There are many real estate agents, but people generally choose to work with the one they feel is most knowledgeable, attentive and personable. Ivy Lee is a winner among her clients because she not only provides thorough guidance and top-notch service; she also delivers highly effective results with radiant enthusiasm! 

Though Ivy has held various positions, she has always been intrigued with real estate. She previously worked in the film industry as a scriptwriter in Asia, and held several sales, marketing and customer service positions in Los Angeles. Ivy holds a BA degree in Film & Photography from Columbia College Chicago and an MBA in Marketing & E-Commerce from Golden Gate University, San Francisco. Since coming to New York, she is fascinated by the architecture and buildings, she especially loves to be out and about, and looking at homes – so much so she made it her full-time career. 

Ivy’s goal from the first meeting with her clients is to become their broker for life. Relationships she feels are of utmost importance in this business, as is being thorough and transparent in the information you provide. She builds relationships based on honesty, integrity, and respect.

Highly intuitive when it comes to matching people with spaces, Ivy believes in the Eastern Feng Shui philosophy that our environment affects our lives. “A perfectly balanced home will bring you joy and prosperity.” Ivy is also interested in higher learning, health and fitness, people and psychology, and facilitating a meeting of the minds in both personal and professional interactions.

Ivy is absolutely the nicest person I've ever met through real estate concern. Terrific!

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

Ivy is an extremely HONEST, PROMPT, PROFESSIONAL, KNOWLEDGEABLE and DILIGENT broker. She was very attentive to our needs and wants for a new apartment. She didn't waste our time with properties that were a misfit. During the search for a new place, our criteria changed and forced us to look outside of Ivy's focus neighborhoods. We would, however, recommend her wholeheartedly to any prospective renter.
