I am originally from Santa Barbara, CA, and have been fortunate enough to live in Southern California my whole life. After graduating from Loyola Marymount University, I fell in love with the Westside of LA and have now called the area home for 12 years.
I specialize in the areas that make up the increasingly popular Silicon Beach from Santa Monica to Redondo Beach. I enjoy educating my clients through my expertise on the neighborhoods and markets on the Westside so that they can make the best decision possible when it comes to their home.
My philosophy is simple: go above and beyond to help my clients reach their goals so they are exited refer me to their friends and family. In my free time I enjoy surfing, hiking, and playing team sports with friends.
I was in the market to buy a home and - considering the market - I wanted to find a great deal. Alex took the time to scour the market and tirelessly searched out every potential bargain home. Thanks to his efforts, I found the home and the deal I was looking for. Alex was able to quickly and effectively negotiate a deal to get me the best price and terms possible. I couldn’t be happier with my new home and Alex’s service. He is my go-to guy for all things real estate.
I was looking for something very specific: a condo in Ocean Park close to the beach with a view at a great price. Alex found the perfect place for me but there was a problem: a seller who was extremely difficult to work with. Alex took the time to meet with the seller and worked around the clock to find solutions and make sure the deal worked out. I was thrilled with the effort and know how he worked on my behalf. I would recommend him to all my family and friends.
Sold a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $1.25M in Venice, Los Angeles, CA.
It's hard to overstate our gratitude for the expertise, integrity, attentiveness and consistently clear communication Alex brought to every step of our first home sale. He became our listing agent after things didn't work out with our initial agent; and the contrast between the two was stark. We were immediately blown away by his knowledge of the latest trends marketing and particularly his enthusiasm for bringing all those insights to bear on our somewhat challenging house sale during an election year in the midst of the holiday season. But Alex brilliantly navigated the negotiation process and we always felt we were getting the clear and candid advice we needed to make the tough decisions. Most importantly, he anticipated our questions and was always willing to go the extra mile to help us clear the many hurdles that arose throughout the process. Selling a house is stressful under the best of circumstances. But thanks to Alex' smart, steady and skillful guidance, we closed our sale and are thrilled with the results. We cannot recommend Alex highly enough.

Alex puts his clients first. His responsiveness, honesty and knowledge made him the perfect agent to have as my advocate in the home buying process. His focus isn't on how to make a sale, it's to find his clients a home they absolutely love. I can't recommend him more highly.

Buying real estate in Los Angeles is a trying experience, so it's good to be able to work with someone like Alex. He has a wealth of knowledge about a wide array of Los Angeles neighborhoods, and, in particular, the Westside. He also is incredibly responsive -- he usually replied to my (not infrequent) emails within minutes. But, most importantly, he was a calming influence, keeping an even keel as we made offers on multiple properties and went through a difficult escrow. I would not hesitate to recommend him to prospective buyers.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.125M in Sherman Oaks, Sherman Oaks, CA.
Working with Alex to purchase our home was a fantastic experience and we would highly recommend him. As we were relocating to LA from the east coast, we only had two weekend trips to find a home. After our first day looking at properties together, he quickly tuned into our tastes and preferences and helped us make the most of our trips and focus on realistic options. He was very knowledgeable about the market provided excellent and appropriate advice as we considered our options. He was incredibly responsive to our numerous emails, calls and texts. Given our limited time, Alex really went above and beyond to do a lot of leg work that we weren't able to do ourselves. He previewed houses for us and even toured a promising house on face time with my husband. Although we felt pressure to find and buy a house quickly, Alex was patient and reminded us of what we told him was important so that we didn't compromise on the wrong house too soon. We were lucky enough to find the house of our dreams on our second trip and Alex helped us navigate the negotiations to get the house for less than list price. He attended all the inspections on our behalf and remained very hands on throughout the escrow period. Despite a difficult selling agent that at times made my husband and I consider walking away, Alex remained professional and level headed throughout the process and we are so pleased that we chose him to represent us. We are so grateful for all the hard work that Alex put into our purchase and would highly recommend him.

If you're a first time buyer (like me), or a seasoned pro looking to buy or rent on the westside, Alex is THE MAN.
Not only did he help me find my house, he walked me through every step of the process and was beyond patient with my 100s (or 1000s) of questions. He knows the westside market inside and out, is comfortable saying when something is overpriced and really looks out for his clients interests.
We must have seen nearly 100 houses, bid on 5, went in and out of escrow once, and everything else that can happen good or bad in home buying process and he was on the ball all the time, super cool, and i couldn't imagine having gone through the experience with anyone else.
...and now i have my place and I am super happy...and i still ask him questions probably way too often and he still answers....he's about the relationship not the quick sale.

After switching 3 agents, I really liked working with Alex. His knowledgeable, no pressure approach was very well suited for what I was looking for. Alex was very responsive and always available for questions and updates through out the process. He is also soft spoken and has a great personality. I highly recommend him. Manoj
Sold a home in 2014 in Westwood, Los Angeles, CA 90025.
Alex has helped my wife and I with two transactions now: a buy and a sell. In both instances, he helped us make rational decisions and looked out for our best interests. We had several early morning and late night phone calls and he always had a way of reassuring us and helping us think rationally. I would recommend Alex to absolutely anyone- and have already done so to several close friends. Alex is the man.
