About Us

I was an independent broker for 18 years before Joining Howard Hanna Rand Realty. My team services a large footprint of Metropolitan New York, from Westchester and Fairfield CT, to Long Island, to the Hudson Valley. We have brokered hundreds of matrimonial home sales, and a number of our team have been through divorces themselves. We are committed to the best possible outcome for our clients, to fairness and neutrality, to confidentiality, and to ensuring that all of our clients have the best experience possible in what is one of life’s most difficult and often heartbreaking transitions.

There is no “easy divorce.” Whether you are in a difficult litigation, mediation, collaborative divorce or something in between, the sale of the matrimonial home requires more than the typical real estate agent. You might be facing a short sale or some other roadblock. Regardless, the brokering of the typically largest asset is crucial, the stakes are high as is the stress level, and our team is committed to the best possible outcome for our clients.
