LEXINGTON REAL ESTATE GROUP LLC

(38)

Over the past 13 years, Alexandru Galiceanu has worked primarily in residential leasing, completing over 2,500 transactions, and establishing a proven track record for consistently being among the top 5% of agents in the field.  In 2014, Alexandru formed The Galiceanu Group with one central idea in mind, “there is a better way to do business, with an essential focus on elevating the customer experience, that’s not consistently being met in our industry.” Alexandru’s extensive relationship with the multifamily sector in Manhattan, allowed him to showcase that principle to landlords and property managers that their properties were also not being showcased and marketed properly in the brokerage industry.

This has lead the Galiceanu Group to engage in several exclusive new development marketing opportunities. Alexandru’s passion, and disarming personality has also allowed him to pave the way to establish many corporate relocation relationships with several private wealth management, finance, technology, healthcare and law firms in NY.  Alexandru has also successfully established a reputation as a real estate advisor, helping both end users, and investors looking for either their first home or a positive income revenue stream.

Alexandru’s goal in every transaction is for one central idea to be understood: the client relationship is the most important, intrinsic part of the transaction. He approaches each deal creatively, working to understand the client's individual goals, and then cultivates a plan reflecting the most effective and efficient path where each can attain those goals in the transaction.  

Anyone who has worked with Alexandru can acknowledge he is the consummate professional and a pleasure to engage with in the creative process. Alexandru is inspired about the process of building, improving, and creating community. He hopes one day to realize his dreams of becoming a real estate developer and taking the opportunity to add to the unique and breathtaking NYC landscape. “I love Real Estate! I’ve been influenced by New York City’s amazing architecture, the mingling between European Art Deco facades and all new glass buildings featuring incredibly clever LEED technology. I’m excited about what each day brings, everyday there is an opportunity to create a unique, truly satisfying experience to help a client realize their dream of owning a piece of this wonderful city”

My husband and I were very impressed and appreciative of how Alex handled all aspects of our search for a rental and application/closing process. Alex quickly and accurately determined our preferences and needs for an apartment and only showed us what we wanted and what was in our price range. He was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. We recommend Alex highly.

Alex was really wonderful to work with. He was honest about all of the apartments he showed us: their positive and negative points, their price relative to the market, and their comparison to others we'd seen. We felt we could really trust him, and when we chose a place he worked hard to help us get a few things fixed before we moved in. He's been in touch to follow-up since the move and has been in general an incredibly responsive and reliable agent. We heartily recommend him.

Alex was the most helpful broker I've ever had! Not only was he so patient and respectful, listening to me and my brother's needs, but he was amazingly helpful in finding us an apartment in a neighborhood we had never even considered. We found a place that we absolutely love and plan to be in for awhile. I would recommend him to everyone. Additionally, he's taken my calls and texts whenever I needed his help and been extremely generous with his time. Definitely listen to his advice and suggestions! He will get you an awesome apartment.

I generally don't write reviews, but in case it's definitely necessary. My roommates and I had the pleasure of working with Alex Galiceanu and Oana Negrea. They were both extremely professional, knowledgable and helpful. The process of looking for an apartment at first was overwhelming for my roommates and I, but with their help it was seamless. We found a place that we all loved pretty quickly, which was great! After we found the apartment, it didn't stop there they helped answer any questions that we had with great detail. I would recommended Alex and Oana to anyone who is looking to rent or purchase a home.

Alex was amazing!

A few weeks ago my two roommates and I were looking to rent our first apartment in Manhattan. We had contacted a few real estate agents from several companies requesting to meet during the week anytime after 6:30 pm (since we all work full time) which was a problem for most agents that we spoke to. One agent from another company agreed to meet us at an apartment for a 7:00 private showing, however the place was over our asking price and budget. It was also a two bedroom that could be converted to three. We did not like the place and were rushed out because it was late. We never even bothered contacting her again since we did not feel she was going to 100 % be able to find us a place.

The next week we contacted Alex and he got back to us right away. Alex took the time to meet with us quickly and had his assistant Oana show us apartments all meeting our budget and with three bedrooms. Oana met us at 8 pm on a Friday and went out of her way to spend hours with us. Oana is great because she showed our apartment which we LOVE and are moving into on Saturday! She even took us back to the apartment after we signed the lease so that we can measure all of the rooms.

Thanks to Alex and his lovely assistant Oana making the process so easy and enjoyable for us we found our perfect apartment! He also gave us tons of advise and suggestions to make us feel comfortable, and make our move a bit easier. We really appreciated this since it is our first time renting.

We love Alex and would highly recommend him to anyone :)

I had a very limited time to find an apartment in New York; I spent my first few days here rushing from one end of the city to the other looking for a suitable place to live. Once I called Alex and arranged an appointment everything seemed to fall into place. He was understanding of my situation, courteous and did everything possible to show me places that suited my needs that were within my budget. Once I settled on an apartment he liaised with the landlord on my behalf and was very professional at dealing with minor difficulties that arose along the way. A great guy and I could not have asked for more. Highly recommended.

Alex was great to work with! He understood what we were looking for in an apartment and found what we wanted in a short time for a great price! Alex is very helpful and makes sure that you know everything you should about the landlord and the building.

This review is mostly for Alexandru's assistant, Oana, who I had most of my contact with during the process--as a team, they were obviously incredible... Oana is amazing! I didn't end up finding an apartment with them, we ended up having things change on us but I know for a fact that she is an incredible broker-and since they work together it must go full circle. She was so honest and truly cared about finding us the right place--with everything from our budget to those little details we were so picky about taken into account. We had a difficult viewing schedule to work with, and on more than one occasion Oana stayed up to show us apartments at 2:00 in the morning to work with my boyfriend's intense work day! She is truly remarkable, was never too pushy, and fully understood our needs. I remember even a particular moment when she could have so easily pushed for a more expensive apartment, but knowing what our priorities were, she trumpeted for a cheaper one that she knew was a better fit and more within our budget. I had such a jaded view of brokers before I met Oana--I hope everyone is lucky enough to work with her and Alexandru on finding their home because she will go above and beyond for you and be such a kind spirit the entire time. They are a great, GREAT team. Couldn't recommend enough!!!

I did not rent an apartment from this agent.

If there were six stars instead of five, Alexandru would get them from me! This agent is one of a kind, a real people person. From the start Alexandru was completely engaged in finding us the perfect place. My roommate (see review below) and I had a magical and super stress free experience with the one and only AG. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN AGENT THAT WILL FIND YOU A REALY NEW YORK CITY APARTMENT LOOK NO FURTHER. we are so happy with the results, and would reccomend alexandru to any and EVERYONE! Get in line people, you've found your agent :D

****WOW!!!!*** Alexandru is simply the best. He not only went ABOVE and BEYOND to find us our dream home in NYC, but he was also so kind, courteous, knowledgable, and informative throught the ENTIRE process. After hearing just NIGHTMARES about NYC realtors, Alexandru was a BLESSING to work with. *AG is the way to go!*

I am moving to NYC from Ohio and had very limited time to find a good apartment in a nice area, Alex and his team made everything much less stressful than if I tried to find an apartment on my own in only one day! He was especially helpful in directing me to a good landlord and assisting w/ all the paperwork involved. I would definitely recommend him for anyone looking for an apartment in NYC.
