Purchasing property in Israel can be difficult, but My Israel Property is here to help. The business provides personalized and customized real estate services for those looking to purchase property in Israel. Helmed by former New Jersey residents and longtime friends Ilana Garber and Sandi Ryker, the company strives to make these oftentimes burdensome and stressful processes as simple and straightforward as possible. In addition to selling homes, apartments, and other such investment property, they also have a management branch that supports the properties of their clients. Backed by years of real estate experience, the company has helped numerous families find the right home or investment, and continues to provide services to those in need.

Garber and Ryker created My Israel Property after years of friendship that blossomed during their school days. They attended Frisch together, and after moving to the same town in Israel –Zichron Yaakov – they decided to team up as partners and open their own real estate business. Thus, My Israel Property was born. In the years since its creation, the company has become renowned for its quality of service, detail-oriented way of thinking, and reliability.

“We are an Israeli business that was homegrown in New Jersey,” Garber said in an interview with the Queens Jewish Link. “[Ryker] and I met when we were younger, and we were very close. We ended up in the same town in Israel, and since we both had a long history working in real estate, we decided it would be smart to work together. The company we created built itself on reliability and trust, and we always want our clients to know we have their backs. We might be living in Israel, but we also know and understand, culturally, what people are looking for.”

For those making aliyah or looking to purchase a vacation home in Israel, it can be a daunting process to find a property that matches what they’re looking for. Garber and Ryker will handle the heavy lifting using a personalized system customized to each individual. They do so because, as they explain on their website, “no two homes are alike, and no two clients are alike.”

“We put a lot of effort into making our clients feel at home with us,” Ryker shared. “We try to make the process familiar and easy to follow. Experiencing something that’s unfamiliar is worrying, we know it is, so we try to establish a trust and relationship so that our clients feel like they’re connecting with a friend. And we always have their best interests in mind. Our service extends beyond just the typical with how we also connect clients looking to do renovations with the right people – trustworthy people – from architects to project managers. My Israel Property is a full-service business.”

Making clients feel confident and comfortable is one of the biggest parts of the company. In addition to helping them feel pleased with the property or investment, Garber and Ryker want clients to come away satisfied and excited. Putting in that extra effort is what they feel sets them apart from other such businesses.

“We never want clients to feel pressured,” Garber noted. “We’re always conscious of their budget and never want them to feel like they are overextending themselves. It matters a lot to us, and is why we try so hard to make sure everyone is feeling comfortable.”

Garber will be in the New York area starting November 19 to meet with clients. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.
