Alan Franco is the founder and President of the Chapin Group. He has been a real estate broker in Manhattan since 1993. Alan has a diverse background. After receiving his Bachelors degree in Hospitality Management from Florida International University in Miami, he continued working for AT&T as an Instructor until he was able to retire with a vested pension at the age of 29. He then pursued a successful career in Hotel Management. He managed four and five star hotels in Miami and New York for several years before doing what he loves to do best and that is Real Estate.

Alan is a caring professional who devotes countless hours to insure that his clients are well taken care of. Alan feels that listening is the most important part of being a successful Real Estate Broker. Listening to the clients needs and desires and not inflicting your own needs in determining how to proceed are crucial. Clients are always made to feel confident that they are in good hands whether they are buying, selling or renting a property. He spent his entire life in service oriented businesses. Managing five star hotel properties for many years has certainly impacted the service that Alan gives to his clients which is never less than 'five star.'

After living in Manhattan for many years, Alan, returned to his native Long Island. He currently resides in Port Washington, NY with his wife Claire who is the Cantor at Community Synagogue. He has three magnificent children Lael 20, Eden 15 and Emory 13.
The Real Estate business is wonderful but Alan's family is the light of his life.
