The Native Society
Deborah Ribner’s approach to real estate is from a visual perspective. Her ability to help a client see what can be done with an apartment comes both from her design background as well as her desire to understand the space of an apartment from inside out. Deborah’s passion for real estate began with the buying and selling of her own apartments. She fell in love with the entire process through her own experience; viewing properties, learning the market, identifying which attributes spoke to her and then navigating the board process to secure her dream home. Her approach is collaborative and transparent. She listens and is respectful of her client’s points of view and their time. Her unrivaled energy, insight, attention to detail and creativity make her a valuable ally for any buyer or seller.
Deborah has become an expert in the Beekman/Sutton areas, making several sales in those neighborhoods, both representing buyers and sellers. Deborah also was recently named one of theNativeSociety’s 2015 Top 10 Rising Stars in NYC Real Estate, for embodying leadership, creativity, passion, initiative and a desire to make a difference in her professional and personal life. Born and raised in New York, Deborah currently sits on her Co-op Board on the Upper Eastside where she lives with her two children.
Your NativeAdVantage: What do you do best?
I think that one of my greatest strengths is my ability to work with almost any type of person. I think that this is a valuable quality to possess as a real estate salesperson because we are faced with working with many different personalities at any given time, and in many situations all at once.
What makes you best?
I think what makes me best is having many different projects that I am working on at the same time. The more I have on my plate, the more I efficient I seem to be. In turn, this makes me a true resource to clients who are looking for a large sense of what is going on in the current market.
Forget about all the reasons why something may not work. You only need to find one good reason why it will.
and my two closest girlfriends. (Dermot Mulroney is a close contender.)
The beaches on the far East End of Long Island
Mountains of Colorado
The streets of New York City (SoHo is still my favorite neighborhood.)
I’m fickle. Never found a product that I couldn’t live without. Lately, I’m most loyal to:
Child Perfume Oil
L’Occtaine eye cream
Alba Botanica Natural Very Emollient Body Lotion (makes your skin silky soft)
