Before coming to Elegran, Ali worked with Fortune 500 companies handling corporate events for a destination management company located in the heart of Times Square. She learned the ins and outs of New York City as she made connections and built relationships with not only clients, but venues, restaurants, theaters, and hotels, spanning from Harlem to Battery Park City, and over the bridge to Brooklyn and Long Island City. Ali brings this same attention to detail and focus on client needs to New York’s fast-paced real estate industry.

Ali is a native Texan and grew up working in her family’s real estate firm. She fell in love with NYC while taking summer classes at The Fashion Institute of Technology in high school, and returned to the city during college as an intern for a fashion designer. Ali graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and had the opportunity to study abroad in Paris.

Outside of real estate, she is an avid fan of both the San Antonio Spurs and Texas Longhorns, enjoys playing all intramural sports, loves theatre, and bakes at any chance she gets.

I couldn't have had a better experience with Ali! I was connected with her after reaching out to a few buildings in NYC and she helped us find and navigate our first apartment rental in the city. We started our search with Ali over the summer when we were just simply trying to get a lay of the land, and then in January when we were ready to move in, we reconnected and found our new apartment within a week. We are absolutely thrilled – I cannot recommend Ali highly enough!
Ali was patient, highly knowledgeable about the city, New York real estate, and the ins-and-outs of renting (it's a very complicated process that she made very easy!) She was incredibly flexible and accommodating in scheduling viewings and generous in giving detailed feedback and notes after each. She took the time to read through our lease and contracts, helped us set realistic expectations throughout the process, and basically guided us every step of the way. My boyfriend and I felt tremendously grateful for her guidance.
She was professional and responded quickly whether by email or text. Also important to us was the fact that she put absolutely no pressure on us to choose a rental. Moreover, she is highly attentive to detail, and provided information in an even-handed, non-judgmental, manner, and was unfazed by several course-changes in what we were looking for.
Bottom line – I can’t imagine having a more positive experience and recommend her without reservation to anyone looking to rent in this stressful market. Thanks Ali! - Olivia C.

Ali P. was so great to work with!! She listened to our needs, produced great options/results, and did it all with a smile and great attitude! She does all the homework that makes apartment hunting difficult and exhausting. I would highly recommend working with her, as you will be very satisfied! I have zero complaints on working with her or Elegran Real Estate. - Tatiana B.

Working with Ali was an absolute pleasure. From the outset, she was responsive to all of our requests, understood our must-haves, and used her experience to place us in a wonderful apartment. Following our move in, Ali continued her attentiveness by sending a welcome note, and continuing to work on our behalf to make sure that any matters needing attention from the building management were addressed. While we have no plans to move, I know for certain that we will be contacting Ali when we're ready to do so. - Ian C.

Apartment hunting has never been easier thanks to Ali! From the very beginning of getting to know my wants and needs to signing the lease and getting my keys, Ali was an incredible person to work with every step of the way. Her professionalism, genuine desire to find something I'd be happy with, and southern charm made the entire experience easy and stress free. Thanks to Ali I found an amazing apartment that I am very happy to call my new home. If I'm ever in the market again, Ali is the first person I will turn to for help. - Brett B.

Ali Petlin is a gem! Apartment hunting is a stressful and emotional task, and Ali understands that. She truly cares about your wants and needs. The client's comfort and happiness are her priorities throughout the entire process - from initial conversations to putting your new keys in the door. We found the perfect place and Ali worked diligently to make it a reality. She was always available for questions and concerns, made sure to keep us informed on every movement, and accompanied every step of the way. We are so happy with our new home and know we couldn't have done it without her. - Molly C. & Dr. Hunter S.

I had an amazing experience with Elegran when I moved this past February. I've been in NYC for 8 years and have worked with about a dozen real estate agents in that time for various reasons. When looking for a new apartment this time though my roommate got in touch with Ali at Elegran somehow. I had not heard of them and was skeptical but Ali was simply the best I've seen. She was incredibly punctual (a rarity in NYC real estate agents), she was informed, friendly and what struck me the most was her genuine interest in finding us something we would like rather than just trying to sell us something for the sake of making the sale (also a rarity in NYC real estate agents.) She was also super patient with us. We had her show us quite a few apartments before we found the one we ended up moving into and once we decided to move in we had a few difficulties (on our end) getting a lease signed. Ali was great through the entire experience and we're convinced she did some pushing on her end to help us get into the apartment we fell so in love with. If the rest of the staff at Elegran is anything like Ali then this company is as top notch as they come. I will definitely be reaching back out to Ali and Elegran the next time I'm in the market for an apartment and will be recommending them to all my friends. - Liam W.
