Elizabeth Lee Sample

Elizabeth Lee Sample is one of the most successful real estate brokers in New York, where she is responsible for some of the largest and most important real estate transactions, including the penthouse at The Pierre. She has achieved some of the highest prices-per-square-foot ever paid for luxury property in the City. Elizabeth is the board president of The Residences at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, 80 Columbus Circle, in New York City as well as on the boards of the Master Association of the acclaimed Time Warner Center. She and her business partner, Brenda Powers, were among Sotheby's International Realty Upper East Side's top five brokers for 2012, and were identified by The Real Deal as the fifth highest listing brokers in 2010, 2011, and sixth highest in 2012, with listings on the Forbes “Top 10 Most Expensive Properties for Sale” lists in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2013. In addition, Elizabeth was named among Gotham's “New York Billion Dollar Brokers” in December 2013. Elizabeth possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of the Manhattan real estate market and an excellent business sense. She is low key and personable which is a winning combination that has earned her a stellar reputation during her 27-year career selling residential and commercial properties. She is responsible for well over $1.7 billion in sales, and $2.2 billion in equity for developments.

A swift glance at her current listings and past sales immediately indicates that she is more than comfortable in the world of high end luxury properties. Captains of industry, overseas clients, and many individuals in finance, entertainment, and celebrities alike are no strangers to Elizabeth. But she has her priorities straight, recognizing residential real estate's dual role as a personal investment and also as an important financial one. This is where her keen financial acumen comes into play. Her approach, however, continues to be conservative. From small to large transactions alike, she has the gift of listening to and understanding the unique needs of every single client. Her focus is solely on creating that perfect match, and effecting the most appropriate and fitting purchase possible.

Working closely with Brenda, Elizabeth brings considerable experience, financial savvy and extensive knowledge of co-op boards on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side, a perfect counterpoint to Brenda's flair for marketing and public relations. Together, they produce extraordinary marketing materials for their clients including beautiful brochures and compelling ads, an impressive array of sales tools that will showcase properties to their best advantage.

Elizabeth always gives her full and undivided attention. Nothing deflects her from the purpose at hand. A winning smile, a calm, assured manner and unparalleled knowledge of the market inspire confidence that your purchase or sale is being handled by a consummate and most dedicated professional.
