Keeping it personal best describes Alan Berger's commitment to his clients and buyers. As the industry has ballooned and large sub-teams have developed within the community, Alan has made a conscious decision to maintain a boutique approach to his business allowing for the personal interaction that he deems important with each and every seller or buyer that he works with. Still he has sold hundred's of millions of dollars of Manhattan real estate, and has been an ongoing member of Corcoran's Multi-Million Dollar Circle since joining the company in 1992, as well as consistently ranking in the top 1-2% of NRT's 45,000 brokers nationwide.
"Because home is very important to me," he says, "I don't think of myself as selling real estate but rather matching people with homes. I go above and beyond to find the perfect fit. Whether representing a seller's multi-million dollar property or finding a home for the first time buyer I feel it is a tremendous honor that I take very seriously"
Alan is often thought of as "an exclusive broker" as a result of his tremendous success in marketing seller's properties. "The right price is the key to garnering the highest sale price in the market," he says, "and I try to find that price by analyzing past sales with the current market trends, buyer base, and competition and then tailor the marketing plan to fit. I also enjoy a place of trust and respect within the brokerage community which helps the transaction go smoothly."
Alan moved to New York in 1980 and has called the Upper Westside home since 1983. A large portion of Alan's business has been on the Upper Westside with a focus on Riverside Drive. Early in his career he wrote and distributed his "Riverside Drive Market Availability Report", and as a result did so much business that Barbara Corcoran crowned him the "King of Riverside Drive." In 1994 he sold his first townhouse, which opened doors to another facet of New York living. His fascination led to his second specialty, which culminated in his becoming the Director of Townhouses in Corcoran's Westside office.
In 2010 Alan officially launched "Alan Berger's 5% Promise" in which he contributes 5% of his gross commission from each sale to a New York City based charity. The list consists of charities that provide food, shelter, and public enjoyment for New Yorkers. The customer or client then chooses from the list to determine where the money goes.
