what my clients say

“Alex is extremely knowledgeable, professional and a real pleasure to work with! I especially appreciated his thoughtful and organized approach to helping me sell my house, and am thrilled with the result.”

“Alex was a joy to work with! He took the time to explain everything about buying our first condo and gave us honest feedback on properties we viewed. He was thorough, thoughtful and very patient as we took our time learning about the buying experience and eventually buying our first home. He’s an expert at his job, very personable and very professional. 10 out of 10, I would recommend him to anyone!”

“Alex has been very professional from start to finish in our Seattle condo search. He has helped us view numerous listings and was quick to collect market comparisons, condo documents, and reach out to seller agents on the ones we showed interest in. After we closed on a condo, he helped us schedule an inspection and even reached out to find a handyman to address issues found during the inspection that the seller declined to repair. While working with him, we did not feel pressured to make an offer on anything less than the ideal condo to us; he provided objective information on every unit that we saw and went out of his way to accommodate our schedules for viewings.”

“Alex did an excellent job. He marketed the property very effectively and we received multiple offers. His advice on staging, inspections, and repairs was exactly right and helped the process go smoothly. His attention to detail was above and beyond the call of duty.”

“Knowledgeable, absolutely dependable and always willing to go the extra mile. We always felt confident that the sale of our property is in the right hands with Alex. Everything went smooth and we sold at an excellent price to a solid buyer while enjoying our vacation. Thank you, Alex!”

“Working with Alex was a dream! I had interviewed several other agents before deciding on Alex, and while they were fine Alex really went above and beyond as far as explaining all of the various details and options. Even though my condo was relatively low in value compared to all of the houses going on the market, Alex made me feel like I was his most important client. In the end, I sold my condo for more than I thought possible and was very happy with the outcome.”

“Excellent communicator. Very helpful in any aspect of the sale process. Organized and timely, friendly and easy going. Thank you for the best experience. Will recommend to anyone who needs to sell fast and on the money.”

“We cannot recommend Alex more highly. We worked with Alex as we searched for a home over the course of 2 or 3 years. He was exceptionally patient as we toured home after home; we must have called him out for at least 2 dozen different tours over that time. He was always on time and very responsive. Alex was particularly effective when it came time to make an offer. We bid on three separate properties while working with Alex and each time he was super helpful every step of the way. He handled all the paperwork, offered advice when asked, and never pressured us one way or another, even when we backed out of an accepted offer at the last minute. When we finally had an offer accepted, Alex stuck with us throughout the closing period doing everything he could to make the process run smoothly. He was a tremendous help through the very end. Thank you, Alex, for everything you did for our family! It was an absolute pleasure working with you.”

“Alex went above and beyond for us!!! We had met with a different agent, prior to meeting Alex, who told us we’d be lucky if we got 250k for our condo. Alex got us 282k! But more important than that, he was friendly, attentive, prompt, honest and SO, SO great to work with! He made the whole process of selling our first home easy and seamless! I could not recommend him enough! I only wish he had a real estate license in CA so we could “keep” him!”

“Alex was great! His suggested listing price and plan worked out perfectly. Once it came time to review the offers he helped guide us through the process of finding the best and strongest offer and we were able to close in 3 weeks.”

“Alex was fantastic. Really helpful, always explaining the vast ins and outs in the buying process. Readily available. Had great suggestions and recommendations. Lots of experience around the offer process.”

“Alex is honest, trustworthy and very easy to work with. He goes above and beyond in taking care of all of the details. I highly recommend Alex!”

“If it wasn’t for Alex we would still be aimlessly looking for the right house and losing bids! Once we met Alex, I knew we were on the right track and sure enough less than 2 weeks later we won the bid on our house! We worked with lots of different agents over more than a year and none of them gave us the amount of information and advice that Alex provided for us on our first tour with him. He was able to advise and answer all our questions from the home’s structural integrity, to market predictions, to creating a winning bid. Alex’s friendly, enthusiastic, and patient personality made partnering with him so easy. He’s an expert in his field and when you’re buying a house, knowledge is power! We felt more empowered that we were making the right decisions with Alex’s support. We highly recommend him and we’ve been telling our house hunting friends that he’s the key to getting that house key!”

