I love my work as a real estate professional because my clients are so diverse and so are the ways I serve you. I provide specialized attention, whether you’re looking to buy your first home or downsize from your home of 20 years. I was recently named KW’s Top #7 agent in volume sales in the New York Tristate Region.
I provide a concierge service and will always listen closely to your needs. It’s not simply a transaction foe me; it’s a relationship.
I include extensive custom staging as part of the package when I list a home. Because I’m also a developer, and renovate and build homes, I can accurately estimate the cost of any improvements you are considering. My expertise will help you determine the true price of selling or purchasing your home.
Prior to joining the real estate industry, I spent 25 years in the entertainment industry. I was in charge of Programming/Production for Food Network for a decade, and spent time at MTV, Nickelodeon, the BBC and National Geographic. I am a strong negotiator and will help you get the best deal possible.
I pride myself on providing the best possible service, and can make the buying and selling process smooth and smart. I look forward to hearing from you.
"Eileen was fantastic!! She was helpful every step of the way, from narrowing our search to certain towns, discussing our needs and suggesting areas that fit our price points, to negotiating the contract. I would recommend Eileen to any person looking got a realtor."
"Eileen is the very best agent I have ever worked with. She was knowledgeable about the neighborhoods we were looking in. She was very upfront and honest about everything. I would not go through the process with anyone else."

"Eileen was so responsive and professional throughout our buying and selling process. She always listened carefully to make sure she understood our needs and then worked so hard for us to ensure we found the perfect new home (we were downsizing). She made sure that the home we were selling was presented in the best way to show off its charms and she was diligent in ensuring everything was considered and well managed right up to (and even after) we closed. We loved working with her and we thoroughly recommend her!"
"Eileen was my realtor, advocate (and sometimes my shrink :) as I made a significant move from the home I raised my family in to a smaller home 10 minutes away. She told me what I needed to spend money on and what I didn't. And when it came to showing me houses, she picked houses specifically based on my criteria. Some of my friends say their realtors put them on a "feed" with all houses in a certain range and zip code. That would have driven me nuts. And then when I found the perfect house, she walked through and gave me ideas on how I might use the house and what furniture I had would fit where. I love my new home. I wish I had moved sooner. And I could not recommend Eileen Opatut highly enough."

"As first time home buyers, my husband and I couldn't have asked for a better agent than Eileen. We were on the fence about buying something renovated vs buying and renovating ourselves. Eileen educated us every step of the way. She has an amazing eye for potential in a house, but also knew when to tell us to walk away. In the end, Eileen helped us find our dream home in a town that was outside of her typical territory. She learned the market in Ridgewood for us, and in the end negotiated with a FSBO deal with a difficult owner. Eileen worked tirelessly to get us our home for a price that we could afford. Beyond her work ethic, Eileen is a tremendously kind and interesting person who cares so much about her clients. I would recommend Eileen to anyone and everyone. She is by far the best!"
