Alina Aliyar

Personally, I have had the pleasure of buying and selling (and packing up) four of my own homes in three different states in under fifteen years. Buying & selling a home can be a stressful & anxiety provoking process, but the financial and emotional rewards are plentiful. My goal is to make you sure that you feel empowered, respected, and well informed as you make these decisions. As a French trained chef, I love to nerd out on kitchen layouts and consider the best places for herb & vegetable gardens. As a parent of two, I like to think about practicality, sustainability, and durability. Outside of real estate, I love live performance, gardening, and dad jokes.
