135  Years of Trust

Our founder, William Van Duzer Lawrence, played an integral role in defining the American suburb. He developed Lawrence Park in Bronxville, New York, a model neighborhood lauded by national magazines of the day for its modernity and architectural excellence. The Lawrence family, whose legacy also includes Lawrence Hospital and Sarah Lawrence College, would dominate real estate in lower Westchester, eventually merging with Northern Westchester firm A.T. Houlihan for a countywide reach.
Peter and Nancy Seaman acquired Houlihan Lawrence in 1990, cementing a fourth-generation heritage in Westchester real estate and catalyzing three decades of tremendous growth. Under the leadership of Nancy and her two brothers, Stephen and Chris Meyers, Houlihan Lawrence became the top brokerage north of New York City.

Today, the firm’s 1,450 agents in 32 offices serve various counties across New York and Connecticut including Westchester, Fairfield, Putnam, Dutchess, Columbia, Orange, Ulster, New Haven, Middlesex and New London.


With Liz Nunan at the helm, behind rock solid-financial backing from Berkshire Hathaway's HomeServices of America, Houlihan Lawrence is committed to first-class, personalized service delivered with the greatest integrity and refinement. We embrace cutting edge technology, the latest digital platforms and an ongoing connection to the global market.
