[smart_track_player url="" ]


When I scheduled this interview I had no idea the story behind the top producer. Alex's success story is a truly amazing and inspiring one. Listen in as he shares his version of the American dream and how real estate helped him do it.

Meet Alex Rezende

Alex Rezende is a top producing mega-agent/team leader turned broker after buyer ownership in RE/MAX Pioneers in Cypress, TX. He's built an incredible business that consistently ranks in the top team in Texas and Houston for total sales and closed volume.

With team numbers of $88 million you're probably thinking, “I bet he's got a huge team”. Well usually I would agree with you too, but in this case, we would both be wrong.

Alex accomplished those monstrous numbers with just a team of 6 agents & admin TOTAL.

He credits a hardcore work ethic and some serious marketing strategies like geographic farming for his beastly results.

Listen in as he breaks down just how he manages to close $44 million in personal production, manage a team that does another $44 million as well as runs a successful brokerage.
