The perfect home is found where location, design, and sound investment intersect with the heart you bring to it. Alex has experience – educational, professional, and personal – that ticks each of these boxes. She has an in-depth understanding of how social, geographic, and economic forces influence the market and a life-long appreciation of art and design.
Alex grew up on the south coast of New Brunswick (often drawing house layouts in the sand at the beach). She lived in BC as well as the UK and Japan, before moving back to the east coast and settling in Halifax in 2006. Here, she lives with her husband, two kids, and dog, in the house they renovated into a home that feels happiest when filled with friends, family, and good food.
Community is important to Alex and she regularly volunteers in a variety of capacities, from local charities to her kids’ school and minor sports. Alex is a certified yoga instructor and teaches at her neighbourhood studio. She loves to travel, is seldom without a book, and is always keen to get out for a good hike through the woods or by the ocean with her pup, Bowie.
Alex holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History & Cultural Studies, a Diploma in Urban Land Economics, and an Advanced Diploma in GIS for Business. She is a Chartered Surveyor (MRICS) and a member of the Nova Scotia Real Estate Appraisal Association. She’s also the mother of twins, which has helped hone her negotiation and mediation skills perhaps even to a larger extent than her formal training in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution ever could!
With her educational and professional background, combined with her friendly, empathetic personality and excellent organizational skills, you can rest assured that when working with Alex, you will be well informed, supported, and likely to have a laugh or two.
