“I assure you there’s no market for that” another realtor told us when we tried to sell a fractional ownership at Tahoe. But Alex West had a different attitude and perspective. He took on the challenge and navigated through drafting an operating agreement, meeting all of the owners in the property, and developing a plan to sell a non-standard product. In the end, he found a buyer that paid within the range Alex had predicted at the beginning of the process. I was impressed with Alex’s ability to see a solution when others only saw obstacles, and am very pleased with the final result.”

“My husband and I recently closed escrow on a lakefront property in Carnelian Bay, CA. Being real estate professionals ourselves, we were looking for an agent who was both personable and professional to handle our purchase for us. After meeting with numerous lakefront agents, we found Alex.

Alex far exceeded our expectations and was very on-top of every aspect of the purchase. He is extremely knowledgeable  of the lakefront market and made the transaction seamless. His database of contacts for all inspections and repairs is unmatched. We have met with many vendors that Alex recommended, and we have used them all for dock work, buoy inspections/repair, landscaping, roofing etc. Alex was there for us every step of the way which was very helpful given that we do not live in the area. We highly endorse his real estate services and would welcome a phone call should you have any questions.”

“I have worked with many other real estate agents and I rate Alex as one of the absolute best!

My experience was excellent. Alex is professional and very friendly, knowledgeable and easy to work with. His integrity is beyond reproach and he follows through on everything. He provides great research and perspective front end in deciding on a listing price, in how to ensure best listing and viewing of your property, and in entertaining offers. Regarding the escrow process he’s fantastic – great follow through, understands the process well, and will go out of his way to ensure everything is done properly which I value – he always has his client in mind.”

– Shelley S.


“Alex and his team are awesome. He educated us on Tahoe City and the West Shore as that’s where we wanted to be. After showing us a few properties and understanding our needs he then introduced us to Tahoe Tavern. From there he negotiated a below market price and helped us with all the necessary due diligence along the way. Bottom line…I’d recommend Alex to anyone looking to buy property in Tahoe.”

I had a great experience with Alex West during the sale of our house. There were many roadblocks during this transaction and Alex plowed through in a very professional, yet friendly demeanor. Alex consistently kept me informed on any changes or updates. He is was able to explain the process in an easy-to-understand way. He always stayed positive and realistic. Alex is very knowledgeable on the Truckee area. I would highly recommend using Alex and his team for any real estate transaction. Thank you, Alex!”

“We were not sure how serious we were about getting into fulltime ownership on our beloved West Shore but we met Alex and immediately felt at ease with him and trusted him. He kept his eye open for places that might interest us, and he quickly figured out what those might be. He was very knowledgeable about the Tahoe market and he kept in touch in a friendly low-pressure manner, and then helped us make a successful offer on the house we liked before it was on the open market.  He’s continued to be a great resource when we need service people at the house. We think of Alex as more friend than agent and we have enjoyed getting to know him and his growing family.”

“We recently closed on our beautiful home on Edgecliff Way in Dollar Point. 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.”

“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.”

“At first we talked to several real estate agents. I am very cautious when it comes to giving my trust to people but Alex has completely earned it. It has been our pleasure to know him.

– Terry + Carolyn A.


“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, 40-year Tahoe residents and multiple business owners.


“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.”

“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. Bought two properties through Alex.


“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.”
