About Avi


Avi dove into real estate full-time after working on the fast-paced trading floor at Morgan Stanley and has excelled ever since. He won Rookie of the Year in his first year in the business, 2007, was honored as Agent of the Year multiple times, and recently ranked in the top tier of agents at another major brokerage, as well as in the Top 1% nationwide. Avi’s transition to Compass elevated his ability to serve clients with the finest tools, technology, and resources in the industry. However, what has really set him apart is his commitment to providing unparalleled service and 24/7 availability that his clients never forget.

In his tenure, Avi has sold and continues to sell everywhere, from Wall Street to 116th Street, to Brooklyn and Long Island City. He’s done resales as well as new development, including a brand new construction in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Never afraid of hard work, Avi has the tenacity, knowledge, experience and competitive edge to guide any client through the purchase or sale process with confidence and ease. To him, his work is not about “selling,” but more about educating, and providing honest guidance that helps people make the right decisions for their needs and lifestyle.

“I believe that real estate is not defined by the sale. I actively work to establish lasting relationships with my buyers and sellers, am completely hands-on, and offer constant accessibility. Building trust and helping clients understand what the market has to offer establishes a high level of comfort and ultimately leads to a lasting bond.”

Avi grew up in Israel where he served a mandatory three-year term in the Israeli Army. He was offered the opportunity to play professional soccer and received full scholarships to the University of Memphis and the University of Bridgeport, completing his BS in Finance and minor in International Business in just over three years. Avi resides in Columbus Circle. He owns two investment properties and loves sports, yoga, and world travel in his leisure time.

★★★★★
"Avi was very helpful in the sale of our apartment. We chose to use him due to his candid and honest demeanour. He is very knowledgeable about the market and guided us throughout the entire process. Even in a tough market due to Covid, he was able to secure us a solid buyer and made our experience very seamless!" - Deborah G.

★★★★★
"I met Avi through another person in my building. From our first appointment, I instantly knew this was the agent for me. He was clear and straightforward to what needed to be done to sell my apartment, while maintaining a kind and respectful manner during that initial, and subsequent, conversation. His concrete vision and strategy from that first day, along with his obvious commitment to his work, is the reason I was able to sell my apartment in a timely manner and at a favorable price."

★★★★★
"Selling my condo was not an easy process. It was time consuming, took a lot of effort and it was emotionally draining. That’s why I was so lucky to have Avi on my side. He always stayed professional, honest and realistic. He worked harder than any other broker we were competing against. In fact, he was the only broker to have an open house during Thanksgiving weekend which attracted our buyer. That level of commitment is priceless. Thank you, Avi." - Adi

★★★★★
"Avi is a hustler at heart. His passion and dedication to his clients, as well as his knowledge and resources of NY real estate are a given. What sets him apart is his unique ability to translate the client's vision into a reality; he genuinely listens to the client, takes the time to understand what they want, and is able to translate it into finding the perfect property." - Annie

★★★★★
"I was referred to Avi Alkotzer through a close friend almost eight years ago. Immediately impressed with Avi’s command of the Manhattan real estate competitive market I decided to list my Battery Park City Condo with him. After a quick sale with a nice profit after two years, I’ve done multiple transactions over the last five years with Avi (as have my friends). You won’t find a broker more detail-oriented, honest, responsive and completely on top of his game. He’s meticulous in his business approach, an effect communicator and negotiator. He has an eye for staging and will market your property to secure top dollar (trust his pricing advice) and drive great foot traffic ensuring plenty of visibility for the buyers you’re looking for. In both my sales, I had offers well over asking even before our first office showings and he effectively helped me negotiate my buy under asking price. I’ve been completely satisfied with every transaction and could not recommend Avi any higher. Trust me, you’ll find yourself in excellent hands and I recommend him without reservation." - Jim

★★★★★
"When we were introduced to Avi Alkotzer by friends of ours, he had to deal with two real estate novices, and our sometimes volatile 2 year old. Avi was extremely patient with us, and took us to as many listings as he could find that he felt could be our new home. He helped us along with every aspect, and always provided us with advice when we asked for it." - Elizabeth & Steve
