REBNY Rookie of the Year, 2019
Halstead Sapphire Club, 2019 (Closed Deals from $3M to $6M)

Meggie’s journey in real estate was born from a passion for relationships, community, and a deep appreciation for the ways real estate transactions impact lifelong personal and financial goals. With a background in client services and over a decade of city living, Meggie thrives on helping clients navigate the New York real estate market and achieve their goals.

Whether your goal is to find a forever home, build wealth through investment, or sell your property, Meggie loves the challenge each transaction brings and finds satisfaction collaborating with clients and exceeding expectations. Her industry knowledge, sales skills, and ability to close were recognized when she was awarded the prestigious Real Estate Board of New York’s Rookie of the Year award in 2019.

As a mother of three young New Yorkers, Meggie firmly believe that Brooklyn is the world’s smallest town. You can find her around the neighborhood running in Prospect Park, shopping at the Food Co-Op, and taking her kids to weekend birthday parties at Ample Hills and the Prospect Park Zoo. She loves participating in the life of the borough and especially enjoys introducing clients to all the unique opportunities Brooklyn has to offer.

"Meggie was an outstanding agent for our co-op sale. What made Meggie stand out for us was her trustworthiness, dependability, and honesty. We were on a tight timeline as we were moving out of state, and Meggie helped us navigate milestones with clear communication and reasonable expectations. We felt we were in very good hands as we proceeded with our sale, and at every point, she really went above and beyond what was expected. (She even helped me hang extra wall art!) We have enthusiastically recommended Meggie to friends and acquaintances and will continue to do so." - Park Slope co-op sellers

"We had the pleasure of working with Meggie this year as we looked to purchase our first home. Being first time buyers, it was important to us that we take our time to find the best home that suited our needs and most importantly made financial sense. Working with Meggie we felt well taken care of and never once did we feel pressured or rushed into making offers we weren’t ready to make. She was as invested in the search as we were and proved herself to be a valuable guide in navigating the NYC real estate market. She was infinitely patient with all our questions and quick to respond in our communication from beginning to end. We can’t recommend her enough!" – Melissa and Harin

"We were so grateful to have Meggie represent us as we simultaneously sold one co-op and bought another. Attempting to both sell and buy at the same time is particularly tricky, especially with two children and a newborn in tow, but Meggie was so thorough, helping us plot a timeline and giving thoughtful suggestions about how to present our situation to prospective buyers. Meggie never rushed us to begin sooner than we were ready, or to pick a place before we fell in love. Instead she listened to us and our needs at every turn, partnering with us to make sure both our sale and purchase were a success.

Besides being detail-oriented, Meggie was our advocate in everything, from offers to negotiations. Knowing you are going into what can potentially be a stressful situation with someone who is truly on your team, honest, and for your good, changed the whole experience. She didn't miss anything, and at the times we were the most anxious, she stepped in with her calming presence to listen, help, and smooth the way. We could not have done it without her and would recommend her to anyone looking to navigate the mercurial waters of Brooklyn real estate!" – Tom and Kaytie
