John Olsen ventured into residential real estate following an illustrious luxury brand marketing and management career with Ralph Lauren, jeweler David Yurman and Tommy Hilfiger, where he was a corporate senior vice president directly responsible for global marketing strategy supporting more than $1 billion in annual retail sales. After 20 years and much success he took pause to refocus his professional resources on a true personal passion: Manhattan homes and architecture.
His wraparound expertise in advertising, sales promotion, public relations and web-based marketing are rare in any field and particularly so in real estate, contributing quantifiable value to sales transactions. Buyers appreciate his aesthetic sensibility, honed by years of working with the world's top photographers and art directors, which helps them visualize the unique potential in each property considered. John's strategic negotiating skills ensure that both his sellers and buyers realize the most advantageous deal terms possible.
John is a native Ohioan, but having lived his entire adult life in Manhattan, on both upper and lower Fifth Avenue, on the Upper West Side, and in Greenwich Village and Tribeca, he now qualifies as a true New Yorker. Still, his midwestern roots and low-pressure approach put all his customers at ease. He loves the city's culture and energy but escapes often to a woodsy cabin in New York's scenic upper Delaware River Valley region.
