During the past 15 years in residential real estate, Susan’s experience has encompassed every aspect of the business: co-op and condo sales; the branding and marketing/sales of new development properties; pre-war condo conversions; and a multitude of rental transactions. Working with buyers and sellers, Susan has covered most Manhattan neighborhoods along with parts of Brooklyn. Susan’s expertise in staging, marketing and pricing has led to many happy sellers; while her patience and determination, along with excellent negotiation skills, have also led to delighted buyers — whether purchasing their first home or expanding/downsizing to another.
Susan’s background in luxury brand marketing-publicity, interior design, and art sales/curation brings an added dimension to her real estate business. Maximizing the connection between art and real estate, Susan creates interactive art events for developers and curates art exhibitions. One of her larger sales, two sizable sculptures by Eleanora Kupencow, resulted in a permanent installation at 180 Maiden Lane, in Lower Manhattan.
A longtime resident of the Upper West Side, Susan is an activist in her community. Through a concern about empty storefronts around the City, Susan joined forces with other like-minded residents and formed UWS SOS (Save our Stores). This grass roots initiative quickly gained momentum, garnering media attention and the support of local politicians, resulting in legislative changes. UWS SOS continues in its mission to remedy an important issue.
Susan finds joy in the energy and diversity of New York City. She maintains a fervent belief that no matter what challenges this City faces, it is strong and resilient and will always be a great place to live.
