Letters of Recommendation
Beside to being very professional and down to earth, Alex Montelongo and Chad Chambers of AM Real Estate Group (Coldwell Banker) made our home buying process so easy and stress-free. They are very knowledgable about the real estate market and extremely precise on what the fair market value of our home was.
Alex & Chad recommended an offer purchase price of our home which resulted in an immediate acceptance (the very next day!) from the seller...Wow!
We are ECSTATIC with the price that we paid for our house. We received a great home loan with a low interest rate and APR thru Alex and Chad's loan team. The home inspection report came back clean and our house was move-in ready. Our house hit every checkbox that we had on our wishlist and more. Furthermore, we were able to Close and move into our new house AHEAD OF SCHEDULE and on budget.
We highly recommend Alex & Chad to any family looking for a home to purchase. We are so grateful to have met and have them help us buy our home.

Our experience with AM Real Estate Group was amazing. This was our second house in 40 years, so of course the process for buying a home has changed quite a bit.
Alex found this house for us and it is just what we wanted. He and his group walked us through the escrow and made the transaction painless.
Alex is a top notch agent, professional, thorough, and honest. I don't think we will move again, but if we do we will use the A M Real Estate Group.

Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in San Gabriel, CA.
It was a pleasure to work with Alex. As well as being a nice guy, he's very knowledgeable about the market and all the processes involved with selling a home. Even when I wanted to throw in the towel on selling my families home he stuck it out with me and help me get back on track. Nearly 2 years later, we finally closed the deal. He answered every question, returned every call immediately, He was AWESOME. Will definitely work with him again.
We were so fortunate to have found Alex Montelongo when we buy our house. As our realtor, he helped us get a good deal on the property and explained every little detail on the property. We would definitely recommend Alex Montelongo to anyone in the market to purchase a home. We will definitely look for Alex Montelongo when we have future purchases. The best part is that we have a new family and a good friendship. I just want to say thank you so much Alex Montelongo, you are the best.
201 E. Grand Ave. San Gabriel, Ca.
"We hadn't bought a new home in nearly 20 years when our family finally decided it was time to upgrade and look for something larger to accommodate our needs. By not being in the market for so long and therefore not knowing what to expect and with so much changing over that time, it was a blessing to come into contact with Alex! We contacted Alex when we saw that he was the selling agent for a home that caught our eye. After deciding that this particular home was not the right one for our family Alex worked tirelessly to show us several other properties until we found the perfect home to suit our needs. He was very professional, punctual and always returned our correspondences in a timely manner any time a question arose even when he was busy with his own family's schedules. Thank you kindly, Alex. Would highly recommend looking up Alex for any of your real estate needs."
I am grateful for the opportunity to work with you recently on a transaction where you represented the buyers and I, the sellers. From the beginning to the end, you conducted yourself in a manner that made the transaction, smooth, transparent and most importantly cooperative. Too often, agents lose focus on working together and there is an adversarial aspect to the business. Thanks to you, the focus remained on the getting the deal done that was beneficial to all parties involved. Your diligence and professionalism are an asset to your business.
I look forward to working with you again.
Oliver Wright, Realtor
Alex is a hands-on Agent. He was always just a phone call or email away. When I had a question, and there were many, he was patient with me. Selling one's house is a life changing and emotional experience. It is important that you feel your Agent understands that. When I had surgery in the middle of the selling process, Alex worked out a schedule that would not impact my recovery period any more than was necessary. I wish Alex the very best and thank him for guiding me through it all with kindness...I now think of him as friend.
Congratulations on our closed escrow.
I am honored and privileged to work with you on this transaction. Your knowledge and understanding of the neighborhood market and your skills and confidence to communicate to your buyer and to myself the listing agent, got your offer accepted among the competition. You maintain your professionalism throughout the process, which I admire a lot.
I wish we can work again in the future.
Meriam Martinez | Realtor
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.

Alex helped me sell and purchase a home. He's very knowledgeable and will use his services again when I move to a bigger home as well as refer him to my friends.
Alex was referred to me by a friend after I had listed my home for rent with another agent and not been able to find tenants. He came to my home, was extremely professional and listed my property for rent within a few days. The pictures he took were very detailed and really flattered my home. He was truthful about what he thought I could rent my home for and confidentially told me he could have it rented within 30 days. He scheduled 2 different days to show the house and had many applicants from just those 2 showings. He was able to get my home rented within the 30 days he promised.
He helped me outline all the necessary details in my lease agreement and was thoughtful about all the things i would have wanted to consider. He continues to follow-up with me to see how things are going with my tenants even after his job is done. I would recommend Alex to anyone I know!
"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."

