She struggled throughout her schooling, learning later, she had dyslexia. She attended St. Cecilia High School but flunked out and transferred to Leonia High School, where she graduated as a D student.

Corcoran said, “Most importantly, her mother taught her children to try, even if they didn’t succeed. I learned to jump out of the window with the belief that I’d learn how to fly.”


According to Barbara Corcoran, after she left teaching, she worked at least 20 jobs by age 23. While she was waitressing, her boyfriend, Ray Simone, encouraged her to work for a real estate company, starting as a receptionist for the Giffuni Brothers’ real estate company in New York City.
