Michelle, Samantha and Sabrina Kleier are the mother-daughter trio stars of the hit reality TV show Selling New York and authors of Hot Property. Michelle and her two daughters run Gumley Haft Kleier, selling luxury real estate to New York's most affluent. Although they have built a major city business and international following, family is their bedrock and key to success.
Location: New York City??
Expertise: Real Estate, TV Personalities (Selling New York), Authors? (Hot Property), and most important Mothers, Daughters, Sisters. Oops–and Wives!
Interests: Animal charities, old movies, fashion and celebrity magazines, and most importantly Family.
Background: Samantha and Sabrina are forever New Yorkers, but Michelle was born and raised in Pittsburgh and left the day she graduated college. So we have a little small town in us that we hope we never lose. Michelle has been in real estate for nearly 30 years, Samantha was an executive VP at the entertainment PR company Susan Blond Inc. and Sabrina was a producer at Access Hollywood.
Favorite meal: Anything with the Family but if we have to get specific…
Michelle: A salty dark pretzel, an ice cream sundae at Serendipity, an order of French fries from Fred’s, and a large frozen margarita our father makes.
Samantha: Spaghetti Vico (the best Bolognese sauce—it has cream in it!), a glass of lilet with frozen fruit (a mom original), a piece of heavily buttered hot sourdough bread from Sfoglia and chocolate from See’s.
Sabrina: A luxurious dinner at the prettiest restaurant like Jean Georges at the Mark, a mojito from Ricardo’s and an ice cream cone from Marvel.??
Michelle: An exquisite vintage Chanel chicklet in Red.
Samantha: A great LBD from Yummy Mummy (perfect to disguise the last 10 pregnancy pounds I have to lose). ?
Sabrina: A gold and enamel charm bracelet from the 1930s – fabulous!
Hidden talent: Samantha and Sabrina used to tap dance. Mom was Social Worker of the Year and was a computer programmer in the 1970s and now she doesn’t even use a blackberry!
Book/film recommendation: Anything classic. Right now we are very? into old Hitchcock—the fashion alone is a reason to watch! Also, our must read: Hot Property by the Kleiers.
Restaurant recommendation: We are very tried and true—Vico and the? original Palm! But our favorite restaurant is a BBQ at our best friend and neighbor’s house at the beach.??
If I had $20, I'd...
Michelle: Where would 20 dollars get you? Not even to my office anymore!?
Samantha: Hide it in my wallet for emergency cash since I never have any on me. ?
Sabrina: Splurge on a really great large cup of mint lemonade at Le Pain Quotidien (a few times!).??
Transformative travel experience: Our family’s summer house in? Atlantic Beach, an escape back to the 1950s!??
Dream holiday: Sitting on a beach (that allows dogs) with our? whole family and having no cell or blackberry service.??
If I could solve one problem, it would be: Figuring out how to travel back in time.??
Recent aha! Moment:
Michelle: That I am actually the Gword (the mother of a mother).?
Samantha: I like to live in denial, so am still waiting for aha to come…
Sabrina: That I can sleep in my fake lashes from filming and look glam for days!
