About Me

"Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties" -Erich Fromm The business of real estate doesn't generally strike one as a creative endeavor. However, it doesn't take long to realize how important a creative outlook can be to the difference in making a successful transaction happen. As a real estate broker with a creative background, I feel the services I provide my clients greatly reflect this philosophy. Before entering real estate, I spent a number of years in creative fields. Beginning in the fashion industry, I worked in the studios of both Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. In both companies, I honed my skills of grace under pressure, meeting deadlines and most importantly of being a trusted individual. Daily exposure to high profile people in my business dealings, equipped me with a great respect for busy lives, and a keen sense of protecting privacy. Home fashion design was the next move for me. I worked as a textile artist and representative designing for and calling on top clientele for a commercial home product design firm. I then brought this experience to an interior design firm and began working more closely with "end user" clients. I found I really enjoyed the creative collaboration with people on how to maximize the potential of their spaces and increasing their enjoyment and use of their homes. Real estate was the next natural transition for me. Beginning my real estate career in a high-end boutique firm on the Upper West Side, my work began with my over seeing of top-quality renovations on stately pre-war architecture owned by the principal of the firm as well as by his great clientele. It was a demanding and exciting process to be a part of, and gave me valuable insights into how pre-war spaces can be transformed with respect for their original vision. Witnessing the revitalization of such beautiful architectural spaces quickly drew me in to wanting to be a part of showing them off for their beauty and investment value, and to be a part of bringing the properties their next owners. It wasn't long before I was licensed, proudly entrusted with handling the firms very best exclusives and clientele, and off on an exciting career path in real estate. Specializing in pre-war buildings, lofts and townhouses, I am in architectural bliss on a daily basis. Each day is a day of discovery and holds amazing possibilities for beauty and investment. As a homeowner myself, I take the process of assisting clients with the sale and purchase of property quite seriously and enthusiastically. When I represent a property, I hold great respect for the privacy, possessions and interests of the owner. I am always aware I am there to provide a service. When representing a buyer or tenant, I take much care in gaining a sense of who they are and how they expect a property to support their daily lives. I really pay attention to the requirements and expectations of those I work with, and pride myself on building lasting relationships with my clients. As a result, I both offer and enjoy great loyalty and repeat business with them. Should you decide to work with me, you will have at your service someone with experience, vision, accessibility, patience and creative determination. I look forward to hearing from you!
