In the fall of last year, I amde a decision to downsize since my family was off on their own and the house as too big for just one person.  I began a journey looking for a smaller place to live but it had to be close to my childre.  I met Gina at a complex where my mother had lived upon pressure from m daughter.  Gina showe me a unit that I fels was too like my moms.  She promised to keep in touch if something else came up.

In early November a unit was about to go on the market and I was able to see it and loved it.  I closed on the unit in late December and during that time my house went on the market and Gina had it sold within two weeks.

I have been very impressed in her professionalism and true intrest in knowing what my desires were in relocating after 20 years in my home.  I also admire the office staff that was quick to act when a question needed to be answered.

As a business owner and salesperson I realize the importance of keeping a good relationship with your customer as if they are happy with you they will recommend you to others.

Lastley, Gina shows ethics that is not seen in many today.  I have already given her name to a neighbor who is thinking of moving this year.

Thanks Gina, it has been great working with you!

 Dear Gina,

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the help and support you gave us in selling our home and all things you did to make the process go as smooth as possible. When we first contacted you, you gave us many suggestions and helpful hints to make our home show better, like getting rid of my favorite recliner, which will take a while before I forgive you. All kidding aside, we really felt that we had a good friend who has happened to be a really good real estate agent.

Thank you again for everything you have done.

Yours truly,

John & Joanne Urso - St. James

 Dear Gina,

We, Jose & Nelsy Ortiz, doing business in real estate since 1980 in Queens & Long Island want to state that in all those years of dealing with different real estate companies to rent out our apartments & manage our properties, and now working with American Real Estate in one of our properties on Long Island, can affirm that no other company ever offered us as good services as they do.  They know the whole process & deal with any problem that may arise.  Octavio & Gina, owners of this company, offer us a very personal & familiar treatment.  They're clear & simple, easy to understand & have done a GREAT performance on the management of this property.  From simple things to complicated ones, they go beyond the limits to satisfy us & the tenants as well.  They even collect the rents from the tenants & pass it to our accounts in 1 or 2 days.  Even in our frequent trips to Europe, they take care of our properties like if they were their own property.  No other company that I dealt with in the past ever did half of what these people & anyone in their office does.  Denise, Carol, Sarah & all the others, for a small portion of the rent, you get their services and are always there for you.  They screen your tenants from the beginning & they're never in a hurry.  Just to collect these services, these people do every step of the way to make things work great.  Whenever we need any repairs or improvements to our property they patiently look for different contractors to work estimates on your behalf.  Octavio, a knowledgeable construction builder & Gina a dynamic business woman, are hard to beat by anyone in their field, advertise properly & act fast.  These people are so good, that my heart reach out to them.  I would love to do business with them forever.  Their honesty & great values are put into their business & that can't be easily matched by anyone else.  Believe me, I'm not joking, I'm for real.


 Jose & Nelsy Ortiz 

Thank you so much for offering to remove the wood from the garage rafters at 139 Strathmore Gate Drive.  You did it so quickly and efficiently and it was such a great help to me.  I'm sure the new owner is very appreciative also.

 Gina, we are so happy in our new home.  Thanks for all that you did for us.  Also, thank you so much for the awesome cookies!  They were so delicious, and came in very handy the first couple of days because we had so many family members stopping by.  All I had to do was put up a a pot of coffee and I had stuff to serve!  Unfortunately, I'm now addicted.

I'm sorry I haven't been in touch sooner, I have been thinking of you.  My last day of work is tomorrow and I'll be spending my summer doing you know what - gardening!

Thank you again for everything that you did to help us make our dreams come true.



Our experience with American Real Estate was just absolutely amazing!!  Gina is an expert in her field.  Not only is she OUTSTANDING!! but a real kind person.  The whole office and Octavius (her husband) were just amazing and great.  They helped us with professionalism and knowledge and in 2 days - Everything went smooth and she always had time right away to call back and took care of everything.  They are the best realtors and broker on the planet.  I recommend them to anyone and all.  "Gina Amen" is now a friend and very special.  She is just amazing to work with.  Also very kind and thoughtful with grace.  They are very, very special and the Best You Will Ever Deal With.

