  • Anne goes ABOVE & BEYOND expectations! She's a ROCKSTAR!!! All 5 out of 5's (A.L.)

 

  • A note about Anne, the realtor and the person! Being the complete professional she is, plus a super human, Anne made an appointment for me to see an amazing house...I needed to deliver a check, so I said I could drop it over ... it was ONLY then that she told me she would be with her husband John and one of her sons, and finally, that they had lost Beasley (there dog)! CAN YOU IMAGINE? I would have been UNABLE to cope,let alone do my job with the professionalism and care that Anne always does. I had to share this.(L.V.)

 

  • Anne made selling our house much easier. She has great knowledge of the local market and had us put our house on the market just at the right time to get the highest price. She is friendly and easy to work with. She has a lot of patience and guided us through the entire process. She has also helped us find the new home that we are going to build and has been outstanding in guiding us through that process as well. She will work hard for you! Great to work with. Very knowledgable. Goes out of her way and takes the time needed to find the right home for you. Highly recommend. Great experience and made one of the more difficult decisions in life (buying a home) a lot easier and smoother for our family. Anne Bishop is a true talent in finding the right home for you. My husband and I have worked with Anne purchasing and selling homes in Saratoga Springs several times and each time she has made the process go very smoothly. Anne’s expansive knowledge of the area is truly amazing. In addition to being a great realtor, Anne has an incredible work ethic. She is always organized, uses her time efficiently, and goes above and beyond to ensure that she finds the perfect home for you. I absolutely love working with Anne — I can’t recommend her highly enough!

 

  • Anne has handled four real estate transactions for us in the past few years, both buying and selling. Each time she has demonstrated extensive knowledge of the price ranges and property availability in Saratoga and the surrounding towns. She helped us find our dream home after searching for 1 1/2 years, called us the very hour the property went on the market, and helped us close on it quickly. She has helped us make changes to our properties that we were ready to sell, making them more attractive to prospective buyers. She and her husband have personal experience in upgrading homes, and determining if property is really worth the price the seller is asking.She is friendly and works well with other agents, local mortgage agents and lawyers. Whether you are buying or selling, this is the agent to call!

 

  • Anne was fantastic, she looked at our house, assessed what might stand out, gave suggestions for staging, and recommendations on list price that might reflect this, even though it was higher than recent sales. We sold the day the house was listed! (P.& H.V.)

Athena Pagnotti

 

  • Without reservation, we heartily endorse Athena to serve as a tenant/buyer representative.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly. Sincerely, (J.A.), Administrator Kinder Touch Lymphedema Center

 

  • I am writing to express my pleasure with real estate agent Athena Pagnotti, who represented me in my recent purchase of farm land for a build-to-suit arrangement. As my land search began, Athena took the time to learn specifically my property requirements. Athena’s well-informed questions not only helped me focus on the most important factors in my purchase, but also served to show her knowledge and experience. I cannot emphasize enough the extent to which Athena protected my interests throughout the transaction process. Her thorough research and practical approach protected me financially by giving me the information and reasoning I needed to make realistic, sensible offers. Once under contract, Athena helped me navigate through the multiple inspections prudent for this type of property purchase, including well and septic, structural (house and outbuildings), and ground contaminants. Her willingness to make repeated trips to the property assured me that these inspections were conducted properly. After closing, Athena’s continued guidance, advice and contacts were instrumental in learning about forestry plans, agricultural exemptions, and the local assessment grievance process. Had it not been for her involvement, I would not have achieved the time and cost savings I realized. During this process, I got to know Athena quite well. I found her to be honest and forthright, reliable and trustworthy. I am nothing but pleased with Athena and her expertise, and I recommend her wholeheartedly. (A.S.)

 

Barb Van Buren

 

  • Barb is knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated to her job! She found me a house even before I was looking! Barb had listened to me talking about purchasing a house in Saratoga and approached me about one that was available. There were several structural negotiations to work through, and she was fantastic with helping navigate the process. I would glad recommend Barb and BHHS/Blake to anyone in the market for a new home.

 

  • Barb has been and will continue to be “OUR REALTOR”. She is wonderful! All 5 out of 5’s (B. & W. R.)

 

  • Barb was just great. She knew exactly what we wanted and found us the perfect house. All 5 out of 5’s (S. & B. B.)

He is personable, and endlessly patient.  Bill was always available for any questions that we had and there were many and was generous with his time.  He is truly a gifted and talented person who surely knows his market.  Bill also took the time to thoroughly qualify any perspective buyer to assure the match.  It took Bill less than a week to sell the condo.  Bill also went above and beyond in helping us find my husband’s mom a new place to live.

Bill Chase

 

  • A huge thank you for four-star Realtor Bill Chase!!! And Bill Chase referred me to Jil in CHS, working with you on my move has been a joy. As a relocating client moving to an entirely new area in New York from New Jersey, this service was invaluable. I was absolutely lost in terms of who could pack, move and store my possessions until closing day. And as time went on, needs for other services became apparent. All anxieties were relieved, and I truly felt that there was someone in my corner looking out for my best interests during the move process. I am truly grateful for your services, positive demeanor, and clear love for your job! Thank you! (J.P.)

  • Just to let you know I am a few days away from closing on a house barring any last minute changes by the sellers or the finance people. Bill and I have thoroughly searched the entire housing area from Greenfield Center to Clifton Park and we have seen a lot of interesting “things” along the way. Bill has stuck with me to the end and even drove out during our worst snowfall of the year to bring me the papers to sign for my soon to be new “old” home. I never thought it would have taken 3 months to find a house, but it has truly been an eye opening experience and Bill has been there every step of the way to deliver customer satisfaction! It has been my honor to have worked with a true professional such as Bill. He should get a gold medal or something to put up with my southern accent and my uncanny ability to find houses that have the worst problems ever. He is a top salesman in my opinion and so thank you for letting me make the switch to Bill! (V.D.)

 

  • Bill was very professional & helpful walking me through the steps as a first time homebuyer. All 5 out of 5’s (D. P.)

 

  • Very pleased with Bill Chase. This is the second time we have called him to help with Realty buying. All 5 out of 5’s (C & W. B.)

Brigitte Strelka

 

  • Brigitte Strelka was one of the first people we met in Schenectady, NY, and she was invaluable in helping us get to know the area. Her knowledge of local houses, neighborhoods, towns, villages, and cities is encyclopedic, and she is endlessly patient. She listens carefully, and works to find the   house that works for you. She does not settle for, or try to sell you, second best. When new colleagues move to town, we always recommend Brigitte, and they, too, are grateful! (J.M.)

 

  • Brigitte provided all the necessary information that I needed to sign a sales agreement for the condo: –comps from other units in the building, assessment of features of my unit vs. others, overview of what buyers would be looking for, additional work I had to do to ready the unit for showing,   contact names and numbers to help me find movers, handyman, cleaners, lawyers.

 

  • She followed up on all the informal “leads” that we supplied. She sold the unit at the price I wanted and orchestrated a rapid close, which was important to me. While professional in all her work, she is also helpful and willing to do things that need doing to make the sale happen. Brigitte is an experienced agent and it shows. She got everything right the first time. She sold me this very unit 34 years ago. She was great to work with then. She is great to work with now.” (PG)

(S.L.)

 

  •  "5 out of 5 Stars I would rate my experience with Chino. I was in a bit of a bond with limited time and a very long want list, chino came recommended as a new agent who had a grasp on the market and was a great negotiator. Even tho I admit I had my doubts about him being a new Realtor but after the first phone call chino put all my worries to rest, he knew exactly what I was looking for and put my wants and needs into reality with a property that I loved at the right price of course.I have been in the house for 2 weeks now and couldn't be happier!!!

Crystal Coleman

 

  • I could not have had such an amazing experience without Crystal and her Team.

 

  • Thank you with all my heart for the amazing recommendation to Crystal. Magnificent experience. One Hell of a Team to be working for me & my new house!!!

 

  • We met Crystal about 5 yrs ago at an open house in East Greenbush. We immediately were impressed with her professional approach, easy to talk to, no pressure. Although the house was not what we wanted we were so impressed with Crystal we decided if were to buy or sell we would sign her on as our agent. For the next 5 years numerous times, Crystal showed us different homes, I have to admit we are not the easiest to please, but never once did Crystal show any disappointment only patience with us. We had our hearts set on a small ranch in a nice development.  Finally we decided to put our home up for sell with no prospects of another house, we just felt the time was right. Crystal came out, reviewed our home, we agreed on a price, with that she did a beautiful job marketing our home, so well it hit the market at 4 pm on a Tuesday, at 5 pm she had a call for a showing, the couple saw our house on Wednesday and it was sold.  We did find a house, put in a bit, actually had a contract on that house but the seller was being difficult at the time.  While we were waiting for him to sign the contract that small ranch, in a nice developement went on the market.  On a Sunday I call Crystal, told her we wanted to see the house, she was able to get us in on that Monday for a showing, we loved it, but we had a contract on the house.  Early Tuesday morning I get a call at work from Crystal she contacted the lawyer found out the party of the first house never signed the contract, therefore we were able to pull that contract, we trusted Crystal so much we had her handle the bid on the small ranch, we got he home of our dreams.  We are in the house less than a year and we love our new home.  I have recommended Crystal to many of my friends, I tell them if you want an agent who will, look out for your best interest, get you the best deal and find the home of your dreams you will not find a harder worker than Crystal Coleman. Sincerely(N.C. & C. G.)

