    About Penny

    Penny has been recognized by The Wall Street Journal & REAL Trends as the top 159th agent for individual highest average sales price in the country. Having placed for many years as one of the top brokers in Manhattan, this recognition is a natural progression of her career. Penny’s tried and true success follows her all over Manhattan. Consummating sales in prestigious cooperatives, well-respected condominiums and townhouses makes her well versed in all areas of the market.

    Prior to joining Compass, Penny was ranked 8th in sales production at the flagship 445 Park Avenue Brown Harris Stevens New York City office and 21st in the entire company. She has continued to remain one of the top brokers.

    Penny has closed over three quarter of a billion dollars of inventory throughout Manhattan.

    Dedicated to assisting her clients in the appreciation of their homes, Penny sold the same apartment at 838 Fifth Avenue THREE times within a FOUR-year period; the first sale was in 2005 for $13,600,000; then in 2007 for $16,500,000; and then again in 2009 for $22,500,000, amidst a tumultuous financial time.

    An expert in all things real estate, Penny’s clients have requested and flown her to review properties being considered for purchase in London, Seattle, Miami, California and several other metropolitan cities around the world.

    Penny is incredibly grateful to work in this industry: “I believe in the invincibility and wonder of this city, and it is an absolute privilege to work with my clients on what may be one of the largest investments of their lives.” A graduate of New York University, Penny learned the art of competition and the success that lies in determination while competing as a nationally ranked varsity tennis player and expert skier. Her focus is unequaled. As passionate in her personal life as she is in her profession, Penny works with several charity organizations that support young women rising above adversity.
