Betting on a boom in Manhattan real estate, and the needs demanded by her contemporaries for large apartments and townhouses to accommodate their growing families and sophisticated lifestyles, Amy jumped at the invitation of industry veteran Jaar-mel Sloane to join her in establishing a boutique real estate company, Sloane Square. The year was 1996 and Amy was president of the women's division of a "hip" young sportswear line called Pivot Rules, which had just gone public and had hit all the major department stores with a bang. But Amy wanted to travel less so she set out to learn the residential real estate business at the side of a pro. She was confident that her preparation at the William Morris Agency, where she had trained as a movie agent after graduating from The University of Pennsylvania, would bolster her sales and management skills with clients in the real estate business. Twenty years later, Amy is busy selling luxury apartments and townhouses throughout Manhattan and has enjoyed active years of turning over more than $500 million worth of property. She also gives her time to various activities at her alma mater, Penn, as well as to Tufts University and Westminster School where her children are enrolled and at the Richard Tucker Music foundation which bears the name of Amy's late grandfather, The Metropolitan Opera tenor.