 

  • I would like to thank Crystal for all her hard work when working with family and friends.  I have recommended her to many people, and they were not only happy with her services, but her presentation as well.  She is professional, attentive and knowledgable.  Her smile is “catching”.  I personally would like to thank her for all her hard work when my husband and I were looking for a home.  She listened to our wishes and gave us good advice as to what would really would work for us. We found our home and 10 years later still enjoying it.Thank you and keep up the good work. (L.& R.)

  • I recently purchased a beautiful home in Warrensburg, NY with the help of my realtor, Cynthia Harrigan.  Cynthia had been referred to me by my aunt, and she went above the call of duty to make sure I found the perfect house for my family.  Being a busy professional with little free time sometimes made showings difficult but she always managed to get us in at a time that was convenient for me.  During my search she continued to encourage me not to settle until I found the right home and kept me from getting discouraged.  When I did finally find the right home she helped make the cumbersome process of contracts, inspections, and appraisals flow as smoothly as possible.  Whether it be a call to the seller's agent or being available to let the inspector into the property Cynthia was always willing to do what was necessary to not only close the deal, but make sure my needs and wants were met.  Working with her was truly a pleasure and if the need arises again I would not hesitate to use her services. (C.S.)

  • I just wanted to take a moment to let you know what a great experience I had with the purchase of my new home. That was due to the absolutely excellent service I received from the real estate Agent Dee Rowan. Dee is a true professional. She always listened to my needs, was right on top of any listing that may have been of interest to me, was patient and comprehensive in understanding and answering my questions, and most of all was fair and honest. These were traits I greatly appreciated in a real estate Agent, due to this being the first home I purchased. She made the transaction a smooth, comfortable experience for me. I would definitely utilize her in any future transactions and would recommend her to any friend, or family member I had, that may be interested in buying or selling a home. (B. S.)

 

  • In September my fiancé and I closed on our first home. We love it. I can’t stress that enough. Everything about it is amazing for someone like myself that has bounced around from different locations and various living arrangements, this home actually feels like a home to me. My fiancé Jennifer also couldn’t be happier with the location, neighbors, and convenience of our surroundings. This is all the hard work of Kerri Arserio and Dee Rowan. Both of them worked with us well over a year and constantly gave us updates, suggestions and facts whenever we needed them. It was a pleasure to work with them! I would recommend Kerri or Dee to anyone looking for to purchase a home. I have heard horror stories about people switching realtors over and over again, some being too bossy, and some who have been horribly rude to their clients to the point where tears were shed. I consider myself lucky to have worked with both of them. They were outstanding! If it wasn’t for Kerri and Dee’s commitment to Jen and myself, we would have never found such a perfect home. I just wanted to take the time to share that with you. (J. D.)

  • Excellent photos for brochure and excellent at adequate description.  All 5 out of 5’s (J.P.)

 

Erin Looman

 

  • Erin sold my house in 12 days! I was worried because I had to put my house on the market in the middle of winter. Not the ideal time for sure. But Erin did all her homework: she gathered the house facts, pre-gamed it on her social media and even took a video that got hundreds of views. She had thousands of flyers made up but as it turned out we never even needed them mailed! Her experience and thoroughness made it easy for me to feel comfortable with this sale even though I was 1500 miles away. I highly recommend her as one of the best agents in the Capitol Region (E.F.)

 

  • I have known Erin for many years, she was my childhood babysitter and next door neighbor. We have stayed in touch over the years as we both share a passion for horses. When Erin found out we were in the market for a horse property she was eager to embark on a search for/with us. As soon as Erin found a potential property she would email the listing our way and ask if we would like to look at the property. She was extremely flexible and always went out of her way to make time for showings. She was more than willing to return to the property if we requested an additional showing. Erin was prompt and precise when filling out and submitting paperwork. We were always kept in the loop and given frequent updates. Erin went out of her way, often meeting at odd hours to accommodate our work schedules. To make a long story short, Erin found us the perfect farm! We moved in 4th of July weekend, 2015. At this same time, we also sold our other home in which Erin had listed, it sold in ONE day!!! I would highly recommend Erin to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is driven, motivated and goes above and beyond for her clients. She will continue to work until you find the home of your dreams!!! (L. & R.)

 

  • Erin Looman has been my realtor for both purchasing and selling my home. She was great from the first moment we met her at an open house, guiding me professionally through both processes of selling and buying. She showed me over 40 homes before I purchased mine and was always available for showings, questions, always friendly and patient and very knowledgable. In selling my home, she went above and beyond what other realtors might do in marketing which resulted in a quick sale for my home. She is definitely a five star agent and I would not hesitate referring buyers or sellers to her. I’m purchasing property out of state now and only wish I could be using her for this transaction! (W.B.)

 

Fran Callahan

 

  • Fran is the best real estate agent I have ever worked with. The most honest lady in the business. I would trust her blindly. She will give you the best ideas and will tell you all pros and cons of the property.

 

  • She is not just trying to sell you a property just like some put there. Also she wants her clients happy.

 

  • Fran is the best. She has been so patient with us, never pressures us, and has become a part of our lives. We are currently in a contract but have been looking for THREE years! Not because of her but because I am so darn picky. I will be sad when the time comes that we are no longer shopping because we will miss Fran dearly. I cannot say enough good things about her.

 

  • Used Fran for buying our first house. She was excellent at screening houses for us and keeping us away from houses that were a waste or our time. We had a specific deadline when we needed to be out of our apartment and she properly moved us to get an accepted offer 2 months in advance so we could move in on time.

 

  • She didn’t play any games. Showed us houses, directed our searches based upon wishes and budget. Found a great house, and provided lots of help through the closing and possession

 

  • Fran Callahan is the best real estate agent we have ever had & would use her again & recommend her to everyone. Fran made our transition to NY that much easier.

 

  • Fran was ALWAYS available.

 

  • Fran Callahan did a fantastic job helping me through the home buying process

 

  • Thank you for helping us through the purchase of our home. Thank you for being patient and forthright with us. (NN)

 

  • “Just wanted to say thank you again for your continued help, guidance, support and friendship throughout the long road to our beautiful new home.  We couldn’t be happier and we couldn’t have done this without you. You’re so great at what you do and we’re both so grateful that we stumbled uponyou because we couldn’t have chosen a better realtor to work with!”  (Noelle & Will)

Frances Briody

 

  • As we reflect how lucky and happy we are to be living where we are, we find ourselves thinking about our outstanding real estate agent Fran Briody! She recognized our style, knew our must haves and found our perfect home! Fran is an extremely proactive sales professional. Fran is a clear-headed, analytical thinker who can identify good opportunities and plan strategies for seizing them. She worked hard for us and kept our best interest at heart!(S.F & N. L.)

 

Fred Alvaro

 

  • I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU! We feel so lucky to have had such a hardworking and professional team help us to buy our first house. I got back into town from Colorado on Saturday and it was amazing to be able to walk right into our new house. Both James and I had such a great experience throughout this whole process. (J.H.)

 

Helen Danciu

 

  • “Helen is an amazing agent! Our house was under contract by the first day of its showing. She is highly dependable, detail oriented, knowledgeable, and consistently responds to emails and texts expeditiously. Helen aggressively advocated for us and found out the answers to any question we had. She went out of her way to bring us comfort by attending the inspection of our house and delivered and explained documents in person. She currently is helping us search for our new home. She only sends us houses that we would be interested in and works with our schedule for showings. We would highly recommend Helen Danciu as a buyer or seller agent!” (K.R.)

 

  • Helen was great from the beginning I was a first time home buyer and she walked me through every step of the way. Any questions I had I called her directly and she would always answer did not have to wait to talk to her I would text or call her and her response was very prompt. She was patient andexplained everything to me. As my agent she was great but she not only treated me as a client but as a friend which made me feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend her as an agent she is great at what she does and I appreciate everything she did for me. (UR-Z)

 

Holly Aiken

 

  • We recently sold and bought a house with Holly Aiken as our Realtor. We met Holly at the bowling alley and she was so personable and friendly when we met I happily took her card. At the time we weren't ready to sell our house, but we knew it was going to be sometime in the near future. Fast forward a few months and I contacted Holly after seeing a home we were interested in looking at on the market. We were still not sure if we were ready to put our house on the market but thought it was worth looking into. Holly got us into that house within days and also found another in our price range for us to check out. She then came to our house to see what she thought and said she thought it would sell. We ended up putting in an offer on the first house we saw but didn't get the house as they had already accepted another offer. At this point Holly went above and beyond for us. After getting our house on the market in a matter of a day or 2, Holly went door to door trying to find us our perfect house to buy. We wanted to stay in our elementary school district (which Holly happens to live in). Holly told us her neighbor was moving and the house wasn't on the market yet but she talked to the owners and got us in to look at the house. We loved it. Made an offer and it was accepted. Never even went on the market! Next we had to sell our house! Which Holly did an amazing job to help us do!  She was very willing to do anything and everything to help us. 2 Open houses and many showings later, we sold the house. We closed on the sale and the buy the same day and Holly was with us every step of the way. She even made us a wreath for our new front door!  We are lucky to have had her as our realtor and we are lucky to have her as our neighbor! (B. & A. S.)

