Testimonials

"Olga is a true professional. She is very skilled at her job and follows up with everyone involved in the sale to ensure that everything is moving along as quickly as possible. We hired Olga to help us sell a co-op for an estate. Prior to the sale of the co-op, she helped us tremendously by putting us in contact with different people who assisted us in clearing out the apartment and getting it ready to show. Everything went very smoothly and efficiently. During the process of the sale - from prospective buyers to dealings with the co-op board to the actual closing - Olga was always in contact with us and informed as to what needed to be done next. We closed on the sale with both parties being content and satisfied. My experience with Olga has been stellar and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor."

"There are no words to describe Olga. She is warm, thorough and responsive, while still being aggressive and tough. It is not easy to find a savvy broker who is tireless and persistent but also comes across as calm and in control. I highly recommend her to anyone. Her referrals and resources are unparalleled and she makes the process painless, truly. I had to sell my mother's home of 48 years in Bayside and Olga found me a fabulous estate sale person as well as a terrific attorney. Her husband Roman is a fabulous complement to her real estate team."

My oldest daughter used Olga about 10 years ago when looking to purchase a coop in Briarwood. We were all impressed with her knowledge and ability to find her an excellent mortgage broker, a coop that fit her financially, and a lawyer for the final process. A few months ago, when our youngest daughter was looking for a coop in the same area we remembered how good Olga was. So we were able to track her down, and asked her if she could do the same for our youngest. The difference this time is that we were much more involved in the day to day happenings. Olga found my daughter an excellent coop right away, that fit all the requirements we gave her. But far more than that, she steered us brilliantly thru the price negotiations, the coop required paperwork, the mortgage broker. Her attention to detail, and her continuous updates, her ability to calm us down during the ups and downs of the process is absolutely 2nd to none. We have purchased 3 houses, sold 2, purchased a coop for ourselves and been involved in the purchase of 1 coop each for each daughter and never had a real estate agent come close to the quality, caring, attention to detail and professionalism of Olga. If anyone wants to contact me directly I have no issue with sharing the details of her work.

I was referred to Olga through a friend of mine who is a realtor.  I live in Virginia and had a property in NY.  My mom had passed away the previous year and I was in desperate need to sell my property, as I could not afford keeping it anymore.  Olga was incredible!  She got me an offer 1 week after putting the property on the market.  Of course I had to do everything from Virginia and Olga was on top of everything for me.  I did not have to come to NY until it was time for closing.  Olga and her team took care of everything and made this process seamless.  I really could not have done it without her.  I truly would recommend her to everyone I know.  If you want to buy or sell a property, she is the go-to person I would recommend in a heartbeat!

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding services during the recent sale of my co-op inForest Hills. Your assistance in finding me immediate, well-qualified buyers and negotiating a fair sale price proved extremely helpful.
Additionally, without your expertise and persistence I do not think we could have gotten the management company to approve the sale as quickly as they did. Celeste and I are fortunate to have been referred to you, and we are happy to act as a reference should anyone inquire. Please keep in touch-and thank you again!

My mother became ill and it quickly became terminal. I realizedI would have to sell her apartment. I had no idea what agent or broker to contact because I was not familiar with the Queens market. I spoke with the building manager and he told me that the only broker to consider calling is Olga Zakinova. That Olga and her team not only get the job done but do most of the sales in the building.

I called Olga and we set up a meeting at my mother's apartment.. Olga answered all of my questions and immediately set up what needed to be done to get the apartment listed. I was impressed with her knowledge of the building, market and the steps I needed to take. I even put my mother on the phone to speak with Olga and she told me she wanted me to work with her. Before I knew it the apartment was photographed and listed and I had offers and a qualified buyer lined up.

I can honestly say that the entire experience was handled quickly, efficiently, aggressively and professionally. Olga advised me every step of the way and the process was smooth. I just had the closing and know that I would not be at the closing if it wasn't for Olga Zakinova and her talented team.

We would recommend you Olga to anyone looking to buy or sell!

