Tel: (917) 442-0426
Cell: (212) 381-6513

Felicia De Chabris has been with Halstead for eighteen years as an Associate Broker. She has repeatedly been a member of the 'Producers Council & Platinum Circle', a select group of leading brokers. In addition to her commendable track record representing individual buyers and sellers, she has worked as the Sales Director on many large, successful developments in Manhattan. With a degree in Interior Design, Felicia brings a discerning eye to all of her projects. She gladly shares her creative approach by staging properties for her clients, increasing their value and curb appeal.

Repeatedly Felicia has been praised by buyers and sellers for her warmth and integrity. Sensitive to all factors involved in the purchase of a home or investment, she ensures that each individual transaction is completed smoothly and pleasantly. In addition, as a certified property manager she represents a number of international investors in their Manhattan purchases.

Prior to working in real estate, Felicia started her career as an Interior Designer. However, after moving to New York she became an accomplished ceramic artist and started a business. Her work sold to a variety of commercial clients and museum stores including Barneys, Henri Bendel, The Guggenheim Museum Shop, and numerous others. She also exhibited her work in New York City as well as national and international galleries.

Having lived in a number of countries growing up, today Felicia considers New York home. With a keen interest in art, architecture, and design she has personally bought and gut renovated four of her own properties and actively participated on co-op boards, block associations as well as local community organizations. She currently lives in a lovely landmark townhouse in Harlem where she has raised her two children

“I wanted to share our absolute gratitude to the wonderful professional who has spearheaded the purchase of an investment property in Brooklyn: Ms. Felicia De Chabris. Without Felicia’s unerring dedication, know-how and connections, my husband and I could not have been able to purchase our limestone gem. Felicia’s acumen for business enabled us to place ourselves ahead of others while making a competitive offer in a considerably tight market. For those unfamiliar with the status quo in the New York real estate arena: many of the buyers are all cash investors ready to purchase properties ‘site unseen’ - a lingo I have learned from Felicia. Felicia placed us on top of the list of such investors. Within a period of six months, our investment property has gained 33% in value (a smaller building in similar condition on the same block sold for 33% more than what we paid).

Felicia’s genius for renovation and design has helped us choose the right structure. At first sight, Felicia was able to assess the building conditions and visualize useful as well as aesthetic alterations. In addition to all of the above, Felicia’s warm and candid personality made it a real pleasure to spend time looking at potential properties together. I could add that the single drawback to concluding our sale has been missing the many conversations on art and architecture that we enjoyed during our rendezvous in New York.” – Ami M.

“One of our most enjoyable business experiences has been working with Felicia de Chabris in connection with the acquisition and management (including rental) of high-end residential apartments in New York City. This is a project that began several years ago and has continued to date. Throughout, Felicia has exhibited extreme professionalism, skillfully blended with practicality, an in-depth knowledge of the market and an inherent understanding of her client’s needs and desires. Felicia’s outgoing and engaging personality makes her an asset in negotiations and her sales and marketing talents have caused her to achieve excellent results on our behalf. We most highly recommend her.” - R. L. Seaman, Esq., Seaman & Wainwright, LLP
“We hired Felicia as Sales Manager for One Ten Third, Toll Brothers first Manhattan development. She proved to be a great asset and one of the most professional and accomplished brokers I’ve worked with. Throughout the sales process her enthusiasm and knowledge made buyers comfortable that they were purchasing a beautiful home and a sound investment. Sales were completed promptly at greater returns than projected. Felicia combines all the skills necessary to complete a successful transaction as well as being warm and charismatic. I continue to refer her to my personal contacts.” – David von S., Senior Vice President
“Felicia De Chabris made my buying experience a dream. First and foremost she listened to what I was looking for both in location, as well as specific requirements. She was able to sort through a myriad of choices, narrow down the search and present me with wonderful options. Felicia was invaluable in the bidding process assuring that I got the best possible price. I was even able to get some furniture thrown in with the deal. She nursed me through the coop process and made our purchase a seamless transaction. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable and genuinely cares for her clients’ needs and desires. Her charming personality makes her pleasant to be around, thus making the arduous task of buying an apartment in Manhattan a pleasure.” - Linda G., MA, CCC, Speech Language Pathologist
“I can't say enough positive things about working with Felicia and Judith. They are consummate real estate professionals who approach every transaction with creativity and a strong knowledge of the local market. It is these elements, among others, which I believe helped sell my condominium in record-time during a tough market. First, Felicia and Judith took time to examine each aspect of my unit to see how it could be improved for staging purposes. They gave me practical suggestions which had a big impact. Additionally, they took time to ensure that photographs were taken perfectly from every angle. Armed with a great listing, they set out to show my unit. Within the first day, I received multiple offers on my sale. During this time, they both carefully guided my through their recommendations on how to proceed so that I would not only get the best price, but also ensure that I would close on my transaction. I look forward to working with them again on the sale of my next apartment!” - Nimita
