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.
