ABOUT ME

Alexandra Foucard has lived in New York City for over twenty years; fifteen of those years have been in Brooklyn. Her diverse experiences include working as a Broadway and film actor. 

Alexandra’s passion for New York is undeniable. “Living in New York is an opportunity to experience the best. People who are at the top of their professions and love what they do,” she explains. “I want my clients to feel that I am bringing my excellence to each transaction. I expect that of myself as well. The only way I know to do that is to balance the rigor of the market and find the zen in each moment - especially when it comes to real estate.” Ms. Foucard considers herself a citizen of the world. Originally from Haiti, she’s lived in Miami, DC, Maryland - and now Brooklyn. 

On a free day you can find Alexandra… taking a yoga class, eating at her favorite vegan restaurant and spending time with her family in Provincetown, MA. 


Causes she cares about: Haitian Timoun Foundation. The Trevor Project. 

Alexandra is a fluent speaker of English, French and Haitian Creole.
