The past year has been so challenging, I honestly I am so grateful we did the journey with you as our realtor, I can't imagine how we would have gotten through without you! Having been a realtor myself, I know you went way above and beyond to get our house sold and I am so very grateful. Meeting utility and service people, inspectors and meeting folks who wanted a peak at our place was great. Meeting movers for estimates was incredibly helpful. But way more than that, the coordination of contractors, you virtually served as a project manager for me since I and my special daughter were in another location and really just could not do these things. With the first sale the repair work was extensive, contractors, building permits, even an architect you helped me find, and although the first sale fell apart, the final sale was beyond what I hoped for with strong buyers, a fairly fast close and a higher bottom line, even after the repairs had been done. I know this is not your job, but I want also to thank you for the emotional support as the stressors in my life were extreme and there were days when I wondered how I would get through, my faith in God and a kind listening ear, helpful suggestions from you made it feel like we were a team and with your skill professionalism and support we have moved from our beautiful home in Carmel Valley to our Beautiful Home in Texas. My Gratitude is Beyond measure! You are my super hero and I will remember this very difficult year was blessed with you in it helping us accomplish our goal and shifting into a new lifestyle that serves us so much better!

We are contacting you, as owner/broker of Alain Pinel Realtors, to inform you how pleased we are with the services Alexandra Mouzas provided to us during the recent sale of our home at 701 17 Mile Drive in Pacific Grove. We met Alexandra at an open house in Pacific Grove and were impressed with her professionalism, knowledge of the house, history, and features, and welcomed sense of honesty and humor. Her willingness to spend quality time at the open house with us was a welcome change from the detached agents we have met at many other open houses. We have met several other brokers in the Monterey Peninsula area over the years but contacted just Alexandra when we decided to put our Pacific Grove home on the market in mid-October. We knew we picked the right realtor after our initial meeting to discuss the possible sale when she immediately guided us through getting the home and landscaping ready for the listing and sale. She also much impressed us when she literally rolled up her sleeves to move furniture to creatively stage it. She continued to impress us through the required inspections, paperwork, and the rather stressful sale closing on December 2nd. Alexandra is very hands-on, knowledgeable about local requirements, available resources, and willingly accessible and communicative via phone calls, text, and emails. She deftly worked with legal, escrow and title officers, buyer broker, City of Pacific Grove, and Monterey County officials. All in all, we regard Alexandra as extremely detailed, diligent, and above all – very personable. We value how she assisted us with our sale. She was so much a part of the experience that having now sold the house, life seems much quieter without her to guide us! Accordingly; we are happy to recommend Alexandra Mouzas to other potential buyers/sellers in the Monterey Peninsula area.

To whom it may concern: I am writing to let you know how happy, my wife Mary and I, were to work with one of your agents. We recently had an interest in moving to a larger home and contacted Ms. Mouzas who immediately set an appointment to show us the property we were interested in. Ms. Mouzas also went on to show us several other homes in the area she thought we might like. Afterwards we met and she explained to us in detail the process that would be involved to sell and prepare for a local move should we find a property that suited our needs. Alexandra advised that she would prepare a Market Analysis of our home and update a potential list of additional properties to view in the area we were interested in. We set a meeting for the following week. Alexandra met with us again and presented us with a detailed market analysis in a binder that included a wealth of information. We were blown away with the information and level of detail that went in to this professional document. It answered all of our questions and contained data we would never even think of asking. My purpose in writing is to commend and thank Ms. Mouzas for the highly professional manner in which she conducted herself. We felt in good hands throughout the process. Her knowledge, positive encouraging attitude, and impressive skills made us feel comfortable and excited to work with her. Alain Pinel Realtors must be proud to have such a fine representative on staff. Thank you Alexandra for a job well done.

"We told Alexandra that we were interested in purchasing a condo that fit both our family needs, and which we could rent for income--she found the perfect property! Her 28 years experience guided us thru the long distance purchase. Settled now into our condo on the beach, we've enjoyed cozy weekends, walks along the beach, and transacted our first vacation rental! We encourage all of our Central Valley family and friends to trust their real estate needs to Alexandra."

