Growing up in Southern California as the daughter of two successful real estate agents, Serena would spend weekends and summers watching her parents host open houses and coloring on notepads with their faces on them. Seeing her parents work taught her valuable lessons that stuck with her throughout her life and career.
In 2012, Serena moved to New York City to attend Teachers College, Columbia University. After graduating, she taught music to students in Queens and then technology in Harlem. After five years of teaching, she decided to channel her familial roots and become a real estate agent. Her experience as a teacher has helped her ease through challenging demands like deadlines or negotiations with understanding and compassion. Teaching also stressed the importance of building long-lasting and trusting relationships, an essential aspect of real estate as well.
Serena has lived and worked in various parts of the City over the years. She has seen the changing landscape of New York City first-hand, from both the Upper West and Upper East Side to Tribeca and all the way to Jamaica, Queens. Serena hopes to bring a unique insight into the city and use it to assist you in buying and selling no matter where you are in the sales process. Today, Serena works on the Edward Joseph Team as an assistant.
Serena recently bought her first home in Washington Heights with her husband. When she is not working, Serena enjoys hosting parties, running along Riverside Drive with her very active dog, and reading books.
