What Our Clients Have to Say
As first time homebuyers, Max was absolutely fantastic to work with! Max worked with us for over a year through job changes and having a baby, and he remained patient and incredibly helpful the whole time. He is very knowledgeable about the Stamford housing market and ultimately his advice and perseverance got us our dream home! He is very understanding about how stressful and confusing it can be to buy a home and was amazing at keeping us informed and responding to all of my hundreds of questions very quickly. His vendor recommendations were also spot on! Pretty much everyone I know who has bought a home in Stamford has used Max, and it's clear why!
Anthony & Brittany R., Stamford
Auslander Kasindorf and in particular our agent Max Dober, were amazing in helping us purchase our first home. During our first meeting Max walked us through the process of purchasing a home, asked us questions and listened to ensure he knew what we were looking for, and let us take home a helpful packet of info. He was very attentive to our ever changing needs, and was in constant communication on the market and houses that might interest us, adapting to our preferences and budget even as they changed more than once! He has an extensive network to draw upon for other aspects of the home buying process that were amazingly helpful for us as first time buyers. From mortgage, to lawyers, to painters, to plumbers, floor refinishers, Max had a great reference for every request! We got our floors refinished by Max's reference shortly after moving in and he did an amazing job for a very competitive price. Couldn't be happier. While he provides references, he doesn't pressure you to use his people. We used someone else as a lawyer and for our mortgage, which Max was completely supportive of. We had a lot of back and forth with the seller in our home negotiations and Max was very thorough, timely, and professional in helping us get our message across. And as a final touch, he stopped by shortly after we moved in with a gift. Would not hesitate to recommend Auslander and Max Dober to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Fairfield County CT. Amazing service, professionalism, and execution from start to finish, and beyond!

The Auslander Kasindorf Group was extremely helpful and successful in my search to find the perfect condo for me. Max was my agent and he was everything you could want in a great realtor- he's knowledgeable, friendly, extremely responsive, and never pushy or demanding. It was a pleasure to work with him throughout the home buying process. I would recommend Max and the Auslander Kasindorf Group to any and all friends/family - I can't say enough kind words about them.
Alissa M., Stamford
I recently had the pleasure of working with Todd Auslander and Jeannie Kasindorf in the selling of my home. I couldn't have been more satisfied. They are so professional, organized, and have the whole process down to a science. You can tell they are passionate about what they do. As soon as I made contact with them they both immediately came over to see my property. They made good suggestions as to how I might make it more ready for market. They were able to give me referrals to workmen that got the jobs done reasonably and timely. We sat down in their office and reviewed the comps they had researched to be sure that we had our pricing right as getting that right from the start is so critical. Whenever I had a question or concern I always received an immediate response from one of them. They were there for me every step of the way providing reassurance as needed and always keeping me informed. They brought in a great photographer to photograph the home inside and out. Then Liz Dominguez, another team member, did the virtual staging and description of the property perfectly and it was put on the market. I couldn't believe how fast it all went. I had multiple offers to choose from, above my list price, in 72 hours! I give the Auslander Kasindorf team an A+ rating and I would highly recommend them to anyone without reservation. They are truly a dream team!
Paula E., Stamford
It doesn't get better than Josh. He helped us to find, negotiate, and close on a home in 47 days - unheard of! When we started the process, we were also out of state and looking for a sizable home at a lower price point for Fairfield County. Josh spent a weekend with us driving around different neighborhoods and explaining the market. He's incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and honest. We sent an email asking what he thought of a house, and within 5 hours he drove to the property and took video footage for us. He really has his client's best interest in mind, and has the rest of the Auslander Kasindorf Group to support. We used his recommended vendors for legal, inspection, and lending - and the whole process was seamless. If we were rich, we'd buy another house just to work with this team again.
Erin N., Stamford
I had the pleasure of being introduced to Josh Caldwell in January 2017 when my wife and I were just beginning our search for a house. We are were first time home buyers with not much of a reference point on where or how to even start the process. Within our first meeting, Josh was able to help provide us very helpful starting point guidelines and worked with us to determine where our comfortable price point was. We were casually looking at that moment and Josh never pressured us into moving forward or looking at something we were not interested in. However, he was always upfront, honest and timely with any interaction we had. In mid March Josh let me know about a home he felt fit our needs and style and after looking we put in an offer. Despite some slow downs with the property owner (not at all the fault of Auslander Kasindorf Group), we were able to get everything organized quickly and closed May 5th. I can say with certainty that without Josh's help, this would've been an overwhelming and daunting task and I'm grateful that he was there to guide us through the process from start to finish. It is quite clear to me that Josh is not only a realtor, but an all around good person who has his clients best interest in mind 100% of the time. I cannot recommend him enough to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Ben L., Norwalk
Simply awesome. Max was our agent for our very first condo purchase. He made himself available the day we called although it was last minute. Thoroughly answered all of questions or concerns promptly and made the purchasing and closing process a lot simpler than expected. Very knowledgeable and approachable. Best agent we could ever ask for. Will definitely use him again for our next home purchase in near future.
Ryan K., Stamford
My wife and I just completed the very successful sale of our home together with purchasing a wonderful new home all with the assistance of the Auslander Kasindorf Group. They properly advised us on the realistic value of our home which was the driving factor to completing the sale in a very short time. At the same time Max Dober focused on our new home requirements and within a month or so he found a new home that was ideal. We could not be more please with the whole process and experience, and we highly recommend the Auslander Kasindorf Group whether you are selling or buying a home. You will not be disappointed.
Anthony C., Stamford
Jeannie and Todd helped to make a potentially stressful experience much less difficult. From our first meeting with them to the closing on our home, they were attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. Much to our delight, the procedure went very quickly. They were right there to make helpful recommendations and, in our absence, check to be sure things were done properly. I would strongly recommend them to anyone seeking a reliable, caring real estate firm. Kudos to them !!!"
Janet F., Stamford
Jeannie Kasindorf and Todd Auslander helped us sell our home in Stamford. They are exceptional realtors, in every respect. Smart, organized, experts in the market, and focused on results. They are as friendly as they are professional and make a great team. I would work with them again without hesitation.
Prakash M., Stamford
Jeannie and Todd are amazing!! They are professional, responsive and informative. They set and maintain realistic expectations and tenaciously pursue all leads. They are trustworthy, respectful and polite during all phases of the process, especially during negotiations. Best of all they accomplish the job in a timely manner. One of our best decisions was to enlist their expertise in selling our home. We will be enlisting their services again and would highly recommend them!!
Caroline H., Stamford
Always a pleasure working with Todd and Jeannie! From their expertise pricing the market to staging and taking amazing photographs, we were able to sell our home quickly and painlessly! Auslander Kasindorf Group is hand's down the most professional, knowledgeable group of real estate professionals out there.
Lauren F., Fairfield
Joshua Caldwell was our realtor in our Stamford, CT search and he was a dream to work with. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable about the area/location, and provided guidance throughout the housing search and negotiation process. I highly recommend anyone looking for a home in Fairfield County to work with Josh as their realtor. We ultimately didn't end up buying in CT and I only wish we could have worked with Josh in our NY search.
Melanie B., Stamford
This was my first time at the property buying rodeo. I couldn't be happier w my experience w Keller Williams and Josh Caldwell as my realtor. If you have ever been afraid of being "pushed" into something you don't want...you don't need that concern w Josh and KW as whole. Josh is very personable but professional. He was always honest and we were in control every step of the way. His patience and compassion are second to none. When it came time to swoop in on the one we wanted - we got it in one shot. I've heard nightmare stories of closing and Escrow and all that. Not w Josh. He is well connected and knows the CT area like back of his hand. Smooth like butter! If you are even contemplating buying (or renting) - give KW and Josh a call. You wont regret it .
