In overseeing day-to-day operations at Stribling & Associates, Stribling-Kivlan has grown the firm’s agent population, overall sales volume, and average sales price.

A fifth-generation New Yorker, Stribling-Kivlan is a graduate of the Chapin School and the College of the Holy Cross, where she studied Comparative World Religions. She started working in real estate in 2001 in San Francisco, as an assistant to one of that city’s top producers.

During that time, Stribling-Kivlan sold property both Uptown and Downtown, as well as in Brooklyn, where she worked on-site at One Brooklyn Bridge Park, the conversion of a former warehouse into 449 luxury apartments in Brooklyn Heights.
Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan was named President of Stribling & Associates, Ltd. on January 1, 2013.
“Brooklyn Bridge Park is part the fabric of my daily life, and I have watched the park grow from its early stages to its current place as an integral park of New York City’s landscape,” said Stribling-Kivlan. “I am honored to work with the entire board on the ongoing efforts of the Conservancy.”
