Cara came to real estate through her first love: storytelling. Through her work in media, she interviewed some of New York City's top real estate brokers about their careers. In connecting to their entrepreneurial drive, service, and meaningful relationships with longtime clients, she was hooked.
On the AK in the BK Team at Compass, Cara builds on her colleagues’ decades of real estate experience and expertise across wide-ranging market conditions. The team’s client-centered approach has led to more than $1 billion in sales. With deep ties to Brooklyn’s culturally diverse community, the team also develops modern, green Milan Case Study homes in the Hudson Valley and the Hamptons.
A Brooklyn resident since 2003, Cara knows the borough's brownstone neighborhoods block by block. In producing and moderating cultural events, she has explored Literary Brooklyn: The Writers of Brooklyn and the Story of American City Life. A supporter of Brooklyn Public Library, BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music), and Brooklyn Boatworks, Cara loves to sail on historic wooden schooners.
