They had listings on the Forbes Top 10 most expensive properties for sale lists in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2013. Elizabeth possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of the Manhattan real estate market and an excellent business sense. She is low key and personable. It's a winning combination that has earned her a stellar reputation during her 25-year career selling residential and commercial properties. She is responsible for well over $1.7 billion in sales.
A swift glance at her current listings and past sales immediately indicates that she is more than comfortable in the world of high end luxury properties. Captains of industry, record moguls, celebrities, models, tycoons, actors and actresses alike are no strangers to Elizabeth. But she has her priorities straight, recognizing residential real estate's dual role as a personal investment and also as an important financial one. This is where her keen financial acumen comes into play. She has raised over $2.2 billion for development projects. Her approach, however, continues to be conservative. From small to large transactions alike, she has the gift of listening to and understanding the unique needs of every single client. Her focus is solely on creating that perfect match, and effecting the most appropriate and fitting purchase possible.
Working closely with Brenda, Elizabeth brings considerable experience, financial savvy and extensive knowledge of co-op boards on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side, a perfect counterpoint to Brenda's flair for marketing and public relations. Together, they produce extraordinary marketing materials for their clients such as beautiful brochures and compelling ads, an impressive array of sales tools that will showcase properties to their best advantage.
Elizabeth always gives her full and undivided attention. Nothing deflects her from the purpose at hand. A winning smile, a calm assured manner and unparalleled knowledge of the market inspire confidence that your purchase or sale is being handled by a consummate and most dedicated professional.
