Foreign Real Estate Buyer
As a Manhattan realtor and a licensed Asst. Appraiser for NY State, I specialize in foreign real estate buyers and investors. I help my foreign buyers who are investing in foreign real estate, see a perspective on price through the eyes of an appraiser, and help ensure a more secure footing to close. I can review an appraisal, check it for consistency, logical and appropriate application of analysis and correct calculations and provide my feedback.
I worked as a senior loan officer in the mortgage industry, and understand the value principles available to assist you in preparing the voluminous paperwork required, allowing you to do it right the first time.
For mulit-unit buildings, I can help break down income statements with you and find you the property that gives you the capitalization or return rate you are comfortable with for your investment.
If you are thinking buying foreign real estate, or a Manhattan apt to call home, call me today!

I am a full service broker who specializes in all types of Manhattan apts. If you are looking for apartments for rent in new york, or an nyc condo for sale, co-op or a townhouse in nyc, we can help.
We employ a rapid response time philosophy to address customer needs and pride myself in this responsiveness, often without prompting; especially when time is of the essence for foreign real estate buyers and out of town folks looking for an apartment rentals in NYC. I am readily available by email, phone, text, fax, 800# and Skype for my international clients.
See below for some examples of testimonials from past clients who have secured apartments in NYC with me!
I created a Yelp account just to express my gratitude for Jennifer Chiongbian at Citi-Habitats. Really.
I had to move to NYC quickly -- and dealt with other rental brokers before I met Jennifer. Each one would show me two apartments in NYC, and then want to go back to the office to regroup and meet up the next day. I didn't really have the time for this -- they moved too slow.
After having a bad experience with another broker (maybe I'll write about that next!), I emailed Jennifer. Within minutes, she she set up an all-day agenda of apartment showings that fit my budget, expectations, and Pug requirements. She not only showed up on time, but was professional, fun and tenacious. She knew what I wanted, and MADE IT HAPPEN.
I would have never been able to navigate the city the way I did with Jennifer's assistance -- and four other brokers in the city couldn't compare! She held my hand all the way through the lease signing, hugs and all. She was quick, accessible, and told me exactly what to do to get things done quickly.
She was a total rockstar, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would recommend her to anyone (especially out of towners)!" Rachael S. New York, NY
"Jennifer Chiongbian is some kind of fantastic agent .
Jennifer was an amazing help in finding us the perfect apartment. It's not like the list of things we wanted was short or vague. We had specific amenity requirements, specific location requirements, and a very specific price range. Jennifer listened carefully to what we were looking for and those are the kinds of apartments she had for us when we went out to look. Nothing else - just what we wanted to see. When we found exactly the right spot and it was time to jump through hoops with the leasing agent and the management company, Jennifer took care of everything. It couldn't have been easier. It wasn't like having an agent at all. It was like having a good friend (who happens to be an expert in Manhattan real estate) help us find the perfect new home. I'll never use another agent." Jay d., new york, ny
"Jennifer Chiongbian was so wonderful to work with. We had less than 2 days to find an apartment in NYC and she made it happen. Not only that--she also hooked me up with a job interview! Talk about full service! She's a pleasure to be around and a real asset. Thanks Jennifer!" Roxie S. New York, NY yelp.com
"Let me thank you for taking Rachel under your wing. This last week has been very traumatic for her and finding out at the last minute on her way back to New York that she did not have an apartment, was a tremendous blow. Now she faces starting a job on Monday with no place to live. She said you did a great job and were determined to find her something yesterday, and even loaned her money until Bank of America could get her account straight. That is above and beyond. Her sisters were here with her last week and I would be with her now, but I have been sick for over a week. Listening to her cry during the last 24 hours, I am tempted to hop a plane, sick or not, and come up there. She is ready to hop a bus and come back to Va. And quit this once in a lifetime opportunity.
Again, thank you for your kindness, your professionalism and willingness to work with Rachel. Our family of Realtors really appreciates it. If you ever want a job selling real estate in beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia I have a job for you. You are just the kind of professional that I like working with." Judy S. Remax Franchise Owner Aug. 9, 2008
"We originally tried a broker in New York who failed to show up for the appointment. Based upon these Yelp NYC reviews we choose Jennifer for our apartment search. Great Choice!!
Jennifer Chiongbian is a true professional. Knowledgeable, proactive, constant communication and flexible. We were looking for an apartment on the upper east side with a very short time frame. Jennifer was able to provide us with a number of choices and we obtained an apartment that met our needs from both price and location." john o., new york, ny 2/8/2011 yelp.com
"After a good friend and her family had to relocate to NY and had become frustrated with their apartment search, I quickly put them in touch with Jennifer. Within two days, they had to make the difficult decision of choosing among a number of beautiful apartments within their chosen NYC school districts. My friend still raves about Jennifer's professionalism - how she listened carefully to their needs, and quickly delivered - and personableness." Carol B.,yelp.com
"I would like to thank you for the exceptional personal service you provided my daughter Megan and I as we searched for her first post college apartment.
As you know, I have been a Realtor in Maryland and the District of Columbia for more than 20 years and I thought I knew everything I needed to know about real estate. New York proved to be a challenge that I was not prepared for.
Thank you for relieving me of the stress associated with locating available apartments for the showing and introducing us to so many selections in a very short amount of time, in a very professional manner. We will be moving Meghan to her new home this week, and we owe it all to you.
Meghan and I will continue to refer you to our many friends relocating to New York. I will never suggest to anyone that "go it alone" Cathy A. Kelleher W.C. & A.N. Miller Realtors June 2, 2008 linkedin.com
"Once again, I am filled with gratitude for assisting Meghan in locating a new apartment. We never had a concern as we know we had put her in your very capable hands!" Cathy A. Kelleher W.C. & A.N. Miller Realtors May 12, 2009
