Specialties

Generalists »

I focus on high-end New York city real estate, mostly large family apartments in the Upper East Side, Upper West Side and the Sutton, Beakman and UN neighborhoods. Most of my business is between $1 million and $20 million range for both co-ops and condos. I pride myself on knowing the schools, sports and arts programs throughout the city.

First-time NYC buyers »

I work quite a bit with first-time buyers and consider it an education process. Aligning all of the pieces of the puzzle so that buyers are ready to go to contract when they find a place they love is paramount. I want my buyers to feel fully educated as to the current marketplace so that they are certian they are getting the very best deal possible based on the their wants and needs. If that means looking at 50 apartments, so be it. Put simply, I want my first-time buyers to be happy and excited when they get their set of keys at the closing table.

Buyers moving to NYC »

Moving to Manhattan can be a daunting task. I have a lot of empathy for buyers relocating -- I was not born in NYC but have lived and raised my family here for over 20 years. Finding the right place (and getting to feel at home) in a short amount of time takes knowledge of the city and a broker willing to put in the elbow grease to make it happen. When I find a place for someone new to the city, I always make sure they are fully armed with info on the best schools, markets, dry cleaners, wine shops, gyms and restaurants in their new neighborhood. That enables the transition to New York City to be as seamless as possible and allows a new resident to hit the ground running.

Pied-a-terre specialists »

Pied-a-terre buyers are looking for something special, sexy and architecturally signficant -- or maybe just a place to hang their hat a few days a month for work. Knowing which buildings allow pied-a-terre ownership is a must, and knowing which buildings have that something extra to make coming home to New York like a stay in a luxury hotel, is my specialty.

Agent's personal statement

Within a year of starting in the business, I was honored by the Real Estate Board of New York for the "Deal of the Year," which applauded my perseverance and sharp negotiating skills in a complex transaction. My dedication and tireless work ethic were honed in a lifetime of competitive sports. As a five-time World Champion and Hall of Fame water skier, I was named one of the "100 Greatest Female Athletes of the Century" by Sports Illustrated.

 

Prior to beginning my real estate career, I worked as a broadcast journalist with ESPN, Fox Sports, and Outdoor Life Network. Today, as a Managing Director at Warburg, I represent buyers, sellers, investors and renters of residential properties in all neighborhoods in Manhattan. As a mother of two school age children, I am particularly attuned to the needs and wants of families. Also, having been a former professional athlete myself, I have utilized my unique experience to develop a specialized practice to address the needs of professional athletes.

Our summary of
Camille Duvall-Hero

"Prior to becoming a real estate agent in 2001, Camille was a professional athlete and sports broadcaster. In fact, Sports Illustrated named her as one of the Top 100 Greatest Female Athletes of the 20th Century. We think that Camille utilizes the same skills that made her a world-champion athlete to help her clients achieve their goals -- her clients consistently point to her determination and perserverance."

“Efficient and charming broker. Good listener.”

My experience working with Camille to purchase an apartment was wonderful. She's very efficient and also very charming. Camille is a good listener and she took the time to understand exactly what I was trying to accomplish. She spent lots of time, and worked very hard, to help me to achieve my goals. She got me the price that I wanted so I appreciated that. I was very happy working with Camille and have already recommended Camille several times.

I had a very positive experience with Camille. I never expected that selling a home could be a fun process, but that’s exactly how I’d describe working with Camille. She’s a very upbeat person with a can-do attitude, and that’s very helpful in a potentially stressful situation such as relocating out of NYC. I was particularly impressed with Camille because she not only brought a professional attitude and plethora of knowledge to the table, but she also brought her extensive people skills, which enabled us to find a buyer very quickly. I’ve already recommended Camille to a friend of mine, and she had a very successful experience with Camille, as well. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell property.
“Amazing attention to detail. Extremely professional.”

Aside from being an all-around nice person, Camille is very knowledgeable, engaging and professional. Her attention to detail is amazing. I worked with Camille to rent my apartment, but even though the project was small, Camille treated me as if I was selling a $5 million apartment. That is what impressed me so much. During the process, I found Camille to be precise, thorough and extremely responsive. If I were ever to sell my apartment, I would no doubt use Camille. She is one of, if the not the, most professional real estate agents that I have ever worked with.
“Fantastic listener. Truly understood the types of apartments that fit my needs.”

My experience working with Camille was great. I had been renting in NYC and I worked with Camille to buy my first home. The first time we went out to see apartments, we saw a variety of types. Quickly, Camille was able to hone in on the type of apartment that I was looking for. She really understood the types of properties that exactly fit my needs. Because she was such a great listener, she didn't waste my time showing me apartments that I would not be interested in or could not afford. Camille also understood the kinds of renovations that would be required in many of the apartments we looked at. I have already referred friends to Camille. I would absolutely recommend Camille to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in New York City.
“Consummate professional. Honest, realistic broker.”

Camille is a complete delight. She is a consummate professional and was available 24/7. She is polite and easy to work with, yet just as importantly, she is realistic and straight to the point. Her straight-forwardness is critical to helping her clients achieve their goals. Camille can be nuanced as well: she was incredibly diplomatic during difficult negotiations which helped facilitate the deal. One of Camille's strengths is her perspective on the market at any given time. She studies the market and understands the complete picture. She also understands, not only the market trends, but the underlying reasons for those trends.
“She was truly an asset for me.”

Camille is a wonderful person to work with. I was going through a very difficult move for me, since my husband had recently passed away and I needed to sell our penthouse apartment. She presented the apartment very creatively by including nearby attractions, shopping, and public transit in the listing. Once the property was sold, she even helped me with moving all my belongings and antiques. When we looked for a new home, she never tried to sell me anything. Instead, she tried to see what I needed and did everything she could to help me find that. Her attitude was lovely, and she was always helpful and cooperative throughout the move. She was truly an asset for me. I would certainly recommend Camille to my friends and family. Not only is she a very capable broker, but she’s also a delightful person.

Working with Camille has always been a pleasure due to her professionalism and follow through. Even in this turbulent real estate market, working with Camille continues to be a very smooth experience. She’s always does what she says she's going to do, and she makes the client her top priority. I first contacted Camille six years ago when I was selling my five bedroom condo and because that experience went so well, I hired her again this Spring to sell my three bedroom apartment - which she sold in a matter of months. I think that sale, more than anything, speaks to how great of an agent she is. I have happily and readily recommended Camille to several friends over the last few years and will continue to do so. She is top notch.
