New York City native and Realtor Alana McIntosh helps residential and
commercial clients, whether they’re selling a small studio or buying a multimillion-dollar
commercial building. A top producer, she’s been successfully navigating the multifaceted New York City
market for 10 years, and thrives on executing complex deals. Her firsthand
experience as both an investor and licensed property manager, paired with her
industry expertise, make her an ally for her clients, which reflects in her
extensive repeat and referral business.
McIntosh fell into real estate by accident when she struck
up a conversation with the broker who was showing her some apartments in
up-and-coming Brooklyn more than a decade ago. Even in the devastating housing
recession, he was thriving. A discussion about his commission piqued her curiosity
enough that she made a big leap from fashion design to her second satisfying career
as a Realtor.
Since then, she’s worked at Corcoran, Douglas Elliman, and Compass. She made the calculated move
to Keller Williams in June 2019. She was attracted to KW for a number of important reasons: its
powerful brand and pervasive international presence, the tried-and-true models
and systems, the 180,000-associate-strong
network of worldwide colleagues, the entrepreneurial support, and the
More than 90% of her business is word of mouth. McIntosh says the trust she has earned from her clients is directly related to how much purpose and passion she finds in her work. She considers it her honor to be an integral part of her clients’ major life decisions.
“I love what I do! I get to be an important part of
someone’s historical purchase, which is likely their single biggest lifetime purchase.
It’s so gratifying. Without being cliché, I’m an integral part of my clients’ circle of life:
marriage, kids, divorce, death, and all the directions that life takes people. Through
all the ages and stages, I make sure my clients know that we’re in this
together. I have their best interests at heart.”
In a fast-moving city and industry where standing out from
your competition matters, McIntosh is excited about her future with Keller
Williams. The wealth of resources available will help her fine-tune her
processes, grow her well-established
database, embrace new lead generation systems, and secure the crucial
competitive advantage. She adds, “The sky is the limit! The possibilities are endless, and I’m ready to
take my business to the next level.”
