In 2012, I decided to attend NYU Stern’s evening MBA program despite the challenges of running my own real estate brokerage at the time and having a 2-year old at home. The reasons were threefold—I wanted to learn more about the overall business world to feel more aligned with many of my clients; I wanted exposure to a terrific network that would be mutually beneficial for life; and I wanted a deeper understanding of how to be a manager and run my own business.

Well, it was one of the best experiences and decisions of my life. Due in large part to my time there, I was able to take Skygroup Realty to the next level, which led to my merger with Warburg in June 2015 and subsequent move to Elliman in March 2018 as an established top producer. Since obtaining my MBA, I’ve been honored to stay deeply involved in the school’s culture and give back to the wonderful community that I’ll always be part of and learned so much from. Choosing to attend Stern while simultaneously growing my career as a broker may have been challenging, but it was deeply rewarding, and worth it on every conceivable level. Some of the benefits—I’m a proud Executive Board Member of the NYU Center for Real Estate Finance; I host quarterly alumni/student mixers and parties to discuss real estate trends and conditions; and I’ve closed double-digit (and counting!) transactions with Stern alums, students, and referrals (one of my favorite sights is seeing a “stern.edu” email address pop up in my inbox, or receiving a Facebook message from a Sternie eager to work together). 

As a proud alumni, I plan to give back to Stern as much as possible going forward. Already in the pipeline are: 

  • Potential Sponsorships of the CFREF biannual Real Estate Symposiums

  • Guest lectures on residential real estate in Stern courses  

  • Involvement in multiple panel discussions via Stern’s real estate club 

I count myself as indescribably fortunate to have been a member of NYU’s business school community, and in addition to the aforementioned upcoming events, I’m extremely eager to continue representing fellow alumnae, students, and their friends and families. You won’t find a better and more dedicated ally than a fellow member of the NYU Stern family.
