"Alex Montelongo has been a great help since day one! He is very knowledgeable about the real-estate industry, and we were very impressed on how he was able to market our home and sell it above asking price in a short amount of time. Alex has been a great communicator throughout the entire process. He has always responded to his emails and or telephone calls, and has always found an answer to any of our questions. I feel that Alex has treated us more as a friend than a realtor. We highly recommend for anyone to use Alex for any current or future real estate needs!" ​Chris O'brien
Jennifer Bermudez
"I had the pleasure of working with Alex on his Fontana listing. He was a great business partner throughout the transaction. We had a few bumps during escrow and he was responsive, communicative and helpful. We worked together to find the best solution for both of our clients and closed escrow in 31 days during the holiday season. I would love to work with him again in the future."

Ryan & Alanna Cowles
We can't say enough good things about working with Alex! We are first-time homebuyers and we were daunted by the process at first. Once we connected with Alex, it was smooth-sailing from there. He answered ALL of our many questions. He was reliable and prompt, he communicated well, and he was willing to drive out to show us properties across the hi-desert without a second thought. Alex is incredibly knowledgeable and he patiently walked us through every step of the process. He explained everything to us in terms we could understand and helped us find the perfect home for our family! Alex made the entire process a breeze and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for their next (or first!) home :) Thank you so much, Alex! Ryan & Alanna Cowles

John & Deborah Johnson
When we made the decision to sell our home, we had interviewed several agents but were very disappointed and unimpressed with what we saw. Alex was then recommended to us through a family member. In our first initial meeting, Alex took detailed notes and diligently listened to our needs and what we wanted to accomplish. Once we decided on the date the house would begin its listing, Alex and his team gave it 110%. During our photo shoot, Alex and his team took the necessary time and paid very close attention to all the details which made our pictures so incredibly perfect. He even brought in a photographer who specialized in drone pics to get us some fantastic aerial shots as well. By far, more professional then any of the other countless pics we have seen on seller sites. Alex really did a first-class job. Alex orchestrated an aggressive Open House schedule and made sure his key team members were always present, on time and prepared. From that initial meeting until the sale close, Alex and his team were always completely involved. Alex is extremely knowledgeable and very intelligent which made our transaction flow very smoothly. We feel very lucky and tremendously grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Alex. We would absolutely recommend him without hesitation to anyone needing representation for selling or buying a home. John & Deborah Johnson

12/12/17 We met Alex Montelongo at an open house. At that time, we were trying to sell our condominium and buy a house, and we weren't so sure how that process would be like. We met Alex at our place, and he explained and guided us thoroughly about the process and steps of selling and buying property. He even recommended us Curt Nix, a loan officer who gave us an excellent loan rate. Both of them, are very dedicated and professional. We had good experience working with them, and if we had to do it again I wouldn't hesitate to work with them. Miguel De La Mora

4/2/2017 "Alex M. had so much knowledge about the location, the current market value but most importantly, he understood and respected our wishes. We would love to work with him again, his customer service is exceptional and genuine. He was able to reach out to us and was available for us whenever we needed him, I never felt uninformed or "out of the loop". My family was dealing with an Estate and Probate and his expertise was instrumental in not only the marketing of our home but the selling of it. Without Alex, it could not have been done."

10/15/2014 To whom it may concern, It is tough trying to choose a Broker out of hundreds, but what stood out about Alex is the fact that I could not find any bad reviews about him, and after experiencing his help to purchase our first home I can see why. Not only was he professional but he was always very optimistic, just in case you fall in love with that fixer upper house, he can see the positive side of the house so that you do get excited. He also made sure we did not purchase our house in the bad part of the city, it was nice to know he was looking out for our safety. He kept us very updated and he made sure we got what we wanted when it came to negotiations. Ligia and Dustin Borrelli 4012 Camerino St. Lakewood, Ca. 90712

06/10/2014 Alex is very patient and really listens to our needs. He is very professional and goes the extra mile to find us detailed information about the home we were interested in purchasing. After we bought our home, he was very helpful in resolving some issues we found. He even went out of his way to call the water company for us when we had issues with the plumbing. I would recommend Alex because he works hard, always has a positive attitude and a smile during stressful situations. Sincerely, Penny Esposito 328 Lincoln St. Huntington Beach, Ca.
Sylvester Creado
February 28, 2014 To Whom It May Concern, After a friend recommended Alex Montelongo, we (my wife and I) decided to use him as our realtor when looking to buy a condo. Alex was very professional. He did not push us towards buying the condo and not overly aggressive. He was patient with us and allowed us to make the decisions. He was able to guide us along the process and work towards the goal of getting the condo closed. He was great at collaborating with my loan agent and the escrow company. Due to this collaboration we were able to close a week ahead of schedule. He was meticulous in reading through the documents and covering us. His comment was "I have not lost my clients money and I am not going to start now." He was able to guide me along the way of all the steps during the process. Alex was easy to work with. Alex is a professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alex Montelongo to any person who is looking to buy a home/condo. Best Regards, Sylvester Creado

