Keynote Speaker: Kirsten Jordan
As a real estate broker, avid public speaker, and the first female cast member of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York, Kirsten Jordan has brokered an astounding half a billion dollars in sales. During her decade in real estate, she’s worked with Fortune 500 executives, Oscar-winning actors, and mega-influencers with millions of followers. A passionate real estate investor and someone who’s sold out three new developments in the city for a total of $100M in new development sales, Kirsten understands firsthand what it means to evaluate a property from all angles – and sell it.
In 2020, she was cast on the Emmy-nominated Million Dollar Listing New York and featured in every episode of Season 9. This opportunity led her to being a contestant on Family Feud, a guest on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and an expert on countless TV segments. You may have seen her featured on CNBC, Variety, Bloomberg, The New York Post, Yahoo! Entertainment, Thrive Global, and The Real Deal.?
Kirsten’s team brings back the sophisticated human experience missing from the sensory overload of modern real estate searches. With expertise gained from more than 45 years of combined experience and over $3B sold, they take care of their customers. A deep understanding of the nuances of the buyer and seller experience makes them the perfect advisors for any transaction.
This mom of three school-aged children shares her love of real estate and family with her 35,000 followers, helping them find their dream home and career. Look out for her forthcoming book that aims to do the same.
