Marjorie Dybec

"We are so grateful to have found Marjorie & Rob of The Dybec Team to sell our Greenwich Village apartment. We were first-time sellers, selling a NY co-op property while living in California, and they shepherded us through the entire process. They responded to every call and email, usually within seconds, with comprehensive feedback and information. They were generous with advice and research and also very respectful of our opinions and needs, understanding our specific priorities and perspective.

Our building staff and legal team sang their praises while working with them, and it also became clear to us that The Dybecs' experience and willingness to go above-and-beyond was a major benefit to the Buyer as well, in preparing their co-op application for board approval.

Days after we put the apartment on the market there was a pipe explosion in our building. Not only were Marjorie & Rob the first to let us know about this before building staff could even send out the memo, but they "babysat" our apartment like it was their own. Our ultimate Buyer saw the unit during this period of time and it must have been the Dybecs' manner and (legitimate) assurances that kept the Buyer feeling positive during this hiccup.

They were also a pleasure to communicate with and relate to. Their candor, humor, diplomacy, and intelligence was evident in every interaction. They kept us in the know when things were busy and talked us through the expected waiting times as well. They made a process that was inherently tense and emotional really approachable, civilized, and even fun at times.

We can't say enough positive things about Marjorie and Rob. We really felt we got white-glove service in a friend's packaging. We wouldn't hesitate to work with them again on the Buy or Sell side." --AN, West Village 2014

"My wife and I are British and were totally new to the New York property buying market when we met the lovely Marjorie and her partner Rob. We started out absolutely clueless about the rather complicated and (we soon discovered) shockingly expensive NYC property market! Luckily we found both Marjorie and Rob, who proved extremely helpful and patient brokers who clearly explained the market and its nuances to us over a 10 month period in which we 'ummed and ahhed' over which properties to bid on! In short we were probably quite annoyingly indecisive clients, but we were never once made to feel that way. In fact it was quite the opposite - Marjorie (with whom we worked the most) could be relied on to give honest, straightforward and efficiently delivered advice and she contributed real value in our final negotiation which resulted in the purchase of a beautiful penthouse apartment in Brooklyn under asking price. And both Marjorie and Rob are also extremely kind people, and we have remained in contact as friends since. We are looking forward to using their services again someday! 10/10 recommendation from us!" --AS & CS Greenpoint, Brooklyn 2014

"The Dybec team was excellent to work with. After 4 unsuccessful months of working with another broker, we listed with The Dybec team as we were impressed with their knowledge of our neighborhood and their marketing strategy for our apartment. One open house later and we were in contract. They were highly responsive throughout the process and quick to get us to the closing table. We can't recommend them highly enough!" --JY & MY Murray Hill

"Marjorie is a one-of-a-kind broker with with a unique combination of market savvy and a warm demeanor. We've been working with her for over 10 years and she recently helped us sell our beloved apartment in Chelsea. She was incredibly kind and never pushy, she is very knowledgeable and you feel like you're working with a friend (who is very smart about the nyc r.e. market). She will work tirelessly with great attention to detail to get you the most money possible, she was able to broker a deal for more than we ever imagined and did it in the nicest way.

Marjorie is smart, she reads situations and people very well and will research every question to give you a thorough and truthful answer. She is strong when necessary, she is responsive and has ethics. She is well respected in her industry which helps when dealing with other agents, mortgage brokers, banks, appraisers, etc. She is one-of-a-kind and we are grateful to her for helping us sell our beloved home and making the process as easy as possible. You will not find another broker like her, she is truly a star." --JB & SB Chelsea 2015

"Marjorie is one of the best real estate agents I have ever worked with. I was so impressed with her responsiveness and knowledge. She made me feel I was a top priority and she walked me through some very complicated issues. Also, just a very nice and honest and direct person. A real pleasure to work with!" --BL in Greenwich Village, Nov 2014

"I had the great pleasure of working with Marjorie when buying my pied a terre in NYC. I live in Florida and initially I began my search online by myself. I didn't have an understanding of even the most basic of concepts of NYC real estate like condo vs coop. I would inquire on a listing only to be met with impatience and a lack of willingness to help until I happened to call on one of Marjorie's listings. On that first phone call she spent over an hour educating me on the basics and correcting some of the misconceptions I had. She gave me an overview of the NYC market and explained the unique differences of the NYC buying process. Marjorie is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and patient. She listened to what I wanted in a property and tirelessly previewed listings to find potential matches. She is honest, trustworthy, and never pushy. She carefully explained to pros and cons of properties to me and always had my interests first and foremost. Marjorie took such a personal interest in helping me find the perfect apartment. She is extremely smart, articulate, and communicative. She always responded quickly and thoroughly to my calls and email. Her expertise and years of experience were extremely apparent when it came time to make an offer and negotiations. In the fast paced NYC market sellers are inundated with offers, often times all cash. Marjorie was able to craft and present my offers to the sellers in such a way that allowed me to remain competitive against the all cash buyer. She put me in contact with an attorney and a lender that shared the same high level of professionalism,and expertise. Once I was in contract she continued to be involved making sure I stayed on the timeline that was set forth in the contract. She stayed in constant communication with my attorney, lender, the building management, and the sellers broker to protect my interests. I never felt "handed off". She helped me prepare for my meeting with the coop board and meticulously assembled my board package. Marjorie was amazing to work with throughout the entire experience and I would highly recommend her to others. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to work with her and now to call her a friend." --Christina in Murray Hill 2014

