About The Pearl | Arnold Team
The Pearl | Arnold Team was formed when Alex and Nick joined Compass in 2017, but their experience goes back decades. Alex was born to a family of successful New York City real estate brokers and has been working in the industry since his first part-time job at the age of 14. Nick began his real estate career at Corcoran in 2002, after more than 20 years in business management, including 10 years at the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris, France.
In the team's 30 years experience, we have closed more than 400 residential real estate sales, 300+ rentals, 200+ new condo development units and dozens of commercial and investment properties, with combined revenues in excess of $700,000,000.
We employ the most modern, efficient and innovative tools available in the market, ensuring the broadest possible exposure. Our professionalism and experience ensure the best possible results. Whatever your real estate needs, Alex, Nick and their team are ready to help.
"Alex is a phenomenal realtor and I would highly recommend him. He sold our apartment for more money than I thought possible when we first considered selling. He walked us through every stage of the process and made himself available to us 24/7. Most importantly, he was ever our advocate and always professional. Alex is extremely professional and a dream to work with!"
Meredith M, Seller
"I'd been struggling to sell my penthouse apartment with another company and as I had already moved back to the UK was eager to get the property matters complete. Alex was fantastic from the start - he provided a list of things which he'd do if he as successful to gain the listing and really went above and beyond. Alex is extremely professional and was a dream to work with.” Sarah F, Seller
“Nick Arnold is an experienced professional and was the perfect person to help find our new home in New York City. At the beginning of our apartment search my husband and I agreed on a budget, but not much else. I dreamt of living on the Upper West side, my husband was set on Chelsea. I wanted pre-war, my husband modern. A chef’s kitchen and second bath were at the top of my list, my husband only cared for natural light and outdoor space. Nick listened to our divergent demands with a smile before he patiently began showing us apartments. Drawing on a near encyclopedic knowledge of neighborhoods and buildings, Nick was able to guide us to an apartment and neighborhood we both love! Once our offer was accepted, Nick stayed involved in the process and helped smooth over several bumps that threatened to derail the deal before closing. I would strongly recommend Nick Arnold to anyone buying or selling a home in New York City.” Rob M, buyer
“This team is fantastic. I used many real estate agents to rent my apartments, but now, almost all of my business goes to Pearl and Arnold. Andrew is great about bringing only qualified tenants and my turnover and vacancy rates are lower than ever.” Dennis, landlord
“I had a vision of what I wanted my building to be, but I was missing some elements. Nick, Alex and the team brought me the builder and a great expediter. When we couldn’t get a satisfactory design from our internal team, they referred us to a designer who gave us everything we wanted, and on budget. The sales and marketing went extremely well. We look forward to future projects with them.” Matthew H, developer
