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!

Alex, Thank you for your help in selling our home and buying a new one. Even after having undertaking the process before, it was tremendously overwhelming and a little frightening at times. However, you were always there as a calming force, letting us know the right buyer would come along, that we would find a house that would work for us - and taking action steps to make your assurances become reality. From the moment you came by to walk us through what you would list the house for and how you would sell it until the moment we closed, you were there for every question and request. You never made us feel like we were being unreasonable, demanding or taking too much of your time. In fact, the level of service you provided made us feel like we were your only clients at all times.

Buying and selling a home is intimidating at the best of times. In this economy, it can be even more so. You and your team were there for us at every step of the way to make it simple and help us get to where we are now - in a new home we love! Bryan and Marina Marcou-O'Malley

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Normanskill, Albany, NY.
My wife and I found MonticelloNYS on a website while searching for a home in Albany. We wanted a realtor who had the buyer’s best interest in mind. Alex exceeded our highest expectations! He helped us every step of the way, from making sure we were not going to pay too much, to being available at every home we wanted to see. He worked quickly to suggest homes with the characteristics we wanted, eliminating homes merely because they were for sale. He is knowledgeable, thoroughly competent, available, honest and patient. He made sure we had all the information we desired and followed- through professionally and promptly. He offered assistance in finding a mortgage company, an attorney, and a home inspector, because we didn’t have a clue who to choose and trust. We felt secure with Alex throughout the entire process. You will be very satisfied with Alex Monticello.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Delaware Avenue, Albany, NY.
I needed help selling my first home, and Alex was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was responsive, patient and extremely knowledgeable.

I was a bit worried at first, because I had just accepted a job offer out of state, and I wasn't going to be in town while my house was on the market. Alex managed to alleviate all of my concerns. He responded promptly to my questions, and kept me informed throughout.

My home was old and in serious need of repair. Alex referred me to contractors who were were able to get the work done quickly, efficiently, and for a very reasonable price. From there, we placed the house on the market. I had already moved out of state, but Alex kept me updated every step of the way. We had an offer on the house within just days of listing it! Alex negotiated on my behalf and we came up with a price everyone was happy with.

Alex was with us every step of the way. He was professional, courteous, and extremely informative. What could have been a nightmare (trying to sell a very old home in a very short amount of time, remotely), ended up being a quick and easy process.

I recommend Alex without reservation.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Whitehall, Albany, NY.
We are thrilled we decided on Alex to sell our home. When we first met with Alex we were undecided about listing our home for sale. Alex listened to our concerns, and never pressured us to make a quick decision. He was sensitive to the emotions of buying and selling, and put us at ease throughout the process.

Once our home was listed, it sold above asking price within 3 days. The personalized website Alex created for our home with professional photos and detailed information on the home helped it appeal to many potential buyers before they walked through the door. On the buying end, Alex was very patient with us, as we spent countless hours looking for the right home.

Not only is Alex an outstanding realtor with a lot of professionalism, he is also a great person. We cannot say enough good things about Alex and are highly recommending Monticello LREB to our friends and family.
