The Alexander brothers represent the pinnacle of luxury real estate.
Tal, 34, based in New York and Oren, 33, based in Miami, has been active for over a decade. Working under the umbrella of broker Douglas Elliman, they have become the No. 1 real estate team in New York, according to Real Trends.
The proof is in the agreements. With over $ 5 billion in career sales, more than $ 900 million have been closed this year alone. Operating primarily between New York and Florida, some of their most significant offerings included $ 37 million in penthouse sales at Eighty Seven Park in Miami Beach, a $ 30.5 million Coconut Grove detached house, and a $ 50 million penthouse in $ 111. West 57th Street in Manhattan
In 2019, the duo sold Miami’s most expensive home on 3 Indian Creek Island Rd. for $ 50 million. At the nearby Faena House, they sold Miami’s most expensive penthouse for a whopping $ 60 million. In Manhattan, they represented the billionaire’s hedge-fund manager, Ken Griffin, in the acquisition of the country’s most expensive apartment for $ 238 million.
Brother’s trophy qualities attract high-profile – often celebrity – clients from fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and supermodel Adriana Lima to financier Marc Leder, professional athlete Luol Deng and music artists The Chainsmokers, DJ Khaled, Kanye West, The Weeknd and Timbalad.
Running around New York and Miami with scheduled schedules, the couple is always on the move and their busy days are full of everything from real estate shows to customer dinners and a plethora of calls. Productive on social media, they also enjoy their free time, whether they spend fishing in the Gulf or at Wimbledon.
But just before a trip to Mykonos for a wedding, the Alexandros brothers allowed Insider to work a typical day in collaboration with the world’s richest buyers and sellers.
Tal starts his day with a cup of coffee before checking his emails and the day’s schedule. It takes some time to cover new stocks coming to market to understand new opportunities for its customers.
A resident of 432 Park, Manhattan’s famous luxury tower, spends 7:30 to 8:30 training in the building’s private gym before returning to the upper floor for a shower and getting ready for the day.
Oren starts his day from his home office (designed by himself) in Miami with an espresso, his laptop and his phone, which he usually emailed from the night before, setting up his day and talking to customers.
From there he goes on a 30 minute call with the Miami team to check the listings, shows and market activity.
At 8:30 he works with his personal trainer in his home gym, answering calls between sets. He loves an ice bath after training, after which he has relaxed enough to attack during the day.
9 in the morning
Tal starts sending calls as his day begins, usually from his office to his home. Sometimes he shows qualities all day and sometimes not at all, so depending on the day he enters the office periodically to meet with the team.
Oren goes to meetings in Miami for developments he is consulting or for new listings he wants to take on. The shows are back to back all day. Thanks to his driver, he is always on car calls between engagements.
The days of both brothers are usually full of performances.
Oren sold a trophy to 819 Orchid Dr. at Boca Raton for $ 19.9 million in June. The modern 9 bedroom style house has reached the highest price paid for a detached house in the history of Boca Raton.
Located on the Intracoastal Waterway, the property has 343 feet of beachfront facilities and features amenities from four infinity pools to a private pier, 270-degree views and a rooftop waterfall. Not to mention the exterior of each bedroom.
In New York, Tal represents Apartment 84A on Manhattan’s famous 432 Park Ave. The $ 21,000,000 list offers buyers a private elevator entrance and 2,633 square feet, overlooking North Central Park and east to the East River.
With 10 by 10 foot windows, the apartment also features 12-by-6 ceilings, marble floors and benches, as well as Dornbracht chrome lamps.
Tal often sits with clients to meet and build relationships or meet someone new. Often in restaurants such as the Greek restaurant Milos and the basic Italian Manhattan Cipriani in the city center, but he also enjoys the private restaurant in his building. His meal is usually a salad or fish, finished with double espresso.
As a resident of 432 Park, Tal’s access to the building’s private amenities means he can store special meat from butchers, as well as a wine collection – valued by many of his customers.
In Miami, Oren frequently stops at Milos and Siprani locations in Miami for luncheon with clients or stops at The Bal Harbor Grill, a busy area.
Tal shows his $ 20,500,000 entry on 520 Park Avenue. The unit, house 25, is one of 35 in the entire building.
With stunning city and Central Park views, the apartment also features 11-foot ceilings, White Oak hardwood floors and a Christopher Peacock kitchen with Miele, Wolf and Subzero appliances.
If Tal does not run around town for more shows, he enters the office to check in with the team about the lists and how they are trading real estate. It also monitors the progress of the upcoming closure.
The time for business growth also comes into the picture. Tal will often take the time to design new projects that fit their client profile and get in touch with developers. The couple loves hosting at 432 Park to promote developers, Tal said, to introduce himself and find opportunities for collaboration.
Oren spends the afternoon jumping around Miami on appointments, from real estate shows to developer meetings and more, often even accompanying clients to real estate shows in front of his boat. Customers want to see a sunrise or sunset in a home sometimes, he said.
Born and raised in South Florida, Oren said the couple’s Miami office goes above and beyond to connect their relocated clients to the community by offering them the services of a full-time concierge that can offer anything from top recommendations. doctors even make hard reservations best restaurants.
For Tal, phone calls end around 7, when he often goes to the center of the SoHo Lola Taverna restaurant for some Greek food with customers.
At the same time, Oren ends the day with some activity and likes to host a tennis match every night before starting dinner with guests. He likes to dine with customers, he said, because his experience gives him the opportunity to bring customers together across industries, hear what they do and connect.
On Friday nights, Shabbat dinner is a priority and Oren spends time with his parents at home to make up for the difference.
While no brother admits that he has a lot of time for tactics
on their schedule, Oren said he sometimes takes the time to watch a show while traveling. And before he went to sleep, Tal said he enjoyed reading a good book.
