"Alex is a great realtor and great person. He has so much knowledge, he is thoughtful, he cares about his clients, he is generous with his time, and he just has a kind peaceful way about him. Not only did Alex do an amazing job selling our house in 2 days but he has a team that is superb! They are extremely professional, efficient, and they all refect the calm and caring attributes that Alex demonstrates. We are past clients of Alex and we would not use any other broker. He really is the best."

"Alex Gandel is the most knowledgeable and professional agent I have known. Alex represented us in buying our current house in 2009, and we consider him our friend. Currently he’s helping us with our next purchase. With Alex we found what we were looking in an agent: peace of mind, and knowledge that the transaction will be handled extremely proficiently without us getting involved in, and worrying about the details. We greatly appreciate Alex’s and his team’s handling of this sale and will definitely use their services in future, and recommend them to our friends."

"Once again, Alex and Staff did a great job for us. The purchase process went smoothly after Alex found us a great house. We love it, but if we ever decide to sell it, Alex will be the Realtor we call."
I would like to say Alex did a great job for me with my desire to do a 1031 exchange. Alex sold the house I wanted to sell in 3 days, was very pleased of course, next step, we found a house I wanted, in a more desirable area at a fair price, I liked the house and bought that house. The best surprise for me was the very smooth process to move all the paper work through the proper channels in a timely period, Alex and staff made sure everything was done properly and smoothly, I highly recommend Alex Gandel for your real estate needs.
"We had never met Alex Gandel but he was highly recommended by our property manager. We live out of state and after talking to him by phone, we felt that our listing was with the right broker. Alex has a good marketing plan, excellent photographer and great staff that goes above and beyond. Any challenges that came up were dealt with and we can't thank him enough. He treated us like family. We would deal with him again - he has hero status in our book!!"
Mr. Alex Gandel is a very knowledgeable, polite and professional agent. There are many real estate agents in the area but what makes him better than the rest in the area is the fact that he gives lot of effort in each and every listing he has to sell. When we met him for the first time, we were extremely impressed by the amount of research he had already put in to know the value of our house and the additional information needed to sell. He was very informative as well. He comes across as a very calm person who exactly knows what he is doing and confident about it as well. He is a marketing machine and once our house was in the market, he left no stone unturned to advertise our listing! We thank Alex and his team from the bottom of our heart and will use his services in future as well and recommend him to our friends in the area. We wish Alex and his team the very best in their future endeavors.
