The CEO Next Door: NYC with Pamela Liebman

Pam has been part of the Corcoran story since 1985, when she joined the company as a 23-year-old agent. Join her on a stroll past the places that have helped define the brand’s 50 legendary years in real estate.

Make it there, make it Anywhere®.
660 Madison · Midtown East

In 2001, Barbara Corcoran sold The Corcoran Group to NRT, the nation’s largest real estate brokerage — now a subsidiary of Anywhere® Real Estate. Pam became CEO in 2000, overseeing the brokerage’s expansion into the Hamptons and South Florida and its acquisition of Citi Habitats, New York City’s largest rental brokerage firm. Today, Corcoran’s clients and affiliated agents enjoy backing from a global leader in residential real estate services.

Developing stories.
145 Hudson Street · Tribeca

It was here — at Sky Lofts — that Corcoran forged its first development partnership. Recognizing a market need, Pam led the 1995 creation of Corcoran Group Marketing, New York’s first dedicated new development sales and marketing firm. In 2005, Corcoran Group Marketing and The Sunshine Group merged, and today, Corcoran Sunshine is a leading marketing and sales agency for luxury condominium projects in the United States.

Topping the charts.
Time Warner Center · Columbus Circle

This game-changing development launched in 2000, Pam’s first year as Corcoran CEO. She points to Corcoran agent Robby Browne’s $45 million sale of the Time Warner Center penthouse in 2003 as a turning point in the city’s (and Corcoran’s) history: “When that deal happened, New York just took off!” Overall, Corcoran is consistently named among New York City’s top real estate firms, and has held down the #1 spot in The Real Deal’s Manhattan brokerage rankings for four consecutive yearsThe Corcoran Affiliate Network, which Pam conceived and launched in February of 2020, is regarded as the fastest-growing real estate brand in the Anywhere® Brands family, with 5,500+ affiliated agents operating from 120+ offices.

Taking the long view.
Billionaires’ Row · Central Park South

For Pam, there’s only one thing better than a view of Central Park: a view of all of Central Park. The so-called “long view” spans the green space’s entire two-and-a-half-mile length, a perspective only achievable along Billionaires’ Row. Under Pam’s leadership, Corcoran has had a part in each supertall building in this Central Park South cluster, including 220 Central Park South, the site of a record-setting $240-million sale in 2019.

Leading the pack.
590 Madison Avenue · Midtown East

Journalists often knock on Pam’s door for real estate insight. As a respected industry figure, she routinely appears as a source and contributor to top-tier publications and media outlets like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Forbes, CNN, MSNBC, Fox Business, PBS, and NPR.

A piece of the pie.
Prince Street Pizza · SoHo/Nolita

What would a story like this be without a local food tip? When Pam’s office was in SoHo, this beloved slice shop was still Ray’s Pizza — the actual original one. Though the name has changed, Pam swears the best pesto pizza in New York City is still right here, on Prince Street.
