"After many disappointments with too many real estate agents, we were lucky to meet Alessandra when we did. We immediately saw that this was a person who was not knowledgeable, but passionate about her job. We trusted her guidance during many ups and downs in selling the warehouse our family owned for 35 years. Through her honesty and perseverance, we were able to come to a satisfying conclusion. We highly recommend Alessandra as a trustworthy agent to friends and colleagues who are looking for someone hardworking and who really cares." - Nicole & Lenny B.

"I could not have been more pleased with my experience working with Alessandra DeLaCruz. She handled the entire process of selling my loft with total grace and knowledge, making it painless. Everything about the experience and process could not have been better. She is a pleasure to work with." - Jean F.

"Alessandra was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her knowledge of New York is hard to come by. She is extremely attentive and found the perfect apartment for me very quickly. During the whole process from to closing, her communication and availability to answer any of my many questions far exceeded my expectations. When I unexpectedly had to move, I knew I could rely on Alessandra to sell my apartment. With her guidance, I was able to find the right buyer quickly as I was on an expedited timeline." - Dino A.

"My wife and I have lived in New York for a decade. In that time, we have dealt with a slew of real estate brokers and agencies, ranging from the abysmal to the excellent. Alessandra and Compass are by far the best. It is as if they are playing a different game altogether.

Alessandra is the exceptionally rare blend of serene support and vigorous perfectionist. Despite the fact that the parameters of our search fluctuated wildly a few frantic weeks—from three bedrooms in Gowanus to two bedrooms in Soho/Noho/TriBeCa/Gramercy, before settling on Turtle Bay—Alessandra was not patient but encouraging. We always felt as if we were with the best of friends, whose chief end was to see the world through our eyes. Alessandra’s calm demeanor and infectious good humor made the ordinarily arduous process of apartment-hunting fun. Just as important, though, was Alessandra’s extraordinary professionalism. We were particularly enamored of the diligence and care she put into curating apartment-visit itineraries and dossiers to make best use of our time. She was always up to speed on each apartment’s listing history, building, and neighborhood before every visit, so we were properly armed to assess the place and its price immediately.

Compass, too, must share much of the praise. The website and mobile app are phenomenal. Beyond the clear and simple search interface, the power of collaborating on collections—sharing thoughts about each apartment and honing our search in real time—is a game-changer. I remained addicted to it (possibly still) long after the search was done for its elegance and ease of use. I’m left thinking thoughts I would before have considered ludicrous: I can’t wait to search for another apartment.

We have never before conducted such an expansive and oscillating apartment hunt. We have never before felt so in control of the whole process. And we have never before felt so happy to pay a broker’s fee—for Alessandra’s support and insight were worth every penny."
- Yousuf & Marjolaine

"Alessandra represented us on the purchase of two condos and then renting one of the properties. I can not recommend her highly enough. She is very competent, responsible, knowledgeable of the NYC real estate market, not to mention a pleasure to interact with. I recommend her and her team with confidence to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent. Thank you, Alessandra!" - Marina Z., purchaser / landlord

"Alessandra walked me through the process of purchasing my very first home-- an apartment in NYC. She helped me analyze my options and made the process a whole lot less intimidating. She is personable, warm-hearted, intelligent and business-minded. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!" - Lindsay Adler, buyer

"Alessandra was an absolute savior when it came to looking for our first home. It took us a few short weeks to find our perfect home, but it wouldn't have been possible without Alessandra's intuition about where our new roots should be planted. As a couple we differed on things, but Alessandra found so many choices that fit each category my husband and I were looking for in a home. The real kicker was her invaluable insight into the buyer process, giving us tips and information that I think if we hadn't heard would have made it near impossible for us to consider. We could not recommend someone more highly!!! - Roxy & Willem

"We had Alessandra assist us in purchasing a corporate apartment in NYC and couldn't have been more happy with the service level and follow through. She was an amazing person to work with and went above and beyond in every way! Now we have a beautiful apartment in Manhattan and will certainly be using her services again for the next purchase." - Cale M.

"I had an amazing experience working with Alessandra as my buyers broker! Through her expertise about the various types of property owning, she was able to help me figure out what makes sense for me to do and how to do it. We found an awesome exclusive deal together that hit all the marks. Super nice person to work with, amazing knowledge, really on your team, and easy + productive to work with. I've already recommended her to others! Wooooo!!!!" - Ethan H.

"Alessandra was amazing. A true professional. She has the experience and the knowledge to understand the pulse of the market. From beginning to end, she found us the perfect investment property. From negotiating to advising on the board package, she knew it all. She knew how to make the deal a reality. She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking for the best!" - Janelle & Peter S.

"I met Alessandra at an open house and we immediately hit it off. From there we started my home hunting journey. Alessandra was very patient with my process and helpful in guiding me and answering my questions. She really felt like an advisor. I appreciated her productivity and motivation to find me a home, which manifested into setting up multiple showings and open house tours. She was empathetic and positive which was always appreciated as house hunting can be stressful for people. I would 100% work with her again on my next home purchase." - Kareem R.

"Alessandra was a joy to work with - she helped my husband and I find a home we love and guided us through a process that was far from straightforward or easy. From day one, she was in touch with listings to consider, carefully planned house tours, and great advice. She had our back on a few occasions especially, going above and beyond to steer us away from bad decisions (whew!) and toward smart ones. Always at the ready to respond to a late-night text or answer the phone, Alessandra is kind, compassionate - and really very cool." - Megan & Sam

"It's an honor and pleasure to work with Alessandra, as she guides, supports and navigates you seamlessly through the purchase process. Her knowledge and connections allow for many possibilities to the benefit of her client. My co-op purchase in NYC, while I work a job between Germany and New York, was as seamless as I could've ever hoped, especially as a first time co-op owner. I couldn't recommend Alessandra more!" - Felicia I.

"As a first time buyer in NYC, I can't imagine having gone through this process with anyone other than Alessandra. She is incredibly smart, deeply knowledgeable of so many neighborhoods, and goes above and far beyond for everyone she works with. She is genuinely warm and kind, yet she doggedly advocates for her clients…Most of all, working with Alessandra, we felt seen and heard. She listened to our priorities, but also opened our eyes to places we hadn't previously considered, which ultimately led us to the perfect home for us." - Madeline C. & Joshua B.

"Alessandra has been our guardian angel throughout an exceptionally tedious process. She made us feel at ease from Day 1, and held our hand throughout the entire roller coaster ride of purchasing our first home. Alessandra is the type of person you want on your team: she's a good listener, a fierce negotiator, and available at all times. She makes you feel like you're her only client when you know for a fact that's not the case. We are eternally grateful for her support, expertise, and friendship, and can't recommend her highly enough. - Noelia & Burke

"Alessandra was a reassuring presence throughout the purchase of our co-op. We were first-time buyers in the New York City market and her knowledge of the process and guidance was very valuable. She was extremely patient in navigating us through several bids and gave wonderful advice to help make our final decision. We trusted Alessandra and felt she always had our best interests at heart." - Holly B. & Christian D., buyers
