I had the pleasure of engaging Alex Schauffert, Broker/Realtor® of New Standard Realty, in Benicia, California, to sell the rental home that I had owned for many years in Benicia, in March of 2010. I would give him my highest possible recommendation to anyone!
My rental home was on the market for only about 2-3 weeks, and was, in my opinion, after my viewing many competing homes, priced quite accurately by Alex. But, after the exceptional work that Alex did in preparing and showing my home, it sold for $24,000 more than my asking price!
Alex included several extra services for free as part of his regular commission, for which I understand most realtors/brokers, charge extra. These included yard and home maintenance while listed, etc., but most significantly, included the staging of the entire home, which was done in a very professional and magnificent manner.
After having been a rental for many years, this home needed cleaning, some repairs, some upgrades, landscaping improvements, and a significant amount of painting, etc. Alex completely handled all of these needed items, was intricately involved himself personally with all of them, and hired several professionals known well by him, to do the more major work. All of these people were hired by Alex, with no time or effort, at all, on my part! And all of this work was done in a very timely manner. Again, everyone did a superb job, making the former rental look like a rather fancy maintained residence, and I am sure, resulting in the extra amount I received for the sale of this home!
In addition, Alex has a full time secretary/office manager, who was always available for any and all assistance, and extremely friendly and engaging; as is Alex also.
Should anyone need any further information from me, I would be happy to provide it.
Alex was tireless in his efforts to help me get the perfect home at an unbelievable price! Great views, great house, great price. I wouldn’t have believed it. I refer him to all my friends.
You were very helpful and patient with us. You make things happen even when others give up.
If you’re seeking representation of the highest caliber and character, Alex is your man.
As we embarked on the biggest investment we will ever make, we were overwhelmed by the choice of neighborhoods, home styles and loan options available to home buyers in The Bay Area. Alex was just what the doctor ordered, he clarified the home buying process, providing guidance and answering our questions every step of the way.
First Alex helped us identify and prioritize what we were looking for in our first home. Next, he helped us understand our financing options. Then, with our requirements set, Alex helped us find our dream home, a great investment in the perfect area for our family. Alex ensured we bought at the right price, helping us with negotiations, the closing process and with our move.
Thanks Alex for helping our family live the American Dream!!
Alex helped us execute our personal investment strategy to create great cash flow and a huge future upside. He has keen awareness of the local market and can help you pick a winner. These opportunities come around once in a lifetime.
I would gladly recommend Alex Schauffert to anyone who needs the services of a realtor; he will exceed your expectations!
I am a very picky buyer. I’ve had Alex show me dozens of homes and I’m still looking. He is very patient and generous with his time.” Listen to his advice. You’ll hear it on the news months later.
Very knowledgeable, top of his game!
With great pleasure I am setting out my experience working with you over the past several years on real estate property deals.
Firstly, there were several single-family homes in Vallejo which were purchased, improved, marketed and sold. Also, a multi-unit apartment complex likewise was purchased and improvements were made. Currently a sale is pending. Several condos have been purchased in Benicia; one has been sold and the other one is still successfully being rented. Office and retail complexes were purchased in Benicia and Sacramento and are doing well. Your insight as to what to buy and how much to offer on the way in as well as how to sell and how much to ask for on the way out is well above par, most helpful and added significantly to the profitability of these transactions.
I retained Alex at New Standard Realty to sell my Benicia home. In all aspects of the transaction, he met or exceeded my expectations. The end result was a quick sale at over asking price with little of the drama that can accompany a home sale.
He was thorough in assessing the market and identifying comparable properties to set an appropriate asking price. This was key in generating buyer interest and bringing prospects to view the home.
He did an exceptional job staging the property for maximum appeal, both inside and out. He even augmented the landscaping at his own cost to increase the curb appeal of the house. I'm certain this enhanced the desirability of the home, contributing to multiple offers, all over our asking price.
Once under contract, he made himself available on multiple occasions to open the home for inspections and appraisals.
From start to finish, he handled the transaction in a professional and expeditious manner.
Alex Schauffert is a professional; he knows the real estate market inside out, upside down and back to front, if he says your house will sell in X number of days for X number of $$$ IT WILL, ours did, listen to him do as he recommends, then sit back, take possession or collect the check. It was the most hassle-free fastest sale we have ever experienced; he delivers on all his promises. His team of assistants and his office staff are the best.
We are very satisfied first-time but not last-time clients.
He helped me with every small detail. Very knowledgeable, aggressive, honorable man.
Alex and his staff are wonderful; they answered all our questions, and helped our 1031 exchange go smoothly. We wouldn’t use anyone else. Alex has great insight in the realty market. Buying or selling with Alex is headache-free and he is the only Realtor for us.
Alex helped us buy this home for 25% of its previous value. I soon rented it for $1,475 a month. His helpfulness, insight and integrity are great.
