Early Career

Upon graduation, Alex began working for Segal Advisors (now known as Segal Rogerscasey) from 1997-1999. His responsibility as a financial analyst included working directly with clients which included corporations, nonprofit organizations, endowments, foundations, governments, and benefit trust. His responsibility also included providing reports to clients so that the clients can monitor investment strategies and portfolio results.

In 1999, Alex began to work for JP Morgan Chase as a financial analyst. His main responsibility was to deal with their high net worth individuals to review and analysis portfolio strategy and investment decisions.

In 2001, Alex began to work for Worldco LLC as a day trader on Wall Street. Although Alex had success as day trader he realized that the day-to-day stress and volatility of the market made it difficult to make this a long-term career. Alex was working in his office at one Wall Street on September 11, 2001, when terrorists hit the World Trade Center. The experience had a profound impact leading him to join the family business in real estate instead.

In 2001, Alex Noghreh began working in the real estate development and investment field full time. Over the course of the last 15 years, he has worked on projects within all the boroughs of NYC as well as Nassau County and Suffolk County.

Alex has worked with countless homeowners who were behind on their mortgage helping them sell their house and avoid foreclosure. Many of these homeowners were police officers, doctors, nurses and contractors who were hit hard by the recession and needed an opportunity to move forward with their lives. The advantage of selling their home instead of losing it to foreclosure gives many people the chance to be able to buy a house in the future instead of dealing with debt their entire lives. Alex has remained friends to several of these homeowners he purchased homes from helping them repair their credit and advising them on referrals for matters related to real estate.



Alex graduated Great Neck North High School in 1993. He attended Stony Brook University as a pre-med major from 1993-1995 but decided that he preferred a career in business rather than medicine. He transferred to Hofstra University where he graduated in 1997 with honors as a banking and finance major.