“Alex was fantastic throughout the entire process. He was quick with responses to every little question. His market knowledge was extremely important.”

“Alex is absolutely wonderful! He helped us buy our home in 2014 and then sell it in 2017. He’s extremely accommodating, helpful and knowledgeable. Alex will give you his honest input, but stresses that decisions regarding buying and selling a home are big ones and what’s most important is that you feel comfortable as the buyer/seller. Needless to say, we took all of his advice when buying and selling and could not be happier with the results of both!! My husband and I relocated to another state, but we would certainly work with Alex again if we could. We highly recommend Alex to all future home buyers and sellers!!”

“Alex’s knowledge and intuition were instrumental in our home-buying process. He’s truly professional and was willing to teach us as we went through the process, patiently answering all our questions.”

“We have worked with Alex on 3 other transactions over the last two years. He’s always there to guide us through the process. Highly recommended.”

“I would recommend Alex to anyone looking to find the home of their dreams. This was my first home purchase and he has provided me with his expertise, patience and honesty. I couldn’t have been more happy with this experience! Thank you!”

“Alex was great. He responded quickly to all of my questions and concerns. He was honest and upfront about any issues that were raised. He’s very personable and professional. I’ll definitely be using him in the future!”

“Knowledgeable, professional, approachable, and friendly. Alex provided great service.”

“Working with Alex was great, he is a true professional and is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure you get into the right home. I would certainly do business with him again. To that end, anyone who does business with Alex will not be disappointed. As a first time home buyer, Alex made the process go pretty smooth, it’s definitely been a pleasure working with him. Thanks again, Alex!”

“I have always recommended Alex and I can not think of a moment I would choose otherwise. Alex is by far the most attentive and genuinely concerned agent I have ever worked with and in my line I have worked with countless “highly recommended” agents. Combined they could only hope to acquire the respect and confidence I found with him.”

“Alex was great to work with. He helped us understand the market and took time to understand what we were looking for. He took us to view potential houses several times a week for over two months until we found the right home. He arranged for our inspections and handled the closing flawlessly. He followed up on everything he said he would, even after the close. We highly recommend Alex for any real estate needs.”

“Alex was the best real estate agent we could have ever hoped and wished for! His expertise is unparalleled, and he was game to stick with us while we hunted over a year for the perfect historic Seattle condo. While we were definitely ‘discerning’ (read: maybe a little difficult…), as home-buyers, Alex was always accommodating with his schedule, helpful, and extremely easy to reach. We always felt that he had our best interests at heart, and really wanted us to be happy with our new home.”

“Alex is not only the most knowledgeable realtor we know, his attention to detail, his skill as a negotiator, his understanding of human nature, and his tenacity, as well as his marketing savvy, certainly make him a one-in-a-million resource.”

“Alex was a pleasure to work with through the whole process.”

“Alex was an exceptional realtor. He was very prompt in answering any questions we had and helped us to quickly close on a property. He took pictures of prospective properties, was very thorough in his contract preparation, and helped us strike a fair deal in a very tough buyer’s market. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for a realtor in Seattle.”

“This is the third time we have worked with Alex when buying/selling a home. The reason we continue to go back is that he adds true value to the process of buying/selling a home. Throughout the process he is always quick to respond to our questions. He provided timely, honest, relevant information that helped us make decisions quickly so that we were able to make a competitive offer on the home. We couldn’t be any happier, and look forward to working with Alex again in the future.”

“Alex is more than just a Real Estate Agent, he was a trusted friend when it came to finding our first home. He came highly recommended and upon first meeting him we knew we’d made the right choice. He listened to what we were looking for, what our hopes and limits where, and took the time to help us find our dream home. I highly recommend Alex and WILL work with him again if the need arises.”

“Professional, engaging, stayed in contact regularly. Very friendly. I would recommend Alex very highly. I have bought and sold many houses over the last 40 years and Alex is as good as it gets!!”

“Alex is the calm eye of the storm in what can be a very trying and stressful home buying process. We used him for both the sale and purchase of homes in Seattle and couldn’t imagine going with anyone else. He’s thorough and professional, always maintaining a view of the big picture for you to return your focus to where it needs to be. His knowledge of the Greater Seattle area is both deep and broad. He uses this knowledge to truly put the correct buyers with the right sellers, creating a match which facilitates the sale smoothly.”

