Chairman Ian Kleier started Kleier Residential in 1995 as a joint venture with his wife Michele Kleier – already one of Manhattan’s top real estate brokers. Prior to forming Kleier Residential, Ian had an illustrious career in the advertising world first as a copy writer for BBDO, then as Vice President-advertising for Loews corporation and finally as the head of Cavaleri & Kleier, a dynamic advertising agency specializing in entertainment and travel.

At Kleier Residential Ian handles the marketing and business end of the company while Michele concentrates on the brokerage side, along with his children Samantha and Sabrina.

Like his family, Ian is an animal lover who supports multiple animal charities including the ASPCA, Bide A Wee and The Humane Society. He is also a classic movie lover and has an extensive collection of original movie posters and entertainment memorabilia.

Since its inception Kleier Residential has become the leading boutique real estate brokerage in Manhattan and the only one that is family run and managed. The company has over forty brokers covering all of Manhattan.

In late 2009 Kleier Residential was selected as one of two Manhattan real estate companies to headline HGTV's real estate reality TV show, SELLING NEW YORK.

The TV series became an overnight rating hit in its first year and continued its run through season 8. Ian along with the rest of his talented family play major roles on the show.
