Meet the Broker: Lisa K. Lippman Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker at Brown Harris Stevens



Lisa Lippman Interview

How did you get into real estate?

I was a practicing litigator at a midsize Manhattan firm and chose to leave law a few years after the birth of my first son. My husband and I had just purchased a new apartment and while I enjoyed my time at home, I thought real estate would be a perfect part time job. After just a few weeks, my passion was ignited and my mindset shifted from “part time job” to “full-time career.” 22 years later, I still feel the same sense of pride and accomplishment helping buyers and sellers achieve their goals.

What are some of your favorite properties that are currently on the market?

This spring, I am going to be listing a nine-room residence at The Prasada, a famed 12-story building located at 50 Central Park West on the corner of 65th Street. This apartment has never been on the market and boasts spectacular Central Park views from two exposures, plus all of the original 1907 handcrafted details like an ornate mantle, moldings and floors.

What are some features you are noticing buyers are seeking out in the luxury market?

Luxury buyers really do fall into two categories: those that seek the charm and grandeur of established pre-war buildings, and those that are drawn to the modern lines and open layouts of the new condominiums. But regardless of where their aesthetic tastes may fall, they look to service, amenities, views and value. There are buyers who like both, too!

What are the hottest areas for the luxury market in NYC?

The beauty of New York City real estate is that there are many neighborhoods which are “hot” offering something for everyone.

What do you think will be some real estate trends to look for this year?

I am seeing the pace of the market pick up after a year of corrections with buyers and sellers more in line with one another. Over just the past month alone, I have spoken to four sellers who have asked what price they need to list at in order to sell; and simultaneously I am working with several buyers who when they see real value, are making offers close to, if not at ask.
