ANN CUTBILL LENANE
“Annie Gets It Done!”
My nickname, not only in my professional life as one of the top real estate brokers in Manhattan, but in my personal life as well. How lucky am I to live in the most exciting city in the world, make a living doing what I love and I have been blessed with two amazing daughters.
By definition, a “broker” facilitates bringing parties together to sell a piece of real estate, but I see my job as so much more. There are no words to express how honored I feel to have helped thousands of people start new chapters in their lives. The relationships I have nurtured during my 38 year career have enabled me to help long after the deal is done.
There is nothing I love more than trying to make the world a better place in big and small ways!
ONE BLOCK: In response to drastic reduction in trash pickup on the Upper West Side I co-founded ONE BLOCK. Thousands of volunteers signed up and are cleaning not only their block but other areas of our neighborhood in need of help. We also hired ACE (Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless) to supply additional paid manpower to help us keep our community even cleaner. Join our Facebook page ONE BLOCK UWS.
WISE & WONDERFUL WOMEN: Bringing people together feeds my soul, so in the summer of 2019 I founded this group to educate and empower women all women but with a focus on those of us 45 and over. My monthly dinners are free of charge with a focus on women over 45.
GOD’S LOVE WE DELIVER: This fabulous charity home delivers healthy meals to New Yorkers too sick to cook and or shop for themselves. I have been on the host committee for their annual benefit concert “LOVE ROCKS” since it started five years ago. The “RIDE FOR LOVE” annual Douglas Elliman sponsored bike-a-thon is one of my favorite events to support as well.
EEO BAHAMAS: After my daughter Riley was diagnosed with dyslexia in the first grade, her life was changed by getting the specialized help she needed to get her confidence back and thrive. EEO is a grassroots organization focused on helping children on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera (who also have learning issues) get the help they desperately need. Ten years ago my daughters and I started a two week summer literacy camp in partnership with them that has grown to now serving over 70 beautiful children.
