A driving force in the real estate industry, Pamela’s extraordinary vision has positioned The Corcoran Group as the industry leader, growing to more than 2,200 agents and expanding its reach to the most prestigious real estate markets in the country. With her seasoned expertise and sharp analytical mind, she anticipates new trends and creates strategic plans for the future.

Pamela joined The Corcoran Group in her early 20s and in a single year became the top agent in her office, helping to cement the company’s growth downtown. From this success she continued to rise through Corcoran’s ranks, and was selected as President and Chief Executive Officer in 2000. She spearheaded the negotiations that resulted in the successful acquisition of The Corcoran Group by NRT, the largest real estate brokerage in the country. Pamela has made her mark at Corcoran by overseeing several major acquisitions, including prominent brokerages in Palm Beach and the Hamptons. She directed the acquisition of Citi-Habitats and the merger of The Sunshine Group and Corcoran Group Marketing to create new development powerhouse, Corcoran Sunshine, solidifying Corcoran’s leadership position in the industry.

A cornerstone of Pamela’s career is her ability to identify new markets and services in the future of real estate, and put the right steps in place to take Corcoran into those areas first. Under her direction, Corcoran Group Marketing was created to represent new construction projects from start to finish making Corcoran the first New York City real estate firm to establish its own new development division. Pamela grew Corcoran Group Marketing into an entity that produced billions in sales, redefining the way The Corcoran Group does business.