"I met Alex at an open house showing. He was very knowledgeable of the market and the area I was shopping in. He offered his services and I chose to work with him. I'm very happy I did. The buying process was seamless and he was always available to answer any calls I had; he made the home buying process easy for me. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home."

- After 22 yrs. in a large family home, we decided to downsize. We selected Alex Montelongo Real Estate Group as our broker. Alex not only sold our home within 3 weeks of listing, but also helped us buy our new home. Alex and his associates were professional and extremely knowledgeable of the So. Cal real estate market. He guided us through the process of both escrows and was always available when called upon to answer questions and address the issues and concerns related to both sales. We would highly recommend Alex Montelongo Real Estate Group.

I cannot pass this opportunity to thank you for everything you did before and during our recent escrow together. You brought us a ready, willing and able buyer after making sure that there was a complete qualification. We were able to work out all of the details, timelines, and financial issues as a team. I knew from the beginning that I was working with a true professional. This resulted in everyone being happy. Please feel free to give my phone number to anyone looking for references be a buyer, seller, or cooperating agent. I am happy to give you the highest recommendation
I look forward to the opportunity to working with you again in the future.

- Alex Montelongo started my buying process by expediently contacting me upon a strong referral. There was one property I was interested in and thought we would just view the one unit. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with his work ethic when he called me right back to let me know he had scheduled viewings for a total of three properties. This set the tone for the whole experience. Throughout the process, Alex, maintained the highest level of professionalism and guided the process as if I were one of his family members. He is tough and fair and will always be fully engaged to ensure the needs of his clients are met with the real estate transaction as he writes up offers, responds to counter-offers and in between makes himself available to answer any questions. He even took the time to read through pages of HOA documents to determine the status of parking allocation for a unit. Alex Montelongo is the complete package and supports his clients with the utmost integrity, highest skill set, talent, and generosity of spirit. He represents the best of what it means to be a real estate agent and truly experiences the joy of his clients when the transaction is completed and property keys are transferred. Having Alex as part of your real estate team is a good indicator you will be successful in your property purchase or sale. I highly recommend him to real estate property buyers/sellers as someone who will get the job done and see you through from initial property viewings, to escrow closing and transfer of property keys.

I was a first time home buyer when I met Alex Montelongo and it was a great experience overall. I interviewed a few Real Estate Agents to see who was the most fitting for me. He was the only one that mentioned to me that he can find me a home within my price range in 3 months, And he delivered! He is a very patient person, always accommodating and always goes out of his way to get more information about a property, such as permits. He is also a very resourceful person. He knows a lot of people that can help for different situations. It is easy to tell that he has massive experience in this industry. I am a very happy homeowner and will definitely contact him again whenever I want to buy or sell a house.
Respectfully, Marvin Leiva
To Whom It May Concern, As Alex Montelongo's Broker, I have been extremely pleased to have Alex working for us and to be associated with him. He's extremely professional and ethical and always has his customer's interests as his #1 priority. Alex's attention to detail is rare in our industry and makes him stand out from all other agents. I would strongly recommend Alex to any seller or buyer knowing they will receive the care and attention they deserve
Sincerely, Kris Conrad, Broker
I am very happy with Alex Montelongo's marketing and renting my triplex apartment. He is very good at finding qualified renters. He is very easy to work with. He goes out of his way to help us make the right decision on who to rent to and how much to charge.
Jerry and Melanie Smith
Through my personal experience dealing with Alex Montelongo, I very well understood the patience, resources, and most of all his immediate knowledge to answers. The help we received was far more than expected, Maria & I will continue to know the right choice is Alex Montelongo. Alex showed us what experience is all about. We had questions and Alex had reliable answers. The advice we got was "Right On." "Time is what I got" and "I enjoy what I do" Alex told me. And for that I commend him. It is difficult to find the right person or agent when purchasing a home, but when you are good at what you do, it's the time you spend with people, especially when it's a waiting game. Alex always returned my phone calls, with the information that I needed. You really do serve as a guide to a new home. Maria and I have made a decision in keeping you as our agent indefinitely.
Thank you, Maria & Robert Rider
Alex went out of his way to help my family find a home to rent. We were relocating to Long Beach and having trouble navigating the rental market from a distance. Alex went above and beyond to help us find a place. He informed me about good areas to live that would be suitable for my family. When I look to buy a place in Long Beach I will again choose Alex as my agent.
Isabel Pineda Client, Renter
To Whom It May Concern: It is an honor to write a letter about our real estate agent, Mr. Alex Montelongo. My husband and I experienced service above and beyond what we expected and that type of dedication deserves recognition. In a day and age when honest, considerate and thorough service is hard to find; we knew we found a gem in Alex. Alex impressed us from the very first time we met him. He was professionally dressed, kind and very prepared to show us around Long Beach. His knowledge of the area and real estate was evident immediately. We had a new baby and Alex really accommodated us when we met to look at houses. He was extremely patient with our schedule and the fact that a baby can slow things down a bit. He has a family himself and that was evident in the way he treated us, and our newborn son. Most importantly, Alex is an extremely organized, honest and ethical agent. He listened to all of our questions and concerns and never once made us feel foolish. We could count on Alex for honest answers. He was always organized and kept us on track through the whole process. He walked us through every single step. Furthermore, Alex always dealt with us, and the sellers honestly. He never cut corners or had even a hint of unethical or dishonest behavior. Alex made our home buying experience wonderful. We recommend him to our friends and feel so blessed to have found him. He is not only a wonderful agent but, a great man.
Sincerely, Reid and Andrea Proctor

