Featured by the Wall Street Journal and Real Trends as "Top Real Estate Agent in New York"

With over 20 years in the business of real estate, Astrid is one of Halstead's highest grossing brokers with well over $500 million in sales. Astrid also has an extensive record of very high-end rentals.

Astrid works with private clients either buying or selling homes for their personal use or for investment as well as with corporate investors who buy and renovate or develop properties for sale or rental. The latter seek her out because of her knowledge of the market and for her professional advice and sales acumen. Her long experience in the business enables her to provide sound advice to her clients equipping them to navigate the complexities of New York's Coop boards. The bulk of her business is based on long-term relationships of trust with her clients who know that she is looking out for their best interests. She estimates that 90 percent of her business is due to repeat clients and referrals. Her sales and rentals have ranged from condo and coop apartments, through brownstones and townhouses, to lofts and multi-unit buildings purchased primarily for investment.

In addition to New York City, Astrid covers high-end sales and rentals in The Hamptons where she has a home. She has advised clients on the purchase, rental, renovation, construction and sale of homes.

Astrid works with a small team of associates to ensure that her clients' needs are tended to 24/7 – a factor that is very important for her large number of international clients most of whom reside in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. She says:

"My clients demand, and have the right to demand, service and support at all times - through the weekend and late in the evenings. I ensure that I provide my clients reliable, timely service with unparalleled attention to detail."

Astrid is known for her encyclopedic knowledge of buildings in Manhattan's dynamic and constantly changing market. Drawing on Halstead's extensive information systems, she provides her clients with sound advice on pricing. She says that:

"Determining the correct price is of crucial importance when either buying or selling a property. Failure to be realistic often leads to disappointment. Sound analysis of comparators that have traded based on real information is always of crucial importance to achieving our goals."

Astrid understands the importance of effective marketing:

"Halstead has the best marketing team in the business and I customize a marketing strategy for each property based on its characteristics, focusing mainly on print and web-based publications that have wide readerships, professional photography, attractive and professional videos for high-end properties and an assortment of print advertising including brochures. I am also a believer in virtual staging to provide clients with a better sense of the potential of properties."

She monitors the performance of each form of marketing to ascertain whether it is reaching the correct clientele and adjusts her approach accordingly.

Before coming to the real estate business, Astrid was a partner in a successful international consulting firm. She has a master's degree in Public Health (MPH) from Columbia University in New York, has travelled all over the world, and has lived and worked in Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Sudan, Thailand and the U.S.
