I most admire buildings that place equal emphasis on form and function.

Alex Muir loves tall buildings. Matter of fact, he lives in one.
In the office, he’s seen as quiet, methodical, dedicated, and deeply analytical. Away from the office, another Alex comes alive. To friends and family, he’s known for his urban lifestyle (he lives Downtown), fashion flair (check out the shoes), and passion for sports (“Go Mariners”).
As a student at the University of Washington, Alex became highly interested in economics, architecture, and urban planning. So after graduation, Alex joined JLL. There, he worked as a research analyst focusing on Seattle and Bellevue real estate. He says, “Research provided a great foundation for me. I was essentially paid to study the market and educate others for the first five years of my commercial real estate career.”
Today, Alex is working to help build Kinzer’s capital markets business. He specializes in investment advisory services for offices and land development sites. His particular focus is on disposition in the $5-100 million range and strategic acquisition for both private and institutional clients.
Alex has traveled extensively, and he loves visiting cities where buildings can tell hundreds of years of a country’s history.
Another of his passions? Helping others in the community, especially the underrepresented. His long-term goal is to create opportunities for young people, and he consistently works to advance diversity and inclusion in Seattle’s workforce.