We first got in touch with Olga through Trulia. We set up an appointment with her to view a couple of apartments in Briarwood which were in our budget and would accommodate our burgeoning family. She was very quick to respond and understood what we needed. During the viewing, she chatted with us and realized that we lived in Jackson heights and that we would like to stay in the neighborhood but could not find anything that met our needs and budget. Olga immediately told us about an apartment in our area that is perfect for us. She sprang into action and got us a viewing of the apartment that very evening.

That apartment was everything that we wanted, we made an offer on the spot and Olga told us our offer is accepted just 30 minutes after we made the offer! She is excellent throughout the whole process; recommending us lawyers, giving us tips on how best to present our board application, and constantly being in touch with everyone to ensure that the process is moving along.

Olga is wonderful to work with and we are so happy that we now have an apartment to call our own. This would not be possible without Olga's hard work. We will definitely recommend Olga to anyone looking for an agent who will work tirelessly for you!

Dear Olga,

I am amazed at how quickly you were able to sell my co-op apt! You advised on how to de-clutter my unit for presentation in a manner that was encouraging and not in the least way demeaning, and it proved to be just what I needed to do.
Your professional and business manner is rarely exhibited nowadays and I found it very refreshing to come across someone who really takes pride in their job. I appreciate how you advised me on what documentations would be needed on the Unit, thereby avoiding on my behalf any last minute surprises.
Hiring you as my realtor has proved to be the best decision that I could have made to sell my apt, in a timely manner. There were people in my building that had their units on the market for 4-6 months. I had expected to go down the same road, yet you were able to provide a qualified buyer within two weeks of our initial meeting, and three days prior to the unit to be placed on-line for listing. If that wasn’t speedy enough, we were in contract within the 3rd week of the buyers seeing the unit.
I want to thank you for your handling of this sell, and will encourage anyone that I know that asks about a realtor in Queens to contact you!
All the best

"We started off just like a million other renters, looking at website after website, calling number after number to set up so many different appointments. Our search ended when we came across Olga and Roman. They were like a breath of fresh air. They made our renting experience be exactly how I felt it should be, an enjoyable one.

They showed us exactly what we wanted, we fell in love with the place and they made even the next part, the lease agreement part, an easy one. That was the part I was most worried about, getting all the paperwork together, but Olga and Roman told us what we needed, we brought it and that was that.

From the moment I met them my renting experience became a breeze, a great enjoyable experience for me to look back on. They are professionals in every sense of the word.

A lot of my friends and family are asking me; Where did you find such a great place? I gladly tell them who made it happen, so that I can give my friends and family the same awesome experience I was so fortunate to receive."

From Two Happy Renters,Priscilla & Dioni Perez

"Overall, Olga was a pleasure to work with. She is extremely professional while still being very personable and understanding.Her guidance over the entire process was very much appreciated and ultimately lead to a very smooth transaction.

I would gladly recommend her based on her obvious experience in the business and her integrity, which is what sets her apart from many."

Thanks again!

Dear Olga,

As you know I have been in the NY real estate game for many years. When my good friend called to ask for help in selling her mother's apartment in Queens I was eager BUT also knew I was not qualified to sell in this geographic area. I know nothing about Queens. We interviewed some decent brokers BUT in the end they just did not feel like a good fit for me and my friend's needs. So I called the managing agent for the building where the unit was and asked for "the best broker with the most successful track record" in the building. Without hesitation the managing agent said, "Olga Zakinova." From our first conversation I knew in my heart you were exactly the person I wanted to sell my friend's apartment. I was not disappointed when we met. And to say you delivered is an understatement. You not only sold her place in LESS THAN THREE WEEKS...and let me add, it was definitely NOT in move in condition and this is a horrendous selling market...you further provided help on every level....from maintenance help to get her place in "sale ready" condition to an affordable, competent attorney to even a mortgage broker. You defined full service and professionalism. I was/am thrilled with not just what you did but how you did it and the speed in which you sold my friend's place. Working with you was a rare pleasure. You deliver! I would recommend you to anyone I know looking for THE BEST broker in Queens without hesitation. Thank you for the amazing job you did for my friend.Pat Stokes

 I have nothing but high praise for Olga and her professionalism and tenacity to get the job done, and done right. Olga has been in the industry for a long time and has a lot of resources and knowledgable people within her reach. If she doesn't know the answer she knows someone who does!

