Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that Seta Tunell has joined the firm as a licensed real estate salesperson.

She began her career at French automobile manufacturer, Renault, working in both its New York and Paris headquarters.

“Seta brings a strong sense of priority, discipline, patience and tenacity to her real estate career,” said Richard Ellis, owner of Ellis Sotheby’s International Realty. “These qualities- which were developed over years working with top level executives and on air talent in network news- are an advantage to both buyers and sellers in the often stressful world of real estate transactions. Her background and experience as an entrepreneur and business owner, as well as her international work in sales, real estate development and building, are valuable assets to her clients.”
Tunell brings her clientele a diverse, global background. Born in Cairo to Armenian parents, her family moved to Lebanon when she was two years old and then immigrated to the United States.

I am a firm believer that the luxury market is a level of service and not a particular price.”
