I am so thankful and appreciative for having Chrystel as my agent during my hunt for my first home in NYC. Chrystel actually listened to what I wanted and only showed me properties that she knew I would be interested in and was within my budget. I have dealt with other brokers before that were only interested in gaining a commission, but Chrystel was genuinely invested in helping me find a home that I would be happy in. She was helpful from day one, from looking at properties, through the bidding process, was able to recommend a great real estate attorney, and was with me throughout the whole process. I never felt like I was alone with her at my side. I would, in a heartbeat, recommend Chrystel to anyone I knew who is looking for a home, whether to rent or to purchase. Chrystel Garipuy displayed the utmost professionalism and courtesy, and has a very pure heart. I am so happy to have had her as my agent, and now as a friend.

I would like to greatly thank Chrystel Garipuy for her professionalism and her efficiency, her commitment and her kindness. Without her, I would still be running left and right to find an apartment in Manhattan. I relocated from Paris to work in New York and I had not measured the difficulty to find a good apartment in my budget and close to my work. Very quickly Chrystel led me to good choices and helped me find in urgency the apartment where I live now and where I feel so good!
I highly recommend Chrystel who will know how to find the best option for you

It is our immense pleasure to recommend Chrystel Garipuy as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for a home. Chrystel is highly talented and highly professional agent that is also very understanding and sensitive to a client’s needs. She did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our wishes. Additionally, she was very proficient and diligent in preparing all paperwork for submission to the bank and the Board and was always available to talk and guide us with any concerns that we had. Chrystel returned all phone calls and emails the same day, despite the fact that we were in Europe during the home buying process. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality and we found her to be honest and with a very high level of integrity.
We are pleased to recommend Chrystel to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is one of the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever have future real estate needs, she will be our first choice.

I am not living in NYC and so lucky to have Ms. Chrystel Garipuy as my agent when I was looking for an investment property in Manhattan. She started at giving me an overview of NYC which is very valuable to me. Then she showed me properties based on my budget and other criteria. She compared all the properties for me and gave recommendations. She continued her help in the bidding process and then recommended a couple of attorneys for my selection. The whole purchase process was very smooth even I was not in NYC. I have started collecting rent from the property now and I am very glad of the return. In a world, Chrystel is a very professional and trustful real estate agent. I thank her for all the work she has done for me indeed and would certainly like to recommend her to potential buyers.

Chrystel played a key role in our successful search and securing of a perfect investment property in NYC. The apartment we ended up choosing was actually an off-market apartment that Chrystel found through her connections; needless to say we would never have found the ideal place without her help and experience in the NYC real estate market.
Chrystel was a great source of help every step along the way, including shortlisting places based on our budget and preferences, projecting potential return on investment, and supporting us through the offer process. Chrystel’s expertise, patience and genuine interest in securing us the right place made the process smooth and as stress-free as possible.
We are extremely thankful to Chrystel and would recommend her and Evans Real Estate Investments to anyone looking for an apartment in New York City!

Dear Karina, I’d like to express my appreciation of Chrystel’s help with this testimonial: We felt lucky to have Chrystel as our guide and consultant when we searched for an investment property in New York. Instead of pushing for a deal, Chrystel patiently showed us a great variety of choices and helped us to zero down to the one we really liked. Throughout the closing process, Chrystel was also extremely helpful in helping us to deal with the often frustrating process with the banks. We’d be more than happy to refer Chrystel to our friends and come back to her should we decide to invest in New York again!

Je voudrais remercier particulièrement Chrystel Garipuy pour son professionnalisme son efficacité, son implicaion et sa gentillesse. Sans elle je serai encore en train de courir a droite a gauche pour trouver un appartement à louer dans Manhattan!
En provenance de Paris je suis arrivé sur NYC pour travailler et je n’avais pas mesuré la difficulté de trouver un apart dans mon budget et dans un quartier pas
trop loin de mon travail. Très vite elle m’a aiguillé vers de bons choix et m’a aidé a trouver dans l’urgence mon apart dans lequel je suis maintenant tellement bien installé !
Je vous recommande fortement Chrystel elle sera trouver la meilleure option pour vous

I am writing you to recommend the outstanding efforts Chrystel gave during what proved to be a long and difficult process — the purchase of our new apartment. We worked for Chrystel for nearly 6 months, and during that time she showed us a number of apartments, several of which we bid on and lost. While each bidding war failure was a frustrating and emotionally draining experience, Chrystel
always managed to keep us focused on the bigger picture, that we’d eventually find the right place at the right price.
Then she showed us the apartment at 372 DeKalb that we eventually closed on. The apartment had been shown previously and an offer had been accepted, but that fell through. I believe we were the first to see the place upon being relisted. We loved it and bid the asking price the following day, which the sellers tacitly accepted. However, they were unable to formally accept and go into contract because the sale of our own apartment was not yet on stable footing (that is a story too long to go into here, but suffice it to say it was miserable), and so the sellers continued to show the place for another 5 weeks before we finally went into contract. Throughout this period Chrystel continued to show us apartments and to chime in usefully with suggestions about how we might better move along our sale.
Things were looking up and we expected an easy time with the rest of the purchase process. However, there was a major problem with the board, which thought the price that had been accepted was too low. For two weeks we were in limbo. Chrystel and the sellers’ agent really went to work to try to goose the approval process forward. In the end, it was successful; the board stepped aside and allowed the sale to proceed. Simply put, this could not have happened without Chrystel’s energy and dedication to us and our interests.
