“Luck is the crossroads where preparation and opportunity meet.”
Finding the home you love isn’t simply a matter of luck. It’s a matter of capitalizing on a good opportunity. As a real estate broker, my goal is to make sure my clients have the knowledge (and the financial preparation) to act with confidence. By considering both the buyer’s and seller’s points of view and paying attention to all the details, I can ensure that both sides are ultimately satisfied with the outcome.
After eleven years of selling television programming to major broadcasters all over the world, I came to real estate with a strong background in negotiation, marketing, financial expertise and customer service focus. As Director of International Sales at MTV Networks and HBO, I also learned how to develop close working relationships with people of all nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. Nothing pleases me more than successfully matching a buyer and a seller, facilitating a “meeting of the minds” to make a deal happen, and establishing solid, long-lasting professional relationships based on mutual trust, honesty and integrity.
A native New Yorker and resident of the Upper West Side for more than fifteen years, I’ve purchased and sold three cooperative apartments, and lived through extensive (and messy!) renovations. I know firsthand that the process can feel overwhelming to the buyer and the seller, and I’ll do the very best I can to guide my clients through all the steps necessary to see a deal through from start to finish.
My educational background includes a BA in Economics and French Studies from Mount Holyoke College, a semester abroad in Paris and an MBA in Finance from New York University’s Stern School of Business. I am fluent in French, proficient in Spanish and can order a meal with gusto in several other languages! I’m ready to put these skills to work for you to market your current home or help you find a new one.
When I’m not working, I enjoy cooking and checking out the New York restaurant scene, traveling and staying home with my husband (a wonderful NYC firefighter) and our 2 children, playing softball in Central Park, and exploring this fantastic and ever-changing city. I am looking forward to meeting you and discussing your specific real estate needs.
