None. We connected, but it did not work out.
It's is company. Worst service I have ever encountered in purchasing a home. Made to feel like you are a bother. Plus you have to do all of the work.big talkers no game. I would move on and don't even consider using these useless agents.

Spoke with his assoc first about investing in detroit. He was very nice and assured me we would have success working together. I was very excited to work with Albert, especially given his connections. When he called me, he had no bed side manner. Which is not a necessity, but after telling him the type of home Im interested in purchasing, he asked that I email him the description. I never heard from him again. Perhaps this was a weird way of keeping me away from investing in the speculative detroit real estate market. This is the first negative feedback I've ever given in my life, but I did feel let down considering the number of transactions he does each month. And hes, I do have cash and was only looking to invest easy sf homes that I could turn into rental income, nothing intricate. Less ... More
Response fromAlbert Hakim
I am sorry for your Negative experience i have a team of agents that are closing 20-40 transactions per month. We are used to emailing clients and eventually meeting with them and finding them the proper investment home.We have many homes available to everyone and just because a team member calls back they can help you just as much as i can.

Knowledge was pretty good, but low responsive gets a low rating in my book. I asked for specific areas - was constantly shown properties outside. Felt like I was steamrolled at times and certainly not listened to (and that was when the did quickly respond).
Response fromAlbert Hakim
We apologize regarding you negative experience, sometimes the price range and the area are looking for do not always have any properties available. We try to get customers and clients the best property for there money

I have worked with Albert and his staff on several transactions in the eastside of Detroit and I was happy to know he is an expert in REO, HUD, Freddie Mac and Fannie May type foreclosure. I can attest to their high level of professionalism and customer service.

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
His company called me after I inquired to list my property and were completely rude by hanging up in my face in the middle of our conversation. It may have not been him personally but it was someone associated with him.
Response fromAlbert Hakim
I apologize regarding your negative experience we are all not perfect. Sometimes clients ask for opinions and need the knowledge of a experienced realtor like our team. You wanted to list your house with multiple agents and that is not possible.

Albert Hakim, Sam Abdoo and their office team are the best I seen in my years as a Real Estate Investor. Before Albert, I had made several calls to various Real Estate offices and unfortunately not only did I got a negative response but in many way several agents did not show interest in earning my business and I was ask to pay a fee upfront of $200+ dollars for their time to answer my questions, pictures and in many ways I was discourage as a buyer. Then I came across Albert listing and within 10 minutes I got a call back from Sam and he was very knowledgeable and took his time to advise me of the the areas I should be looking to buy my next R.E. Investment. He was very professional and ones I made my way there, Sam and Albert took their time to show me around many areas of Detroit and now working on the purchase of 5 homes. This office will also be my property management since I'm out of Estate Investor. They are very ethical, professional, knowledgeable, the best of the best and very pleased to be doing business with this team. Thank you Albert and staff. Less ... More

If you are looking for a professional real estate agent, we highly recommend Remax Signature and Alberts team for your real estate needs. Albert, Colleen & Catherine's enthusiasm, communication style, and expert advice was second to none when listing my properties. Their guidance on staging, photography, and listing details really showcased my properties, and we enjoyed multiple offers over a few weeks time. Most importantly, our unit sold quickly and at the right price.

Jamie, Thank you for your investment trust in our team and working with Colleen and Catherine.

I have very good experience with Sam Abdoo, a team member of Albert. He is a professional, efficient, reliable agent. It took him long patient time to find a house match my requirement, and after then, he acted very fast, everything done in few days. Continually I will ask Albert to provide management for this house, I believe they will do a good job.

He is professional and very hard working. He will find what you want. He helped our family buy 3 houses. We will work with Albert again in the future. We can trust his judgement and he really does research on the properties to get us the very best deal. When we sell we will be working with Albert. I have no doubt he will sell our house very fast.Trust and honesty is very important in buying or selling.

I understand being busy, certainly we all have jobs and are busy however, if your job is to sell houses why am I, an investor paying all cash looking to buy in bulk, unable to reach you? Needless to say my business has been taken elsewhere.

