Sold a Cooperative home in 2018 in Long Beach, NY.
Alex was the best real estate agent I’ve ever had. He was very innovative and creative in his approach to find the ideal buyer of my place. He put a lot of emphasis on the new school approach of social media and the internet to find the right buyer. I would recommend Alex highly.

Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Long Beach, NY.
Review for Member: Matthew Hazan
I had my house listed with another realtor for 6 months. they did a lot of open houses....nothing. I gave listing to Matt & within a month he had it sold. I wasn't living in house. He spruced it up with flowers & power washed it. He knows Long Beach extremely well. He knows how much things are selling for. He was patient with me when I had a lot of questions. He always communicated with me in a timely manner. He goes the extra mile to get the job done. He is professional. Has excellent follow thru skills. Needless to say I was extremely happy with him.

Alex did an amazing job of selling our house. After the first deal fell through he quickly found us another buyer. His photographer did an excellent job of capturing the finer features of our home. He’s got a keen skill on zeroing in on finding the right people for the right house. I would certainly recommend his services.


Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Long Beach, NY.
Review for Member: Matthew Hazan
Matt is absolutely the best. He originally helped me to get my house rented 7 years ago and the tenant stayed until last year. Due to my move to San Francisco, put my house on the market and Matt went above and beyond to find a buyer. Matt did everything from arranging for repairs, checking up on the property, and doing everything he can to get the deal done. Matt is like part of the family and the proof is that he is working on another closing for my sister at the moment. Would recommend him 1000% and you will be hard pressed to find someone more focused on your best interests than Matt.

Review for Member: Matthew Hazan
My experience with Matthew Hazan was excellent from our initial meeting to the closing. He described how the process would work every step of the way. He was knowledgeable about the neighborhood, provided accurate perspective on the price point and made the process very simple. As I told him myself directly, he did everything he said he would. To me, that is the mark of a true professional.

Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Long Beach, NY.
Review for Member: Matthew Hazan
I first worked with Matt in 2012 as my agent when purchasing my first co-op in Long Beach. He is very responsive, and gives you his honest opinion and after speaking with him for a bit, he came up with his own ideas of places to show me, which I ultimately purchased. What I came to realize, especially after having lived there a while, was that he really knows Long Beach and the personalities of certain buildings. Because of this, I had no hesitation when it came time to sell to call Matt to represent me once more. As a seller's agent, he is equally skilled for all the reasons mentioned above. On top of that, Matt was dedicated to selling my property, even being a rather modestly priced. He made himself as available as possible to show the unit and how to effectively list it. Everything went exactly according to plan both times and I highly recommend him.


Sold a Condo home in 2017 in Long Beach, NY.
It used to take 2 years to sell an apartment in The Broadway... Thanks to Alex professional help and advice it only took 2 months (from listing date to closing date). Alex is very knowledgeable, extremely prompt to answer seller's questions and will call you immediately to clarify a statement / question from the buyer if needed. His team did an outstanding job with marketing the place: pictures, video visit, flyers, open houses and of course Internet / Social Media visibility. He is also extremely patient: it took me 6 months to decide to list it! Alex never pushed me to list it during that time. Oh, I'd just forgot to mention that the place stayed 3 weeks (!) on the market! It's not that it under-sold or was under-listed. It was listed to what Alex and I agreed, was fair market value and set a selling price record in mirrored apartments with comparable updates in the building. I would gladly work again with Alex at any moment; however I don't have any other place to sell in Long Beach!


Helped me rent a Single Family home in Long Beach, NY.
Alex was nothing but a pleasure to work with. Talk about knowledgeable about Long Beach and the surrounding areas. I felt that he took the extra mile every chance he could to make my moving process run seamlessly. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone who wants a realtor who will take care of them and be a long term resource.


Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Freeport, NY.
Excellent to work with, highly motivated and very competent. Alex sold a property for me in 3 months that no one else could sell in 3 years. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell a property.


Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2015 in Farmingdale, NY.
There are not many people I would ever give a 5 star rating across the board.But Alex Rubin is a very special kind of agent.He prides himself on paying attention to detail and keeps his clients up to date every day.He cares about making sure is sellers get top dollar and that his buyers get what they are looking for at a fair price.He also works with his clients on the financing end as well and is there way after the sale is closed!!!!! Alex Rubin is the real deal!!!!!! I had listed my home with Alex and he did a good job in representing me as the sellers.