“Alex exceeded our expectations is every way. From last minute house visits to late in the afternoon walk-throughs, Alex was ready to help us. More than just locating a house, we were impressed with his knowledge in answering every question we had as first-time home buyers. He provided answers, recommended local businesses for fulfilling our different wants (floor refinishing, oil tank decommissioning, etc) once we purchased a house and gave us numerous tips to make our house even more enjoyable. He was extremely quick putting offers together with our criteria and thresholds and gave advice on making our offer “bullet-proof.” Communication, knowledge, availability and a genuine person make Alex a realtor we will use again if the situation arises.”

“We’ve worked with a number of agents over the years and Alex is in a class of his own. Not only is he excellent to work with, he is also the best marketer of houses and has a keen grasp of the overall strategy behind selling AND buying.”

“Alex was a pleasure to work with. Very professional and very responsive. He does a great job of listening to and addressing his clients needs and/or concerns. He delivered on everything he said he would, provided great communication and updates, and ultimately helped us achieve all of our goals.”

“Alex was truly a pleasure to work with. Throughout our search for the perfect house that met our extremely particular requirements, he was patient, responsive, and on numerous occasions went out of his way to show us properties that had just come onto the market. He gave us options we would not have thought of otherwise, proved himself extremely knowledgeable during negotiations, streamlined our purchase process by connecting us with mortgage brokers, insurance agents and others, and in all other ways impressed us, having played an essential role in helping us find our new home. He gets our highest recommendation!”

“Very experienced and professional. I could not recommend him more!”

“Absolutely amazing! My condo had been used as a rental for the last few years and I wanted to sell it. Alex gave me great ideas, referrals, and advice to sell. Would recommend Alex and can’t wait to work with him again!”

“It was a pleasure working with you to sell our home. From the very start, your professionalism and knowledge showed. We were able to put all the tips from your market analysis into practice to make our home as attractive as possible. We had nine buyers beating our doors down and were able to get more than the asking price! It was very exciting! Thanks for your help from the beginning to the end.

“Alex did a great job with selling our condo. It sold much faster than we anticipated, and we were grateful for his help and expertise throughout the entire experience. I would definitely recommend him to others.”

“Alex was very professional and had a great work ethic. Definitely would use him again. I highly recommend Alex.”

“Alex is a true professional that went above and beyond on more than one occasion during the process of my condo purchase. Being a first-time home-buyer in an unfamiliar state, he gave me solid advice and kept me fully informed throughout the process. Alex is trustworthy in every sense of the word! I will recommend him to friends as they begin purchasing their first homes and will absolutely contact him when I am ready to sell! Without reservation, I recommend Alex’s services.”

“This is the third time we have worked with Alex when buying/selling a home. The reason we continue to go back is that he adds true value to the process of buying/selling a home. Throughout the process he is always quick to respond to our questions. He provided timely, honest, relevant information that helped us make decisions quickly so that we were able to make a competitive offer on the home. We couldn’t be any happier, and look forward to working with Alex again in the future.”

“Beyond being a true professional and extremely knowledgeable agent, Alex has by far exceeded our expectation by providing a 360 degree consultation and 24/7 service. He has gone the extra mile to get us the home we were looking for, even in a very challenging market situation.”

“If I could rate this agent a 20 out of 10 I would!! He was so helpful, always went the extra mile. So nice, honest, and efficient!!”

“Highest recommendations. Alex has tremendous expertise and is very patient, a great combination for a real estate agent. He looked out for us every step of the way on multiple transactions over the last decade.”

“Alex was great to work with on buying my first place! He provided responsive communication each step on the way, from searching to close, which made me feel a lot more comfortable with the condo-buying process. He certainly has good knowledge of the market and got a good feel for what I was looking for, and I’m very happy with the end result!”

“Alex knows the entire Seattle area and was able to find what we were looking for very quickly. He stayed on top of the entire process to make a quick closing happen!”

“Alex is a true professional and a joy to work with. He did a great job in helping us find a new house to purchase and then list our old house for sale (and it sold in less than a week!).”

