Civic Involvement

After witnessing the collapse of the 35W bridge at the age of 17, Alex volunteered by helping the kids in the school bus get to safety, and distributed food to rescue workers until 3:00 AM that night. It was this moment that made Alex realize that being active in one’s own community is essential not only for self fulfillment, but also for making your community stronger. That is why Alex is on the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and the Environmental Board in Lino Lakes, Minnesota.


Alex studied at the University of Minnesota and received a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development; as well as Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior. Alexander Schwartz holds a  belief that a broad understanding of a topic leads to greater clarity of the subject. This belief has been the driving force through University as well as in his real estate career. The extensive mathematical and biological experience in University helped him to better analyze the real estate market and view the market much like an intricate biological system.
