As the No. 1 agent in the Rivertowns and consistently ranked among the top 5 in all of Westchester County, Francie brings unparalleled energy, knowledge, commitment and professionalism to everything she does. Her list of awards is impressive, but as her numerous, glowing client testimonials make clear, her reputation for honesty and integrity is far more important.

Francie provides every buyer and seller with the same exceptional attention and loyalty that she expects when hiring a professional.

Through her involvement as a Women of Compass Westchester Leader, Co-Founder of the Women of Compass Clubhouse and a Founding Member of Realm Global, a worldwide luxury real estate think tank, Francie keeps her finger on the pulse of issues affecting the market.
A successful Westchester realtor since 2010 and an active resident of the Rivertowns for over 28 years, Francie's comprehensive knowledge of the market and all things Westchester gives her clients a tremendous advantage. Moreover, the financial savvy she gained through years at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York makes her a uniquely qualified partner and collaborator for buyers and sellers throughout the Rivertowns of Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Irvington, Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow and Ardsley.
Originally from Connecticut, Francie earned a bachelor's degree in managerial economics from Union College and attended the NYU Stern School of Business. Married with two children, she transitioned from New York City to the Rivertowns in 1992 and has immersed herself in community life ever since. In her free time, Francie enjoys skiing, hiking and spending quality time with her family.
"Francie Malina and her team exceeded my expectations by orders of magnitude. Not only did she secure multiple bids for my home (during a buyers market!), but she remained extremely present and available during the entire transaction and negotiated an excellent price and terms for my home. Francie and her team approached the deal with a wonderful human element, always conscious that behind both sides of a transaction are families. The most striking part of the entire transaction is that, unlike most agents, Francie's job did not end the day she received her check. She continues to not only be helpful to my family but to the buyers who purchased my home and they weren't even her clients. Her follow through is extraordinary, her intelligence, knowledge of the market and attention to detail unmatched and her kindness stands alone in this industry. I would give 10 stars if I could."

"If you are considering buying a home in Westchester, specifically the Rivertowns, look no further. My wife and I were one of many moving from Brooklyn to the suburbs. Afraid, scattered, uncertain of what we wanted, uncertain of what we could afford, and not sure where to live or which town to look in. Luckily for us we had Francie. She was so informative, knows everything about everything/anything in the Rivertowns. From where you want to live in each town to what electrician and plumber to hire after you buy the . She has friends at all the schools/local pre-schools to help with the transition of kids to a new town, as well as an endless resource to anything/everything Westchester. She quickly became someone we trusted, and in the end of the day that's what you need when it comes to a Realtor®."

What we like most about Francie is her total honesty. We never felt like she was trying to sell us something or convince us of anything. She’s great, we highly recommend Francie Malina."

"Francie helped to sell our in Dobbs Ferry, and we couldn't be happier. Her knowledge and passion were evident from the moment we met her, and we immediately knew she was the right agent for us. Her communication was great through the entire process. She was always available and immediately answered any questions or concerns that we had. She was dead on with the listing price, and got us top dollar. I can't recommend her enough. If you're looking to buy or sell in the Rivertowns, don't look any further."

"Look no further in Westchester County NY for real estate virtuosos. Francie Malina and her Dream Team are the best of the best. They make every bit of the buying and selling process a breeze. You will not be disappointed in their level of service and expertise."
"As first-time homebuyers, we needed a true and honest partner to be patient with us as we were educated on homeownership, while in the actual process at the same time. Francie was every bit of that and more through the entire process, even able to give guidance on all of Westchester as we narrowed in on our town of choice. She delivered the best partners in the business when it came time for inspections, etc. Even now, a month into owning our home, she’s still in touch with us sending local happenings and contacts, making the transition to a new town that much easier! Francie proved time after time to be an exceptional individual first, then followed by first hand display of why she is considered a top realtor by all. Truly, we feel like she has become part of our family and excited for whomever has the opportunity to work with her in the future."
