About Ilana
Ilana’s style of working with clients is approachable, honest and data-driven. She goes above and beyond to provide value and insight, no matter how large or small the deal, or the request. She genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her clients as well as the results she helps them achieve, and advises them as if they were friends or family. She aims to make the process of buying, selling and renting a New York City residence transparent, efficient and enjoyable.

Ilana was born in New York City and raised in London, England. She has been surrounded by real estate her whole life. Her grandfather, Arnold Lee, was a pioneering developer who helped rebuild London after the destruction of WW2 bombing, and her family has been a global presence in the real estate industry since. This has given her a lifelong appreciation for architecture and design, and an innate understanding of the forces that influence real estate markets, both residential and commercial.

In the 15+ years she has been a NYC resident, she has lived in almost every corner of the city, and has become an expert in the characteristics and nuances that make each area, and its real estate, unique, from the Upper East Side, to the West Village, to Park Slope. Previously owning in a Manhattan co-op, she currently sits on the board for her Williamsburg condo building, giving her broad personal experience with both forms of home ownership.

Ilana holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Leeds University (UK) and a Master’s Degree from New York University. Before formally beginning a career in real estate, Ilana spent over a decade working at the crossroads of entertainment, marketing and technology, for companies such as Universal Music and Vevo. This experience gives her a natural talent for digital marketing and strategy, fluency with the technological tools and data that help inform real estate discovery and decisions, and a passion for the arts which only solidifies her love for New York City - in her opinion, the greatest city in the world.
