Kathy Mayer Braddock

From 1993-2001, Kathy Braddock was the Executive Managing Director, General Sales Manager for Douglas Elliman (DE), New York City’s and suburban New York’s largest residential real estate firm. There she supervised the entire residential brokerage division of 14 managers and more than 1,100 real estate agents throughout New York City, as well as suburban offices in Connecticut, New Jersey and Long Island. Her responsibilities at DE also included oversight of the relocation and corporate services area.

Prior to joining DE in 2000, Ms. Braddock was a principal in the Intrepid New Yorker, which she founded in 1982. Ms. Braddock turned the Intrepid New Yorker into New York City’s premier destination services company, handling relocation and resettling-in services for individuals and Fortune 100 and 500 corporations who were moving their executives and employees into the New York Tri-State area. That area, which extended to a 75-mile commuting radius to Manhattan, included over 500 viable residential communities. Her success required first matching the relocating individual (and/or family) with the community that would meet their specific needs and desires, and then narrowing their housing options, taking into account price and style. In this capacity, she oversaw a team that worked closely with a hand-picked group of real estate agents from various firms throughout the area. Her knowledge, background and expertise on the New York Tri-State area culminated in her co-authoring two books about living in New York. The most recent, published in 2000, was entitled How to Live the Good Life in New York.

Ms. Braddock is a New York City native, educated at Hunter and Brearley. She received a BA from Vassar College. She is a member of the Real Estate Board of New York, New York Women’s Agenda, and the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. She is also a member of the board of Hands On Food Incorporated. She has been active in New York City real estate for over 20 years.
