Get to know Alex Gandel
Alex Gandel, #1 Agent Simi Valley 1996-2016 with C21 Troop Real Estate and #7 Agent Nationwide with Century 21 in 2016, based in Simi Valley, California, is celebrating 37 years in Real Estate. Of those 37 years, Alex has been with C21 Troop Real Estate for 22 years and has consistently earned the most prestigious awards for his top production and professional excellence. As a seasoned veteran, Alex has represented clientele in a vast array of price ranges and transactions. He attributes his success to his “glass half full” approach in his business and personal life which enables him to continue to help a multitude of people throughout all of Ventura County and the San Fernando Valley, from First Time Home Buyers and Sellers to Estate Level Buyers and Sellers.
In April of 2016 Troop Real Estate took a giant leap forward and partnered with CENTURY 21® LLC with great expectations to continue what they have been accomplishing for years: delivering a remarkable customer experience and creating an affinity and trust with our clients. Alex Gandel is excited to offer a wide array of consumer-centric products, services, and technology merged with his 360 Degree High Impact Marketing Plan.
In 2013 Alex’s son, Brad Gandel, joined forces with Alex, working as a fellow Realtor. Brad states he is “learning from the best!” Welles Miller, Alex’s Transaction Coordinator, has been with him since 2001 and is an insightful and informative catalyst who helps Alex expertly guide his clients through the sometimes challenging escrow and closing process. Cheryl Clayton has been with Alex since 2011 and works as his Marketing Director and Buyer’s Agent and is a passionate centric force to the driving energy behind Alex’s proven and successful High Impact 360 Degree Marketing Plan. Both Welles and Cheryl are fully licensed, insured, experienced agents who have been actively working in Real Estate for over 20 years. Alex calls this group “magical.” Together, with Alex’s keen insight and guidance, this magical team works with a mindset to continually “raise the bar” in service, communication, follow-through, creativity, perseverance and excellence.
Alex Gandel and Staff are a combination of the best of both worlds: Working with the largest independent Real Estate Company in Ventura County, C21 Troop Real Estate, as well as offering a “Boutique-Style” personal concierge service to their clients. Their clients never feel like another statistic or number. Alex Gandel and Staff are highly skilled, friendly, experienced and successful in working with standard Real Estate transactions as well as a variety of challenging circumstances, such as divorce, short sale hardship, contingent sellers with a home of choice, relocation clients and investors. By virtue of Alex’s longstanding professional reputation, he also receives many referrals from Realtors out of the area. The experience and camaraderie of Alex Gandel and Staff goes beyond the ordinary! Often, their keen insight, experience and knowledge will guide them to proactively address details before they become a problem. This type of service is invaluable to Alex’s clients!
In addition to being a Top Producing Real Estate Agent and business professional, Alex is a devoted family man, married to his wife, Janet for 28 years, and serves his community in a couple of different capacities such as volunteering on the Advisory Board of the Simi Valley Boys and Girls Club as well as the Simi Valley Hospital Foundation Board. Alex is also the Founder and Chairman of the annual Troop Turkey-a-Thon, feeding thousands of qualified people a Thanksgiving dinner throughout Ventura County every year.
In 2016 Alex Gandel closed 80 transactions totaling over $52 million in sales. Alex has also been a guest speaker in prestigious venues such as the 2015 OnQ Top Producers Panel in Ventura County and the 2014 Real Live Top Agent Panel at the Skirball Center.

"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.
We met Alex at an Open House in Simi Valley and were impressed and decided we wanted him to represent us in the sale of our home in Thousand Oaks and the purchase of a new home in Simi Valley. Alex and his team were there for us 24/7 through the entire time of preparing our home for sale and finding our new home that we absolutely love! They went above and beyond to serve our needs. They were all such a joy to work with and we would recommend them highly to anyone who is thinking of selling or buying a home.
Alex and his staff made our sale and buying a house, as easy and stress free as possible. Welles is so easy to work with and always available.
Alex is professional, informed, gets the job done and I consider him my friend!
Welles did a great job of final closing.
Alex was instrumental in getting house remodeled. His Contractors did a excellent job.
I have used Alex for purchase of home a few years ago and would use him again if the occasion arose. He has the ability and knowledge to make sales happen.
