Meet Alex Piela


Why did I become a Realtor?

Well of course people would point out the financial rewards, and, yes, I guess with any job, you have to consider that. But why? Why a Realtor? I had been thinking of getting my license for some time. Then I had been looking through an old box of papers in the storage unit, and found the documents from when I bought my house in 1997. Then ten years later, I finally understood what all the things really meant. Things I learned through hard experience. And I was astonished to see what some of the things I signed off on really meant. And that if I had to do it again, I would have done it differently. Back then I did it by myself; I didn't use a Realtor. Then I had a thought, which I guess you could call the “lightbulb moment”. I thought that if I could do it again, I would have gotten someone to help me. And I realized that I could very well be helping people as a Realtor the way I wished I had help back in 1997.

If I couldn’t be a Realtor in Ocean City, I wouldn’t have done it. I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t think I could really a) do a good job of it and, b) help out people who want to be at the shore. There are so many different places you can own, so many different types of buildings, so many areas. You could have a place where you can walk to the Boardwalk. Or maybe a quiet place on the back bay in Ocean Pines or uptown Ocean City. When I say “The Shore”, I just don’t mean the beach and sand. There are lovely rural areas near Snow Hill, or a nice house in the Coolest Small Town, Berlin. Bishopville, Selbyville or wherever you feel at home..
