Alex Corey has a vibrant and diverse life both within and outside of his career at HET. When it comes to PRIDE activities and events, Alex has a few favourites that he looks forward to supporting each year. One of them is the Pride & Remembrance Run, which combines fitness and community spirit in a memorable way. He also seeks out unique programming organized by Heritage Toronto and The ArQuives, which provide enriching experiences during the Pride celebrations that look back on the community’s history while charting a path forward.
When it comes to socializing and supporting local, Alex has a couple of go-to spots that he loves. Cabbagetown’s House on Parliament holds a special place in his heart, offering a welcoming atmosphere within a historic setting where you’re bound to run into someone you know. Further afield in Leaside you might catch him picking up some guilty pleasures at Craig’s Cookies for a post-run treat.
But it’s not just about enjoying the vibrant social scene and PRIDE events for Alex. He is passionate about giving back to the community and supporting organizations that make a difference. That’s why he is particularly drawn to the LGBT Youthline and actively fundraises for it. Having personally utilized the Youthline as a teenager, Alex recognizes the importance of this confidential, supportive, and judgment-free network for LGBT youth across Ontario. He knows firsthand that not all young people have access to traditional support systems, making the services provided by Youthline even more crucial.
Beyond his work as a real estate agent, Alex has a range of interests and hobbies that keep him engaged. His passion for architecture and design, nurtured through years of studying and working in the field, continues to inspire him. He also has a keen interest in history, recognizing the significance of the past in shaping the present and future of our city.
In his free time, Alex enjoys honing his culinary skills, more comfortable in the kitchen than at the table and is always eager to host. Stepping outside he finds solace in running, not only for the physical benefits but also for the mental clarity it provides.
Born in Etobicoke and raised in the picturesque neighbourhoods of Moore Park & Rosedale, his journey to the world of real estate was not a direct one. With a background in architecture, heritage conservation, and city planning spanning over a decade, Alex seamlessly transitioned into the real estate industry, bringing a wealth of knowledge and a bringing a unique perspective to his work.
