Ranked in the top 4.5% of all Real Estate Brokers in New York State, Elaine Tross is known for her outstanding negotiation skills and attention to detail. She was awarded the Certified Negotiation Expert designation, bestowed only to 1% of all agents nationally. These qualities and others make Elaine a go-to agent for both domestic and international clients interested in residential and commercial properties throughout New York City.

Clients praise her sound advice and knowledge of the nuances involved with purchasing in the City. Her professionalism and down to earth mentality has gained her loyalty amongst her clients. As an out of State client pointed out “As difficult as it is to navigate real estate transactions in New York, Elaine Tross was a perfect fit for us. We could not have done it without her.”

Elaine enthusiastically markets exclusives through a prominent Internet presence and well-targeted direct mail campaigns. Clients simultaneously selling a home while purchasing a new one often rely on her to handle both transactions and ensure results. Elaine secures their ideal home through careful listening, seasoned market knowledge and personalized service.

Elaine loves walking around New York City. What looks like a leisurely stroll is really a walk of discovery of what’s going on in Manhattan neighborhoods. It’s a gathering of information that serves her clients well “I have the eyes of the agent.” The more I know, the more I can share with my clients.

A few years ago, circumstances led her to become an expert in another area of the New York real estate market. Elaine loves pets and was surprised when she went apartment hunting at how difficult it was to find buildings that would accept Max, her dog. “There was such a lack of options.” Elaine turned around a negative into a positive and began focusing on pet-friendly real estate and learned the laws and rules governing pets. She even created a web site www.petfriendlymanhattanrealestate.com. It’s where pet owners can obtain information such as dog run locations, nearby veterinarians and daycare centers and much more.

Raised in charming Savannah, Georgia, Elaine has the Southern charm, but is not shy about her tough negotiating skills. Another client wrote, “I would most enthusiastically recommend her to any friend purchasing an apartment in New York.” Of course, when it comes to Max and other pets, she sheds her toughness and becomes all mush.

“As a third year associate at a major NYC law firm, you can imagine that I have no time to call my own. So when my financial resources got to the point where I could buy an apartment a friend recommended that I consider Elaine. What a wonderful experience. She found me the perfect place, under budget, and to add icing to the cake she's become a good friend and mentor to me. Thank You Elaine for your business acumen and friendship.” – Barney F.
I've worked with many brokers over the years buying and selling various properties. Ms Tross is exemplary. She's able to focus in on my needs without wasting my time on useless trivia. Elaine is a true professional whom I totally trust - Richard T.
“Elaine is the fairy godmother of the NYC real estate market. I met Elaine Fall 2014. She asked what I was looking for in a home and started showing me places based on my desires and my budget and showed me properties both above and below my budget [to] educate me on the market. When it came time for me to put an offer in, she guided me through the entire process: the offer, the bank financing, the coop paperwork and interview… She worked with my challenging business schedule to make appointments in the time I had allotted. While I knew she had other clients, she always made me feel like I was her only client... I would highly recommend Elaine as a knowledgeable, thoughtful and creative real estate agent.” - Wendy S.
"I've known Elaine Tross for almost two decades. She has assisted in the buying and selling of several apartments in NYC for me, and others for my family. To say she is diligent and hardworking would be an understatement. She represents her clients professionally and tirelessly. It is obvious from the start that she will not stop until she finds something you like. And, no matter how long it takes, she never loses her positive outlook. When it comes to the dreaded board proposals that we all have to submit, she's the best. Every "t" is crossed and "I" is dotted. I would eagerly recommend Elaine to anyone wishing to find a home and/or office in Manhattan." - Rosemary D.
