The Young Real Estate Professionals is excited to have Alex Samoylovich, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of CEDARst a vertically integrated multi-family organization and the Co-CEO of Livly, a software platform for multi-family buildings at our next virtual speaker event on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 from Noon to 1:00pm central time.

Through intuitive and modern software, Livly enables next- level convenience for residents and staff, streamlines property and community management, and creates tremendous value for property owners. Originally starting out as a real estate entrepreneur, Alex co-founded FLATS alongside it’s holding company, CEDARst companies in Chicago. FLATS is a national multi-family brand that has ushered a new standard of lifestyle living and community expectation. Over Alex’s 18-year career, he has developed 8,000 apartment units, established a niche strategy for adaptive reuse of assets, and is a pioneer of the micro-unit development movement. Today, Alex is focused on driving innovative concepts in both the physical and digital real estate spaces.

Alex is the founding partner, Chief Executive Officer of CEDARst Companies. Over the past eighteen years, Mr. Samoylovich has sourced, invested in and managed in excess of hundreds of transactions and has been instrumental in the acquisition and disposition of real estate with a value in over $2 billion.

Utilizing a “fully integrated real estate development” (IRED) approach, Mr. Samoylovich and his partners have seamlessly interwoven acquisition, construction, finance, management, interior design and marketing under one company. In the past 15 years, CEDARst is considered one of the most active acquirers of distressed assets in the greater Chicago area.

Under Mr. Samoylovich’s leadership, the company has carved out a niche strategy for the adaptive reuse of underperforming assets through bankruptcies, foreclosure, note purchases, and other distressed situations in the Chicago area; covering a span of product types from multifamily, office, mixed-use, and hospitality. Mr. Samoylovich has cemented a well-earned reputation as a tenacious deal maker capable of closing the most complex and demanding real estate transactions and returning superior risk adjusted returns to his investors.

Prior to entering real estate, Mr. Samoylovich was an accomplished equity and options trader. During this time, he developed a keen understanding of market psychology and timing which he forayed into a successful “short” strategy in residential real estate just prior to the recession. Mr. Samoylovich attended DePaul University and is currently a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) and the Economic Club of Chicago (ECC). In 2016, he was named one of Crain’s 40 Under 40.
