About Jodie
Whether bringing a buyer to a luxury penthouse in Manhattan or working with a seller to prepare a one-bed cooperative apartment for sale in Brooklyn, Jodie offers each and every client the same level of exceptional service and consistent, transparent communication. It’s what has helped her build strong and lasting relationships with so many buyers and sellers in the New York City residential market.

A skilled professional with deep knowledge of the local marketplace, Jodie focuses on understanding each individual client’s needs and goals, and crafts the most effective strategy to achieve them. The buyers and sellers she represents appreciate her integrity and attention to detail as well as the warmth, enthusiasm, and care she brings to each relationship.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, Jodie has called New York City home since 1983 and has bought, renovated, and profitably resold multiple properties in the various Manhattan and Brooklyn neighborhoods where she’s lived. She uses her real estate investment experience, and her passion for architecture and design, to help clients find a property and plan improvements that maximize resale value. In addition to offering the benefit of this hands-on experience, serving on cooperative and condominium boards has sharpened her sense of what makes a place a wonderful home, and a great investment, too. Jodie is also a Certified Negotiation Expert.

Before joining Compass, Jodie was a top broker at Corcoran where she won many of the firm’s most prestigious awards. She was more recently affiliated with Brown Harris Stevens. Prior to real estate, Jodie was a marketing writer and strategic communications consultant to educational, cultural, and government organizations and corporations in almost every sector. Jodie holds several degrees in literature and creative writing has lived abroad, traveled extensively, and is conversational in French. She and her partner have homes in Brooklyn and the Catskills.

62 Montague St, Unit 5A

Elegance, space, and original detail all come together in this beautiful two-bedroom home in The Arlington, one of Brooklyn Heights’ most coveted addresses. Designed in 1887 by renowned Brooklyn architect Montrose Morris, and both an NYC Landmark and in the National Register of Historic Places, this 10-story elevator building is full of old-world charm and perfectly situated by the Promenade on the quiet residential end of Montague Street.

This classic gem offers light and views, with the dramatic bay windows in the rounded living room looking out onto Lower Manhattan’s skyline and the nearby Promenade gardens. In addition to hardwood floors, detailed woodwork, tin ceilings and crown molding throughout the apartment, the living room has a lovely, tiled wood-burning fireplace. The second bedroom/flexible space is just adjacent and accessible both through original pocket doors and from the distinctive hallway, which runs almost the full length of the apartment. Both the second bedroom and master bedroom are serene and welcoming. The large windowed kitchen has been modernized with tasteful glass-faced cabinets offering lots of storage, stainless steel appliances, and stacked washer/dryer. The windowed bathroom is a study in white, with wainscoting and period tiles and fixtures. The cooperative has a common roof deck with stunning harbor views.

Iconic 62 Montague Street is pet-friendly, has a live-in super, private storage, bike room and is in easy reach of multiple subway lines (2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, F, R), and the neighborhood’s green spaces and tony shops and eateries.