Adela Sanchez
I recently had a transaction located on 6152 Hayter Street in Lakewood California with a Real Estate Agent who made our profession a success and a blessing to be a part of. To be more specific, he made a very difficult transaction, a short sale in Real Estate, very smooth from start to finish. His name is Alex Montelongo and he holds a License with Coldwell Banker Star Realty in Seal Beach. Furthermore, Alex was always prepared, skilled, and presented a work ethic that can be described as “Top of the Line” as a Real Estate Consultant. It is only my pleasure, as a Real Estate Consultant myself, to bring others attention when a member in my Fraternity shines. Therefore, when a light shines bright, it has always been my duty to allow that light to shine. Alex Montelongo job well done, and may your skill and professionalism continue to improve our industry.

To whom it may concern, I am writing this letter of recommendation for Alex Montelongo's future clients. Alex was the first and only Realtor that I worked with when searching to buy a home. As a first time home buyer, I expected the whole process to be nerve wrecking and confusing, but Alex made me feel confident and at ease during the whole ordeal. I never felt pressure nor disappointed during my search. He took great care to meet my criteria in purchasing my first home, and had a lot of knowledge about today's real estate market. Alex is such a nice guy that he drove my mom and I around the neighborhood on his lunch break to look at different homes. Always with a positive attitude, Alex gladly showed my mother and I house after house until he found one we completely fell in love with. You know the saying, "Love at first sight?" That's how I felt when I stepped into my new home. My family and I would like to thank Alex for all of his hard work and dedication for helping me purchase my first home. He had so much patience and explained all of the paperwork to my parents and I. Alex made this whole process of buying a home a breeze. I would highly recommend Alex Montelongo as your Realtor of choice. Kind Regards, Jerry & Janice Valsvig, Julie Colhoun
Roland Denzel
I can't recommend Alex enough. I was looking for someone who really knows the area where my father lived, since I don't live close by. Alex not only knows the area, but researched the neighborhood like he was going to move in, himself! After we listed the house, Alex worked with my 75 year old father to minimize the number of house viewings and get things on a schedule that kept disruptions to a minimum. Every step of the way, Alex kept my father and I informed on what was happening. Alex made the process fast and easy. The house sold faster than we imagined, and we got more than we ever thought possible. Alex really knows his stuff, and knows how to market using modern day technology and tools, but with the personal touch and customer service that is so rare these days. Sincerely, Roland Denzel
Sable Mayers
As a first time home buyer it gives me great pleasure to recommend my Real Estate Agent, Alex "Star" Montelongo. He represented me in my recent purchase of a single family home. Alex guided me through the entire process, from loan pre-qualification to searching for houses, to making the offer and closing the deal. I credit Alex with a smooth, stress-free home buying experience. Alex is savvy, personable and knows the market, inside and out. I never could have gotten my dream home without him. To reiterate, I am nothing but pleased with Alex and his expertise and I recommend him to everyone. Sincerely, Sable Mayers
Raj Kode
I highly recommend Alex Montelongo to you as your Buyers Agent. Alex is pro-active, loyal, inteligent, hard-working, comitted, patient and a good listener. We met Alex in one of the properties and we liked his wealth of knowledge in Real Estate proprties in the surrounding areas of Los Alamitos. After selecting the property we had a choice of choosing our own agent. We wanted a real practical person who can work for us and be there for us. We selected Alex. We found very good qualities in him such as listening to our requirements and comments and he always offered his ideas to us. If needed he can be very helpful in clearing your thought process as well. Alex helped us in every stage of the home buying process and whenever we had a question. He worked on our terms and timings. He answered our phone calls most of the times. We had a rough ride with the Sellers Agent and Lenders/Approval process, and during those times Alex was so calm, patient and managed the situations well by being on top of the process.He is a good candidate to work under pressure. When I work with someone, I want that person to be experienced, honest and competetive, know your requirements and work on my terms. We think Alex has all of them. If you have any questions regarding Alex Montelongo, we are happy to inform you of our home buying experience. Thank you, Raj & Sravani Kode
Sandra Lopez Figueroa
To whom it may concern, Our home had been listed by another agent who just let it sit there without calling us to let us know the listing had expired. Thank Goodness, Alex showed up to our door, informed us that our home listing had expired, asked to set up an appointment and then came to that appointment with a thorough plan. His plan talked about the "Short Sale" process and how he would market the home. Alex impressed us from the very first day. Although, the process seemed to move slowly, he kept us well informed. He displayed tremendous work ethic which far exceeded our expectations. There was never a question that went unanswered. Having to move from our home was bitter sweet. Although the decision was a tough decision and life changing... Alex's work ethic, support and true professionalism made the process a more bearable experience. We look forward to working with Alex again when we are ready to buy a new home. Sincerely, Joe and Sandra Figueroa
Angela Calvert & Annette Lewis
Dear Alex, When we first met you from the beginning to the end you showed nothing but professionalism, and concern for us to find a home we would be happy with. We were exhausted from going from one part of town to the other, and not finding the home we so desired. In fact, we were totally frustrated with the entire process. The day we met, you took us by the hand and explained to us the ins and outs of looking for a home, the process we would go through, and the choices of financing we could expect. At that moment we felt we had met the right person to carry us through this journey, and believe us... it was a journey. You made sure that we were comfortable with you and you were even concerned if you were the right agent for us, since we were changing agents. Believe me when we say from the moment we shook hands with you, and after leaving your office, we knew we had an agent who was an expert in his business, and would find a great home for us. To prevent us from continuously searching everywhere, you talked to us and pinpointed the type of home we wanted and the price range we could afford. You were the middle person through it all, negotiating with the sellers agent, steering us to a great mortgage person, and escrow company. You answered every one of our questions and when you did not have the answer you researched and found it. No one could have asked for a better agent. In fact we feel as if you have become part of our family. We feel honored to recommend you to people we know, because we can assure them that they will get five star service. Sincerely, Angela Calvert & Annette Lewis
