What is your favorite part of your job?

My favorite part of my job is having the opportunity to lead and inspire such a dynamic team of professionals. I thrive on developing strategies that not only enhance our market presence but foster the growth and success of each agent and staff member. Each day presents a new challenge and a chance to innovate, which keeps me motivated and passionate about my job.

Are there any on-the-market properties that you are excited about right now?

279 Central Park West, apartment 3/4B, listed by broker Harriet Kaufman, is a beautiful duplex, offering stunning views of the park. One of the features I particularly appreciate is the layout, where the bedrooms are thoughtfully separated from entertaining spaces, providing a perfect balance of privacy and social areas.

What neighborhoods are luxury buyers most interested in at the moment?

There are so many neighborhoods of interest that offer a distinct lifestyle and type of luxury. Here are a few among many enjoying keen interest: The Upper East Side for its classic luxury. It continues to attract buyers with its elegant townhouses, prestigious co-ops, and proximity to Central Park. Tribeca for its spacious lofts and exclusive boutiques. It remains a hotspot for those seeking a blend of luxury, vibrance and artsy atmosphere. Hudson Yards as a newer development is drawing attention with its cutting-edge architecture and high-end amenities Finally, Brooklyn has seen a surge in luxury developments, attracting buyers with its skyline views.

What market trends can we expect to see this year?

In 2024, mortgage costs are likely to become more manageable. We expect to see an increase in homes priced realistically, as sellers adjust to market realities. With the presidential election on the horizon, significant price increases seem unlikely for the year. Nonetheless, opportunities are ripe, particularly in co-ops and more outlying neighborhoods. Another trend we’re noticing is a growing preference for turnkey homes among buyers. While there will be opportunities in co-ops, these will appeal to a specific type of buyer.

What’s next for you?

My focus right now is on growth, forging new pathways, building networks and establishing meaningful connections that will drive our collective success. You will start to see this growth over the next couple of months. A highlight this month is my participation in an Inman Connect New York Panel, where I’ll be sharing the stage with some incredible emerging women leaders. It’s more than just a panel for me—it’s an opportunity to echo the values of our firm, which is dedicated to empowering women. Being part of this movement is both exhilarating and fulfilling.
