"We were first time home buyers -- and terrified. Shana was outstanding in expertly explaining and guiding us through the home buying process, greatly alleviating our anxiety along the way. She instantly gained our confidence. Shana is extremely knowledgeable, honest, diligent, reliable, and simply a pleasure to be around. We could not recommend a more impressive broker.“
“Looking for a house is a stressful process. I feel SO lucky we found Shana to help us navigate every step of the way. From the moment we got in her car, I never felt an ounce of pressure. She was happy to set up as many showings as necessary, always patient, but moved with a sense of urgency when we knew we found our house. Shana is so knowledgeable and provided so much guidance on how to handle such a tricky market that ultimately got us exactly what we wanted! On top of that, she has a lot of connections and recs for contractors, painters, handymen, etc... that really made our move to the suburbs so much easier. Sometimes people are brought into your life for a reason. I truly cannot imagine having had anyone else by our side for this big milestone! Shana is THE BEST and I cannot recommend her enough!!!"“
“We had a wonderful experience purchasing our home with the help of Shana. Shana was extremely patient in answering all of our countless questions and always got back to us very quickly to answer any question or address a need. I would not hesitate to recommend Shana to anyone searching for a new home in the area.“
“Shana is amazing! She genuinely cares about your goals as a client, and made every effort to understand our needs in a new home. She is exceptionally professional, always responsive, and advocated for us when issues arose during the contract negotiation process. Shana is unbelievably patient, very dedicated to her work, and helped make the painful process of buying a new home, as stress-free as it could be. We couldn't imagine going through this process with any other broker!“
“Shana was incredible! If she'd just found us the perfect house (she did), it would've been enough. But she’s also an encyclopedia - she answered our questions about everything from commuter parking at the train stations, to where we should go for brunch after a morning of house hunting. And she may actually know everyone in the area - she has great recommendations for inspectors, contractors, pediatricians, hair stylists, whatever. Which would all be amazing on its own, but she's also just a wonderful person. She's kind and good natured, she had a great rapport with our young son, and she was unbelievably patient with us and our newbie home buying questions. She's the best.“
“Shana is an agent that goes over and above for you every single step of the way. From finding listings and getting you to see homes as soon as possible to giving you rough quotes for home improvements to factor into your budget...she knows it all! She will even take it a step further and connect you with new people and activities in your area. Shana isn't just a broker or a resource but a professional, knowledgeable confidant in the home buying process. I cannot recommend her enough!“
“Shana was the best possible broker imaginable. She is friendly, responsive and knowledgeable. We purchased our home during unprecedented times and she navigated an ever changing marketplace with limited comparables and inaccurate appraisals with ease. Her deep understanding of the local market plus excellent referrals for service providers (inspectors, painters, etc) has made our home purchase a wonderful experience. Anyone would be lucky to buy a home with Shana.“
“Shana is more than a real estate agent. She is a therapist, a life coach, a Westchester tourism director and a friend when you need her to be. But she's also a fierce advocate for your goals and dedicated to getting you exactly what you want. We feel so lucky to have found Shana to buy our first home with and anyone would be lucky to work with her.“

“We wholeheartedly recommend Shana if you are buying or selling your home. From our first viewing through closing she has been patient, honest, and responsive. We didn't come into house hunting knowing exactly what we were looking for. Shana took the time to help us figure that out first (including discussing each town in the area, neighborhoods, zoning etc) and then helped us narrow our search to our new home. She was patient with our enthusiastic in-law visits and endless questions about home ownership, and advocated for us during negotiations. She has been insightful, candid, and genuine throughout the entire process, which is needed when you are buying your first home! Even after the close, Shana continues to help us with recommendations for contracts, handymen, painters, fence builders etc. We are so thankful that we found Shana and wouldn't hesitate to work with her again!“
“If you are looking to buy or sell your home, I highly recommend Shana Koransky. Her knowledge of the area is extensive (she lives and grew up in Westchester.) As first time buyers, we were overwhelmed by the entire process. Shana's "bedside manner" was exactly what we needed. She held our hands every step of the way, was readily available, and helped us to navigate. She is great at what she does. I would work with Shana again in a heart beat.“
“Shana is honest, genuine, and cares about the needs and interests of her clients. She is strong but does not stress her clients, which is a very important characteristic in this whole process. Shana uses her experience, knowledge, and local connections to reassure and resolve any concerns.“
“As first time buyers, Shana ensured our true understanding of the entire process, and was actually such a great and affable negotiator, that the sellers and their agent commented on how wonderful she was to work with, after closing!“
“Shana has a unique ability to blend kindness with a no-nonsense approach to the home-buying process. We felt like we really had someone who was on our side - an advocate. Shana was patient, flexible, extremely knowledgable, but most importantly, someone we knew we could trust. If you're looking for an expert in the Westchester market to walk you through every step of the process, look no further.“
