Leah worked her way up the corporate ladder and achieved great success in the fashion industry.

On the other hand, Alex grew up in Mill Basin, Brooklyn. He attended Kingsborough Community College and Parsons School of Design, where he studied business and graphic design and he has an associates degree in business and a certification in graphic design. With his creativity and business acumen, he started his own screenprinting and embroidery business in Astoria Queens, catering to clients like MLB and Rocawear.

It was in the 8th grade that Alex and Leah met through mutual friends. They remained friends for a few years until their senior year of high school when they started dating. Their relationship flourished, and soon they were engaged and ready to start their lives together.

Alex and Leah got married in Brooklyn and moved to Manhattan. Leah landed a job at Gucci, and later at Kenneth Cole, where she worked her way up the corporate ladder. Meanwhile, Alex continued to run his successful screen printing and embroidery business in Astoria Queens.

As their family grew, they moved to Forest Hills Queens and then Hewlett Long Island. It was during this time that Leah decided to transition from the fashion industry to real estate. She saw an opportunity to use her skills and experience in sales to excel in a new industry.

In 2021, they made the decision to move to the national brand Douglas Elliman. It was a big move for them, but they were confident that their skills and experience would help them succeed in this new environment.
