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 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 Group 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.
