A native New Yorker, Ellen Kapit, Associate Broker, spent many years as a Vice President at a major international advertising agency. Ever diligent and a strong negotiator, Ellen puts forth both integrity and tenacity, which have made her invaluable to her customers. Well versed in current technology, Ellen built and designed her own website. She regularly uses video, email, web ads and more to market her exclusive properties. Customer loyalty and hard work are her hallmarks of success.
Clients include many celebrities, advertising professionals, writers and actors and a large international circle from France, Sweden and the UK, to name a few. Real estate was not only Ellen's personal hobby, but also a passion, and therefore the natural transition was to take it to full-time status years ago. Ellen is currently Vice President of her co-op board and serves on both the Finance and Renovations committees. Ellen's expert background in advertising, marketing and sales for some of the top advertisers in the U.S. coupled with her deep involvement in her building management has trained her to provide the very best service possible.
Ellen received her BA from the University of Miami and holds a Certificate in Interactive Media from Pratt. Ellen is fully ensconced in a landmark prewar building at Columbus Circle with her sheepdog and spaniel pup. She is a passionate advocate for animals and volunteers visiting terminally ill patients that have little or no families. Weekends are spent in Sag Harbor, New York when she is not doing open houses.