Jesse O., Stamford
The entire staff at Auslander Kasindorf Group are top-notch; Todd and Jeannie were an absolute pleasure to work with. They made our first home selling experience stress-free!
Sharon S., Samford
Jeannie, Todd, & Josh know their trade! They spent time researching the correct price point to list our home sale to ensure maximum website & home site traffic. Jeannie artfully staged the home to highlight the best points including flow and de-clutter. Their appointment process for showing the home was excellent using an app for our phones & emails. We received multiple offers during the first 72 hours of the listing. Todd handled offers and was quick to respond to buying agents to get us the best price the market would bear. We even had a small bidding situation that drove the price slightly over asking price. Once sold, Josh handled all of out home buying appointments and was very patient. He quickly learned what types of properties we were looking for and showed us 20+ homes over a 3 week period. He handled all inspection issues and moved the purchase process along working well with our attorney. Excellent team work and their back office supporting staff (Liz) were also on top of things. Excellent experience.
Anthony O., Easton
Simply Amazing; Highly recommend. Selling a 130 year old home is not easy. Their improvement suggestions ( for marketability) were excellent and reasonable. Excellent job virtually staging the home and preparing the market. During the first weekend we had ~20 showings. We had email feedback from each showing: Did they like the home? Was it reasonably priced? Level of interest? Monday morning we received 7 offers - 3 below, 2 at and 2 above our asking price -- all within $8,000 if each other. They nailed the valuation. True team effort: Initially all communications was thru Jeannie; during the weekend launch Jeannie was away but Todd seamlessly took over the showings and advised me well on the negotiations with the Buyer including qualifying the offers. I have purchased and sold 4 homes in my life. Jeannie and Todd are by far the best real estate team to date.
Albert V., Stamford
"Josh Caldwell is the consummate professional, and was an absolute pleasure to work with during our first home-buying experience. We met Josh at an open house and were immediately impressed by his knowledge of our target areas (Stamford and Norwalk) and his clear passion working with clients to make what can be a very stressful and overwhelming experience a smooth and enjoyable one. Josh's responsiveness is second to none, and he gladly accompanied us on tens of visits to potential houses in different neighborhoods, and always answered our questions. Josh was instrumental in regularly communicating with (and pressing when necessary) the attorneys on both sides and the bank to ensure that the closing occurred smoothly and on time. We are very happy to recommend Josh, and will look to him first if we are ever looking to buy a new home."
Mike B., Norwalk
"The Auslander Kasindorf team was awesome. From initial contact through advice for staging, to getting those minor annoyances fixed, Jeannie and Todd worked seamlessly together to prepare the house for the market. They were collaborative and proactive in reaching out to other realtors and very responsive to our needs. During the final stages of sale, Todd himself was very supportive in making sure we reached the finish line. We would highly recommend the team!"
Yelena P., Stamford
"The Ausländer Kasindorf Group is amazing. They know the local area and the current market thoroughly. Great advice! Everyone on the team is professional, organized, friendly and are always there for you. They were a a pleasure to work with during the sale of our home. We highly recommend them."
Barbara H., Stamford
"Max was great in helping me buy my first home, he was available for any questions I had and proactive. Helped for an enjoyable experience. Consistently helping to get ahead of deadlines, in an organized way and provided a good timeline of when different things needed to be done. Before I picked a place he was on top of what places were on market and values of each, seemed to know a great deal of market info and info about the Stamford area."
"I worked with Max Dober of Auslander Kasindorf Group and had a fantastic experience. Prior to working with Max, I held a strong belief that I did not need to work with a buying agent and that I could represent myself during the process with the listing agent. I held this view due to the minimal value buying agents had provided in the past to me, usually I was the one identifying properties that matched my criteria and had better knowledge on the market (I'm an avid observer of real estate markets). Max very quickly proved that he is the cream of the crop when it comes to real estate agents. Not only is he the most responsive and diligent real estate agent I have ever worked with but his knowledge of the market is second to none. His honesty and integrity allowed me to feel comfortable and made the process go smoothly. I provided a list of 20 homes that I was interested in and within the same business day Max came back with individual feedback on each property. Within the next business day Max provided a supplementary list of properties which did not match my criteria based on the listing or face value but he had individually checked these properties out and felt I needed to as well. To my surprise, he was right! The house I ended up buying was from his list and the listing (to the seller's detriment) did not accurately represent the property. Had it not been for Max, I would have missed out on this opportunity. If you are reading this review and are on the fence about a real estate agent, trust me, go with Max! Max formulates a strategy with you and executes flawlessly. Normally, I don't write reviews (I'm 45 days late on this) but I had such a good experience that I felt it necessary to let others know so it may help them. Good luck!"
Naj R., Stamford
"Todd and Jeannie helped my sell me home in Stamford, CT and they are great! They are very professional to work with and have been in the business for a long time. My home got two great offers within the first 3 days on the market and we took the highest and best and it was sold 60 days later. They made the entire transaction/experience simple and easy. I highly recommend choosing them as your realtors!"
Lori T., Stamford
“Todd Auslander and Jeannie Kasindorf did a fantastic job helping us prepare for our 2016 move and then listing and selling our house the first day it was on the market. Jeannie and Todd also represented us when we bought our house in 2012. They are professional, responsive, and friendly, and they are expert in the Stamford market. We give them our highest recommendation.”
Sarah & Mike M., Stamford
“The Auslander Kasindorf Group provided absolute service. From the listing pictures to multiple open houses and finally managing the offers they were excellent all the way though. I absolutely would recommend them if you are selling your home.”
Chris L., Stamford
"I had an extremely pleasant experience working with the Auslander Kasindorf Group in purchasing my first apartment. My main point of contact was Max Dober, who was invaluable to me throughout the process as a first-time buyer. Max was knowledgeable, organized, and was always quick to help with a question or concern. I highly recommend Max and the group to anyone looking to buy or rent a home or apartment"
Michael C., Stamford
"I chose Jeannie and Todd to represent me in the sale of my home for two main reasons. First and foremost, they rely on facts, not emotions. They gave me an in-depth presentation on all housing data in my area, what had sold, what hadn't, in various price ranges and competing neighborhoods. Based on this extensive review, it was clear what price range my house would need to be in, in order to sell. Second, the statistics backed up their ability. They had a leading share of the market in my area. Todd and Jeannie showed their competency and professionalism during every stage of the process. They helped me stage the house, carefully worked with me in the negotiation process, and "held my hand" through to the final closing. I would highly recommend this team to both buyers and sellers in the area."
Sara S., Stamford
“As first time home buyers it was important to us that we worked with a realtor who would take the time to walk us through each step in the home buying process and could help us effectively navigate any challenges that came up along the way. Max was outstanding on both fronts, we couldn't have been happier with him. He was patient as we worked to figure out what type of home was right for us and extremely proactive in terms of sending listings he thought were worth considering. When the house we ultimately ended up purchasing came on the market, he wasn't available to show it to us immediately so arranged for one of his colleagues to meet us that evening. He's incredibly responsive and made us feel confident throughout out first home buying experience. We would highly recommend Max!”
Mallory M., Stamford
“Max Dober is the BEST of the BEST. He is knowledgeable, responsible, professional, proactive, and patient, which are the qualities that we needed our real estate agent to have. From the moment we met Max, he took the time to get to know who we were as first time home buyers and guided us into finding our dream home within our price range and requirements. He was always so quick to respond to any questions we ever had via phone call, text message or email. Max went above and beyond for us making us feel as though we were his only clients, and we appreciated that. In case that is not enough, he continues to ask about the progress of the house after we closed! We had a great experience with Auslander Kasindorf Group and will be recommending Max Dober to everyone we know needing to buy a house in Stamford, Darien, or Greenwich.”
