With nearly two decades in the business, Lilyan has a record of real estate successes that are a testament to her unique skillset. Throughout her years of client service, she has shown thousands of apartments and orchestrated hundreds of transactions, honing her ability to make razor-sharp judgments and offer expert guidance on every aspect of the buying and selling process. When you partner with Lilyan, you not only get an invested partner in your real estate goals, but an experienced consultant who offers knowledgeable advice and steers you in the right direction.

From the moment Lilyan sees a property, she knows what kind of buyers the home will attract and what price it will sell for. This impeccable intuition, developed as a result of her years of experience, allows her to see potential obstacles before they arise and ensure that her seller clients have the best possible experience. She is also an expert marketer, overseeing the many moving parts of the sale process—from staging and architectural renderings to targeted advertising and utilizing her wide network of contacts. By developing a customized marketing strategy, anticipating ever-changing market trends, and offering value analysis, Lilyan ensures a successful sale.

For buyer clients, Lilyan is just as proactive and thorough. As a New York resident for over 30 years, she utilizes her deep market knowledge and understanding of New York City’s many neighborhoods to offer comprehensive solutions. "I rely on my ability to see things from my clients' perspective and to always provide outstanding service," Lilyan says. This approach has served her well, with clients ranging from first-time buyers to seasoned investors who trust Lilyan’s professionalism and candor enough to refer their friends to her.

Having lived all over Manhattan, Lilyan now lives on the Upper West Side with her son and dog. Passionate about serving her community, she is a member of OneBlock UWS, Co-Chair of a local public school’s library and garden committees, a volunteer foster person with WaggyTail Rescue, and a volunteer with Brown Harris Stevens Helping Hands, through which she has collected over 1,000 coats for the annual Coat Drive. She is well-versed in New York’s public school districts and is a proud hockey mom.

Lilyan studied architecture and art history and previously worked in advertising.

Testimonials:

"I am in awe of Lilyan's professionalism, integrity, effectiveness, savvy, and beautiful kind spirit. She truly wants everyone to get what they want and be happy, and she's really good at making that happen. I feel incredible gratitude that we had such an amazing broker to guide us." - Jillian H.
"Lilyan surpassed our expectations. From the thoughtful listing description to the open houses and the individual attention she showed each prospective buyer, we knew we were in good hands. She guided us through the process with great advice, yet always listened to us as sellers and understood our concerns. She is extremely efficient - we had a signed contract within a month of listing our property. Throughout the whole experience, we knew Lilyan was working diligently and swiftly to sell our home - in a competitive market like this, there is no one we would rather use." - Tam P.
"Lilyan came in and her energy and attention to detail were just what we needed. When the buyers told her the space was not configured to their liking, Lilyan provided them with a way to picture what it could look like. When the buyers told her the price was too high, they were shown detailed stats of selling comps to reinforce our pricing. On the creative side, Lilyan insisted on having the apartment repainted which helped generate interest. On the deal-making side, she made sure the buyers were qualified and would pass our co-op board. She got to know our board and building in a way that no broker I have worked with has ever bothered to do. Lilyan was relentless, extremely aggressive, and she really gave us comfort knowing that the deal was in capable hands. With Lilyan, we got multiple bids but did not settle until we got the right price. Without the superlative efforts of Lilyan, I struggle to imagine how we would have sold our place; it would have been painful." - William N.
"Lilyan was amazing! She is extremely helpful and resourceful in helping us with marketing costs and staging the apartment when we were trying to put it on the market." - Sylvia W.
"Lilyan Bell had been my real estate broker for the past 11 years or so. During this period, she has sold and rented my apartments in Manhattan. In fact, we are currently engaged in renting one of my units. I can honestly say that Lilyan is one of the very best NYC real estate agents." - Carol G.
"You were exceptional when you sold us 101 West 80th and you were exceptional when you rented it!" - Alan & Donna C. Buyer/Landlord
"After using several brokers with no success, I was referred to Lilyan to sell my property. Her professionalism and mastery of the Manhattan real estate market provided instant results." - Louis C. Investor
"She understood exactly what we were looking for. We loved her candor about which apartments would fare well, both as investments and as homes. And she guided us through the transaction process with ease." - Jeff S.
