About ALEX

About
Alex Johnsons first breath drew in the salty tang of the Santa Cruz air, and he has lived most of his 59 years on the northern edge of the Monterey Bay. A lifelong surfer, Alex knows Santa Cruz from the kelp roots off shore to the top of Loma Prieta Mountain and all the beaches, streets, alleys, hills dales and condo complexes between. Alex Knows and loves Santa Cruz and has seen the Silicon Rush transform the sleepy, quiet coastal town of his youth into the thriving, multi-dimensional community of the 21st Century. A lifelong resident of Santa Cruz and committed real estate agent since 1989, Alex Johnson has bought and sold hundreds of homes for himself, friends, family and strangers. Alex is fully aware of the opportunities and challenges that demand presents for buyers and sellers. Some Realtors sell houses as a job. For Alex, selling houses is an art and passion. He loves all sides of the challenge and takes pride in doing it right.

Diane M. in Santa Cruz Area

I have known and worked with Alex over 25 years. He is one of the most professional and knowledgeable Agents in our market. We recently closed a Sale when Alex represented Buyers on my listing. It was a competitive situation but Alex advised his Buyers wisely and guided them through a seamless transaction. My Seller and I were greatly impressed with the happy outcome for all parties.

Cimeron M. in Santa Cruz Area

Alex is a phenomenal realtor, and a really great person. We were introduced to him by friends who were impressed by his skills, in-depth knowledge of the market and incredible helpfulness after the purchase of their home in finding multiple contractors to do a lot of work at their new home. After working with him, we became even more impressed since he has the inside scoop on pre-listed homes, he can accurately estimate the cost of repairs and upgrades (essential for this market since so many homes need work), and he even hooks you up with great contractors to do the work. He's also incredibly knowledgeable about 1031 exchanges since he's done them for himself and his clients. I really appreciate the fact that he's proactive and constantly networking for his clients, checking out houses on broker tour on our behalf, talking with other agents about upcoming listings and discussing sales to develop an accurate read on current market conditions.

Jeanne B. in Santa Cruz

Weve worked with Alex twice now- first to purchase a home, then to sell a home. Alex is not only highly knowledgeable of the Santa Cruz area and housing market, but a genuinely nice person that has made the home purchasing and selling process as pleasant as possible. Alex quickly picked up on my husband and my style for interaction. He was patient and resourceful, but assertive when needed to jump on the right opportunities. We were particularly impressed and grateful with Alexs guidance during our recent home resell, as we placed our home up for sale right as the recent market bubble started to show signs of uncertainty. We recommend Alex to friends and family, and will certainly work with him in the future!

Beth P. bought a home in Capitola

I recently closed escrow on a cute little beach condo in the Capitola Jewel Box. It's the fourth home I've owned, but the first as a single woman-- so it was a very proud moment. I could not have gone through this somewhat scary process without the help of the best realtor in the world, Alex Johnson. First he found me the place, second, he got my offer (one of 6) accepted and because he's a local resident who's lived in Santa Cruz for over 30 years, he knows everybody and he's well-liked and respected. For instance, he's been extremely helpful in referring me to local contractors and service providers. What. A. Guy. I know all realtors work hard and now that I am the recipient of that due diligence, I can truly appreciate it. If you are looking to buy in this still competitive market, I highly recommend Alex.

Pam S. sold a home in Capitola

He is hard working and caring. We were able to close escrow on the sale of a mobile home for my aunt's estate even with enormous obstacles placed by the city, county, housing authority and HOA, he is a jewel. Anybody who is selling in Loma Vista need s this man on their side.. He brought us potential buyers immediately after listing with him (previous broker had over 1 1/2yr and never brought us a nibble.) I doubt you will find any other willing to work so hard to close a deal. He is worth 10 stars.

Michel A. bought a home in Davenport

We recently bought a house in Davenport. Alex's work was A+ all the way. From the quick responses to email, text or phone calls, to preparing a good offer, looking at all the details of the property, organizing inspections, etc. Alex was with us the whole process. He also has been in the area for a long time, and he seems to know everyone. Could not recommend him more strongly.

Tria T. bought a home in Scotts Valley

Alex is awesome! He went above and beyond in every way during our recent home search and purchase. He was a pleasure to work with, super knowledgeable about the area, responsive, and took all (million) of our questions in stride. We always felt like we were in good hands and would recommend him to anyone. Thank you, Alex!!
