Aleksandar Petreski - Alek was born in Ohrid, Macedonia. As a child, Alek had aspirations of being a professional soccer player. A dream that never completely fulfilled but that dream developed habits that drove him to create a character of persistence, focused hard work, dedication to be the best he can be, to continually think how he can be better, how can improve to compete better today than he did yesterday.
Those developed habits, characteristics drives him even today as a Real Estate Professional. Never in a million years did he think he’d stumble into the real estate industry, but you can’t always predict where or when you’ll discover what you’re meant to do in life.
Alek understood at a young age that if he wanted to accomplish something in his life, he must work for it, not focusing on the obstacles, focusing on the solutions. Coming to America in 1996 and barely speaking any English, starting the various business from cleaning service to home appliances delivery, realized that Real Estate Investing is an excellent opportunity for a better tomorrow. He realized to be successful Real Estate investor he needs to find good deals, to find good deals he needs to find good contacts such as realtors, competent appraisers to help him with the enigma whether you are overpaying or not, to know how much can pay or how much he can sell for because timing is everything.

As the years went by, Alek worked his way up, never wavering in his resolve to become the best version of himself with each career move. During this time, Alek was buying and selling real estate, both for his clients and his personal use.
