Starr has over 10 years’ experience in the luxury real estate market. She began her career in Florida and took on a marketing role at Rose Associates in New York before moving into luxury leasing. Now a proud member of the highly respected David Rosen Team at Douglas Elliman, Starr specializes in sales, serving as a real estate wealth advisor for first time buyers and seasoned investors alike. She works with her team to provide dynamic marketing for home sellers and endeavors to obtain often elusive accepted offers for buyers based on their needs and current market conditions. “Finding a listing is easy. The challenge lies in what comes next, accepted offer through closing. That’s where my expertise comes in. There’s a right home for everyone and I will make it my mission to find yours. My family has always been heavily involved in real estate so I learned from a young age the powerful impact owning and investing in property has, if you use the right tools. I firmly believe ownership is crucial not only for maintaining your current lifestyle, but for ensuring long-term financial gain.” Starr owns personal and investment properties in Manhattan. She is a well-versed and active agent in most neighborhoods. A 13 year NYC resident, she especially enjoys working with first-time home buyers, drawing on years of knowledge to educate and guide them. All the way to a milestone closing! First-hand experience lends to her proven success in obtaining positive outcomes for even the most frustrating buying or selling endeavors. Her background in residential real estate, property investment, marketing and PR provided the exposure and discipline necessary to build unique solutions suiting her diverse clientele. A Colorado native, Starr went on to attend Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. She is passionate about buildings and architecture; and exploring all avenues to find a good deal – the perfect formula for a super-agent! Outside of work, her hobbies include long-distance running, travel, urban balcony gardening, and book clubbing.
