NEW YORK CITY, NY - Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan, President of Stribling & Associates, was interviewed by Ariel Stulberg of The Real Deal about what books she is currently reading. Published on August 1, 2015, the article also includes insights from Rob Lehman, Head of Strategy & Sales at Compass, another huge leader in New York real estate.
Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan discusses her recent fiction binge, naming "Neapolitan Novels” by Elena Ferrante as her current obsession, which "trace the story of the lives of two women starting in childhood in Naples in the 1950s." Rob Lehman, on the other hand, just finished “Blue Ocean Strategy” by W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne, a book that helps him "deftly sidestep destructive competitive dynamics in markets, and to focus on growing the size of the pie, rather than simply trying to take a larger slice of it"
