About The Jane Advisory
The Jane Advisory was founded in 2016 as The Danielle Lurie Team, after Danielle was lauded as Corcoran’s Top New Sales Agent across all Manhattan and Brooklyn. Five women were added over five years, and in 2021, the name was changed to reflect their collaborative partnership. The Jane Advisory is inspired by Jane Jacobs, whose pioneering vision of urban life centered on the joy and beauty of human community. We share a boots-to-the-ground approach and are expertly skilled at match-making clients with their perfect next home or with the right buyer for their property. As a team we are committed to prioritizing people over deals, and to living out the belief that the work of home should be thoughtful, artful, and humane. Our proud members:

Danielle Lurie began her real estate career as a financial analyst for the San Francisco based REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) AMB. After next working in the film industry as an acclaimed activist writer/director and producer for fifteen years, Danielle returned again to residential real estate with a honed skill for helping her clients bring their vision of their home purchase or sale to fruition. Very ready to roll up her sleeves and bring creative thinking and integrity to each deal, Danielle pours an extreme level of passion and dedication into her work. Having both worked and lived across almost all neighborhoods in Manhattan and Brooklyn Danielle is a true New York who has an extensive background in co-op, condo, townhouse sales and rentals. A woman’s rights activist, Danielle has founded the all-inclusive Women in Real Estate Collective (WIREC) that fosters a community of support in this business. Danielle lives with her family in the Upper West Side.

Michaela Morton joined The Jane Advisory Team in 2020 as its Head of Operations and Marketing and as a sales agent, after making the move to Compass two years ago from a boutique Harlem agency where she was a successful managing trainer and senior sales agent. Trained as an actor, writer, and translator, Michaela’s heart-led approach pairs with an exacting attention to detail. A Certified Buyer Representative, Certified Negotiation Expert, and specialist in first-time buyers, she's combined extensive market knowledge with the personal insight and intuition to guide her clients home by the most efficient and enjoyable path. Michaela has sold homes across the city, from Greenwich Village to Bed Stuy to Inwood, and especially loves planting her neighbors in Harlem and watching them grow.

Allison Sprouse joined the team in 2019. After a year of running our team as its Head of Operations, Allison is uniquely capable to manage all sides of the real estate business for her real estate clients. Allison comes to real estate after working in the hospitality and event-planning industries, running her own home-furnishings store, studying interior design at Parson's School of Design, and - most importantly and usefully - after a dozen years of being a parent. Equally passionate about both people and process, it's not surprising that Allison was named the youngest Service Excellence Trainer by Marriott. Allison has lived with her husband and two daughters in Park Slope for the past seven years.

Molly Gyllenhaal joined the team at its inception in 2016. Molly’s background in the creative and performing arts enables her to use creative thinking to ensure her clients have efficient, smooth, and very enjoyable real estate processes. Molly’s most recent listing sale was of a co-op apartment in Park Slope which she sold for well over the asking price at $2,576,000 all cash after receiving 7 offers. Molly lives in Carroll Gardens.

Lindsay Proud joined the team in 2018. She comes to real estate after a successful career in hospitality and fashion where she most recently spent five years in the buying department at Hautelook, a Nordstrom Company, running multiple verticals. Lindsay has meticulous attention to detail, negotiation skills, and unwavering dedication to complete customer satisfaction. In her first year in real estate, Lindsay closed over 35 transactions and is a rising star in the industry. Lindsay lives in Williamsburg.

Zsuzsanna Bircsak joined the team in 2018 as its Head of Operations before becoming promoted to agent in 2019. She brings her experience working for ten years working in the financial industry as a client onboarder for major banks like BNP Paribas in London and Morgan Stanley on Wall Street to her real estate acumen. Fluent in English, Hungarian, and Slovak - Zsuzsanna also has a unique ability to communicate with joy and care with all of the clients she represents. Zsuzsanna lives in Long Island City.

A high touch team that prides itself on its strong worth ethic, out-of-the-box thinking, and an ability to listen and empathize to the needs and wants of its clients, The Jane Advisory Team has a track record of achieving what its clients most desire and has an excellent level of client loyalty.

Together, The Jane Advisory Team brings dedication, passion, and integrity to each deal - always putting clients’ needs and wants first.

Jane x Drone

The Jane Advisory Team produces, shoots, and edits our own drone videos in house. Coming to real estate from a previous career as a film writer, director, and producer, Danielle believes the moving picture is one of the best ways to share our team's love for all the magical parts of this city. In collaboration with our intern, Morgan Pius, who shoots and edits - and even does the graphic animation! - we are so proud to share these special odes to New York City with you in hopes that we can help you find your perfect place in the world.