Sari N., Stamford
"Jeannie has helped me rent out my condo twice now, and she's done a spectacular job. Since I no longer live locally, I was looking for a realtor who could proactively, independently manage the listing and keep me apprised of the issues. Jeannie and her team did that and much more. They took the lead in working with current tenants to prep the apartment for showing. They pointed out things that needed to be fixed and even coordinated for handymen to carry out the repairs. They advised on price points. And most importantly, they did all of this proactively, professionally and efficiently. I wholeheartedly recommend Jeannie to anyone looking for a knowledgeable real estate professional!"
Nik V., Stamford
"My fiance and I have just purchased our first new home in Stamford, CT. It took us few months to find the house we dreamed of. We were quite limited in our price range and desired area. We also had a million questions and concerns. Yet we were fortunate to work with Josh and his team from Auslander Kasindorf Group who guided us throughout the process from the beginning till the end. They were exceptionally professional and gracious with any limitations we had. Not once did we feel uncomfortable to address our thoughts or concerns. My fiance and I went to see many homes with Josh. He was always well-prepared and flexible. Throughout this time, we learnt that Josh is very knowledgable in what he does and enjoyed sharing his experiences. He is honest, generous with time, and insightful about the industry. We also received all the necessary references to other professionals to ease our journey and complete the process. Our overall experience was great. We highly recommend Josh and his team to everyone who is looking to buy their first or consecutive home, and hope to work with him again in the near future."
Raimonda S., Stamford
“Max Dober is the best! We were referred to him last year and he helped us find our rental. When we decided to buy we knew we could count on him to help. Buying our condo has been smooth and easy and I can confidently say that it was due to his expertise. He is very knowledgeable and thorough, Thanks Max!”
Ashley & Caio, Stamford
“Very energetic team that helped me sell my house in record time! They provided great information to get the house ready to sell. Jeannie was very hands on with staging. They provided in-depth information to set the right price. Todd is very responsive. Overall very happy with the services and would use Auslander Kasindorf again!”
Helen S., Stamford
"Max Dober is the best!! He is an expert on the Stamford neighborhoods and local real estate market. Max listened to our needs, was very patient and helped us during an intense negotiation. He always kept us informed and quickly responded whenever we had a question. We highly recommend him if you need a realtor in this area."
Joanna & Jonathan S.
“Josh was a pleasure to work with. Extremely accommodating, patient, and personable. I was able to reach out to him for not only potential listings, but for advice as well. Josh never was lazy and always one step ahead of the rental game.”
Morgan W., Stamford
"Jeannie, Todd and the entire team from the beginning were committed to help us to sell our home. Every meeting, phone call and appointments were always on time. Jeannie helping us stage our house we feel was very instrumental in what turned out to be a very quick sale. Todd was keeping us informed and updated along the process and always staying in touch with us. Liz and the other team members were equally helpful and professional in answering questions,returning calls and keeping appointments making us feel comfortable throughout the process. Thanks to all"
Lou & Donna G.
"I was incredibly impressed by the care that I was given by the Auslander Kasindorf Group. They were kind and efficient and helped me with every element of selling my home. I would recommend them in an instant to anyone."
Trina C., Stamford
"Todd and Jeannie were excellent to work with. They helped me find a buyer and complete a short sale for an apartment I previously owned. The short sale was a lengthy process, in comparison to a normal sale, and Todd and Jeannie were quick to assemble and manage a team that made apartment showings and negotiations that much more efficient. They were also very considerate of timing and coordinated every showing with the tenants that occupied the apartment. They were patient and kept me informed throughout the process until the deal closed! I definitely recommend the Auslander Kasindorf Group to anyone looking to sell their home or even buy a home. They have your best interest in mind and get the job done! Thank you."
Veronica G., Stamford
“Max and the entire Auslander Kasindorf Group team were very helpful and efficient throughout my entire first-time homebuyer experience. Max was very responsive, organized, and made sure that all parties involved were on the same page at all times. I am very pleased with the end result and highly recommend this office.”
Jonathan Z., Stamford
“Todd was extremely organized and responded quickly to any phone calls. He handled the negotiations expertly, and was very knowledgeable. He also assisted with the coordination of workman in the unit on several occasions, which was very helpful to me because I live out-of-town. I would recommend the group very highly and give it my top rating. I certainly would recommend it and Todd to anyone interested in selling or buying property.”
Dennis E., Stamford
“Todd and Jeannie were professional, responsive, and helpful in navigating us through the sale of our condo. They impressed us with their local knowledge and experience, and ultimately, their marketing strategy was spot-on. They always kept us updated on activity, and were aggressive in making sure there were no delays in the closing process. Overall, a very positive experience - we highly recommend them!”
Kevin & Kimberly W.
"We were very pleased with our experience with the Auslander Kasindorf Group. From beginning to end, they handled our affairs in a professional manner. They were very knowlegable and responsive and fully engaged with us during the whole process. And so we felt fully supported and cared about and that made selling our home that much easier. We would highly recommend the Auslander Kasindorf Group to others!"
"Met with Todd and Jeanie and they explained fully the current real estate market in our area and provided information on the homes for sale in our neighborhood. Their knowledge of the Pepperidge market was very useful in establishing an offering price that was successful in creating many visits and a number of valid offers in the first three weeks of showing. Their continuous feedback and realtor survey information kept us up to date on a daily basis......making the final negotiations and contract process totally understandable and professional. We give the Auslander Kasindorf Group team an A+, and recommend them without reservation. They are the best! The Poholeks"
Frank P., Stamford
"Max Dober was our buyers agent and he was incredible to work with. We were first time buyers and Max was extremely patient with us. He explained everything we needed to know, every step of the way and he was beyond knowledgeable about the entire home buying process and also about the area. You can tell he really cares about his clients best interest and he is ALWAYS available via text/email/phone. We spoke to him on nights, weekends and holidays. (sorry max!) We also had a very challenging negotiation experience and it looked like the deal was not going to happen- but thanks to Max's resourceful and creative thinking it literally pulled the deal back together. We would HIGHLY recommend him!! If you are looking for a realtor who is up front with you and a true professional then you will love working with Max."
Jen & Brian D., Norwalk
"Jeannie is our Real Estate agent and we have used the services of her company twice already. She is a wonderful person to work with. Her professionalism, organizing the things, attention to details and most of all always smiling face are big plus. She is very knowledgeable in Real Estate business and always recommend based upon client's needs. I will highly recommend her to anybody buying or selling a house or condo."
"My husband and I were new to real estate and home buying when we connected with Max Dober through Zillow. Max was patient, informative, honest, professional, and a pleasure to work with. The level of service we received from Max was nothing short of exceptional. While our wish list was not long, we did have specific must-haves which limited us during our search. Max always took the time to check in when he saw a listing that met our requirements, or if it was a quiet week, and nothing was coming on the market, he touched base just to let us know he was looking. From the time we began our search through signing closing docs, Max was constantly accommodating our schedules (as we were relocating from out of state) and making sure we were constantly updated and informed as we approached closing. He put our minds at ease as we took the leap and bought our first property. We closed on our condo in Glenbrook at the end of April and have been very happy. We highly recommend Max to anyone looking to buy. You won’t be disappointed!"
David & Amanda C., Stamford
"As first time home buyers, we were thrilled with our experience working with Max Dober! He provided excellent insight into the market and his extensive list of local contacts proved invaluable to our closing process. We were very specific with our home criteria and Max remained patient, willing to work with us until the end. Max was always available via phone or text and made our first home buying experience pleasant, fun, and stress-free. Could not have asked for better."
