Alex Castex-Porter brings over ten years of real estate experience with the Jeff Dyksterhouse Team, and The Payne/Dyksterhouse Group, where he began his real estate career with his mentors, while attending college. Throughout this time Alex has consistently set record breaking prices in buildings in northern Manhattan.
A born and bred resident of Uptown, living with his family in Washington Heights, Alex is an alumnus of The City College of New York, Beacon High School, P.S. 165/Crossroads Middle School, and trained as a chorister at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
In his free time while both in middle and high school, Alex explored his curiosity for medicine, and film, and became aware that one could use these passions to lift others up. At the New York Presbyterian Medical Center, Alex volunteered for years at both a nursing ward and its pediatric surgical recovery ward. During this time Alex also diligently attended after school at TRUCE, where he began to learn how to write, edit and orchestrate movies as a founding child of the Harlem Children Zone.
Alex brings to each client a well earned, and extensive knowledge of many Washington Heights, Hamilton Heights/West Harlem, Inwood, and Harlem properties, as well as his entire life led on the West Side of Manhattan. Alex’s consistent transactions include numerous apartment sales, purchases, rentals and sublets on behalf of an owner, buyer, or at times he simply is here to answer a question someone may have. He also brings his personal, and shared tales of local history, politics, details about buildings, trees and parks, that are often notable, and shine further light on the neighborhood he grew up in and loves.
When working with a seller, Alex draws on his experience in developing marketing plans, preparing sales materials, developing negotiation strategies, and supporting a client throughout every stage of the inherently trying processes involved in a co-op transaction. By streamlining and contextualizing the process, Alex is able to assist his client to maximize their prices, and their terms.
When working with a buyer, Alex casts a wide net to find them the ideal home, often seeking out and uncovering properties that fit as many needs as possible. For each client, seller and buyer alike, Alex has the resources of Compass and the entire Jeff Dyksterhouse Team at his fingertips.
Alex and the Jeff Dyksterhouse Team have a track record of success, that fuels the goals of each client. Alex’s goal is to help make the transition from one home to another as smooth and positive as possible, in every way.
