Betsy S. Green has enjoyed an illustrious career in residential real estate brokerage that has spanned decades, with more than 35 years at Douglas Elliman. This veteran power broker has earned countless coveted awards, including two Lifetime Achievement Awards and many others for her exemplary performance and stellar sales record.
Over the years, Betsy has been involved in hundreds of millions of dollars of real estate transactions, plus served as an advisor to major corporations and builders. An aficionado in high-end properties, she has sold luxury apartments in some of the New York City’s most prestigious buildings as well as very special townhouses on the Upper East Side, and throughout Manhattan. Betsy also actively services luxury-seeking real estate clients in the Hamptons in Long Island as well as exclusive Palm Beach, Florida, and is a prominent member of these communities.
Her elite clientele appreciate Betsy’s encyclopedic market knowledge gained over nearly a lifetime of living and selling in the world’s greatest city, as well as the Hamptons and Palm Beach. She has worked successfully with generations of prominent families, garnering ongoing repeat and referral clients that comprise the majority of her business. Betsy is highly attentive to her buyers’ and sellers’ needs and protective of their financial interests. She considers it equally important to find a good value when they buy, that will also appreciate and yield a strong return when the time comes to sell.
Respected by her colleagues and sought after by the press, Betsy takes great care to always service her clients with utmost confidentiality. She is the ultimate authority for guidance on the market, and for securing properties that are not even available for sale thanks to her wealth of connections and resourcefulness. Betsy is excited to now share her thriving business with her daughter, partner and best friend, Patricia Isen, an icon in the fashion industry for over 30 years. Patty brings a seasoned eye for design and the latest trends to the team, creating an enviable partnership that clients adore.
Betsy loves spending time with Patty in and out of the workplace, particularly when it involves seeing her son-in-law and two grandchildren. A believer that if you do well you should give back, she has run major fundraisers as the former Director of the Parks Council of New York. Betsy also sits on the Advisory Board for Evelyn Lauder's Breast Cancer Research Foundation. She is one of the chairpersons for the organization’s major luncheon held in NY at the Waldorf for the past 20 years and is a co-chair of the Palm Beach event for many years as well. Betsy also enjoys golf and tennis in her spare time.
