While experienced is all, investment sales is now the focus.  Each side of commercial has been researched, presented, and negotiated leading up to the consummation of a lease or a sale.

Deals of particular significance:

  • 230 Fifth Avenue Lounge
  • 580 Madison Avenue, Bonhams
  • 610 West 56th Street, Terminal 5
  • Plaza District Office Building, to be announced


Business Experience:

Elizabeth’s career began in advertising at Y&R and Compton (now Saatchi.) She retains the “do it now” dictate of broadcast advertising.

Capitalizing on the agency experience of new product introduction, she retooled her skills toward entrepreneurship crafting business plans to attract venture capital.

Coming from a family involved in Manhattan office leasing, it is not surprising she made a career change to Lansco. She was fortunate to be trained by Howard Dolch, a principal, in office leasing.  Now she gravitates to projects which incorporate several commercial components.

Professional Highlights:

MIT Enterprise Forum, Board of Directors. Guided both MIT grads and other established entrepreneurs in development of their new ventures. Initiated the first program in NYC for creating a board of directors for new companies.

Office of the Mayor, Marketing. Received commendation from the Mayor for work with the Ambassador to Algeria.
