Alex Gandel, #1 Agent Companywide 2011-2015 with Troop Real Estate, based in Simi Valley, California, is celebrating 36 years in Real Estate. Of those 36 years, Alex has been with Troop Real Estate for 21 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 “glass half full” approach in 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 2012 Alex’s son, Brad Gandel, joined forces with Alex, working as a fellow Realtor. Brad states he is “learning from the best!” Welles Miller, Alex’s Transaction Coordinator, has been with him since 2002 and is an insightful and informative catalyst who helps Alex expertly guide his clients through the sometimes challenging escrow and closing process. Cheryl Clayton has been with Alex since 2011 and works as his Marketing Director and Buyer’s Agent and is a passionate centric force to the driving energy behind Alex’s proven and successful High Impact 360 Degree Marketing Plan. Both Welles and Cheryl are fully licensed, insured, experienced agents who have been actively working in Real Estate for over 20 years. Alex calls this group “magical.” Together, with Alex’s keen insight and guidance, this magical team works 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 the largest independent Real Estate Company in Ventura County, Troop Real Estate, 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.

The experience and camaraderie of Alex Gandel and Staff goes beyond the ordinary!