“Alex was a great realtor. He made himself available often and worked his schedule around ours to view houses. He was quick to respond if we were interested in a house, and we were able to view houses right away as they came onto the market. This was important since we bought our place when it was a seller’s market. Houses were selling days after being listed and we were able to make a quick offer on the perfect house for us. Negotiations were prompt and we were kept in the loop the whole time. After the house inspection Alex was able to negotiate an excellent concession to the price. There was some confusion between the seller and us as to the exact closing date, but Alex was quick to step in and clear everything up for us. When it comes time to look for a new place, if Alex is available we WILL be contacting him again.”

“Alex is terrific. He’s fast but calm, and he really listens. I have worked with him on not only one but two home purchases, and I plan to work with him for as many as I might do in the future, too. I trust him totally.”

“Alex did a great job, and helped us win our dream house in a highly competitive and aggressive market. He provided honest feedback, helpful suggestions and timely responses to all of our concerns and questions.”

“Alex is a consummate professional. The best thing about working with Alex was having complete peace of mind that we were in good hands and he was looking out for our best interests.”

“Alex was there step-by-step to help me get the house ready, suggesting improvements, inspections and staging. The house sold quickly and over the asking price. And he followed up right through closing.”

“Alex was very knowledgeable about the market and had spot on suggestions as to buying strategy. Alex made sure that everything I told him was taken into account as we pursued the purchase of my new home. He took responsibility for making things happen and for that I am very grateful. I would recommend Alex to anyone looking to purchase a home.”

“We bought and sold our first home with Alex and couldn’t be more impressed by the level of service he provided on both occasions. Not only is he a nice guy who we enjoy working with, but he is reliable and extremely diligent in making sure every aspect of the purchase and sale is in order. He is an expert on current market conditions and the challenges facing buyers and sellers, and is always willing to provide his honest opinion without telling us just what we want to hear. He is prompt in responding to questions and has been a great resource for information and referrals whenever needed. After receiving Alex’s guidance in making sure that our home showed well, we were shocked by how great our small place and the grounds looked in the beautiful marketing materials he produced. We will definitely be using Alex for our next home purchase and strongly recommend him to our friends and family.”

“Alex is fantastic! He worked very hard for me; first with a property that didn’t work out, then again with the house that I finally bought. He also was the buying agent for my daughter’s home purchase, and we are sold on Alex’s first-rate customer service.”

“Alex is an awesome broker very proactive, knowledgeable about the market, and nice to deal with.”

“Extremely helpful & professional. Very knowledgeable and supportive throughout the sale process.”

“Alex was an informed, patient and professional broker for the sale of our home and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others. We were very pleased with all aspects of his service.”

“Alex was extremely thorough in his research of the market/neighborhood that we were looking to buy in. He really went the extra mile in delivering an offer that was acceptable. We could rely on him everyday- he even checked up on us when he was on vacation in Germany! He’s very easy to work with, and we were extremely impressed with his expertise, professionalism and integrity. I would recommend Alex to anybody that is looking to buy or sell a house.”

“Alex was always professional and a great resource. Moving out of state, provided its own challenges for the sale. Alex was always on top of the paperwork and a great ally to have. He made himself available to supervise the repairs needed, and worked with a staging company to stage the property in our absence. There were 2 other units for sale in our complex when we listed our condo. They had both been on the market for more than a month. Within the first week, we had a full price offer on our home. We definitely feel that Alex and his professionalism are a huge reason for the quick sale. He was always flexible, helpful, and had a great attitude. Now that we are in California, he has helped us find a realtor here as well. We would recommend Alex to anyone and everyone! He went above and beyond many times and made us feel as though he would do no less.”

“Alex sold our home in three weeks in a tough, rapidly falling real estate market in Seattle. He made suggestions for simple improvements that dramatically increased the home’s appeal, then created the best sell sheet I’d ever seen. He knew the marketing strengths of our neighborhood better than we did, generating a lot of traffic of qualified buyers. He understood how to price our home, and navigated a tricky multiple offer situation that ultimately resulted in a sale for more than we had hoped for. I wholeheartedly recommend Alex and will surely hire him again.”