 

 The first time I met Olga was by chance. I had a bad morning looking at units with an agent who didn't share my vision. After parting ways, I randomly searched for open houses in the area and walked into a gorgeous unit that Olga happened to be the listing agent for.  Who knew my life could change in a second? This was exactly the type of place I wanted and Olga knew the building and the area well. From the moment I made an offer to the closing has been filled with some unexpected difficulties but Olga was with me every step of the way. In a position where she had on both hats (agent for the seller and buyer), she was very supportive, responsive to my inquiries, and cared about what was going on with me.

 

Olga recommended a mortgage broker with DE Capital, James Chen, and Lenny Pinkhasov from the office of Alouidor & Associates, PC. Olga set me up with my own little Dream Team!

 

 James was very responsive to all my calls and he introduced me to his team who were instrumental in guiding me as to what important documents were required for my mortgage application. James and his team were great at being my "first line of defense" in following up with any issues they found before submitting my loan package to the underwriter for approval. I was able to get a conditional approval within 2 weeks of submission.

 

 Lenny and his office were wonderful in answering all my questions and concerns. Lenny is great to work with because he is always on your side protecting your interests. When we had push back regarding some amendments to the sales contract, Lenny took the time and effort to go over each point with me and call the sellers' attorney to have them reconsider (which they did!).

 

There were some complications and delays due to the extreme lack of communication from the sellers' attorney, to the holiday season, and snow storms, but through it all, Olga was great at keeping all lines of communication open with the team and myself so that we were all working from the same playbook. Olga worked tirelessly in communicating the sellers' interest and my interest to each other and working with the both of us. We all knew what the end goal was - Closing Day! It took about three months but I don't think I could have done it without any of them. If it wasn't for Olga and her recommendations, this purchase would have never happened for me.

 

 There never was a time during this process where I ever had to wonder what was going on. I never had to worry because I knew I had a team of highly experienced individuals working with me to get to closing day. Olga even went above and beyond her role as a broker in helping me during a critical moment of closing where she actually had to travel outside of her area to pick up the keys for me. Olga really is as super star!

 

 I can say nothing but good things about Olga. I highly recommend her!

I just wanted to write and thank you for all your assistance with the sale of 139-15 83rd Avenue.  Thanks to your professionalism and prompt attention this transaction enabled us to overcome some of our contractual hurdles in the beginning and allowed this deal to close quickly and at a fair market price.  My client and I were very impressed with your marketing of this property, your skill in dealing with the Management Company and your attention to detail.  I look forward to dealing with you and Roman on future transactions.

From Judith P. AllenThe New owner of Suite 316 in the Arlington Co-op at13915 83rd Avenue Briarwood,Queens New York 11435

To the Douglas Elliman Company;

This letter is one that shows my gratitude and my appreciation for the assistance in finding a new place of Residence by one of your employees Ms. Olga Zakinova.

I had been looking for a place for over a year when Ms. Olga was recommended to me. She showed patience, listened to what my likes and dislikes were, and understood my fears and concerns.

Not once was she annoyed when I did not particular favor a place that she had in mind. At first I wanted to have a house. With her guidance and inner knowledge for future long rage goals, she showed me a Co-op that I am now the owner.

It was a long process to get me to where I am now. Without her help I would not have gotten through if she did not have the skills and organizational presentation.

She guided me to the right contacts for paper work compliances, insurance, Co-op rules, and Ms. Julie Brown who finalized the end results.

Overall, I am much wiser, much more understanding with what the agents have to go through, and better off with the Co-op than my original home. The big job is to have it fixed up to my specifications.

Again, I want to say much thanks to Ms. Olga for her time spent taking me to see places and all of the good things an agent does to help the client get into a place that will make their lives much more enjoyable.

Ms. Judith P. Allen
