Alex has been thinking, living, and breathing real estate since his high school years in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It began with part-time jobs in the residential renovation and construction business. He learned much about residential real estate construction during his early college years, working on renovation projects for single-family homes to mid-rise apartment buildings.
While attending the University of Pittsburgh, he secured internships over two summers with CBRE, a commercial real estate firm in midtown Manhattan. During that time, he fell in love with New York City, the energy on the streets, and the people who call the city home.
Upon graduation, Alex moved to New York City and began his career at CBRE, working closely with office tenants and proudly serving as a member of an incredible office-leasing team that successfully leased over five million square feet in the Hudson Yards development.
Alex later joined real estate technology startup Uppercase, a one-stop-shop for helping e-commerce brands to both identify retail spaces and launch their brick-and-mortar locations from the ground up. He headed the U.S. operations, managing all real estate transactions targeting highly trafficked markets including New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, Chicago, Seattle, and Austin.
In early 2020, Alex’s experience and interest in anything involving real estate led him to the residential sector, enabling him to do what he does best: meeting people, building relationships, learning about clients and their needs, and working hard to help them achieve their goals—all on a more personal, family level. He knew that he had found his true calling after seeing the happiness on the face of his first client after she had purchased her dream home.
Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or a developer, Alex’s primary objective is to understand your requirements so that he can secure the perfect result for you. His experience enables him to ask the right questions and, more importantly, to listen to your answers. He has an extensive network of landlords, developers, and real estate partners who can help to locate a hidden gem or even an off-market opportunity. Nothing slips through the cracks.
Alex is a resident of the Upper East Side in Manhattan. When time permits, he may be found exploring the many cultural and culinary experiences that New York offers. To balance the culinary experiences, he enjoys hot yoga, weight training, and walking foster dogs in Central Park.
