Born in Port Allen, Louisiana, Charlie grew up in a busy household with 8 children, his parents and an Uncle. From a young age, Charlie knew that he wanted to experience more than his small hometown could offer. After working for his father’s meat market and the Port of Baton Rouge to put himself through school at LSU, Charlie joined the Navy and became a Naval Aviator. The US Navy took Charlie around the world, and eventually brought him to Jacksonville, Florida where he met his future wife, Margaret. From Jacksonville, Charlie and Margaret ended up in Tarpon Springs, Florida where Charlie began his career in banking, while continuing to serve in the Navy Reserves. Banking brought Charlie to Crystal River, where he opened and managed the Crystal River branch of Heritage Federal, later Pioneer Bank. After several years in banking, Charlie decided to purchase a small real estate brokerage firm and opened Alexander Real Estate, Inc. in 1984. A one-man operation for the first year, Alexander Real Estate, Inc. quickly grew, thanks to Charlie’s dedication to the community and strong reputation as ethical and knowledgeable in all phases of the real estate transaction. Always a hard worker, Charlie’s philosophy is “I will never be out worked by anyone.” This philosophy has carried over to Alexander Real Estate, Inc., which has agents on duty, 7 days a week.
