Contact Iris Palley


Esteemed real estate broker Iris Palley offers an unmatched level of enthusiasm for New York City and for the people who choose to live here.

Iris is a city native who knows every block and building. A respected real estate broker for decades with a multimillion-dollar sales history that stretches from the southern tip of Manhattan to the Upper East and Upper West Sides.

Having seen firsthand how the industry reacts to various economic cycles, she truly excels at pricing homes correctly, in any neighborhood, under all market circumstances. Her unique background in early childhood education and fashion design provide a patient, informed and creative underpinning to the selection process.

Iris is known among her loyal clientele for her great judgement, diplomacy and tact, especially when working with estate sales ̶ ̶ ̶ she has deep reverence for the emotional aspect of selling longtime homes. She also has an innate ability to pinpoint the most serious and qualified buyers, and she respects each seller's time and privacy.

Iris enjoys working with people who have imagination and a sense of adventure. She is strategic, hardworking and savvy and she makes each client feel like they have a friend and confidant on their side.

After closing, she can be relied on to dispense any recommendation a New Yorker could need. She is incredibly fun and generous with her time and often represents entire families, their associates and friends through multiple transactions.

Iris is a longtime resident and fixture of the Upper East Side's East End neighborhood; a collector of first-edition books, period clothing and other treasures. Not to mention a passionate dog lover- when she is not hard at work for her clients, you might find her in nearby Carl Schurz Park or Central Park with her beloved rescue pup, Serena.
