Oren Alexander has the dream career when it comes to real estate. Only in his late 20s, he is the co-founder of multi-million dollar division, The Alexander Team at Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Named one of NYC’s hottest bachelors by Gotham Magazine in 2011, he is definitely a catch and one of the hottest names in the business.
Coming from a real estate family where his father was a developer of luxury custom homes in Miami Beach and Aspen, Oren grew up learning the ins and outs of the notoriously competitive industry before heading off to college at the University of Colorado. After graduating with a BA in Finance in economically-turbulent 2008, he was able to strike an incredible first deal with the sale of an $8.75 million dollar penthouse.
Leveraging the deal in media, the sale put him on the map and he was on his way to becoming a star within the real estate world. With multiple million dollar deals to follow, at the age of 25 he broke the record for the most expensive home sold in South Florida history for $47 million. Currently, his team focuses on some of the hottest properties in the New York, Hamptons, and Miami markets.
Highly acclaimed across media for his rapid success, he has been featured in Detail Magazine as a Real Estate Rock Star, has been ranked #1 by The Real Deal Magazine "Top 35-and-Under NYC Real Estate Players", and has been listed as one of Forbes 30 Under 30 in Real Estate.
