There is a great appreciation of neighborhood and community when you are born in Brooklyn, New York.  Being raised across the bridge in Budd Lake, New Jersey, I experienced the best of both “the city and the country.”  These many years later I have found yet another​ welcoming community in Naples, Florida.

I have always enjoyed building relationships and helping people.  My background in education has supported that joy and now I am able to expand that to include real estate.

Alex Johnson –Naples and Fort Myers Real Estate

Alex loves Southwest Florida. The people. The lifestyle. The great year-round climate. He moved to Fort Myers in the summer of 1986 and upon graduating from Cypress Lake High School joined the US Army, where he served his country in Desert Storm and was honorably discharged in 1993. His time in the Middle East made him realize how much he missed Southwest Florida and couldn’t wait to come home and begin his career. He’s been here ever since—as small business owner of an IT company, and as a knowledgeable, accomplished Real Estate Agent who is dedicated to helping families buy their dream home, or get the maximum value on their listing. Alex truly goes the extra mile for his clients: using all the passion he has for the area, along with the honor and discipline he learned in his service to the country.

Alex is your single resource for all Real Estate needs

Since 2013, Alex has been working in the Fort Myers, Naples and Cape Coral market as well as the surrounding counties: Manatee, Sarasota, and Charlotte – working with sellers, first time home-buyers, luxury home listings, and seasoned investors. Alex prides himself on service: solving problems, finding solutions, and exceeding expectations. His knowledge of the region is unparalleled, as his passion for ensuring that sellers get the maximum value for their listing, and that buyers find exactly what they’re looking for. Alex is dependable and focused, and driven by honesty and integrity in everything he does. He is committed to getting results so that clients will come back to him for any future real estate needs they may have.

 Alex’s Real Estate Perspective

“There’s a world of difference between a good agent and a great agent. The former makes sure all the boxes are checked and follows the protocol. The great agents go far beyond that. They hustle. They research. They dig. They leverage. They fight. They negotiate. But most of all they listen. They truly hear your needs and fears and challenges and goals, so that they can make sure you get exactly what you’re looking for, and then some.”

With over 20 years of experience in sales and marketing, I am committed to providing excellent service to those I am working with. As a Real Estate Professional, I recognize the value and trust my clients place in me, and I strive every day to exceed their expectations.

Being a 4th generation Southwest Floridian, I have extensive knowledge of this area, as I have seen it grow from a sleepy little town, to one of the most desirable places to live.  I love Southwest Florida as much as I love serving the people that live here. I strive to demonstrate the highest level of integrity and commitment, and to bring a little fun into every real estate transaction.

Outside of real estate, I love spending my time with my wife and two boys.  Whether we are hiking, golfing, out on the water or just hanging out and eating as much food and Ice cream as we can, we love spending time together.

If you are looking to buy or sell, I would consider it a great honor to take this journey with you.  I’m not looking to just be your real estate agent, I also want to be a trusted friend.

Email: Daniel@paradisecoastpropertyteam.com

I have been a resident of Naples since 1989, but grew up on Long Island, New York. I am married and

have 11-year-old twins and two older boys, so I can relate to the importance of schools, entertainment,

and leisure for the whole family.

I am a high-energy, self-motivated individual with a passion for real estate. I am truly blessed to be able

to love what I do for a living and it comes through in my work. I started practicing real estate because I

enjoy helping people get what they want. Being a realtor goes further than assisting people with buying

or selling property. I have served as a manager and owner in different aspects of customer service so I

pride myself with treating people as they would want to be treated. Good is just not good enough when

someone is counting on you to come through for them.

I have experience in Naples real estate, personal and professional skills, and I am confident I can exceed

the expectations of my clients. I enjoy the fun and challenge of acquainting people with Naples, and

assisting them in their real estate decision making.

Proud member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Florida Association of Realtors
