Allison Pennell knows and loves every corner of her city: its people and stories, cultural shifts and incarnations, idiosyncrasies and neighborhoods. She is a lifelong New Yorker, living on the Upper West Side before moving to Park Slope. A graduate of Barnard College, Allison attended Stanford University for a graduate degree in Documentary Filmmaking.

Allison came to Brooklyn nearly 20 years ago with her design/builder husband, where they have invested in renovating and building properties both in Brownstone Brooklyn and Upstate NY. Her adventures in construction and renovation have nurtured a genuine and abiding interest in seeing how other people live and a desire to help them find their perfect property.

She just closed on her first sales listing at above ask and within two open houses. The seller, Adriana Velez:

Allison Pennell did far more than sell my apartment for an excellent price. Her careful attention to detail, good spirits, and vigilance saw us through potentially thorny challenges with ease. My apartment was particularly tricky. I was putting it on the market for the second time, after the first sale fell through with another realtor after an accepted offer of almost $100,000 less than the ultimate selling price.

Allison positioned my property in the best possible light. She worked meticulously to get the apartment ready to show and to find the right asking price: something the market would support but that would be enticing enough to get buyers through the door. Her stewardship brought the price up to an immensely satisfactory point. I was very happy with where we landed. But I also felt like the buyer was getting a fair deal, all things considered."

Allison’s interest in architecture and housing is matched by a broad knowledge of Park Slope and a passion for problem-solving and research. Her people and administrative skills, along with her connections in the design and building communities will lend themselves well to helping you make your own real estate transition.

Whether you are looking to buy, sell or lease your property, Allison is available to help:

  • Evaluate Your Apartment's Potential

  • Share Market Conditions and Personalized Comparables

  • Advise on Increasing Value With Renovation

  • Navigate Co-op Boards

  • Put You in Touch With Relevant Industry Professionals

  • Find Your New Home and Scope Our New Neighborhoods

Allison is a longtime magazine writer — working at Parents and Nick Jr. Magazines and Babble.com — as well as a frequent contributor to the dearly departed local blog, F***ed In Park Slope, and the Park Slope Food Coop’s Linewaiter’s Gazette. Before joining Brown Harris Stevens, Allison also managed rentals and sales marketing for Lake Huntington Summer Community in the Catskills.

Allison was extremely thoughtful and supportive throughout the process of buying our first apartment. She sat down with us at the beginning of our search to help identify what we were looking for, and from there forward, sent us only relevant listings and gave us her honest opinions and feedback. She is very attentive and was always very quick and responsive to our questions and needs. Allison really did her due diligence in the comp search so we felt like we were making an informed offer, allowing us to come in below asking! - Stacey and Markus
