About Alexandra
Alex understands how complicated real estate markets look from the outside.  She recognizes the importance of having a trusted advisor to guide you through an unfamiliar process.  

Providing Value to Medical Trainees and Professionals
Alex is intimately familiar with the unique demands of medical trainees' schedules.  She saw it up-close while her husband Matt completed his medical degree in Boston and continues through residency at Duke.  

She focuses on helping medical trainees and attendings who have particular needs, limited bandwidth, and often limited experience to take on the task of finding their new home.  Similarly, she helps current homeowners explore their options when transitioning for training elsewhere.  Moving hospitals, changing jobs, and moving cities is hard enough -- Alex aims to simplify the process of buying or selling your home so you can focus on what matters. 

Building a Team Designed for You
When you are building your team for your purchase or sale, Alex can provide the support and resources you need to move forward with confidence.  As your Realtor she can connect you with her network of lenders who have specific experience and specialized mortgages just for physicians.

Alex sees real estate as a people-first process and is passionate about what she does. It is the reason why she invests so much of her time and energy in her relationships with her clients. 

Beyond Real Estate: Blending a Wide-Range of Skills
Alex’s career reflects a deeply-held love of learning and ability to integrate experiences to be successful. Her poise, professionalism, and commitment to excellence have led from roles in program management to banking, marketing to regional leadership.

The skills she honed across these she uses to best position her sellers for a sale, negotiate for her buyers, and advocate on behalf of her clients.

From start to finish, her clients are the priority.

On a More Personal Note
Alex earned her master's degree from Duke University's Fuqua School of Business and attended college at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She enjoys good coffee, exploring green spaces, and acting as an unofficial tour guide sharing her love of where she lives with newcomers and visitors.

Moving to Boston? 
Alex maintains her strong ties to Boston, still frequently traveling there, and happily assists clients moving to the Boston area find rentals or condos.  She simplifies the process for her clients by knowing where to look based on the commute and hospital, handling the details, and finding the right thing with the help of her team.