Dear Alex, I wanted to thank you very much on the wonderful service you provided me with in selling my old home and purchasing my new one. Your expertise and excellent service was truly "one-of-a-kind." In all of my real estate transactions, I have never had an agent work so diligently and professionally as you did. In addition, your willingness to go above and beyond (i,e. offering to clean up and paint) was surprising and impressive. You be sure to let your branch manager know that I believe you are his #1 Agent! Not to mention, you got my house sold in less than 7 days, in this slow sellers market, in December! I'd like to see another agent achieve that. I look forward to working with you on all of my real estate transactions. Keep up the great work!
Kindest regards, Alicia Ross

RE: Letter of Recommendation for Alex Montelongo
Dear Mr. Alex Montelongo: Now that the dust has settled, I can only begin by once again thanking you for making the purchase of our new property 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 our behalf. You are exceptional; you went above and beyond to make sure we are 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, comforted us at the most difficult times, and kept 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 client’s needs) agent. If we ever need a Realtor again, we would not hesitate for a second to call on your services again. We will definitely recommend you enthusiastically to any seller/buyer. All who serve the public should take their cue from you!
With warm gratitude, The Zamudio Family

To Whom It May Concern, I bought my first house recently and had the pleasure of working with Alex Montelongo as my Realtor. I never thought buying a home could be so easy. If I did, I would have done it much sooner. Alex was with me every step of the process. He was committed to doing what ever was needed to get me into the house without the worry, stress, and hand wringing that is always associated with becoming a first time home buyer. I'm convinced that Alex was the perfect Realtor for me. He answered all of my questions, and calmed my every fear. He even made me laugh along the way. Now I am living in the best house ever! Life is good.
Thank you, Stacey Lawson

Dear Prospective Home Buyer, we recommend Alex Montelongo to be your personal Real Estate Professional to guide you to your dream home. This purchase was our third home buying experience and Alex is the best in his field. Alex was able to seamlessly negotiate a great deal with the sellers. One of the key highlights of our experience with Alex is we never had to follow-up with him, he always kept us informed of key developments. 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

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 stress off of our shoulder 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 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 we are proud to have you represent us. We will not hesitate to refer you to our friends and family, business partners and anyone in the market for a new home. The service you provide is OUTSTANDING. Please don't hesitate to have anyone call us for a referral. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

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 into 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 as being both a seller and a buyer. Alex made the entire process so much easier. His experience and hard work is greatly appreciated.

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 touch ups to make this home presentable and meet the current expectations of our prospective buyers. Your persistence 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 definitely are the realtor of choice. Best of luck for the future in all of your endeavors.

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 extremely 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.

