Alison Cortes

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Alison is a born and bred New Yorker having grown up in the “forgotten borough” of Staten Island. She spent her youth exploring Manhattan and its coffee shops, “hole in the wall” restaurants and vintage stores. She left NYC to study Latin American & Caribbean Studies at Binghamton University in upstate New York. During college, her penchant for exploration led her to study abroad in Puerto Rico and Spain at La Universidad de Salamanca & La Universidad de Sevilla. She used her free time to travel Europe extensively, enjoying different people, cultures, foods and customs. After graduation, Alison returned home to NYC to continue her education at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, studying Interior Design and Fashion. Alison has worked in NYC as a design consultant at custom home furnishings showrooms and brings her "eye" for interior design and love of exploration to Cooper & Cooper and NYC real estate.


Alison has been extremely helpful and patient. Although my limited budget made things more complicated, she definitely made the apartment search process less stressful. Alison's professionalism and her knowledge of the city were very impressive, and she has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I would recommend Alison and Cooper & Cooper to anyone looking for apartments in New York City.

I moved internationally from Vancouver to New York City and I couldn't have found my dream apartment if it wasn't for Cooper & Cooper... I worked with Alison Cortes. She was wonderful. She called me while I was still in Canada to figure out my expectations and even suggested ways to optimize my initial apartment search. Like many of Cooper & Cooper customers I found an amazing apartment in 2 days! I am sitting in my awesome Upper East Side apartment as I write this... Alison was kind and had a cheerful attitude the entire time. You will not be disappointed!

I appreciated Alison's patience and overall professionalism. She was a wonderful resource and displayed exemplary service. In my eyes, agents are trusted advisors. The basic pillars of trust are built on core fundamentals – charisma, likability, and perceived trust level. They are such influential factors in the customer making a decision. Alison displayed that and then some.