 

  • Holly Aiken is one of the most dedicated and professional agents anyone could work with! She is very knowledgeable and diligent! Always willing to listen and answer any questions to better help in the buying and selling process. Very friendly with outstanding customer service!  D.B.

 

  • Holly did an excellent job helping us to sell our house...She stayed on top of things and helped us get it closed after we had already moved.  I recommend her highly! (D.R.)

 

  • While searching for our dream property we found a listing online. Our initial phone calls to the listing agent got us nowhere. One call to Holly Aiken and we were able to see the property immediately! We fell in love with the place and knew we had found the "one". Holly acted with complete professionalism throughout the entire purchasing process. She was beyond thorough and made sure we were kept informed on a daily basis. I would absolutely recommend Holly Aiken for all of your real estate needs! (K.D.)

 

  • Thanks to Holly we are in our new home!!!! Holly was there every step of the way. When we had questions she was there with the answers. Thank you Holly, we love our new home!!  (B.K.)

 

Jacalyn Itzkow

 

  • It is my pleasure to recommend Jacalyn Itzkow as a Licensed Real Estate Agent. Being a first time homebuyer, I knew very little about the process before meeting with Jacalyn. I immediately felt better after my first meeting with Jacalyn as she explained the process succinctly and in great detail. From the very beginning of the process, Jacalyn made it a point to get to know me on a personal level. Not only did this allow her to provide a warm and friendly discourse, but it enabled her to more fully understand my preferences and requirements in a home. From start to finish, Jacalyn was extremely responsive and consistently went out of her way to schedule viewings with me around my busy schedule, be it on my lunch break, after work, or over the weekend. While viewing homes it was very apparent that Jacalyn is incredibly knowledgeable in her field, as she was always quick to offer a suggestion or idea. I can truly say that Jacalyn has been invaluable in facilitating my recent real estate purchase, and can wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who needs to know that their Agent has nothing but their client’s best interest in mind. (S.J.)

 

  • Sincerity, Integrity, and Intelligence, are just a few of the words that come to mind to describe our experience in working with Jackie in the sale of our home. She has gone the “extra mile” and spared no expense in the representation of our home, with professionally taken photos combined in a Photo Binder, along with glossy colored handouts, available for review by potential buyers.    Jackie’s advice, diligence, patience, and most of all support and knowledge of real estate, has led to the successful completion of this important transition in our life.  We HIGHLY recommend Jackie as a top-rated professional and real estate agent, and would never hesitate to call upon her services in the future. (M. & H.H.)

 

  • If you are looking for a professional real estate Agent to handle the sale of your home, I would highly recommend Jacalyn Itzkow of BHHS/Blake. I recently engaged her servicesto sell my mother’s home in Albany. Jackie is truly an outstanding Real Estate Professional.Her advice, attention to detail and marketing effortswere second to none! Jackie handled our challenging sale which was unique since their were 3 owners. Her communication was outstanding. My attorney who has worked with many Agents said Jackie was one of the best he had the pleasure to work with. (J.D.)

 

  • Jackie recently served as the Agent for the sale of my house in Albany, NY. Jackie exhibited many traits and abilities that contributed to the quick sale of my home. Outstanding service provided. Jackie was always available to speak with me via cell or meet me personally. We spoke almost daily. Jackie was diligent in setting up viewings by prospective Buyers. She kept me up to date on showings and the results of the viewings. Jackie worked proactively with me during the negotiation process, giving suggestions as to what was reasonable to accept and offer and what was not. (G.A.)

 

  • My husband and I wanted to express our sincere appreciation for all of Ms. Jackie Itzkow’s amazing help in finding us our new home. Jackie is the best real estate Agent we have ever worked with. She has incredible attention to detail, over the top follow through and is extremely kind and personable. Jackie went above and beyond with helping us resolve concerns about potential homes and took initiative in obtaining timely estimates for how much things would cost to repair. We were most appreciative of Jackie’s no pressure, energetic, trustworthy, positive and patient approach : Jackie was genuinely interested in finding us a home we would be happy with and that would be a good fit for our family. (C.A & Dr. A.P.)

 

  • My wife and I were first time home buyers when we enlisted the help of Jackie Itzkow. Jackie was with us every step of the way. She always had a positive outlook and truly had our best interest at heart. I highly recommend you consider using Jackie Itzkow, you will not find another Realtor that cares about her clientsas much as Jackie! (M. & A. I.)

 

  • I have known Jacalyn Itzkow for more than 20 years. I was so fortunate to have been able to contact her when I needed to sell my home. Her knowledge, integrity, and enthusiasm made Jacalyn the perfect choice. She thoroughly explained the process and was always available for any of my questions. I was extremely impressed by her professionalism, hard work and honesty. Her experience with and knowledge of the local real estate market made the sale of the house so easy for me.  I would highly recommend Jacalyn as a real estate agent and I am confident that any future clients who will to sell or purchase a home will be more than satisfied. (K.N.)

Jacqueline Parker

 

  • “She was awesome to work with! Great communication!” –(T.P.B. LLC)

 

  • I just wanted to express what a wonderful agent Erin Looman was, my husband and I decided to purchase a house I contacted Erin and advised her of what we were looking for and the price range we were looking in. Erin continued to send us listings daily and schedule showings, we finally found the house that we wanted to purchase, Erin worked with the sellers realtor and we purchased our home. We are so happy with our purchase and Erin Looman and Berkshire Hathaway. Once again thank you so much Erin for getting us our home (A. & J. B.).

 

Jeff and Pam York

 

  • Having just closed on my Gurney Lane property in Queensbury I wanted you to know how extremely pleased I was with your handling of the entire transaction from start to finish. Your professionalism was outstanding. One thing in particular that I really appreciated was your responsiveness when there was an issue that needed to be addressed. It seems from my past experience with other real estate brokers and sales people that a fast response was not always forthcoming. In every instance, if you were not immediately available by phone, you always responded promptly after receiving my message. Communication is key for me and I really appreciated your quick and complete responses. Your advice in looking at comparables at the outset was invaluable. Obviously with your advice, the property was priced right and sold quickly.  That is greatly appreciated.

 

  • I would be happy to speak with any prospective clients you may have in the future if they are looking for recommendations.  Thanks again for your fine service. Sincerely, (J.D.)

 

  • Thank you for assisting us with the purchase of the land across the street from our home on Lake George in Diamond Point. Ownership of these three lots assures us that development, if any, will occur in a manner consistent with the beautiful homes that already exist in the neighborhood. Your professionalism in closing on these properties was appreciated, as was your assistance in identifying necessary service providers and in simplifying the legal matters.  You made the transactions painless! (D & D. R.)

 

  • Jeff is an experienced, extremely competent Real Estate Professional! (Mr. L.)

Jeffrey Taylor

 

  • “Jeff was a great realtor. He understood what my fiancee and I wanted in a house and picked the houses in our area and price range that matched the best. He was not too pushy when we went to showings and allowed us to explore the house at our own pace. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their house.” – (C. M.)

 

  • “In selling our property, Jeff was outstanding personally and professionally. We were trying to settle an estate from out of state and Jeff coordinated everything for us. He certainly saved us from numerous headaches and he even recommended an excellent real estate attorney to help us through the legalities. I’d highly recommend his services to anyone buying or selling property in the Troy area.” – (T. F.)

 

Jennifer Eitleman

 

  • Jen helped us sell and purchase a home. She’s very kind & compassionate. Jen is extremely intelligent, knowledgeable, & competent!

 

  • Meeting Jen for the first time we knew she would be our Realtor. She went above & beyond the call of duty for us.

 

  • Never complained or gave up on us even though we were finicky.

 

  • Jen made the entire transactions effortless.

 

  • Sold our home quickly & found us a home I adore!

 

  • Jen has always had such a positive outlook!

 

  • Let me quickly introduce myself: I’m a 27 year old who bought my first home at 24 and lord did I get myself into it. Through a lot of sweat and tears, I fixed it up with a lot of education along the way. When it was time to move, I knew I wanted it to go quick and the (hopeful) income was greatly needed. Where do I start???

    I didn’t want to use my previous realtor because the experience was very difficult and impersonal. When searching for a new realtor, I wanted to find someone who would actually do the job of a realtor and just…HANDLE IT.

    Immediately Jen made me feel that way. She was committed and had a plan. I barely had to do anything, she handled everything. She was easy to communicate with (texting was my fave) and always available. She was realistic in pricing and aggressive in marketing. She did her own photos and told me how to stage the place to make it look nice.

