Alex Washburn

My name is Alex Washburn and I recently left a career in journalism to pursue Real Estate investment full-time. 

In July of 2018 my husband and I relocated from San Francisco to Chattanooga Tennessee and couldn't be happier with the decision. I currently work for Trip Advisor as an International Assignments Photo Editor and while I occasionally go on assignment as a photographer I stay busy stateside studying French and stripping wallpaper. 

My husband and I currently have 3 doors andwill be looking for our next purchase in November of 2019. 


I have extensive personal and professional experience in Latin America which includes the motorcycle trip 'Autopista End' my now husband and I took from San Francisco to Tierra Del Fuego Argentina in the 2013 to 2014 season. 

My hobbies include: travel, reading, cooking and motorcycles.
