Alaina is known for her enthusiasm, work ethic, and ability to create a positive buying and selling experience for her clients who often become friends. Alaina moved to Austin from New York City where she represented a sports video network start-up. After a long stint in media and marketing, Alaina pursued her dream of working in residential real estate and never looked back. She’s been mentored by some of the most successful agents in the business, including one of Austin’s top luxury agents, Laura Gottesman, Broker/Owner of Gottesman Residential Real Estate – one of the most prestigious brands in real estate. Alaina’s hustle and networking abilities have helped her advance quickly in a hyper-competitive market.
Having relocated herself, Alaina enjoys helping Austin newcomers navigate a challenging real estate market. She finds satisfaction in giving her clients a leg up on the competition by providing them pre-market opportunities.
Alaina resides in the Westlake area and her experience as a former New York City resident gives her a deep appreciation for city living. She is one of four Gottesman Residential agents chosen to sell the 62 remaining condominiums at 70 Rainey, the first luxury high rise to come to the historic Rainey Street District. Despite the pandemic and multiple setbacks, the team successfully closed out the project in 2021.
Alaina leverages her media and entertainment background in her real estate career as a local and national television host. Alaina has been a regularly featured host on Spectrum News Austin and was recently chosen to host “The American Dream”, a National Television Show highlighting real estate and lifestyle. The show averages 6 to 10 million collective views each month on various cable networks including CNBC as well as streaming on Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Roku, etc.
When she’s not helping clients, Alaina enjoys exercise, travel, and surfing on Lake Austin. Alaina is proud to support the BLESS Foundation, Kids Outdoor Zone, and LifeFamily Church where she often sings on the worship team.
Alaina helped me purchase my first home and I honestly can’t think of ways the process or the support she provided could have been better. Alaina took the care to explain and educate me as a first time buyer and was extremely prepared with options to help me in my search for the perfect home . At no point did I ever feel pushed in a particular direction - she truly had my best interest in mind . Definitely would use her on my next home and you should too!
Alaina is a great agent who truly knows the Westlake area. She is an incredible realtor and always goes the extra mile. We highly recommend her!
