If you're looking for the best...
Alex mentioned early on that he aims to 'over-deliver'. He succeeded, and then some. His excellent reputation preceded him. We were looking for the best agent in Edens Landing, and Alex's name kept coming to the fore. And now after final settlement of the sale of our property, we can say without reservation that Alex is a class act -- someone at the very top of his game. Alex got the price we wanted, from a very solid buyer, and all within one week of going to market! It was truly an outstanding outcome. Alex made the entire process smooth and hassle-free. In fact, the whole team at Harcourts was a pleasure to deal with. Choosing Alex to sell your property is, frankly, a very smart decision. We cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you, Alex and Michaela, for a job very well done.

Alex is a star!
Easy going, well-spoken charming character I never met in person but wouldn't mind to invite him for dinner. Excellent communication skills and outstanding knowledge of the local real estate market. Available 24/7, hardworking keeping me up to date with latest developments. All boxes ticked as far as I can see. Strongly recommend Alex as real estate agent whether you buy or sale. Absolutely pleasure to deal with Alex. Thank you, Alex, once again.
- Waldemar (Vendor)
An agent with integrity, great price too!
I would describe myself as a cynic. It's part of the reason I'm good at my job. I don't trust people very easily. I believe trust has to be earned. When the receptionist answered 'It's a great day at Harcourts, how can I help you?' I was initially a little sceptical because it's easy to say, but another thing to live out. However, Alex and the team at Harcourts are all incredibly positive. They really seem to enjoy their work. We assessed Alex against three other mainstream agents and he was the most positive. We sold a unit with him which had a bit of a point of difference and Alex knew that to get the best price, a buyer would have to be found who appreciated that difference. Alex had the cheaper commission, the cheaper advertising package and believed a buyer could be found willing to pay that little bit more. During the sales process, Alex acted with integrity and with reassurance for my wife and I as we were first home sellers and did not really know what to expect. The whole sales process was handled well and everything I was lead to expect from Harcourts came to pass. Alex and the team at HarcourtsM1 Beenleigh are a team that I trust and if I had the opportunity, I would definitely do business with them again.
- Stephen (Vendor)
After our property being on the market for over 3 months with another agent, Alex sold our property in 10 days for the amount we were after. His knowledge and abilities are at a very high standard. Alex's communication was above and beyond what you could ask for from your agent. We highly recommend him and his team!

Alex – A Man of Action
Alex was recommended to us by a friend and we were never disappointed. Always prompt, well presented & very in tune with the market in Edens Landing. Alex enlisted a great marketing strategy which achieved an excellent result in a very short space of time and then he managed to achieve a good price for our home. Would not hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone thinking of buying or selling.
- Michael & Irene (Vendors)
He was great!
I would like to recommend Alex Stassen of Harcourts M1 Beenleigh as an excellent agent. Alex was so effective I had 4 offers on the first open day, and the photos posted on line showed the house off to best advantage. Besides selling my house in record time, Alex was a tower of strength in helping me with my next purchase, advising me on negotiations and property values. I returned to Alex after a previous sale which went well and am very glad I did. Thank you so much Alex, I know I can count on you for sound property advice whether buying or selling.
- Iolene (Vendor)
We were very pleased with Alex as he was straight forward in telling us about the market and of recent sales in the area. He certainly has the contacts and kept us informed all the way through our sale. We would not have any hesitation in recommending Alex to our friends. Keep the good work up Alex.
- Kenneth & Bernice (Vendors)

Buying house made easy!
Thanks, so much Alex and Harcourts M1 team. Bought my first home and never thought it's going to be that easy. Reliable and honest agent, very helpful and understanding. Definitely recommend to everyone.
- Dr Khan (Buyer)
We were extremely happy with the way Alex handled the sale of our property. Right from the start Alex communicated well to us his plans on how to sell the property, his knowledge of the area and current properties. Alex also listened to us that we needed and agreed on realistic pricing. He followed this up by consistently working through offers until we were happy to sell and the buyer was also happy to buy. Win win for us all. We would highly recommend Alex if you have a property to sell.
