"Alexandra was a pleasure to have as our real estate agent. Alexandra never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. I would highly recommend her over any other agent as she and the people she works with will help you find your home within your budget as well as receive the best service any agent can provide. I know from experience as we were able to buy the house we liked, in our budget using, Alexandra."

"We met Alex during an open house in February 2019. We have been searching for our first home for some time and have given our information to various agents. However, no one really followed-up with us until we met Alex. Alex was breath of fresh air as she was enthusiastic to help us narrow down the type of home we wanted and answered any questions we had. She was super helpful to us as we have never been through the home-buying process and were nervous. She made the experience very positive and listened to our needs. In a few short months, we finally got our first home in April 2019. We would definitely work with her again."

"Alex made my experience as a first time buyer feel safe, genuine, and all about me and my needs as a home buyer. She worked with me even before I started to seriously look in the market to get a sense of what my preferences were. I was looking in a very competitive market, and Alex didn't shy away from the challenge. She was honest about where I may need to make compromises, and where I might need or want to push or explore further. For example, she had me write a list of what I wanted out of a house, and out of a neighborhood so that she could get an accurate picture of how I like to live. Taking this approach meant that Alex really was looking to understand my needs, so that when we did find the right house, she knew it just as much as I did."
"She's hands down a realist. She reinforced a few strategies that I'm so thankful for: take it one house at a time, and don't get attached. When we lost our first offer, I was already prepared and ready to keep hunting."
"Buying a house as a first timer, especially as a woman, can be challenging. I had a lot of questions and a ton of fears. What was so perfect about working with Alex was that she met me where I was. She answered my questions and prepared me for all the potential obstacles. Alex is a pro, she'll find you the house you're meant to live in."

"Alex Costello made buying a home a joy! She helped me figure out the area in Petaluma that best suits my needs, she showed me the opportunities within my price range, along with all the potential each home had. She was there to get me through the entire purchasing process, the ups and downs. Without her, I would not have found my new home."
Jennifer Douglas, 2017
"I love my new home! It started when Alex took me on my first stop that day of five or six homes — all good! But it didn’t actually start there. It began because I didn’t want to waste my time (I was just visiting here), or more importantly, hers! I had told her exactly what was wanted, close to my kids (but not too close), no “fixer-upper”, move-in condition. Done! And Alex did better. She listened and produced ... all I wanted and more. In a nice neighborhood with great neighbors one can only dream of. And the best? It was the first house I was shown. Saw the rest, but came back to the first. Saw it. Loved it. Bought it. She had listened. You are in very good hands with Alex to help you find your dream home."
