2013 HALSTEAD PROPERTY’S #1 LISTING BROKER
2013, 2012, & 2011 BROKER OF THE YEAR – PARK AVENUE OFFICE

A native Tennessean from Nashville, Louise came to New York in 1987 and knew she had found “home.” For more than 23 years, Louise Phillips Forbes has been a leader in New York City’s residential real estate market, developing a significant following among both homebuyers and sellers throughout Manhattan. From the Upper West Side and Upper East Side to the West Village, Tribeca, and Wall Street, Louise proudly serves prominent New Yorkers.

Known and respected industry-wide, Louise’s sales have long surpassed the $1 billion mark, yet her real estate expertise extends far beyond that of a broker. Louise provides invaluable market intelligence to a wide range of customers, from single homeowners to developers of multi-million dollar luxury buildings, and she is wholly committed to providing personalized service. Throughout her career she has built strong relationships and has been recognized as a highly dependable advocate for her clients and customers.

Louise’s experience in both luxury residential sales and in development projects – over 20 to date – has equipped her with the unique ability to fully understand clients’ needs, navigate fluctuations in the market, and negotiate complicated deals. Louise is known for her market insight, careful guidance and professionalism.

A frequent guest lecturer for the Real Estate Board of New York, Louise has been profiled in Avenue Magazine’s “Influential Women of New York”, and is frequently quoted in real estate articles for The New York Times, The Real Deal, and many other notable publications. For the past few years she has been named in the Wall Street Journal’s “Real Estate Top 200,” which recognizes top real estate brokers from throughout the country.

Louise is committed to balancing work and family, despite all the demands of a successful real estate career. She and her husband Christopher live on the Upper West Side with their two sons, Douglas, 9, and Kenneth, 7, both of whom attend the Windward School.

An enthusiastic supporter of the arts, Louise is an active board member (for more than a decade) for Change for Kids, a non-profit organization that provides cultural arts programs for inner-city school children. Additionally, she is honored to be on the advisory board for The Bronx Museum of the Arts, as well as Art in General’s Commissioner’s Circle, which provides in-depth support to emerging artists for production of new works. Louise has also served on her co-op board as well as the advisory committee for Habitat for Humanity, and attends Redeemer Presbyterian Church.
