Born and raised on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Shpresa witnessed the ins and outs of apartment real estate from an early age, as her father was a resident manager of some of the most high-profile buildings along Park Avenue and the Museum Mile. It was then that she developed a profound appreciation for the real estate world. She later lived in the West Village and acquired her taste for cozy, intimate spaces and sense of community that guides her business practice today.
Shpresa Elezi has been a licensed real estate broker in New York City since 2001. Shpresa’s organizational skills and assertiveness are some of the necessary traits she brings to Julianna Realty (her Real Estate Brokerage Firm), but it is her energetic and nurturing nature and her remarkable interpersonal skills that set up a wholehearted and welcoming atmosphere. It is this cheerful personality that not only puts a smile on everyone’s face but it is that very nature that also forms longstanding relationships with clients, owners and tenants, whom she likes to keep in touch with long after they have moved out, easing renters through life’s little transitions.
As the proverb goes, behind every successful man, there is a great woman. This has never been truer than in the case of Rick’s wife, Shpresa, who balances out her husband’s serious business mindset by instilling an equally important feeling of personal attention to the staff, residents and clients. Where else can a client be greeted by candy, flowers and music generating a warm and caring atmosphere as soon as one steps inside? “I have worked with Rick for the past 16 years” says Shpresa, “together we present a supportive family environment that our clients, residents and staff say they have never before experienced.” Shpresa’s unflappable nature and her warm welcoming spirit make everyone in her presence feel relaxed and cared for.
