Lisa Garey has worked as a real estate agent for 15 years, the last four at Compass. Along with advising clients in other fields, she represents multi-Grammy award-winning and nominated musicians, singer-songwriters, producers, managers, and music industry executives in the purchases, sales, and rentals of their homes and investment properties in New York City — and worldwide, by referral. A Manhattan resident for 35 years, she was born and raised in an entertainment business family in Los Angeles, CA, the daughter of an entertainment attorney (who represented, among others, Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, and Francis Ford Coppola), the niece of a film producer (who made, among others, “Summer of ‘42”), and the sister of a novelist and screen-/TV-writer (SoHo Press, Sony, Columbia TriStar, NBC, CBS, Lifetime). Before becoming a real estate agent, Lisa was a writer and magazine editor for such publications as Vogue and Vanity Fair. She has a BA from UC Berkeley and an MFA in Writing from Columbia University.
Lisa creates compelling campaigns for sellers showcasing properties to their best advantage, while also translating buyers’ needs into a real property at a fair market price. Clients benefit from her communication and research skills, and innate ability to deal with complex logistics and financial scenarios.
Lisa’s clients appreciate her gentle, yet effective, powers of persuasion and a finely-honed talent for negotiation and consensus building as a Certified Negotiation Expert, as well as her professionalism, integrity, and attention to detail. Much of her business now comes through referrals and happy repeat clients. She works with clients all over Manhattan and Brooklyn.
