A real estate professional for more than 12 years, Oliva Cohen is known for integrity, diplomacy and sincerity in all her dealings. In her tenure in the business, she has first and foremost strived to be someone in whom her clientele and colleagues can put their trust and faith.
Every transaction, she believes, is always about her customer. “You are the driver, I am the passenger who’s there to guide, educate, and provide the best service possible.”
Key to Oliva’s success has also been the result of her patient demeanor and dedicated work ethic. She knows how to listen, is generous in offering information, and more importantly, knows when to stop talking. Her main intention is to understand her client’s needs and build a relationship that will last over the course of time. When orchestrating deals for her buyers and sellers, Oliva is assertive and effective without being too aggressive.
While she is a strong negotiator and advocate for her clients, she is just as much a compassionate, friendly, humorous partner who eases a process that can often be quite stressful. A native and lifelong New Yorker, Oliva previously lived in Rockland County for close to a decade, then moved to the Upper East Side where she has resided since 1990. She offers clients a seasoned knowledge of New York City and an intimate understanding of what makes each distinct residential niche so special and unique.
