Brian Alfi is a broker for Windemere Real Estate, the leading residential real estate company in the Western United States with over 300 offices and 6,500 agents. His team specializes in working with multifamily investors and first-time home buyers throughout Washington, from Seattle to Everett and the Eastside. He leads a thriving business that has grown nearly 40 percent in a single year, with an increase in transactions from 36 in 2019 to 60 transactions the past 12 months. Their use of digital marketing for their clients, especially on listings, sets them apart from competitors and has served as a main driver behind this growth, in addition to a dedicated staff of two assistants, who allow him more time to focus on clients. “We are in a great spot right now, and I see us continuing to grow and adding new roles to our team in the near future,” he says.
Brian has a reputation among his clients for his immense knowledgeable of the entire real estate industry and his superior negotiation skills, with a proven history of winning bidding wars and saving them money. As the owner of rental units himself, his personal insight gives him an intimate appreciation of his clients’ goals, and as a current high school wrestling coach, he is a natural at explaining the process and giving them a greater understanding of it. It is this unique combination that has led Brian and his team to consistently receive five-star reviews for their well-refined process, familiarity with local areas, availability, superb customer service, and use of current technology.
However, the underlying driver of Brian’s success is his genuine passion for his work and for helping people. “I never feel like I’m working,” he shares. “Real estate is such a great investment. It’s a great generator of wealth and a sound financial decision for countless families and individuals, so it’s easy to be passionate about helping people change their lives.”
Brian began his career four years ago, but his intense interest in the field began much earlier in life. As he observed his parents in their work as real estate agents, it was during those years that he became inspired to join the profession. He attended Central Washington University, where he majored in business and minored in history, and when the time was right, Brian entered real estate industry by reaching out to his friends and acquaintances in a close network, which has now grown into a large social media presence—and a thriving career.
As a former wrestler, Brian has served as head wrestling coach at Edmonds-Woodway High School since 2011. Last year, he led the team to a second-place finish in the state tournament and previously was named State Coach of the Year in both 2016 and 2019. “Coaching is like real estate in some ways. You do the best job you can to communicate and to build strong relationships, whether it’s with clients or with athletes,” Brian says.