Before I tell you about Alexandra, I think that you should know that I had the house listed with another local real estate firm for over a year, without having a single offer. Truth be told, I had almost given up selling the house. Alexandra was one of several real estate agents that I interviewed for the listing. When I interviewed her, she presented what I though was the best, well though-out marketing plan, with a realistic, fact-based valuation of the property. I also thought that it was very innovative the way she used sociall media such as Facebook, to showcase listings and open houses.While my house always showed well, Alexandra suggested numerous changes to improve the way it showed. She took it upon herself to rearrange furniture, move paintings on the walls, eliminate clutter, etc.. Alexandra suggested that I change the large guest bedroom into a bonus/game room. To confess, I was skeptical that these changes would have much effect on the sale of the house, but I felt that I had nothing to lose and I knew that Alexandra had a keen eye for such things. She also capitalized on Concours d' Elegance Week with advertising that showcased the large garage and private driveway of my home, not to mention my red Corvette.Alexandra made it clear to me that she liked holding open houses. Again, I was somewhat skeptical of the value that open houses actually create but she was the expert, so I agreed and she held open houses just about every weekend prior to getting the right offer in September. Interestingly, the house was sold to a couple who attended one of Alexandra's open houses. Another interesting note, the wife of the couple who purchased the house told me during the walk-through that the bonus/game room that Alexandra created was what sold them on the house, as they have two children. Just to conclude, I wanted you to know what I am sure you already know, that is you have a top notch professional agent working for you. I understand that she was recently recognized as a to producer. I would predict that she will earn that title many times more in the future. Should I be in the market for another home on the Monterey Peninsula, I won't hesitate for a moment asking for Alexandra's help.

Just a note to let you know how blessed your company is to have a wonderful person like Alexandra Mouzas on your team. My experience with Alex was outstanding. She helped me, guided me through details, and was always there when a house came available. No matter where it was, Alexandra was there and did her homework with all the details of the house. My heart warms when I speak of her and want you to know my experience was outstanding.

Alexandra was very careful in keeping us involved in the entire process. When problems arose she calmly offered my wife and I several options for resolution. She helped us to work through every step of the process. We are currently in the process of buying our third home through Alexandra; the second home of ours that she sold was an extremely complicated short sale with three separate sellers on title. Her veteran agent status steered us through the mounds of paperwork. Great realtor!!!

Our family has been using Alexandra as our realtor for many years. She is thorough, efficient and a pleasure to work with. I recently bought an investment property and Alexandra's insight with the numbers was very helpful in my arriving at my decision. Another transaction, we bought a property for my elderly mother who is not an easy client. Alexandra showed her numerous properties over the course of a couple years until she finally decided on the one. Alexandra was kind, patient, and very understanding with my mother. Our family highly recommends her as a Real Estate Agent in representing both buyers and sellers.

How can I express my deep appreciation for all that you did to sell our house? The house had been on the market (with another agent) for six months without a nibble. After discussing my frustrations with my family I asked Alexandra for advice and help. Within seven days of re-listing the property with Alexandra, we received three offers and the house was sold. I sell remember my brother's statement the day we left your office, this is the best move we've ever made. I know when I'm ready to purchase a house Alexandra will be the first person I call. Thank you once again, and to anyone looking to sell their property, look no further the best agent in town is right before you!

Alexandra Mouzas has given my wife and me excellent real estate service. It is our personal pleasure to have her as our agent. We have had experience with several other realtors, but Alexandra, in many ways has stood out as the most suitable for our family. I think one Alexandra's assets are that she listens to what we say and to what we feel. Also she has been able to organize our various desires into homes which we have viewed. I think her most appealing trait is her patience. I personally have vacillated over what is important to me concerning what I want in a home. Alexandra has remained patient while listening and giving suggestions. Alexandra is both professional and personal with a warm and pleasing personality. It would be our pleasure to recommend her!

I would like to commend you on your professionalism and the prompt and courteous service that you provided me in regards to the sale of my condominium in University Heights. As my listing agent the results you achieved speak for themselves My condominium was sold three days after you listed it and escrow closed in thirty days! I will highly recommend you to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home or condominium.
As a real estate broker, having had five offices dealing in most operations of real estate sales, I am highly sensitive to the sales expertise of a good sales person. Likewise, I am familiar with the executive real estate relocation program and placement programs of Premier Relocation Services, and the attributes you seek in your associate personnel. It is my opinion that Ms. Mouzas possesses those special qualities of dedicated professionalism, initiative, insight, personality, social manners, dress, diligence, drive, personal integrity, loyalty, and discretion that would add to the dimension of your company. Further, I have known her broker, for over 20 years, he would go out of his way to make Ms. Mouzas association with you a mutual success.My confidence in Ms. Mouzas is self evident in that I have given her and her associate eight of my personal properties for sale on a year listing period, one of which has already been sold and closed escrow.
