The Young Team Advisory, comprised of Anne Young, her two oldest daughters – Amanda and Christina Young -- Adam Fischel and Laura Kawwa., has had a longstanding and successful real estate practice in New York City, with over 60 years of combined industry experience. The success of the Young Team Advisory is in large part due to our loyal referral network of clients, family, friends, and colleagues; often with first-hand knowledge of our thoughtful approach, diligence and steadfast commitment to our clients.
In September 2018, the Young Team Advisory joined Compass -- a decision informed by our belief that Compass is the industry leader and disrupter of our time, a truly technology-forward real estate brokerage firm, uniquely capable of supporting our mission to provide the best possible service for our clients. We have deep roots in New York City: we understand that the city's micro-environments are in a constant state of flux, and we work diligently to understand and respond to these changes.
A uniquely accomplished 30-year industry veteran, Anne is widely recognized for the breadth of her influence as an agent, manager, and leader. Anne moved to New York City in 1970 and has lived here ever since, raising her four children amidst the dynamic and turbulent cityscape of the 1970s and '80s. Now a grandmother of eight, Anne has always been a lover of kids and prizes time with her grandchildren.
