Alex has over 20 years of software development and project management experience, including 13 years of management of large software development groups at the Microsoft Corporation. During that time, Alex worked as a development manager and Director of Microsoft Office International, and was in charge of an $80 million annual budget and oversight of a team of several hundred engineers, designers, project managers, and numerous national and international vendors.
Alex’s real estate experience is around income generating rental properties in Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Shoreline, and New Westminster, BC and Vancouver BC. In 2007, Alex and his partner, Faouzi Sefrioui, built “Park Metro”, an 80-unit mixed-use apartment building in downtown Bellevue at 11101 NE 12th Street, which was the first new construction in Bellevue completed after the 2008 recession. Park Metro opened to residents in 2014, reached stabilization in four months, and was sold in the first quarter of 2015. Following this, Alex and Faouzi acquired properties on NE 2nd street in downtown Bellevue. With Weber Thompson, a highly renowned firm in Seattle, as the architect on the project, they designed and built an 8-story, 155-unit mixed-use apartment building, named Cerasa, at 10961 NE 2nd Place Bellevue WA. Cerasa is scheduled to open in the spring of 2018.
Alex has a BS degree in Math and Physics and a Master’s degree in Computer Systems Engineering from Supélec, France. In his spare time, Alex gives back to his community through his work as city councilmember in Medina, WA. He was elected to and served a two-year term as Mayor of the City of Medina between 2016-17.
Faouzi’s career in real estate spans over thirty years in the Pacific Northwest. His experience includes real estate property acquisition, finance, development, new construction and property management. He has been involved with real estate development primarily in the Greater Seattle area, as well as Vancouver BC, Canada.
Faouzi has formed several partnerships for the purpose of developing land and the construction of new multifamily projects. In 2007, he launched Evergreen Point Development with Alex Morcos. Their first project together oversaw the development of the Park Metro Apartment homes, a 80-unit project in downtown Bellevue. In 2015, Evergreen partners began work on Cerasa, a 155-unit multifamily project. With its proximity to the Sound Transit lightrail expansion, the project has helped catalyze the area’s development towards a more pedestrian-friendly community in the downtown Bellevue core.
In 2005, Faouzi was appointed by Governor Christine Gregoire to the Washington State Housing Finance Commission, where, between 2005-2013, he served as commissioner for two, four-year terms. As a commissioner, he reviewed and helped approve funding for the construction of thousands of affordable housing units with a total budget of over $500 million per year.