Rob & Avery W., Stamford
"Today (4/25/16) I'm celebrating the one week anniversary of the selling of my house. It had been on the market for a while and when that contract expired, I decided to choose another realtor. I met with Todd and Jeannie of the Auslander Kasindorf Group and I was immediately impressed with their knowledge of the market and the time they took to explain all the details of the process of selling my home. Jeannie made herself available to help me get the house ready, staged and looking its best for the prospective buyers. Scheduling appointments was done through my smart phone and I was able to accept showings according to my schedule. After each showing I received a feedback message and Jeannie was always on top of things to follow up with prospective buyers regarding their interest. I was kept well-informed through phone calls, emails and texts and never had to wonder about the status of the sale. And then one day, the right buyer came along and made an offer that I was happy to accept. There was a time of inspections, appraisals, etc. and again I was always kept informed right up to the day of the closing. I couldn't be more pleased with the Auslander Kasindorf group. Each member of the team used their skills and knowledge to help accomplish my goal and I am grateful that I have been able to downsize and with Jeannie's help have found a lovely new place. I would recommend the Auslander Kasindorf group to anyone who is looking to sell their home. I know they will give you the same attention and benefit of their years in the business as they gave to me."
Louise J., Stamford
"As first time home buyers, the process of buying a home can appear daunting, but Max with the Auslander Kasindorf Group made the process easy, smooth and fun. Max was beyond a pleasure to work with. His knowledge of the Stamford home market, his ability to tell us what a house was worth (regardless of what the seller was asking), his ability to spot things in a house that may need repairs and his ability to estimate what that could cost to us all made the experience a lot less stressful and left my husband and I feeling confident in our choices. He let us know when he thought it was time to walk away from a bad home, and honestly talked us through everything when we found The One. Max was always available to talk or text- day or night, whenever we had questions, and especially when we were in the throes of a bidding war. He was smart, kind, funny and a blast to work with. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up."
Gabriel & Amanda G., Stamford
"Max Dober is amazing! As first time homebuyers, he made the process extremely seamless and is very professional and knowledgeable. He addressed all questions and requests in a timely manner and his advice was spot-on. I fully recommend Max and Auslander Kasindorf going forward."
Cindra M., Stamford
"Todd and Jeannie recently helped us sell our home. After failing to sell our home with another realtor, they came in and helped sell our home quickly. They made process easy and stress free. They were extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of the market which helped everything go smoothly. They were very professional and easy to work with and always kept us informed every step of the way. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy and sell a home."
Ioanna & Savvas D., Stamford
"Max Dober was a great real estate agent to work with! He is knowledgeable, responsive, and helped us find me first home! He communicated very well with us especially while we were looking. He was very detailed and observant while we look which helped a lot! He is very personal and trustworthy. Helped me find a home that I love quickly!"
Brittney P. & Joseph S., Stamford
"My husband and I worked with Max and he was beyond FANTASTIC! We wanted to buy a house decided on Stamford. During our first appointment with Max, he asked us all the right questions and was very detailed and thorough. We felt Max really wanted to get to know us and what we were looking for, and most importantly, we felt very comfortable with him as our agent. Throughout the process of looking for our ideal house, Max was very helpful in giving us valuable information about the area and the houses. He would offer us his professional and truthful opinion on each of the houses we looked at. We really felt that Max understood what we were looking. As soon as there was a new listing on the market that suited our criteria, Max would contact us immediately. The house that we eventually bought was exactly what we were looking for. From the moment we decided to put down an offer for the house to the very day we finally closed on the house, Max has been simply EXCEPTIONAL. He made himself available to us at all times (late nights, weekends, and even when he was on vacation). That was very helpful as the seller was moving fast on their end. Max was very knowledgeable as well well and would provide us his thoughts and guidance. My husband and I truly love our house and we wanted to thank Max for being so amazing throughout the process. We would HIGHLY recommend Max to anyone who is looking to buy a house in the area."
Candie L. & Darryl B., Stamford
"I purchased my first home with Max’s help and I couldn’t have been happier with the job he did. Throughout the entire process he was professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. He took my complete lack of real estate knowledge in stride and answered (honestly and candidly) every dumb question I could come up with as a first home buser who has no experience and knowledge in this field . When I fell in love with terrible homes he was supportive but pointed out specific problems and explained potential points of concern; at no point did I feel any pressure to make an offer on a home that wasn’t perfect. I quickly came to trust his instincts – he’d come to completely different conclusions than me after looking at the same pictures but every time he ended up being right. He was always available when I would send him messages, more than once we toured potential homes less than a day from when I first saw the listing. In such a competitive market as Stamford, CT this kind of availability was crucial. Once I was ready to make an offer Max was invaluable in helping me prepare and schedule inspections. In less than four days he was able to put together a very competitive offer in time for the offer review date. He kept in constant communication with the selling agent and provided critical advice on improving my offer in the 11th hour that ended up winning the deal. Without his help I would not be currently living in my dream house. In addition to Max Dober every other Auslander Kasindorf Group employee I worked with was equally professional and knowledgeable. I would Highly recommend MAX DOBER from Auslander Kasindorf Group! Thanks Max a Million!!!"

"After six months on the market with another realtor I engaged Auslander Kasindorf Group and my condo sold in and a half weeks! They were highly recommended to me by a friend who had a similar experience. They work very hard and I don't think I could have had a better experience."
Fran L., Stamford
"Todd and Jeannie did a wonderful job on the sale of my home. They staged the house perfectly and held regular open houses that created a lot of interest. Mostly they were sensitive to the feedback and l made the necessary changes to sell the house. I got the full asking price and everything went incredibly smooth from offer to closing. I would recommend them to any prospective seller."
David P., Norwalk
"Jeannie and Todd helped me on two different occasions, one with the rental of my house a few years ago and recently they helped me with the sale of the same property. Needless to say, I have had a great experience working with them as they are reliable, trustworthy and very professional. They were always staying in touch with me and kept me updated on the progress of the sale of the house."
Shirley M., Stamford
"My decision to sell my home was not during an advantageous time because we were in the middle of the summer and most buyers had already purchased their homes earlier in the spring. Luckily for me, Jeannie Kasindorf contacted me when I had tried to sell my home four years ago. Jeannie had always kept in contact with me to see how things were going and if I had ever needed any real estate advice. What a lucky day for me on that day in July that I signed a listing contract with two fantastic realtors, plus people that I grew to respect and love. Surprisingly, the house was sold on the first day. Unfortunately the buyer was very difficult to deal with and was very unreasonable. Todd recognized this from the beginning and kept another buyer warm because he had strong misgivings about his ability to perform. When the deal did fall apart, the 2nd buyer responded immediately and I was able to get a stronger offer from them. They were the perfect buyers. I have since moved to a senior facility and Jeannie and Todd came to visit me shortly after I moved in to play Bingo with me. I think that says it all about how they treat and feel about their clients. They took care of me from the time I signed the listing contract to the time of the closing and beyond. I have nothing but praise for their professionalism and most importantly for their character as people."
Blossom K., Stamford
"As first-time home buyers, my wife and I had a wonderful experience working with Max Dober of the Auslander Kasindorf Group. He was very friendly and professional, and helped to guide us through the entire process every step of the way without ever making us feel pressured to step outside of our comfort zone. I would credit Max's knowledge of the market/area and his ability to listen and contemplate our (admittedly extensive) list of wants & needs as two of the primary reasons why we were able to find our new home. In fact, though we saw about a dozen homes in all, the that house we ended up purchasing was the very first house that Max picked out for us after our initial meeting with him; to an extent, it was as though he knew us better than we knew ourselves. In summary, I would highly recommend Max to anyone who is looking for a new home in the area-- you will not be disappointed."