Our situation was an emergency and it took her 2 days to place my family in a nice place to live.  Her knowledge is SUPERB!! and not only did she wait for her money and bring us flowers for Easter, you'll never find a women with this expertise and kindness in the real estate business.  Her husband is also very Brilliant and Kind.  This is the most REMARKABLE OFFICE and they know what they are doing besides.

We love that whole office-Can't say enough about them-Words are not enough. Gina and Octavius Amen THANK YOU!!!  American Real Estate Associates the Best!!

Sincerely & Fondly

Necci Family

 Dear Gina

Dear Wafa,

Thank you Wafa for all your wonderful work with helping us find a new home. Throughout this journey which lasted 3 months, you helped us get through the process as smoothly as possible. We know it wasn’t a easy job, because of our restricted area for the kids schools, but you showed us that you cared a lot about our family as our agent and even more so as the friend that you have become to us. We are very happy in our new home and we look forward to working with you in the future as we trust your expertise , and definitely we will recommend you to all those looking for a new home.

The Elhalawani Family


Once again I thank you and Doug for how diligently and professionally you have handled yourself and carried out all the open houses and showings and have arranged this rental for me.  I commend the efforts that you and Doug showed us during the past 8 months.  I am looking forward to meeting with you and doug when I am in NY next.

Happy Thanking, God Bless You.

Gina Amen of American Real Estate has been my broker for approximately fifteen years. I have found her to be a very knowledgeable, courteous, patient, and a very talented people person. She has sold, rented and managed properties for me. On all occasions I have been completely satisfied with her ability to understand my needs, and those of the other parties. If any problems arise she takes care of them with the utmost of urgency. I would highly recommend her as a dedicated, helpful, and a person who is very concerned about her clients

After almost 6 years of listing our home with little or no success, my wife and I were recommended to contact Gina Amen of American Realty of St. James. I was particularly skeptical of all realtors at this point and truly did not believe our house was going to be sold in this marketplace. Gina came to our home and said there was no reason why such a lovely home has gone unsold for such a long time. I believe because of my clearly negative outlook, Gina took this on as a challenge. Her pet phrase to me was "I am confidant I will make you smile in due time." She and her employees conducted several open houses and in a matter of a few months she had a buyer. With very little hassle and negotiation we went into contract and closed a few weeks later. Then she expedited the purchase of our new condo in Ridge. Gina goes above and beyond what most realtors do. She is a true professional in every sense of the word as is her husband with whom she shares the business and her entire staff. We still maintain a relationship with Gina not only in business but we consider her a good friend and have recommended her unequivocally to our friends and family. Gina certainly put a smile on my face!

Gina worked with us as if we were family. She was there to find us our first home, then when it was time sell it and purchase a new one. She knows the Long Island area and beyond. Her expertise proved itself when we had multiple offers when selling our house in just 2 weeks. She was able to read us as clients and find many options for us to look at, all that were realistic, and boy did we look at a lot. Never once did she say no, always called us back, emailed or communicated via text. Everyone at American Realestate was great. 

She had us prepared at every turn all throughout the process. Gina has your intentions in mind and really gets to know you to help you make dreams come true when finding a new home. I will never use a different realtor as long as I am on Long Island. I would recommend her to anyone.

Gina Amen is a true professional in the real estate business. She is bright, articulate and extremely knowledgeable regarding what it takes to sell a home. She was always available to answer any questions we had and made working with her a seamless experience. It was a pleasure to have Gina represent my wife and I in the sale of our home.

Gina Amen has been working very closely with my wife and I over the past two years in an attempt to find us "the right" home. Her professionalism, understanding, concern and knowledge have been most exemplary. She has gone far and beyond her regular duties in achieving our satisfaction. We have dealt with quite a few realty brokers, but none have matched Gina's dedication, integrity and honesty. For my wife and I, she has earned our trust and confidence and we highly recommend her services.
