Astoria and Long Island City are two of the hottest neighborhoods in New York. Given their wealth of restaurants and boutiques, the vibrant art scene, and their close proximity to Manhattan, it’s no surprise. When it comes to LIC luxury apartments and stunning condos in Astoria, Modern Spaces has all the bases covered, with brokers who know the region like the back of their hands.

Why did you become a real estate agent?
I became a real estate agent because I truly enjoy dealing with homes, businesses, and apartments — those places are where we spend much of our time. It makes me feel good to see someone’s reaction to finding a place they love.
What neighborhood do you specialize in, and what makes that neighborhood a great place to live?
I specialize in Astoria at the moment. I was born and raised there, and it’s so dear and close to my heart. I truly love where I grew up. I want others to experience what I did growing up — I want them to see all Astoria has to offer.
What makes Modern Spaces unique as a brokerage, as far as culture, service, and approach to real estate?
To me, Modern Spaces is very unique in that everyone is on the same team and is willing to help each other out to get the job done. There are young agents here, but everyone seems to be experienced in the sense that they know how to work together as a team.
If you were to give some advice to someone looking to rent or buy an apartment, what would it be?
Always work with someone who is advocating for them and not chasing the commission. You can always feel a broker out by his or her actions and they must always respect that this will be your home so some love and patience is needed.
What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is showing people what they can make a space look like and also helping them find things in their neighborhood that they can enjoy. Basically, I love helping someone find a place they can call home.
