The NAHB Young Professionals Committee recognizes these finalists as future leaders, who intend on utilizing their skills to redefine the standards of the homebuilding industry. Communicators, problem solvers, risk tolerators, and creatives are attributes commonly used to describe real estate developers that are outshining those within this particular industry, and Alex Akel is one of them. Success comes with perseverance and a growth mindset, as these individuals continue to produce extraordinary results that are beyond those of their competitors.
Alex is a second-generation developer with an entrepreneurial mindset that strives above and beyond to seek out the latest trends and incorporate ways to address these ever-growing demands from customers.
