Stacy values her clients' needs and cherishes their relationships. She is a caring, diligent and dedicated professional who puts 100 percent effort into her work and to helping others.

Stacy's gained extensive experience in sales and service as a 20 year veteran in catering and event planning business, rising to become a top producer and Account Executive for one of Manhattan's premiere corporate catering and event planning companies. Her interests moved into real estate first as an appraiser and now as a residential agent. Originally from Great Neck, NY, Stacy holds a BS degree from Boston University and a Masters in Social Work. She's lived in Boston and in Florida, but believes New York has a uniqueness that simply can't be matched. Working with Stacy, you'll benefit from her passion and enthusiasm as well as her knowledge and follow through. She not only knows the best venues in Manhattan to have great parties and cuisine; she will lead you toward the ideal neighborhood and apartment for your lifestyle. When not busy with clients, Stacy enjoys spending time with her three grown sons and grandchildren. She loves to cook (having attended cooking school including a stint at the Culinary Institute of America). Her other interests include Bikram Yoga, sports, photography, reading and gardening.
