About Me

The most important metric of the value of Elizabeth Lawton's work has always been how much it improves the lives of her clients. Her prior experiences, while quite varied and intellectually engaging, did not bring her true fulfillment. In real estate, Elizabeth has found her place in the pace of a constantly-evolving market, the genuine personal relationships formed, the competitive nature of the field, and the ability to hone her own creativity within her brand.

With her drive, diligence and stellar customer service skills, Elizabeth has proven to be an excellent ally when negotiating the twists and turns of the New York City real estate market. When not actively with clients, she immerses herself in the market as often as she can, from understanding the inventory through open houses to experiencing neighborhoods first hand to gain a local's perspective. Priding herself on her knack for efficiency, Elizabeth puts a great deal of thought and effort into providing the best possible experience for her clients, doing all she can to see to it that their needs are met.

A seasoned and highly-proficient agent in both the sales and rental market in Manhattan and Brooklyn, her business model is centered on preparedness and complete fluency in the product in order to execute the deal in an efficient and seamless manner. Elizabeth's eclectic background offers her a unique prospective on life and an extremely creative approach to the sales and rental process, which has given her customers an upper hand in comparison to standard practices.

After growing up in Boston, Elizabeth received a B.S. in Biology from the University of Chicago and remains an active alumna. While there, she was an NCAA national champion cross-country and track and field athlete, but nowadays she has slowed the pace and increased the mileage, turning into a devoted marathoner. Her unwavering endurance and complete commitment to a cause carries over from her running life into her professional work ethic.

Because life is all about the balance, Elizabeth is also a passionate foodie, constantly on the constant quest to eat her way around Manhattan. As an avid writer, she has crafted a very colorful blog, www.lizlawton.com, and plans to write a book in the coming years. Having lived in the East Village for four years before recently becoming a Chinatown resident, Elizabeth knows downtown like the back of her hand and has garnered this same level of knowledge for the entire main island and Brooklyn.

"Liz Lawton is the hardest working and most thoughtful person we've ever met in our collective 20 years of NYC real estate experience. She has found us affordable, unicorn-quality rentals in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and moved mountains in brokering a purchase and then a sale for us in the sometimes treacherous world of NYC co-ops. Liz is easy to work with because she listens well and is a clear and responsive communicator. We have always appreciated her professional and creative approach to problem-solving in the often Byzantine pursuit of four walls and a roof. We look forward to working with Liz again in the future."
- Isabell R. and Ken Z.

"Liz was an unbelievable partner during my first home purchase. She is equally as knowledgeable about the full market as she has specific advice for first-time buyers. From understanding my needs to navigating the nuances of purchasing a home needing renovation to emotional support throughout, I could not have done it without her!"
- Samantha P.

"As first-time home buyers, we were lucky to have found such a proactive and thoughtful agent. Liz really listened to what we were looking for and worked tirelessly and patiently to help us find our dream home, navigate the bidding process, and ensure a successful closing. We have been loving our apartment and neighborhood. Thank you Liz!"
- Betty Z. and Michael D.

"Elizabeth Lawton worked with our family to purchase an apartment in Manhattan in July of 2015. It was a pleasure to work with Elizabeth. She was efficient, thorough and very attentive to our needs. With her assistance we were able to identify the right apartment to purchase in a very short period of time. Elizabeth is also extremely personable and friendly. We had a very positive experience in our interaction with Elizabeth."
- Shazma and Arshad M.
