Alex Yost

I have learned that customers speak with conviction and they will stop at nothing to get to the right result.  I've been fortunate to learn through my extensive business experience across multiple industries just how important listening to customers is any field. I want to build you a great home.  I hear what the market says, what customers want and what experience demands will create a great value.  I live in Raleigh with my wife, 3 daughters, and many dogs!  I look forward to meeting with you and hearing your needs.



I believe the little things do matter in building homes, from listening to customers or being able to execute the requirements needed to build a strong home. As a business development executive in Raleigh for over 25 years, I understand that relationships and trust are crucial.  Choosing plans with your lifestyle in mind and ensuring details are correct is my goal every day.  I live in Raleigh with my wife, two daughters and two dogs.
