“I give personalized attention to all my clients and negotiations—as well as the complete discretion that this unique market requires.
I'm honest, upfront, and direct. I remain dedicated to my customers throughout their sale or purchase.”
Born and raised in Manhattan, Alison Black has over 25 years of experience in residential sales. Her business has been built on referrals and repeat clients dating back to when she began in the 90’s.
With over a billion in sales, the numbers reflect her dedication to clients and expert knowledge of properties, along with the changing markets and the ability to give clients specific information as well as accurate real-time market-analyzed data.
In the last decade, she has expanded her portfolio to include New Developments and has sold with record pricing some of Manhattan’s most successful and respected development projects, uptown and downtown. This experience in New Development projects has expanded Alison's competence to the top level in real estate and marketing.
Alison works tirelessly on her clients' behalf, all the while listening to their wants and needs. She offers honest advice to achieve the best outcome in every transaction and to ensure that the home buying or selling process is productive and as stress-free as possible in the changing markets.
Besides her extensive market knowledge and the ability to sell some of the most expansive and prestigious proprieties in Manhattan, Alison’s success stems from her intimate understanding of NYC, discretion for all clients, and thoughtful negotiations.
Although she works regularly with celebrities and high-net-worth individual clients, to Alison everyone is a VIP, and she sees her job more as a service to help people whether it is buying their dream home or selling an important asset.
The investigative and negotiating tools she honed when working for 60 Minutes, Paris, and then as a Producer in NYC for Canal+, RTL and @radical.media, Alison utilizes to help find the buyer/seller match as well as solutions to complicated issues that arise when tensions are high.
She also has extensive experience in co-op board package preparation as well as applications for luxury condos and new developments.
Alison grew up in Manhattan and attended the Spence School, Miss Porter’s School, SYA, Franklin University, La Sorbonne, and American University in Paris. She lives on the Upper East Side with her husband and when possible, is at her home in Wainscott for ocean swims or visiting her in-laws and friends in Italy for a delicious meal.
