About Kathleen

Every home has a unique story to tell, and yours is no exception. Beyond the requisite deep rolodex and market knowledge, your next listing agent should know how to weave and tell a great story.

I came to Real Estate after three decades in publishing, during which I was recruited by Sir Harold Evans to launch Conde Nast Traveler magazine and establish a new kind of travel journalism. As the Photography Director of Traveler, I had the opportunity to create stories with world leaders and adventurous minds, including covers with the then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in India, with one of the most globally recognized actresses, Drew Barrymore, in Kenya, and with Michelle Obama for her portrait in The White House. I shepherded Conde Nast Traveler through the industry's transition from print-only to multiple publishing and media platforms, and developed, launched, and produced the digital edition, website, special interest publications, books, calendars, and photography exhibits alike.

With a keen eye for architecture and a passion for detail forged over decades at Conde Nast, I know precisely how to fashion and market a compelling narrative. And having raised a family (a husband, three daughters and a fierce golden doodle) on West End Avenue, I know what makes an apartment a home. Whether you are looking to sell, buy or lease, entrust the next chapter of your story to a listing agent with a deep knowledge of the NYC real estate market, and a commitment to exceptional results. I will stick by you until you find exactly what you are looking for.


"Thank you, Kathleen, you are very kind and thoughtful. We have enjoyed our experience looking at homes with you and feel very lucky. We look forward to seeing you at the walk thru." KR

"Kathleen is absolutely AWESOME! I have been working with her for the last 2 months and found her to be professional, knowledgeable, detail oriented, dedicated and caring. I have worked with many real estate professionals over the years and there really is no one like her." ID

"Buying and/or selling a home is daunting! No amount of research can prepare you for the unquantifiable emotional factor that influences your decision-making. This is when it becomes necessary to have an ally with whom you are comfortable and in whom you can trust. That's Kathleen! She will be your advisor, your professional housing coach, your counsel and your business partner." AMD

"Kathleen is a very responsive and patient agent. She works with you and makes you feel like you are taken care of. She also has the personal connection that is important for buyers when they're considering some of their own concerns. She's willing to work with you on your needs and concerns." SG

"She made us feel great and we wanted to make her our agent whenever we need a home." BG

"Beginning with our first introduction, she understood exactly what I was looking for and was able to curate my apartment search to meet my exact needs. She had a tireless work-rate and her attention to detail was highly impressive. I never felt pressured or forced to make decisions, and I respected her professionalism and vast knowledge of the industry. Needless to say, I'd highly recommend Kathleen as a real-estate broker."
