Above & Beyoned
MK is professional, detail oriented and one of the hardest working realtors you will ever meet. She goes above and beyond to research your needs as a buyer and a seller and leverage her deep knowledge of Westchester real estate. She welcomed us to the community and made sure that our family (kids and pets) had a smooth transition. Throughout our time in Bronxville, MK was always a resource for us for any needs and is one of the reasons we miss Bronxville so much (moved out of state for work). We were so impressed with her business acumen and knowledge of the area that we used MK to both buy and sell our home. We have and will continue to refer people to MK without hesitation knowing that they will be in truly capable hands.

Enthusiastically recommend MK!
We hired MK specifically because of her reputation for honesty and hard work, and we found that she is most deserving of that reputation. MK is thoughtful, extremely diligent, and she knows EVERYTHING there is to know about Bronxville real estate and the Bronxville community. She was kind and respectful of our thoughts and opinions, while earnest and persistent in telling us her professional judgments. She went above and beyond in every way, going so far as to bring over some of her own furniture to stage part of our outside space. I highly and enthusiastically recommend MK!

MK is a Pro
MK is a pro. In addition to being so pleasant to deal with, she has a depth of knowledge over a broad array of topics that is invaluable. MK developed a great sense of our needs and wants in finding a home and adeptly handled a number of unique challenges that we faced with regard to the home we ultimately purchased. From financial and tax questions to renovation and design questions, she had thoughtful and well researched answers. But the most impressive aspect of working with MK is how much she cares. I know it's a little cliched, but she really did go above and beyond for us and her concern and conscientiousness were truly genuine. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her and am happy to provide further details if requested

Attentive and Dedicated
Working with MK was an absolute pleasure!!! She was so attentive and dedicated to the sale of our home. She was very responsive and timely with any questions that needed addressing during the process and was knowledgeable about issues that would arise with an older home such as ours. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a real estate agent

From Staging to Closing
MK recently oversaw the sale of my apartment in Bronxville. Everything was extremely well taken care of from staging to closing. I would highly recommend MK to anyone looking for an agent in the Bronxville area!

Invaluable Guidance and Advice
I had the pleasure of working with Mary Karen O'Shaughnessy for the recent sale of my co-op. Her professionalism, patience and dedication in walking me through this stressful process was a great comfort to me. Her guidance and advice were invaluable. I would highly recommend MK as a realtor. Her pleasant personality is an added plus !

Top Notch Negotiating Skills
MK was absolutely amazing. She has a wonderful knowledge of the area, top notch negotiating skills and is incredibly professional. MK really listened to all our wants and needs and found us the perfect house in a great neighborhood. I would recommend MK to anyone looking for a house.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Mary Karen and Andrea. I met them completely by accident while looking at a new property, and was immediately impressed by their candor, knowledge of the local area and willingness to go right to work. Within a day of meeting them, they provided me multiple listings that met my desires, and more importantly for someone like myself, they were clear to point out all the pros and cons associated with buying each one. Before meeting Mary Karen and Andrea, my experience with real estate agents was distinctly negative. My experience after meeting them, however, was distinctly positive. I can’t say enough about how much I appreciated their prompt, friendly and honest service throughout the process of buying my new place. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a place to buy or rent in lower New York.

Highly Likely to Recommend
MK is very personable and put in an extraordinary effort to help find the right home for us at the right price. We always felt that she was providing the absolute best information, both macro and micro, which in turn enabled us to make a confident decision either way. There was no unnecessary pressure ever, she spent as much time as we needed throughout the process.

MK & Andrea are Amazing
MK and Andrea are amazing. We have moved many times in the last 10 years and have NEVER had an agent team as effective. Kind, knowledgable, honest, transparent, connected, thoughtful, and funny are just some of the words that come to mind when recalling our time with MK and Andrea shopping for a home in Bronxville. They gave us the inside scoop on every home, neighborhood, restaurant, church and sport. MK and Andrea are fantastic at matching clients with a great home and helping them negotiate, but they are also much more. They are ambassadors, fellow parents, trusted advisors and friends. We simply cannot recommend them enough!

Proactive and Full of Ideas
"Over the years, we have worked with a number of good real estate agents on both sides of the transaction, but none better than Andrea and MK. We had planned on interviewing several agents to list our home, but after meeting Andrea and MK and seeing their preparation and approach, we hired them on the spot. They were professionals from that point forward--organized, knowlegeable, accessible, proactive and full of ideas to sell our home. And, most importantly, they are nice people. They began as our agents and, several months later, became our friends."

Professional from Start to Finish
Thank you again for your help in the sale of my apartment. You were very professional from start to finish in staging, photographing, listing and the actual sale process. I appreciated your responsiveness and guidance throughout this process that ended with multiple favorable offers above asking.

Profession Approach v. Pushy
We met MK at an open house an immediately were impressed by her knowledge of the area, willingness to get information on listings, local resources and attention to detail. Her approach is professional versus pushy. She has a great sense of urgency, was always available for questions and expertly guided us through our first time NY state purchase. We will use MK again should we need to list our house or purchase another. We would highly recommend MK to anyone in need of a realtor.

Available & Supportive Every Step of the Way
We had a terrific experience working with MK! She is incredibly friendly, patient, and responsive. MK really listened to us and quickly grasped what we were looking for. She was always available to us and supportive every step of the way. MK was a pleasure to work with and I'd recommend her to anyone - but especially those looking to relocate from NYC. She helped us to find our ideal home in Westchester and we couldn't be happier!

Sincere Care & Kindness
While I was desperate to find a rental apartment, and did not hear back from other agents, MK helped me very kindly and persistently until I secured a place. After I signed the lease, due to an uninformed problem from the landlord's part, my moving-in had to be postponed. MK followed up the issue very seriously until it got resolved. She definitely went above and beyond her duties and showed sincere care and kindness.

MK is in the Top 1%
I have worked with a lot of Real Estate professionals and I was blown away by MK's level of dedication and attentiveness. She was always on top of everything and went above and beyond every step of the way. Trust me, 95% of the RE agents out there are terrible, lazy, unmotivated and just not good at their jobs. MK is in the top 1%. A rare find. Hire her today, seriously, you will thank me.
