Faith Hope Consolo July 25, 1945 - December 23, 2018 Douglas Elliman Real Estate

Recognized worldwide as the “Queen of Retail,” Faith Hope Consolo was renowned for her expertise as a consultant and retail broker who had been instrumental in revitalizing and sculpting retail corridors across the nation -- and beyond. The sheer volume, size, and distinction of her transactions combined with her exceptional experience in a global array of retail markets, have set the highest standards among real estate specialists. As Chairman of Douglas Elliman’s Retail Group, Ms. Consolo was responsible for the most successful commercial division of New York City’s largest residential real estate brokerage firm. Her understanding of the industry and expertise of the retail landscape enabled her to strategize with retailers throughout the country, from unveiling national expansions to the debuts of flagship stores in locations spanning global capitals to suburban power centers. She knew that style knows no price point. The result was an extensive client base that included such top-tier fashion, jewelry and beauty names such as Alexis Bittar, Alice + Olivia, AYR, Benefit Cosmetics, Bond No. 9, Buccellati, Bulgari, CADAR, Cartier, Bruno Magli, Christian Louboutin, Fendi, Ferragamo Fogal, Fresh, Giorgio Armani, Jimmy Choo, Manolo Blahnik, Michael Boris, Paul Morelli, Perrin Paris, Peter Millar/Richemont Group, Robert Clergerie, Robert Marc, The Daily Edited, Thierry Rabotin, Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, as well as globally based mass merchandiser Zara. Her diverse base also encompassed private and public in- vestors, entrepreneurial owners and developers with significant portfolios or single assets. She also represented some of New York's best known landlords, including President Donald J. Trump and Larry Silverstein.
