In its 2014 list of the top women in real estate, Fortune magazine described Dolly Lenz as follows: 'In New York, I. Dolly Lenz reigns when it comes to the high-profile Megadeal.'
A former Vice Chairman of Prudential Douglas Elliman, Dolly recently left the real estate company to start her own ultra-luxury sales and marketing firm. During her career, she has sold an unprecedented $10 billion in property, including her recent record-setting sales of a $57.0 million triplex penthouse to billionaire Rupert Murdoch and the New York Foundling's $45.0 million West Village Mansion. Dolly has also managed the sales and marketing efforts of many of New York's most illustrious properties, including the Ritz Carlton at 50 Central Park South, the iconic Apthorp and Manhattan House condominiums, The Cipriani Club Residences, and 515 East 72nd Street.
Real Estate: Prior to her entry into the real estate industry, Dolly held various positions in the retail, motion picture and insurance industries. She began her real estate career working in the listings department of a small mom-and-pop firm and was later recruited by Sotheby's International Realty, where she spent over ten years as their top producing broker. She was subsequently recruited by Andrew Farkas at Insignia Douglas Elliman and was instrumental in their sale of Douglas Elliman to Prudential.
Philanthropy: Dolly is not only recognized for her business accomplishments, but also for her philanthropic pursuits. She serves on various charitable boards, including the NYC Police Athletic League - an organisation devoted to the growth and prosperity of over 40,000 inner city youth - The Lincoln Center Leadership Council and The Chopra Foundation. Dolly is also a member of the U.S. Trust Bank of America Business Advisory Board.