    Just like that, the house was listed on a Friday and sold 2 days later! Jen negotiated a fair price and walked me through every step of the sale process (because honestly I had no clue what I was doing).

    Jen is funny and down to earth but don’t let that fool you, she gets the job done. I would use her again and again and refer her to anyone! You would be silly not to use her as your realtor. Sincerely (C.S.)

 

Jessica Robilotto

 

  • It was a great experience working with Jessica. She was extremely accommodating to what we needed and helped us in any way she could. Our house sold extremely fast and she found our Dream Home for us at the same time. Jessica knows what she is doing and I would recommend her to anyone that needs to purchase or sell a home. She truly cares about her clients and delivers fast results. (Renee and Tom M.)

 

  • I would highly recommend Jessica to ANYONE that is serious about purchasing property.She is a very reliable source and is helpful getting you all the information needed. I have had a great experience in my hunt for a home for the first time. (J.N)

 

Jim Conroy

 

  • Jim was the first person I met in Troy, 4 years later he is still one of my main points of contact in the City. Jim has helped on the purchase of 2 historic properties in Troy, and has shown me several others.

As an out of state developer, Jim was a very valuable resource and one of the major reasons Vecino Group has had success in Troy. (R.M.)

Joanie Kraft

 

  • I just wanted to write a testimonial for Joanie Kraft. Joanie took over as my realtor in February to sell my condo at Strawberry Condominiums. After being on the market for 232 days without an acceptable offer, Joanie stepped in and sold the condo within a month at the asking price. She was able to do this through her real estate speciality, which included sending out handwritten invitations to all the residents of Strawberry Condominiums and had a resident only open house. As a result from this approach, there were four showings and three offers. Under her direction, Joanie was extremely proactive in making the sale after being on the market for so long. She was very professional and went out of her way to make herself available. This was especially appreciated since throughout the selling process I was living out of state in Oklahoma and was confident that she was doing everything she could on her end to make the sale happen. Like I said, the total time was 24 days. Also, she personally procured a cash offer for the asking price and it closed in three weeks! My thanks to Joanie.  (MF M.)

 

  • On my third attempt to sell my house I was finally successful. My house finally sold because I had a GREAT Realtor Joanie is a ball of fire.  She did a beautiful write up on my home describing all of the nice, positive features that on older home (128 yrs older) would have. I asked her to take pictures of the elementary school across the street from my house, because I felt that it was an additional asset.  She did so without a moment’s hesitation.

    I have worked with at least 8 Realtors in my life, I have bought and sold previous homes, my next home will be in Florida, I wish that I could put Joanie in my suitcase (and she would definitely fit) and bring her with me to help my purchase my future nest. Sadly I know I can't do that but what I can do is to continue to work with the same real estate company Berkshire Hathaway Home Services because their services were above excellent. Thank you from one happy and satisfied customer! (D. B.)

 

John Cyr

 

  • I recently had the pleasure of working with John Cyr in purchasing my first home. John came highly recommended through a co-worker/friend and I felt to share with you my overall satisfaction in every aspect of my purchasing process. From the day John showed me the house to present, he has gone beyond expectations to accommodate my requests and inquiries. He has spent countless hours with me renovating necessary issues related to the property. John has been selfless, professional and consummate in every detail and communication. He has guided me through unfamiliar territory, building my confidence every step of the way. I was so satisfied with John's work ethic that I decided to have him represent me in showing the units to possible tenants. He is a straight shooter and stays true to his word. In closing, I have recommended John to many people with full assurance he will continue to serve them as he served me. Thank you for the time and energy you personally spent reviewing contracts and documents. It is greatly appreciated. Looking forward to doing business with you in the future. (C.M.)

     

    Joseph Tine

     

    • I cannot rave enough about Joe!! We were in a crunch to find a home and he really maximized our viewing times. He listened to what we were looking for and didn’t waste time in showing us homes that didn’t fit the bill. He has a great sense of humor and a wealth of knowledge, both were key in such a stressful time.  He also wasn’t afraid of crawling up in the attics or down into the cellars with us to make sure everything checked out. He goes above and beyond. And I still call to ask him questions about real estate and our home. He always takes the time to talk with me and check things out. He’s the kind of guy you wouldn’t mind having as your neighbor!! (Jessica & James)

     

    • Joe, Thank you again for everything.  You have always had my back, and my friend Tom noticed that also and was extremely impressed.  As he said and I wholeheartedly agree. You are not like agents who just want to make a sale - you truly are concerned about what is best for me and I am so fortunate to have found you! (GL Rd.)

     

    Josephine Bruno

     

    • Josie is a real pro and put in so much effort into helping us. With its asking price, I know it will be a lower commission but she helped sell it as if it was a million dollar listing! Kim

     

    Josephine Knack

     

    • I can HONESTLY say I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home. Thank you Josie for such a wonderful experience. (B)

     

    • I have known Josephine Knack for over 30 years professionally and personally. Last year when I decided it was time to move from my house on Ormond Street I called Josie and told her exactly what I wanted, we looked off and on for about 1 year when she found the perfect house for me and the amenities I wanted. After about 2 hours of negotiations...the family accepted my offer. The closing went smoothly and I had plenty of time I wanted to put things in the new house and make minor repairs before I agreed to put Ormond St. on the market. My house sold within 2 days...Again Josie made sure everything went smoothly. She dotted every I and crossed every T and I can honestly say I would recommend her to anyone who was looking to sell or buy their home. (BV)

    Judy Rancourt

     

    • I cannot speak highly enough about the professional and caring service I received from Judy Rancourt & Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Blake, Realtors.  Judy did a marvelous job and helped me thru the whole selling process.  She is a very kind, caring and professional person and one whom I now consider my friend.  (E. L.)

     

    • “Selling ones home is never an easy process but Judy Rancourt helped us in every aspect. She was honest and straight forward and we valued her opinion because we knew she had our best interests at heart. She marketed the property with open houses backed by circulars, ads and brochures which always were well attended, and always followed up with everyone interested. She was always accessible if we had questions. In our opinion we couldn’t have had a better relator!!” (K.A.)

     

    • Judy Rancourt was instrumental in helping us sell our big colonial revival house. Judy’s a real professional with years of experience in residential real estate.  Always upbeat, she was persistent in her effort to sell our house and creative in tailoring her marketing approaches to our particular situation. Whenever we had questions or concerns, Judy was prompt, knowledgeable and gracious in her response – a delight to work with. We are deeply grateful for all she did for us. (D.&D.B.)

     

    • Judy, I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for ALL you have done to sell 680 5th Ave. You are certainly an asset to your profession. I will be sure to refer people to you any chance I get. Thank you again for everything. (D.B.)

    • I’m writing to extend my thanks and gratitude for the professional and efficient way you sold my townhouse…so soon after it was put in your hands. For three previous years other realtors had represented me with no such success…Specifically, I was attracted to you as an agent by your willingness to go out of your way to offer suggestions to me on various ways in which my      property could be made more attractive in “showings”…it certainly gave me confidence in you, Julia, as an agent and someone who understands what attracts buyers…(A. NY)

    Kathleen Korzyck

     

    • I was using the services of your realtor, Kathy Korzyk in finding a home to buy under a VA Loan.  Kathy was always understanding my wants in a home.  Any home I wanted to look at, she gladly arrange it for me to see it.  She always had a smile on her face and was fun to have her as my realtor.  She was very knowledgeable with looking at any home to buy under a VA loan.  When I finally wanted to make a offer on a home she help me make an offer with room for the seller to come back with a counter offer which I accepted and also got him to include the washer and dryer too.  She even drove me to the closing for the home.  She kept in touch with me till the day I moved into my new home.  She is truly a valuable asset to your company.  I will be mentioning her services to anyone I know is looking for a home. Regards, (PB)

     

    • What to say about Kathy? She is an exceptional person and we would certainly never have gotten our house without her. We were ready to give up several times, but she just wouldn’t! She kept us going and finally we got our beautiful house! We cannot thank Kathleen enough. We were moving from Europe and everything was a nightmare, we didn’t know anyone and Kathy advised us very competent people all along the way.She really made this happen! On top of that she managed to find us the perfect home that we had totally overlooked! She spent a whole day to travel us around to different houses, listened and saw what we liked and wanted… (CB)

     

    • Kathleen never did even try pushing on us something we didn’t like and in the end, she recommended a few houses that we hadn’t seen based on what she saw we liked and bingo! I could go on and on about how wonderful it as having Kathy as a realtor but I will stop there and simply say that if you are relocating or have an unusual situation, Kathy is definitely the person to go to and I cannot recommend her enough to really anyone. Thank you again Kathy! (Cecilia)

     

    Kathren Jaeger

     

    • My most recent experience with a realtor was as a home seller. My agent was Kathren Jaeger. At our second meeting when I signed the listing contract, she looked me in the eye and explained very clearly that it was her job to represent my interests throughout the duration of the agreement. If the eventual buyer came through her, another agent would be appointed to represent the buyer so that Kathren could continue to represent me. That gave me great peace of mind, and also allowed me to put my trust in Kathren from day one. I would recommend Kathren to anyone interested in selling or buying a home. Thank you for being a steady, calm participant in the delays leading to the closing.  That helped me a lot. (V.C.)

