Alex Gandel, Top Producing Real Estate Agent 1996-2017-C21 Troop Real Estate, #10 Agent Nationwide 2017-Century 21 Real Estate, and Business Person of the Year 2017 with the Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce is celebrating 38 years in Real Estate. Of those 38 years, Alex has been with C21 Troop Real Estate for 23 years and has consistently earned the most prestigious awards for his top production and professional excellence. As a seasoned veteran, Alex has represented clientele in a vast array of price ranges and transactions. He attributes his success to his positive “glass half full” approach to his business and personal life which enables him to continue to help a multitude of people throughout all of Ventura County and the San Fernando Valley, from First Time Home Buyers and Sellers to Estate Level Buyers and Sellers.
In April of 2016 Troop Real Estate took a giant leap forward and partnered with CENTURY 21® LLC with great expectations to continue what they have been accomplishing for years: delivering a remarkable customer experience and creating an affinity and trust with our clients. Alex Gandel is excited to offer a wide array of consumer-centric products, services, and technology merged with his 360 Degree High Impact Marketing Plan.
Following in his Father's footsteps, Alex’s son, Brad Gandel, joined C21 Troop Real Estate as a Realtor in 2013. Alex considers himself very fortunate to have an array of highly talented staff. Jennifer Aragon, Alex’s Transaction Coordinator, is an insightful and informative communicator. Coming highly recommended and experienced, she joined Alex's staff in 2017 and helps Alex expertly guide his clients through the sometimes challenging escrow and closing process. Cheryl Clayton has been with Alex since 2011 and oversees all of Alex's marketing. She is a passionate centric force to the driving energy behind Alex’s proven and successful High Impact 360 Degree Marketing Plan. Both Jennifer and Cheryl are fully licensed, insured, and experienced agents who have been in Real Estate for over 20 years. Stella Lopez works as Alex's office clerical assistant and helps Alex, Cheryl and Jennifer in many ways. Alex calls his staff “magical.” Together, with Alex’s keen insight and guidance, they work with a mindset to continually “raise the bar” in service, communication, follow-through, creativity, perseverance, and excellence.
Alex Gandel and Staff are a combination of the best of both worlds: Working with a signature Real Estate Company in Ventura County, Pinnacle Estate Properties, Inc., as well as offering a “Boutique-Style” personal concierge service to their clients. Their clients never feel like another statistic or number. Alex Gandel and Staff are highly skilled, friendly, experienced and successful in working with standard Real Estate transactions as well as a variety of challenging circumstances, such as divorce, short sale hardship, contingent sellers with a home of choice, relocation clients and investors. By virtue of Alex’s stellar professional reputation, he also receives many referrals from Realtors out of the area. The experience and camaraderie of Alex Gandel and Staff go beyond the ordinary! Often, their keen insight, experience, and knowledge will guide them to proactively address details before they become a problem. This type of service is invaluable to Alex’s clients!
In addition to being a Top Producing Real Estate Agent and esteemed business professional, Alex is a devoted family man, married to his wife, Janet for 29 years, and serves his community in a couple of different capacities such as volunteering on the Advisory Board of the Simi Valley Boys and Girls Club as well as the Adventist Health Simi ValleyFoundation Board.
