One of the industry’s most knowledgeable and respected figures, Mary Kernan Rutherfurd is a top producing broker at Brown Harris Stevens. She started with the firm in 1984, winning the Rookie of the Year Award in her first year. In 1996, she broke the record for the highest sales price ever achieved for a cooperative apartment with the sale of Laurance Rockefeller’s Penthouse at 834 Fifth Avenue…the first residential real estate sale ever reported on the front page of the New York Times. In addition to countless cooperative and condominium sales, Mary has continued her success in achieving the highest prices for properties sold in any given year with the sales of the penthouse at 1060 Fifth Avenue, and the apartments belonging to the Estates of Bruce Wasserstein and Edgar Bronfman at 927 Fifth Avenue and 960 Fifth Avenue respectively.

Buyers, sellers and fellow brokers alike seek out Mary’s advice because of her professional expertise, judicious counsel and vast understanding of Manhattan’s residential real estate market.

In January of 2014, Brown Harris Stevens presented her with the President’s Award, created to recognize outstanding achievement and the display of character and commitment that brings honor and credit to Brown Harris Stevens and the industry. Mary is one of only four agents ever to receive this honor.

For the last thirteen years, Mary has partnered with her daughter, Leslie Coleman. They have been named to The Wall Street Journal / Real Trends Top U.S. Agent list, and garnered much attention for selling the three Huguette Clark apartments at 907 Fifth Avenue in addition to the record sales referred to above.

Mary and Leslie’s partnership thrives because they have earned the trust and loyalty of their clients: sellers, buyers and attorneys, who keep returning to them with referrals. They have developed these relationships because they are known for their market knowledge, integrity, discretion and, above all, their professionalism. To bring a deal to a successful conclusion requires focus, organization, creativity, and a broad understanding of the market, as well as strong interpersonal skills. Leslie’s and Mary’s complementary talents and strengths make them a highly effective team that achieves the best results in a timely manner.

A native and life-long resident of New York, Mary graduated from Wheaton College with a B.A. in History. She and her husband, Winthrop Rutherfurd, Jr. – a partner in the law firm of White & Case – live on Fifth Avenue. They have a weekend house in the Beaverkill Valley in the Catskills, and spend time in the summer on Fishers Island, NY. They are parents to three grown daughters.
