Having grown up in Westchester, New York as the daughter of a local builder, I was intrigued by the Real Estate market at a very young age. Before embarking on a career in Real Estate sales, I obtained a Law Degree and honed my negotiating skills as an insurance defense litigator in White Plains. I later joined my husband's Real Estate Law firm in Pleasantville, as an Associate Attorney. The experience of working in Real Estate Law has helped me to anticipate and avoid potential pitfalls in order to navigate clients smoothly through purchases and sales. I believe in listening to my clients' individual needs, and strive to make their experience both pleasant and positive.

Alaina Bainlardi was the agent who assisted us in our recent home sale. From the start, she was professional, organized, but most of all, realistic. She knows the market and helped us determine what a fair price for our home would be, and one that would ensure us a timely sale. Having had an experience previously with a realtor that overpriced our home which then languished, this was very important to us. She also spent time helping us develop a punch list of things that would make our home more attractive with little cost to us and helped us steer clear of others that would not be compensated with the sale.
As there were some complicated aspects involved with our home, she tirelessly researched legal documents and spent time with the town's building engineer on our behalf. She also helped manage our concerns expertly. Her background in law is an asset as is her attention to detail. She was always available to us, either by phone, email, or in person.
I would not hesitate to recommend Alaina for a home purchase or home sale. She cares about her clients and treats them as she would a friend.
Alaina was recommended to us by a good friend who led the recommendation with, 'You're gonna love her!' That friend could not have been more right. Alaina has a keen knowledge of the real estate market which was helpful as first time homeowners. In addition to understanding the landscape, Alaina truly is the ultimate professional: calm, genuine, and engaged in meeting the needs of her clients' home wish list. My husband and I would undoubtedly recommend Alaina to anyone who is looking for their new home.
My husband and I could not be happier that we chose Alaina to sell our house - and to help us find another. Our first house was a difficult sell in many ways and I truly doubt we could have sold it without her wise and frank advice and help. Alaina also made it so obvious throughout the process that she truly cared about our family and our needs. Moving was stressful but Alaina's kindness and professionalism made it a thousand times better. Thank you, thank you, thank you Alaina - if we ever decide to move again we will call you right away!
Very professional, personable, diligent and dependable. We had to sell our vacant house while we lived more than 1000 miles away. She took care of our house like it was her own. Once in the late evening hours, it was raining, and our garage door had some trouble, she went with her husband to close the garage door in heavy rain. She brought more people to see our house than the previous two realtors put together! Helped even after our house was placed on rent with sending us up to date information on the market. In our book, she is #1.
Alaina was an absolute pleasure to work with during the sale of our old home and purchase of our new home. Her dedication was seen throughout the entire process and her kind and calm nature was extremely helpful in what can be a stressful time for a family. Her knowledge of the local market was evident. I would absolutely recommend Alaina to anyone!
Alaina Bainlardi handled the sale of my home with professionalism, knowledge, and honesty. She was constantly in contact with me with updates and information. I would gladly recommend her to both buyers and sellers.
When we were searching for houses in upper Westchester, Alaina came highly recommended. She was extremely familiar with the market and when we found the house perfect for our family, she guided us in the negotiations so it fit our budget. After several years, we again used her services to sell the same house. Her recommendations in prepping the house for display were invaluable. We closed well over asking price, quickly after listing. I look forward to working with her again, soon.
We used Alaina when purchasing our first home in 2010. And then again when selling our condo and purchasing a single family home in 2017. She’s extremely easy to talk to and can help guide you through the real estate process stress free. Even though both homes ended up being out of her “territory”, she was still able to ask the right questions and help negotiate. She’s thorough in learning about the current market and coming up with fair prices to negotiate, while providing sound advice/suggestions. She’s a great person, professional and fun to work with - would suggest her in a heart beat!
