Wendy Cortese employs integrity, discretion, and care when working with clients who want to rent, buy, or sell a home. Her competitive negotiating skills and expansive knowledge of the market will keep you well informed while she guides you from searching and bidding for a home to a successful closing.

Wendy began her real estate career working with a top performing broker at a luxury real estate firm on the Upper East Side, selling high-end townhouses, co-ops and condos. She went on to work in residential markets ranging from Manhattan to Williamsburg and picturesque brownstone Brooklyn. Wendy’s grandmother, who owned a boutique firm in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, inspired her early appreciation for architecture and the art of the deal.

When making one of the most significant transactions of your life, it is crucial to work with a real estate professional who puts clients’ interests first.

“We were so lucky to have Wendy Cortese as our broker. From our very first conversations about purchasing an apartment, to alerting us and scheduling open houses, to helping us through the contract process, Wendy guided us into home-ownership. Simply put, I doubt we would have purchased an apartment at all without Wendy as our ally and adviser. At every turn, Wendy was our best advocate and confidant.” – Matt B. and Masha K., buyers
“I just wanted to thank you for all that you have done. We really couldn’t have asked for more from our broker as you have gone way above and beyond, both with the professionalism and how kind you have been to us.” - Andy and Jacqueline P., sellers
“It was great working with you and obviously I am in love with the apartment which is the ultimate goal.” - Michelle K., tenant
"Wendy helped us find our first apartment, and she made a very stressful process go as smoothly as we could have hoped. She helped us through multiple bidding wars and gave us a really good sense of what was reasonable in this market. Wendy was also helpful in walking us through the overall process of buying an apartment, going through a co-op interview, and getting a mortgage. She referred us to great people for the various things one needs when buying an apartment, and she was always quick to respond to our many, many emails. We really trusted Wendy's opinion and advice. Having her with us during the home-buying process made us much more sure of our decisions. And now we love our first place!" - Matt and Andrea D., buyers
