What do you do best?

I’m a matchmaker. Most people are not ambivalent about Manhattan; their life in this city is a love story (yes, love/hate at times), and this city is not one place--it is myriad, distinctly flavored microcosms. I work with buyer clients to uncover precisely which neighborhood—down to the block—suits them the best. I help them find themselves in the city, and match them with the property that most strongly supports their lifestyle. A West Village brownstone, a Tribeca loft, a Chelsea co-op each provide a remarkably different experience of life in Manhattan. Finding the one that’s the best reflection of my client is an exciting and fulfilling adventure.

What makes you the best?

Of course I’m familiar with the market—available properties, trends and values, but I’m also keenly aware of the personality, culture and character of Manhattan neighborhoods, the local businesses, services and community groups that give them their unique identities.

Biggest success?

I’ve found that the most recent success often feels like the biggest success. One of my favorite recent successes: I had a buyer client who wanted a townhouse in a very specific area of Greenwich Village. Quiet and privacy were at the top of his (rather long) list of requirements. When a hidden townhouse hit the market, I made sure we were the first through the door. He was closed and in residence just over 2 months later, and this house is so private that no one walking by would have any idea that it exists.

What are your aspirations?

Personal: To always remain worthy of my daughter’s respect.

Business: To continue to build my business in a way that is fully integrated with my life in Manhattan: spreading the love, knowledge and involvement in downtown Manhattan neighborhoods, doing my part to preserve the history and enrich the culture which makes those neighborhoods unique, and turning clients into lifelong friends.

Most challenging moment?

That moment when you’re just about to accept ‘no’ as an answer…but you keep moving forward with a new tactic until it’s a ‘yes’.

Favorite Motto:

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Eliot

Favorite People:

All the people currently doing what they love.

Favorite Places:

Manhattan’s West Village—ideally Commerce Street between Bedford and Barrow; Ditch Plains in Montauk—ideally a patch of sand right near the Ditch Witch; Le Marais in Paris—ideally Place des Vosges.

Favorite Products:

For the home: All products from “The Good Home Co.”—all natural, locally sourced and manufactured. Socks from these 2 companies: Bombas and Mitscoots both of which employ a program of 1 pair purchased = 1 pair donated to homeless shelters and others in need. The inspirational jewelry and products from The Giving Keys a great company creating jobs for the homeless.

Current Passions:

Manhattan historic preservation and small business support. I’m a big fan of The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation.
