Originally from San Jose, California, Yaffa attended UC Berkeley, where she graduated early with a degree in Business Administration from the Haas School of Business. After college, Yaffa's interest in real estate prompted her to earn a certificate in Real Estate Principles from Baruch College. She strongly believes in continuing education and stays up to date on the real estate market by reading books, articles, and blogs, attending trainings, and meeting other real estate professionals.
Before working in New York real estate, Yaffa worked at an established real estate investment & property management company in the Bay Area. There she managed large shopping centers and many residential tenants. She also worked on the investment acquisition side of the business, analyzing potential purchases worth tens of millions. Given her experience, Yaffa is equipped to represent residential and commercial owners, renters, and buyers.
With years of photography experience, Yaffa has an eye for detail and can relate to clients' desires to find the right aesthetic in their homes. She is also in tune with practical concerns and can assist clients in choosing a floor plan that will fit their specific needs. Yaffa is accustomed to finding a balance between multiple variables and consistently incorporates this concept into her real estate research.
Yaffa's ability to relate to a variety of personalities and actively listen to people make her the ideal real estate agent on any side of a transaction. She is a dedicated individual with a strong work ethic who inspires confidence that what she accomplishes is the result of her best efforts.
Not enough words can fit into this box to tell how much Yaffa has helped us. We are very thankful to her!! She was definitely not lazy nor vindictive like the other brokers were to us.
Yaffa helped us find a great apartment in no time. She was responsive, timely, and answered our questions without hesitation. Very professional and accommodating. No shady business and no attitude.
I would certainly use her again if ever in need.
Yaffa was a super attentive, very friendly resource for my roommate and I, as we looked to nail down an apartment in Brooklyn. From the beginning, she was very forthright, helping us work through the process and ultimately sign the paperwork for an apartment that we're happy with.
Helped us get a place. My roommate and I were very happy with her. She's legit!
Absolutely wonderful to work with! Thoughtful and very responsive.
The professionalism and kindness I was shown working with Yaffa Solin was AMAZING. She was the best real estate person I have ever encountered.
She is always timely with responses and clarifies anything I needed help with. I will recommend her to anyone.
She also helped me by recommending a wonderful moving company who were superb.
Thank you Yaffa,
Yaffa was great to work with. I was new to the New York City real estate market and unsure of the necessary steps but working with her was great. Her communication skills are really good and she approved my application quickly. I would recommend her to my friends and family.
Thank you Yaffa for the great experience. After meeting a few agents from different firms, Yaffa was a godsend. She genuinely cared about my needs, did an incredible job at finding my dream apartment and helped me through the process without any problems. I am recommending her to everyone and will use her again in the future.
Yaffa is extremely knowledgable about the ins and outs of real estate in NYC and Brooklyn and works hard to make sure to find the perfect fit for her clients.
Yaffa was very personable and great to work with. She clearly takes her work seriously as she was very accommodating when it came to viewing the apartment. As a first time renter, I really appreciated Yaffa taking the time to help me and my fiancé through the process. A pleasure to work with all around.
