study, temporarily work, or seeking in-between housing, primarily in Midtown, Downtown
Manhattan and Long Island City, Queens; though Alba will work wherever her clients' take
her. Outside of New York, she has handled many international transactions, selling
properties in Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Guatemala, and supervising developments that
include a bed and breakfast in San Jose and hotel in Granada.
Born and raised in San Jose, Costa Rica, Alba graduated from Universidad de Costa Rica

with the Costa Rican Investment Board, where she helped investors to establish business
operations in Costa Rica, with Intel, Abbott and other big names among them.
Alba is hardworking, honest, and provides a great service to the public. She has perfected
her interpersonal and organizational skills, and proven herself to be very composed and
professional in fast-paced, high-volume environments. Fluent in English and Spanish, Alba
lives in the city and owns rental houses in Daytona Beach, FL and Costa Rica. Her favorite hobbies are dancing and listening to good music.
