Lawrence’s unique background and experiences in the worlds of music, creative direction and real estate give him an invaluable set of multidisciplinary skills and keen cultural sensibilities to help him serve his clients. He knows that the purchase or sale of a home is much more than a financial transaction, but a deep emotional decision which requires asking the right questions to truly understand a clients needs, wants and interests.
A Native New Yorker, Lawrence has a unique perspective of the city. Born and raised in Coney Island and Tribeca before moving an hour away to Princeton, NJ for high school, he has had the rare opportunity to see the city landscape change over the last 30 years. From the rise of affluent neighborhoods like Tribeca to burgeoning areas in the outer boroughs like Harlem and Bushwick, Lawrence has seen a new generation take over New York. Though he agrees the city has changed in many ways, the buoyant spirit and tireless energy of the young professionals and creatives who have come to inhabit NYC is what makes it the greatest city in the world.
Beyond NY Real Estate, Lawrence is also the creative director of a luxury co-working space + boutique hotel in Shanghai, China. His background in real estate development and his love for architecture and design have sharpened his eye to help his clients find the homes of their dreams and to ascertain true value in the market place, often hidden in inflated asking prices and cheap construction. His skills as a copywriter and graphic designer also ensure that his clients properties are marketed to the highest standards both visually and verbally.
In his free time, Lawrence enjoys music, sports, film, cooking, photography, art and design. You will most likely find him walking through the back streets of Tribeca with a coffee in hand, shooting hoops outdoors somewhere in the city or out performing with his band.
