Testimonials for Alex West

alex west real estate professional 530.214.6100

Alex West provided an outstanding level of service and expertise from start to finish in our recent Tahoe lakefront purchase. When it comes to Tahoe-area real estate an important rule in selecting an agent is "knowledge, knowledge, knowledge" – specifically LOCAL knowledge and how to uncover outstanding lakefront properties and buying opportunities. That's exactly what Alex West provided. Alex not only knew exactly what we were looking for but worked diligently with us and constantly kept an eye out for the perfect property at the right price. Beyond finding just the right property Alex made sure all bases were covered and held our hand through every step of the process - all the way through closing on our Tahoe dream house. Thank you Alex for your diligence and professionalism. We will be more than happy to share our experience with anyone who wishes to call on us. - Walter and Carol B.

“Alex was recommended to me by a friend and I am glad we worked with him. He sold our Tahoe home in a tough market. He got us our price in a timely manner; he communicated well with us all through the process and advised us well on negotiations. We did all this communication via e-mail and phone. If you are looking for an agent who will be on your team and guide you through the whole process, Alex is your guy. I will refer him to any of my friends in the future.” - Les M.

Alex: We are back in Sacramento, and have been through 112 degree heat pulling a loaded trailer. We have had time to talk about our experience thus far in the transaction that you are helping us with. We couldn’t have done this without you. You are one super fella and we sincerely appreciate you. - Elliot and Delores S.

- Cliff and Michelle M.

My wife and I just bought our first house two months ago. Alex made what could have been one the most stressful experiences in my life an enjoyable one. He would always give his honest opinion and intertwined with his unique and truly "local" perspective. I would recommend Alex to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the Tahoe region. He is a tireless worker and has a great understanding of the particulars of the game. - Jeff and Ilissa C.

My husband and I just happened to luck into getting Alex as our agent. We are longtime residents in the Tahoe area and know many other local agents but we thought it might be better to have someone without personal ties. The great thing about Alex is that it is personal! He made us feel comfortable with the process and he is very knowledgeable. He helped us be patient and was a great go-between with other agent for us. He gave us great referrals for tradespeople and made sure we knew what to expect. We love our new home, thanks, Alex! - Doug and Dawn B.

Alex understood our needs and didn't waste time showing us properties that were not of interest to us. He is "quick" and has excellent follow-through. We will use him in a minute when we sell or buy another home. - Mark and Madeline S.
