Avital is hands down the best agent in Westchester! She's patient, thorough, and truly advocates for her clients. She's not pushy like some of the agents out there, and makes sure to communicate with you every step of the way. And, as a lawyer, she has substantial knowledge of every nuance of the home-buying and home-selling process. We will never work with another agent in Westchester. When we were in the process of buying our first home, she spent almost two years working with us making sure we got exactly what we were looking for. She went out of her way to ensure everything was on the up-and-up. Avital actually went down to the town hall, request records, and checked them over without us having to ask. As it turned out, she found something material the sellers didn't disclose! We had them rectify it before we moved in - but that could have easily been an expense we would have had to bear. Thank you Avital! I can't say it enough -- Avital is simply the best!
Buyer and Seller Client
Tried to give you 6 stars but they only take 5.
Avital is always on top of things and willing to go an extra mile to help you out. She also has great connections when you need to get things done. The real estate is a very tricky business. It's never easy to sell a property in an upscale neighborhood. If you want an all around talent, Avital has it all.

You will not find a more dedicated, knowledgeable, friendly and hardworking real estate professional than Avital. She takes extremely good care of her clients and provides well thought through advice. We listed our house with her, followed all her advice (all of which were reasonable, not you need to gut the place) and had several competitive offers to consider within two weeks in a not bad but not raging market. I recommend Avital without any hesitation.
Seller and Buyer Client
The only thing I regret about selling my house for more than the asking price in less than six weeks is that I won’t be speaking with Avital several times a day anymore. Avital sold me the condo that I currently live in and helped me to sell a house that I had been in for 47 years. The first time I went looking at real estate with her, she suggested the development in which I eventually bought a home. She instinctively knew exactly what was right for me. Avital is resourceful, knowledgeable, thorough and kind. She knows the Westchester real estate market thoroughly, especially Scarsdale where my long-time home was located. In a difficult market, she was able to price and position my home to the utmost advantage. She spent an entire day with a photographer picking the views that showed off the house most favorably. When I needed additional resources - lawyers, inspectors, handyman - Avital recommended excellent people. And, best of all, she is an expert at dealing with all kinds of people. She knows when to be tough and when to concede. Avital is a seasoned professional who clearly loves her work and I can’t imagine a more competent broker.
Avital Soldatenko is a top notch realtor. She was able to get us a buyer the first weekend of our open house. During the initial meetings leading up to sale she found us a stager that helped us get rid of things and arrange our house for the pictures. Out of all the homes I have sold in my lifetime with a realtor, Avital went above and beyond! She is the best!! Thank you Avital!
Avital is simply amazing. Great agent and a wonderful person. She is professional, knowledgeable, and very honest. She truly cares about her clients. Avital saved us and our deal when we were buying a house. Thanks to her due diligence, she prevented a huge mistake that could have costed us a fortune in the future. I can’t recommend her enough!
Avital is 5 stars all around. She sold my house quickly and efficiently to the best buyer. She is easy to work with and knows the market. I recommend her 100%. You will be glad that you chose Avital as your realtor!!
Wanted to take a minute to express our gratitude for the great care and exceptional service your provided during the house looking/buying process. With every step you went the extra mile and always had answers...even to questions we didn't know to ask. We also appreciate your advice with the remodeling process and hope to continue to tap into your expertise. You can be sure we will be recommending you to everyone we know.
Thank you again for everything! We are so happy we made the last minute decision to stop by your open house

Avital was great! She took the time to understand what we were looking for and used he extensive local experience to help us quickly narrow down the field. Most importantly, she not only directed us to properties that met our preferences but pointed out and steered us away from potential pittfalls like only a real expert can. With her support we felt confident with about our decision and are very happy indeed.
Avital was instrumental in helping me and my husband sell the home of my parents. Her incredible dedication and tremendous effort was much appreciated by both of us. We really felt that she went above and beyond in every aspect and thanks to her we were able to maximize the sale price, which went above the asking amount listed. She clearly has a keen understanding of the market. Her thoughtful ideas such as digitally staging the property enhanced buyer interest significantly and were critical in peaking enthusiasm in the property. Overall we had an easy selling experience and we credit her strongly for that in every specific aspect and detail. We plan to recommend her to everybody.

Avital is the consummate professional, and was a pleasure to deal with as our Real Estate Broker. She helped to orient us to a new locale, and was able to place us in a house and neighborhood that perfectly met all of our needs.
She was always prepared, very flexible, and really took the time to listen to our needs.
Her attention to detail is unsurpassed, and she has great foresight with regard to future home improvements, helping the buyer to visualize what will work best in terms of future construction/home improvement.
To the this day, we are still happy that she reinforced the notion of having French drains, something that turned out to be very useful in the wake of many storms and others' basement floodings.
Avital is very patient, and no question was too small or insignificant.
We decided to sell our house while we were living back in France. For several years Avital took care of renting the house and when we decided to sell it, we naturally asked Avital to sell it . Even though the market wasn't very good, the house was sold within 6 months.
