As a top real estate broker, Asher Alcobi had plenty of stories to tell (including one about selling an apartment to a hedge fund manager who was arrested a few days later, which led to a legal snag over commissions on the property).

Growing up in the Upper East Side, Alcobi hardly left home, as today his firm focuses mainly on residential sales in that neighborhood. In 1992 he founded brokerage and advisory firm Peter*Ashe, which does most of its business in the Upper East Side.

An Israeli by birth, he visited New York City in 1988 on a one-year sabbatical from the Israeli navy. However, he met his future wife and decided to stay. Alcobi graduated from the City College in New York with a business degree, and began his non-military career in home decoration. He soon found the calling to real estate, and co-founded Peter*Ashe in 1992 with Peter Schwartz. Less than a decade later, he was the sole owner.

Alcobis first big sale was a townhouse on 64th Street in 1995, which he sold for $2.5 million, but in recent years hes had tens of millions a year in listings to his name. Alcobi was named in 2014 as one of The Real Deals top real estate agents for his more than $61 million in listings. Hes also brokered the $13.7 million sale of One Beacon Court, the luxury condominium buildings nestled next to Bloombergs headquarters.

Alcobi tries to stay on the cutting-edge of New York real estate. His firm has focused on Asian investors, trying to nab the influx of Chinese cash flowing into Manhattan, and in 2011 began to focus on East Harlem, saying, its really the only place in New York that has to grow.
