Managing Director of Sales
Kristi Ambrosetti joined Compass in March of 2017 as Managing Director of Sales at 90 Fifth Avenue, the company's headquarters. Previously a top producing broker at Sotheby’s International Realty, Kristi’s success in the field can be attributed to her market knowledge, client servicing and spot-on pricing. She was named a “Pioneering Woman of Real Estate” and was consistently ranked in NRT’s top 2% of brokers nationally.
Kristi brings a wealth of expertise in sales, brand and technology with a focus on positioning the agent as a trusted advisor. She is a skilled negotiator and fierce advocate for her agents. Kristi strives to provide the ultimate support for their business growth with transactional guidance and pitch support. She serves as a liaison between the executive leadership team and agents, focusing her efforts on various sales-related initiatives and policies that align with the company’s values.
Prior to real estate, Kristi traveled the world as a Broadway performer - from the U.S. and Canada to Russia, Japan and China. This extraordinary experience supplied the foundation for her creative marketing of properties, instinctive people skills and tenacity in a comparably competitive industry. It instilled in her a distinct appreciation for the notion of home, a compelling concept she always returns to when conferring with clients and agents.
Kristi currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation and is Chair of the Advisory Board of The BETTY Effect. She also volunteers as a head basketball coach for the Greenwich House Girls’ Basketball league; all of which have a mission of supporting the development and equity of women and girls. Kristi previously served on the Board of Directors of her Prospect Heights’ cooperative, and currently resides in Chelsea – Kristi’s expertise and passion for New York are instantly apparent.
