When two of the most successful New York City brokers joined forces in 1992 to specialize in the high-end luxury hotel-living lifestyle, cooperatives, condominiums, and townhouse markets, people took heed and listened. The names Elizabeth Lee Sample and Brenda S. Powers have gained worldwide acclaim for their integrity, financial expertise, and creative, results-driven, and successful marketing, advertising, and concierge VIP services. Working together for over 25 years, Elizabeth and Brenda have pooled their half-century of combined sophisticated talent, global travel experience, and ultimate educational pedigree into one cohesive entity, The Sample-Powers Team.
Visionary and forward thinking, they are always on the lookout for emerging market trends. When the concept of hotel/condo living was first introduced, they were swift to understand the many opportunities it presented and became familiar with every aspect of the market. This entailed consulting with professionals ranging from developers, global hotel brands, and construction personnel to interior designers and decorators. In fact, they chose this very lifestyle for themselves - making their home in the Residences at the Mandarin Oriental in Manhattan's famed Time Warner Center, built by Stephen Ross of The Related Companies.
Another key to the team’s success is their rare understanding of cultures, branding, and marketing in today's luxury residential market. They have formulated an integrated and systematic approach to producing everything a client needs to market a property successfully.
Their experience with and exposure to different nationalities and cultures of the world is yet another characteristic that sets The Sample-Powers Team apart, along with their unique, efficient, and extraordinary services. From high-powered professionals and business magnates, to international diplomats and fashion cognoscenti, they are equally comfortable with all. While they are accustomed to working in the rarefied, confidential, and privileged world, they retain a sensitive and well-balanced perspective that makes them equally successful with clients from all walks of life.
Jane Klaris has recently joined the Sample-Powers team with 20 years of onsite high end real estate experience.
