About Ilana

Ilana is a NYC-based real estate agent with a fresh perspective. With over 15 years living across Manhattan and Brooklyn, she's an expert in the unique characteristics that make each neighborhood and its real estate special.

Born in NYC and raised in London, Ilana has been surrounded by real estate her entire life. Her grandfather was a pioneering developer, and she is the third generation in her family to work in the field. This gave her a lifelong appreciation for architecture and design, and an innate understanding of the forces that influence real estate markets and investors.

Prior to real estate, Ilana spent a decade working at the crossroads of entertainment, marketing, and technology for companies such as Universal Music and Vevo. Her experience in digital marketing and strategy, fluency with technology and data, and passion for the arts make her a unique force in the real estate industry.

Ilana goes above and beyond to provide value and insight, no matter how large or small the deal or request. Ilana aims to make the process of buying, selling, and renting a NYC residence transparent, enjoyable, and rewarding. With a genuine care for her clients' well-being and results, she advises them as if they were friends or family.

Ilana lives on the Upper East Side with her wife, Madeleine, son, and their son, Rocco.

Words from Ilana's Clients:

"Ilana was an amazing agent to work with. She was always available by text or phone call to answer our many questions and concerns throughout the process. She is a great listener, understood what we wanted, and never pushed us to go for an apartment that didn't fit what we were looking for, or was more than we wanted to spend. We would work with her again, and definitely recommend others work with her as well." Buyer, Gramercy Park

"Ilana has served as our real estate agent when we need to list our properties and find qualified and suitable tenants. This is no small task as it involves a combination of analysis, vision, marketing and people skills, all of which Ilana possesses. We entrust key decisions relating to our portfolio to Ilana because we know her to be reliable, smart, efficient, trustworthy, discrete and professional. In addition, Ilana is an absolute pleasure to work with as she is responsive, relationship minded, and has a disciplined and clear-headed work ethic. With Ilana as our fiduciary, we have the utmost confidence that we are receiving sound analysis, recommendations and that our interests are protected." Landlord, Manhattan and Brooklyn

"Ilana was the selling agent for my Upper East Side apartment. She made herself readily available and was extremely knowledgeable about the NYC market, the location and the building itself. She handled everything, including dealing with the co-op board, and made the whole process stress free." Seller, Upper East Side

"THANK YOU so much for helping us make this happen. It really was an enjoyable experience working together. Much appreciated. I can't help but be so thankful for your nudging us to appreciate how good of a deal we were getting!" Buyer, Upper West Side

"Ilana is a highly recommended real estate broker who recently sold our apartment. Her dedication, creativity, and positive attitude were remarkable and she remained calm and professional throughout the process. She was able to think outside the box and come up with unique strategies to market the property, resulting in a sale that exceeded expectations. Ilana demonstrated a deep understanding of the real estate market and was committed to delivering exceptional service. She is an ideal choice for anyone looking for a knowledgeable, experienced, and positive real estate broker." Seller, Financial District
