Past Satisfied Real Estate Clients and Associates
Below are just a sample of comments from satisfied clients and associates from when I was a licensed real estate agent in Florida:
From Andy G. - Real Estate Investor and 1st time Home Buyer
“I am an Executive Chef aboard a ship and used to be out of the country for 6 months of every year. I told Alex what I wanted out of my transactions and he took care of everything all the way to closing on my properties. He has integrity and does things by the book....he gave sound advice and guidance all the way. He told me all my options and helped me make good decisions in my real estate transactions. I will be sticking with Alex in all my real estate investments; he helped me buy my primary residence plus rental units I am purchasing in the future."
Jason and Candace Kendall - Home Owners Relocating out of state
"Alex is compassionate about his work and his clients. He listed our home expeditiously and took beautiful pictures of our home to show it in the best possible light. He wasted no time getting people into the home to look at it and a contract was discussed within the first week. When he presented the home, he did it with excitement; he was not pushy, but when push came to shove, he came through."
Mr. and Mrs. Germain - First Time Home Buyers
“Alex helped us find a new home and walked us through the whole process. He respected our needs, calmed our fears and kept us excited about our new home; he was patient, treated us with kindness, and was a hard worker. Alex is our number one Realtor and we have recommended him to friends and relatives.“
Ryan Wanecek - Assistant Manager at Donatos Pizza
"I met Alex one year ago at work when I first moved to the central Florida area. He started to talk to me about real estate as he was waiting for his pizza and I knew with my bad credit I couldn't get a home anytime soon. He took my phone number and e-mail address anyway even though I didn't have good credit. Alex kept in touch with me from time to time and just when I need the help He called to see how things were and I told him I needed a home to rent with my room mates because we were having no luck finding a good place to move into on our own. He stepped up and found us a great home that day when my room mates and I were starting to think about renting an apartment. He saved us from the struggles of apartment living." (They lived on the third floor of an apartment complex --- talk about lugging furniture up and down stairs -- I personally helped them move!!).
Gabriel Silverstein - Angelic Real Estate
"A man serious about his walk with God who is also excellent at both the real estate business and at web marketing...and who readily shares his knowledge with those who want to learn. Truly a role model for this world."
Sandra Walta - Real Estate Agent
"THANKS A LOT for all your help! You are one of the reasons I LOVE this business. You went out of your way to help me and I really appreciate it. People like you will succeed in this business. You have a big heart. You are the first one I will call if I have someone who needs a home. "
Angela Santana - Century 21
"Thank you so much for your help Alex; you are a great help! Being a fellow Realtor® we would be considered competition, but not for Alex! He helps out everyone who needs it and has a great wealth of information to share with those who ask. I see you have some great gifts and you do share them. In this field, a good mentor is really hard to find, thanks again!!! "
