Below are comments, left on Zillow.com and Yelp.com, from Brad's clients about their experience working with him.

 

Brad and the whole Gandel Team were amazing throughout the processes of selling my home and finding a new one for my wife and I to purchase. Brad (and his father Alex Gandel) properly priced the house I was selling right from the start and it was in escrow within 45 days of going on the market  and the house went on the market just a few days before Christmas so we could not believe how quickly it actually sold. We attribute the quick sale to Brad, Alex, and their team’s marketing strategies, attention to detail, tireless efforts of open houses and always being available to buyer’s agents. Brad made himself available to be at showings when we were out of town for the holidays so that our dog (who loves Brad now) could be sure to be safe and out of the way during showings for potential buyers. Brad made sure to be present for all of the open houses, to know the property well himself to answer any questions potential buyers had, and was always available to answer any questions I had (at all times of the day or night). In the purchase of my new home, Brad was representing my wife and I (with his father Alex as co-agent) and Alex was actually also the agent for the seller of the home that was purchased. Despite technically being on the other side as his father, I always felt as though Brad was working fairly to represent my wife and I and was not affected in any way by the fact that his father was the agent on the other side of the deal. He represented us with the same vigor and attention he had when acting as my selling agent and he really made sure to let my wife and I know that we were valued and made us feel like family. In fairness, I know our purchase was difficult for Brad because we were buying the home of his father's long-time assistant whom was retiring and moving out of the area and with whom Brad had a personal relationship with having known her most of his life; so, for Brad the sale was even more personal than normal, but even that did not affect his demeanor, representation, or service provided to our family. Truth be told, I tried to sell my house in 2014 and eventually made the decision to take it off the market due to personal reasons. At that time, Brad and Alex were also the co-agents on the listing (back then Brad was just getting started in the industry and was learning the ropes). Despite losing out on the potential commission then after having put in the time, effort, and money to prepare a marketing plan, market the property, and show the property through open houses and otherwise, Brad was steadfast that if taking it off the market was the decision I believed was right, then he would respect that decision and when I was ready he would be more than happy to represent me in the sale again. It was this kindness and humanity that led me to use Brad and his team again when I was ready to sell the house at the end of 2017 and look for a new home for my now expanded family. I cannot say enough good things about Brad Gandel and the whole Gandel Team. They are truly one-of-a-kind, good, honest people who put their clients first and always strive to do the right thing and make sure their client gets the best possible representation. Thank you Brad, Alex, and the rest of the Gandel Team and Family!- San Fernando Valley Seller/Simi Valley Buyer


When my wife and I decided to sell our home, we discussed who we wanted to represent us. We wanted someone that was honest with us and someone that was able to give us quality representation, to be in our corner when it came to negotiations. Brad Gandel was exactly that. We had been residents of
  Simi Valley for over twenty years, seen the markets ups and downs, so when we decided to move We knew what we wanted to list the house for, and actually Brad came through. He directed us, perfectly, he advertised in the best locations and ultimately sold the house in 4 days for what we wanted. WOW! Great job Brad- Simi Valley Seller


Brad helped my husband and I purchase our first house. He was great through every step of the process. When we first started looking at homes, we didn't know what we were doing, but he showed us things that we should be looking out for when buying a home. He showed us over two dozen homes and  never tired when we asked him to show us another. When we finally found the home of our dreams, we were in a multiple offer situation, but Brad gave us advice on how to get our offer accepted and it did. Then while in escrow we ran into some issues with the appraisal, but Brad walked us through our options to make sure we secured the house. At the end, everything worked out perfectly. Throughout the entire process, Brad was always very responsive and kept us informed at every step. Also, since we are new to the area, Brad gave us a lot of recommendations for local services. We couldn't be happier. We highly recommend Brad Gandel for any of your real estate needs- Simi Valley Buyer


Brad was amazing. He was always available and worked around our schedules. He got us answers quick and it was a great experience as first time home buyers- Simi Valley Buyer



My husband and I were moving from Woodland Hills to Ventura county. We worked with Brad and his father Alex to purchase our first home as we heard great things about their knowledge of the Simi Valley, Moorpark, and Camarillo area. We started looking in October 2016 when inventory was very low and
  finally purchased our home in February 2017 in the Moorpark area. My husband and I were really impressed with Brad's communication--he was very responsive with email, text, and phone and always got back to us quickly. Brad went the extra mile for us and didn't seem rushed to push us into any home. He wanted to make sure we were happy with our purchase and was very patient with us as we spent weekend after weekend looking at homes. I would definitely recommend Brad Gandel as a realtor.- Moorpark Buyer


In December of 2016 we met Brad when we saw one of his listings in Simi Valley. He met with us the same day and my son ended up buying the home. Brad represented both the seller and us and did a splendid job of putting the sale together without a hitch. Everyone was happy! Two months ago we put
  our son's previous home up for sale. Brad inspected the home and gave us excellent advice as to what to list the home for. In no time we got a full price offer! We were absolutely thrilled! Yesterday we closed escrow and still can't believe how smoothly each transaction went. Brad was with us every step of the way. We could always reach him by phone and we never had to leave a message and wait for a return call. These two properties were far from million dollar homes so the commissions paid out were not that much for the amount of work/effort Brad put into each transaction. Overall, Brad treated us like we were the most important clients he had ever had. Do we recommend him? He is one of the nicest, kindest and most professional realtors we have ever had the pleasure to work with and whether you're in the market to buy or sell your home, do yourself a favor and give him a call!- Simi Valley Seller