Bought a home in 2016 in Old Bethpage, NY 11804.
Alex Rubin is an expert and true professional in his field. He is a nice person, honest, and gets the job done. I recommend Alex to anyone looking to list their house or purchase a house. Alex was my first point of contact for the house I just purchased. He was friendly and put me in touch with the exact people needed to make everything happen.


Showed home in 2014 in Point Lookout, NY 11569.
Great local knowledge and straight talk. Very refreshing. Very impressed. He was responsive, on time, always returned calls and even though we didn't buy at that time we are staying in touch


Showed home in 2016 in Long Beach, NY.
Alex is a true professional with every aspect of the modern day real estate markets. He knows values and is a great negotiator. I highly recommend Alex and his team at Douglas Elliman Real Estate. I was using Alex as my agent when looking for an income property.


Showed home in 2015 in Rockville Centre, NY 11570.
Alex is a fantastic agent with a wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend him! He took my wife and I all around the south shore of Long Island looking for our dream home. He listened to us and helped us every step of the way until we finally closed and settled in. Thank you Alex!


Helped me rent a home in Lido Beach, Long Beach, NY 11561.
Working with Alex has made the strenuous ordeal of searching for home smooth and easy. He is extremely knowledgeable of the market and incredibly helpful. I would want all my friends, family and anyone I know to buy and sell their properties through him. it has been a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to future deals.


Helped me rent a Multiple Occupancy home in Long Beach, NY.
Alex was very helpful. I explained to Alex that I have less than one month to move. The first week Alex showed me several apartments that did not meet my wants or needs. The following week he showed me a few more when I found the one that I really liked. Alex made the deal and in less than one month I was all moved in. Thank you Alex Rubin for all of your hard work and patience. I know I was not an easy client but I am a happy tenant.


Alex spent almost two years helping us find just the right house in Long Beach. During this period he also helped us find a home to rent. Once we found the home to purchase he was very helpful in getting contract signed. Since we went into contract prior to Sandy when Sandy hit we had to renegotiate the price and Alex did a great job. He has a great team to work with as well. We would definitely recommend him & his team and will use him in the future when we go to downsize.


Alex did a tremendous job selling our home. This is not the first house we ever sold and have used multiple agents, but Alex was by far the most thorough of them all. He did extensive background work concerning all of the same types of houses in the neighborhood . This gave a us a great understanding to what our property was REALLY worth.. He was always in touch with us and kept us in the loop during the whole process.. I would definitely recommend him if anyone wants to sell their home.


Alex is very good at what he does. He is very knowledgeable and honest. Will do everything he can to get you what you want and need. He really is the best!!


Professional and easy to deal with. Deadlines always met and gives straightforward responses. Alex is my go to guy for all real estate questions and needs.


Alex facilitated the selling of our home and purchase of an apartment with knowledge, expertise and professionalism. He went above and beyond to walk us through the process, advertise our home using multi media and resolved issues skillfully and strategically. I would happily recommend Alex to friends, family and perspective clients.


One could not ask for a nicer, more knowledgeable real estate agent than Alex Rubin. He was very helpful in moving the transaction along. Every call and text was answered by him. I imagine he is the best realtor in Long Beach due to his expertise and pleasant manner. I am so glad he was the realtor in my transaction.


Alex Rubin is a true professional. Despite the current market, and the conditions of homes after Super Storm Sandy, especially in Long Beach and Island Park, he was able perform a miracle and sell the home, purchased by my parents, way back in the 1950's. Despite many homes for sale and in foreclosure in the immediate area, Alex was not deterred. Approximately 4 months after our initial contact with Alex, he was able to assess the house and property, present it online with photographs, market it and finally sell it. We had the closing in July of 2014 and Alex was present to make sure all the "T's" were crossed and the "i's" dotted. He knows every nuance of the market of the South Shore of Long Island, and every detail of the buying and selling process. Buying and selling Real Estate is a complicated process for us "civilians", but Alex makes it look easy. Together with his Team, he made selling our house, from long distance (I live in Connecticut) an easy and stressless process. I would and will recommend Alex (and his Team) to anyone that is interested in buying and/or selling Real Estate.


