Alex Boylan's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with
Alex Boylan

    • Alex was GREAT to work with. He opened our eyes to areas that fit our lifestyle that we werent already looking at. He explained every component of making a strong offer and helped us understand why we were unsuccessful with our previous offers with another realtor. Whenever we were worried, he was able to talk us off the ledge and make us feel comfortable without being pushy. Our FIRST offer on a house with Alex was accepted and he continues to be an excellent resource for us. He checks in regularly and gives us contact info for all the best people to help with the projects we want to do. We highly recommend Alex to anyone and everyone who is even thinking about buying a house!

      - Eva Fazzini
    • We worked with Alex to sell a home and he was fantastic! He was always professional, available to answer all of our questions and marketed our property to sell quickly and for the highest possible selling price. I highly recommend Alex and would definitely work with him again.

      - Michelle Rorer
    • Alex provided us with incredible service and expertise. We were in a position where we needed to find a house as fast as possible, and that house also had to have some very specific features that we could not compromise on. Alex helped us find the perfect house that fit us, and when it came to making an offer on that house, he crafted a very competitive offer that allowed us to get the home without blowing up our budget. Alex is very knowledgeable, experienced, and he will be open and honest with you when you are going through the home buying process. We could not be more happy with how everything worked out and we would recommend Alex to anyone looking for a realtor.

      - Alexander Rozelle
    • e have worked multiple times with Alex and his crew. Each time he is readily available to help find a new house to make a home. He is honest about what he sees in the neighborhoods and in the houses which helps to make an informed decision. This time he was very helpful with staging our home so that we were able to sell in one weekend while we were still living at the house and a bonus that it sold for more than asking!

      - Madeline Scheidt
    • Alex has been with us over the course of a 5 year journey to find our forever home. 5+ years ago he spent months with us scouring the twin cities for a new home, one which never lead to a purchase. Alex however never lost touch and was there after one phone call on a Sunday afternoon when we decided to look at a home across town. Just three houses later Alex helped us separate facts from our feelings (while not discounting them) and worked with us to create the perfect offer that lead us to our forever home and we could not be more thrilled. Alex was supportive and consultative during the entire process. We felt at ease working with him and the entire Edina team and now one month in, we love our house more today than the day we made that offer. Thank you Alex!

      - Tricia Peterson
    • Alex was great to work with! A very professional partner in our home sale/purchase journey. He kept us informed of the steps along the way and decisions we needed to make that left us feeling confident in what we were doing. Highly recommend!

      - Matt Weier
    • Alex was absolutely a pleasure to work with. He was always available and was incredibly responsive. He was able to give us referrals for our final house projects which put my mind at ease knowing that Alex had experience with them. Alex was always early to everyone of our meetings and very well prepared. He was always able to answer all of our questions and answer them honestly, whether we wanted to hear it or not but it was always great advice. Everything that he said, happened! I would recommend all of my friends and family who need a realtor to Alex. You won't be disappointed!

      - Jordan Bondley
    • If you're looking to buy a home, do not hesitate for one second to work with Alex Boylan. We had the best experience buying our first home with him. I knew I wanted an old home but of course with that comes some risk. Alex knows EVERYTHING about homes (old and new) and renovations. He is honest and guides you in the right direction. He truly cares about his clients and was able to find us a house we love in this crazy market. Amazing communication throughout the whole process and I know we will continue to keep in touch and work with Alex again in our future.

      - McKenzie Scholz
    • Alex helped us get a full price offer on the sale of our home in Minneapolis. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home, especially in the Bryn Mawr neighborhood of Minneapolis.

      - Nick S. Ross
    • Alex made the process of selling our condo in Minneapolis seamless, even as we had moved out of state suddenly for a new job. While we have a long standing friendship, he kept it very professional and shielded us from any stresses involved with the buyers. I recommend Alex & his group to anyone in MN buying or selling a home.

      - Justin Haines
    • Alex and Christine know their business. Especially in the Bryn Mawr and surrounding areas of Minneapolis and nearby suburbs. On top of the market to give you awareness of opportunities before they go public.

      - Dennis Fazio
    • We sold and bought a few homes with Alex's very professional and attention to detail help!! Everything went so smooth & quick!! He is so nice to work with and we wish him and his wife the Best in their new venture working together!! You can't go wrong working with this team!!!

      - Daniel Strom

      - Bill BEDFORD
    • Alex is a wonderful Realtor he works for you. I have never seen an Agent ever do that for anyone. I am very well satisfied. If you have any questions he gets back to immediately. I give Alex a rating of 200%

      - forbidden2966 - Sold a Townhouse home in 2021 in Plymouth, MN.
    • We closed our first home today, and thanks to Alex, everything went smoothly. We talked to a couple of realtors before we met Alex and even though they were all good, Alex stood out with his expertise and laidback personality. He always made himself available, answered all our silly questions, and never pushed us to do something we were uncomfortable with. What we appreciate the most about him is that he kept reminding us to stay within our comfort level given our lifestyles, as we tended to change our budget after seeing nice condos. Buying the first place was super stressful and overwhelming, but Alex made sure that we knew what we were getting into and reassured us along the way. We couldn't be happier as we got our condo at a great value thanks to his negotiation. We will definitely recommend him to everyone we know and we have already told him a couple of times that he will be responsible for our place in the next few years when we move :)