“Alex is an incredibly professional and trustworthy agent. He excels at abstracting away the unnecessary details, which was important since I was traveling in Tibet the entire time the condo was on the market, and had only sporadic internet access. With minimal input, he assembled a fantastic marketing campaign and was able to command top dollar for my condo in the declining Seattle market. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services to anyone in the area.”

“Alex was professional, knowledgeable, and at all times patient with our many questions as first-time home buyers. He was accommodating and willingly worked around our busy work schedules. When we were hung-up on a property that turned out to be a bad choice for our needs, Alex never pushed us to move and allowed us to make the critical decisions. He advocated forcefully, and effectively on our behalf when we negotiated additional allowances following the home inspection. We will be recommending Alex to our friends who are looking for an experienced realtor.”

“He was endlessly patient and helpful. We dealt with a sale in WA with me being in Michigan. Lots of challenges with times zones and distance. He worked with me and the family I had locally in Seattle. Did far and beyond the call of duty and was always prompt and professional but yet warm and caring! Will use him again no doubt and already am recommending him.”

“Alex has worked for us very diligently with great results. We feel comfortable with him and rely on his expertise. We will always recommend him.”

“Alex Eckardt’s earnest efforts to find the right house for us kept our spirits high throughout the roller-coaster process in a low inventory market. His adaptability to our evolving ideas of what “home” is to first time home buyers kept us focused on the important details of a long-term investment. We could not be more pleased with the home we bought, and felt that Alex coached and represented us to be attractive buyers in the seller’s eyes.”

“Alex was a great help for my husband and I as first time home buyers. He was hardworking in a challenging market to help us find the right home for our family. His knowledge of both real estate and the Seattle market assisted us in making our decision and made us feel comfortable buying our first home. He also showed great patience when working with us, which we appreciated greatly. Through the process, Alex became a good friend. My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone and will definitely look to Alex again when we are in the market for our next home.”

“We really enjoyed working with Alex! He taught us a lot about the home buying process; he was very responsive and patient in doing so. When the time came to put an offer on a house, he helped us through the process and everything went smoothly.”

“Alex is a pro! Excellent communication, quick response, knowledgeable, and impressive ability to work through some difficult hurdles to get me across the finish line with my new home.”

“I now live out of state from where I was selling my condo and Alex took care of all the things I couldn’t be there for in person. He is great and easy to work with!!”

“Very knowledgeable about Seattle in every way, and very prompt with his services.”

“Alex was great to work with and helped make my home sale quick and easy. I would definitely recommend Alex to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”

“Alex really helped me through the entire process, from finding the house and all the way to closing. This was my first time, so it was really nice to have someone with me along the way who’s dependable and trustworthy.”

“Alex provided a first-rate service in helping us to find our Condo and managing the interactions with the selling agent. He was always available, on-time, and very professional in everything he did. He is also a thoroughly nice and decent bloke to work with!”

“Alex is a great partner to have in your search for the right home. He’ll work hard, work smart, give you good feedback, educate you on all aspects of the home buying process, get right back to you when you need something and can be trusted completely. Choose Alex for your home purchase or sale.”

“Alex was a great agent to have. We would email him a listing and within hours we’d hear back from him. He was always very accessible to answer any questions we had. We felt confident in his knowledge throughout the entire process. We would definitely recommend him to friends and family and use him again the future!”

“Alex goes way above and beyond what you would expect from a real estate agent. He is very thorough from step to step of what can be a scary process for a first-time home buyer. Highly recommended!”

“After listing my rental duplex with Alex, he took over like a pro, held an Open House, then we had several full-price offers a short time afterwards. He had a good rapport with my tenants, so that they cooperated. I had tried to sell this duplex with another broker a few months earlier, but unsuccessfully. Alex is also quite knowledgeable when it comes to questions about misc. aspects of real estate and he replied promptly to my e-mails.”

“Alex helped me find my home, and I am very pleased with the professional service I received from him. Alex was very thorough in researching the homes that were on the market, and really made the extra effort to get to know me, and discover what it was that I was looking for in a home. He was extremely patient with me, and when we finally found the home I wanted, he was fast and efficient in bringing the deal to a close. I highly recommend this agent. Thanks, Alex!”

“Alex is a pro. He helped me buy my first house and then my first investment property. All within my tight budget.”