We called Alex on a whim, and immediately knew after the first phone call that we wanted to work with him as our buyer agent. He is extremely down to earth and easy to get along with. He took into account all of our needs and wants and only showed us homes which fit the mold. He always gave us his honest opinions and never tried to hard sell us. When we're ready to sell and buy our next home, Alex will be our first call.

Alex's process is about listening to his clients needs and goals and makes recommendations based on what he learns is important to his customers.

In my case he understood my goals and also leveraged his local knowledge of the market to price my sale in a fair but moveable number. He worked professionally the entire way and was able to secure a buyer in just 2 weeks. He managed the entire process smoothly and was easy to reach and communicate with.

Thanks Alex!


My wife and I had Alex show us several homes in the area. Great follow through, easy to work with, professional service. We ended up buying one of the homes shown. We would use Alex again to purchase or sell a home.


Alex was extremely professional in every facet of the transaction. He went above and beyond in helping us with the process. As a real estate attorney, I worked with hundreds of Realtors over the years and feel that Alex is at the top of his profession. If we ever had another transaction, we would most certainly contact Alex.

Dear Alex,

Its been a long and very interesting road to reach this point, and I would've been lost without you. I thank you for your knowledge, guidance and professionalism. I wish you continued success.

Here is what LbMarc wrote on Zillow.com:How likely are you to recommend Alex Rubin?highly likely

Summary of their experienceHighly recommended! Very professional, knowledgeable. thorough, informative, patient, excellent local knowledge, very personable and always a smile on his face. Promptly returned calls, texts, emails. On-time for appointments.

I had a bumpy ride selling my Long Beach townhouse - as a few days before my scheduled closing; a little storm called Sandy blew thru - voiding my home sale (scheduled to close the following week).

Alex got right back on the horse, restarted the entire sales process from scratch, and found a new buyer within a few short months

A few more high points... . - Many agents are part-timers. Even many full-time agents are unavailable 30-40% of the time. - and it does matter. Alex is a dedicated FULL-TIME agent and then some - generally available seven days a week; 10-12 hours a day. This can greatly compress and expedite the whole sales process; keep active prospects from wandering away, etc. Why hire a part-timer - when you can get full-time ++ service for the same nickel?

Plays well with others. This may sound like a stupid point, but a single home sale involves dozens of people and hundreds of interactions with brokers, agents, prospects, inspectors, lawyers, title-closers, etc. A lot of moving parts, many potential points of friction, many personal quirks, in a sales process that is often adversarial. Alex smoothly negotiated and navigated through the playing field - getting everyone to the table without ruffling any feathers.

Definitely recommend.

In my first experience being "the Seller", Mr. Rubin was a tremendous help in educating me on the real estate market and its fluctuations, was honest with his opinions and suggestions, and I felt quite comfortable in leaving my entire real estate transaction in his very capable hands. He possesses a great depth of knowledge in his field, is professional and kept me informed of every detail along the way from listing with him right through to the closing.

It was a great pleasure to work with such a fine professional, and I would highly recommend Alex Rubin to anyone looking to list or buy property.

Many thanks to you, Alex!


Alex spent approximately 2 years helping us look for a home in Long Beach. He understood what we were looking for and diligently helped us pursue finding the right home. His knowledge of Long Beach was very helpful since we were new to the area.

Once we found the home to purchase, Alex was very helpful during what became a very difficult house purchase in Long Beach. He was always available to us. When Hurricane Sandy hit we were in Europe and had concerns with the condition of the home we were in contract on. Alex spoke with us within a few days and upon our return worked agressively to get us in to see the house. His advice at the time proved helpful. Since purchasing the home we have been in the need for many trades people and Alex has come to the rescue every time with efficient, knowledgeable and more importantly people who show us. If looking for a home call Alex.

We wanted to sell our home and told alex we wanted to wait until after the holidays to put it on the market. He said don't wait and put it on now, which happened to be October. He sold it within 10 days. He did a great job. He knows how to price your home correctly, so it will sell quickly.

