Born and raised in Oklahoma, Alex Waugh started being involved in real estate early in life at the age of 16. With his parents operating their own property management company and rehab flips, he was around real estate projects that contributed to his interest in a career in real estate.
During high school, Alex attended an Electrical Technology program that trained him to be an electrician at a nearby trade school. He competed in a competition called SkillsUSA which is similar to the Olympics but for tradesmen. Alex excelled and became the best electrician in Oklahoma for his age group (only two groups, adult and high school). Qualifying nationally, he ended up competing on the nation’s biggest stage and ranked having the best-timed electrical project in the United States of America in the high school division. Proud of himself for his accomplishments, he wanted to continue challenging himself and desired to attend higher education which led to applying to a university.
By the time he was in a four-year Business College (click here for courses completed), he had interned with a Research and Development Department at a major employer for four years. After that internship season, Alex grew fond of the entrepreneur mindset and possibilities. Alex graduated from Oklahoma State University (OSU) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Management and a Minor in Marketing in 2015.
After college, Alex joined the family business and began assisting in managing properties. In order to collect rent in Oklahoma, it’s required to gain a real estate license, so that exactly what he did. The freedom to have flexible hours and participating in rewarding work was inspiring to him to do more.
A few months after joining the business, he ended up acquiring enough new property management business to almost double the size of the company. This allowed new people to join the company and Alex shifted his focus more on sales.
Alex got married to his wife Brandi in Stillwater in 2017. Moving several times over the years, Alex is familiar with different communities in Oklahoma such as Stillwater, Tahlequah, Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Edmond, Oklahoma City, and other surrounding metros. These moves allowed him to make connections with other real estate professionals all around the state adding to his network.
In 2019, Alex bought a two-story duplex in Edmond, OK, and shortly later moved into one side with his wife. Property managing for others made becoming a Landlord for himself an easy transition.
Since Alex is always trying to grow, he decided to become a real estate broker associate in 2020. After studying for over 140 hours over 2 months, he reached his goal by passing the state broker exam. This goal was to show he could meet what was required, and go beyond those standards so that he would be ready for anything his clients needed of him.
Now about to be a first-time father, Alex serves commercial businesses and families in the OKC Metro. Alex continues to improve his knowledge daily, as studying is never-ending. He quotes "Success is helping others be successful."
