Alena Dzirouskaya

Finance & Operations Director

The commercial real estate market is a thrill ride for me. It is a very dynamic, ever-changing environment, leaving no room for complacency.

I like to think of my job as similar to that of a clock tower watchman where an intricate device of constantly moving gears and cogs needs to be continually maintained to ensure its precise and dependable operation. My job here at Capital Pacific is to provide the brokers and staff with all of the tools they need to stay on track. To the greatest extent possible, their focus needs to be on giving our clients the top quality service that we are known for. 

My career at Capital Pacific began after my husband and I made the executive decision to move to the Bay Area from Los Angeles. I bring extensive finance experience from working in private wealth management for over 10 years.

What do you love about working at Capital Pacific?

It is a pleasure to work side by side with people who exhibit that rare combination of confidence and professionalism. It is a perfect environment for someone like me who values competence as one of the most admirable qualities a business person can possess. I cherish both the responsibility and satisfaction of knowing that my contribution here at Capital Pacific is essential to the operations and financial well-being of the company. It inspires me to be even more pro-active and daring in pursuit of our vision of excellence.

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned?

In a world where you can be anything, be kind.

What’s your secret to an ultra-productive day?

I always strive to stay organized and even when I’m really busy, I try hard to find small pockets of time to unwind, even if it's five minutes for a cup of coffee. I find these spots of energy can be helpful to recharge. First thing in the morning, I make sure all the high priority items are completed so that I can then focus on the important but not urgent items. I get an extra boost of energy knowing that the important items are dealt with.
