While maintaining an active role in sales, Alex is Managing Director of Harcourts Realty Plus, a reputable office and also one of the most successful real estate agencies Australia wide. In fact, under his management, Harcourts Realty Plus ranked Number 6 Office nationally from a pool of 395 Harcourts offices.
A former owner of several businesses in the service and retail sectors, Alex began his real estate career in Fremantle in 2007. Within a very short time, given a natural aptitude for people, sales and top results, he was not only selling plenty of property, he received Harcourts WA’s Rising Star Award, a very prestigious honour and sign of things to come.
By 2009, again a very short time in anyone’s estimation, Alex was the proud owner of Harcourts Realty Plus together with Tracy Garbes, Director of Sales and Training, and Gordana Caruso, Licensee and head of a very successful Property Management Department. With the multi award-winning agency now attracting the area’s largest market share in its core areas, and home to 25 staff across both its residential sector and commercial arm (NAI Harcourts), he hasn’t looked back since.
Born and raised in Cockburn/Fremantle, and with a family history of local business ownership, Alex is well-known and highly regarded in both the community and the wider real estate industry. He speaks fluent Italian and is sensitive to the values and heritage of the wider multi-cultural community. Alex draws upon a large network and an extensive database when marketing properties to prospective buyers. A confident agent with a positive outlook, Alex firmly believes there is a buyer for every home.
Known for his openness and transparency, Alex tells it as it is from the outset, drawing upon exceptional knowledge of the area and its marketplace. He also brings strong sales strategies and negotiation skills to each sale, while also maintaining fewer average days on market than most – and still ensuring a premium price.
Alex draws great personal satisfaction from seeing vendors achieve their property goals and helping them move onto the next phase of their life. While overseeing the business and implementing plans for moving it to even greater levels of success, he also enjoys mentoring staff and helping them maximise their potential.
A committed family man who loves spending time with his wife Pam and two beautiful daughters Alessia and Ellie, Alex is also Vice President of the Fremantle United Soccer Club and Executive Committee Member of the Fremantle City Football Club. He’s also pretty passionate about the Fremantle Dockers, Italian soccer team Juventus and English Premier League team, Chelsea!
