Fran Kaback is a 27 year veteran of the New York City real estate market who has seen every market, up down, sideways, and in between. She prides herself on helping people meet their goals with uncompromising integrity, loyalty, and diligence. She is available to her clients and customers virtually around the clock and every day of the year no matter where she is or what’s going on, and they put their trust in her time and time again with their most valued possessions, their homes. Her level of personal service that is virtually unheard of in this day and age and her vast knowledge of the New York Real Estate market, not only in Manhattan, coupled with her ability to think on her feet and outside the box in tough negotiations is what she attributes to her consistent record of success. Almost all of her business is repeat and referral driven.

Fran will always go the extra mile to take care of the small details so that you don't have to. She has stuck with buyers for years helping them to find the perfect home and with some has been able to accomplish this the first time out. Whichever it is, whatever the price range, it does not matter. For her sellers, she will be honest and realistic about how to price your home and will NEVER inflate her estimate just to get you to list with her. What matters most is that you are happy with the outcome of your experience and tell your friends.

Fran was a consistent top producer at a mid-sized company for 18 years before joining Halstead in 2014. She looks forward to continuing to serve all of your real estate needs. Choosing the right broker whose integrity shines through every step of the way and can seamlessly navigate the nuances of today’s market is crucial for a positive outcome.

Fran is simply the best. Her combination of years of experience, tremendous market knowledge and ultimate pin point focus on getting her clients what they want has made her the absolute only choice for us when it comes to NYC real estate. We have also recommended her to friends who are just as pleased as we have been. - David K.
I live in Austria so as a first time NYC buyer, I was looking for someone who had patience and didn’t mind explaining two or three times how a real estate purchase functions. Fran Kaback was just the person. She was always there every time I had a question and was extremely helpful in providing insights into choosing the right property. I will certainly use her again and am happy to recommend her to anyone trying to make their way through the NYC real estate market. - David A.
I have known Fran Kaback for 27 years. Her first position in NYC Real Estate was with my firm J.I Sopher & Co. which at the time was the exclusive agent for 80% of the new hi- rises in Manhattan. Fran was consistently one of our top producers. Her dedication to her work was outstanding and was superseded only by her integrity and loyalty to her clients. Even though she is a city broker, I was thrilled that she was able to travel out to East Hampton to represent me on a recent purchase there. Her ultimate success in the industry is certainly no surprise to me. - Hank S.
I live in Singapore but have property investments in NYC. I have used Fran Kaback for the last couple of years to buy, sell and rent my NYC apartments. I find Fran to be extremely hard working, honest and reliable and she has been a delight to work with. She always has her clients best interests at heart and to me , that is a gem of a characteristic with a realtor. As I am not living in US, and although I have a management company she has always been my "eye" on the ground for my property investments. I trust her implicitly to work in my best interests always. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is interested in buying or renting NYC apartments as she is one broker that goes way above and beyond for her clients. - Josephine Y.
This is the 3rd condo property in three years that Fran has helped me buy and/or sell. We have done well over $3 million in transactions. She is a superstar! My advice to you is to retain Fran and then LISTEN to what she tells you. How you price your place, what you should offer for a potential place and how to navigate the entire process. Fran will guide you and you simply cannot go wrong. - Dave A.
If you're looking for the best of the best, then look no further! I was given Fran's name by a very close friend and I couldn't be more grateful. I bought my first Co-op almost 1year ago and Fran was there to help me every step of the way. She is 100% honest, professional, thorough, and always has YOUR best interest in mind. Whether I had a question or wanted to see the apartment again (and again), she always made herself available. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. You truly won't find better than Fran! - Lauren D.
Fran Kaback is an amazingly professional, thorough, and empathetic real estate broker. From the first step of making an offer through the closing, she guided me through the very difficult and complex process of buying a coop apartment in New York, while living in Oregon. Fran was both in the moment and one step ahead of everyone else throughout my purchase and I could not have succeeded without her advice and support. Plus, we did all this in record time! I recommend Fran wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to get a real estate transaction done well and fast. She also has a lot of common sense and a great sense of humor. - Naomi Z., PHD
Fran is an excellent agent. She really knows her stuff and was on top of things every step of the way. Her advice regarding how to present ourselves to the co-op board was invaluable. As we moved towards the closing she was calming when we were anxious, informative when we were unsure, and encouraging when we would get impatient. All in all, she was pretty much the total package. We feel lucky to have had her as our real estate agent! - Arnie and Tanya R.
Fran was instrumental in helping us purchase our first apartment. We were thrilled that she was able to achieve what we thought was impossible by convincing the developer to allow us to switch into an even more desirable unit that came available after we had already signed a contract signed a contract for a different one. She is an excellent, honest broker who works extremely hard, is immediately responsive, and always puts her clients' needs first. - Swathi and Michael
