For more than 27 years, Louise Phillips Forbes has been an industry leader in the New York City real estate market. With career sales in excess of $2.5 billion, she is considered one of the elite Power Brokers in Manhattan. A four-time winner of Halstead Property’s esteemed Broker of the Year award in the Park Avenue office, Louise has also been acknowledged as the #1 listing broker companywide. She has developed a significant following among developers, homebuyers, and sellers throughout Manhattan. From the Upper West Side and Upper East Side to the West Village, Tribeca and Wall Street, she proudly serves prominent New Yorkers.

Louise’s experience in both luxury residential sales and in development projects – over 30 to date – has equipped her with the unique ability to fully understand clients’ needs, navigate fluctuations in the market, and negotiate complicated deals. Recognized as a highly-dependable advocate for her clients, Louise has built strong relationships and is known for her market insight, careful guidance, passion, and professionalism. She considers herself more of an “educator” than a salesperson.

For the past several years, Louise has been named in the Real Trends/Wall Street Journal’s “Real Estate Top 250,” which recognizes top real estate brokers and teams from throughout the country, and she has been featured in Avenue Magazine’s annual “Influential Women of New York” and had cover-story honors for House New York and Mann Report magazines. Additionally, Louise is frequently quoted in real estate articles for The New York Times, The Real Deal, Real Estate Weekly, and many other notable publications and blogs. She has also appeared on regional TV shows nationwide to comment on local real estate issues while representing the national real estate perspective.

Louise is a guest lecturer for the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) and has been a panelist for the Asian American Real Estate Association’s East Meets West Luxury Real Estate conference and the annual Inman News Conference in New York, as well as a consistent contributor to Halstead Property’s Empowerment Programs.

A resident of the Upper West Side, Louise is a native of Nashville, Tennessee, and first came to New York in 1987 to pursue a career in dance. She knew she had found home and is now balancing work and family as a wife and busy mother-of-two sons, both of whom play hockey.

An enthusiastic supporter of the arts, Louise is an active board member for Change for Kids, a non-profit that provides cultural arts programs for inner-city school children enriching their educational experience and path to success. Her years of passionate service captured the attention of Melanie Grayce West, who featured Louise in her prestigious WSJ column, Donor of the Day. Furthermore, she is honored to sit 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. In the past, Louise served on the advisory committee for Habitat for Humanity.

When she’s not racing around the congested streets of Manhattan negotiating deals, you’ll find Louise spinning at her local SoulCycle, where she gets her groove on to the beats of celebrity instructors (and friends) like Stacey Griffith, or surfing in Montauk with her family.