To Whom It May Concern, My name is Cetric D. Fletcher, and I recently hired Alex Montelongo as my agent in the selling of my home. The house had previously been listed with another agent for three months, NO SALE. Alex took over the listing, 10 days later, I had three offers to choose from. I accepted one of these offers and the house is SOLD!!! I recommend Alex 100%. He is the hardest working kid you've ever seen. He won't stop until the deal is done. He came over and did the small repairs out of his own pocket, painting, touch ups, etc.... He is as we used to say a real "Go-Getter" If I have any more real estate matters, he is in my rolodex and he'll be the first one I call.
Mr. C. Fletcher

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, Ca. that belonged to my uncle, now deceased. I was in charge of handling my uncle’s affairs, but I live in Phoenix, Arizona. Without Alex, I don't 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 that 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 imagine that any other agent would have been half as conscientious as 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's a jewel and I'm terribly grateful to him.
Sincerely Yours, Carla Maningas

To Whom it May Concern, 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 I thought I pretty much knew all of 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 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 for me 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.

To Whom it May Concern, 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 toward 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.

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 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 acurate and met my goal of selling the house within a certain time frame. You were able to schedule all meetings and interactions at my convenience which was very 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 services and would not hesitate to contact you again should the need arise.

Alex, I just wanted to take a moment and say how impressed we were with your professionalism and knowledge of the market. Thank you for directing us through the process. You helped us to understand what to expect through each step. We valued your opinion whenever we had questions. Mostly, I appreciated the extra attention to detail during the negotiating process. Going over to the property on several occasions to check small items of concern really showed your investment with us as clients. It was a pleasure working with you.
Best wishes, Nicole Heidel Lakewood, Ca.

To Whom it May Concern, As a first time homebuyer, 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
To whom it may concern,
I recently had a transaction located on 6152 Hayter Ave. 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 the start to finish. His name is Alex Montelongo and he holds a license with Coldwell Banker Star Realty in Seal Beach. 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 si 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.

Re: Letter of Recommendation for Alex Montelongo 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 ready to give up looking for a home, as 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 first 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 middles person through it all, negotiating with the seller’s 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.

Alex, We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We couldn't have done it without you. We want to thank you for sticking by us through thick and thin. A home buying experience isn't an easy thing. You made it easy for us. I just want your other clients to know that, no matter what the obstacle is, you will help them get through it. I know I will be referring you to our friends and family and we will be calling you with our next purchase.

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 that the listing had expired. Thank goodness, Alex showed up at 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
To whom it may concern, I highly recommend Alex Montelongo to you as your Buyers Agent. Alex is pro-active, loyal, intelligent, hard-working, committed, patient and a good listener. We met Alex in one of the properties and we liked his wealth of knowledge in Real Estate properties in surrounding areas of Los Alamitos. After selecting the property, we had a choice of choosing our own agent. I was about to choose a Redfin Agent hoping for some cash back. Redin's pay-back money is comparatively negligible, and their service, I don't know how it's going to be. We want a real practical person who can work for us and be there for us. Then we selected Alex. We found good qualities in him such as listening to our requirements and comments and offer his ideas to us. If needed, he can be very helpful in clearing your thought process as well. He helped us in every stage of the home buying process as and when 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/Closing Process, and during these times Alex was so calm, patient and managed the situation well by being on top of the process. He is a good candidate to work under pressure. When I prefer to work with someone, I want that person to be experienced, honest, and competitive, 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 with Alex.
Thank you, Raj & Sravani Kode Family

To whom it may concern: Upon our decision to search for property in Long Beach, my husband and I were highly encouraged to contact Mr. Montelongo. The referral was based on a history of respect and personal admiration for Alex. From the beginning, our experience with Alex was a positive one. It was evident that he was very knowledgeable both in his profession and the area in which we wanted to buy. He listened to us, was friendly, and went out of his way to make our home-buying experience a positive one. Alex displayed the utmost integrity and remained devoted to achieving the most favorable outcome for us. We highly recommend Alex Montelongo for any property acquisition. We are convinced that without him and his guidance, we would not have had as successful result as we did.
Sincerely, Tony and Linda Spik
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. 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 me, informed on what was happening. Alex made the process fast and easy, and explained everything along the way. 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.

