WE LOVE OUR WORK
A&D ONE STOP SHOP
Our Mission: to ensure that your NYC real estate purchase, sale or rental is a smooth experience at every step.
Facilitating ownership in the Big Apple is an exacting exercise and Ariela Heilman & Deborah Miller greet their clients at the starting gate for the journey of a lifetime. Working with a finely honed Rolodex to finesse a successful collaboration to the finish line, this duo maneuvers through every which angle of NYC’s real estate obstacle course so our clients don’t have to.
Following 13 years as a residential broker specializing in co-op and condo sales in Morningside Heights and the Upper West Side, Ariela Heilman opened her former brokerage on July 4, 2004, building on a strong, loyal customer referral network. As Manhattan prices soared, pricing out many first-time buyers, Ariela and her team explored new opportunities and a gentler bar for co-op admission offered by the tried and true NYC tradition of taking the subway one more stop. Not only did Ariela and her team find a world of light, grand deco layouts and a welcoming price point, but also the opportunity to engage socially and civically within a vibrant community. Ariela’s realtor team took the professional initiative to import the lessons and discipline of Manhattan’s Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) marketing and co-broking practices. Today, Ariela continues to tout opportunities in Upper Manhattan and the Bronx, successfully brokering both sales and rentals daily.
Deborah Miller hails from the Wasatch Mountains and has a keen eye for emerging opportunities in NYC real estate. She is particularly enthusiastic about activity in Upper Manhattan, the Bronx and, for the weekender, Beacon, NY. Deb’s tips for best practices on doing business in NYC: stay on the sunny side, collaborate, communicate clearly, and prepare with focus. Sí, se habla espanyol!
“Just a quick note to say THANK YOU for all your support, assistance, guidance and encouragement throughout my home purchase process! You were a fantastic team, and I could not have done it without you all!”
“You are such a phenomenal Broker. Your representation and presentation was very impressive which prompted my Client’s to highly consider your listing as a priority. I will follow up with them today and keep you posted. Have a great and prosperous day.”
“I have worked with many real estate brokers over the past 29 years, and Ariela is the most extraordinary. I met her on a matter where I represented the Seller, an estate, and Ariela represented the buyers (the parents of Uma Thurman, the actress). At that time, Ariela was an independent broker and did not work with a firm. The Seller’s broker did not show up for the walk through and Ariela, representing the purchaser, made sure that the apartment was broom clean and ready for the closing the following day. This is not the first, or last instance, where Ariela has gone the extra mile. Ariela ALWAYS goes the extra mile and puts the interests of her clients above her own.”
“Dear Deb and Ariela, I can’t thank you enough for all the work you have put in on this project. You have been therapists and cheerleaders, project managers, and…realtors! There is no way I could have managed this without the two of you on my side. This is the one area in this entire process of taking care of my aunt that I feel 100% confident about – that I found the right people for this huge job. So please let me treat you to some food as you continue on this journey with me.”
"…It became even more evident to me that I had found the right person once we came across the dream apartment I was hoping for. She made the buying process, something I had never approached, an operation I could carry out with ease. During the period after the offer had been accepted (the hurry up and wait period as she puts it) she always seemed to reach out to me at the right time. She foresaw my concerns and kept me informed about what was to come next. Our communication was always direct authentic and effortless. She really gained my trust throughout the process and eased all my anxiety."
“Ariela & Deb, You both were incredibly professional and personal (helpful, insightful, and so very pleasant!) and you made this journey a very pleasant one. For this i am very grateful. Thank you lovely ladies of Halstead – trust me when I say you have already and will continue to receive HIGH recommendations and praise from me.”
