Featured in The New York Times "Down to One Resident in 15,600 Square Feet, a Missionary Sisterhood’s Home Is for Sale"
Lisa Kobiolke initially got her real estate license in 2005, but decided to pursue a career as an appraiser, which gave her a more logical understanding of property. Because sales and customer service have always been what she loves most, Lisa joined Compass as an agent once again to help ease clients through one of the most important steps in their life - buying, selling or renting a home.
Lisa is truly at her best when she is helping other people. That has been the consistent theme throughout her professional career, even while working in the beauty, health and fitness industries. Lisa previously enjoyed prominent roles as a beauty professional (as a national makeup artist and trainer for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics), as a certified yoga instructor (and proprietor of her own company, NYC Yoga Party), and as a certified health coach who helped people make healthier choices to look and feel better. Her passion for real estate always drew her in, however.
Right before joining Compass, Lisa was a leasing agent at the largest property west of Mississippi, leasing over 200 apartments during her one year stint in San Francisco.
A Manhattan resident since 1999, Lisa has resided in the East Village, in Brooklyn, and in Gramercy. Currently on the Upper West Side, she loves living right next to Central Park. "There is simply nothing like it," she says. Lisa adores the laid back yet sophisticated feel of her neighborhood, which makes it feel like home; plus she appreciates the many other areas of the city that each has something unique and amazing to offer. Lisa's real estate and business experience have shaped her into a fierce negotiator and staunch advocate for her clients. Within minutes of meeting her, you'll feel confident knowing she'll do whatever it takes to get the job done well for you, in the least amount of time. When not busy helping clients and discovering new fun things to do in NYC, Lisa's favorite pastimes include yoga, cooking and being social.
