Ali Safavi Real Estate Review | Alexis Balner

Alexis is regarded as one of the most liked and well-respected real estate agents in El Segundo.

Originally from New Jersey, Alexis went to Arizona State University and then moved to Southern California to start her career.

Alexis has spent the last ten years in real estate. She is the head agent at Balner & Co. and specializes in primary and secondary homes averaging $600,000. There are two main qualities that make her such a stellar SoCal realtor: negotiation and communication. With Alexis, it’s never about “selling.” She just wants to match the right person with the right opportunity. But, once you find that opportunity, she will do everything in her power to get the best price possible.
