What Our Clients Say

“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. 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.” - Dilay Watson

“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.” – Guglielmi Family

“My wife and I found Monticello 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.” - Hess Family

“As a foreigner, it is of course a big challenge to purchase a house in the US as there are many obstacles and uncertainty that keep us from making a good decision. Especially, finding a house that is perfect for my family is the most difficult task since we Koreans lack local real estate knowledge. That is why we need a very smart, proactive and faithful realtor to help us out. But most Koreans (well not all) like to get a super fast feedback on their inquires, especially if those inquires are related to the real estate. I would like to suggest Alexander Monticello as the key realtor who can work for the internationally relocated (Korean) families. Alexander is fast in searching properties and giving real-time feedback, he shares reports of a specific properties, he answers whenever we need him, works on weekends (and weekdays as well), able to facilitate the process by using internet-based inventory search and automatic notification when new property pops up, is well equipped with financial and legal knowledge regarding real-estate and also does not hesitate to advise any potential risks and provide us with many Korean community-related informations! I really cannot list the whole merit that Alexander has and I just want others to know that the biggest stress lies upon us, apart from everything, is getting a good house with a faithful, trust-worthy realtor, and I strongly recommend Alexander Monticello.” - Myungsun Kim

“Alex is amazing and I can’t say enough good things about him. We were really difficult clients – first time homebuyers with very vague ideas of what we wanted in a house and a lot of questions! Alex promptly answered every single question, gave us great advice, and was incredibly patient with us (we saw a lot of houses!). He genuinely cared about us finding the house that was right for us. Then, when we finally found “it”, he provided excellent advice (and support) during the offer, negotiation, inspection process. I could go on and on – but suffice it to say, that you want Alex with you through this process!” – Lauren Hunt

“Alexander provides support, advice and action at all the right moments. Without him, we couldn’t have sold our house in 3 short weeks. His friendly demeanor and real estate experience make Alexander the right fit for anyone and we recommend his services highly.” - Julie Rose

Excellent agent. Really paid attention to what we were looking for in a house and showed us only houses that met out criteria. He devoted a ton of time on the weekends to show us literally dozens of homes. Nuts and bolts he is the most patient real estate agent I’ve ever worked with. When we finally found the right house he was fantastic during the negotiation process. As far as real estate agents go, Alex will give you the professionalism and devotion that you will not find from one of the ‘big box stores.’ He offers personalized service at every single stage of the process. All that and his website is far easier to navigate and use than the others.” -Nevin Smith

“Alex is one of the best realtors I have ever worked with. He takes great effort to find properties that are best to meet my needs rather than for his own profit. When I contacted a number of realtors after an online search, Alex was the first to respond, with thoughtful and specific questions to better understand what I really wanted. I was immediately impressed. When I had questions about a particular property, his response was always prompt, well-thought out, and beyond expectation. I found him highly experienced, trustworthy, and responsive, day and night, by phone or email. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone who needs a realtor in the Capital District.” - Y. G.

“Selling a home is stressful. Working with Alex is not. His knowledge of current technical trends that aid, and ultimately become the reason your home will sell…..is invaluable. Alex never brought a negative attitude to the table nor did he confuse or scare us with what I would typically expect from a realtor. He worked with us, not for us, throughout the process of selling our home and I would recommend his services without hesitation to anyone.” – Bryan Kahrs

“Alexander Monticello far exceeded our hopes and expectations. He should pride himself with his professional and approachable demeanor. He was ALWAYS accessible and provided constant feedback and advice via phone, text, and e-mail. We were extremely pleased with the quality and honest service received. Alex is well versed in his field and has the ability to explain the intricacies of real estate in order to assist you with important decisions. We look forward to working with him in the future.” – Teresa Wood

“Working with Alex could not have been a more pleasant experience. He is both very professional and extremely personable. Alex was neither pushy nor reluctant while we shopped for our home, but always willing to offer helpful, constructive advice throughout the process. He is incredibly prompt and responsive as well. Without asking, Alex always had thorough research on neighborhoods and homes we were interested in, and when we had questions on a property, he was always able to respond with detailed information from the seller in less than 24 hours. I always felt like he was working hard to get us in the right place and, in the end, he did!” – Christopher Morris

“Alex was awesome! He helped us truly find our dream home. Incredibly patient and understanding he really helped us through the process. We highly recommend him!” – Jessica Ansert Klami

“Alex came recommended by mutual friends and I reached out to him as a first time home buyer with little knowledge of the housing marketplace. Alex put me in contact with a pre-qual loan officer, set up numerous appointments for house showings to get a better idea of what type of home and what location best suited me and was very prompt and responsive in communicating and updating me with any new information. I found him knowledgable of both Capital District neighborhoods (especially Albany) and any potential property issues – whether structural or bank-related. I am glad he was recommended to me and look forward to working with Alex again in the future.” – Marwa El Minyawi

“As a first time home buyer, it was slightly intimidating getting into the real estate market. After looking at Alex’s website, I gained a good overview of what to expect in the process of buying a home. After speaking with Alex, I felt even more comfortable in going ahead in my search. I let Alex know what I was looking for and ended up putting in an offer on one of the first three condos Alex showed me. Alex is very personable as well as knowledgeable about the capital district real estate market. His recommendations for an attorney and mortgage broker were exceptional as well. Having Alex walk me through the each step made the process of buying my first home a relatively stress free and easy process.” – Peter Salony

“Alex rented my apartment in record time in a tough market. His professionalism and attention to detail was impressive.”  - Georgia Tucker
