Aisha is a determined individual who has grown up in Upstate NY. There is nothing that crosses her path that she won’t resolve. After graduating from college she gained experience in the field of Human Services and began her work in the Hudson Valley. Years later, she ventured to NYC to advance her career path. For her first NYC apartment, Aisha experienced the desire to find a place where she could feel at "home”. She quickly learned about the importance of location and budget in real estate. If you ask her why she chose her first NYC apartment, she will say “the French doors.. I honestly just loved the French doors.” Truthfully though, it was the experience with the real estate agent and landlords that really stuck out in making her final decision.

This experience is part of the foundation of how she helps her team to excel. Aisha’s exceptional customer service skills, commitment to perfection, meticulous attention to detail, and calm nature, help bind teams and clients. She guides her team with strategies in organization, prioritization, and constantly offering advice. She is personable and relatable to clients from her own experiences.
