Kathy Sloane is one of New York’s perennial top agents. Sloane, who has been at Brown Harris Stevens since 1986, has brokered more than $1 billion in deals — $125 million this year alone. Her celebrity clients have included Robert Redford, Diane Sawyer and Martha Stewart. She’s also helped the Clintons buy two homes, one in Chappaqua and the other in Washington, D.C. Last year, Sloane found a buyer for the $70 million penthouse at the Sherry-Netherland, and this past October, she relisted the sprawling pad for $86 million.

This month, The Real Deal sat down with the power house broker, who once occupied a front row seat in New York’s literary scene, rubbed elbows with George Plimpton and Norman Mailer and stepped into politics as the first lady of Kentucky.
