As election season nears, Alexandra Pelosi, the daughter of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, is again making news. The filmmaker who won six Emmy nominations for her documentary “Journeys With George,” chronicling George W. Bush 2000 campaign for the presidency, has sold her Flatiron District apartment at 108 Fifth Avenue for $1.71 million, according to public records filed with the city.

Pelosi, who is married to Dutch journalist Michael Vos, put the two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment on the market with Leslie Modell of Warburg Realty in May 2011. The deal for the unit closed July 31, city records filed yesterday show. The buyers were William and Melissa Gildin; William Gildin is CEO of a company that manufactures lighting products.

Alexandra Pelosi purchased the home in 2006 for $1.43 million, according to public records. The unit, which boasts five terraces, is one of only two apartments on the 19th floor of the boutique condominium.

It was not immediately clear if Pelosi had moved to a new apartment in the city. A search for her name in property records showed no recent transactions. Neither she nor Modell responded to a request for comment.
