Who are New York City’s most accomplished women real estate executives? GlobeSt names a dozen women whom the publication says fits the bill. Their list makes up a slice of Real Estate Forum’s Women of Influence, a list of 45 women in that magazine’s current issue.

The GlobeSt list includes Faith Hope Consolo, chairman of retail leasing and sales at Prudential Douglas Elliman. Just this year Consolo has brought a number of prominent international retailers, such as Cotelac, Yigal Azrouel’s Cut 25 and Muska Milano to hot retail corridors.

Another woman to make the list is MaryAnne Gilmartin, an executive vice president at Forest City Ratner, who’s overseeing the Barclays Center project in Brooklyn. She previously directed firm projects at Frank Gehry’s 8 Spruce Street, as well as at the 1.6million-square-foot New York Times building on Eighth Avenue in Midtown.

Adelaide Polsinelli, senior director at Eastern Consolidated, also made the list. Polsinelli, who resigned from Marcus & Millichap this past spring, is known as a high-profile investment sales broker. According to GlobeSt, she has sold more than 800 properties totaling over $4 billion in every asset class during her career. As The Real Deal previously reported, Polsinelli represented the sellers at 37 West 19th Street, which went into contract for $10.2 million. Since joining Eastern Consolidated, she handled the $28 million land sale at 133 Greenwich Street to Hidrock Realty — the site of a hotel, GlobeSt said.

Others to make GlobeSt’s list were Brooke Denihan Barrett, co-CEO at Denihan Hospitality Group, Mira Graetz-Ball, managing director at Centerline Capital Group and Alexandra Hill, managing director at Blackstone Group. [GlobeSt]
