Fern Hammond is a consummate real estate professional with 35 years of experience. Fern grew up in Manhattan, attending P.S. 6 and The High School of Music & Art. After graduating from the University of Colorado in Boulder in 1975 having studied Fine Arts and Architecture, upon her return home to New York, she began the search for her own apartment. She quickly discovered her passion. With her appreciation and knowledge of architecture, her love of working with people and thriving on constant action – real estate was the perfect business for her. She started in rentals in 1977, then worked for Beloff Properties from 1987–1991 as the Director of Sales for The Sage House at 4 Lexington Avenue and The York River House at 1175 York Avenue. After two a very successful sellouts, she worked for MLBKaye International Realty which was also a Prudential affiliate for 15 years. She was Co-Director of Fine Homes & Estates and a constant top producer earning the Prestigious Chairman Circle & Legend Awards.

In 2006 Fern joined Halstead as a Senior Vice President and was quickly promoted to Executive Vice President. She is also a member of The Diamond Club, having successfully closed deals over $10M. Fern has been interviewed for articles in New York Magazine, New York Times Real Estate section and has appeared on Law Line and other local Real Estate shows as an expert in luxury apartments sales and how to handle a difficult negotiation. Fern is known for her absolute tenacity and fierce loyalty to her customers and clients. The sellers she represents boast about their record breaking prices, and the buyers she represents brag about their great deals. She has sold over $1 billion dollars worth of property during her career and is consistently in the top 1% as a top earner amongst Halstead Property LLC's 1,500 Brokers.

After 35 seasoned years, Fern is the ultimate enthusiast known to pull 7 day weeks for months on end to get the job done - going so far as to show a 4,000 square foot loft Downtown at 1:00 a.m. to see if the music from the night club on the block could be heard from the apartment. Adept at winning bidding wars for her buyers and creating them for her sellers, this is the broker you want on your side of the deal!

Sold a Condo home in 2013 in Upper East Side, New York, NY.

I have know Fern Hammond for approximately 30 year. She is the most active broker in my building 1175 York Ave, NYC. I have listed apartments with her for rent and for sale. She has always been honest and effective. I would recommend her without reservation. Andrew Goldstein, MD

Bought a Cooperative home in 2007 for approximately $500K in Gramercy, New York, NY.

Fern helped guide me through the process of buying my 1st apartment. Her knowledge and skills were invaluable. While exhibiting patience and understanding with me during weeks of searching, I saw another side of her when we found an apartment I liked. She fought for me and I couldn't have been happier with the end result. Thank you Fern for everything.  More Less

Sold a Cooperative home in 2009 in Upper East Side, New York, NY.

Fern has been our broker in two real transactions. Through her skillful pricing and subsequent negotiations the sale of our apartment reached a new price point for our apartment line in the building.

In assisting us in the purchase of our new co-op Fern's expertise was invaluable in preparing the Board Package and guiding us through the process. We recommend Fern for her up to the minute knowledge of the market, attention to detail and her availability throughout the entire process.  More Less
