Introducing My New Team

Please meet Ariane, Emily and Barbara. We’re getting better, not just bigger!


Emily Shepodd is a dynamo: always on top of the latest listings, and ready to help me assist buyers at every step. Emily hails from Seattle, but after 6 years in Brooklyn nobody knows better what the latest, best, new thing in town is.

Ariane Dembs has been a top rental broker with Corcoran for three years and is joining me as rental specialist and operations manager. Ariane recently bought a 5th floor walk-up in Prospect Heights and now has quads of steel. More important, she knows how it feels to be on the other side of the table.

Barbara Katsnelson has been with Corcoran for five years and will lead marketing and advertising efforts for our listings and our team. She brings extensive project management and new development sales experience. Like me, she believes in the importance of creating and maintaining meaningful relationships with clients. Barbara will be working on all our marketing pieces, including a monthly newsletter!

One name is missing: Mary Klein. After six amazing years as my right-hand woman, Mary’s getting married and moving to California! While I’m sad to see her go, I couldn’t be happier about why.

When real estate agents expand their teams, clients can worry they’ll lose the direct attention of their agent. That’s not why I’m doing this. With Emily, Ariane and Barbara’s help, I can focus on what matters most: my buyers, my clients and their listings. Plus you’ll have all four of us working for you, for the price of one!

Even if buying or selling isn’t on your mind, please reach out if we can be of help in any way. And if you’re considering, buying, selling, trading-up or down — or just exploring long-term plans — we’re here for you.
