Advisor - Michelle Zelena


A New Yorker at heart. As any true New Yorker knows, you need to get away often to really appreciate the city. I have a home in the Catskills and fly to Miami and internationally often.

Home airports

LGA is a 10-minute early morning ride, but EWR has the best selection of flights and times.

My travel style

I’m all about the personality of a space, and I prefer a mix of boutique hotels and homes over the more commercialized brands. I travel to see something new and always look for non-chain restaurants and things that I wouldn't be able to find anywhere else.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Wine tour in the south of France.

  • Safari adventure honeymoon outside of Johannesburg.

  • Road trip through Southern California.

  • Relaxed bachelorette in Miami.

Dreaming of:

  • Tokyo and the surrounding countryside.

  • Barcelona, Ibiza and the beach towns outside of the city.

  • Finland and Russia.

  • Copenhagen.

One thing I can't travel without...

My iPhone – I love taking pictures and hate getting lost (unless it's on purpose).

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I am fluent in Russian.

  2. I have been to a safari in India.

  3. I have a house in the countryside.
