About Me

I’m incredibly thankful that I grew up in Waynesville, North Carolina. Everywhere my grandfather went, I did also. He helped me form many valuable personal and business relationships. I was a multi-sport athlete at Tuscola High School. I was fortunate to compete collegiately at Lees-McRae College, Berry College, and Piedmont College prior to finishing my educational career at Western Carolina University, where I graduated with a B.S. in Criminology.

I have been heavily involved in leadership at my local church for many years and have served as the Chairman of the Board of Deacons for a couple of years. I am grateful to have a history of volunteering with the Haywood County Fairgrounds alongside my grandfather. My experience in life has helped me to build my skills in communication, awareness, and care.

In my personal time outside of real estate, you can most likely find me with my family and especially my grandfather, who is my best friend. You may find me with my friends, gardening, fishing, hunting, traveling, or officiating football and basketball.

I believe that dreams are meant to come true! My dream from the time I was 5 years old was to be a professional basketball player. I was able to live out my dream by competing at the professional level in England, Scotland, Wales, and Norway. I know what it is like to have dreams become reality through working extremely hard and being resilient through adversity. Now, my dream is to help anyone and everyone I come across along their path in real estate. Beverly-Hanks has given me that platform and I look forward to assisting you in your journey with real estate.

Experience

I believe we are all put on this Earth to serve one another in some form or fashion. My grandfather raised me on the principles of character and integrity. I’ve had the privilege to experience each phase of my life in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. Having been so deeply rooted here, I can provide an incredible experience that is truly authentic to local mountain hospitality.

I started my own company after graduating college and worked as a subcontractor inspecting structures after catastrophic storms. I traveled all over the country to areas affected by hurricanes, tornadoes, hail storms, and wind storms. During this time, I learned a great deal about homes and how they were built. I wrote reports for insurance adjusters for filed claims so they would have detailed information on how to assist their clients in some of the most discouraging times of their lives.

Client satisfaction will be achieved through character, integrity, availability, and open and honest communication. I will provide that through my work ethic and dedication to whomever I have the privilege of serving.

Testimonials

I have bought and sold 7 homes in my lifetime. The toughest one involved issues with flood plains. This transaction was even tougher involving a foreclosure that forced Alex to deal with an out-of-state bank and title company. He also had to deal repeatedly with the listing agent. This home had been empty for two years. All the plumbing had frozen and busted in many places. There had been previous roof leaks etc. I can't count how many times we had to have Alex return to this house, but I'm sure it was easily 20-30 times. The process of MANY home inspections, and existing issues would have worn any real estate agent to a frazzle. Alex showed up EVERY time we asked!...and always on time, smiling, polite, and helpful! He is by far the best real estate agent I have ever worked with, and would recommend him without reservation to anyone in this area. He is the best! As I said in the previous box: "Give this young man a raise, or a HUGE Christmas bonus!! He is making your company look fantastic, and probably a lot of money!! Thank you Alex!! We are loving our new project home!!

Alex went above and beyond in researching and personally scouting properties for us. We had some very specific requirements and he was able to filter through the available properties and show us the relevant properties efficiently. Additionally he was able to articulate the strong and weak points of each for our intended usage of the property. In the end he was very helpful in all aspects of the search and purchase.

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
