Modern Spaces, a Queens-based real estate brokerage company, announced this week that Alexander Pereira has joined the firm as the new sales director for The Anable condominiums and founder of the Alexander Pereira Team (APT), with team members Danielle Young and Gala Chan.

Pereira is a seasoned real estate broker and Long Island City expert who spent 10 years at Douglas Elliman. He has sold over $250 million in residential sales during his career.

Modern Spaces is planning to launch The Anable, a distinguished collection of beautifully crafted condominiums, in Long Island City later this summer. Pereira and his team will work on growing the new development roster for Modern Spaces.

“I am excited to join Modern Spaces as I start my own team here,” Pereira said. “It’s no secret that Modern Spaces has the largest market share in Long Island City, an area I specialize in and know well.”

Pereira started his real estate career working with Nancy Packes before joining the top sales producing team at Douglas Elliman, the Bracha Group, in 2010. His expertise and focus is within new developments.

With over 10 years of real estate experience, Pereira was a founding member of Keller Williams NYC, where he sold onsite for luxury new development buildings in coveted Manhattan locations such as The Azure, The Centurion and The CASSA.

Pereira has served as the sales director for QNS44 Condominiums, which made the Forbes Hot Properties list. QNS44 has sold a record of more than 65 percent of the project entirely off-market and outpaced the market expectations.

“Alexander is a true real estate professional with years of dedicated and refined customer service and a strong reputation in New York City’s real estate market,” Modern Spaces Founder and CEO Eric Benaim said.

He was also the sales director for the successful sell-out of Vernon 123 Condominiums and was part of the partnership team that sold out The Greystone LIC Condominiums and The Dutch Condominiums, and has worked in many commercial land deals for developments.

A native of New York City, Pereira has lived in three of the five boroughs, and currently resides in Long Island City. He started his sales career at 17 years old securing millions of dollars in donations for UJA, one of the largest philanthropic companies in New York.

By 20 years old, Pereira established his own cashmere company which he ran successfully for six years. He then went into finance at a company that marketed and sold alternative investment products and negotiated deals with some of the top banks in the United States.

“I look forward to signing on more new developments to work with Modern Spaces to continue to provide excellent service in LIC and beyond,” Pereira said.