Sarah & Andy S., Stamford
"The Auslander Kasindorf Group was perfect for my needs. They are so completely knowledgeable about their industry. They responded to my changing needs with understanding and patience, and kept me informed on all the issues in a timely manner. Also, I would describe their negotiating skills as top-notch. One good thing about working with a team is that one of them is always available."
Karen F., Stamford
"The entire staff was helpful, but special kudos to Max who gave excellent help and advice in finding my new home. He also guided me around the neighborhood."
Judith D., Stamford
"Received 3 offers our first week. Todd and Jeannie are great. They are extremely helpful and informative and supporting. I would strongly recommend them to friends and family members."
Peter G., Stamford
"During our home buying experience, we had the pleasure of meeting Todd Auslander at an open house for a short sale. Todd was very helpful in explaining the short saleand general home buying process. He was insightful and made my husband and I very comfortable, so we agreed to meet with one of the group's buying agents, Max Dober. We are very glad that we did, as Max was fantastic from day one. When we met with him the first time, I had a laundry list of detailed questions for Max, which he handled with ease. He did not pressure us at any point, but was always diligent to respond to our questions/inquiries. He also made himself available super early in the am and very late at night as well. It's very obviously that Max loves his job, because he is always in good spirits and seemed to know the ins and outs of almost every listing we found (out of hundreds) over a period of a few months. I honestly don't know what more Max could have done for us, he went above and beyond. As a sidenote - we met Jeannie Kasindorf during the inspection process, and she was also fantastic. She knew exactly what to look for, and even had great visions for how we could improve on the house once we moved in. She even gave us barstools that she had in her own home that she thought would be great in our house! I can't recommend Max and the Auslander Kasindorf group highly enough."
Katie & Geoff E., Stamford
"The Auslander Kasindorf Group has worked with us for more than a year (we mostly dealt with Jeannie) and helped us find our dream home. We found Todd and Jeannie to be extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and very pleasant to deal with. We would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell their home."
Samira and Steve S., Stamford
"My husband and I worked with Max Dober @Auslander Kasindorf Group, it was a wonderful experience for a "first time home-buyer". Max was patient, always available to us when needed, and truly educated us on the process. Though I know we gave him a challenge, there was always an open flow of communication, honesty, and humor... when necessary. A member of Max's team was always able to fill in the blanks, and truly made this an easy process. We found an amazing home and we honestly couldn't recommend a better group of people to work with. I'm grateful because I feel like they went above and beyond for us, but I now know this is what they do for all their clients."
Jinelle & Dan W., Norwalk
"The team at Auslander Kasindorf came in with complete knowledge of the area and insight on how to package and price our home to sell. We got the price we wanted within just a few days of being listed. They made a complicated process easy and efficient."
Alexis and Dominic, Stamford
“My fiancé and I just closed on a house at the end of July and could not be happier. As first time home buyers, we were a little clueless about the process and we were so lucky to have Max as our agent. Max was extremely patient with us, took time to explain everything in detail, and answered every question we had along the way. Not only is he a genuinely nice guy and a pleasure to work with, but he was also honest and very knowledgeable about the market. He was always able to work around our schedules and made us feel like we were his only clients even though we were not. Never once did Max try to pressure us into buying a house or sway our decision. It is easy to tell that Max truly cares about his clients and wants them to be happy with whatever their decision may be. He was quick to respond to our calls or emails no matter what time, and helped us through every step of the process. It was so great to have somebody in our corner who knew exactly what we were looking for, was always on top of things, and did an excellent job negotiating for us. In the end, we got the house we were looking for, the neighborhood we wanted, and the price we wanted. We can't recommend Max enough and are so glad we gave him a call after reading the great reviews about him. We are so happy and excited about our new home, thank you Max!!”
Shane and Julia M., Stamford
"Jeannie and Todd were great to work with! They said they sold houses and they did. Much much much better experience with Keller Williams than I had with William Ravies when I tried to sell it the year before. They managed the process right through close, gave me good recommendations on attorneys, returned my calls within minutes. They did what they needed to do to get the deal done. In my case they brought the buyer as well. Jeannie also called me once a year for maybe 4 or 5 years. I was loyal to William Ravies, but once that went sideways, I went with Jeannie. I regret not giving herthe listing earlier. Thanks guys! Happy to not be a landlord any longer!"
Shane C., Stamford
“We connected with KW GROUP AUSLANDER KASINDORF back in March 2015 after meeting the team at an open house. We were looking for a real estate agent who would be efficient, knowledgeable and detail oriented. We have been introduced to Max who is the lead buyer agent. As a first time home buyer, I needed someone who would guide me and who I can trust. We have been very impressed by Max ‘s skills. Max is friendly, reliable and very knowledgeable. We knew what was happening every step of the way with our transaction. We highly recommend the team at KW GROUP AUSLANDER KASINDORF. If you are looking for a home to purchase or sell, do yourself a big favor and call them.”
Jesse and Loic C., Stamford
"Max was a pleasure to work with. We were very lucky to have him as our realtor during the buying process. He walked us through the market, positives and negatives of particular locations and houses, and really helped us find the home of our dreams. We highly recommend Max as he's incredibly responsive (via phone, email and text), personable, and trustworthy."
Sean and Melyssa M., Stamford
"Jeremy and I worked directly with Max Dober on the purchase of our first home in Stamford. Since we were first time home buyers, Max spent a great deal of time walking us through the process and helping us figure out our 'must haves' and 'wants.' We ended up making an offer and purchasing one of the first homes we went to see so we didn't spend a lot of time house hunting, but Max was extremely helpful with negotiations and even going to the house a few times without us when we needed estimates done on chimney repair when an issue came up with the inspection. On closing day (in June) we found out that the Air Conditioning had broken earlier in the week, but decided to close anyways (leaving money in escrow for repairs). Max consistently followed up after the closing to make sure things were progressing, checking in at least one or two times a week. We highly recommend Max as a buyer agent, especially for first time home buyers who may need a little more hand holding while understanding the process. He was great to work with!"
Toni C. and Jeremy P., Stamford
"Our relationship with Jeannie and Todd started two years ago, when they sold our neighbor's house within one week. We asked them to do an exclusive showing for one day, "to test the waters." We decided that we were not ready to sell, but asked Jeannie to stay in touch. She did. When we wanted to sell this year, we interviewed three potential broker teams. Todd and Jeannie's professional--yet not pushy--presentation convinced us that they had the right persistence and personalities and experience to sell our house. We were right. They understood that giving up our family home after 25 years was emotionally hard. As other brokers had, they didn't criticize everything about our classic 1928 home. They appreciated its character and the investment we had in it. Within less than one week, Todd called us with an offer. He helped negotiate us to a very reasonable price. And we closed within two months. They knew what they were doing and made us feel comfortable with their advice during the process."
Michael H., Stamford
"Max Dober is professional from start to finish. As first time homeowners, we weren't sure what to expect or where to start. Max really took the time to walk us through the process, was extremely patient and considerate of our requests. It was great to have him on our side! He was a pleasure to work with and was always available, day or night, to answer any and all questions or concerns. Max is very knowledgeable about the area and housing market. His dedication to us finding our first home was truly appreciated. We highly recommend Max!"
Amy and Joe C., Norwalk
"Worked with Todd and Jeannie on the sale of our house. They came highly recommended from a couple of colleagues. They were great to work with and successfully sold our house in a very short time. They complement one another with their specialties and techniques. They were able to generate plenty of interest in the house with their resources (supporting team members, IT resources, open houses, etc) and we received an offer within 2 days of listing. They provided great insight into the steps for preparing a house for sale and also the logistics. They kept us informed throughout the process and we were very pleased with the results."