     

    Keith Woodard

     

    • Keith is a wonderful, kind and patient real estate agent.

He was exceptionally helpful in terms of identifying what combinations of elements were important to us and how to go about finding them. Overall we had a great experience and recommend Keith to anyone looking for a real estate agent. (S.G.)

    • I’m currently house hunting and working with a great realtor – Kerri Arserio.

I’ve worked with a number of agents over the years and this is the first one I’ve really liked, trusted and thought actually earned her commission! (Allie)

     

    • From the first phone call through the closing she was fantastic! I live overseas with a 12 hour time difference and depended on her communication to be timely and thorough, which it always was. I knew if something was scheduled that she’d be there, she went out of her way to accommodate my needs whether scanning documents, making local arrangements with inspectors, contractors and other vendors, as well as delivering things for me to my real estate lawyer or authorized family in the area. She honestly could not have made the whole process easier for me…We had multiple offers the first time around and I felt she always had my best interests in mind. When the first contract didn’t work out, we had multiple offers again within days and she was on top of every detail helping me navigate things…I will enthusiastically recommend her to anyone I know if I get the chance and she’d be the first realtor I’d call if I was ever to be looking in the area in the future.”(A D.)

     

    • “This is to let you know how pleased my wife and I are to have worked with Kerri Arserio twice in the last three years. Kerri did a great job listening to our needs and helping us find the right house quickly three years ago when I was transferred to Albany on short notice by my employer. Then I had a life altering accident in Sept. 2011 and once stabilized, we needed to move closer to family so that my wife and I could get family support for things I am no longer physically able to do. As you know the housing market has been difficult in the Glenville area. Kerri worked very hard finding a buyer and then went to extra effort to follow through to make sure the sale happened. She helped us get bids on radon abatement and helped us get rid of some large furniture items after we had moved out of the house back to the Midwest. Kerri works hard, communicates well and makes things happen by effectively dealing with all obstacles that arise. She is unquestionably one of the most effective and professional people I have encountered in my 60 years on earth. In addition she has the world’s best recipe for chicken and dumplings which makes her extremely close to perfect. You are lucky to have her working with you. (W&J.E)

     

    • “We want you to know how very much we appreciate all of your help with selling our house. Your kindness, friendship and support mean the world to us. Change is always difficult.  You were with us every step of the way and we will always be grateful”. (M.& S. Z)

     

    • “I just wanted to express my gratitude towards one of your agents, Kerri Arserio. She has been one of the most professional, attentive, and efficient agents I have worked with.  Her focus on details and prompt follow up really sets her apart.  Even with dealing with my lender, who at times made the whole process complicated, she was my biggest advocate and assisted with facilitating information between all parties involved.  She goes way beyond expectations for her clients.  In all, she is a valuable asset to your team that I would refer to anyone I know in need of an agent.  Hopefully, I will not have to relocate anytime soon, but if I do I know I have the perfect agent to work with. (R. W.)

     

    • “We wanted to say Thank You for all your help in our search for a new home and selling our old house. Given our past search, we were apprehensive and not sure of what we will see, but with yours and Kim’s help and guidance, we found the perfect place for us. Many thanks!

She showed us numerous houses making herself available whenever we needed her. In the end we got a great house we are very happy with! (S.S.)

     

    • Throughout the two month selling process, Kris maintained a positive outlook among many adversaries along the selling process due to dishonest, rude, obstructive behavior on part of buyer group. She offered alternatives, was readily available, very informative. She was very supportive of the interest of the seller. Taking away from her personal life, she gave many hours to service in order to keep the process running smoothly. She was emotionally support to the seller during a difficult time of settling an estate. (I.J.)

     

    • Kris was great from start to finish. We needed our house sold ASAP and Kris came through. We had 3 showings and in less than 2 weeks we had an offer on our home. She was always available when needed and took care of everything. We have bought and sold homes before and Kris by far made this sale and our purchase a breeze. She definitely exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend her. (T.A.)

     

    • Kris was FANTASTIC! Our process was awful to sell our home-BUYER’s FAULT. Kris was the only person we worked with that had answers and knew what was happening.  All 5 out of 5’s. (E. & N. M.)

    • She always met us with a cheerful disposition. Even if we were not interested in the property, she took the time to focus on learning why so she could help us with future properties. We also have a baby who was only two months old at the start of the home buying process. Latasha was so patient with us! Whether he was crying or needed to be fed, she was so calm and just went with the flow. This allowed us to feel very comfortable with pursuing a new home. We searched for a home in several of the surrounding towns.  Latasha knew about each of the areas and was able to give us an idea of schools, shopping and pros and cons at each property. This was valuable as we had relocated and we were not familiar with Albany or its suburbs.  Latasha had the comps. She worked extra hard for us to put an offer in very late in the day- after hours. I remember feeling so happy that the sellers had the offer before going to bed that night.

     

    • Latasha was very accessible throughout the negotiation process and worked hard to get us the house of our dreams at a good price.

     

    • Latasha is professional and a wonderful person! We would absolutely use Latasha again for buying or selling our home

     

    • ..this is my experience with Latasha. Over the years I’ve worked with many real estate agents but Latasha is by far the best! Not only did she do everything above and beyond my expectations (and they were high), I found her to be the most resourceful agent I’ve ever met. I will definitely use her to help me buy my next home and sell my current one.

     

    • Latasha Bosh is a GREAT agent to work with. She is very passionate and diligent in assisting her client. I had the pleasure of allowing her help me find my FIRST HOME.

    • She’s very professional and does not force anything on her client. She gives you the information you need and allows you to make the decision that’s best for you.

     

    • Latasha goes the extra mile and does well at referring you to other professionals in the home buying process, such as, inspectors and lawyers. I know for me being a first time home buyer and not having any idea about these sort of things it was nice to know I had someone like Latasha that I could trust. She doesn’t stop until the job is done. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a honest, loyal and dedicated agent. (AN)

     

    • Ms. Bosh is a consummate professional who personifies excellent customer service. As an out-of-towner, I especially needed an agent with integrity and one who'd be responsive.

She managed the sales process expertly and regularly kept me informed about its progress. Her competence, responsiveness, and personal touch, engendered my complete trust and confidence. I had a delightful, worry-free, and satisfying experience. In a word: she's AWESOME. (LM.)

I would highly recommend using Lauren for your home buying (and selling) needs. (U&S.R)

It became very clear to us, as we were going through challenges with purchasing our new home and making sure that items on the inspection had been completed---properly---that Les was our advocate and wanted to make sure that we were happy with our end product. Les spent countless hours coordinating with contractors, the seller's agent, our attorney and their attorney, to make sure that we were happy. Les is excellent at communicating and I always felt in the loop and had a handle on what was going on. While looking at homes, he walked through each one-gave explanation of things in homes, things to watch out for, but always kept a neutral opinion unless asked. He wanted US to be happy and we never felt pushed into purchasing a home or looking at one that we did not feel was a good 'fit." It was a great experience working with Les. He even worked to make sure our houses closed on the same day to minimize the disruption in our lives for our children. We highly recommend Les for both sale and purchase of a home! (L.T.)

    Libby McKee

     

    • Libby was professional, reliable, trustworthy and creative. We feel lucky to have found her. My partner and I are “212ers.” My partner has been traveling to the Hudson Valley since she was a teenager and I have been trekking up there with her for the last four years. As a hard core New Yorker, I didn’t think there was another place in America I would fall in love with, and more importantly want to live, until I came to the Hudson Valley. On one trip, out of seemingly nowhere, we decided we should look into buying. On paper we were the worst kind of customer: we didn’t know what we wanted, which town we wanted to live in, if and when we wanted to leave the city, and we were both first time home buyers with my partner having her own business. Libby took all of these variables in stride and those gracious Southern eyelashes didn’t blink. Our spur-of-the-moment decision and overall uncertainty about the move didn’t get in the way of her providing top notch yet personalized service. Her strength is her ability to read between the lines and think outside the box. That is how we, renters practically all our adult life, are on our way to becoming landlords and real estate investors, moving into a house in the Hudson Valley! Our property is the perfect fit for so many reasons and we owe it all to Libby.  We highly recommend Libby for purchasing a home in the Hudson Valley. (NN)

    • Relocating from Virginia to New York with our family seemed scary, and a very intimidating process.We knew nothing about the area and was assigned an agent to assist in the process. Liz met us as soon as we landed and had many homes to show us.  After making our choice of a rental home, Liz was willing to spend time with us and aquaint us with the area.  She was friendly and put us right at ease.  I took many notes and spent the next day visiting many of the places she suggested.  We had a wonderful time thanks to her.  She had continued to email and check in on us and tell us about events in the area.  I can’t tell you enough how thankful I am to have her as our first impression ofupstate New York.”~Cindy and David S.

