Alex sells big Dollar Point Listing for $8.199m

Alex’s big listing in Dollar Point just sold in an incredible 9-day escrow for $8.199m cash. This represents the highest price ever recorded in our MLS for a North Shore property under 5000 square feet. Alex and his clients beat the MLS lakefront price per square foot sold average by over 25%. The neighbor had sold their similar property but didn’t maximize its exposure to the same buyer pool – Alex’s sellers got over $400 more per square foot for their estate.

While the numbers are impressive, at the end of the day the buyers and sellers both felt very good about this transaction and property on all levels. This is really the most important thing and makes this sale even more special. Get in touch with Alex to discuss buying or selling your Tahoe property!

Here is the website he created that has been so instrumental in selling this amazing property:

Kind Words from a client

I received this letter from a client on the Fourth of July – good stuff!


“July 4th, 2015

Another way to celebrate fourth of July is to thank an EXCEPTIONAL American realtor: ALEX WEST, because he is the BEST!

Alex, my wife Awatif and I thank you for your great AMERICAN VALUES that you have demonstrated to us from the minute we walked in to your office: You were very COURTEOUS with POSITIVE ENERGY. You BELIEVED in us being buyers, without hesitation, showed total DEDICATION, VALUED us by taking the time and coming up with all properties for sale; numbered and detailed with direction how to get to them.

Your DETERMINATION brought us the feeling of a serious buyer. To this date, I do not believe we own as we were NOT buyers when we walked in to your office. Your ATTENTION, KNOWLEDGE and PROFESSIONALISM resulted in our benefit.

We sincerely believe that without your help and SERVICE we wouldn’t own a property in Truckee. It’s not the money that buys a property, it is belief, positive energy and character – ALL GREAT VALUES of ALEX WEST.

People like you make America great!

Thank you again,

Awatif C. & Noor W.”

“We recently closed on our beautiful home at 324 Edgecliff Way in Dollar Point ($4 million). Alex West was a vital part of our decision to make an offer on the property and to follow through to closing. We were impressed by his knowledge of the market and his very straightforward and honest assessment of the market. Alex never pushed, always provided impartial but expert advice on the market and options. Alex guided us through the offer and closing phases and we were very happy with services which he provided to make the process seamless. Alex is serious about his business. He is honest and a man of integrity. He is personable and has a great sense of humor. I have recommended Alex West to other friends and I know that we will continue to rely on his expertise in the future.”

– Jennifer and Bob L.


“Alex was recommended to me by a friend & I am glad we worked with him. He sold our Tahoe home in a timely manner, in a tough market, he got us our price, he communicated well with us all through the process & advised us well on negotiations. We did all this communication via e-mail and phone. If you are looking for an agent who will be on your team and guide you through the whole process, Alex is your guy. I will refer him to any of my friends in the future.”

– Les M.


“We enjoyed working with you and will be in touch when we want to sell more property. Thanks again for getting it sold.”

– Bonnie and Ken


“Alex West provided an outstanding level of service and expertise from start to finish in our recent Tahoe lakefront purchase.

In buying real estate, the well known saying is “location, location, location”. When it comes to Tahoe-area real estate particularly, an equally important rule in selecting an agent is “knowledge, knowledge, knowledge” – specifically LOCAL knowledge and how to uncover outstanding lakefront properties and buying opportunities!  That’s exactly what Alex West provided us.

Alex not only knew exactly what we were looking for but worked diligently with us and constantly kept an eye out for the perfect property at the right price.  The bottom line, timing is everything, and when an incredible opportunity presented itself Alex was right on the spot and his grasp of the local Tahoe market allowed us to be first in line! Beyond finding just the right property Alex worked diligently to make sure all bases were covered and held our hand through every step of the process – all the way through closing on our Tahoe dream house.

Thank you Alex for your diligence and professionalism.  We will be more than happy to share our experience with anyone who wishes to call on us.”

– Walt and Carol B.


“Alex: We are back in Sacramento, and have been through 112 degree heat pulling a loaded trailer. We have had time to talk about our experience thus far in the transaction that you are helping us with. We couldn’t have done this without you. You are one super fella, and we sincerely appreciate you. So we wish you a peaceful remainder of your 4th of July holiday weekend.”

– Delores S.


“Alex was extremely accommodating and flexible while showing us houses. We were from out of the area and Alex always had time for us. He also was a giant help after our purchase with referrals of all types from contractors to arborists. I look forward to the next time we go house hunting with Alex!”

– Rana G.


“He understood our needs and didn’t waste time showing us properties that were not of interest to us. He is “quick” and has excellent follow-through. We would use him in a minute if we were to sell or buy another home.”

– Madeline S.


“My wife and I just bought our first house two months ago. We looked, casually at first, then a bit more intensely for over a year. Alex made what could have been one the most stressful experiences in my life an enjoyable one. It was always a pleasure to view a house with Alex. He would give his honest opinion, present the positives and negatives, potential of the property and always intertwined with his unique and truly “local” perspective. A combination of humor and knowledge that help us from losing it and rushing into a bad decision. I would recommend Alex to anyone who is looking to purchase a house in the Tahoe region. He is a tireless worker and has a great understanding of the particulars of the region. Its the little things that make you feel truly at home, Alex helped us see that. We could not be happier in our new home.”

– Jeff and Illissa C.
