Rising Stars in Real Estate: Alex Anderson

Class of 2022

Alex Anderson began his career in real estate after leaving a corporate position at the end of 2014. His first year was a challenge: He took a 60% cut in his income and had his lights shut off twice. 

With little to spend on food, he relied on the Tuesday broker open tours where he would pocket extra sandwiches for lunch and dinner. Now Anderson volunteers at the Matthew 25 Food Pantry. 

After almost eight years of selling real estate as a lone agent, Anderson recently created The Collaboration, a team within Powers Realty Group. 

Having participated in leadership development program Forward48 and as a committee member in Radio Milwaukee’s Community Engagement Resource Group, Anderson works to support Milwaukee and the surrounding communities. 

“He is an incredibly talented and motivated individual who took a big leap to create a successful career in real estate,” said Ian Abston, director of the Hoan Group and co-founder of Forward48. “His journey inspired me and his fellow Forward48 alumni participants.”
