About Irina Balueva
Irina is from a small town in northern Russia. It is somewhere on the other side of the world, about as far away from New York City as one could imagine. But it is this upbringing that has driven her success as a real estate agent on one of the best teams in the country. "Growing up in a small town, you learn to appreciate what you have," Irina says. "Things are not handed to you on a silver platter. You learn the ins and outs of hard work by example and personal practice."
Shortly after graduating from school Irina moved to Saint-Petersburg. It was there that she did her dissertation project on financial cycles and their impact on the real estate market, and it was her research for this work that sparked an interest in the industry itself. Now, as a real estate agent, her BBA in Statistics and Econometrics and her master’s degree in Risk Management are invaluable assets in analyzing trends and identifying prime investment opportunities. She has built a substantial list of clients covering everything from resales and relocations to foreign investments and new developments. Her clients note how attuned she is to their needs, and they trust her because of her blend of market knowledge and work ethic.
In her free time, Irina loves nothing more than exploring everything the city has to offer. She is particularly obsessed with the unique history that lives in each building. “When you're in a city whose history dates back to the 1600s, every day is an opportunity to discover another mind-blowing piece of historical trivia,” Irina says. “There is something special about New York City. The diversity. The energy. The architecture! These stunning buildings—from Flatiron to the World Trade—make you fall in love with the city over and over again.”
