With over twelve years of success as a real estate agent in New York City, Annette Elvey provides competence, elegance, and a high level of personal care for her clients. After working as a top producer and founder of the International Division at Fox Residential, Annette transitioned to Brown Harris Stevens where she continues to excel almost exclusively through referrals from her satisfied clients.
Annette is a certified New York Residential Specialist, an advanced graduate designation open to qualified brokers who aspire to the highest level of professionalism, leadership and ethics, as well as an active member of REBNY.
In addition, Annette is a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) by the Real Estate Negotiation Institute (RENI), to which she attributes her remarkable success at negotiation. Agents who receive this certification are in the top 1% of all agents nationally and as RENI CEO and co-founder Tom Hayman asserts, “Any Buyer or Seller who hires a CNE agent can feel confident they have one of the best trained negotiators in real estate.” Annette’s ability to find creative solutions to close even the most difficult transactions has earned her the respect and admiration of her peers and clients.
As a South African native and a New York real estate investor herself, Annette provides her firsthand knowledge and expertise towards the real estate process as well as an understanding of both her international and domestic clients’ needs. She has a discerning eye for the best available properties and a thorough knowledge of the distinctive characteristics of Manhattan’s diverse neighborhoods.
Outside of real estate, Annette enjoys art, literature, classical music and opera. Previously she worked as an art dealer, art history teacher, and certified art appraiser.
