Most challenging moment?
Having kids. However, it is also the most rewarding.

Personally, my family and friends are my favorite people. Professionally, I really like the people that come to look at a super expensive listing and look like they do not have 2 cents to rub together, and turn out to be the gazillionaires that buy the property.
In NYC I love to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and sit in front of the giant picture of George Washington crossing the Delaware. It makes me feel like I could do a back flip. Outside of NYC I like Italy. They have lots of olives and watching the Miss Italia contest is pretty funny. Applying make-up qualifies as a talent.
Cole Hahn shoes, Stuart Weitzman shoes. The Cherry Honeybee cookies at Glaser’s Bakery on The Upper East Side are amazing. I love Florence Meat Market in The West Village. If you get a roast they wrap it in fat and seasoning. Sounds gross, but melts in your mouth. Lastly, the doughnuts at Dressen’s Bakery in East Hampton are to die for.
At the moment putting together model buildings. My son has a Lionel Train set and we are working to create the scenery that goes with it. Assembling the buildings and painting the tiny details is totally relaxing as well as an opportunity to own lots of real estate. We go to Jan’s Hobby Shop in Carnegie Hill for our supplies. The owners are a mother and son. They are super cool.
