Anne has over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette and Credit Suisse, and retail experience as the owner of a woman's clothing boutique in Westchester. The jump from retail to real estate was not difficult. "There are a lot of similarities between the two. Both are about developing relationships with customers and providing great customer service, and require a desire to go above and beyond to find that perfect item or apartment for your client," she says. Her background in business, her ability to listen to customers and ascertain what they need, combined with a good sense of humor are invaluable tools in the Manhattan real estate market. A Manhattan resident for over 30 years, Anne knows the city very well. Anne has lived with her family on the Upper West Side since 1992. She is very knowledgeable about her neighborhood and familiar with schools - both public and private, K-12 - children's after-school classes and sports leagues, all are which important to buyers and sellers that have families. Anne has a wide range of interests, including travel, reading and sports, both professional and collegiate. She loves discovering new restaurants, shops and other hidden gems. She can also frequently be found in Riverside Park with her two rambunctious rescue dogs. She graduated from Boston College with a degree in Accounting and has an MBA from Pace University.
