As a native New Yorker, Jessie Lookfong prides herself in being a part of New York City’s unique diverse culture. She says, “There’s nothing like the tenacious heartbeat of New York City and it lives within me and all of my fellow New Yorkers– whether you were born and raised here, like me, or whether you decided to chase your dreams in this city. We become part of the city’s unyielding pulse and that somehow, connects us all.” She believes inexorable passion and prudence are necessary ingredients for success and that is the manner in which Jessie conducts her business.
Whether you are buying, selling, renting, or simply need an honest answer regarding real estate, Jessie will work with you exclusively, all the while keeping your best interest at heart. Focusing on Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan, she believes that her clients appreciate and prefer to work with someone who wants to put in hard work in order to find the perfect home. By putting her clients’ needs first, listening to them and coupling her knowledge of the current market trends, Jessie has a knack for finding the perfect home.
Before delving into real estate, Jessie majored in English/Creative Writing, graduating from Hunter College in 2012. During her college years, she worked full-time in retail where she discovered her love for helping people identify products that best suited them. Branching out from the retail industry after college, she managed a family-owned hotel out in Long Island for five years, excelling in sales and negotiating with top vendors, where she discovered her talent in real estate. Her drive to learn as much as she can, paved the way to quickly being promoted to the Management Team at her first brokerage, where she not only managed her broker’s portfolio of 200 buildings, but also closed on her own rentals and sales. Since then, she has honed her craft and specializes in residential properties today.
She consistently creates and builds new relationships, never hesitating to go the extra mile for her clients. According to her, they are not just clients; they are family. Jessie’s strength lies in her capacity to tap into the city’s heartbeat in order to bridge the gap between New York City’s inventory and the needs of her clients with her extensive market knowledge and passion.