Brad makes the home buying process EASY! The paperwork was a breeze! No jumping through hoops to get the home you want. He guided us through every step of the way, thoroughly answering all of our questions, and helped us close escrow super fast! He is extremely knowledgeable, dependable, and has
  some amazing connections too! I look forward to working with Brad again in the near future. - Simi Valley Buyer


My husband and I are beyond grateful to have had Brad as our realtor. He was always available to answer questions and take us out looking at properties. I was much harder to please than my husband and he was always patient with me. Brad took us to multiple houses when we went out to maximize his
  time and ours and we enjoyed and appreciated that. He was engaged in the process always asking what we liked and didn't like to get a feel for what we were looking for after each property tour. Not only is he very knowledgeable about real estate, he took a personal interest and we enjoyed doing business with him. We will be recommending him to everyone we know. - Simi Valley Buyer


We were first time home buyers and it was through Brad's help that we were able to find our home in a short period of time. We gave him our requirements (like the price range) and he was able to show us a number of properties in several areas we were interested in. He will also look beyond what  you tell him for you to consider. It was one of these cases that we found our home. If he just went strictly with our requirements, we would not have seen the home. Throughout the whole process, Brad has been helpful in providing his honest feedback on the state of the home, the pluses as well as any potential issues. Buying a home is stressful enough but with Brad's help, he was able to alleviate some of the stress. And he provides regular communication on where things are in the process. And ever after the transaction has completed, he is still around if you need any recommendations on contractors and the like. Being new to the area, this helped us a lot and the recommendations have been spot on. His and his dad's knowledge and reputation are really well deserved and we would not hesitate to recommend him as your real estate professional. - Camarillo Buyer


"Beyond expectations"- we could not be happier with Brad as our Agent for buying and selling our home. He was patient and addressed all our questions and concerns during the entire process. He has great knowledge of the houses for sale and those that are comparable to the ones we were buying and  selling. With that said, he got us the max value for our house and cannot reiterate it enough that we could not be happier with the experience, knowledge and relationship built with Brad. - Simi Valley Seller/Buyer


Brad was very helpful throughout the process of buying our first home. He was very helpful and very patient with all of the questions we had. We called him multiple times a week for months and he always gave us guidance and reassurance. - Simi Valley Buyer



We just bought our first house through Brad and it was a great experience. He really knows his stuff and was patient with teaching us the process. Having grown up in Simi and working with his Dad Alex, Brad really has Simi Valley dialed in. You can't beat his first hand knowledge of the schools,
  shopping, and the homes in West, Central, and East Simi Valley. He was very responsive to our needs and had a friendly laid back approach we enjoyed. I highly recommend Brad whether you're a buyer or seller. You will not be disappointed! - Simi Valley Buyer


My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Brad and his team. With his help, we sold our condo and bought a house. He was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He exceeded our expectations in every way, and we are so grateful. We highly recommend him. - Valley Village Seller/Sherman Oaks Buyer

Brad helped me purchase my first home. He was very helpful. Always available on the phone. He carried himself very professionally, honest and personable. Brad and his office staff are the nicest people to work with. I didn't think my first time buying a home would go this smoothly and efficiently. Thank you again Brad! - Simi Valley Buyer

Brad was awesome. We put our house on the market after living there for 17 years. He brought in listings in our area so we could have an idea on what the asking price should be. We had an offer within a week. He was very patient with us and we would call him again in heart beat We've learned some much about the market and process. Brad may be young but he knows his stuff and has a very large office backing him up. He also has many contacts you'll need to know throughout the process such as mortgage, escrow, insurance and home inspectors. - Simi Valley Seller

We've been in our new home for one month now - and we are very much enjoying it! Brad Gandel was our agent, and he was absolutely wonderful. We hit a few bumps and snags along the way with our loan and our HOA, but Mr. Brad Gandel was there for us through every step of the way. His knowledge and professionalism helped us handle the stress and anxiety of being a first-time buyer. From the very start of the process, Brad and his partner, Alex Gandel, educated us step by step on the buying process. We feel very fortunate and grateful to have gotten the opportunity to work with such a reliable and dedicated team. We recommend Brad Gandel whole heartily - he will find you, and get you, the home of your dreams! - Simi Valley Buyer

My fiance and I we're on the market looking for our first home in the Simi Valley area. We were introduced to Brad Gandel after finding a listing on Zillow.com. We gave Brad very little to work with in terms of budget and location. I have to admit his attitude immediately put our minds at ease - we knew picked the right guy! Brad was easily reachable via text, phone and email, as well personal visits. We selected Brad based upon his knowledge, professionalism and personal approach. Not once during the entire process I second guessed him. Brad is very resourceful, he was able to find a great amount of listings in the area that suited our needs; at the same time staying within our small budget. Long story short, it didn't take long for my fiance and I to fall in love the home we can now call our own.

We have recommended Brad to friends and family, and will definitely work with him again! - Simi Valley Buyer
