Luxury Homes and Real Estate - Sotheby’s International Realty

New York City Real Estate

Laura Wagner got her start in real estate in 1994. Within one month, she was named the exclusive listing broker for a newly converted luxury loft building on Thomas Street in Tribeca. The success of that listing led to many other exclusive listings, both in Tribeca and Soho.

As her client network expanded, so did her focus on sales locations. She has represented luxury properties on the Upper East and West Sides, as well as several townhouses, including a mansion at 10 E. 75th Street that received an accepted offer the first day it was on the market.

Laura’s comprehensive marketing approach comes from a love of history and architecture. She has worked with the Landmarks Preservation Commission as well as Friends of the Upper East Side Historic District in accumulating information to assist in marketing her properties.

Laura Wagner is the Director of Film Locations at SIR. The program is spearheaded by MADE in NY, through the Mayor’s Office of Film. It enables location managers, directors and producers to search for unusual properties suitable for film, events, photo shoots, and television.

Laura had the idea to create a service that facilitates outstanding locations for the film community when she was approached by a location manager who was interested in using a Tribeca loft she was representing in 1995. It was implemented years later, in 2004, when she joined Sotheby’s International Realty and presented the idea to the company.

Now in its 10th year, locations on the film site have been booked by Hollywood’s most esteemed producers, film makers, and actors. For more information visit the website at: http://www.sothebyshomes.com/nyc

Laura’s life in Manhattan is equally diverse. She is a member of the Real Estate Board of New York and has served on the advisory board of the Harlem International Film Festival. She has also been a member of Friends of the Upper East Side Historic District, since moving to Carnegie Hill in 1993. Her other interests include writing, travel, architecture, film, and dance.
