"After purchasing our rental property, my wife and I were lucky enough to meet Alex, who helped us find a high quality tenant in a very short amount of time. Alex is extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful when approaching a negotiation, and offers guidance without feeling pushy. When my wife and I decided to sell our condo a few years later it was a very easy choice to select Alex to represent us as sellers! We sold the home in six weeks for ABOVE asking! Thanks again for a great (and easy) transaction." — Aaron

"Alex has made us realize he is a true diamond in the rough. He has seamlessly and effortlessly found 2 separate renters for us over the last 2 years, both of which have been ideal tenants. His promptness and responsiveness to whatever situation arises is bar none the best I have experienced in almost any service based industry. Alex represents precisely what great reliable service should be. I can unequivocally offer my highest recommendation for Alex, if only there were anything higher to offer!" — Haejin & Kevin

“I contacted several brokers but ended up working with Alex because of his great attitude. He impressed me with his friendliness, honesty, and excitement. Despite a long exhausting apartment hunt, he never stopped tirelessly working and was always positive. He quickly got a feel for what type of place I was looking for and set up numerous viewings. Sometimes we would spend the better part of a day looking at places in different neighborhoods across Brooklyn. Since I was new to many of these areas, Alex's wealth of knowledge was super valuable. However, what is most impressive about Alex is how much he cares about you. His attentiveness in all the small things makes him an absolute pleasure to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great broker.” — Kerry

​"It was a pleasure working with Alex to sell our condo for a significant profit after 5 years of ownership. He used to work in the 280 PAS rental office, and now has moved to Compass, so you get specialized building expertise along with the resources and marketing muscle of a major NYC real estate brokerage - it’s the best of both worlds. Alex worked tirelessly to find the perfect buyer for our transaction, resulting in an all-cash sale at a record-high $/sf for a 2-bed in the building. I would not hesitate to work with him again and to recommend him to anyone who is buying, selling, or renting." — Patrick
