A top Prudential Douglas Elliman agent, Iva Spitzer, has defected to rival Corcoran to work in new development.
Spitzer, who was the No. 3 producer at Elliman in 2003, has signed on as an executive vice president within the development sales and marketing division at Corcoran.
Spitzer has more than 20 years experience working with new developments and had been named the top producing broker on Manhattan’s Upper West Side during her tenure with Prudential Douglas Elliman several times.
Previous projects of Spitzer’s include 171 West 57th St., 426 West 58th St., 45 Walker St. and 190 Riverside Drive.
“New York City is poised for an avalanche of new development activity and we are leading the charge to help ensure that demand for new homes be met in a way that meets the discerning tastes of today’s home buyers,” said Pamela Liebman, Corcoran’s chief executive. “Iva’s expertise will aid in these efforts.”
Spitzer is also a photographer who has shot the people, culture and wildlife of Africa, and has had numerous shows of her work over the past decade.
