Do you ever feel that buying or selling your home carries the most emotional baggage than any other financial investments you’ve made?

Alrence Trinona believes that real estate is more than just a business or financial decision, but rather a life changing choice that can determine the future of you and your family. It is complicated and can get stressful at times. However, she is here to help you streamline the process making it easier for you to reach your goals.

Alrence understands the difficulties of finding the perfect agent. She experienced it firsthand moving to New York City. After meeting up with several agents, she was not satisfied with how they provided her service and knew that she could provide a better experience. Who would have thought that years down the road it would lead her to the business? Before joining real estate, she worked with an International Airline Company and prominent luxury hotel chains both in Singapore and in the U.S. where she was trained to provide clients of different cultures with unparalleled customer service. She listened and made sure to look out for her clients and put their best interest in mind over anything else. This heartfelt drive has led to numerous industry awards, including being recognized with the Honesty and Best Sales Award by Concorde Hotel Singapore and the Grazie Award by Marina Bay Sands Singapore, given to outstanding members to celebrate her success in providing magnificent experience for hotel guests. She was also mentioned numerous times in TripAdvisor for providing exceptional value and exceeding customer’s expectations.

A native from Manila, Philippines, Alrence has always been a hard worker. From a young age, she had to overcome constant hardships to get where she is now. Due to her perseverance, she obtained a full scholarship to the University of Santo Tomas, one of the most prestigious universities in the Philippines. She graduated top of the class as Cum Laude and has been in the hospitality industry since then. In her words, “Growing up in a community where we don’t have a lot and faced with different problems everyday has molded me to become a creative problem solver and a person who sees opportunity in every diversity. I always take things one step at a time and I always find happiness even in the smallest things.”

Today, Alrence currently resides in New York City, a place close to her heart and now calls her new home as she continues to pursue her ever evolving American Dream. As a proud member of REBNY, she is determined to share this dream with her clients and help them find their own sense of belonging and a place to call their “home” in one of the greatest cities in the world.

An advocate of anything travel and food related, Alrence spends her free time reading, cooking, attending spin classes and exploring different restaurants and attractions in the city with family and friends. She has been in a number of countries in Asia and visited most of the states in the US.

“Looking for an apartment in NYC is extremely stressful and as a newbie to the city, I had many questions about the process. I doubted if I would ever find something that suited me. Luckily, I was referred to Alrence and it was the best thing that happened to me. Alrence is patient and professional, and she took the time to understand me as well as my needs. In short, a dream to work with.

She also made the entire house-hunting process less intimidating and was there at every step of the way for me – from apartment-hunting and lease-signing to ensuring I was okay after moving in. I am so happy to have had the opportunity to work with her and I will definitely work with her again in the future when I am looking for a new place.” – Jaslin L.

“I was moving to NYC right out of college for my first job here and Alrence has helped me find just the right apartment for my needs. I highly recommend asking Alrence for help finding an apartment here or with any real estate needs. She will listen to you and find the best places that match your needs. When she told me, ‘I am sure you will like the places we will see,’ she wasn't joking. All the places I saw with her were amazing, and one of them felt like the right fit for me (side note: I saw over 20 places with other people too). Not only will she help you find that place, she will help you go through the process of applying and signing a lease and make everything easy for you. Even after signing my lease she made sure everything was going smoothly. She also responds to all your messages and addresses all your concerns super-fast. Please use Alrence's help to find your new home!” - Marios H.
“Alrence is absolutely wonderful! From our brief correspondence, she already had an inkling of who I was and what kind of apartment I would like as well. She definitely made my apartment search feel like such a breeze. I took comfort in her vast knowledge of the neighborhood and expertise in the process. She was extremely accommodating to my schedule and the best part is she helped me find and secure my dream apartment. Thank you so very much, Alrence! You are, without a doubt, the best broker in town! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!!” - Ciara M.
“Alrence had great insights into which apartments and parts of town would be most suitable for our daughter. Alrence was charming and delightful through every minute that we were together. She arranged everything efficiently in one great afternoon. We could not be more pleased with the service that Alrence provided and I just wanted to let you know that she is a real star on Halstead’s Team!” - John M.
