Real estate agency.
As a multiple award-winning Manhattan Real Estate pro since 1996, Aileen has an unwavering enthusiasm for real estate and unmatched diligence in listening to her clients’ needs. She spends as much time as it takes, offering sound guidance to inspire the right decisions. Even after all these years, an incredible 98% of Aileen’s business is based on referrals from an extremely satisfied clientele of local and international buyers, sellers, renters and landlords. Word of mouth is truly the best reward for her outstanding work. Aileen’s dedicated service, boundless energy, great sense of humor and famous ‘sixth sense’ have made her one of Manhattan’s consistent top producers. She’s worked with everyone from first-time buyers to celebrities, renowned chefs, ambassadors, executives and CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. Aileen’s comfort level with people in all positions stems from her years in television production where she developed a network of prominent colleagues and an appreciation for the discretion required of a high-profile clientele. While in LA, she enjoyed a successful run working on shows like ‘The Leeza Show,’ ‘George and Alana’, ‘American Gladiators’ and ‘Sally Jesse Raphael,’ and various networks including ‘E! Entertainment Television’ and ‘Court TV.’ Upon entering real estate, Aileen was a pioneer at her original firm who transitioned from rentals to sales, achieving great success in both markets.
She served as Sales Manager for two of the most successful sales offices in Manhattan and as Director of Sales for a very successful luxury Loft Condominium building in Chelsea, as well as other new constructions and conversion projects in Manhattan. Respected by clients and peers alike, Aileen has been a board member of the REBNY Residential Sales Council since 2003. She also sat on the New Development sub-committee where she and eight other top-producers from NYC firms worked to streamline all new development co-brokerage sales agreements in Manhattan. In 2004, Aileen broke new ground on HGTV’s ‘House Hunters’ Television Show starting their first successful run of Manhattan-based episodes. She was the first New York/East Coast Broker to head up their national show. Her particular episode was voted as ‘House Hunters’ highest rated episode for 2004 and has since rerun dozens of times. Originally from Long Island, Aileen is a true New Yorker who is always fair and professional, driven by integrity, and able to get the job done right!
How will you become the best?
With my exceptional flair for communicating and getting deals closed, I have a long line of 19 years worth of happy & returning clients and customers. If you ask them, they will all agree that I already am the best! ? You cannot become the best unless you always have open lines of communication and listen to the actual needs and desires of your clients. It seems like a simple concept but not often practiced enough.
What fascinates you?
In regards to NYC real estate: I absolutely love architecture and am also a huge history buff. So on the rare occasions that I actually get to stroll through the city and take it all in, I am absolutely fascinated with the different time periods and building designs which reflect them. I LOVE Pre-wars with old world charm and details! I am fascinated by early NY history and how the city evolved to become what it is today!
