Alex Vidal hosts a real estate show called “TheCloserClub,” where he interviews some of the country’s top real estate professionals, athletes, celebrity entrepreneurs and politicians. The show has had over 1 million views.
“The biggest risk you can take is never taking one,” says Vidal. “I continued my show while no one believed in it. Now everyone loves the show!”
In 2019, Vidal finalized his partnership in RelatedISG International Realty and launched new initiatives to help agents thrive in a business that is constantly growing and changing. He also received the REALTOR® Advocate of the Year award from the Miami Association of REALTORS®.
Vidal started out in the real estate business 22 years ago, at age 19, as an assistant to the owner of Keyes Real Estate, one of the largest real estate companies in Florida. He has held leadership positions that included recruiting director, sales coach, sales manager, agent and president and has worked for Prudential Real Estate in Florida, Colorado and California and for ERA Real Estate in Florida.
Since taking over as president of RelatedISG International Realty in 2014, Vidal has focused on turning boutique brokerages with small numbers of agents into powerhouse agencies with hundreds of REALTORS®. He has led the company through explosive growth, and it now has over 560 REALTORS® in six offices throughout Dade and Broward Counties and almost a half-billion dollars in sales volume.
