The Story of Alex Corona

What if I told you a story about a kid whose father is wanted for murder? A story where this kid would have never been born had he been caught. A kid who by 13 years old was out of control and starting to follow in his fathers footsteps. And by the age of 15 this ultimately led to a life on the streets with nothing to eat. The conclusion of this story to most would be all so very predictable. Yet his burning desire would choose otherwise. His dynamic personality, humor for life, contagious energy, and love for business is how Alex Corona steers Corona Realty Group into being one of the most fastest growing small real estate companies around. 


Alex Corona and Jaime Birks are one of the most successful real estate teams in the South Side. Alex has been involved in all aspects of real estate from assisting in securing financing to flipping homes. Alex’s life occurrences have made him extremely resourceful and with his well-rounded experience in all areas of the industry, he prides himself on being a one-stop shop for buyers and sellers. Alex is known for giving his clients the VIP treatment. With over a decade of experience and huge personal success in the real estate game, Alex has made Corona Realty Group a household name. Corona’s ability to listen and understand his clients needs has allowed him to continuously achieve his client’s goals and exceed their expectations. His unique background allows him to connect with everyone young or old and from diverse backgrounds of their own. His personable and professional character allows him to build and maintain long lasting relationships. This is exactly how his business has grown, primarily from referrals and repeat customers. 

Despite Alex’s busy schedule, he still finds the time to give back to his community. Corona is very passionate about volunteering his time and money to support many charities and youth sports teams. Corona has coached his eldest son’s baseball team for the past 7 years. This year achieving victory with the 12U, placing 3rd place in the Frankfort sizzle. 


The Corona couples motto is to think “outside the box” at all times by always finding the right solution for the problem. With years of sales negotiating experience they are master negotiators. They specialize in listings working hard with sellers to sell their property. They incorporate a standard of marketing every time that most realtors strive to touch on. Every home they list receives professional photography as well as a 4k Drone video of the house and neighborhood. Each property is highlighted with a virtual tour so potential buyers can check out the floor plan & walk the property from the internet.


It is no wonder how Alex Corona has created such an intense following. His experiences have enabled him to see eye to eye with the public but his innovative aspiration is why he is constantly utilizing the most effective tools in his practice. At a critical moment in his life, Alex Corona decided he was destined for greatness. And the path that Corona Realty Group is on proves to be just that.
