Wanda Mercado is a native New Yorker who feels that New York City – saturated with its culture, excitement and energy - is one of the best places in the world to live. She also feels that when you buy or rent an apartment in New York City and it's outer boroughs, it is more than a place for you to live. She believes that where you live should reflect both you and your lifestyle. Wanda combines her seasoned “street-smart savvy” and a captivating “people personality” to make her renters, buyers and sellers know that they are in the hands of the ultimate experienced, well-informed, caring professional. She possesses a great ability to relate to people and to help them in their search for their perfect home, however big or small. Wanda is the go-to agent to get the deal done and feels great about it ! Wanda chose Real Estate as a career because it allowed her and continues to allow her to use her previous Sales and Financial business and life experiences to their fullest potential. Every day, every client is given her complete attention, whether they're in the market for that studio or loft in trendy NoHo or the Upper West Side, the coveted penthouse suites in Midtown or the must have house in one of our outer boroughs. During the early nineties, her early years in the finance industry, a professional relationship with Upton Realty Group’s Principal, Sherwin Zanjanian was established and ultimately turned into a long-standing friendship. The mutual respect for their respective professional capabilities then and now brought them together again at the Upton Realty Group start up and still continues years later. Some of Wanda’s favorite leisure time passions (whenever possible, that is) include creating scented candles in her home as her type of zen-therapy, keeping ahead of the real estate and financial curves and browsing through the wondrous miles of books at our beloved Strands Books on Broadway.
