When it comes time to make one of the largest transactions of your life, strategy matters. You need expert guidance, powerful negotiation, and deep market knowledge on your side, because anything less on a transaction of this magnitude just doesn't make sense.

Alex Owens

CEO, The Alex Owens Team

Throughout Alex's career, he has been able to diversify his knowledge and expertise. Having spent a decade honing his marketing skillset, he eventually decided to apply those skills to Real Estate. This background allowed Alex to successfully sell over $25M in just his first year in the business and be ranked in the top 5% of agent in all of Southwest Florida. 

Alex believes every agent is in two businesses - Real Estate and Lead Generation. The reality is, any agent can easily place your home on the major home search sites, and most do. The question to ask is, what is this agent's actual lead flow like? Alex spends thousands of dollars each and every month on cutting edge marketing campaigns. This is a direct benefit to our clients because it allows us to connect interested buyers and sellers more effectively.

Here's Proof That Our System Works...

Our home sold in 2 days!

"My fiancé and I were looking to sell our home quickly. Alex Owens and his team crafted an excellent and attractive home listing, and our home sold in 2 days! The Alex Owens Team has wonderful negotiating skills and is very talented. They made the entire process very easy. They made sure we understood what was happening throughout the closing process. All of our questions were answered promptly. I would recommend The Alex Owens Team to any of my family and friends."

Sold it in ONE day!

"The Alex Owens Team came to my rescue when Ian flooded my townhome and the co-owner abandoned it and me.  They answered all my questions and concerns, listed my home at the price I wanted, and, in spite of it not being fully restored, sold it in ONE day! They are professional, very nice, helpful and continue to support me after the sale in dealing with FEMA problems at my former HOA. I put all of my trust in them and they were my champion in the hard times we suffered after Ian. I would 100% recommend them to handle your home sale (and actually have already done so!). They're awesome!"