To Whom It May Concern, I would like to take a moment to tell about my experience working with Alex Montelongo on a recent transaction that we worked together on. My name is Alicia Seyfred, and I am a licensed California Real Estate Agent who has been in the business for 14 years. Seldom do we hear about working relationships between colleagues. Most importantly, a professional critique or a reference of how an Agent is viewed amongst their peers. Alex is extremely professional and personable it is a great asset of his, he gets along with all types of personalities. He is very knowledgeable, professional, assertive, experienced and as I said before extremely personable. I took a liking to him and his big personality right away. We established great communication and teamwork from the beginning to the end. Alex worked very hard with a seller that had a very hard personality to work with. He had to really try and keep each party calm in some very stressful parts of the transaction. On this transaction and he did everything in his power to keep the process moving in a forward motion. Whenever paperwork was needed or when a question was asked, he was extremely quick to reply. He kept his clients informed and was able to anticipate and remedy any issues that arose. Alex showed great work ethic, he works hard for his clients and it shows. I wish that more Agents were like him. It was my pleasure to work with Alex and I recommend his to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

To Whom It May Concern, I had the privilege of working with Alex Montelongo as my realtor when looking to sell my father’s home in Lakewood, CA. The sale was a probate sale so it involved a few more steps than a traditional sale. Alex was very professional and took the time necessary to get my home sold regardless of the court approval requirement. I appreciated his ability to advise me along the way of all the steps during the process. One of Alex’s best traits is his great communication skills, I always knew exactly what was happening and the next steps. Alex was easy to get in touch with and very easy to work with. Alex is a true professional and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alex Montelongo to any person who is looking to buy/sell a home or if you are in a probate situation. I was so pleased with his services that we will be using Alex to find our replacement home.

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
Alex, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a most pleasant and seamless sales transaction on my listing at 320 Lincoln in Huntington Beach. From the moment you showed this property, until the day we closed escrow, you presented yourself with the utmost in professionalism and transparency. It is rare to find a Realtor with such a high level of ethics and honesty, combined with your hard work and enthusiasm. I also applaud your team which included a top notch lender and a very efficient transaction coordinator. Your clients can rest assured that they are in the very best of hands. I look forward to working with you again soon and wish you the best of luck for a prosperous year.
Warmest Regards, Roni Raczkowski Teles Properties Newport Beach, Ca.

Alex is a real go-getter. I felt like he wanted to sell my home as much as I did. His knowledge and use of electronic media is above and beyond the best. I highly recommend Alex for any of your real estate needs.

Through my personal experience dealing with Alex Montelongo, I very well understood the patience, resources, and most of all his immediate knowledge to answers. The help we received was far more then expected, Maria & I will continue to know the right choice is Alex Montelongo. Alex showed us what experience is all about. We had questions and Alex had reliable answers. The advice we got was "right on". "Time is what I got" and "I enjoy what I do" Alex told me. And for that I commend him. It is difficult to find the right person or agent when purchasing a home, but when you are good at what you do, its the time you spend with people, especially when its a waiting game. Alex always returned my calls, with the information that I needed. You really do serve as a guide to a new home. Maria and I have made a decision in keeping you as our agent indefinitely.
Thank you, Maria & Robert Rider
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.
Alex worked very quickly and was able to get a home right away after we had been through 3 previous Realtors with no luck. We had been looking for a home for 8 months and as soon as we selected Alex, we were closed on our new house within 45 days.
Jesse Miller Client, Buyer
I am very happy with Alex Montelongo's marketing and renting my triplex apartment. He is very good at finding qualified renters. He is very easy to work with. He goes out of his way to help us make the right decision on who to rent to and how much to charge.

I do not live in California although I had property there. Alex helped me obtain some services (before listing) without any expectations of obtaining a listing. Eventually, I did list the property with him. As you may determine there are quite a few items that need to be attended to as a seller. I have to say the sale and all details of the sale were seamless mostly because Alex handled everything. I never had to come to California. I had a renter in the property and Alex dealt with him through every aspect of the transaction. He represented me at all stages of the sale and communicated with me regularly. I would seek the services of Alex if I were looking to buy or sell property in the Southern California area.
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.

It was a pleasure to work with such an experienced Real Estate Professional as Alex. He is highly skilled in negotiating and goes the extra mile for his clients. I also appreciate his follow up and great attention to detail. Alex's positive attitude is contagious and I hope I have the opportunity to work with Alex again in the near future.

I recently used Alex as my realtor to help sell my father’s home via a probate sale and buy a replacement home for our family. I fully recommend Alex as he was very professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. The probate sell was lengthy but he was there every step of the way to ensure things moved along. The purchase was a lot faster and within 2 months of actively looking he helped us secure a new home. I'm very happy I decided to go with Alex as our realtor.