The Gallows


After interviewing several agents with the goal of listing my home on the market, it was Alex's persistence and "can-do" attitude which eventually won me over. From there I credit his extensive industry knowledge and cutting edge marketing strategy for ultimately selling my home. Given the state of the economy, I was thrilled when after only two days on the market I had an offer on my property, and shortly thereafter, a second which led to its sale. The entire process of selling my home was made simple by Alex's industry expertise, candor and overall guidance. I highly recommend Alex Rubin to represent anyone seriously considering the sale or purchase of a home.

We just wanted to extend our appreciation to you for helping us find our first apartment. We absolutely love the place and we are having such a great time already. Shannon & Christina


Alex was extremely helpful throughout the entire experience. His knowledge of the area was very impressive. I would definitely recommend this agent!Gina L


Our experience with Alex Rubin was excellent. Alex is a local resident. He knows the area exceptionally well, and is easy to talk to. He gets a read on what you are looking for, and shuttles you in that direction. He is honest, straightforward, and no-nonsense. He has answered inumerable questions for us on the process, the home types, expectations, and illustrates his advice using previous cases. He clearly feels a vested interest in attracting nice people to the area. We are delighted with our home, and with our neighborhood. I would recommend him highly, and without hesitation or qualification.


I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Alex for helping me find a wonderful apartment in Long Beach. He listened carefully to my specifications and each place I saw met all the standards we had discussed. Alex worked hard for me and never wasted my time. Our search was short and sweet and I thank him for helping me find my new home in Long Beach.

Dear Alex,

I wanted to take this opportunity to write to tell you what a fantastic job you did in helping my daughter, Alicia, find a co-op in Long Beach.

Your knowledge of the area was phenomenal. I appreciate the time you took to prepare listings so that when she came down form Boston a lot would be accomplished in a day. You made her feel comfortable, never pushed, while making a decision.

Alicia was very lucky to find a home that she loves and can afford, thanks to you.
Best Wishes,

Pat K

Dear Alex,

A Belated thanks for your help in purchasing our condo at 235 W Broadway in Castle Court. We are very happy with the unit and without your research and extensive knowledge of Long Beach real estate, we would still be searching. You answered our questions promptly and honestly. We will recommend you without reservation to anyone who is looking to purchase in the area.

With that said, are there any units for sale in Castle Court? Please send us any pertinent information. We know someone who has made some inquiries, not serious yet, but curious.
Sincerely,

Barbara and Jerry C.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for helping me find my new apartment. I have wanted to live in Long Beach for over 10 years and now I am finally realizing my dream. I had spent almost 6 weeks trying to find an apartment on my own and with several agents with no results. The service I received from other agencies was poor at best and I was treated as if my business was insignificant. When I called you, you were extremely helpful and responsive, and within a few days, you showed me 8 great apartments to choose from! What I appreciated most was that you listened carefully to what I was looking for and led me in that direction. You were incredibly patient and understanding and in one day, helped me find my new place. You understood that an apartment is not just an apartment, but also a home. You also used your expert negotiating skills to get me the apartment I was looking for at the rent I could afford. Alex, thank you for helping me find my new home across the street from the beach - a dream come true! I will highly recommend you to anyone looking for his or her new home.

Thanks so much!

With great appreciation,

Amy K

I just wanted to take the time to write to you to thank you for all your help. I started my search online and explored the usual open houses in Long Beach. When I visited one of your open houses, you immediately took an interest in what I wanted in a new home. You asked a lot of probing questions about what my needs were and immediately realized that the unit was not for me.

Over the next few weeks you were very patient and we found the perfect apartment in the building that I felt most comfortable. Although the negotiations and the board approval was a bumpy road, you always acted professionally and level headed.

Thanks again for finding me the right co-op at the right price in a community that I always dreamed of living in. Please feel free to use me as a reference in the future and I hope that we remain in touch.

Sincerely,

Richard S

I meet Alex Rubin in October of 2008. He was the agent I meet as I started my search for a condo in Long Beach. From the first moment he was very helpful and patient in my search. He was able to show me an apartment that fit my needs and never wasted my time showing places that would not fit me. He was there through all steps of the closing process and worked with me on all aspects of placing a bid on my current condo. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends moving into Long Beach or the areas around it that he covers.

I thought being a first time homebuyer would be intimidating and overwhelming but I don’t think my purchase could have gone any simpler and smoother. You were cognizant of my concerns and responded to all my questions immediately. It is evident that the scope of knowledge you have about real estate and people is immense. You are truly a class act!
