Jessika Fairchild is who some might call NYC royalty. The granddaughter of publishing king — John Fairchild of fashion bible W Magazine glory, she is passionate about the city and the intertwining legacies.
Jessika enjoyed the best of two New York residential worlds: She grew up on Shelter Island, and in the isle of Manhattan. Interior design and garden landscapes were celebrated throughout her child and adulthood. “Spring Fever,” annually welcomes the choosing of a new palette of paint colors, rearranging of furniture and selecting new accessories.
The concept of “keep what you have and make it new” is a family tradition. Creative inspiration flourished with visits to her grandparents’ international homes, rich with unique architecture and design features. Those early years cultivated practices she leans on today: A simple floral arrangement created from the garden becomes a work of art that beautifies a home.
Prior to real estate, Jessika followed the family tradition of working in fashion. In East Hampton and Manhattan, she worked as an account executive. That work then evolved into operations manager for Ralph Lauren. Jessika is a Lynn University graduate.
Working indoors behind a desk all day is not Jessika’s forte. Prior to working professionally in real estate, she helped friends find apartments throughout New York’s boroughs. She loves the search, the securing of the perfect, special space —their dream place.
Jessika’s long-nurtured taste means she can filter quickly through the BS, and rubbish listings that can frustrate and deter overwhelmed potential clients. She has an eye for exceptional housing and is something of a real estate matchmaker when it comes to finding her clients the home they belong in.
