|Alex & his team go the extra mile, and then some. A friend of mine is using them and just raves. As a fellow real estate professional, and an appraiser, I see a lot of agents, and Alex should give them lessons. Go Alex, thanks!
|We listed our mother's house with Alex, and had a terrific experience. He and his staff are simply the best! I've known Alex for over 20 years, but only now had the opportunity to work with him. He is an exception person who is at the top of his profession. I relied on him before and during the sale, and he (and his team) never let us down. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the terrific staff that forms his team, specifically Jennifer, Cheryl and Janet. Bottom line: if you are selling or buying in Simi or the surrounding area, Alex Gandel should be your first and only call!
|"Alex and his team are AMAZING!!! They helped us sell our home quickly in order to move out of State to our new home, with matching closing dates on each home! They were responsive, caring, honest, and extremely knowledgeable, answering every single question we had. We highly recommend Alex and his team!"
|Alex Gandel is not only a top realtor, but a kind and concerned man. He is professional and comes with 40 years of experience. No one could have a bad experience with this dedicated man!

She made the experience seem so easy. She was honest, reliable and always professional. Welles is an outstanding agent. We appreciate everything century 21 did for us. We found a home we love!!!! Thank you Alex Gandel, Welles Miller and everyone in the office that helps put it all together. You guys rock!"
|"Alex Gandel is the most knowledgeable and professional agent I have known. Alex represented us in buying our current house in 2009, and we consider him our friend. Currently he’s helping us with our next purchase. With Alex we found what we were looking in an agent: peace of mind, and knowledge that the transaction will be handled extremely proficiently without us getting involved in, and worrying about the details. We greatly appreciate Alex’s and his team’s handling of this sale and will definitely use their services in future, and recommend them to our friends."
|Robert and Virginia Beihl
|"Once again, Alex and Staff did a great job for us. The purchase process went smoothly after Alex found us a great house. We love it, but if we ever decide to sell it, Alex will be the Realtor we call."
|I would like to say Alex did a great job for me with my desire to do a 1031 exchange. Alex sold the house I wanted to sell in 3 days, was very pleased of course, next step, we found a house I wanted, in a more desirable area at a fair price, I liked the house and bought that house. The best surprise for me was the very smooth process to move all the paper work through the proper channels in a timely period, Alex and staff made sure everything was done properly and smoothly, I highly recommend Alex Gandel for your real estate needs.
|"We had never met Alex Gandel but he was highly recommended by our property manager. We live out of state and after talking to him by phone, we felt that our listing was with the right broker. Alex has a good marketing plan, excellent photographer and great staff that goes above and beyond. Any challenges that came up were dealt with and we can't thank him enough. He treated us like family. We would deal with him again - he has hero status in our book!!"
|Mr. Alex Gandel is a very knowledgeable, polite and professional agent. There are many real estate agents in the area but what makes him better than the rest in the area is the fact that he gives lot of effort in each and every listing he has to sell. When we met him for the first time, we were extremely impressed by the amount of research he had already put in to know the value of our house and the additional information needed to sell. He was very informative as well. He comes across as a very calm person who exactly knows what he is doing and confident about it as well. He is a marketing machine and once our house was in the market, he left no stone unturned to advertise our listing! We thank Alex and his team from the bottom of our heart and will use his services in future as well and recommend him to our friends in the area. We wish Alex and his team the very best in their future endeavors.
|We met Alex at an Open House in Simi Valley and were impressed and decided we wanted him to represent us in the sale of our home in Thousand Oaks and the purchase of a new home in Simi Valley. Alex and his team were there for us 24/7 through the entire time of preparing our home for sale and finding our new home that we absolutely love! They went above and beyond to serve our needs. They were all such a joy to work with and we would recommend them highly to anyone who is thinking of selling or buying a home.
|Alex and his staff made our sale and buying a house, as easy and stress free as possible. Welles is so easy to work with and always available.
|Alex is professional, informed, gets the job done and I consider him my friend! Welles did a great job of final closing. Alex was instrumental in getting house remodeled. His Contractors did a excellent job. I have used Alex for purchase of home a few years ago and would use him again if the occasion arose. He has the ability and knowledge to make sales happen.
|Chris and Ron
|Alex and his team have made this process seamless. With their knowledgable guidance, incredible responsiveness and enthusiastic professionalism, it is no wonder they enjoy success as the being best realtors in Simi Valley. They strive for excellence and it shows.

|Alex Gandel certainly understands the market. His experience and professionalism gave us the confidence we needed to make the decision to sell. It did not stop there, his team - Cheryl, Welles, Brad and Stella were great... They kept us informed they were always cheerful and willing do help in any way they could. I highly recommend this Century 21/Alex Gandel
|Oliver Garcia and Monica Ferrer
|My husband and I could not be more thankful we chose Alex Gandel and his team to help us sell and find a new home. We appreciated his insight, knowledge of the market, and attention to detail throughout the process. We saw the great reviews he had online and decided to contact him via email. In just a few hours we had already received emails from him, a phone call and even scheduled an appointment to meet him. The day we met him, he came with a very thorough analysis of our property showing direct comparisons which recently sold in our community. His market analysis and explanation of the process was spot-on. He provided a ton of good advice in terms of location and pricing. His team is an exceptional, professional and knowledgeable group of people. They walked us through the process step by step. We would receive emails with spreadsheets to help us guide us through the course of events that were taking place during escrow. All emails, questions, text messages were always answered right away. Alex and his team care for their clients. They listen and apply their experiences and professional connections for the best outcome possible. We are very pleased with the work Alex and his team did, and would highly recommend them to anyone seeking a real estate agent.
|What can I say other than selling our home with Alex and his incredible team could not have gone any smoother. At our initial meeting Alex brought a comprehensive presentation of his experience and services as well as our local comparable market. He immediately honed in on how to best address selling our home and was very attentive to our needs every step of the way. His experience, marketing strategies, personal nature and wonderful team made Alex the best possible choice to sell our home!
|Jeremy, Kristin and Reed
|Thank you so much for all your hard work in selling our home and buying our new home! You guys are amazing and we are so thankful for everything you did for us. We LOVE our new home!

Thanks for giving us the pep talks when needed and offering your ear when we needed.

His staff is very knowledgeable and always ready to help. They guided me throughout the escrow process very well. It was a positive experience dealing with Alex.
|Alex and his Staff were AWESOME! They worked with my family in California to help find my Aunt a home while she was transitioning from Florida. I highly recommend Alex Gandel.
