Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Debary, FL.
Extremely helpful and successful in the short sale process. I had a friend who recommended him and I see why. I could not ask for anyone better to assist in the short sale process and I will be reaching out to Alan when the time is to buy again. I would recommend Alan to anyone whom needs to sell or purchase a home. Alan will be there around the clock to assist in getting the job done and answer any questions you may have. Alan also has a very strong team around him that supports Alan in delivering the product that he is promising.
Alan helped me find a condo and then sell my home in Seminole County, FL. He has been extremely helpful in the search process and in working with other realtors to conclude the sales of both properties. His firm and staff are professional, helpful and friendly. Alan always promptly responded to my questions and concerns and resolved any issues as soon as possible. I'd highly recommend his firm and Alan for your real estate needs in the Central Florida area.
I was an absentee owner and Alan was able to make the selling process easy. He made excellent recommendations for getting my property in order and oversaw necessary activities in my stead. He kept me fully in the loop. I was very pleased with my results and would highly recommend him.
Alan is one of the most trusted and hard working agents in the entire area. I have used him for 3 real estate deals. I have never been disappointed. He always negotiates for me to get the best deal and conditions. He puts the clients needs above all else. He does his very best to find exactly what you are looking for. He is knowledgeable and friendly. He is someone I would highly recommend.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Altamonte Springs, FL.
Our experience with Alan was great. He stayed with us from listing through sale and actually beyond sale to questions the buyer had after sale. Alan is a true and honest professional and we would highly recommend him.
After accepting a new position, we had to relocate to Florida from Indiana very quickly. Alan took his entire Memorial Day weekend to show us houses in a variety of different neighborhoods and surrounding towns. He even had umbrellas at the ready when the rain came down.
We were looking for a waterfront property with a sizeable house that didn't need a lot of renovating. Alan found us the perfect home and helped us negotiate a great deal. With Alan's help, we were able to acquire our home and move in within a month. Alan was there on moving day to assure everthing went smooth and assisted us in FAXing the paperwork necessary to close the sale of our home up north.
Overall it was a great experience and we couldn't have asked for it to go any better. Alan's easy going nature, kindness, knowledge and ability to get things done made everything go very smoothly.
I first retained Alan Salerno to sell my dwelling at Majestic Oak Drive, Altamonte Springs, Florida in 2004. He was able to do so quickly and for the full price I insisted upon. He dealt with all the advertising, showings (and pestering by me) without complaint and as a true professional. The amount and standard of the brochures and advertising was impressive.
I then retained Alan to purchase the Condo on Osceola Avenue. Again, his help in everything was invaluable. Sometime in 2010 or 2011 upon deciding to relocate back to a Single Family Home, I again retained Alan to sell the Condo. Unfortunately, due to the market downturn, selling at any price proved to be very difficult. On Alan's advice, we held out for our original purchase price back in 2004. It was a successful decision and we eventually received that amount which was over $200,000 greater than other Units in the complex had been sold for and were currently for sale. Slightly different from ours, but not appreciably so. I have no hesitation in recommending Alan to anyone and everyone to assist them in either buying a home, selling their home, or both.
Mr. Salerno has the integrity, market knowledge and negotiating skills that we look for in a realtor and rarely find. He has assisted us on both the selling and buying sides of numerous transactions, and we wholeheartedly recommend him and plan to utilize his services in the future. In addition to having the technical skills necessary, he is a pleasure to work with. He isn't afraid to provide information that might impact a transaction if he feels that the information is important for his client to know. In other words, Alan builds relationships with his clients, and he isn't just a transactional realtor looking for a one-time fee. His negotiating and people skills are second to none as well. He is the best in the business in the Central Florida area!
In my dealings with Mr. Salerno I found him to be very respectful, honest and very hard working for me and my family. He always kept us informed on the matter at hand. I highly recommend Mr. Salerno to anyone interested in a real estate purchase.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Altamonte Springs, FL.
I could not imagine a better person to work with on the purchase of our home than Alan. He took all of our wants and needs and translated them into showings that best matched exactly what we were looking for. He made himself available for us around the clock and worked tirelessly to get us into our dream home within our aggressive schedule. I would greatly recommend Alan for anybody needing to go through the home buying experience here in Florida. He really took care of us as his customers and was dedicated to ensuring our satisfaction. Great job Alan and team and we look forward to working with you in future if the possibility presents itself.
