About Lorna

lorna headshotLorna Leibowitz has been ranked among the top-producing brokers at Douglas Elliman. In her 25 years in the business, Lorna prides herself on educating her clients to help them get a jump on the market and maximize their real estate return. Ask any of Lorna’s clients and they will tell you why they would choose to work with her again and recommend her to their friends. In the high stakes world of Manhattan real estate, it is critical to have a broker who is a master at dealing with multiple issues.

When working with sellers, what sets Lorna apart from other brokers is her ability to strategically position a property for sale. She is on top of current market conditions and capitalizes on her previous appraisal career to establish the most likely sales price. Then she assembles her team of professionals to maximize the sales price. Depending on the property she may include a designer to stage the property to perfection, or an architect to provide an alternate floorplan for an apartment with an obsolete or poorly-designed layout. Lorna takes advantage of all the latest real estate technology including video tours and social media. Her efforts ensure that her clients achieve maximum sales prices that often exceed their expectations.

When representing buyers, Lorna works tirelessly to find them the perfect property, even if it means uncovering a place that is not currently on the market. If there are multiple offers on a property, she uses her finely-honed negotiating skills to win the bidding war and get the best possible deal for her buyers. Living in Manhattan, Lorna is an active participant in many of the activities that make our city such an outstanding place to live.

When not in the middle of negotiating a deal, you may see Lorna walking in Central Park with friends, working out at the gym, or at the theater, opera or rock concert with family. When her recently widowed Mom decided to move back to the city, Lorna found her the perfect co-op apartment on the Upper West Side, and negotiated one sweet deal! Putting the board package together for her Mom reminded her just how personal this business really is and how important personal relationships are.
