About Melanie McLennan Lazenby

Melanie Lazenby is Douglas Elliman's top grossing broker out of over 4,000 agents nation-wide in 2013, and was the 2nd highest grossing broker in 2011. A real estate professional for over ten years, she has earned every top honor at Douglas Elliman, including the Legend Award, and has been continually recognized as one of the top ten highest producing brokers in the company. Consistently ranked as one of the top brokers in Manhattan, as well as a member of the top 1% of real estate professionals nation-wide, Melanie is in the business of providing full-service brokerage. Recognized as an industry powerhouse, Melanie has broken several records in real estate, most recently with the sale of the penthouse at 18 Gramercy Park for $42,000,000, which set the record for the most expensive apartment ever traded in the history of Downtown Manhattan. With this sale she broke her own record for the most expensive Downtown sale; in 2010 she had achieved it while representing both sides of the deal in the sale of the Superior Ink Penthouse for $31,500,000.

Melanie is regularly featured on television, including NBC's LX Open House, CNN, Extra, and Access Hollywood. She has been nominated for an Emmy for hosting Foundations on Cozi TV—an educational program about historic New York homes. She has also been featured in print, in publications such as the New York Times, the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, Gotham Magazine, Architectural Digest, the New York Observer, and was the only woman named in Details Magazine's 2013 article on the "New Rock Stars of Real Estate." This warm, welcoming, and dedicated professional puts people at ease immediately, and helps guide them through their transactions with her sound market knowledge and guidance on everything from finding a mortgage broker to finding a moving company.

Today, at Douglas Elliman, Melanie works one-on-one with buyers in finding their ideal home. She also provides exemplary full service to sellers, maximizing every sale with her impeccable marketing and negotiating skills. Melanie has achieved over $1.2 billion in sales and sold apartments in some of the most notable buildings in Manhattan such as The Time Warner Center; Superior Ink; Artisan Lofts; 21 Astor Place; The Greenwich; 260 Park Avenue South; 240 Park Avenue South; Trump Park Avenue; 25 West Houston; The Chatham; The Chelsea Mercantile; The Urban Glass House; The Brompton; and The Sherry-Netherland to name a few - often achieving record prices per square foot. Her business model is built on the fact - that when people hire Melanie - they get Melanie exclusively. She does not have a large team, nor does she outsource showings, board packages, or marketing to assistants. Her work with fewer buyers and sellers in an average year other than top real estate teams in order to be able to give each and every person she works with as much personalized service as possible - which has resulted in a solid track record of repeat business with many happy clients.

Highly intuitive, organized, and results-oriented, Melanie has a strong background in marketing and interior design. She graduated from college in Hawaii with a BA in Communications and has worked as a public relations and marketing executive for the Pacific's largest public relations firm in Honolulu. Her incomparable marketing, customer service and organizational skills have been a great asset throughout her career and followed her to Paris, where she studied French at the Sorbonne and handled public relations for Polo Ralph Lauren. Born in London, Melanie lived in Sydney, Australia and Santa Monica, California before moving to Manhattan in 2000.

In addition to being a long-standing member of the Real Estate Board of New York, Melanie is also a member of Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate. Melanie also gives to her community as a Young Advocate for the Human Rights Watch, a volunteer for New York Cares, and an active member of the Junior League. Enjoying city life is her daily routine, yet traveling to places far and wide is always appealing when time allows.
