As a former staff member of the United Nations, Alex Own has developed a highly systematic and thorough approach to handling any given task. He approaches every home search with meticulous tirelessness, through which he’s been able, time and again, to locate the hidden gems among the heaps of average, at best, listings in Manhattan.
Being passionate about everything design and architecture, Alex does not settle for mediocre homes, and is only satisfied when he finds the best match for his clients. His discerning eye is always on the search for the most praise-worthy homes, from 19th century Federal-style townhouses in the Village to penthouses atop “starchitect” buildings on Billionaires’ Row.
He firmly believes in genuine and comprehensive communication. His clients are always certain there are no undisclosed or hidden fine prints on the deals he gets them. Attentive, thorough, and quick to respond, Alex makes your home search experience swift and pain-free as can be.
In his down time, Alex enjoys getting lost in a museum as well as in a book, or when New York City weather allows, playing tennis on clay courts.
