For Laura Glekel Sirkin being in New York City residential real estate is a natural. She grew up in Manhattan - initially on the West Side and then moving to the East Side. She went to school in New York City at Fieldston, Barnard and Columbia University Business School. She married and moved back to the East Side. She knows Manhattan and its buildings intimately; not only as a real estate salesperson, but only as a native New Yorker can. As a real estate salesperson, Laura has been involved with apartments of all sizes and locations - from the one bedroom condominium to the large Park Avenue cooperative. To all of them she brings the same caring dedication and knowledge. Using her marketing and finance skills from her MBA at Columbia and her prior work experience, she bringsa unique combination to the residential real estate market. Laura believes that an apartment is both a home and a major financial decision. She understands the sensitivities that this creates and brings a knowledgeable straight forward approach to the business. Caring about her clients, she pursues their goals and is alwaysavailable to them. Laura stresses that "It's all worth the effort; satisfied customers are the mostgratifying and important part of any transaction." Her referrals are testimony that her clients agree. Laura joined Brown Harris in 2004 after being with another prominent New York brokerage firm for a number of years.
