Before listing w Anthony I was with another agent for 6 months and house was not shown even one time. Doors were left open by realtors I listed w Anthony in May and house sold and closed in June. Anthony answered my many emails, calls and texts within 5 min every time. I know I was difficult due to previous bad experience, but head always patient with me. I know he has SO MANY other clients but he always treated me as if I was his only seller. I can't say enough good things about him. He is wonderful!!!! Jeanne Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
I met Anthony and told him what I wanted in selling my home and buying a new one. He gave me a good price to sell for and a buyer made an offer within 3 days for the full price of my house. His associate Karen helped me find a new home within the next 4 days and I made an offer to the seller. My offer was accepted. Now how can you beat that. Gucciardo Real Estate is the way to go.

Anthony has been great every step of the way. He knows exactly what needs to happen when it comes to getting a house sold and will tell you what you need to hear rather than what you want to hear. We followed his recommendations and within a month our home was under contract and we couldn't be happier. Anthony's an energetic, hard working and savvy young man whom we would recommend in a heartbeat.

Great individual to work with, prompt response and even showed during a heavy snow storm. Took care of all that we needed, went the extra distance to make sure we were satisfied and was a pleasure to work with. If ever we decide to sell/purchase another home it will definitely be with Anthony.

Anthony was always there when I had questions thru out the sale of my house, even when I left a message for him on a late Sunday afternoon he called back within fifteen minutes. That kind of service is almost unheard of in todays world. The way Anthony marketed our house it sold fast and more than our asking price. Can't thank him enough for making the sale of our house stress free.

Experience was evident in the local real estate market. Listened to our concerns and was very responsive to our questions. Secured acceptable price and closing date. Was able to guide us for next steps and process and contacted attorney for us. Coordinateed appraisal with us in timely manner and informed us of next steps in process.

Showed me homes
Mr. Gucciardo showed me a house. I made an offer and it was accepted. I signed a contract. Mr. Gucciardo showed the house again after that and came back to me and said the owner had a better offer.
Response fromAnthony Gucciardo
Unfortunately this buyer did not understand that I had a fiduciary duty to my seller to present all offers. I explained to Mr. buyer that he needed to increase his offer after receiving another offer and he didn't comprehend that we were in multiple offers. Needless to say I was able to get my sellers several thousand dollars more. Rather than talk professionally Mr. buyer decided to scream and shout. He also waited a year to post this review.

First off, let me start by saying I have worked previously with some horrendous real estate agents. It is important to know, the licensing requirements in NYS are low standards at best. This is exactly why, I decided to seek out the best agent I could find. One who set high standards for their self and transcended the industry. It was obvious from the beginning of meeting Anthony, I would be comparing cube steak to filet mignon. Anthony, is top notch at what he does, and it is not fair to even compare him to someone else. He cannot be rivaled or matched. He was brutally honest with purchase pricing. Houses I thought I would love, he steered me away from and advised waiting, informing me the price was too high and it would not be a wise investment (which was a major mistake using previous agents). His knowledge of the real estate market is impressive. He doesn't need to research or investigate anything. He just KNOWS. He is very realistic with his price assessment and keeps his opinions very authentic. Having someone familiar with the market from all angles was imperative, and he certainly delivered. His communication is another area that is impressive. I could contact him at ANY....and I mean anytime, and he would almost immediately respond. It is evident that Anthony, lives for his job. His work ethic, knowledge and candid approach helped me buy a house of my dreams, and purchase a home at a price of value. Do yourself a favor and call Anthony. I have made mistakes in the past relying on part time agents, incompetent agents and people with poor communication abilities. I am proud to call this guy my agent. You have a choice when choosing an agent, don't make the mistake of calling anyone else. Less ... More

Anthony Gucciardo is a great real estate agent. Before we found him, we worked with three other agents: one who was employed by a large national company, one who was with a local chain and one who is the owner of the most popular agency in the Albany region. They all made big promises but none of them could sell the house, which was on the market for a year and a half. For competence, professionalism and honesty, Anthony has all of them beat; I only wish we had found him sooner. Most importantly, Anthony understands the market. He was the only agent who gave us a realistic assessment of the price point; we had more showings with him than with anyone. But he also took the negotiation process seriously and got us every penny he could. Secondly, Anthony was consistently available. I never once spoke to an assistant or had to leave messages on an over-elaborate and complicated answering service ? messages that were never returned. Anthony answers his own phone! He took my questions seriously and he always told me the truth. Finally, he didn't give up or lose interest because he had bigger fish to fry; he treats every client like the only client. He was upfront about everything we needed to do to make the sale happen and he took personal responsibility for ensuring the house was presentable, even though we were no longer living there. Of all of the agents that we employed, only Anthony made me feel that the sale was in capable hands. He earned every penny of his commission and I recommend him to anyone who is trying to sell a house in Albany! Less ... More

He had someone else contact me and told me to get pre qual then call.
Response fromAnthony Gucciardo
At Gucciardo real estate group we take great pride in returning all calls promptly. It is our duty and in the best interest of our sellers to ask buyers for prequal letters so we are not bringing unqualified prospects to look at homes. I don't know who this person is but to me it sounds like another agent.

