My wife and I were looking for a condo in the Fort Lauderdale area of Florida.I came across Zip realty and Al during the search. After checking many listings I contacted Al and a professional relationship started and grew whereby I felt he treated us like family. He took my wife and a cousin around looking at properties for two weeks while I was still back home in N.J. tending to personal business. A couple of weeks later I too was in Florida looking at properties with Al. We eventually settled on a condo and purchased it on 8/16/16 and couldn't be happier.
Now, about Al the person. Many aspects about this purchase were extremely challenging. Without Al we would not have purchased this unit.Al guided us every step of the way from setting appointments,attending a condo review board interview with us and finally attending the closing.
Al spent much of his time during this process interacting with us in many ways.His professionalism,attention to detail after detail,untirelingly effort on our behalf were incredible. Al worked 7 days a week for us and spent many a late night emailing and texting making sure everything was done and that we were up to date with all the little details that needed to be settled before our deal was completed.Eventually our conversations turned personal.We exchanged family information and I felt like I had met a long lost relative. At one point I told him his wife must be an angel and a very special lady to accept his work ethics and all the time he spent away from her. He agreed and said she was a very understanding person who understood his modus operandi and accepted it without reservation.
In closing my wife and I feel very blessed to have met Al and have him represent our interests.In our opinion no other realtor would have done for us everything Al did and all this for a commission split with the listing broker on a deal barely over 100K.
We are both going to miss him.
