Bought a home in 2013 in Campus Area (University District), Albany, NY 12206.
The service I experienced from Carmello, Harold and all his staff was excellent. They have truly restored my faith in realtors and do plan on working with them in the future to make some more investments.I highly recommend them.
I am writing to express my pleasure with real estate agent Carmelo Gines, who was my representing agent in the sale of my two-family home. The home was located in a less than desirable neighborhood as several of the homes in the neighborhood had become rundown and abandoned over the years, or sold for well under the market value. This made it more difficult to sell my home. However, with Carmelo and his teams’ expertise, support and guidance, the short sale process was a breeze.
Carmelo, and his team, guided me through the entire process and more often than not took charge of matters, from completing bank documentation, communicating with buyers/agents, lawyers, contractors, inspectors, and more. I give credit to Carmelo and the CKM team for my smooth, stress-free home-selling experience. Thanks to Carmelo’s well-placed advertisements and his accurate assessment of the proper asking price, I was able to sell my home in a very short amount of time.
In closing, Carmelo went above and beyond the call of duty to complete any transactions related to the sale of my property. He was always available and spent many nights and weekends working on this sale. I have been nothing but pleased with his expertise and my overall experience. I highly recommend Carmelo Gines and the CKM team to friends and family members whenever there is a need for a competent and qualified agent.
Working with Carmelo Gines was a pleasure. His professional photographs let our listing capture the true beauty of our house, and showcased the isolation that made the property appealing to us. We had been working with another realtor for 6 months with no action before switching to Carmelo, and within a week he got us an offer, and without dropping the price first! (All the other realtors we'd interviewed wanted us to go much lower for our starting listing.) I give all the credit to his wonderful listing. Throughout the closing process Carmelo and his team made things move as smoothly as possible for us. We were selling from out of town, and they were wonderful about checking up on the property, arranging inspections and repairs, and advocating for our interests when dealing with the buyers' agents. The capital knowledge team was wonderful about keeping us up to date on the status of the listing, and would contact us whenever anything happened, or even if there was no change but we hadn't heard from them in a while. I never had to worry that they'd forgotten about us. Every time I tried to contact them, someone got back to me very quickly. Overall the entire team was very professional and wonderful to work with. I always felt like they had our best interests at heart, and were in this to make us the best deal they could, not just to get a commission. I would recommend Carmelo and his team to anyone selling a house in the capital district!
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $100K in Schenectady, NY.
I would like to say that you have a wonderful staff in Schenectady, NY. Mr. Harold M. Baldwin was the realtor assigned to me. He was very professional and courteous. I had a price range and was looking for something with very little maintenance. Mr. Baldwin showed me a few houses in the Mt. Pleasant area that were to my liking, but the one house that I ended up purchasing is as close to a dream home that I can imagine. I am very pleased with the work that Mr Baldwin put forth with showing me such a beautiful property. I personally told Mr. Baldwin that if I were to look for another property that I would love for him to be my realtor once again. I can't stress enough about how motivated he was, and how easy he made it to search for a home. I would like to recommend Mr. Baldwin to anyone looking to purchase a home now or in the near future. Thank you Harold for showing me and my family a wonderful home in which we look forward to making many memories to cherish.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Schenectady, NY.
There were many bumps along the road and this team always remained professional, supportive and right on top of things. It is because of Mr. Baldwin and Mr. Gines that I have the home of my dreams. They worked deligiently at all hours to make this happen. It was an emotional journey for me as they assisted in selling the home that I raised my family in and finding this home that I could retire in peacefully and they were always there to keep me focused and happy.
Working with Carmelo made buying a home a positive experience. I was one of those "needy" buyers, looking for advice and reassurance that I was making a smart decision. Carmelo worked with me from start to finish, greatly relieving my homebuyer's anxiety. I have since referred two friends to him and they are very happy with the results. I would recommend Carmelo, without reservation, to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Honesty and Integrity are hard to find; Carmelo delivers.

I have known Carmelo for at least 9 years so it wasn't a hard decision to make when choosing a realtor to help sell our home. He came in, look at our home, made very helpful suggestions on what we should do and not do, contacted a photographer to come in and photograph the home to make it very appealing to anyone looking to buy in our area and in the price range. He is very thorough and his follow-up on phone calls, questions and everything is very commendable. Our home sold very very fast!
He also went the extra mile in accompanying us to the builder of the condo that we purchased to make sure everything was as we wanted and chose.
I would highly recommend Carmelo for anyone wishing to sell their home.
