About Judith

Many years ago, steadfast Manhattanite Judith Lief fell in love with Brooklyn at a time when the big question was still, “Will our friends ever cross the East River?” For the young newlywed with a burgeoning career in architectural publishing, the move from the West Village would make Judith a passionate and lifelong advocate for the borough years before it was remotely considered trendy.
Once relocated, Judith enjoyed a successful 20-year career in publishing, first in the art department at Old-House Journal, and then as co-founder, editor and art director for shelter magazines, “Traditional Building” and “Period Homes.” She would later discover that the experience naturally dovetailed with buying and selling historic brownstones. It would also equip her with a deep and nuanced understanding of restoration, craftsmanship, preservation, and construction, all of which now enriches the insight she provides her clients regarding their own homes.

Judith prides herself on her warmth and responsiveness — her clients know they will never have long to wait for a return call or email. Her extensive management experience has given her the ability to gracefully maneuver the nuances of each unique real estate transaction.
Judith and her husband, a supervising producer for Brooklyn Independent Media, raised their now steadfast-Brooklynite daughter and son in Park Slope. An active philanthropist, Judith is passionate about the volunteer work she does on the executive boards of both the Park Slope Civic Council and the Lauri Strauss Leukemia Foundation.
