Born and raised in Charlotte, Alex never thought she’d stay put long enough to see the Queen City’s explosive growth. Several decades later, what was once just a stop between DC and Altanta is now a destination in its own right - and Alex is more rooted in her hometown than ever.
With a deep family background in the hospitality industry, Alex knows that service is at the root of all great transactions (no matter how small.) Since high school she worked in her family’s Plaza Midwood restaurants, doing every job from hosting to waiting tables to managing the floor. After a brief stint in the marketing agency world, her love of hospitality brought her back to the family business and full circle on her passion for Charlotte. While she’ll never be truly “out” of the family business - her ties to the area, a love of history/city planning, and a passion for architecture and design create the sense that all roads have been leading her to Charlotte real estate for many years.
She’s ready to nerd out on Charlotte history at the drop of a hat, apt to take a detour to show you what “used to be” (or what’s on its way) in any given neighborhood, and always committed to helping you grow your own roots in the city that holds her heart. Get in touch any way you’re comfortable and let her make Charlotte your hometown too.

“This long connection of a family with one spot, as its place of birth and burial, creates a kindred between the human being and the locality, quite independent of any charm in the scenery or moral circumstances that surround him. It is not love, but instinct.” - Nathaniel Hawthorne
