Born and raised in New York, Jenet Levy knows every nook and cranny of this city. She has observed with great interest as neighborhoods, their boundaries and the trends of our real estate market have evolved and changed over time. Having been a renter, co-op owner/board member, and current townhouse owner, Jenet has experienced first-hand the experiences that buyers and sellers encounter. She is a prolific agent, having won several company awards and has been quoted in the press numerous times.

With an MSW from Columbia University and successful prior careers in social work and human resources, Jenet recognizes the inherent stress that can be involved in a transaction as significant as the buying or selling of a home, and dissipates it with her ability to take each client through each step with patience and understanding. Jenet is a skilled negotiator and a creative problem-solver. She navigates through any roadblocks that come up, and sees each buyer or seller through to the closing table and often beyond.

Tenacity is present in every aspect of Jenet’s life. She is a distance runner who has completed 7 marathons (6 NYC and one Philly) and has cycled through Spain, Belgium, Holland and Costa Rica. She is a gourmet cook and baker, a patchwork quilt artist, and has a passion for architecture and design.

Jenet is truly a wonderful agent. When I was buying my apartment, she was incredibly responsive, helpful, and kind. She was willing to meet with me at unusual times in order to meet my specific needs...As president of my co-op board, I can also say that I'm thrilled Jenet works in my building... she gets deals done quickly... she also is generous in using the connections in her network to ensure that buyers and sellers alike have access to everything they need, whether it's a good lawyer or a great contractor. I trust Jenet. The next time I buy or sell, she will unquestionably be the first and last agent I call. – Mike L., buyer
We have finally come back to earth after the exhilarating experience of making our dream of a place in New York City come true... without your knowledge of the market, your ability to deal with the constantly changing mortgage situation, your negotiating skills and your emotional support over a nerve-wracking four months, it simply wouldn't have happened... you were on top of everything, every day... - Sebastian V. & Ruth R., buyers
Jenet was extremely helpful during the search and purchasing process of my condo in Brooklyn. She has a wealth of knowledge about the housing market and provided much insight on various neighborhoods in the area. Jenet was very supportive and reliable during each step of the process and was always responsive to my concerns and questions. I have since recommended her to a close family member of mine and their experience with Jenet has been extraordinary as well. – Darin C., buyer
Having lived overseas for many years, when I decided to purchase a NYC apartment, I really needed guidance. Jenet impressed me very much with her market knowledge. She guided me through all the steps of purchasing my condo, informing and educating me all the way. She was extremely supportive, patient and always available for all my questions and concerns. Her research was always extensive, her follow-up and follow through were impressive. I could not have been in better hands. – Margaret M., buyer
Moving from California to New York was a daunting experience... Jenet was great at steering us through all the complicated processes, making sure we had all the information we needed. She gave us great advice on how to make our offer, on how to find a lawyer, and on what was required in each successive step. In the end, finding our condo seemed like the easiest part, and Jenet was always great about keeping us calm and moving forward. We are so very pleased that we were lucky enough to find her... – Eileen H., buyer
Jenet helped me find a unique property that I fell in love with. As a meticulous person myself, I appreciated all the care and attention that she put into each step of the process. Even when complications arose, she navigated me through to a successful closing. She was always in communication, always reachable, and supportive throughout. Her sense of humor and personal touch was the cherry on top. – Kevin C., buyer
...Honest, helpful, savvy, kind... Jenet helped me sell my co-op quickly without open houses, without the hassles, and all while my family and I were living there!... she took care of everything... constantly kept us informed... Jenet knows this business in and out and will work hard to get you what you need. I have never worked with a broker whom I felt had my family's interest at heart... she is my "go to" person for real estate... – Stephanie V., seller
Jenet helped my wife and I sell our condo at the end of 2013... Jenet was very professional and thorough... able to answer all our questions... knowledgeable about the real-estate market. She set up a plan of action and followed through on everything we discussed... something we appreciated a lot was how quickly she replied to our emails or calls. I felt like she was always working hard for us and kept us in the loop through it all. I would recommend Jenet for any real-estate transaction... we are currently using her to buy a new place... – Corey B., seller
...when we made the decision to sell our apartment, we contacted and met with agents from reputable firms... we were astonished by what we felt was an overall lack of understanding of what made our property unique. As soon as we spoke with Jenet, we knew she knew how to sell our condo. Since there were no comparable properties in the neighborhood, Jenet worked with an appraiser to calculate a formula by which she could accurately translate recent co-operative sales by square footage to our condominium's true value. In fact, Jenet took it upon herself to take on this challenge even before we met with her. It was clearly apparent that she had spent a great deal of time and effort working through every last detail to determine the appropriate asking price... in under nine weeks we were able to accept an all-cash offer... a much higher offer than what we were expecting. Jenet was then able to work with our lawyer, the buyer's agent and buyer's lawyer to get the apartment under contract and head into the final closing process. Afterwards, Jenet stayed in close touch and remained on top of details... – Ben P., seller
Jenet helped me sell my co-op quickly when I was in the hospital under difficult circumstances. She gave me sound advice on how to best show my coop, quickly held several open houses and was tough in negotiating the best price on my behalf. She also went the extra mile to help me with my movers and dispose of books and other personal items not being moved. I would highly recommend her. – Ellen S., seller

FiDi's Growing Food Scene - By Jenet Levy
Fidi's Growing Food Scene- By Jenet Levy

For many years the food scene in and around the Financial District was defined by quick lunch spots and a few steakhouses for the Wall Street crowd. But, not anymore! As the neighborhood continues to become more and more residential, the lunch and dinner options have greatly expanded.

Jenet Levy Tells Us Why Fidi Is Sizzling

As a native New Yorker, I have seen many neighborhoods change, develop and transform in all sorts of ways over the years. I have to say, though, that the metamorphosis of the Financial District over the last 10 years has truly been formidable.