Carla Maningas
I am writing to recommend Alex Montelongo as a Realtor and to express my sincere gratitude for his professionalism and dedication to the task of selling a house in Lakewood that belonged to my uncle, now deceased. I was charged with handling my uncle's affairs, but I live in Phoenix, Arizona. Without Alex, I dont know how I would have accomplished everything needed to get the house ready for the sale and get through the process. He made it not only possible, but as easy as it could be. Alex was willing to do so much more than any listing agent would ever be expected to do. He took care of the house as though it was his own, checking on it nearly every day, watering the lawn, fixing little things, always being considerate and respectful of the property and my time. I simply can't imageine that any other agent would have been half as conscientious ans Alex was throughout the process. His attention to detail and commitment to the job was extraordinary. He sold the property in a very difficult market for the full listing price. He always kept me informed. I could not have asked for better representation and assistance. He's a marvelous person and an exceptional professional in his field. To anyone considering having Alex list your property, or represent you as a buyer, move forward with complete confidence that your interests will be in good hands. He is a jewel and I'm terribly grateful to him. Sincerely, Carla Maningas
Audra Arr
RE: SERVICES OF ALEX MONTELONGO We first met Alex when we were looking for a rental in Lakewood in the Spring of 2009. He was so helpful and friendly, we decided to retain his services to represent us in finding and purchasing our first home in the Fall of 2010. We appreciated the fact that Alex paid close attention to our likes and dislikes and steered us towards properties that were not only within our price range, but houses we might actually view as a home. When we did find a short sale we wished to purchase, he guided us through the lengthy process and always made us feel he had our best interests at heart. We have already recommended Alex's services to our friends and happily recommend him to any prospective customers. Sincerely, Audra Arr & Anthony Arr
Thomas Taylor
Alex, Well we made it! My wife and I want to thank you for your efforts on a very difficult sale. As you know the market is in a down phase and we were trying to sell a house that needed a lot of repairs to get it marketable. We appreciate the fact that you hung in there with us while we did the necessary repairs and cosmetic touchups to make this home presentable and meet the current expectations of our prospective buyers. Your persistance and approach to the many details to get this into escrow was truly remarkable and you are to be commended. If we ever buy or sell another house, you definatley are the Realtor of choice. Best of luck in your future endeavors, Tom and Pam Taylor
Jennifer Torres
Letter of Recommendation for Alex Montelongo: Alex, I wanted to send to you a word of thanks for the great service you provided in not only helping to locate a tenant for my property, but in selling it for me as well. I was very pleased to have your support in this sale. Throughout the entire process you were very professional, conscientious, and motivated. I always felt as though I was your only client. Initially, I was uncertain of the asking price, but you diligently checked multiple sources to verify that the pricing was accurate and met my goal of selling the house within a certain timeframe. You were able to schedule all meetings and interactions at my convenience which was helpful considering I was not living in the area. You provided me with outstanding advice about how to prepare my home for sale given your knowledge of the area. You promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. You worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette and documentation. In all, I must say that I am impressed. I would definitely recommend your sevices and would not hesitate to contact you again should the need arise. With Gratitude, Jennifer Torres, Signal Hill 2010
Dave Rosin
April 2010 I recently purchased a home and had the fortune to have Alex Montelongo as my Realtor. I found literally hundreds of homes in my price range in the area I was looking. It was intimidating at first but Alex helped me realize what types of homes were the best for me. I had purchased two homes prior to this and thought I pretty much knew all the ins and outs. I soon found out that with the glut of homes on the market today that there are many pitfalls. Alex took the time to explain the different types of sales Ex: Short Sales, Standard Sales and Bank Owned and answered all of my questions regarding the benefits of each. I eventually decided on buying a short sale, which can be risky and takes a lot of finesse. I found that Alex kept the ball rolling, making sure that everyone involved, including myself, was doing their part in making the sale go through in time. I have to hand it to Alex. He really is a great judge of character. He was able to read people well and was 100% accurate in how the sale went down. That sense of understanding of the "Realty Game" made it easy to trust and value his opinion. I highly recommend Alex to anyone looking to buy a home. He truly went out of his way to make sure I was happy with my decision to buy my home. Sincerely, David Rosin
Rodolfo Carpi
Dear Alex, We would like to take a moment and THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work. This was a very stressful time for us and you really took a lot of the stress off of our shoulders to ensure that everything was not only completed on time, but completed in a professional and calm manner. We cannot thank you enough for all that you have done. You listened attentively to our needs and matched them 100%. We understand what a busy man you are and always felt your commitment to helping us have a seamless transaction. We felt personalized service beyond our expectations and are proud to have you represent us. We will not hesitate to refer you to our friends, family, business partners and anyone in the market for a new home. The service that you provided was OUTSTANDING. Please don't hesitate to have anyone call us for a referral. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Rudy Carpi and Sylvia Alatriste

