Alex Wang, a real estate evangelist for Sereno Group, entered the real estate game with a unique background in 1999. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Human Thinking from UC Berkeley and is a graduate of the Influence and Negotiation Strategies Program at Stanford.
More recently, he founded a successful independent brokerage, which was later acquired.
Today, Alex spends his days sharing his experiences of growing a business and the art of negotiation with others in the real estate industry. He is also recognized by the Wall Street Journal as one of the top 250 agents nationwide, and has been announced as one of the finalists for the “Most Innovative Agent” category at the Inman Innovator Awards 2017.
