Originally from sunny Sydney, Australia, Zara decided to hop the pond and make her way to the Upper West Side. Zara remembers falling in love with the Upper West Side as soon as she visited New York. Now, she can’t imagine ever leaving.

Zara has worked in customer service and sales since she was 15 years old, making her a proficient listener – the most important skill a realtor can have. Is your wishlist uniquely extensive? No problem. Zara will listen to you and bring you exactly what you are looking for.

Zara is also well-traveled, just another thing that sets her apart from the rest. She has traveled throughout Europe, Asia, and the U.S. Zara has experienced diverse cultures, giving her a distinctive flare when it comes to real estate. Now, she enjoys staying close to home. Zara loves being a part of the Upper West Side community, biking through Central and Riverside Parks, and playing with her adorable dachshund Frankles.

Renter Testimonial

Finding an apartment in NYC is always a challenge, but we could not have been happier with LWYLR and specifically our agent Zara Amor. Zara completely assumed accountability for finding us an apartment within our budget, desired neighborhood, preference for amenities, and any factors we brought to the table. She was always in communication throughout the process and truly took the time to find us the best place possible. We are thrilled with our new apartment and wholeheartedly recommend Zara and Mike at LWYLR for anyone seeking an honest, hard-working, motivated team dedicated to finding them a great apartment.

What separates this team from other agencies was their ability to listen to exactly what we wanted, and focus on showing us only apartments that met that criteria. No time was wasted seeing any apartments we could not afford, or didn’t meet our basic set of criteria. A big thank you to Zara and Mike, we could not be happier with the effort they put in for us. I HIGHLY recommend Love Where You Live Realty.

We’ve been supported so very excellent by Zara Amor during the move of my wife and I! We visited NYC in September, when we were there for a week to explore the various neighbourhoods. Because Zara moved to NYC not too long ago from abroad, we clicked because our stories were comparable and she pretty well had a feeling for our wants and needs.

During the time we were back in NL she kept in touch, and towards the date we were actually flying here she started mailing and texting apartments that indeed matched our needs very well.

What I liked about visiting apartments with her is the fact that she’s honest up front – for example, “I’m showing this so you have a feeling for the cheapest 2br’s in the neighbourhood” or “We’re visiting this one because it has a terrace”. Or even “the next one is a bit weird, but big anyways, I expect it isn’t really for you, but we can take a look anyways”. Nice and transparent.

I also like that Zara takes time for you. She responds quickly to texts and emails, she takes time to chat even if it isn’t about the apartment itself, but about moving or buying furniture or… It feels like she’s committed.

I didn’t feel pressured to make a decision at all. Also after signing Zara remains interested. It often happens that agents drop you like a brick because they are focussing on making money on the next guy.

Long story short, we got a super nice apartment within our budget, we’ve been living there happily for about two months now! Thanks!

We are not the “dream clients” for a realtor especially in NYC. We are super picky, have 2 dogs, and only wanted one specific type of apartment that had a long list of criteria that we couldn’t compromise on. I had tried to get an apartment on the upper west side 2 years ago, enlisting an agent ( not from LWYLR) and looked at apartments. That adventure was a disaster and when I told them the apartments they were showing me were not hitting any of the points on my list- their answer was ” This in New York City, you get what you get”.

Fast forward a year and another try at the Upper West Side. We met Zara from Love Where You Live and started looking at apartments ( we loved the ” I love the Upper West Side website!) After many many listings we found our dream apartment. She never lost sight of our goal and we felt like we were being taken care of at all times. The whole team is great and if you are looking to get into this area there is no other choice.

Buyer Testimonial

I was fortunate to have the pleasure of working with Zara Amor to find my first home. More than a real estate broker, Zara quickly became my sounding board, a confidante, and ultimately a friend. She was able to adapt to my preferences very quickly; she filtered though properties very efficiently and only brought apartments to my attention that she knew would fill my stringent qualifications. Like most NYC real estate pursuits, mine was also filled with several inevitable offers that fell through. When I was close to giving up and waiting for the real estate market to cool down,  Zara brought an apartment to my attention that she confidently claimed I needed to see. This apartment ultimately became my first one-bedroom thanks to Zara. Her resolve, professionalism, and good judgement are second to none amongst real estate brokers!

Zara Amor is the most professional real estate agent I have ever worked with. Her communication is quick and efficient, her dedication remarkable. Despite the difficulties of my situation (international, furnished, six months only) she was able to find me the most lovely, well-kept apartment in the middle of the Upper West Side that easily fits into my budget. Without a doubt I would recommend Zara to anyone, for she has made me feel very much at home in New York.

I can’t recommend love where you live reality enough, in particular our broker Zara Amor. Zara listened to exactly what I wanted and didn’t waste my time showing me places that didn’t meet my requirements. She was never pushy and always patient. I was 8 months pregnant needing to move to a larger apartment from our existing one bedroom. I was about to give in and postpone the search to after the baby arrived when Zara suggested I view a three bedroom in a beautiful location. Although it was larger than we wanted it was within our price range so we checked it out. My husband and I fell in love with it immediately and now have more room than we know what to do with. The location is gorgeous and we spend our afternoons strolling down riverside park. If it weren’t for Zara we would never have considered a three bedroom apartment. Zara ensured everything moved along quickly and stress free so we were in our new place and settled before the baby arrived.

I cannot recommend Zara enough, she will find you a home with as much care and attention as though she were looking for herself.

Seller Testimonial

I recently had the pleasure of working with Zara Amor to sell my apartment at 140 West 69 St. Zara is a very competent and knowledgeable professional, with extensive knowledge of the real estate market. Her attention to detail is impeccable. She guided me step-by-step through the process, from listing to closing, and every bit of advice was right on point. I credit her expertise with selling my home in just 24 hours! I was very lucky to have her as my agent! She responded to every phone call, email, and text immediately. I feel that she is the perfect real estate agent, and give her the highest recommendation!

Here is something you don’t hear everyday, we had an amazing relocation into the UWS largely due to Zara and Mike’s work. They were thorough, dedicated and professional from the first contact to move in. They easily adapted to our changing requirements and were sources of great information and direction as we worked through the relocation process. Even when Zara went off the grid to have a baby, there was no gap in service and attention. We were well taken care of. I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed with their advocacy on our behalf. There was some miscommunication with our potential new landlord and the LWYL folks were all over it and fixed the situation seamlessly and elegantly.

We highly recommend these folks and we will definitely use them again.

While my girlfriend nor I have ever written an online review, we wanted to express how pleased we were working with Love Where You Live Realty– specifically Zara Amor– in our recent move to the Upper West Side.

Both of us knew that we wanted to move to a one-bedroom apartment on the UWS. Zara was exceptionally knowledgable about the neighborhood. In checking out a few potential spots, Zara often bumped into landlords and brokers that she had worked with before. Her knowledge and connections led us to our current apartment. Zara took our preferences that we provided to her ahead of meeting up and showed us the perfect apartment. We wouldn’t have found anything close to as ideal without Zara’s help.

Zara was incredibly helpful in the process after we chose to apply for the apartment. She demystified the process by staying in constant contact with us, even offering to meet separately with various family members of ours to show the apartment again.

Would highly, highly recommend Zara and her firm to anyone looking in the UWS. She added significant value to our apartment search process.

Landlord Testimonial

I own a co-op on the Upper West Side and have had Zara rent my apartment twice now. Zara is a friendly, energetic, organized young lady that makes the subletting process (which is typically very stressful truly stress-free). She works for a great and supportive company that has an office just a block away, and they specialize on the Upper West Side which I like. I would recommend Zara Amor and Love Where You Live Realty” without hesitation!
