Alexzandra Geyerman knows that greatness doesn’t always come from following a common path. She believes that success tags right along behind choosing happiness every day and knowing when to bend the rules.
Entrepreneurialism runs in her family. Her great-great-great grandfather founded the first Geyerman’s General Mercantile in 1852 and from age 13, Alexz spent her weekends sorting hangers and folding Alfred Dunner slacks at the Mitchell, SD store 150 years later. She remembers the old, tattered lion poster hanging above the staircase leading to the employee break room – “The customer is always king”. That Midwest mindset survived six generations, and remains the groundwork for each venture Geyerman encounters.
Before graduating with an Audio Engineering degree from The Institute of Production and Recording in Minneapolis, Alexz taste-tested a future in ultrasound technology, radio, marketing and design. Her love of music and adventure inspired a spontaneous move to Nashville in 2010, and after spending 3 years working in a 911 dispatch center, she landed her first sales job on Music Row.
While her positive attitude and work ethic comes from her mom, Alexz gets her sense of courage from her father who spent years piloting hot-air balloons. Aside from drinking champagne from red Solo cups after each safe flight, her favorite tradition was the blessing recited prior to each launch. Although The Hot-Air Balloonist’s Prayer preserves a mysterious origin, its sanguine wish is also relevant to the big-picture version of how she imagines a successful journey:
May the winds welcome you with softness,
May the sun bless you with his warm hands,
May you fly so high and so well that God joins you in laughter
and sets you gently back into the loving arms of Mother Earth.
Alexz would love the opportunity to meet with you regarding any real estate or auction related needs you may have in and around the Nashville area. Reach her directly at (605) 999-7179, or by email at Ageyerman@soldoncompass.com.
