open House” sign in our very own “Executive Plaza” and we were really happy and excited to find something good in this awesome and secure place.

And then we met you Heather. You are nothing but an angel to us. From showing us the perfect apartment to giving us an awesome rental deal (that too without any brokerage fee or hidden costs), you saved us!! We can’t thank you enough. You are not only a great real estate agent but an even better human being. We would love to keep in touch with you.

And lastly it is a great experience working with the Empire State Properties. Each and every team member are super courteous and helpful. We love you guys!! And for sure we would like to stay here beyond a year in Apt # 1126.”

– Rik Sinha, Senior, Advisory Services, Cybersecurity – Ernst & Young

“We housed people with Empire State Properties throughout 2017 and were very pleased with the apartments and customer service. The apartments were clean, well-furnished, and conveniently located just a few blocks from Times Square – close to offices and subway but far enough away to limit the lights/noise. We appreciated that the property managers went out of their way to make our people feel at home. We would recommend them for all your consultant’s needs. We are also housing our group with them again in 2018 and look forward to another pleasant/stress-free experience!”

“This is my second time staying at Executive Plaza during my business trip to New York and I’ve absolutely enjoyed my stay both times. They have made my paperwork very easy to handle, clean units and overall great service. The doorman is friendly, which is always a plus.”

– Employee, PwC

“I was very happy with the accommodation my office chose for me at Executive Plaza on West 51st and Broadway, June 2019.  The suite was very quiet, was clean and tidy, and it was a great location to explore the city – with everything at the doorstep. The doormen were really nice, and made it being in a big city feel more secure, and they helped a lot with acclimatization.  I would recommend this building to anyone who needs to have a base for work, but also wants to benefit from being in the middle of a huge cosmopolitan centre. Having Central Park so close was an extra bonus.”

– Jennifer J.
