Real Estate Professional

Alejandro Bates takes pride in representing a record $7 million sale for the Ramble in Biltmore Forest, standing as the second-highest sale in Asheville for the year 2023.

Alejandro brings a wealth of experience from a diverse professional background that originated on Wall Street to his partnership with Premier Sotheby's International Realty's Asheville office. A broker associate and global real estate advisor, he is dedicated to helping his clients navigate and succeed in the local market.

Commencing as a financial analyst, he soon earned a spot on one of the top teams in the industry, ranked by Institutional Investor.  Later transitioning into equity sales, Alejandro became a top-producing salesman focusing on European accounts. He gained invaluable experience working with some of the largest investment banks in the world alongside talented investors. Drawing on the analytical and negotiating skills cultivated in this high-stakes environment, he seamlessly transitioned into real estate investing and advisory roles, investing in various sectors such as residential and commercial properties, as well as vacation and rental units over the past two decades.

A graduate with a bachelor's degree in economics from Tulane University in New Orleans, Alejandro is a Licensed Real Estate Salesperson and an active member of the Land of the Sky Association of REALTORS®. He is fluent in Spanish and leverages Sotheby's global network in his mission to deliver a superior level of service. Alejandro prioritizes understanding his clients' needs and consistently strives to surpass expectations in every transaction.

Alejandro has extensive experience working with sophisticated clients and high-net-worth individuals. This background provides him with a unique insight into the expectations of luxury real estate clients. His business acumen and relationship skills, honed over his career, give clients a distinct advantage when it comes to expertly valuing real estate and negotiating favorable outcomes in a competitive market.

Outside of real estate, Alejandro is an avid explorer of Western North Carolina's outdoors and an enthusiast of Asheville's vibrant food and art scene. His recreational pursuits include mountain biking, skiing, hiking, and playing tennis and pickleball. Alejandro resides in the Ramble with his wife and two sons.
