Alex Jaffe’s love for real estate began during a few major cross country moves spanning the past 20 years. After living in the suburbs of New York City, one day he unexpectedly packed up, hit the road and moved to beautiful Lake Tahoe, Nevada. After years of appreciating the laid back lifestyle and gorgeous landscape, the desire for a faster pace was too much to bear and he hit the road again. This time to Hollywood, Ca. He lived right smack in the hustle and bustle of the star infused community and rented a condo blocks away from the famous Melrose Avenue and the Sunset Strip. Although his landscaped rooftop deck overlooked the Hollywood sign, and the location was as exciting as can be, it only took one year for him to realize that the hype of Los Angeles wasn’t his speed.
Down to San Diego he went. Alex found a one bedroom house with a garage blocks away from the beach and never looked back. It’s in this house where his love for real estate solidified. Having extreme appreciation for his home, it’s location, and the San Diego way of life, Jaffe developed an eye for noticing cool properties like his. Despite happiness living by the beach, a job opportunity closer to family in New York sent him packing one last time. Or so he thought. Happily living by family on the East Coast Alex pictured life there forever. It wasn’t until a vacation in Austin Texas did he realize there was a city that seemed to have it all.