I was looking for an investment property and Albert and his team helped me the whole step of the way in buying ten investment homes in the Detroit area. I highly recommend his team for their expertise and professionalism and seeing me through the complete transaction for every house. We are now in the process of purchasing 25 more properties from Albert and his team. We highly recommend them.

I would never recommend this agent. The agent was unprofessional and uncouth. I had a strict deadline I was dealing with. Although the agent seemed to have some local knowledge it appeared this agent lacked knowledge in other areas. The agent steered me away from a home inspection on a home he had listed. I found out later the home had major foundation issues. He really pushed all the homes he had listed. I suppose to receive more commission? Also he could not close by my deadline.
Response fromAlbert Hakim
Wow! To make a review and use false statements thats a classy review! I have never shown you a house first off because i have a team of agents that works in my office. How would i steer you away from a home inspection if i never spoke with you or talked with you? With or without your false statements the bank pays a standard commission. On your last false accusation you are a customer and in bank owned properties there are always delays. I am sure next time you want to say you spoke with me be truthful. My staff and Team are very polite and thorough from original call till closing. So please try to spare the false Drama you are writing unless it is truthful. Less ... More

Albert took the time to explain the process of selling my condo, and he followed up with everything that he said he would do. I was very impressed with his team and there willingness to answer any question that I may have had, no matter how early or late. We ran into a few snags in the process but Albert and his team was very patient, and they handled everything through to a very smooth closing. I would highly recommend for any real estate transaction.

All the processes are streamlined with prompt replies to all inquiries and close followup for each of the stages along the purchasing process.

Whenever the words Real Estate are mentioned my thoughts are directed to Albert Hakim who is Mr. Real Estate in my estimation. I received super fast responses to many questions and was treated with respect. Albert is fine example of what a Realtor should be and I would recomment him to whomever was in search of a new or used home. He and his associates have kept up to the latest trends in the Real Estate business and convey their information and expertise to their clients. This is a tremendous advantage for the home seeker because it cuts to the chase and allows the purchaser more time to search for whatever Real Estate he/she is seeking. If this sounds like a sales pitch, believe me, everything I have said about this outstanding individual is true and all I can add is that you give Albert or his associates a call when seeking a home and find out for yourself.

I called and left a message, but nobody got back to me. It seems that every time I try to contact an agent or agency, nobody ever responds. I've tried calling and emailing, neither seem to get a response.
Response fromAlbert Hakim
Exactly like the last review you wrote about an agent, my office and every office out there are here for consumers looking to buy or sell there are policies we all follow. There are six phone numbers to my office and there are fourteen agents. So to say no one called you back is a lie. On my phone and every phone it clearly states all of our email addresses and i personally respond to everyone. So continue your search and maybe when you are really looking to buy or sell an agent will deal with you. Less ... More

Very responsive. Sent me homes that matched the description I provided. Properties that were $1 needed $2000.00 for closing costs and were burnt out shacks, but with land. I sold the properties they sent me, but no one actually paid for them. Albert Hakim and his associates were a pleasure to work with. Straight and to the point. Highly recommend.

First of all i never showed you a property, if it was a member of my team please say the name and not use false accusations regarding me. An offer is never just denied and we have an offer department that handles all offers not the agents. So i would love to know when i spoke with you and did this to you since i have not shown a property in St Clair Shores in 3 Years, Thats why i have a team of well trained buyers agents (6)

I searched for a home in Rochester Hills MI with this agent. He always showed up late to every house we planned on meeting at. I felt this was unprofessional. He did apologize for being late. Also, during one home showing he was on his cell phone the whole time swearing at someone and talking about where he was going to party on the weekend. When I finally found a home, he had trouble negotiating with the other realtor on the price I offered. He said the other realtor didn't like him because of some other deal and we were gonna have to offer more than the asking price or we could forget the deal. After all of that, I decided to not deal with him anymore. He was not the professional he claimed to be and he wasted my valuable time. Less ... More