Matthew F., Stamford
"Professionalism, this simple word will define Max's work at Auslander Kasindorf Group. Max was with us all the time making things easy during this scary/enthusiastic process of being a homeowner. He points out defects and virtues of all properties that we visited, and he brought that point of sanity when needed. I would strongly recommend Max Dober from Auslander Kasindorf Group to anybody that is looking for buying a property."
Marco and Amie F., Stamford
"Max was extremely helpful in communicating and negotiating with our new landlords. He was also very flexible in his time for viewing potential places. We will be using his services in the future if need be."
Naomi W., Stamford
"Don't look any further - this is the team you want on your side. Max was highly recommended by one of our colleagues and didn't disappoint. Shortly after contacting Max, my roommate and I moved into the perfect place in Downtown Stamford. Max is a true professional, who maintains clear lines of communication and is a true pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Max and the Auslander Kasindorf Group for any real estate needs in the Stamford/Norwalk area."
Abe J., Stamford
"Everyone at Auslander Kasindorf was extremely helpful and supportive through our home buying experience. As first-time home buyers, my fiancee and I were very nervous about being so unfamiliar with the process. However, Todd, Jeannie, and Max were great guides and we are thrilled with our new home. Not only did we get a great deal, the folks at Auslander Kasindorf acted as a team the whole time - they made themselves available on our schedule to ensure that there were no delays or hiccups in the process. They strategized with us and consulted each other - which really helped us feel as though there were many people looking our for our best interest. While there may be many great realty companies in the Fairfield County area, I would never consider taking my business elsewhere."
Kate G., Stamford
"Todd is an amazingly professional and knowledgeable agent, and working with him was wonderful. He and his partner came by my condo and told me a range of prices I could expect to sell my condo for. We ended up selling at the top end of the range, with the condo having been shown for less than 2 weeks!! Todd made the entire process seamless: he pays great attention to customer service and customer satisfaction. I think his firm is the best group in Stamford by a long shot--and I interviewed multiple agents before selecting Todd's company. I am very pleased with my choice--I will be using them again, and would highly recommend their firm to anyone buying or selling in the Stamford area."
Rasheed S., Stamford
"Max was great! This was our first time going through the home buying process so we had no idea what to expect going in. It only took a few weeks and Max found us the perfect house right in the part of town we wanted to be in. He walked us through each step of the process so that we are able to close quickly and without any issues. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone else looking to buy a house. "
Joseph L., Stamford
"Max and the Auslander Kasindorf Group were amazing for the purchase of our first home.Max was able to find us a house within weeks of first meeting with him and really took into consideration our wish list and our collective taste while staying within our comfort zone for location and price point. Through the process, Max was extremely patient and we felt that he went above and beyond what we would have expected. From helping us understand the process to being there every step of the way, he was always professional, prompt and most importantly very honest in answering every question or concern we may have had. Overall, Max and the team were amazing to work with on our first purchase and we couldn't have been more satisfied."
Miin C., Stamford
"Jeannie and Todd are a fantastic team who work fast and effectively. They're straightforward, honest and always available. Our home sale went quickly and smoothly, largely due to their efforts. We're very happy to have chosen them!"
Wendy B., Stamford
"Todd and Jeannie were really amazing to work with in both selling our home and buying our new home. We attempted to sell our home in 2014 through another realtor, with little success. We then reached out to Todd and Jeannie to work with them on selling our home. They both came in and gave us the hard facts about decluttering and presenting our home in the best possible manner. While this was a bit painful and hard to swallow, we listened and made some significant changes to the look of our home. Within a few weeks of putting our house on the market, we received our first offer which we negotiated into a sale. Todd and Jeannie were always available for a quick call and provided speedy updates to us. Along with selling our home, they also helped us negotiate the purchase of our current home. This actually became a bit stressful because there was a counter offer, but they both worked with the sellers to present us as the most suitable buyer. We are now living in our home and extremely happy with our purchase!"
Joe P., Stamford
"I strongly recommend the Auslander Kasindorf Group. They are great realtors, warm, intelligent and will fight for you. We actually switched our realtor after having met them. Our path to close on our home wasn't smooth, but they were there and worked closely with our lenders and attorneys to try and make things as smooth as possible. Highly recommend!"
Ned J., Stamford
"Todd and Jeannie are a wonderful team… They have a thorough knowledge of the market and great availability for their clients… Their ability to stage, price and market a home is exceptional… Their ability to listen to the client's needs, and then find the client the home that meets those needs is terrific… They showed me the house I bought on the first day of our search! They are true professionals!!!"
Marsha M., Stamford
"We spent some time house hunting with Todd last spring, but then decided instead to renovate. Todd never pressured us to continue looking. Instead, it was as if he knew we'd be back. And we were, just prior to starting construction, we found the perfect, move-in ready home in late September. Within two days of seeing the new house with Todd, our offer was accepted. And now we had a house to sell. In what is usually considered a slow time for real estate, we were able to get our house ready to sell (with Ginny's expert staging advice & beautiful photos) and on the market. It was listed on a Wednesday and had 8 offers by Sunday! We moved into our new home in early December and closed on our old house just before the holidays. Moving will always be stressful, but if we ever need to do it again, we will absolutely call on Ginny and Todd. They were able to take a daunting and overwhelming process and keep it calm and relatively stress-free."
Sarah G., Stamford
"It was a joy to work with Jeannie and Todd. I went to contract 2 weeks after my house went on the market. They kept me informed every step of the way and put me in contact with everyone I needed to work with to complete the sale. I highly recommend them."
Eileen R., Stamford
"I turned to Jeannie and Todd after my condo unit had been on the market for six months with another broker with no offers. They came in and helped me stage my unit, brought in an excellent photographer and held more open houses in one month than the previous broker had in six months (one of which resulted in the eventual sale less than two months later.) The offer came in while I was in Sri Lanka! and Jeannie conducted the negotiations, suggested excellent (and well-priced) contractors, supervised the work, and dealt with a condo board gone crazy, all while I was out of the country. Throughout, she and Todd were cheerful, supportive and supercompetent. I cannot think of any way in which they could have been more helpful. I recommend them without qualification."
Susan R., Stamford
"We have worked with Auslander Kasindorf at both the seller and buyer ends. They were very professional, and I can't stress enough how helpful Jeannie was with prepping our house for sale, and how well she listened to our needs at the buyers' end. We were very pleased with our experience."
Patrick M., Stamford
“Max was the buyer's agent on our recent (first) home purchase, and it was a delight to work with him! He was knowledgeable and completely on top of the various, dizzying steps of the process. He also made our priorities his own. Though it's not the case, Max treated us as if we were his only clients. He went above and beyond -- always making himself available to provide prompt answers to our questions and working to make the process seamless for us. And bonus -- he's a truly nice guy! Also, in the course of our house hunt, we met both Todd and Jeannie, whom seem like experts genuinely interested in their clients' needs. Can't recommend AKG enough!”
Kara B., Westport
“Jeannie and Todd recently helped us sell our house. Through every step of the process, both Jeannie and Todd were attentive. They gave us sound advice, were always available, and were professional and caring. They guided us in preparing our house to sell and went above and beyond in helping us get things fixed after we had moved out of town. I would highly recommend the Auslander Kasindorf Group to anyone looking to buy/sell their home.”
Judy S., Stamford
"We used Max as our buyer's agent, and he was incredible on all levels. He's so much more than just the guy who shows us homes. He gave us great advice for negotiating and we won the bidding war on a home that was listed for about 2 minutes. If it wasn't for Max, we probably would have missed it completely. His knowledge, patience, friendliness, and immediate follow-ups made the whole purchase process glitch- and bumpy-free. He was able to answer any question we threw at him (which were a lot), and if he didn't, he knew who could. It was SUCH a pleasure working with him, that I'm almost sad the process is over!! I highly recommend the Auslander Kasindorf Group to anyone buying or selling in the area, and I especially recommend hiring Max as a buyer's agent. We could not have done it without him."