- Virginia & Graeme (Vendors)
Wow what can I say he is a gentleman, very helpful nothing is too much trouble I explained my situation to Alex and my needs and he found me the perfect home within days he is full of knowledge and helpful hints. I would go to Alex for a sale/purchase or to rent without any hesitation very trustworthy Thank you so much Alex I love my home
- Sarah (Buyer)
Alex was excellent to work with!
Alex listened to what we wanted and worked with us to achieve the best result possible. He provided consistent good advice, was incredibly helpful and addressed all of our concerns empathetically. Alex found the perfect buyer and sold our house for a price we were happy with. He has an honest, down to earth approach, that sets him above the rest which after interviewing a lot of agents made it clear he was the right choice. We highly recommend Alex Stassen to sell or buy your house.
- Nikki (Vendor)
Brilliant real estate agent
Alex is a brilliant agent with extensive knowledges of the market. Great communication with buyer and seller and accommodate needs from both sides. 👍👍
- Michelle Chan (Vendor)
Alex Stassen turned around the sale on my property promptly and his communication, negotiation and professionalism throughout the process was exemplary. Alex originally sold the property to me so I experienced working with Alex on both sides of the sales process and he met every expectation going above and beyond to get a quick result for me.
- Jennifer (Vendor)
Alex was very proactive in selling our property and we are happy with the result he got for us. He worked hard to get us the price we wanted on a sound contract. Alex was extremely good in communicating with our tenants and ourselves and providing a smooth transition. His knowledge of the area and what your home is worth is very good. Alex did not hesitate to answer the difficult questions with honesty and humour. We would be happy to recommend Alex to sell your home or rental. Thank you.
- Nancy and Steve (Vendors)
Alex is one of the best agents we have had the pleasure of dealing with, our property we brought is amazing, we absolutely love it and couldn't be happier, would highly recommend him to anybody we know wanting to purchase a property.
- Rob and Michelle (Buyers)
Friendly, informative and very approachable!
From the first point of contact (phone call) Alex was attentive to our needs and requests when looking for a property. As we are shift workers he was happy to work around our times, by receiving and making phone calls outside of the normal business hours. Alex and all the other staff (especially Gill, Corrine and Emma) have been very helpful and friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alex and his crew to other property buyers.
-Gavin & Karen (Buyers)
It has been wonderful dealing with you, your help and knowledge made everything easy to understand and you made the whole process of selling our property go smoothly. Thank you for your professional service.
-Graham & Karen (Vendors)
We would like to formally say thank you to Alex for his professional attention to the sale of our investment House located at 103 Castile Cres Edens landing. We were very pleased with the selling campaign and of course the ultimate sales result. On our first and subsequent meetings Donna and I felt very positive and trusted that we placed our Investment property in good hands. Thank you for the guidance, advice and support that you gave Donna and I throughout the whole sales process. The experience of selling our home was made all the less stressful through your demonstrated professionalism and keeping us informed of prospective buyer feedback, vendor meetings and preparation of all possible outcomes.
- Andrew & Donna (Vendors)

Stress Free Agent
Selling our home of over 18 years was not easy to deal with. Alex is a very professional agent who made the transition for us simple and stress free. His expertise with the presentation of our home was very impressive. He kept us informed at all times of any possibilities of a contract and his positive nature gave us confidence. We would have no hesitation recommending Alex to anyone selling as we feel he is a brilliant and dedicated agent.
- Rod and Maggie (Vendors)
“I wish to express my sincere thanks to you for the thoroughly professional manner in which you dealt with my daughter and me from our first meeting until after settlement. Purchasing a new house is a fraught process and ours was particularly so, given the pressure on us to find a place quickly.
