About Yael

YAEL DUNAYER

MOST HOME BUYERS BUY EMOTIONALLY - THEY NEED TO SEE AND FEEL THEMSELVES LIVING HAPPILY AND COMFORTABLY IN THEIR NEW HOME. STAGING BRINGS OUT THE BEAUTY OF THE SPACE, ENHANCES GOOD FEATURES, WORKS AROUND IMPERFECTIONS, AND ELIMINATES UNKNOWNS. I SEE STAGING AS AN INVESTMENT, NOT AN EXPENSE.

Staging and Design Partner – Yael Dunayer’s commendable mix of tenacity and level-headedness has been a cornerstone of her real estate career and beyond. Well-known for her logical reasoning, unparalleled problem solving, and combining organizational, leadership, and team player skills. Yael’s creativity and infectious positivity add a special touch to any project she is involved in.

Yael, along with her husband Barak and their team members have all partnered with Jacky Teplitzky and her team at Douglas Elliman after 20 years in the real estate business. Together, they formed the Teplitzky Dunayer Team as a mega team, creating bigger opportunities, and elevated levels of service for their clients, team members, and referral partners. Yael’s primary role is providing the team’s exclusive clients with a staging consultation where she helps transform clients’ homes into marketable showpieces to enhance their sale value. In addition, Yael handles financial management and business development. Prior to forming the Teplitzky Dunayer Team at Douglas Elliman, she spent seven years at Halstead running one of the top teams in the company, and 12 years in a residential real estate firm called Barak Realty where together with her husband, Barak, she led the firm through several growth stages and multiple market conditions. Yael had a diverse set of roles – from managing the company’s finances, to offering her guidance and support to both agents and managers as a real estate and business expert. Her superb efficiency, eye for design, leadership, and multi-tasking abilities were instrumental in implementing and organizing the firm’s expansion.

Prior to entering real estate, Yael served in the Israeli army for two years, and later worked for the Corporate Sales Department at the Renaissance Hotel in Tel-Aviv winning awards for excellence in sales and customer service as well as employee of the year recognition. Upon moving to New York City in 1996, Yael worked for the Government of Israel Mission to the USA where she also earned an employee of the year award, and then served as the Director of Business Development for a major Internet software company which was subsequently successfully sold. She holds a BS degree in International Business and an MBA degree in Finance.

Yael lives on the Upper West Side with her husband Barak, and their three daughters, Maya, who graduated from Stuyvesant High School and is currently attending Tel Aviv University, and Noa and Shira, who both attend gifted and talented programs at MS 54 and PS 166. When her schedule permits, she enjoys traveling around the world, dining out, dancing (former award-winning ballroom and Latin dancer), and visiting her family in Israel. Yael is a proud supporter of the UJA Federation where she serves as a member of the UJA Professional Women’s board, mentors young professional women of the UJA mentorship program, participates in UJA “Taking the Lead” leadership program, and is an active member of the NY Lions of Judah. In addition, Yael was selected to be part of the IAC (Israeli American Council) Gvanim Ramon Women’s Leadership Program, a member of the Harmonie Club, as well as a board member of the Women’s Club at the Fifth Avenue Synagogue. Yael and her husband support various causes including Magen David Adom - Israel’s National Emergency and Ambulance Service, Belev Echad – a global movement supporting Israeli Defense Forces wounded soldiers, the Metropolitan Opera, and The American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
