Board Certified New York Residential Specialist
Since 2004, Nora Ariffin has excelled as a top-producing broker who earned glowing accolades for her impressive sales performance. She went from Rookie of the Year at Halstead Property to Vice President then Senior Vice President; plus, she won coveted awards like the prestigious Producer’s Council, Platinum and Gold Circle 2010, and a place in the Top 5% companywide. Her expert skills and stylish look also got Nora featured as one of “9 Women Who Master Power and Style” in Oprah Winfrey’s popular “O” Magazine, recognizing her success in placing clients in the most exclusive apartments and effectively navigating deals in “New York City's ruthless housing market.”
Nora’s greatest reward, however, is the referrals and repeat business from a high-profile clientele who appreciate the exemplary service, discretion and dedication with which she handles their discerning needs. What sets Nora apart is her unique approach guiding clients seamlessly through the sale or purchase process and empowering them with pertinent information that results in smart decisions. “I'm here to educate, not force a deal,” Nora says. “My reputation is at stake, and my role is to be every client's advocate; their ambassador.”
A Manhattan resident for over 22 years, Nora is driven by boundless energy and passion for New York that shines through in her work. Her vast market knowledge, expert service and sharp negotiating skills arm every client with what's needed to make their deals an inevitable success.
“Coming into this with absolutely no idea of how NYC real estate worked, Nora took time to clearly explain the facts and continually stay in touch with updates. Her knowledge and expertise helped me understand all aspects of the market, and her flexible, patient and no-pressure approach made a normally stressful and frustrating experience pleasant and exciting. Nora’s connections and professionalism enabled me to purchase my dream apartment.” ~ Naomi L.
No matter what she's set her mind on, Nora has always enjoyed great accomplishments. She hit the runways of Paris at age 17, and achieved international fame as the first Asian model to represent ‘ALLURE’ for Chanel Perfume. When Seventh Avenue took notice, she moved to Manhattan and became one of the faces of Cover Girl cosmetics and L’Oreal Feria Hair worldwide, appearing three stories high on a Times Square billboard. Nora also completed professional actor training in NYC that led to many roles in national commercials, and the leading role in two feature films, one internationally acclaimed. Just as she took the world of modeling and entertainment by storm, marketing herself to success, Nora does the same in real estate with the ingenuity, tenacity and creativity that help clients excel.
Fluent in English, French and Malay, Nora was born and raised in Singapore. She has lived in Europe and South Africa, as well as San Francisco. Nora brings to her work a worldly perspective, natural ability to relate to clients of all cultures, and strong local knowledge of the city she loves so dearly.
