Alexis Carpinello grew up in Bethlehem, New York and Lake St. Catherine, Vermont - small towns with close-knit communities. It was the belief in people taking care of people and a diverse professional background that brought her to a career in real estate. After teaching performing arts, earning a BFA in Acting from Emerson College in Boston, and studying screenwriting at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film, & Television, Alexis went on to work in film, restaurants, fashion, and editorial. Most recently, she held the position of Senior Editor for a New York City lifestyle and restaurant review publisher.
Coming from a career in arts and hospitality, Alexis translates her love of people into individualized quests for homes that tell their stories. As a paralegal for Boies Schiller Flexner LLP, she learned how ethics and honesty were and should be the foundational qualities of any business relationship, and she looks forward to earning the trust of her clients. As a detail-oriented agent, she caters to peoples’ specific needs while committing herself to being both an advisor and an ally. She puts loyalty first, and is proud to have the opportunity to turn potentially stressful moments into milestones. Alexis resides in DUMBO, Brooklyn, and loves spending her spare time running through the city’s different neighborhoods, producing film, and traveling.
I got to know Alexis from Zillow while attempting to view [a] few apartments of my interest. Unlike others she never discouraged me...She encouraged me with my search and accompanied [me] patiently throughout the COVID pandemic 2020 year. Fortunately we were able to find an even larger apartment in my desired area than I would dream to find and thanks to Alexis we went in contract in [a] few days...With the team Alexis gathered around me (attorney and different lenders), I felt very strong support throughout the whole process and Alexis had my back at every point; I never felt alone as an unexperienced first time buyer. With every obstacle on the way Alexis had a plan and resolution and thankfully we were able to close smoothly; Me and my daughters are forever grateful to her to be able to have [this] sweet abode in historic Brooklyn. ...I want to make sure she has my highest unreserved recommendations for anyone who is in need of a real estate professional who will provide [the] full package of care.

My wife and I spent quite a bit of time with Alexis while buying our new condo in Brooklyn. I have purchased/sold homes previously, however, Alexis was definitely a step above the rest. We saw about 30-35 units, Alexis was knowledgeable about building materials, neighborhoods, trends, and more. Her gut feelings proved correct when determining which units would go above ask and which would not, and which units we could expect a bidding war on. She helped reach out to other brokers and buildings to get house rules, financial statements, renovation procedures, and more. She went the extra mile every time, and we couldn't be happier Alexis helped us find our home. I HIGHLY recommend her!

We feel so lucky to have found Alexis who helped us successfully purchase our first New York City apartment. She is kind, extremely knowledgeable, professional and went above and beyond to make sure every detail of the buying process was thoroughly covered and a solution found for every bump in the road (including negotiating a sale as the pandemic was preventing in-person negotiations). We are still in contact with her and she is generous enough to share her knowledge while we renovate the apartment we purchased. She really was a true joy to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend her.

Alexis was phenomenal to work with, especially during a time when seeing apartments in person is not a given. I felt she understood what I was looking for in an apartment rental, and was in my corner the entire process in terms of negotiations, etc. Alexis was also amazingly organized and communicative - I knew I could count on her to deliver updates, and answer any/all questions I had throughout the process (which were a lot!). Would 100% recommend working with Alexis.

Alexis is the best! I found Alexis totally by chance. I was searching for apartments in the summer of 2019, aiming for a September move-in. I’d never lived in Manhattan before, and felt overwhelmed by the prospect of finding a place. I was scrolling through apartments online when I decided to email one of the brokers. Boy, did I get lucky when that broker happened to be Alexis. We exchanged emails, she picked a few apartments based on our conversation, and we then spent an afternoon together looking at each of them. She made the process feel easy, stress-free, and enjoyable. By the end of the day, I knew where I’d be living come September. Alexis is the sweetest, most sincere, knowledgeable person I could’ve asked for as I went through the process. I’m so happy I found her, and I’d highly recommend her to anyone!

I highly recommend Alexis. She helped us buy our new home in New York. She has so much attention to detail and is extremely thorough. We felt like we were in great, loyal hands the entire time.

BROOKLYN VS MANHATTAN - THE DIFFERENCE
January 27, 2021
During this pandemic, one of the biggest mistakes I’ve noticed clients making is the generalization of the pandemic’s “impact on NYC real estate.” Most often, the market reports and updates that reach consumers are reflective of Manhattan, not the other boroughs.
