Since she first entered into the real estate sector in 1993, Kirschenbaum has garnered praise for her niche expertise in residential realty in Old Westbury, Muttontown, East Hills, Jericho, Roslyn and the Brookvilles. Kirschenbaum’s unwavering integrity and hands-on industry approach have earned her a loyal, premier clientele that entrusts her with the most important transactions of their lives.

“Real estate sales are enhanced by a broker’s life experience,” says Kirschenbaum. “The search for a home is often one of the most significant events in a person’s life and people rely on a real estate broker to guide them. I’ve had an enriched life and have been privileged to participate in my community, exposure to the arts, philanthropy, travel and all that has contributed to what I bring to the table when servicing my clients, seller or buyer.”
Kirschenbaum’s Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty team has been named as the second-highest production team for the past four consecutive years, in the top 1% of the firm—out of more than 900 real estate agents—and as one of the country’s best real estate professionals by RealTrends.

“You only have one opportunity to make a first impression,” says Kirschenbaum. “Being prepared makes all the difference. I advise my sellers to prepare their homes so that we can maximize their chances of a successful and profitable sale. Buyers should choose their broker wisely so that they are successful in finding the right home.”
Kirschenbaum led the second-highest residential transaction in Nassau County with the sale of Groton Place in 2021—sold for a staggering $18 million—and the highest sale in 2022, for Spring Hill at Old Westbury, which closed for an astounding $12.25 million.
