Al was extremely helpful, patient, and kind when it came to finding the right home for me and my fiancé! He pointed out the pros and cons of each house we looked at so we knew exactly what we were getting into. It’s clear that he really cares about his clients above and beyond just trying to sell houses! I would highly recommend him!
Al Ryer is in a class by himself — by far the best realtor we’ve worked with in over four decades of buying homes. Al knows every aspect of the real estate market, has excellent contacts and worked proactively on our behalf to make the entire process hassle-free and even fun. He helped us find exactly what we wanted and then made our offer stand out to get our house at the lowest possible price. Al loves what he does and is a pleasure to deal with. He’s incredibly patient, thorough, totally client-oriented, and available 24/7. In short, he’s the best in the business and has our highest recommendation. Thank you Al!
Al was great through our whole sale & purchase. He somehow got us through a short sale with ease & we are now enjoying our new home! He is educated & guided us at every turn.
We hired Al as our buyer’s agent and he was an amazing realtor for us throughout the entire process. After meeting him, it was immediately clear that he would have our best interest at mind 100% and we were correct. We never felt as if he was pressuring us to put offers in to close the deal, take on more of a house than we could afford, or any of the other things one may worry about with a realtor. He was a genuine treat to work with, incredibly patient with us (it was our first house purchase), and made the entire process incredibly easy. His phone line was always open and any questions we had he seemed delighted to answer. He managed to help get us our home during the middle of the COVID crisis at a VERY good price. Every person he recommended to us (lawyer, mortgage company, home inspector, etc.) were amazing and probably the best in the business for their craft. I’ll be recommending Al for anyone I know whose buying or selling. We were incredibly lucky to find him.
Al, We can’t tell you how much we appreciate your skill and professionalism in real estate. Anytime you would like a recommendation please let us know you made working through the process easier than it might have been.

“As executor of my aunt’s estate I needed to sell her townhouse. I reside in Illinois & knew nothing about the Buffalo market. Al Ryer was outstanding in marketing the property and did more that I could have done myself in getting repairs completed prior to closing the sale. I can’t imagine that many agents follow up after workers are there to check the property. Luckily Al does that because he discovered a leak and got it repaired before any damage could occur! That’s what I call service! He even cleaned the floor! Dealing with Al was a pleasure and the best experience I’ve had in selling, and I have sold 7 homes.”
—H. Donald Fronc

“Al Ryer called me back in a timely fashion, every single time I called. He always answered my questions & solved any problems that arose. I can’t say enough nice things about Al. He truly is a talented agent with a wonderful personality but it is his knowledge & professionalism that I appreciated most. I tell everyone who wants to sell their house to call Al.
Al was referred to me from my friend—her house stayed on the market for 2 years but then Al took over and sold her house very quickly. Al is a great asset to RE/MAX.”
“I feel that you have gone above & beyond for me thru the whole process. I can’t begin to thank you enough. I appreciate all the time and effort you put into guiding me thru the real estate process. Thank you for your calm guiding hand thru it all, it was invaluable! Many, many thanks!”

We have recommended Al to many of our friends who are buying and selling and will continue to do so."
—J. R. Benshoff

"My selling experience was a disaster prior to getting Al Ryer involved. He is an absolute professional who is knowledgeable, hardworking and does what he says he is going to do. I had 3 very disappointing agents before Al. My deal was very complicated and Al did an excellent job handling the issues and the people around the issues. Al also has “people skills” & follow through – Best agent I have ever worked with."

People like Mr. Ryer should be in a position of teaching other realtors how the job should be done."

"My selling experience was excellent. Al was very professional, years of experience & honest. The home I sold had many showings. Lots of exposure. It sold for the price that I wanted and was a cash sale which is even better. Al kept me informed after each showing on what the buyers thought. Always lots of follow-up during the showings and during the pending sale process right up to closing. I could not have been more pleased with the results. Thank you Al and Marie!"
—Edward W. Bush
"Al provided an initial instructional session and continued to "teach" along the way. He was experienced and shared his knowledge. He was responsive and proactive when needed. He made himself available and responded quickly to any emails/calls. The process was much less painful than I expected because of Al. The whole thing went smoothly and efficiently given it was a "short sale" purchase. Glad I had Al."
—Patricia Sperle - Buffalo

We were able to trust her instinct and knowledge, which put us in a home that is just what we were looking for at the price we waned. Marie always answered our calls and returned them very quickly, she was amazing to us. We couldn’t have been happier or felt more supported by our agent and recommend her all the time; we wouldn’t go to anyone else!"
—Niki and Brett in NT
"Al Ryer was fantastic through every step of the process of selling our home. I would, and have, enthusiastically recommended Al to any WNY buyer and/or seller. He is the most friendly agent we have every worked with and was always pleasant, reachable and honest. Al Ryer Rocks!"
—Laura and Jason in Buffalo
"Everything was excellent when working with Al. He had no weaknesses and fantastic communication."

Al was able to sell our home in a timely manner and he was always professional, informed and excellent at communication. He made us feel that our house selling was top priority."
"As it was our first time buying a home, Marie and Al made the experience for us very relatable, personable and educational. Any question along the way was answered very quickly whether it was 9am or 9pm. She made herself very accessible and helped us create a power hitting team to get through all obstacles of buying the house of our dreams."