     

    Liz Paone

     

    • I had my house and 20 acres of land listed with another realtor for a year with no movement. Called Liz for a meeting. She was very knowledgeable. Did a great job with pricing and necessary things to get done to make the property sellable. I had great faith in Liz's expertise and knowledge andeverything was sold within 4 months. I moved to West Virginia and lived there for seven years. When I decided to sell my home and move back to this area I contacted Liz to help me find was I was looking for. I traveled back and forth to Albany several times and we looked at condos and townhouses. She was very patient and helpful in helping me find exactly what I was looking for. I moved into my new townhouse in February and couldn't be happier. Liz has great knowledge in all different phases of real estate and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Liz and I have known each other for over seven years and not only is she a great professional but has become a good friend. (PDS)

We are so lucky that you were our Agent. We will recommend you to anyone who needs an Agent in the future. (L)

     

    • I would add your market research was spot on. The other Agent that we ditched wanted to list the house for $130K and told us we would be lucky if we get $125K. You got us much more in a record quick sale. Thank you. (T.)

She sold our home in under thirty days and provided accurate, candid and timely advice throughout the process. She genuinely cares about her clients and her attention to detail is unparalleled.

    • We love Mark – He has been working with us for TWO YEARS! The first house we bid on had a faulty septic. His advice was fantastic and he was always available – even at weird times, as we were driving up from Brooklyn. When we finally found our house he held our hands through horrible experiences with our mortgage brokers and helped smooth things over on our behalf with the sellers. We are very lucky to have come across Mark! –(Jos and Aaron)

    Mary D’Allessandro-Gilmore

     

    • We are writing to complement the professionalism of our agent Mary D’Alessandro-Gilmore, her true caring nature, and extensive knowledge of the Schenectady/Niskayuna community. Mary carefully considers all of the needs of her clients and brings all of these qualities to the table for her clients. Her caring for her clients goes beyond the business of a real estate transaction, and extends into easing the transition to their new home.

     

    • We sold our home in December, 2015 after spending over thirty years in Niskayuna. We selected Mary as our realtor because she was the first to respond to our inquiries about the possibility of a sale in the near future. Though there was no immediate commitment to her services, Mary volunteered to conduct research and make inquiries on our behalf to help us prepare for a sale and related move. That was a good indication of the level of commitment Mary has to service. Throughout the home selling/settlement/moving processes, she was extremely responsive and thoughtful in her recommendations to us. Mary serves best by patiently guiding her clients to consider all aspects of critical decisions that will often shape the success and future satisfaction with their transition. I have owned other properties, and worked with a number of realtors, and Mary is the most customer focused and service-oriented realtor I have encountered. She even continues to check on our progress in settling in our new home in another state.

     

    • One final note, Mary was extremely helpful in assisting us in securing the services of other professionals associated with our sale. Her ability to call upon the resources of her office to help us secure necessary qualified legal services and quality movers added a value to our relationship beyond measure.

     

    • We highly recommend Mary D’Alessandro-Gilmore for her outstanding integrity and service. (P. & S. S.)

    •  Mary was wonderful! I am so glad she was our Realtor! All 5 out of 5’s (B & C. V.)

     

    • Mary is very knowledgeable about real estate, about people and relationship building. She is awesome. All 5 out of 5’s (R. & N. O’.)

     

    Mary Stapleton

     

    • "Our experience with Berkshire Hathaway and our realtor Mary Stapleton is one we wish for our friends. As first time homebuyers we were excited but cautious about such a big step and Mary was there to support us through the entire process. We had been using an app to track houses we were interested in and Mary was right in line with us, showing us the very homes we had saved on our list. It really showed us that she knew what we were looking for. She never pushed a property outside our price range or one that was missing key factors we wanted. Her response time was stellar, often within the hour even late in the evening! Her references for inspections and legal services were all very professional, communicative, and friendly, just like her. And... she handled all of this while we were overseas! That is how comfortable and trustworthy she is and why we can recommend her wholeheartedly. PS. Rudy loves it here!" (C.S.)

     

    •  It is my pleasure to recommend Mary Beaton Stapleton to you. I have known Mary for over 20 years. She was a top sales person for my fashion forecasting company TFS. We stayed in touch after the Company closed and became very good friends when she moved to Columbia County.

     

    • Mary then developed a career as a successful real estate broker. When I decided to sell my house and buy another one, she was with me every step of the way. She handled the transaction professionally and with great attention to detail. The sale and purchase went off without a hitch thanks to her work. I have really loved the house she found for me. I am able to have my photography studio here as well as a lovely home. Also, I was happy to be able to sell when I did at a time when the market was very difficult.

     

    • I can only speak works of praise for Mary and her sales abilities as well as her knowledge of the real estate market. She is also a caring friend and colleague. We continue to work together on various real estate projects. (M.A.)

     

    • Mary Stapleton is a terrific real estate broker. We recommend her without reservation. She helped us buy a house and sell a house, and was always available, thoughtful, and warm.

     

    • Mary was tireless in her advocacy for us. We had a house that was on the market for a long time and never felt she neglected us or our interests. She kept us informed, she tried different possibilities (rental vs selling, rental as a forerunner to selling) and ultimately was able to sell the house at a price that was even slightly higher than we had come to believe was possible. She is also just a pleasure to get to know. She is smart, funny, even-tempered and responsive. What more could you ask for in a broker? (M L-W.)

     

    • After spending almost two years trying to sell our building on River Street in Troy, we eventually hooked up with Mary. Within a couple of weeks she had a buyer for us and sold the building for more than we imagined we could get for it. She facilitated every part of the deal for us, and even went above and beyond during some of the hardest parts of it. I would use her again in a second. (R.H.)

     

    Melania Darling

     

    • My husband and I bought our home with the help of Melania Darling. From the very beginning she proved to be a huge help in the process.  She’s honest and hardworking. (NN)

     

    • She was helpful in making recommendations. When we found the home we wanted she took the time to help us with the paperwork. Even making after hours trips to our home for signatures. She also helped in faxing necessary information to our mortgage company.

     

    • The day of the closing she came up to our new home with dinner and flowers. A very thoughtful way to finish the deal!!

     

    • We would whole heartedly recommend Melania to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

     

    • Dear Melania, On behalf of my family and I, thank you so much for selling our house. After many years of trying to sell it with another agency, we became disenchanted with them, and then tried for several years to sell it on our own. That effort was also unsuccessful, and hence discouraging. So when you proactively left your business card at my door, and followed up with phone calls, I was skeptical even cynical. Wow-look how wrong I was! In just a matter of weeks you secured a Buyer! Beyond that, your steady guidance and reassurance throughout the whole process was indispensable- especially to folks like us who are not so familiar with the real estate world. Without you expertly handing negotiations and communications with the buyers, this transaction would not have been consummated. When we settle in, we would love to have you over for dinner in our new apartment. Gratefully, (E. H.)

     

    • Melania, you were a delight to work with. You were very efficient, professional, honest, knowledgeable, and continually kept us abreast of the status of matters.  There are a lot of Realtor’s in Columbia County to choose from and we are so glad that we found you! Thanks again and we look forward to working with you again in the near future. (L.R.)

       

       

    Melissa Hems

     

    • Melissa helped us to find our current home in Albany, NY. We had some very specific requirements and it took us close to 4 years to find a suitable house. Melissa never lost patience with us and, in all that time and through all of the houses that she showed us, we never felt pressured by her.   She also sold our previous Albany home, and made the process as seamless as possible. We would highly recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home. (JMW)

     

    • Melissa is the BEST!! I had the pleasure of working with her as a buyer and she impressed me so much I used her to sell my property . Her knowledge of the area is second to none. She works for you in every way. Always available and incredibly dedicated to her work. She will NOT stop until you aresatisfied. She is Amazing!! If you are looking to sell your home, or buy one Melissa Hems is the only choice for you if you want the job done right the first time. Don't try the rest Melissa is the BEST! (PDM)

     

    • Melissa is AMAZING! She helped my husband and I during a very difficult time. All of a sudden we had 3 homes to sell at once! Melissa helped us through this ordeal and sold all 3 homes in a very short time!

     

    • Melissa was extremely knowledgeable and gave great advice for staging and pricing.

     

    • Melissa made everything easy and stress free and followed us through the entire process.

     

    • Melissa is a sweetheart! I would recommend Melissa to everyone I know!

     

    Michael Pandolfo

     

    • "I am retired and have a home that I was no longer living in. I listed with Mike. He took great care of the home, keeping a watchful eye on the property and even sprucing it up with fresh mulch!! He was always very accessible- could be called at any time! Mike took the personal care I was looking for while providing the best outlets to get the home listed and sold." ~ Joyce ~ Halfmoon, NY

     

    • "He always stays on top of the process. Very dependable. Easy to get a hold of. I would highly recommend him to sell a home or help in purchasing a home." ~ Frank & Peggy ~ Schenectady, NY

     

    • "As a first time home buyer, Michael help me understand the process every step of the way. Very professional and informative. Extremely accommodating. Would recommend Michael to anyone and everyone." ~ Matt ~ Mechanicville, NY

     

    Monique Boulet

     

    • Thank you so much for the kind email... Please know that we think you did an EXCELLENT JOB in such a short period of time and feel very comfortable with you if we were to decide anything in the future. You are a ROCK STAR! Wishing you the best! (GM)

     

    • Very professional realtor, very nice to work with, personable, patient and knowledgeable. (B.H.)

