Susan Ruttner

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker
West Side Office


Tel: (212) 381-2231

Languages Spoken:      HEBREW, ENGLISH

Susan Ruttner's involvement in real estate began with her own family's search for a new home in 1983. Her familiarity with large apartment layouts led naturally to a career shift to residential sales. She was a salesperson at Ellen David Real Estate and then an Associate Broker at Leon Strimber Real Estate and Phyliss Koch Real Estate before joining Halstead Manhattan, LLC in 1991.

Prior to real estate, Ms. Ruttner was a television producer for 15 years. She worked for WNYE-TV and WNBC-TV in New York City, and then spent several years as a free-lance film producer/director. Ms. Ruttner won a Citation of Merit from the New York Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, an Emmy nomination and an Emmy award for her television work, and an award for an industrial film. She also received an award from the New York City Council of Churches for a WNYE-TV program, "Everybody's Lonely". Many of the interpersonal and organizational skills necessary for success as an interviewer and producer have been useful to her in real estate.

Since joining Halstead Manhattan, LLC, Ms. Ruttner has consistently been recognized as a member of the Producers Council (the top 5% of the sales force) and of the Platinum and Gold Circles (those who have handled the sale of multi-million-dollar properties). She has sold over $300 million worth of property.

Ms. Ruttner has been active on several committees in her own coop. She has served on the Nominating Committee, the Mortgage Refinancing Committee, and the Elevator Replacement Committee. She organized the first annual Shareholders' Party, chaired the Lobby Redecoration Committee, and was a member of the Hallway Redecoration Committee. She is a member of the Board of Directors and has been an officer of Lincoln Square Synagogue, was Chairperson of the Junior High School Parents' Liaison Committee of the Ramaz School in New York and is the shareholder in charge of sales and marketing at the Pine Lake Park summer cooperative community in Cortlandt Manor, New York.

When the Salespersons Council of the Residential Brokerage Division of the Real Estate Board of New York was formed, Ms. Ruttner was elected by her peers and served for four years as co-chair of the group.

Susan was co-host and co-producer of Home Sweet Home New York, Halstead’s television program that aired on WWOR Channel 9 during 2005.

35 years as a real estate broker and still going strong!