"My mother's house had a bunch of drawbacks, i.e. pilasters in the cellar that were non functional and a lack of cosmetic updates. Marie was able to point this out to potential buyers and found a buyer willing to deal with these items. This is the first time I had to sell a house, I felt it went very well."
"My house was a short sale. Al is very intelligent about completing this type of sale and excellent in his field of work."
"Al has already sold one property for us, is listing a 2nd & is soon to list my own home plus I have purchased a new home through him! This says it all! He makes each step easy & takes over the burden which is so important to me with my busy & erratic schedule.
Al is always accessible, understands current market conditions, & knowledgeable. He always provides honest information with both the positives & negatives."
"Al was wonderful, thorough and explained everything to us. We put the house on the market late Friday and it was sold on Monday!"
"Al gave us the most wonderful introduction & lecture about the housing market & buying process. He was so generous & thoughtful when it came to our needs & questions, we had many! He guided us thru the whole process & shared his knowledge & expert advice along the way. We heard from many people how exhausting & trying the home buying process is & we saw none of it. It was great!
Al is the best asset Re/max has in Western NY. Thank you so much!"

"Al was very knowledgeable- took the time to answer all of our questions, extremely quick to return calls/emails/texts messages. He taught us about the home buying process & looked out for our best interests.
This was our 1st home buying experience & working with Al was really great. We literally knew nothing about buying a home at the onset of this process. Al took a lot of time in explaining everything to us & answering all of our question.
All in all, Al made this process very easy & fun! We would recommend him to everyone!"

"Al’s knowledge and accessibility was great! He has great understanding of current market trends. Al also made a very stressful time more manageable."
"As a 1st time home buyer, I was extremely anxious about the process & overwhelmed, not to mention uninformed. Al was able to educate us on the entire process & stood by us every step of the way. Al was always available for any questions we had & made the process of buying a house a manageable task. I cannot thank Al enough for being honest with us & guiding us rather than pushing us. He was great."
"Al was able to teach us and help us make a good decision where my interaction with other real estate agents was not the same. His expertise help explain the whole process. Al was also always available for any questions & made the buying process a manageable task. He was great.

—J .Ferrentino Enterprises
"I have had no experience prior to working with Al, except for the purchase of my home 19 years ago. I explained my desire to buy low cost homes, repair them myself & resell them. Al spent a great deal of time teaching me what to look for & what not to buy. He explained costs to buy as well as to resell. Al has been a god-sent in helping me get my new business off the ground & I look forward to many years of working together to make us both money. I also trust Al a great deal & I consider him a friend."
"I first called Al from a “for sale” sign. After speaking with him for 20 minutes, I asked him if he would be my buyer’s agent. His team includes Val & Marie & they too are 2nd to none. They would drop everything to show me a house or answer my questions. I found the right house & Al’s negotiating were tremendous. I will always refer Al, Val & Marie. RE/MAX is a far better company with Al, Val & Marie. Please post this testimonial on Al’s website as I would like everyone who is dealing with him to know they are dealing with the best agent there is."
"We met Al Ryer at an open house & were impressed with the time Al took to talk to us & his sincere knowledge.
Al was extremely quick w/responses, professional, informative about the areas (as we were out of state), patient & helpful. He even visited homes for us & took pictures of houses of interest for us & sent them via email. Fabulous!"
—Kathryn & Jon Kittredge
"I just wanted to take a minute to thank you so very much for taking such wonderful care of my parents, Don and Dottie Denneen. They are all settled into their new place, and happy! The new owners of their home called to thank them, and tell them how much they love their new home. That was so nice for my parents to hear. It was so hard for them to give up their home. Your kindness and understanding of what they are going through right now is so appreciated by my brother and I. It's easy to see why you are so successful! If you care to send me some of your cards, I will happily give them to my clients."
—Patricia Muse and Joe Denneen
"Mr. Whitehead, I assume you are very busy, so I’ll keep this brief. I just wanted to highlight the top-tier work of one of your agents named Al Ryer in Williamsville Ny. This note is over 24 months overdue, but Al helped us move out of one house and into another in Amherst NY in the fall of 2003. We had a few adventures with some local agents not playing ethically in a “charged” market at the time. Al was consistently ethical, professional, and made us seem like we were the only clients he had at the time (when I know he deals with bigger closings all the time). I image you hear more from folks when people have complaints, and I don’t often take time to draft notes like this one. So I hope you will take time to recognize the fine work done by Al Ryer, and set him as an example for your other agents. I continue to recommend folks to Al with 110% confidence."
—Dave Pizarro VP eBusiness – HSBC Bank – Buffalo, NY

"Al Ryer did a wonderful job. He went above & beyond what was expected of him. We will recommend him to anyone selling or buying a house."
—Russel Bickert Jr.
"Al Ryer is simply the best agent I have ever dealt with when buying a home."
"Just a note to thank you for all you did for us. Looking for a house can be extremely stressful but you made things so much easier with your words of wisdom and encouragement. You were so organized & walked us through each step successfully. Now that we are here, we are so happy. With some time & work we will have this house looking just like we want it. Again, we thank you for a dream come true. We were so fortunate to work with someone so positive & caring. It definitely makes a difference. Best of luck in all you do & do not forget to stop by & see us when you are in the area. The jacuzzi is heating up!"

Not only have we found them to be most professional & knowledgeable about real estate transactions but they also performed way above "the norm" in seeing a transaction thru to its close. Not only would we use them in any future real estate transactions but would also highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you."
