University of Chicago
Since graduating from the University of Chicago in 1980, I have alternated living in New York and Europe. I purchased my first co-op apartment in 1987, where for three years I was president of the Board of Directors. Work then took me to Paris, France, where I was a Principal Administrator for the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development for ten years. Upon returning to New York in 2000, I began to invest in real estate. This avocation quickly became my chosen profession and I began working for the Corcoran Group in 2002.
I take great pride and pleasure in representing owners in the sale of their homes or investment properties. I believe that the highest possible price is achieved through a complete understanding of the property, a marketing plan that brings these strengths to the forefront and an approach to negotiating that is flexible and corresponds to the specific situation at hand. When it comes to negotiating a sale, one size does not fit all, and every situation must be considered individually.
When working with buyers, I strive to take the burden off their shoulders. I find only suitable properties, schedule the showings, ensure that buyers have all the market data they need to make an informed decision. Once the contract is signed, I help them navigate all the steps to closing – from obtaining a mortgage to passing the board interview.
I thoroughly believe that the deepest knowledge comes through hands-on experience. Consequently, in my real estate career I have: -- owned, renovated and sold, brownstones and townhouses; -- owned condos as a personal residence and investment property; -- owned co-ops as both a personal residence and sponsor units; -- done ground up construction for mixed use commercial buildings; -- owned rent stabilized apartment buildings and converted rental buildings to condominiums; -- brought to market six new condominium projects with more than 300 units.
Whatever your particular real estate needs, you can count on me to help you achieve the best possible result.
