Alex was born and raised on the outskirts of Dallas in nearby Kaufman County. As a kid, he remembers “going into the city” on weekends and school field trips. His interest in real estate was sparked from a young age growing up in the home building industry. His father worked as a sub-contractor for Centex Homes and his Mom worked and still works as a private lender. He spent every summer “on the job” with his Dad observing homes being built from start to finish. Alex’s summer “playground” was an unfinished subdivision and his “toys” consisted of plywood, 2×4’s, insulation, roofing, compressors and home building tools. He’d also tag along every weekend touring homes for sale with his Mom.
He attended the University of North Texas and received a degree in Radio, Television and Film Communications. After graduating, Alex entered the advertising sales industry as the National Sales Assistant for CBS Television Stations. There he familiarized himself with contracts, overcoming objection, building relationships and most importantly how to sell “the intangible.”
In 2008, he moved to Los Angeles and worked in multiple industries proving to be a chameleon. Alex’s creative skills were utilized as a member of the song production team, The Go Gettas, signed to Riptide Music Group. His vocals, melodies and lyrics have been heard on E!, TV Land, Oxygen, SpikeTV, VH1 and MTV. Aside from television, he has placed songs with recording artists overseas in Japan and in the UK. The relationships he made in music have allowed him to work and be seen in music videos featuring Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert, Jojo, MetroStation and the cast of 2009’s “Fame.”
Alex’s sales abilities were tested and strengthened when he added Property Management to his resume and joined the Apartment Industry. Los Angeles provides a clientele that is ultra high-end, requiring attention and a strong presence. As a leasing professional in the apartment industry, Alex was able to turn the toughest prospect into his best friend. People fell in love with his southern charm, approachable demeanor and the wide scope of knowledge he offers.
Seven years later, Alex and his fiancé decided to call Dallas home. Alex immediately acquired his real estate license, increased his knowledge of the DFW market and closed more than 45 leases and home sales in his first year practicing. Alex brings with him a well-rounded knowledge of the DFW area, a home builders eye, a network of vendors needed in the home sales process, people skills, creative marketing ideas and the ability to make you laugh. There’s no reason the home selling or home buying process shouldn’t be fun! His motto is, “Let’s have a blast while we find you your dream home!”
