The A Team, Led by Award-Winning Agent Patty Anker, Joins Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty’s Irvington Brokerage

Irvington, N.Y. (August 22, 2023) — Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that Patty Anker, a Westchester Magazine Top Real Estate Agent 2023 honoree and multi-year top-producing agent, has joined the firm’s Irvington brokerage. As the team leader of The A Team — consisting of Anker along with Chia-Jung (Harper) Dion, SaraChan and Lucy Breen— Anker brings a wealth of real estate knowledge as well as a unique approach to generating both buzz for her team and stellar results for her clients.

Licensed in 2018, and honored with multiple awards including 2019 Westchester County Rookie of the Year with her prior firm, Howard Hanna Rand Realty, Anker made a splash in 2022 in an episode of HGTV’s popular House Hunters as a featured Realtor with buyers who found a home in Pleasantville. She frequently works with clients in the Rivertowns as well as Pleasantville, Chappaqua, Briarcliff and Katonah, and has experience with every aspect of residential real estate, from relocation to estates to working with investors.

Prior to real estate, Anker thrived in a wide-ranging marketing career that included positions such as Director of Media Relations for The New York Times and Associate Director of Publicity for W.W. Norton & Company. She is also a sought-after speaker, author — her book SOME NERVE: Lessons Learned While Becoming Brave was an Book Club 2.0 pick — and popular life coach who has helped people push past their fears to live bigger and braver lives.

“I’ve loved my other careers, but real estate is what I was born to do. Helping people move—literally and figuratively—into new stages and spaces is an honor and a joy,” Anker said. “Sotheby’s International Realty elevates the rare and exceptional in a world of mass production, and personal touch in an age of A.I. Bringing our mission—to open doors to home ownership, close deals to build generational wealth and create community with clients who become neighbors and friends—to Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty is a dream come true.”

Also joining the company as part of The A Team, Chia-Jung (Harper) Dion specializes in the Lower Hudson Valley including Garrison and Cold Spring, N.Y. Fluent in Mandarin, Dion is a real estate investor, former entrepreneur and yoga instructor. Sara Chan also speaks Mandarin and comes from a family of real estate investors. Anker, Dion and Chan are all Licensed Real Estate Specialists. Lucy Breen serves as the client care specialist for the team.

“I am excited to welcome Patty and The A Team to our brokerage, where their keen knowledge of luxury real estate, broad client base and local community leadership will be key highlights for us,” said brokerage manager Virginia Doetsch. “Clients will greatly benefit from their dedication, organization and highly responsive approach to service.”