Letter of Recommendation for Alex Montelongo I met Alex through my work. With his great follow up and consistently checking in with me to see when I'll be ready to purchase a home I finally gave in. For the past few years I’ve been preparing myself to make the biggest purchase of my life. Alex helped guide me in what to do and what to expect with the process. As a single woman and a first time buyer, Alex made me feel confident and re-assured me that I can do it on my own. Alex made the process seamless and smooth and I didn’t feel pressured. Even after the purchase of my home we still keep in touch. Need a locksmith! Call Alex! Need an exterminator! Call Alex! Through the process we have become dear friends. I highly recommend Alex as an awesome realtor who actually cares for your well-being and is very knowledgeable of the industry.
Sincerely, Sophie Nou
I recently closed the sale of my father's home with Alex as our agent. He was very easy to work with, had wonderful suggestions, and was on top of everything throughout the entire process. He and his assistant were very professional. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for a hands-on knowledgeable professional.
Sincerely, Karen Nielsen Higgins, ESQ.
Alex was amazing to work with. He was extremely knowledgeable with every question we had. We went into the experience with an idea of what financing we were going to use. Thanks to Alex we were able to find some great options for financing for the best rates and terms. We strongly recommend Alex Montelongo for your next purchase.

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 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, Julie Colhoun, Jerry & Janice Valsvig

Within The past year and a half, I have worked with three different realtors. The first two I worked with encouraged me to consider homes in impoverished, neglected neighborhoods because of my income. They hardly communicated with me during the search most of the time I had to send them properties that I was interested in. While talking about these frustrations with a coworker, she suggested I talk to Alex, I have to say, It was a great decision. Alex has been the most helpful, communicative, and efficient of all. After filling Alex in on my finances, he assured me that within three months I would find a home. to be honest, I thought he was kidding. Three months later, I was already filling out the paper work for a home I was excited to move into. He and his team looked for homes in areas I wanted to live in, frequently updated me, and invested in my search despite my price range. They were quick, proactive, and cared about my priorities. I would recommend Alex to anyone. Call him if you're really interested in buying a home he can make it happen, rich or poor.
Dear home buyers and home seller,
I would like to share my personal experience with you working with Alex Montelongo and Kate Kostapapas. Alex and Kate were my real estate agents in selling one of my property during very difficult time of coronavirus pandemic. I was not expecting to sell the property easily and quickly because the situation. Alex and Kate were surprising me with their real estate expertise, honest charismatics and professional enthusiasm. The property was sold smoothly and on time. We communicated on phone or in person like friends. I got my answers and direction from them any time when I called. Buying or selling a home is stressful. Kate were there for me in every step of the process and guided me with her real estate experiences. I highly recommend Alex and Kate to you. They are an amazing team there to help you. You will be satisfied and fulfilled by their service in all aspects.
Alex and Kate knocked it out of the park for us! My ex and I were having a lot of trouble selling our home. It languished for months on the market. Eventually we met Alex and Kate in a zoom interview and were impressed with their plan of attack and knowledge of the market and the area. Their team's expertise got us a great offer that we accepted within a week and the AM Real Estate Group did everything in their power to make sure it closed. We are so grateful we hired them and made this happen. Hardest working team in the biz.

