A native New Yorker who grew up in a real estate family, Kathy got a taste for deal making at a young age, when she began buying, renovating and flipping apartments while still in her twenties. Moving into brokerage eleven years ago, she was one of the first agents to start using video for her property profiles, a cutting edge marketing innovation that allowed her to thrive in the otherwise challenging market of 2007. She has refined the art of marketing properties, using a highly specialized team of contractors, stagers, decorators, and professional photographers. With an unparalleled knowledge of the industry, Kathy prepares a customized, multi-channel creative marketing plan for each new property.
After more than a decade as a broker, Kathy’s greatest pride – beyond her numerous awards – is the fact that many of her original clients continue to buy and resell with her. They accept nothing short of her personal touch and excellent attention to detail. Kathy resides on the Upper West Side with her son and daughter. In her spare time she enjoys exploring the magic of New York City with her family, and always keeping an eye on investment opportunities for her clients in the ever-changing NYC landscape.
