A native New Yorker, Margherita was born in Brooklyn and raised in Westchester County. In 2006, she purchased her first of many properties, a teeny studio on Barrow Street in the West Village. From there, she moved to Brooklyn and has since called Fort Greene, Brooklyn Heights, Williamsburg, Carroll Gardens and now Lefferts Manor home. Passionate about home design and buying and selling real estate, Margherita has been investing in renovating her own homes for more than a decade and selling them for profit. She is always on the hunt for a new property, whether for herself or her clients. Margherita's keen design eye and expertise at identifying a "good buy" are invaluable when helping her clients make a house a home.
Prior to working in real estate, Margherita studied Art History at Hobart and William Smith College. She spent years at top Madison Avenue advertising agencies, where she ran administrative and office service teams, orchestrated elaborate events and redesigned office spaces. Margherita also co-ran her own floral business, Frankie Elizabeth, and her creations were featured in major media outlets including Pure Wow and the Today Show. This extensive experience in advertising, management, design and home renovations is an essential part of how she successfully guides her buyers and sellers, whether it's searching for the perfect fixer-upper or staging a home to maximize profits upon sale.
Fluent in Italian and English, Margherita enjoys spending free time with her husband (who she met in middle school!), running after her young son, cuddling with her beloved Chihuahua and hosting boisterous dinner parties with friends. She also loves spending time outdoors on the North Fork of Long Island at her retreat, traveling, cooking and reading.
”Margherita listens and talks to her clients, she thinks about their lives and how she can help them on their full journey, not just a single sale. That’s really important. And not common. Margherita cares. Her patience and approachability helped us feel at ease during the sale of our Brooklyn coop. We were in contract within 30 days and set a record for a coop sale in our neighborhood. She has a personal and in-depth knowledge of Brooklyn neighborhoods and the current market."
