Jennifer Restivo Carey has been committed to providing value and excellent service to New York City clients since obtaining her real estate license in 2010. To date, Jennifer has either directly brokered or coached sales agents through over $200 million worth of gross transactions, giving her a truly informed and expert knowledge of the NYC marketplace. Specializing in first-time buyers as well as condo, co-op, new development, and resale properties, Jennifer provides an openness and ease that is often neglected in the world of real estate. Jennifer transitioned to the industry from working as a professional television actress and certified yoga teacher. Her unique background makes her an excellent listener, communicator, and educator. She supports her clients with attention and care in order to ensure a seamless and transparent transaction process. Coupled with a gift for spatial awareness, she has a knack for matching her clients' vision with just the right property. Jennifer also works closely with owners, developers, architects, and others to curate finishes, appliance packages, and floor plan designs, as well as to advise on staging and marketing strategy for maximum returns. Jennifer joined REAL New York in 2016 and was promoted to Director of Sales shortly thereafter. She holds an Associate Broker’s License and, in addition to being a managing director at REAL New York, Jennifer leads a team of over 20 sales agents and runs the junior agent sales training programs. Originally from Maryland, Jennifer earned her MFA from the University of California, Irvine and her BFA from the University of Maryland, Baltimore. She lives in the East Village with her husband and fellow REAL agent, John Carey, and their "Pugwawa" dog, Juniper.
