Alex Balfour is a Kern County native originally growing up on a small ranch in Tehachapi. Besides working on the ranch since he could walk, Alex took his first job at 6 years old working on the hot roofs of Bakersfield helping his father service AC units in the summer time. Sunburnt and sore, it was at this point Alex decided he should probably work in an office instead of the hot summer roofs.
Alex later went on to receive a degree from Cal State Bakersfield in Business and joined CBRE, Central Valley (which later became Cushman & Wakefield, Pacific in 2012) 11 years ago, and currently works on a team with Jeffrey Andrew and Susan Moreno.
Alex Balfour is now an Associate Director with Cushman & Wakefield, Pacific specializing in the sale and leasing of Office & Medical Office properties.
