Alex was a huge help in finding our new home in a crazy busy seller’s market. He was responsive and really honed in on what we were looking for. He managed to help us find what we needed, get closed- in roughly a month- amazing. Also we were in another state- so his willingness to look at properties and film and photo them and share info in anyway that worked for us technology wise was huge! Looking back we don’t know how we managed to get such a great choice so quickly but we know he had a big part of that. Would recommend and will use gain!

We had the pleasure to meet Alex when we were looking for an investment property in Sacramento. He became our most wonderful real estate agent. We highly recommend Alex to anyone who has real-estate needs ..... he is friendly, polite, respectful and we're genuinely cared for. He broken things down and made the complicated process a little easier to understand. He walked us through the entire process, so we know exactly what's happening. He is very professional and handled himself in stressful situation and we appreciate him in keeping a level head and calm demeanor when we cannot. He never gave up when things did not go as planned. He always had a backup plan readily waiting. Alex is thorough and detail-oriented who ensures that every "i" is dotted and "t" is crossed. We appreciate his honesty and he told the truth about the properties and gave us the right advice. He is reliable and know tips not available via web search. He is accommodating and communicates well and regularly keeping us well-informed. We appreciate Alex and his real estate expertise. We wish this wonderful guy all the best! ~Jing and Sally G.~

Alex was so great to work with! Super responsive, thorough, patient. We really appreciated the thoughfulness of sending house recommendations when there was a lull in our search, and refining what we were looking for. Throughout the purchase process, Alex was extremely knowledgeable and diligent, as well as being patient with us as first time home buyers. I would highly recommend Alex to any friends or family.

I don't think it gets any better than Alex! He helped me with my endless list of questions about home-buying, rental property investments, loan approvals, and had a good eye for red flags while looking at houses with me. He's also very enthusiastic and much more responsive than the other realtors I've been working with.