Andrea P., Stamford
"Our home sold in the dead of winter! Thanks to Jeannie, Todd and a spectacular team. We had multiple pets and crazy schedules to juggle. Everyone worked with us to make it all happen as quickly as possible."
Mary & David G., Stamford
"We could not recommend Todd Auslander and Jeannie Kasindorf more!They are knowledgeable, easy to work with, professional, and patient. Their understanding of the market and how to stage and sell a house is remarkable. We feel exceptionally lucky to be working with them. Our house sold in 3 1/2 weeks in the middle of January!"
Don & Yvette W., Stamford
"We are so grateful to Jeannie and Todd for all of the work they did in helping us find a home! They were patient during our long search and always right on top of potential properties that met our criteria! And when we found the one, they helped to negotiate a great deal. We definitely recommend this team for your home search!”
Max & Colleen S., Stamford
"I had a wonderful experience with the Auslander Kasindorf Group! I needed to find an apartment very quickly in Stamford and they were so knowledgeable, efficient, and helpful. I was able to find a beautiful apartment in less than two days thanks to the Auslander Kasindorf Group. Even after moving in they followed up with me and made sure everything went well with my move. I am so thankful I had the Auslander Kasindorf Group to help me find my new home."
Emily G., Stamford
"Jeannie helped us purchase our first home in Norwalk, CT. Simply put, Jeannie and her team are amazing. Her goal wasn’t just to sell us a house but to make sure we found the perfect house for us. She wasn’t afraid to point out issues with houses and tell us that they weren’t right for us. She was always on the look out for houses that would suit our needs and was in constant contact with us about potential homes. When she found us the one that was perfect for us, she made sure that she got us the best deal possible. She truly advocated for us during all of the negotiations. Throughout the whole process, from looking at houses to closing, she made sure that we understood what to expect from each step."
Anthony & Allison P., Norwalk
"Jeannie Kasindorf was an extremely skilled and helpful agent, she knew the landscape of the area likethe back of her hand, was very on top of new properties coming on to the market, and was an experienced and knowledgeable negotiator in the purchasing of my home. She has a wide network of resources at her disposal (lawyers, banks, etc.) that seems well built from years of practice in the industry. Her reputation was applauded at each step in the process from her colleagues and competitors. I would highly recommend her to any person looking into real estate in the Stamford/Fairfield County area."
Peter C., Stamford
“Todd and Jeannie are a fantastic dynamic team who truly care about their clients. My husband and I had a unique situation and had the pleasure of getting to know Todd and Jeannie through the sale of our condo and purchase of our new home. They came highly recommended to us through a colleague of mine and we are glad that we listened to their recommendation. Although we technically were not first-time home buyers, it sure felt like it! We put our complete trust in Jeannie and Todd to sell our condo and sure enough, they delivered. They know the market like the back of their hands and know what it takes to sell a property quickly. They were honest and upfront, even if they had to deliver a message we didn’t want to hear. In the end, they were able to help us sell our condo and came in exactly where we needed to be! When it came time to buy our home, Todd and Jeannie went out of their way, taking us all over Fairfield County, teaching us the ins and outs of home buying and what it takes to be an educated buyer. Their responsiveness, knowledge and professionalism are unparalleled… all while being great people! We would highly recommend Todd and Jeannie to our family and friends.”
Carmina and Anthony M., Fairfield
"I have used Jeannie both to sell and buy a house. As a sales broker she is energetic, resolute, and highly communicative. She updated me on foot traffic and potential purchasers. I never felt that my property was being sidelined and was confident that she would be able to find a purchaser at the price at which I was prepared to sell. As a buying agent she was very helpful at guiding us through the process and has an excellent network of lenders, attorneys and inspectors who she has worked with. It was a pleasure to work with her."
James B., Stamford
“Todd and Jeannie helped my wife and I sell our previous home and buy our new property in North Stamford. They were very attentive to our needs during the entire process and we were extremely happy with both the sale and purchase. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!”
Sean and Allison A., Stamford
"There are many reasons why Todd and Jeannie are some of the most successful agents in Fairfield County. I've bought and sold multiple properties across different areas using other agents so I have a good point of comparison on what types of agents are out there. And hands down, they are the best real estate team you can possibly find.
About 10 years ago right after getting married, my wife and I worked with Todd to buy our first home. As you can imagine, we were very nervous given how we had never bought a home before, but Todd helped make the process as pain free as can be for a variety of reasons. First of all, he has a wonderful no-pressure way about working with his clients. He listens to what your needs and wishes are and helps you realize them. Along the way he provides service that is second to none. He took the time to educate us on the process and answer any and all questions. During that process he was very upfront, honest and delivered that honesty - even when it's news you don't want to hear - in a way that you can understand. And if at any time you tend not to take that advice and choose a different direction, he has a "client is always right" mentality and does his best to try to help you execute on what you're trying to do. He'll be patient, take the time to talk things through with you and listens to your point of view.
And for as down to Earth and friendly a partner Todd is, once it comes to negotiating your deal he is a very skilled and tenacious negotiator to help you get the best deal possible for your home. We got the home we wanted at below listing price with terms that helped.
Whenever we needed to reach Todd - at any time - he was there for us. If we ever missed him, he returned our messages with a diligence that is second to none. During the very anxious process of buying a home this is a commitment that goes a LONG way to helping you get through things. Todd always got back to us same day.
We ended up staying in that home for nine years. During that time Todd stayed in touch as a true and genuine friend, always there to help with advice on the home or sharing his contacts/recommendations on service pros to take care of our home needs. And so it goes without saying, once our family grew and we needed a new home we called Todd, who helped us with advice on the right move.
It was at this time we also met Jeannie, who joined forces with Todd since we originally worked with him on our first home. For as great as Todd is, getting the chance to work with both he AND Jeannie gets you two all-stars for the price of one. While Jeannie shares Todd's knowledge, skill, experience, diligent accessibility and friendly "no pressure" attitude, she adds her own personal touches that just enhance the experience and complement Todd perfectly.
Once we decided to sell our home we wanted to move it quickly and Jeannie's talent in staging a home was invaluable. From the time we gave the green light to put the home on the market, she helped us get it ready literally in one weekend. She really went above and beyond, spending hours personally helping us clean up our house! She even got a friend to come over and help me move some heavy stuff around plus let us use her Shop-Vac since we didn't have one.
All this help allowed us to get our house on the market in a little more than a week from when we decided to sell. And within four days we had THREE offers, two of which were ABOVE our listing price. As you could imagine, we were ecstatic, yet nervous since we needed to sell our home before being able to buy a new one based on the mortgage requirements. There was a possibility that we would have to live in a rental if we didn't find a home we loved to buy. But in the end, Todd and Jeannie helped us get a dream home we had found weeks earlier. At the time, it was above our price range, but ended up dropping by almost 10% from the original list price into a range we could afford. So when all was said and done we were able to close the same day on both the sale of our current home and the purchase of our new home, allowing us to move right in and avoid any need for a rental.
Plain and simple, you cannot find a better real estate team for buying and selling a home in Fairfeld County than Todd and Jeannie (or better people). I even recommended them to a friend who has used them twice and had just as great experience as I did. I can't say enough about them!"
D. Devito, Stamford
"Max was extremely helpful. Was honest about everything and also kept my best interest in mind at all times. He was available at all times when I had any questions or concerns throughout the process of finding a new home. Thanks for your work."
