her background in client services for A-list celebrities and entrepreneurs

effortlessly adapt to new situations that sets Anna’s brand and business
Raised on a farm in Virginia, Anna understood the value of property
ownership from a young age, and became increasingly interested in a real
estate career after moving to New York. Ironically, it was a year
abroad--spent traveling alone through 18 countries--that solidified her
love for this city and convinced her to become an . A resident
Harlem since 2012, she is intimately familiar with the neighborhood and its
recent growth, but feels equally at home downtown or in Brooklyn.
Anna spends her free time going to shows, seeking out the city’s best happy
hours, and experiencing train delays.
"Anna was a fantastic partner in my apartment buying process. I’d done a good amount of homework before we connected, but I was still looking for someone who could help guide me through the process. Anna exceeded all expectations." - Alexander F.
My experience with Anna was great. I felt that she understood what I was looking for so she was able to guide me to looking at the right properties. Most important I really trusted her (which having worked with other people isn't always the case). She always put my needs and concerns ahead hers as a real estate ; and I always felt comfortable to ask her any questions. She works with a highly competent team, and I felt like I always had that full support. As a busy professional person this was key to me. As a first time buyer the process is incredibly daunting (psychologically as well!) so I was grateful that I had chosen to work with Anna (and Compass) who could guide me through the process. I bought a co-op which has it's own challenges (the board package!) and she made sure everything was buttoned up in my application so that I had no problems being accepted. On a personal note, Anna is very warm and friendly but also strategic and professional, giving good honest advise and sharing her expertise." -Barbara S.
Working with Anna definitely took my apartment search from random and flailing to thoughtful and efficient. Your move to New York City should be exciting and not a nightmare!" -Maya H.