     

    • “Monique is a great individual.  We have referred her already and would readily do so again!  She went above and beyond with both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home!”  (The L’s)

     

    • “Can’t recommend Monique highly enough….Fantastic to work with!”  (The G’s.)

    Nicolle Burton

     

    • I'd like to share my first time home buying experience with your realtor Nicolle Burton. Nicolle is amazing!! She helped us purchase our first home as of Sept. 14th. She went above and beyond in every facet of the buying process. She never left us feeling in the dark at any point in the processes and even became our "go-between" with the bank as they would not respond to any of our messages or emails. We more than highly recommend her as an agent. There aren't enough positive things to say about our experience with her. She is an outstanding agent who will go above and beyond your expectations.  Nicolle was in constant contact with us & explained every step and process - We could not have done this with any other agent as she made us feel comfortable asking questions…even stupid ones. :)   She was always there for me with any questions or concerns that I had; and was always willing to provide me with guidance when I needed it! I can't recommend her enough. Thank you. (J. & T. R.)

     

    Pam Marinello

     

    • "Pam, My husband Mike and I thank you for your professionalism and expertise in the selling of our home. We appreciate your availability and reassurance in a time that was very stressful for our family. We are now able to look forward to a new chapter in our life living near my parent's."  (terryannh3)

     

    • Pam has been with us since day 1, we were so lucky to find her at a local open house. Pam's your girl. I've experienced different types of agents and I can 100% say she is someone that will do whatever is in her power to help you close quickly, even when the other side is slacking. (MK)

     

    • I have known & worked with Pam Marinello for the better part of a decade. Pam recently sold our house and put us in our new home… my wife and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. She is a phenomenal sales associate and a wonderful person. I would be delighted to answer any specific questions regarding Pam’s exceptional performance…(JC)

     

    • We have been extremely fortunate to have Pam as our real estate agent. She has assisted us in buying our first and and now second home. Pam was very professional and was committed to helping us find our perfect house. She was so knowledgeable and really listened to what we were looking for. We highly recommend her to all of our friends and family. (K.K.S)

     

    • Pam Marinello has been our realtor for over 8 years now. She helped us sell our home and buy our dream home back in 2007, when we were a family of 2. She worked diligently to get us the best possible price for our home, and on the flip side, negotiate with the builder to get us in to our dream home at a reasonable price within our budget. Now, we are a family of 6 , and Pam has been very patiently working with us as we try to locate the ideal home for our large family. She is so knowledgeable in her field and is on point with her pricing and negotiating skills. She is sensitive to all parties and works so professionally to make sure both parties are satisfied and in the know. I highly recommend Pam. She is top notch! (M & G)

     

    • Pam did a great job representing us in our recent purchase. It was a short sale transaction and as such required skillful navigation of the process which included coordinating with the sellers listing agent, attorney and bank in addition to coordinating with our own attorney. Without Pam’s expect navigation and advice I doubt we would be in the house today! (DT)

     

    Patricia (Pat) Hoffman

     

    • Pat was referred by a friend, and it was an excellent and near perfect referral. I find Pat to be exceptionally knowledge of both the capital district and the sales process.  I was commuting up and down from NYC while shopping for the house. Pat's referrals for lawyer and mortgage were also ontarget. The whole experience was quite exceptional and generally went off without a hitch. (J.O.)

     

    Patti Bayly

     

    • Patti got our listing sold in less than 3 weeks. Patti’s creative marketing ideas and determination made it happen. It was a pleasure doing business with her. (H.N.)

     

    • “Patti is a real go-getter…available 24/7 and kept me in the loop every step of the way! You will get the result you want with Patti! She is flexible, available and was agreeable with my desires. She has the connections and networks to get things done! Patti makes sure the outcome will be positive. I can’t thank Patti enough for assisting me in my property transaction completed in such a short time.” (S.N.)

     

    • “Patti, as I sit here getting settled in my new home, I have to thank you so much for all you did to make the transition smooth. From the listing to the closing and beyond, you made the condo sale speedy, worry-free, and efficient. Your expertise showed in spades. And, then, after I moved out of state, you helped so much with the problems I had with forwarding the mail! The experience was more than I could have hoped for. I will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for an excellent realtor.”( T.C.)

     

    • “Ms. Bayly was extremely helpful in my search for a new apartment. I told her exactly what I was looking for and she set up several viewings for me and worked around my schedule. Thanks again, Patti, for helping me find the perfect place.” (…in less than a week!) (S.F.)

     

    Paul Bowers

     

    • The reason for this letter is to share my appreciation for the excellent service received from a member of your staff. It was through the efforts of Paul Bowers that Innovative Machining Services (I.M.S.) was able to purchase a new facility at 990 Kings Highway in Saugerties, New York. This has laid the ground work to be able to expand our manufacturing operations four-(4) fold. Considering the numerous obstacles faced and the depressed market conditions, this was quite an accomplishment.  Not only did he represent I.M.S.’s interest in a professional and favorable manner, but he negotiated a solid deal that worked for both parties involved. As a result of his constant attention to detail on our behalf of this process, many potential hiccups were minimized in order to get us in the premise in a timely manner. (R.S.B.)

     

    Paul Homin

     

    • Paul is terrific! Very knowledgeable about the local market and one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. We highly recommend Paul to anyone looking to purchase their next home. (ZU)

     

    • Paul is a wonderful person to have working for you. This was my first house buying experience and he helped us through all the steps.  He explains what is going on and how to negotiate the best price.  I ended up with the house of my dreams.  He is so pleasant and nice, and very responsive. I do   recommend him highly, you will not be sorry you hired him. (V.T.)

     

    • Paul Homin is a great agent. We worked with him for over a year, through the process of figuring out what we wanted, figuring out what we could actually afford, visiting houses all over the Capital District, and then going through the actual home-buying process. We really appreciated his patience,   his responsiveness, his perpetual positive attitude, and the great team he connected us with. (N.A.)

     

    • Paul is very helpful and responsive. He is honest and he has integrity. I could not have asked for a better realtor. I will use him again when I need him. (P.N.)

     

    • I have known Paul professionally for fifteeen years, so he was my natural choice when I decided to do some preliminary regional market research. Paul isn’t just an agent – he’s a consummate professional and will work for you like no one else will work for you. For example, on my lasttransaction, Paul recommended several home repairs to best maximize potential return on investment, and he developed a detailed project plan for me to follow without even asking and at no additional fee. Likewise, he advised against a couple of unnecessary upgrades I had originally planned on making. The result? More money ultimately in my pocket. Paul’s ethics and customer relations are above reproach, and has earned my continuing business (J.P.)

     

    • Paul helped my family to find our first home. He was very professional, patient, no pressure approach. Has excellent negotiations skills! All the time we feel, that he is putting our business first. Also he was ALWAYS available 24/7 (E.K.)

     

    Peter Forget

     

    • "Peter has been a great deal of help to my wife and I during our search for our first home. We are currently in the process of closing on our first home at a great price all thanks to Peter. When we first started looking at homes we had no idea how tough it would be to find the perfect home for us. Peter made this process as easy as possible with the knowledge of the area and expertise of the process. He always stayed in touch with us and kept us posted on new listing. He was always willing to accommodate my crazy schedule from week to week. My wife and I would highly recommend Peter if you are looking to buy/sell property in Columbia County." (cmillz969)

Richard successfully negotiated our purchase of an apartment complex that quite frankly had so many moving parts I began to lose heart that we could keep the deal together. Through Richard’s persistence and organized approach to each of the many obstacles we faced, we successfully closed on The Project. Richards calming personality and his extensive experience in the real estate sector makes him a key asset to our Team and a pleasure to work with (P.H.)

     

    Richard Kessler

    Robert Nazarian

     

    • Rob was amazing. He showed me dozens of houses, at times whenever was convenient for me, even if it wasn't convenient for him. He was quick to respond to all my texts, emails, and phone calls -- even during holidays! He routinely went above and beyond the call of duty. Plus, he's a genuinely nice and kind human being, and so personable and professional. I was very picky in what I wanted in a house, but I had strict constraints on price, location, and certain house features. Rob guided me through the long search process, and then when I finally found the right home, he expertly advised me through a multiple bid situation so that I was the winning bidder. He handled dozens and dozens of details, several of them unexpected or complex, including a complicated closing date rescheduling and a major appliance failing a week after closing. Through it all, he kept a great sense of humor and positive outlook, which I very much appreciated since purchasing a home is such a major life event and financial investment. I am recommending Rob to all my house-searching friends, and when it comes time for me to find my next home, Rob will be the first call I make. He's a great guy and I will miss my daily interactions with him now that the process is over! (Penny)

She allowed us to take the time to figure out what we were truly looking for, although her experience intuitively already knew! There was never a sense of pressure from Sandy as she truly wanted the experience to be a positive one. She responded very quickly to all of our questions and remained extremely accessible during the entire process. Sandy picked homes that fit our criteria, and continuously updated the thought process as she learned our likes and dislikes. She was highly respectful of our time and made every effort to manage our search efficiently. When we needed to move with urgency, Sandy dropped everything she was doing to drive the offer process with great speed on our behalf. The process of finding that perfect place to call home is exciting and at times stressful. We truly valued the partnership we had with Sandy and would highly recommend her. (B & M A.)

