When you say Real Estate in Riverdale, New York - the name that invariably
always comes to mind for over 40 years is Lola Livingston. Besides this
petite dynamo's huge hats and boundless energy and enthusiasm, what buyers
and sellers always remember is Lola's professionalism and meticulous
attention to every facet of a transaction.
This often makes the difference between a successful deal and none at all.
Lola gained a reputation for her innovative approach to sales by focusing on
good old fashioned customer service. In Riverdale, Lola was instrumental in
initiating the original conversion of many existing cooperative and
condominium buildings, including the prestigious and Hayden-on-Hudson and
her career in real estate has blossomed into a very strong referral network
of repeat business.
Lola is also active in the sales and rental markets in Manhattan and on a
referral base in Florida. Lola is a resident of Riverdale since 1963 and
also spends time in her Florida home. She retired as the Director of
Consumer Relations for a large textile firm in Manhattan in order to raise
her two children.
Subsequently, Lola chose a career in real estate. Her reputation is, in
large part, based on the care and concern she shows for each individual's
needs and her follow through. Just ask any past or present client. When
time permits, you find Lola enjoying a game of golf... at the theatre...
concerts... or traveling - all of which take a back seat to the real estate
business she truly embraces.
"Lola is indeed one special human being; her professionalism and work ethic are truly remarkable. I feel very fortunate to have met Lola when I was looking for an apartment, making the move from Manhattan to Riverdale. Her passion and pride for her business and ethical constitution are like nothing I have ever seen. She definitely knows the business "inside and out" and is a true Real Estate Expert.
All of that being said, even more impressive is how much she truly cares about everyone she comes in contact with even after 'the sale' is over. Lola took me under her wing when I moved to Riverdale. She not only left me a housewarming gift and flowers on my move-in day but later in the week made sure I felt comfortable in my new neighborhood by driving me to the grocery store and treating me to a most delicious dinner.
Lola is one of the most kind, thoughtful and generous people I have ever met. I would certainly and HIGHLY recommend anyone who is in need of assistance in acquiring a Real Estate property to contact her without hesitation." - Heather J
"What makes this story so unique is that Lola Livingston was my Realtor when I purchased my Co-op many years ago and then again helped me sell the apartment just recently.
This wonderful experience started many years ago when I first met Lola, her professionalism, intelligence and wealth of information makes her stand out among other Realtors!
She made the process of selling my Co-op seamless and was always there to guide us through the entire process, from finding a great attorney to negotiating on our behalf. She made the experience smooth and stress free, which I so appreciated.
Lola went above and beyond and we would certainly recommend her services to everyone." - Maria S.
"I know Lola Livingston for many, many years, first as a fellow tenant and subsequently as a real estate broker.
She is diligent, competent, fast and thorough. She has always chosen qualified, responsible tenants for me and also offered sound advice." - Marva N
"Lola Livingston was 100% instrumental in seeing that the right property was presented to me. She understood exactly what I wanted and astutely understood the 2 bedroom Condo in Hayden on the Hudson would meet my requirements. Her knowledge and understanding of the properties enabled her to direct me to the Condo that was right for me.
I closed on the property September 5, 2017, within 10 weeks of first seeing the apartment. Lola is an aggressive sharp lady who knows the real estate business. As a fellow real estate owner and property manager myself I respect and honor her energy and determination to work towards finding the right fit for the property and the prospective tenant.
Should the occasion arise I will certainly recommend the people to work with Lola." - Phyllis H.
"This is my great pleasure to write the letter of recommendation for Lola Livingston. I met Lola in 2015 when I was purchasing an apartment from the seller she was representing at that time.
From the start, I was extremely impressed with her professionalism and great level of experience. Thanks to her, the process of completing necessary paperwork to finalize the purchase was quick and painless. I was amazed how energetic and enthusiastic she was.
Lola has a great personality and possesses qualities rare to find. For Lola, there are no "impossible" deals to do. Therefore, I did not hesitate to ask her to represent me as an agent in my next real estate moves.
She is not only excellent in selling-buying business, but renting as well. In a very short time, she was able to find a tenant for my apartment. In the past, finding tenants with other agents has been associated with long time waiting and monetary losses. With Lola as an agent, I know things will be and are done quickly and at the best professional service.
Lola Livingston is a real fighter, intelligent and very professional. Her ethics, dedication and enthusiasm are undeniable. I consider Lola as a good friend and always recommend her to my only good friends." - Jacob K.
"I have known Lola Livingston for 30 years. She was my broker for the purchase of two apartments, both of them in the Hayden Building. Lola is known to me in both her capacity as a broker and as a neighbor.
It is a pleasure to write in her favor as an ethical, knowledgeable and outstanding professional. Lola has a tremendous depth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of the Riverdale property market and in particular of the Hayden Building. I recommend her without reservation." - Stanley Y.
"I am writing to express my gratitude for how Lola managed the sale of my apartment (7E at 555 Kappock Street.) Lola is the consummate professional. Her people skills, in depth knowledge of all facets of the real estate business coupled with her integrity and her incredible work ethic made a very complex situation have a successful ending. Lola was able to keep my brother and me informed and committed to keep using her as our realtor in spite of the protracted frustrations we encountered from the coop, the lawyers and the difficulties of selling an outdated apt in this market. She is truly a gem!! !!
I have worked with many real estate agents over the years but have never had the pleasure of working with someone who is so savvy and professional. I am very appreciative for all she did for us and wanted to share this with you." - Barbara S.
"I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for Ms. Lola Livingston of Riverdale, New York, who is being considered for an appointment as a conservator for the affairs of a neighbor who passed away.