Bruno C., Stamford
“My mother was moving from CT to out of stateand I needed to coordinate this for her from FL. Todd and Jeannie were fantastic to work with and took care of every detail. They kept both my mother and I updated at every step of the process and worked with the parameters we requested. Jeannie and the whole team went above and beyond the call of duty on several occasions. I couldn't have wished for a better team to work with or experience. Do yourself a favor and contact the Auslander Kasindorf Group if you're selling a home.”
Dana D., Stamford
“Todd and Jeannie helped us every step of the way in finding our perfect home. They listened to our needs and wants when looking at properties and guided us through all the necessary steps from the inspection to the closing date. We highly recommend them for your house hunting search.”
Anna S. and Bosco C., Norwalk
“Jeannie did a great job finding us our new home. We absolutely love our place and very happy with the purchase. I highly recommend the Auslander Kasindorf Group to anyone in the Stamford area are looking to buy a new house or condo. One thing that definitely helps is when you visit different houses or open houses be very clear and honest about what you like and do not like about it. Jeannie takes the time to understand what her clients are looking for. Have a clear budget in mind and discuss with your realtor if and when you are willing to exceed the budget. Good luck.”
Sumita G., Stamford
“Todd and his colleagues were wonderful to work with. They helped me find a tenant for my apartment in less than a month. They made things simple and easy, so that it's clear what my best options are.”
“We had the best experience with them - we were selling and buying at the same time - not an easy task in this market, however Todd and Jeannie made it so easy. We put our condo on the market right before we went on a 2-week vacation and by the time we were back we had an offer on the table. And then they helped us to find our new home and managed to negotiate the price down to what we wanted to pay for it.”
Roza P., Stamford
“My husband and I hired Jeannie Kasindorf to list our home for sale in Stamford. She evaluated and priced our home accurately, as reflected by the relatively short period of time it was on the market. She marketed and sold the home quickly and without any hassles. She staged the home perfectly, and helped make it look fabulous for buyers. All her advice was spot on! I am confident in recommending Jeannie, and have done so numerous times. I have referred several friends to Jeannie, three of whom used her to sell their homes and all were thrilled with her results and happy to have worked with her. You may know other real estate agents, but Jeannie is a true professional who knows her market and gets results.”

“Todd and Jeannie are the perfect team, together they marketed and sold our home in record time. Their guidance on de-cluttering and staging was spot on. Their follow through from offer to closing was invaluable. I would highly recommend the Auslander Kasindorf Group to any one selling their home.”
Stephen and Veronica P., Stamford
“Jeannie and Todd took good care of me from deciding to sell my home through until I was settled into a perfect new home, including a housewarming gift. They worked tirelessly staging and marketing my house, always worked in my best interests and kept me informed about what to expect and how the whole process would play out. They made sure I had full information for my decisions but didn't pressure me. It was important to them that I was happy with my choices - up to and including advising me to take my time and not rush into something not quite right. They are a great team and total professionals. I highly recommend both Jeannie and Todd.”
Kate S., Stamford
“When it comes to selling houses, Todd & Jeannie excel at it! In a few words, they are: smart, savvy, trustworthy, ethical, professional, honest and hardworking...oh, and they're actually really nice people, too. They know their marketplace, they do their homework and they provide advice and suggestions based on solid experience and understanding. Every step of the way I felt like they were our advocates - they were looking out for our best interests and managing the process to take much of the burden off our shoulders. In the end our buyer was represented by another agent in the Stamford KW office, and I never felt this compromised the level of service or trust we had with Jeannie and Todd. Jeannie did a lot of the upfront/staging with us and Todd was more involved later through the showings and negotiations. Seamless communication - they are a true team. Together they are 1 + 1 = 3. If you're planning on selling your home in Stamford, I honestly cannot think of a reason why you wouldn't want to choose them.”
Deborah K., Stamford
"We had difficult buyers and we owned the condo with my daughter, so there was a lot of work calling everyone and keeping us informed and helping us understand the buyers, the buyer’s broker and their lawyer and their concern. We couldn't have picked better agents.”
Vincent and Fran L., Stamford
“Jeannie and Todd were always available. We almost simultaneously sold our house and bought a condominium with their guidance. They were professional and explained all aspects of both the sale and purchase as we went along. They did a great job!”
Gerry and Fran G., Stamford
"Jeannie and Todd are a wonderful team. I sold one house with them in 2013 and one in 2014., in a market that could best be described as tepid. Jeannie is a master at presenting homes in their finest light and has a sharp eye for detail. Both Jeannie and Todd are attuned to the state of the local market and trends, and provide detailed information on comparable homes, thus providing confidence that a home is properly priced for sale. Additionally, Jeannie and Todd are accomplished negotiators, and successfully navigated two complex closings for me. Together, they make a formidable team and I'm looking forward to working with them again, this time on the buy side."
Michael R., Stamford

"I recently purchased my first condo in Stamford, CT. Though I was new to the home-buying process, I did my due diligence, and I am also familiar with the area. Initially, I did not have, nor did I want a buyer's agent, because I found them to be a little pushy and over-eager... then I met Max. Max showed me a property and was great, but I was not ready to sign with an agent - I wanted to see more properties on my own. He told me that he would be there if I needed him, so let him know. About a month passed - during that month, I saw places on my own, had Max show me a few places and still did not have a buyer's agent. Even though I didn't sign with Max (yet), he still took time to send me and show me properties that he thought I would like. I appreciated the fact that he was still willing to help me with my search, even though I had not signed any type of agreement with him. His hardworking mentality and dedication drove me to ask him to be my buyer's agent. Once we found a place that I liked, Max worked with me to negotiate a great price. After the prices were negotiated, he was my main point of contact throughout the process - he was extremely responsive, answering my texts or calls as late as midnight sometimes, just to put me at ease. I am the type of person who has many questions and wants them answered quickly; Max is the type of person who, though young in his career, has many answers and the drive to figure out those answers should he not know it. Max did not stop working until after he handed me the keys to my place. He literally hand held me through the entire process and made sure I had everything that I needed. He even helped me clean out some remnants that the previous owner had left behind, once I got my keys and found the place wasn't entirely empty. Not often do I laud people in online reviews, but when that person goes above and beyond and meets each one of my expectations, I find that I want to return the favor in any way I can. I highly recommend Max to represent my family, friends, and anyone looking to purchase a home. Not only is he great at what he does, but he is also just a nice guy."

"My experience with real estate agents had truly hit the bottom before the powers that introduced me to Todd Auslander. He became not only my personal muse, guiding me through the complexities of selling my property but also a dear friend. His honesty and integrity is to say the least impressive. His sold my property in record time, advising me at every turn of the road....and now that I have moved to Florida, he is still advising me as to who to trust and what to do next when purchasing my next property. My appreciation for his guidance is heartwarming since he has given me back that most precious of all gifts.....one of trust. Rest assured you are in safe hands with him."
Barbara P., Stamford
"I interviewed four different realtors and chose Auslander Kasindorf Group because of their professionalism, integrity, and incredible knowledge of the Stamford condo market. Their market analysis and presentation was top-notch as was their handling of all aspects of the sale. Jeannie and Todd (and their support staff) were incredibly responsive and a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end including accommodating my busy schedule and various needs along the way. I highly recommend them without reservation."
Rita W., Stamford
“We worked with Max Dober from Auslander Kasindorf Group.We happened to meet him at an open house we were attending on our own and knew right away we wanted to work with him. He was personable right from the start, not pushy at all and very knowledgeable in our target search area of North Stamford and Greenwich CT. We worked closely with Max for several months, he worked tirelessly to get to know us as well as what we were looking for in a house. In the end, we found exactly what we were looking for in Greenwich and he was integral in the negotiation process as well as the closing. I would highly recommend working with Max, you won't be disappointed!”
