"Highly recommend! Pamela recently helped us sell our home after only a short time on the market. We have lived in our house for 48 years, and this was the first time we have ever sold a house. It was a very stressful time for us and so important to find a realtor we could trust to guide us through the process which is now digital and very different from when we first bought in 1971. Pamela, a member of the Francie Malina team, explained everything, including the staging process which showed our home to its best advantage, conducting two open houses, helping negotiate a two family bidding war and advising us on where to sell furniture we were not taking with us. She literally held our hands throughout the entire process. Pamela is very knowledgeable about our area and school district which contributed to a successful sale. She is a consummate professional. We highly recommend her."
"Pamela showed us homes in the Rivertowns and helped us get a thorough understanding of the nuances between the different towns and different types of homes. We spent a number of weekends over the course of a few months seeing homes and driving around (during covid) with Pamela as our trusted guide. She was very knowledgeable and super patient as we tried to decide which town was the best fit for us. She was also very proactive in a non overbearing way; we could feel that she just wanted us to find the right house, without the pressure. Although we did not complete a transaction with her because we decided on a different geographic location, we would highly recommend her and her process. "
"We put our Scarsdale property on the market a few months ago not knowing what kind of response we would receive. Pamela Grunstein of Compass was there every step of the way to make our selling process during a pandemic year extremely doable. She took great care to work with our schedules in arranging viewings and guided us correctly when we had a question. Pamela helped us with the staging of the property, kept us informed regularly of offers and viewers comments. She was a very reassuring presence throughout the process. I can categorically say that this was our best selling experience. I would recommend Pamela Grunstein and the Compass Team to anyone who is considering selling their home.We will certainly use her again!"
"We were relocating from across the country, to an area we didn't know all that well, and Pamela did an AMAZING job introducing us to the area and being our eyes and ears on the ground. She not only did a fantastic job as a broker, going above and beyond at every point in the process, but she personally took us around all of Westchester county to give us a detailed sense of the area. Because we were located across the country, we needed a broker who we could trust even more than usual, and Pamela couldn't have been more dependable, responsive and trustworthy. Highly recommend, whether you're new to the area or a longtime local."
"Local knowledge ***** Process expertise ***** Responsiveness ***** Negotiation skills ***** Pam is a bright, enthusiastic, extremely accommodating realtor. She listened to all of my needs and went the extra mile; answering every question that was proposed at any given time. She made the process of selling a house easy. I give her 5 stars and a big high 5 for being a terrific realtor and a person that works with the utmost integrity."
"Pamela is maybe the best realtor we ever worked with. She was informative, insightful, responsive, and understanding of our needs throughout every stage of the process, from when we first started casually exploring the River Towns to when we began to seriously consider making offers. While we ultimately did not find a house in Westchester that met our needs due to COVID, I would recommend Pamela without hesitation to anyone hoping to settle in Westchester. She knows the towns inside out and is up to speed on all the nuances of the market. We felt she truly had our back throughout the process."
"Pamela is hands down the best realtor we have dealt with in over 20 years of home buying. She went above and beyond in every aspect of our home search and home buying process. From the beginning, she worked hard to get us all the information we wanted and always presented things in an objective manner, whether it was providing hard data or market color to help us make the right decisions or traveling to take/send us videos of places we couldn’t see in person ourselves. She was also a fantastic guide through the home buying process, as we were new to the area, and was extremely proactive and communicative. Finally, she was someone who was a trusted advisor by our side, helping us to make the right decisions, whether it was doing detailed house inspections during our search or ensuring the house we bought was delivered in the right way. Our expectations were beyond surpassed and we could not recommend her more highly. "
"Pamela was an excellent agent that assisted us with the sale of our home in Irvington. She was able to navigate some choppy waters along the way while staying cool and collected. She was communicative, went the extra mile and always available when I needed her. I am happy to recommend Pamela to any buyers or sellers in the market just as she was recommended to me."
"Working with Pamela is like working with a member of the family who happens to be in real estate. She is methodical, listens carefully and works hard to help her clients realize their housing wants/needs. There were many times when we thought we had "turned down too many opportunities" and that Pamela would be discouraged -- but that wasn't the case. She hung in there and continued to find more choices for us to consider until we found our special place."
"My husband and I wholeheartedly recommend Pamela to anyone embarking on the homebuying journey. In our particular case, Pamela helped us navigate the incredibly tough market to purchase our first home - on a tight timeline and largely from out-of-state, which would not have been possible if not for Pamela. She was there for us every step of the way - seamlessly communicating at all hours via text, phone, email and by video on house tours and related visits like inspections, as well as reaching out proactively to ensure we were informed and supported every step of the way. Additionally, the end-to-end resources and guidance provided by Pamela and the Francie Malina Compass Team made the complex first-time experience much easier to understand and stay on top of. Put simply, the service went above and beyond our expectations. We will forever appreciate Pamela's positivity, respect, understanding and support during one of the most important times in our lives. Thank you, Pamela!"

"Prompt response and good service. Always kept in touch about the next step. Loan procedure, mortgage information, other services for home improvements, Neighborhood information, navigation and closing documents."
"Pamela is the best real estate agent! She and Compass supported us through the sale of our home and purchase of another. She has the utmost integrity and puts her clients' interest above all else. I would not hesitate to recommend her - she's smart and kind. We appreciate all she did for us in navigating our deals."
"Pam was very honest, reliable and most important of all, relentlessly working for me when my condo unit received multiple offers and an accepted offer in less than 48 hrs above and beyond the listing price. She walked me through those crazy multiple competing offers with her very knowledgeable insight to make a most practical decision without regret. A true guardian angel indeed!"