Your courtesy, patience and knowledge of the suburb helped to reduce the burden of stress we were experiencing and on many occasions, we commented to each other how fortunate we were to have met you.
You stunned us in being available on your days off and I believe this is indicative of your 'above and beyond' attitude to your work. Your unflappable nature and around-the-clock accessibility made dealing with you a pleasure at all times. It is not an understatement to say that you are the most outstanding and committed agent with whom I have dealt and I wish you every success in this field.”
— Ann Meadows & Louise Meadows (Buyer)
Stress Free Experience
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for making the selling of my property a considerably less stressful experience than I expected."
"You showed commitment and ongoing confidence that the house would sell and I am very appreciative of your enthusiasm. I was very impressed with the service received from you personally, your understanding and approach and all the time and effort you spent helping me get through what was a difficult time."
"I never once felt that I was just one of a long list of properties. You always kept me up to date each week with what was happening, when buyers were coming through and the comments that were being made about the house. You did not push me into making any changes but gave me valuable advice."
"Additionally, even when making contact with anyone from your office, the staff knew who I was, which emphasised once again what a personal service you and Harcourt's Beenleigh offers. I have already recommended you as a trusting agent. Thank you so much, and I will definitely be in touch when I’m ready to buy again."
- Pam Wieff (Vendor)
Efficient and Friendly
“Alex was on hand and on time at every stage of the process from the initial consultation to the negotiation of offers, the signing of the contract, the pest and building inspection to the final settlement and handover of keys. The sale itself took less than a week from the date the property was listed and although there was only one interested buyer he was keen and cash-up. During the offer stage Alex negotiated an increase of $20K (approximately 10% of the sale price) from the initial offer to the offer which I accepted. The sale price was at the top end of the market appraisals initially submitted by Alex and another leading Beenleigh agency. The whole process was handled in a very efficient, friendly and professional manner.”
- Grahame King (Vendor)
Exciting and Stress Free
“We were lucky enough to become first home owners recently and wanted to extend a big thank you to Alex Stassen for his support and guidance during this exciting time.
How great it was to find a real estate agent who cared about us as individuals! Someone who returned our call when he said he would and someone who went out of his way to help us from the minute he took our initial call to the minute he phoned to say congratulations on our purchase! We would recommend Alex to our family, friends and anyone wishing to sell or buy a house. Thank you, Alex, for making our experience so exciting and stress free!”
- Sarah and Mick (Buyers)
“Ash and I would like to express our greatest appreciation for the fantastic service we received from you in relation to the purchase of our new home. We found your local and real estate knowledge was invaluable, you went far beyond what is expected of a real estate agent. Thank you for your professionalism and genuine approach in helping us with our purchase, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending you to anyone. Once again, thank you very much.”
— Christa & Ash
Ruthless and Friendly
"In a market that was slow and tough everyone told us not to hold our breath when we put our house on the market. After 3 weeks of listing our house with Alex Stassen we had 3 solid offers and our house was sold."
"Alex kept us constantly in the loop and never took his finger off the pulse. He was professional, friendly yet worked ruthlessly on our behalf. We have recommended Alex to 2 other families that were selling their houses and both of those families were sold and moved out long before the market predicted possible."
"We highly recommend Alex Stassen and will call on him again for future property endeavours."
— Matthew and Kristieanne Smith (Vendors)
Driven and Professional
“What can we say!! We never thought that selling our house could cause us so much stress! However, we were fortunate enough to have chosen you as our real estate agent. During our sale when things started to go haywire you acted with professionalism and you were driven to obtain us another contract. Your passion for your career is evident in your work ethic.
You show a caring attitude towards both your sellers and buyers. We truly appreciate all the hard work you put into our sale, and would have no hesitation in recommending you to any perspective client. We definitely will use Alex again if we ever have the need. Once again, we thank you and all of Harcourts team for all the hard work and effort put into our sale.”
— Jackie and John Davison (Vendors)
