Rachel Aschalew contests with some of New York City’s most sought after, high-end real estate brokers. From Wall Street trader to real estate agent, in just five years she’s built an enviable portfolio of celebrity clients and tastemakers. At just 28 years old, this Ethiopian beauty’s versatility is easily the secret to her fierce reputation and unexpected edge in the industry. Aschalew is partner at the Wall Street based firm NY Casa Group where she garners an array of clients as the likes of world renowned pop star Kylie Minogue, celebrity florist Jeff Leatham and plus size supermodel Ashley Graham. Latham hired her to find the perfect location for his New York City based reality TV show on TLC and she outperformed his expectations — closing the entire deal while he was in France. Attracting new clients every day, Aschalew is taking charge of the Dumbo and Brooklyn Heights luxury real estate markets and she has no plans to slow down. She says compared to the stress of the trading floor, “real estate isn’t stress, it’s fun. You can’t tell me my life isn’t exciting! I’m a tour guide in my favorite city and I meet different people every day. Everyone has an interesting story and a good broker listens.” A real estate socialite, Rachel Aschalew’s career thrives on personal connections that build unbreakable trust and relationships with her clients. This, not money or sales is what ignites her passion in real estate and keeps her escalating past the ranks of veteran agents in the game.
