Joan consistently places in the top 1% of Douglas Elliman agents. Numerous feature articles in the New York Times and the Real Deal attest to her success.

Joan specializes in high-end luxury properties including townhouses, lofts, co-ops, condos and new developments, both uptown and downtown. Most recently Joan received the Platinum Club Award from Douglas Elliman in 2023, 2022, & 2020. She is also a Pinnacle Club Award Winner, awarded to those individual agents with $1,000,000+ in gross annual commissions in 2016, 2014, 2013, 2012, & 2011, demonstrating Joan's ability to consistently deliver results for her clients year after year. Joan was individually profiled by the Real Deal and numerous times has been named Top Residential Agent of the Week and Deal of the Month. The New York Times "Big Ticket" covered her in 2013 for her luxury condo sale and 2011 and 2012 for luxury co-op sales.

Joan has grown her business primarily through repeat referrals and has a loyal following of discerning and high profile clientele who appreciate her honesty, accessibility, and tenacity in helping a seller to get the most exposure and highest price. She maintains a wide network of buyers and sellers locally and internationally, and her knowledge and experience is frequently drawn on by both developers and other top agents to deliver opinions on pricing and marketing strategies. Joan takes an attentive, hands-on approach, and her success in real estate stems from providing her clientele with guidance, resources and the support they need to find the perfect property.
Her background as a therapist allows her to offer her clients her undivided attention and it is second nature for her to be attentive and discrete when dealing with clients that expect and rely on superior service. Joan can quickly identify a customer's needs and provide a course of action that greatly benefits and protects both her buyers and sellers. As a proud native New Yorker, she is knowledgeable not only about what the city has to offer, but also about how to educate buyers on the diverse neighborhoods and complex world of Manhattan real estate. Purchasing or selling real estate in Manhattan is a huge investment and commitment and she works relentlessly on her client's behalf and guides them to make sound, informed decisions.

Joan, as Co- Director of Sales at 301 East 50th Street, completed the successful sell-out of all 57 units in a new development condominium designed by Cook Fox and located in Midtown East. She is also the resident broker specialist at her Park Avenue co-op in Carnegie Hill. Joan is a longtime supporter of many philanthropic organizations including the Alzheimer's Association, Make-a-Wish foundation, Doctors Without Borders, Smile Train, Memorial Sloane-Kettering Cancer Center and Global Colors.
