Alex calls his staff “magical.” Together, with Alex’s keen insight and guidance, they work with a mindset to continually “raise the bar” in service, communication, follow-through, creativity, perseverance, and excellence.

Alex Gandel and Staff are highly skilled, friendly, experienced and successful in working with standard Real Estate transactions as well as a variety of challenging circumstances, such as divorce, short sale hardship, contingent sellers with a home of choice, relocation clients and investors.
