It’s important to work with a good realtor when buying, and something to look for is someone who knows the area well. Working with an experienced Upper East Side realtor is a must if you are buying in this affluent and sought after part of New York. Although it’s a fairly compact area to the east of Central Park, a realtor familiar with the area can point you in the right direction, whether you’re looking for something family friendly, or a state of the art apartment. And there is plenty to like about this part of town. Central Park is within easy reach, as are some of the country’s best museums, and transportation links are excellent. The UES, as it’s sometimes known, also enjoys a somewhat slower pace from other areas of the city, and that’s a big appeal for many buyers.
