Ann McBride-Alayon

Licensed Real Estate Broker, Owner

I’ll never forget the feeling I experienced the first time I drove down Main Street in Cold Spring. I had stumbled upon our home and just like that, my life shifted from NYC to the Hudson Valley and I’ve never looked back. I started working in real estate in 2012, my years in hospitality and production proved to be great training for this new career direction. Real estate is a very personal endeavor; my passion is working with people. Why work with me? I truly enjoy what I do!

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

From on-the-field social worker to stay-at-home mom to real estate salesperson, the progression feels right. I have always loved working with people and being of service. I discovered my love of real estate and interior design through the purchase and renovation of my first home, located in the heart of Poughkeepsie. While I always found real estate interesting, struggling to find my first home made me realize that I could help others navigate and find their perfect home while providing expert local knowledge.

Associate Real Estate Broker

Guiding clients through the home buying and selling processes is a wonderful responsibility.  I take pride and enjoyment in bringing my best to it, working to ensure my clients get the best advice, information, communication, and support throughout the process.  From the first showing to the closing table, they know I put their needs first and I thrive on the appreciation and referrals that result.  Since 2014, I am loving what I do in the Hudson Valley!

There is nothing like the magical Hudson River Valley light in every season, which remains my favorite of all the reasons we live in Garrison. First as weekenders and full time since 2018, my husband and I have shared our favorite discoveries with friends and clients who have also fallen for the area. I am committed to assisting clients charter a successful course on their journey to list or purchase the perfect residence or weekend retreat in the community that I love. I bring over 20 years experience in sales, specifically working with private clients on lifestyle projects, and nothing is more personal than where you call home.

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

As soon as I moved to Ossining from Brooklyn in 2015, I fell in love with the Hudson River Valley. Not only did I find my forever home, but I wanted to fully engage my community and start a business here. My background owning and operating  a textile design studio in Manhattan provided the perfect foundation for my new career in real estate and interior design. I love guiding my clients through every step of the home buying and selling process. Whether I’m helping you declutter, organize or style your home to sell or helping you find the right home to start a new chapter,  I’m here to listen and to make the process as simple and stress-free as possible.

In 2006, my then fiancé and I were laughed out of a realtor’s office for inquiring about a home search in Cold Spring on our limited budget. The joke was on him, because we found our first home — with a different agent. We started as weekenders, fixing up our old home one project at a time, which turned into years of loving life in the Hudson Valley. Now a realtor myself, I think back to that first experience with amusement; real estate has evolved. In my previous career, I shot and edited corporate materials for a multinational real estate firm, one of the many skills honed as a producer, editor and instructor of design, film and video. Behind the camera, I learned valuable lessons about what sells and who succeeds. As a real estate salesperson, I bring the collaboration, communication and creativity required to offer my clients an exceptional experience.

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

After 12 years of living in Brooklyn, my husband and I were ready for a change, so we headed up the river to Peekskill. I’ve fallen in love with the quieter, slower-paced lifestyle of the Hudson Valley and all that it has to offer, especially the outdoor adventures. It is amazing to live somewhere that has the best perks of a small city, but also a close-knit community that has welcomed my family with open arms. My previous career as a User Experience Designer & Researcher, which focused on translating people’s wants and needs into solutions, has left me well-prepared to transition into real estate. I’ve always been a very empathetic person who loves to help others, and I am really looking forward to creating valuable relationships with buyers and sellers!
