Innately perceptive and level-headed, Alex Hirst combines a mastery of deadlines and contracts with a heart for people and an inclination toward problem-solving to guide clients through the buying and selling process. Gifted in helping people feel seen and validated, she is a strong negotiator who seeks out a win for everyone at the closing table.
Alex was always drawn to working with people. She earned a degree in English from the University of Georgia and worked in recruiting and experience management for Ernst & Young for several years, helping teams find the right candidates who would be a good fit. After buying a home in 2016 and forming relationships with other agents, she discovered that real estate was the perfect way to combine all her strengths into one career.
Known for her grace under pressure, Alex excels at exuding an upbeat, peaceful energy while managing the details so her clients can focus on making it through their milestones and transitioning to the next phase of their lives. Understanding that even positive evolutions can be stressful, she enjoys easing the overwhelm that accompanies change, no matter if her clients are buying a home for the first time or downsizing to be closer to their grandchildren. Particularly skilled in handling off-market transactions, she is committed to protecting their interests and treating clients like family.
A devoted mother of four, Alex was born in Houston and loves the Atlanta area for the variety of activities—restaurants, museums, parks, botanical gardens and more—supports Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and is actively involved in the Peachtree Presbyterian Church community. When she’s not working with clients, she relaxes by cooking, spending time with her husband and children, mingling with friends, walking her dog, attending a concert or musical, going out to eat or traveling.
