Caryn was born in Far Rockaway, and raised on the Gold Coast of Long Island. Caryn’s parents were born and raised in Brooklyn where Caryn spent much of her childhood visiting her grandparents. Her grandfather owned a wholesale paper and twine business on Havemeyer Street in Williamsburg for over 40 years. While growing up, Caryn always heard her great-aunt Judith tell stories about the wonders of buying and selling real estate. Judith was one of the largest owners of real estate in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. She primarily owned commercial buildings that she leased out to business owners on long-term leases. Judith was a savvy businesswoman who taught Caryn the importance of being informed, fair, and an overall good human being in all real estate business dealings.
Earlier in her career Caryn spent over 20-years in education as an inclusion advocacy and curriculum modification specialist, and after that ventured into the world of tech by becoming a contract worker for Google. Always having a passion for real estate, Caryn decided to make it her full-time career.
