Ratings & Reviews

Alex shows a level of dedication and knowledge that is unsurpassed. This is the 2nd time my wife have hired Alex. He helped us find the perfect condo in 2010. When my family needed a larger space, we again turned to Alex. He was able to find a buyer and negotiate the sale of our condo within a week. He also found us the perfect place to move into, with everything we needed, at the perfect price. <br/><br/>I could not image working with another real estate professional.

Bought a home in 2014 in Maplewood, Malden, MA 02148.

Alex has been a real pleasure to work with. I just closed on my first home purchase today thanks to Alex and his remarkable expertise in the entire process from start to finish.

I first found Alex on Zillow when I was trying to schedule an appointment to view a property in Malden MA. A number or agents contacted me however Alex stood out as someone who is helpful, prompt and very responsive in answering all kinds of questions that I had. Being a first time home buyer, I did some researching online on the homebuying process but Alex has the experience and know-how of different scenario to always help me make the best decision.

Alex is not pushy and will not suggest something that is in his best interest and I find him to always act in my (the buyer's) best interest. He is also extremely patient in allowing me space and time to view properties whenever there is something that catches my attention.

When the time came to put in an offer, Alex was able to showcase his effective negotiation skills to cut 10% off the listing price. I must make a disclaimer that it might be a different outcome with your property as any negotiation has many levers to pull and in my situation, Alex was able to do so. In addition, Alex was able to successfully negotiated for the seller to cover all closing cost based on findings from home inspection. Again, this is specific to this account however it is not short of impressive that he was able to pull it off.

All in all, great guy and a very knowledgeable real estate professional. I've heard and read horror stories on first time home buyers but Alex just made it completely painless and I would not hesitate to recommend him to my close friends who are looking to purchase a property in the Somerville, Cambridge, Medford and Malden areas. I know who I'm getting to represent me on my next real estate transaction.

Showed home in 2013 in West Somerville, Somerville, MA 02144.

Alex is greeat to work with. I would especially highlight the fact that he is the number one go to guy for purchasing a home in the Davis - Porter - Teele - Union areas, which are wicked sick markerts right now (as in growing and improving at an exceptional rate)! He finds the listings as soon as they come out and gets you out in front of the pack so you can be in a competitive position. He is very responsive, text, email, call, all that.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Somerville, MA.

Alex was my broker on a recent home sale in the Somerville, MA area. From pre-sales conversations about selling to closing the sale on my 3-bedroom single family home, Alex exhibited a high level of professionalism, quick responsiveness, and strong willingness to help throughout the property listing and home sales process. I moved out of state prior to closing on the sale of the home, and Alex's support was critical to ensuring the home was properly maintained and kept in good condition in my absence.

Alex is a great broker to partner with, and I recommend him without reservation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Stoneham, MA.

We were so fortunate that Alex was our agent in buying our first house! Alex was extremely responsive and always available to us. He truly made us feel like we were the only clients he was working with.

He always gave his honest opinion while we were looking at homes and was never pushy. He didn't just show us houses, but guided us throughout the whole process beginning to end. It took us almost 5 months to find our home due to low inventory on the market and high competition, but Alex was by our side every step of the way.

Alex also referred us to a lender who gave us excellent rates. If you're looking for a real estate agent, 100% go with Alex. It will be the best decision you make as a home buyer.

Sold a home in 2015.

Alex demonstrated experience and knowledge right from the start. This was certainly one of the most important factors for us deciding to work with him although there were several others. He was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the entire process and his quickness in responding was very comforting being first time home buyers. Alex was definitely on our side, on our team, doing everything he could to get the close to happen on time. Alex is sincere; he will give you his point of view always. If we were concerned about something, so was he, and he’d take action, follow up, etc to make sure we were happy. We would recommend Alex to anyone looking to find a property in the Boston area (and surrounding areas) without any hesitation whatsoever. On top of all that, he’s very nice and a fun person to be around. He’s the best!

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Newburyport, MA.

Alex Genovese was a very responsive, knowledgeable, efficient realtor. He made the purchase of our home a positive and smooth experience. I felt comfortable that Alex always had our best interest in mind whenever he advised us about any part of the process from the offer, to the purchase and sale, to the closing. He was able to answer all of our questions quickly. Alex worked really hard to get us exactly what we wanted. Using electric signatures, he was able to turn the many documents involved in purchasing a house incredibly fast. We were able to move into our home within 6 weeks of first seeing it! Alex went above and beyond my expectations of what a realtor would do for us. I would highly recommend Alex and Flow Realty to anyone purchasing a home.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $650K in Winchester, MA.

Alex helped us find our dream home. He was truly fantastic to work with. We started out looking casually to learn the market with no rush to move. From the start, he was always extremely responsive, courteous, knowledgeable and never pushed us to make a move that didn't feel right. He got to know us personally and really understand what we wanted and needed. This was very different from home buying experiences I had in the PAST where I was treated as just another commission in the stack.

We ultimately found a great home we love and Alex helped us navigate from negotiation to closing with no issues. We could not be happier with the outcome!

Bought a home in 2014 in North Cambridge, Cambridge, MA 02140.

Alex is fantastic overall, and I really enjoyed working with him as a 1st time buyer!

He is easy to work with and very effective, clearly someone who knows what he is doing. Very patient and responsive throughout the entire purchasing process for us as a 1st time buyer. He assisted us to prepare the offer letter in a very speedy manner (saw the apartment and submitted the offer within a few hours, negotiated with the seller agent and had a revised offer accepted all in 1 day), which allowed us to get a property we loved before the seller agent had time to go through the open house planned for the weekend and avoided potential bidding war situation in a pretty competitive market and area.

He is well-connected, always made himself available, recommended various other parties to work with and orchestrated the process. At one point, there was a glitch in my experience with the lender and he took responsibility personally to mediate the challenging situation, ensuring an overall positive experience for me which I really appreciated.

I look forward to working with Alex again when we buy/sell our next property.

Showed home in 2014 in Maplewood, Malden, MA 02148.

Very helpful in scheduling a private showing. Explained the possibilities of loan payments and process step-by-step. Even presented me the printed copies of monthly payment in case if I wanted to buy the home.

Thanks much.
