A native New Yorker, Lauren Muss has been in the real estate business since 1994, achieving more than $5 billion in sales.  Since 2007, she has been consistently recognized by the Wall Street Journal as one of the "Top 100” agents in the nation, and "Top 10" in NYC.  She was awarded Top Individual Broker in 2017, 2016, 2013 and 2010, and consistently ranks among the “Top 10” brokers in the industry; she also received the "Deal of the Year" award in 2007.
 
Lauren’s expertise extends across all prime neighborhoods of Manhattan, as well as all property types – whether it’s a coop, condo, new development or townhouse – giving her the unique ability to present her clients with pertinent and specific, real-time information and market overviews.  Lauren’s result-oriented negotiating skills have helped her achieved record-breaking prices throughout her career, and she has been responsible for some of the top sales in NYC.  Her reputation, roster of closed sales, consistent hard work, persistence, and professionalism speak for themselves.
 
Her commitment and discretion are highly valued by her clients, which include celebrities and entertainment executives, CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, partners from major investment banks, real estate executives, sport figures and executives, as well as the fashion industry, and international high net worth investors.

Lauren's stamina and desire to succeed has followed her throughout her life.  She is proficient in French, and a graduate of Tulane University with a degree in Business.  Prior to venturing in real estate, she ran her own high-end accessory company, marketing and selling products nationally. Her innate instinct for business, finance, and her love for the art of the sale, allow her to streamline the transaction process and negotiate the best deal possible when representing clients. The customers she works with appreciate her keen ability to understand their needs, and represent their interests by helping them achieve their real estate goals.