If you need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. (F.E)

I want to thank you for bringing me this opportunity on an almost exclusive basis I think both Rich the owner and I feel like we each obtained a very fair deal and are quite satisfied with the results. I appreciate your professionalism, knowledge of the marketplace and most importantly your vast network of contacts and connections. Hopefully we can do a few more deals like this in the future I would like to add another 2-3 properties to the ADK Holdings Group portfolio. Look forward to working with again in the future…. regards (Don)

    Timothy Doherty

     

    • Tim’s professionalism, knowledge, generosity is why I absolutely would not hesitate to use again or recommend him to family or friends.. If you’re looking for a real estate agent who truly is looking out for your best interest whether buying or selling Tim Doherty is the agent for you!!Both my better half and I started looking at purchasing our first home. We spent endless hours every week looking at houses, doing pros and cons sheets for the houses we are interested in looking at. We finally stumbled across a property that was listed in Tim’s name, and boy am I glad that we called him! Not only is Tim extremely easy to work with, his local knowledge of surrounding areas, types of houses, and materials used in said homes was far above what I expected Before contacting Tim, we would do quick drive-by viewings ourselves and if we liked it that much we would call the listing agent and we looked at a few houses that way. Tim also went the extra mile and sacrificing several hours every weekend to show us properties, because myself and my significant other work completely opposite shifts and were only together Saturday and Sunday. (B & S.)

     

    • Our dealing with Tim Doherty in his capacity working for the seller and us as the buyers was superb. He contacted us many times throughout the process of showing us the home, signing the contract, and being at the home or arranging access for the many inspectors or workers to ensure the purchase contract signed at the day of offer was executed in full at closing. Tim was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire real estate purchase process.  Well done Tim (E & S.)

     

    • Tim was a pleasure to work with. Tim walked us through the whole process. Very pleased. All 5 out of 5’s! (J.F.)

    •  Tim represented my wife and I for the purchase of our beautiful new home in Loudonville.  He was on top of all of our questions, and was very responsive whenever we reached out, which is probably the #1 thing that I value in an agent during the home buying process.  We would definitely recommend him to anybody looking for an agent that will give you 110% from start to finish! (R. & G. A.)

     

    • As a first time home buyer, I found Timothy to be very helpful in making this big decision. He was very knowledgeable about the buying process and patient with my many questions. He responded quickly to my calls and emails and was proactive in contacting the other agent and my attorney. He wasflexible with his time and availability to see different homes (or the same one several times ??). He negotiated a good price and worked hard to move the process along. Timothy's personality is one that makes you feel confident in his expertise while feeling comfortable during this exciting time.  I highly recommend Timothy Hallenbeck (S.P.)

     

    Tina Stehlin

     

    • “Tina Stehlin is an awesome realtor! We thought we would never sell our home in Schenectady. She went above and beyond for us. Tina was honest and persistent. Other realtors we’ve worked with just listed our house on a website and hoped the website would do the work for them-not Tina! She won’t let you down.” She also provided us with many helpful staging tips that I know helped to sell our home. She’s got a great eye for home design and staging. Within 2 weeks of our house being on the market we had several offers and sold! I would highly recommend Tina as your realtor.–(S.B.)

     

    • “Tina is an exceptional real estate agent!!!  She helped my mother-in-law sell her house for very close to asking price.  She spent an entire Sunday staging the house so it would be reflected as its best in photographs.  She went on to take beautiful eye-catching photos and wrote up a great listing description.  She advertised the house through her many advertisement channels.  The house was sold in about 3 months despite a highly competitive market!  She also was extremely responsive and kept in contact with us throughout the whole process.  This was a very emotional transaction like a lot of home sales because my husband’s family had lived in the house for decades.  Tina was there for us both professionally and for the emotional support.  We couldn’t have been happier!  We would highly recommend her!” Regards, (C.H)

     

     

    • “Tina was an amazing agent when we were looking to buy our first home. She was very patient with us and extremely helpful. Each house we looked at, she gave us her honest opinion and offered different ideas and points of view to consider. She was right there for us through the whole process, day or night and inspection after inspection. I highly recommend Tina for anyone that’s looking for an agent that is willing to give it their all and provide excellent guidance and knowledge.” -M.G.

     

     

    Wendi Gross

     

    • We wanted to take this moment to thank you for your hard work. Working with you has been a pleasure, especially since my last experience working with other relators was nothing short of disastrous. The search for a new home actually began in October 2016. I first worked with a realtor from the capital region who was willing to show me houses, but who had no knowledge of the area in which we had interest. On more than one occasion he pointed us in a different direction and discouraged is from placing a bid on several houses. He was condescending and treated us as first time buyers who did not know what we wanted in a house. His arrogance and rudeness eventually led to his dismissal. Afterwards we contacted other realtors who were non-responsive to our calls or claimed low inventory, when in fact there were homes available on the MLS. Then the last realtor just wanted to show me homes in his area of interest, even when I suggested another area. All this culminated in a referral to from our home lender. I was informed that you were pleasant, professional and a very hard worker for your clients. I was not disappointed from the moment I called you. Within the day, you had sent me a list homes from the MLS that met our criteria in the desired area; by the end of the week we had several appointments arranged in our desired area. Within a week or two we found a house and placed a bid that was accepted. You were very helpful throughout the entire bidding process, inspection and closing. You were truly invested in our welfare and excitement of a new house. It is without hesitation that I can truly say your a great realtor, not just good, but great. You are more than just professional, your are a caring person who takes interest in the client, very patient and attentive to details. Your were quick to respond with questions and concerns. We would like to think that we now a have friend, not just a realtor. Just think, the search began in October 2016 and we happily closed on June 2017 with more of a house than we expected. All this was possible because of you. Thank you, thank you and thank you. (Fabian)
    • Recently I was assisted in selling my home in Petersburgh, NY.  It is a unique property in that it is an authentic log cabin, which has the look & feel of a rustic home,  in the woods.  It is isolated from services, neighbors, shopping.  Upon meeting Wendi Gross, we agreed it was a 'unique' kind of property,  which would appeal to a certain type of buyer.It was built in the 70's and few modern touches had been added. And lo & behold, after numerous Open Houses,  and showings,  a buyer was found who was the exact match for the property & vice versa.  I was beyond happy to know my precious property would be cared for by it's new owner. Working with Wendi was a joy.  She always responded to my communications.  She was helpful,  generous with her time; always ready to answer any questions or concerns. She always responded in a timely manner no matter what. She was very respectful of my privacy, consulting with me, always making sure not to intrude on my 'quiet' time. One hears selling a house can be a brutal experience.  But fortunately for me, Wendi was working for me.  I always felt confident she would succeed because of her professionalism, and work ethic.  SoI am more than happy to provide this recommendation for her. Respectfully,  (DS)

     

    • Wendi we want to honestly thank you for everything you have done. You have gone above and beyond. We wouldn’t have gotten through the USDA process without you! (N.S.)

     

    • My wife and I worked with Wendi Gross to find a home after moving to the Albany region. Wendi was a pleasure to work with. She was fast, efficient, and responsive to our needs. She showed us a number of homes, identified what we really wanted, and worked hard for us. We ended up finding a great home where we look forward to raising our family. I’d highly recommend Wendi to anyone looking for real estate in the Albany region. Cheers, (K. R.).

     

    • I am pleased to recommend Wendi Gross as a qualified realtor for your next home purchase or sale.  Wendi was referred to me by a friend when I began my housing search process, and we came to know each other quite well during the spring and summer of 2016 through the process of buying my first home. Wendi proved herself to be exceptional to work with as she walked me through all stages of searching for and purchasing a home to include putting in an offer, having an inspection, obtaining estimates for work needed, negotiating concessions and all other steps leading up to the closing.  She sets herself apart from others in the profession with her attentiveness and responsiveness to returning emails and phone calls, and also in seeking out additional information when it is beneficial to the buyer. Another of her strengths is that she works very well with lawyers, mortgage brokers, fellow realtors and all others involved. Prior to beginning the home purchasing process and to selecting a realtor, I knew I wanted someone who was not only knowledgeable about the real estate market, but also a professional who would put forth the extra effort to assist me and to understand my parameters around buying a home. Wendi met my expectations and was an immense help to me throughout the recent months.  For the reasons above and also her kind nature and easygoing personality, I highly recommend Wendi Gross. She has the necessary background and work experience as well as the interpersonal and collaboration skills to assist buyers and sellers from all walks of life. Please do not hesitate to contact me with further questions and/or to discuss my experience with Wendi further. (K.T.)
