Viviana Montenegro knows a thing or two about settling into new places. Born in Germany, raised in Colombia and, now, a proud New Yorker for over a decade, she can thank an eclectic upbringing and an adventurous spirit for her facility in making the most out of new environments. That’s why helping you find the perfect space is not only a profession and passion for Viviana, it’s a pleasure. With Home New York, Viviana specializes in lofts and large spaces, particularly Residential and Commercial Sales and Leasing in downtown Manhattan, including her own stomping grounds of Tribeca, Soho, Battery Park, the Financial District and the West Village.
In 2009, Viviana graduated with a degree in International Business from Baruch College, and was soon after recruited by the Macy’s INC Executive Training Program – rated one of the top executive training programs in the country. While in school, she completed two internships in the finance sector; one in which she assisted the founder of Davenport Group, a hedge fund marketing firm, and the other at IMAG, a management consulting firm for international banks. Because of these collective experiences, Viviana has developed a sharp business acumen and knows that building trust with her clients – everyone from international investors to new parents – is the key to a successful and fruitful relationship. To her, transparency is of the utmost importance. When you can trust your broker, it makes the move that much smoother and the deal so much sweeter.
Outside of work, Viviana volunteers for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement, as well as the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Though she gets enough exercise meeting with clients all over the city, you can often find Viviana swimming laps or mindfully perfecting her yoga poses.
