Meet TOWN's Jennifer Von Ruden September 27, 2013

NoHo, Manhattan
Meet TOWN's Jennifer Von Ruden, Manhattan, New York

What is your most memorable NYC moment?

Buying a Christmas tree with my roommate years and years ago. We dragged the smallest, cheapest tree we could find from a nearby Christmas tree store in Battery Park City when it was snowing. The city had never looked so beautiful. It was my very first Christmas season in New York, and from that point on I knew this is where I should be.

What is your favorite Manhattan neighborhood? Why?

I love Gramercy. The architecture is incredible, and it has so many great restaurants to offer. Gramercy Park is very special and unique, and unlike any other park in New York.

Why did you choose to pursue a career as a New York real estate professional? What is your favorite part of the job?

I've always had a passion for real estate, and knew I needed to follow that. The idea of helping someone find their dream home excites me. I love learning more about all the inventory in New York and the ever-changing nature of the market is a fun challenge.

What is your greatest motivator?

My boyfriend. He inspires me with his incredible work ethic and systematic approach to getting things done. He stays positive, and also shares the same passion for real estate.

What are your greatest passions?

I've always been a painter. It's a great way to unwind and keep variety in my life. I also love traveling, seeing new parts of the world, and playing tennis.

If you could invite anyone to a dinner party, whom would you invite?

Will Farrell, obviously.

If you had only one day left in NYC, how would you spend it?

Figuring out how and why I decided it was a good idea to leave, and how I can come back ASAP.
