Alexander Wilkas was born in Chicago, grew up along the Indiana border and moved west in the late 60’s. His BS is from Redlands University in Business Administration. He spent many years working for an international health and beauty company as the Quality Assurance Manager for Contract Manufacturing, traveling 50% of his time, and for a major food company.
He had over 20 years of high-level corporate business experience with two major Bay Area employers where he was an expert in contract manufacturing. During this period his exposure included contract negotiations for the lease & purchase of manufacturing / warehouse buildings as well as the purchase of land (site selection) for new plant needs. These major Bay Area employers found his judgment and experience invaluable and utilized his talents further as a manager in the area of quality control. These skills (negotiations and quality management) have proven invaluable to his real estate clients. He transitioned into Real Estate in 2002 and joined Lenore.
Alex works with commercial clients as well as individuals seeking investment properties and homes. Alex works with Lenore as a team in handling joint clients. Together they provide seamless representation whether it’s for showing property or writing offers.
The Wilkas Group is a team and you get both when you hire them to represent you. Their motto is “Making Your Real Estate Dreams a Reality” and they mean that. Part of what they offer is education to all of their clients. Whether you’re a first-time buyer or seller or a long time investor, every time you buy or sell a property is different and a learning experience.
‟When faced with the challenge of moving from San Diego to San Francisco my wife and I had to search remotely for our rental home. As the leasing agent for the landlords of the home that we eventually agreed to rent, Alex was incredibly patient with our circumstances of not being local. Additionally, he exhibited the upmost integrity by keeping true … to all of his commitments to us throughout the process. We certainly had many anxieties about moving to a new city in short order, but we had great confidence in Alex. We will definitely consider working with Alex in the future, when we decide to purchase a home.” Read More ▾
