The team - composed of Ariel Tirosh,  Joyce Bernstein,  Iman Bacodari,  David Cooper,  Max Dobens,  Amelia Telfer and Payam Hakakian- has sold more than $500,000,000 in Manhattan real estate. They are renowned for their industry acumen, creative marketing campaigns, negotiation skills and superior customer service. The team's collective finger is on the pulse of the city's fluid real estate market, meaning the counsel that they provide their clients - whether they are sellers, buyers or investors - is given in ‘real-time' and not based on stale facts. That means that their pricing recommendations, advice on when to sell or to buy, and market forecasts are taken very seriously by their clients. Their customers know that the team is personally invested in their housing quest and that each team member will address their needs as if they were their very own.

Their success comes from the top - Jacky. A managing director at Prudential Douglas Elliman, she does not expect success; she demands it. And she leads by example. She is among the top 1% of the city's nearly 30,000 licensed real estate brokers and is within the top one percentile of Prudential Douglas Elliman's 3,300 agent network. She is one of the most respected and recognized agents in the city

She carefully hand-picked her team, choosing personalities and talents that are diverse and complementary. They have woven their respective strengths and differences into a fabric of accomplishment and ability. The team speaks English, Spanish, Hebrew and Farsi. Team members, several of whom are born-and-bred New Yorkers, have lived in Europe, South America, Australia, and the Middle East. They are married and single; with children and without. They work with families looking for larger homes; a native New Yorker seeking a Fifth Avenue co-op; a bi-coastal professional looking for a pied-a-terre; or an international buyer who wants an investment property. Unlike most real estate teams, the Jacky Teplitzky team covers the entire island of Manhattan which allows them to offer their clients the broadest selection in terms of properties, neighborhoods and price points. Their versatility and acumen are well-respected by the media. Team members have been on "Open House NYC," the WNBC-TV real estate program multiple times. And they've been quoted in a variety of top-tier media including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, and

To keep their edge as sharp as possible, the Jacky Teplitzky team works with an award-winning business consultant and a full-service public relations firm. They employ a full-time graphic designer whose sophisticated artistic skills make each piece a distinct work of art. She carefully crafts her work so that each piece - whether it's an invitation, a marketing mailer, or floor plan - reflects the essence of the client's home. She visits each and every property to see it first-hand and to get her creative juices going. No other real estate team in Manhattan offers this conglomeration of services.

They are notable in their ability to assemble co-op board packages, one of the most intricate and sensitive components of the home-buying phase. They advise their clients though each careful step and review the packages with a fine-tooth comb. Their hard work pays off: they have an extremely high success rate in getting co-op board packages approved.

So, if you want to work with a team that goes beyond the standard definition, call or email the Jacky Teplitzky team. They are happy to meet with you to discuss your real estate buying, selling or investment decisions. And you will have the opportunity to see first-hand who they are - simply, the best in the real estate industry.
