“Annie Gets It Done!”

My nickname, not only in my professional life as one of the top real estate brokers in Manhattan, but in my personal life as well. How lucky am I to live in the most exciting city in the world, make a living doing what I love and I have been blessed with two amazing daughters.

By definition, a “broker” facilitates bringing parties together to sell a piece of real estate, but I see my job as so much more. There are no words to express how honored I feel to have helped thousands of people start new chapters in their lives. The relationships I have nurtured during my 39-year career have enabled me to help long after the deal is done.


For nearly 40 years, I have been selling apartments here in New York City and honestly loving every minute of it. I have consistently been ranked as one of the top agents in the city, been voted Broker of the Year by my peers and The Real Estate Board of New York, and have transacted Billions of dollars in sales over my extraordinary career.

I start every day with gratitude knowing that I have the very best job in the world. My clients often come to me at the best and worst times in their lives and I help them transition to the next chapter in their lives. I take that responsibility very seriously.


In response to the drastic sanitation department budget cuts, I co-founded ONE BLOCK in the summer of 2020. Hundreds of volunteers signed up to clean not only their block but other areas of our neighborhood. We hired two workers through ACE (Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless) to supply additional paid manpower to help us keep our community even cleaner. In just a short time, we are an official 501 c3 non-profit and fill 1000 green bags of trash on the Upper West Side each week!
Bringing people together feeds my soul. I founded WWW to educate and empower women of all ages but with a focus on those of us 45 and over. We have an active Facebook page and post-Covid, I resumed the free, monthly dinner series with room for 60 women. At each event, we welcome speakers on a variety of different and important topics.
This fabulous charity home delivers, medically tailored, healthy meals, to New Yorkers too sick to cook and or shop for themselves. I have been on the host committee for their annual benefit concert “LOVE ROCKS NYC” since it started six years ago. Additionally, I help coordinate the “RIDE FOR LOVE”, the annual Douglas Elliman sponsored bike-a-thon, and the 20th anniversary of the “COW PARADE” that arrived in NYC last summer.
After my daughter, Riley was diagnosed with dyslexia in the first grade, her life was changed by getting the specialized help she needed to get her confidence back and thrive. EEO is a grassroots organization focused on helping children on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera get the help they desperately need. Twelve years ago, my daughters and I started a summer literacy camp in partnership with them. We now serve over 70 special elementary school children each year.
I am a proud member of the New York City chapter of Impact 100. This national organization unites women across the country to fund transformative grants to small and mid-sized nonprofits. Harnessing the power of collective giving and collaborative action, Impact 100 NYC unites women to gift donations to NYC-based nonprofits.