As a seller I felt it was important to write this testimonial for Anthony and advise future sellers as to what we experienced and have come to realize in this ever changing Capital Region housing market. 1. Your home might not be worth what you paid for it, and unfortunately the upgrades and renovations might simply attract a buyer and not increase its value in the marketplace. We learned that the market dictated the price and not us as the homeowner or Anthony as the agent. 2. Prior to Anthony, we were with an agent from Realty USA, and she lured us into signing with her under the promise and notion that our asking price was reasonable and the house was in excellent condition. When no one came to see the home, she had a multitude of excuses ranging from poor weather to massive inventory. Contrary to when we signed with her only a few weeks prior, she said inventory was low and we were priced appropriately. After multiple open houses and no private showings, the many requests from our prior agent started to flood in to do thousands of dollars in updates and at the same time reduce the price. It clearly had something to do with her marketing and advertising because when Anthony came and saved us we had showings immediately. He knew that open houses do nothing more than open your home often times to people looking to compare your home to the one they are selling a block away or nosy neighbors looking to see how your home is decorated. 3. Anthony was direct, honest, and forthright. You DO NOT want an agent that will tell you everything you want to hear in order to lock you into a lengthy contract and then be told by them to lower your price every week when they can?t do their job properly or demand a penalty amounting to thousands of dollars to receive a letter terminating your relationship with them after they failed you. Anthony said to us that at any time if we no longer felt the relationship was mutually beneficial he would release our agreement without penalty, that?s someone who believes in his process and sales approach. Anthony does not need to make money from terminating contracts, he is eager to get paid for working hard and either negotiating for the purchase of your dream house or selling your starter home. Anthony was always available via text messaging, phone, or email. Sometimes we conversed until 11PM going into different marketing and advertising approaches. When we received an offer after only a few short weeks, he negotiated for more, and got it for us. We truly feel that he fulfilled every aspect of his job. For these reasons, Anthony is simply the best realtor in the Capital Region. He focuses on results and not excuses. Brian & Natalie Listed Home In April 2014 Less ... More

We could not be happier with our experience and the personal and professional nature of Anthony and his entire crew. We had a bad experience with our first realtor and committed to hiring the best realtor in our area. We were skeptical this time around and we set out to make the RIGHT decision of who to hire to sell our house and help but a new one. We looked for who sold the most homes in Latham and we sat down with three of them. Anthony was by far the best fit for what we were looking for. He was easy to talk to, knowledgeable, technologically savvy, and aggressive in all the right ways. He followed up with me and assured all of my concerns. After a very short listing (sold to the first person who saw the house - which I credit Anthony because he called me at the time when he felt it was best to list based on what was already on the market) we found a great buyer and sold with no problems. After our first experience, we learned that not all buyers are ready to buy. Anthony found us a real buyer. We had to look for homes a little faster than anticipated. We wanted a dream house in Riviera Estates and he was well aware. The dream house was listed for $20K more than it was worth and more than we had to spend. Anthony gave us sage advice to wait it out. We wanted to see the house, but took his advice and waited one week. What do you know? Price drops $20K from lack of interest and we buy the house!!!' Trust this man and his methods. He is building an amazing company based on getting people what they deserve! Thank you Anthony and your entire team. My family is in our dream home thanks to you!

Folks, the buck stops here. My wife and I used Anthony for our first home purchase, and the process was FLAWLESS. Anthony was 100% accessible 24 hours a day, and I literally waited no longer than two minutes for a returned text or phone call - whether it was 6 AM or 12 midnight. He didn't dance around any question or objection we had, and answered everything head on, 100% wholeheartedly. Regardless of how busy Anthony was, he always treated us like we were his top priority. Bottom line: don't waste your time with M-F, 9-5 agents who return calls a week later, and don't follow up. Purchasing a home is the biggest investment most people will make, so hire someone who has built his career on providing superior customer service and dedication to his clients. Less ... More

I am a wounded warrior, hurt in Afghanistan, and later on the home front after post-injuries. I was in such a bind to get back home, Anthony took my fiance' at the time under his wing, showed her 50 houses in a week, flew me home the next week after she thought she found the one and sure enough...we are loving life in the most beautiful and affordable home in Niskayuna, NY.

In addition to the fact that our home sold in less than a week, Anthony was always extremely fast in responding throughout the process. What a luxury that is. Anthony was always professional and highly knowledgeable of all areas of the home selling process. if there was a bump in the road, he took care of it and made the process less stressful. If you need to sell, we highly recommend Anthony! Thank you Anthony!

As a full time mortgage originator for the last ten years, I have worked with many real estate agents. I met Anthony and his team a few years ago, and would recommend there services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Anthony and I share a lot of the same value's in the real estate industry. Hard working, ethical and honest. And of course making yourself available to handle any questions or concerns during business hours or sometimes a late sunday evening. My phone is always on, and so is Anthony's. Anthony also has a great team behind him. I have personally worked with Abby Gagne on many home purchases. She is a great full time realtor who I would also recommend. Abby is a terrific buyers agent who is extremely patient and knowlegeble.

Listed home, but didn't sell
We had our home listed for sale with Anthony. He seemed enthusiastic to start with. In a tough market, his only recommendation was to lower the price... he was simply not willing to put in any extra effort in terms of open houses, etc. He would not return our phone calls but would send one line emails that said "I will call you soon". It was next to impossible to get him to discuss any strategy with us. Finally, when our contract ended, we requested him to mail the key to a friend - and this is the response we got: "Key is in mail box. I will not waste money on postage for unrealistic sellers." Certainly not the kind of response that one would expect from a good real estate professional! Less ... More
