Alex Kay is English by birth but has lived in Montreal since
1998 having narrowly missed the infamous ice storm. He has lived
in England, New Zealand, Spain and France and having finally
found a place he can call home, has been involved in Real Estate
in some form or another since 2002. He is bilingual in English
and French and has a working knowledge of Spanish. He is a
graduate of the University of Exeter in the UK.
As a regular on the Downtown
scene, Alex is often a point of reference for many of his
colleagues when it comes to market activity in the Downtown core
and especially in the Quartier des Spectacles, which is also the
area where he lives as he specialises in the high-end condo
market. He has also received multiple awards in the Royal LePage
corporate family including the 'Gold Award' for being in the top
10% of realtors in Canada and is now looking forward to
improving on that with Remax Action Westmount.
Alex originally started working in
Real Estate marketing and learned the art of market analysis and
how to evaluate the proficiency of an advertising campaign. He
also has a keen interest in statistics and can quickly evaluate
a unit’s potential sale value almost anywhere in the city using
statistics and historical data.
He is also one of the few brokers in the
City to consistently list rental properties and can provide
invaluable experience in that field to anyone interested in
renting their unit. In addition to that, Alex has transaction
records in Le Plateau, Old Montreal, St Henri, and Westmount.
