Meryl Jacobs is an accomplished agent, drawing on a long career as a real estate attorney and development executive. Her legal and business backgrounds are a tremendous asset to her clients, helping both buyers and sellers make sound real estate-related decisions by analyzing and understanding the market. Meryl is a strong advocate who assists clients in securing the best possible terms in their transactions. As proof of her hard work and dedication, REAL Trends recently ranked Meryl as one of America’s Best Real Estate Agents in New York.

Skilled at marketing and design, Meryl has the ability to best position a property for maximum exposure, often achieving record prices for her sellers. Applying those same marketing skills for her buyers, she prepares successful board packages allowing for purchases across a broad spectrum of buildings. Meryl consistently secures press for her listings, and is often quoted in top-tier publications such as The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

Meryl received her undergraduate degree from Cornell University and is a graduate of the Fordham University School of Law. She began her career as an agent at Warburg before being recruited to join Douglas Elliman. Prior to joining Brown Harris Stevens, she established and ran her own commercial brokerage and consulting firm.

Meryl is a native New Yorker who raised two sons on the Upper East Side with her husband, Stephen. She is on the board of BoardAssist, the leading board recruiting resource in the tri-state non-profit community. Meryl’s other philanthropic activities include chairing several committees for the UJA Federation of New York and supporting The Jed Foundation, which works to promote mental health and prevent suicide among college students.

When she is not selling real estate, you can find Meryl at the dog park with her rescue Bella, enjoying the beautiful beaches of East Hampton, or exploring the many restaurants New York has to offer.

TESTIMONIALS

“We can say firsthand that in hiring Susan and Meryl, you are not merely engaging top brokers, but advocates as well. They are client-centered and work tirelessly to cut the best deals whether they represent the buyer or the seller. They are smart, patient, and simply a pleasure to work with. We honestly cannot recommend them enough.” – Eric G.
“Both Meryl and Susan have a strong commitment to excellence and integrity. They will approach your project with enthusiasm and initiative, focusing on your individual needs and concerns and exceed your expectations.” – Tricia K.
“Susan Burris and Meryl Jacobs have exclusively represented us in the purchase and/or sale of eight apartments. They are skilled negotiators who often exceeded our expectations on price and terms. They most recently sold a high-end property at an above market price to a very demanding buyer. I strongly believe that the deal would have never closed, but for the persistent and diligent efforts of this team.” – Melissa B.
“As a real estate attorney, I am frequently asked for broker referrals and Meryl Jacobs and Susan Burris are at the top of my list…Meryl and Susan have spent countless hours (in a couple of cases many months) identifying and working with various vendors in order to get a property ready to market. They provide great attention to detail, identify and make specific recommendations, and find vendors to execute the work. Their hard work gets great results. The last apartment they sold for one of my clients closed at the highest price per square foot ever achieved in the building.” – Saree P.
“Prior to working with Susan and Meryl we had been with a different broker and were unhappy with the quality of support we were getting…Meryl and Susan were thorough, consistent, articulate, and avoided hyperbole or over-promising. More amazingly, through their contacts they invited the NY Times Real Estate section to visit our apartment as an example of an UES apartment for their weekend edition.

They were always accessible and responded quickly. And they believed in the apartment. This was critical: if someone is going to be my representative I want them to have the conviction of their beliefs…I know what good looks like in delivering advisory services. With this as the benchmark, I strongly recommend Susan and Meryl as outstanding professionals in their space.” – Manuel de M.
