With a long and comprehensive history in real estate and investments, Alexis McGee is a successful business owner who taps into her 36 years of knowledge and experience to provide guidance and mentoring to her real estate agents.
As the president and head broker with the Alexis McGee Group, Inc. a boutique real estate brokerage based in California, Alexis specializing in residential and commercial real estate with a focus on acquisitions and dispositions of both wholesale and retail real estate.
Alexis began her lucrative career in real estate after she graduated from Arizona State University with a B.S in finance and real estate in 1983. She worked as an investment property specialist for Grubb & Ellis Commercial Real Estate, and was eventually promoted into the role of national director of REO Properties, a position that was created for her.
At Grubb & Ellis, Alexis was the first woman investment real estate agent in the Sacramento region. She closed her first deal, at the young age of 24; an exclusive listing for three multi-family projects with a total sale of $13 million. As a result, Alexis was awarded Rookie of the Year for the firm. Alexis adds that she had to prove herself in what was a very male dominated industry at the time, “I wasn’t successful because I was trying to be like the guys, I succeeded because I believed that I was just as talented, and there was enough business for everyone.”
After the Tax Reform Act of 1986 and the housing market crash that followed, Alexis began investing in foreclosure homes to fix and sell for profit. In 1992, she left commercial real estate and co-founded Foreclosures.com, an internet based business that specialized in foreclosure real estate information. As the co-owner of the business, she trained and coached thousands of investors and realtors on how to make profits through foreclosures, the right way.
In 2006, she was interviewed and featured on a front-page Wall Street Journal article that focused on the investment opportunities in the foreclosure sector. Alexis explains that this article, entitled, Slower Home Sales Open Up a Market For Some Investors, changed her life and as a result she became the author of two best-selling books and a nationally sought after foreclosure expert.
After running Foreclosures.com for over twenty years, Alexis retired from the internet and seminar business in 2014 and went back to her roots of real estate investing. By 2017, she launched her real estate brokerage, where she mentors her agents to help them successfully build their own real estate businesses.
Alexis explains that she has built her business on more than just technology – but by creating lasting relationships and providing her clients value; skills that she passes on to her agents. She adds, “I built my business the old-fashioned way, by getting out and meeting people and actually caring enough to provide quality service to every client. My goal is to become their number one real estate resource.”
In addition to her professional accomplishments, Alexis continues to give back to the community by hosting local, monthly real estate meetups with the California Real Estate Investors: Alexis McGee Group.
Her two books, Guide to Making Huge Profits Investing in Pre-Foreclosures Without Selling Your Soul and Guide to Advanced Investing Techniques You Won't Learn Anywhere Else are both available on Amazon.
