Brokered the 4th most expensive sale of 2013 in New York City
Board Certified New York Residential Specialist

Since 2004, Nora Ariffin has excelled as a top-producing broker who earned glowing accolades for her impressive sales performance. She went from Rookie of the Year at Halstead to winning coveted awards like the prestigious Producer’s Council, Platinum and Gold Circle 2010, and a place in the Top 5% companywide. Her expert skills and stylish look also got Nora featured as one of “9 Women Who Master Power and Style” in Oprah Winfrey’s popular “O” Magazine, recognizing her success in placing clients in the most exclusive apartments and effectively navigating deals in “New York City's ruthless housing market.”

Nora’s greatest reward, however, is the referrals and repeat business from a high-profile clientele who appreciate the exemplary service, discretion and dedication with which she handles their discerning needs. What sets Nora apart is her unique approach guiding clients seamlessly through the sale or purchase process and empowering them with pertinent information that results in smart decisions. “I'm here to educate, not force a deal,” Nora says. “My reputation is at stake, and my role is to be every client's advocate—their ambassador.”A Manhattan resident for over 30 years, Nora is driven by boundless energy and passion for New York that shines through in her work. Her vast market knowledge, expert service, and sharp negotiating skills arm every client with what's needed to make their deals an inevitable success.

“Coming into this with absolutely no idea of how NYC real estate worked, Nora took time to clearly explain the facts and continually stay in touch with updates. Her knowledge and expertise helped me understand all aspects of the market, and her flexible, patient, and no-pressure approach made a normally stressful and frustrating experience pleasant and exciting. Nora’s connections and professionalism enabled me to purchase my dream apartment.” ~ Naomi L.

No matter what she's set her mind on, Nora has always enjoyed great accomplishments. She hit the runways of Paris at age 17, and achieved international fame as the first Asian model to represent ‘ALLURE’ for Chanel Perfume. When Seventh Avenue took notice, she moved to Manhattan and became one of the faces of Cover Girl cosmetics and L’Oreal Feria Hair worldwide, appearing three stories high on a Times Square billboard. Nora also completed professional actor training in NYC that led to many roles in national commercials, and the leading role in two feature films, one internationally acclaimed. Just as she took the world of modeling and entertainment by storm, marketing herself to success, Nora does the same in real estate with the ingenuity, tenacity and creativity that help clients excel.

Fluent in English, French, and Malay, Nora was born and raised in Singapore. She has lived in Europe and South Africa, as well as San Francisco. Nora brings to her work a worldly perspective, natural ability to relate to clients of all cultures, and strong local knowledge of the city she loves so dearly.

Nora Ariffin

Nora Ariffin a excellé en tant que courtier depuis le début de sa carrière en 2004 dans l'immobilier. Elle a gagné de nombreux prix pour sa réussite commerciale impressionnante. Elle a été nominée pour le Real Estate Board of NY’s Rookie of the Year en 2005, puis par la suite promue au poste de vice-président et vice-président principal. Elle a aussi remporté des prix convoités y compris dans les groupes prestigieux de l'entreprise Producer's Council, Platinum and Gold Circle 2010. Elle a aussi fait partie des premiers 5% de toute l'entreprise.

Nora a également été présentée comme l'une des "9 femmes qui maîtrisent à la perfection puissance et élégance" dans le célèbre "O" magazine d'Oprah Winfrey pour ses compétences d'experte et son style élégant. Dans l'article, elle a été reconnue pour son excellente capacité à placer les clients dans des appartements les plus exclusifs et à gérer les affaires avec compétence et efficacité sur le "marché du logement impitoyable de New York".

En tout cas, les plus grandes récompenses de Nora sont les références et les affaires de répétition de ses clients savants. Son approche exceptionnelle qu'elle utilise pour guider ses clients à travers le processus de vente ou d'achat la rend unique; elle leur fournit toutes les informations pertinentes leur permettant d'arriver à de bonnes décisions et au meilleur prix. "Je suis là pour renseigner mes clients et non pas les forcer dans une affaire. Je ne veux pas risquer ma réputation car mon rôle est d'être un avocat pour leurs besoins.”

Résident à Manhattan depuis plus de 20 ans, Nora a une énergie naturelle et une passion pour New York qui se remarque dans son travail. Sa grande connaissance, son service expert et ses techniques de négociation solides donnent à chaque client tout ce dont il a besoin pour s'assurer du succès de leurs offres.

"En arrivant sans aucune notion concernant l'immobilier à New York, Nora a pris le temps d'expliquer clairement les faits et rester continuellement au courant des mises à jour. Ses connaissances et son expertise m'ont aidé à comprendre tous les aspects de l'immobilier à Manhattan. Ce qui serait normalement être une expérience stressante et frustrante a été transformé en une expérience agréable grâce à la flexibilité et la patience de Nora. Les contacts et le professionnalisme de Nora m'a permis d'acheter l'appartement de mes rêves". ~ Naomi Lahaie

Nora est née et a été élevée à Singapour. A 16 ans elle est devenue mannequin à Paris, en France et a atteint une renommée internationale pour avoir été la première mannequin asiatique à représenter ‘ALLURE’ pour les parfums de Chanel. Quand Septième Avenue a fait la connaissance de Nora, Nora a déménagé à Manhattan et est devenue l'un des visages de la cosmétique ‘Cover Girl’ et ‘L'Oréal Feria Hair'. Cette campagne de publicité mondiale a fait l'affiche à Times Square sur un panneau publicitaire. Nora a aussi suivi des cours de théâtre professionnel à New York qui l'a conduite à obtention de nombreux rôles dans des publicités nationales et le rôle principal dans deux films, dont un qui a connu un succès international.

Nora parle couramment anglais, français et malais. Elle a vécu à l'étranger : en Europe, en Afrique du Sud et à San Francisco. Elle est dévouée à son travail dans lequel elle excelle tant elle a une capacité innée à comprendre les clients de toute origine. Elle a aussi de bonnes connaissances sur sa ville qu'elle chérit tant.
