“Alexis was a true pro. From the moment I set up the appointment to view my new apartment - I knew I was in good hands. Alexis was honest, energetic and understood the needs I had. After the initial viewing, I still had many questions that Alexis answered swiftly to ensure I found the proper place to fit all my needs. I don't often write reviews, but in this case I wanted people to know that if you are looking for top notch service from someone who will always answer your call, text or email - you found it all in Alexis.

“Alexis is a true professional and hard worker. I trusted her from the beginning to the end. She was able to find an excellent tenant super quickly. I also like Alexis human touch, as if she is my sister. I would definitely recommend her for future listings.

“Alexis, I can't thank you enough for the personal care and attention that you gave us. After such a difficult prior experience, your honest guidance was invaluable. We look forward to referring others to you. Hope you are having a great NYC spring. Keep in touch. With much appreciation, Lynnette

“Thanks Alexis for being so helpful and prompt. If every agent worked the way you do, there would be a lot more happy tenants in NY! 😁
—Debbie Ten, Helped to Rent a Condo at 20 West Street, 04/2016
“Alexis managed/rented my property in lower Manhattan for many years; a truly committed agent who dealt with it as though it was her own. When I eventually decided to sell, at an ambitious price level, Alexis accepted the challenge and set about finding a buyer. She did so and, even though Hurricane Sandy intervened before closing, Alexis never lost her cool and the sale went through smoothly. I'm based in Europe, now focused on opportunities on this side of the Atlantic, but if I'm tempted to invest in Manhattan again I will certainly turn to Alexis.
—Fergus Sheridan, Sold a home in Manhattan, 2014
“Alexis has been my broker for the past 4 years. She helped me rent out and later sell my condo in downtown Manhattan. She is probably the best broker I have worked with. She always puts her client's interest first, is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and is a hard worker so I recommend her to anyone looking to buy / rent / sell their apartment.
—Mike Panzeri, Sold a home in New York, 2015
“Alexis Gandelman had been my real estate agent since 2012. She is smart, experienced, efficient, energetic, honest, attentive to details and very pleasant to work with. When she negotiates for you, you can be confident that there is a top-notch fighter in your corner, relentlessly protecting your interests. Alexis is very personable and very well organized. Through the years, she became not just a real estate broker, but a good friend. I can recommend her highly, enthusiastically and without any reservations. In my opinion, she is the best RE agent in NYC.
—Samuel Levin, MD, Found a tenant for a Multi-Family home in Financial District
“Very professional, and also personable. She helped me with renting a studio downtown. She was responsive, punctual, and fun. I see her sometimes around the building I live in now, and I love having a small talk with her.
—Kyuhee Kim, Helped to rent a home in Financial District, 2015
“Alexis was great. My wife and I could not have asked for a better Realtor. She was attentive to all our needs, showed us properties that were in our budget and made every effort to make sure we were happy. She always went above and beyond for us. Not only was she our Realtor she became a life time friend. We would definitely recommend her to family and friends.
—Ben Boulet, Sold a Multi-Family home in Turtle Bay, 2014
“Alexis is not only very professional and knows the NYC real estate market very well, she is honest and friendly. She will go above and beyond to negotiate the best price for your property. She has been my agent for the past 10 years in both buying, renting and selling my property in NYC.
—Kathleen P., Bought a home in Financial District, 2005
“Alexis Gandelman has been my broker since 2005 when she first helped me purchase an investment property in NYC. Since then she has helped me acquire additional properties and qualified tenants to rent them.
I find her to be professional and knowledgeable yet warm, friendly and down-to-earth. With Alexis what you see is what you get - she is honest, straightforward, and always provides advice that benefits her clients, even if it's not necessarily good for her pocketbook. This is a rarity in Manhattan's competitive real estate market, where brokers often sell their soul for a buck.
Speaking of money, Alexis treats her clients' money as if it were her own, striving to improve my ROI, negotiate better terms, or saving money on vital services related to my properties.
I highly recommend Alexis to anyone seeking to purchase, sell or rent in NYC. She's a broker with brains and heart. Plus, you will be treated like a VIP regardless of whether your budget is $50K or $50M.

“I highly recommend Alexis for negotiating and selling your property. She is very confident, competent and outgoing; a real go-getter who gets results!
Alexis listed my property a few months ago and approached adjacent neighbors about doing the same. By bundling the three parcels and marketing them to several local developers, the whole became much greater than the sum of its parts.
She masterfully negotiated a deal using knowledge, skill, charisma, humor and strategy. Her engaging, down-to-earth style also helped get all parties to work together - quite a feat considering the disparate players, personalities and egos involved.
After all was said and done, we received multiple offers and sold the properties for more than we expected! In addition to a phenomenal sales price Alexis also negotiated special terms we needed to make the deal work. Confidentiality regarding this was key.
Kudos to Alexis, who is a wonderful person and broker. In addition to gaining a new friend, I look forward to doing more business with her in the future.
—W. Nanson, Sold a Single Family home in Freehold, NJ, 2015
“Alexis was able to take a seemingly impossible challenge and make it easy and painless. Our project involved a combination of three sellers (one of which was extremely difficult and unreasonable) and a large corporate buyer. Alexis took total control from the beginning, and did not let go until the deal was signed, sealed, and delivered. This was not only about impressive real estate experience, it was also an example of sharp business skills.
—Andy P., Sold a home in Howell, NJ, 2015
“Alexis is amazing and I am delighted with the entire experience of working with her. We needed to rent out our Manhattan apartment very quickly as we were moving out of state, and we couldn't afford to pay for two residences. Alexis moved immediately and gave us some tips for how to make our apartment as appealing as possible, and before I knew it, we had an amazing tenant who signed a two-year lease!! She was also very knowledgeable regarding our building's arduous board application and helped to navigate throughout the entire process. Finally, I can be extremely hard to please, and Alexis not only met my perfectionistic standards, but surpassed them!
—Greer, Found a tenant for a home in Turtle Bay, 2015
“Before meeting Alexis in 2010, I encountered the usual litany of mediocrity, incompetence and dishonesty those of us outside the industry normally run into. Alexis is down to earth, honest, professional, knowledgeable, and all around awesome. She has been working with me since 2010 as my sale, purchasing and rental real estate professional and I can foresee working with her in the New York market indefinitely. Alexis has my highest possible recommendation.
—Sunny Nan, Sold a Multi-Family home in Financial District, 2010
“We had a wonderful experience with Alexis. She was professional and added a lot of value to our overall experience. From start to finish Alexis was aware of every detail and made our process very easy. We would highly recommend Alexis.
—Amy Groom, Helped to rent a Coop home in Chelsea, 02/2016
“Alexis was our primary broker on first renting out our unit when we moved out in 2011 and then with selling our unit in 2015. So we worked together for a total of 4 years.
Working with Alexis was very much like working with a friend/family member. Whether it was finding us a tenant (She found us 3 tenants) or a buyer for our home, or giving us great recommendations for home services (repair, paint, renovations) she was there for us every step of the way and helped us navigate the complicated and murky waters of the real estate market.
She worked tirelessly to represent our interests in all situations and went above and beyond to be our advocate whenever needed. (And also got us a great price for your home!)
Her warm personality was clearly evident from the beginning and shown through even in the toughest situations. My wife and I would highly recommend her to others and would work with her again because not only is she knowledgeable, professional, honest and trustworthy (which is rare in today's world), she will treat you like family.