We'd had such a great experience with him that we look forward to keeping him as our lifetime Real Estate Agent because our dreams don't end here. Sincerely, Mike & Filo Collins- Long Beach, Ca.

Dear Alex, I am writing this letter to let you know how satisfied I am with your representation in the selling of my home. Besides being a joy to work with, you are an honest, take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. You successfully developed a marketing plan to sell our home during a time when the market was down and it was difficult to sell a home. I will be highly recommending you to everyone that needs to buy or sell a home. You have a client for life. Sincerely, Jim Goethals

Evel Zamudio
February 2, 2007 Re: Letter of Recommendation for Alex Montelongo Dear Mr. Alex Montelongo Now that the dust has settled, I can begin by once again thanking you for making the purchase of our new prop... erty as easy as you did. From completing our search for "The Right Place" to meeting our needs, to the final closing of a complex transaction. You were always there with timely, accurate advice and direction. Everything the property and you had to offer has exceeded our expectations. We will never forget your kindness, patience and steadfast efforts on ur behalf. You are exceptional; you went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied with our purchase. You are the most effective and honest Realtor (both which are very hard to find). We also would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for all your efforts in giving us the information we needed, comforting us a difficcult times and keeping the process going despite the hurdles; and for these reasons we are both grateful. We could not have asked for a more professional and caring (towards his clients needs) Agent. If we ever need a Realtor again, we will not hesitate for a second to call on your services. We will definitely recommend you enthusiastically to any buyer or seller. All who serve the public should take their cue from you! With warm gratitude, The Zamudio Family
Marilyn George
To whom it may concern, When I finally decided to sell my house after living there for over thirty years, I was fortunate to have Alex help me. He knew that I wanted to sell my house and move to a mobile home park. Alex took me around to see many different ones. He was always looking out for my best interests and I felt secure with him being present at every appointment. Alex was knowledgeable about my legal rights being both a seller and a buyer. Alex made the entire process so much easier. His experience and hard work is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Marilyn George
