Superbroker A Conversation with PDE's Jacky Teplitzky

In New York, buying and selling real estate is almost a contact sport. The hours are long, the stakes high, the customers savvy and demanding. In a city of eight million people, there are thousands of real estate brokers, but only an elite handful who successfully operate in the stratosphere, brokering multimillion-dollar deals, managing rosters of super-rich clients, and handling some of the most breathtaking residential properties on the planet with aplomb.

Call them the superbrokers. One of their number, Jacky Teplitzky, is the executive vice president at Prudential Douglas Elliman, and recently spoke with The Cooperator about her career, her trade secrets, and her take on New York City real estate.

The Cooperator: You have an unusual background for a New York broker.
