Camille Duvall-Hero

Real estate broker, world champion women’s professional water skier, proud mother, charity supporter

Camille Duvall Hero is Director of Sales at Warburg Realty, an exceptional firm that has been at the forefront of New York real estate for over 100 years. Camille dove into her real estate career with the same enthusiasm and tenacity that drove her previous success as a world champion women’s professional water skier and, later, a sought-after broadcast journalist. She needed to not only meet but exceed a whole new set of complex professional and personal expectations, which were fundamental for the growth of the New York high-end luxury market — and for Camille’s own growth as a broker.

All this said, Camille Duvall Hero‘s foray into real estate was in no way easy. Duvall-Hero had friendly connections to real estate movers and shakers in city real estate – her mother was an agent in New York –  but she herself hadn’t had much experience in the field. Prior to her career shift, Duvall-Hero had worked as a  journalist for ESPN and Fox, covering national water skiing events, the X Games, WNBA games, and NHL Hockey. While Camille’s professional responsibilities as a journalist and experience as a professional athlete weren’t strictly transferable to her work as a broker, the time she spent in both careers did equip her with the determination she needed to break into the real estate industry and make a name for herself as a professional in the field. After putting in countless hours of effort, Camille was certified as an agent and began making the professional connections which would ultimately helped jumpstart her career as a real estate broker. A few years into her career, Duvall-Hero represented a sale with the now-president of Warburg Realty, Frederick Peters. Impressed with Camille’s professionalism and hard work, Peter encouraged her to join the firm as a broker – and after some deliberation, she did. Camille Duvall-Hero has worked at Warburg Realty ever since.

Within her first year at Warburg Realty, Camille Duvall-Hero had proved her acumen in negotiating and closing major transactions. She earned a “Deal of the Year” Award from the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY). In 2015, after a decade as a top broker at Warburg, Camille was appointed Sales Director for the firm’s new office in the Flatiron District. A year later, she was named one of the three new inductees to the Ethics Committee of REBNY, as well as named to the Executive Board of New York Residential Specialists (NYRS).
