About Me

Elese Reid of the Edward Lee Cave Division of Brown Harris Stevens specializes in the sale of fine residential properties throughout Manhattan.

Working with the Edward Lee Cave Division for more than seventeen years, her clientele comprises a host of high-profile individuals from different backgrounds with different needs, including current New Yorkers, international celebrities, members of the Forbes Billionaire list, investors, and estate-owned properties for executors. She is often recognized as “the most trustworthy and professional person in real estate.”

Long-time clients, buyers, and sellers alike rely on Elese’s expertise and attention to detail, resulting in the continual flow of referrals on which she has built her business. Her area of concentration is Manhattan, and she has an extensive knowledge of its neighborhoods and residential buildings.

Elese is sought after for her rare combination of superb client service and transparent business practices, as well as a uniquely effective negotiating style reflecting an uncommon mix of personal warmth and perseverance that allows her to save and close deals others may not. Repeatedly praised for her exceptional follow-up, she is a discrete and constant advocate for her clients, keeping them informed every step of the way. She meets challenges head-on to move transactions forward, helping her clients realize their dreams while consistently exceeding their expectations. Market-savvy and highly intuitive, Elese is also a pro at envisioning “the intangible dream,” as she calls it—seeing the “before” of a home and visualizing the “after” to generate ideal matches between client and surroundings. “She spent a great deal of time learning our expectations and preferences,” says one satisfied buyer. “I knew I was in good hands.”

In addition to these qualities and her closing expertise, Elese’s understanding of the most exacting co-operative board requirements and her strong working relationships with industry colleagues are also prized. Buyers respect her ability to identify value in investments and to translate it to their specific wants and needs. Sellers appreciate her enormous client base and professional contacts coupled with the customized marketing approach of the Edward Lee Cave Division of Brown Harris Stevens and the international reach afforded by its exclusive affiliation with Christie’s International Real Estate.

A New Yorker since 1992, Elese grew up in Arkansas. In addition, she lived in Denver, San Francisco and Dallas. She is a member of REBNY (Real Estate Board of New York) and earned the additional distinction of Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE).

Elese enjoys the theater, contemporary art, and photography. She owns her apartment in Manhattan and a home at Lake Waramaug in Litchfield County, Connecticut.