"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Marjorie! She made the overwhelming process of buying a home quite painless. We appreciated her support and expertise and we look forward to staying in touch with her." - CS, Tribeca

“Marjorie was brilliant to work with and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She worked with us as first time buyers and struck a great balance of being incredibly responsive and helpful but not pushy at all. She was a great listener, paid incredible attention to detail, was highly supportive of our goals and helped us exceed them in an expeditious and thoughtful manner.” MS, Tribeca

"We never would have guessed that we would be homeowners when Marjorie first rented us our apartment several years ago. We are grateful for her guidance during the elaborate (!) process. We truly appreciated it all and very much recommend her!" - LA & AR, Upper West Side

"After having a few days to process the fact that we are now owners of our own little piece of NYC, we want to express how Marjorie made it all possible with her guidance, advice and patience over so many months." – MK, Tribeca

“Marjorie provides honest, reliable and comprehensive real estate services. We were lucky to have as our broker!” --JM, Gramercy

"I could not have done it without Marjorie. Her guidance through all the open houses, bids and negotiations was priceless. I am so grateful for all her insights and help and highly recommend her." -WK, Upper West Side

“She is one of a kind and we can't say enough good things about her. We were first time buyers in a very interesting Manhattan market. She managed to be very professional and at the same time very personable. At the beginning of the buying process, she took a methodical teaching approach. She always listened to our feedback and adjusted accordingly. As we progressed, she knew exactly when to push and how to guide us towards the right decision. Years later, we are very happy with the way things turned out. Overall, I found Marjorie to be very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and always well prepared. She was, and still is a priceless source of information. Her black book of recommendations is endless. She truly enjoys what she does and it shows. It was a pleasure working with her and, I can’t think of working with anyone else in the future.” AS & BH Union Square

Robert Dybec

"As a long time renter and first time buyer in the New York market, I was grateful to have Rob in my corner throughout the process of looking for and purchasing my apartment. His professionalism and knowledge of every step put me at ease. From the start, to advising me throughout making offers, to recommending an attorney, to explaining the process on closing day, I knew I was in great hands. He will be my first call if I ever want to sell my place!" - Becky G, Lower East Side

“When our daughter was a student at NYU, we decided it would be a good investment to buy an apartment in the city. As we don't reside in the states, it was her responsibility to start the process of looking at places, and getting an idea of costs, location, etc. She was only 20 at the time, quite shy about doing this but she started going to some Open Houses on Sundays. I am sure she didn't appear to be a prospective buyer to most agents but Rob Dybec talked to her and followed up with showing her places that he thought would fit her list of requirements. He treated her like a serious client and when I was able to visit New York for a week to look at all the possibilities, we found him to be extremely helpful, punctual, listened to us and didn't try to convince us about anything we didn't like. It was an excellent working relationship and with time being quite precious, we really appreciated how reliable and organized he was. By the end of the week, he guided us through a purchase which required some negotiation with the seller and another prospective buyer. We were thrilled that we were able to secure the property and have never regretted it. Consequently, when the sale actually finalized, he helped our daughter with all the necessary paperwork and was someone we could all trust and depend on. Without reservation, I would highly recommend Rob Dybec to anyone who is interested in the New York property market. He is sincere, hard-working, honest and connects well with his clients. I can say that he made the experience for us a very pleasant one.” - Terry M, Lower East Side

“My wife, Diane, and I worked with several real estate agents as we looked to buy an apartment in Manhattan. The process was overwhelming at times and we needed someone who was willing to work with us, meaning around our work schedules, our criteria for our ideal apartment and our price range. We found that Rob Dybec was that agent. He actually listened to us and only set up appointments to view apartments that met our wish list. Rob was a true professional who treated us with respect. Additionally, his knowledge of the real estate market was also key. Buying a condo or co/op in NYC is a great deal different than buying a private home. Rob was able to navigate us through the entire process. We found his demeanor to be calm and professional and we felt he worked with us as a partner from the start right through the closing.” -James P, Upper West Side

“Most people would say purchasing a co-op is an arduous, confusing process. But I am fortunate enough to have avoided all the headaches that usually come along with the experience, mainly because Rob Dybec has been such a great and thorough agent. I started searching for a co-op with Rob in December 2012. Through every step of the process, he diligently followed up without being pushy or demanding. He understands the patterns of the real estate market and thoroughly explains every aspect of it. His attention to detail is impeccable as you will see when you fill out your board application with him. He can also foresee any potential questionable information on the application from the board.

All in all, Rob is very knowledgeable on the industry as a whole and is meticulous in providing the best information to you in a clear and succinct manner. This was incredibly helpful for a first time co-op applicant like myself. I couldn't have done it without Rob! I would highly recommend him.” –Jennie C, Murray Hill

"Rob helped us find exactly what we were looking for! We had relatively little NYC experience and wanted to purchase an apartment, but it didn't matter because Rob was extremely knowledgeable about the Manhattan real estate market and was incredibly helpful. He showed us around to a bunch of places that we were interested in, and took us through the entire process through closing. I wouldn't use anyone else and would highly recommend him!" –Danielle K, Tribeca
