Devin Hugh Leahy | Co-Founder
Devin is a born and raised Manhattanite who worked for his father, a landlord and general contractor in the city, helping with high-end gut renovations for as long as he can remember. Real estate and New York City have always been deeply embedded in his inner fabric. So much so that Devin became project manager for his dad's company, and left a lucrative position in hospitality to pursue his dream of residential sales. "Real estate is not a pit stop for me; it is my final destination - a longstanding career where I plan to grow and prosper," he says.
Devin takes pleasure in being a trusted advisor and making life easier for his clients, ensuring that they feel comfortable and well informed along the way. He listens intently to your needs, and will dig for answers when questions arise as he likes doing all the research and legwork so you won't have to. Devin also accommodates his clients' schedules, and takes as much stress out of the equation as possible by being knowledgeable, patient, hardworking and efficient.
As former manager and food and beverage director for Cipriani USA, Devin learned that serving clients is something which comes naturally to him and is extremely rewarding. He enjoys building the bridge between his love of Manhattan and understanding of people and their differing needs as a dedicated agent. "I am diligent, respectful, and deeply bound by the happiness of my client. I look at the real estate business through the same lens as with hospitality; it is all about customer satisfaction!"
An eighth generation New Yorker, Devin attended the Trevor Day School from nursery through high school and was a two time captain of Hunter College’s championship soccer team where he majored in economics. He has lived downtown in a co-op, on the Upper East Side in a condo, on the Upper West Side in a brownstone, on Riverside Drive overlooking the Hudson, in the vibrant East Village, on Prince and West Broadway in Soho and currently resides in the Financial District. Devin was a top producing agent for the Luis D. Ortiz team from Bravos “Million Dollar Listing” and recently founded The LS Team where he specializes in working with primary residential buyers, investors, and prides himself on marketing and rebranding property.