Alex, Thank you for all your hard work and help on getting this file closed. These buyers were so lucky they had you! You out fires and overcame road blocks that others would of given up on!!! It was great to work with you!
Deborah Tussing, Lender
Alex is very helpful, he will get the job done. I was never unsure or felt out of the loop. He will tell you the truth, good or bad. I felt he also had my best interest at heart and never second guessed anything on his end. He was always available to answer questions and concerns. I will be using him again and having anyone I know go with him. There's isn't one negative thing I could say about Alex
Alex and his team are the best and we would highly recommend him to sell your home. Upon meeting Alex and his team they immediately make you feel at ease with their friendliness, respect, honesty and professionalism. You can tell that he loves his job and he has passion for what he does. Alex and a member of his team were always in contact with us on our road to selling our Townhome, easily guiding us through the paperwork and was very patient and knowledgeable on any question, feeling or thoughts we had. We had a few hurdles to go through due to Covid 19 but he handled them with the utmost professionalism, despite the social distancing and stay at home orders that were placed on all of us. He has gone above and beyond by calling us daily and making sure our move was going smoothly and even reached out to us a few days after our move to see how we were doing. I would definitely use Alex and his team again in the future and recommend him to anyone that asks for a Realtor.
It makes a huge difference when you work with someone who knows what they are doing. Before having Alex and his team list my house for sale, my house was on the market for 122 days with no offers. So, I made the choice to let my agent go and contacted Alex for his help. Alex and his team did so much more than my last agent. They were very professional and had a plan to get my house back on the market and sold as quickly as possible. In less than 24 hours of my house being back on the market I got an offer for the full asking price of (480k). Thanks for all your help Alex!
My family and I greatly appreciate your help with purchasing our first home. Your professionalism and knowledge of the market exceeded our expectations. You are very dependable as you would return my calls promptly. At the start I thought that this process could be stressful due to my busy schedule, but your flexibility was crucial in making this process as smooth as possible. Just as you were recommended to me by my parents, I will recommend you to anyone interested in buying a home. Again, thank you for your services.
I was looking for an experienced agent to assist me in buying a home. Alex Montelongo was recommended to me through an associate, and he was great to work with throughout the process. He took the time to go over the home-buying documents, answered any questions I had in a timely fashion, and traveled to the property every week to observe their construction and send me images and updates. He is very professional and courteous, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
Alex Montelongo was superb, and got our home sold in less time than we thought it would take. Before we hired Alex, we interviewed 4 other Realtors in the area. Alex stood out among the others, his personality and attitude are genuine and he loves what he does and it shows. He was very responsive whenever we needed answers, and was always updating us on the status of our home sell. He takes great pride in what he does, his marketing plan is excellent and the pictures he takes are of great quality including the drone aerial photographs that he provided. This is our second home sold in the last 5 years and Alex made the process stress free, his estimated value of the home was very accurate. We listed our home in June and a few days later we had a few offers, 30 days later our home was sold for full price. My wife and I are tremendously thankful, we could now move closer to her family in Utah. Thanks Alex if we ever come back to California, we will definitely contact you to help us in any real state needs.
Lorenzo & Jamne Meza
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
Alex sold me my house in his neighborhood! not only is he a great realtor-seriously, I think he showed me close to 50 houses before finding me my dream home, because I am not an easy client! He's involved in our community, coaches sports with the kids, and is an all-around great businessman and neighbor! he showed me the house I live in and wrote an offer even though the property was already in escrow-as he said, "it doesn't hurt to try!" and we ended up getting the house! I can't recommend him highly enough!
To whom it may concern,
After listing, without result, my parent’s property in Yucca Valley with a local realtor; we opted to go with Chad Chambers with the AM Real Estate Group. Even though Chad lives in Long Beach, CA. He went out of his way to hold four open houses for us. Our home sold in less than 90 days. During the escrow, Chad met the inspector and went out of his way to meet work crews at our home. I found his dedication and commitment to customer service refreshing.

I would like to thank you and tell you how nice it as to work with a professional. There were several hurdles to overcome in our transaction and we came together and solved the problems without drama.
I hope that we work together again. All of your clients have been fortunate to have you as their Realtor as well as your future clients with HomeSmart Professionals.
Great working with you,

To Whom It May Concern:
It is my immense pleasure to recommend Alex Montelongo as a real estate broker for any individual or family looking to sell their home.
Alex had an initial meeting with us and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs. He was highly knowledgeable and was able to answer any and all our questions, and he was always attentive to our needs. Furthermore, Alex was able to answer questions pertaining to another property that my family owns in Alabama. Anytime there was a potential buyer or interested party, Alex tenaciously pursued them. He did not waste our time with buyers who posed a risk of withdrawing or rescinding their offer, he pursed serious candidates.
Alex always had a pleasant disposition and was full of positive energy. He was always available and reachable by phone or email: his priority was to facilitate every aspect of the sale process, whether it involved following up or checking in, making regular visits to our property, or liaising between the different agencies involved in the sale. Alex has an eye for detail, and nothing escapes his attention when it comes to the sale of a property.
I found Alex to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if my family was his only customers, although we know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. Alex is also highly personable with an engaging personality. He was honest about some minor changes that we needed to make in our home to attract buyers quickly, and his advice worked like a charm.
I am pleased to recommend Alex Montelongo to anyone looking to sell their home. He is a go-getter, and if my family ever needs to sell a home again, he will be our first choice in real estate brokers.
Paula Whitaker on behalf of the Whitaker Family
I recently worked with Alex for the first time and was very impressed with his professionalism and positive attitude. Having a good agent on the other end of a transaction makes everything easier and Alex did a great job for his buyer, we did a 30 day escrow with no drama. Great working with you Alex!
