As a licensed real estate professional at Corcoran, Alicia Corpening draws inspiration from her life and earlier career in fashion to help clients find a home that reflects their style and energy.
Alicia grew up in a military family that traveled all over the country and the world. Recognizing the importance of feeling at home, in whatever environment or dressing, she leveraged her intuitive ability to identify and shape seemingly small details to make the setting work for all involved. After graduating from Florida A&M University with a degree in graphic communications, Alicia moved to New York to pursue a career as a wardrobe stylist. Building relationships and marrying the trends to the daily needs, she soon began working with major magazines such as Elle, Marie Claire, and Vogue, the fashion bible. She also worked on major ad campaigns for brands like Sephora, Macys, and John Frieda. After five years, running around the city prepping for styling projects, she realized her real love was with the city itself, and transitioned to a career in real estate at Warburg Realty.
