About Brenda

Brenda Di Bari has proven over and over in her professional and personal lives that nothing whatsoever will stop her despite the challenge. That drive especially applies to her real estate clients to whom she gives her all.

Always a successful entrepreneur, Brenda ran a wine importing company with her husband while simultaneously managing her own real estate brokerage firms in New York City and Miami. After her husband passed, this then-single mother raised six children in Manhattan, and spent four years in her husband’s native Rome to give them a tangible part of their father and groom them to excel. While there, she traveled extensively and learned about the European real estate market.

After honing a global mindset and willingness to take risks, her path drew her back to New York, and the real estate world she loves. Brenda returned with her a deepened capacity to deliver an even higher standard of service and knowledge to her diverse real estate clientele. She is a veteran of the industry who hit the ground running in 2003, closing 30+ transactions her first year, and moving on as an accomplished sales agent and a seasoned broker. Her track record for exceeding sales goals and implementing results-driven strategies sets her apart.

With hundreds of millions of dollars of real estate sold, Brenda advanced her expertise even further, earning the prestigious Certified Buyer Representative and Certified Negotiation Expert designations. Her business savvy and qualifications are enhanced by her strong talent for listening and discovering people’s actual needs as they relate to their most prized asset, their home.

A Manhattan resident since childhood, Brenda is well versed in the different neighborhoods, many of which she has lived in! She also brings a creative eye and design flair to her buyers and sellers to optimize the potential of any home, having studied Fashion Design at International Fine Arts College in Miami and Brand Management at F.I.T. in NYC before working as a high-profile fashion stylist.


” I will never forget sending my initial text around 11pm content to get a response at some point the next day. I never expected to get a response within 5 minutes!! From that point our experience with Brenda continued to get better! She was instrumental in helping us get the apartment we wanted even though there was already an accepted offer on it. New to coop buying and dealing with application packages to submit to the coop board? No problem. Brenda was with us every step of the way providing expert guidance and encouragement. Brenda even met with us before submitting the application so we could go through every document to make sure everything was in order. We were blessed to have the opportunity to work with Brenda and we were so happy that we were able to refer her a new client - and we did so with great confidence and without hesitation!
- Thank you, Brenda!!!”

”Brenda was an excellent broker. Knowledgeable, managed the process well, kept us on track, and was a genuinely nice and caring person. I would strongly recommend Brenda as a broker for anyone interested in purchasing in NYC.”

”I first encountered Brenda while helping an acquaintance find an apartment and after a short conversation with her I instinctively knew she would be the best choice to see out the process with. A little background research revealed I had indeed made the right choice and I have called on her several more times to assist friends in their search for the right home. She is currently working with myself and a close friend to find the perfect apartment and due to her exceptional negotiation skills has secured an amazing deal which will shortly be entering contract. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Brenda to anyone in search of a new home. Her wealth of experience in real estate is hard to beat and her business acumen second to none. Her response to texts and e mails is immediate regardless of the time of day and her honesty when helping clients get the best price is refreshing. In closing I would like to add that I have come across MANY real estate agents in my time and have even spent a little time in the field myself - so I like to think I know what I am talking about when I highly advise you to seek her out for your next purchase or rental. You will not be disappointed!”

”Brenda did an outstanding job for us. We only had one day in NYC to find an apt to purchase. We live in Florida so we needed to get this done quickly. She set up a record breaking 11 appointments in one day for me. We got through them all. I found my dream apt in my dream neighborhood in Manhattan. Brenda was instrumental in making this deal happen for a highly sought after address. She helped me thought the extremely complicated coop process. She was patient, diligent, and acted more like a friend. She was accessible and responsive during a nerve wracking time. Ultimately, she made the deal happen and we couldn’t be any happier. We just moved into our apt this week! I would highly recommend Brenda Di Bari. She’s a consummate professional and super knowledgeable about the NYC real estate market!”
