Hi, I’m Althea Wilson-Berkowitz. I’m a real estate sales agent representing buyers and sellers, and primarily work in the neighborhoods surrounding Prospect Park—everywhere from DUMBO to Ditmas Park. I specialize in detailed market analysis, negotiation, and pricing to help pinpoint your most strategic bidding or listing prices. My team and I advocate for you and coordinate everything throughout the entire sales process, bringing you top-notch bankers, attorneys, stagers, photographers, contractors, home inspectors, and whoever else you might need. I like figuring out creative solutions to challenges, and of the dozens of co-op board applications I've submitted on behalf of clients, I've never had one rejected. I don't take fees from tenants, but if you're looking for a rental, I'll always ask around and see if I can help!
Growing up, I trained seriously as a classical pianist. This helped me become detail-oriented and disciplined, which aren't bad qualities to have in this line of work. I have a professional background in marketing and copywriting, giving me the experience to advertise properties with the language and imagery to generate interest and drive sales. In my spare time, I enjoy watching old Italian movies, baking cakes, petting my two Bombay cats (Harriet and Winston), biking around Prospect Park, and buying antique furniture.
Education: B.A. in Comparative and Italian Literature from Smith College Master's in Marketing and Communications from Bocconi University in Milan
Althea couldn’t have been more helpful, she showed me loads of great apartment options that suited my needs, and made the daunting process of first-time-buying (especially as I wasn’t familiar with NY real estate) a breeze.Max S.
Althea is a wonderful real estate agent! Reliable, prompt, thorough, friendly. My fiancé and I absolutely love our 1 BR in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and we could not have gotten it without Althea. Once we let her know our budget and criteria, she found the PERFECT place for us within a few hours. Beautiful building with a courtyard, spacious apt, all-new appliances (including dishwasher), laundry in the basement, a fantastic Super, and easy access to 4 subway lines. All for a VERY reasonable rent price. We've been living in our place for more than a year now and we are still thrilled with it.Lucy R.
Althea was amazing to work with. As a first time home-buyer, she helped me navigate NYC’s complex buying process and worked with me from start to finish. She went out of her way to be helpful — attending listings with me, doing comps, navigating the paperwork, putting me in touch with relevant experts (ie for home inspection), helping find furniture (!), negotiating, the list goes on.. from start to finish and even after, she’s been incredibly helpful and it was great working with her. She was also very flexible and responsive to some constraints I had on my side, as well as very knowledgeable about the area.Aditi R.
