TOP REAL ESTATE AGENT IN NEW YORK CLAIRE BISIGNANO CHESNOFF
“It’s important for people to realize, if you have a dream, you can achieve it,” Claire Chesnoff says, while discussing her journey in the real estate world. There is no doubt Claire has achieved her dream, as owner of Claire Properties with offices in both Brooklyn and Staten Island. She worked hard to get to this point, starting off as a single mom with three children and previously working as a substitute teacher. When she wasn’t offered a permanent position in the area she lived, she decided to pursue real estate full-time. “On a wing and a prayer, I stepped forward as a real estate agent for a top producer,” she explains. By March of 1998, she was on her way towards success. The second year she was in real estate, she broke six figures, and hasn’t looked back since. Since then, she has been featured by numerous magazines and radio shows, including IHeartRadio.
“I can really do whatever my clients need,” she says. With nine designations, including Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) which only 3% of all REALTORS® in the nation have achieved, the Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), Green Designation (GREEN), and Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), among many others, she is well equipped to handle any situation. Because she comes from an education background, expanding her skills and knowledge has been a cornerstone to her business. In addition, Claire is hyper-focused on serving her clients, and does everything possible to ensure their happiness. As the owner of a boutique firm, Claire wants all clients to receive a concierge-like experience.“I get up early in the morning and work harder and smarter than many people,” she explains. Extremely detail-oriented, she makes sure nothing falls through the cracks.
During the process, clients feel appreciative of her skill level and service. One recent client raved about her ability to get them towards their goals, saying, “I had my home listed in with a broker for 2 years. The house was not properly listed in MLS, etc. and the broker did not bring me qualified, READY buyers. This cost me time, money, and aggravation. Frustrated, I turned to Claire through a recommendation to list my home. She quickly staged my home BEAUTIFULLY and I received a lot of traffic, 3 solid offers, and a sold home within 30 DAYS! She brought me QUALIFIED, READY buyers and she is an experienced, consummate professional that cares about her clients needs, not just about making money. A rare breed these days. I am extremely happy with her services and I strongly recommend Claire Properties. If you want to buy or sell, Claire is the one to seek. There aren’t enough stars on this review for her. She’s a diamond in the rough!”
Another client verifies Claire’s skills, saying, “lf you want to sell your home, Claire is the Realtor to go with. She gives 110% to everything she does, and she is with you from the beginning all the way through to closing. She treats every client like family and we appreciate all the hard work and effort she put into helping us sell our home.”
While real estate is Claire’s main focus, and she will be President of the Staten Island Board of Realtors is 2016, she also sets aside time for community involvement. She is on the Board of Directors for the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce and the Jewish Community Center. She is also on the Advisory Board for the College of Staten Island School of Business.and the Board of Out of the Storm Senior Services.
Nearly 18 years into her career, Claire feels grateful to be where she is today, and is excited to see where the future takes her. She can’t wait to continue building her business.
“What I love about it is every day is different. There is always a challenge of some sort. But most of all, I enjoy meeting people and helping them achieve their dreams.”
