Al did a wonderful helping us find our first home. He explained the process to us with patience, and was with us every step of the way as we put offers in on multiple homes. He worked with us for several months as we figured out this process, and we absolutely love our new home!!

Al did a wonderful job in helping me find the perfect condo. He was well informed and attentive. I was very impressed with his knowledge of the condo market and he was able to direct me to precisely what I was looking for. Unlike some other realtors I have encountered, Al was very communicative. He kept me well informed about current issues and told me what to anticipate next. I came to appreciate his laid back demeanor when things started to get stressful. I would highly recommend Al.

Alvin helped me buy a condo in Philadelphia. He is dedicated, professional, and responsive. He was able to communicate effectively and get things done in a very timely manner. We feel lucky to have worked with him! Highly recommend!

Alvin was attentive to what we were looking for in a new home and steered us to the development where we ultimately purchased a house, which was one we had not thought we were interested in initially. He was available to use throughout the process with expert advice. He was approachable and accessible and we enjoyed working with him very much!

Al was such an amazing resource when we were trying to find a house to rent in the Main Line from across the country. He helped to find houses that fit our criteria, arranged visits to the houses, served as a liaison with the landlords and property managers, and answered all our questions as only an experienced realtor can. Importantly, he kept our anxious impulses in check during a tricky period and prevented us from making dumb mistakes. We were lucky to have worked with him during our house search and would highly recommend him.

We used Al to find a rental at the mainline. The rental was very short notice and he worked tirelessly to find the right place for our family. Al was very dependable and help us work through the entire process. I highly recommend Al.

Al has been helping us to find a new place to rent in downtown Philly and took us to various areas of it while always showing a lot of patience. This helped us evaluating where we would best relocate. Somewhere without construction, a difficult task at this time in the city. He even went to visit some place outside of my available time to see additional options. Finally Al is so knowledgeable about the housing rules that it was a big advantage for negociations. Thank you Al. Hope to work with you again in the future.

We recently moved from Virginia and happened upon Al while replying to a listing for a rental house. We weren't thinking about using a realtor, but after a few emails back and forth, Al had set up a tour of rental homes that met our needs much faster than we were able to do for ourselves. He was truly helpful in taking us through the process and helping us make a quick decision, working with the homeowner's agent to figure out move-in conditions and costs that worked for everyone. He made sure that everything was up to par when we moved in, and has checked back in a few times to make sure we're still happy. I highly recommend working with him!

Al is very responsive and a trustworthy realtor... he has good knowledge and showed high level professionalism during the whole time. Besides helping on the house rental, Al also helped me on the utility accounts opening including offering a ride to PECO office in Phili downtown in order to accelerate the process.

We were very happy to work with Al Belden to find our home rental. Al quickly understood our need. As foreigner, we were not exactly expecting the common home, so he adapted his research. We visited a limited number of houses, all meeting several requirements. The perfect home doesn’t exist, and Al also helped us to target the best compromise, between price, location and size. He was very reactive to answer all our questions, was proactive to propose new houses as soon as they were available on the market. He was flexible to meet us and he also helped for topics beyond the loan, as utilities. As expat, he also helped us for social security and driving license. I recommend Al to look for a rental in the Philadelphia main line area.

Al Belden is a superb realtor---a really seasoned, savvy pro. He is very knowledgeable about the metro Philly and Mainline/suburban housing market. Mr. Belden guided us skillfully in finding and purchasing an apartment in the city--one that, that ideally and fully met our needs and wants, ...and at a very competitive negotiated price. He handled all of the details; minimized anxiety and hassles; and made the housing search a surprisingly easy process.
John Murphy Jan 28th, 2017
Mr. Belden is adept at reading and understanding the needs and personalities of his clients. He strikes a perfect balance: he alerts a buyer to a good deal that meets criteria; is priced within range; and is likely to sell quickly, Yet he never pressures or fast-talks the client into acting too quickly to make a deal. He puts the best interests and satisfaction of clients first- a hallmark of an excellent, ethical, experienced realtor/agent.
We enthusiastically recommend Al Belden to anyone looking for a thoughtful, thorough, and extraordinarily effective "partner" in your home search.
We moved from New York to the Chester County area and Al was extremely helpful and responsive throughout the whole house hunting process. He was quick to help us narrow down the search to the type of house and property we were looking for, set up all of the inspections, helped negotiate the final price of the house, and even went above and beyond helping manage some of the vendors we needed to hire to make the necessary repairs and updates to the house prior to moving in. I couldn't recommend Al more highly.

Al helped us find a house from abroad and it was a pleasure working with him. He listened carefully to what was important for us, and then proactively developed a plan to help us meet our objectives. Even when we couldn't see the house we selected in person, he developed a video which he narrated to highlight the strong points and potential issues with the house. I would recommend Al to anyone.

Al provided top class service all round in our home buying experience. He was patient and professional though our whole process - always happy to show us new properties on short notice, and worked with our schedule. Al has a very nice demeanor and displayed great attention to detail. His responses were always fast and thorough. Highly recommend!

Thanks to Alvin's support we found our house in Bala Cynwyd, while sitting on our Sofa in France !! As he already well knew our criteria, he advise us on the house and send us a video. as he is a reliable realtor we sign the lease without visiting the house.
