The key to Maurice’s success is an understanding that every client has different needs and desires, and has a broad range and detailed understanding of all of NYC real estate, Westchester County and the Greater Hudson Valley Community. “At the end of the day, I work with a client one-on-one, treating them as I would want to be treated, and giving them the honesty and friendship that they deserve from. I research all potential properties with those needs in mind, stay up-to-date on market developments, including the financial markets, to ensure that my clients are among the first to view a new listing.” With clients in throughout the NY region, Maurice has a deep understanding of many neighborhoods and communities, and is able to guide a client on exactly their real estate goals and needs.
