Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Delmar, NY.
My husband and I were buying our first house in the Albany area. Alex came highly recommended by family and friends. At the time, we were living across the country and I flew in for a few days to go house hunting. Alex devoted several days to driving me from house to house. I was very impressed by his knowledge and professionalism. He did an excellent job at listening to what I wanted and constantly refined our search to make the most out of the little time I had. He stayed focused, but was very flexible and accommodating with last minute schedule changes. I never felt pushed or pressured and I am 100% satisfied with both his service and the home we found. He also helped me get connected into the community once we arrived. I would give him 6 stars if I could. I am happy to have met him and will never use another realtor. I would recommend him to anyone buying a house in the Albany area.

Bought a home in 2014.
Alex Monticello was exceptionally helpful throughout the entire process of buying our home. He was consistently professional, detail oriented, patient and honest.

Alex showed us dozens of homes including brownstones and one family houses in multiple neighborhoods in the Capital Region over the course of a year before we finally decided to make an offer on a home. When we first started working with Alex, we had not yet made a decision on whether to buy or rent our next home. Throughout the process, Alex never pressured us to buy and he showed us a level of responsiveness and availability that many agents would have reserved for more active buyers.

Additionally, as first time homebuyers, we entered our search with very limited knowledge of the process of buying a home. Alex went above and beyond to share his expertise on home buying, valuation and negotiation. He did not hold back when he noticed both positive and negative details of each of the homes we visited, and he was able to point out potentially expensive repairs that we may not have otherwise been aware of.

Alex found the home we ultimately purchased the day that it came on the market. Without his assertiveness, we may never have found our home. We are extremely happy with our experience working with Alex and we are very grateful for his help.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Albany, NY.
Alex helped us find our first home in Albany, NY. As new home buyers, there was a lot we needed to learn about the process and the Albany market. Alex patiently walked us through every step. He was honest, reliable, quick to respond to us, and best of all, an expert in the Albany market. He knew what was available, understood what we wanted, and helped guide us to the best property for our budget and needs. We could not have been more pleased to work with him. I would recommend him to anyone buying a home in the Albany area.

Bought a home in 2014.
Alex is a genuine professional and his first priority is making sure his clients are getting a fair deal. He is a smart, trustworthy businessman who has built a strong network for his agency in the Albany region suitable for any buyer’s real estate goals. Alex took extra care in making our first home purchase an educational experience, ensuring that we were confident with our decisions at every stage of the home buying process. He is very knowledgeable about the current real estate market in the capital region, and when he didn’t have the exact answer for a question he found the information we needed quick and efficiently. It was refreshing to work with a professional willing to work hard and get the job done right. I have no reservations recommending Alex’s services; I will be seeking his help for my future real estate investments. Do not pass up the opportunity to work with Alex – you will not regret it!

Bought a home in 2014.
Alex is undoubtably professional, passionate and holds an incredible work ethic. A few years back I bought a property without Alex as my agent. Just recently, I purchased my second property, a two family in downtown Albany, with Alex representing me. THE DIFFERENCE WAS CLEAR. Alex took the time to fully understand what I was looking for, which at times I was even unsure of. He is patient and very resourceful. I can confidently say that I found my dream home (within my budget) because of Alex's help.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Center Square, Albany, NY.
We recently sold our house through Alex and he was fantastic to work with. One thing that sets him apart is his marketing expertise and he knows how to get the word out. He also packaged the home exquisitely - from the photos, to the flyer and even a great web page. Alex is very professional and managed to keep us well informed throughout the entire process. We highly recommend working with Alex!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Center Square, Albany, NY.
I am writing this review of Alexander Monticello, who recently served as my buyer’s agent during the purchase of my new home in downtown Albany. It was a real pleasure to work with Alex. He is kind and pleasant and listened to me. He understood what kind of place I was looking for and worked hard to find the right place for me. He was very helpful in all stages of the purchase (making the offer, negotiating conditions and terms, finding a loan, closing, everything..). Our situation was a bit complicated as we moved here from France. Alex was not put off by that. He even found us a French lawyer! Alex is honest and straightforward. He is not pushy at all. He came highly recommended from friends and I pass this high recommendation on to others.

Bought a Multi Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Helderberg, Albany, NY.
I recently purchased an owner occupied/investment property in Albany. I can honestly say, it would not have been possible without Alex's guidance and expertise. Obviously making such a large purchase can be a stressful experience. Alex helped narrow down options, provided market insight, and walked me through every step of the process. I haven't purchased other property with anyone before, but I really feel Alex went above and beyond what the typical broker would do for a buyer. I truly felt like I had a partner, not just a buying agent. If I'm fortunate enough to purchase any more property in the Albany area, I will work with Alex again without hesitation.

By the way - for anyone considering selling a home, have you seen the Monticello website or the sites he puts up for properties? Honestly, they speak for themselves - no one else in the area is working this hard to sell property. Period.

Sold a home in 2013.
We just sold our house today and were very impressed with Alex Monticello. He always responded to all of our questions very quickly and gave us good advice throughout the whole sale process. He put together great flyers and website to show off the great pictures that they took. It was nice working with someone that clearly was working with you.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Clifton Park, NY.
Alex just helped my husband and I find our dream home! We were relocating and we each had very different ideas of what our home should be like. Alex was extremely patient and understanding. He took the time to find out exactly what we wanted. We never felt pressured or rushed. He provided honest advice and information about the area. He was quick to respond to emails and phone calls. Overall he exceeded all of our expectations. We would highly recommend Alex to anyone in need of a realty company!
